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

Some positives for me from tonight, I'll leave the negatives to others. We really do have a top keeper. Our centre backs looked pretty decent and are forming a good partnership. Lanzini showed some real quality. Rice had a very good second half. Haller worked his nuts off. Fornals looked up for it a...

Re: Josh Cullen

Good to see he is getting some recognition, he's a decent player. But he is in the last year of his contract with us now I believe and Pellegrini seems to have looked at him a fair bit in a couple of pre-seasons. So I would expect him to move on to someone like Charlton permanently and make a pretty...

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

There are very few clubs that would not sell a player of Rice's level for £90M, and we are not one of them. It's a ridiculous fee, in a ridiculous market, for a player of his age, experience and ability. If a genuine offer was made of that sort of figure then the club would be unlikely to refuse it,...

Re: Javier Hernandez Signs

I doubt we will miss him. a risk but 10m and getting 140k a week of wages off the bill makes it the sensible thing to do. also he is 31 now and will be declining . at last we have a young squad apart from noble who has another season in him, sanchez ,zabaleta and Snodgrass. the last 3 will all leav...

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. Anderso...

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

Antonio has no technique but he has pace, power and is good in the air. Snodgrass offers nothing. Nothing ? Righto... for starters he can deliver an excellent cross/corner and has a decent touch. His work rate is good too. Antonio has no football brain and as you mention, no technique, but yes he d...

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

My problem with Snodgrass is simpler than that. He's a trier but not a very good footballer. In yesteryear he'd start every game but now we have genuine quality so he shouldn't be near the starting line up. Same can be said of others, e.g. Antonio. Both however are reasonable options from the bench...

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

There's also another interesting element to the Cresswell debate, when many consider him to be such dogshit, yet Pellegrini continually selects him as the Team Captain in Nobles absence, let alone starting him. He's not doing that out of the kindness of his heart, but for good reason because he tru...

Re: VAR

I've flip-flopped on the issue. Positive for it when looking back to the last Boleyn season for example (as it feels like it would have made a good season great with the number of calls that went against us), and negative against it when seeing it employed in other games. Just too picky . But it's ...

Re: Is there space at The London stadium for a museum?

Sadly, the people who run our club don't give a **** about our hisory or heritage unless there's a quid in it for them. We had a museum at Upton Park and they sold off lots of our memorablia in the move. They sold things that didn't technically belong to them either. History began when we moved to ...

Watched the game on Saturday on TV and when a VAR based decision was pending, you had the freeze frame image of an offside or not decision as part of the coverage but in the stadium you did not. For the penalty you have the replays as part of that VAR process but again those in the stadium are left...

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

I thought Wilshere was excellent in there for 45 minutes. And I think we looked at our worse after he went off when we put in a more physical and disruptive player in there (Snodgrass). All four defenders played pretty poorly. I also think we tired and couldn’t find any extra because of how they we...

Re: Albian Ajeti...Welcome to The Hammers.

Never heard of the guy (like most of our signings this window) but he looks to be a very good prospect. His track record in the Swiss league looks good and from a few clips on YouTube he looks a pretty decent finisher. Excellent, and needed, back up to Haller and for now a good option from the bench...

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

You can improve defensively without changing the defenders. Wilshere, Fornals and Lanzini improve ball retention, the ball will stick to Haller who will give their defenders something to think about. Plus Fredericks' pace will help st the back. No doubt we'll lose but to say we haven't improved bec...
