Great effort by the club on Saturday with the christening of the Billy Bonds stand I got choked watching Billy het choked with the emotion of you know what I mean.

Great to see so many ex players turn up as well and what a cheer for Ludo the loudest of the lot after Billy of course

799 appearances - would love to think Rice might beat record - well I can dream can't I?

Hi Mercerl

Agreed everything you said including you can dream bit :)

If young Dec stayed at the club for the rest of his career and say he played an average of 32 Prem games a season ( that's a push with injury and suspension) and a average of 6 FA and League Cup combined, that would total 38 games per season, if you wanted to throw for argument sake a extra 5 for Europe in the future at a max he plays 44 games a season, ( That is far to many on average but let's just say)

He would need to play at the club for around 18 seasons taking him up to 38 to hit even 792 games, the above figures are really pushing it so it would be a case he needs to play until his 40 plus minimum.

Its not going to happen, and i'm so bored at work I just thought i'd mention it :)

Well done Warrington amazing isn't it Billy achieved the 799 when he was 40 having had a complete season out - now get with your work before the boss turns up lol.

Seen reports today WHU interested in possibly signing Anthonio Valencia if Zab decides retire been a great player for Manc Utd but he's nearly as old as Zab

What do you guys think.

1.) 18 Feb 2019 18:18:11
No thanks.

We do not need to invest silly wages on very short term, diminishing players.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 18:18:39
No thanks👎👎.


3.) 19 Feb 2019 02:55:52
At this time there’s nothing of substance to make comment on IRONMIKE.


4.) 19 Feb 2019 15:48:54
There's nothing wrong with having experienced players in the squad (Zaba has been brilliant)

Fredericks doesn't look like he is 100% up to PL standard yet but I think he'll get there

So an experienced option seems like a decent plan when we don't need to splash a lot of cash on a player in that position.

Looking at the various re runs of yesterday's game and in particular the first goal some observation

1 Diop did really well to get back and put the block in unlucky it rebounded straight to Wilson
2 wilsons shot was outstanding
3 Ogbonna turned his back on the shot poor attitude can't imagine that Ginge or even Reed would have done that

Conclusion we need Balbuenna or even Reed back ASAP and we probably need to sign Wilson to stop him scoring against us in future.

mercerl

1.) 21 Jan 2019 08:50:10
It was undeniably a great strike, but I don’t think Wilson is the answer for us.

Gomez for me please and the buzz is we’ve upped our interest in him.

I’m always disappointed and frustrated if we lose a game we should be more competitive in, but we have to remember that we have a ludicrous injury list.

If our entire squad was fully fit, how many of Saturday’s starters wouldn’t have made the team?


2.) 21 Jan 2019 10:33:34
About right Markro, that team was no where near our best.
I have wondered for a few years if maybe our training ground is to blame for all the injuries?


 

 

19 Jan 2019 19:55:10
Sad performance today sadly shows how much we would miss Arnie have to agree with others on here that Carroll not good enough any more and Hernandez added nothing when he came on

Time to start some more of the youngsters next week against Wimbledon including Costa Silva and maybe Arnie as well rather than making him sit at home.

So Daniel (otherwise known as Rodney) says his Brother Arnie really wants the excitement of playing in China. shows how much of a plonker he really is. his statement to Talk sport says West Ham bought him to save them from relegation. shows how bad his memory is - he was bought at the start of the season, relegation didn't come into it. I would suggest if Arnie wants to be taken seriously, he gets a new agent.

If someone comes in with a serious bid £50 million plus, because that's what a striker would cost to replace him. I say let him go.

mercerl

1.) 10 Jan 2019 23:02:17
I agree Mercerl. It was stoke who were flirting with relegation. However, if Arnie wants to go, it demonstrates his true motivation - money! His brother is a complete toss and if my brother was my agent and started trying to flog my services to China which is clearly a crap league then I would suggest my brother never had my footballing interests at heart. I’m with you, £50m let him ruin the rest of his career by playing in China. We may not be able to replace him with a better player, but I would bet a pound to a penny we will get somebody more committed.


2.) 12 Jan 2019 09:10:44
Agents continue to throttle the game and inflate prices ludicrously.

