Shit is Antonio back?
Yeah came on as a sub against Southampton.

They have some decent players looking through their squad, but I reckon Richarlison will start hitting the back of the net and will be the difference.

You'd hope that extra rest we've had will give us a big advantage here.

West Ham put out pretty much a full strength side other than Bowen (who came on as a sub anyway) against Southampton.  So you'd expect them to either make changes or not be at full pelt for the whole game.

Hopefully Moyes considers this game akin to him bringing a knife to a gun fight and he just gets his team to roll over and show their bellies.

Yeah Moyes was an absolute criminal wasn't he.

I kid myself that with a 20m striker we'd have got top 4 and kicked on but Moyes would have had Edin Dzeko chasing lost causes and getting 8 goals a year.
Yet Yak still scored 20+ goals

Must admit; I thought hed save his best 11 for when they played us. Maybe hes happy with their fitness levels and thinks his players can play both games.

Remember that one vividly, shortly after after an an enjoyable trip to Liverpool and before an enjoyable trip to France :)
Despite a boring first 80 mins of football, were sat amongst some very unhappy hammers for the last 10.
Have never witnessed anything as wild as our away support going absolutely frothing mental when when we came back to roll them.


That was an enjoyable trip to France. I remember that well. Unreal that was 12 years ago. Another lifetime. How's the better half? :)

Antonio is 100% their "danger man" - especially from our perspective.  They're a different team entirely with him on the pitch.

I'm 100% confident Keane, Mina, Holgate and Godfrey will be able to cope with the mighty Antonio, will be tough, but I believe in them.

Youre comparing pure goal scorers to a pure footballer imo.

Its like comparing Ian Wright to Berbatov using the same metrics

Berbatov was much more of a playmaker than Saha.  Sure, Saha could play as a second striker of sorts.  But he was a striker first and foremost and it is fair to judge him mostly on his end product (goals and assists).  By those metrics, Lukaku is unequivocally a better player than Saha ever was, even putting aside injuries.  To suggest otherwise is, in my mind, crazy talk.

Lukaku, Yakubu, DCL, Saha.

Those are our best performing strikers for us in the prem era.

Both great players.

Im not sure Lukaku is better than Saha ever was tbh. Ferguson wanted Saha to replace van nistleroy at United so that tells you how good he was in his day.

For Everton though, Lukaku did a lot more, but Saha just had it all, whilst Lukaku could make the game look difficult at times.

Lukaku might be better on paper but technically he was nowhere near Saha, he was a far better player, wonderful player on either his left or right foot. His biggest problem was staying fit and therefore getting back up to speed whenever he came back.

I would doubt if they played the same amount of games by the end of their careers that Lukaku would have been better than Saha, not many would be.
