Hi guys. Just wondered what people think Moyes will do if Antonio is out for a while. Do you think he will just try putting Yarmolenko in the Antonio role. Or do you think he might try and change the formation and either play 2 upfront or go the other way with no recognised striker.
Surely he won't stick with Haller as he was about as visible as Lord Lucan yesterday.
He may have real ability but if he doesn't try to show it, what's the point!

Whenever I think of the 4-4-2 system I always think of big man little man, like the Quin and Phillips at Sunderland ( if any of you are old enough to remember them), Haller certainly fits that bill and you could put Benrahma With him, you could still put Fornels left mid and Bowen right mid as they have both got good engines on them to get up and down, or you could put Bowen with Haller and Benrahma wide or Fornels up there with him, there’s a few systems he could choose, but Haller has got to do more if he’s up there on his own, he has to hold it up and wait for support, Fulham game will be interesting, I feel we have to win that.


2.) 01 Nov 2020 11:34:07
Sorry all but how can you keep talking about Haller playing for our club. He is a cheat and total waste of time. He does not want to be at the club, if last night did not show that to you all then what’s the point. Who says we need a big man, play the ball on the floor with our skill full attacking players we have at our disposal. Brian Clough had a saying the game is played on grass not in the sky. Watch the big 6 foot plus opposing defenders scratching there heads when everything gets fizzed-in hard and low. Sorry Haller has had his chance and blew it every time.

Stevie, I know the big man small man up you’re referring to, but please don’t mention about giving that Haller yet another chance in any position🤣😂Up front it’s as long as whoever puts a shift in and at least let’s defenders Know we have front men that are willing to challenge! Haller goes down at to many man to man tackles like he wants to get away from the play! As suggested by Hammer- Dave try Yarmelenko up front with a choice between Bowen/ Fornals/ Benrahma when fit if Ant still not back! We m need somebody that can rough the opposition up not fall over!
Thought the penalty was a disgrace, that f——— Salah was like Tom Daley off the springboard! Unfortunately Arthur have him the opportunity to dive which he never misses when he has the ball in the area! Grahame Souness has slated him for diving, that’s an ex Scouser great talking who was as hard as nails! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.


4.) 01 Nov 2020 12:19:14
I was just merely suggesting a position Haller could play if we absolutely had nothing else, because as soon as Antonio is back then I don’t think there is even room on the bench for Haller!


5.) 01 Nov 2020 12:32:28
Hammer Man, I agree with all you say 100%👍You will not find one post of mine where I have ever had any time for Haller, I think he is £ for £ the worst player we have bought with Wilshere in 2nd place, who has gone with a nice few £million for doing f—- all👎
I have been very wary of continually posting rubbish comments about both players especially when others have continually commented how good they both were, saying we need to adapt to Hallers strengths, no he needs to adapt to our strengths but He has no strengths for the Premiership! âš’âš’âš’âš’.


6.) 01 Nov 2020 15:44:28
Yeah I totally agree that the next few games are important. We have been really unlucky not to get another 2 points at least from the Liverpool and Arsenal games. But these next few games could give us an idea if we have turned a corner with our consistency. I am hopeful we have 🤞.


7.) 01 Nov 2020 16:04:51
So its clear that haller has had it so who do we look at fir our striker role cause Antonio is injury prone. Marega, mitrovic, Chris Wood What do we think?


8.) 01 Nov 2020 16:18:32
Benrahma up top. The midfield has a nice balance and the reason we’re doing well. Haller’s days must now be numbered, if not over.


9.) 01 Nov 2020 18:41:22
I'd like benrahama to start our next game. I really think he will do well.


10.) 01 Nov 2020 21:24:25
I am going to be alone on this but I think if there is an issue that Haller doesn’t want to give his all then it should be solved if possible. Man management is one of the most important yet toughest parts of the job. Getting the best out of players is what the manager is there for. Haller has ability and they need to solve the problem not give up and lose 20-30 million on selling him.


