Re: 1979-80 season revisited

My first season of going home and away, only missed two games all season. Cambridge at home in the snow on a Friday night (iirc) the now famous half time streaker dancing to Mike Oldfield. WBA away in the cup was special, Parkes unreal and as previous poster mentions WBA were a very decent side at t...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

With regard to our successful pass rate, I reckon a high percentage are between Diop and Ogbonna across our back line. Drives me mad it happens so often. Same. We seem incapable of going from right to left or left to right without making at least 3 passes along our back line. By the time we have mo...

Re: VAR - yes or no ?

And can we at least show the decision being made, or afterwards why it has been made, to the people that have paid good money to be in the stadium to watch the game. Why wasn't yesterday's overruling of the offside shown on the screens ?

Re: Four years ago today

I'd been to Anfield numerous times prior to this game and spent most of the journey up there telling my son (who was visiting for the first time) how we always got beat (usually comfortably) and had only won there once in my lifetime (I was five months old). At two nil with not long to go he looked ...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

I'm an AST and started the season on 25 points Phil. Just logged into my account to find I've now got 26 points (which includes one each for Brighton and Watford) so as per your comment Phil it looks like 24 was the maximum one could start the season with. They've docked me a point ten days ago, re...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Starting the season the max points and AST could have is 24 which includes both AFC Wimbledon cup games. I'm an AST and started the season on 25 points Phil. I actually called the TO about this when i saw the allocation bands as one said 25+. As I've not missed a match for many years I wondered how...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Everton: match thread (30/03)

Ogbonna, Fab and Rice are the only ones who weren't awful. Snodgrass is done as a winger. Has no invention or trickery in him. Lanzini isn't a winger. Perez isn't worth my time. Hernandez isn't going to make his own chances. Diop isn't good in the air. Obiang isn't in Noble's league. 100% agree Wil...

Re: New Tottenham stadium (non-WHU)

I make Spurs slight favourites in the Champions League Vs City, as City have too much on their plate as it is. Something's got to give and reckon this'll be it. I think Spurs should make the most of it as they won't win it as long as Barcelona are in it. Missing out on the top 4 next season would b...

Re: Last Seven Matches: Predict

Before the game on Saturday I predicted eight points from our last eight games with two wins, two draws and four losses. Broken down further I expect 2 home wins, a draw and a loss with 3 losses and a draw on the road. I had Huddersfield down as one of the wins, where we picked up or lost points in ...

Re: Fake injury - time wasting

The joke one yesterday was the fella who went down injured as Huddersfield made their way back from celebrating the third goal in front of their fans. He had managed to run off then back onto the pitch for the celebration then collapsed in a heap on the edge of our box. Moss motioned three times to ...

Re: Arthur Wait stand -How does it get a safety cert ?

Like I said in another post, this stand has been antiquated for some time and it's not just the view from the back. I remember posting on another forum about 15 years ago that you couldn't hear the PA either so if there was an emergency you wouldn't hear any announcements. If there was an emergency...
