Re: Best atmosphere at Upton Park

most of my favourite ones already mentioned. Eintracht Frankfurt and Den Haag in 1976 were both very special and the QPR FA Cup 5th round game in 1975 was brilliant in terms of atmosphere when we came back from 1-0 down to win. Ipswich too when Matty Etherington scored in the play offs. Nearly makes...

Re: ⚽ Everton v West Ham United: Match Thread

I'm not saying I enjoy those tactics (because they should get yellows & reds) but we probably don't have anyone who does similar for us.

Re: ⚽ AFC Bournemouth v West Ham United: Match Thread

lots of moans about Roberto and he did look dodgy but I haven't seen any mention of a crucial save he made when it was 1-2 in staying on his feet to deny Wilson. If that had gone in we would have been dead

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Have we had the old line yet from Sully that we did everything possible to get Gomez but coudn't quite get it over the line? It's the same old story nearly every year. Different player, same result. Surely we must have known that we would have had to pay the full amount of the trigger clause in one ...

Re: Liverpool outrage at Man City Song

Someone mentioned an asteroid hitting Madrid option, how's that looking? Definitely my favourite outcome! If I have to pick one I'm leaning towards Spurs but not because I want them to win it but I have too many gooners around me. They'll be devastated!! :scarfer: Yeah, cancel the tournament now an...

Complete bottle job by the lot of them. Their left back Jordi Alba was appalling. Arthur looks like a world beater by comparison.

That 4th goal from a corner was Sunday morning Hackney Marshes stuff

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

A decent start by him in terms of how we play football but finishing 10th or 11th has hardly set the world alight. We managed that under Big Sam and Curbishley. The transitional season excuses will not hold water next season, so he will need to perform, although we all know that will depend on how m...

Re: Weekends other games (04/05/19)

usual sky love-in between Martin Tyler and Garragher. At one stage at 2-2, Tyler said "i'm just wondering if the gantry is big enough for you to run around on if Liverpool score again Jamie....yes, i think it is".
Vomit time!

This post on the fighting cock did actually make me smile: You're right, the history books will forever show that scummy clusterfuck of a club as being the first away scorers and the first away winners, unless we do something about it. Let's build a new stadium and move ! The next one didn't: Think ...

Re: Weekend Other fixtures 26th-29th April

Uddersfield were awful. I think they said Bacuna has now started 16 games for them and they have lost every single one, although he does look half decent!

Re: Top Half Next Season

Yet another season of mediocrity in both cups and the league.13th or 14th simply isn't good enough.

Re: Weekends other games 12th to 15th April

Fair play to Spurs I guess. What irks me most though is that it shows just how far behind them we have fallen, both on and off the pitch

This is a true story. I have had several ankle operations, and my surgeons best friend ( who he went through medical school with) is a consultant in London.

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

There's got to be something amiss when all of us on here can see that having Noble and Rice in the middle on their own together simply doesn't work. I've lost count of how many times this has happened now and still he persists with it. As soon as I saw that line up tonight I knew it was a question o...
