Re: Burnley vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Where to start with that.... Roberto is a good shot stopper. Can't deal with crosses. Or distribute. We know Diop & Balbuena have the capability to be a decent CB pairing. What has happened to them? Oggy must have seriously pissed in Pelle's cornflakes. Likewise Lanzini, now not going to be an optio...

In case you're interested I finished the 5k in 30:30, which isn't bad considering
Well done mate. Can you be in Stratford for January and play midfield?

Re: Noble Captain

Tough one. On merit, at this moment the only option is Snodgrass. But he is a bang average footballer and surely should only be a sub long term, so he can't be a vice captain when he should hardly be playing. He would be my captain for Burnley though, as I would be playing him instead of Noble. Fabi...

Re: Unfair Criticism for Anderson.

I think he is our best player at the moment and technically probably all round the most gifted. He is not lazy as often labelled. He works hard, he is all over the pitch - and he shouldn't be back defending and making goal line clearances - but has to because the rest are crap or can't be assed. The...

Re: Mario Husillos

The two keepers have dwarf paw prints all over it, wasn't it him who bragged how much money they saved? We should have got someone like Lee Grant. Fornals was the star of the U21 tournament and won it. Not a bad gamble, but not a signing we needed. Unless he is the Lanzini replacement. Ajeti was pro...

Re: Has Pellegrini Benn Hung Out To Dry By Owners???

Who said he does ? Actually you did in your original post. No he can't come out with the "he's a crap manager" line but he could trot out the usual bland bollocks most players do when interviewed. And I'm not sure about the team being off his game when Noble is. Personally I think today's version o...

Re: Burnley vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Can only see a loss. I can't believe Fredericks won't be starting, but you know 5'7" Cress will be up against 6'3 Chris Wood and it will be the same old same. That's the sort of stuff that pisses me off, just so naive with the way we match up against the opposition for set pieces, our set pieces and...

Re: Hurry up January!

You know what will happen in January.

Fabianski & Antonio back like two new signings, we'll win a couple of games, get a point off a big scalp and it's all looking good.

Feb 1st, injury curse strikes again.

Re: Has Pellegrini Benn Hung Out To Dry By Owners???

Why does he have to support the manager if your scenario is true ? Who said he does? I don't think he does, but as the captain he has to look like he does on the pitch - and he isn't right now. What is he supposed to do? Say yeah, we all think he's a crap manager and we can't wait for him to leave....
