What a prick of a pass by Noble, what the hell was he thinking.

What the shit is wrong with these arseholes, do they really need to show how biased they are toward West Ham by ignoring blatant fouls against us.

See what happens when we press the ball further up the field- Seeing as we are going in level and we are the home team, I expect a lot more of this second half from Slav.

Yes agree .. Don't know why but we always seem to appear far too laid back when we are at Home during the first 20 minutes or so for some unknown reason in the majority of games we play over the last couple of Season's !

Bully, do you think he needs somebody to play closer off him.....He works his guts off, plus he's always looking for the simple pass (instead of holding the ball up and waiting for some support?).

He probably does, but not sure we've worked out how to play at home with 2 up front yet!! LOL

But could any Hammer complain if we'd been offered this situation before the season started? NOOOO!!!!

I expect Slav to continue to make us better.

we could have had 3 or 4, thought it was a good game, stupid goal to give them, but after 20 mins we took over.

Fair play to Norwich they have put a good shift in just like Leicester and Bournemouth did .. Our dismal Home form continues sadly by the looks of it !

At Carroll the Expensive Camel he is Useless "imo"

Sorry Steve don't agree with that.
Carroll needs a few matches under his belt to get his fitness back.
Our equalizer...Did you notice how the Norwich defenders (and Ruddy himself) basically shit themselves with just Carroll's presence...He needs game time, honest!

Is first touch is useless "imo" but lets agree to disagree on the Carroll scenario .. Albeit lets hope he can actually manage to stay fit and get a few games under his belt .. Then hopefully along with Jarvis we can Offload the pair in January ! .. Roll on when Valencia is fit again to add even more Pace and Flair up Front !

Yep fair enough Steve, I dunno I still think the big man has a lot to offer (talking about his first touch, I'm still dining out on his goal vs Swansea City last year (I live literally 5 minutes from the Liberty Stadium and my company built it (!), one or two of my mates are season ticket holders down this way so I'll milk it!), but when fit there's nobody better at putting rival back four's on their toes...He frightens defenders without a doubt.
As for Valencia, I keep forgetting about him (we've signed so many decent players, I'm not used to it to be honest)- Pace is vital of course and Valencia is a jewel...

Carroll may need games to get him fit but I was there today and he was an embarrassing mess! Should never have come on! Jelivic would offer more. If it's game time he needs then get him a few games behind closed doors. ATM he shouldn't be within a million miles of the first team!

In all three matches against Leicester,Bournemouth and Norwich today the opposition start the game with a fast tempo and dominate midfield .Bilic needs to adopt Allardyces' tactic of stifling the midfield ,with a 5 man midfield.That 4-2-3-1 formation just doesn't work especially with the likes of Lanzini ,Moses,and Payet in the same side ,the team is just getting overrun,we look great going forward but the opposition are scoring far more frequently. I think Noble,Obiang,Kouyate and Song with Payet floating behind Sakho.It may limit our attacking play but it will cut down on conceding so many goals,revert to a more attacking line up when the opposition start to tire in second half.But it is that first half hour in particular Bilic needs to address and reinforce the midfield with defensively minded midfield players to take the pace out of the game.

Any idea when he will be fit and playing again ?

Essex, there's always a big hole in central midfield that allows the opposition to dictate the play (we really do look like the away side at times)...A fit Song would be a godsend for me.

For me the first I've been able to see this season. Glad we didn't lose! We had lots of chances to win it and this team and manager really do look different from previous seasons. Payet is the real deal. Still a ways to go, but apart from that terrible pass from Noble it wasn't too bad.
