Our West Ham United correspondent Dave Evans shared his thoughts on the Hammers 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

As a group we spoke about the impact of VAR so far this season and what we feel is wrong about it as well as what the West Ham players could potentially be up on the International break.

Leyton Orient wise we spoke about their 1-0 victory over Northampton Town to end the seven game winless run and the impact of striker Matt Harrold as well the magnificent reception during the Justin Edinburgh tribute.

Not forgetting the 3-0 defeat to AFC Wimbledon in mid-week in the EFL Trophy and the return of winger James Dayton.

Dan Bennett shared his thoughts on who they may need to bring in up front to stop the goals drying up for the Daggers and the away trip to Stockport County this weekend.

Jacob Ranson also rounded up the latest in non-league along with all this weekend's local fixtures ahead of Non League Day where you should expect to watch some cut-price matches.
