Slaven Bilic dropped a massive bombshell by going without a natural striker for the crucial game against Swansea.
Here’s how ClaretandHugh’s Facebook group members responded.
O We’re down, Bilic gone,
O So much want to get behind the team today, then I see the team sheet…why aren’t we going to upfront and trying really do for it
O Trying to stay positive BUT!!?!
O Clearly Carroll and Sakho not 100% and ready to start….now comes the whole ‘was Ayew bought as a striker’ argument again
O Ayew was a panic buy that has turned into a massive flop
O Chance for Snodgrass and Ayew to prove themselves. make or break time as Irons?
O Game we have to win and we start with no striker ?
O Massive game, my heart will always say a Hammers win but my head tells me we will be lucky to draw, hope I’m wrong. Back 5 looks so weak!
O This will be interesting to say the least. If neither Sak nor AC are fit enough for 90 mins I feel for Slav. I suppose he could given then a half each but i guess he’s hoping we will be OK in the 1st half and bring both on if we need them s half?
O I’m actually in utter disbelief at that line up. It’s obvious AC and Sak aren’t fit. But I’d rather have Antonio up front and play Ayew wide. At least we know Antonio can score when he’s up there
Not sure how we won that . What is Bilic doing . If Sakho and Carroll not fit they should not be on the bench . Terrible news about Antonio but what a result …, NO NOBLE for 2 games .That on its own should make sure we are safe ! COYI
Can you make a comment without slagging off Noble, you complete moron. We won so the Facebook people can quite frankly f off.
I have an opinion and that is that Noble is total sh1 te and Bilic is tactically bereft of any plan B . I really don’t care what you think …
Agreed Shaun. If people haven’t got anything decent to say, shut up. Bilic is working with what he’s got. The team surprised me too but the gamble paid off. Look what happens when you risk players…. Antonio. This gives Carroll and Sakho another week of training/rest. Onwards and upwards. COYI
Yes Bubbles you are entitled to your opinion but do you have to remorselessly repeat yourself?
