Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

Something you're forgetting about with Chelsea is just how bad they look when Mendy isn't in goal. Kepa is not the same standard at all and I think they might struggle for a little bit now, especially with the Lukaku drama bubbling up.

Re: The Curious Case of Rice and Soucek

It's definitely seems like Soucek wasn't getting into the same positions as he was last year. A lot of his shots seem to have come from outside the box and he isn't making those bursting back post runs that he scored from a ton. The stats seems to support this as well. His xG and xA are much lower t...

Re: Goodbye, Sebastien Haller

Opinions eh. Each to their own mate. There's opinions and facts. Haller during his time at West Ham had more pressures in a season and a half than Antonio has had in the last 3.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Dinamo Zagreb: match thread

A disjointed side that lacked familiarity and it really showed against a well drilled side that were happy to flood their own penalty box and defend a lead. Now we know what it feels like to be on the other end of it!

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

And playing the majority of it, especially the parts where we were good, in a back five. Which, as far as I'm concerned and it would seem the manager too, is not ideal. The biggest problem when we've played in a back five (in my view) has been that Antonio ends up completely by himself and there's ...

Is it really that much weaker? We just beat the European champions! Having Cresswell back will make a massive difference.
Yes, with a naturally left sided CB in the defence (Diop).

Wolves and Brighton were incredibly poor.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

It's been noticeable that our left side is much weaker without a natural left sided CB in the team. Zouma lacks the confidence and instinct to play the ball out from there and because of that it has stifled any counters that might develop and any attacks building. This has been a huge problem, becau...

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

This is going to be one of those games with both teams on the edge.

If Brighton **** up their press, we are going to get golden chances. If they get their combinations right then we will struggle to continually contain them.

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

We are so much better going forwards when we have Coufal joining attacks.

I love Johnson, he has a huge future ahead of him, but Coufal is so much better going forwards.

Re: ⚽ Manchester City vs West Ham Utd: match thread

I don't get, after beating Liverpool playing 4-2-3-1 and imposing our game on one of the best teams in the world, we've changed the system and been absolutely **** in the last two league games. When we played 3 at the back, Masuaku was a legit outlet for us to counter. He's now really poor and we're...

:cry: has anyone worked out the formation yet ?
We started off in a 3-4-3 and they scored and we looked ahit for 15 minutes. Then Mpyes changed it to 4-2-3-1 with Lanzini on the right and Masuaku on the left.

Re: ⚽ Genk vs West Ham Utd: match thread

Change back to our normal 4 2 3 1 formation stabilised things a bit, but we normally play with inverted wingers, and we aren't with masuaku on the left and lanzini on the right.

He's currently scoring a goal every 3 games and getting an assist every 3 games. That's a pretty ****ing good return tbh.

Johnson is great defensively, but not as good going forwards.

Yarmelenko is perfect for our Europa league games.

Re: Set Pieces

We've created numerous chances, they've just not gone in. Dawson could have had 2 versus Vienna, Ogbonna has had a chance as well.

Soucek being off the boil hasn't helped, and he doesn't seem to be dominating in the air as much as he used to.

We did score from one this weekend though...