11.) 01 Nov 2020 21:31:42
Agree with ya buddy but he genuinely looks disinterested. He can only be managed so far and part of the contribution must come from him.


12.) 02 Nov 2020 07:05:24
Sdl, man management imo is selecting those that give their all in a game and want to show they want to play for the club not selecting players because they have been expensive purchases! If he has to have a cuddle and ask if he feels all right, he should be playing Table Tennis not PL Football!
He clearly has some type of attitude towards the move to WH, he possibly regrets the move and was only concerned about the rich rewards of a 5 year contract and having no knowledge or experience of the PL!
He should be told shape up mate, or put in a transfer request, if not at least you won’t have to worry about paying your bills! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.


13.) 02 Nov 2020 09:55:30
But Chelmsford that is all just guesses, many things could be wrong and we don’t know what they are. I have a lot of people work for me and if someone isn’t performing I try to understand them and find out what motivates them, whether there is something bothering them, something has changed, or possibly it is a issue that is psychological like depression. I would hope that the club would do a bit more than just say he doesn’t want to be here as they can’t guess at these things. If he doesn’t all well and good but I didn’t hear him saying he wanted out and he had the chance.


14.) 02 Nov 2020 15:03:41
Sdl, Almost every post on here must be guess work surely, unless it’s what we see happen on the pitch? None of us see what goes on in training or the attitudes of players!
What would be stopping him from approaching DM or other staff member if he had problems that was bothering him?
The difference as I would guess Sdl with your company is, you wouldn’t have been paying an employee a signing on fee plus a contact for a set number of years regardless of how they perform at work? I suspect they would all start on a probationary period? Sorry to continually bang on about Haller as I know a few rate him, but many more don’t seem to, not that it makes either of us right, it’s just about opinions? ⚒⚒⚒.


15.) 02 Nov 2020 17:00:05
I agree that football and life is all about the individuals opinion. I respect the opinion of others totally. However to have an opinion you must look at the evidence of that subject to form that opinion. In the case of Haller I have formed my opinion on what I have seen on the football pitch. He is lazy, has no worthwhile ball control and gives the impression he is totally disinterested. He I am afraid has not done anything that I have seen to give him the right to wear a claret and blue shirt or wear the badge. He should be nowhere ne’er the squad let alone the team.

Spot on. Who actually thought Dawson was a good buy. Not me for one and happy to be proved wrong. Although he has looked ropey of late!

I wonder if Moyes sees Zouma as a more versatile player than he has has been used at Chelsea. As I don’t see why he would want to upset the Oggy / Dawson partnership
Just a thought.

Hammer-Dave

{Ed002's Note - Zouma is a CB and would be expected to be used that way.}

Do you ever have anything positive to write?
Every hammers fan on here may have been fearing the worse when it went to 3.1 but the fact we held on and by all accounts were very good in the first half, should be something to be pleased about. I just feel some people just can’t wait to knock us and whilst I don’t think everything Moysie has done has been great he has helped put this club back on the map and I’m sick of whinging hammers. I’m sure if we won the league you would still be moaning.

I think Phil is still on here he has a different account name. He changed from an angry young man to a slightly p’d off old boy 😃.

Totally agree. I won’t shout to the rafters simply because the reverse happened last year and all the doom mongers were on here claiming we will be relegated. Then we had the outrage that we sold Grady Diangana to WBA for 18 million! Why don’t we hear from these people now. Because generally they have a motivation to either get rid of moyes and the board and won’t be happy till they have gone.
Be careful what you wish for. Like most on here I am not keen on DGS but they did save us from previous wealthy ownership and like we see withe the messi situation the ridiculous Monopoly money that has affected football is coming home to roost and many clubs bigger than our own Willie in dire financial trouble.
I am hopeful with or without new signings Moyes plays his cards close to his chest and must see some potential in the youth set up or making existing players more versatile, which he has already done a great job at.
I just hope next Monday we all get behind the team and not only for the first 5 minutes till someone makes a bad pass!
