West Ham v Arsenal the new official next match thread

Well after the Southampton debacle we need to bounce back to winning ways.
The Hammers tails will be up after the Chelsea win but they are a fickle bunch and we should turn them over.
Will wenger ring the changes and start with Potters wish of Giroud partnering Lacazette .
Can he please me and drop Xhaka.
Who will play at the back.
Whatever happens nothing but a win will do.

I agree with you about Xhaka but he plays every game so AW must like him. As for who will play at the back it will be the usual if Mustafi is fit. If Andy Carroll plays he will scare the life out of our snowflakes I wish Tony Adams and Steve Bould were twenty years old again.

The reason that I want to see them together is to try playing a litle more direct, to have two players moving around high up ther pitch doing scissor cross overs and dragging defences around. Currently it's too easy do drop back form a wall and lets us try to thread balls to a player surrounded by half a dozen defenders, There are times when we need to be more direct afterall it worked fro Radford and Kennedy.

the table shows exactly what we are,
a team not good enough any more for the top 4.
there is something seriously wrong with that team,
for me it is not a question of who is playing upfront
or playing which system,
there is no movement and the passing is too slow and not precise enough, the basic things.
All they can do is ask for more money,
they can f*ck off, frustrating

It's the incompetent way that they're set up to play. Just playing through the motions with no urgency.Time for many to go starting with the manager.

Us or the club !?
It comes to something when you of all of us have finally turned to see the light.
I argued vehemently against Kroenke on the old board and called out our custodians as traitors to the cause. I get no satisfaction from knowing that I was right. Their running off with Kroenke's money and his lack of investment in his other franchises was there for all to see. I remember the one voice that argued for him was old pink hat Sierra herself . I wonderif she had any clout with the board and where she is today.

Not us potter the Club. After the final whistle I noticed something unusual our players went to our fans applauding them but the fans just sat there not applauding back or even abusing our players.

Strange reaction indeed,
but when I read your comment I remember that I also had some strange feelings after the Southampton game,
usually whenever we score there is a shout of joy,
but when Giroud scored I did not show any reaction, because I was so disappointed to watch that crap.
After the Westham game I was just angry, I could not believe that we played the same sh*t again.

At the final whistle last night like you GG I was livid by the way we played we just don`t seem to be able to change our tactics when the way we are playing is not getting us anywhere. I got even madder when I switched over to the news and I saw that the Government had been defeated in Parliament over the Brexit Bill.

The worm has turned and someone with some clout needs to take him to one side and tell him to step down. The only person that I can think of with that amount of kudos is David Dein . Perhaps the last great thing he could do for the club would be to persuade him to step aside , he bought him in , maybe he should tell him to go !
