West Ham Post Match Thread

You can quibble with the choice of penalty taker if you wish. But to say BR didn't designate a penalty taker before the match is an insult to one of the most thorough and prepared managers in world football.

Now you are being silly. Yes he's good but he's also been shown up in recent games. But it's a matter of opinion.

You seriously think BR went into the game not knowing which of his team would take the penalty? Now you are being silly.

So we never doubted Rodgers' decision right...? lol

 

I did say we would win :ph34r:

 

Puts us in a very good position for Newcastle on Wednesday now. Back to full strength but some players today really did well despite not playing regularly. Justin especially was very good. Albrighton seemed decent and back to normal performance levels. 

 

It was a very poor West Ham side and you can only beat what's in front of you. We'd have been moaning long in to the night if we'd lost so gotta give them credit for getting the result. Rodgers plan worked! Trust in Brendan!

Does anyone have a chicken or goat that we can sacrifice to the god that is BR. Our reserve side was a lot better than any of us anticipated. Superb result.

Sorry, but no chicken or goat,  you can take my wife instead if you want, pretty sure she wont mind too much.

People moaning about Gray taking the penalty and it shouldn’t have been him . I didn’t see anyone else stepping up or taking responsibility.  If it wasn’t supposed to be him than surely Wes as captain would have stopped him .

Yes i do .He'e not good enough to take penalties consistently. But what do I know, I only spent a whole lifetime in the game as a professional.

 

As I said thankfully we got away with it today.

We'll have to agree to disagree. And you being an ex-pro is irrelevant.

I think him taking a penalty today was a one off unless it’s a shoot out, he’s not going to be consistently taking pens.

Thought Fuchs would have been the best option 

Yes - physically he struggles, but mentally he is solid as a rock. I can't imagine him missing a penalty - and I doubt he can either.

After that abomination he should be number 11 in a shootout

You didn’t see the Man City / Liverpool games then?

You should read carefully or play Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappe, Lewandowski for Man City /Liverpool...

Meanwhile, Pellegrini gets a swift boot to the sitter! On the evidence of today’s performance can’t really be surprising.

In my opinion we played better by quite a distance than West Ham, however I still feel we only really just got away with it. Good result though and some decent performances. So BR made the right call. 

An apt summary. Felt like our first half left something to be desired, even as we outplayed them.

Fair play to West Ham for not going with the stock corner flag image to accompany news of a sacking but instead going for a Championship Manager-style "news happening between matches" background.
