A classy and worthy Bristol City defeated clueless West Ham, who appeared to be a very bad Championship squad.
With Said Benrahma being sent off for kicking out after being hauled down in the first few minutes of the second half and demonstrating his dishonour to the Hammers cause, this was as awful as it gets.
Tommy Conway scored the first goal of the game when Mavropanos mishandled the ball in the back, and Danny Ings, you guessed it, squandered the two finest Hammers opportunities from close range.
We are a very bad team without Bowen, Paqueta, and Kudus; we had no fight against a Championship team that fought for every ball.
After what we witnessed at Ashton Gate tonight, there are no justifications for such a performance, and you should be concerned about the weekend trip to Sheffield United.
On the plus side, Emerson and Zouma played excellent games, but overall, this was yet another shocking game.
Benrahma was the real antagonist of the match, sending us off after a foul and making sure we had little chance of winning the match with just ten men.
Despite having a terrible season, he was disgraceful tonight, orchestrating a moment of utter incompetence that guaranteed our elimination from the second domestic Cup competition.
Horrible, terribly horrible—another night to forget.
