Why don't the FA cancel ALL football until 1st June and then play all remaining games then behind closed doors during June/ July/ August. Euro 2020 will be cancelled, so all European leagues could do the same.
Only an idea but it seems a logical one. The new season could start October.

{Ed002's Note - When it comes to it there will be options}

That may well happen Markwhu but UK experts say that the peak of the outbreak here will Be June. So probably there will be lots of teams with a number of players missing so they won't be happy playing important games fielding under strength teams.

Its impossible as even playing behind closed doors its a contact sport and cannot be played with 22 players on the field in June or August. We will be lucky to get a new season in September this year.

Agreed Bideford👍I honestly am still surprised sport is being discussed at all, most love our sport, but the whole nation and world is at risk at the moment! I don’t wish to make a pessimistic post as we are going to come out of this nightmare sooner rather than later hopefully, but it’s survival at the moment because we haven’t even reached the peak of this nightmare yet apparently? All this s—- about the Olympic Games, Seb Coe as leader of World Athletics should have had the guts at least a week ago to completely abandon them, I wonder why? Sebb Blatter comes to mind! ⚒⚒⚒.

It's been reported we are trying to tie up a deal for forward Serhou Guirassy. I hope it's not true. He's played approximately 150 games in France and scored about 30 goals. Hardly the sort of forward we require at £20-25 million.

In the premier league or not our main priority next season has got to be to sort the defence out starting with full backs.

Seems tony cottee is recommending ollie watkins. I really like the look of said benrahma.

Frederick's out for some time so Moyes will have to make a decision on playing zabaletta or ngaski at right back against Liverpool.

Another stupid decision from the MP era to sell Byram to Norwich for half a million

No doubt we will play 5 across the back with Mgaski Zab, Diop, Oggie and Cresswrll

Could zab play defensive midfield alongside Rice.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Feb 2020 11:24:09
Matsuaku, cresswell, noble would be dropped. Bring ngaki and Johnson in as full backs. Play rice and soucek in front of back line fornals, Anderson antonio and bowen up front rotating around so liverpool's back. line can't pick up a forward.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Feb 2020 19:54:28
The way things are cannot be blamed entirely at moyes feet. Ok, am not happy what hd did with bowen and feel he needs to change things, but what's he suposed to do if he has a striker that can't score. At least last time we had arnautovic who ran at and in behind defenders and that's what we need.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 09:03:23
Lets face it guys these are the games we must win to secure us in the Premiership.
Southhampton, Newcastle, Burnley, Norwich, Watford, and Aston villa.

We need 5 wins from the 6 above anything else we get is a bonus, i would like your comments but this is what i think. I am not saying we should roll over in the other games but to me these are vital to us staying in the premiership i am trying to be realistic.

Not a chance mate not with moyes we won't we knew before he came he wasnt the right choice but the chuckle brothers new best not . We need new owners these two money grabing clowns will ruin us just like the did with brum .

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 13:40:28
I'm not bothered either way anymore. What I want to see is us playing our best 11 and the out of form orpoor performers dropped allowing youth to come through.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 17:47:09
All I want to see is 11 players giving it there all, if we get beat then so be it but there has to be fight and spirit!
3 wins will see us stay up, the players need to now stand up and be counted.
Moyes is not accountable for this mess, is he the right man I don’t know but pellegrini wasted big money and let some good players go in the process!
COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2020 00:08:04
Bonzo you have a short memory, if it wasnt for MOYES we would already be in the Championship.
Give him a chance mate
We all thought Pel would be a step up but him and his team were a disaster.

22 Feb 2020 11:25:00
Damn right give the guy a chance.

I'm not sure we need 5 wins in the 6 you mention I'd say 3 and a draw. COYI.

If we are relegated, there are only several people to blame, who in my view are totally responsible for this situation. the number one culprit is MP, the others are his team of Husillos and hangers on!

MP was given a free reign and has single handedly ruined the club with overpaid foreign imports that had no Premiership experience and at least one home grown player that was a disgrace to those who sanctioned his signing and the medical team that passed him as fit!

An absolute waste of tens of £millions! DM has almost no chance of what he has inherited and is totally blameless for this relegation situation! No matter who had inherited this shambles could be guaranteed to keep us up,.

any fans with a bit of common sense should know life doesn't work like that! Let's hope there is still some possibility we hang on, but I will predict we will not make it this time. it's too far gone!

We need 11 players with fight and effort like Antonio, Rice and a couple of others but sadly not enough to make up a team. ⚒⚒⚒.

