⚽ West Ham United v Leicester City: Match thread (28/12)

Post by Samba » Thu Dec 26, 2019 11:44 pm

Hmm, I've got a feeling that everyone else is probably too pissed or depressed, to start the thread off, so here goes..

Saturday 28th December
K/O 5:30pm

Because of the later kick off, we could well be in the bottom 3, before we even start our last game of 2019.
It ain't gonna be easy but, 'UP THE 'AMMERS!'

They’ve been dealt a reality check by the two best teams in the country over their last couple of games. What a time to take it out on us.

The Fly was on the other week.

Westfield busy with the sales ?

I have no faith in Pellegrini. He brought Haller off then brought Ajeti on????????
Watched Leicester tonight against Liverpool and they got it completely wrong trying to play out from the back. Suicidal against a rampant Liverpool.
Their midfield is strong and fast but if we set up correctly we can get a result.
We need to play 3 at the back. Bring the wing backs slightly inside to compress the space in the middle. Have Antonio up with Anderson because they can break together , then play 3 in midfield , in Fornals, Lanzini and Rice. As long as he wing backs slightly push in we can play these 3 in the middle.
It wont happen, Pellegrini will play the same players with the same system and Leicester will breeze past the Dinosaurs in the middle and nick a 0-3 win.

I wonder if its because Leicester were the late kick off tonight, so to give them so many hours before their next game?

Rice and Diop is actually a great shout mate. At least Diop would be a strong presence and put himself about in there. Look how balanced that formation is when we can put a strong young player alongside Rice.

Vardy generally plays off the left hand side. Fredericks should be able to match his pace, so pellers will probably pick Zab instead! Leicester got soundly beaten by the league's two best sides, chillwell looking like he plays for west ham in both games. Changes will be needed for this game, Yarmo in for Snodgrass. If it's true that cresswell is suspended, then I would definitely start Anderson if Massuaku is playing, as they do link fairly well

On the way to me job. Angry about the loss yesterday. Leicester concerned, I really thought they would get a draw against Liverpool last night, but they got hammered. Rightfully so. I also believed that we would win against Leicester but two things now scares me. 1: Are Leicester now ready for vengeance? 2: Will Roberto be in goal (I know it wasnt his fault)?

I remember Rodgers saying that Vardy wouldn't physically be able to start all the games over the Christmas period. Maybe he'll be on the bench for this one? This is major straw-clutching, I admit.

:crest: Said it on other threads yesterday and I still believe we will get at least a point from this
Unfortunately I can't make the game as I think it will be a high scoring one

We do need to stiffen the midfield a bit so Sanchez has to play

Cheers :thup:

Beat Leicester and then we'll lose to Bournemouth, worth a £1 bet
