Re: ⚽ Burnley FC v West Ham United: Match thread (09/11)

Sorry, we were on a bit of a run with Ogbonna partnering Diop. Exactly why was Balbuena brought back into the team?

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...

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

Funky Chicken - great post, I agree with pretty much all of your observations, there are many reasons we got thumped today but team selection, tactics and substitutions all played a huge part, and the manager has to hold up his hands for these.

Re: Prediction thread

1. Where we finish will be correlated directly to the number of minutes Carlos Sanchez plays this season. The more he plays, the bigger the number.

Re: Who was West Hams worst ever Centre Back

Sorry, I haven’t been through the entire thread, but Paul Hilton has got to be worth a shout? Only West Ham could beat a team 10-1, sign their centre back, and then play him up front.

Re: Winston is back!

A loyal servant to the club, generally a solid performer and deservedly a fans favourite. The last goal at the Boleyn alone warrants that. But overrated if you think he was world class. Prone to backing away from attacks right onto his keeper (especially attacks down the flanks), then when the ball ...
