Re: Little things that irritate you

Acknowledged by whom though? It's highly subjective and I certainly don't place a great deal of value on the votes of his cronies or colleagues. I could probably find a fair few replacements among the cab drivers of London alone who could do what he does. Not you clearly. Those who vote or judge the...

Re: Little things that irritate you

[ I think it's the same fallacy as says corporate execs and bankers have to have their pay accelerated so much over the last 10-20 years because there's an international competition for the top ones. Really? There are 20,000 executives who can all just **** off at the drop of a hat and work anywhere...

He is a typical Kiwi warrior, athletic, brave and never gives up. Reminds me of Martin Keown at his best, who I rated as player.

Re: West Ham vs Aston Villa - Match Thread

I want to smash this lot. I think Villa are a terrible team. Take Benteke out of it, and they are as poor a side as you'll see. 3-1 win. With Nolan back to scoring ways, along with Downing who is sure to get some stick. :crest: Vila were a terrible team, they are most certainly not that bad now. Th...

Re: Times really are a changing! (Winston Reid)

I don't think he is. It's partly to do with the madness of the current market but I think he's closer to £20 million than £6 million. I hope we keep him but he would improve Arsenal's defence and also the Mancs (which is where I honestly think he may end up). He is that good.[/quote] The buying club...

Re: Swansea v WEST HAM UNITED - Match Thread

Soldado looked the nuts on TV at the weekend. Brilliant goal and some good all round play. That said Swansea are made for Sam tactics. They pass the ball slow, push up around the play and have limited ability players up top. The away last season was a suicide mission, they did little to gain a 2-0 l...

Two things, Sat at 5.30?? That's just ****, we should be in the pub talking about the game not providing audience background for a TV show. Also, great as Saturdays result was, I think Sam will at least change the formation, and in my opinion the line up. We will play with a centre forward, Petric i...

Re: Winston Reid

Reid is a typical Kiwi sportsman, and he is becoming a top centre half. We are lucky to have three very good players for central defence. Tomkins for England for me at his current performance he cant do any worse than those two lumps.

Just read Sam pre match for the Hull, Downing is fit and with the squad, Joe Cole is a week away, Carroll still in Belgium. Morrison will start by the sound of it.

Re: WEST HAM UNITED v Cardiff City - Capital One Cup 3rd Round

Cheers for the replies guys :thup: Seems a bit of mixed feelings about Collison & Vaz Te, but a fair amount of positives to draw. They were the 2 players (along with Tomkins, but I've no doubts about Tonks...) I was most interested to hear how they'd performed, as I do feel both still have the ...
