saw him against renne think it may have been last week on tv you wouldn't know if he was a rb or a winger looked pretty quick.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 11:13:05
Thought we already had Fredericks for thatposion, not exactly a slouch, but don’t know how accomplished he is otherwise as not seen much of him, surely a midfielder would have been more on the scouting priority?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 16:17:16
We don’t think like the powers that be, if that was the case we should be looking at Mdfs as you say but they are looking all round Morata is an example, do we need another Forward well maybe Antonio and Hernandez look likely for the chop, so scouting continues IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 17:52:46
Yes that makes sense, don’t think of that situation unless we get the info from you Mike👍 if the powers as you call them are thinking of getting rid of Antonio and Hernandez. I will be sorry to see Antonio go if that’s the case, lack of finesse yes, but a powerful grafter which I always like, Hernandez, well has he even got his shorts dirty when he’s been on the pitch?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2018 08:45:17
I really have conflicting views about Hernandez. On the one hand his career stats are undeniably outstanding (right place at the right time), on the other he rarely seems to influence a game, especially when he starts.
It could be that Man U had it spot on: he starts on the bench and comes on for the final 25mins, to pop in a goal v a tiring defence.
That does, of course, make him a very expensive super-sub bearing in mind his mega wages.
I don’t think I would be particularly upset if he moved on.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2018 09:40:38
We look more organised and solid with 3 man midfield using Noble, Rice and obiang. I'd like to see us upgrade on Noble but I do wonder what's going to happen when Wilshire is fit again because its clearly not working with him in midfield.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Sep 2018 11:07:59
Hi merci I think WILSHIRE position is an attacking mid or top of a diamond.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2018 11:41:06
i'd play a midfield 3, with wilshere at the front - rice and obiang sitting behind him.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Sep 2018 17:20:33
Lanzini (let's hope he gets back to it) is our Noble upgrade.

We need proper competition for Obiang and Rice, which I'm struggling to be convinced Carlos Sanchez is.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well deserved win no question perhaps I. Was Wrong perhaps we are all wrong HOWEVER one swallow doth not a summer make keep cool, Rice Arnie Anderson Fabianski all excellent Antonio to me doesn't look the player he was, and Sanchez not for me Decent performances Diop and Balbuena Noble done his job as did OBIANG a;d Zabletta, I don't know. Frankly what Masuaku instructions are he's certainly not a defender PEREZ what's this about refusing to come on? IRONMIKE.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

16 Sep 2018 18:23:59
Mike, Sanchez makes me really nervous, he very nearly cocked up again, if Perez doesn’t want to play in a SQUAD, then drop him for Silva, another thing I noticed was Antonio running to the corner to run the clock down, lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2018 18:26:04
Perez was warming up and finished his warm up when ARNAUTOVIC got a knock ANTONIO was doing his at that time so he came on instead so MP said so no problems with LUCAS believe that is questionable.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2018 18:53:38
Me too Perez looks like it’s being washed over, , Still I had almost fi4gotten what it’s loke to win IRONMIKE.

{Ed001's Note - from what I could lip read when they showed Perez, he was upset at being passed over for Antonio, rather than refusing to come on or warm up. He just stopped warming up and flopped onto the bench for a sulk by the looks of it. Xavi Valero was not giving him a bollocking like he had refused, he was defo talking to him like Perez was upset and needed to be calmed down. I don't think it is being brushed under the carpet so much as the media making a mountain out of a molehill.}

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Sep 2018 19:16:50
As you can see by the typing I’ve had a few to celebrate! IRONMIKE is.

