    How the fupp is it 2019?

    Every time I the that I feel like I kinda blinked and missed 2002-2019... did anything interesting happen?

    Well after last week's lackluster performance at Villa... we need a big turn around in the morning... yes... morning... it's a 6:00am kick off over these here parts.

    noble is in the press wittering on about how with a good performance we could be up to third... not realizing that should have been the thought process and outcome last week.

    any road up... thing is... we could have been 5th with a possibility of 3rd with a good result...

    but we're actually 11th with a possibility of 4th with a result or 13th if Palace win their game and we don't.

    Still... 4th would be nothing to bitch about.

    but more realistically...

    Chelsea will lose and the Arse will win which means we'd be playing for 5th, which would still be nice.


    so... gotta go get some shut eye to be up that early on a sunday...

    here's the current team sheet.


    Starting:

    Fabianski
    Diop
    Ogbonna
    Fredericks
    Cresswell
    Noble
    Rice
    Yarmalenko
    Lanzini
    Anderson
    Haller

    Subs from:
    Martin, Roberto, Balbuena, Reid, Cardoso, Zabaleta, Johnson, Coventry, Wilshere, Sánchez, Snodgrass, Ajeti, Fornals, Holland

    Doubtful Reid (knee)

    Injured Antonio (hamstring, unknown)

    Suspended Masuaku (one match)

    Discipline Y8 R1

    Form LDWWD

    Leading scorer Haller 3

    okay, little bit behind as I couldn't get out of bed quickly enough.. will catch up as we go...

    Lanzini is not playing... Fornals is out there instead.

    other than that... same line-up as I write earlier...

    bright start from us...

    pressing nicely, having almost all the possession... passing is a little off... but the first 5 minutes have been almost all in the Utd half...

    except as I type that they get a throw and come at us... but we pussh them back to their defense to make them play out...

    shame we didn't do this against Villa...

    shit passing at the back puts Fabianski under pressure and his hurried clearance goes out... that's not gonna work against Utd.

    if we can get our passing together we'd be a pretty decent team...

    we're not giving Utd much time or space on the ball - which is the secret to beating teams... we just don't do it as often as we should.

    well, maybe not 'beating' them... but it certainly stops them beating you...

    13 minutes gone and neither keeper troubled (except Fab's forced clearance)

    ooh... nice flying body check...

    Ogbonna's lucky not to be sent off for that... but riding a yellow this early in the game is not cool... ask Arthur.

    first shot either keeper's had to handle and Fab makes an easy save... but his quick goal kick goes straight to Utd...

    but in an un-West Ham manner... we win back possession from open play

    oooh... our first 'shot' on goal...

    comes after a bit of Utd possession... but Yarmoloenko's shot is soft as butter and straight into the keeper's arms...

    halfway through the half...

    Utd are getting more into things...

    but if we defend with 11 men then of course thee's going to be no one up field to receive Noble's high and hopeful clearance form the back...

    that was a better move from us but Fornals final paddocking was way off the pace and Yarmo could do nothing with it...

    this is two teams just dithering about... neither really have a cutting edge or any seeming interest in scoring...

    5 minutes to till half time and I can press the FF button and catch up with reality...

    also, 5 minutes for someone out there to put in a pass that gets to its target...

    holy shit...

    this game makes me eat my words every time...

    West Ham press...

    Noble has the ball and does circle after circle with me saying to myself... when's he ever going to actually put in a decent pass to anyone...

    and then he passes to Yarmolenko who turns in the box and curls a low shot past a bunch of players and into the bottom corner of the net past the outstretched fingers of the Utd keeper...

    43 minutes and the Cockney boys lead 1-0.

    and there goes the half time whistle and we have my two least favorite players to think for us heading in for oranges and a cuppa with a goal advantage...

    funny old game.

    2nd Half gets underway...

    more of the same pleas, even if it's as boring as the first half...

    3pts would be lovely.

    Diop almost lands us in trouble by thinking Fabianski is coming for a ball when he clearly isn't...

    Here's the Guardian's view on the goal while Utd attempt to score...

    "GOAL! West Ham 1-0 Manchester United (Yarmolenko, 44)

    It had been coming. Noble and Felipe Anderson are involved in the buildup and then the latter, first time, coolly rolls the ball into the path of Yarmolenko, who wraps his left foot around the ball and arrows it into the far corner beyond David de Gea. It’s this game’s first moment of real quality. Manchester United’s defending was slack at best, drifting around the box, chasing shadows before Yarmolenko hammered in. Ashley Young, in fairness, had flung himself in front of a couple of crosses from the right moments earlier but few of his team-mates followed suit."

    "So, Roy Keane is close to imploding at Mark Noble being allowed nine touches in the buildup to that fine Andriy Yarmolenko strike, his second of the season. Asked what was missing from that first-half Manchester United display José Mourinho replies, deadpan: “In this moment, I think they are missing everything. It looks to me a sad game, it looks to me a game of ‘Let’s see what is going to happen.’ Sometimes players are a bit confused and it’s difficult for them to understand.” Work to do for Ole Gunnar Solskjær."

    Rashford is done.

    Something popped but he can walk off...

    Hopefully Utd no longer have super subs... Lingard is the man with the responsibility to do nothing to spoil our lead.

    We're currently 4th in the Premier League... and the top of the London teams...

    Been a long old time since either of those things happened...

    Palace are currently behind us... surely Chelsea and the Arse won't let us get away with that will they?


    great save from De Gea from Anderson at close range... another goal would be perfect right about now.

    The Man Utd Twitterverse are not very happy people.

    even paying like a 'secondary school team' they could still get something form sthis 'snoozefest'...


    But we do have Fabianski...

    it's weird how this side let 5 in on opening day...

    oh shit... and there's Fab to save our bacon once again...

    interesting substitution... anderson comes off and wilshire comes on...

    someone put have been worried Anderson had used up all his 'interest' in playing attacking football for the season...

    wonder if wilshire will make it through 20 minutes without getting injured...

    wilshire makes his first contribution... gets tripped outside the box for a free kick...




    we put a wall in front of the Utd wall... but it doesn't mater cos Yarmo's kick fizzes over the bar anyway...
