You’re not famous anymore

West Ham supporters sang ‘You’re not famous anymore’ to Manchester United supporters at the London Stadium along with ‘You’re not Man United anymore’

Ironically Manchester United sang back the un-original ‘You’re not West Ham anymore’ used by many away fans since our move away from the Boleyn Ground.

Today was probably the worst Man United team I have ever seen the Hammers play and I could easily understand why they haven’t won away since March and the trouble they are now in. They lacked any confidence and squandered chance after chance with superb help from our own Fabianksi to deny them any chance of a goal.

The away fans were right, we aren’t the West Ham of old. Despite missing Manual Lanzini and Arthur Masuaku we were able to bring quality off the bench in the gusie of Aaron Cresswell and Pablo Fornals without sacrificing too much quality.

We were also able to bring on the likes of Jack Wilshere, Pablo Zabaleta and Robert Snodgrass late in the game rather than rely on one good position for each position.

I would rather be the new West Ham in the London Stadium than the hapless Manchester United this season.

Just goes to show that money doesn’t buy you everything!

  1. Agree it was a pretty poor Man U side but ‘squandered chance after chance’ ?

    You must have been watching a different game to me today Sean!

  2. Why does everyone keep praising Anderson, I don’t think he does much imo. Did nothing against Villa and did nothing against Man Utd worthwhile.

    • Bamboo, you were obviously making a cup of tea or something when Anderson put the perfect pass to Yarmolenko for him to score our first goal!

    • Yeah Anderson only assisted Yarmolenko and was involved in everything good we did going forward, but didn’t deserve any praise at all!!! Pipe down.

  3. I’d rather have this squad and be at re-developed Upton Park with a 45,000 capacity but we all have to move on. The Olympic stadium did buzz a bit yesterday and if we ever get safe standing it could be fantastic.
