Re: Worst team of the decade

I know it was last decade, but any player from this decade would struggle to fit into a team we had under Zola from 2008-2010. . Kovac, Lopez, Upson, Dyer, Tristan, Benni McCarthy, Savio, Mido, Faubert, Quashie, Luis Jiminez Plus like likes of Bowyer, Boa-Morte, Illunga who were once decent and just...

Re: Depressing Question

Not quite answering your questions, but these players have left over recent years to play for big teams (I'll let others argue if they are bigger then us) Adrian, Payet, Demba Ba (Chelsea, via Newcastle), Ravel Morrison (Lazio, played 7 games) Simone Zaza went to Valencia after he left us & Carlton ...

Re: ⚽Oxford United v West Ham United: LC R3 Match Thread

It's sad to think we will never win this trophy. It'll get scrapped in the next 10 years. All the years of focusing on the league & nothing to show for it.

Re: West Ham 2019/20. A guide/warning

The team very much has a 90-00s feel to it, when it was just fun to watch game by game. We didn't win anything or even have lengthy spells in Europe, but we had lots of attacking quality & lots of really bad defenders.

I had to pick a team from the first ever game I went to. West Ham Vs Emley. Starting to think I got it wrong.

Re: Easier if I supported.....

I'm sure like most others, West Ham was bedded into me from a very young age, so I had no real choice! I knew who West Ham were before I had an idea what football was. Conversation of past players Bonds & Brooking, the crest plastered over the house. I can remember going to games at a very young age...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Not sure it can be considered a successful window. All we have really done is replace Arnoutovic, Nasri & Adrian. Yes Haller & Fornals will likely be upgrades, but they are like for like. Had Arnoutovic not kicked off again, we probably wouldn't have even signed a striker. We haven't improved our pr...

Tal Ben Haim deserves a shout out. If he had never played for us, it would mean that Avram never would have been our manager!

Re: Summer Window 2019: Rollcall

I imagine if you include wages saved, the net spend will be very close to breaking even. Another year of no investment from the owners.

But of course we will still hear from Jim White "They spent 70 million once again, they are in the best league in the World. What more do the West Ham fans want?"

Re: On Carlos Sanchez...

Guy I sat next to last season booed Sanchez for the entire season whenever he was playing or warming up. Booed him even before he kicked a ball.

"Booo Sanchez, booo, you're s***"

Well, you get the idea. He was a grown man as well. Very odd behavior.

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Not sure why we'd be after Wanyama. He's very much turned into Kouyate. Was a very good player, now completely finished. Spurs are trying to flog him for a reason.

Re: Hugill v Savio

Hughill is at least a Championship / League 1 player, yes the price was ridiculously but he's still a footballer

Savio wasn't even a footballer. Either the most dodgy deal or we got conned. Our version of Ali Dia.

Re: Summer Window 2019: Rollcall

That spend graph is interesting.

Take into account the reported budget was about £25 million. If we sell Obiang for around the 8 million mark, that'll most likely mean no more transfers until next summer, bar a loan or a free.

Re: Hugill v Savio

Need to consider who they we're brought in to replace as well. Hughill replaced Ayew, who other than being a decent finisher in the 6 yard box, was a pretty average player. Ayew wen't on to get relegated with Swansea. Savio replaced Craig Bellamy, who was our best attacking player & went on to play ...

Re: Nine at 9

Fitting that it's Tarrico - He was probably our best striker at the time (Yes, I know he was a defender)

Might see him return this season!
