Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

It's quite incredible that we're at 420 pages and there's not been a single shred of credible news. Proper stinker of a thread.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Am I the only one that actually thinks having no leaks is kind of boring and yearns for the days of "The Insider" on the official website, and Sullivan's son revealing everything on twitter?

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

If we don't sign an alternative to Antonio, there is something deeply wrong at the club. They can't keep saying their preferred options aren't available. Find someone else. They're stubbornly obsessing over perfect, and ending up with the insane position of having an injury prone and inconsistent 31...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

One of his biggest advocates, but thought he was pretty poor last night. Or at least quite a bit poorer than the Leeds game. He's clearly still adapting and it will be interesting to see what level he ends up at.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I really do have zero faith we will sign a striker. It has been desperately needed for at least three windows but for whatever reason the club seems to think it can do without. It's ****ing mental.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Norwich City: rescheduled match thread

Can anyone explain the logic of playing Lanzini in the deep role rather than Fornals?

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Norwich City: rescheduled match thread

I hope it's Fornals playing deep. I've always wanted to see how he'd do there instead of Soucek. We would keep the ball a lot better, and wouldn't lose too much defensively as Fornals is one of the best tacklers and works extremely hard.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

"- Moyes keeps transfers between him and Newman, apparently." And obviously Ex, "- We want a CB, LB and a ST" Well the fact we want a CB, LB and ST is fairly obvious to anyone with a few brain cells. It's quite hilarious that Ex has clearly been frozen out (he was once well conn...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

It should have been offside. Law 11 does say "Clearly attempting to play a ball" from an offside position is offside, and the fact he doesn’t get to it is irrelevant. Baffling decision but we were the better side. Bowen wasn't in an offside position when Vlasic hit the ball into the keeper.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

Is that also what Leon Osman was attempting to give as possible reason last night on motd2? Confused? You will be, which is why the officials should have to explain one way or another at the stadium then and there ideally, or list match. At least then everyone can argue about a decision knowing wha...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

I think I worked out why our goal wasn't offside. It wasn't because it came off a Leeds player or because Bowen was deemed not to be interfering. It's because although Bowen was offside during the initial touch from Vlasic, Vlasic then stretches out and gets a 2nd touch on the ball, knocking it into...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

We should not sell Diop unless we get a replacement in first. I have zero faith that we would replace him after the Haller fiasco.

I'm expecting a fairly barren three windows TBH. Why would Kretinsky invest more at this stage when he's not in control?
If he knows he is going to be owner in the near future, what difference does it make?

We get one early(ish) second half we will win this comfortably.

Thought Vlasic was poor. He had a couple of runs, and a misfit shot. An improvement from him but still nowhere near a 30m player. Don’t see how he fits in.
You are insane.
