Cresswell has got to come in for masuaku, he is useless and Antonio should never wear the shirt again.

How on earth did we not get a point tonight first half not enough work that's why, WH big possession total for away game , we have been brough back to Earth with a big bang very dissapointing, Masuaku must be dropped, he hasn't got a clue defensively and twice our centre backs caught out, it will come right but we are not going to leap up the league on this showing. IRONMIKE.

Thats now Wolves, Bournemouth and Brighton, I’m not looking forward to Huddersfield and Cardiff.

It was great to watch a west ham team dominating the possession in an away game, 67% and passing the ball around like they did. We now have to learn how to break down 9 man defences, we missed 12 chances, 2 wasted free kicks from just outside penalty area and we did not have enough creativity in last third.

I agree Ironmike, Masuaku doesn't have the natural defensive instincts that A good defender has, I would love Cresswell to be given a run of games. The rest of the team must learn and get better. This is not the first time Yarmolenko has made critical mistake that has led to a goal and he needs to learn and change,

06 Oct 2018 13:00:11
Most have now noticed that Yarmolenko cannot get 90 minutes, his continued subbing is not a choice it’s a must. IRONMIKE.

06 Oct 2018 18:14:50
Somebody who can put the ball in the back of the net with a free kick around the box would be nice. Two free kicks we had in very dangerous positions last night wasted by Anderson and Arnie. At least make the keeper work for God's sake.

A fit Lanzini would have been ideal vs Brighton. Whether bringing him on for Yarmo instead of Antonio, or starting him from the off. JW may also have been able to make more of an impact. As for Antonio, IMO he should only be played down the middle, not technically good enough for MP's style of play to be able to play anywhere else. And i would still have Chica ahead of him as a CF.

Brighton is NOT an easy place to go, and we did a FAR load better than we did when there last year. Despite the result, we showed a marked improvement. We also had 2 clear chances we should have taken, Balbuena and Arnie taking those chances and we would all be writing how it was a good away performance. Our home games vs these teams is what will shape our season.
Cresswell in for Masuaku is the change i'd make for Spurs.

When are we going to be able to beat the lesser teams, our decision making at times was poor, Antonio has had it, sloppy in midfield for the goal.

Stevie, we are one of the lesser teams as well and always have been for a long, long time👎 Some of us are deluded into thinking we should beat so called lesser teams, why shouldn’t they beat us, we are one of them!, I have said in previous posts when due to play the teams you have mentioned, Wolves, Bournemouth, Brighton, all consistently better than us, Wolves only just emerged into the Premiership, but from highlights I have seen far better than us, Bournemouth neve give up, again far better displays than ours, Brighton, we’ll i said would be happy with a point, that’s why I said it, I knew they could turn us over! At least the other 2 mentioned hopefully we can at least get a point apiece, but we lack fight and aggression so much at times, it’s those qualities that other teams have. This rubbish possession football we are playing bloody angers me, oh it looks pretty until as usual the stupid hospital ball is passed 2 yards away and lost inside our own half, long passes get into the opposing half, may aound like Sam’s game but that’s my football, you ain’t going to score in your own half or on the halfway line! 👎👎👎.

06 Oct 2018 09:33:13
Chelmsford, what I mean by lesser teams is that we can get results from Man utd and Chelsea but we can't from a lesser team than those, but I would say that Brighton and Bournemouth are a smaller club than ours when you consider they haven't been around the prem as long as us and their stadiums can't hold 66k, but you can guarantee that if a team hasn't kept a clean sheet for god knows how long or a player hasn't scored for so many games then West Ham will oblige, it's the west ham way.

06 Oct 2018 12:52:16
Stevie, I totally agree with you, my post re lesser teams is directed at WH not yourself, it makes your blood boil that these clubs with what seems less financial clout than us because of far smaller Stadium gate income, seem to recruit and train players at times with far more seemingly energy and enthusiasm than we get from ours, is their something inherent among the complete running of the club that gives it the feeling that players are to comfortable on their contracts? I think David Moyes had the right attitude to a lot of malingerers and those that lacked the roll up your sleeves attitude of earn your money or f—- off! Players are pampered to much because of the money that in some cases have been foolishly invested in them, but of course unless you know them well, you don’t know who the p—- takers are always going to be? If I had untold £millions to blow no money of mine would go into a club to pay for footballers obscene financial rewards👎☹️.

