Not a lot of width in that team Libero.

I'd go

Green

Neill Collins Upson Ilunga

Behrami Parker Noble Etherington*

Bellamy Cole.


*The only player who could keep up with Walcott.


Talking of young Theo, if he puts recent experience with England to use, he's likely to shred us down our left. I'm still looking forward to seeing him play at UP.

Yes, my team lacks width, but I think l'Arse need to be controlled in central midfield and anyway Matty is too prone to go AWOL in high intensity games. Walcott will try to shred us on either flank, which is why I wouldn't play Faubert at f***. It will be a real test of Ilunga's defensive qualities and temprement on Sunday. I hope he's up to it

If we hold them to 0-0 at half time we can attack more in the second half. It's a big test of Zola and Clarke too.

We need some pace at the back. With Anton gone who do we have? We will be beaten by one goal, say 2:3

At the risk of sounding negative, are you always this charitable?

No, can't see us getting anything. But then again, I thought we'd do Bolton and Hull, so what do I know? Come on you irons!

[img]Hammers pair set to return
Saturday 25 Oct 2008

West Ham United pair James Collins and Lee Bowyer are set to return from injury in Sunday's London derby with Arsenal.

Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola has revealed that Wales defender Collins is in line to make his first appearance of the season, while Bowyer has recovered from a groin injury dating back to August.

However, England Under-21 midfielder Mark Noble will miss out after damaging his calf in training.

"We have Mark Noble who is going to be out for a few weeks. He just had a tear problem in his calf and that is the bad news," Zola told the club's official website.

"But we have Lee Bowyer coming back from injury and James Collins will be available for the game."

Meanwhile, Zola has revealed that long-term absentee Kieron Dyer is closing in on making his comeback from the double leg break he suffered in August 2007.

"He is not far away but this is the most delicate time," added Zola. "He is progressing very well.

"We are bringing him with us to do the first part of the job that we do (in training) but he still needs a little bit of time.

"He can't really tackle and do things like that. He is doing okay and we are really pleased." [/img]

"This is the most delicate time" Always worrying.

"He cant really tackle and do things like that." That's fine Franco he never could.

I'd go for a cheeky 1-1. Behrami to get his first goal for us.
