Re: Subbuteo

Never had Subbuteo, sadly, but I used to love looking at the wall chart of all the various teams, and discovering how many teams shared kits (in our case obviously Burnley and Villa, and I'm sure Aldershot and Scunthorpe were on the list). What I had, and used to spend hours playing was 'OwzThat', l...

Re: ⚽ Aston Villa v West Ham United: Match Thread

End to end stuff - could have gone either way, especially after the unjustified red (barely even a foul). Villa lacked the final ball, the nearest they came to scoring was Ogbonna's diving header. We seemed to be frightened to shoot. Rice was very tidy in midfield, put in some great tackles, but is ...

Re: Welcome to the new KUMB Forum

Anything new, any change, takes a while to accommodate.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Norwich City: Match Thread

I'm busy tomorrow so I won't be able to watch on Wembley's links or follow on KUMB These are the types of games against the teams where we should win, but where we massively underperformed last year. The team has the class, but lacked the final pass last week, and lacked a bit of old-fashioned Bonzo...

Re: A plea for common sense: time to end the media blackout

In today's social media world, companies are expected to 'own their digital content', because if they don't, someone else will. It is impossible to do this heavy-handedly or by censorship, so most companies try to get the 'influencers' onside as it were, and invite them to join the conversations, so...

Re: Five players who changed West Ham United's fortunes

Difficult one this - five incoming players that changed the fortunes in the short or long term? Short term it's obviously Kitson/Hartson or Marsh/Chapman, or Paddon/Taylor or even Mike Small, but longer term there were a few more significant arrivals: 1. Bonds - can do no wrong in my eyes, especiall...

Re: Leaked: home and away kits 2019/20

I can forgive the home shirt at a push but NOT the shorts and socks, sorry.

Someone on twitter suggested just swapping them with the away kit - that would make sense and work for me.

DNK - parenthood doesn't make you boring, but it does severely alter your expectations and change what you previously considered to be 'fun', from going out, eating, drinking, dancing, trying to pull etc to staying in and playing menial games with littl'uns, then using 'free' time to escape into bas...
