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

We seemed off the pace yesterday, slow and lethargic in our build up, no energy and urgency. But we still looked in control of the game and had chances to at least get a point. What worries me with our team, If the system isn’t working we’re stuck because we don’t seem to have a plan B. It’s never a...

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

I can see this being a very open end to end game where I think we will win 2-1 with Lanzini and Haller scoring. Hoping the crowd will play there part too. My team would be Roberto Fredricks Diop Ogbonna Cresswell Rice Noble Lanzini Yarmolenko Haller Anderson Subs. Martin Masuaku Balbuena Fornals Sno...

Re: Fabianski's injury

Huge blow. There is no replacing Fabianski, he wins us so many points on his own. Only at West Ham would a goalkeeper take a goal kick and be out for 3 months. Let’s hope Roberto comes good, and let’s get right behind him.

Re: ⚽ Aston Villa v West Ham United: Match Thread

We had plenty of possession, but didn't seem to get out of 2nd gear. We always seem to slow down in the final third, giving the opposition a chance to get everyone behind the ball. Then we Pass it around the edge of the box slowly waiting for an idea, then we struggle to get back from the other team...

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

This Norwich team have created chances for fun against Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle, with also there defence giving chances away for fun. This game will be very open what with our defence, and it could go either way. Not sure if Wilshire is up for two games in the space of a few days? Fabianski ...

Re: ⚽ Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham Utd: match thread

I wrote a few pages back about whether Pellegrini would think about getting a defensive coach in? I like Fredricks, Diop and Balbuena, but put them together and something isn’t right. There shape and positioning is all over the place. Maybe someone like Rio Ferdinand or someone who could work on our...

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

It was one hell of a dismal performance, but I won’t panic just yet. See how we are after 8-10 games with hopefully our best starting eleven. I was just wondering if Pellegrini would think about getting a defensive coach in, someone like Rio Ferdinand or a Martin Keown to organise our defence, as I ...

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham United: Match Thread

This will be a hard game, and I honestly couldn’t predict the outcome. Two teams who haven’t started well in there first two games, and Watford will be wanting a reaction after there last home game. I would start with, Fabianski, Fredricks, Diop, Balbuena, Johnson, Rice, Noble, Lanzini, Antonio, Hal...

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

I was only suggesting other options as Noble is injured at the moment. Having him in the team last season still didn’t stop us conceding a lot of goals, and getting overrun in midfield most games.

Just thinking at other options.

If not Diop, then why don’t we try Cardoso in there alongside Rice?

As we are crying out for a midfielder to protect our back four, what are people’s thought’s on maybe putting Diop in there alongside Rice?

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

My biggest gripe is we have a lack of ability to track runners and chasing back we are looking at the back of their shirts. It always looks like a lack of pace or fitness but we just don't seem to have players that read the game well. I’m going with: Fabianski Fredricks Diop Balbuena Masuaku Rice No...

When you have De Bruyne and David Silva out sprinting your team you know your in trouble. Our players are so slow, unfit and do the basics of football wrong. So many poor displays, apart From Haller, Antonio and Fredricks the rest didn’t turn up. I don’t care what people say about City, no team shou...

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

A midfield of Fornals, Lanzini, Wilshere and Anderson looks like a collection of lightweight luxury players. Exciting as this will be in most games, against City we would be asking for trouble. I would start with this team based on players who are fit, and hoping Fab is fit. Fab Fredericks Diop Balb...

Re: Hertha Berlin vs West Ham Utd: match thread (31/7)

My memory must be playing tricks on me, I forgot he had a 20 mins spell at playing well against the City kids in the first half. But apart from that, I sometimes forget he is on the pitch.

Re: Hertha Berlin vs West Ham Utd: match thread (31/7)

I know many people won’t agree with me, but I would drop Anderson and have Fornals on the left, Lanzini in the middle and Antonio on the right. So far in the preseason games Anderson hasn’t warranted a starting place. He doesn’t track back, gives the ball away far to easily, gets shrugged off the ba...

Re: Hertha Berlin vs West Ham Utd: match thread (31/7)

Why does our defence look like they have only met for the first time today. They should be fully organised with 10 days to go. No leader at the back shouting or anything. We look so lethargic. Every game we look like coinciding two or three. It’s not good enough.
