West Ham v Liverpool


Rory Fitzgerald

Recommended Posts

No Suarez for us, no Carroll for them.

 

West Ham almost 2/1 to win this with us favourites at 7/5.

 

They are 3 points ahead of us in 8th and will go ahead of them with any kind of win given the goal difference.

 

Reina

 

Wisdom Skrtel Agger Johnson

 

Lucas

 

Allen Gerrard

 

Sterling Shelvey Enrique

 

 

2 areas

 

1. Matt Jarvis is likely to start on the left side for them so that would pit him up against Wisdom. Wisdom is not the most adventurous of full-backs so there may be no harm having him on that side and remain disciplined. Let us go down our left and have Johnson and Enrique on that side.

 

2. Lucas vs Nolan. Nolan could be playing off Cole and he's scoring at a rate of 1 in 3 in the league. Ideal game that we need Lucas in for with that threat from deep. Whilst he is a great intercepter and tackler, he'll need to be tracking his runs.

 

Hopefully Gerrard has his shooting boots on. Hit a few at Jaaskalinen and drill Shelvey to look for follow ups.

Nolan is/was a massive LFC fan. He' s a liverpool lad. Cant beileve clubs make these gross mistakes of letting a player of that quality leave for free from the youth set-up. Think he s massively under-rated and can deliver at a big club.

i would go 3 at the back for this

 

its fat sam so we know whats coming - balls hoofed at us from all angles all day, cole and nolan are good in the air thats why i would play an extra centre half

 

also with suarez out i dont see the point of playing 433. a switch to 352 will get the job done in this one.

this formation gives us the freedom of enrique and johnson bombing on to support sterling and shelvey when we have the ball and when

 

we dont have the ball shelvey can drop back into midfield to give us an extra man

 

i fancy us for the win here 2-1 with shelvey to score

I think his all round game is gash but he's a decent finisher and a massive pain in the ass.

Ref - Probert :hmm: Assistants Beck and Child ( ran the line in the recent Utd match where Shelvey was sent off )

 

I like that line up but i'd have Sterling through the middle, Enrique and Johnson down the wings

West Ham could line up like this - though Diame could get in there as well. How are these 3 points ahead of us ? They're only home defeat was Arsenal this season. This is gonna be a classic 'we'll dominate possession but won't be able to convert the chances'.

 

 

Jaaskelainen

 

Demel Collins Reid O'Brien

 

Noble Tomkins

 

O'Neil Nolan Jarvis

 

Cole

352 for me. Allen and Lucas protecting, Shelvey CM but with licence to push forward, Johnson and Enrique getting up to provide width and Gerrard just off Raheem.

 

Reina

Carra Skrtel Agger

Johnson..........................Enrique

Lucas Shelvey Allen

Gerrard

Sterling

Some players take years to develop ( by this, i mean in their mid 20's to a level where others were at 18 ). He was 14.

I think we will. There seems to be this stupid (wider footballing public) perception that we're a team that's wobbling whereas the 'appy 'ammers are flying. Our players are all far superior to theirs and we are in quite a good (cough) moment. At the moment.

 

Expecting a draw. Think there's a chance if we have Sterling through the middle and will pull their defence around before slipping him through. Enrique should have a fair amount of joy, too, but as seen against Udine, it's the final pass or killer instinct that is lacking

 

Interesting to see how the first team plays without Suarez.
