West Ham United’s poor recent run of form continued on Saturday as they slumped to a 3-2 defeat against Newcastle United at the London Stadium (via BBC Sport).
The Hammers found themselves 3-0 down after just 51 minutes following goals from Ciaran Clark, Federico Fernandez and Jonjo Shelvey.
They did manage to claw a couple of goals back through Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass, but the damage was done and the defeat saw them drop to 12th in the Premier League table (BBC Sport).
West Ham have now failed to win any of their last five league outings having also lost against Crystal Palace and Everton, whilst being held to draws by AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United (Transfermarkt).
As a result of that bad run of form, several Hammers supporters have begun to turn on manager Manuel Pellegrini, with quite a few even calling for him to be sacked.
Because of this, West Ham fans expect to be doing better and because they are not the majority are pointing the blame towards Pellegrini. Here is what some said on Twitter after the game…
Unacceptable. Time to go

No where in this response does he take responsibility for picking the wrong team. Disappointing yet again from him today.

Just admit that you are past it and retire. Leave now before it turns REALLY toxic

Sorry but it’s apparent that @Ing_Pellegrini is getting squad selection and tactics wrong at the moment. Serious changes need to be made ASAP.

Awful system, no motivation and bad selections. MP not cutting it imo. Players also not stepping up to the plate

I expected a reaction after Palace, none, after Everton none, Sheffield not really, then this performance, slow, no width, defence, easy to slip a ball in , shocking. The manager has had over a season to sort this team out , he got away with it last season with fabianski .
