Crystal Palace v West Ham Utd: match thread

Wouldn't like to call this one.

We could be on a roll, or could come crashing back down to earth.

352 again

Same team again barring injuries. Adrenalin and team spirit should get them through the 90 against a team with rock bottom confidence.

Stay solid, no unforced errors then try to pick them off. A draw might be the best we could get but something to continue building on and wouldn't be the worst result in the world under the circumstances.

0-1

I'd stick with El Matador. Hart hasn't done anything wrong really but we should never have signed him, plus Adrian is, and always has been, the b*ll*cks.

Wing backs, hammer the f**k out of their speed merchants and silence those tw@ts that they like to call 'ultras'. Such a bunch of bellends.

2-0, onwards and upwards, we're gonna finish seventh :scarfer:

Agree.

Same eleven.

Without the out and out wingers we seemed more balanced. Not sure why.

Let's really stuff Palace and not wait to trail the game before getting going.

3 - 0

at approximately 8 45pm tonight, i couldn't see us beating anyone. now i can see us beating anyone.

first name on the team sheet is nobes, he owes the owl one after he snubbed nobes during the form of his career in order to put a bloke who played an hour of football that season on the plane and play him out of position.

Zaba for Byram and Reid for Rice.

That would be the only 2 changes to the starting 11 from last night. :thup:

I think we should keep the same team. But I reckon Zab, Hart, Hernandez and Winston will all come in.
Ayew and Noble definitely deserve to keep their spots. If anybody from last night had to be dropped I think it should be Carroll.

The team is fragile at the moment and tinkering a winning team on such a high asks for trouble. I think Bilic would be an idiot to reinstall many of those that lost 3-0 against Brighton. Thus current teams confidence will be sky high. Why rock the boat just for the sake of it?

As for Rice, producing such a convincing display at the back whilst orchestrating those around him at Wembley against one of the form Teams under intense pressure, tells me all I need to know about him. Age is but a number to the lad. He should definitely keep his spot against the Nigels. Newcastle was a steep learning curve for him but I think that's only done him good and made him more focused.

..................................Adrián..............
...................Kouyate...Reid....Ogbonna...
...Byram.....................................................Cresswell..
........................Noble....Lanzini....
................Ayew..........................Antonio..
.............................Hernandez........

That would be my team Byram Cresswell to provide width Ayew and Antonio to also offer width when required but their main job is to support Hernandez and not leave him iscolated.The one small concern would be lack of height and strength in the middle that’s why I picked Kouyate in defence to help out with that.

That team is easy good enough for the win :crest:

I would just swap Hernandez for Carroll. Other than that, same as last night.

Only changes I would make would be Chicharito for AC, Zab for Byram and possibly Reid for Kouyate. Keep Rice in the team, the boy will only grow with each game. I’ve never been completely sold on Fernandes but thought he did ok last night. I’m a big fan of Hart, but admit it’s nye on impossible to drop Adrian after last night.

Same team starts, every one of them has earned the right to a place after beating spurs.

I am, when he's not seen galivanting up front in the 5th minute! He'll never learn, bless him. Keep him in defence please, Slav.

Kouyate in a back three was responsible for both spurs goals.
I have no problem playing three CBs on saturday (needs must) but would play Reid, Fonte and Ogbonna

Zab and masuku wing backs

Obiang, Nobke in CM

Ayew and Lanzini floating about

Hernandez up front

Antonio to come off the bench


And of course Adrian in goal

Same formation for this game with Reid for Kouyate and Hernandez for Carroll. I wouldn't change much else.

It's going to be a tough game and I won't be surprised if it is a draw.
