but we did not help matters, up until today I thought Moyes has been doing ok. BUT he knows how they play and he should know how to prevent that, but what does he do, he puts Arny up front and runs around like a headless chick, which means they are attacking with 10 and we are defending with 9. I don't think they were that good, we were very poor

i agree. i thought moyes was doing ok too but over the last few games i don't think he can do a lot. i accept this squad is not up to more than fighting a relegation battle again next season. if we get some players in then maybe moyes can change his approach but i have doubts. i just don't see where the club is heading anymore. our board won't allow us to move forwards in large steps with big investment, so that means unless we punch above our weight we just will be another season/s doing the same things. moyes is moyes, you know what you will get, but then again the worry is if you ditch him, who will this board bring in? no one with some new ideas, and a new approach to playing that at least evens the playing field against bigger clubs…so we're just floating aimlessly around the prem imo.

We are no longer floating around the prem, we are splashing around drowning. It's hard to give any positives from Moyes over the last 3 games! It all looks predictably negative. Not interested in giving it a real go.

The team just showed up for the last ten minutes of the first half and then gingerly strolled around for the remaining forty five minutes of the second half. The City keeper was not tested at all in the second half and could have gone for a beer or two and then reappeared just to applause his team for scoring 2 goals in that half. So are the team going to be docked 80/90% of their salaries for just showing up for those ten minutes? Wrong time to have brought Chicharito when 1-4 down and just trying to avoid damage control. He lacks any defensive duties. Masuaku was poor as well, and Mario should have tried to hit the target but just could not control for the only "half attempt" on target in the second half. Carroll was ticked off for not being given an opportunity. If we go down, then we may follow Sunderland's example as they are now relegated and the club is being sold for nothing just to avoid total bankruptcy.

How embarrassing that there is only one claret and blue team in the Premiership worth talking about.

While I agree that the three fucks are the cause of our downfall you have to take into consideration the gulf between us and them they are proberble in the top 6 or 7 teams in the world .not making excuses but they make the next 6 below them look ordinary
But the real difference is their structure ,when they decided they were going to be a top English side they meant it unlike our lot who thought move to a big stadium and the rest will follow ,They bought world class managers to the club ,then they bought world class players then they bought in the best manager in the world ,just compare their way of doing things to ours ,it's down to this if we do survive then the 3 amigo s have to sell up and fuck off because one things for sure we definitely won't survive another with them running things in the words of a Phil Coulter song about the troubles in northern Ireland "the town I love so well " what's won is won and what's lost is lost and gone forever .stick with it lads we owe it to the great players who have graced the glorious claret & blue shirt

Moyes wtf was that...as fans we already new this was going to be hard and prob get beat so nothing to lose so why not send a team out to try and win?i watched the opening five minutes that was enough for me the lack of ambition to try and win a game makes me shake my head in disbelief and when I saw the result later I was not surprised....this mans the future? don't make me laugh....he is pinning hopes on pinching points from Leicester and everton he wont even try in the manure game......and the Leicester game well after there thumping at palace they will be determined not to let that happen again and put record straight.....so its all going to come down to the everton game ohh how bfs is looking forward to that.

Regardless of all the issues surrounding the unholy trinity and Moyes, the players today must feel some shame at their lack of passion and commitment yesterday. Yes, they were playing the prem champions but were beaten by a team playing at walking pace, it looked like an over 60's walking football game. I think we have now at our lowest, this for me was the worst display I have seen this season. It had nothing to do with the London Stadium, in fact when we pressed a little in the first half the atmosphere was great, no, its all down to individuals who chose not to care as much as fans on the day. City could have got more, we could have been really embarrassed. I think we need 3 points but no idea were they will come from. High tempo Leicester will give nothing, possession style MU wont give up the ball easily and its all down to Allardyce to nail the coffin. Hope I prove to be wrong.

i agree. i wonder if the moyes contract situation is now affecting players attitudes? they say its never a good idea to let players know if a manager's future is in doubt. with moyes contract running down, is it getting harder for him to be able to kick a few behinds and have any effect?

Lot's of different excuses mounting up. The big picture doesn't look good. Just take a look at how Crystal Palace have been playing for weeks now -- yet they don't have a side that's a whole lot better than ours. Look at the passion that Stoke put into their play at Liverpool and at West Ham. They very nearly beat us, and they very nearly beat Liverpool (just after the Pieters handball, while Poo were still in shock, they came very close to scoring at the other end). Look at Southampton's determination to fight and get a second against Bournemouth (and look at Soton's all out final defensive stand). Even WBA, FFS, stuck it to Manure on their patch. Yet we roll over and die against Arsenal, and then really don't give a rat's arse against City. Tell me if I'm wrong, but at the moment it looks like WBA to go down and the rest is between Huddersfield Swansea an West Ham. I don't like the looks of THAT!

I think you make a good point and the short contract was a sloppy and cheap idea. Sack him if we fail and if he shows success getting again on the cheap was the strategy of the porn twins. The players have lost all respect and show absolutely no desire to play for him or us THE FANS! Im feed up with going week in week out and seeing zero work rate. Shearer sums it up well... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43945154

As a fan, I could only listen to what that whole panel said and shake my head in shame. I don't like Alan Shearer as a commentator, but I couldn't say he was wrong. And he rattled off the list of heavy defeats 4-1, 4-1, 4-1 ... like a refrain in some ghastly funeral service. We could get done at Leicester, too -- it ain't gonna be no walk in the park!!!! Wasn't too long ago that Crystal Palace seemed a dead certainty for the drop. How fortunes change when you have desire, belief, graft.

My God Bonds must shaking his at the lack of commitment 65, shame on them all yesterday! Other teams with a much lesser squad gave City a match particularly Wigan!

The atmosphere is good for 5 mins,then for 85 mins (or if theres any one left by the end)it's the toxic groan from 20 odd thousand plastics in the stadium.that my friend is what makes the place so unappealing!!

The team makes the atmosphere, high work rate and make chances lifts people off the seats and gets them behind the team. For the record I never leave early but understand why it happens. Where I sit in Trevor Brooking upper we have no plastics, they are all solid Hammers from a very wide range of backgrounds.

There are still a lot of proper westham fans that go.though I've been in the Trev upper & lower a few times & i must have gone to the wrong games then!!for me win,lose or draw there was a time when there was more a togetherness,I don't get that feeling anymore...my own experience that's all

I think the problem 65 is that quite a lot of season tickets get resold and hence see new faces regularly but in the main they are all West Ham just from different backgrounds.
