  1. Ever heard of him, but on current form swap him for Ayew.

  2. This fella is typical of who we will look for all the time we have that crock Carroll.Little Pea was a great bit of business but we will never commit real money towards another striker all the time that waste of space is still a possible starter a handful of times a season

    He is a leach on the club

  3. Yep true Jezza,thats why we have had to put up with so many shyt loan signings like Mankini,Calleri & signings like the Jelavics of this world because of Poppodom still lurking on the treatment table ready to rise like Frankstein from it & be unplayable on his day.Its a joke 😁

  4. The clue here is the mail have reported that “””?
    Its a load of Betty swalloks πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    But yes the POV is spot on πŸ˜‰

  5. Sky have reported that carvalho deal is close ??
    Same as same as πŸ˜‰ but fingers crossed anyway 😁

  6. Who was Mankini Radai? Not being sarcastic or anything, but I am worried that my memory has completely gone!!πŸ€”πŸ€”

  7. Eminike was mankini wasnt he lol

  8. Reckon you could be right Gareth. You must be better at me at getting inside Radai’s head-mind you there is probably plenty of room in there! Only joking Radai. To be honest I would have had a job remembering him anyway. I think I did see him score a goal, but dunno for sure. He was mainly a sub I think..

  9. Lol you cheeky b*stard 64.But yeah there is plenty of room in there so you are spot on πŸ˜‚
    Bubs called him Mankini when he signed because none of us could remember how to spell his name right.I still cant,Emenike,Eminiki,Emeneke.Aint got a clue.
    He scored a couple when we humped Blackburn in the cup i seem too recall thats all i remember of him 😁

  10. Another striker? Good grief. We need defenders to plug the hole in the defensive dyke.

  11. We were linked with him before and for the money they want there is better out there. And with AC moving Dismissed bc that will never let him go why I Dk. But agree don’t need a Striker the most. But can’t rely on Sahko and AC to stay fit. A back injury can end your career so worried saks won’t be playing all season don’t want to overplay Chica. But I think only way we get antother striker is on Loan ex: if Chelsea get Belotti or Llorente Michy on loan.
    But a CB 28 or under would be nice or if older and very good on a 2 year deal.
    And hopefully Carvalho and Lanzini will get over is ‘injury’

  12. The plan must be to sign more strikers to solve the defensive problem….that is score more than you concede and seeing that we can’t stop conceding……

  13. Talking defensive problems ! Just read the sun sport round up ? Joe hart gets a strange review lol!! Must be a disgruntled west ham supporter or a spud reporter what with the picture of the flop , a song about his gloves JH1 ( pesh take ), and stats to die for πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  14. What do you expect from The Sun.I know its probably difficult for fans like you to comprehend Lazurus but we dont all spend our time trying to find ways to criticize or rubbish our own players.
    It seems to be your hobby to belittle every player we have.If you read other ratings Hart got between six and seven and took little to know blame for the goals Saturday!

    • Did you say all that with a blue flashing light on you’re head !
      Move on o serious one from the hart appreciation society before the batteries wear out!!!
      6-7 who from Stevie wonder !!! Or fantasy football ! They gave noble a 7 ?? Dohh!

  15. I’d do something about youre Monica as well bradders!
    Its a word from the urban dictionary supplied by grammerman that states you’re a
    Particularly unattractive female with a slightly deformed smile πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    What about frank n stella πŸ˜‰ you can swing both ways then πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  16. ..and there I was expecting this to be an articulate, well considered discussion about a new striker.

    Silly me.

  17. Well you write the script and we will stick to it.
    I didnt know you wasnt allowed to sometimes swerve away from the topic

    Silly me
