Ben Johnson
Not really good enough is he? Must be shipped out in the summer alongside Benrahma, Anderson, Lanzini and Yarmolenko.

Playing out of position is a straw man. This chump can't make simple passes to team mates, head the ball or mark properly. I don't know how he made it as a professional.

Fraser
I'd say he was relatively decent had a couple of good runs but nothing came of them,he's limited.
Defensively ok but no better than Johnson has been, a collective defensive error for their goal where Coufal wasn't tight enough,Balbuena didn't intercept the cross and Fredericks didn't mark Werner.
If you actually watch Fredericks his positional positions are poor,constantly looks like he doesn't actually know where he is. We need better next year if we're in Europe.
Johnson will get better,Fredericks won't and is injury prone. He's had enough time to show us if he's any good.He's not.

Re: Ben Johnson
He was decent, far from excellent. As usual his hesitancy, bad passes and one abysmal cross broke our attacks down.

But understandable on his wrong foot, defensively I thought he was very good

Re: Ben Johnson
You have to be odd, to say the least, to use the fact that Fredericks is actually improving (a pleasant surprise) as a stick to beat another player.

Re: Ben Johnson
Anyone digging at any of the subs is a cunt.

Firstly we didn't look like scoring before they came on so why are they shit because we didn't look like scoring after.

Second we were down to ten men not long after they came on.

Posters who come on here to have a regular dig at individual players are funny.

I think they have a micro willy.

Re: Ben Johnson
Johnson's learning his game - young players can't all be Bobby Moore or Declan Rice, and you have to cut them some slack.

Re: Ben Johnson
This chump was put to shame by Fredericks' level of performance today. As soon as Johnson came on for him he gave the ball away countless times.

League 1 player at best.

Give the lad a break... Hes young and will learn and is playing out of position.

Re: Ben Johnson
I'd agree he is not first choice and is in need of regular gametime to build confidence and get up to match speed. He isnt always on the same wavelength as other players and yes he isnt a flying wing back with an amazing left footed cross. He's really a defensive player playing on the wrong side. Thing is he might find it hard to get regular playing time in the Championship as well. Competition for places is tough. With our lack of depth he is useful but not doing him any favours being in and out of the team in different positions.
Decent player and prospect, home grown and probably cheap. I hope at some point if it doesnt work out that he can breakthrough here that he can build a career elsewhere.

Re: Ben Johnson
Half of the blame goes to Moyes for playing him out of position and playing him at all.

With Cresswell+Masuaku out, we should go 4 at the back with Ogbonna as LB

Totally agree.

Johnson just isn't at the required level. He was out of his depth against Newcastle, was at fault for their winner and was poor in possession.

My view on Johnson is not just based on Saturday. I remember a game earlier on this season, in fact I think it was in the friendly against Bournemouth where he got murdered everytime Bournemouth went on the attack. He got shipped off before halftime and replaced by Fredericks.

I do feel sorry for him that he isn't getting opportunities in his natural right back position, but let's be clear, he is way down the pecking order and is streets behind Coufal and not as good as Fredericks.

A loan move i the Championship would be best for Johnson. He needs game time in his favoured position. He won't get that at West Ham.

I would think that Moyes will go with Cufal and Fredericks next season on the right, but he must know that he needs to bring in a natural left back to compete with Cresswell.

Re: Ben Johnson
In what way is posting a thread with an opinion about a current player on a West Ham forum seeking attention? By that logic, all threads posted on this forum are "attention seeking".

I hate to break it you you On The Ball but I'm not Faux Bare, so wind your neck in son.

Re: Ben Johnson
How has you conclude that Johnson has overtaken Fredericks? Fredericks has been out injured and is clearly Coufal's understudy on the right hand side while Johnson plugs a hole at LWB.

I would not be surprised if Moyes bombs both Fredericks and Johnson out in the summer and gets in a new right back, as both are not good enough to start. That said, I think Fredericks is a handy squad player on the right hand side so might be retained.

Johnson is simply not good enough. To not be able to pass to a team mate, or make sensible decisions at his age shows there is no hope for him at this level. He will end up in the lower leagues like so many of our previous prospects.

Roby 12:16 Mon Apr 19
Re: Ben Johnson
They need to decide his best position and let him stick it at.

I’d say he’s a right back so should be back up to the 29 year old Coufal, play him as a sub or in the early stage cup games.

Shift Fredericks who it seems he’s overtaken anyway.

No need to write the kid off just yet.
