The poison dwarf is very wealthy, but David Sullivan and West Ham United are not the same thing

The Club is not skint either. It just has its revenue syphoned off in interest and/or squandered on "chairman's punts" and excessive wages.

If he plays tomorrow, I hope he does very well.

Me too. I want us to win. However I want the owners to still get an earful.

He was a 7/10 on everything, except high balls where he swung between a 7 and a 3...

As a backup he's fine, absolutely fine. Nothing more, nothing less.

I think like Moyes the concern/irritation/derision is from the utter lack of planning, utter lack of competence and utter lack of ambition from the club, yet again. He wasn't good enough to compete against Joe Hart :lol: :lol: :lol: but now he's the signing we need... Only West Ham and only with these hunters from Berkshire in charge...

Not a fault for the goal, was steady and assured in his handling, distribution etc. Competent performance.

Also good to hear, shows our defence are doing a better job under Moyes.

I genuinely think he is a better player now, but the proof will be in the pudding. Would be nice if he has improved to the degree that there is a fight for the starting spot.

Thought he did it ok, but can’t reach the half way line with his kicks.

Pull the other one.

I rate Randolph, decent keeper and the undisputed Ireland number 1 but Pickford was the busier of the two and made a world class save from Fornals.

Pickford has more clown moments, Randolph didn't have much to do anyway

We did some outstanding goalkeeping business in the summer.
