Who's Gonna Tell Stevie G?

As the dust settles after West Ham's demolition of Liverpool at Anfield today, the jostling for safe seats has already begun as somebody has to break the news to Stevie G. Liverpool were so poor that Hammers fans took to chanting for a fourth before the end!

Liverpool lacked leaders on the pitch and having limped in 2-0 down at half time sortely needed a Stevie G to rally the troops. Instead, their best player got himself foolishly sent off and they imploded. Whatever about Lovren's crazy generosity for the second goal, Sakho's strike was facilitated by some incredibly soft defending that allowed him to seize a 50-50 ball and position himself for a shot despite the attentions of three Liverpool defenders.

The Mark Noble sending off was truly awful. Not even close to a yellow card. One would expect even the unusually partisan Reds to support Hammers fans calls that it be overturned.

For Liverpool its a shocker but they still have made a good start to the season and have, until today, defended well.

BTW, the answer to our quiz is Seb Lletget - ex-Hammer who is banging in the goals alongside Mr Gerrard for LA Galaxy. Keep up the good work stateside Seb and enjoy the moment!
