I saw some of the match and thought you were unlucky.

Deffo Offside

look like a different team completely from the one put out on New Years Day

seem to "want it" more now

A draw at Newcastle is not a bad result...but you gotta start winning your home games now

Yes, a lot better than that dismal hangover of a display against Reading. Talking of biscuitmen i'm hoping Eggy, our chairman is going to put his hand in and buy another central defender; and most importantly someone on the right. However the midfield is looking better with Nigel Quasi. His face is enough to scare anyone from getting too close in the tackle. There's a few crucial games coming up later in the season, not least, Sheff U, Charlton and Wigan away. We're going to need our donkey of war, alongside our more skillful players, to deal with these, especially Sheff U. As for Reading you've come a long way since those far off days at Elm park in the fourth division but it doesn't get any easier, especially if the players start feeling comfortable next season. However you look a positive side and should be alright if your chairman can put his hand on that fat stash under his bed and broaden the squad. As for the Newcastle 1st goal decision -yes it was a joke- but it shouldn't be used as an excuse. We need to move on and get on with it. As the Isley Brothers said 'We've got work to do, so much work to do'

just heard of a 'final' bid for Matthew Upson, or Matthew 'Up- another couple of million -son'. I can't remember much about him in Brum's relegation year-was he injured?- but he can't be worth 8 million. We have cover with 'Ringo' McCartney, Mears and now Callum Davenport and Lucas O'Neil but maybe Anton's going to be out for a few weeks, as well as our other stoppers, so we might be getting a bit short in the middle. However can't we take someone on loan like Kepa Blanco and then wait for the summer for a permanent signing or when Gabbidon and Ginge come back from injury. Talking of loans how about Freddie Ljunberg (spelling?) for the rest of the season. We need someone on the right ASAP. Come on you Irons! (and Eggy!)

I noticed with alarm how we've been slipping out of the top division- in this forum and have decided to get us promoted back to the first page. If real life was this easy, i would be happy, but as one person put it on one other forum at the moment "God hates West Ham" and with the injuries to Tevez, Anton, Gabbidon and now Lucas O'Neil the power that is has made it clear to us suffering West Ham stragglers that it ain't our season. The last thing I heard we have made an absurd bid of 17 million for Darren Bent. However the old chestnut about concentration/league/on the might do us a favour especially if it allows us to have less injuries. I'll be keeping the faith for the Liverpool game and hoping we can finally get out of purgatory. Come on you IRONS!!

You seem to be good at cliches, Spuddo Let's see where we are at the end of the season. Plenty of time left. By the way when did you last beat the gooners?

It means you've got delusions of grandeur. you can handle the shrimpers but you're incapable of raising your game when it really matters against the big sides (we've got the opposite problem) Yes i've 'given up' calling you the yids because i don't go in for that anti-jewish bullshit we have plenty of 'yids' supporting us and they're welcome, alongside Yossi in midfield. Yes you mentioned a few current problemas but the club is really about the tradition, history and most of all the supporters. We have our few fickle whingers but they're far fewer compared to most other clubs, including your own. West Ham are the best supported club in London according to Lou Maccari and he's right. In the 'championship' we would get bigger crowds than Chelsea, despite rip off ticket prices, a team struggling to reach the play-offs and exotic teams like Rotherham Utd coming to UP. We have brought numerous players through our youth policy and aim to play football as it should be played. If your team went down, which may happen sooner than you think, your crowds would desert you faster than Arron Lennon and his agent. So it's simple we are a football club who have contributed a lot to the game, despite mis-management. It's about heart and soul, the passion of the supporters and walking down Green Street on a freezing cold afternoon but feeling a glow inside. As for jellied eels I hate them. Give me a claret and blue 'Geng Phet' any day. Love E13.

