Just a bit of perspective to fans constantly directing anger at our club and its owners, especially the popular Youtube channels that display inflated reactions and use extreme headlines. All this does is create unrest and negativity at our club, and this impacts results. You are not the problem, but social media algorithams are designed to spread extreme (headline catching) opinions and these ARE a problem. Your desire for clicks and views does hamper our club.
Since Jan 1st:
Only the top 6 have scored MORE goals than West Ham.
Only Watford (relegated) Bournemouth (relegated) Norwich (relegated) and Aston Villa have conceded more than West Ham.
Its clear what we need to fix, and waiting to see if we recieved redundant offers/ fees for Anderson or Lanzini at the end of the window leaves us no time to act, if we can sell them at all. And failing to improve our back 4 is likely a sure route to relegation for us. Selling Grady gives Moyes 3 weeks to at least TRY and fix the problem. It takes BALLS for our board to do this. Bear in mind we have already effectively spent £38m this summer considering January siginings are effectively taken from the next summer's budget. Throw in that we spent a lot last summer as well, and then add the revenue loss clubs will have in the coming years due to the virus, and inevitably BIG and UNPOPULAR decisions are needed.
I am ANGRY just like Nobes that we had to sell a promising academy player in a position we will need to improve in long term. I REALLY liked Grady, but he offered no guarantee of PL success, and in contrast Bowen was £4m more and had scored 16 championship goals by Jan last season vs Grady's 8 goals all season in arguably a stronger team. The step us is NOT guaranteed, and we NEED cash URGENTLY. Instead, deal with the dissapointment, and hope and use your platform to encourage belief that his departure will help us improve in more vital areas.

Let’s face it, this is mostly down to Pellegrini. We have spent a lot of money over the last year supporting pellegrini and this is what is holding us back now.
Football is a business, like it or not! There is only a certain amount of risk the owners are going to take.
Personally I am not sure G&S are the right fit for West Ham but they have steadied the finances since Egghead and his Icelandic’s nearly broke us, so let’s give them a bit of credit.

Very interesting interview with DM in Sunday paper! He’s a very thorough man that sees time as one of his main factors to build! When he took over from MP we were in the bottom 3, we shouldn’t forget that. He wants to play with more “dynamism” and young legs, after DM’s arrival only teams in the top 4 plus Arsenal scored more Premier league goals than us.
He wants to “squeeze everything out of players with the prime example of Antonio or “Micky “ as he refers to him, he now sees him as a centre forward long term.
When asked which player was most important to survival, he said no doubt, Mark Noble, on and off the pitch and wants to see his mentality throughout the team.
He said Rice is the future in WH and in the Mark Noble mould.
He said the board invested £200m in the last manager which proves spending doesn’t guarantee success. ⚒⚒⚒Lots more in the interview but just a few quotes! ⚒⚒⚒.

The bloke’s got his feet firmly on the ground. I hope he can keep us up this season to give himself the time he needs to move forward.

Whorya the highlights of the game are on the website both goals Odubeko scored were very good one with each foot. He is still only 17 but if he striking the ball like that regularly I don't see why an opportunity wouldn't be to far away for him, not sure what the rest of his game is like and why man u let him go so easily?
