Hammers fans fume after diasterous result

West Ham fans discuss all things Hammers on our twitter site:

This week they discuss the defeat to Aston Villa and their chances of survival.

Still at a loss to see how a team with that many quality players is in a relegation battle?


Remembering 02/03, is it nearly time to bring in Sir Trevor?

The second half was a disgrace. We are devoid of ideas, quality and passion. Its over now with Chelsea and City away after three straight defeats. Under Zola even though the squad was weaker there was more fight and spirit, it seems there’s a resignation about things now.

Kwame Boakye

Improve or not, we need at least 9 points to get out of this mess.

Nick Homer

There has not been a spark of creativity in that team Sat or for many games in the last 3 years

Dave Enright

“We have had no creativity since Yossi left us, never replaced him, and we have no decent wingers!

Lewis Erentrauts

The whole club top to bottom need to take a good hard look at themselves whoever isn’t doing the business get rid of them. could barely pass a ball properly yesterday. Sunday league teams look better.

Chris McGrath

Both goals were headers. We missed James Tomkins and Manuel da Costa erasing crosses against Villa.

Brian Parker

Our season is over. Every one around us is picking up points and we have fallen away. We need at least 10 points from the last five games.

David Segal

We are gone, next two games are a write off, can we beat Blackburn and Sunderland? Doubt it. So frustrating

Matt Tarrant

Nobody should be surprised by today’s result. Under Grant we have been consistently awful.


Terrible performance. We have so many problems and too few characters to run through them. We are doomed.
