Leicester are well on top .Westham are really struggling to get their rhythm.Not impressed with the performance ,few changes at half time needed in formation and personnel.

Yes agree Leicester seem to be a lot quicker and a lot more hungry for the ball unfortunately !

Been dominated by Leicester in the first half. No rhythm whatsoever. Need to change all that at half time. Reece has been poor, and been giving the ball away to often. Zarate has missed a sitter. Come on Bilic, please turn things around.

Should have been a penalty and a sending off for the keeper. Linesman should have spotted it. Leicester are off the hook.

Yeah we've been poor, allowed Leicester to dictate the pace. Need to take it to them, although that might end up in letting them hit us on the break... but must be done.

No yellows for time wasting. Dives from Leicester bought by the referee. Great to see Lanzini coming on.

This idiot of a referee is biased against West Ham. Should have red carded the Leicester keeper and awarded West Ham a penalty. Then he sends off Adrian for an unintentional foul. He was the same referee that sent off Carlton Cole a couple of seasons ago for a similar foul to Adrian. The red card was appealed and rescinded. I think that this referee is a Spuds fan as he has done his best to screw us repeatedly.

So West Ham: win a game everyone expected us to lose, lose a game we expected to win. Have our only keeper sent off in the opposition's box!!! I've never seen that before! VERY harsh decision and hopefully rescinded, this ref has form. Rob Green in goal next week?

And apparently Bournemouth put EIGHT past him at Birmingham!!! So not a good game for his PL début! Hopefully the idiot red card will be rescinded as almost all Taylor's red cards are. Can't imagine how he is still reffing PL games.

The ref had a mare yesterday, the incident where schmeichel took out sakho,i thought at the time it was a penalty,and
after seeing it again on motd-defo pen for me....the linesman should have flagged too!oh well what can you do!

it was a good game, draw would have been a fair result, the ref was awful. Have to disagree with a lot of the comments, thought the guys were hungry and a bit unlucky not to come away with a win.

A really disappointing result ,expected a lot more after that Arsenal performance .First half, Leicester fully utilised their strengths ,primarily their pace(Vardy in particular) ,but also played a good pressing and pass and movement game.Westham struggled to get into their stride ,they just couldn't get into the game,and assert themselves,in fact, they looked like the away side.First half was poor ,Ranieri had done his homework,man marking Westham's dangerman,Payet, and in effect making the attack toothless.Leicester's slick passing and fluid movement was very good ,especially for an away side,who I thought would be on the back foot most of the game.Westham struggled in that first half to bring the ball out of defence,there was no movement from the midfield players to pass to,Leicester ,harried and harassed playing a high pressing game,it was very reminiscent of the Allardyce days,square passes and back to goalie.The high tempo game from Westham that I was expecting never materialised.Second half saw an improvement with the substitutions,but the damage was done,Leicester held out.I think the team will struggle for goals without Payet ,who has created and scored most of them so far,the team is too reliant on him .Must get Song in,his midfield influence Westham need , he makes things happen going forward.Still feel that Westham don't have enough quality up front

But we should have had at least a point from this game.Referee was a disgrace (how many times have we said this)
leicester had a 10 minute spell in the first half in which we fell asleep & they scored twice & we gave ourselves a mountain to climb.Apart from that spell we were all over them just couldnt put the ball in the net.I admit i dont know what adrian was doing up that end but hopefully common sense will prevail & it will be rescinded.Leicester are not a good side it was just a bad day at the office for us imo,i reckon this season is going to be one where anyone can beat anyone so i wouldnt get too depressed about today.leicester imo will be lucky to survive as for us i cant believe some people think we will struggle,we will finish at least mid-table no problem...

Watched the post match interview on the game with Bilic on the OS, impressed by what he said.Never easy giving interviews after a defeat, but the guy gave an honest ,no BS,assessment of the team performance.I liked his analysis of the first half performance and the corrective measures he felt he had to make for the second half,technically he knows his stuff.I do feel he will be stunted like previous managers,and no doubt,frustrated, because of the lack of finances and the way he would like to transform the squad,but I feel there is enough quality in the squad as a whole to assure a decent season with the addition of another midfielder and forward.How long it will take Bilic to get his team playing the football he wants is another matter,but from what we have already watched there is no denying there is an improvement in style.He next has to determine what are the best formations to suit the strengths of his players and how to adapt them according to opposition ,which will take time......just hope it doesn't take too long!

I've been on hols so missed out on the punch up with Bilic. I really felt that we missed him on saturday, coming off the bench he really makes a difference and I am sad that he will obviously move on. I note that Hull City may entertain a swap deal for Tom Huddlestone who for me is overrated, overpaid and over weight! Never really fulfilled the potential as a kid with Derby IMO
