Sophomoric mistake by Byram.

Poor goal to concede, Sturridge lost his marker way too easily... I thought it was Cress at fault

You're right, but no excuse for Cress to let him stroll past - he didnt even know he was there!

OK, a few little things. West Ham have, to my mind, not played badly. They are seriously outgunned, but they've created two, maybe three clear chances. They could easily be on level terms right now. I won't rule out a comeback in the second half.

Predictably all the pundits are tossing themselves off over Liverpool at the break.
More proof we need a goalscoring striker I think...Not one 'expert' has mentioned how severely depleted our squad is which shouldn't surprise us though - COYI!

Lacking intensity overall, beaten by a much better side.
Contributed to our own downfall to be honest with another unacceptable throwing in of the towel. Very disappointing.

3 k run and a dip in the pool and I still have that fecking Ref in my head, how could he not see that?? I know we were poor but at 2 1 it could have change the game. It would be a lot less stressful if I did not like football

If Bilic wasnt a former hammer i think a lot more would be calling for him to go
spurs win has probably saved him but it doesnt fill me with much confidence for next season

Ive backed him but am also realistic. too many poor performances. ok we are safe but they should play to end of season. hull gone so silva is an obvious candidate. id weigh it up if I were board

You beat me too it Harry, but I'm sure people know my thoughts on the manager. Like you say I'm sure the Spurs game has saved bilic and maybe the fact that a lot of our players have now taken early operations rather than see the last 2 games out. With a bit of luck the board may change their minds if we get a similar performance last game.sending the fans off on their holidays with a performance like that just isn't right. I noticed the minute bilic made his subs we collapsed.changing the formation made it so simple for them.

Its a sad indictment on us that our best player has such a minimal effect and to me its frightening how much excess we're carrying and the numbers of new players we are going to need Fonti ,Byram ,Feg ,Noedviet ,Ayew , Calleri ,Snodgrass. Along with whoever is responsible for signing this tosh need their pictures

That we were going to get anything out of this game,considering the line-up?
We had half a team out through injuries,& apart from Lanzini,reid,ginge & adrian imo the rest are pretty much deadwood that need to be got rid off!!Big changes in the summer needed,with proper investment or we will struggle again next time out!!

No more 6 or 7 mill signings ,i reckon we will have to send BIG time.i agree with you on your assessment about the line up we held our own for the first ten minutes after that it went downhill fast the odd long ball but rarely got into their box there was no bite in midfield and worse again up front this guy Calleri is a joke

we had 8 players missing / not available, I think they had 2. They are a top four side and looked worthy of that position. Had we being playing also rans we could of got away with it. I question the attitude of all on the pitch was not acceptable and I mainly question the Bilic move of removing the back 3 and revert to a flat back four... it didnt work and in a blink we were 2 nil down and game over. This was a poor decision and he needs to stand up and recognise that.

disagree. tired of hearing that we had so and so out etc. all teams have players out..this is why we should have bought better back up players. we had nordveit, ayew, fonte, fernandez, feghouli…all players recruited for exactly this purpose yet we were poor. i also don't rate liverpool. owen and carragher may think they are the greatest thing around but for me any team with milner at left back and a dodgy central defence and keeper is lucky to be top 4.

Spot on dicks. Probably the most over-rated team ATM. Just because the are media darlings.

3rd in the league, 73 points says to me they are a top side and this season we have been poor (bar Spudz) against top teams. Nordveit (seen as a big loss at BMG by the fans) , Ayew (panic buy), Fonte (filler for Oby), fernandez (potential), feghouli (unknown and I think was very lively when he came on)... all average at best. The hope being some of the average become good. The market is VERY competitive and we will never attract the big names until we make champions league. Example - we are linked with Dries Mertens at Naples, well guess what so is Chavski and Mancs.. so guess where he will go... Not to the LS! You have to be realistic, we are limited to the unknowns and make them better... Payet, Lanzini, Reed etc etc You maybe tired of hearing about injuries well Im tired of hearing we are the Academy and life was so much better at the Boleyn

but its the same old excuses. don't we get tired of saying that 'no one good will come to us?'. why accept this excuse? clubs around us find better players than us season after season…its not good enough. its someone's highly paid job to recruit quality. you mean to tell me the best we can hope for is feghouli and calleri each year because we are not top 4? come on.

up

Why can't we attract the quality that soton halve? We should be competing with the players they want at least! Or maybe that their managers have got more from their players than our managers have! Bilic has been charge of several players that have had a spectacular fall from grace! Fonte, snodgrass and cresswell stand out by miles along with a few others. Infact has bilic actually improved ANY player during his tenure?

Because in fairness mate it's not so much an excuse but more of a reality. It's A fact that we can't at this stage of our development that big signings will come our way. The board panics and buys for the sake. I'm as frustrated as you, spent a fortune on going to all the games and had dross served up. I'm a realist with some optimism:o)

but you keep missing the point mate. no one is saying 'big name signings'. its not costa or bale we expect. there is however a lot better than what we got this time around. look at southampton and other clubs around us and see who they bought and the sort of impact they made with their teams. hell even palace splashed out of bent eke and townsend who would be better than calleri and feghouli. livermore or carroll better than nordveit. gabbiadini better than zaza. its o.k to get one or two duds, thats life but we haul in our nets bulging full of duds.

wow... you are bench marking us with Southampton and Palace, separated by a massive 4 points, who said aspiration was dead. At least give me the best of the rest... Everton. You seriously want Benteke? Do you have no Palace mates? he's a journeyman plum. No one disputes the signings were poor particularly Zaza and Calleri, it was no surprise to those in know... which by was not me. IMO Carroll, sick note in hand is still by far the best player we have in the squad and for what its worth Figgy has more talent than Ayew, calleri and most in the set up.... watch this space. Been on the piss in Germany and time for bed, good night and god bless.

Benteke v Calleri? well bent eke for me. people forget what he did at villa very quickly. he's also similar in style to carroll so imo would have slotted in very well. plus hes a belgian international so can't be as bad as you make out.

your turn to miss the point. Theres no comparison, Calleri is an unknown loanee that no one has or had heard of until we got him. Benteke is a well know overated Belgian that cost Liverpool £32M and flopped and Palace £27M and again a flop... no comparisons. Agree at Villa he was good but that was a long time ago.

I'm not sure you say benteke has been a flop at palace. Sounds a bit harsh to me.

havnt missed the point thats exactly the point. palace spent money on a striker we didnt. his return and performance for palace is far better than calleris and zazas put together. oh and 15 goals this season is a flop? hmm.

Dartford Bhoy's picture

15 goals is not a kings ransom and he lost them the game against us at SP... one of the worst pens I have ever seen and his touch was appalling. Personally I pleased that G&S didnt splash out on him, we agree Calleri is crap but so far no money lost on him and same with Zara being a loan. On paper... an Italian international striker from one of the biggest clubs on the planet certainly looked like a great idea. Anyway... I stop now... too much respect for you, we agree to differ :o)

I'm certainly not arguing that lakaku knocks spots off benteke.id say benteke is over priced but I just can't help comparing benteke to calleri despite the price. I got a hunch benteke could get back to his villa days but someone has got to find out what makes him tick, like they did at villa. Price wise he is a lot of money but since the new prem money everyone has been over priced by about 10 mill. A lot of us think we should get a world beater for that but no longer.
