West Ham did today what they've been doing the last couple of weeks, play progressively worse. Ever since the arrival of the Argentine duo, things have been in a perpetual downfall. After picking up one point against Aston Villa on September 10th, they have now lost four games in a row. Will the Hammers have enough to beat Reading on Sunday and help Alan Pardew keep his job?
There were a couple of other surprises today in the UEFA Cup as the field for the group stage was set. At least Olympique Marseille, Schalke 04, and Hearts can concentrate on their domestic form now.
