Valenicia back in strong line-up

stoke-line-up-graphicWell done Sam Allardyce – he’s gone for two up defying his previous ‘form ‘ of leaving returning formerly injured players on the bench!

He has thrown Enner Valencia straight into the action alongside Diafra Sakho as the Hammers look for a badly needed win against Stoke City.

It looks as strong a team as we can put out and Carl Jenkinson commented to whufc.com: “Hopefully we can keep a strong team between now and the end of the season and get on a good run.

“Hopefully we don’t concede two like we did at Stoke! We know they are a good side, I’ve watched them this season and I know they are a good team.

“They offer a lot and it’s going to be a tricky game, but we’re going to focus on ourselves and hopefully come out on top.”

  1. No excuses this time: our real first team at last.

  2. This our best line up, but it seems to be a Sam’s smart move to please fans and above all the owners. Anyway COYI!

  3. for me Tomks is marginally better than Ging, but they are both good enough to be first team.

  4. Tomiks not fit but I agree without him best team on paper,BFS trying to save his neck but would not want to be at dinner tomorrow when big Kevin is sulking,


  6. How much longer do we have to put up with Sam and his tactics of 1-0, shut up shop and concede in the dying minutes. Why can’t we just let him go now?

  7. Spring’s here, good time for gardening leave, enough is more than enough, out him

  8. You could just predict this so easily, early goal, didn’t add to it, more and more defensive, strikers replaced by midfielders, same old expectation try to hang on ……..and fail again !!!! We never learn Man U Spurs Everton now Stoke all points down the pan after 90 minutes.
