Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Bizarre signing for a club with 10x more money then any other premier league club. Possibly an insurance policy should they get relegated. Probably having trouble getting anyone to take the money, anyone better than Chris Wood wants to know they won't be in the Championship next year. Wood is a sol...

Re: David Moyes' Claret and Blue Army!

Haven't been on in a while, but wanted to point out.... this was maybe his best job since he got here, showed a willingness to make structural changes to win the match, good subs etc. He's been really good this season, and looking at his career arc now... it feels like what happens to some players. ...

Re: Takeover talk

Am I missing something on the maths here?? 150m for a 27% stake in club would make a 1% stake 5,555,555 (150m / 27), if you then x that 1% by 100 the club's value is 555m. How do they get to the 'between 600-700' number?? Might have to do with the new shares being issued, they might be a different ...

Re: ✍ Alex Král

Thought he defended well, covered ground. Passing was sloppy, but that's usually the last thing to come when moving to a new team with mostly players you've never played with.

Re: Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd League Cup: Match Thead

Players on are who I expected... but taking off Masu the only pace outside Bowen and leaving on Noble with lead feet and a yellow seems a poor choice.

Re: Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd League Cup: Match Thead

Getting very sloppy in our passing out there. Need fresh legs and an outlet in midfield.

I wish he controlled rebounds better, but Areola is an outstanding shot stopper.

Antonio should be on the bench. He’d be perfect for a final 30 here.
They are correctly saving him for the bigger competitions, he only has so many matches in him.

Re: Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd League Cup: Match Thead

Johnson tried to do too much there, just give it Masu you don't need to try to get into the box then pass out.

Re: Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd League Cup: Match Thead

Noble's strategy of trying to make up for being late by tackling harder is a problem.

We need another CM in January.

Re: Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd League Cup: Match Thead

Watching Diop you can see why he has such tantalizing potential. Not in our system, but the way he plays the ball and looks to get forward and help the attack, he could be such a force in the right setup. Problem is those skills aren't really needed for how we play, and he's inconsistent at the thin...

Re: Is this the new West Ham?...........

Depends what you mean. I think we're probably at a point where momentum and money mean we're not relegation strugglers for a long time. On the other... a lot of the advancement is only on the top level and a bit fragile. The facilities still are shoddy, the academy is still stuck in the past and und...

Re: Is paper thin squad a myth?

Yes and no. We have a decent amount of talent now, but we also do lack like for like replacements at several key positions, notably CF and CM. The return of Masu and addition of Zouma shored up the back line, and the wide attackers were already strong. Kral could be a key depth add as well, but gene...
