Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Hardly anyone has done much business so far. People need to show a bit of patience instead of throwing their toys out of the peak.

Re: Next managerial casualty

Martinez is bang average. How he ever got the Belgian job I'll never know, and has repeatedly failed with that team consisting of the likes of Lukaku, KDB, both Hazard's, Vertonghen, Tielmans, Mertens, Coutois & Aderweireld. Should be getting to at least the final of the Euro's and WC with a te...

Re: Next managerial casualty

:evil: Not been on here for a while due to log in problems. But I would have replied to this at the time. 'Crawling out all over the place'? What a thing to say just because some people have a different opinion. IMO Moyes is, as I've said before a fairly average manager. Probably the right level fo...

Re: Issa Diop

I think you mean the 4th goal that was disallowed That one too. For the third he goes to tackle then backs off for no reason allowing the opponent all the time in the world to pick out the pass. The disallowed one was worse, but the third was one of those where you just go through with a hard tackl...

Re: Issa Diop

The big man is part of a makeshift defensive line, sure, but that shouldn’t stop him from cutting out that third goal.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

It pains me to say it but Mike Dean had a decent game today, I'd be the first digging him out if he'd had his usual game against us so only fair to say when he had a rare professional performance There were a few cheeky winks and gestures for the cameras too. He really is maturing into a fine all-r...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Personally I don’t care about the mistake. The repeatedly blunt attacking performances are beginning to get on my areolae though. Thought he had looked pretty good heading into this match. Today he just seemed leggy. You also have to bear in mind that Leeds are a gung ho side. They do not give peop...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

That goal was on Vlasic. Diop played the ball to his feet and he was unable to control it and gave it away. It wasn't q difficult ball to control Moyes certainly wasn't happy as subbed him immediately Obviously, but Diop should have cleared his lines as there was plenty of time for him to handle th...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

Strange subs from the Moyesiah today. Vlasic has been getting better and better - replacing him with the Spitter was bizarre. We had looked more dangerous when Arthur came on in the last game but Bielsa seemed wise to that tactic. He was trying to be proactive, but I think holding fire for 10 minut...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

I actually didn't think he was too bad - mistake aside. The problem we were having was not being able to get either Vlasic or Bowen into the game enough. I do wonder sometimes though why we bought a really expensive central attacking midfielder to play left-wing. He wasn't "really expensive&qu...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

The main issue is Diop in the defence. Having Soucek would have probably made enough of a difference but having Oggy or Zouma would have made a much bigger difference. His play for their third was diabolical.

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Although him losing possession led to Leeds scoring their third, I blame Diop for passing it to him when he had a player right behind him. Diop was under no pressure whatsoever. Moyes then hooked him as if to put all the blame on him. Yet other players like Antonio have been pants for several games...

Ya. Was gonna say:

Moyes got schooled by Bielsa today.
Dunno if I would go that far, but Bielsa certainly addressed the weaknesses that he had seen during the FA Cup match.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

Was the bowl the problem when beating Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs or Man City in the cup? Bielsa beat us. He saw the best we could offer last weekend, we were weakened by no Soucek but he had his better players out today and a plan. At least we are still in the cup. Bielsa did well today. Moyes tried...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Ho ho - from one extreme to the other with this kid. He made a mistake for their third, but I don't think its a coincidence we failed to get hold of the game the same once he came off.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

Was an exciting game and we should have got a point at the end. How Bowen missed that I'll never know. Funnily enough taking Vlasic off seemed to take the momentum away from us. He made a bad mistake for their third goal, but we never really got back on the front foot the same when he came off for M...

Leeds worthy of their lead at the moment. Need to tighten up in the second half.
