Ex names Hammers squad for FCSB

David Moyes – as he revealed in his pre-match presser -has taken a young and very much back up squad to  Romania for tonight’s game against FSCB in the final Conference game of Group B.

As revealed earlier the boss is relying on this squad to create history by making the hammers the only team to have won every game at this stage of the competition.

As he explained the bulk of the squad has been left at Rush Green with nine academy player in the squad along with Conor Coventry.

It’s an ideal opportunity to blood one or two from the start as the Hammers head into a final game having already assured themselves of missing the round of 32.

ExWHUemplyee has named the squad which he understands has travelled for the game as: Areola, Randolph, Hegyi, Aguerd, Ashby, Casey, Clayton, Coufal, Coventry, Downes, Forbes, Fornals, Forson, Johnson, Lanzini, Mubama, Ogbonna, Orford, Scarles, Swyer.

  1. I am all for giving the youth a chance, but there are too many named here for my liking. I suppose it is a case of Moyes being blamed whatever he does, but I would like to see more first teamers in the starting line up together with a couple of the youth – bearing in mind the chance of winning all six of our games – & then, bringing on a couple more youths IF we are looking comfortable in the second half.

    • I think you are spot on with your comment. I think most fans would agree with you. I personally think he has gone over the top here,, 4/5 young players would have been enough. I know he wants to rest pkayers for weekend which I understand but players like antonio and Benrahma should have been brought. Big game at weekend !!! I would not like to be in Moyes shoes if we lose, enormous pressure building on him and deservedly so for his negative approach to games. The fans have had enough of his team selections which have cost us points in nearly every game.

  2. Knock
    There will be. Only one out and out stricker 8n that squad which limits us. Pity Marshall is there but he hasn’t shone enfor the u21’s since going up a level after his exploits at u18.
    I think it will be a defensive line up with 3 right backs and only Clayton as a left back.
    Hope Ashby plays as he is better than Coufal and Johnson.
    Think Scarles and Mubama may start as the only genuine u21

  3. That’s what I thought. Can so many youngsters be named for this evenings game? I would have thought each squad for any tournament has to be named before the tournament starts.
