Re: Manchester City v West Ham Utd - match thread

We actually started passing the ball better with 10 men rather than lumping it.

3-0 now.

I had a bet on an away win, silly me.

Re: Summer transfer talk/rumours

People really have to take with a pinch of salt what they hear and read in the media.

I'd say more than half it is stated as fact when either it's guess work or even worse made up.



Just watch Sky Sports on Sunday morning and you can see for yourself how little most journalists really know.

Re: Summer transfer talk/rumours

It seems obvious that we haven't a lot of money to spend in the tranfer market as shown by giving a trial to Ben Thatcher[thankfully off to Ipswich]. It's also general knowledge that we are trying to get the wage bill down. If we are as skint and desperate to sell our top player's as some of the ITK...

Re: If Thatcher plays?

Sorry, I haven't read the whole thread but didn't Thatcher when he was playing for Wimbledon elbow Paul Kitson and get himself sent off. I think the game was about 10 year's ago at Selhurst Park. I went yesterday and didn't boo but I don't blame those that did, though I don't normally agree with boo...

Re: Villareal Tickets

My me and my nephew have season ticket's I booked over the phone and presume the Villarreal game has been added on to our access card's. When I made the booking some week's ago I did it on option 1 and was put through to 'see tickets' and at the time they didn't seem to have a clue, when I rang it w...

Re: Summer transfer talk/rumours

I just don't rate Alan Smith and what sort of wages would he want. Our priority has to be a left back and a striker and Smith doesn't hack as a striker for me and is an average midfielder. As for the Ljundberg story it doesn't make sense to me to pay him off that sort of money, where is the return. ...

Re: Villareal Tickets

Signed up my son for membership a couple of week's ago and next day I ordered a seat for him for the Villarreal game. I expected the game to be on his access card when it arrives in in his membership pack, I'd already ordered seat's for my nephew and me and presumed they would be added on to our sea...

Re: Summer transfer talk/rumours

If Mascherano wasn't given game's because West Ham saw problems ahead over the the Tevez situation, why did we continue to play Tevez? Is it more likely that Pardew/Curbishley saw that Mascherano like a lot of foreign player's in the Premiership was taking time to settle in[like Tevez]? Playing a st...

Re: Summer transfer talk/rumours

In defence of Curbishleys signings people need to take a more realistic view. In January 2007 we were in the bottom 3 and fighting a relegation battle. In the summer of 2007 we had just escaped relegation on the last day and still had threats of tribunals and court cases hanging over us. Some sort o...

Re: Joorbachian, Sheffield Utd, McCabe and arbitration

I know most people are bored with this but I just want this over and done with. I believe the F.A. tribunal was meant to be this month but I haven't heard of a specific date set. As for the High Court case involving Joorabchin I have no idea if or when that is likely to happen. Until they are dealt ...

Re: Man Utd v West Ham Utd: match thread

Do people remember a few seasons ago us be 1-0 up at Chelsea and then be thrashed by 10 men , now that was embarrassing. Today we were beaten by one of the best teams in Europe. The Curbeshley haters are now out in full force. Look at the individual defensive mistakes made and then think what our be...

Didn't Blackburn make a presentation to Ludo the following season for his performance against Man U?