You are bang on.

Perhaps someone can help me out here but I hear moyes doesn't think fornals is up for relegation fight? Quite clearly he thinks masuaku, snodgrass, noble lanzini and cresswell (probably the the players that are consistently poor) are. If this is the case then it seriously questions his management credentials.

As long as these 5 start we will struggle. These 5 should be dropped permanently bring xande silva, Anderson, bowen, fornals. Anderson and Antonio kn either flank with Bowen behind silva.

At least it's trying something a bit different but again, we still have rubbish full backs where we always struggle and after all these managers we still have the same rubbish full backs.

Best form of defense is attack, why did we just sit back and let city have the ball, if we attacked them then you never know what will happen, we could've got free kicks just outside the box or we could've got a penalty and it also would've kept city away from our goal, would they play like that if it was an FA Cup final, I don't think so, they are more or less saying that they are going to beat Southampton at home but that is not a gimme!

Any premier league team not to have an effort on target in 90 odd minutes I don't care who you play that just ain't good enough by a long way. COYI.

07 Feb 2020 07:02:36
Just reading paper talk on sky sports app, it says that David gold has not ruled out selling West Ham, but also says that he and smegal or gollum (which ever one is which) should be thanked/ praised for keeping us in the premier league. REALY.
What about moving somewhere we didn't want to move. thanks.

What about bringing in players YOU want and not the team gaffer. thanks.
What about letting the manager mangage and stay out of it. thanks
What about making sensible offers to players that actually would help the club instead of penny pinching to make the numbers look better for you own pockets.
THANKS

Do me a favour, stay up or go down, sell, let us start again if we have to. If we stay up then amazing and I hope you can sell to get more money for your lavish life. But the fans don't need your stupid statements like this, you add fuel to an ever growing fire. I love my club and want to see them PLAY good football in the best league in the world, if we go down you will take a lot of the blame so either shoulder it, and sort yasels out or go.

This is not fair on the fans of the club. And through stupid comments like this you wonder why we get annoyed and protest and show anger and in turn is helps the media and tabloids hate us that little bit more.
Thanks DGS and lapdog Brady.

Well said Whitby, hit the nail on the head.

07 Feb 2020 18:30:16
For god's sake the time for protests and having a go at the owners is at the end of the season.
This is doing nothing to help the team, do you all honestly think all this doesn't have an effect on the players and management.
I am totally with you all against the owners but would rather focus my attentions on supporting the team at each home game.
There is plenty of time to protest at the end of the last game and the weeks after that.
Divert your anger at VAR which is killing the game little by little each game.
Soon we won't be cheering a goal or the players celebrating until VAR confirms it.
Wouldn't mind too much if they got the decisions right but there are more mistakes made now than before VAR.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 19:55:18
Problem with var is that it's still down to interpretation by another ref watching a replay. Last saturday mark clattenburg pointed out that ogbonnas own goal should not have been allowed because fabianski was fouled. A var look said it was a goal? How does that work.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 21:40:26
And speaking of VAR, I just watched Lucas jutkevic score for brum and the commentator commented what a great goal it was however, he clearly fouled a defender before tucking the ball away. The same BRILLIANT individual goal would have been disallowed I premier league because VAR would have found something wrong in the previous 25 mins of football.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 22:43:20
Gerry don’t get me wrong by any means I am not and have no desire to travel 250+ miles to protest, for one I have better things to do and two there isn’t no point anyway it won’t get anyone anywhere, all I am saying is, as a fan, if I have read this article and it has annoyed me then others will who have the protest views, that these comments will anger those fans.

I agree totally about VAR it is a joke but like these owners it is here to stay. Looking to the city game this would be great way to change our path but at the end of the day it is city and we all know what they can do on their day. COYI ⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2020 02:04:36
I'm going to get slated for my next comment and that is if it meant sully and gold sold the club if we went down then I'd take that as long as we got TABOR and the road associates take over then I think he really would throw money into the club which is needed and not trying to make money out of running a premier league team which S&G have IMO I wonder how far Albert trip smith is willing to go in his involvement as I think he owns 10% correct me if I'm wrong please ED. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - You are wrong to think that money can simply be thrown at the the club. It can't which is why the likes of Aston Villa and Everton have impending FFP issues.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2020 14:54:29
It’s interesting how frustrated we all get.

If that goal had been ruled out by VAR and we’d won it 3:2, there would have been talk of green shoots of recovery.

