Yes, it would....surely that's a bit harsh....?!

If the rumours floating around, that it was LvG who 'pulled the plug' on the Sanches deal, are true, then we ARE in for a third year of misery, because he wouldn't have that power unless he WAS staying on beyond the summer....

FWIW I rate De Gea quite highly and he has been your best player this year and by a distance.
When he goes to Madrid in the summer United really will be screwed. He has been 15 points on their league position in the last two seasons.

Hopefully Navas' form this season will have persuaded Real that they don't need Spanish Dave (he certainly looks the part any time I see him in the CL). If Dave leaves, we're buggered.

A West Ham fan telling it like it is.... Mark Noble should be in France this summer; we deserve better than the dross van Gaal has us playing.

The players don't care any more. It's disgraceful. I don't know if Martinez isn't giving them a rocket for these performances or the players are ignoring him when he does, but there's no way he can come back from this.

I've seen some turgid shite served up by Everton and this is up there with the worst.

Still I suppose no one is going to be interested in buying any of our players after this.

West Ham have apologised for it now and have said they will give life bans to anyone caught.

Not sure why Cainess expected Sully to apologise on the pitch withi seconds of it happening without possibly having full clarity of everything that went on, only an idiot would do so and you don't become a self made billionaire by being an idiot.

5 0r 6 goals isn't bad for a team 'already on their holidays'

Interesting table that was on one of our forums taken of blue moon

This would be a mini-league for the top 8

West Ham United 7 4 3 25
Manchester United 6 4 4 22
Leicester City 5 6 3 21
Southampton 6 3 5 21
Tottenham Hotspur 5 5 4 20
Arsenal 4 7 3 19
Liverpool 3 5 6 14
Manchester City 1 4 9 7

Funny you should say that we've only just started shipping gals since he came back in the side, only our 4th best centre back if you ask me, and an area we need to improve in to step up.

That being said, seems a good fit for you

Looks like those two wrong 94th minute penalties in the last month have cost us dear.

If you can see the utter ridiculousness of the highlighted paragraph, I give up....

This bas-tid takes it upon himself to publicly lambast Manchester United and categorically state there was NO attack on our team coach to the world's media WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING THE FACTS (and that's being kind to him...the alternative scenario is that he DID know and was trying to 'cover it up', which would speak volumes for his intelligence in a modern world were people constantly post pictures of the meal they are about to eat for everyone else's inspection.....surely even a clampit like Sullivan would know that the attacks on the coach were being filmed & uploaded onto the Net by anyone within sight of it.... ).

If he didn't know the facts, he had BUGGER ALL right to slate our Club for a situation that by then was out of their control.

Yes, United deserve abuse for once again failing to make it to the ground in time to prepare for kick-off, but Sullivan's comments were totally out of order.

No I can't, and our fans didn't make you late, end of story.

I also think you're being naive if you think they're going to sack people, because you're also being naive thinking it's down to anyone but LVG whose decision it would have been not to arrive at the time requested.

oh and yes there is nothing wrong with porn , I don't know anyone who doesn't watch it now and again, and have no idea why you think it's bad to make a living out of it

Oh and the fan in that clip is talking shit, all teams fans deserve better, but nobody has a right to be the best all the time and it happens and Man U and their fans are no more deserving than anyone else and in fact less, because they've had so much more to cheer about than anyone, time for other clubs to have some glory.

Point out where I said they did...?? I'm not talking about the late issue (we've already established that United were at fault on that, though your assertion that it was down to van Gaal is utter nonsense...why would any manager want to arrive so late as to give his players less than the best possible opportunity to properly prepare themselves for the game ahead??!!! Utter nonsense.), I'm TALKING ABOUT SULLIVAN'S DISGRACEFUL COMMENTS about there being 'no attack' on our coach! He either had no idea, or he was trying to pretend it didn't happen. Either way, he was BANG OUT OF ORDER making any comments to the media.

As for your 'glory' comments about the WHU fan, no idea where you're pulling that from... all the lad is trying to say is that our away support (which is excellent) deserve better than the dross they have paid to see, no more, no less. I thought it was a very fair comment; nobody has said a word about 'deserving glory', winning trophies or anything of the sort....??

Thought you'd given up

You don't think the final decision on whether or not a team leaves early is down to the manager? Wow!!!!

He said you deserved better and to have world class players,

I don't remember any on here saying West Ham deserved better under BFS, in fact I remember comments like, should be grateful they're in the PL and not relegated and stupid to want rid of him as he's the only manager in the world who could stop us being relegated.

You're right about the Man U fans though would have been an absolute bitch to get back to Surrey and Essex with all that traffic

3 times we've played you recently and each time OT included the only time we heard your fans was when they took the lead, excellent support my arse.

I am very glad your lot came back from holiday many thanks

thanks for clarifying you weren't actually trying to blame Utd it did look like that was exactly what you were saying from your posts

of course clubs have a responsibility to do the safest thing - what a daft question

Your mini league accurately shows where City struggled this year and I have already seen it. We have been awful but fortunately appear to be reasonably tall for a dwarf.

That said, we won a trophy, qualified for Europe and went to the SF of the CL and most importantly didn't get relegated - all in all a pretty good season for us.

More inexcusably, it shows where we have suffered and also man U
