      Pre Match : West Ham v Liverpool : 26th April, 19.45
      Apr 25, 2023 12:48:11 pm
      The games are coming thick and fast as the season draws to a conclusion.

      We have struggled all season away from home and the Hammers have come into a bit of form sitting 6 pts above relegation zone.

      Will we get the same front three who started on the weekend even though Gakpo had one of his less visible games.

      Will we see the same stodge in midfield or do we get some guile with Thiago.

      Yes Thiago does offer a bit of 'guile'. On the downside he isn't the best at covering, tracking etc. Also prone to the odd clumsy challenge. Could go Milner or Gomez at right back and go with Trent in mid. He would also offer decent cover. But might have to go Milly down the left.

      Ali....Gomez..Konte..VVD ..Robbo....Trent..Hendo. .Milner.....Mo..Nunez.Di az....1-2

      Parked the 'inverted' full back..ditto the 'floating' back three...too risky against West Spam..

      I think Diaz, Jota and Salah start front three. It will be Hendo, Thiago and Fab in midfield with Trent, Ibra, Virg and Robertson in the back.

      3-1 win for the redmen.

      Cant see too many changes for this, plenty time to rest. Early subs perhaps.

      I expect at least four changes for this one, looking back and looking ahead.

      Yep

      Think away from home it may well be

      Allison

      TAA
      Konate
      VVD
      Robertson

      Fabinho
      Jones or Elliot
      Thiago

      Nunez
      Jota
      Mo

      Another difficult game to predict, need another win to keep a winning streak. Agree Nunez should start alongside Jota and Mo.

      They played very well against Bournemouth and against Gent with Rice key in orchestrating their victories. We are obviously a better side and I back us to score but with an ancient midfield and the chances we gave away v Forest at home, who would bank on us not conceding?

      We could easily win but it could just as easily descend into a shitshow...who knows? Maybe that's the new form of excitement for us. The certain thrill of f*ck knows what's gonna happen. Get pints four, five and six lined up, a cheeky doobie if that's your thing. If it gets really sh*t, Rocket Ronnie is on the telly tonight.

      After the near miss with forest, I wont be expecting us to be back to our brilliant best v hammers. They've hit a bit of form so will be a tough game. I'm still backing us to win 1-3, but thats more withy heart than my head.
      Worried shitless to be fair, as we need to win ALL our games and hope others slip up, for us to get 4th.

      Still dreaming, and always will. Come on you MIGHTY RED MEN !

      Sounds like Konate may need to miss, so I guess that would be Matip. I do think Elliott comes on for this.

      What fills me with concern is that in the past few weeks West Ham have decided to be footballing bosses.

      What fills me with hope is "The Chosen One".

      I think we’ll score, just depends on how many we concede!

      I think Rice is a good player, would do very well under Klopp, but he would cost a fortune.

      It could be a case of trying to score more than we concede, there should be a few goals, hopefully in the right direction.

      Will be interesting to see how he copes with our midfield or should it be how we cope with theirs.

                     Alisson
      Trent - Matip - Virgil - Robbo
         Elliott - Fabinho - Thiago
          Salah - Nunez - Jota

      If Konate is fine to play then him instead of Matip.

      Don't see the point in playing Konate and risking a longer term injury.

      Ali; Trent, Matip, VVD, Robbo; Fabinho, Thiago, Jones; Mo, Jota, Diaz.

      Another knock. I think Matip has lost what little pace he had in the first place. Been a great signing but he's on his last lap here. If Konte doesn't make it Matip will be a risk. Gomez for me even tho he has had the odd nightmare game.

      3-1 win for the redmen.

      Wouldn't be surprised to see an unchanged XI, with Thiago, Diaz and Nunez coming on early in the second half.
