Our Predicted Lineup For West Ham With Four Ruled Out


This is the team we think Steve Bruce will select for tomorrow’s match at West Ham. We have two changes from Sunday’s draw against Wolves and both are in the midfield pairing.

One of these changes is forced with Sean Longstaff receiving a straight red meaning he will sit out the next three matches. We think that Isaac Hayden will come straight back into the side after his three-game ban has ended.

We also see Matty Longstaff being dropped for Jonjo Shelvey. While we don’t necessarily think that should happen, we feel Bruce is going to go with Shelvey for his set-pieces and expansive passing range.

Other than those two, we believe Bruce will keep the same lineup as against Wolves. Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez will deservedly keep their places at center-back.

We don’t see Bruce changing the front trio of Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, or Miguel Almiron just yet. Though he may be inching closer to replacing Joelinton with either Andy Carroll or Dwight Gayle.

The substitute’s bench should look something like this with three decent options in attack.

Darlow, Krafth, Dummett, Ki, Atsu, Gayle, Carroll

    I wouldn’t comment on the Shepherd’s morals and if I was looking for a person with perfect morals, I wouldn’t look to a football person.
    However before Sir John and Freddie took over this wreck of a football club, we we’re definitely going into the lower leagues never to return, in a shanty of a stadium and support that had given up.
    Without the master stroke of appointing Keegan. We wouldn’t have the stadium we have, the great memories of a fabulous team and because of that team, the belief that with a decent owner we can get back there. We came from nowhere last time and it should be much easier from where we are.
    To summarise; please don’t knock Freddie Shepherd unless you’ve never sworn of called someone a bad name in your life!

    @ Charlie in the Gallowgate ? your post about the breakdown of the Finances during our previous owner. Best post I have read on this forum ever.

    Ashley is an a**hole, but the finances are better now. And indeed, when Freddy and Hall left we were on our way to follow Leeds down the drain. It has only taken them 20 years to get back up.

    As for an owner that cares, taking out 7 million a year from a sinking ship is a joke. It is called asset stripping.

    As my fellow Swede Zlatan said, no one owns a football club to make money. It is a passion.

    OK, my predictions last week were fairly accurate so I’ll try again. This week, I think that the bottom seven teams will all lose, i.e. Wolves, Villa, Everton, NUFC, Soton, Norwich and Watford which would mean that there will be no change in the points or positions from 14th to 20th.

    I know I’m not really sticking my neck out there so I’ll add that I think Manure will finish the weekend in the middle of the table, about tenth.

    swemag,
    Apart from the odd game and that fifth place finish, what makes our time over the last 13 years any more enjoyable than Leeds. We may well have been bought by the Leicester owners, the Arabs might have came in and bought us at a knocked down price, please don’t point to Leeds as an example of what could have happened as you simply don’t know what might have happened after that.

    We didn’t know it at the time but Mike Ashley was the worst thing that could have happened to us.

    If I wanted to support a company with great finances it wouldn’t be a football team it would be Amazon or Microsoft.
    The fact remains; we wouldn’t have the club as it is now without Hall and Shepherd.
    Don’t get me started on Ashley’s ownership if you talking about making money out of a football club! Ashley lives to make money and he’s robbing us year on year.
    Don’t believe anything Jib, or whoever he is because he has a vested interest in Ashley staying.
    The best years of my lifetime support were under Hall and Shepherd and they sold up in the end!
    If only fat man would!

    Ask the owners of Man Utd how much profit they made last year.
    Ashley makes a good profit too. Unfortunately he spends a lot buying dead high street shops!

    Nobody has said that
    I’ll say it slowly for you so yo may understand
    (I have my doubts mind)
    We all hoped that Ashley would be the clubs saviour
    It proved not to be so

    Moonraker I would take it that you would be pleased your young daughter being called a dog. Shepard and Douglas Hall were nothing more thieve’s putting the clubs money in a company in Gibraltar. Sir John did fantastic for the club, and we experienced brilliant times. But he sold out to Ashley. Couldn’t wait to take the money.

    OLG I don’t wish to look at that man, what a state he his. No wonder the wife left him for the builder. She must have been hard up to go back, could have only been for his money.
