Well that was a pretty dire performance now wasn’t it? And it was Ivan Ramis, quickly becoming our nemesis, that started it all out for Wigan after Andy Carroll had started in fine form causing chaos amongst the Wigan defence. That was just about the high point as the Hammers have rarely played with such a lack of passion or direction this entire season. At times it almost seemed like they were moving in slow motion, already resigned to defeat, before coming to life for the last ten minutes of the game. At that point it was far too late though, even though James Tomkins provided a consolation goal in injury time. Wigan had done the job by then, and we had let them do it. Displays like this are worrisome, although we’re not going to declare a state of emergency quite yet. Big Sam will be doing everything in his power to fire the lads up for the next match and the players have to know Allardyce won’t put up with performances like that for long before you’ve lost your spot in the team.