17 Sep 2018 10:24:53
Well said ED we all got it wrong me as well I didn’t see that performance coming but playing twohding midfielders worked I’d still play WILSHIRE instead of NOBLE in that position in front of the two holders as I have always thought Wilshire could play as an attacking mid when fit you ed.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Sep 2018 16:27:38
Whorya, sorry mate, Noble ran his socks off, Wilshere ain’t got a 10 yards in him, f——— lazy b———, and Noble can give him a few years and has played more games than Wilshere is ever likely to! Apologies mate but I cannot stand that overrated player, Wilshere can’t clean Nobles boots for dedication and leadership, I’d have anybody in place of Wilshere! Trouble is he’s never f——— fit, also why change a winning team unless of injury, we’ve played rubbish for 4 games, then played brilliantly, Noble had a blinder. Sorry again mate but we all see it different.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Sep 2018 23:24:54
Certainly looked more solid in midfield with 3 there and no Wilshire. Hope I’m wrong and he gets back and shows the ability we know he has shown in the past but right now I think we need stronger players in midfield and today I think we had that. As for Pérez not sure what the right story is but if he was just upset he was passed over then that shows he is passionate and wanting to play. No problem with that.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Sep 2018 22:16:25
It was only last year Wilshire scores two screamers for ENGLAND I know NOBLE hasn’t got that in his locker I’ll tell you the problem with Wilshire he moved to us thought because all his family are hammers and he be the next big thing at west ham and he thought he’d walk in and breeze it without trying too hard exactly like our best player ARNAUTOVIC exactly the same he was useless in his first 6-7 games then realised you have to put effort in WILSHIRES quality has never been in question for me Chelms I think it’s personal with your resentment for Jack I have a few GUNNERSas friends who are proper football nuts and they told me that when he puts it all in he’s as good as any C/ M they’ve had at Arsenal now that’s a big statement but they were serious and NOBLE looked good because the team looked good look a couple of times GUEYE had the ball outside the box with noble marking he done a bit of quick footwork and a couple of quick turns and noble was about 3 yards from him and he got a shot away and GUEYE ain’t a wizard in midfield more a holding mid he played ok Noble but against better opposition he gets well and truly done and therein is the problem leaving the back four isolated we have to stick now with two holding mids in OBIANG AND RICE and the furthest forward midfielder between NOBLE and JACK then I’m sorry JACK can beat a player NOBLE can’t and I think WILSHIRE in that position would flourish but it’s all about opinions mate and you’ve got yours and that’s mine. COYI.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 12:13:29
Whorya, I come in peace🙏🏳️ Just tend to get very opinionated on subjects that get to me as you obviously do, I think we are both likeminded in our opinions and are both passionate Hammers, i want to shake your hand mate but obviously can’t👍😁 I’ll try hard to look at Wilshere’s plusses, in future👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 14:45:14
Whorya, I still come in peace talks regarding Wilshere😂🙏 But i thought your stat about Wilshere’s 2 screamers last year was rather out regarding last year. I have checked on Wikipedia stats for Wilshere on England, those goals were in a Euro qualifier in Slovenia in 2016 and were his first and only goals on his 28th International appearance, according to the stats I have seen on Google? He is still living off them!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2018 09:02:27
stevie66 I saw Antonio running to the corner and hold it up haha make me chuckle as I wasn't sure if he had leant his lesson and cross it in I was was holding my breath had me alittle nervous lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2018 13:01:46
There. Are still a few sites issuing facts and predicted teams this should 100% stop and the fools doing this are announcing our problems injuries and likely formation for the forthcoming opponents to use I completely fail to understand why they continue to do this it is NOT in our teams interest STOP doing it I could do it at any time and have consistently refused to do so as you all know and I will keep it that way I have never seen the sense of giving this information away. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - It is harmless enough and fans of plenty of clubs go and watch training sessions and then come up with predicted teams. Other clubs pay no heed and have no interest in these. Injuries to key players which the clubs openly discuss anyway) might be of interest to other sides but that is it. It certainly does no harm and is not the excuse for West Ham being where they are.}

Well we can’t agree. On everything and I don’t blame anything on our shoddy form it’s just something I personally don’t agree with IRONMIKE.

16 Sep 2018 18:28:16
I thought RICE was outstanding and DIOP but a great professional performance from the boys I didn’t think RICE could play there how wrong I was but against LIVERPOOL with their front players can look anybody look average.

Noooooo! . still we got 4 games out of him more than I expected for the season.

14 Sep 2018 18:24:55
Warrington, What an effing waste of money it looks like Wilshere will turn out to be, oh another ankle injury, never mind Jack you’ve been given a 3 year health insurance for an annual payout of about £3m a year so no worries there😂 At least he won’t be missed as he’s done f—- all anyway👎What a shame for the likes of say Fernandez and others that have gone, bloody disgraceful management. We leak more money than some of these Water Companies pipes!

