Losing to Liverpool is not really a shock. But surrendering from the opening whistle as West Ham did is not impressive. Fat Sam Allardyce has apparently once again used the word “unlucky” in relation to this latest humiliation. What planet is he on?
Liverpool attempted 36 shots during the game. In a sense they were unlucky. It could have been 8-1.
The only bright spot is that Kevin Nolan was sent off and so misses our next three games. He is having a dire season. The way the other results panned out yesterday and our abject form and tough set of fixtures ahead leaves me with a fear that come New Year (or even sooner) West ham could be bottom of the league with Fat Sam set to take us back to where we were when he arrived….The Championship.
You can see how desperate the supporters have become when some of the ideas being floated around include the return of Judas (Paul Ince) as manager or Judas (Defoe) to lead the attack in the continuing absence of horseface.
For what it is worth I would be happy with both of those suggestions. In fact if it meant getting rid of Fat Sam (who I would have fired last summer) I would also re-hire Fat Frank Lampard just for good measure.
At what point does West Ham’s board say that “enough is enough?” Given that we are bound to lose to Arsenal and Man United in the next couple of games I almost find myself hoping that we lose both games 7 nil in order to force the hand of our esteemed owners.
