Why is Anderson referred to as F. Anderson?

Who will he be confused with if he is simply Anderson?

Syd Puddefoot

{Ed033's Note - It depends what F. stands for :)

Brazilians have always been funny about the names on their shirts.

2.) 11 Dec 2018 20:22:50
They have a different naming convention to us. his birth name is actually fillipe Anderson pereira gomes. Ronaldinho for example birth name is Ronaldo de assis morreria. I believe it's something to do with having many family names from both your parents in your name. Am not sure though. But the players tend to use one of their given fornames or just make a new name up entirely as in some cases.

I had lunch yesterday with a friend who is a Spurs supporter and we were talking about the delays to their new ground. He said that he has spoken to workers at the site and been told that the main reason for the delays are problems with the electric installation AND that the bulk of the electricians are Irons supporters.

To let you know syd there are more than 50 WH. Scarves in the foundations. At the new end of White Hart. Lane , so you would be correct. IRONMIKE.



15 Jul 2018 16:44:09
What is the position with Oxford?
Has he played in the friendlies?
Is he injured?
Is anyone interested in buy?
Where does he fit into the current 'squad'?

Who will be our captain this season assuming Noble will be on the bench or not selected?

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 15 Jul 2018 16:53:29
1. Oxford has played a part in both matches so far. MP is still evaluating.

2. It’ll be either Wilshere or Arnie.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 19:33:27
Is it true mike we've offered bernard duarte 70,000 a week with a 6 million pound signing fee?

3.) 15 Jul 2018 20:16:56
Syd Puddefoot. I’m no mathematician but you have your questions down as Q1 and Q2 with 6 questions? 😂😂😂. Good questions though.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 21:08:30
Q3, who will be between the sticks?

5.) 15 Jul 2018 23:41:34
Stevie. I think it will still be Adrian between the sticks mate. He’s good but last year was left a bit exposed. I think with good defenders in front of him, he will be far more confident and not make bad decisions because he has no trust in his defence.



13 Jul 2018 12:46:26
Regarding Reid surely if his knee couldn't hack a hiking holiday then it would not stand up to the rigours Premier League. So better it comes to light asap.

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 13 Jul 2018 17:11:19
He should not have made this trip while recovering from first operation. Naughty boy IRONMIKE.



14 May 2018 20:32:47
On this one I agree with Ironmike. I hope that DM's determination to establish a better working environment is successful and that he stays but on his terms. I think if he can achieve this we, the fans, will all benefit with perhaps a larger budget and with the manager calling the shots rather than the co-chairman.

How about Andre Villas-Boas 60% win ratio and available.
Young forward thinking manager who did really well at Chelski and the Spuds.

2.) 14 May 2018 22:43:26
Syd we had it with bfs / bilic when a player comes in and he doesn’t fit the system and is deemed a waste of money the manager gets the blame, we all know Sullivan has got involved and bought players the manager didn’t ask for .
I’ve said on this sites over the last few seasons at least 4 about how poorly balanced our sides are . I’m fed up with it already if the board gets it wrong then 7 jobs Brady should be axed.

3.) 15 May 2018 06:28:14
Lets remember everyone we will hear big names and stadium improvement simply because ticket renewal time is here don't build your hopes up.

So my namesake gets #20 in the altimeter greats list. Well done Syd.

Diop is 21 years old. What is his weekly salary?
How does this relate to the salary offered to Declan Rice?

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 21 Jun 2018 15:09:23
Not easy to compare the two syd, diop is a different level .



31 Aug 2017 09:55:34
Are you wearing blinkers hammerdave?

Would you rather have the Icelanders or Brown or the Cearns family back?

Get real!

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:49:46

Can you explain what was wrong woth all 3 you mentioned please.

The Icelandic bank went bust, and Brown and Cearns?



30 Aug 2017 07:48:54
COY164 I am with you 100%.

One minute sack the manager, board and players and then next week praise them for the players they have bought then a few weeks later they are crap again.

COY164 is right we need stability and not knee jerk reaction like most who post to this site.

Who says the board won't pay compensation for a new manage? And stop this nonsense of 'just pay the asking price' when nothing is that simple.

Thankfully you lot aren't running the club as we would have gone bust.

