West Ham United Message Board
And have you checked that the price you paid isn't actually the lower price? When a player increases in value, the price shown as default is the current price tag. However, if you however above the price with the cursor, it should show the price you actually paid (where that is lower).
FF Scout predict he'll start, bear in mind he's 35, and a lot of games coming up thick & fast... I'm not risking him, prefer Oscar's chances tbh. So I don't know, put a gun to my head? Yes Lamps will start lol... but you might hear a bang!
... this is a tough choice, 3 Gooners? Or Silva & 2 Gooners, and which 2? My thinking is buy Theo now, unless Silva bangs in a couple lol... then have a think, and a drink of course :)
6-3 ... the stats don't lie .... and if the ref says it's not a penalty, it's NOT a penalty!!
Matchcast it no substitute for watching the game, slayer, you should try it one day!
PS: You want quotes?
"By the end, it had begun to feel like an illusion that this is an Arsenal side looking down from the top of the Premier League. Manchester City, looming in their wing-mirrors, had made them look ordinary."
"The visitors may point to some questionable offside calls and a rejected penalty claim - but in reality they were ultimately blown away by the sheer fire-power of a City side who have now scored 35 league goals at home this season and in 58 consecutive games at Etihad Stadium."
City supporter now, are we? Funny, I always had you down as a turncoat and a traitor.
The stats don't lie - Arsenal 35 points, Man United 22 points.
Mind the gap!
"I see Rikk is now saying someone he knows in America has accessed his e-mail."
I said no such thing, once again you lie through your teeth to cover up your stalking.
Napoli needed to beat Arsenal by 3 goals, Arsenal didn't need to score to qualify, that is what showed in our game last night. The lads were taking it easy and Napoli finally managing to score two after Arteta went off means feck all.
It would have been a lot better to have won the group but this group was so tight that was always going to be on a knife edge. Hell,all the Arsenal haters were predicting the team wouldn't get out of the toughest group in the CL, instead the job was done and dusted before the difficult Napoli away fixture.
City is probably the toughest away fixture Arsenal have in the Prem this season, if we lose, it really will not be a surprise and with the 6 point lead we have built over them, we'll still have 3 points to our advantage. If we manage a win (unlike Manpoo! How many goals!?!?! PMSL) then all is good.
It must grate you somewhat Rikki
If you would close the gap in your face, clench you teeth and take a breath there would be no need to answer back.
But the floor is your now. If it's not football related or funny, I won't be posting again tonight.
Do your worst oh wicked witch of the north
I see the Man U 'fans' all headed to the exits in their thousands before full time against NUFC!
I chuckled when it happened against Everton, but I howled with laughter when they done it yet against Newcastle United yesterday!
Same old Man U, only singing when they're winning!
Everton deserved to win, they bossed the midfield, which is usually Arsenal territory.
Never mind CL football, if they keep improving they could win the league, they have only lost one game.
Young has admitted that both "Bacon Face Slurguson" and his successor "Moe 'Szyslak' Moyes" have had words with him about his frequent tumbles in the penalty area, but he does not seem ready to change his ways.
Now there's a perfect example of a stupid footballer who thinks that he's untouchable because he plays for Man U, I guess Man U never paid a penny for him and he plays/dives for free as a product of Man U's legendary, magical, mystical 'youth acadamy' that produced such players as Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and David de Gea to name a few.
...I thought Kipper (Lenny/Roy) had cloned you in his new "Eddy" ID...maybe saved the avatar from the Crime board...it just looked really grainy and old to me...I thought it was shameful for him to do that....on account of your age and vulnerability to flattery...
...you're really the last person I'd have thought to see turn up here...so I tried to shame him for cloning you...now I see I needn't have bothered.....you're as happy as Lenny...sorry Larry...to be back in the fold...except we know you don't do weekends because your clubbing or entertaining your younger girlfriend....
...anyways...I'm glad to see your still alive and raring to go...and sorry if I got it wrong about you being a Glasgow Celtic supporter...this is a football board and they've been doing good...:)....I guess you'd have been really upset if I'd said you supported Rangers ;(
...now that you're back...I got lots of questions to ask you...about life, the universe and everything....
....like who sent you the link to this place...?....can you answer that one...?...or will "Eddy" answer for you...? :D
....maybe you want to ask that question of yourself...because it sure wasn't me...;(
.... and did you take my email addy off of that multiple spamming joke thing you had going...like I asked you to...?
You bet exactly what won't happen "Sweety" ? I can debate anything...go ahead with a subject...unlike you, Julia, you hang onto Rikks shirt tail, havent you got an opinion of your own ? I'll discuss it with YOU, unless you have to run to Rikk for support., as usual !
Anyway, what part of the word terrorist didn't Mandela fit ? The IRA fought and suffered for the same objectives, but I don't see Bobby Sands name mentioned with the same awe...or how about Gerry Adams ? Is he a living icon. ??..don't make me laugh, Julia...Mandela is now being revered purely to make the once racist British/American el al governments look good.
I think you know my stance, and ironically, while I wasn't here on the boards these 5-6 years ago, when Lucas was absolutely tortured by everyone, and dire, I actually told friends to support the lad, as I saw things in him, that I see in Jordan now, such as good pace, work rate, effort and the desire.
Aside from the work rate, and desire, I just don't see these things in him anymore, and I don't even think it's his fault all together, but such is life. Medically speaking, from what I do know, and seeing it so often in the NFL and American sports, tearing the ACL, can be career ending, even if you come back, and it was evident that when he came back 2 years ago, he wasn't right, and I feared he'd hurt something else, and he tore his thigh muscle.
I think these have had dramatic effects on him with regards to his legs, footwork and movement. If he was still able to regain those, and still quite young, 25/26, then we still have a very good (not great) player. But the things you eluded to, cannot be changed, such as vision, passing range, offensive skill, and for me, back to the medical/surgical part, he cannot elevate to win many headers or aerial duels, that I even noticed Sterling and Allen competing for.
In short (my medium), he's luck to get in some timely clearances, or sliding challenges, with a good knowledge of where to be, but that's it. I do know Rafa was suggesting he'd be interested in bringing him to Napoli (along with our whole team), and 1-2 other Brazilian/Italian clubs, but nobody of lofty stature, and at this point, because his pace isn't heavy, just flat out slow, with no good movement and the other limitations, makes him a 4th choice, or important squad player. On second look he was okay vs Spuds, but had Redknapp still been there with all that talent, we know the setup would have been different, and he would have been a target of their paciest /creative player(s).. It's sad, but truth really..
"Comparison with the IRA is justified"
You keep telling yourself that, @r53hole, Mandela was in prison for 20 years before that attack.
You're obviously a catholic, comparing @r53holes who killed for nothing with a people struggling for freedom.
