Half time report: Baggies 0 Irons 0

Pedro scored his first ever Hammers game

It was pretty pretty tame fare but the Hammers won’t be bothered about that having cruised through a pretty comfortable 45 minutes.

Obiang created the best chance when seeing Foster creeping off his line attempted a long range lob which hit the crossbar.Antonio brushed aside several challenges before turning nd firing only to see his shot saved.

Albion had a couple of chances but Morrison headed the first wide from 8 yards before curling a shot wide.¬†The Irons¬†need to get the ball into Antonio’s feet a lot more as he is always a big menace.

The Hammers have kept their shape defensively but there has been little threat from the Baggies and hopefully we will see more from the team second half.

Hernandez still looking like a fish out of water out wide and Carroll has not had the aerial service he required. In four words: Little quality so far.”

  1. A good bore draw absolutely controlled play for 90 of the 95 minutes but toothless up front, a lot of work needs to go on with Carroll and Hernandez they should be a good partnership but at this stage look like strangers, both are a goal threat in different ways but they have not come up with a solution yet, personally I think too often there is too much distance between them most of the time and Carroll looks just to win the headers when if he and Hernandez were closer together and making consistent moves he could nod it into space for Hernandez. Either way a point at the Hawthorns is always a good point, Bilic should take note that when Collins went off and the formation changed the Baggies started pressing the ball where up until that point they allowed us to play in front of them, hopefully Ginge injury is not too bad, Ayew didn’t do much but Sakho was a thorn in their side for the last 15 minutes, it is clear we are lacking players that can play Hernandez in and that was my only major concern from this game COYI !!!

    • Lanzini is missed another creator #10 be nice and Chic shouldn’t be on LW. Obiang almost had a wonder goal good chance he took. And still not sure about Arnie
      But that game was ours to take in 2nd half but didn’t. Needed a win but take a draw.

  2. No Lanzini,no play..
