A modified 3-5-2 formation West Ham should adopt for Arsenal clash

The West Ham lads travel to the Emirates today to play our old rivals, Arsenal. There is a sense of optimism of returning home with at least a point; Arsenal do not have much to play for in terms of the Premier League and are probably more concerned about an up-coming Europa League semi-final. The […]

Tactics: How West Ham can outclass Liverpool on Saturday

Amidst the doom and gloom that surrounds our club, West Ham welcomes Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to the London Stadium for the late Saturday game. Liverpool presently occupy 6th position in the Premier League, and left to their own devices, can beat nearly any team on their day.

West Ham return to the London Stadium on Saturday for a crucial encounter against Swansea City.

3-5-2, two strikers: The changes West Ham must make to beat Stoke

Following the disappointing loss to Everton, we are once again faced with the continuing challenge of goal scoring. We did have some good chances in the first 25 minutes or so, but failed to convert. From this moment, our midfield five lost its shape, players suddenly appeared static and we were reduced to pushing vertical […]

The tactic needed for West Ham to achieve top four dream…

For 90 pulsating minutes, West Ham and Arsenal put on a display worthy of an FA Cup final at Wembley. Ignore the final 3-3 final outcome, this was as close to ‘total’ football you might ever wish to see. There is very rarely an Arsenal side that could be called second-rate; Saturday was no different, despite a

Two formations West Ham should consider until the end of the season

For many of us, an unexpected element of luck comes our way during our lifetime. When we examine the overall history of our club, I think it only fair to say that luck has not always been on our side. However, when I awoke the other morning, it took me very little time to appreciate

The attacking formation West Ham need to brush aside Crystal Palace

With eight Premier League games remaining this season, it is imperative that we view each game as a winnable challenge.

The tactic to prevent West Ham from starting slowly in future

The most astute of West Ham observers have noticed a problem seen over the past month or so, which is our inability to start the game with a real intent of gaining control of the game and scoring early goals. I agree that we have had a recent problem of slow starts in the first

Playmakers and goal scorers: The three formations West Ham can turn to…

It was barely three weeks ago, following the Everton game, when we lost Dimi Payet and Enner Valencia; there was an almost reflex, pervasive sense of ‘doom and gloom’, all around the West Ham community. “How will we cope” seemed to be the reflected sentiment at the time. On November 23 I wrote about the

Should West Ham consider this change in formation?

My first thoughts in relation to a Scotty Parker’s suggestion that we are destined for a mid-table finish in the current Premier League season is that perhaps Slav has sown that he is ‘human’, after all. Our starting line-up against Spurs was clearly not right (no further arguments needed) – Carroll should not have started!
