Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Leeds Utd: match thread

Very last minute but does anyone fancy two free tickets to today’s game? I’m stuck out of town so happy to give them away. Tried to give them away on Twitter but everyone interested seems to obviously be trying to get them to resell - the one requirement I have is that they go to an actual West Ham ...

Re: ⚽ Arsenal vs West Ham Utd: match thread

P.S. My only option as yet is the Pfzer booster and that I won't be having. Most I know have been poor with it, including guy who sits next to me in BM Upper, my immediate family and friends (2 of which have been hospitalised and 1 in ICU) so I think I'll put booster on hold until they have an alte...

Re: ⚽ Rapid Wien vs West Ham Utd: match thread

I think we’re developing some good competition for starting places in the Premier League. And that’s the good thing about playing on all these fronts: it should be a chance for players to play their way into contention, and be rewarded for performing in midweek with a start at the weekend. For me th...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd vs Genk: match thread

Anyone interested in a couple of tickets for tonight's game? 1 adult, 1 over-65 (notionally). Free to a good home as I'm stuck outside of London and think it's too late to relist them (also always irritates me to let GSB make extra money out of my bad diary planning). Drop me a DM if you fancy them ...

Re: On the spot

Soucek seems like a no-brainer to me. Had a good record as Slavia's penalty taker (10 scored, 3 missed) including scoring in the Champions' League and Europa League. And, crucially, I trust him not to do something stupid, in a way that I don't trust Antonio or Benrahma. And I just don't think that R...

Re: E Ticketing Fiasco -or not?

I personally haven't had any problems either times I've used the barcode (not the QR code) at the Atalanta or Leicester games. And my 75yo dad seemed to find it ok with a printed ticket. But the queues outside the turnstiles for Leicester were incredible, worst I've ever seen and definitely the leas...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Atalanta: match thread

Impulse bought a ticket for this cos it's only a tenner and my other half is away for the week so can't judge me for going to a pre-season game! First one I've been to since a curtain raiser against Roma maybe a decade or more ago? Think Carlton Cole scored the winner... Really like Atalanta, which ...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2021

I take James Pearce at The Athletic pretty seriously, so have to assume the Bowen link is real. I don't find it so improbably: he's still young, won't break the bank, has a bit of Premier League experience. Tbh though, I'm not sure he makes my preferred West Ham XI, so don't mind if he moves on for ...

Re: Andriy Yarmolenko

I actually find myself a big defender of Yarmolenko's output for us. In terms of minutes played, I think he must have one of the best goal involvement ratios of player over the last 5 years. He scores fairly regularly despite limited minutes, makes a few goals and is often involved in the pre-assist...

Re: Euro 2020 - Who Wins?

France are definitely the smoking hot favourites. I think Germany are an outside shout. There in horrible form so everyone has written them off but just look at that squad – Neur, Hummels, Rudiger, Kimmich, Gundogan, Muller, Havertz, Kroos, Goretzka, Sane, Gnabry...etc – and they have to be in with ...

Sorry Nick, then you’ve your head in the sand fella Well look, I’m sure there are some people who have an ‘agenda’. Probably. Though I don’t know, firstly, what this agenda would be, or, secondly, what they’d hope to achieve. But any criticism of Benrahma is batted back by claims of an ‘agenda’. Li...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Everton: match thread

So where’s the criticism of Coufal for the one that hit the post? Or Bowen for missing the rebound? But Bowen has scored fairly regularly since his move from Hull. I don’t rate him *that* highly but he’s certainly delivered in a more quantifiable way than Benrahma. And Coufal is a right back who, f...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Everton: match thread

Wow, some of you were watching a different game to me. I thought we were decent, 70% possession but again, a failure to provide cutting edge. Everton managed the game well and they've got a very expensive team (and coach) to do that. These things happen – compare that performance to the one we put i...

God, it feels weird being expected to win a game... I think with all the injuries and the level of performance lately, I would happily forgive this team an off-day tomorrow. I'd prefer them to play with a bit less pressure (this is helped by the fact that I'm quite ambivalent about the prospect of E...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd vs Arsenal: match thread

A game to remind the neutrals that football is at its most fun when played by two teams playing badly. Thought Lingard had such a brilliant first 30 minutes that I would've given him 9/10 no matter how the game progressed. But we were pretty fortunate to find ourselves 3-0 up, mainly via Arsenal's i...

It’s all very well saying, with the benefit of hindsight, that we should’ve bought a backup striker, but I don’t remember anyone saying that 9 days ago when the market was open.

Re: ⚽ Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd: match thread

It is what it is: they're a good, free-scoring side and I thought we defended very well, especially having seen Ogbonna go off early. I thought everyone was superb at the back. But lack of squad depth told – everyone looked gassed (unsurprising since they looked gassed against Fulham three days ago)...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Liverpool: match thread

How Benrahma is being singled out before Antonio or even Rice is a bit off. I think the thing about Benrahma is that – through no fault of his own – he's carried an enormous burden of potential. And especially when he was not playing, his presence out of the XI put a lot of pressure of comparison o...
