Re: Scott Parker

Was it any worse than our 2 turgid displays at Man Utd this season? In all honesty------yes. Partly because the team they were playing aren't as good as Manchester United and partly because in their situation following our result on Saturday , they desperately needed 3 points. They nearly got them ...

Re: Breakaway super League

Say they start the super league in August, how does that impact champions league qualifications. Leicester,West Ham and Everton would then be the highest finishing clubs this season.

Mourinho walked out of Tottenham and then they sacked him. Wonder what Klopp thinks.

Re: "special" one

Burying bad news. No reason to sack him until the end of the season if Champions League qualification is no longer an issue. There is a rumour he refused to take training today as he was incensed over the breakaway and there was a massive argument with Levy. Not got a lot of time for Maureen but fa...

Re: "special" one

How funny to sack a manager before they play a final against Man City. And Tottenham sticking their big noses into the idea of a breakaway league as well...

Re: Scott Parker

Watched Arsenal v Fulham earlier today and following on from recent discussions here about the merits of Parker’s management it has to be said that the way his Fulham team plays football makes Allardyce look like Mourinho back in his Barcelona days. Utter turgid crap. And when all their loan player...

Re: Radical proposals for the reform of English football

Is it not the case that actually all that has happened is a clutch of clubs have agreed to discuss the concept of a break away league.

It's not something that has any actual concrete substance or anything that can be introduced in the next few seasons.

Re: Coronavirus

Which figures? Deaths or pointless total cases? Cases. I know what you are going to say and I will agree with you too.It`s only the elderly and vulnerable that die. It`s just a question on how the government will act? Another question,even though the economy has suffered big time,do you think the r...

Re: West Ham vs Chelsea Official Match Thread

This is the toughest match of our remaining run-in and we need to cut down error. Dawson won't participate due to his suspension and he will find it hard to break back in the squad. Fabianski apologies to our fans for his error yesterday and desperately to amend this coming Saturday evening. I neve...

Re: Newcastle vs West Ham Official Match Thread

What we have discovered with the abscence of Antonio and Rice is, there is no circumstance where Conor Coventry or Ademipo Odubeko will be used. They are part of the bench but like the 3rd choice goalkeeper completely redundant. The manager declared he was happy with his squad in January (why ?) So ...

Re: Newcastle vs West Ham Official Match Thread

I didn’t see today’s game . I saw the home game against this lot and I know why we lost that ... So how did he play today ? For me the problem is we don't have the players who can dictate games. In other words we have to be reactive, which we seem to be pretty good at. Unfortunately when the opposi...
