Teams literally walk the ball up the pitch against us, totally unopposed. We defend the edge of our box and that's it. The other two thirds of the pitch, we allow teams to pretty much do whatever they want.

It's fucking tragic.
Yeah, pretty much.

West Ham didn't do anything remarkable on Saturday. They played like they do most times I've seen them this season. And they should have won.

They definitely played above their normal level, like they always do when they face us. Goes back a long way. As teams like Wba, Everton, Southampton etc do. Iím fully aware we are crap, but we can be crap as well as teams finding an extra gear or two. Even if our level is now 5th, it is still above their level as can be seen by their other results and position. Sparkles just finding reasons to be cheerful as usual. Hope we get thrashed tonight so he can tell us all we are crap. Again.

So you don't think West Ham have improved under Pellegrini? They're playing attractive football, no one is saying they have a better squad than us, but they are currently playing better football than us. Partly because they've had time under their new manager to gel together. Unfortunately we are a stunted mess atm.

Lots of no-mark sides traditionally raise their game against us, and yes it is infuriating when it happens. But in recent weeks, they really haven't needed to
