Re: £20m bid for Cairney

Considering Fulham are now in the PL, I imagine that we'd have to double what we allegedly bid and he isn't worth that ! But 'Sky sources' have been wrong before. There are sources, and then again there are so called ITK's who claim to be sources. ;) Not sure what an ITK is, but it sounds like it i...

Re: I hope we don’t sign Mawson geo and gonzo

My thoughts exactly. He's overrated IMO. Unlike Diop, he's not the finished article, and yet we'd have to pay top dollar. Much, much much better value to be had elsewhere IMO. Because of injuries, I think we need a good 5 or 6 CHs over the season. So we've got Diop, Rice, Ogbonna, Reid and Kouyate (...

Re: Diop signs

Already seeing fans on social media bemoaning the fact that signing someone like this spells the end most likely for the likes of Oxford and Burke. If any of our young lads coming through are good enough, they'll get games. I don't know what some people want in all honesty. If we don't sign anyone ...

Re: Defensive midfield bargain?

Didn't take much notice tbh I don't remember his name being mentioned in glowing references this could just mean he went about his business and performed well without fuss,but it's a hard position to shine but easy to look bad.COYI That's the whole point; he doesn't draw attention to himself, which...

Defensive midfield bargain?

We're looking for a creative mid and defensive mid: There's a fantastic defensive mid who can also take a pen: Palace's Luka Milivojevic :...Even looks great in Claret + Blue! For outside top 6, IMO he's absolute dynamite. One of my favourite players in the Prem and COMPLETELY under the radar. BUT n...

Re: Collins .

How I love that man....and now they toss him away like an old wellington boot. Always put a shift in respected by the fans and West Ham through and through. I have to bow my head to Moyes....thank you for playing him today he deserved a last appearance and in reality a testimonial wouldn't of gone ...

Re: How would you make PL Teams less negative?

Half a point each for a 0-0 draw. ;) Great idea - Or completely overhaul the points system: 1 point (each) for scoring 0-0 draw or for 1-1 draw 2 points (each) for a 2-2 draw. 3 points for a 1-0 win 4 points for a win scoring 2 goals (e.g. 2-0, 2-1). For more than 2 goals see below: 1 bonus point t...

No team outside top 6 scored more goals than WHU....BUT no team let in more either!

Bonkers! Outside the top 6, we scored 48 goals: 3 more than the closest other two (Bournemouth and Palace....yes, Palace who didn't score a goal for 7 games, was it?!)....Yet only relegated Stoke let in as many; 68....Oooh dear; not good. Weird: Moyes is supposed to be defensive minded, so how does...
