West Ham

Moyes

Really?

Looks like West Ham have decided to be relegated.

I actually laughed out loud

Is he really a terrible manager though ?

Did a very good job at Preston and Everton. So-so at Man Utd, but taking over from Fergie was always going to be tough. Don't know much about his time at Sociedad and he was clearly awful at Sunderland, but overall his managerial record isn't bad.

I think they could have done better and doubt he's the right fit for West Ham, but I'm not sure he's the accident waiting to happen that many seem to believe.

Eastendes are never happy, they could have Mourinho and still moan.

I picked up kits and merchandise from West Ham for a while a few years back, never heard so many moany whiny east London parasites.

Should have bulldozed green street & Upton Park years ago.

Fuc*ing glad they're struggling & stuck in a athletics stadium, got what they deserved.

They moaned big Sam out of the club, wonder if they regret that now!

They have this delusional belief that they should be playing a certain brand of football & should be attracting entertaining players that can play the West Ham way.

An fa cup in 80 & league cup in 81, 36yrs without a proper trophy & they still think they have a brand of foootball it's laughable.

The way the various league tables are looking, we could have a lot of derbies next season. West Ham, Palace, Charlton, Brentford, Fulham and Millwall.

Can't wait to see us outclassed again home and away by Brentford and Fulham with at least one spanking to the tune of 0-4/0-5/1-6, go down by the odd goal at Charlton with them propping up the table and winless for three months, get duffed up at Millwall and whatever else. With at least one humiliation to local rivals on a Friday night in front of Sky's cameras, rearranged the night before, and the Lower Loft half-empty.

Still in a foul mood about the Forest game - apologies for the dark cloud! Football's like drinking really - impossible to imagine living without, but essentially a depressive (or at best manic-depressive) drug.

They have this delusional belief that they should be playing a certain brand of football & should be attracting entertaining players that can play the West Ham way.

Why 'delusional'? I still have this deranged idea myself that the Rs should play passing, creative football with at least one maverick genius in the no. 10 shirt in the best traditions of the club. I'd say it's the other way round: the real sadness is how it tends to be really just the fans who preserve a sense of the 'soul' of a club, if at all, now that we live in times when club crests, colours, shirts and stadium names can be jettisoned, loaded with logos or sold to the highest bidder.

Sounds kind of close to home

Ah yes. I remember that one. A replay, I think, after a draw at Upton Park. I think Pop Robson scored their goal and was Mervyn Day in goal? Still with the habit of advancing with play and standing way out of his goal, despite the ball having been lobbed over him and into the net in a game not long before?
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

Only saw the first half of tonight’s match v Watford. How is Andy Carrol still on the field ?

A lot depends on which division we are in.
