Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs of being 3,473 Miles from Upton Park and West Ham United (Aug 2011 - May 2016)
I'm not sure what to think.Sighor Yawn
After the first 10 minutes I thought we were in for a royal hiding. If I was a Citeh fan I'd be well upset with about 16 players passing the ball to players in their shirts they should have walloped us !
So, where do you think we'll end up.I figure 11th at best, probably 12th.
12th at best, which is about right and only down to our early season form. I can't imagine anyone got worse current form than us ? What is it 2 wins in 16 ? Something like that ?
I was bored , I looked.Since Xmas2 wins8 draws7 lossesPitiful.As of March 2ndThe Hammers boss is the new 9/4 favourite for the chop following Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat to London rivals Crystal Palace at Upton Park.
So as Tupper would spin it, we've lost 7 of our last 17 (why mention 8 draws) ! Not we've got 14 points from a possible 51 !
Who's fighting who? Good colours Mr P. Seems like a few people are still jealous of the olympic deal and are making mischief. It is, for sure, a very good deal. Don't need it going wrong now.It feels like the season's over. Well actually it felt like the season was over in mid December.........
If you mean the actual boxers, I'm not sure Filthy they were chosen for their visuals and probably never thought each other. But we were giving the ball away with such regularity against Citeh, I was beginning to wonder how many we were playing against it turned out to be about 16 at any given time ! The season certainly has lost it's shimmer and under a different manager I might have hoped to see a few young uns "blooded", but no point in thinking about that under Tupper. Haven't bothered to follow the latest Olympic news in detail - have Sheffield United started legal action yet ?
Nothing from Sheffield yet to my knowledge. Charlton supporters assoc (or something) have been digging and yapping. Not sure about Orient.La Brady announces cheap season tickets and discounts for youth (be good to see more youth on the field as well!). Well quite right, and there'll be a lot of seats to fill.
Can't complain about prices coming down Filthy, but if there planning to stick with Tupper they're going to need about 35,000 "kids for a quid" on a regular basis. A shot of enthusiasm is required for all - owners, players and fans alike.
Klopp would be fun and would bring all those football hipsters from Hoxton flocking! Maybe even a few high speed rail day-trippers over from the continent!
As I much as I'd like to Filthy, can't quite convince myself that Klopp would come to West Ham and the Brady Bunch, but I guess if he wants back in the Premiership it will depend what jobs are going. Who's getting The Citeh job and then whats the fallout from that ? Also can't see Howe leaving Bournemouth for us - not unless he doesn't rust the set up or commitment form The Cherries Board - he must be King of Bournemouth, probably Emperor too !
Can't see any of those coming here, tbh. What with nobody knowing how our lot can actually play under someone who actually has a football mind, and with the OS pressure an all that. I think that's the only thing that will keep the Fat F**K here- who else will come. Personally I'll take anyone, with few exceptions. Lets hope those that count will agree. If not then I can honestly see nothing but empty seats at the OS and only people saying goodbye to the Boleyn there next season. Not to mention we could have 38 games of straight booin.
Well until the evening of Sunday May 24th. it's all going to be speculation Smitty and even than the Brady Bunch may pull the old "We're having a meeting on Tuesday" routine. So the best part of a month to find out....
I can't see Howe giving up Bournemouth now. He'll get a pay rise and the opportunity to do something special. I can't think of anyone available I'd want. All the noise I hear says he's gone, but I'm sure they'd have a replacement lined up before giving him the tin tack.
