Albion are wank, but West Ham are so fucking laboured. Two ugly, ugly teams.

Benrhama dies look useful though, shame we weren’t prepared to pay over the odds

I think he looks completely out of his depth. All pretty turns and step overs but no end product.

Presumably "creating the winning goal against us" notwithstanding?

I was waiting for that one. I think its his only goal involvement all season.

He's not really played all that much. They've used Bowen and Fornals a lot more.

However that in itself probably counts as evidence to support your point.

Good goal from the Stripey Filth.

Another classic on the inconsistency of VAR again on the Bitters equaliser. I actually think it was the right decision to give the goal on this occasion, but I can’t see how Gallagher was not called as interfering with the keepers line of sight when he is standing 2 yards offside and a a foot from where the shot went. when McGinn had a goal ruled out at Arsenal despite being much closer in for his shot and the keeper having no chance of getting to it regardless.

2-1 West Ham. Albion have been okay by their piss poor standards but West Ham have been better.

I think it's fairly obvious that there has been a volte face from those in charge of VAR where, after being accused of actively seeking to rule goals out, they are being much more liberal and unless it is clear and obvious, they allow the goal.

Scant consolation for the like if us and McGinn but VAR doesn't, and won't ever work in the way it was sold so it's to be expected.

Fair play to Moyes. He’s done a really nice job at West Ham

Newport’s goalkeeper scored against Cheltenham from a goal kick! One bounce and in!

Currently 1-1.

A good long time ago, my friend told me he once won the Dutch league with Ajax on Championship Manager with terrible players, just because the game engine overcompensated for the reputation of the club.

This is what Lampard is trying to do. Abraham, Hudson-Odoi, Kovacevic, Rudiger, the ossified remains of Thiago Silva, and the keeper Mendy, are nowhere near good enough to challenge for the title, and barely good enough to finish in the top 6.

1-0 Leicester.

Chelsea look abysmal, hope Frank doesn't get sacked.