I’ve always thought that each country’s PFA should look after the interests of the players and act in an agent/ negotiating capacity.

Pipe dream, I know, but there it is.

Etched the end of the woman's semi final hadn't realised it was on the red button and I might to Wembley tickets are good Vale and kids free but guess what it's on 4th May same day as our last home game zwell done the FA great planning why not have all Wembley games after the end of the season.


 

 

13 Apr 2019 19:26:11
That's another 3 points lost due to incompetent officials How is it the so called top 6 get away with it time and again.

mercerl

 

 

12 Apr 2019 18:30:20
So against Man Utd what we all thinking?

I would like to see us start with a back three - Diop/ Balbuenna and Ogbonna with Cresswell and Fredericks behind Anderson (or Arthur) on the left Antonio on the right Declan in front of the defence with Noble or Snoddy as the engine Lanzini just behind Arnie Fabianski of course goes without saying

I think that's 11 I'd be interested in your 11.

mercerl

1.) 12 Apr 2019 20:49:38
3-5-2 sounds good. If available I’d go with: Fab, Ogbonna, Balbuena, Diop, Fredericks, Creswell, Noble, Snods, Rice, Anderson, Antonio. Think Arnie n Lanzini look off the pace.


2.) 13 Apr 2019 08:51:57
Agree with both selections apart from Arnie, to bloody lazy and full of himself for an underachiever, wouldn’t have bee.


3.) 13 Apr 2019 09:00:08
Post went off to quickly twice so won’t bother again🤣🤣.

Awful Awful Awful starting at the top what an earth was going on with Mps tactics - defending corners by putting 3 players zonal across the 6 yard box.

Only after the end of the game I realised that I hadn't gotten out of my seat once can't ever remember that before

I would like to see us start with a back 3 and tighten Zab and Cresswell beaten all ends up today.

mercerl

1.) 30 Mar 2019 23:51:44
It was poor mate, spent more time looking at my nails rather than chewing them ( not often the fact being a hammer) actually poor is wrong, absolute dire.


2.) 31 Mar 2019 08:19:24
watched on TV until half time then switched it off, effing shambles and disgrace! Glad I am no longer a paying and travelling fan, if it wasn’t for our great keeper Fabianski, we could have been 5 down by half time, to many anonymous players on the pitch even allowing for injuries, we know who they are, why oh why does MP continue with Arnie and Pérez?

{Ed002's Note - West Ham were one of two English sides who saw Max Kruse score a couple of goals for Werder Bremen last night.}


3.) 31 Mar 2019 12:50:40
Ed, I am of the opinion whoever we sign, they will find the level of WH play, lack of effort by too many, players get injured long term, we know every club has those problems of course, but it’s the lack of effort and enthusiasm from too many of these overpaid players! I have often thought is there something inherently wrong at the club, the work rate and defending is non existent to often for a Premiership side!
Everton had yards of space yesterday, defending was like a Pub team that had all been on the binge the previous night! Disgusting and disgraceful performance with the usual exceptions of course!


 

 

17 Mar 2019 12:33:41
Well I watched from the stand watched MOTD twice Sky's PL highlights twice and Goals on Sunday this morning g and still don't know how we got away with that Only comment I can make is well done Cresswell for 3 good corners.

Anyone know why MP took Antonio off.

mercerl

1.) 17 Mar 2019 16:47:55
How is it that we can defend so well against the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, but concede five goals against Cardiff and Huddersfield?

Yesterday’s game was bizarre.


2.) 17 Mar 2019 18:48:01
I was thinking the same about Antonio. Besides his off balance shooting which he does far too often he was the only one first half causing them trouble.

There was a lot of talk about Trippier joining us a few years back before he became a regular first team spud I seem to remember he being seen in a few hostelleries with a few of our lads.

Again - every time we get anywhere near 7th or even 8th we way absolute garbage 4 defenders stood and watched the first goal and Frederick's forgot he was supposed to to move up the pitch for the second

How come every week it's Rice who looks anything at all at least he hit the post

Ah well Maidenhead won.

Reports that Liverpool looking at Gomez after Suarez reportedly recommended them.

Agree Mark thought Anderson and Lanzini were poor tonight second half proves Chicharito can't play on his own either.
