So that went well! An awful performance on Wednesday night means West Ham have lost any momentum they may have gained after the battling performance against Leicester. Individual errors are costing them dear, a failure to do the basics correctly left West Ham exposed and on the end of a 4-0 beating.

Idle Thoughts on the Managerial Merry-Go-Round

In reporting the sacking of Slaven Bilic, the ‘East London & West Essex Guardian’ noted that David Moyes was likely ‘to become just the Hammers’ 16th boss in 117 years’. The 15 previous managers have enjoyed an average of a little under 8 years in charge at West Ham, but, whilst mathematically correct, that figure does not give an accurate picture of the reality. Did any of those fifteen managers actually have anything in the region of eight years at the Hammers’…
