  1. I was disappointed yesterday , the performances need to improve . Lanzini was good , Fabianski should be a higher rating , Rice solid love the lad , , defence still needs work ! But I’m a hammers fan throwh & through and support my team , although I moan about them sometimes lol. However I think we will get better , we look off the pace and defence needs more work. The players need to understand Pelligrini better , keep the ball better no shoddy back passes and attack more as a team than the opposition don’t get in our box so often So come on lads heads up , show is all what you have got I know you can do it . Put it behind us and really step up against Watford , so want to beat them . Believe lads .COYI ⚒

    • Best/honest ratings of all the sites. Well done it really describes well the performances of all the players. Just wish Pelligrini can get a copy. We desperately need a defence overall….all out (maybe only keep Diop) and new defenders needed asap. • Just 2 queries … on the ratings – Masuaku was not that bad and did a few good offensive moves. I esp think he cannot be held responsible for the Var rejected goal. He had 2 players on his side, and in split-seconds must make drastic decisions. Frederick’s has no great offensive moves that lead to goal opportunities, give the ball away too often, and is not tuff defensively. Nothing Zab should play to ensure we stronger defensively. •Tricky I know…. therefore well done with the ratings. Thank. God bless.

      • This week’s ratings were based on 207 responses but some weeks they are based on up to 500 when the game is live on Sky or BT

        They are a mean average of all valid scores

      • So we keep Diop because he played well last year but not Ogbonna who also played well last year once he was given a bit of a run in the team, also Masuako is excused rubbish defending because of being exposed to 2 players yet Cresswell is criticised when he had no help against against 2 far superior marauding Man City players last week. It strikes me most of the comments are based on who people like not on performance and of course the chance to have a good moan!

  2. As the vote suggests Sanchez not popular? Therefore as i posted in a previous post should be paid off? And the 26 year old Serbian Nemanja Radoja a free agent and defensive midfielder should be signed up much much more of what the Hammers need????

  3. Great that Lanzini is coming back to his best. Why Valbuena was left out beats me! Diop may have had one of his worst games for some time, but he showed last season he is a good defender. When interviewed, he comes across as a young man who really cares for the club and his desire to improve is clear. But uncertainty can be catching. How is Diop supposed to play well when he is in a back four with Fredericks, Ogbonna and Masuaku? Valbuena and Diop together were solid last year. Put them with possibly the young left-footed Portuguese signing as a 3 with wing-backs with Rice and Noble/Zabaleta in front. Let’s get some solidity back and give Fabianski a chance to not have to make more saves than any other Prem keeper. I was listening to the commentary yesterday and by half-time I don’t think I’d heard the names Wilshere or Fornals mentioned. I’m sure Fornals can come good, but things seemed to improve when Antonio came on – why he gets left out I can’t understand. And we miss Noble – fact! Too many passengers. Too many luxury players. 3 points next week – we can do it!!!

  4. As the vote suggests Sanchez not popular? Therefore as i posted in a previous post should be paid off? And the 26 year old Serbian Nemanja Radoja a free agent and defensive midfielder should be signed up much much more of what the Hammers need???? Other sources on” west ham news now” saying west ham might be interested ?? (Get in there)

  5. Why doesn’t the board get Lanzini on a long term new contract.

  6. I watched the match on TV (in South AFrica yesterday) and thought that Sanchez wasnt actually that bad when he came on. So it seems he is just unpopular and will always get a bad rating. A number of fans on here are calling for 3 at the back – it is not a bad suggestion, but I believe that it will not happen under Pellegrini

    Anyway he is the manager so let us see how he tries to put things right for Watford

  7. I know we don’t want to keep tinkering but I agree with a lot of what Good Ole Daze said. If Cardoso is ready, 3-5-2 might work well. For two reasons. Firstly, we have poor full-backs but Masuaka and Fredericks (or Antonio more likely?) might do well as wing-backs. Secondly, we need to play with two strikers and this is the only way to accommodate them. I also think Zaba could do a job in CM in this system – he did it for City at our place in one of the hammerings they gave us. I want to see Haller and Hernandez up front together. This might not leave room for luxury players like Anderson and Fornals, but it’s what we need to get results!

  8. Of course Wilshere may have just had a shaky start in the first two games. He has hardly played for a season. He is trying to fit in with new colleagues. He may not be quite sure of what Pellegrini wants ( would not be alone there-even Pellegrini seems unsure about that). I am not a great Wilshere fan, and I think that a player who is still ‘injury prone’ at his age will probably always be. But don’t write him off yet. He may still have quite a bit to offer.

  9. Wilshire from what I have seen is almost finished. He’s lost the ball on so many occasions in just over one full game of play. He then fails to make any cohesive effort to retrieve the ball back strolling around as though it’s a friendly . Sad to say it but we can’t risk playing him alongside Rice. Pellegrini is going to have to rethink his formation perhaps start with two up top. Lanzini out wide on the left and Anderson or Fornals on the right. Snodgrass can sit alongside Rice. It’s not the ideal pacey line up but we need better cover in midfield. Snodgrass is to slow to be a winger but allows him to swap with the wide men every now and then

  10. As I said before players get criticised because they are not liked but they don’t become bad players overnight they mostly just have good and bad games. Wilshire played quite well in pre-season just hasn’t quite got back to prem levels yet. Everybody was moaning about Lanzini in the first game, now he’s brilliant! Cresswell is a good defender and can put good crosses in but like Ogbonna, Sanchez, etc they need regular games to get up to speed. We desperately need Noble back but we all know if he has one bad game everyone will be saying he needs to retire. Fab had a really good season last year but I think Noble was our most important player, he brings an extra dimension to the team and has a massive influence on the other players especially Rice and is as good if not better than Lanzini in spotting and playing through balls. We may only reach 8th or 9th this year but I think the football will be exciting and good to watch.
