Manuel Pellegrini (Now Sacked)West Ham United’s 17th manager

Shame about Pellegrini - I wish him well. He definitely had his golden moments, but something has gone wrong somewhere to see that kind of slide in confidence - most likely starting with the Roberto situation. He was a poor choice after Fabianski got injured and that started the slide. It starts at ...

Re: Live Football Streaming Links 2019 - 20 Season

Does anyone have a link for highlights or replay they could either post or pm me? I'm usually catching up via fullmatches*****, but their game link is broken.

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

One swallow doesn't make a spring. It took them eight years to find the right manager ? This is really the single biggest issue that addresses all the problems of the last few seasons. Is it really a surprise that it has taken 8 years? We had Avram Grant, who had attracted the attentions of English...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

It makes sense for the new manager to assess the current squad before deciding who to sell. For those that didn't reach their potential before, they might yet come good under Pelle. Also, getting a manager or even players isn't like shopping in a supermarket where you have 20 items in stock and you ...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Well done to the owners for standing by their commitment to invest heavily, back the new manager, and let him build his own squad with the help of a DoF he also picked - credit where it's due.

Now to stand back and hear the echo :D

Re: Jack Wilshere

Welcome Jack, long may you serve the Claret and Blue. Arsenal messed up his rehab several times, probably because he was such an important player to them, they wanted him back too quickly. Wenger even admitted as much publicly. Stress fractures need proper time to heal. It's likely that Jack has a m...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

they had their chance to prove that they had honest intentions about taking West Ham to a new level and did diddly squat. Do you think some of it is down to who is available, by way of managers and players? Seems to me that we haven't had the calibre of manager available that would attract better p...

It's the hope that kills you. No, it is the complete opposite. It's the false expectation that hope always breeds success that kills you. It is the sense of entitlement that kills you.
