Re: VAR is not the problem, the Law is...

the law, lets call it "The Thierry henry law" was brought in, and justified to "clear up an anomally" in a game that was played 10 , yes 10 years ago ...where he was on the six yard line, ball was out of his control, he stopped it, then scored.. how the fuckety we find ourselves here, ten years on, ...

Re: RIP Gavros

Just devastated about this- first met Gav on the early WHo tournaments at UP, then we arranged a WHO vs East German Hammers game - Gav sorted everything with the Hammers pub and the pitches at Central Park- thats what he did, just quietly got on and sorted stuff out. Saw him a couple of times a seas...

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

Exactly this. This is likely Pellegrini's last gig, the intention should have been to get a high profile manager in like Pellegrini, change the mentality of this club and finally make us look attractive to a good upcoming manager. There is no plan or identity, we dont buy a particular type of playe...

3-0 Burnley

Can't see us doing anything in this game. They will work harder, want it more and bully our flair players off the pitch.

I'd like to be wrong here.
i have been predicting this for a couple of weeks . Cant see any hope to either score or keep it under 3. #darkdays

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

given our pathetic exit from the carabao; a practically first choice ( his choices) squad; very few " suffer8ing" from international break travel and OF COURSE, no ****ing European games, he's way way behind where he should be and the team had flatlined, just like we alwasy do, just earlier than nor...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Sheffield United: Match thread (26/10)

there is no way wilshere should start. he is too slow and does nothing. I think fornals is ahead of him at the moment on what evidence? Hes done absolutely **** all. I would normally suggest wilshire comes on as a sub- a role which he's done very well ( manu etc) his pace isnt going to be exposed a...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Sheffield United: Match thread (26/10)

last season we finally got a result at everton last season , it was in making a fluid three in the middle ( rice/noble/obiang) work, with at least one of the three providing "extra extra" DM coverage and working as a unit with and without the ball. With anderson on the left, yarmo on the right and a...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

People who think we will come top six are a bit cloud cuckoo land IMHO We are not a bad side. We are actually quite good but so are lots of other teams. We are not one of the best six sides Our only wins are are against two teams who might get relgeated and a Man U second string. And there first st...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Was any evidence offered of 700 ASTH or was it a number presented, and simply accepted ? I don't believe for moment there are 700 normal ASTH. I believe there are 500, roughly, of those plus 200 Bond holders who have joined the scheme for the simplicity of not having to apply, as they are entitled ...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

There are people in corporate who go home and away, like UG, so it is unfair to clump them in with the corporate who are minded to grab tickets and not even sure they will use them or just hand them out to people who fancy a boys jolly weekend in Bournemouth. You wont be seeing them at Villa away. ...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Manchester City: Massacre Thread (10/8)

For me, looking at that squad we just seem completely one-paced in midfield and that is where I would be targeting if I was an opposition manager. Kick Wilshere out of the game, double-up on Rice, push the full-backs on and wait for our ageing and injury-prone midfield to tire and wilt. this is spo...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Probably in the minority but I think the ballot is a good idea. I understand supporters would be gutted about "just" missing out on tickets, being a loyal away supporter for years, etc. I would also get rid of the AST. 100% ballot would be the fairest way. No more PP, no more complaining about PP. ...
