Just a pity there's 90 minutes to a match. Moyes bringing on two subs with five minutes left was a disgrace.
Agree, should of done it straight after their 2nd goal we needed fresh legs.

His Subs and stupid defending cost us today.
That's what separates good managers from the rest mate. Moyes was like that time and time again at Everton. Their fans liked him and knew he wasn't given the money to help him, and that somehow lessened their anger towards him when he couldn't turn things round in a match. But towards his end there, the fans were glad for him to go. I don't think he's a bad manager, but he hasn't changed since his Everton days. Very very cautious is his way, but in a relegation scrap you need Three points at home. Given our situation and the board we have, he's probably the best we could get. Whether that's good enough remains to be seen. Personally, I doubt it.

Bournemouth aren’t shit at the moment

They’ve won two out of the last three

We are fucked
They've beaten 2 of the other shit teams. Before that they were winless in six. Before that they only won 1 in 6. So 3 wins in 14 league games.

If you want to think we're fucked, go ahead. I think we have a 50/50 chance.
We’ve just lost a two goal lead against a shit side that Bournemouth hammered

Beating the shit sides around you like Bournemouth have done are the games you really have to win

But go ahead and make your usual nonsensical claim that we’ll win at Man City or Liverpool

Technically I suppose it is 50/50 as there’s only two outcomes but 19 points dropped from winning positions shows we are highly unlikely to get enough points to stay up, especially when we actually assist the opposition with brain dead defending

The problem you have is that the likes of Whisky, BB and myself appear to have other interests and football isn't the be all and end all. But for many it is and the owners rely on this. So it would take a huge sacrifice to alter that. But it's the only thing that they'll respond to.
We all get to know a great many people when we go to football regularly and I can honestly say I don't think I've ever met anyone for whom the football was their only interest in life. Obviously those of us with kids and grandkids will always put them at the top of their priorities (Yes, Mrs W, even ahead of you my little lotus blossom) but I'd actuallt feel sorry for anyone, not just West Ham supporters, whose only source of enjoyment was following the fortunes of a football club.

I used to enjoy going, and I still love watching the game, much to Mrs Ws disgust when I adjourn to the TV room while she's watching some fat woman bake a cake or some minor celebrity poncing about eating insects in the undergrowth. I thought I'd miss it when I stopped going but you know what ? I don't.

How?

We would have had to score 4 goals for ourselves for that to happen.

I honestly think it's this fucking stadium as much as anything else.

Cunts.
I think it plays a big part.

At UP,the fans were on top of you.It was a lot more intimidating for the opposition and even for our players too. If they weren't putting in a shift,the fans would let them know about it.It`s different here.Players can hide and get away with it.

Very disappointed in Moyes claim that ‘he’s a winner and that what he does’. 3-1 up at home in a must win game. The man couldn’t win a fight with himself

When he took the job Moyes stated that "he had better players this time around", he obviously had not watched us this season then? :shock: :oops:
