West Ham (H) pre match

Recommended Posts

Praying for two foot of snow so it gets postponed. Or Schlupp earns a penalty and Ulloa buries it, what are the chances for either?

I'd maybe consider a 3-5-2 to give Vardy some help up top and change things up a bit. Tell Chilwell and Ricardo they have free reign to go forward.

 

                                  Kasper

                  Soyuncu   Evans    Fuchs

    Ricardo      Tielemans      Hamza/Praet     Chilwell

                                 Maddison

                           Iheanacho   Vardy

Christ, thinking about this and I am seriously struggling to know what I'd do team-wise. I think Iheanacho deserves a start though. We have to get him in. He's been our biggest threat for the last two months and I'm not joking.

you know why? Because he has been showing plenty of desire and he rarely gives up. If all of our players were like him, we'd be in a different position right now.

Think we've learned that that formation isn't working for us. In particular look at Chilwells last performance. He has pace and runs from deep but in that advanced position he doesn't/can't take anyone one on and just passes back and slows things down. Fuchs is a liability at centre half and always has been, gave two goals away in champions league by losing his man and hasn't improved either.

Could we try Justin at RB and Ricardo RW? Looks like Justin can do a decent enough job and out wingers are the position that we need more from.

Ricardo best coming from deep. Has been tried on the wing and is poor overall (which is why he was possibly converted to a fullback). The answer in the short term is to put Gray or Albrighton in front of him. Gray may have influenced things a bit more yesterday rather than bringing an out of form Tielemans on. I think he and Nacho would have given them more to think about.

We are bound to be edgy after Sunday but whatever is occurring on the pitch, for the love of God let’s get behind them! The atmosphere is getting toxic again and it’s counter-productive. Then, before we know it, it’ll be like it was when Puel was here. 

 

As for the team, no idea at this point. Glad I’m not Brendan.

Totally agree with that sentiment, though Rodgers could probably help the situation by picking his most in form players if fit and play them in positions that they're best suited to and confident in.

If he attempted to do that on current form could he pick 11 player?!!

Drop Madders for YT for him to play number 10 role and have Praet at the bottom of the diamond. Vardy and Nacho as a 2 upfront. Gray and Albrighton wide 

Wide player with diamond and number 10?

Is this a suggestion Brendan should drop Perez in favour of Nacho? Or you feel there is more?

Despite my grumbling around Sunday's game (Where rather than trying for impossible shots I suggested Maddison should seek the pass, he was actually probably trying to get everyone up and moving)

He probably should sit this out, but just to give him rest.

Barnes as 10, Gray on the wing.

(gulp)

Such as what? As far as I can see over the past 5/6 games we’ve tried numerous combinations, all the kind of things people on here wanted to see and none of them worked.

 

eg play Hamza - did, went badly. Play Mendy - did, went badly. Play 352 - did, went badly etc

 

What are you advocating that we haven’t already tried?

May as well try something completely different. 

 

 

-------------------------Vardy

 

----------------------Maddison

 

Chilwell --------Preat-----Youri--------Ricardo

 

-------------Fuchs----Evans------Cags

 

------------------------Kasper

 

 

Bit like an X-wing formation?

🤣 in fairness you make a very good point. However, for example, I wouldn't persist with the ineffectual Perez out on the right, its utterly pointless, whereas Gray has had an effect when he's come on and played there. Hopefully Choudhury will be back and Iheanacho appears untouched by this spread of malaise and is busting a gut to prove himself.

A genuine must win.

 

But not only a must win, a must win with absolute dominance.

 

This lot need to show they are still up for it imo.

Partly. Yes Perez definitely out, utterly pointless out wide, for me he's only being picked on price tag and the fact he's a Rodgers buy. Gray in his odd short cameos has offered more in a few minutes than Perez all game. Iheanacho too I believe also fits that mould. Had Albrighton been given half the game time Perez has had he may well have adapted to the system and certainly offers more defensive stability. I'm sure if Rodgers sticks Maddison out on the left again it will just confirm a crass predilection for stubbornness. Iheanacho behind Vardy with Gray on the right and Albrighton on the left may be worth a try. 3 players gagging to impress that are unburdened with a lack of confidence.

We'll win this. The quality is there, we know that. Hopefully Brendan has an idea of what is wrong at the moment whether that be a drop in confidence or fitness levels etc. It's on him to sort it out
