Thread: West Ham on Saturday.

  1. #1

    West Ham on Saturday.

    We must select a more attacking side against West Ham on Saturday. Let's face it, they can't be relishing coming to the Hawthorns after their last few visits so let's 'go for the throat' right from the start. I'll select my XI now and hope that TP is of a similar mind set.

    Foster
    Nyom Dawson Evans Gibbs
    Krychowiak Barry
    Phillips Chadli Brunt
    Rodrigues

    Subs: Myhill McCauley Hagazi Morrison McLean Robson-Kanu Burke Livermore

    I realise that it's a bit of a risk playing Chadli but he terrorised them last year although I can't see TP agreeing with me on this one. Sorry, but I can't find a place for Rondon. That's not a bad bench either. Whatever side he selects it must not include three holding mid-fielders!

    I would go for a similar side, if he doesn't play Chadli I wouldn't be too disappointed if McClean played instead. What he lacks in quality he makes up for in legs and energy.

    I would definitely have Rondon as a sub, think its too early for McCauley.

    Slight difference from me this time Leicester. I know a lot of people on here are not fans of his but I would start with James Morrison instead of Chadli in the centre of the 3 as you have it.

    You're dreaming if you think Gibbs will be given a start until he's bulked up like Fatima Whitbread.

    The back four will be....Nyom,Dawson,Evans,Brunt,

    The holders will be the Pole and Barry,

    The forward three midfielders will be Phillips,Livermore,Rodriguez,

    All topped off with that pile of dung at CF.

    The team SHOULD be,

    Foster,

    Dawson,Hegazi,Evans,Brunt

    Barry

    Phillips The Pole chadli

    Can't see Chadli getting a look in again. I hope i'm wrong but it bleats on about quality in the final third then bombs him out.
    Wishful thinking 3,5,,1,1.
    Try something different.
    Foster
    Dawson, Hegazi, Evans
    Phillips,Barry Krychoviak, Brunt, Gibbs
    Chadli
    Rodriguez

    I have to admit that it was a toss up between Chadli and Morrison, as I am also a fan of his. The main reason for going for Chadli is that he has 'previous' against the Hammers.

    Assuming that all are available to play, I would go for this lineup

    Foster, Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs,
    Burke, Barry, Kry***, Brunt, Chadli, Rodriguez.

    Too positive for Pulis probably.

    It's very interesting looking at the sides various posters select. We all have differing opinions as to the personel but virtually to a man we all select a far more attacking side than the one that will probably be selected.

    I'd go:

    Foster

    Nyom Dawson, Evans, Gibbs

    Krychowiak, Barry

    Phillips, Chadli, McClean

    Rodriguez

    Subs: Myhill, Hegazi, Yacob, Brunt, Morrison, Burke, Robson-Kanu

    No place for Livermore or Rondon in the squad, in their present form.

    Very interesting point made above.

    We actually have the personel to play 3 at the back in Evans, Hegazi and Dawson. And wingbacks in Nyom and Gibbs. This would mean we could potentially play 2 up front..

    I still prefer 4-2-3-1, but its a thought.

    That's why I went with three at the back. We've all been brainwashed into this 4-2-3-1 formation. Because that's all he ever does. What that formation does is put 6 defenders around your own 18 yard box all the time. Which is what we've been seeing. Totally surrendering midfield and leaving no support to the front 1.
