I have to agree with you all, future looking exciting however my worry now is that we have had a few more long term injuries so look pretty exposed if the likes of Rice, Obiang, Noble get injured, any suggestions who you think would replace those three if they get injured.

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.

It was great to watch a west ham team dominating the possession in an away game, 67% and passing the ball around like they did. We now have to learn how to break down 9 man defences, we missed 12 chances, 2 wasted free kicks from just outside penalty area and we did not have enough creativity in last third.

I agree Ironmike, Masuaku doesn't have the natural defensive instincts that A good defender has, I would love Cresswell to be given a run of games. The rest of the team must learn and get better. This is not the first time Yarmolenko has made critical mistake that has led to a goal and he needs to learn and change,

I also like Antonio, who else would you put in his place at the moment, he held up the ball well, ran for everything and I like your term bullying cause he was very dangerous in one to one situations and often came away with the ball rather than fall over, I think the goals will come.

Sorry guys but I like Antonio, before he got badly injured he scored a few goals for us and knows where the goal is, not sure our other current midfielders do. Didn't he get picked for England then? Against Wolves he had a couple of chances, one was a good header if I remember as opposed to Snodgrass who I am sure shuts his eyes when he heads the ball.

MP profile shows he has been a good manager in Spain and England so I guess we have to assume from that that he knows his stuff, one would also hope he is motivated to succeed.

But most of those players yesterday were headless chickens, lots of poor passing, very little running, on or off the ball. I also think that is close to our best team which is scary, I would have just changed Masuaku for snodgrass, and I have never rated Wiltshire so perhaps noble for one half, obiang for the other.

Wow ironmike, can't find any reason to disagree with you, in fact I am also a bit worried by MC arrogance to doing it his way.

I was not unhappy, in the end, with the way Moyes brought out the best of a few of our players and had a team playing together so was quite surprised he didn't automatically get the job, is he still available?
