  1. Welcome aboard , Hugo . Watch those sneaky hamburgers .

  2. An excellent move..
    We have to get serious about the quality of our club if we are serious about WHU’s future.
    Let’s survive the drop, and then find a pathway for next season’s top 6 (= lot’s of money!!).
    Seriously, I don’t even care if we don’t make the top 6 next season- at this stage of life, I just wanna see our team playing nice football (like Spurs, Liverpool etc).

  3. Why is my comment awaiting moderation??

  4. Just the other day I made the same question . The answer was honest . I was told it is everyone and not pinpointed at me . I accept the respons .
    I think just as long as you are not abusive and extremely provocative towards others on this forum you should be ok . But that doesn’t mean I support the March or the protests .
    In fact some of these marchers are probably not even West Ham Fans .
    The Board is trying hard to get things right . They deserve at least our pacience. They are trying to make the right moves in this very complicated & competitive world of Football . Good preparation is the basis of any successful project . If we survive this season we can at least look forward to something better next season . Mid table would be ok ( as we are so used to being just a number amongst 20 ) but a top six finish is what we crave .
    Really want AC up and fit and fighting again … we have missed him for two years in realty .

  5. Somebody is going to feel the backlash of our poor performance over the past couple of games . As a fan of many years I have seen it time & time again . We will very likely hammer Burnley and gain three points only to be let down on the following game . It’s part and parcel of who we are and the West Ham way . Like it or not that’s what we do best .
    Ups and downs are our trade mark , sadly , there are too many downs at times to cope with as fans . We are trying to increase the percentage of ups as regards the downs . I feel that we shall survive this season as a Premiership Club ,, but only just . What we obviously need to do is build a stronger squad that wants to play for the Claret & Blue and all it represents . We have seen and heard the ideal and theology of buying British,, but it hasn’t happened . IN MY OPINION IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN . big foreign names don’t work without megga bucks . The mighty shall fall one day ; what we need , is to be there when they do .
