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

I reckon these journos are on drugs trying to outdo each other.

Ancelotti? With what Delilah, Delilah with what?

Martinez?? ‘King hell, I’m surprised they haven’t started exhuming Shankly.

I wish they’d write about something else.

Based on a narrow 1-0 win over Southampton? Very early to be making such proclamations!
My only ‘proclamation’ is to say that MP is here til summer. Unless someone’s got £15m or so and a better person lined up, which they haven’t.

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

Stuttering but an upturn in fortune since Antonio returned. With Fab back we’d be midtable, which is par. We’ve had a ridiculous month with some ridiculous names put forward - Sam, Moyes, Houghton and even Rewanker. Time for everyone to accept MP is here until summer come what may and put all this d...

Re: RIP Gavros

My sympathies to his family and friends. Gavin was passionate about our Club. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was trying to fund the purchase and transport of a Thames Ironworks ship to be moored outside the OS. He had a vision to make the move expansive and to build our identity. Gavin’s ...

The last 24 hours we’ve seen our membership rocket by almost 10% and it was clear last night that our loyal supporters have had enough.

Re: Something to cheer us all up.

My memory is hazy, but I seem to remember us urging the ref to call it off then urging him not to.

These were the days of Flares and Slippers at the West Side bar.

It's one of those games that about 50,000 claim to have been at.

Re: Its all very Depressing

Why the doom? Health scares, penury, loneliness are real problems. This is knockabout stuff we choose to involve ourselves in to try to get away from worries. We’ve been through this many times before. In fact, it’s our normal state and what has shaped up. The ones I feel sorry for are those that bo...

Re: Who Next? The odds

He's doing a decent job for Bournemouth and seems like a decent man himself, but there don't seem to be any footballing reasons the likes of Arsenal, let alone us, should be chasing him. He has done well keeping hold of players and replacing those that have gone. Matt Richie was a player I would ha...

Anyone watching something on their mobile = 3 month’s immediate custody.

Anyone filming on their mobile = 6 month’s immediate custody. (Aggravated if filming singing in the concourse)

Anyone found in possession of an i pad = 10 year’s immediate custody.

Being interviewed by WHUTV = life.

What are you on?

Fabianski plastered over some serious cracks. We are comfortably top so far this season for conceding clear cut chances, both with or without Fabianski.

Re: Who Next? The odds

I agree with cellar, put it to bed by saying he’s got the job until the end of the season whatever happens. We’re not going to be paying him off and somebody else out at the same time. Even if we did, it doesn’t solve the fact that we need a second striker, an energetic CM and circa £40m in repaid s...
