Now that Lingard has gone back to United he should start nearly every game - especially after yesterdays performance

Looked very good. MOTD2 has Ashley Williams on who played against Benrahma when he was with us and said he is a confidence player. If he knows hes playing his performance goes up and he will score goals

Great offensive work yesterday in the Lingard role but fear for his chances if Moyes manages to sign JL permanently.
I think that ship has sailed, why spend another 30M or whatever when you have the answer already. West Ham are also not known for their generosity, so will probably spend the money elsewhere.

A very good assist for West Ham’s first goal v Leicester.

Can’t see him not making the starting XI in future.

Ironically I think he's been relatively quiet this game

Yes i thought that drifting around a bit instead of getting involved. But as game went on saw more from him. Still an assist and a goal. Hammers fans cant complain.

Scores against Man Utd via a wicked* deflection.

*Wicked being attractively cruel, rather than witch-based sorcery.

Looked like his shot might have been heading into the top corner on its original trajectory pre deflection. Would have taken an excellent save from DDG to stop it.

Either way, with Neal having just scored from the spot at the Amex, fabulous to see 5 Bees bred forwards thriving in the PL right now :owusu:

......if only Moyes hadn't subbed Said off in the 88th minute, he'd have had a 'warmed up' penalty taker.

btw, I know Noble's got a great record but that angled run up of his on Sunday was somewhat telegraphed.

The moral of this storey is that even the best penalty takers miss from time to time.

Absolute b***ocks on the Premier League commentary last night during the Leeds / West Ham game - it seems he wasn't playing last year for the Irons due to the fact his defensive game wasn't up to scratch - however Moyes has improved this area so that now he is a far better player than when he played for us and can start for them.

I don't seem to recall we were unhappy with him performing his defensive roll - I would be surprised if the coaches would have let him get away with not running back to help out etc.

He worked a lot harder defensively for us second season than first but his defensive and all round play now is another level beyond what he did for us and he has managed to combine it with retaining his attacking verve. Last season you could see when watching him there he had to really work and think a lot about his defensive positioning beyond merely tracking back. It was frustrating to watch as a Bee because it looked unnatural to him and did reduce his attacking threat. But he is a Better all round player now. And it is massively to his credit. Nobody loses from him becoming better now than he was then.

I’m looking forward to seeing him again on Sunday. Hope he scores a hatrick (for Fantasy Football reasons) in a 3-4 thriller.

Assume we have a sell-on, so the better he gets......£££

Good that he still does that thing where he bends the ball side of the goal

Did nothing. Should have scored in the first half.

I have watched him a few times on TV and yesterday of course. While he has worked his way into being a key part of their squad I can't help feeling Moyes has coached him away from being the exciting flair player we once knew so well.

I think that his own words in yesterday's programme are quite telling:

"Thomas Frank was great for me in my two years with the Bees and now David Moyes is helping me push on even higher."

"When I came over from France I quickly adapted to life at Brentford. The team were great for fitting me in. I really enjoyed it."

"Thomas Frank was great for me - he helped me both on a footballing and personal level so I can only thank him."

"Now David Moyes pushes me to become a better player and we have a good understanding."

Where do we think he'd really rather be playing right now?
