Re: Ideal ins and out's in the summer? (Realistic(ish) only)

Outs - Carlton, Jarvis, Nolan, O'Brien, Demel, Nene, Zarate, Jussi, Carroll and Valencia.

Ins - who knows? I haven't really thought this through! :oops:

Re: Manchester City Vs West Ham United match thread

When you see the Kouyate elbow in real time it looks fine but in super slow motion it looks terrible - thank god he got booked so they can't take any further action. Apart from that it was a shocking display, we played far too deep and invited City on to us, the defending was desperate at times, giv...

Re: Mark Noble on Goals on Sunday this morning

I like Mark Noble he's a good player and has never let anyone down, but Southampton knew he was our main man and if they got in his face, didn't allow him time and space then they would remove the attacking threat from West Ham. Mark's lack of pace was cruelly exposed - he was pressurised on the bal...

Re: Mark Noble - West Ham Legend ?

You give him time and space and he's fine, like against Palace - but if you get in his face and pressurise him, like Southampton yesterday, then his lack of pace and movement really shows and he gives the ball away. He's not a bad player, just a bit limited - the plaudits should go to Southampton fo...

Re: POLL: The New Club Crest

A definite 'No' here! I like the existing crest and it's been the crest as long as I can remember, and tradition and history are more important than 'fly-by-night' marketing gibberish. An important thing that I fail to understand is why the word 'London' has been included - there's at least ten othe...

Re: sunday's news gossip 25 may includes the irons

So things didn't work out for Ravel Morrison at QPR either - there are rumours that he managed to fall out with Harry Redknapp as well - it seems that maybe he hasn't matured after all! You can't doubt his ability with the ball at his feet, his attitude and application seem to be the areas where he ...

Re: West Ham v Tottenham Match thread

I predict choruses of 'F**k off Allardyce!' and sporadic booing throughout the match - followed by extensive booing during the end-of-season lap of honour!

Should be fun - can't wait! :thup:

Re: sunday's news 5 january includes west ham

An interesting story in the Sunday Mirror - no names but it's got to be about BFS and his dubious relationship with Mark Curtis - you wonder how the Dave's have allowed this situation:

Re: West Ham vs Sunderland: Match Thread

Is it me and have I missed something? If Tomkins is out injured could not Diarra play or has he been loaned out again, just seems odd we have a ready made replacement and he don't even get a mention. I thought I'd read somewhere that Diarra was injured but I've just looked on the PhysioRoom site an...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

I'm coming down on the side of sticking with BFS - mainly on the grounds of not being able to think of anyone suitable to replace him! BFS is looking old, tired and a bit clueless - maybe losing Nolan will concentrate his mind, force him to play Diame through the middle with Morrison in a more attac...

Re: West Ham vs Sunderland: Match Thread

I always have a Bet on the first goalscorer - it's not been very successful this year but I keep persisting - what a mug! I think this week it's got to be either Fletcher or Altidore... or maybe a sneaky 0-0. Hey-ho... I remember the good old days when Mark Noble used to get a regular penalty - I us...

I've read Hugh Southon and Ex-WestHamemployee and they both keep on about West Ham not being able to get a striker in because of budget constraints etc - but on todays display West Ham are in dire straits. No attack, no shots on goal - Maiga was completely out of his depth and looked hopeless - why ...
