West Ham vs Chelsea - What the Papers Say

The Mirror and the News of the world both today report that West Ham's debts are now more than £100 million. Both papers quote David Gold saying,

"With the help of our bankers we will keep the club afloat, but it will take years to take West Ham where we want them to be."

The Sunday papers take a very bleak view of West Ham's hopes this season. The paper's match reports for the Chelsea game make for pretty bleak reading.

The Mail say that West Ham are a club who have given up hope of getting points off better teams and that they are "hoping they can find three who are even less able than themselves."

The NoW match report for yesterday's game says that David Sullivan is running short on excuses and that the only bright spot for West Ham was Kieron Dyer's introduction, "Dyer was inventive, the only highlight of another depressing day down Green Street."

The Mirror claim that West Ham only 'occasionally threatened' the Chelsea defence.

The Telegraph actually saw a few seeds of hope in West Ham's performance, "for West Ham there was improvement in defeat. They might now have conceded 12 goals in four games but there was fight in this performance and a first goal from open play."

i didnt think it was that bad!! ok we lost, and made 2 silly mistakes for the first two goals, but on the whole we played well. the only thing is although we looked good going forward, and had good play to get forward, we never looked like scoring. but this will change in time.
If we play like that next week against Stoke, i cannot see us loosing.

The Papers just love knocking us, but then we all knew they would anyway!!

Drop Green & Upshit. Lets send a message to these players that these kind of errors & performances are just not acceptable.

Lets be fair Upson cleared up after Greens error. On any other day it would have been a decent clearance & it was pure bad luck that it hit the CFC players heel.

I thought on the whole we played well against the best team in the league, but as already said, we created few clear chances. CFC are very well organised but against a team more of our level we would have won. Its not all doom and gloom.

These articles are written by some of teh dumbest ,stupidest ,most illiterate deluded "jouralists" in England. All these journalists did was show themselves up.

For large periods of the match West Ham outplayed Chelsea, and bar Green's error,Chelsea would have struggled to walk away with the points. West Ham showed fight all through the match despite the poor start.

How many other teams have scored against Chelsea this term? How many other teams have been by beaten by Chelsea by 4 or more goals this term? Then shut your gob.


I will spit on your church 365 days a year . you don't like it ?

SHOVE IT. We're here to stay and we are ging to urinate on your chips all season long.

We'll see how confident you are of West Ham going down after 10 games.

Easy making judgements when our opposition has been Chelsea,Man U and Villa ,isn't it,you ignorant ,arrogant pieces of filth.

Journalistic scum like this should be sent to Helmand province where they can rot. Or get shot.

Agree that Green simply has to cut the errors out with immediate effect. The world Cup is over. He hasn't become a bad keeper overnite. He simply has to pick himself up ,knock it on the head, and make a commitment to himself to stay strong and not allow this to happen again.

he is a skilled keeper. He is better than this. And it's down to him to show the fight to put it right

i think grant has a part to play in Green overcoming these "errors". He needs confidence, and this should come from the manager and team mates.Alot like how zola brought cole on form. We need grant do the same thing....

I will be the first to admit i moaned at grant as a manager etc, and the transfers brought in, but in all Ben Heim, Jacobson and obinha all played well i thought. Along with the rest of the team.

Cut out the errors and we will be ok and prove everyone wrong in the process.
