Re: Sunday Supplement

That was my thoughts when I first read the Daily Mail article. I watched Sunday Supplement live when the matter was discussed and I don't particularly remember the hands in the till comment but if it was said then that could be the basis of a legitimate complaint from the board. For all the sins co...

Re: West Ham Utd v Liverpool: match thread

Gomez cost 2 million worth 40 and growing. Van Dyk. Cost 80 valued around 130. Arnold the right back> Priceless at his age. So too Robertson. This is their key to success along with the front 3 because the midfield are not world beaters. Thats the best back 4 there in the world. 2 Solid central pla...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

He’s been his best in attack when we had players who created space with their running and he used his intelligence to drift into dangerous positions. Arnie was ideal, he dragged defenders all over and Lanzini dovetailed well. Payet too, because he’d bring defenders to him. Right now we have none of...

Re: Security checks means I'm missing kick off

The security checks are a box ticking exercise only, performed by unqualified "stewards" as a tokenistic gesture. Ask them what they are looking for and you get all sorts of answers. I have never answered the question "what's in your pocket?" when the magic wand detects something and I have never be...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Some excellent, thought provoking posts on here these past couple of pages, which resonate with many of us. Old MiIe End and E17, your posts are spot on.

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

4 seasons into the dream move, the so called promised land and here we are joint 19th in the table and backing all our hopes on David Moyes saving us for the 2nd time. Whilst I don't think the football was always that dire under Moyes first time round - he got Arnautovic & Lanzini performing for in...

All good positive stuff, all a bit of a massive coincidence too... So, since word spread of the protests, superbly organised by Hammers United (a group which is seeking to gain a recognised position as a fan group with the club), and the subsequent success of the protests, we have had each of our ch...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

The state of the current squad is a real issue. None of the expensive Pellegrini recruits are performing to the level that they should. Haller, Anderson, Fornals, Diop, Yarmolenko - have had mediocre seasons at best with odd flit into form. The recruitment and retention of Zabaleta, Roberto, Noble,...

Re: Leicester City v West Ham United: Match Thread

There was just one piece of good news from this match. At least we won't see that useless plodding Snodgrass again this season and we may yet have seen his last in a West Ham shirt. Rejoice in that news. :scarfer: His absence I would say slightly, but not by much, improves our chances of staying up...

Regardless if I am young or not is irrelevant. Having less of a motivation to watch us play poor Championship sides would be considered normal.

Be careful what we wish for, because things could get even worse. I know I would rather watch the Premier league any day of the week and look forward to fixtures home and away against the top sides.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

The Talksport stance re Paul Colborne is a strange one. In the lead up to the Burnley game and the planned march in 2018, the same Talksport afternoon show had one of the guys behind the RWHAG on a couple of times. Now whilst the guy wasn't subject to an FBO at the time, he was awaiting sentencing f...

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

He's not a back-up keeper now, he'll likely be starting the next 4 games. And given Fabianski has gone down twice already doing the same routine movement – i.e. not an injury from a freak occurrance that is unlikely to be repeated – it would be foolish to think it can't happen again before season's...

Re: Welcome (again), Darren Randolph

My only problem with this signing is if he is not fit enough to start on Saturday.

Other than that, Randolph is perfectly fine as a back up keeper, I really do not get the hysteria from some

Re: Declan Rice The Moyes Effect

I feel many have a bit of a blind spot where Rice is concerned. He has had a fair number of poor games this season, along with many others, but seems to escape criticism in most parts. Where I sit he can do no wrong, even when he does, as it's always someone else's fault. Perhaps he has been trying ...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Far, far better option as a back up keeper than what we have currently. Surely that cannot be a bad thing can it ?