06 Sep 2018 10:32:11
SQUAD of 23, In my own mind these two places have been cleared for January, We have a few who we could remove as well and I don't think anybody would even notice Them missing Antonio and Chicharito amongst them. IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Sep 2018 12:22:06
Agreed Mike. Antonio and Hernandez look shadows of former selves. Cresswell ain't much better as is Noble. Too much rubbish remaining. Every window we say it and this was no different. Glaring gaps and requirements which were not filled at CDM until last minute panic for Sanchez and full back where we were linked with a few full backs. I'd sell Antonio, Hernandez and Noble for the best deal I can get and use the money to start plugging holes with quality starting with two decent full backs and CDM.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2018 13:02:45
These players will go eventually and probably for peanuts that’s the way we trade. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2018 19:29:01
Zero point in selling Noble.

He's worth more to the squad than we'd get in fee and loves the club.

Frankly in showing I'd currently have him in the side over Wilshere. At least you know it matters to him.

All Antonio has lost from his game is his willingness and desire to prove himself. and Payet sticking balls in his head at the back post. We need to get rid, although he still poses more actual threat than Snodgrass or Chicharito.

Chicharito is just a mistake. There's a reason he's been a super sub his whole career. he just offers too little outside the box and we're not close to good enough to play with ten men.

My big concern is Arnie. Our ponderous build up has negated his pace and power where we utilised it perfectly last year by hitting him early!

Yarmalenko and Perez. way way too early to judge, as it is with Anderson. The defence looks like it's starting to shape up, and we need to find a midfield with what we have that can work for us.

Id go with Sanchez, Rice and Noble currently. Wilshere is presently a luxury we can't afford. Then Arnie, Anderson and Yarmalenko upfront.

We need to hold our nerve though. looked better on the counter vs Arsenal than trying to control the ball and game vs Wolves. Maybe these next few games we can get something. only the Chelsea game really worries me.

We still have it in us.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2018 07:23:50
Stubbo, agree with your comments about keeping Noble, then your comments on Hernandez, Wilshere, both very expensive misfits that I have never understood fans on here rating, but we all see it differently! I still like Antonio and would hate to see him ego, he is a runner and trier, more than can be said of the other 2 lazy money grabbing misfits! But I am only an armchair fan now, so don’t see what goes on for 90 minutes! We need battlers and warriors, not players puffing and blowing standing still hands on hips. As Sean Dych Says, minimum requirement MAXIMUM EFFORT!

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2018 11:19:54
Agree with Stubbo on Noble, no point selling. Manager needs to understand that we do not have a midfield pair capable enough in all areas to start a match with just two in there, we need 3 against these PL teams. And if Noble ever plays he needs to ensure significant cover is there for his lack of pace, one of Rice or Sanchez must be present at all times.
I do like Jack however, like Chelms says we all see things differently, but I agree he has not set the place alight so far. I think he transitions our game very well from defence into attack with his skill on the ball in the middle, but he has lacked a killer ball for years as shown by his lack of assists. Maybe its gone, only time will tell. Someone likened him to the Pirlo role, but when did you ever see Pirlo playing in a midfield of 2? MP must see this. Its ok to go 2 in the middle later in the game if pushing for a needed goal, but we need to start games confidently and less exposed.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2018 11:27:56
Its interesting and significant that the your comments above revolve around the midfield. Arnie and even Hernandez can score goals with the right support and I still think defensively given a bit of time to get to know each other Fredericks, Cresswell, Diop and Balbuena will do OK, but who to play in midfield.

Without Noble we don't seem to have a leader who can get the team working hard so although I don't think he is perfect he is more important than Wiltshire.


We have known for seasons we need defensive midfielders who are fast aggressive and can run all day. Well we don't have any of them so have to make do with 2 out of Sanchez, Rice, Obiang


We have to hope Anderson replaces Lanzini and I still like Antonio cause he can score goals from midfield.


Would be nice to see this team click soon.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2018 12:53:22
Maybe we should have gotten Bielsa when we had the chance!

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Sep 2018 20:28:43
Don't think there would be many takers for noble and if there was he would have to take a massive drop in wages to get a move to a Cardiff Huddersfield AFC Bournemouth.

