I went to West Ham v Sheffield Utd on Sunday, did a bit of scouting seen as we play West Ham on Saturday.

They created enough good chances to win the game, but their finishing on the whole was very poor. They could easily have scored 3 or 4 but were let down by the final ball or a weak shot (sounds like us). But Sheffield Utd could also have scored more than once, so if you actually have a go at them and don't sit back you can create chances. They didn't really seem to like the press that Sheffield Utd put on them for most of the game (tho embarrassingly Sheffield Utd began time wasting after 11 minutes).

In terms of dangerous players, Creswell was frequently in space down the left but crossing wasn't great and Yarmalenko was the main one looking to create chances and cut in from wide. Felipe Anderson was okay at times, Declan Rice just seems to take the 'sit in front of the back four role and pass it two yards to a team mate'.

If we actually don't just sit back and try to defend for a 0-0 then we can get something. The mood among their fans was that of frustration as I think they've stalled a bit lately. No atmosphere at all in the stadium, other than a few rounds of applause there wasn't a single song all game from the West Ham fans. Speaking to a few of their fans on the way to the ground and they all hate it. The seats at the front behind the goal are set on scaffolding as they need moved out whenever athletics is on. The dugouts are about a mile from the pitch.
I hope you've sent your report to Steve Bruce for his consideration! ;)

To be honest after watching Sundays' game I can't see us beating anyone at the moment but will be pleased to be proved wrong.
Haha yes I think the same! At best we'll get a draw but we need some wins. We're averaging just under a point per game which would probably keep us up by the skin of our teeth but would probably be very close.

The only thing I missed from my West Ham scouting report is that Haller looked poor. Wasn't trying to make things happen or really making much effort, seemed a bit Shelvey like in that he'd just stand complaining to his team mates half the time. Sheffield Utd CBs didn't give him a sniff (they quite easily dealt with most balls into the box, West Ham must have had about 15 corners but they cleared most of them with ease).

Cheers. <ok> Only been a way for a while though. Not years. Havent we always been in a relegation battle? <laugh>
Could have sugar-coated it for you and said that under our new progressive forward thinking manager, whose flowing and expansive football had lifted us up to the giddy heights of 17th in the table but thought you would see through that!
<love> <cheers>

We're in a relegation battle but, fortunately, goal difference is keeping us out of the bottom 3!

If that Brighton penalty doesn't count as a clear and obvious error then I'm questioning why we have VAR at all....

Almost gives me hope that there might well be 3 worse teams than us!

I've seen a lot of atrocious performances by us over the last 10 years but that performance by Saints has just eclipsed all of them.

9-0 equals Premier League record!
