Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

... Anderson (our "5 stars" signings), they both are not used/not that strong made for this very phisically PL. I tend to agree with you Amigo, but think you're wrong about Anderson. He gets more interceptions and tackles in than half our defenders. He offers more, defensively, than any of our othe...

Re: How much do you care about relegation?

Talk is that everything and everyone are on contracts that terminate with the sell on clause.

In 2 years we might be worth the stock in the Club shop.

Re: How much do you care about relegation?

1st time at home to Liverpool it was huge. Brooking stayed and it was the making of one of our best ever sides. 2nd time at Anfield we'd had an amazing run and it was, strangely, one of the best and most memorable nights of my life. 3rd time at Coventry was a real sickner but we had the defiance of ...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Go back that way as well. It means you skip all the queues to/from Stratford and just change lines.

Just don't tell anyone else....

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I'm bringing family next Saturday to cup game. Looking for a pub that's ok for a pre match pint. Kids are early/late teens so not worried about language but just wondered if Carpenter's Arms was suitable and if so what is the best way to get there from Stratford station please. If I were you mate I...

Re: Protests against the board being planned

I like the way it's been a bit shambolic. What I've admired about Paul and the others is that they are honest, sensible and don't really know what they are doing. In fact they don't really want to be doing it - it's a real ballsache. Now, though, they know what they are doing, a network has grown an...

Re: A vote of confidence [POLL]

The last few posts make for good reading.

The ironic thing is that if they actually gave a couple of the people running the protest jobs in place of a couple of others they currently employ, we would all be better off.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

I’ve been about a bit when it comes to West Ham protests. Todays was the biggest and most significant for nearly 30 years. It was amateurish, largely unknown about, arranged in the last fortnight and was tucked away from the stadium. And that’s what made it so significant and threatening to GBS - th...

The main problem here is only 700 people voted. How many of those attend (or used to attend) regularly?
3,000 ST holders and members voted and a very full report was passed onto the Club in 2014. It makes for an interesting read now.
