West Ham Utd 3-1 Fulham (22/02/19)

Post by Up the Junction » Sun Feb 10, 2019 1:03 am

22/2 for 2-0?

The kind of game in which an early goal (to settle the nerves and the crowd) never hurts.

Arnie will start and in the first 5 minutes we will know if he will rip their jugulars out or disappear into a puff of narcissistic smoke.

3:0, Arnautovic (3) (red)

I fully expect us to get back to winning ways, with this one.
Poor old Fulham desperately need some points but I don't see them getting any, on this occasion.
No idea the score.
My ambition for us this season, has now just come down to us getting into +gd!
Little things...

Hmmm. A team in real trouble, desperately needing a win. Who's up next ? Why it's West Ham ! They're always pretty generous to teams in a predicament ! :P

Their defence is porous. We do seem to be able to find a way through the teams at the bottom. I think we’ll win this one.

A real test for us as they will fight hard in this one. if we have the right attitude then we should win it if not we will frop points.

a bit of rest for our lot so hopefully see this team

fab
fredericks diop ogbonna cresswell

subs adrian zab masuaka nasri diagana hernandez carroll


maybe lanzini will make the bench but I hope we dont rush him. After this one we have city away so we need the 3 points!

Great, 4 of our next 5 games are against 4 of the bottom 5.

Please don't turn up in a Wimbledon frame of mind.

I don't like the look of this match; it is practically a cup final for them because, if they lose (heavily), they simply will not get out of the mess that they are in.

Having said that, there is a good reason for why they are in that mess...

We've just got to hope that our lot approach it in the right way. I would keep Fredericks in the team (I was a little confused as to why he got subbed yesterday, really). Obviously, Cresswell is the other FB and should remain so, barring injury or suspension. The rest of the defence is picking itself, as is Rice. Mike and Felipe are, again, irreplaceable.

Hope Nasri can be recalled, personally, because I think Mark and Snod showed their age a bit yesterday. Decent enough starts to the game, but running on empty for some time before the final whistle....

They can't defend, so if we have a day where we do it reasonably competently we will win and by a handsome margin.

We really should be looking for at least 10 points from Fulham, Newcastle, Cardiff and Huddersfield.

Flat track bullies and whatever the opposite if that is (bumpy track bullies?) with more points against the big 6 than everyone except wolves. It’s the middle tracks we struggle with...

Nailed on 3 points in the bag. Next?

On a serious level I do think we will win but I would never be too cocky as this is West Ham we are talking about. If 3 of our 'better players' turn up i.e Anderson, Rice and Diop for example then I think we should get over the line without too much difficulty.

Read something this morning that there's a chance Balbuena is back for this. Also Nasri and Lanzini will be back too. We really should win this game comfortably, they are a really poor team.

It is on the telly, the wonderful and not at all annoying Sky sports.

Edit: oops, beaten to it!

Should be a comfortable win, annoying thing is Schrulie and Babel have their odd moment every so often when they display their talent, hopefully both go missing.
