Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Regarding Manquillo... "When Manquillo has played as an out-and-out full-back in a defensive four, particularly when the naturally right-footed Spaniard has been used as a makeshift left-back, he has often struggled throughout his Magpies career to date. Yet he has appeared far better suited to play...

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

I don't think we'll go down, even if pellegrini stays until the end of the season.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Toure is a defensive midfielder from the french league that we've been linked with. Dyche been watching him a while too allegedly.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

I like Ings. A hard working, clinical striker, I think he'd work well in a two with Haller. I mentioned him as a target ages ago when liverpool were getting rid. Others on here weren't as keen. He'd have done well for us. So would Rondon. Neither were the big budget mythical 20 goal a season strike...

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

As for Pellegrini, I'm still not convinced - it'll take more than a single match to do that. If I see that level if commitment and effort for a few consecutive matches then I might change my tune. Unfortunately I'm not convinced with any of the options available either if he does go, and I have zero...

Re: Pablo Fornals

Possibly the same people who were saying a while back that Antonio was a liability and should be sold Those people included me and I have no problem admitting that I was completely wrong. I've always liked Fornals and he'll come good. He puts the effort in and doesn't hide. I'm much more likely to ...

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

Regarding Yarmolenko... it wasn't that many games ago that he was considered one of our better players and putting in a shift. I don't he's quite finished just yet. It's more of a mentality thing.

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

We were in freefall and looking almost as hopeless as we do now when he took over. It was a tough gig. I don't think he deserves too much in the way of criticism. He had his task given to him by the board - avoid relegation, and he succeeded. Whichever manager takes over from pellegrini for the rema...

Re: Who Next? The odds

C&H ran an article recently where an unnamed candidate for the new manager role gave his opinion on what was wrong with the current team and what needs fixing. Who would do that? Who does he know? Redknapp?

Maybe a mod can clear this up......

How come this thread has had over 8000 views and only 433 votes?

Seems a bit odd :?
That's 8000 views, but not from unique users. A single person may have viewed this thread 50 times.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

If we bring in a striker to partner Haller, he needs to cover a lot of ground, do a lot of running, and pretty much do a similar job to Antonio.

Shame we didn't buy Rondon.

Re: Who Next? The odds

The Maresca story seems at best like it's a set up for not hiring a manager. They don't want to hire any of the current options, and they don't want a situation like Moyes where they hire a steady hand to keep them up and then get a no-win situation where they either get flack for keeping a stodgy ...

Re: Who Next? The odds

It's great that Enzo Maresca masterminded the win against Chelsea. Good work.

But why? Where was Pellegrini? Job under pressure and a london derby and he hands it all over to his coach?

Seems a little odd. Has he lost faith in his own ability?

That Toure fella looks to be the type we're crying out for - which probably means we won't be signing him. Dyche has been watching him for a while too
