Hmmn Ogbonna instead of Diop? Good to see the 'General' back, but at the expense of Diop instead of Ogbonna? Diop's performances have been 'questionable' since Balbuena has been injured, but surely this was the game to bring him back with his original 'partner in crime'?

Not an over reaction to tonight, more the thought of the Everton game but... I cant see us getting any more points this season. I think the El Pel honeymoon could be over mainly because the porn dwarfs did back him to the tune of £100M and still we are bottom half of the table :o(

We are lucky we had a soft run of games in Dec and picked up the bulk of our pts.

Good point buddy, the money is important but its what you do with it and clearly we didnt get our value for money. Could be worse, look at Fulham! Personally I haven't had value for money at the Bowl of Misery for 3 seasons. Still good to be there if only for meeting up with family and fiends even if we leave depressed! KTF!!!

Scholes bleating on about Rice needing to move to Man city or man ure. So many pricks tonight. Two weeks as Oldham manager, why don't we discuss that eh paul?

Apparently Nasri warmed up on the pitch before the start, but was not on the bench. Typical West Ham jinx as he may have picked up yet another injury. I fault Anderson for the second goal, as Cresswell cleared the ball from a more central position and Anderson instead of covering him was actually strolling back, until it was too late to make that tackle on that HAZARDOUS guy. West Ham definitely need a few creative midfielders in the summer transfer. I guess 11th will be the more realistic spot for them if they can fend off the likes of Crystal Palace!!

Huh? We have Anderson, lanzini, nasri, yarmalenko, diangana, Wiltshire. How many do you think we need?

up
5 users have voted.

A need for More Creative ones. Nasri and Wheel Chairs are injury ridden. I would play Anderson as a Centre Forward. He is pretty poor when defending. Yarmalenko has barely proven himself before suffering that injury. Pity as his game was picking up. Diangana needs more game time in the Under 23s.

Look at Watford cup final for them. Still putting it in in league too. Seems some teams only ambition is staying up once that's done don't wanna strain themselves.

Well I feel depressed after most game this season ,but tonight it's extra painfull ,not because we lost ,did we honestly think anything else was possible? ,or because that game epitomized the gulf in the prem ,it's because so much was expected by so many irons fans this season ,I really believed the 100 grand spent would make a difference ,that we might indeed be top 6 material never mind the fact that we spent 40 years lookin for some silverware, that's half a lifetime ,Jesus, and the awful thing is nothing can change ,not one of us can say goodbye and good luck I'm going to support shity or the bin dippers ,like it or not we're destined to spend the rest of our lives in this predicament ,like a few on here I'm approaching autumn and I'd like ,just once for us to win something , if it's not to gloomy a little story ,over here the game of hurling is number 1 and a mate of mine was saying a last weepy goodbye to his dad who was about to meet his maker ,my buddy said with a tear in his eye " I'm only sorry for one thing pop ,you won't see our beloved Clare win an all Ireland before you go " ( F A cup ) ,his dad mustered one last effort, looked looked him in the eye and said "nore will you son ,nore will you "
Feels like that with with our dear old hammers sometimes

well its not as bad as you make out imo. we're in the prem league. look at the massive clubs that just want to be where we are. don't ask me why, as the prem league has become a farce as you say. its just for the rich clubs. even like I said below, the pundits just talk about anyone outside the top 6 having their players join them. its never a case of oh yes Rice is a great player and will serve west ham well for years - its all, yeah city need a replacement for fernandiho, rice will be going there.

Yes every big club outside the prem wants to be there,especially clubs like Leeds who probably will make it at last...we are there & we are safe granted but where are we heading? Said it before ,weve lost a lot of our identity & for lots of people that connection too for what?battling with relegation most seasons & at best mid-table mediocrity...Sounds familiar to me

I agree and this is the problem. but now that we know we cant compete with the 'elite', we shouldn't set our expectations so high I guess, sad that that is. we're never going to be a city or Chelsea. so what's left? top 8? top 10? I always figured around those expectations and a good cup run, however there seems a distinct lack of ambition in the cups and this needs addressing by El Pel next season.

Thats why it was so frustrating the way we went out to Wimbledon.

But once again a lazy start to a match El Pel playing Arnie wide ffs from the start you could see how disinterested he is and for the manager to then say the usual about our poor performance in first half...if he cannot motivate the players and the players cannot get motivated then blood some of the kids drop Anderson he was strolling around with head in the clouds all night so poor it was criminal...but as you have no fear of being dropped it will not change...yes we have had a helluva lot of injuries but that cannot be blamed for players with a very poor attitude/
