This, when did we start not giving players chance to settle. Probably the biggest game of his career so far

think I'll give it five more minutes or so but it keeps going to site unable to load. same as last week with the Villa game.

gave up during the game and up until about 10 minutes after.

shame.

Before the goal was thinking that was the most boring 135 minutes I've seen us play. (not the worst mind you)

Fornals has just moved to a new country, he is young, playing at a faster pace, more physical gameplay. He has to be given a chance to adapt. I still maintain that the boy is mustard and going to come good, to the point he will be one of our best players. I have absolute faith in his abilty. You can quote me in 12 months time. The only issue I see is who do you drop to fit him in?

Off we go again. No changes to either side, as far as I can see.

p.s. the site is a slow as treacle for me today and there isn't a lot of folks on here relatively speaking.
It's the new matchday experience.
Probably caused by everyone hammering th eserver, refreshing to get UtJ's latest top drawer commentary update.

Mata cynically trips Declan Rice. And is shown a yellow card for his troubles.

Close. Pereira delivers and Mata leaves Fredericks standing at the far post but can't get a decent connection. Lucky West Ham.

At the other end Yarmolenko cuts inside and shoots, but a tackle removes any threat from the effort.

Ogbonna is on the deck after running into an advancing James. He receives treatment but is thankfully back on his feet.

Thought Mata was sure to score then. That's the wake up call.

Think that Mata chance was miles harder than it looked, was whipped in with absolute pace

James centres but Fabianski gets there before Andreas. West Ham could do with getting a foot on the ball for a minute or two.

Whilst his flick to set up the goal was lovely, there has been some proper wasteful passes from Anderson today.

Nice balance of pundits there. Neville, Mourinho and Keane up against West Ham legend Graeme Souness. Nice one Sky. :thup:

Fredericks' cross hits the upper arm of Young but just a corner is given. Fornals centres and it's cleared.
