Not putting any dampeners on it but we can only climb so high in the table because we are too porous at the back all the quality sides have tight defences and good goal differences until we get that sorted we will be limited in success, BUT great improvement no question. IRONMIKE.

A new left back and box to box midfielder would help that roll on january.

09 Dec 2018 20:29:28
Seem to switch off a little from corners when we are ahead. Last couple games we had great chances to put the 4th in though game would be dead and buried, we attack with so many numbers look a little vulnerable on the counter but fair to say I'm sure we are all happy with how well we are attacking. Seems a bit like a we'll score more than you at the moment very open and exciting stuff. Not complaining sure defence will get better too in time may take some new full backs.

09 Dec 2018 18:26:13
Arnautovic is out for a month we definitely look suspect on the left why not move Anderson to no10 his favorite position and go with Cresswell wth Masuaku sitting in front of him has we did last year both like to get forward but both have the legs to get back n help out. we need to cut out the silly passing mistakes palace/ cardiff u may get away with it the big six need half a chance.

10 Dec 2018 08:58:51
Agree with all comments, yes we are fragile at the back, but we are a threat when going forward for the time being I would rather be a threat going forward rather than have a tight defence. We had nothing after 4 games now were on 21 points, MP just needs the balance which hopefully he can address in Jan

I have stated in my posts in the past this season for me is a free season for MP, take a look at what we have sell who won't fit in to his style and build with his kind of players in Jan if the right player is available but most definitely in the summer.

Concerning the defence yes we are fragile but with decent scouting as in the Diop signing its something that can be addressed in Jan.

For the time being as long as we are a threat upfront we always have a chance.

11 Dec 2018 08:57:52
I agree with the above. MP will need the whole season to sort out his squad. We need to trust his skill and man management - just look at what he’s done with Snodgrass.

If we are recruiting Nasri for midfield (short term fix) in January instead of Almiron (a real Prem star of the future), I am disappointed, but this may well be financial. Remember how much we spent in the summer and that Nasri is on a free. I don’t think the David’s are worried about his high wages on a 6 month contract as long as we stay within FFP. They probably want to keep a lid on capital expenditure until next summer, when MP has made his mind up about squad exits.

We also have Lanzini and Yarmolenko to return for next season.

11 Dec 2018 09:56:04
Big IF, but if results go our way this weekend, we could be 7th, and just 2 points behind man united COYI.

09 Dec 2018 10:05:52
Chaps, a question for you, is the team playing with more freedom when Arnies not playing, instead of trying to get the ball through to him all the time it's now going all across the front and the goals are now being spread out, I know the teams that we've played recently are not the top teams but they've still got to be beat?, don't get me wrong, Arnie is fantastic but what would you do if a massive bid come in for him?

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 10:25:52
Not now but end of season take the money, every player has a price, 50 m plus grab it get two or three excellent younger players in , brains needed in sorting it out but that’s how less wealthy clubs can build up. IRONMIKE.

09 Dec 2018 11:05:35
Stevie, absolutely agree with Arnie quote, even said the same in answer to Whorya earlier! Never thought I would say it, but not missed at all imo, perhaps others were in awe of him, everything was about Arnie, now we know it’s not, goals coming from everyone now👍👍⚒⚒.

09 Dec 2018 21:53:19
Good post Stevie funnily enough in Commiserations Corner after yesterday's game we asked the same question even wondered if we had already seen Arnies last game for us personally I hope not but if a big offer comes and seeing he is out till at least the 10th January it could be a scenario.

10 Dec 2018 11:52:24
It is amazing to develop a 'hamstring injury' that will take until the transfer window to heal. Call me skeptical but am always dubious of hamstring injuries.
In all honesty, he kept us up last year and do not begrudge him a chance to play at a higher level - hopefully a bid in excess of 40m comes in and we can reinvest in another top player, Danny Welbeck will be available cheap and may be an option to cover until end of year?

10 Dec 2018 15:09:30
Glen, me and you mate the biggest sceltics🤣😂I have done a turnaround on Arnie, thought we couldn’t do without him, now I’m get rid of him, him and his brother seem to have to high an opinion of themselves👎 Honestly think that Arnie now thinks he’s West Ham, liken his attitude a bit to who he models himself on, Z Ibrahimovic! He wants to go so let’s get used to being without him, we’ve hardly done badly without him👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

11 Dec 2018 09:05:51
Hmm. Whilst there may be something in that, don’t forget the lack of quality in the sides we’ve beaten recently.

Similarly, our next few games are against lower class opposition.

Arnie has become a high quality CF since Moyes put him there. He is not a selfish player, runs hard and creates plenty of space for others.

