Ffs, my post goes missing.  This forum is absolute garbage. Think 400 million is theoretically what they're allowed to spend before breaching FFP rules but in reality they'll only spend a small fraction of that. And the stadium is infrastructure debt and separate from transfer funds.

The biggest problem is Kane. Has he lost his pace or is it confidence? He should have been substituted at half time and he didn't even take the free kick that led to a goal. Phillips made him look really slow. The first half was just as dire as recent games but they did look a bit more interested in the second half.

A huge percentage of the squad are not good enough for a top six team- Tanganga, Sanchez and Sessegnon are dumb as a bag of rocks. Ndombele and Alli are lazy and unmotivated.

It's West Ham... If anyone's delusional, it's them... 

Delusional - characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder:

Not sure how you can possibly accuse West Ham supporters of being delusional . We are well aware of what we are , what we are capable of and where we sit in the grand scheme of things . 40 years without a trophy is sufficient evidence to ensure we keep our feet firmly on the ground . Yes , we do cling to the possibility that we may reach a cup final this season , possibly even win one God forbid , but we certainly ain't under any illusions . We've been here before and have become conditioned to failure and disappointment . We are on a good run with a decent group of players but that's about it .
Incidentally the "We are West Ham , we are massive" line is laced with more than a hint of irony . It's a form of self-deprecating humour which is clearly something that you seem to lack . Self-deprecating humour is something you could do with right now . It may serve you well in the coming months .

Yep, Conte will have learnt a lot about his players after Thursday's debacle. In some ways it was probably a positive result for the club and helps Conte  quickly identify where changes are needed. I'd honestly prefer if they go out of this **** competition in the group stages. Even with a strong team they struggle to beat the minnows and there is zero chance of this rabble winning the Europa Conference.
