Classic.
Funniest thing was Adrian.

How the hell did he get involved in that bundle.....Image

Think Adrian was stamping on Randolph to make sure he gets his place back.

Ogbonna Interviews

Post by HammerAlways » Wed Feb 10, 2016 5:51 pm

Can we please stop shoving a microphone in his face, give him a chance to learn the lingo, the poor guy cant understand a word that is being said to him.

Seems like such a nice bloke as well

Thought he was fantastic last night, goal or not. So composed, nothing fazes him.

I thought he was quality last night one of our best players, glad him and Antonio got the goals as think they deserved them both, surprised Adrian didn't get booked for celebrating coming off the bench was that sort of ref

Ogbonna was asked about how he compared West Ham to Torino. He said both clubs have great history, and the fans are especially good. Ogbonna believes West Ham are a typical London club that has firm roots in the area and is ‘very Cockney'
“These two clubs have a great similarity, they have a great history, and the fans are both great at home and especially away. It is a typical London club, not posh, but it is rooted in east London, and very Cockney. Even so, initially it was hard to understand the accent of Mark Noble and my other teammates, the simplest English is spoken by my coach,” said the West Ham defender. :D

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Cassino
Lived an Italian called Angelo
Who played some good football for Torino

Young and keen
Made centre back in Juventus team
Angelo knew he could someday be
Playing for the West Ham in the premier league.

Snuffing out all the danger
Braver than the Lone Ranger
Angelo
Running like hell for leather
Scoring that mighty header
Angelo


Klopp knew it wasn't wrong
Were back where we belong
We beat the Ref as well
How good was Mark Noble
The perfect end for us
We went delirious, hand-in-hand

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Cassino
Lived an Italian called Angelo
Who now plays for us and we love him so.

Really warming to Ogbonna, or as my friends and I call him, 'Angel Eyes'. Look at those heavenly pearls.

I had real reservations about this bloke early in the season - he looked like an Italian Titus Bramble to me -but now I find myself wondering just how good Juventus' centre backs must be to stop him getting a game.

Honestly what a player he has been, especially recently.

He stood out huge tonight.

The fact that he reminds me of a black Karl Pilkington makes me love him even more.

There is no shame being behind Chiellini, Barzagli and Bonnucci. Juve are the strongest in the world in that position so Ogbonna was learning off the best.

He's ****ing class on the ball ain't he? Great composure and technique for a big centre half. Who'd have thunk him and Ginge would be the pair of choice?

Top top player. Considering Reid's injury problems I'd say he's our most valuable center half

fully agree, whilst reid is our best centre back and also id say him and ogbonna would be our best partnering at the back, how often would we actually get to see it? Reid seems to miss 1/3 of the season in the treatment room meaning we have to turn to our 3rd and 4th choice.. Lucky for us we have an almost equally as good options in Collins and Tomkins. Even young oxford came on last night which is a real show of faith in the player from bilic at such an important time in the game.

Centre backs are certainly an area we are strong in. Over next few years we will have both the Reeces coming into whats a strong back line which can only improve us long term
