    Post  westhamonkey on Sat 13 Jan 2018, 3:01 pm


    3-5-1-1 formation

    our brightest player of the past two fixtures doesn't get a start

    our goalscoring offering is Lanzini and Arnie...

    Noble is back - which will please the fan boys and give them all the ammunition they need if we manage a win.

    6 minutes gone, pretty much all Huddersfield so far.

    They just had their first corner but failed to do anything with it.

    first bit of real WHU action... almost a nice link up between Lanzini, Arnie and Masuaku...

    20 mins gone... we had a little spell of possession.

    we're a touch more in the game... had a corner... but no real threat on goal from us yet.

    but to be fair, no real direct goal threat from them either...

    and we take the lead...

    noble scores it... rifles the ball into the top corner after a poor pass out form the keeper gets intercepted by Arnie...

    kinda against the run of play in the sense that no one had looked to dangerous in front of either keeper... but we have the lead.

    and there you have it... Huddersfield were looking down after going behind... but 5 minutes before the break they launch a nice sweeping move and score a great equalizer...

    bollix... I was enjoying being 12th in the table...

    couple of chances for Hudds as their tails are up... barely any time left out f the 2 minutes of stoppage time.

    looks like we'll go in all level

    only 6 attempts on goal in the first half - that's both teams combined.

    I guess should be thankful for the conversion rate into goals.

    Hudds have had 4 of the efforts

    only downside really I suppose is that we scored from pouncing on a mistake, Hudds scored from open play.

    just been looking at the other scores and the table... back down to 16th... and both the two teams directly below us can put us only out of the relegation zone on goal difference because Stoke are so shit...

    fupp... we need to win this game... a draw does us no good at all.

    and that'll do nicely...

    not sure I like this new rule that you can pass back from the kick-off... but we do... and 11 seconds later... three touches (apart from the ball juggling by Arnie) and the ball is in the back of the net without a Huddersfield player touching it...

    Back in the lead.

    The game is ours to lose... please don't throw it away again boys.

    we're up and down like the Assyrian Empire at the moment...

    some great ping pong one touch interplay... Lanzinin and Arnie link up in the box and in a reversal of what happened a few mins ago where Lanzini shot weakly when he should have passed to Arnie... Arnie lays in Lanzini and he slots it past the keeper...

    3-1

    well there you go... ould this be the new Cottee and Macavennie?

    Arnie is playing out of his skin... but gets bundled down in the box where the ball falls to Lanzini who slams into the net...

    1-4

    it's interesting to see what happens when you actually play two strikers...

    Arnie comes off to a deserved ovation from the away support.

    Ayew replaces him - but lets face it... that's no replacement...

    this is the result we needed... and a decent performance to boot.

    we're 11th in the table and there's not one team below us who can go ahead of us with their game in hand...

    Watched the game today having recorded it. I've got to say from the start I was never a Moyes fan, but........ He has the team working well at a far higher pace and the work rate added to round pegs in round holes really works. Arnoutovic looks a different player than at the start of the season. The defence looks solid with Adrian in goal and five across the back. Masaku again looks a completely different player to last season, and with Rice, Burke and Oxford to add to our current CB's i see no reason to worry in that area. 
    Hart will need to be replaced as he wont stay as a back up, mistake to bring him in (I supported the move initially, but I was wrong) and get rid of Randolph. Trott is to young and untested for this level. Zabaletta needs somebody better than Byram to push him, Burke maybe? We need something more in the middle, Cullen? 
    Forward, Hernandez is not Moyes cup of tea isn't getting the service he needs  to score and must be getting peed off, Sakho wants out and if we can get good money take it, Ayew never understood why we got him, but he is our joint   top scorer with six! Carroll I'd keep but he is at bezt an impact sub now, and it'll be interesting to see Antonio playing with Arnoutovic, Pace and pwer to spare!! 
    If we can beat the Shrews on Tuesday with a second string, Bournemouth at home will be a real testas they will be a lot different to Huddersfield.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this game, some smooth passing and four excellent goals.  
    Fantastic to see Mark Noble grab one  heart
    Arnie and Lanzini complementing each other perfectly. 
    Is it alright for me to get a little bit excited?

    Absolutely love Lanzini and Arnautovic <3 We have got to keep Lanzini in this transfer window.
