Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 54 days remaining

But he does get away with it, year after year. People renew season tickets. It’s ducking embarrassing in all honesty This. The pressure soon subsided last season after a couple of wins. People say that they will judge at the end of the August. We have had eight years to judge these ***** on. Judge ...

Still think he will be with us when the window slams shut though
Martial is far too good for us.

The two methods can't be identical as Levy's has yielded a fair bit of success and Sullivan's has not.

Yes, very impressive. He is far from a sure thing - he scored two league goals in two seasons not that long ago.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 59 days remaining

And how many of those penalties were won as a result of him being in the box at the right time? Not saying I want him here but its a bit churlish to take the penalties away from his tally. No idea. I'm not taking them away, but if you are weighting them the same as other goals then there isn't much...

Of which eight were penalties. Still good but it does put it into perspective.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 61 days remaining

They do need to deliver, I agree. And I agree that people have often touted the 'lets wait and see' or 'give the board a chance' lines. But on this occasion, it really is early days. Arnie has not been officially sold and Lanzini has only just recieved his injury. Lots will happen over the next few...

Half of the obsession with Balotelli seems to be that he is a lunatic with a walnut-sized brain. These are negatives, not positives.

Whyte vs Ortiz is happening in July. Canelo is looking to fight Jacobs and Golovkin has been stripped of his IBF belt.

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th new manager

Even if we lose every game under him I will like him for making that little **** uncomfortable. Sullivan won't employ a manager with some credibility again after this, it'll be another desperado that toes the line.

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th new manager

Actually - the headline is a bit more attention seeking than the article. The bloke appears to have majorly ****ed up in his last job, and it would appear that Sullivan is rightly cautious about his potential appointment, and wants answers as to why it went so wrong at Malaga. I think that's fair e...
