Re: Putting This Season Into Perspective,(League)

European qualification might become a problem because of the stupid practice of awarding a Europa League place to the winners of the two domestic cups. So, for example, if Spurs win the Mickey Mouse and, say, Everton win the F A Cup that's two places taken. This season particularly those 2 competit...

Re: Man City vs West Ham Official Match Thread

I assume you mean if Spurs or Arsenal win the Europa. Chelsea aren't in it. Tuchel might be good, but he ain't that good. ;) And far be it from me to question your knowledge but are you sure about 5th place if City win it ? I thought the only way 5 teams from one country could qualify was by the 5t...

Re: How West Ham became great again

He's called a dinosaur on here by many people, many times. but one step at a time eh? He's turned a disjointed side fighting relegation into a side pushing for a top 6 place in less than 12 months, and you want silverware? It's up to the fans in the stadium whether the performances we are seeing wi...

Re: How West Ham became great again

That kind of attitude of only rating managers who have won something before is why we were saddled with Pellegrini. Your opinion. So what is the point then?. What is the end goal of a football team?. In my book to win something. Go and ask Ferguson why he was in the game. Go and ask Pep why he is i...

Re: Man City vs West Ham Official Match Thread

What extra place ? If Citeh , the Victims or Chelsea win the Cl and finish top 4 the 5th place team make CL also . Unless Citeh or Victims win the CL and finish top 4 and Chelsea win Europa , in which case the 5th place team don’t . I assume you mean if Spurs or Arsenal win the Europa. Chelsea aren...

Re: How West Ham became great again

Tell me what Spurs have got to show for all their "success",over the past 5 years? Absolutely nothing! They have been the 3rd/4th(with Chelsea) most consistent team in that time,but teams below them in being have won trophies,who have been less steady.Man U have been nowhere near them,apa...

Re: Man City vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Best team in England by some distance. Best team in Europe ? If they walk off with the Champions League trophy they'll deserve that accolade but at the moment they still have to prove it. Hopefully they will meet Bayern in the final. They are the two stand outs imo. Although I have a feeling in my ...

Re: Putting This Season Into Perspective,(League)

According to C & H earlier today, that sky sports prediction of who will finish, the computer predicted West Ham will finish 5th and only missed out to Chelsea on goal -difference for Champions League while most pundits predicted we finished 7th. I'd be happy with either tbh. 😆 European qualifi...

Re: That 3rd relegation spot

Flicked the game on to see the latest score just as Palace scored their first goal. Quality finish. That Mateta could be a steal for what they paid. Scored a good few goals for Mainz who are having a pretty crap season in the Bundesliga. I didn't watch a minute of it. Thankfully. Mateta's on loan w...

Re: That 3rd relegation spot

Palarse not only had just two shots on target last night but had just two touches in the pillow-biters area. And scored two worldies apparently. Which puts the cat amongst the pigeons for Brighton. I don't dislike them and I think Graham Potter is a good up and coming manager but the phrase 'couldn...
