This, quite simply was a woeful game of football. These were two teams who promised so much yet delivered so very little.
Despite the sending off of Allan McGregor, Hull were the better team during a game conducted in a rather poisonous atmosphere but at the end of it all I guess what mattered was three precious points.
However, the home fans grew increasingly frustrated with the Hammers seemingly lacking the desire and imagination to go and win the game.
There were boos at the end of the match, with many fans heckling both Sam Allardyce and his players.
That wasn’t too surprising and the Hammers boss will have to significantly improve this team if he is to win many of the the fans over once again.
