Re: The weeks other games - 9th - 13th

Most important outcomes for me for this week's midweekers:

Man City beat Wolves
Spurs fail to beat Arsenal

I think I would prefer Richarlison to both.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I remember watching West Ham vs Leicester on a stream 2 years with foreign commentary. The commentary (for me) was entirely incomprehensible jibba jabba, apart from ever few seconds, when the commentator would say "'Arvee Barnesh". Therefore, whenever I hear/see the name Harvey Barnes, I c...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Arsenal are certainly trusting Nkietah at the moment, over the likes of Lacazette, and he's been doing excellently, along with the team, who are going on a great run. Definitely surprised me on the times I've seen him. Could yet sign a new contract at Arsenal if they get Champs League, although no d...

Re: European qualification for 22/23 - what are the chances?

If both City and Liverpool win midweek then next Sundays game will not only be Nobles send off but will also be the game that City can clinch the title. Somethings got to give. If both sides win midweek, then don't think Man City can clinch the title against us next Sunday. It'll only give them a 3...

Re: The kids are all right

I think Moyes is a very good man-manager of young players. I'm confident that he thinks they're good enough, he'd give them opportunities.

Re: The kids are all right

We didn't need to loan Rice out did we ? He was in the first team at 18, and Johnson made his first team breakthrough and was around the squad pretty much at the same age. But Alese, to use an example is 21 and apart from the Zagreb game hasn't featured in what I'd call a "proper" game of...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

BBC has run a story about Palace signing Wan-Bisaka and Doucoure, which strikes me as curious. BBC only tend to run transfer stories if they're quite far down the line or something concrete has happened. They don't do rumour stories of their own other than round-up rumours from other sites. So, how ...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Surely we've already got enough impending departures from the squad without thinking about selling key squad players on top of that like Lanzini, Soucek, even Benny. We'll end up replacing almost the whole first-team squad. You can only make so many changes in one window.

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

This was their lineup in the first leg, so you can compare. Frankfurt: Trapp - Tuta, Hinteregger, Toure - Knauff, Sow, Rode (c), Kostic - Lindstrom (Hauge 62'), Kamada - Borre (Ache 90'+3) Unused subs: Grahl, Hora, Hrustic, Lammers, Hasebe, Chandler, Da Costa, Lenz, Barkok, Paciencia Out: Durm (inel...

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

This was the Frankfurt lineup tonight. Not sure how weakened it is and who their main men are besides Kostic, who played a half, and Kamada, who made a cameo for last 10 mins. I think Ndicka is their star CB. He played the full game but was suspended for the 1st leg. I think Sow is supposed to be go...

If anybody's interested, Eintracht Frankfurt lost 2-0 tonight at Bayer Leverkusen. They remain mid-table. If people are uninterested (meaning not interested) or disinterested (meaning impartial), they still lost 2-0.
How many first teamers did they rest?

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

Their fans seem pretty confident. Doesn’t look like they rate us as a team or fans at all. Let’s hope that overconfidence spills over Lyon style. I guess to overseas fans of clubs with European aspirations, we must appear to be very easy pickings. A team that barely ventures above midtable in the P...

Tbh funky c, I couldn't see us doing what we did, that night. That night, every single one of ours was 9 or 10 out of ten. First leg against these, hardly any were. Two stupid goals to let in, as well. Repeat those Lyon performances though & we can do it. And then lose the final... With the Lyo...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Just chucking it out there - but I do wonder if the political situation in Russia has anything to do with him (and Kral for that matter) being used so sparingly? Whether the sanctions on payments to Russian businesses (clubs) is not allowed - and it may be that after x amount of appearances we have...

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

Don't fancy our chances at all. I think I've almost resigned myself to the fact of us being knocked out. Hope I'm outrageously surprised. I was looking forward to a big night in the pub watching this, but now I'm worried about watching it with alcohol! We need many things to go our way in this match.

Just send Kral on after 89 mins to scissor kick Arteta in the b*llocks ~ that's all I ask.
Surely he'll have more opportunity to do that from the dugout area.
