Re: Raheem Sterling

To be fair, he's probably always been decent human being. Never really got the vitriol about him, always just put it down the a predominately Liverpool leaning media.

Intelligent young man, who's had his fair share of crap in life, but seems to only come back stronger each time.

How many managers keep picking him? Pardew, Curbs, Zola, Grant, Big Sam, Bilic, Moyes, Pel Boy... he must do something right.

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I think the "smaller grounds generate better atmosphere" thing is a myth. You watch a Bournemouth (or whoever) game on Sky. For long periods of time it's completely silent, you can here individual voices. I'd argue that nowadays very few grounds have a good atmosphere, bar teams that are winning we...

Re: ⚽ Fulham v West Ham United: Match Thread

Play like that and win every week, I don't care. There's something really great about getting a goal against the run of play.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United vs Watford FC: match thread

In terms of success, so discounting games where we've needed a win to avoid relegation, is this the most important game at our new home? Win by a few goals and we could go 6 with a positive goal difference, a real shift in what has become the status quo over in Stratford. There's so much crap still ...

Re: Andy Carroll

:fsake: sure, who cares if his wages could be used on a left back (or whatever). You think if he wasn't earning it, it would be spent on a left back? Come on. *edit* I should add, do you think the reason it's not being spent on a left back, with Carroll on the books, is because we don't have that k...

Can't be suspended if you're not available 8-)

Joking of course, I don't really get the hysteria around him now. We don't rely on him. It's not your money.

He hasn't made a mug out of me or anyone I know. I haven't paid him a penny, just been able to enjoy the times that he's played well.

Re: Marko Arnautovic Signs

To try and put a positive spin on it, at least we have players again that bigger teams (might) want to buy! Bar Payet, in the last few years we haven't been able to give our players away.

Clutching I know.

Completely invisible, and it's got nothing to do with playing to his strengths. Even if a team isn't set up around you that doesn't mean you can't at least run.

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I haven't been to many games in the last year, but do they not pre pour pints, in anticipation, if not, then why not? it's not like they won't sell? It seems its a case of doing things differently at different parts of the stadium, the pints are always poured where I am, but where my mate sits over...
