Re: Brighton vs West Ham Official Match Thread

When did it get so bad taking a drawer away to brighton, who have done us plenty in past 4/5 yrs, without full strenghth squad. Give new players chance to bed in , get haller and pam (&noble back) and ready for next 2 games against teams similar. As someone said lets make a judgement in 5-10 games a...

Re: What if Rice picks up an injury?

dont follow the academy much, but im guessing there is no one (cullen?) making a name for themself there. If Declan was the only one of kind its a worry and poor scouting. if we get lumbered with sanchez would suggest we may struggle, would defo bring noble back against brighton as we need a bit of ...

Re: Are Man City ruining our game?

Yes. A cap in transfers or salaries would presumably mean city, Liverpool, Man Utd et al would get first refusal of best players and we’d have to settle seconds, so nothing really changes! They have so much spending advantage , buy a 40m player and stick him on the bench. Also have a dislike for th...

Re: The Transfer rumours have started here post !

interesting read in the mainly stale, net 36m spend, seem to recall at start of window predictions where a 25m budget. A few (Villa) have proper gone balls or bust with spending, fair play i reckon. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7336995/Transfer-deadline-day-numbers-ultimate-gui...

Re: Pre-season: Asia Trophy

A pretty awful game played at 1/2 pace, I suppose it’s all about fitness , cause it ain’t the football, frankly if Chico stays it’s as a super sub only, offers nothing else, creswell and zaba bench material at best.

Re: Pre-season: Asia Trophy

they can bring on sterling, de-brunye, silva...we can bring on snoddy, diangana & chico...not that we needed a reality check but there you go. Dont think we've been completely done over and seems like we've had decent opportunities, still cant see anything other than a drubbing 1st game tho. Get it ...
