  1. Would that be that respect the point football OR would that be the Westham Way ?
    Good entertainment Hugh just what we need next season,
    Let’s be a club that is known for all the right things in a corrupt world of football lets be the exception that gives the fans value for money

  2. Agreed bubs, some good football and a never say die attitude…even though PDC wanted to be subbed after the third pen shout.

  3. Di Canio, Lampard, Ferdinand, Cole (Joe… lol)… Nice video, this is the football I like and these are great quality players… not the kind of rubbish of the last four-five years… Watching this video and thinking about what the fat man did and the players he bought… Well, I don’t think I should say anything else… Anyway, was that referee blind??? lol 🙂

  4. Kind of a rollercoaster after that…Roeder, Sir Trev, the Icelandics, Ljungberg, Dyer, Pardew, Zamora, Tevez, Zola, Grant…

  5. Ah football as it was full of entertainment, flair, skill and a bit of passion. Made the mistake of reading other forum this morning and my god the pessism is amazing, complaining about a back up keeper, head of recruitment leaving, moaning about no new manager and the names bounded about… Over 35 years I’ve seen the good the bad and the indifferent but I’ve never heard so much pessism, we’ve got a new ground, we’ve dispensed with the most overrated manager in the history of football, the back room team of mercenaries is disbanding but these fans are panicking it’s beyond me…

  6. Yeah i read the doom merchants earlier.Funny.Clueless.Enough said 😉

  7. Ahah… Yeah, I read those experts too… According to them our first purchase is useless, Jussy was better… Those funny people are the nostalgic Sam Lovers… Lol

  8. Lol,most of them didnt even have a clue who he was,lol.Shows how knowledgable some of the so called ‘experts’ are,haha,think i prefer to be a rabid dog rather than a clueless goldfish 😉

  9. Ahah… Do you prefer to be a rabid dog Boys? Sorry but I prefer to be an ignorant pig… Lol

  10. Remember it? How could anyone forget it??

    Win or lose (and i’ve been there on plenty of occasions where we’ve been on the wrong end of a result like this), you can’t deny it’s entertaining, and that is what we’ve all been pleading for the last five years.

  11. Quality game,loved it.I had the right hump when we were 4-2 down.Bradford were near bottom & i couldnt believe it.Then Paulo decieded to stop his one man protest & we did the business 😉

  12. *Paolo,better get his name right or he might hire a hitman 😉
