Ryan Fredericks

Hammersmith, England

Position: Defender
Born: 10th Oct 1992 (Hammersmith, England)
Signed: 1st Jul 2018 (£0)
Contract: 4 years
Previous Club: Fulham

 

vs Rapid Vienna

2-0: Thursday, 25th November

(Replaced Masuaku, 77) If he had a left foot, he would be a useful asset down the left. He does not and it is more painfully clear with him than any other footballer.

vs Liverpool

3-2: Saturday, 6th November

Did not play.

vs Genk

2-2: Thursday, 4th November

Did not play.

vs KRC Genk

3-0: Thursday, 21st October
(Played 23 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Cresswell, 67) Much the same as the above, except you could be forgiven for forgetting Fredericks had even played.

vs Manchester United

1-0: Wednesday, 22nd September
(Played 90 minutes)

A real shame he was forced off as he has looked good in both appearances this season and was a threat with his pace. Great run for the goal, good to see him be decisive around the area as he is often ponderous.

vs Manchester United

1-2: Sunday, 19th September

Did not play.

vs Dinamo Zagreb

2-0: Thursday, 16th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Maybe he should have scored, but his recovery pace in defence halted openings on more than one occasion and he got up and down the flank all game. A good return.

vs Southampton

0-0: Saturday, 11th September

Did not play.

vs Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 28th August

Did not play.

vs Leicester City

4-1: Monday, 23rd August

Did not play.

vs Newcastle United

4-2: Sunday, 15th August
(Played 2 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Benrahma 88) Brought on to eat up time.

vs Celtic

6-2: Saturday, 24th July
(Played 90 minutes)

One of a handful to feature for the full 90 highlighting David Moyes' lack of strength in depth, with Vladimir Coufal still absent. Beaten too easily for the second goal but otherwise a decent run out.

vs Southampton

3-0: Sunday, 23rd May

Did not play.

vs West Bromwich Albion

3-1: Wednesday, 19th May

Did not play.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 15th May
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

Did not play.

vs Burnley

2-1: Saturday, 1st May

Did not play.

vs Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 24th April
(Played 90 minutes)

If anything, Fredericks?EUR(TM)s only problem more frustrating than a lack of a left foot was his lack of confidence. Azpilicueta hated dealing with his pace, but Fredericks doesn?EUR(TM)t use it nearly as much as he could. Did well, especially in a new role, but often found his progress was halted by the fact he was down the left.

vs Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 17th April
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Johnson, 90) Brought on with the game gone.

vs Leicester City

3-2: Sunday, 11th April

Did not play.

vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

3-2: Monday, 5th April

Did not play.

vs Arsenal

3-3: Saturday, 20th March
(Played 11 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Benrahma, 79) Barely involved, wouldn?EUR(TM)t really know he came on and it didn?EUR(TM)t work for the team.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

2-1: Saturday, 20th February

Did not play.

vs Sheffield United

3-0: Monday, 15th February
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Johnson, 90) Can?EUR(TM)t argue with that substitute impact! A stoppage time sub scores a stoppage time goal, perfect.

vs Manchester United

0-1: Tuesday, 9th February
(Played 75 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 45) Threatened more than Bowen, put in some dangerous crosses and his speed made him a threat to Telles and then Shaw.

vs Fulham

0-0: Saturday, 6th February
(Played 16 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio, 74) Got up and down the wing and, as we got stuck into a defensive shape, he defended well.

vs Aston Villa

3-1: Wednesday, 3rd February
(Played 84 minutes)

There is a level of guile missing in his forward play that limits description as a winger, but any raised eyebrows over his selection have been shown just why he was picked. Up and down all game, his pace often helping stretch their defence and an option in behind, he supported Coufal excellently and there can barely have been a moment he wasn?EUR(TM)t right there as Grealish tried to square Coufal up. He is an option for a certain type of performance down the right, which is to Moyes?EUR(TM)s credit.

vs Liverpool

1-3: Sunday, 31st January
(Played 11 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 79) Fredericks is a right winger now? Doesn?EUR(TM)t look like it, but that?EUR(TM)s two games he?EUR(TM)s been brought on there.

vs Crystal Palace

3-2: Tuesday, 26th January
(Played 9 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 81) It might be an indication of the role Bowen was playing that Fredericks was his replacement. Came on, worked the flank up and down and covered Coufal well.

vs Doncaster Rovers

4-0: Saturday, 23rd January
(Played 90 minutes)

For all the intricacy in our play, Fredericks at a gallop and his burst of acceleration often made use of space better than anyone else

vs West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 19th January

Did not play.

