    was working n a different timezone and so missed the game - which seems like a blessing on my part...

    Here's a little taste:

    It is difficult to know which statistic should cause the most embarrassment for West Ham. Perhaps the one about this being the 15th time they have shipped at least three goals in this season’s Premier League will be your favourite. But we also need to remember they have the leakiest defence in the top flight, with 67 conceded in 35 games, and that their fourth 4-1 defeat in 2018 means they have let in three goals or more in 13 home fixtures since moving to the London Stadium two years ago.

    or this...

    The reason Moyes has mostly favoured a 3-4-2-1 system is because he does not trust his team to defend well enough in a 4-4-2 system. The Scot, who replaced Slaven Bilic in November, is not wrong. West Ham have vulnerable full-backs, a shortage of centre-backs, ponderous central midfielders, no fit wide players and strikers who do not work hard enough off the ball. They have mostly lined up without a traditional centre-forward under Moyes, with Marko Arnautovic often shouldering the goalscoring burden in an unfamiliar lone role up front.

    or there's this from the BBC:

    David Moyes' side did not help themselves with an error-strewn defensive display, epitomised by City's second goal, which bordered on slapstick.

    Adrian rushed off his line but failed to win the ball, Angelo Ogbonna botched a headed clearance and then Declan Rice and Zabaleta contrived to put the ball into their own net.

    West Ham had nine players in the penalty area yet still conceded.

    Moyes, arms folded with a furrowed brow, cut a nervous figure on the touchline, aware of their position in the table.

    It what a lot of us have been saying for a couple of years in that the owners have not supplied the resources to complete in the PL.

    We have to now rely on luck to stay up because we do not have the playing staff to gain the extra points we need.

    What a sorry state we are.

    The only good thing about West Ham are our supporters, everything else is a first class mess.

    Jiggs,

    If we go down then no.

    If we stay up then 50/50 chance.

    We've been debating. Abbi is a definite no, which makes me think I should follow suit. The others are saying what else would we do on a Saturday/any other time sky decides. I'm thinking what else I could do with the money whilst fearing if I give it up I won't get it back.  Not exactly the best reasons to renew are they  cheesey grin

    Jiggs,
    See how you feel after today's game.
    It's just a pity we can't make up our minds till after the transfer window shuts.
