Re: Pablo Fornals

I had assumed he was injured when he didn't play last night, a decent player that will only get better. If an appearance clause is the reason, and it sounds plausible to me, for what other reason is there not to play him? then its yet another example of the squalid ownership

Re: “We Are Really in Trouble”

We (as in the supporters) are not in trouble - its the owners who are, financially that is . Their nice little earner is going to be worth a lot less in a few weeks time.

Re: Manuel Pellegrini sacked

Moyes in his prime at Everton wouldn’t have been fit to lace the boots of Pellers in his pomp. Anyway this board, West Ham London and Moyes are a genuinely perfect fit. They all deserve each other. :thup: Like many of this thread, I would feel more confident of survival or at least a bit of fight b...

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United:Match thread (19/02)

3) Because a narrow defeat isn't as disheartening as a thumping; Supporting West Ham has always been about the performance for me. LOL if you will, but many share that view. With these owners and that type of negative performance, even more will walk away from the OS next season, relegation or no r...

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United:Match thread (19/02)

Absolute joke of a performance. The amount of money we have spent to sit back and accept defeat from the start. That was so painful to watch. What’s with all this commentary about us having all this attacking talent and being to good to be near the relegation zone. :thup: We have got the players wi...

Re: Justin Fashanu Hall of fame (non whu)

Sporting halls of fame celebrate pioneers as well as the most talented. A black, gay footballer coming out on the cusp of eighties football culture, with all that entails, and to this day being the only one willing to do it is more than deserving of a place in the Hall of Fame of a sport. More cajo...

Re: Are our players as good as we think they are?

Unfortunately unlike fans who follow the club through good times and bad times, spending a fortune of their monthly wage packet on going to games buying club merchandise, many if not all players are there to make money whether it be for us or another team. They don't care, they don't have the passi...

Re: Trial seperation

Unfortunately I don't get that expectation any more, except at away games. In fact, I tend to stay in pub longer nowadays ,much less bothered about missing first 5 mins or so (also has advantage of not standing at the queue for security for 20 mins).

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Very true - and to the point. That's why we are such a sh.t club - no respect given to 50 year plus suppoprters, long term ST holders etc, just customers to GSB

Re: Man City (Non-WHU)

I'm normally cynical about big clubs getting away with breaking the rules, or the rules being re-made when a big club breaks them. But this case has been brewing for some time, the evidence is pretty damming, City trying to get out of it on a technicality that won't hold up. The other traditional bi...

Re: Definition of "Spurs" changed...

This Oxford dictionary definition is problematic in loads of ways. Not least of which is that it implies the Jewish community exclusively support Tottenham or are associated with them. Obviously this isn't the case, not least because we ourselves have plenty of Jewish supporters, as do Man City, to ...

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United: MATCH POSTPONED (09/02)

Get the free coach. Gets to the LS at about 2.30am Thurs. What’s the problem? The problem is that I start work at 8am in the morning. While getting the coach leaving the OS at 1pm means taking a day off work. That is in effect two days work lost. Clearly you can afford to do this, but i can't. But ...

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United: MATCH POSTPONED (09/02)

Well there's absolutely no chance for me and many others to go to this ridiculously rescheduled game, after the debacle of sunday. The last train back from Manchester Piccadilly is 9.15pm! This is purely for the sofa fans.
