Re: Summer Holidays

I prefer it now to when I was younger. With work being such a treadmill I love the simplicity of being somewhere warm, with the pool or beach and maybe the odd day out to a water park for the kids or whatever making for limited options, which mean most days are relatively simple and relaxing. I thi...

Re: Summer Holidays

As I’ve got older I’ve started to enjoy going abroad a lot less. I feel the build up is always better than the actual holiday. Not sure If I’m becoming an old miserable b*stard in my 20’s but I always feel a bit meh about the holiday when I get home. I genuinely think I’d prefer going to Cornwall or...

Re: Newcastle [non WHU]

Is there even any proof they’re going to spend like everyone’s predicting?

I can easily imagine they end up spending like an Everton type club. People seem to think Newcastle are going to be in for world class players but I’m not sure that’ll be the reality.

Re: ⚽ Everton vs West Ham Utd: match thread

This may sound drastic but I think this is a borderline must not lose game.

I feel a win or a loss will define our premier league season either way.

Nowt more tacky than the nouveau riche.
Waddle also clearly doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about. Pep has only been with them in the last 5 years. Their first manger under the new regime was ****ing Hughes.

Re: Newcastle [non WHU]

Newcastle fans singing ‘we’ve got our club back’ :crossed: . By all means if you feel like it get excited about the prospect of success. But do not pretend this is anyway you getting your club back. Also seen fans thinking they’re genuinely going to be in for the likes of Haaland in the summer. That...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

The first half he was really really bad.

I said at HT it’ll be interesting to see how these new boys react as it was the first time the fans had sort of got on their back since being here.

Tbf out second half performance was really good so that’s a good sign. Coufal also improved.

Re: David Moyes' Claret and Blue Army!

The difference now is that our losses could easily be wins or draws on a different day. We’re a really good side now. I think Moyes will win us a cup this year or next, I have a feeling!

Re: ⚽ West Ham Utd v Brentford: match thread

Pessimistic for some reason. Think this could be a 1-1 draw which would be really disappointing as I think we’re a really good team and could mount a good league, cup and Europe run.

Re: Andriy Yarmolenko

He’s good in games where we expect to have the ball. That’s why he’s been kept and I think he should be too. His ball was sublime last night.

He should be nowhere near the team when we’re playing teams where we expect to not have the ball though.

Re: Bubbles

Bringing this up again because I've been thinking about it. Fair enough we don't sing Bubbles twice because of the knee, I get the message behind it, etc., but surely there's a way to have two renditions of Bubbles and also take the knee? There must be a way to work it between the club, referees, P...

Re: Items being thrown

You just know the response to this will be West Ham creating a bigger divide between the away fans. Making a worse atmosphere. All that was needed was proper policing and the trouble would never have occurred. The bald bloke, if English, would never have lasted that match.

Re: You (probably) get the lyrics wrong to ‘Bubbles

I think most people know the lyrics but most sing ‘they reach the sky’. I’m the same, I sing ‘they’ even though I know it’s ‘nearly’.

I think it’s done because it helps the song be sung louder, quicker and with a bit more punch to it.

Re: Items being thrown

Bit of a bipolar element going on here with posters calling out fans last night as idiots and wannabes but also looking back at the 80’s hooligan fondly.

If there was no CCTV or criminal charges for football violence like there was in the 80’s it would be exactly the same.

Too much talk about possibly winning this competition on tv last night and on here occasionally. We’ve had a brilliant start but that performance last night won’t do against teams in the knock out stage. On a side note, it struck me how rare it is to see a professional athlete trip over his own fee...