A useful footballer, as long as he doesn't succumb to the West Ham injury jinx. Against the 'Pool we were looking a bit uncertain at the back so he'll offer a bit of decisiveness, hopefully. It's looking interesting down in the dungeon with Wigan falling, Charlton rising and West Ham waiting for fortunes that always seem to be hiding. Wigan have an easier run in, on paper but the next few games for the Irons, against struggling clubs, might start the beginning of a revival. Ojala!

Injury Curse strikes again Upson walks off, a few minutes later the ball goes in. However the injury to Upson is not as serious as first thought, apparently he is due to get back within 3 weeks. Hopefully we won't have been cast further adrift by then, though it is looking bad. West Ham fans are really facing up to plunging back to the fizzy pop league. Most of the game we lacked ideas and seemed to be playing for a draw which ain't West Ham. The form of Boa-Morte (dead-snake) was particularly depressing and Blanco lived up to his name. Zamora noodled away running up blind alleys and Quasi looked the relegation journey-man that supporters had feared. Nevertheless there were flickers of hope; Dolphin Harewood looked dangerous and ready to dig us out of this hole and Nigel Rio-Coker found time to do some work in midfield. Matty Etherington also rediscovered the art of crossing If we do go down we'll be in better shape financially than under Brown, last time, and we should hang onto and even expand the squad. Watford and Charlton up next. This is it or it's mighty Scunthorpe next season. Come on you Irons

Good to hear that West Ham are looking to head where they belong.

Down.

In the words of Keddy."Negative football"

It suits yer

Listen hoofer we try to play the game as the way it should but unfortunatly teams such as the one you support with limited fan bases have to resort to win with ugly tactics at the cost of basic entertainment. This may work one season but the next your'll be down to the fizzy, I suspect . As for 'down where we belong' what have you ever achieved in your history and which of our teams have spent the most time outside the top division in the last 80 years or so? Come back with a more coherent argument you northern troll. :o

Is that it? Must have taken all your resources to come up with a few smiley faces. :D However Good Luck, fella, for the rest of the season, at least your team plays with a bit of spirit, as shown against Totteringham yesterday. :D:D:bah:

555555 sorry guys, now you know what it was like for us Charlton crew for the whole of the 2nd half of last season.

No mate, this is West Ham we're talking about here. Curbs inhereted Pardew's team with all the other problems going with it. With Charlton he took a mediocre team to Premiership status and kept you there on a shoestring and gained respect for doing so. He was shrewd enough to get out when the he foresaw that things had got stale and you were going to be in deep trouble. To be honest he's a far better and more proven manager than Pardew, as you'll no doubt discover when Pardew's honeymoon period at your Club is over.

Curb's has obviously got his work out out at our Club, but I'm convinced that in the longer term that he's the man to sort it.

Well, the time has come, who now has the best reject?

C'mon Charlton,

Cant wait to watch it all unfold

Yeah, it's another must win game to add to the last umpteen we've failed to win It's also hard to get motivated when it's Charlton. If it was the Spuds, L'arse or Roublesea, I would have more inspiration and confidence but it's another uninspiring, workmanlike bunch of journeymen with a bunch of flask carrying addicks anoraks watching them, facing a bunch masquerading as West Ham players though with great backing from our long suffering followers. Whoever wins it's going be a slog catching up with the teams above. However I'll be up for it as the saturday draws closer and yes it was interesting to hear Eggy talking about Pards. Maybe an attempt to dampen some of the cheers for Pardew from the WHU supporters, when the teams come out. In truth I think both managers will get a big cheer though Curbs has definitely come back from his honeymoon and he ain't the most charismatic of people. To be fair I think he needs a pre-season with these players sort them out, get rid of the people who don't want to play for us and then come back strong for next season. Nevertheless with West Ham expect the unexpected; if we can beat the goons and mancs we can certainly beat anyone else and - dare I say it-go on a run :o . Although if we do go down, apart from the delight of meeting Scunthorpe and Plymouth- it will give me a chance to get rid of UBC! but as always for this weekend -as usual COME ON YOU IRONS :D:D:D
