Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

The gulf in class between Leicester and us was clear to see. They are a top 6 Premier League side,we are a bottom 4 side who will soon be sliding into the relegation zone. I remember chatting to some foxes fans in the pub before we played them last time we were in the Championship. We were the bigg...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

There was just one piece of good news from this match. At least we won't see that useless plodding Snodgrass again this season and we may yet have seen his last in a West Ham shirt. Rejoice in that news. :scarfer: His absence I would say slightly, but not by much, improves our chances of staying up...

Re: How much do you care about relegation?

Sorry if I don't fit in, but I'm a 5. I don't want to see us go down. I'll be devastated. As I posted in another thread this morning, I can't see how relegation will hit them directly in the pocket? Yes, the value of their asset, the club, will reduce, but other than that, can one of you learned pe...

Re: How much do you care about relegation?

The upsides.... More games Cheaper ST Move to the lower tier Potential day trip to Wembley (our only real chance) With no streams the bigger question is, what will you do with your time? I think you can watch any game that isn't a 3 o clock Saturday kick off on something called Ifollow. My Dad seem...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Who was he meant to play in the middle Proph? We have nothing He could have played Fornals in the middle He could also have stopped the ridiculous tactic of switching between a flat back four and a back five every 15 minutes Our squad is light at the moment, but that doesn't mean we just roll over ...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

What’s happened to Yarmolenko? Something a bit sniffy about him not even making the bench and not a lot being said about it or any injury updates. Is he already lined up to be sold? Fell out with Pell and Moyes doesn’t rate him? Very odd, that one. Don’t rate him much anyway, but wonder if we’ve pe...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

Crouchey - has Cresswell been shagging your missus? I hope not for her sake. Doubt it would be much fun I expect he is proper boring between the sheets. Every time he begins to build up a head of steam he pulls out. Bet he has a little tiddler too Tbf in this case I don't think Cresswell is particu...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

You can look at it how you like but in that interpretation you would be wrong. The left wing back was not far off where he should be given the play was over to the right If he doesn't move into the middle there is a massive great hole for Tielemans to have a field day in Was Masaaku too central, pro...

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

The bloke must be tearing his hair out. We’ve failed to get the ball anywhere near him from wide positions nearly all season. Tonight we had two decent opportunities, 1 Zaba went steaming on to the ball without thinking what to do, he nearly ran it out for a goal kick. The other Arthur could’ve hit...

Re: How much do you care about relegation?

Every other time we have got relegated in last 40 years or so we have come stright back up within two years so the memories are great. Lots of wins, promotion chase, playoff finals etc whilst also playing different teams and being able to act like the Charlie big potatoes for a couple of years. That...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

That's simply not true. The great AC Milan team would do exactly that. They would play an attacking 4-4-2 at home and switch it up away from home, often with a 4-5-1. Many teams have a different system for on the road matches. I have no idea how a Milan team switchig between two systems both with a...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

That’s the thing. We played both systems in both half’s. First half we lost 2-0, second 2-1. Leicester are just too young and fast for us. Why is he pursuing this nonsense of flipping between 5 at the back and 4 at the back during the matches? Does he think he is some kind of tactical genius? It wi...

Re: 2019/2020 Relegation Thread

The man who led us to defeats against a bottom 3 Everton side, a piss poor Newcastle team, a Burnley team who had lost 5 from 6, a Leicester reserve team, a pathetically poor Arsenal team. He was a clueless moron with his hair, golf skills and bank balance the only thing left intact. He also got us...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

That was my point! We were 1-0 down with seconds to go until half time when Arthur has his brain fart and we go in at 2-0 instead. Not sure about this The ball is over on our right flank and Arthur, as the wing back, has pushed inside to cover. The defence then inexplicaby stand still to allow Chil...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

This was a winnable game, what's he saving Antonio for, Liverpool? Setting up not to lose, hoping to nick a draw will not get you out of trouble. Yep We are not going to stay up defending a point That may have worked up 15 years ago, but it won't now Did Burnley decide that Leicester and Man U were...

i always felt the chances of staying up with Pelligrini were 80%+

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

He's on the right track - but he has to trust a proper forward next to Haller. i love nearly all your posts Bubbles, but how on earth you can say he is on the 'right track' is purely baffling That was about as bad a performance as we have put together since we got promoted It was absolutely horrifi...

Antonio was not fit.

That said, I hope he abandons this 3-5-2 stuff. We urgently need at least two signings to bolster the midfield.
3-5-2 :lol: ha ha ha
there is not any conceivable scenario that Moyes would ever play 3 just defenders

26 games and counting...
