Mid week I reckon Moyes should protest as many as he can, play a few of the youth, defensively we are really stretched and one more injury will be a calamity before we can get anyone in for January. Almost think Dawson and Diop don't play and play Kral and Alese or something like that. We don't need points and while it would be good to go undefeated Burnley, Arsenal, Norwich, Southampton as well as the Spurs Carabao Cup match are more important.

Yes, we have plenty of youngsters who could play. It would be a real vote of confidence for them to be in the starting XI, as well as on the bench to come on later.

I’d start Perkins, Alese and Ashby, with Noble as Captain. Kral should start, too.

The bench should have experience as well as new faces like Oko-Flex.

Far be it from me to praise Spurs players, but some things are bigger than football and well done to Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon in the match against Newcastle for helping to save a fans life.

I see Reidy has reached agreement with the club and is leaving. Not much of a fan of Kiwis living in Oz, but he is an exception. Wonderful 10+ years with the club and he always gave everything I felt. Will always be remembered for that goal at the Boleyn, a special night, wish him all the best going forward.

Totally agree would have been nice for the fans to say goodbye to Winston properly at the London Stadium. Come on West Ham in it him to the next home game. Will never forget that last night at Upton Park.

Re Kiwis - but don't object to butter, cheese and lamb being shipped 12k miles. Carbon footprints, logistics etc. And no am not a Remoaner.

What has been refreshing for me (and I hope I don't jinx it) is that players have been on the bench unused and then come in and done a job. Diop as an example seems to have gotten better in terms of positional sense from last year and has played brilliantly after being on the bench for most of the season. But best of all is normally at West Ham we would have had stories of unrest, players not playing wanting out, players not wanting to be Pty of the squad. Haven't had a negative story in a while.

I agree mate also we would have caved in under the pressure of spurs. We now have a team to be proud of. TRUE GRIT.


2.) 22 Feb 2021 07:09:34
There is unity in the squad and back room staff.

Unsurprisingly this happens when we hear less from the owners.


3.) 22 Feb 2021 20:02:15
all credit to moyes and the coaching staff. rice was on talk sport this morning talking about how good the mood is within the squad and how great the coaching staff have been and also how fast lingard has settled into the team. long may it continue.


4.) 08 Mar 2021 05:41:43
We just have to battle to keep rice and build a team around him and soucek I truly believe we are a couple of very good signings away from being challenging for top 6 what are the latest rumours if you know please ed on rice and soucek leaving west ham?

Bondswell medical supposedly today? Don't know much about him. From Leipzig, England youth international?

Stories around the En-Nyseri sound like the chase for that Uruguayan if it is to believed. Keep chasing him even when he has made it clear he doesn't want to come. Hope it's not the case.

1.) 25 Jan 2021 18:58:29
Maxi Gomez was it Sdl?


2.) 25 Jan 2021 21:23:49
Yes I hear he hasn’t gone so well in Spain anyway.


3.) 25 Jan 2021 23:08:58
So any more on Bondswell? Supposedly a promising young LB.

What a great result, much better second half. Shame about Johnson and Zouma, hopefully not as bad as they looked.

After my comments last match about lack of width in midfield and how Benrahma didn't work back and support the Left Back I think the changes fix those things so can't complain. Back three, wing backs, Lanzini in for Benrahma, all good for me - now just need to perform because it's a tough game.

Absolutely awful, yes still think the disallowed goal should have stood but we deserved nothing out of the game. Now if we go down this weekend that is 1 point from 12, the worst form in the Premier League. Brighton aren't a bad side but they completely out played us. I know we are doing well and I don't want to be overly critical as yes being in the top 6 at this point is all we might have hoped for, but with 9 games in this month it could really all fall away now if they don't find some form. And the form is the real issue, against Wolves we were outplayed and then lost to City which you perhaps accept but then outplayed in this game even with Brighton losing players to injury and then equalising with 10 men. Other teams just put number us in midfield and seemed to have worked out how to get most of the ball - Moyes needs to change things up and stop playing weak midfielders like Benrahma.

