Re: West Ham Utd vs West Bromwich Albion: match thread

Regista, I completely agree. As for AC being technically good with his feet, erm no. Last week was like the first time I've seen him score a goal by hanging on the shoulder of a defender and latching onto a through ball. He's not graceful on the pitch, he doesn't take nice directional touches and ta...

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

Nothing like a few wins on the bounce to gloss over how poor we've been this season, not to mention we've lost a world class player.

**** it going to hit the fan if Carroll crocks himself or someone like Antonio. We'll see how optimistic we all are in that circumstance.

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

With Byram adapting better with each game you can add Antonio to your list as well as Ayew - last season when we were playing well our midfield were chipping in with goals , add Cresswell , Byram and Reid to the equation and we have goals in most positions not just the strikers - Carroll is defende...

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

It's an absolute travesty that we've been left so short in the striking dept. Carrol - having a purple patch, not exactly prolific, very injury prone Sakho - not prolific, moody, back problems Calleri - useless Fletcher - too young/inexperienced to be relied upon How is this acceptable? We're not ev...

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

He's had 1 straight red and 1 suspension in over 160 games. I think we'll be fine. Oh yes, statistics, great to manipulate to fit an argument. I don't care how many games he's played at Leeds or wherever. For the record I actually rate the kid and I think there's a player in there. Anyone who knows...

We'll be significantly ****ed you mean.

Covered at right back are we then, what with walking red card?

Where were all their suitors? I said after one game both of them where **** (to cries of hysteria, and they're settling in, give them time), how come a mug like me can see that and yet our scouts can't. If someone drew up a list of all the signings the porn barons made, there would be one common the...

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

Nordtveit and Tore both international with European experience signed from teams near the top of their leagues. Yes our owners aren't perfect, but we should stop using hindsight to knock them. There's enough to be annoyed about. Turkey and Norway and Christian Dailly... Who lets their best players ...

Re: Transfer Window: January 2017

Unless there is a 5* deal to be done in any position, we should do nothing. 8 points above relegation, 11 off the top 6, mid table mediocrity guaranteed. Premiership experience given, where possible, to the likes of Nordveit & Feghouli. Game/bench time to the like of Arhur,Byram,Fletcher, Fernandes...

Re: West Ham Utd vs Hull City: match thread

Love how Carroll Shirks his responsibility to get in the box, turn with the ball, get a shot away, key example where he let it run onto Payet, he couldn't of been sure that ball was going to make it and he should have taken the initiative and trapped it rather than leave it and we lost possession.
