It is safe to say that Liverpool gave the Hammers a real football lesson on Sunday, resulting in a 4-0 thrashing.
West Ham have really sent everyone’s emotions on a rollercoaster, especially at the London Stadium with many big score-lines going against them
The Liverpool game started with a real end-of-season feel to it, with little atmosphere in the crowd and when Daniel Sturridge rounded Adrian for the first goal, we all knew the outcome of the game; as soon as the away side scores, West Ham do not end up getting a result.
That fact was cemented when Andre Ayew missed from two yards out, hitting the post twice!
A few decisions could have gone our way in another game but in the end, Liverpool overpowered the Hammers and a poor first season at the London Stadium was certain to end on a bad note.
I get that Slaven Bilic was trying to win the game on Sunday but the hungry youngsters like Declan Rice and Domingos Quina were again made to watch on from the bench. The club’s officials tell the fans how they are “impressed” with these two stars in particular but they can’t even get two minutes at the end of the match, even though the Hammers have nothing to play for.
How are the youngsters ever supposed to get experience? This is something that needs big change come next season with the return of our loanees such as Reece Oxford, Josh Cullen, Toni Martinez and Reece Burke.
Looking ahead to the last day of the season where the Irons face off to mid-table Burnley, we have to look at making changes to the side. With Mark Noble still out, its hard to think of West Ham pulling out a win considering our awful record without our captain.
After Burnley, a big summer will commence and the board have a variety of challenges they are certain to face.
Firstly is Slaven Bilic the man to take West Ham into next season?
We will have to wait and see.
