Ok fair enough for 69 games it has been a problem
Don't know how long you've been following the Hammers mate but there have been a lot worse than Ogbonna. I can remember Neil Ruddock, Matthew Upson, Gary Breen our own James Tomkins who, imo, avoided a lot of criticism because he was home grown, and of course the 3 standouts, for me at least, Gary Strodder, Paul Hilton and Colin Foster.
I never said Ogbonna was the worst player I have seen mate. In my opinion he was once a good player but I have very little confidence in his ability now days.
He is happier when Carroll is playing because it gives him the option to just hoof the ball forward instead of playing out from the back. This is something he is not confidant doing and can easily get caught out.
Statistics aren’t the only thing to go by, I prefer to watch the game, normally more than once and judge on what I see. Obviously this then comes down to a matter of opinion, this is why I don’t fully agree with your comments regarding the players above.
The length of time being a West Ham supporter is certainly not relative to a person’s knowledge of a player’s performance within a team. Having said that, as an ex season ticket holder, and first attending Upton Park in the mid sixties, I don’t really think that should come into question.