It’s a funny old game! 😉.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2020 20:12:30
Personally, I think G and S have been good for us. What’s has done us is when they make bold statements. They need to reframe from doing this. The person to blame was Pellegrini who spent £200m. I think Moyes will be like Big Sam, a safe pair of hands. This is something we need at the moment. Our squad is incredibly lopsided and needs serious surgery. Buying players like Whilshire and Roberto were ridiculous. We appear to be buying anyone without looking at what we need. Hopefully, the 2 new signings will make a difference. 🤞🙏🏻.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2020 08:24:27
Markwhu, well said and we appear to be in the minority in this way of thinking! Sullivan especially just seem to say the incorrect things, making a prediction of hope for the future isn’t “lying”, possibly fanciful and wishful thinking at best! It is a multi, multi million £ business and investment after all, they have done nothing unlawful? The incoming transfers have been a “car crash”, as Mark says, no thought, just money thrown at supposedly big name players abroad to impress supporters, this is what G and S and all the fans have got for what a lots of fans wanted the board to do, let a manager manage, thanks MP👎👎 Now lots of them still complaining, some should remember what they wished for?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2020 18:29:54
Every team makes bad signings!
We just seem to be capable of making more, there needs to be an overhaul of the recruitment policy!
Whatever happens there needs to be a massive clear out this summer, I just hope that we finally start to use academy players as we keep hearing about them! G and S have stabilised us considering we were nearly gone 10 years ago, if Michael tabor was serious he would of bought us then. Everyone stop moaning about the owners and throw support behind the team. Today was our best result and maybe will help us avoid relegation! COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2020 11:35:46
Be careful what we wish for, all owners ultimately run a club to make money out of it, so its wrong to slate our owners for taking a pay because any other owner we could get would be no better. I personally think G&S have taken less out of the club financially than they could have taken, when you compare to others.
Bad player investments can happen to ANY club, look at Man Utd under Woodward, even Liverpool before Klopp. Also, we have the biggest assets we have ever had right NOW in Rice, Anderson, and Diop, that's positive.
MP was a result of FAN PRESSURE, demanding a high profile manager with control over transfers, and a big budget, and look where that got us.
My point is, just like in our own lives at home, BAD and RASH decisions are made during arguments, and right now all we are doing is pushing them into these decisions as they try to calm the unrest since the move. I agree Sullivan needs to be away from transfers, and i see ZERO benefit in Brady being at the club. But them two at the club doing their thing is FAR less damaging than fan unrest impacting the players on the pitch and making us an EASY target for media during a relegation battle. One thing is for sure, us FANS are the 12th man, and therefore we would be equally responsible for a relegation if we do not support our players first the best we can.
If we are truly the best fans in the game then we would be supporting our players first and foremost. Separate the unrest from the players on the pitch, support Moyes to do his job, sing Anderson's, Haller's, Fornals' Fabianski's name and make them feel wanted and supported. Boo the board if you want, but 10 mins AFTER the match when the players are down the tunnel. Keep it separate.

If your sensible with putting money in the club as Everton and villa should know the rules ED the throw the money wasn't meant that way ed I should have worded it properly I meant by throwing his money as if a player becomes available there wouldn't be this penny pinching and trying to call the shots as a player belongs to a club they call the shots not sully and pay what the club wants if it's sensible and the players valuation is what west ham think is fair what percentage has trip smith got in West ham please Ed. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - Smith owns 10% of the club under an American legal entity. He is not going to be throwing money at West Ham. The club need to work within their means and not breach FFP.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2020 04:41:04
Cheers Ed think it's a bit harsh on CITY what's your views as I don't really understand it all the fair cap cheers once again Ed. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has been found guilty of over-stating their sponsorship with the owners making up the difference so it looks like they are within FFP. As an example, if their income was £400M with £150M of sponsorship included, and outgoings were £400M - then everything is fine. If however, the sponsorship was only £75M and the owner was boosting it by £75M a year to look like £150M - then that is far from acceptable and then FFP is breached. The issue is complicated by much of the evidence having been illegally obtained (stolen) by a hacker and then passed to a German newspaper. Manchester City will appeal the UEFA punishment - in the meantime the Premier League will have to ponder what to do. So expect this to run for a while.}

Perhaps we ought to bring him back permanently in the summer.

Just watching a bit of Oxford v Newcastle, first time I’ve seen Nathan Holland play, tell you what this kid has got some potential, got no fear and is a very good player. Wonder when we let him go too.

I think he’s still ours, MAC. He’s out on loan, isn’t he?

06 Feb 2020 07:43:32
Then he will be on first team. next year when we are relegated.
