here we go again

Did not see the game but from what i heard on the radio and seen posted on here i had the best view...but once again i see slav playing people out of position...collins injured so zab put in back 3 antonio put at w/b i gather and chicarito wide left again FFS he is a STRIKER and a bloody good one at that...and then we have carroll which like i said makes us so one dimensional and PREDICTABLE....commentator on the radio was saying this and also how chicarito is being wasted played wide....square pegs round holes again...

Dicks is the man's picture

our squad looks ideal for a 4-4-2 or 3-5-2. the two being chico feeding off carroll.

442 for me is the only way to go IMO...playing hernandez wide is going to cost bilic dearly...spuds next and if he insists on playing carroll the ffs put chic alongside him take antonio/arnie wide right and left obiang when fit lanzini in the middle of the park and a zab/cressy at full back with reid and one other at c/b....but playing people out of position has to stop you think he would of learned his lesson from last year but it seems not.

Hernandez has pretty much scored ALL his goals in the area, a true definition of a fox in the box, so why not play him in a position that gets him in the box as much as we can? A poacher being played on the wing how can this NOT end in failure, and when his confidence and attitude goes he won't be any better if we do play him where he should be. Does bilic do any home work? I heard both Hernandez and Carroll weren't happy about being subbed, yet another 2 players bilic will fall out with? Becoming a theme here.

had been after Hernandez for 3 seasons so he should know all about the player..there cannot be many football fans on the planet who don't no what he's all about and if you polled every one of them the only one saying left winger would be Bilic.....i hope chicarito has the balls to go and have a word and say look i score goals its what i do not being stuck out on the wing....bilic will try and say he is not being played on the wing but as a left sided forward in a 433.....thats boolox we all no that

Mac put me down for Hernandez at left midfield and big mick at right back and kouyate as a centre midfielder. The mans a genius he can see what we all can't. Just think we could have kept feghouli who actually plays on the wing and moved ant over to where he wants to play on the left rather than spunk 16 mill on a poacher bought to score goals yet stick him out of the way and play in an alien position. But according to snodders, bilic thinks you should be able to play anywhere if you have confidence. Wait for bilic to ruin yet another player as soon as he joins West Ham. Is this some kinda in joke by the coaching staff we just ain't getting? Strange, get rid of 2 wide men and replace him one that's never played there.

No Red Neck, it cant be the lord and saviour Bilic, it must be the boards fault! All them players last season who had played champions league football with Top Clubs before joining us were actually all poor players and not mismanaged by an inept bilic. Its not like Bilic is known for continuously playing players out of position but its fine because hes west ham its not his fault!

whilst i agree that Bilic tactically is very poor, i don't agree that the signings were good last year at all. the likes of feghouli, nordveit, calleri, arbeloa, zaza were hardly great champs league players. in fact i don't see a queue of premier league clubs trying to sign any of them…why would that be?

Because they just had poor seasons under us? Its a well known fact the lieks of united and chelsea had been looking at Feghouli 2 seasons ago. The point is Dicks which once agin you keep missing over and over, is why are all these players who were good or in form for there clubs coming to us and looking unfit, poor, played out of positon. Zaza is scoring goals for Valencia, Calleri is scoring for Las Palmas. There not bad players, there mis managed. Hernandez is certainly not a bad player, but he looks poor for us. Why? Because our manager is piss poor and mis managing them.

Speaking of which Zazaa has just scored a hatrik for Valencia tonight,

Our squad looks set up to play any formation other than the one bilic wants to play! Having said that if we can't get the basics of passing right formation and players are all immaterial

Can we all start agreeing now that maybe our transfer business last season wasnt just 'poor recruitment from the board' and was actually Bilic mis using good players in poor tactics and formations over again.

We went to the game and I have to say enough is enough, as he is clearly tatically inept! Monday we witnessed a quality box goalscorer playing deep, whilst Carroll was knocking on balls with no-one there? On Saturday Carroll was playing central/right and Hernandez on the left as a winger??? Absolute nonsense!!! WBA offered nothing and it wasn't a great game, typical Pullis, but we should create better chances but won't with Bilic as Manager.

i agree with you ANTKB. its getting a bit stupid now that he can't decide on a formation that gets the best out of the key players. he's trying to stick them all on the pitch together regardless of where they need to be playing. most of us despise the likes of pulis and his 'brand' but lets be honest, at least he knows how he wants to set up, and he buys and arranges his team accordingly.

And it looks like most of the org does too. I'm getting frustrated seeing a good goalscorer (Chicharito) wasted. And Sakho is a striker to. Why Billic can't see that amazes me.

Just read his comments on the official site. Among them: (1) He KNOWS he's playing Chicharito out of position, (2) he doesn't think he can play Chicharito and Carroll together, (3) He was more than content to take Chicharito and Carroll off against WBA. But this just makes no sense to me. Why not try to forge a partnership? I just can't see having Chicharito sitting on the bench so that Slav can play his preferred 3-4-3.
