Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Isn’t it a prerequisite that if we are trying to sign a player that he actually wants to be at West Ham?

Re: Frank Lampard (mostly non WHU)

As well as a contractual duty to stay with Derby he had a moral duty, but I don’t think F.Lampard Jr understands that concept.

Re: ⚽ Chelsea v West Ham Utd: match thread (8/4)

Efficient, effective teams need to :
* Have energy, belief, confidence, commitment
* Press in numbers
* Close down opposition space and time
* Retain possession
* Once possession is lost work as a team to recover it
* Move forward with pace and precision

Do we regularly do any of these?

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

I don’t think that our manager is suited to, understands, or is in tune with, how football is played these days.

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

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

I know that it is early days but I haven’t seen anything yet that tells me that our manager knows what he is doing or is in tune with modern football at the Premiership level.

In over 65 years of supporting West Ham that has to slot into the top ten most inept and gutless performances that I have witnessed. Might even make the top five.

Out of every 10 crosses he attempts around five get blocked, four are wayward, and maybe one is half decent. He holds onto the ball for too long and as a result has two players to contend with rather th...
