I'm going to shout this long and loud in the hope Moyes hears this . We should go for the win on Sunday against a very tired looking and fraught Arsenal. We can either try and stutter over the line with a couple of draws or do it in one hit with a positive win at the emirates. I'd start with Carroll and Hernandes up front with Arnie behind them


Rice Ogbonna Cresswell

Zabelletta Noble Kouyate. Masuaku

Arnie Carroll


Arnie and Carroll both track back more than Lanzini for me, who is a bit of a lazy luxury imo.

Dabber, wouldn’t disagree with your team or comments for the arsenal game, only thing that makes me think we have no chance is, you've Forgotten to pick a keeper😄 apart from your team I wouldn’t disagree with is, i would play Adrian in goal! Think there are some that would disagree with Noble and Kouyate, but I wouldn’t, football is all about opinions like everything in life, we have our subs to try to change things if necessary, The win would keep us up. COYI⚒⚒⚒.

i will argue till i'm blue in the face noble and kouyate ain't good enough i'd drop noble and play kouyate and the only reason being lack of players and his enine and i'd say to him just sit in front of defence and no kamikaze runs leaving us wide open my team is. adrian. rice ogbonna cresswell. mario edmilson kouyate masuaku. arnautovic. lanzini. chiquarito. 3-4-2-1.p. s tell kouyate to sit in front of back three no nutty runs whatsoever.

18 Apr 2018 23:21:31
Chelmsford I meant to put either they’re both S**T about the keeper! 😀There are some valid points on here about Noble and Kouyate and Ithink next season it will be doubtful if either are playing but now is not the right time to drop them. Sunday is definately winnable with key players coming back a t a key time. Carrolls injury issue frustrates me as much as anyone but we do lok a totally different outfit when he plays. Just think he and Chicarito could be big heroes against a relatively poor Arsenal defence come Sunday, get the win and plan for next season.

19 Apr 2018 09:12:39
Kram48, telling Kouyate to do something and expecting him to do it is two different things, he needs Noble next to him to keep him disciplined or at least to drop in for him. As per my previous post Lanzini is a bit of a luxury item for me at the moment, looks quality when the goings good but doesn’t work hard enough when we haven’t got the ball . Carroll and Arnie always put a shift in and track back. We shall see, I think we both agree we should go for it though .

19 Apr 2018 13:08:02
yep I'd drop NOBLE for EDMILSON as he's more of an athlete and the way arsenal move the ball we are going to need that and NOBLE hasn't got the legs or engine he's devoid of any pace I know he's far more experienced than EDMILSON and that's the only reason I'd stick with KOUYATE because of his ability to run hard for ninety mins and that's where his ability ends and I agree with you dabbed if KOUYATE can't stick to team orders he shouldn't be playing and if we had all players fit he wouldn't make my bench and I'm serious because he's awful.

19 Apr 2018 13:50:49
Kouyate wouldn't get a place on my 9 year old sons Sunday league team he is shocking!

18 Apr 2018 09:26:18
Interesting fact about Joe Hart

Joe Hart (18 appearances) has made as many errors leading to goals this season (four) as every other English goalkeeper in the premier league put together (179 appearances total)

That's pretty shocking - can only hope that he's not signed during the summer, 120k a week for statistics like that is absolutely shocking - Played out of his skin against Chelsea, but 1 performance in 10 just isn't even close to being good enough.

Can someone tell me why we signed Hugill, he hasn't played and now we're thinking of selling him, if they wanted a striker to sit on the bench then why not Martinez and save ourselves £10m

Welcome to the outer limits and the twilight zone stevie :)

18 Apr 2018 11:51:20
Yep, this is how we roll. Buy a player and then don't play him and sell him. Brilliant. We go from one extreme to another lmfao.

Now down to serious business. Lots of noises coming out of Chelski apparently that they are looking at our players and one in particular. Everton also and Spurs.

In the interests of Business would it be wrong to think we could ask Chelski for some of there assets ie ZOUMA (with Rice at the heart of our Defence would do ok once he gets back to FULL FITNESS) . CHalobah maybe. Stoke rumour flying around about Shakiri? And if all else fails we will buy striker from Luton Town on the last day just to appease the fans.

18 Apr 2018 15:33:26
How can we expect to get our money back on a player we paid too much money for in the first place regarding hugill who I feel sorry for being judged on twenty minutes cameo appearances but how can we ask 9 mill as no premier clubs are going to be interested and championship clubs ain't going to pay 9 mill so we've done money.

18 Apr 2018 17:49:21
Good point kram. Totally agree.

18 Apr 2018 23:20:41
cheers dave .

17 Apr 2018 09:11:29
I must admit even though a point is not the end of the world I did expect a positive result last night, but it just goes to show we are where we are because we deserve to be in that position.

