Playing an ageing forward on his own as part of a 4-2-3-1 line u is Dino Moyes' only option when he sets his team up apparently, either Michail "I can't stop falling over" Antonio or Danny "I look older than your Uncle" Ings are his 'go to' players. The Hammers manager has managed to absolutely destroy the confidence of Gianluca Scamacca, just as he did with Sebastien Haller, which has seen the £35 Million summer signing pick up a series of 'niggles' and viruses since his arrival.
With Scamacca virtually unavailable ALL season Moyes has plodded on with his one up front Dinosaur tactics which other teams 'susssed' out ages ago, Dino's reluctance to change has impacted throughout the team, not just those who are supposed to attack!
"Try playing two up front" occassionaly has been the cry of fans and pundits alike, their voices falling on deaf ears! "We don't have ANY more strikers available" is Dino's bulk standard reply, well what about Hammers youth prodigy Divin Mubama?
The 'Drogbaesque' Mubama put Hammers ahead on 11 minutes with a clever finish at the near post for the first of his HAT TRICK in the U-18's 6-1 win over visitors Southampton in the Youth Cup semi final. The emphatic victory shows what a depth of talent there is just waiting to be unleashed, but will Moyes use the prolific Mubamba? Will he heck!
Perhaps Dino should remember how old he was when he was given HIS senior debut? - Ed
