Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Everything being said about Villa was being said this time last year and beyond about them......... They finished 14th. People never learn. "Winning" a transfer window normally equates to not very much. Ask Fulham, they "won" a summer transfer window not so far back.........they ...

Re: Zouma: Catgate

All you needed was a politician to somehow of entered that scrum as Zouma left the car......or just passing by.

You would then have had three of the most vile groups of people on the earth represented in one scrum.

An Animal abuser.
The press/paparazzi
A Politician.

It there's a mob that doesn't do beach mode......it's us.....let alone the manager buying that for one second.

There's absolutely nothing in the history of this group that indicates anyone thinks that way....ever.

Re: ⚽ Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham Utd: match thread

The two (anti Europe) protagonists in this European battle..........Palace & Brighton......

have both drawn the most games of any teams in the Premier League.....and significantly so.

Both have drawn 15 games.

I'll settle for Palace doing the same on Sunday..... :coolas:

It doesn't really matter which one of Spurs, Arsenal or Man U get 4th place if we don't.

And let that fact be the end of it.

Time not thinking "just" about West Ham.........is time badly wasted.

I'm 58 years old.....and straight. Not 17 years old and gay. So I'm not approaching this with much understanding of what he may be going through.

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd vs Manchester City: match thread

We are so stubborn, so awkward , so determined, so obstinate.......so motivated and organised.

But always dangerous......and that puts people in fear of us.

I never go into any game, against anyone, fearing we will get thumped.

And I'm mighty proud of having that feeling.

I've never liked and still can't stand the, "We are massive" song. In my honest opinion, we're not. Yet!!!!! :nonpl:
The song is filled with 99% of irony.

If you don't get that.....there is little hope... :winker:
