  • Heung Min, there’s no need to feel down... (Spurs match thread 5 May)

    Oh my, and I've just welcomed my first grandchild into the world. A little boy. It doesn't get any better than this. ;biggrin
  • Smash Those Potters - Stoke (A) Match Thread 16.12.17 3pm


    Did David Moyes start the last three match threads.

    No, he did not.

    You are all welcome ;biggrin
  • Man City vs West Ham - Sunday, 3rd Dec, 16:00

    Given the car-crash performance most were predicting, how strange does it feel to be a bit gutted to have lost?

    Adrian - HAS to keep the shirt, or I'm starting the Moyes out thread.

    Arthur looks better and better at LMF.

    Well done Moyes for the tactics, and well done to the players for their efforts in carrying them out.

    ;quaver You've got Sam Allardyce, You've got Sam Allardyce ;quaver

    We sang to the Everton fans early on.

    ;quaver We need Sam Allardyce, We need Sam Allardyce ;quaver

    We sang after the 3rd goal.

    The Everton fans stood up and applauded.

    That was the nights highlight.
  • West Brom H - 2.1.18 - 7.45pm - Match Thread

    I’m happy with the result, but I’m afraid that Man City’s win might mean they’re now too far for us to catch, given the number of games left.
  • Moyes appointed - official

    What I’ve found particularly interesting already is how Moyes has added value to the side and how it’s evolved over his first five games. What has he done which we can confidently say is different to what Bilic would’ve done?

    His team selection for Watford was:

    Zabaleta - Reid - Ogbonna - Cresswell
    Noble - Obiang - Kouyate
    Arnautovic - Carroll - Lanzini

    A very ‘Moyes’ XI on paper. Square pegs in square holes, a target man, three grafters in midfield, experience, 4-3-3/4-5-1 system etc.

    Since then we’ve seen two major tweaks which I feel confident we wouldn’t have seen under Bilic. The first is the introduction of Masuaku as a winger (started 4 out of his 5 matches) and, despite IMO being a bit erratic, he’s clearly favoured by Moyes as he has stuck with him for all the games since Watford. Bilic played him occasionally, mainly as a LB or LWB, with the odd cameo further forward. Moyes has converted him to a wide midfielder. His directness and pace are big assets for us, given we lack both, and certainly have given us an outlet in recent weeks.

    Secondly, the major tweak has been this recent switch of Cresswell, from a LB to a LCB in the back 3. Another tactical switch I don’t feel Bilic would’ve incorporated. What it has allowed is Reid to move across from CB position No.2 to No.1 (right sided) and Ogbonna (the main change) to move to be the central CB of the three (as opposed to the LCB). Whilst it might be a slightly irrelevant change to many (does it make that much difference), it actually has made Ogbonna look a lot better because it’s covered his major flaw; decision making when getting drawn out to a wide area. That little corridor between Cresswell at LB and Ogbonna at LCB in a back four has caused many issues which have often resulted in Ogbonna giving away penalties. He is now shielded by two other players, with the added security of the wingbacks. So this little tweak which has shifted Ogbonna along one place and converted Cresswell to a LCB has made us look very solid against two exceptional attacking lines.

    The final obvious bit of added value has been Arnie, who I think we can all agree has had his best spell of performances since Moyes has taken over. Even his display at Watford was a marked improvement on what we saw under Bilic.

    There is also the inclusion of Adrian, something which may not have happened under the previous regime, but has certainly coincided with an upturn in defensive performances too.

    So the side has evolved since his first selection to:

    Reid - Ogbonna - Cresswell
    Zabaleta - Noble - Obiang - Masuaku
    Arnautovic - Lanzini

    The move of Cresswell to CB has been an inspired call. He’s not the first full-back to successfully convert to a CB in recent times in sides which play a back three/five. Azpilicueta of Chelsea, Monreal of Arsenal, Davies at Spurs. I think it gives the back three that added dimension when you can have a more aggressive and technically assured player playing as one of the three, otherwise you get into the trap of putting in three solid CB’s and you end up with loads of sideways passing and backpasses. That little Ogbonna/Cresswell-Noble/Obiang-Lanzini/Arnie group is linking a host of very competent ball players together to get us moving through the side, particularly in that central/left area of the pitch.

    Then there’s the obvious improvement in our running stats and sprints, suggesting the fitness and intensity is coming along nicely now.

    Really good things seen from the last couple of games in particular. It shows the manager can identify weaknesses and address them very quickly with different innovations but without adding any new players to the squad. Moyes can be proud of what he’s done already and lets hope it continues until May.

    And just to add, I may have been a bit too hasty in jumping the gun with relegation. The Everton result and display really did hit me quite hard. But I think there have been positives in all four of his other games, and certainly more signs for optimism than there were a few weeks ago.
  • Summer 2017 Transfer: The final countdown and the fallout

    Oh and Hamstew

    I ain't no mug for buying a season ticket! What I am is a long term supporter who puts her hard earned were her mouth is.

    I'll turn up and support my football club as I have done for the last 40 years regardless of what goes on during a transfer window, who the manager is and weather or not Diafra Sakho is a spoilt little child who needs a reality check.

    WHTID ;scarf
  • January transfer window

    Should give ginge a 2 year deal and a coaching deal for when he's finished IMO

    Perfect back up and he's great for the squad morale
  • Moyes appointed - official

    West Ham manager David Moyes has told Joe Hart that the club's Premier League survival is more important than the 30-year-old goalkeeper's international ambitions. (Daily Mirror)

    That must have been an interesting conversation along the lines of "I can't play you and risk getting relegated so I'll play Adrian and we'll have a better chance of survival. In any case I'm Scottish and don't give a monkeys who plays for England"
