Anybody heard from the raver? Inspired performance today against mighty Rochdale lmfao he he.

I'm here Phil, the raver always shows his mug and doesn't go hiding. I give it large and take it back in good humour everytime. We were utter crap and very lucky to be still in the cup and Rochdale fully deserve a replay.

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.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Feb 2018 21:12:12
Andre Gomes is 24 mate not 34.

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!

Agree0 Disagree1

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

Interesting that I and quite a few others out there were advocates of Leander Dendoncker and January and he was seen as EXACTLY what we needed, however, Moyes wasn't too sure!

Well its even more interesting to hear that in his most recent disastrous performance for Anderlecht he scored two own goals and got a red card in the same game.

I wonder if he is trying to send a message to the Anderlecht management to let him leave in the summer or was MOYES a really good judge of player?

Proberly about as good as the other one you spouted on about for ages then he went to boro. 6 goals in the championship. then loaned out.

17 Feb 2018 12:39:57
Dendonker isn't a bad player his head has been turned as he thiught he was coming to us but he's got to rise above that and be more profesional. COYI.

He could have invited him to turin to watch spurs march on to the quarter finals of the European cup.

Agree4 Disagree4

14 Feb 2018 07:53:55
Because who does not want to watch spurs scrape a draw against a half strength Juventus team.

Agree3 Disagree4

14 Feb 2018 11:00:28
The four times winners you mean and are the best club in Italy, 3 more victorys in Europe and we will be lifting the big ears trophy to complete every European trophy won for the famous spurs, in the quarter finals of the FA cup, European cup and are guaranteed to finish top 4 while building the biggest ground in London. Enjoy your usual relegation battle lol.

Agree5 Disagree3

14 Feb 2018 12:17:47
Shall I address your delusions or stupidity first?

Spurs are not going to win the Champions League even if you fluke it against Juventus's half strength team.
The minute you meet a half decent team in the FA cup you will be out of that too.
"Guaranteed a top 4 place? " Firstly top four is not a trophy and on what basis are you guaranteed that? You are not even 4th right now. how stupid are you?
Finally every West Ham fan knows that we are at best a mid table team at present and will be lucky to survive this year and nobody is claiming otherwise so your point is mute. At least we are not so desperate for attention we post on other forums desperately trying to prove that we are something different, in case you didn't follow that, i'm implying that is what you are doing.

Oh yeah RAVER, I nearly forgot. You were not too happy last night were you? These were your words - "Bossing the first half and still losing, aurier is a liability and should be sold as he cannot defend, he cost us, a win in Madrid now he's given another penalty away again, I'm not bothered to watch the second half and I'm going for a stroll along the canals" and one of your fellow fans responded "Go down to the red lights and let off some steam". How easily you lost the faith last night :-) sorry LMFAO.

Agree3 Disagree3

14 Feb 2018 18:39:56
Agre Phil I did say we bossed the first half and still losing and aurier is crap and I was right as usual, I only posted about the fan going to meet payet should have come to turin to watch spurs march on. It's not my fault some fans from pie and mash land are cranky, mind you I go fishing and I get the bites I want so thank you wh fans 😜.

anyone watch Newcastle v Man United? Shelvey was quality shame we couldn't get him in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2018 08:24:14
Iron. Al, if the papers are to be believed, maybe it was because of everybody’s favourite persons remark👎 at an away game, when the question called out to him was “ why don’t we sign Shelvey” apparently the reply was in his usual diplomatic way “because he’s f——-g useless” whether that was his honest opinion or not is anybody’s guess? So what chance did David Moyes have even if he fancied him which we don’t know? I personally think he’s a great player with vision and when I saw us linked with him I thought what a great acquisition to our team, but my opinions only TV based! Couldn’t see Rafa letting him go in January anyway, to good a player!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2018 08:44:53
PS, my concerns now would be, can we hold on to “Arnie” in the Summer, he must be catching the attention of all the big guns at home and abroad in his current form. He looks world class in my opinion😄👍 Having a big stadium does not make you a big club, maybe the potential, but we are hardly as West Ham a big attraction to already established stars, apart from the has been bounty hunters! We need to start winning something to start building a “big club”reputation and being able to keep our quality players! Also hope Moyes hasn’t been sufficiently demoralised in the transfer window to want to walk in the Summer? Not everybody’s choice initially including me, but for who was available at the time, he’s doing a great job for me under very tight opinated constraints with difficult hierarchy!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2018 14:04:07
with Shelvey on his day looks great all action pings the ball about and gets stuck in but obvious he's got temperament issues but I heard west ham are his boy hood club and I think he would have played his best football with us.

according to ironmike rafa would have been happy to let him go providing a replacement was brought in unfortunately Newcastle went through abit of a takeover saga which wasn't put to bed untill towards the end of the window. I think the deal was dead before Sullivan's stupid comments were made.

as for your arnie concerns I agree he's looking world class he's always had great potential but been inconsistent in the past I think moyes is getting the best out of him and hopefully he can become a consistent performer he certainly looks up for it and is showing great passion for the club. I have the same concerns for lanzini too we must keep both if we really want to progress which will not be easy. it all depends on the summer recruitment like you say hardly an attraction to established stars, what we can do however is sign young quality players that are playing regularly that can grow with the club. for example a few of the players we were linked with like dendoncker, Morrison they both look quality even Shelvey is still only 25. we have an aging squad but if the right players are available age shouldn't be problem but we definately need an injection of youth that can play now and develop with us.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2018 14:06:09
not Morrison I meant Maddison of Norwich.

