Also Alvin Martin and even Ian dowie, wouidnt mess with them too in the tunnel
Is 'nutter' being defined as someone who is eccentric, unhinged, and prone to unusual behaviour, or someone who is simply hard? If it's the former, which is what I think UTJ means, I think Alvin and Dowie are the opposite of nutter.

I think the obvious ones have already been said, such as Di Canio, Repka, Savio, Ravel, and Boogers.

But I'd add Sakho to that list (if not already mentioned).

I saw Gary Charles mentioned. I think I heard he had a drinking problem. I may be wrong.

As an aside, just thinking of non-West Ham nutters from the modern era, and the obvious ones that spring to mind are Maradona, Balotelli, Gazza, Barton and Cantona.

Ravel?

Not sure it’s appropriate to mention him though.

Beaten to it!

Bit left field, Paul Konch, always thought he was a sandwich sort of a picnic at times.

Ian Bishop's other half. Or was it Trevor Morley's ? Never quite sure which way it was. :chin:

In an era when tough tackling was the norm, Eddie Bovington put in a few that were very memorable :D

Gokhan Tore. Didn’t he once pull a gun out on teammates from the Turkish National team over an ex-girlfriend or something?

He was the nuts when partnered with Tricky Trev on the wing. The next season he went completely tonto and we got relegated.

In terms of what a 'nutter' is, I agree it's not about being hard, it's having that thousand-yard stare or simply being out there.

I think an honourable mention to John Pantsil who did a lap of honour on his tod.

Personally, I think Moncur has to be to loopers, looper. I remember once he was warming up and we shouted at him - "how long John?". He looked up and held up 2 fingers. Within 2 minutes of coming on, he had been carded and came running across saying "I ****ing told you".

He also refused to tackle Jonathan Spector in training as he was his best friend and didn't want to injure him. :rofl:
