Re: Possible Takeover Bid ?

If you take a few things as read: 1) That no-one would build a stadium that was significantly smaller than now (i.e. no going back to a 35k seater). 2) That despite the cockney diaspora to some of the home counties, to relocate the club outside of London would be wrong. 3) That due to point 1 and t...

Owners facing rising unrest among supporters and press showing an interest.

Suddenly there’s a takeover in the offing and a former fan favourite returns as a coach.

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United: MATCH POSTPONED (09/02)

I've only just got wind of this..... :oops: Can we have a point each please? Good news IMO. Time for a couple more to get fit? VAR says no 15 points to Man City to make the league interesting and immediate relegation for West Ham for not fulfilling their match obligations and messing up sky program...

You honestly think we currently have a consistent transfer and youth policy?
We have zero youth policy. With potless owners who are actually trying to build the club, accepting that we are the size we are we would be buying similar talent to achieve basically the same result.

I’ve posted this in another thread however I think it justifies its own.. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/07/west-ham-david-moyes-declan-rice The most worrying thing in that is the last line where Moyes is trying to frame the **** results, underinvestment and general shithousery from ...

Re: Happy Birthday Carlos Sanchez

Happy Birthday, Carlos. I may be in the minority, but I'm glad he's here. Much the same as Dailly and Pantsil before him, some players are so bad that they become a source of hilarity rather than horror. Thank you for helping me to find joy in this dark, dark world Mr Sanchez. Carlos "the useless s...

Re: Possible Takeover Bid ?

I very much doubt there is the patience around for the club to be run in the old ways. Lets say, the club was well run by a good set of owners, but not mega rich. Good relationships with fans, a consistent transfer and youth policy and a commitment to deliver a new but intimate feel ground within 1...

Re: Possible Takeover Bid ?

Perhaps. A face lift would probably suffice. The satellite shots of the toilet bowl with Arsenal's gaff inside it shows what needs to be done to make it even a rentakit stadium like theirs. With sufficient money you could just build new stands inside the structure (and put a roof on it that actuall...

Re: Possible Takeover Bid ?

I entirely disagree with this mate. I don't see how any club that starts out in a tiny little stadium from the embers of something bigger, could ever grow into one that could fill 30k+ in any of our lifetimes. How could it? Nobody would be able to go to games bar a few thousand to start with and an...

Re: West Ham Utd Daily News & Gossip

Gold and co-chairman David Sullivan were targeted last season when fed-up fans went on the rampage during a home game with Burnley in March 2018 as they tried to attack the directors’ box. Hyperbolic horseshit. No one attacked the directors box. They just let them know what they thought of then. Yo...

Why would G&S change the name to Red Bull West Ham?
At this point simply to spite us and get a reaction.

They could even then backtrack and say "on reflection having discussed it with the OSB and our lawyers telling us red bull will sue we've decided to go back to West Ham London"

i honestly would rather play Nkagkia than Fredericks
I thought he did pretty well in a 5. I thought Fredricks showed the damage he can do being that option wide against Brighton though and he wasn't at fault for any of their goals. On balance I think if he's fit Fredricks has to start surely?
