Re: West Ham vs Man City Official Match Thread

Cresswell was at least as good as the other backs if not better, for most of the time he was defending against Mahrez and the overlapping Walker on his own with no help from the other backs or the midfield but still managed to get up and support the forwards better than Fredericks.God knows how many...

Re: West Ham vs Huddersfield Official Match Thread

Didn't see the game, only listened on the radio whilst simultaneously watching the rugby. According to the stats in the paper Huddersfield players on average ran half a mile further per man yesterday; now to my way of thinking that just shouldn't happen. Are Huddersfield's players super fit or are ...

Re: West Ham vs Newcastle Official Match Thread

I've watched Nobes play some wonderful through balls this season when he has people like Antonio and Arnie running into spaces for him. We have nobody else even close to his ability at this and it is one area in particular that Rice needs to learn from him. He is always calm on the ball and holds it...

Just read that Cressie and Johnson are injured so hope Balbuena is available otherwise Zabs will be on the left

If that's correct pell will pick Arf fir left back.
I think he's injured as well!

Re: West Ham vs Newcastle Official Match Thread

If Balbuena fit and Cressie not then will need to put Oggie at left back

Re: West Ham vs Arsenal Official Match Thread

So once again the infamous "twelfth man" will be turning out for the opposition. It’s just how it is these days I’ve not read one suppprtice comment anywhere about Arnie so you have to assume he would get a rough ride Personally, I think we need him today but fuck knows where his head is so I guess...

I like his passing ability. It's generally quick and usually advances the attack.

No "worldy" yet, but he reads the game brilliantly and will make those killer passes when/ if he is able, by clever movement, to gain that extra yard of space as Noble does.
Exactly my point.

Re: Does Rice play too safe?

I have already stated on here that yesterday when we went to 2 in midfield, he carried on playing that safe, unexposed game 5 yards in front of the center halves leaving Snodgrass to cover the whole of midfield. Is Rice protecting his reputation by not leaving his comfort zone? Is he putting his re...

Re: West Ham vs Brighton Official Match Thread

Think, Antonio on the right wing instead of Carrol would have been the right choice for the starting 11. Perez is fucking useless, don´t wanna see him in a West Ham shirt for a longer period. Arni was magnificent. We need a parnter for the central midfield beside Rice. Neither Obiang, nor Noble are...
