Re: Czech Republic vs England

Rice dropped tonight for Winks. No real surprise to be honest.

Re: Czech Republic vs England

If you're playing as a defensive midfielder then you need to make tackles and interceptions. Sadly I don't recall Rice making one of either.

The rest of the side were as bad to be fair. Stinkers all round.

Re: Czech Republic vs England

Henderson and Rice just does not work. To be honest I wouldn't be surprised to see Rice drop to the bench for the next few matches.

No more than the Czechs deserve to be honest.

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

It's the usual problem. We play one up top, hit lofted balls up which are flick-ed on etc but with no-one within 30 yards of them or running beyond.

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

Needs more people around him. It also doesn't help that in typical West Ham fashion we bring in a fish out of water punt as back up in Ajeti and flog Hernandez even though Antonio had suffered his 3 month injury prior....so we are going to run him into the ground.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

Thought lanzini was poor. Noble was our best player today. Palace got the rubof the green, but also got there tactics spot on. Yarmolenko was not allowed to cut in on his left foot, they had 4 or 5 players near him when he received the ball on the edge of the box. Fornals needs to get up to speed w...

Apart from the move which led to our goal, which cut Palace apart and had them chasing shadows
It was a great goal. Hopefully we will realise that's what happens when you up the tempo a bit.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

another game where Anderson gets fouled the defender gets booked and he does not try to run at him after, when the fullback gets a yellow you would think a player with Andersons control and speed would want the ball all the time and keep going at him, He seems to get a few kicks and decides he has ...

Nobes ain't the issue for me.
For all the natural gift of Anderson, Lanzini etc, we seem a little predictable.
Noble tried to make things happen tonight. Not his best game for us by a mile but he grafted.

It's the flair players I want more from who don't really move at any real pace for me.

Re: Grady Diangana

To be honest I'd rather we were bringing this guy on rather than Wilshire or Fornals to go at a tiring defence.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

Lanzini was dire and Anderson wasn't much better. He just seems to want to drift through games showing no drive or passion whatsoever since 2019 started. Haller once again isolated, Yarmalenko too deep but showed some good quality, Noble huffed and puffed but got nowhere and Rice was great for 75% o...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

Meh. One moment of quality....the rest of it we were mediocre.

We're not quick enough going forward with our game plan seemingly sauntering in and hoping a ball in the box finds the one man we have in there in Haller.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

Let's face it, been coming. For the last 15 we have had no control of the game and Palace have been on top. No way should we be losing possession and territory to such an average midfield. We've been running in treacle. Doesn't help that the 2 subs have been practically non existent and Anderson ha...

Ayew and Zaha's constant falling over and whinging is really ****ing tedious.
