Well, it’s been a few days since the shocking defeat to Newcastle United. It hasn’t been an easy few days as Hammer fans try to figure out how to salvage a season after only three games. Let’s take a look at who won and who lost this weekend.

Loser: West Ham United Fans

We were treated to an absolutely shocking performance from the men in claret and blue. There was no passion, no fight, nothing for us to hang our hats on. The midweek win against Cheltenham raised spirits a bit but everything came crashing down during 90 minutes of torture in the northwest.

No one looked good and Hammers fans have two weeks to brood over the ineptitude of our players, manager, and board.

Loser: Slaven Bilic:

He somehow remains the manager after a shambolic start to the season. His team completely gave up and showed nothing to be proud of. Losing to Newcastle who have been as garbage as we have is shocking. The fact we made them look like Barcelona is utterly baffling. The fanbase has turned on the once “super” Slav. His days certainly are numbered and the pressure is only going to get worse.

Losers: The entire West Ham squad:

No one on this team was a winner this week. It’s hard to even call out a specific player the performances were that awful. Look, there is talent on this team, we’ve seen it, where it went Saturday, is anyone's guess. Every single player should be ashamed of the performance they put forth against Newcastle. There is no reason that team that features, Chicharito, Michail Antonio, Andre Ayew, Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaletta, and a bunch of other professional footballers should roll over and give up like that.

Did anyone win apart from Newcastle? Want to call out any particular performance? Let us know with a comment.
