Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

We didn't put enough pressure on Adams...and even when we did he just fell over and conned the poor ref. Teams are not daft anymore....you stop our full backs coming forward and you stop our play. You stick Moses and Arna wide and that's our width out of the window. We have not worked out how to pl...

Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

The argument is why Valencia needs to play in midfield when we are playing a Stoke team with Charlie Adam's pace in the centre of the park. Because Nobes and especially Song acted much slower than Adam did yesterday. Plus Stoke constantly overloaded our left side and again showed us, that Cresswell...

You don't need to be quick to make clever decisions. Adams direct passing was much better than Song's.

Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

What was he doing in midfield anyway ? We had an extra player in midfield...and they had Charlie Adam who Mark Noble looks quick against. We looked completely out of gas with Nobes and Song who constantly slowed down our game and killed numerous opportunities to start counter-attacks as he dwelled ...

Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

So would you agree it is defensive winger.....the exact position that Valencia played yesterday and a combinationation of left back and left wing. He had to track back a lot as our midfield wasn't able to cope with Stoke's pressure, while they we're overloading the right hand side, with Arnautovic ...

Even at the World Cup he played as a winger, when Caicedo was playing as a target man up front. At Pachuca in Mexika Valencia played as an inside winger behind another striker too.

I really felt sorry for the old bloke behind me who booed his heart out when Nolan came on. His son looked bewildered too. So i felt sorry for the young boy too.

Just play the poor fella up front.
Valencia played as winger for his teams in Ecuador, Mexiko and the ecuadorian NT.

Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

And I still find it pointless to play 3 CM's in Song, Noble and Kouyate. There is just no pace or flair in our team what so ever. I agree. I brought this up a few weeks ago. I don't see us progressing with Song & Nobes playing together. Kouyate is still not the finished article, as he got caught ou...

Re: West Ham United v Stoke City: Match Thread.

Be interested to hear that last point developed. For me, the failure to invest in January was criminal, but I understand them since that window usually provides poor value for money. I'd be interested to hear what you think are the other failures. There shouldn't be a situation when the manager is ...

A lame duck as manager.

Lame ducks on the pitch.
