Hammers struggling after defeat to Saints


01 October, 2016

Slaven Bilic, the West Ham manager, was just as disappointed as his captain and admitted it was painful to see the new stadium all but empty before the end with just a pocket of Southampton fans celebrating.

West Ham captain Mark Noble says his side's "laughable" performances can not get any worse following their 3-0 Premier League defeat to Southampton at London Stadium.

The Irons have started the season with just one win to accompany five defeats and have been left to occupy an early place in the drop zone with Stoke City and Sunderland.

The Hammers are enduring their worst start to the season since 2002 - when they were relegated - after slumping to a fifth loss in their opening six matches. "Everything that was average last season is way below par this".

With injuries depriving manager Slaven Bilic of both his first team left-backs, Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku, the Croatian was forced to transfer the 33-year-old Álvaro Arbeloa to an unfamiliar flank.

"After many chances we need a solution to score and this is important and first half we were a little nervous at the start of the game and we lost the ball quickly and it was important in the second half to correct this". We didn't respect our game. Now the credit is gone. Many teams have taken time to adjust to their new surroundings after switching grounds and West Ham are certainly making it look hard. They are the same players who did it past year.

"A big part of it is confidence, it is a chain reaction and it's very hard to have confidence when you're 2-0 down". "He's his own man, he demands certain ways and we are reaping the rewards of our work on the training ground".

The Hammers continue to resemble a lottery-winner rattling around their new mansion, with fans and players alike looking uneasy in their new surroundings.

The Hammers are confident that some good performances on the pitch will ease some of the resentment in the stands caused by their move from Upton Park to the London Stadium - but this was no way to go about it. Same with me. If you ask me if I am low tonight, of course. You can't harp on and say "If only we were at the Boleyn Ground" - they're not at the Boleyn Ground any more. I want to know what I can do better. I am doing that when we're winning, also. We didn't deserve to be up but it was a 0-0 half. "If you're asking me am I giving up, I'm not".
