Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Agreed?

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Sakho wants out. Doesn't want to play for this manager. Any form now is just to get a move in Jan. I've always thought he was decent but he's far from professional. Just one of those people who cannot keep his emotions in check.
He will continue to be sidelined unless Bilic goes.

Antonio...Lanzini...Arnoutavic

.................Sakho

If we could line up with that front 4 i think we'd see a very different West Ham. We could press from the front, stretch teams in behind and give our midfield more time on the ball. When Carroll is up front the oppo just squeeze up and sufficate us. Will bilic do it? I dont think he will.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Isn't it great we have three great strikers in Carroll, Sakho and Pea! fucking amazing! Everton would love one of them!

And the attacking players behind them in Lanzini, Antonio, Arnautovic and Ayew! fucking hell! brilliant

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
All it needs is Carroll to score a goal and it will all change on here!

As it happens I also think Sakho and Chicharito would be a better pairing but I kind of think that Bilic expected it to work like the traditional big man/litlle man from history....

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Sakho and Hernandez would work alot better than Hernandez and Carroll.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
I seem to remember that Valencia's best form was when he played up front with Sakho and then Allardyce reverted to playing Carroll and Nolan!! Sakho when fit and when his head is right is far better than Carroll and I think would be a great pairing with Hernandez because both have got excellent movement but they have got to be in the box.

Carroll as an option if and when we need to go all out direct. Problem is to play the two up top you need to get the right midfield shape. 442 we don't have good enough central midfielders. Personally I would like to see a 4132 used but where then do you play Antonio?!

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Sakho is class when he is firing. Makes Carroll look like the donkey he is. Hernandez has not exactly been prolific and more worryingly for me is not getting in the right positions to get goals (bar Soton game). That is not necessarily his fault as there are bigger problems with him being played wide and our general set up.

But whatever; I think Sakho deserves his chance. Whether you play him up top on his own or with Hernandez then that's the choice. But he should be considered, for me, in front of Carroll now.

Carroll is a fucking donkey. Time up for me. Impact player only from now on. In the Crouch role what he does for Stoke. Carroll is simply not good enough.

Just make Sakho player-manager.

Everything sorted...

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Sakho is a talent without a doubt, but it concerns me that hooks up with a Belgian journo after the Swansea game, telling him that Billc has lost the dressing room.

Whether that is true or not, it's very divisive behaviour.

Chico is our best striker. He would play excellent with sakho.

VirginiaHam 1:40 Mon Oct 2
Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
I'd like to see us sell Carroll and invest the money in another rapid, mobile striker.

Each time Sakho has played this season he's done something, as with Chich. Hard to believe AC was MOM on saturday.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Sakho is quakity.....if he stays fit.
He offers you pace and power and pulls defenders out of position.
Defenders hate playing against raw pace.
He does the dirty work well running the channels something Carroll will never do.
I rate Carrol and I think the criticism of him at times is unjust. Yes we know he's probably going to be missing again sometime this season through another injury but he is still a player on his day who can be unplayable.
There is still a starting place for him in certain games and this is now about man management from Bilic.

There's no reason why the three of Carroll, Sakho and Little Pea shouldn't rotate but for me a front three of Sakho Hernandez and Antonio gives you that pace the team is lacking that we had two years ago with Moses Valencia Sakho playing of Payet.

Lanzini is crucial because he's the carrier of the ball and with them three's movement all of a sudden we look a far better team.

Carroll of the bench as well and you have real potency in the team

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
I'm inclined to agree about Sakho. If he hadn't spent the last two seasons injured and wasn't a total mentalist, he'd either have a lot of goals for us or have been sold to a big club for a huge transfer fee.

He's a very good player. Natural goalscorer and can do it in all sorts of ways.

If he's fit, we put him on the pitch as much as possible. I'd like to see him and Hernandez together.

Has a 12 m release clause. Our club doesn't stop impressing....

Drop Carroll to the reserves.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Good news about Arnautovic,

Sullivan has spent a bit of dough this season though, £25m on arnie £16m on Hernandez, Zabaletta must have cost a sign on fee

£20m for a past it Carroll is the reason to move him on, that's a good price, hopefully Sullivan would see fit to invest in the team!

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
There is no issue with Arnautovic. He was sick.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Duke

Sullivan didn't invest it in anything- it went straight into his bank account.

If we got this unlikely twenty million for Carroll, would you have confidence that Sullivan would reinvest it into the club?

That's why I never get these 'bite their hand off' or 'I'd drive him up there myself' arguments.

We as supporters have absolutely no control over how the fee would be spent or indeed IF it's spent at all.

The only thing we can be sure of as supporters in a deal like that is that we lose a player.

Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Chim; whatever they got for Feghuoli hasnt been well invested I think he was just coming good and looking sharp, we should have kept him

Can't believe Bilic is now having problems with Arnatauvich!

jack flash 12:44 Sun Oct 1
Re: Sakho is our best striker and should start.
Agreed ~ He makes chances & has great positional sense where Carroll often misses the few chances made for him by others & senselessly wanders all over the pitch where he is ineffective

Hernandes is a goal poacher with great pace

Him & Sakho are obviously the best up front pairing with Lanzini playing behind them
