WHO Poll
Q: 2022/23 You are the Chairman what do you do with Moyes?
a. Stick with him obviously, he's delivered two good seasons back to back and will see us out of this dip in form
b. If we're still lingering around the bottom three by the start of the WC then that's the time to get rid
c. What are we waiting for 2 wins in the last 20 PL games is reason enough to sack him, go now
d. I've just got my new Orange & White 3rd Kit with Moyesinho on the back, I can't wait to wear it down to the supermarket, they call me Mr West Ham around here

Pablo Fornals - signed
West Ham United is delighted to announce the signing of highly sought-after Spain international attacking midfielder Pablo Fornals.

A creative, technically-gifted playmaker with an eye for goal, Fornals joins the Hammers from Villarreal, for whom he has excelled in both La Liga and the UEFA Europa League.

Fornals, who becomes the second most-expensive signing in the Club’s history behind Felipe Anderson, has signed a five-year contract, with an option of a further year, after undergoing a successful medical at Spire London East Hospital.

Just 23, the Castellon-born player has already made more than 150 senior appearances and will join up with Manuel Pellegrini’s squad after representing his country at this summer’s UEFA European U21 Championship finals.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
He lacks pace and isn't a left winger. A player playing wide left with no pace and debatable cross is going to be ineffective. I really don't get why this is persisted with other than Moyes thinking that we won't attack down the flanks.

There is no doubting that Fornals has vision and there have been numerous times a clever ball has set us away or led to a goal. It doesn't always come off but I like that he is trying something different and not just passing backwards and sideways.

If we were dominating possession then this guy is really useful. When we don't have the ball all game then he is just a body chasing shadows slowly.

It's fine to keep calling out players as being 'shit'. Yes their form goes up and down but it should be fairly obvious from the fact we keep adding good players that go backwards that something is wrong with how they are used.

Fornals has a lot of heart and at least you can see his effort even if the result is poor. He isn't getting us out of a relegation fight or in a struggling team that doesn't use or pass the ball.
We are currently playing back to basics hoofball.

Regardless of the stick I'll get, I know my footballers when I see enough of them. It was obvious when I called him out ages ago that this lad is a headless chicken with limited footballing ability. Game as they come, but aside from the odd game in a blue moon, a terrible football player.

I find it truly staggering how so many have been blinded to his actual ability because he said he loves the club.

This bloke must have pics of Moyes with a 12 year old girl or something
He is by far and away the worst player at the club and must be the worst Spanish professional footballer at passing the ball that has ever lived
Every week he’s the worst player on the pitch it’s absolutely baffling. Yes benrahama is hit and miss but he creates chances in virtually every single game he plays he has pace which stretches teams even if he’s not playing well, this fella has no pace can’t pass not a great tackler half his shots come off his shin he is a truly awful awful footballer.
Yes he works hard and clearly loves the club but if you put me out there I’d do that not sure anybody would fancy going 200 miles and spending £200+ to watch me

An abysmal footballer. He literally can't pass to a teammate.

That was my favourite response, colly son.

The only thing Barcelona would employ him to do is clean the showers.

When’s he off to “Madrid or Barcelona”?

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
I don’t know the stats but I bet Fornals and Soucek are in the team because of the distances they run.

Definitely not their football abilities

Benrahma is a better player than Fornals. I can’t stand the cunt, it drives me insane the weird cult following he seems to have.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
Well Griff, I had Coufal down as a 2/10, so he just about stayed out of the conversation for worst performer.

Burnsy, have a read down at some of the comments on this thread. Some funny shit.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
To have been in the same side as Soucek today, and still be the worst player on the pitch, takes some doing.

He was so appalling bad today, I would have to think Moyes is looking to sabotage his own job if he starts him in the next game.

Both him and Soucek produced two of the worst performances I've ever seen in the shirt. That was Roberto levels.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
Benrahma is always the fall guy yet he is currently playing better than both Fornals and bowen.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
Absolutely obvious Cornet would've been better suited to the lwb/lw role today. Was said that Fornals offers more defensively, but people seem to forget that having the ability to take the ball down the line into the final third, keep it and create chances for your attacker is a form of good defense. Not having to defend is near perfect defense, in fact.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
68% pass completion rate today.

Must have been all those defence splitting passes he attempted again.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
For me, Fornals is one of those players that run themselves close to exhaustion all game. This makes him a manager’s favourite.

Unfortunately trying to pass, tackle, anticipate, see patterns etc while on the point of exhaustion causes him to make frequent mistakes. Hence the variety of ratings from fans.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
I love Pablo, I just wish he wouldn't give the ball away so much and I'm not talking about those through balls, I'm talking about basic to feet passes to keep possession.

When on song he can be brilliant but too often he's just frustrating.

ATHammer 8:54 Thu Sep 1
Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
Love the bloke. Has his limitations, pace and tackling and the odd poor pass thrown in come to mind.
But ...
Application; attitude; effort, heart, commitment all first class with the odd goal and brilliant pass.
Is he Messi? No.
Does he do his utmost for us to be the best he possibly can?
Top man and glad to have him around.

Re: Pablo Fornals - signed
No idea Eerie, make it to 1-2 games a season.
Last was Sevilla down in Sevilla. Fornals played well, I remember him well. Those whily Sevillan midfielders cut our most of his passes though. I could see what Fornals was trying to do, but they were a bit too good for us that night.
