what does jack sullivan do nowadays ?
We don't need leaks, Moyes only changes the starting xi for injuries and suspensions.

Still no ticket exchange open about time season ticket holders could put seat up it's ridiculous have to wait until the last seat row 73 is sold until its officially sold out

Surely Sullivan is too busy having his kids inheritance shagged out of him, by his new, younger bird, to care about West Ham..

This video makes it look like this morning might have been Zouma's first day back. I reckon he might be on the bench to get a few minutes on Sunday but can't see him starting.

I'd like to keep Vlasic in the team as he seems to be finding his feet (even if he's also losing his footing from time to time :coolas: )

Not sure if that means Soucek or Fornals making way.

more worried about soucek being alongside rice. this will be a tough match and we need to be strong in the middle.
midfield 3 of rice soucek and lanzini
front 3 of bowen antonio fornals/vlasic.

zouma on the bench, give him the last 20 mins

decision to be made between vlasic and fornals

start well and we win this .

also lets hope the crowd are up for it more than last time in the cup. if the crowd are up then the team will raise their standards and we should have too much for leeds

I’d also like to see Vlasic starting in this one. I think he’s done enough over the last few weeks to warrant his place. A great headache for Moyes to have, though.

Not been asked for anything at either game this week. Obviously have the pass on your phone just in case but don't expect to have to get their earlier than usual because of extra checks.

If Soucek is back, then he starts over Fornals for me. Wouldn’t drop Vlasic as he’s just starting to find a bit of form.

Fornals is actually a fairly prolific tackler.

Especially in the opposition third, I think he could easily adapt his game to tackle more in the middle third.
indeed. I was surprised that we went with Lanzini deeper and Fornals in 10 role v Norwich. Maybe swap them over...

Short answer is that, yes, if you are unlucky a few random people get pulled up walking towards the security check-in.

However I had an odd experience on Wednesday whilst I was queueing at the turnstile - i.e. after security checks etc.

Someone in a h-viz came up to me demanding to see some identification. I said here's my ticket (printed out) with my name on it.

He said "no that's no good, haven't you got something else? We need ID. What about a Covid pass?"

As it happens I had a printed Covid pass, but he wasn't actually asking to see that specifically, he was asking for some ID from me. Was he attempting to cross-check the name on the ticket with the bearer?

Anyway, he got distracted and moved on to someone else but it was all a bit odd - or not, given the Club's previous.
