The last time I started one of this we lost 3-0 to Reading and Kebe pulled his socks up
Nordtveit Reid Ogbonna Cresswell
Antonio Ayew Payet
West Ham 3-1 Hull City Antonio x 2 and Carroll.
12th in the table over the past 10 games, we're on the up with the games against the top 6 out of the way.
Not sure about Nordtveit at right back, but the rest of the team is spot on imo. Exactly what I'd select.
If we were to go 3-4-3 then:
Kouyate Reid Ogbonna
Antonio Obiang Lanzini Cresswell
Ayew Carroll Payet
I'd like to see us be more brave in this one, more confident and assured. When we defend don't mess about and when we attack make the opposition run scared for their lives. Hopefully this is a real morale boosting 3-0.

And before anyone picks me up on not having Noble, it is purely because he is knackered and could do with a rest, plus i want to see how this midfield three works
I think it'll be a better game against Hull. A colleague watched them at Tot last night and said they tried to shut up shop and it backfired. I think they'll be more adventurous coming to us as in reality it is the easier of their 2 London aways in a week. Hopefully our creative players get a bit more time and space to perform.
Another really big game for us. Hope some of our quieter "fans" up the effort a bit in creating an atmosphere but I won't hold my breath.
can't keep scraping past **** teams with 5 at the back at home.

I'd go with this except for Carroll/Fletcher in for Ayew.
Must win game, performance would be nice but just need the 3 points.
Kouyate Reid Ogbonna Cresswell
Shine bright like a diamond! lets be brave and bold for once. 4-0 irons!
Am I the only one who thinks we don't play particularly well when Carroll starts? We have to change the way we play to accommodate him and I feel like it just doesn't work. I would prefer Ayew up front with Antonio, Lanzini and Payet behind personally.
Scrappy, shitty, scruffy 1-0 will do me just fine. I know it papers over the cracks which lets' not kid ourselves are all too self evident, but hey ho, after the first half to the season, who wouldn't settle for 19 points by Xmas ?
It's going to be ugly and very scrappy. nothing much in it over the 90 mins. I will keep my fingers crossed for a moment of class from Payet being the deciding factor but I don't think either side has more than 1 goal in them.
