West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

Recommended Posts

Klopp said "we'll see" regarding Thiago. That usually means no, but it's not an outright "he's not playing" so there's a chance. Anyway, if there's no opportunity to rotate in fresh blood like Matip or Thiago, this will be really hard.

 

We've basically had the same midfielders and defenders playing for a while, with games in close proximity of one another. The fact we've had to finesse Wijnaldum and Henderson with 45 minute increments here and there to prevent them from overplaying because we have few other options is very much not ideal. Could easily see a draw or loss.

West Han without Antonio is good for us. He's a good player so a piece of good fortune there.

 

This feels like one of those that if we get a scrappy 2-1 it will be brilliant. Just 3 points. Would love Matip and Thiago playing but most of all want them fit for the blue Mancs.

This is the exact game we need to see if Williams has it or not.

 

We need to make a big decision in January and this kid may as well be used until then.

It'll be

 

--‐---------Allison------------

Trent-Williams--Gomez-Robbo

-‐-‐-Hendo--Gini--Milner-----

---Salah----Bobby----Mane---

 

 

Makes sense to protect a somewhat reshuffled back 4 with the defensive nous and workrate of that midfield. Unfortunately it blunts our attack too. Hopefully Shaq can provide us with a spark if needed.

Klopp hoping Matip might be fit for City

 

So he misses West Ham and Atalantal

 

Why we thought we could rely on him as our 3rd CB or give him a new deal at a reported 100k a week is strange. He has played in about 50% of our games since he got here. 

 

 

Good defender when fit but not fit close to often enough to warrent the wages

He's far more than 'good' when he plays,he's usually excellent at least. His free transfer is probably why there is no drama about getting rid of him at all. He is our second best centre half,when fit,so it's a calculated gamble.

If we're truly not playing Matip (who is allegedly medically fit), then I'll be surprised if Nat Phillips doesn't play vs West Ham today.

 

He was on the bench ahead of Rhys Williams last weekend. And he would have played in the CL if he'd been registered. Being the more experienced player, I reckon Klopp goes with Phillips today.

I think that's more likely too.  Especially as we'll probably need Rhys to play midweek.

Once went to see Leeds v West Ham at Elland Road, late 80’s probably. 
 

Got the train back to Wakefield and headed down the car park for a post match pint at the Elephant and Castle Pub (still just about surviving today). A large group lads were standing outside, assumed they were just local Leeds fans so thought nothing of it. 
 

Turned out they weren’t Leeds fans as I found out when a chant of ‘ICF’ began, pint glasses started flying and general  carnage ensued. 

 

I don’t like West Ham. Smash ‘em Reds.

I'd go with Jones instead of Milner for the fresh legs.

They're clearly being careful so he can play against City, but his first month at the club has been aids.

Dangerous game putting Phillips and Jones in.  Feels ominous.  The Thiago thing feels like Klopp covering up a worse injury.

 

If it was serious, He would have ruled him out.
