I know tomorrow is a big game for us and for the lads to show us what they are really made of and I believe it's a massive game for Billic and I hope we put in a performance for him and I do believe he's the right man for us and if I was going to pick the team tomorrow I would go back to a 4 4 2 diamond though with
GK Hart
RB Byram
CB Zabalata
CB Reid
LB Cresswell
CDM Noble
RM Antonio
LM Masuaku
CAM Arnie
ST Carroll
ST Hernandez
Now I know people have there different thoughts of noble but me I believe in the squad he's the only one willing to put his foot in and if he just does that and keeps in simple then I believe that is where he's beat suited and Masuaku on the LM when he came in against spurs he was direct and ran at the opposition so defiantly believe he would be stronger there and plus he is a LB so will know to help out are LB and same with Antonio on the other side he is direct he scares the opposition given that he's fit and play if course and that is what we need 2 pacey wingers who scare the opposition and I believe they would and with Arnie behind the front 2 (until lanzini is match fit of xourse) he is a great addition and can spot a pass and with Hernandez runs that would be deadly and with Carroll upfront you know he's going to win about 90% if the headers so someone who runs of him and cause problems and also get Carroll and Hernandez In the team together and Zabalata and CB would be great as he knows the game inside out and would be a great teacher for Byram who I am a big fan of to be honest. I know people will have there opinions buy that is what I would start with tomorrow if I'm honest. Anyways let's home for the 3 points and a great performance COYI.

I'd like to see Zab at CB as part of a back 3 - then play Antonio as Right WB and Cresswell left with Kouyate and Obiang as the other midfielders with a front 3 of Lanzini, Arnie and Hernandez.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 12:41:31
Antonio rwb? You forgot last season already his our best attacking player is wasted there.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 13:22:47
I also think Kind Arthur is better than Cresswell


Zab - Reid - Fonte - Ogbonna - Masa

kouyate - Edmilson

Arnie - Lanzini

Then subs

4.) 30 Sep 2017 11:40:56
Edmilson is injured, probably not wise to start with an injured player, just my opinion.

5.) 02 Oct 2017 09:34:12
Antonio was RB last season not RWB - there's a big difference.



23 Jul 2017 23:02:46
He has all I just want to say I know it has as nothing to do with West Ham but been watching the women's Euro and just watched the lioness battle there way to a win against a Spain side who just passed and passed but the most pleasing thing to see was them playing for the shirt and everyone single player digging in to get a result so I just want to say I reckon the men's team should take note and see how much it really means to play for england.

Let's be honest it's a f*****g shambles, I'm a big fan of Bilic it without Carroll the bloke isn't useless, we have a really good team from GK to Strikers and how he can't get them playing as a team is a joke if you ask me and he has to go and I reckon the man we need is sean dyche the thing he does is get his team to be unit a team hard to beat then he builds on that and with the players we have attacking wise he would build a team that's hard to beat and a team that's quick on the arrack with short passing instead of this bulls**t we watched tonight where we were way to slow in the build up play not everyone wanted to do the dirty work and defend and with Sean dyche you will get that.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 22:50:42
No one in that team earns their wages, they
arnt fit to wear OUR shirt, board av given us
So much BS and not delivered! Panic buys
like ayew and Arnie almost 50 million pound
we weren't made to look awful tonight, we simply
are just awful! That club don't deserve its fans .
They can all go and pee off and give us back
OUR club before we get relegated.



20 Oct 2017 15:39:44
Why didn't we go for Wilshire he's a class above and keep him fit and you've got one hell of a player there.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 21:07:08
2-0 down to Brighton at home oh dear.



23 Sep 2017 14:28:48
I know people will be slagging Billic and everyone off but I don't think he deserve it after that game we fell aswell for 5 mins in the 1st half and that cost us part from that I think we battled with them all over the pitch and I'm not being a bitter fan but I do believe the refereeing was awful and the spurs player need to stay on there feet and not fall over like fairies.




13 Sep 2017 05:53:50
Hey all just a question with everyone fully fit what starting 11 would you pick and formation when everyone is back and fully fit and everything?


1.) 13 Sep 2017 07:13:53
Dont know about starting 11 but I would like slav to play chicarito in the middle and not on the left and keyate in defence not middfield and like you happyhammer am concernned about phil . Ed's or ironmike any ideas? Regards bonzo.

2.) 13 Sep 2017 07:37:46
I've been wondering this myself happyhammer.
I'd probably suggest the following in a 352 formation.

GK - Hart

CB - Reid
CB - Collins
CB - Ogbonna

RM- Antonio
LM- Cresswell
DM - Rice
CM - Kouyate
AM - Lanzini

ST - Hernandez
ST - Carroll

However, this doesn't leave room for Arnautovic or Zabaletta. The only way I can see them fitting into the team - which presumably he wants as otherwise why sign them - is in the following 442 formation:

GK - Hart
RB - Zabaletta
CB - Reid
CB - Collins
LB - Cresswell
RM - Antonio
CM - Lanzini
CM - Kouyate
LM - Arnautovic
ST - Hernandez
ST - Carroll.

