West Ham A Match Thread. Brace yourself.

Because we have been playing a different style of football, and our players aren’t used to this level of intensity. It will come - we are in transition. 

I hope so Rach, cuz for the 1st time in a very long time i am not looking forward to the game.

One way to throw away your Champions league positions. What a load of crap. Not even going to bother finding a stream to watch that shite. Will just get pissed instead:beer:

 

Morgan is going to get ripped apart, with the greatest respect to him as a club legend. He is an old man in football terms. Everytime he has played he has looked a bombscare.

I think he's looked surprisingly comfortable every time he's come into the side :dunno:

I expected changes but maybe not this many. Think some people underestimate the effect of playing 2 games in less than 48 hours (especially during this run of fixtures).

 

They're pushing their bodies to the limit every match and there's no time to recover. 

 

I'd rather do this than have 2 or 3 important players pick up long term injuries.

Yeah its a bit strange, are we the only team to make wholesale changes in the league during Christmas? I can’t think of anyone else, so you have to question is 9 changes necessary. Even West Ham’s lineup today is close to full strength 

Apart from the six outfield changes .......

Rodgers failure to 'look beyond the very next game' and stubborness hv ruined my whole Xmas so far...had we lost to MC n Lpool with weakened teams  I would understand....but now gonna struggle v WH n Newc..then we got further  fatigie with FA n Caribo cups...

He talked of rotation late Nov..but virtually no thing happened....lacklustre NORWICH game should hv alerted him..

I just LOVE this lineup! :scarf:

 

Although I would have preferred Ricardo on the bench instead of Chilly, given that Justin could also play at LB.

The reactions in here are wild. West Ham are pony, we needed to make changes. If we don't get a result then the players have let us down, that side should still be able to compete. 

 

1-2 Perez brace

Yeah and it’s still pretty strong (for West Ham). 1 of those changes is Fabianski who’s returning from injury and is a regular first team player.

Yeah I just can’t call it - but I do think Hamza is better at starting attack than people give him credit for. Don’t forget West Ham have heavily rotated too - it’s like a cup match really isn’t it. Hopefully our impact subs will be enough.

I'm sure the idea is usually to rest a few players here and there so we don't get left in a position where we have to rest the whole 11 lol

 

Should be interesting though, let's have it City.

We have only played half a season without European matches, why is our fat lazy squad this tired? 

Exactly this, it's pathetic. A few changes I understand but 9 is embarrassing from Brendan

I understand change but Hamza and Mendy TOGETHER on the pitch at the same time! I dont dislike either player but who is going to pass to the Nacho man for him to score? 

 

Have either of them players ever got an assist (probably) but i cant remember when. 

 

Oh well.. come on City.. up the blues.

Only thing I can think of is that he wants to look at these players before the transfer window opens?

He's had 9 months and we've had 4 years of Gray what else is there to find out?

On the bright side, if West Ham somehow lose this on Fabianski's first day back, they'll fall to pieces and get relegated, meaning we'll no longer be linked to the same transfer targets.

This really has the hallmarks of a two fingered gesture to the Premier League and their utterly stupid fixture planning. Though we are making more changes than any other team. I'd be really annoyed if I supported the likes of Villa, Southampton and Watford as here is a side basically chucking a game and giving 3 points to a key relegation rival.
