john carew to villa - swapped for baros.
a good buy i'd say. carew aint amazing but is miles better than baros
What an absolute fucking idiot that man is. Warnock seems to somehow suit Blackburn, and I reckon he'll be a good replacement
60,000 a week! and then he's got a get out clause.
football is stupid now!
he's allowed to leave. i'm sure he said something like, "proud to wear the west ham colours..." or whatever
my evidence is that i read it in metro, which is basically gospel
and I'm not trying to cause offence. But how is turning down Liverpool for West Ham not idiotic?
60,000 fat ones for 6 months
lucas neill is definitely more of a west ham player. he'll get much more pitch action there anyway
And if you meant Arsenal, then that's just silly. Come to think of it, even if you did mean Liverpool then that's still silly
Have West Ham always been keen to get him? Or is it only since you've been fucked at the bottom of the table and are offering stupid money to average players? Liverpool have been after him for months - everybody knows that. He wouldn't have been sitting on his arse there, either. So, he might have played only 80% of the games or something. That's what happens when you play for a big, successful club. He had a real chance of winning trophies for the first time in his career but instead he opts to go for the money. He's already obscenely wealthy. I don't usually berate footballers for their greed, but there's no denying it this time around, no matter how he wants to dress it up
But becoming a 'big club' doesn't happen within two years. There's more than just impressive finances to it
Lucas Neill is a pretty solid right back. Nothing amazing, but then full backs rarely are. It's just that his blatant lack of ambition really, really surprised me
i cant be arsed.
they were a yo-yo club for years...
I actually want you to stay up, as you're certainly a Premiership team. I still don't see Wigan as one, so I'd be quite happy for them to join Watford down there. Also, I hate Neil Warnock, so they'd probably be my third choice for the drop
You need a total overhaul of the squad though before you can push on. People forget that it's largely the same squad that struggled to get you promoted from the Championship. You've got a good manager there to do it, though
Maybe you'll achieve a top half place twice or win an FA cup or something but "big club"? No way.
"I also feel that given two years, genuinely, we could be bigger than you [Liverpool]"
Haha, that is probably the funniest, most ridiculous thing anyone has ever said about football.
When West Ham have won 5 European Cups, 18 league championships, 7 league cups, 7 Fa Cups, 15 Charity Shields, 3 European Super Cups and 3 Uefa Cups, then maybe West Ham might be approaching the size of Liverpool. You'll be lucky to become the 3rd biggest club in London.
One semi wealthy biscuit company owner takes over and you sign a few average premiership players and West Ham fans go crazy. Lol
table than Baros is in the 6 yard box.
...although he'll end up at Man U, we were the team who made the £10mill bid for Bale yesterday. Hmm. I'm not sure I agree with throwing that at him, but I've not seen that much of him playing recently. Still better there than on Young.
....i worry about my lot sometimes. Rumours from the Spurs forums:
OMG! RONALDO'S ON THE PLANE TO LONDON
DAMIEN DUFF TO SPURS AFTER FAILING TO SETTLE IN THE NORTH EAST!!
LEDLEY KING TO NEVER PLAY AGAIN!
plus they all still think JJ is shit. and we all know he isn't.
had signed on loan at milan a week ago?
i believe the rivaldo deal was pretty close. He even wrote a letter to the club explaining why he had chosen milan over us. As if he needed to explain.
...i didn't like Rivaldo till then but that was kind of cute as I recall.
We could do with a left winger and a centre back and just someone like Ginola or Klinsmann to turn games. Every other bastard team seems to have someone who might switch on for five minutes and change a game.
we have ghaly.........
ive also heard that shevchenko is going to west ham on loan. good old football365.
