Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

I do wonder if the recent upturn in media scrutiny about the ownership, particularly that of the S*n is causing Karren a bit of grief given her conflict of interests there?

Be a terrible shame if it was.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

Reckon Dave's press conference this week will just be Moose and Sully in some sort of disguise as the rest of the World's media are banned from the London Stadium

Re: Sunday Supplement

With every passing day West Ham Football Club is turning more into a scene from Apocalypse Now. Dave and his disciples have gone mad and gone rogue challenging anyone and everyone who disagrees with bans and legal action (rather than bloodshed). Who ever would have thought that the press and Sky wou...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Just the 3 defensive midfielders for Attacking Dave today then. This is one of the things regardless of results that makes him hard to like. Home game, must win and we are going to very much rely on 3 players going forward.

Re: West Ham Utd v Brighton and Hove Albion match thread

Very reminiscent of Moyes last spell with us and a very defensive looking set up with basically an 8/3 split. Doubt today will be at all pretty but hopefully we can find a way to win it

Surely last season would be on this list as well? Finishing 10th when the season prior to that was bottom half?

Re: Protests against the board being planned

I know the whole idea of the protest this week is a very visual representation of the feeling towards the board but is there any way in which fans that aren't able to attend (I for example am stuck in Liverpool this weekend) to be represented? I wondered if there was a petition or a somewhere that m...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

I saw a graph on Twitter of outstanding transfer fees owed to each Premier League club. Maybe this is the new policy to only buy from clubs who owe us money to save Sully a few (more) quid? In that case we should consider where outstanding fees still are. Outlandish, yes. Beyond Sullivan? God I hope...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

An average goalkeeper who nobody missed when he left last time returning after 3 weeks of failing medicals still being signed whilst out injured for a nominal fee, most of which is owed to us from the initial transfer anyway is the most West Ham signing ever. Hellllllooooo Dave! Also best of luck Da...

Re: David Sullivan - Has he taken us as far as he can ?

With all due respect, Sullivan only has one approach. Its sort-termism. Zola couldn't stay, he wasn't good enough. Bring in a "known" face, on a free. Enter Grant.

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Howe may have spent a bit but their wage bill is considerably less than ours and their highest paid player is on half what ours is. For Moyes, it will be interesting to see who we get in over the next few weeks and our results til the end of this month. It may be short termist but I feel January cou...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

I feel slightly responsible for a lot of the Cullen stuff. My point wasn't how Cullen should be starting, more statistically he has outperformed Joe Allen in almost every stat this season playing in 2 very similar situations. At least Cullen would have a better age profile for a new signing FWIW I d...

Re: Declan Rice The Moyes Effect

I thought he was great vs Bournemouth but agree he has been our only shining light in some dark places this season. The bump from the rest of the team lifted Declan as well. Against Gillingham I thought he had it tough 1st half but Moyes said post match he asked them to get 10 yards higher up and it...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

I remember a few people on here suggesting Moise Kean during the summer... he's not turned out to well has he?

Re: Pablo Fornals

Not many Spanish players hit the ground running in the Premier League. Not saying he will be as good by any stretch but I remember David Silva taking 6 months to settle and get used to the physicality.

I think Fornals could be better than Lanzini ever has been for us

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Am sure it's been mentioned before, but if trying to sign Allen, then why not give Cullen a shot, or is that final proof that the powers aren't convinced Cullen is good enough? I presume Coventry isn't ready yet. As previously stated Cullen outranks Joe Allen in almost every stat both offensively a...

Joe Allen in for £7m?

Tidy little player although recalling Josh Cullen might be the more forward thinking option.
Interesting option. According to Whoscored Cullen beats Allen in pretty much every stat in the Championship this season. That is the level Allen is currently playing at.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Joe Allen would improve the first 11. I think he would end up a regular. He was good enough to be in the UEFA Team of the Tournament at Euro 2016 when Wales reached the semis. If anything, he has been too loyal to Stoke. He could have got a move away when they were relegated, but chose to stay and ...
