Re: 2019/2020 Relegation Thread

If we get relegated is there a clause that means we lose the stadium? That would be a right old shame.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Joe Allen is not better than nothing - we are better off developing Coventry or another academy midfielder than using up a squad spot on an ageing journeyman who will want stupid wages.

Re: Gillingham v West Ham United: FAC3 Match Thread

Biggest takeaway from last night for me was the manager changing the tactics/formation depending on the opposition. How many times did Pellegrini need, and yet fail, to do that during his tenure? Our change from Bournemouth seemed very obvious, and it worked. Coming down to a league one pitch, away,...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Masuaku played his best football under Moyes imo - beating players for fun and sharing the defensive side with Cresswell. Hopefully he is deployed in a similar role as our midfield is not good enough for him to be a 'modern fullback' ala Trent or Walker. Suspect Haller will thrive also, although our...

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

I'd be astonished if anyone thinks we'll win this. Even when we've been in good form this lot have bullied us and done us 2-0. We will get battered next week. The exact kind of physical hardworking side that excel playing against us. 3-1 Burnley, Wood x2, Rodriguez and Noble pen. Season over and a f...

Re: Cresswell or Masuaku?

I think Pellegrini needs to be brave and rotate them depending on the opposition. Cresswell had a good game and yet Bournemouth away is the sort of game I would prefer to play Masuaku; i.e. when we expect to be countering and seeing less of the ball. Games where the opposition will set up a bank of ...

Re: Update on where you think we'll finish

I don't think many of us or the players would have been happy with a point before the game. However when you have idiot Dean reducing us to 10 men with 25 minutes to go, in the context of that, I think a point (i.e. not losing points as a result of the red card) is a good result. If we had been 1-0 ...

Re: ⚽ Newport County v West Ham United: FL Cup Match Thread

I have no doubt we would have conceded last night if Ogbonna had played. Balbuena made so many aerial clearances whilst Diop had a tough battle but ultimately came out on top. Roberto had a good game as did Sanchez. Hugely concerning that Cresswell was being skinned by league two defenders. Anderson...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Concerning fullbacks... Looking at the top six; Zinchenko + Walker Robertson + TAA Alonso + Azpilicueta Kolasinac + Bellerin Rose + Trippier Most of them you would say their attacking output is their strength. Only Azpilicueta and Rose I would call being good defensively. Point is the way the modern...

Steinberg update; Announcement pending. West Ham about to break their transfer record and sign Haller in a fee worth up to €50m.

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Have a horrible feeling this little debate over paying the lump sum vs instalments is going to tear this whole thing down. Whilst most transfers are done in instalments, we must be aware that release clauses in La Liga are entirely different and Valencia's agreement is only void if we go to La Liga ...

Arsenal please. No strong feelings towards them.

Despise Liverpool but hope they rip Spurs apart with a Mane masterclass - leading to a bid from Real Madrid and him handing in a transfer request.

Pellers is reportedly happy with the two LBs according to Sam Inkersole. Everton supposed to be looking at Cresswell but doubt that happens.

Re: Week's other games (4-10/05/19)

The fine margins that have resulted in this absolute travesty of a final are absurd. In the first leg, Barcelona had about 3 chances to make it 4-0 in the first tie, which Dembele fluffed, not to mention Messi failing to score a TAP IN at the Kop end! Absolute disgrace how Messi-dependent they are f...

The second he was involved yes, but the first goal came from a ball in behind Cresswell, where Ogbonna had come out aswell, leaving Diop as the only centreback to contest the box against two Cardiff attackers.

Re: ⚽West Ham Utd v Huddersfield Town: match thread (16/3)

Strange that Fredericks is being dug out here given both goals were down to a lack of communication between Cresswell and Ogbonna either on the overlap (1st goal) or inside our own box (2nd). Snodgrass Hernandez and Noble were all very poor and Anderson was just getting kicked off the park. Need to ...

Re: ⚽ Cardiff City v West Ham Utd (9/3)

Maybe controversial but I would not start Lanzini against this lot as they will try and kick us off the park from minute 1. Match them in physicality and let our flair players pass through them. Manu can come on at 60 when the game is hopefully won.
