West Ham United were 1-0 up against Arsenal on Monday night, before an eight-minute capitulation saw them ship three goals and all three points.
Seeing the goals go in from Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have been a source of frustration for many involved with the Hammers.
This result means that Manuel Pellegrini’s side only has one win from their last 11 games across all competitions, resulting in pressure building on him.
At the moment I would imagine we have the Southampton game left….. https://t.co/DaAlIJ7f8Q

ExWHUEmployee has indicated that the Chilean manager only has the Southampton game to save his job, though that is one match too many for plenty of West Ham fans.
One supporter demanded they “look at the results since Oxford”, while another declared “he needs to go tonight”.
Pellegrini seems to have lost the backing of the fans, even if he is still hanging onto the support of the board by a thread.
Makes sense. Let’s have one more defeat at a relegation rival.

May as well just give them the win now

I dont understand why even if we did win at Saturday he still cant be sacked. Why cant a manager be sacked after a win. He needs to go whatever. Just look at the results since Oxford

I’m sorry but he doesn’t deserve that game left, just get rid already

The hesitance that has been shown in dismissing Pellegrini has also seen the board come under fire from the club’s fans.
One fan suggested that the Hammers are “the worst run club in the league” while another indicated they need to start “putting the club before money”.
A football legend: How much do you know about the late, great Bobby Moore? Test your knowledge below…
If Pellegrini isn’t dismissed soon, there is a chance there could be more comments of this sentiment aimed in their direction.
Wish the board puts club before ££££. MP has to go this evening. I don’t think I can take any more of this bloke.

So another possible 3 points thrown away? We’re the worst run club in the league #goldsullivanout

In other news, the Hammers have shown an interest in signing another goalkeeper.
