West Ham pre-match thread

Recommended Posts

I fully expect changes to be made, but have to question why we didn't put out a weakened side against Liverpool knowing a win was unlikely and following the defeat to Man City there's wasn't much to play for. Would much rather us have gone full strength today with a fresh team to take all three points off West Ham.

How about moving moving our attack minded full backs forward and bringing Justin and Fuchs in behind them. Like Schmeichel, Justin, Morgan, Soyuncu, Fuchs, Hamza , Pereira, Maddison , Chilwell, Iheanacho , Vardy. No problems out wide now. Gives Wilf and Jonny a rest, they need it after the last two matches.

Any changes wouldn't be leaked this early. 

West Ham would get wind and have extra preparation time. 

If Vards isn't injured, he'll want to play and be only the 7th player to score 30 goals in a Premier season. 

He's broken so many records, he'll want this one👍

We need to shrug off the past two results with a win today. Expecting to see at least 5 changes though. Really not sure what to expect. 

That would be too many changes for me. I'd do 3 tops, and then a different 3 for the following fixture.

Rodgers said a week or so ago that Vardy woud have to be rested for some of the Christmas/NY fixtures. I think this is one he will sit out. 

Mind games my friend, mind games....

Surely not, we haven't got 9 players to come in?

Realistically:

 

Ward

Fuchs

Justin

Morgan

Praet

Choudhury

Gray

Albrighton

Iheanacho

 

Could all start, which would be 9 changes from our normal 4141 starting XI.

Why is it a shock we are going to make wholesale changes today? We were run ragged less than 48 hours ago, just in case everyone's forgotten..

Wrong. If he makes 9 changes it’ll be because of the advice he has from the medical & sports science people. If he ignored such advice, he would be in danger of losing his head.

Surely not? I'd hope not anyway!

 

Need some regularity in there. 9 is too much and I'd hope it's not true.

Excellent Dwight Schrute impression.

I would like to see all 20 teams agree to make 11 changes for this gameweek. The powers that be would soon stop this fixture nonsense if that happened.

Only playing Devils Advocate here but Puel seemed to make changes without medical advice? Would rather trust Brendan than that muppet.
