It's suicide to play almost the same eleven this period. We've got Pedro, Willian, Batschuay... come on, Antonio, that's good depth. Morata is tired, Zapacosta is dumb, Alonso is still slow and tired, Cesc is tired, Eden is tired. This one is on coach. 

Best description of Zappa I've seen

Seeing that we struggle to go forward in a fast coherent manner, would it make sense to bring on Pedro for Baka?

In general, this season practically every game demonstrates our mind boggling  failings on the transfer market in the summer.

Awful first half of football from us. As usual, we started slow and this time we were punished for it. We got a bit better but you can't start slow and like that and then just expect things to click. For years there has been an attitude at this club with starting slow, it just seem's to be something that never changes no matter who is in charge. West Ham are looking comfortable right now because we let it happen with our poor start. 

We basically wasted a half of football, we will have to put in a top performance to get anything out of this now. It's not like last week for West Ham, we haven't exactly forced West Ham into using a lot of energy like City did.

Horrible start, after which West Ham allowed us to have the majority of possession and hoped to hit us on the counter. They looks well organised and have executed Moyes's game plan well. We haven't looked very threatening going forward so have nothing to lose by throwing on one or two attacking players. We need to turn that possession into real chances.

That was ridiculous, don't think that bunch could even play like that against our under 21s. We turned up 15 minutes late to the game just like last weekend, but not doing anywhere near enough to turn it around. We looked so tired, not closing down and not chasing the ball, the goal we conceded was a prime example. I'm expecting a blast from Conte right now, and I have the feeling he may throw on a Willian on Pedro after HT, we needed someone to lift the team. That pitch was illegally narrow, it will take something to break them down. We will probably revert to a 4231 late in the game, think they will just defend their box and occasionally run around us by the sideline.

Come on, I was expecting 3:0 by now, not going down 0:1 and looked like the game was a day earlier than expected.

What is it with us and these london derbies. We seem to not turn up. We should know these london clubs are gonna turn up vs us especially at home. Zappacosta and alonso are poor, we need serious upgrades of wing backs asap.

Alonso keeps passing back when he goes forward or doesn't have pace to grt past his man, and zappa is out of position on many occasions like a headless chicken.

Yeah its really classy and doesn't at all make us look like spoiled idiots.

How would you describe the way he always stays behind the ball - no matter which team had the last touch? Cuz this is exactly where he ends - in the middle of nowhere. Stupidity.

I just don't think Conte understands the importance of London derbies!

Lack of positional awareness?
