WEST STAND ANDY
- Jul 9, 2003
Maguire was certainly carrying some extra timber last night. Who ate all the pies?
Frustratingly, this is surely the correct answer.No way will he start, Ten Bag isn’t stupid
Don’t they have a load of defender injuries? Johnny Evans had to come on last week.Frustratingly, this is surely the correct answer.
Maguire has made it clear that money is his motivation and perhaps his passion in life, his preference to sit on Manure’s bench rather than lead West Ham’s defence under a limited manager who appreciates his simple skills should have signalled his permanent entry into the international wilderness.
He won’t get any minutes against us on Saturday which is incredibly annoying but hopefully, we’ll have more than enough without his blunders and own goals.
I agree yes, on the basis that i've seen quite a lot of Levi Colwill and i've never seen him clumsily shank one into his own net like Mgauire didSouthgate needs to recognise that his continued insistence on putting Harry Maguire in the firing line whilst desperately short of confidence and match fitness is contributing to the abuse that HM is receiving.
I don't like it - for whatever his faults may be, it's not nice to witness. But Southgate saying "He is a top player" and was "a big part of the win" last night just makes Southgate look daft and weakens his position as manager.
As others have said, the situation was PERFECT for Colwill to come in and partner his old buddy in central defence. I feel certain we would've kept clean sheet if he had.
We immediately looked slower, deeper and less confident when Maguire came on, which handed the initiative to Scotland for 20 minutes or so.I agree yes, on the basis that i've seen quite a lot of Levi Colwill and i've never seen him clumsily shank one into his own net like Mgauire did
I wouldn’t feel sorry for him, he has had plenty of opportunities to develop or to move but he would prefer the £££.That was a disgrace last night. When Gheui had to go off it was literally served up on a plate for him to bring on Colwill into a PROVEN partnership, it was a f***ing no-brainer, but oh no let’s bring on a player whose confidence must be rock bottom. That wasn’t man-management that was throwing a player to the wolves.
Where does Maguire go from here? I almost feel sorry for him. Southgate is a fraud and an utter bellend to boot.
