We had Antonio playing and supporting him at the start of the season, Since he got injured, Haller has lost both, form and confidence.
we also had Masuaku who gives an extra dimension to our attacking play as he stretches the play

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

I thought we defended ok. Playing away to a decent side you are always going to give up chances, especially after going behind It is going forward that worries me much more. We had three shots on target...one a tame header from a corner, one a decent long shot, and was the Snodgrass one on one the o...

What is our system? What are our tactics?
No idea! I was just responding to posters who said that we are not using him properly becuase he was part of a three at Frankfurt

For that price, you expect a degree of versatility/ adaptability

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

He has no support or help up front, when you watch him he is working hard off to the ball to get into space and calling for it yet no one passes it forward to him. This signing just highlights our owners really thought they could shut us up with one big big signing without putting in the support ne...

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Isn't that the problem with our system though? Haller can play there if it's done properly, and more effectively than Hernandez too, but we don't play it properly. We haven't got the midfield for it, our wingers are pretty one-paced if Antonio isn't there, our full backs aren't great either. There'...

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th manager

"We wanted to go and win two games in a row. We didn't play a bad game, but they scored on a set-piece. We had an option to score through Snodgrass but didn't do it. "I said before that when we didn't win games it was down to conceding at set-pieces. We never thought before this game we were going t...

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Arnautovic and Hernandez leaving has left us looking completely toothless upfront. I appreciate Arnie is a ****, but there’s 17 goals we have taken out the side and don’t look like getting close to with our current forward options. Pelligrini should have told Hernandez he was first choice. We would...

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Yep. Snodgrass was poor tonight, but at the end of the day he was still the only player who managed to get himself in a threatening position

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

I love the effort that Snodgrass puts in, but the fella is eternally a lower bottom half prem/top half championship player He’s our modern JOB. When that’s the level starting every game, you’re going to finish accordingly. That isn’t even to knock the bloke. I just don’t think he’s good enough to b...

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Does anyone find Fredericks a little frustrating? He’s clearly got some base qualities in pace and energy but his final ball is poor frequently. Yes. I like his commitment but he is a very basic player. He has pace but absolutely nothing else from an attacking point of view. As such our build up pl...

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Got what we deserved. Which is absolutely nothing.
Anderson played OK and Fornals and Ogbonna were decent enough.
Everyone else rubbish
We are a poor side going forward. Create next to nothing and so ponderous without Antonio

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

Very average. Similar to villa game except Wolves have scored Anderson, Fornals, Oggy, Balbuena and Cresswell been OK. Everyone else under-par particularly Frederick, Haller and (uncharacteristically) Snoddy Without Antonio we are very toothless. HAller just doesn't seem to know where to run or posi...

Re: Cresswell or Masuaku?

there does seem to be some revisionism on here that Cresswell is having a good season because he has scored a couple of goals He has been pretty rubbish in most games, same as the rest of the defence [bar Ogbonna] He played well vs Man U and played well v Chelsea. Mediocre in every other game from w...

Re: Grady Diangana

Another win for West Brom, although they benefited from a fairly blatant dive in the 88th minute Diangana did ok against a tough Preston side, but came off before the winning penalty This experience will be doing him a world of good West Brom have a decent side.