3.) 13 Sep 2017 09:56:33
I think at the moment we look more solid with the 3 at the back so I'd go with 343

Gk Hart
Cb Reid
Cb Fonte
Cb Ogbonna
Rb Zabaleta
Lb Cresswell
Cm Kouyate
Cm Obiang
Lf Lanzini
Rf Antonio
S. Hernandez.

4.) 14 Sep 2017 06:46:22


Carroll sakho.

5.) 14 Sep 2017 07:25:52
Gk hart
Df fonte
Df reid
Df ogbonna
Rwb zabeleta
Lwb cresswell
Dfm kouyate
Dfm obiang
Am lanzini
Rf antonio
Lf arnautovic
Cf chicharito.

6.) 14 Sep 2017 09:37:11
No Carroll if fit?

Would be in my team every day of the week, if they play Hernandez in middle off Carroll there will be goals galore.

7.) 14 Sep 2017 10:41:52
IF hernandez stays in middle yes to carroll if it means hernandez moving left and being frustrated then no!

8.) 14 Sep 2017 12:30:33
Sorry till I die you appear to be playing a 3 5 3 which one would you drop to the bench.

9.) 14 Sep 2017 13:49:41
Lol I know mercerl
Its meant to be arnautovic/ antonio not both I can't decide.

10.) 14 Sep 2017 15:19:43
Easy has to be Antonio my stoke mate reckons Arnoutovic can never find the net lol.

11.) 14 Sep 2017 23:04:04
I choose antonio my reason for both is i'm guessing the pressure to play arnie because of price tag would be to big.



28 Aug 2017 14:37:14
I personally reckon get rid of billic as he's clueless what to do now and never has a plan b and I would like us to get harry redknapp back with Di canio as his number 2 they both know how passionate us fans are and harry brought through some great players when he was in charge joe cole, carrick ferdy etc and he also got the best out of di canio when know one else would touch him and when he through his toys out the pram he knew how to act towards him and he could get the best out of arnie in that respect and bring in rio for defensive coaching sure that would sort them out.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 16:34:51
Ive been a long time supporter of SB and have come to his defense for quite some time now. But I can finally say it is time for a change. There was no drive in any of the players on Saturday. Nobody wanted to compete out there it was utterly pathetic. Sure players need to hold some accountability but if a manager can not instill a competitiveness in our squad then he has lost the dressing room and we need to move forward.

Still grateful for Slav but its time for a new face and a fresh start/ attitude. We need to bring in some new players but first fix what is wrong with what we currently have. I just want us to make sure we have someone lined up before we let him walk.

I just reckon keep billic and go and buy English players who know the game and they would be
Jordan Pickford great young keeper and is one of Sunderland best players this season along with defoe
Micheal Keane I was excited when fonte signed but he's not where near Reids level in my eyes and Keane is a great young centre back and will improve massively next to Reid
Will Hughes one of if not the best player in the championship I've derby play a few times this season and with him they are such a different team and him playing in a team with lanzini he will once again only improve as a player and I'm sure he would want to show everyone that he is a premiership player and I've been saying this one all year and I will keep saying it Andre Gray given a chance he will find the back of the net and with the player we have behind him now he would score a hatful as he's doing well in a Burnley side who are expected to go down?!? And also I reckon we need to start giving some of are youngest ago as there doing great things in the youth level or out in loan but we know how good they really are until they are given a chance in the first team.

I totally agree some players don't seem to want to bother playing for west ham and that is shocking given the history we have and the players that we've been lucky enough to have grace are team so they should look at who has played before us and helped us get are history and everything and feel hounored when they play for west ham and have the passion we do as everyone keeps saying we are 2 good to go down but we were to good when we had Joe Cole Defoe Carrick di canio etc, so they need all to stop moaning about whatever going on and just get on the pitch and do the basics cause doing basics might not win you games but it will defiantly go a long way to putting us in the right direction.

I still reckon Pickford is the keeper for us he is young English and doing amazing things for Sunderland and I disagree as I belive Oxford is ready for first team he is an exceptional young player with the world at his feet and should be given a go I mean he can't do any worse than what we have at the minute let's be honest so give him a game when he's back and call some of the younger lads back from loan and give them a game and look into are youth system as the youth team seems to be doing well.

I'm sorry but I disagree I belive with Carroll you obviously know what your getting but there's no one better at it and the defenders will hate facing a fit and hungry Andy Carroll and with confidence he will ruin any defence in the league and with the flair and creativetiy behind him and the crosses in the box I belive he can be during pre season he has looked strong fit and up for it and get juve he was unplayable against a very good defensive side so I hold out hope that he will do well for us.
