Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Anyone have any idea where's the best place to park around Hackney Wick? Looking to arrive 10:30 ish and head to Kent after the game. Had a search and couldn't find much.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 26 days remaining

Only way I can see Noble keeping his place and not having to be replaced is if we play a kind of Man City formation ----------------Fabianski----------------- Fredericks-Diop-Ogbonna-Cresswell ------------------Rice---------------------- -----------Noble------Wilshere--------- Yarmolenko------------...

Re: January transfer window

For all the people suggesting Smolov, here's what Tony Henry has said in the past about signing Russian Players “Only one of the players I brought to Everton didn’t work out, and that was Diniyar Bilyaletdinov. “He had a great first season but Russian players don’t ever settle in England.” Plus he h...

Re: West Ham United v Liverpool match thread

I actually think Fernandes looks better at wing back than centre mid so happy for him to play there. Antonio wouldn't get into the team at the moment anyway and happy for Rice & Kouyate to get a start with Winston in defence. Happy with the team Beavis Danzig put up earlier. Carroll to come on and b...

Re: West Ham Utd v Manchester City: match thread

Ogbonna obviously the weak link in terms of mistakes this half but Noble has been dreadful. Just like last season. Slowing the ball down and passing sideways or backwards constantly.
I also don't think Fernandes should play in the middle. Games seem to pass him by when he's not out wide.

We're going to have to sign another Goalkeeper .
All that means is a few people have bet on Adrian to move to Palace, not that he actually will. I think he'll stay.

That and no defensive discipline. He's all over the place positionally. I like cheik but he's not really pushed on at all since his debut season. If anything he's got worse.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2017

FWIW i dont think his ability is in doubt, its his fitness / injury record Completely agree mate. I have serious reservations over his injury record. We've been awful managing injury prone players in the past (Carroll, Dyer, Ljungberg, Bellamy etc.) The only contract we should offer him is a low ba...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2017

For a player with his skill set, who's been mostly deployed as an attacking midfielder, his numbers are very poor. I always thought he has been mostly a deep playmaker or a box to box midfielder. And stats are misleading. Not saying Wilshere is as good as the other two below but stats aren't that b...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2017

My reading of Jinxed comments is Arnie and Chicarito medicals have been done, terms agreed. Just crossing the t's and dotting the i's to do. Transfers can get hijacked at that late stage but we're confident. If Keita comes then I'd expect to see 2 of Snodgrass, Feghouli, Ayew leave. I'd be well up f...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2017

We've been linked loosely to Dembele (Celtic) today. Read something about us as one of the teams that have enquired, but that much bigger fish are after him. They'll all cost too much. We'll try and loan a striker from a big club and rely on what we have. Maybe sign an ageing striker who's past it ...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2017

Would be nice if we went for a young up and coming striker like Dolberg (Ajax), Werner (Leipzig) or Dembele (Celtic). They'd probably all cost £30+ million but transfers have gone crazy.