04 Sep 2018 10:56:18
Let me tell you why this debacle has happened Sullivan was sick and tired of being the fall guy for all that WH don't achieve so he cunjured up a plan to get WH from nobodies to somebodies in a season get in a big name manager and splash out a few million quid, it will do the job he will be heralded as a mastermind who. Came up with a master stroke, uhhh Uhhh that isn't possible for anybody, it has to be done in stages built up over time, so now he has a massive dilemma on his hands and I'm sure behind the scenes he's taking. Advise right now. IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

04 Sep 2018 11:28:12
Goodness me, if that is actually the way his brain was working that is very worrying and shows he does not know anything how to actually build a club,

What is even more worrying he was willing to spend the clubs funds ( yes I know its his to spend) and take this massive financial gamble which as it may have shown has back fired for self praise and glorification and to put the clubs future investments at risk.

To be fair to him he must have been totally convinced that MP was the man to take such a risk,

Poor old King David all he wants is to be loved and hailed as the chosen one!

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Sep 2018 12:31:46
Yes that’s about it he didn’t want to take any more flak, but wanted to be heralded as the chosen one I’m afraid there Are no short routes to success and as a businessman with a lot of acumen it’s really surprising this route was picked IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2018 13:23:46
Think it’s very easy to be critical when we are not the one managing £millions and taking brutal criticism when you have invested heavily, nobody intends to fail or make the wrong decision! I do think however it would however been more prudent to look for a younger manager, why do managers or players go to China, bounty hunting££ they want to make as much as possible then f—- off, they have come to the end of managing or playing at the top flight then want an easy ride, to me that shows lack of ambition so, MP has seen and done it, so we should have steered clear, but it’s all easy with hindsight!

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Sep 2018 15:17:04
Why didn't they ask the supporters who we wanted and then nobody could complain but that wouldn't happen because SULLIVAN is a control freak and now he's the one got to clear up this mess because if asked I quarantee you MP wouldn't have been in the top 10 picks by supporters I know it doesn't work like that but just a suggestion which I think would work. COYI.

04 Sep 2018 15:57:37
Whorya, can you imagine what a farce that would be supporters voting, another Brexit! Who would agree with who we got, you can’t have 50,000 managers! It’s not who we want it’s who is available and wants to manage us! We hardly have a reputation for being tolerant supporters We all know who we might want, if I had to nominate 3, I would have said Eddie Howe, Chris Hughton or Sean Dyche but why the f—- would any want to come and dive into a sea of sharks!

You've took it wrongly chelms don't always take pointo on face value it was merely saying ask the main sup porters who they think not take 50,000 views I like your sarcasm but who do you think should be manager mine is EDDIE HOWE who I've said from the BIG SAM ERA he should our manager and stick by it. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2018 10:34:01
The last few paragraphs was what you should have read properly merely stating MP wouldn't have been in many people's picks probably 49,999 said no thanks.

05 Sep 2018 15:18:01
Completely agree with Worya on Eddie Howe, however he was not available so not worth thinking about. I don't see what would ever be in it for him, Bmouth are a not short on cash and he loves them having played for them for years. (I live in Bmth so spend a lot of time with their fans)
Whoever we got, we all have to understand how BIG a job it is to turn us around in a year. MP inherited teams at RM and MC that were already 85-90% of the way there, he just had to galvanise and slightly change their game to suit his tactics. With us he has to completely reverse everything! Tactics, style, technical, mental, confidence etc etc A much bigger task. I hope we stick with him and the players start performing, but it is nervous times for us, and i certainly wouldn't want to be in DGS position at this stage pondering on whether to stick or twist.
MIKE, i think you are being unfair on DS IMO. He did cock up a lot before, but i do not think he has been reckless or tried to be a hero. He has simply done what the fans asked and protested for. Took a step back, gave a proven manager who plays our way the keys and backed him. Not heard much from them even during this tough spell. that's an improvement in my eyes and just because MP's team has not worked YET, does not mean we blame DSG. Often good decisions do not work out, the MP decision still has time to come to fruition.
For the record, my dream manger choice would have gone like this:
Pep G
Jurgen Klopp
Eddie Howe
Rafa Benitez
Sarri
None were available though.

03 Sep 2018 14:19:27
Mike or Ed 002, in your knowledge of wisdow what would be looking at in getting rid of MP and the rest of his entourage, could we be looking at 30m plus?
