Re: Arthur Masuaku

It's a bit like Antonio last season. He's got strength and a couple of tricks that gets him past players. Defenders will get wise to that so he needs to adapt and there are signs that he's doing that. An odd player so I can't see him getting much better, but a mid-table team like us he adds some pos...

I must be a miserable sod but I actually don't think I would prefer a cup win with relegation - and anyway - not going to happen!!

I'm a big fan but I agree. It's a bit of a mystery why they are so poor, needs to work much harder on that.

Re: Manuel Lanzini

Clearly he would do much better in a team that could give him better passes and make better runs with players who have the technique to receive and play on passes for him. At the moment he is picking up the ball in poor situations, having to fend off pressing opponents who know he is our only creati...

Re: Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham Utd match thread

I would start with Hernandez , and bring carrol to wreak havoc for last Half hour i also like idea of Noble and Rice in Midfild and Kouyate in defence to replace Cresswell. I am hoping Zabaleta can do 2 matches in 3 days ! I agree. Rice deserves to start ahead of Kouyate and Andy must be exhausted....

Re: West Ham Utd v West Bromwich Albion: match thread

Nobes on is sensible but hardly game-changing is it? Moyes is still hoping to nick it instead of go for it.

Re: West Ham Utd v West Bromwich Albion: match thread

Why can't Moyes see that Carroll is at best an impact sub? We are making it easy for Albion. Clearly the only players who are worrying them are Arnie (left to feed on scraps) and Lanzini. Bring on Ayew and Chicharito for Carroll and Arthur/Zab/Reid.

Re: Arsenal v West Ham Utd: match thread

I thought Quina and Rice showed potential. But I wish we had a team that could pass. Happy to get rid of Reid, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell on that basis. I like Ayew but likewise, he can't find a pass. Ditto Andy who is from another age. This team needs a complete rebuild. Not over-reacting to a mea...

Re: Michail Antonio

So he has gone from the fittest looking player last year to the one who needs the longest time to get fit this. No, there has got to be more to it. It's a weird one. I agree it's not just fitness. His decision-making has got a lot worse. He was always a bit of a bulldozer and perhaps defenders have...

Re: Adrián San Miguel del Castillo

I don't know if it's got anything to do with Moyes or the coaching staff but he's come back a better keeper. His kicking is more directed, his saves are very confident pushing the ball well away, and he's coming out and dealing with the ball without any of the previous clowning around. His handling ...

Re: Aaron Cresswell signs.

Somehow Moyes has turned him into a decent defender. Didn't get forward yesterday but that was one of his better/best performances for us. Looks like he knows what he's supposed to do at last.

Rumour doing the rounds that as well as Luiz & Drinkwater , Morata has also picked up a knock , just need Hazard to drop a glass on his foot and we might get a draw , 18th century football and park the bus 0-0 Whoever they put out will be quality. Obviously, Hazard worries me most. He will occupy t...

Re: Everton -v West Ham United - Match Thread

Looking forward to this. Not sure why exactly. It could be very tense, defensive and dull. Everton can't be as bad as they've played this season and with Sam on the horizon they will surely buck up their workrate? I'm hoping we are starting to get the basic things right, but have yet to see us look ...

Re: Arthur Masuaku

His directive should be: Carry the ball forward as far as you can while retaining possession. Then play it back to Cresswell who should cross the thing, not put a foot on it and play it farther backwards. This is so true. What happened to Cresswell of a couple seasons back who got forward and put i...

Re: Everton -v West Ham United - Match Thread

I'd give Lanzini a rest - not exactly set the world alight recently has he... and I'd get Antonio in if he's fit.. You've got to play your best players. His main problem at the moment is how to deal with a team led up front by a striker who works best on the end of crosses, not through balls. Almos...
