West Ham United Message Board
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!

I am happy to see where Arsenal will be in six games and am quite confident it will still be in the top 1 to 4, but I am not speaking about the next 6 games. After one third of the season Arsenal have been the best team.
And if Arsenal are doing 3 points worse than you expected, and you expected them to be in 1st than I missed that prediction and that you had higher hopes for them than I.
Perhaps you can tell me what you think Arsenal's final league position will be.

....your math undermines your logistics,,,
...and I suggest you stop quoting "statistics" too...
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.
Did you all like Southampton's 89th minute goal?
I thought it was a shame the Saints didn't score a second goal in that 5 minutes of time that got added on, so Moanchester Uniturd should be happy they scraped a 1-1 draw at Old Toilet and got a point.
LMFAO - loving your shallow football club's decline!
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.
Agreed, Man U have an unwritten contract to get decisions when they need them, always have done. Every team has it's good and bad luck but there's something very wrong with why Man U get as much as they do.
I was once at a game and went to the game with a bus load of off duty Ref's. They said that the FA and Ref's association are scared to death of Fergie because he is the ONLY manager who challenges in writing every decision he does not agree with and if it is received in writing they have to go and see the manager to discuss these matters.............In short, they air on the side of Man U far to often so Fergie is off their back because all in all he has to feel more than happy with the way decisions have gone....he was a bully boy. Still rubbing off with the new boss but hopefully this will wain soon.
As for Europa football...........I think Man U will get at least 4th, what with Ref's help and the fact you don't need to be very good to finish 4th in the Prem anymore.
"where the keeper dives for the ball, misses it and makes contact with the player"
Thing is, Gov, the keeper didn't make contact with the player, video replays of the incident clearly proved that Welbeck's trailing leg made contact with the keeper first, and not the other way round. For that reason, NOT a penalty.
...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.

Humiliated again, yes, you have been Altree and let's be honest here, it's nothing new!
What's wrong with the Man United board these days?
Is that pesky geordie still getting you all riled up?
geordies, geordies, geordies everywhere!!!

Oh look, Geordie-fool has had to dig up a couple of old IDs after that embarrassing humiliation I handed him!
Post in Latin, Geordie-idiot, give us all another laugh!
Frustrating to say the least the situation you guys are going through. You would think and hope it would all be sorted by now and the fans given some impedous for a progressive future. Hang in there, men.
Pools have 5 out of the last 6 and things are slowly taking shape. See how it goes the weekend for me, if we can hold our shape and add to it you never know.
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.
Thanks FOG thought I might have been out of sync there. I couldn't just place him. I think I got mixed up with Lee Dixon. BTW help again(cant think) who was that great striker we had who went to Man Utd. many years ago, and I think he died not that long ago. Irishman I think. Frank something? anyway he was my wife's favourite, and I remember getting jealous when we went to Highbury, and this guy was playing. Great with his head is what I remember....... happy days
