An absolutely abysmal performance (possibly the worst I’ve ever witnessed by a West Ham team, and I’ve seen quite a few shockers over the past 50 years or so) at the Dildodrome yesterday, with a classic West Ham collapse after the first Arse goal. Still at least I was there to witness history – our biggest home defeat in 61 years!
Given Arsenal’s well-known skill at set pieces, and their discipline, everyone thought that Moyesiah’s team selection and setup was risky. We did quite well for the first 20 minutes, then it started raining goals. Were it not for Areola’s heroics it would have probably been 8-nil.
Well, if you accept everything footy commentators say… 20,000 is almost a third of the stadium. No way did a third of the crowd leave at half time; a third may have gone to the bar mind you – who wouldn’t need a drink after that first half?
The Moyesiah actually tried to play football against us instead of sitting back and got severely punished, without Paqueta you lack any creativity and resorting to lumping balls up to Bowen against Saliba and Gabriel was never going to happen.
I don’t think you where terrible and for those first twenty minutes you had a go but our defence is the best in the league and limited you to just one shot on target and unfortunately for you you came up against a fully firing Arsenal.
You’re right and I wish him the best too. Clearly all the problems with Palace and the search for a new manager will have taken its toll on him. Looks like Oliver Glasner is going to be our new manager. I would very much like to see Roy leave with his dignity intact and our heartfelt thanks so perhaps he could step down on medical grounds or Steve Parish could offer him a senior role ‘upstairs’
Well, tonight is the least proud I’ve felt about NUFC in the last 3 years. Poor. Lucky to get a point. Eddie still picking his favourite, Dan Burn. When you look at Forest, Luton and Bournemouth, I’m just sick of these average teams taking the piss out of us
