"Sullivan has been quoted as saying “we always come straight back when we go down”."

So I must have dreamt that playoff loss to Palace.

If anyone going needs help or advice about Manchester or City on match day then just ask out loud. Always happy to help. I've had a private message or two over the years as well with interesting queries... I'll refrain from naming you. Whilst I crave a solid win after some disappointing results - p...

Re: Home Form

It would be interesting to see it season by season. Without knowing the detail, I'd guess the Payet year was probably the best and fairly atypical - whilst Allardyce used to make a big deal about winning at home. He seemed to have this idea that winning in front of someone else's team was of less v...

Re: Welcome, Sebastien Haller

The more I see him the more I feel he hasn't got what is needed in the English game. He's not nasty enough he's not tough enough, barely wins his share of headers and on the deck he's too often caught on his heels. He could quite easily take some heat off us in retreat by being more positive in his...

The month of January can f*ck right off, dark wet and windy.
February had better get its skates on as its not much better. Thank God we've had West Ham to keep us cheerful.

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

I actually thought it was a great bit of management giving Ngakia his debut against Liverpool. A game we were highly expected to lose and let the young fella burn up his first game nerves there and then. Come Saturday against Brighton if selected he will feel a foot taller a lot more energized and ...

Definitely the 147.

My maximum break is about 13 or something equally ****.

We had a bowling night at work once and I was complete Sanchez for 2 games and on the third was getting strike after strike and got ludicrous high score.
That's the beer kicking in. :lol:

Watch Liverpool in the 70's and 80's.

It's looking tight. Being mauled a Burnley is up there with the worst I have seen from us.

If we go down, will ST prices come down or just not go up?
In the past it has always been the same price "but you get more games"

Re: West Ham United v Everton: Match Thread

He is too isolated and needs a partner alongside him. His percentage at winning headers is far better than Carroll. We have not had a decent goal scoring forward for years and the biggest reason is only playing 1 up front. I would sacrifice a 1 in 10 player like Lanzini or Anderson for a second str...

It seems that the FA cup tickets are not loaded onto your cards but are printed tickets.
I got mine today
There is also a rumour that you only get your additional point if you actually use the ticket to go through the turnstile.
Has anyone heard this?
