Lol, he wishes he was a larger Hernandez. His movement isn't even 10% of Hernandez.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Duffy? A CB isn't a priority at all for me. Diop and Ogbonna are decent, Balbuena I'm not a fan of, but he's about ok. Even Reid was on the bench today and Cresswell can play there when we go to a back 3. Our only fit RB is Zaba and even though his last few performances have been decent, we can't ke...

Re: West Ham United v Everton: Match Thread

Everton without two of their best players were poor as expected. Disappointed that we can't win a game like this. Missing Anderson was big for us. Lanzini did not come close to filling his boots. We were ok, but seriously lacking the quality to turn games like this into wins. We'll be looking over o...

Re: West Ham United v Everton: Match Thread

I’m worried about Anderson not playing. By far our best player since Moyes arrived. If we can’t beat Everton without Richarlison and Sigurdsson then we really will struggle to keep ourselves in this league.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

According to the Daily Star, we were offered Lazaro and Vecino on loan, but aren’t interested. An upgrade on what we have in 2 positions of need so don’t know how true that is. Also says we have no interest in Joe Allen. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/west-ham-offe...

Re: Connections: Celtic

Scotland 1-3 England at Celtic Park in which West Ham player Stewart Downing started along with current West Ham player Jack Wilshere.

I don’t like Celtic either much...I hope Rangers win that league tbf.

Re: A vote of confidence [POLL]

It is a daft question. If success is regular Premier League football on the pitch and top 20 richest clubs off it then yes - they are pretty much delivering this. How many of our fans do you think consider the above statement as success? Top 20 richest clubs? So we can re-sign Randolph and continue...

Re: Are YOU happy at the Olympic/London Stadium?

I hate the travelling to and from Stratford and the getting in and out more so than the stadium (my seat has a decent view and it certainly has more space), but the overall experience doesn't come close. I'm starting to find going to games an effort/chore at that stadium, especially as I have to jug...

Played a huge part in a certain victory against Man Utd back in 2016. :thup:
Poor goalkeeping from Randolph led to Man Utd taking the lead in the game didn’t it?

I hope he’s better than when he was first here, I really do.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

The trouble with back-up keeper role is that is isn't hugely appealing to anyone that is *that* good. Fab is quality, but he’s 35 and been injured twice already. We clearly have concerns here. We should be going after a goalkeeper who is good enough to eventually overtake him. We have signed Randol...

Re: Jack Wilshere

Does anyone have any clarity on when he might be available again? is he out for the season? Does anyone know? He’s fit enough to jump in and out of washing machines, but not quite fit enough to do what he’s paid to do. I’m guessing by releasing that video it means he should be back soon surely...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Disagree that that’s true. Randolph was generally about the level of Adrian’s worst, for the most part, and couldn’t take his chance to replace him. It’s a really bad sign if you make your manager admit his mistake by being notably worse than the man you replace. He isn’t and wasn’t as good as Rand...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Both played 20+ games that season... he was as much first choice in his final season as Adrian was! I’m not disputing the amount of games they played, but the way they were shared out is still how I said. Adrian started as first choice and ended the season as first choice. It’s not great that you c...

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

He is much better than our current reserves He isn't better than the keeper we let go this summer It’s not hard to be better than our current reserves and having to use those in x amount of games this season has added to the fact we are struggling, but once again our first choice goalkeeper is inju...

He did though, didn't he? :?
Adrian dislodged himself for a mistake against Stoke. Randolph was then put in goal only to lose his place for being pretty **** and making mistakes himself. Still, if Fabianski gets injured again we’ll all be confident with Randolph in goal...right?

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

Better than Roberto and Martin, but nowhere near the level to provide adequate competition for our seemingly crocked and quality number one.

No one at that club has an idea how to build a squad.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Brentford are third in the CHampionship. Gunning for promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history. They are not in any financial trouble No way are they selling Watkins now for anything less than stupid money, They always sell their best players for profit and reinvest in players...
