So, we are stuck with a clueless manager again because the owners don't want to pay compensation. Surely Bilic realises that there is no heart in his team. What is required is a change of leadership - from the very top.

I blame the two Davids. First we lost our ground, then we lost our badge, now we are losing our games. They treat the transfer market as if they are buying a secondhand car - haggling over the price. Everyone knew what Portugese clubs are like. They named their price and we haggled. Instead of effing around, we should go back in for Carvalho and pay the naffing price before the window closes.

As a matter of urgency, we need to search for a new manager and get rid of the clueless Bilic with all his hangers-on. Sorry to say it, but Noble needs to be dropped, along with Fonte, Hart and Matsuaku. Adrian looks better in goal at the moment. For the future, we need to bring on some of the younger players and prepare them for more senior squads.

Morning all, has the chairman got the ball's to sack Bilic and pay the rest of his contact up?, In a ideal world they will be bought out and someone with proper ambition would take us forward, I'm done with all the lies about the ground net spending net level 7 % interest on loans we suffer the same old rubbish year after year and they just get more wealthy it's all about the money for them there not fans at all in my eyes.

Yep. and we still sound surprised don't we. Everyone can see what needs to be done. How can these 'professionals' not see it. I doubt any respectable manager would want to come now. I wanted Marco Silva last year but I got slated for it as the majority said we should stick with SB.

I see Andre Gomes will almost certainly be made available in the summer. I do hope we are not interested as he is well past his sell-by date at 34 years of age.

Andre Gomes is 24 mate not 34.


2.) 16 Feb 2018 07:49:47
That's a relief. The article I read stated he is 34 and I had visions of us signing up another Darby and Joan Club player!


3.) 16 Feb 2018 17:13:42
Yesterday's Talk Sport Live definitely says he is 34, but I checked and they got it wrong.


4.) 16 Feb 2018 17:57:39
I hope we sign Mario . he seems to like the here.

sakho on the scoresheet again with a double.

For RENNES.


7.) 18 Feb 2018 11:51:13
Hard to compare that league with the prem.


8.) 22 Feb 2018 11:58:27
I read that Fonte is off to China. Hope that doesn't influence Mario's decision at the end of the season.

I spoke to a friend in Portugal last night. He said the local press reported we offered £25 million for Carvalho at first. When that was turned down, we upped our offer to £25 million plus a secondhand Ford Capri Ghia with low mileage and only two previous owners. Del Boy and Rodney couldn't understand why Sporting didn't accept it.

I know Snodgrass has come in for a lot of stick here, but has everyone read what he said about our illustrious manager and his tactics? He was left confused over what was required of him and was played in the wrong position every time. Now I realise that is not entirely an excuse, but it does explain a bit and confirms our fears over Bilic's tactical ability. Were DGS wearing beer goggles when they watched our first three matches? I fear for the future.

1.) 30 Aug 2017 10:56:17
Agree. and to be fair everywhere i've seen Snodgrass play he's been a good player. something is not right!


2.) 30 Aug 2017 16:24:26
I agree he was played out of position. However, I could have played better than he did and I would certainly have made more of an effort and not given the ball
Away as much. He's making excuses because he's been outed after a short time.
This is no excuse for Bilic if he did say these things but I would have still have expected some effort from Snodgrass. Antonio wasn't great at RB but he gave it his ALL and nobody faulted him for his effort and industry.
He's a grafter and Snodgrass was a lazy demotivated ass!

bye, bye bilic. please.

If this is a new tactic to take us to the next level, I hope they install lifts 'cos all this lot are too old to use the stairs!

Sam Inkersole got it spot on and is worthy of quoting:
"It's a scattergun approach behind the scenes and that is translating to the pitch as well as players are out of position, the unrest in the stands could be affecting them, even Michail Antonio has spoken out about the headlines in recent weeks. The squad more so than the fans needed the security of knowing re-inforcements were on their way.

"West Ham need a director of football, Sullivan needs to trust that person to get the right players in and not be so hands on with transfers. It's unlikely to happen in the near future and if the club survive in the top flight this season, this circus will roll around again".

I said weeks ago that it would be wrong to assume Moyes would stay past this season even if he kept us up. People were forgetting that there are two sides to every contract and Moyes may not want to stay. I suspected then he was using West Ham United to make his own CV appear better by adding one success. Let's face it, his CV at the moment doesn't set the world alight. that would explain why he agreed to such a short term contract.
I can't agree with WH4ever that Moyes' Everton record was impressive. He was chosen by Alex Ferguson to succeed him at Manchester United as a result of his friendly relationship with Fergie, that's why Fergie recommended him in my opinion.
I do agree with philmac that the board have someone else already in mind. I'd love to see Sean Dyche at West Ham, but I doubt that will happen. I suppose it all depends on whether we manage to stay up and/ or whether DGS sell up or stay. We can't be the only ones who recognise our club is badly administered.

Great? He managed Everton for 11 years. The highest premiership position in all that time was 4th. The majority of the remainder, Everton can be described as a mid-table side. They were runners-up in the FA Cup in 2009. In other words, they won zilch. During Moyes' tenure, they were a boring team to watch in my opinion. How can that be described as great?
At Man Utd, he inherited one of the most talented and entertaining squads in the premiership. Described as "the chosen one", he reigned over a slide into almost obscurity. He had access to one of the largest kitties in transfer funds. In other words, he failed.
At Real Sociedad he managed them into relegation and was sacked. In other words, he failed.
At Sunderland he managed them into relegation, allegedly accusing the board of lying to him as an excuse. In other words, he failed.
In what language can that be described as "great" or even "satisfactory"? If that is what would satisfy you for West Ham, then that is your choice. Me? I've supported the Hammers since 1962, having had the privilege of witnessing the management of the great Ron Greenwood and 'gentleman' John Lyall. Moyes cannot hold a candle to those guys. Think back a couple of months to his appointment. The sighs were almost deafening. Nobody wanted him at the club. Now after instilling a bit of discipline and what could be described as a possible temporary upsurge, he's the best thing since sliced bread? I think not. Let's see what further results he produces first before creating him a saint. I, for one, am still extremely worried about our precarious position. I hope Moyes can pull a rabbit from his hat.
In his defence, he has to contend with one of the worst batch of owners this club has ever witnessed. Misinformation, interfering and a total lack of diplomacy seem to be the order of the day. We are in desperate need of a change at the top in my opinion. Reg Pratt must be spinning in his grave.
Of course these points are all just my opinion, but I cannot remember a time when, having been forced from our home, we were in such a desperate situation.

I said weeks ago that we should not count on Moyes being here for next season, up or down. Quite honestly, I can't see why everyone thinks he's a good manager. Look at his past record: underachievement and failures, riddled with sackings. Again it's believing media hype that he's a good manager, much the same as Mark Hughes and Roy Hodgson. All the media and so-called pundits say they are good managers, but none have actually ever produced the goods. I am all in favour of giving Moyes a chance, but let's not create a miracle worker based on a few games. What our club desperately needs is a change of ownership, a director of football and a permanent manager with a proven track record. Sadly, it's too late to go back to Upton Park.

Be patient. DGS will take us to the next level. The problem is, it's the one below our current level.
