Quite surprised at this OV. If there's one thing I think the club have done quite well on is stadium branding, it doesn't feel like home but it is very West Ham and claret/blue oriantated.

I was clear and specific about the fact that I was talking about the performance against Stoke today. I have not once claimed that Bilic and the team are at issue for the issues in relation t the migration. That would be silly. But Bilic does pick the team, and the players are the ones who are charged with showing ingenuity, guile, craft, and slickness to beat a team like Stoke who are minus their worldy's. Today, the formation was wrong, the Goalkeeper gaffed, the star players failed to shine, and our Captain slowed the game down, and ran down blind avenues. That has NOTHING to do with the owners. And issues like kettling after the game, the ballot, and the security are making no difference to a game like today. That is just illogical, and nonsensical, and utilising a confirmation bias to avoid blaming Bilic, or Noble, or suggesting that the likes of Payet are off the boil. There are major issues with the migration, but to blame the migration fand the owners for today's poor performance, and result is myopic in the extreme. Did Brady suggest to Adrian to play the man and not the ball after coming off the line? Did Brady, Gold and Sullivan demand that Zaza be brought to the club? Do they demand that Bilic play the strange 3-4-3 formation which has reached the end of the line? Do they demand that Noble choose to play conservatively?

Last season was unique in terms of the PL. It gave opportunities to Clubs that won't be on offer this year. Different times. But what is similar is that we did go for two months without winning last November.


100% Agree

Well they are the self appointed guvners of a cocked up transfer policy, so I would say quite rightly that the buck stops with them. Zaza was a desperation signing (yet another one) after our gobby vice-chairman continually cocked up better deals, squabling over a pound note here and there..
