Waking up this morning, it didn’t take long for the realisation to hit home, even after a night on the ale, that our beloved West Ham United will be propping up the Premier League table, courtesy of the forthcoming international break, for at least the next two weeks.

Four games, four defeats is the start to a campaign that nightmares are made of.

Whether we can get out of this mess, quickly, remains to be seen.

However, you have to be an eternal optimist in this game otherwise you’d just wallow in self-pity.

Games against Everton (a) and Chelsea (h) are on the horizon and we have to believe we can get some points from them, however unlikely it might seem at the moment.

Yesterday, the side gave a stuttering performance which makes my plea for you to ‘Rate the Players’ an interesting one.

Here at Vital West Ham, we’d be interested, after the doom and gloom of the defeat at the hands of Wolves, to see who you thought were the best players, in claret and blue, on show.

Please take time out to cast your votes it takes just seconds but provides us with so much information.



One Reply to “Your Chance To Judge Those Performances – Wolves (h)”

  • Cresswell and Fredericks were left very exposed against a vg wolves side (same team all 4 matches so far) and after being given the run around. Were then cleverly (by the wolves manager) asked to face fresh subs, including the lightening fast Traore (a player we were linked with a lot). To be honest I feel sorry for them.
    Shearer showed up the real problem on MOTD and football is a team game…some of our players seem to have forgotten that and yet keep being picked, only to under perform again.
    This is down to the manager (he picks the team, formation, style and takes training to prepare them). He also stated he watched all our matches from last season and so is fully aware how Moyes sorted a similar problem and got us picking up points regularly (not always pretty I admit, but it worked).
    My problem with Pellegrini (so far he reminds me of Zola, lovely bloke, wants to entertain, but keeps making the same mistakes to the end) is that he is stubborn. At Villarreal he had Riquelme a fans favourite, conductor of the team and lynchpin of the side. However they fell out one day at training and he refused to play him again. The team faltered, they had no similar player, he ignored the fans chanting Riquelme’s name regularly for the rest of the season and attempt’s by players to sort the problem out.
    Bournemouth signed a few new players and they have not all been chucked in at once, they are being brought in slowly. While keeping the same core and formation as last year.
    We have done exactly what Everton did last season and it took Sam to sort that mess out. He needs to swallow his pride and switch to Moyes formation, so we can start picking up points. The board wont allow this to continue for long (end October ?) before Sam or Moyes ride back into town.
    Zero points and our goal difference are very alarming, even this early. Atleast Fabianski (our best signing) looks nailed on for hammer of the year, because without his performances god knows what our goal difference would be already.
    Sorry its not a good read, but I am rather cheesed off.
