Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

4 seasons into the dream move, the so called promised land and here we are joint 19th in the table and backing all our hopes on David Moyes saving us for the 2nd time. Whilst I don't think the football was always that dire under Moyes first time round - he got Arnautovic & Lanzini performing for in...

Re: More free travel - Liverpool/Newcastle/Man Utd

All good positive stuff, all a bit of a massive coincidence too... So, since word spread of the protests, superbly organised by Hammers United (a group which is seeking to gain a recognised position as a fan group with the club), and the subsequent success of the protests, we have had each of our ch...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

The state of the current squad is a real issue. None of the expensive Pellegrini recruits are performing to the level that they should. Haller, Anderson, Fornals, Diop, Yarmolenko - have had mediocre seasons at best with odd flit into form. The recruitment and retention of Zabaleta, Roberto, Noble,...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

There was just one piece of good news from this match. At least we won't see that useless plodding Snodgrass again this season and we may yet have seen his last in a West Ham shirt. Rejoice in that news. :scarfer: His absence I would say slightly, but not by much, improves our chances of staying up...

Re: 2019/2020 Relegation Thread

Regardless if I am young or not is irrelevant. Having less of a motivation to watch us play poor Championship sides would be considered normal. Does it stop me supporting our side, No.. does it stop me following them home or away, no again. Do you get the same buzz beating Blackburn away then beati...

Re: 2019/2020 Relegation Thread

Be careful what we wish for, because things could get even worse. I know I would rather watch the Premier league any day of the week and look forward to fixtures home and away against the top sides. I can’t see myself being as half motivated looking at the upcoming fixtures for the forthcoming year...

Re: Protests against the board being planned

The Talksport stance re Paul Colborne is a strange one. In the lead up to the Burnley game and the planned march in 2018, the same Talksport afternoon show had one of the guys behind the RWHAG on a couple of times. Now whilst the guy wasn't subject to an FBO at the time, he was awaiting sentencing f...

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

He's not a back-up keeper now, he'll likely be starting the next 4 games. And given Fabianski has gone down twice already doing the same routine movement – i.e. not an injury from a freak occurrance that is unlikely to be repeated – it would be foolish to think it can't happen again before season's...

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

My only problem with this signing is if he is not fit enough to start on Saturday.

Other than that, Randolph is perfectly fine as a back up keeper, I really do not get the hysteria from some

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

The Guardian reported last night that Fernandes is anticipating better options than us, with Man Utd and Lyon both interested. Thus why talks have slowed. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/jan/07/west-ham-loan-move-benfica-midfielder-gedson-fernandes-stalls Exact quote: "Fernandes is highly...

Re: Declan Rice The Moyes Effect

I feel many have a bit of a blind spot where Rice is concerned. He has had a fair number of poor games this season, along with many others, but seems to escape criticism in most parts. Where I sit he can do no wrong, even when he does, as it's always someone else's fault. Perhaps he has been trying ...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Far, far better option as a back up keeper than what we have currently. Surely that cannot be a bad thing can it ?

Anderson needs to wake up if he is to get a goal. I wouldn't even start him the way he has been strolling around recently

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Manchester United: Match Thread

I'm optimistic for this one. Man Utd are currently a poor team - as poor as they have been since the Ferguson years, and with a questionable manager too. I'll miss the game, which again all but ensures a decent performance and a win, however I'm delighted it was switched to a Sunday so I can watch i...
