West Ham sets new record

westhamrecordWest Ham have lost five of their opening six Premier League games for the first time in their history. So we have officially had the worst start to any Premier League season after yesterday’s embarrassing 3-0 defeat.

After scoring in the last 18 Premier League matches we failed to score a goal for the first time since February.

Last season at the six game point, we had a goal difference of plus six after scoring 13 goals and conceding just seven, four of them on one game against Bournemouth.

This season is a complete reverse scoring seven goals but conceding 16 leaving us on a goal difference of minus nine.  We have conceded 11 goals in the last three games.

  1. With all due respect to Mark Noble, things can get worse because there are no signs of any improvements . Our new stadium whilst firing up the opposition teams , is snuffing out the fire we once had burning . I don’t agree that it’s too early to panic . In fact it is the complete opposite, now is the Perfect time to panic ., because if we don’t react soon and get it together relegation could become a very real possibility . To keep saying I have faith in the squad and Bilic to turn things around is starting to look a little like Blind Faith . At one stage against Southampton I saw four defenders all running towards the same ball !!. WTF .
    We have no shape and players are running into areas they no business being in and leaving us wide open to be cut wide open . The only way now to earn a few points seems to counter attacking football ,, not good when the LS is supposed to be our home ground .
    The Fans are too far away from the pitch side and the players are too far away from the ball . We are not playing as a unit and it needs sorting sooner rather than later . I haven’t lost faith , but it’s getting harder and harder to keep it . Been through this pain too many times now and I am becoming ” comfortably numb ” .

  2. I blame the transfer policy in the summer,whether the resposibility was down to Sullivan or Slav is largely irrelevant,but they seemed to sign players who were not up to Premier league standard (I don’t need to name them) thus you have a situation whereby the first teamers are going to get picked every week until the injuries are cleared up.Yesterday’s “team” is probably it and add Collins,Oxford and maybe Feghouli and thats it.So for the next few matches the first team are the ones that have to turn this around.If they all had Antonio’s spirit,no matter how naive his positional sense is,we can get out of this.

  3. I don’t think anyone in their right mind is blaming the stadium, even though it si different and other teams look forward to playing there.
    Our confidence is gone and that can lead to disaster, unless it is corrected. The only way to do that is an influx of players who are not affected by it yet. When the injuries ease up ( especially Carroll and Cresswell ), we will have those players.
    I am very concerned though that some of our key players have not put in a shift this season.
    Even Payet, who though he scored a brilliant free-kick, has been nowhere near effective, and his body language shows more disinterest than anything. Kouyate is the worst case. After a much improved 1st half, he dissappeared after going 1-0 down.
    It reminds me too much of last season at Chelsea, when Hazard was refused a transfer to Real Madrid, and decided to saunter through games with very little effort. Payet would be grizzled by being refused a transfer to PSG, and Kouyate ? I wouldn’t be surprised if he was tapped up by Spurs, who eventually went elsewhere to sign holding players.
    Of course others like Zaza have been ineffective, but it’s up to the others to step up and be counted, but they ain’t doing that.

  4. Watching us yesterday was embarressing, not one single player gave 100% for the whole game. Lanzini did nothing, i didn’t hear Payet’s name mentioned for the first 20 min & even most of his passes were off, Zaza….£25m……?? We look like rabbits in headlights in defence & every team look like they could score everytime they attack, school boy defending & thats being generous. If teams like Watford, WBA & Saints rip us apart we need to worry big time. 3 points out of 18 is dire & if Slav doesn’t turn it around fast he will be gone which is the last thing I want, I still think he is the right man for us at this time.
    from the very 1st game this season we have been the same, even before the PL started there has been one embarressment after another. We were lucky against Bournemouth & we could have had only 1 point.

    • I agree with you. I think the players have crapped on Bilic, but he will eventually take the blame if he can’t fix it. But who could they bring in at this time. I don’t even like to think about that.
