As soon as JWP has a bad game Vexed will be back with " i told you so "

No content with being that he thought he'd come back for another go

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe)
JWP is a good geezer by all accounts and has a fucking wand for a foot but fucking hell what a shit fucking signing for 30m

But this is the guy that moaned and Moaned about Rice playing in midfield saying he was a failed CB. Even thought about giving up of talking about football Vexed?

Not as wrong as some Charoo.

Vexed 1:22 Wed Aug 9

It just keeps getting worse. What the fuck are we doing? Now we just need another ageing past his prime never was type player up top we can buy at great expense to fully flush the future of this club down the shitter.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Happily admit I was wrong. Was hugely uninspired by this signing.

He has massively exceeded expectations. He is so consistent, got great fitness, gets box to box, economical with the ball, can switch play, quicker mentally and physically than I thought, plus his set plays as we knew make so much difference.

Proper Pro.

I would imagine that some Southampton fans were starting to pick holes/look for negatives in JWP because they knew he was leaving them.

Quite a few of our fans were doing the same with Rice.

ED's right, he even had the foresight to go north of the river to get his football education watching West Ham back when they looked to play the game properly......learn from him......

They do indeed Nage, and that's never a good idea if you don't know your football.

When you do know your football, and you've got a 100% record on these things, then you can't really go overboard enough.

Learn from me.

in true COYI fashin.

Playing down Ward Prowse's ability then also managing to use that in order to slag Noble off.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Yeah, some fans do go massively overboard when they don't like a player, don't they?

Eerie Descent 12:10 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Nage, I remember when he signed and I said it will be a solid signing, as did most, and in response you went and found a few posts by Southampton fans basically calling him average and a coward, which I admit gave me seconds thoughts. Couldn't have been more wrong, could they!

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
His 5 assists and 2 goals in 6 games speak for themselves, but I'm most impressed with the fact that his goals were both scored through him supporting on the break rather than from 25 yard free kicks

Side of Ham 12:05 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
I never understood why Noble got given the corners and free kicks he was terrible…..so much so even Cresswell was a massive improvement….

Nagel 11:59 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Pretending that his deliveries are merely standard at this level is complete and utter bollocks. In the last 10 years in the PL, no-one has got more assists from set pieces than JWP.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
COYI

I think you're comparing Noble to someone who is statistically the best free kick taker in world football. JWP is an anomaly. I think he has better stats than Messi / Ronaldo etc.

Come On You Irons 11:52 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
JWP's corner deliveries put Noble to shame and highlight what a limited player Noble is. Noble routinely couldn't get corners past the first defender at the near post, which is shocking for a Premier League level footballer.

To be honest, JWP's corner deliveries are what you would expect as standard from a Premier League level, elite professional footballer. The fact they are lauded so much, shows how little our expectations have been up to now as we have have to endure years of dross from Noble and others.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
deal, I think he even has out of the ordinary in his locker…. like that pass in the Chelsea at home match….but it won’t be one of his stronger traits….

dealcanvey 10:27 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
His stats at Southampton showed what he is capable of.

Now watching him week in week out. His corner delivery is a huge weapon. Think we’ve scored 4 already. Not seen much of his free kicks yet but the stadium got excited when he was about to take one last night.

Outside of set pieces he surprised me with how well he works off the ball. With the ball he is never going to do something out of the ordinary but he keeps the ball and moves it quickly.

Very good player.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Thought he was an OK signing at 30 million…

However he’s exceeded my expectations…

Long may it continue…

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
Was a bit underwhelmed when we signed him but he’s certainly more than proved his worth so far.

His deliveries must be a nightmare for the opposition to deal with.

Obviously lacks pace but let’s be realistic, if he also had that he would be playing for a bigger club than us.

Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
The only negative thing about our start to the season is how reliant we are on him already. Heaven help us if he gets injured. I admit I wanted us to get someone younger for the money but his quality with long passes and corners is just superb. Much more production than we have had in midfield for a while.

Eerie Descent 12:25 Fri Sep 22
Re: James Ward Prowse - West Ham United Captain (Maybe) Signed (finally)
The start he has made is unbelievable. I thought he'd be a good signing, but I really didn't think he'd be this good. The only thing he lacks is pace, but his all round game is very good, and his set pieces are genuine world class, probably the best in the world.

What an asset.
