Re: Europa Conference League 22-23

I think the Conference League is looked down on in this country (me included) because recently our clubs have been so successful in Europe In Italy, none of their clubs have got anywhere near wihhing the Champions League for ages, so this gives Roma a bit of glory/one upmanship domestically that ot...

Re: Europa Conference League 22-23

It’s not going to be the hype of Europa because that’s the competition above it, just like in reality, Europa isn’t the hype of Champions League. But Roma and Mourinho won it yesterday, they were emotional, the fans were going mental. It wasn’t won by AIK Fishermen FC. The trophy isn’t a silly dish,...

Re: Europa Conference League 22-23

The point is that if we qualify for the Champions League, there is more chance of those things we all want happening (not just once, but more regularly) I think we'd flop 'using' the CL for the most part anyway. I doubt we'd sign elite players as a result of it. I get your point, but honestly I'd j...

Re: Europa Conference League 22-23

Give me the trophy all day long. Bored of getting all excited about being allowed to play 6 games against plastic clubs. I want to actually see someone in a West Ham shirt lift a trophy up in the air, in a random European stadium, after beating a genuine, real European football team that hasn't just...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I really think we should be looking at Ellyes Skhiri from FC Koln who may be available for as little as 10m as he is out of contract next year. He has lead all players in Europe in distance covered per 90, and is very quick in doing so and has some of the best defensive statistics in Europe with 2....

Re: Europa Conference League 22-23

The tournament has certainly gained a lot of legitimacy tonight by having the inaugural trophy won by a club and manager of the stature of Roma and Mourinho.

Now let’s become the second club to win it.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I bet we could get JWP for closer to £50m than £65m.

Much like Rice, clubs would be able to get him from us for a fair bit less than the £150m number we keep throwing at them.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

JWP is more than free kicks. But he's also a free kick merchant. I'd be happy to see him here.

But I will not accept Pablito slander!

A good player BUT we have Benny, Fornals, Lanzini (Lingard?) and even possibly Antonio who are left sided forwards. On the right we have Bowen and tumbleweed.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

We badly need a LB. That’s where I’d like to hear more about players we are going for. Especially as Bassey looks headed for elsewhere.

As it stands, I’d rather play Johnno at LB than Cresswell. That’s clearly a problem with the starting lineup that needs to be corrected.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

If Pope is gettable, then we should get him. He's the best I know absolutely **** all about Aguerd. However, if he doesn't prefer to play on the left side, then why sign him? Zouma, Dawson and Diop all prefer to play on the right side side of the pairing. Aguerd is left footed and plays LCB. I agre...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

To clarify, I should say that I don’t particularly rate him as an extraordinary or special player that we’d be lost without, that is. He’s obviously decent and has some nice traits. I just can’t shake that feeling that he was more suited to helping instil some meanness and professionalism to drag us...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Also, personally I don't know why it has to be sell him or sign no-one else. We signed Soucek for what? 16m, 2 years left on his deal, I don't know why people aren't happy to keep him as 3rd place cover, we've got 50 games again next year. I don't think he should be sold but definitely should go fo...

Re: Welcome Tomas Soucek

Kral was utter pony. Everyone could see it before he signed. I’m a bit miffed as to how Soucek thought he’d be a good idea. And even more so that Moyes signed off on it.

Bit embarrassing really to sign such an obviously poor player just because he was Czech and available to loan.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Baffled why we didn't go in for him, even moreso when I remembered his current chairman is also ours! No clue what happened there, would think maybe Moyes doesn't fancy him but can't see why not? Bargain. It’s a good thing that Hlozek hasn’t just come here because of Kretinsky. Maybe it’s a sign th...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Twitters having a mad one today, I still can't believe the amount of fans who think Soucek needs to go. I think people are high off the fumes of European football and are forgetting where we were a few years ago and how much he stabilised that midfield along with Rice since he signed. People genuin...
