After a winless October (per BBC Sport), Manuel Pellegrini could have kicked off November with a much-needed win for West Ham, instead, it was much of the same for supporters.
Manuel Pellegrini: “I don’t know if it was an unacceptable performance. We conceded the first goal from a corner that was not a corner.”

The Hammers fell to yet another defeat in the Premier League as the east London side were swept away 3-0 by Burnley (per BBC Sport), and Pellegrini’s post-match comments did little to quench the fires the Chilean manager has seemingly started at West Ham.
The former Manchester City boss said he wasn’t sure if West Ham’s performance was acceptable or not, a comment that caused plenty of fans to rage on social media with Pellegrini saying via West Ham News: “I don’t know if it was an unacceptable performance. We conceded the first goal from a corner that was not a corner.”
Should Pellegrini be sacked as West Ham manager?
Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say about Pellegrini’s comment on Twitter, with lots of supporters now well and truly done with the former Malaga boss following this latest defeat in the league…
If this is true I’ll drag him out of the club

Very weak statement of a man unable to direct a team of footballers to success or even to effort to be their best. If he doesn’t know if that performance was unacceptable then he shouldn’t be in football.

For those words alone,he should be sacked.

@Ing_Pellegrini Still doesn’t excuse the other 2 goals we conceded with your inane tactics! You’ve been paid handsomely for your work but maybe you should just resign now to save us from further embarrassment.
