We’re back to normal. Whatever that is.
West Ham chuck in the towel in the first 20 baffling minutes, create a mountain of their own making, and then nearly climb it.
Composure in front of goal and a lesser goalkeeper than Kasper Schmeichel and we could have won it.
Frustrating when we look back at chances that Andre Ayew and Andy Carroll should have buried, but what an amazing second half.
Leicester were tiring, sure, but West Ham gave it everything.
That’s what makes it so frustrating.
Injuries to Winston Reid and Pedro Obiang didn’t contribute to the defeat, and West Ham didn’t appear to miss Mark Noble.
Arthur Masuaku looked good when he came on, and Sam Byram had a decent game.
Manuel Lanzini is a magician and an inspiration.
The crowd? Some of the newbies need to learn that this is what our team’s like, so don’t give up and go home after 20 minutes.
I had a feeling Leicester were going to beat us going into this one, and I even predicted a 3-1 scoreline. I didn’t expect that to be the situation at half-time.
Ever the optimist (hah!), let’s take the positives from this one. There were a few, and it could have gone either way.
If only we could bury the memory of the opening 20 minutes by celebrating a win.
If you fancy ripping into the team and manager, off you go. Not me, guv.
I’ll savour the Lanzini goal and his overall performance, and shake my head in frustration at the missed chances and the baffling early surrender. But I’ll stand to applaud the second-half effort.
