Moyes will get into them at half time, and hopefully make a change or two. If Kral can’t improve today’s midfield we should send him back ASAP

He has to take Coufal off, he can’t play like that an get away it. Johnson on the bench, Coufal & Dawson are the worse culprits for giving the ball away.

Getting proper Breen and Dailly flashbacks with these two clowns at the back today. Jesus wept. We cant keep needing to score at least 3 goals to win ffs.

I'd be putting Kral on. We have no control over the middle of midfield.

Our defence is embarrassing.

We should still be winning this game, we've got goals in us.

We've been spoiled recently, let's enjoy a classic West Ham defensive performance :scarfer:

(Fair to say we could do more from open play!)

Kral is not the answer here
Then when is he? What is the point of him?

Something seems disconnected with Vlasic and Bowen seeing little if the ball. Maybe full backs not pushing up ifae enough, Rice being a bit selfish and not playing them in, Lanzini not pulling the strings when we are in possession? Hopefully the coaches can fix it
Leeds midfield are not allowing Coufal/Cresswell to push up so that cuts out half of our chances.

Missing Souchek big time.
Lanzini and fornals technically good but physically lightweights. Kral should have started.
If he can’t be trusted to deputise for Souchek or even Noble them what is the point of him being here ?
Moyes needs to make a change at HT not wait until 75th minutes and then stick bloody Masuaku on.
Sorry but Moyes has messed up so far today.

But leaving massive holes behind him. Lanzini is not capable of holding the fort like Tommy.
Yep, missing Tommy badly.

Fredericks for Coufal might be an idea as well, some pace running at them.

They don't look any more "leggy" than normal imo; they are naturally short of pace.

I'd expect a double substitution - probably involving two of Vlasic, Lanzini and Fornals. The full backs last week were much better.

We look ragged, indisciplined, unbalanced, vulnerable and bereft of composure.

We literally have no one on the bench to change it. You just know Yarmolenko is going to have a 15 minute cameo at the end.

Not the game for Lanzini this one. We need runners in that midfield partly due to those two at the back being all over the place.

Vlasic central fornals out left, get bodies round Antonio.

Take Manu off and Kral on I'd also take Vlad off for Ben he's been very lackluster.

How has Moyes messed up? If Kral isn't good enough he isn't good enough and we're just unlucky to have Soucek and Noble out.

This is the starting 11 that beat Norwich fairly easily, but for the defence forgetting what a football is we wouldn't be losing.

Not great defensively here and naff all on the bench to do anything about it.

Feels like we need Dec to sit because of the counter, but he’s also beating men going forward.

Fornals has picked some lovely passes. Not sure we’ve seen enough of Bowen on the wing, and he’s lost the ball poorly on a few occasions

I think Fredericks might be the one to come on for Coufal. His pace could make a difference run at Leeds makeshift left back. We should also test Koch on a yellow. Dean loves to send someone off. I just pray it’s not one of ours.