06 Oct 2018 21:21:28
That’s what Steve meant Chelms is the attitude and intensity ain’t the same against the smaller teams and not that we should be a shoe in against those teams but the effort isn’t the same and I have to agree there mate but we all see what was going to happen so why can’t the management and players but to be fair MP did say before the game its ok getting points against UTD CHELSEA but don’t just expect to turn up and get a result . COYI.

Early days but it seems to me we have to play top teams to have the same intensity their goal Yarmalenko not strong enough noble should have cut the cross out and MASUAKU is marking fresh air.

Can’t believe he’s taken Obiang off nobles been shocking.

05 Oct 2018 22:47:30
The result didn’t surprise me at all, I knew they could do a job on us and proved it tonight, that’s why I would have taken a draw before the game, good workmanlike side Brighton, very underrated, knew they would be better than Everiton and ManU, we could have played another half an hour and not scored, why do we try to play this stupid possession football, square and back passes without moving forward! Could see no plus points for any player tonight, Yarmolenko rubbish, put in some work if you can’t score goals, Anderson bloody lightweight, at least try to make a tackle! Three subs were rubbish👎👎👎👎.

our build up play is so slow and predictable it’s embarrassing don’t care who disagrees but my mother in law can see masuaku ain't a left back he’s not got a defenders awareness of who’s around him and if to stay in his position or gamble i know we’ve been on a good run and i should be glad but i’d play him in midfield for his skill and pace i know he’s played wide left but i’d play him in midfield instead of l/ b i don’t rate cresswell but i'd rather him than masuaku we were very poor in that half and one good thing we can’t play that badly again it looks like we expected to just turn up and beat them even arnautovic was poor in the first half. coyi.

05 Oct 2018 21:55:13
Back to normal. What a difference from. ghe intensity we showed previously. Shocking night terrible performance.

05 Oct 2018 21:57:26
Agree Who R ya it too many times Anderson didn't get past the defender and didn't seem to know hat to do with it

The only real difference was they took their chance neither GK had a shot to save.

05 Oct 2018 21:58:27
Pellegrini got it wrong taking OBIANG off instead of NOBLE who will ALWAYSVlook good when we win but please people please watch the game back and watch him closely he CANNOT get anywhere near an opposing midfield player when they are attacking I’m sorry but I’d put him and ANTONIO who is not the same player in fact he’s miles off and I’d cash in on him now and another thing YARMALENKO is the slowest player I’ve ever seen over5 yards he’s like in QUICKSAND and wasn’t good tonight in fact never was ARNAUTOVIC rice was solid again but that was it basically thought we only needed to turn up to get the 3 points and they fully deserved their win because they was at it especially in the first half.

05 Oct 2018 22:48:19
I thought Anderson was our best player.

It makes me laugh how the tabloids are reporting Andy Carroll is making good progress from his injury and may be back sooner than expected, and they report it like its supposed to be good news to us hammers fans! Who cares? He has had more than his fair share of chances and enough money out of our club. I say don't risk playing him because he will get another injury. get him fit and sell him and use the money wisely to strengthen.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Oct 2018 13:56:03
Totally agree. although I hear just the breeze of the wind hurts him. Wrap him up in bubble wrap he might make it through xmas.

04 Oct 2018 16:04:11
Unplayble when fit, but that is SO rare, and how does he fit MP's style. Maybe MP can fit him in somewhere, but if there is any doubt in that then IMO we should keep him fit and loan him to Newcastle, Burnley or Cardiff in Jan, they are desperate for someone to score goals and it covers SOME of his wages before he leaves. Barring a physical miracle, and MP fitting him in somewhere, he will be gone at end of season.
Cannot see him being bought in Jan as he will want his wages matched while he has a contract. Once he is out of contract he will have to take what he can get. Shame, i like Andy and appreciate what he can do, but his injuries present too much of a risk.