I would rather not see him leave, but football is a business and money talks. He has been great for us after a terrible first few games and has made a huge difference to the side.

If he moves on, I’ll wish him well.

Gabigol, anyone?

12 Dec 2018 15:18:13
Arnie is still our best over all player don't forget that. I guarantee if you asked opposition managers which one West ham player would you most fear it would be arnie. I would only sell for 75 m or cash plus a player such as loftus cheek or welbeck or lingaard someone who would genuinely improve our squad. It won't be easy to replace him as our centre forward talisman. I don't think I need to make examples that prove once we find a top quality dangerous physical willing player with a proven record of scoring and creating hugely important goals for us WE SHOULD NOT SELL THEM unless necessary due to finances or player demotivation which is not the case. I say keep him improve in central midfield and left full back. Europe still very realistic this year. Possible long cup run too, let's not shoot ourselves in the foot. Coyi.

That is a sore one ed, not surprised he came off.

{Ed001's Note - it does look very painful poor bugger.}

08 Dec 2018 16:55:12
BIT of a nail biter in the end, BUT that's a great result, BOY do we need full backs, IRONMIKE.

{Ed0333's Note - AC is nearly match fit tho mate lol

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:02:09
Do we ever. Clyne and another left back.

{Ed0333's Note - not Nathaniel Clyne surely?

08 Dec 2018 14:00:45
With Arnie not playing I'm hoping the other strikers will step up and show what they can do, so my super6 prediction for this match is a 4-1 win, COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 14:12:38
Now that’s what you call optimism. IRONMIKE.

08 Dec 2018 16:56:23
WE had the chances to make it four but our defence not quite right as yet one clean sheet IRONMIKE.

08 Dec 2018 17:02:23
Stevie, halfway there mate, if you had a bet for 6 wins, check your cash out if we win the next couple🤣🤣well done so far anyway, some might be winnable but if they “park the bus” can be difficult, can’t wait for MOTD tonight😂👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

08 Dec 2018 17:44:01
Hi chaps, well, I predicted 5 goals, that was a little bit too close for comfort, a big well done to Snoddy, he was getting a bit a stick, he went on loan and has lost some weight, a much improved player, let's keep this going.

08 Dec 2018 18:08:05
Stevie, loving Snoddy, what a thoroughly good professional after all the stick he took previously! Now must be an automatic choice on the team sheet, great assists he’s been providing, so pleased he got his goal today👍 Well done MP for keeping him pre season and spotting his potential and giving him the chance of more playing time👍Can’t wait for MOTD tonight, COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

09 Dec 2018 00:03:00
Hands up, baby hands up. well you no what I mean harry, I was a SNODGRASS slater and he's just proven me wrong, but the only slight doubt for me is PALACE are very average side I'm afraid, but that's the only doubt when he strings a run of good performances together, then I will believe he can cut the mustard in the premiership.

I'm a hard taskmaster, but when they are paid vast amounts of money, that's the least we die hard supporters deserve is solid 100% good performances. I understand they ain't robots and put in the odd bad performance, but that's two decent performances in all, out of numerous games.

I truly believe we are four players away from being a very good side now. i know that's over a third of the side needs replacing, but two full backs, a strong unit in midfield and a striker of world class ability, that's it simple, it's as easy as that. I've got it sorted because I'm never wrong 😥😥😥.

09 Dec 2018 07:48:00
Whorya👍We all get it wrong sometimes, it’s being big enough to admit it! Of course you’re right, they’re not robots, we just expect them to be more consistent for the huge amounts of wages they’re paid! We are WH and simply can’t expect to have a squad that can beat every Premiership ship club we play, so we are always going to have a mixture of classy players then average players! What most expect I think is effort, effort, effort, nothing less, they are bloody professionals and should have the legs to run, otherwise what do they do in training? I have slated Hernandez on here many times, but he suddenly seems to have came to life, I now see him running and scoring goals, brilliant goal against Palace, yes he’s now getting the starts, but previously he’s been anonymous when he came on, so no encouragement to start him next game! Maybe Arnie’s injury has given him the chance to steal the limelight, who knows? At the moment, we don’t even need Arnie imo, never thought I would say that with Anderson proving a revelation as well👍 We now have several scoring goals instead of relying on one player! No team can be so reliant on one player!, ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

09 Dec 2018 08:45:53
Wow what does Pellegrini say to them at half
time? Complete turnaround in the second half
I think Carol made a difference too.
Hernandez and Perez up front together didn’t
Work yesterday.
Rice Snoddy Andersen stood out for me, however thought
they were all good.
It’s just a pleasure to see beautiful football again
after a few years of crap.
Long may it last.
