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

Just off the Premier League official site mate. I wasn’t disputing what you’d put up but those are weird numbers. I think the difference is Lanzini carries the ball more than tielmans and therefore having made yards tends to turn back and recycle. Tielmans looks for a channel pass to Vardy a lot. A...

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

I noticed a stat on that looking at Tielemans at Leicester. Tielemans' Passes - 423 Forward - 135 Backwards - 70 Lanzini Passes - 318 Forward - 75 Backward - 76 Nowhere near good enough from Lanzini. I don’t mean to be pedantic but those numbers don’t add up I’m sure the missing passes were neither...

Burnley Palace Leicester above us. We've been poor lately even against Man Utd. Hopefully we might replace a few. I'm starting to ask about Anderson myself. Lanzini poor.
Seriously Anderson was outstanding?

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

The thing with VAR is, apart from being a complete joy killer, unless it’s used for everything it will never be fair. They get the benefit of a goal being given, fair enough, where’s the review of Haller being dragged down? Can’t happen. Just utter crap. But from our footballing perspective, not eno...

And I never answered the OP question, sorry, no I wouldn’t sell him until we are ready to. If that means more or less than £90m then do be it

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

Not just a comment on Declan but the average fanbase massively over-rates offensive contribution versus defensive abilities on the whole. Just look at discussions on who the best full backs in the world are. Most of them can’t defend for toffee. I agree completely, it’s the modern day FIFA matchpac...

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

Makes me laugh that some people don’t get how good he is, that’s mostly directed and the non West Ham fans who watch England games but it’s embarrassing and shows such a lack of understanding of the game. He’ll never get rave reviews because he’s snuffed stuff out before it’s developed rather than m...

Re: weekend's other games 8/9-10-11-12

Got to be honest I think there are massive comparisons between our two games, in fact they were the better side for large parts having the better chances. Taking a 1-0 lead wouldn’t have been unjust and like us if we’d done similar there may have been something in it for us. I think it ridiculous to...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Manchester City: Match Thread (10/8)

Point fingers all you want, the half time removal of Antonio made all the difference. Maybe there was an injury but anyone watching that would not have taken him off intentionally. Swap Lanzini for Fornals by all means despite the former having a decent game imho but don’t remove the wildcard.

Re: Arthur Masuaku

His only real weakness in my eyes is his defensive positional awareness, which I grant you for a defender is a bit of an issue. This can and is being coached from what I can see but he will always have trouble against certain opposition as do the whole team. Love watching him play and for me that’s ...

I’m sorry, angles or not, that doesn’t seem like offside to me, making a challenge is not making a pass, call me old fashioned. Just find the whole process tedious

Re: Are we West Ham anymore?

I think there’s far to much romanticising over The Boyleyn, number of games I’ve been too with exactly the same atmosphere, angst and anger over performances. The problem is more that the passionate vocal fans are far more segregated from each other and it’s difficult to muster anything more than th...

Re: Chelsea v West Ham United: Match Thread

Don’t comment on match threads much, if at all but I thought Rice was outstanding today. Oggy also had a great game but he’s only 19 and looks so consistent and composed. His game management and decision making look spot on. Not seen many as good at that level so young, I hope he is supported and do...

Re: Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham Utd match thread

Be honest it isn’t a foul, it’s a bit jumpy but it’s clean.
