HT: Hammers 0 Swansea 0

antonio2707abcThe Hammers were second best again this season with Swansea dominating possession -though it was of little use to them – throughout the first 45 minutes.

But what was truly worrying AGAIN was the Hammers’ inability to stop surrendering possession and to start picking out men with accurate passing.

The game got off on exactly the right note with Antonio testing the Swans keeper with a volley he did well to save.

But it was downhill all the way from there with the Irons being penned into their own half with the the visitors controlled things with the extra man in midfield.

The Irons pushed forward for the first time close to half time with every attack coming down the left but if ever a game is screaming out for some real skill in the shape of Lanzini it’s this one.

A mixture of anger and frustration led to the team being booed off at half time.

  1. Unbelievably clueless

  2. Sorry but Bilic has to go his tactics have become terrible. I’m tired of this Carroll parade about how he’s unstoppable on his day. It is so rare I’ve watched us start with Carroll and I can say we’ve played well. The type of forward he is is dinosaur in the game, he’s just not cut out to play the lone forward role from the start and we always just look so disjointed with him in the side. However, bring him off the bench as a plan B is an effective way to use him like we did against everton away and chelsea home two seasons ago.

    As for bringing Lanzini on for noble is ridiculous. Bringing our most creative player who should be playing between the lines to bring some flow to our game and instead plays him as a defensive midfielder alongside kouyate with no positional sense comlpeting removing any protection in front of the back four.

    Sorry but Bilic is too overboard with attacking threat with his selection and there is just no balance in the side.

  3. Oh shut up you pair of plastics!!
