Re: Lanzini

Lanzini and Yarmolenko are currently squad players with Bowen, Fornals, Lingard and Benrahma competing for 3 spots in the starting XI currently (when Antonio is fit). If we go for wingbacks there are just 2 spots. If we don't qualify for Europe and sign Lingard I can see Both Lanzini and Yarmolenko...

Re: Rice on the cheap

Whether or not Statler & Waldorf decide to cash in on Rice will define their tenure. Either by luck or judgement, and I'm pretty sure I know the answer, the balls have fallen into place. I still maintain that CL football is beyond us but not impossible. But Declan appears to be loving life at a...

Decent TV Watch

A year or so back Netflix produced a program about Sunderland the season after they got relegated from the PL. That was a decent little series and they did a second one to follow on after the takeover that followed that relegation. Had a bit of a binge watch today and I thought it was a good watch. ...

Re: Bin Dippers

I suppose it's symptomatic of the English disease. Far easier to blame someone else than look in the mirror. Just the English do that? Don't know. But we're certainly very good at it. Almost a national sport. I'm old enough unfortunately to remember when Bobby Robson was the England manager. I don'...

Re: How West Ham became great again

I agree with you on the CL but to be honest, I would love to watch West Ham play away to a Champions League giant. But fair enough, you will likely go through the next 10 years in pain because even the FA cup and League cups are almost always won by the super clubs in England. The last time a team ...

Re: Bin Dippers

The only time I remember us doing it is when Lanzini went down far too easily to win a pen against Stoke away when we won 3-0 there and Arnie nearly started a riot. Other than that, you are right, we are shit at it. Hope we don't go down that road...we're doing ok without all that bollocks.... Hope...

Re: T V Football Coverage.

One thing is really starting to piss me off whenever I watch a t v game. Inevitably at some point during the proceedings the commentator comes out with something along the lines of Apologies if you heard any inappropriate language . It's happening pretty much every match. I've actually never heard ...

Re: What will be our Final position and other questions?

My grandad used to tell me about these "nights out" to which you refer. Apparently back in a more civilised time, when people weren't walking around dressed as if they expected a sarin attack at any moment, they were quite the thing in polite society. ;) Unfortunately if we are to believe...

Re: What will be our Final position and other questions?

Still targetting 6/7th,be well happy with that...But a CL spot is doable...even losing both games to the Mancs...that wont make any difference to it... We have Cheats,Everton,Leicester all at home left,they're key,rest of our games are all winnable....Even the Arse.... :lol: Would love it and happy...
