Hammers face crucial clash as old fears emerge

The Hammers are facing a crucial clash on Sunday afternoon against Everton as all the old fears emerge.

After conceding 12  goals in our last five Premier League games and failing to win in our last three at PL and Europa level the old worries start to furrow brows.

Last night demonstrated too that the second string players aren’t good enough with CandH Facebook member Michael Miller reminding us that Danny Ings, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma were all hooked after very poor performances.

It was explained to us afterwards of course that several of those included had not had many minutes this season and that in itself tells the tale.

They are not considered good enough by and large and therefore we have a squad which does not offer realistic PL starting eleven options.

Beating Everton is an absolute must or I fear there will be some real noise being raised across the supporter base.
