... who has more goals at a better goals/min than our only remaining striker!
....who wasn’t granted the opportunity to play against the might of Charlton or Hull and was instead rested for matches against good footballers.

I knew that G&S were snide but I can’t believe they’ve sold Rice and nobody knows yet ! :lol:
He still isn’t a senior squad member, as funny as your comment is.

You think I have problems because I’m stating facts?

You called me out personally, saying I was getting a kick out of being right?

I didn’t comment on your post, you commented on mine and now you’re confused because I’ve replied? Very odd.
Don't let Docile Hammer and his gang of bullies get to you :arry:

As a sobering aside to our extravagant, final day blow-out (I know! I know!), I notice that Oxford United have just picked up Elliott Lee on loan from Luton. Reading all the comments from Luton fans on Twitter, they all seem to love Elliott and rate him as a great little player, especially at League One level. Nice to hear an ex-Hammer getting love from his current fanbase but kinda surprised to hear him rated so highly because his scoring record never looked that great at Luton. Good luck to him at Oxford. It seems that a lot of Oxford fans on Twitter were hoping to get Nathan Holland back on loan too because they said he was "great" last season.

(Disclaimer: I wasn't suggesting we should've picked Lee up on loan, of course).

Completely irrelevant to this thread, but where in NZ are you living? My missus is a Kiwi. I've been trying to get all family over in Christchurch to become Irons. My offering of Ginger Pele branded tees has thus far not proved successful.
Hey Stevey,

I live in Wellington at the moment but I love Christchurch and what they've done to the CBD post-earthquake (although it took a bloody long time to do it!). I co-found the Kiwi Hammers facebook group of ~800 West Ham fans in New Zealand, you should get your family to join & get amongst the fun :) that'll turn them into Hammers for sure.

Lingard who hasn't kicked a ball in nearly two years,
He made 40 appearances for Manchester United LAST SEASON!

Why do people make **** up to bash their own football club? What is it with modern West Ham fans? :lol:

Before we lost to Liverpool I was getting battered in this thread.

Boring, miserable, moaning, just enjoy it etc.
I still think that applies. And I even agree with you on most stands. As do the wast majority on here. You're pretty loud kicking in all these open doors. Might do your ticker some good if you can accept that some will always disagree with you on a forum.

Nice to see former hammers doing well.

I always had high hopes for Izzy Ireikpen, then he lossy the plot and ended up nowhere.

That’s why I’m not a football scout :D

Ex had announced a couple of weeks ago that then club had decided to extend his contract. No club announcement though.

There is no way he will be released.
Except if his contract is up as stated, then he can chose a new contract with whomever he wants.

Awesome, I'll PM you for info. I defo need to add my missus and her family to your Facebook page. :lol:

She actually lived in Wellington for a few years and studied there. Her best friend lives there still. I visited there 2 winters ago, first time that side of the world, and beautiful place. Bloody windy though! More importantly, I found a cool heavy metal bar that served booze out of viking horns.

(Sorry everyone for diverting from the tumbleweed of our transfer fun).

I fully agree with the sentiment but to be completely accurate, it is just over 3 months.(Albeit half a season)

Matip out for the season

Supposedly did his ankle ligaments on Sunday. They'll be needing all the CBs they can get.
