posession stats

did anyone notice we only had 36% of possession yesterday. To be fair to Moyes he has turned us into to a longer ball team which suits our players , we clear the ball forward to be chased by Haller and Antonio but if they are beaten we are set up to win the ball. Our players are not best suited to s...

I was considering how our club is run compared to other Premier League teams : 1 No other owners speak to the media , imagine the owners of any other club doing this ! 2 Our chief executive Lady Brady is very poor compared to all the others. They are all experienced and competent executives who no d...

Re arranged fixture

on the podcast yesterday , Gonzo and Geo criticised why the city game was being played in the mid winter break. I suspect this is sky sports doing as they wanted to get some mileage out of the money they paid for the fixture,enables them to put it against the champions league.

Re: West Ham demand apology from Sky

Upton Park sold for £40 million .

Development 833 homes @ circa £400k each.

so Revenue £333M

expected cost of land(upton Park ) should be 30% say £100m.

Where did missing £50-60 M go ?

either our board are imcompetant or ?

Gonzo Podcast yesterday

It was a good analysis of Gold and Sullivan but missed a key point. When they sold up their "entertainment business " it was a smart decision by them as sold a relatively simple business which they could manage. Unfortunately a football club is a more sophisticated business where you need to manage ...

Their job build a 5 year plan for the club playing resources. to include 1 Plan for all youth and under 23 products. 2 Plan for u...

Interesting to hear Noble advocating playing the above system. He pointed out that it is far more solid and hard to breakdown and utilises Fornals and Snodgrass as midfielders not wingers. Clearly it is helped by Antoniou causing mayhem. This looks a blueprint to move forward and I hope that the tea...

Gonzo lunchtime views

whilst i am not a supporter of the board who moved us to Stratford to cash in personally , I feel they actually did their best to put it right by appointing Pellegrlini (in theory a top manager ) , backing him in the transfer market and relatively keeping quiet . However, the manager has let them do...
