Re: ⚽ Chelsea v West Ham United: Match thread (30/11)

It has been a very long time since I cried happy tears after a West Ham game, but seeing Martin break down at full time was too much.

Wolves are absolutely beatable, let’s make it three on the trot.

Well, then it's up to us to put the game well to bed before AC comes on for the last 20 minutes.

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

For me, reintroducing Lanzini to the starting line-up is more or less a no-brainer. He was one of our best before the latest injury, and offers the right medicine for breaking down a normally quite resilient Palace-defence. With the international break coming up (he's not called up for Argentina as ...

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Win this and we're pretty much on track (apart from a GD that needs some decoration). I hope we can line up like this: --------------- Fab Fred-General-Diop-Masuaku ----------------Rice -----------Noble-Lanzini Antonio-----Haller----Anderson I'd probably swap Snods for Noble if the latter is not fit...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

I suppose the other thing is, that if we are saying that this is the best squad we've ever assembled and better than Bilic's squad in 15/16. Then are we also saying that this manager should actually be expected to finish at least 7th? Also depends on whether and how much the other teams (at least d...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Is the ensuing VAR having an effect on transfers? Are managers having to think in an extra 'dimension'? A kind of who can win us a pen or not give one. I hope not if I'm honest, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that way. I'm hoping, in my naïve mind, that VAR ideally will expose and crac...

That’s all I got.
I've seen a few (sorry) games with him in the line-up, never really noticed him. For 17 millions, I'm glad we're not signing him, regardless of age.

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

The only player in Belgium i would like to have at West Ham is Sander Berge. Would just fit in perfectly next to Rice. 21 years old Norwegian, 12 caps for them. Big and strong lad (1,93 m) but with good feet, really technical. Has a great crosspass . 15-20 million Euros should do the trick. Now tha...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

I think sometimes people conflate playing attacking football - which we do - with playing tiki-taka, which we very much don’t, especially at the back. It’s actually all fairly conventional back there. With the exception of Arthur, none of them are really doing anything adventurous with their passin...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

It is not fair to judge Reid on the back of yesterday's outing, so that's not what I'm doing, but I suspect the team has evolved too much for him to cope in the 16 months he's missed. As much as I appreciated his contribution and determination when he was at his peak, his distribution and touch tend...
