What is the point of Benny and Pablo here?

Re: Vienna Away - Cancelled

Not read a thing about the completely inadequate transport arrangements that led to hundreds of our fans milling around a car park in the middle of nowhere, the decision to restrict us to a cage with an empty stand along one side or police and stewards that wouldn't piss on you if you were alight. ...

Re: Takeover talk

What do these directorships even mean, practically, who decides if there happens to be one more director, and to what extent do they reflect control/leverage?

Re: Vienna Away - Cancelled

1. One does not need to be drunk or drugged to throw a flare. 2. Collective punishments are not an acceptable form of regulation and policing in most, if not all, aspects of Western society anymore. Why UEFA, and FAs, insists that this is an entirely acceptable and effective way forward for amending...

Also, in case anyone was wondering, the melody for "Tottenham get battered"/"West are massive everywhere we go" is Rotterdam by Beautiful South

Re: Takeover talk

You do know you're quoting Claret and Spew here don't you? This Hammers News website is the worst mix of clickbait and vacuous reporting around our club. It annoys me even more than C&H. I welcome coal and gas money in the club, it is very on-brand. And it's not enough to make us a financial po...

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

She's probably got a clause in her contract that states she gets to keep her job whenever Gold and Sullivan sell up. Failing that she'd probably claim Unfair Dismissal somewhere in the future and will no doubt win. Surely she is not tenured. You are not suggesting this is a job for life independent...

Re: Gold & Sullivan

Now this kind of stuff I can live with. For all my loathing of GSB rule, an owner who runs his own twitter, and repeatedly confuses players like that (I imagine he has them all sorted in folder acc to physical characteristics) is exactly what we need in these months of rampant professionalization on...

The most interesting aspect of this is he is co-owner of Sparta Prague. They probably have the best academy in Eastern Europe.
I'd name Dinamo Zagreb there, but, yes, Sparta does good work.

How does that work with RB Leipzig and RB Salzburg?
RBL is technically member-owned, even though it only has a handful of "members" who are all RB people - and RB functions as merely a sponsor, on paper.

Re: Europa League 2021/22

It's the best of the European tournaments, and the one that fits us the most. It may not be popular, but I don't need the CL. PSG-Man City or Bayern-Barcelona for the hundreth time bores me to death. A lot of traditional clubs with big names and passionate followings are in the Europa League, and th...

Re: Fantasy Football

The Havertz pick is a classic case of a pretty sane pick, not a mistake per se, that turned out badly. For now. I'm keeping him.

Well if they invited the Greeks to join them it only seems right we invite Millwall or leeds to join us for the away leg.
Some Czech firm would be appropriate. And close by.
