Here’s a couple of stats to make you think as you head for you Saturday evening out which don’t make particularly comfortable reading for Irons fans.
Today’s dull and dreary draw against West Brom represented just the second time in 19 games that the Hammers have kept a clean sheet away from home.
And in terms of points we need to remember too that the team has now won only once in their past 11 games.
However the West Brom today’s goal-less draw means the Hammers have now only been beaten twice by the midlanders in 14 games.
Next up of course it’s Bolton Wanderers in the League Cup with Slaven Bilic claiming there’s much to build on from today’s result.
There will probably be few results at today’s outcome but it’s very cear that there’s a lack of pace in the team which will probably only be sorted when Manu Lanzini reappears
Horrible team to play away are West Brom and nobody looks forward to playing them because of the physicality and route one stuff and set piece execution.We did well to nullify them and certainly look more solid with a back 3 which has seen successive clean sheets.Missing Lanzini terribly as the creativity is in short supply as a result of this and the shored up defence.Happy with a point though because a lot of teams are going to leave the Hawthorns this season with nothing but bruises to show for their effort.
Agree, saw this live from close to the pitch:(
Who do you drop when Lamzini is fit ?
“won once in their last eleven games”
Huddersfield,Cheltenham,Burnley (end of last season) off the top of my head.
Are meaningless pre season friendlies included in there incorrect stats?
