West Ham A Match Thread. Brace yourself.

Very odd team selection. Surely that should have played against Liverpool so we could have a full strength side today. 

 

To play devils advocate..........................

 

If we had played that team and lost 0-4 to Liverpool we'd be getting it from all angles that we surrendered any chance we had of winning the title.

 

Also by playing the team we did against Liverpool we gave ourselves a chance plus our first XI will have had almost a week between the Liverpool and Newcastle match.

 

Plan for today is to hold these until 60 minutes in a fast tempo game, wait for them to tire and then bring on Maddison, etc and go for the win.

Kasper
Fuchs - Morgan - Evans isn’t that bad, minor downgrade

Ricky > Justin could be a big downgrade although what we have seen of Justin is too inconsistent to say how he’ll play

Barnes > Albrighton is about the same

Vardy > Nacho big downgrade but his Mrs just gave birth so would have happened anyway
 

The real worry is Wilf - Madders - Youri becoming Gray - Hamza - Mendy :unsure:

Can only hope this has been planned in for a while and the team have trained for it properly. Maybe this is why we've been crap for the past few weeks - all the focus has been on getting this ragged bunch to play like Barca

This is definitely what's happened.

Why not rest 3 or 4 today and 3 or 4 against newcastle. Not sure why he is chucking away 3 points today in a  very winnable game.

That is ****ing hideous. 

 

I'd rather we have played that against Liverpool and gotten back on track today with a win. 

 

This is just throwing away three more points when we need to stop the rot and get a new run going. 

Come on, be serious. That’s just bashing with hindsight. :thumbdown:

confirmation we're taking the FA Cup seriously I guess? We're about to have an actual live rehearsal in the Prem.

 

Brendan, I'm loving this, seriously.

2 games in less than 48 hours.

It is ridiculous. The Football League which has 8 more matches to fit in manage to find a way to get three days between matches over Christmas yet we're playing twice in 45 hours.

This will have been planned out in advance. Full strength against Liverpool and Man City and reserves against West Ham. Hasn't worked out in hindsight but spare us the meltdown, he has to give the players a rest, we will really struggle for the rest of the season otherwise. 

 

Look how far clear of 5th we are. We are allowed a wobble.

Back 4 is so, so much slower than what we've been used to. I expect us to get absolutely mullered in behind.

Where is Benko?  Wes is not up to 90 minutes.  If Rogers gets this right,  then he truly is a managerial Icon.  Get it wrong and this could seriously harm our chances of CL football.

the Meltdown this place would have been even more laughable had this team been announced against Liverpool

lolwhat a lineup!

 

In all honesty though this shows how much we need to strengthen in the next 2 windows if we’re to cope with European fixtures next year

Slightly concerned by Justin in defence behind that midfield. I actually thought he looked a bit dodge when he came

on in other games so I hope this isn't too much for him today.  

I thought he was excellent when he came on against Watford

Don't get the negativity.

 

Iheanacho will score a hat-trick thanks to three Mendy assists.

For what has been a great season until a week ago I'm now feeling totally dispirited. Almost certainly we are going to have 3 straight defeats over Xmas. To top it off we have a house party tonight and I've got to face a West Ham fan who's going to the game. That's arguably the worst team we've fielded since promotion. West Ham's relegation rivals will be as annoyed as all of us.

No shortage of experience for sure and as I said a shutout and a goal from a lucky corner will do fine.

Yep, I reckon a 6-5 win to us is on the cards
