Why? surely not just because they support us.
Of course not (although I do feel an understanding of what being a West Ham fan helps).
They are two young outstanding coaches that have done wonders at a club with very limited resources.
Fresh new ideas is what this club needs - a bit like when we got an untried young coach, gambled and made him our manager. (Ron Greenwood).
I am whistling in the dark though, our blokes have neither the bottle, the brains, or the ambition to make such a decision. They want someone safe and steady, tried and tested. Someone to just do enough to keep us in the division.

All teams around us drop points again. If we'd have had just an ounce of effort over the last month or two we'd have 7th wrapped up. Been nothing short of a disgrace recently. Tactics and application have been abysmal.

i don't think that's a great motivation for players. not for ours anyway, quite clearly.

Our owners are many things, but even they would not be that daft and foolish to appoint the Cowley brothers.

Those two have done well at Lincoln and congrats to them, but they will never manage above league 1.

Appointing them at West Ham would insure certain relegation. Thankfully it will never happen.

I'd get them in at West Ham in a heartbeat.
I have been keeping an eye on them since they were in the non league with Concord
Those lads are going places :thup:

Another off side Man City goal to seal victory at palace. Farcical.

Although another tight one, Gabriel Jesus, a foot offside, calmly slots in no. 3 for Man City, no flag, goal stands

Was just gonna post the same. Will barely get a mention, would NEVER happen at the other end, flag would’ve gone up so quick the Lino would’ve given himself whiplash :thdn:

The BBC take on the 3rd Man City goal, ‘replays show Jesus was offside but it won’t matter now’ :lol: What’s the f*cking point, teams should just start walking off, calling out the cheating!

Hopefully Chelsea get something off of Liverpool now. Althouh Sarri playing no striker again. How have Liverpool had barely any injuries this season? I'd love to know how teams go through a whole season with minimal injuries, it fascinates me as a West Ham fan :lol:

Don't like the bias, but if it stops the b@st@rd red Scousers winning the league, I will let it go! Hate them with a vengeance.