vs Burnley

1-0: Saturday, 16th January

Did not play.

vs Southampton

0-0: Tuesday, 29th December
(Played 90 minutes)

Considering the right hand side of the team was two players who have featured little, the pair of Fredericks and Dawson were very good. He was excellent under pressure and looked not to have suffered from his time out of the team.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Saturday, 26th December

Did not play.

vs Chelsea

0-3: Monday, 21st December
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 90) I don't know why this happened.

vs Crystal Palace

1-1: Tuesday, 15th December

Did not play.

vs Leeds United

2-1: Friday, 11th December

Did not play.

vs Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 7th November

Did not play.

vs Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 31st October

Did not play.

vs Manchester City

1-1: Saturday, 24th October

Did not play.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

3-3: Sunday, 18th October

Did not play.

vs Newcastle United

0-2: Saturday, 12th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Most of the better attacking moments came from his work down the right, although sometimes his crossing seems just pure luck. Weak in defence.

vs Brentford

2-1: Saturday, 29th August
(Played 58 minutes)

Provided little going forward and was rather easily outfoxed for the Bees only goal of the game. Looked like he'd just returned from a fortnight on the beach in Mykonos...

Aston Villa

1-1: Sunday, 26th July

On the front foot much more this game, trying to get in behind the Villa defence and made a couple good runs through the middle too. And took out Grealish, which was a treat.

Norwich City

4-0: Saturday, 11th July

A good assist and a comfortable defensive display. Still seems to be holding back a little with attacking runs, but showed himself to be far better than what Norwich had to offer.

Burnley

0-1: Wednesday, 8th July

One really good cross does not excuse some poor defensive play, woeful use of the ball and some sloppy play.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 4th July

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Chelsea

3-2: Wednesday, 1st July

Solid and reasonably assured, although rarely any sort of forward option. That was likely tactical, and he made some important tackles, as well as being part of a much-improved defensive unit.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-2: Tuesday, 23rd June

Made to look a fool by Son for the disallowed first goal. Offered nothing going forward.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Saturday, 20th June

(Replaced Ngakia) Involved once, missing the ball for the second goal.

Arsenal

0-1: Saturday, 7th March

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Liverpool

2-3: Monday, 24th February

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Manchester City

0-2: Wednesday, 19th February

His switched-off defending to blame for the first goal. Made a couple solid contributions at the back before a collision left him falling on his shoulder and taken off with what looked a dislocated shoulder.

Brighton & Hove Albion

3-3: Saturday, 1st February

When making quick decisions going forward, he provides far better product. In the first half he was impressive in the Brighton half. Was he not allowed to do that in the second?

West Bromwich Albion

0-1: Saturday, 25th January

This would have been a good test for the wing back but he pulled up early doors with what looked like a hamstring.

Leicester City

1-4: Wednesday, 22nd January

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Everton

1-1: Saturday, 18th January

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Gillingham

2-0: Sunday, 5th January

This would have been a good test for the wing back but he pulled up early doors with what looked like a hamstring.

Bournemouth

4-0: Wednesday, 1st January

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 28th December

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Thursday, 26th December

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Southampton

1-0: Saturday, 14th December

Got caught out a few times by Djenepo but was left with little support and was solid.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 7th December

He’s culpable on two goals, awful on the ball a lot of the time. Hard to see that he’s Premier League standard, seems to be based on being able to run fast.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Wednesday, 4th December

One important tackle but at fault for the first goal and his use of the ball in attack was poor. Between him and Yarmolenko, there is not a fast decision in them.

Chelsea

1-0: Saturday, 30th November

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd November

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Burnley

0-3: Saturday, 9th November

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 2nd November

(Replaced Zabaleta) Should have started. Immediately showed himself more than fast enough to track their attackers. He and Masuaku were musts today and the manager deserves heavy criticism for leaving both ours.

Sheffield United

1-1: Saturday, 26th October

Did not play.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 19th October

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Saturday, 5th October

Was a very good performance until his poor play allowed the late pressure and eventual goal. Not solely to blame, but it was simple stuff executed very poorly. Created multiple chances.

Bournemouth

2-2: Saturday, 28th September

Better in attack today. Dealt with King for the most part.

Manchester United

2-0: Sunday, 22nd September

Was threatened by James’s pace and looked uncomfortable with it. Frustrating attacking display, dallying on the ball so often and some poor crosses. Sometimes dribbles like a man who thinks he’s lost the ball.

Aston Villa

0-0: Monday, 16th September

Kept his side controlled well and threatened with pace a few times.