When Fornals was subbed it disrupted us in the middle. I think Rice Soucek Fornals need to play 90 minutes every week.


2.) 03 Dec 2021 15:32:14
We had less off the ball but created almost twice as much as Brighton and double the shots on target. Their keeper made some really good saves aswell that and the dubious ruled out goal would have killed the game off. We came undone by a really good finish from a striker that has only scored 2 this season because of woeful finishing! It does feel like a loss to lose in that fashion but we certainly not out played. Very fine margins and playing on the counter for large parts would have paid off another day.

Wolves very close game didn't we get some rubbish disallowed goal there? Also Man City close.

The performances have dipped and for me it's no surprise with so many key players playing in europa, prem and international. The effort is still their but the fatigue maybe we are seeing a dip in quality of those players.

An extra striker in the summer window would have made a whole lot of difference epically with the fixture pile up! Let's hope we get the reinforcements in January at least

Was good to see Antonio score against El Salvador running from the half way line keeping his composure and dinking it over the keeper. Then to follow it up with an absolute rocket against the USA, great he is finding the form of his life. Now just hope he gets home safely and isn't too tired from the travel as we need to keep the momentum and get the points against Wolves as games coming up are really going to be a test.

Sdl

1.) 18 Nov 2021 04:04:25
See Sullivan has paid 100K to get Antonio back a day earlier - he should be praised when he does these sorts of things. Too many always finding fault and not looking for the good.


2.) 18 Nov 2021 07:43:58
That shows what a true fan of the club Sully is despite all the criticism of him, to pay out that money on one player to get him home early is a great gesture towards the club and DM, but I can honestly say I have never been a critic of the board! ⚒⚒⚒⚒


3.) 18 Nov 2021 19:48:10
I agree Chelmsford. I’ve no problem with G and S. They’ve given us money, and done what they’ve promised. We appear to be doing better since Brady piped down.


 

 

04 Nov 2021 18:33:58
Well that was the worst half of football in some time. How we are not 3 or 4 down is just some poor finishing by Genk. The pace on the break is just tearing us apart. Hopefully Moyes can get them sorted as we have had our chances towards the end and if we can tighten up can still get something.

Sdl

1.) 04 Nov 2021 20:02:42
Better second half and a draw away in Europe is not a bad result. Have to be much tighter on Sunday as this was a bit like a game of basketball and the Liverpool forwards will kill us if it ends up like that.


2.) 04 Nov 2021 22:41:42
It’s a squad depth issue. Our best starting XI can give any side a decent game.

See Newcastle are looking at Ake too. Ake played under Howe previously so if he does move I would guess Newcastle is probably in front position.

Agree with Major, the signing fee at 21 mill is good but his wage is way too high for us

Hlozek normally actually plays in a wide position rather than a striker. He scores cutting in. As said, not sure he will solve the issue unless converted to an out and out striker, but that isn’t his game.

Yes a CB and a Striker if we can somehow find money. Not sure we need Lingard back over those two positions.

Shame that Johnson looked to do his hamstring as Mount would not have had that space if Johnson could have run back. Leaves us short now with full backs and hopefully Zouma is okay or we really will be short of defenders.

Agreed he really has stopped doing the things that made him hard to play against and the work at the corner was poor.

It is if the opposition player plays or attempts to play the ball not if it just deflects off of them.

I would start Lanzini in place of Benrahma. I wouldn't have said that about Lanzini a couple of months ago, but of late when he has come on he has not only added some flair but has also really grafted. Benrahma looks like he thinks that isn't his job. If not Lanzini then let's put in another tough midfielder like Kral and play with 4-3-2-1, give Rice and Soucek some support as when it goes wide on our left the ball just moves past our holding midfielders and no-one gets back to support with energy. Benrahma got caught on the wrong side of his man over and over again.

Good summation. Think Lanzini needs to start against Brighton, Benrahma just doesn’t do enough and Lanzini has earns his right. Antonio really needs to be firing as we just aren’t showing enough up front. Possibly pull him off if not working at half time and throw Bowen into the middle.
