    Haller is so lightweight... that's the third time in as many minutes he's been bundled off the ball...

    he wins fouls... but this time he's sitting down holding his ankle...

    seems like we've found the perfect player to continue the Morley tradition... except Trev wasn't half bad... Haller is just terrible - and probably cost more than the entire team that Trevor Morley played in.

    Twitter gets it...

    "I’ve tried backing haller but he can’t seem to do the basics, he falls over when he tries to hold it up, can’t even pass and move, I don’t think I’ve seen him put his heart into winning the ball once this season #WHUWBA"



    the half time whistle goes after 1 minute of added time...

    West Ham get booed off.

    I guess you could say we've improved as a side... let's face it... we had 1 shot in the first half... earlier in the season that number would have been zero...

    good thing about Twitter is we can even get a view from inside the ground:

    "DJ at half time playing I Predict a Riot....🤔 #WHUWBA"

    good god, that 'hammerhead' mascot is really poor... but not as poor as the ... what is it???? a fridge? a block of 'white cheese' as my viewing companion wonders out lous...

    unsurprisingly... Antonio comes on for the 2nd half...

    oh christ... so does noble...

    fupp me... we're making three subs to start the half...


    noble on for Sanchez

    Ogbonna on for Balbuena

    Antonio on for Fornals...


    so once again... we take off our 'best' player (Fornals) and leave on shite like Lanzini and Haller...

    but three subs to start the half... how desperate is that????

    "West Ham (so far) handing West Brom this #FACup match on a silver platter would be much more acceptable if they didn’t have so many first teamers out there on the pitch. Here’s hoping for a lot more effort in the 2nd half.
    #WHUWBA #COYI"

    "Really worried after first half. Apart from Rice, Cresswell and Adjeti, no commitment or positivity whatsoever. Complete lack of dynamism and quality. And as for Haller....£40m?!?! #WHUWBA'

    "It's almost as if the players were asked to go out there and make football look as dull and boring as possible. At the moment, we are looking like a team from outer space who are trying to play a football match for the first time.

    this is the view on the first half form the paid journal at the Evening Standard:

    "Pretty uninspiring stuff from West Ham so far. Improvement needed."

    everyone's a critic...

    distinct lack of updates form the world... even Twitter has gone quiet...

    it's almost all West Brom at the moment...

    nice bit of claret spilled... Antonio jumped for a ball, his arm hits a Baggies player in the mouth, splits his lip open... no malice involved at all... but it's a nasty looking injury...

    Ajeti gets on a ball from Lanzini but his header is just wide of the post...

    65 minutes gone... half of a half to dig ourselves out of the shite...

    Let's see if Twitter has woken up for the 2nd half...

    "Surely as a manager you really have to look at yourself if you make three technical substitutions at half time, at home against a team a league below? #WHUWBA #COYI #FACup #moyesout"

    "This is embarrassing. The players look like they have never met each other. Some of them look like they’ve never seen a football before. Should all be absolutely ashamed of themselves. #WHUWBA"

    "Reason we’re so so poor an boring to watch is the FACT that !.... the players and the managers we have had since 2010 have all have been affected by the fans who are the core of the club who have been LIED to!! BY THE OWNERS #GSBOUT! It won’t stop until they go
    @BBCMOTD
    #WHUWBA"

    "Haller is such a tragic finisher. Cant use no service as an exscuse hes just plain shocking #COYI #GSBOUT #WHUWBA"

    "Like 11 strangers playing, starting to think we look worse under Moyes 😂 #WHUWBA"

    "HALLER CAN'T TOUCH, PASS OR SHOOT and hasn't been able to ever. It's embarrassing. All he can do is head the ball. #WHUWBA #COYI "

    ooh... bit of excitement... the Baggies get a player sent off... very harsh decision... Ajeti was running on goal... three defenders went for him, one of them got the ball andAjeti then fell over... so the Ref books the player who touched the ball first - but he'd already been booked in the first half, so off he goes.

    we do nothing with the resulting Lanzini free kick...

    18 minutes to try to beat ten men from the championship...

    is THAT too much to ask?

    and some more from Twitter... there's more highlights here than in the actual game:

    "Our Championship opponents are down to 10-men. Now might be our best chance to scrape a draw and delay the inevitable embarassment until the replay! #WHUWBA"

    "West Brom have had double the shots. We have none on target!! fupping disgrace another cup compition done can’t buy a fupping win in league we going down and our club is destroyed
    @WestHam #WHUWBA"

    can't disagree with anything people on twitter are saying...

    we are at home...

    we are playing pretty much our strongest team...

    the opposition are a league below us... (although in reality only 5 places)

    the opposition are down to ten men...

    I just watched Noble and Rice team up to play the ball out wide too Zabaleta... and the ball just goes out of play...

    less than ten minutes to go...

    now Rice tries to cross the ball into the box and his mis hit cross just loops high into the air and sails out of play over the goal...


    Sir Trev is sitting there playing with his phone... maybe he's the one sending all these tweets...

    It's that point in the game where I don't actually want us to score... honestly... life long supporter and I don't want us to get back into this game... we do no deserve it at all... it would be an absolute travesty if e get anything out of this game.

    we are just so completely useless in every department... anything but a sad, embarrassing loss at home in front f thousands of paying fans would make a joke of everything that is good about football.

    the Evening Standard is trying to make it sound interesting...

    86 mins | Lanzini now tries his luck from range, firing through a crowd of players and wide. West Ham are running out of time.
    1 minute ago
    85 mins | West Ham cling in another cross but Diop - playing as a centre forward now - can't get a clear connection.

    tjis is probably the tweet of the day...

    "Whether it’s gigs or football I hate leaving things early, I’ve paid my coin and want to make the most of it but that was an absolutely depressing afternoon at #WHUWBA. We’re shit and going down. Only decent performance was Hammerhead the mascot beating their boiler at half time"