Norwich City

2-0: Saturday, 31st August

Some sloppy moments, but again showing how vital his pace is in defence, covering others.

Watford

3-1: Saturday, 24th August

Not his best display on the ball. Loose back pass the most notable, but seemed to want to be rid of the ball quickly once in attacking positions, giving responsibility away.

Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 17th August

Solid performance, kept his side relatively unthreatened.

Manchester City

0-5: Saturday, 10th August

Recovery pace helps the team, especially centre backs scared of Sterling, but he has a season to prove his pace going forward isn’t wasted by his own attacking output. His crossing was amateur.

Athletico Bilbao

2-2: Saturday, 3rd August

Very effective on the right flank in the opening half. However it's his defensive ability that is of more concern - and will be fully tested next week at Manchester City.

Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 27th July

Match notes to follow.

Manchester City

1-4: Wednesday, 17th July

Enjoyed a productive opening 45 minutes, making several forays down the wing. A little less efective once City brought their big players on at the break.

Watford

4-1: Sunday, 12th May

Disappointing to end the season being forced off, but a really strong spell lately.

Southampton

3-0: Saturday, 4th May

Looking like a Premier League player now the rest of the defence is settled too. 8 clearances, 2 interceptions, 2 tackles, 1 shot blocked.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Saturday, 27th April

Looking like a Premier League player now the rest of the defence is settled too. 8 clearances, 2 interceptions, 2 tackles, 1 shot blocked.

Manchester United

1-2: Saturday, 13th April

Looking like a Premier League player now the rest of the defence is settled too. 8 clearances, 2 interceptions, 2 tackles, 1 shot blocked.

Chelsea

0-2: Monday, 8th April

Settled back into the side and his pace was very helpful to help with the breaks Chelsea made. His block on Higuain saved a certain goal, which turned an average performance into a good one.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

Defended poorly throughout. Second goal was his fault on three points. Was a threat in the first half, but only compared to what little West Ham offered. Hoilett made him look lower league at times.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

He was inconsistent today. He showed good pace at times, making some nice runs down the right-hand side in the first half. But he has to be to blame for Cardiff’s second goal and he made some dreadful passes costing West Ham possession.

Newcastle Utd

2-0: Saturday, 2nd March

Calm and assured, whilst bombing on well. Seems comfortably first choice, which would have been unthinkable a few months ago.

Manchester City

0-1: Wednesday, 27th February

Looking like a Premier League player now the rest of the defence is settled too. 8 clearances, 2 interceptions, 2 tackles, 1 shot blocked.

Fulham

3-1: Friday, 22nd February

(Replaced Zabaleta) One excellent intervention when Mitrovic got the wrong side of the defence. Otherwise, was neither good nor bad.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

He started off well, keeping pace with Zaha and making some good runs forward, but looked tired in the second half and didn’t hold the line at times. He was substituted for Zabaleta which was a strange move and could be the sign of another injury problem

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

Did well against Zaha when it was all about pace, but his positioning was not wonderful and often held a poor line. Made 5 tackles, but still didn’t feel secure and all the big second half chances down his side.

Liverpool

1-1: Monday, 4th February

A surprise inclusion, but a masterful one. His pace was vital to protect behind the centre backs, whilst he fought manfully down the flank all game. The making of him in West Ham shirt.

Huddersfield Town

1-1: Saturday, 10th November

(Replaced Zabaleta) Produced an effective performance when required to replace his stricken team mate, although it looked briefly late on as if he'd be forced to withdraw through injury (to his credit, he continued to play out the game).

Burnley

4-2: Saturday, 3rd November

Did not play.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-3: Wednesday, 31st October

Did not play.

Leicester City

1-1: Saturday, 27th October

Did not play.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Saturday, 20th October

Did not play.

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-1: Friday, 5th October

Did not play.

Manchester United

3-1: Saturday, 29th September

Did not play.

Macclesfield Town

8-0: Wednesday, 26th September

Chelsea

0-0: Sunday, 23rd September

Did not play.

Everton

3-1: Sunday, 16th September

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-1: Saturday, 1st September

AFC Wimbledon

3-1: Tuesday, 28th August

Caught too narrow, too often - although this was mainly due to tactical reasons. His opportunities to bomb forward were too limited, so there was little chance to utilise his pace.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 25th August

Better than on his debut an Anfield.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 12th August

Caught too narrow, too often - although this was mainly due to tactical reasons. His opportunities to bomb forward were too limited, so there was little chance to utilise his pace.
