Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Norwich City: Match Thread

Yarmolenko had his 5 best moments of the season in maybe 3 minutes there, very excited for him to be 100% back

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Norwich City: Match Thread

Noble is having a rough half, he's making so really poor decisions with the ball.

keeping the shape decently though, so bit of a mixed bag

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Norwich City: Match Thread

Lovely,

Masuaku makes it, but a tougher finish than it looks, and the quick decision and good pass from Anderson was something we never used to do.

What was Noble doing there, just fell down and gave the ball away

Re: Carlos Sanchez

He's perfectly fine, his positioning is good (probably better than any of our other midfielders) and he isn't afraid to make a challenge. His passing is fine, honestly the only bad pass I really noticed was on the 2nd goal, and that was more a situation where he tried to lead Snodgrass upfield and S...

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

It's as if the xG stat just assumes that the ball was on the ground and Haller was just tapping it in and I don't understand why his other chance is a more difficult chance at xG 0.68. On the Hughes chance that was xG of 0.84 according to understat.com It doesn't account for the overhead, but neith...

I think it was them having a go at the ref for not making Anderson go off the pitch at his nearest point to.
Yep, he did it twice, probably to get himself and the linesmen a quick breather in the heat.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Is Antonio playing well as sub because he should be starting or is he changing the game because he isn’t starting and he’s out to prove a point? Under Pellegrini he’s returned to his best form. Prior to that there were lots of comments about coasting, not working hard enough, bulking up too much et...

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

We needed another striker though, so I don’t think we should have used the Ajeti money on anyone but Ajeti. Also, CB is one of the lowest priority positions for us, we just bought 2, and with Reid supposedly healthy we have 4 solid PL CBs, and we brought in Cardoso who can fill in if we have an inj...

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

I'm liking Fornals' contribution. He's running around well, hassling the ball, defending and getting forward. Hopefully a sign he's settling in.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Antonio is a decent winger, but a terrific sub. When he only has to go 30-45 minutes he can use all that pace and power without worrying about tiring.

I'd like to see us start Fornals eventually, then Antonio in for whichever MF (Anderson, Fornals, Lanzini, Noble) is tiring most.

I wonder if Pelle sees him as a 45 minute player, and as such better to bring his pace on against tired legs. Antonio did seem to be exhausted 60-65 minutes in last season when he started.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Terrific play from all 3. Masuaku creates the opportunity, Anderson makes space and slots a perfect pass, and Haller gets in among 5 defenders to coolly slot it home low.

WHoops, forgot he was out. Ajeti then (though that's a less attractive option, so probably Fornals or Antonio coming on0.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Lot of options for Pelle here at the break. Yarmo seems the obvious player to come off. Question is who comes on. 3 options to me.

1. Like for like, Antonio on as a winger
2. Fornals into the middle with Lanzini moving oustide
3. Chicha on as a 2nd striker moving to the 4-2-2-2

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Yarmolenko is struggling, asssume he comes off for either Antonio or Fornals at the half. Understandable for the injury he's coming back from, but he is hurting the team right now.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

I don't think we've kept possession from a single goal kick all season.
