Our best left back
Well if tonight doesn’t tell you who that is you are clueless. I actually saw people putting Masuaku in ahead of Cresswell.

Masuaku is and never should be allowed to play left back ever again. He cannot tackle and positionally doesn’t know where he is on the pitch. Genuinely the worst cameo I have seen in a very long time.

Our Scouts need to look at Sam McCallum at Coventry City.
I’ve known him since he was a young kid - absolute mustard with a powerful left peg similar to Julian Dicks

Re: Our best left back
Cresswell is our best left back.
Masuaka is our best left wing back.
Don't mix and match.

Cresswell by a country mile.

Masuaku is DOGSHIT

Re: Our best left back
everyone says how good masuaku is at going forward but what does he create? i seem to remember him just running the ball out for a goal kick far more often than creating anything decent.

Creswell has 2 goals from open play this season and has been in position for a few more. has masuaku ever scored? i remember one long range effort in the league cup a few years back but thats about it

We're crying out for pace and he's got it. He can just knock it past a player and get a cross in.

Ha ha, yeah because it's that easy in the prem.

Re: Our best left back
Masuaku not forcing Pepe down the side on his weaker foot, then allowing him to cut in and let rip on his left for the second goal.

Diabolical. Park footballers know better.

Re: Our best left back
Keep Dreaming - don't worry, I wasn't necessarily having a go only at your post. It was more of a general comment about how you meet, or hear from, fans who think it's easy for the club to just wipe the slate clean and start again - like you can kind of do with computer games (I'm not a gamer, as I'm sure people can tell).

I often see or hear comments like "we should sell **** and buy **** from **** in instead'.

Like it's easy for all of those pieces of that jigsaw to fall into place.

This is the real world - players have signed contracts, clubs have invested millions in those players, players have families which have settled into areas (friends/schools etc), agents might discourage players from moving on, or from signing for certain sides, fees might not be available, medicals might not be passed...I could go on and on.

That's all I mean when I say it's not Football Manager. It's nowt personal, rest assured. It's just that I liked it when our fans were grounded in the day-to-day realities of West Ham. I see a big chunk of our fans losing that these days. But then I'm an old fucker now.

Re: Our best left back
That's it. It's easier said than done to just say get rid.

It's up to the management team to get the best out of him.

I'd give him a try at LM and switch Anderson to the right.

He has got pace and crossing ability.

Re: Our best left back
Didn’t Masuaku just sign a new long deal?
If he does not get his form back by playing some games, we will be stuck with him for a long time.

Re: Our best left back

I agree that he can cross a decent ball while running at pace.

We're crying out for pace and he's got it. He can just knock it past a player and get a cross in.

The problem would then be Haller appears to crap in the air and Antonio might be the only one getting on the end of it.

I believe he's actually supposed to be a wing back. Creswell starts and Masuaku plays LM. I'd hope he's at least capable of helping Cresswell out defensively.

Zabaleta could have come on against Arsenal and at least whacked Pepe as he obviously didn't fancy a tackle.

Masuka go LM and switch Anderson over to the right as Snodgrass was blowing out of his arse after 60 mins. Holland was just a rabbit in the headlights.

I'm not saying he's anyway above average but's its up to Pelle to change it round as best he can and he's failing at it.

Re: Our best left back
Actually these days it's difficult to get rid of players on Football Manager...if anything it's far too realistic which of course has taken all the fun out of it.

Re: Our best left back
If you point at my post, I can only say fair enough. Get rid doesn't mean tomorrow though.
Buy even if they are under contract doesn't mean you can't put them on a transfer list

Re: Our best left back
It's not Football Manager, folks. You can't just get rid of four full-backs overnight as though they no longer exist - and then magically sign four replacements in the blink of an eye.

They are under contract, they might not want to move, they might be willing to go once they've seen out the remainder of their deal etc. This is the real world we live in.

One of the things that I used to love about our fans was that they were grounded in the realities of life - but it seems many have just turned into sofa managers and fantasists.

At best, we'll be able to offload Zabaleta in January, because he will be out of contract next summer. The rest are all under contract for longer (I think) and so the chances of us moving them on quickly - should we want to - are slimmer. Wed need someone to come in and buy Fredericks, for example, which doesn't look like much of a threat at the moment. Maybe a loan?

Re: Our best left back
We should get rid of Fredericks, masuaku, Cresswell and zabaleta and start over.
Masuaku and Fredericks are fast but a bit thick
Zabaleta has experience but to old
Cresswell is the better one, bust still not good enough.

Nick QQQ 6:40 Wed Dec 11
Re: Our best left back
I keep hearing about Masuaku's pace and good feet.... Tactical awareness is so important to be a top player these days and he has none of that so I don't buy this "he would be a good option at LM". He isn't a good option full stop.

Re: Our best left back
Masuaku has good feet and can be a decent attacking player but as a fullback is even worse than Antonio.

Mex Martillo 2:46 Wed Dec 11
Re: Our best left back
I was putting Masuaku ahead of Cresswell, but after Monday have to say at the moment Cresswell needs to start. Masuaku was playing well, then if I remember well he missed a game for a red and after that was completely dropped. I would still like to see him playing left midfield if we are short for that position.

How is Cresswell? Hope he is fit for Saturday?

Re: Our best left back
I don't understand why many think he is good going forward.. Slow, awful crossing ability, can't drible past anyone..

Cheezey Bell-End 2:38 Wed Dec 11
Re: Our best left back
Cresswell's a good attacking fullback, but will never be another Julian.

southbankbornnbred 2:17 Wed Dec 11
Re: Our best left back
Our best left back by some distance is Cresswell.

He's a decent player - I've never understood the hostility towards him from some. Sure, he has had a few poor games. But name me a West Ham player who hasn't?

He's streets ahead of Arthur as a defender and by no means the weak link in our current side.

Re: Our best left back
Cresswell. His form after a drop is coming back. If only this cretin would play 3-5-2 then as a wing back you'd see him further forward where he's a real goal threat. With a back 3 behind him he wouldn't have to track back so much or lie so deep to cover for that coward Anderson.

It's so fucking basic but he Chlilean fraud can't see it.
