What you're doing, is citing the merits for having Mark Noble in the team, which is fine. I agree, he should be starting.
You're also comparing him to Kevin Nolan and suggesting he's had a better season, which is fine, I agree.
As I said, I don't give a monkeys about that.
All I'm saying, is Mark Noble is ****ing thick. No more, no less.
In terms of the modern day footballer, isn't really ground breaking.
I've said it for 5 years and will continue to do so while he is still demonstrating said dumbcuntery.
I understand your point, but I think it's a bit unfair to mention Scandinavian Hammers in the same sentence as some English WHU supporters who go the odd game. Some people from abroad (like myself) do a lot of effort to get to games (holidays on work, travels,...) so it's not obvious to go to every single away or home game. I think it would be a bit unfair to use the PP system for us (although I think we would just edge it as we do 5-6 away games every season?). BUT 30 tickets is a lot indeed for such a popular away game, I can imagine that there were a couple of tourists amongst them, although I wouldn’t really bet on it. We were able to get 4 for yesterday btw.
Just watched it again and i must admit in hindsight in knowing the result how easy we dealt with them.
They huffed and puffed and passed for the sake of it but got absolutly no where.
As i say a lot easier watching it when you know the result and in truth we had the better clear cut chances
to improve on our lead.
Rars , with the exception of about 5 players they are all ****ing thick .They're bound to be , they've done **** all but play football all their lives .
Haha, think I meant "we gave them time on the ball", deliberately passing to them would be a strange tactic I agree.
Serves me right for trying to be positive!
Possession stats mean nothing, the only one that matters is 1-0. We weren't great but we got the points, how many times have we said the opposite? I'll settle for a gritty away performance and three points every other week. Now let's move on.
Im not having a pop at the fans mate...you try for whatever you can and see how good your relationship is with the people in the right places. I know i do
My problem is with WHUFC and the way they allocate the tickets...before they even go on sale.
I saw stewards, i saw people who work in the office and hotel, the girls who work with the disabled, Saturday ticket staff and girls who work in the corporate areas....all in the best seats !?
I've been told off before for NOT having a clip board....
I know there is always swaps at every game...and thats good.
I'm on about how many tickets were actually allocated (and many STHs didn't get any)....after the club took their chunk for officials etc.
We both know that these people weren't there the week before at St Marys.
These people should be looked after the sths priority points (and that includes the International fans)
Was able to drink in a pub at Uni of Sussex because I have a mate who goes there.. They were forcing everyone to show student IDs, saw quite a few who looked out of place. We stopped by afterwards, and there were a few older hammers trying to get drinks and minding their own business. Out of nowhere, a few OB come running in, grab one of the blokes and try to force him out. They did, but he smashed up a glass door on the way out... Quality. Feel for those who had a hassle with the matchday experience, seems an odd location for a stadium. I wonder if the local area will develop at all.
I am still over the moon at last night's result. That was one of the most difficult matches we will face all season and to come through it unscathed and keeping a clean sheet too is a real positive. I think we will also battle out a couple of hard fought 0-0 draws on the road this season too and I can think of a couple of places right now where I will gratefully accept 0-0 too. What has improved this season and for me, it is terrific to see, is how so much better we are when we don't have the ball and that has been so much our problem for about as long as I have supported us, which is more years than I care to remember. We have totally disregarded this very important element to the game before as a whole deep seated ethos embeded in our psyche, has dismissed this in our quest to play attractive, free flowing football that has for the greater part got as absolutely nowhere
In case you have forgotten how eloquent footballers are these days:
Noble looked a better player when he has better players around him, look how well he linked up with Tevez & Zamora that season.
All three seemed to read, where each other would be.
For a thick player he got on the end of a couple of great Tevez crosses, seemed to read them O.K.
Not saying he's been brilliant since but was stuck out wide for a couple of seasons which didn't help, he hasn't the pace to be a wide man.
Think he is the only one that try's the clever pass, doesn't always come off but at least he shows some invention.
I like Mark but do get frustrated with the free kicks he gives away on the edge of the area, but at least he seems to be trying to stop the player or shot as his dislocated thumb yesterday proved.
I couldn't get a ticket despite going to a few away games already (including Southampton) so I went to see Bruno Mars at Brixton Academy instead.
I'm very pleased with how this panned out...
I bet he could count how many players up front we've been playing with...unlike our fantastic manager
