So do I, but not much chance of me being on H11s list either.
Wait until we hit 500 pages and still not signed anyone and you might stand a chance of being on his list :crylol:

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Unless I am getting him confused with someone else, Traore's game good and bad seems little different to when he was at Boro and one of the players we were supposedly interested in at that time. I think we've got enough brilliant on their day but their day isn't every day type attacking players.

Re: ⚽ Crystal Palace vs West Ham Utd: match thread

Back in my hotel room on the right side of the river after the match. For the match in real time: Ayew played a blinder, causing problems everywhere for us. Tomas Soucek had the worst game I've seen him play for West Ham - Palace were carving through parts of the pitch that he normally has under to...

Re: The Case for the Defence

After the first goal against Watford went in Dawson was getting pellets. Comments that he should be shot etc etc. Some forget that Dawson was purchased as cover for peanuts. When a transaction like this occurs there has to an acceptance on the players behalf that he is a back up and may not play to...

Re: The Case for the Defence

I'm 30 minutes into the 1st half. Had to watch a few hrs after it ended. For their goal, I cannot figure out what Diop was doing. He's just stood still. He should be shifting centrally as Dawson was challenging Dennis. When it was clear Dawson was gong to get beaten, he still stood there like a sta...

Re: Tiny Alan Pardew

I liked Pocket Pardew, they should do a Mini Moyes.

I've got an ancient desktop in a spare room which I haven't used for yonks but when I switched it on a couple of years ago to save some images that were on the hard drive, there PP was.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Rice is the only midfielder to have given the defence real protection and he is not playing. Defending when the opposition are attacking does not start at the back four. If there is any player that needs to "redeem himself" in this game it's Soucek who has been poor all season. No doubt he...

Re: Gold & Sullivan

The buck always stops at the top as e17 has rightly reminded us. One of the big problems at this club is that no one can know for sure who really has the last say in player recruitment and no current employee is going to say anything against their boss. We did fine in Pellegrini's first season and w...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd vs Southampton: match thread

It’s tenuous at best when you have to make the case for supporting a player by stating what about player x,y,z. Guys unfortunately an absolute liability. It's not tenuous at all, it's relevant and will remain relevant whilst we have posters solely focussing on their chosen hate figure(s) and stayin...

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd vs Southampton: match thread

I don't see anything wrong with Crouchend Hammer's post. With some posters it's player X and player Y every bloody week yet tumbleweed when it comes to the equally poor performances of other players. You will see they trot out mitigation for the errors of those other players but naturally do no such...

Re: Tickets for Southampton

STH. Sent back covid forms the day they arrived, still no ticket. Just good enough.

I have no faith that the club's system is robust enough to hold medical data on 50,000+ people securely either.
