He won’t start. We have a team of players who have all earns their starting spots

It's not an opinion, it's a fact, The interview with Raya is online and available for viewing. He does not say "he was not a foul" or similar phaselogy.

Apology accepted.
Did he say it was a foul? The apology that should be forthcoming is for your rude and uncalled for comments.

No he didn't say it was a foul, he didn't say that the moon is made of cheese either, or that Norway is in Africa. All of which are irrelevant to your assertion that he said that it wasn't a foul when he didn't. That is not an opinion, as said above, you can still listen to his words.

Mate you have been so rude recently. I know everyone is struggling at the moment but there is no need for it.
Sometimes we say silly things on here but there is no need to be so aggressive.
You do a great job running this and it's a lifeline for a lot of us. It's nice to be nice.

Hoping he's the best right sided centre back at the club ( nothing personal just means he'll make us better). At the moment only the coaching staff know and luckily they're pretty good at their jobs.

I thought he looked solid, read the gamed well and some fantastic distribution. Not quite sure if he was a fault for the first one or if Toney got in his way but I’d say it was an encouraging full debut.

First one was caused by Rico's excellent headed lay-off to their scorer.......🙄

Yes, that header was pretty clueless -- surely Rico could have done something better in that situation. Reid was solid I thought; a pairing with Pinnock might prove best but Mads Bech has done well overall.

Always talking to the other defenders... except when Rico was caught on the right. Very good long-range passing out wide, a great pity we couldn't capitalise on the space of the left of their defenders, though.

If he doesn't start alongside Pinnock on Saturday then I will really start to question Frank.

Thought he did well last night. His distribution was better than I was expecting and even his headed clearances went to one of our players (which is something we don't normally do well!).

Noticed that to in particular first half. Some nice cushioned headers to the midfield allowed us to regain possession easier in first half

Agree but not sure if he is up to 2 games in 3 days yet.
But we're now in a position where Pinnock, who's had a 5-day break, can come in and it's whether he plays with Sørensen, who really is due a break, or Goode. Having four centre backs that can rotate (with the chance of Jansson later) is going to make us much stronger.

Very solid tonight - won almost everything in the air. Good signing in an area we needed cover and good to see Pinnock more last ease on the left hand side of the defence. Pleasing to get 3 goals but delighted with a clean sheet.

Really good performance. Other teams will run at him and test his legs more than Wednesday but a colossus in the air today.

Looked very very good. Whether he can play 2 / 3 games a week is going to be a challenge but with MBS having to cover left back we don’t have a lot of alternatives at present. Centre Back at least is the one position where less about physical fatigue in playing game after game but mental fatigue.

All my west ham mates said to me "before his injuries he would still start for us now"

If he stays fit, I think he's a better player than Janson, however does not have the same leadership qualities maybe.

f*** me, what a problem to have.

Superb, so assured he must have been one hell of a player in his prime, just hope he keeps fit.

Different gravy! Won everything in the air, organised, was ‘smart’ winning fouls, brings the ball out and has outstanding distribution. If he can play back to back games he will make a significant difference!

It's worth taking a second to consider where we would be now if he hadn't joined us. Up somewhere without a paddle imo

Excellent. Can't see Pontus getting back into the side!

Strong and confident from start to finish this evening. Looked like he’d been playing in that back four for years.

Thought he was excellent and much improved from his previous start.. Won everything in the air and used the ball well.