We have a 7 point cushion which means out of four games Stoke have left ( Home Palace, Burnley, Away Liverpool Swansea), they need at least 2 wins and a draw to get level but with a goal difference of -33 reality they need 3 wins from 4, or 2 wins 2 draws which is a tall order.

Southampton who are starting to play well under Hughes albeit the results not going there way.

They have 5 games as we do ( Home B, mouth Man C Away, Leicester Everton Swansea), the good is 2 worst than ours . Again a tall order, they have only I think won 2 games away all season in Prem,

Its going to be tight but hopefully we may just scrape through even without picking up any more points which is unthinkable, but worrying all the same. We should never be in this position in the first place but it it what it is.

We have Arsenal Sunday who play in the Europa on Thursday and as they are not going anywhere in the Prem it may benefit us.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2018 10:36:25
My only concern with Sunday Seymour is that arsenal have been very poor last couple of games and are due to put in a decent performance, this game is one that may have come a week or two late for us . But I am allways hopefull :)

17 Apr 2018 11:25:16
Hi Jason

Arsenal have been poor, but I can't see him playing his big guns for a pointless match with such an important games on Thursday, My worry is Moyes may be thinking that a point would be great which will restrict us and no doubt play deeper than the Atlantic.

Southampton play at Leicester Thursday night and than the FA cup semi against Chelski on Sunday, I think Hughes will play his strongest team Thursday and Sunday match is a bonus,

If Stoke lose at home to Burnley, Stoke would have to win their last 3 matches to go past us, 2 wins and a draw with their goal difference would not be good enough unless we get absolutely hammered in our games.

That leaves Southampton, should they lose away at Leicester than they would need to win 2 and a draw to equal our points, this is all providing we lose every match for the rest of the season.

Bloody hell this is ridiculous, playing on ifs and buts to stay in the Division, I know Moyes has steadied the ship but we should be out of trouble by now, his be in charge 6 months.

17 Apr 2018 11:55:22
Another season that never got going, injuries upon injuries, Tatics that don’t work and sad to say some players that have not left it all there, combined with a bridge crew made up of admirals with no idea and no real thought of genuine change . Oh well COYIS :)

18 Apr 2018 14:52:22
Lets be honest none of these players are actually Moyes choice. He has done well to get a tune out of them with Slav this squad would have been down by now. The squad is lacking quality in most departments and this summer there needs to be a massive clearout starting with Carroll (5 games a season is not acceptable) Reid a mistake every game, Noble legs are treading water and I could go on. Time for some investment in the team to match the stadium, Upton Park has gone we have to draw a line in the sand and move forward. Over 50 years supporting the hammers and it never gets any easier but I like all of you I wouldn't swap it for any other team. COYI.

18 Apr 2018 15:39:10
When teams like CHELSEA AND ARSENAL are vulnerable you have to go for it and forms Moyes is too defensive I understand when you are down the bottom your tactics change but a point ain't going to make much difference but 3 will and why I got negative vibes from a few we should definitely gone for it against Stoke as they are average at best and is it a coincidence that when against Chelsea and Stoke when we played with two up front and attacking football we looked a better side by a mile and why I can't guarantee we would have won or lost both games there is a big chance we would have beaten Stoke and maybe Chelsea.

18 Apr 2018 17:51:33
Whilst I disagreed with your tactics against Chelsea I agreed with them regarding Stoke. Moyes mucked up there a bit.

18 Apr 2018 23:23:52
your probably right dave but I get so angry because Chelsea were vulnerable but I get what you mean because CHELSEA have got the players to hurt you but thoughrt STOKE were very poor and we should have won that game but one more point and I think we are ok mate.

19 Apr 2018 17:59:49
Yea I understand totally about the Chelsea comment they could of gone for it. For all we know that point might save us or those 2 points lost might have doomed us. It's difficult to say. What is 100% we can both agree on is our owners are shocking. It's only a matter of time before we go to the championship.

17 Apr 2018 06:52:52
We could've done with Payet last night, I lost count how many free kicks we had just outside the box and we didn't know what to do with any of them.

Where is one more win going to come from, got to attack Everton at home, and maybe Man City as they've already won the league they might just be their for the taking, we just seem to bottle it against the lesser teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2018 23:27:50
toon just beat arsenal, west brom beat man Utd, man city have won the league, Leicester nothing to play for arguably same for everton although I'm sure big sam would love to see us go down. we haven't made it easy on ourselves but having 3 goals disallowed today is very unlucky also harts keeping for their goal was poor.

I think we can do it as some of the teams near the bottom have to play each other, still making me nervous though just like when kouyate is on the ball and is the deepest midfielder.