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 30 Aug 2017 09:34:51
Haha is the coyi64? Set up a new account as no one agrees with you?

2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:42:16
So do u think Bilic has done a good job last season and this then.? . do think he's tactics are up to scratch? do u think his stubbornness and history of playing players out of position is ok.? . do think our fitness levels are on par with the rest of the league? do the players know Bilic's directives and game plan? do think the players look like they are fully behind him.?

genuine questions!

3.) 30 Aug 2017 10:53:48
Sydpuddefoot (aka coyi64) thinks that he has done a good job for some reason and that we should feel sorry for him even though he makes millions. His tactics are all wrong. his methods are all wrong. Clueless comes to mind. The fact he has to ask players where to play is baffling to say the least. He constantly plays players out of position which I think nearly resulted in Antonio leaving. He has no plan B and sticks with the same players that dint perform. He doesn't know what t do. If he doesn't. fair enough move on let someone else take over. I bet you mourinho, klopp etc would drop olayers instantly if their not performing.

But oh well. some people think that that's ok. as we should give him a chance (maybe a whole year isn enough) and let him make his millions and lead us towards relegation.

Its. Shame as I truely thought wh were heading in the right direction. but sadly it just seems like the same old story. Bad owners. milking us dry. Bad managers. bad tactics. Bad signings. Championship here we come!

4.) 30 Aug 2017 16:33:45
You can all take the piss as much as you like. I live 150 miles from the ground and see at least 6 home games a season and travel to at least another 6 away.

I get as frustrated as the rest of the fans with results but I don't sit on these websites after playing football Manager 2017 with my kids claiming I understand the ins and outs of what goes on at football clubs relating to injuries tactics backroom staff board decisions . and then piss and whine that the board aren't spending money on players hat isn't my money to spend!

The board don't fire managers because Hammerdave says they should. Hammerdave as well as the rest of us are insignificant as far as DGS are concerned as it's their money, their club and their decision. Now you lot go and watch your cartoons now.



27 Aug 2017 07:35:37
I like Bilic but he has to go. The cancer is too deep for him to solve it.

I would bring in di Canio as a temporary manager with no contract (I think he would take the opportunity) and see what the instant reaction is. If OK then run it longer if unacceptable then go the route of recruiting from whoever is prepared to come to us.

And he is the point who would want to come to us and possible give up their existing contract?

Syd Puddefoot

1.) 28 Aug 2017 13:49:52
I said the same thing about a week ago. Bring in Di Canio. Loves the club and takes no sh*t . He will demand the best and 100% effort.

You guys aren't real. 'Get the deal done'. 'Get out your cheque book'. 'Don't let it drag on'. Just like Snodgrass, Fonte, Ayew, Hart, et al. - is that how to do it? No take our time and buy the right player at the right price or not at all. And let the surplus players go when we get a fair price.

Well I am happy with the events of the last few months:
1 We are now mid table and should avoid the drop
2 We have an excellent manager
3 He has an experienced assistant in Stuart Pearce
4 We have sold on Ayew and Sakho
5 We have unearthed Declan Rice
6 The manager called back young loan player. These and other youngsters have been given a run and it has established that none of them are currently Premier League quality at this moment.
7 Instead of hanging onto them some have gone back on loan. I assume to be sold or returned to the fold for next season
8 Money has not been wasted on more of the same as the last few windows.
9 A few of the senior players who were not contributing are now getting some form back.
10 If what we read is correct Moyes is bringing discipline back to the club and with a higher level ion fitness.
11 Mpyes has sorted out the goalkeeping situation with Adrian rightfully back and I assume we will not have Hart next season.
12 Fonte is back from injury so we have more options at the back and more cover.

So as I say I am a contented hammer and look forward to a much better season in 18/ 19.

I agree with Ed002.

Our fans are so fickle. A player joins us and the fanfares trumpet. Then you turn against them and players like Noble, Carroll, Ayew, Hart, Fonte, Snodgrass, Kouyate and more become deadwood.

Few of you have anything sensible to say and just spout nonsense.

If you are genuine supporters then do some genuine supporting!

Grow up you cynical bunch.

It's not your money to spend so let those whose it is make the decisions.

If we bought on the advise of we have posted we would be bankrupt.
