Re: Striker issues

We never set our teams up to play to our strikers strengths. Just like when we used to pump crosses into the box when Hernandez was on the pitch and then play to feet with Andy Carroll.

Re: Rice to be sold.

I think develop and sell is the only way we will get anywhere in the future. The problem IMO is (just like with Ferdinand, Lampard, Carrick & Cole) that we never get enough money when we sell our players as we never sell from a position of strength so we are not able to reinvest properly in the squ...

Re: Rice to be sold.

Should have been the player that we built the team around for the next four/five years before getting top dollar and re-investing the money in the team. That's what a lot of people have been saying about the club's profile for years mate. Back in the 90's we had players of the calibre of Ferdinand,...

Re: Man City vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Wishful thinking but maybe City won't turn up against us as they don't really have anything to play for anymore this season apart from winning the Champions League before there two year ban starts!

Hopefully Pep plays the kids although not certain that we could even beat them on our current form.

Re: Rice to be sold.

Can't really blame him, especially if/when we go down considering he is trying to stay in the England squad ahead of the Euros.

Re: Our strikers...

Had managed to block the memory of a lot of those players out, just shows how crucial it is we get the right striker in this summer.

Such a shame we didn't get the keep hold of Demba Ba for longer.

Re: Maxi Gomez

Looking forward to seeing how Arnie does under the pressure if we do sign Gomez. Will he crumble and throw his toys out of the pram via his brother or will he step his game up and compete for the striking position?

Interesting times to be a West Ham fan!

Re: Diop to man utd

Seems a bit strange they haven't named who the player we would be getting as part of the deal is. I can't really think of anyone in the Man Utd that we could realistically get that we would want. If he is going to go I say we hold out for as much money as possible and then reinvest it all wisely. Ma...

Re: blues clues Chelsea ‘hold talks with three possible buyers’ over potential £2.5bn sale of club

Their owner does seem to have lost interest recently. Don't think he has even been in the country for the last few years although might be wrong? With any luck they sink back down to from where they came before all the Russian oil money.

Re: Girls Footie

Ladies team making it as hard for themselves as the men's team do. Fair play to the fans that have gone, bubbles coming across nice and loud a few times during the 2nd half.
