Three Images That Capture Exactly Where West Ham Are Right Now

Leaving the London Stadium after the Arsenal game a few weeks back many West ham fans had a genuine sense of hope and even, dare we say it, expectation about the future. With a decent squad, a solid financial base and an astute and experienced manager things looked pretty bright - a run at the Cup and push for a top half finish seemed reasonable.

Wind forwards a fortnight and we are back in circus mode. Our main striker decides to destabilise the squad, we once again stumble against modest mid table opposition in Bournemouth and then we go into overdrive with a stunning defeat at lowly Wimbledon followed by an absolutely abject performance against Wolves wherein we didn't manage a single shot on goal and were lucky to only lose 3-0. It's hard to disagree with Pellegrini's post match analysis that 'it's hard to play worse'!

Even more worrying, Marko Arnautovic hobbled off and left the ground on crutches raising fears that he might be absent for much of his remaining time at the club! In all honesty, we should feel relieved that we have 31 points in the bag because we look lost right now!

And then Monday night brings Mo Salah and his mates to further test our dodgy defence!
