                             Alisson
           Trent Gomez Virgil Robbo
               Oxlade  Fabinho  Keita
                Salah Firmino Mane


      Monday night football,  home banker, V Moyes Hammers, I'm smiling already,  only question is by how many, the score don't really matter just as long as it's 3 points,and it will be,

      Gonna miss the skipper for best part of a month so I'm bedding in Keita t
      o give him game time, plus Gini has been off kilter recently so extra rest Will do him no harm,

      Can't see anything other than a convincing win and another step closer,

      OK fair enough, better shot taking right backs in our league, you may have a point there, perhaps Kyle Walker although he's more of bursting run then neat cross type of player, by God that lad is rapid though. Thinking about I think my gripe is more aimed at Robbo who almost always looks to pass the ball instead of shooting and more often that not if he does take a shot its a bit sh*t, he is however very good at crossing the ball and all other aspects of being a fullback, but if he could just add more shots and goals to his game he'd be sensational.

      I think Robbo's low ratio of shooting come from the fact he gets down the line and likes to get a cross in. If he cuts in, the angle is often very tight. If he played on the right and cut in onto his left foot, like Mo, he would be more consistent, but with Trent on the right, he's better left alone where he is.
      Anyway, just for the hell of it, Im going for a 3-0 win, and Mo, Bob and Robbo to get one each  :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

      West ham in a bit of bother given their poor form over the past couple months and we should be looking to bounce back after lost in Madrid.

      Could see a couple changes but I think we will put out very strong XI, hopefully we can have very professional performance, put away a few goals and take one more step to the title.


      ---------------------------Alisson----------------------
      TAA---------Gomez---------VvD---------Robbo
      -----------Ox----------Fabinho-------Ketia--------
      -----Salah-----------Firmino-----------Mane----

      Subs: Adrian, Lovren, Milner, Gini, Lallana, Minamino, Origi

      4-0 Come on you reds!!!

      Just been reading this about West Ham's allocation tonight. Absolutely incredible

      https://www.hammers.news/club-news/report-lifts-lid-on-how-west-ham-owners-have-upset-fans-yet-again/

      "David Sullivan has reportedly upset West Ham United fans yet again ahead of the trip to Liverpool on Monday night. West Ham supporters have been protesting against Sullivan, fellow co-owner David Gold and their vice-chairman Karren Brady this season. Disaffected fans are deeply unhappy with the way the club has been run and the lack of progress during the owners’s 10-year tenure, but Hammers fans continue to back the team in their numbers by packing out the 60,000 seater London Stadium every other week as well as filling away ends with their famous travelling support.

      West Ham fans are planning another protest at Anfield by wearing black and releasing black balloons & will take just 1,800 fans to Anfield. It is the first fixture this season the East London club has not taken up the full away allocation – in this case 3,000. And a new report from The Daily Mail suggests West Ham did not take up the full 3,000 allocation for Anfield to spite the protests. When pressed on the issue, The Daily Mail reports that Sullivan told protest group Hammers United they would have to come up with a bond or around £36,000 to cover any unsold tickets if they took the full allocation.

      “Sports Agenda can also disclose that, following a complaint, co-owner David Sullivan wrote to independent fans’ group Hammers United and told them if they could provide a bond for the extra 1,200 tickets (the small matter of £36,000 that would be returned if the tickets were sold) then West Ham — in the top 20 of the world’s richest clubs — would ask for them. How generous,” The Daily Mail reports.

      “Club insiders insist that the reduced allocation is purely down to demand, deny it has anything to do with the protest and say returns have been made available.”

      The claims will do Sullivan and co no favours at all with West Ham fans."

      With Fabinho being out I'd say that Gini has been covering more of a breaking up play role - and been allowing Henderson to do a bit more attacking.  No surprise therefore that Jordan has been in the right areas a couple of times to add a few goals.  Couple that with Oxlade-Chamberlain getting more of a game - one of the midfielders has to do some of the ugly stuff.

      I would have said with Fabinho returning we may have seen a more attack minded Wijnaldum, but now Henderson's out as well so that may have to go on hold.

      I don't think he's been playing horribly - I just think he's been doing a job that isn't particularly glamorous.

      That's the thing with our MF.
      Good players doing jobs that need doing, but which don't catch the eye.

      If Gini doesn't perform his role well, Robertson doesn't get forwards half as much.

      Lets hope it's a routine home win , no grief or injuries, no VAR balls up. Probably won't go 5 or 6 as the boss might coast it if we go 3 clear.

      Mane hasn't quite got going since his mini lay off. Expect Mane & Mo to run rings round WH.

      Even against opposition as weak (on paper) as West Ham, don't think JK would be gung ho enough to start both Keita & Ox.  One or the other, I suspect.

      a few beers a bit of exercise getting off the sofa and going to the fridge and back what could be better. Just want the lads to do what they have done now for two seasons give us everything added to a bit of magic with a loud and raucous Anfield and it will be the perfect way to spend a Monday night.

      It's been a long time and- but Trattoria Fidelia is/was a good Italian place - Luneberger Street 390, Berlin. Looks like it's 3 minutes away from LIR by car.

      Feel for the Hammers fans,  having to put up with those Shyster owners, practically evicted from their home at the Boleyn ground into a soulless bowl of what essentially was a athletics track, just so they didn’t have to spend Millions on a new shiney stadium, then compound it by not backing any manager who has had the mis fortune to be hired by said Shysters,

      No wonder the fans are Pissed Off, Sullivan, Gold and that f***in Bitch Brady are happy enough wallowing in the funds from the premier league & tv money, but their ambition of taking WHU up a level or two are as feeble as the bubbles blown out each week from that machine, they fade away and die, something the Hammers will no doubt hope that happens to them.


      Anyhoo....I’m up for making them feel even worse by giving them a severe f***in pasting  tonight...
