Make your mind up time for Slav!

Hernandez is different level

It’s going to be very interesting to see how Slaven Bilic sets up the team for Swansea without Michail Antonio given the events of last weekend and Spurs!

We need no reminding that he started with Hernandez up top, subbing Antonio with Carroll and thus returning to a shape we had become so used to. Situation normal!

Now we will see whether Carroll becomes Plan A again or whether the manager intends to stick with Hernandez at the peak of the attack and maybe bring in Diafra Sakho to partner him.

It wouldn’t be unfair to say that the boss often has us all visiting www.confused.com but should he really want to give Hernandez the leading role whilst keeping Carroll in the squad, surely it has to be in a 4-4-2.

He hasn’t started with that formation in any game I can remember but when he has been forced to introduce it during the course of the 90 minutes, we have usually looked a much more threatening outfit.

My money – given the manager’s track record – would be on him bringing in Carroll again – it appears to be the default position

If he does keep it as he intended for Spurs I believe Ayew is likely to be drafted in rather than Sakho who it seems mat still be on the naughty step.

That’s a shame because he is always a threat which is not a word that can be used in Ayew’s case.

Saturday afternoon’s selection is going to be very interesting indeed and Chicharito is set to get a big clue perhaps on where he really stands at West Ham.

  1. The more pressing issue is why the frig do i keep getting ads for bloody Brocolli on here?? I cant stand the stuff 😂

    • You,ve had it easy mate 😉 you should have tried to eat the shyte they served up in hospital
      All fekin week 😂 🐩🐈 💩 definatly no 🍺 😤

  2. Broccoli?? Isn;t he that Italian player they keep linking with a move to West Ham….?

  3. Rads, it helps with runs mate. Think it’s meant for Nobes!

  4. Play Byram in the right wing place he has played there for Leeds and would be a better option for defending
    Put Obiang back with Kouyate
    Leave the rest alone and hope the Ref is fair and the linesman not blind

    • Byram would terrorise Swansea on the right-wing, but I can’t see him being preferred to Ayew. Perhaps he didn’t cost enough lol.

  5. And play Arthur on the left wing so we can have 7 defenders on the field all at the same time? We will be the first team to play a 7-2-1 formation ever! The worlds gone mad I tell you, mad!

  6. Rads, make you right about the adds. Driving me mad. Get rid of one, start reading the post and up comes another. What’s happening to this site? Losing its attraction for me.
