WHO Poll
Q: 2018/19 Wolves (H)
a. At last we have a win now let's make it two, Win
b. A win against 10 men and two leagues below us is fine, but this will be much harder I'll take a point, Draw
c. Who are we kidding, a win against Wimbledon and all is rosy, forget it we're getting our arses kicked in this one, Lose
d. It's at times like these when you really do miss Love Island
e. I was all over this game until I found out it's not on the box, the broadcasting companies really don't care about us hard core fans do they, I might pop off to Thorpe Park for the day instead, obviously in my WHU shirt

The problem with players like him and Defoe is they are weak as piss and offer very little outside the box which is fine when your Man Utd and you spend most of the time attacking but when your playing for anybody outside the top 4/5 who don’t dominate games you’ve got no out ball as he can’t hold the ball up.
Very few teams play with 2 up top so nobody plays with a fox in the box type striker anymore who wanted Hernandez and Defoe when they became available virtually nobody even though they always end up in double figures for the season.

His runs are absolutely superb. If only we had more players that could find them. Thankfully arnie can, Mario seems to on occasion and Lanzini definitely has the ability. All of those behind hernandez and 2 holding miss would be pretty nice.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
I have seen very few players at West Ham (relatively young in terms of being able to actually watch, to be fair) that get into better positions when someone with the ability to make a pass is on the ball.

Should he be doing better at other times, probably but making runs when the person on ball probably won't find you is pretty morale-sapping.

He has always put the ball in the net at a very high rate and however his chance came about here, he has helped us pick up some very important points as of late.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
Pea clearly has quality as proven in his last couple of games, he's a goalscorer and if he gets chances more often than not he'll stick them away. The problem has been that in lots of games he's had nothing created for him.

7 goals in 21 games in a poor side is a decent return and the more we play to his strengths and have other players to support him then he'll get more goals.

Errr! You do realise that Chicarito last played regularly for Man Utd in 2013/14 season don't you selecta?

Clearly we all hope that he can re-discover his best form just as we do with Hart and Zabaleta but this is WH and you should know our luck by now if you have been a fan for more than 5 minutes...

My son is getting mobbed in LA wearing his circa 2000 Dr. Martens West Ham shirt.
Can't wait to get back to LA to watch the games. Think I'll head for a bar in Boyle Heights to get the true Latino atmosphere!

"regular hamstring injuries did for Owen........ and maybe Torres?"

I clearly remember a MATE who was a very good athlete saying to me soon after Owen's great goal vs the Argies in '98 that with the type of acceleration he had and, given the wear and tear in football, the hammies would get him sooner rather than later. He adapted well though, tbf.

Torres simply played far too much football far too early. He was Atleti's main man by the time he was 17, playing nigh on every single game. It was always going to catch up on him.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
Selective reading indeed, especially seeing as you seem to have selectively missed this part of your own post:

"He will be a tad slower now"

Hence that being the part of your post that I was referring to, I mentioned nothing about hunger, did I? No. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
And in fairness, I wouldn't class Owen and CHICO as similar types of players, Owen was all about blistering pace, he did adapt when INJURIES slowed him down and was still a good goalscorer, but his movement isn't on a par with Chico, who is all about finding space and being in the right place at the right time. He's quick, but I don't think his game depends on it.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
It does crack me how people automatically presume that as a player nears 30 then they are going to be slower, have less stamina or be weaker etc. It's a very lazy and naive stereotype.

Selective reading again, I also said "we have signed a different player to the hungry one back then".

Think of a young Mike Tyson coming to rip your head off :-)

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
I like the way Michael Owen is used as a poster boy for this nonsense. It's conveniently forgotten that he was proper injury prone throughout his career, suffering a couple of real bad ones along the way.

Which Chicarito hasn't.

Although, he is a striker who has signed for West Ham, so I dare say he will do soon.

Swiss. 5:51 Wed Jul 26
Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed

Right there. Owen slowed down due to his injuries.

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
The hang up by many on here with age is fucking ridiculous.

It's not the 70/80's where the players were out drinking more than the fans were.

They're proper professionals now (well 99.9% are), have body conditioning coaches and every other load of nonsense going.

Any of the silly sods stressing over it also in the camp who wanted soon to be 37 year old Defoe, who still seems pretty nifty???

Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
so you were talking about how the years can slowly effect a player as age takes hold by giving an example of almost exactly the opposite happening? *applauds*

go back to boats, racism and dodgy xmas jumpers, that's what you're good at.

Gavros 4:54 Wed Jul 26
Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed
Shut up plw. I was using Owen as an example of the fact that if your game is about acceleration, then catastrophic failure can end you career very quickly.

Trevor B 4:48 Wed Jul 26
Re: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez - signed

i thought you were supposed to be intelligent mate? so to show the effects of age on the body you pick out a player who, in his own words, had a career ruined by an injury that he got aged 19.
