Well, we have the stadium so what do the results on the pitch matter eh? 60,000 happy Hammers cheering to the rafters as we take to the field against Southend United - a vital local derby!
Tell me, shouldn't the priority be the team you send on to the pitch, not where the bloody pitch is located? Whilst Sullivan and Gold fiddle, the Boleyn legacy is burning to the ground! Whist the Olympic Dream is realised the Upton Park nightmare unfolds!
3-0 at half time at West Brom. Another relegation six pointer, another game where losing is not an option, another game where we haven't even turned up. A goal down inside 4 minutes and a goal conceded in a disgraceful fashion. Noble gave up when Odemwinge drifted past him. He challenged once, he challenged twice, then gave up, stopped dead in his tracks and let the Baggies man pick his pass. And Dorrans was completely unmarked, sitting in the hole between our back four and midfield. As usual, Parker was in front of the ball instead of where he should have been, behind it, screening our back four. As usual we had two banks of four, literally, with nothing and nobody in between them, nobody sitting, nobody screening, nobody tracking, nobody thinking. There has an attempt to block the shot, but it was half hearted, not like a Tomkins block or a Collins block, the two men who should be our centre back pairing. Dorrans took aim, shot, and it was game over. This team was never going to recover from that.
Goal two was always inevitable, with the midfield and defence operating at two completely separate and distinct units. West Brom were then denied a perfectly good penalty when Da Costa couldn't deal with a simple ball over the top and Reid pulled back a West Brom player deep inside the penalty box. The Baggies only had 10 players on the pitch at the time to compound the humiliation. The own goal for the third said it all, this team, this club, is intent on its own self destruction.
3-0 at half time against West Bromich Albion. But fcuk, who cares, we have a shiny new stadium with talk of retractable seating. You bloody fools! You stupid bloody, idiotic, gullible fools.
