West Ham have conceded four goals in a single FA Cup game against a side from the third tier or below for the first time since January 1936 when they lost 4-0 to Luton Town in a third round replay. They should simply have been too good for a team who have struggled all season. "Yes of course. I was ashamed of them", said Pellegrini.
By contrast, it was a sweet evening for Dons boss Wally Downes, a fully paid-up member of the original Wimbledon "Crazy Gang" from back in the day, as well as a former West Ham coach. Against them they had a team which didn't have any desire to win.
He was right. The first half was a complete embarrassment.
The likes of Pedro Obiang, Angelo Ogbonna, Andy Carroll, Adrian and Arthur Masuaku really have to look at themselves and their very bad performances. "In the first 45 minutes we didn't fight", said an embarrassed Pellegrini.
'Red scarf' protesters march against 'yellow vest' violence
The protests, which started over now abandoned rises in fuel tax, have grown into action against president Emmanuel Macron (below).
"I expect it from every player, not just Marko, to play as high performance as the player can give you".
@Alistairmann01: A point apart in the table and with nearly identical records, there are some striking similarities between Wolves and West Ham. "He made an important difference in the second half of last season and I hope he can do so again this season".
I hope that we will have the player that he can be in the coming games'.
But Wimbledon kept battling and kept attacking and were rewarded with a thoroughly deserved fourth to finish off the hopeless Hammers.
Women's star Coyne Schofield shines at NHL All-Star weekend
I would contend that this entirely tone deaf "well actually" on behalf of the league only makes it look worse. That prize is equal to her salary from playing hockey in 2018.
Wimbledon are staring in the face of relegation from League One this season but in the last round of the FA Cup, they managed to pull off an away victory.
They were swept aside, though, as Kwesi Appiah put AFC Wimbledon ahead and Scott Wagstaff's sublime double either side of halftime took them 3-0 up against Manuel Pellegrini's team.
The FA Cup gives you a chance for real tangible success and this was West Ham's big chance to go a long way.
MARKO ARNAUTOVIC'S lucrative move to the Chinese Super League would appear to be off, at least for the time being, after the talismanic Austrian frontman took to social media, offering West Ham United supporters an explanation and suggesting he wanted to stay at the London Stadium.
Pelicans star Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans, requests trade
As mentioned above, Davis could face a fine, but he is not the first player to request a trade. "I can say that to the world". This gives Davis suitors a temporary advantage over the Celtics ahead of the February 7 trade deadline.
Wolves have won more Premier League games thanks to winners in or after the 90th minute this season than any other side (3), including the reverse fixture against West Ham in September.
