Re: West Ham vs Man City Official Match Thread

Let's hope we can lay down a marker of some sort against this lot, and at least put in a performance. I know it's City and all that bullshit, but if we end up conceding three or four and are mugged off I'll not be happy.

Re: Should we sell Hernandez?

And there was me thinking that Gancka, Hamid, Grompel and Nemrok were the midfield four we needed to allow us to play 2 up top.

Re: Should we sell Hernandez?

2 up front just leaves too much space in midfield.We would get ripped apart I'm afraid. The thing is, if we did play two up top it would cause the sides we're playing to have to alter their setup to deal with the threat as well, wouldn't it? Would the opposition be happy enough to set out their def...

Re: Should we sell Hernandez?

It's a shame that the two up top thing seems as unfashionable as easyfit jeans these days, because I'd love to see an extended run of both Hernandez and Haller up top in a traditional "big man/little man" combo. I bet they'd score a fuckload of goals.

Re: The Mogg is circling...

For me what the country wants is some strong sensible leadership. Labour doesn't need to be centre right. I think someone pre Blair, like John Smith, would clean up right now. The problem we all have is that the lunatic wings of both mainstream parties have a death grip on leadership. Centre right ...

Re: The Mogg is circling...

Corbyn might be a cult figure among the Labour rank and file, but it's abundantly clear that he's close to unelectable for the public at large. He's indecisive in policy, seems oblivious to the bad press this 'antisemitism scandal' is causing, and is utterly selfish about his party's best interests...

Re: The Mogg is circling...

How can Labour continue to let Corbyn destroy any semblance of a viable opposition? Surely to dog the fact Labour lag behind this utter shambles of a government in the polls is a clarion call for change? What would you have Labour do? I assumed Corbyn's politics were a good example of the type of l...

Re: Pre-season: Asia Trophy

Anyone who takes these games even semi-seriously should probably go and have a lie-down for a bit. It's pre-season, it means fuck all. What the fans should take away from games like these is absolutely nothing for the most part. The manager will be trying out different things, looking at different p...

Answer this question?

Do they do Multi culture in places like Pakistan,Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia?
I'm not quite sure we want to be measuring ourselves against nations like that, do we?

Re: The top six

In all honesty, who gives a fuck about the top six? Unless we're in it I certainly don't. I'm more concerned with us, and while I may take a passing interest in the title race, it really isn't something I'm concerned with. I'm also not on board with this idea that the top six should bugger off elsew...
