Can't say I know too much about the finances of Newcastle but are you referring to the £150m(ish) loan that they still owe him?

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers Vs West Ham United: Match Thread

With Wolves lining up with wing backs it will be very important for Anderson and Antonio to stay wide and keep the wing backs pinned back. Otherwise our flanks will be in all sorts of trouble.

I think I'd rather stick Fredericks out there if Cresswell is not available.

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Weirdly losing to AFC Wimbledon in our last match has in some way restored my faith in the game, even though it was at the expense of our beloved Club full of multi millionaire piss taking players. It briefly reminded me that it's not always about the money in the game but the purity of it that we ...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Can't believe that any supporter of this club would think differently to be honest. Like I said, I stopped really caring a long time ago. When it finally sunk in (I was in denial for a while) that money was more important than football I switched off. I tend to ignore everything that goes on outsid...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

The worse we've had. As for the wider football community, undoubtedly there are a few other offenders who surpass them. In the PL they are out on their own .... and they don’t have much competition in the championship either. Hardly a ringing endorsement or accolade. The damage they’ve done to the ...

Personally I'd give that accolade to the Icelandics which was a complete disaster form start to finish.

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Most clubs have in the premier league, it goes with the rapid increase in money and rise in value of players, it's hardly an indicator that this club has done well in transfer windows. You're clutching at straws mate.... now where's that list of the 50 odd strikers we signed that hadn't scored a go...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

In isolation that sounds like a decent sum, but it isn't when you stack up the window after window of considerable poor / non investment and punts on players. This squad needs considerably more investment in it, let's see if the muppets have the balls to do something they have only ever done once b...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

And yet, despite the style of football arguably improving, we'll likely finish no higher than we did last season. Who is the blame for that? I'm not sure it's as simple as laying blame at someones door. Tell me, how much would you class as ambitious? £200m, £500m? Perhaps it is the type of signing ...

I thought you were a Spurs fan when I read this bit, but then I read the rest. We spent close to £100m in the summer.

Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers Vs West Ham United: Match Thread

Will be a good test of Pellegrini's big team mentality. West Ham teams of the past would let the weekends game affect them and lose this game. Whereas the big teams would be looking for a reaction from the weekend and would dish out a hiding (how many times have we dreaded playing a big club after t...

Re: Mark Noble - West Ham Legend

Didn't realise you had to be the best player to have ever played for us to be classed as a club legend. Noble has played well over 400 games for us, through thick and thin, over 13 years. Captained the club for over 4 years and never been undermined by other members of the squad. Stood up when other...

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th manager

I'd be calling for his head after a similar total humiliation of a result like last night, not just because of last night. If he makes a habit of doing that in the Cup, then I don't see why it's so unreasonable to suggest it's probably time for him to go. If you're happy for us to keep getting knoc...

Another one of those shocking defeats in the Cup and I wouldn't hesitate to call for him to go. :lol: State of some of you lot. Bad result, horrific performance but hardly the first time we have been embarrassed and won't be the last. Calling for a manager's head because of a bad cup result is utte...

Same reason 99% of players stay at their current club then.