10 Feb 2018 14:44:23
Like the lineup today hopefully can be start of Hernandez getting chances with Arnie and Mario supplying.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2018 17:31:05
We gave to try and sign DUNK young and great in the air not slow and a great reader of the game and this ain't after the lord mayors show I've said it for months because our back four who were good today are ageing and beed yiung defeners like DUNK 25 years old but I think he'd be in demand come the summer great win today against a decent team and most important a clean sheet and all the doubters of little pea that's what he does given the right role. COYI.

Long time reader here new poster. A lot of comments on here are very sound however some just begger belief. A couple of years ago somebody on here, still posting, said they'd drive Song to the airport themself now some of you see him as some sort of saviour. Same when we employed Moyes, vilified him and now he's the victim. People have to appreciate that football, football clubs and football players are bit parts in big business. Every owner in the land, not just ours (who have a shocking habit of opening traps before engaging brains) is after one thing, profitability. Either to generate an income or a future sale. They were never going to spend big money in January as from a business perspective it was unwise to do so. If we were to go down any player on a big salary would have been sold at a loss just to reduce the wage bill. A lot of people on here for example were saying sell Hernandez in January for a potential 8m loss. Would you buy a house in August and sell it in January for 50% less than you paid for it? I agree the people running this incredible club are idiots when it comes to public relations but they are proven business people and they will look at the business as a whole. My fear is that they think relegation from a business perspective with parachute payments etc and a chance to build again may be a sound option. I hope I'm wrong.

Agree2 Disagree0

Hi Dabber welcome to the debate

The point about not spending money in Jan for fear of going down is noted. but would that be not the reason to spend money on positions we desperately needed to give us a greater chance of not going down, take Dendoncker for example £20m, even if he turned out absolutely crap i'm sure we would off load for something near that, his 22 a Belguim International and if he did get a game in the World Cup and done well maybe even make a profit, so the initials outlays in realty worse case scenario is we may have lost a few mill.

Your right these two are proven business men. BUT not in football, its a completely different than selling smut. When you say business as a whole? . so do you mean if we were in championship and and making £5m profit a year that's OK? . as its good business!

The need to stop lying hire a competent Director of Football and stay in the back ground and run the club, there is enough money in the Prem and our ground for them to make a profit and still enhance the club, by alienating a decent income source ( fans gate money) is really not great business IMO.

Hi Warrington, greatly respect your posts as always written in a considered way. Please don't get me wrong, I'm no great fan of DGS but the problem with buying in January is paying over inflated prices for people you can get later at a more reasonable amount. I agree Dendonker was worth the risk as the investment could have been recovered if the worst happened however not all are like that. We have some great players and reasonable squad depth. What we can't account for is injuries to key players and idiots who get themselves banned for 6 games at a critical time of the season. To this end, from a business perspective loanees and freebies are the sensible option and yes personally I'd take Song as I felt he had a great season and an adequate one.

Just seen MOYES speaking about EVRA and one of his strengths is his professionalism I nearly choke on my dinner REALLY now I know what's wrong with our football club we have complete buttons who own the club and another who manages they must be on the wind up PATRICE EVRA (A.K.A KARATE KID ), COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2018 20:26:57
I know what u mean, but I would like to know what was said to him by the fan to get that reaction, I don’t condone the action but would be nice to be given the facts, Moyes knows the story and has said he understands the reaction ( doesn’t condone ) . Let’s give the man a chance and fr the short time he’s here treat him as a West Ham player .

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2018 12:54:52
Jason’s, well said re the Evra remark, we all know the scum bags that get
pleasure at swearing and hurling abuse at players that mostly
cannot react to the horrible taunts, how would we like that abuse shouted out at us knowing mostly there is nothing we can do, they’re mostly cowards I am sad to say, they should not be tolerated in grounds. I have seen it so many times over, adults with kids shouting abuse at players then their siblings do the same, morons, kick them out! Always 2 sides to the story.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2018 12:54:07
Buffons I meant and I knew CHIQUARITO was our best GOALTHREAT by a mile and majority of people wanted him gone, he was simply being asked to do an ANDY CARROLL ROLE which he is a totally different player than tgat and why MOYES has improved our fitness ( which is what managers are paid to do) i'm dubious of him staying because of my point about CHIQUARITO but with ARNAUTOVIC he simply thought he was a certain starter under slaven and was not putting effort in so I don't think its about moyes improving him he's always had ability because that's why we bought him he just thought he was untouchable and when dropped he perk his ideas up. COYI.
