Soucek

None

1) Would you start with Rodrigo?
Yes. Probably can only manage 60 minutes though. We need his class and guile.

2) Would you have Berardi & Poveda on the bench?
Why not? Berardi has come through 2 U23 halves and Poveda looked on the pace in his half the other day.

3) Your starting XI
Meslier, Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Dallas, Llorente (DM), Raph, Klich, Rodrigo, Harrison, Bamford

Your preferred choice of player

a) Rice or Phillips? Phillips
b) Soucek or Klich? Right now, Soucek
c) Antonio or Bamford? Bamford

5) If you could pluck one Hammers player out of their current team, who would it be?
Antonio

6) How impressed are you with David Moyes this season?
Done a very good job, and seems to have redeemed himself at West Ham after his dismal failure at Scum.

7) Your favourite memories of games at Upton Park?
Never been to a game away at Wet Spam.

As per my comments in the game thread.

9) Will we gain our first victory in London since the 2017/18 season?
Unlikely, but something in my bones says a rare draw for us.

10) Your predicted score?
Have it down 2-1 to WH.

1) Would you start with Rodrigo?

No

2) Would you have Berardi & Poveda on the bench?

Yes with Rodders on in the 2nd half

3) Your starting XI

Mesler
Ayling Llorente Cooper Dallas
Phillips Struijk
Raphinha Rodrigo Harrison
Bamford

Your preferred choice of player

a) Phillips?
b) Soucek
c) Bamford?

5) If you could pluck one Hammers player out of their current team, who would it be?

Soucek, a defensive midfielder who scores goals, Hammers top scorer with 8 goals, was impressive at ER & until the arrival of Lingard was West Ham's top-rated player. All round type midfielder, imagine how much tighter defensively we'd be with Soucek alongside Phillips?

6) How impressed are you with David Moyes this season?

Excellent, lets hope he isn't lured into another supposedly top job for his own sake

7) Your favourite memories of games at Upton Park?

Tony Yeboah's thunderbolt that could have broke the net. I was right behind the goal, had TY missed the target his shot would have knocked my block off :lol:

Dreadful dated formatted site. The Hammers Kumb.com sit is much more user friendly & what you'd come to expect reading a football forum.

9) Will we gain our first victory in London since the 2017/18 season?

West Ham are a very good side, our London hoodoo is a major concern plus the fact we struggle to break teams down who are defensively savvy, fingers crossed we can come away with something from this game.

10) Your predicted score?

Lets hope we do what we did to the Foxes. 1-3

Imagine having a Yeboah in our team?

You wouldn't have to walk the ball into the net with Tony around, he was lethal from the goal line to 30 yards out 8-)

To combat West Ham's two DM's, we go with Phillips & Struijk

Also plenty of height at the back to deal with their aerial threat

Meslier
Ayling Llorente Cooper Dallas
Phillips Struijk
Raphinha Rodrigo Harrison
Bamford

If we manage to play that team, we should give a good game. Solid (as long as Struijk doesn't get in the way of KP).

That team would allow Rodrigo to have a free role.

Bielsa won't go with that team, unfortunately he'll stick with the out of form/maybe injured Klich & Roberts who produces nothing apart from the odd fancy flick. We need to strengthen the midfield up or else the Hammers will overrun us in that department.
