Moysie must show faith in hat-trick hero Mipo

ClaretandHugh’s exclusive blogger Ray Stewart gives his opinion on this afternoon’s game

David Moyes will have been working on different approaches to this game all week for today’s game and it’s impossible to talk in terms of a strict formation.

It could be a 5-4-1 at various times or a 3-5-2, anything depending on the game circumstances.

But one thing is for sure, David really should have Mipo Odubeko on the bench after his hat-trick against Manchester United under 23s this week.

The lad was given a debut at Old Trafford in the fifth round FA Cup and has been around the squad for some time so after scoring three times in the game on Friday he needs to be shown there is a real belief in him.

I hope Oggy is back at central defence and if he is fit that could happen as Moysie has a habit of putting players straight in as he did Arthur last week.

It could be that’s what he does and there must be a possibility that Issa Diop could find himself in midfield allowing Tomas to get forward as he sits with Nobes.

Up front I believe Bowen will do a great job if the manager decides that’s the way he’s going. He scored as soon as he came on last week and although he has been out of form over a few games he’s now coming back to his best.

We all know Leicester are a fine side but the Hammers are right up there with them this season and I think they have what it takes to beat them

  1. Not going to disagree, but doesn’t the various covid training bubbles separate the first team and the others?

    • His 2nd goal was superb, that said in U23s shoot from range a lot get less of that in PL, his 3rd we very good tight angle with left foot through players to bottom left corner very good finish. If we had cover I’d of sent on loan in January. I wouldn’t start ahead of Bowen been great, like to have in bench but then it Moyes doenst use he gets no mins. In U23s he is at least play. He is a talent but needs it play now too. Also have 16yo Mubama scored think brace & assists in U18s they play 4231 a lot too.
      Really need to start getting our academy back on track, think that includes having style across age groups & also smart loans which we don’t always do. I think Anang could be better then Trott & could of loaned him out this season had Suitors.
