Re: Noble

Is it pure coincidence that with Noble back for the last couple of games we seem to have stepped up a gear? I think we always do better with him in the starting line up even if he is a bit slow. That's why we were total crap and clueless with him in the team for the first two games and he actually ...

Re: West Ham United v Chelsea - Official Match Thread

No it's not effective for me. Why not ? Because I haven't lowered my expectations as much as you obviously have ( lose by 2,3 or 4 at home FFS). "Not with the players we have" ? You've proved the point I have been stressing, namely get rid of the inadequate rubbish and stop making feeble,...

Re: West Ham United v Chelsea - Official Match Thread

For me that's the problem. Too many managers trying to formulate a style or system to accommodate players who aren't good enough to perform in the PL. If you ever watched "the debate" on Sky when Pearce and Bellamy were on you would have heard Pearce spell out quite clearly that Moyes and...

Re: West Ham United v Chelsea - Official Match Thread

And precisely what good is that? Surely we need to get some quality in the middle of the park so that someone like Hernandez gets some sort of decent service and doesn't have to rely on the odd scrap. Too many have dumbed this club down for too many years now. They treat the club as some non league...

Re: West Ham United v Chelsea - Official Match Thread

We don't play two up top though, do we? We play one up top, like many sides do these days. We need a striker who can come in when needed and play within our system. He's not that guy. I think most of us rate Hernandez, but he's been a square peg for all three managers he's played under. As good as ...

Re: Post Match Interview on Sky

It seemed like they wanted us to know that they were the two that really do care,and that they stood up and kicked some arse in the dressing room after the Wolves game. It does seem that this happened... and worked. Keep on kicking em lads ! Are you really this deluded or are you joking ? Pity he d...

Re: Post Match Interview on Sky

Probably because Arnie had an injury and poor old Nobes was rightfully hauled off after 71 mins so he couldn't blow another 3 points :(

A very sad and tragic situation. No words can help unfortunately.

Re: Obiang

Doesn't do a thing for me , but he has earnt his place in the next game , along with Noble , why Rice hasnt started all the games is beyond me . According to a couple of unreliable sources, Rice gets paid less than 3 academy players! The board refused his request for 30 grand a week.They sure do kn...
