Re: West Ham vs Man City Official Match Thread

On a positive note!! We played them away when we were leaking goals and some of us had a bet on them winning 10-0 i am genuinely amused. We had a game plan that day and Antonio's pace on the counter caused them a few problems. 2-1 at their place when the whole planet thought we would get beat by a ...

Re: Financial Fair Play. Good Or Bad ?

Surely a good reason for scrapping the bloody rule then if it doesn't work. :i am genuinely amused: I would imaging that is how RB Leipzig got round it with the "re branding" of the club from it's previous existence as Lokomotive Leopzig. RB weren't Lokomotiv, they're still two different ...

Re: Latest C&H Poll

Which surely kind of proves that the argument often made that league position and player costs are inexorably linked together is a valid one doesn't it ? Does it bollocks. Guess who rank 10th in transfer fees during the same period? Yep, it's us. Since 92-93 we've finished 10th or better 9 times. S...

Re: Latest C&H Poll

He's not going to be here for 7 or 8 years, he's not going to build a stable solid team, we're not going to finish top 8 for half a dozen seasons on the spin. Not because Moyes is incapable of that, but because he doesn't have the tools here to do it. Surely that isn't his fault ? Had he been here ...

Re: Latest C&H Poll

Everton were pretty stable under Moyes after the initial couple of years where he buiult the team. Their finishes were : 7 17 4 11 6 5 5 8 7 7 6 That is stable without having to spend insane amounts of money......if someone guaranteed me those last 6 season finishes above, I would jump at them As f...

Re: Financial Fair Play. Good Or Bad ?

You are right in what you are saying and that is how wealthy owners will get round it. man U, Real, Barcelona etc all sell massive quantities of Merchandise worldwide, to put it in to perspective West Ham sell about 50,000 shirts a year, at say £50 a pop, generating £2.5 million, Man u on the other...

Re: Financial Fair Play. Good Or Bad ?

Its bollocks. Your football club's income not enough to justify your massive outlay in the transfer market? Just use one of your myriad other companies to give your club a huge sponsorship. Jobbed. You are right in what you are saying and that is how wealthy owners will get round it. Surely a good ...

Re: West Ham Way--Fact Or Fiction ?

Just to keep this pot boiling I will just say one thing. If you don't concede a goal you will get at least one point. If you score 3 goals it guarantees nothing. And I'll add a second thing. I'm quite happy Real Madrid won their game tonight because imo they have a far better chance of winning the ...

Re: West Ham Way--Fact Or Fiction ?

I agree he has done a great job BUT He does not play open attractive football.....he is a pretty defensive minded coach which is what did for him at Liverpool. So a question... are you willing to park your purist bus to get him ? Also imagine a team saved by a loan signing ? yet they are apparently...
