Re: New Midfielder.

Noble had a great game on Saturday. They all did. But like my 18 year-old boiler, as I found out today, father Time catches up. We shouldn't buy now for the sake of it but wait until the Summer. Then get someone of real quality in. ??? Who has "Father Time" caught up with ? The 33yr old David Silva...

Re: Manuel Pellegrini

Very true but I think Evra was 37 whereas Nasri has a few more hungry years left. To be honest it was more the attitude I was worried about. I think he'd been farmed out to Turkey before his ban and that's rarely an indication that a player is in tip top form. You're right about him looking hungry ...

Re: Payet

You should judge a player over a period of time . Even the best players miskick sometimes and the more a player gets involved the more likely he might make a mistake.But if he is talented it will more than compensate in the long run,

I tnink the reality is the guy( Nasri) has played for Arsenal and Man City , so he doesn't need to pass an interview !!
Yeah, but Evra was quality at United, so there's never any guarantees.

Re: China come in for Arnie!!

I actually think Anderson is a more important player, but do I want Arnie to leave ? Of course not. Who is the replacement ?

Re: Manuel Pellegrini

I was dubious to say the least about Nasri. We've had our fingers burnt too many times before with this kind of signing. But Pellegrini looks to have worked his magic again. The old boy is an absolute different class to what we're used to at West Ham. It's very easy to see why he commands the respe...

Not one person has answered the OP.
I'll answer it, until the slow lame duck liability is replaced in midfield he'll always be a sitting duck. Just think back to the first game of the season when he was disgracefully taken off at half time because of the inept performance of another player.

Re: West Ham without Marko Arnautovic

Fuck it lets replace all strikers. Arnie wants out, Carroll is not avaliable often enough, Chica is on too much to warrant his limited avaliability/inconsistance and Perez dont seem suited for the PL at all. Get 3 new in the summer, 2 main + 1 for the future as well as Antonio when not deployed som...
