Not a single player or member of staff associated with West Ham United emerged from the 4-0 hiding at Oxford United with any credit.
Pablo Zabaleta was forced to apologise for another shambolic defeat to a League One side – the third straight season West Ham have been knocked out of a domestic cup by a team from the third tier.
West Ham fans are seething with manager Manuel Pellegrini and his players.
Take your pick
But they are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a scapegoat from those that were humbled so embarrassingly on the pitch.
One player in particular who has taken a large share of criticism in the wake of the defeat is midfielder Carlos Sanchez.
West Ham fans are still trying to figure out how Sanchez has stolen a move to the Hammers.
A dismal flop at Aston Villa, the 33-year-old somehow has 82 caps for Colombia.
He has been woeful in all of his 10 appearances in the claret and blue.
But Pellegrini either did not see fit or was not given the budget to upgrade Declan Rice’s back-up in the summer.
Sanchez’s performance at Oxford has been described as ‘lazy’ and ‘disastrous’ by some fans on social media and forums.
In fact his display was so bad the only picture taken of him from the night was when he arrived for the game at the Kassam Stadium (above).
The ultimate insult has been delivered by Oxford United fans, though.
Oxford fan delivers ultimate insult and Hammers supporters agree
Taking to Twitter after the game a fan of West Ham’s slayers claimed the international would not get in the Oxford side.
“Not even being over the top here because we just won,” the Oxford fan posted.
“But I genuinely reckon that Carlos Sanchez wouldn’t make it into our team.”

The supporter was probably expecting a backlash from angry Hammers fans.
What he actually got was almost universal agreement, plenty of laughs and West Ham fans wishing Oxford well for the rest of the season.
Here are a selection of responses from West Ham fans to the post.
