Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Getting Bowen over the line would be the best news for Haller; a wide player who can actually put in an early (quality) cross. It’s what he has been crying out for.

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Consistently **** at team selection and tactics Haller on his own Lanzini starts over fornals Slowest midfield in the league of noble, rice and snod. Really playing to our strengths :) :D :thup: Couldn't agree more. A tactical dinosaur, very poor appointment. Looking forward to Manager #19, can't c...

Re: West Ham Utd v Liverpool: match thread

Mr Moyes demonstrates yet again what a clueless dimwit he is. Didn't we do this against Leicester, invited pressure then changed at half time when 2-0 down? Lanzini has the presence of a jellyfish and this will be wave upon wave (pardon the pun) of Liverpool attacks, with Haller isolated and no effe...

Strongest team cannot include Lanzini. On current form and fitness he shouldn’t be anywhere near our match day squad, even our injury hit one.

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

Pretty clear that to function at his peak he needs two things. Firstly, he needs (and wants) ball from wide positions put into the box early, so he can attack whilst being marked one-to-one. If you watch him carefully, when we get it out wide he actually takes a couple of steps back and springs as i...

Re: Sheffield United v West Ham United: Match Thread

I’m sorry but that is shocking team selection, for so many reasons. Zabaletta isn’t a wing back. Balbuena may struggle on the right of a back 3; he lacks pace and if exposed to a winger operating behind Zabaletta that’s not sensible. Masuaku is just toilet. And we’re overly defensive, weak in attack...

Re: Manuel Lanzini (New Contract Signed)

And there was I thinking I was the only supporter hugely underwhelmed... Just one other observation, in our present system it’s vital that the AM’s, whether central or wide, occasionally get beyond Haller. Otherwise the opposing centre backs can play as high up as they like. Yarmolenko does it regul...

Re: Manuel Lanzini (New Contract Signed)

Hard hat on. Can’t see it being a huge loss. Think he’s overrated on this forum. Struggles to influence games, seems to only impose himself in the latter stages when (if) the game gets stretched. Easily knocked off the ball. I’m not saying he was the only player who underperformed against Palace to...

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

He's doing a first class job holding up the ball, but not getting the service (yet) that plays to his strengths. Several times at home to Man Utd our players got in advanced positions on the flanks and you could see him peeling two yards backwards off his marker in anticipation of an early ball in, ...

Re: Jack Wilshere

My overriding impression based on what I’ve seen of him playing for us, is that he too often looks like a boy trying to play a man’s game. Don’t want to write him off, but thus far not much cause for optimism.

Re: ⚽ Brighton and Hove Albion vs West Ham United: Match Thread

Wilshere, Lanzini, Fornals in midfield, plus Hernandez up front, ridiculously lightweight, will get brushed aside. Hernandez can’t play alone up front. Sometimes this game isn’t rocket science. Very poor tactical decision by the manager, 45 minutes of opportunity wasted, hope he changes things arou...
