West Ham 0-3 Manchester City (agg 0-9) | League Cup semi-final 2nd leg

Sam Allardyce had mused after West Ham United’s Capital One Cup quarter-final win at Tottenham Hotspur, in the knowledge that it would be Manchester City next, that the competition’s format had a flaw. “It is a shame,” the West Ham manager said, “that the semi-final cannot be over one leg.” He suggested that West Ham might have a chance if that one-off tie were at Upton Park. The events here did little to strengthen the hypothesis. Yes, this semi-final was already…

West Ham’s Allardyce ambivalent about Chelsea trip as he looks to February

• Hammers manager targets 22 points from 16 league matches • Newcastle United still eager to sign Loïc Rémy from QPR If West Ham are looking for silver linings, there is always Tuesday’s Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City to get excited about.

West Ham United 1-3 Newcastle United | Premier League match report

Someone should tell West Ham that they are in a relegation battle. This defeat plunged them back into the bottom three and although they could point to comical misses from Carlton Cole and Andy Carroll, they will surely go down if they continue to be as staggeringly negligent as they were in the first half of this match. After the relief of last Saturday’s victory over Cardiff City, the pressure is back on Sam Allardyce. Newcastle…

The midfielder can see the funny side of that cup debacle but is fully committed to keeping West Ham in the Premier League Mark Noble is laughing, even though the conversation has turned to West Ham United’s traumatic experience against Manchester City in their Capital One Cup semi-final.

The managers have the two clubs in common and both are in need of a Premier League victory Sam Allardyce was in full flow, talking tactics as he addressed Newcastle United’s squad. Noting that the manager’s pre-match briefing concentrated primarily on stopping the opposition, one player interjected. “But what do you want us to do when we have the ball?” he asked. Shortly afterwards Allardyce’s torrid, improvisation light, eight-month Tyneside tenure ended. Accelerated by an…

Manchester City 6-0 West Ham United | Capital One Cup semi-final first leg match report

The only surprise, perhaps, was that Manchester City restricted themselves to six. The tie was so one-sided, the level of opposition so utterly abject, that there were moments when it was easy to imagine another seven-goal haul to emulate what happened against Norwich, never mind the six that Arsenal and Tottenham sieved inside this stadium. The fifth goal went in before the hour had even passed. After that, the goal machine that is Manuel…

Nottingham Forest 5-0 West Ham | FA Cup match report

Hat-trick hero Jamie Paterson and the captain Andy Reid expressed their delight at helping Nottingham Forest reach the fourth round of the FA Cup after demolishing West Ham. Sam Allardyce raised eyebrows by making nine changes to his West Ham side against tricky Championship opposition, and his decision backfired as the hosts ran riot. While Djamel Abdoun’s 12th-minute penalty and Reid’s strike at the death bookended the scoring, it was Paterson who stole the…

Fulham 2-1 West Ham United | Premier League match report

West Ham’s relegation worries deepened as they sunk to a deserved defeat at fellow strugglers Fulham after their captain, Kevin Nolan, was sent off in the first half for kicking out at Fernando Amorebieta. Sam Allardyce’s side had taken an early lead thanks to Mohamed Diamé but Steve Sidwell equalised for the hosts before Nolan’s inexcusable folly left the already weakened visitors at a numerical disadvantage. Fulham, who were superior even before the red card, dominated the rest of the game and secured victory with a goal from Dimitar Berbatov…
