Rice gives the ball away and Kosovo score. More ammo for the trolls.
Pretty much the whole back line and midfield were a mixture of poor and average this evening and they all owe a shitload to the scintillating front three but especially Sterling.

He got a 6 in the Mail which I thought was about right. A few stray passes, one leading to their 2nd but golden-boy Alexander Arnold was hopelessly out of position for the final pass...but also some very important interceptions.

I reckon they all took it for granted at half-time and Kosovo were better than that.

Southgate out.

Bilic in.

No-one would have believed, in the second decade of the twentyfirst century, that West Hams affairs were being watched from the soulless stadium of Old Trafford. No-one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few even considered the possibility of transfers to Old Trafford anymore. And yet, across the gulf of the midlands, pockets immeasurably deeper than ours regarded Declan Rice with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us

One holding mid player. Rice. Asking a lot of the lad at International level. Henderson likes to attack so too Barkley.
If Henderson holds back then Rice could carry the ball more but as the last midfielder standing he has to be 100% sure when he passes across the lines.
Look at all the missplaced passes from England players. If Rice makes ONE stray pass it could lead to a goal.
Probably playing against better opposition would suit Rice as the team as a whole cannot attack in numbers like they do against the teams we should beat easy. 5 Goals before half time? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

The “Idle prick of the week talking bollocks award” goes to Sky Sport’s Charlie Nicholas:

I wonder how many times he’s watched West Ham over 90 minutes in the last year?
It’s a no news week and he’s got to get his name out there somehow. So just jump on an easy target because he’s read a few others (who clearly watch just highlights of WHU) saying the same thing.

The chances of Ricey going to Manc are a million to one...

Exactly - like a no deal Brexit as confirmed by Doris outside No 10.
