The way Felipe Anderson is playing at the moment, I don’t think there would be any qualms if he was on the bench.
Just because he is our record signing and the money we’ve paid for him, he shouldn’t be a confirmed starter. If you are not performing, you are like everyone else.
It would send out a good signal to everyone else if he was on the bench for a game or two. We can see that Anderson isn’t quite reaching the heights we think he can so surely the manager can see this too?
There have been people talking about how West Ham have been ‘found out’ and how Pellegrini isn’t really changing things depending on the opposition.
But now he really needs to look at changing things.
