Re:

The key issue being overlooked (in this thread at least) is the fact (thats right RTT, I said 'fact' ;) ) that Hughes is so keen to sign Nonda. With him, McCarthy, Derbs, Roberts and Gally I don't see how Bellers would fit in. Not to mention the signal it would send out to the younger of the aforem...

Hehe, I still think he's a good player, and that we won't find anybody better for £2 million.

Re:

Just trying to point out that his supposed poor record for a striker is just as good as golden boy Derbyshire's. 8 in 24 starts for Nonda 9 in 14 starts for Derbyshire Shefki Kuqi chipped in with a few goals but he too was a donkey that wasn't worth more than what we paid for him. If Nonda was free...

Re:

Maybe he likes the sound of 50 grand a week though.... Exactly. If someone offered me £100k a year, for a guaranteed 4 years to be an office junior, I don't think I'd worry too much that I wasn't fulfilling my potential as a young engineer. I'd be loaded, I'd have security for my family, and I cou...

Pearce should have started management in the championship or below. Pearce shouldn't be a manager. Phil - I can't get that link to work.... Works fine for me Try Sky Sports or summat.

Re:

I agree with Dan. West Ham started the season well until the argies signed and then plummeted. Perhaps it caused unrest, or complacency we probably wont know. Yes. There was nothing wrong at West Ham until Pardew was forced to start playing an under-performing tevez week in week out instead of the ...

Re:

Sidwell should have stayed at reading, he would have played every game there and been the best player, instead he chooses 50,000 grand a week to sit on the bench and play in the carling cup. I rate sidwell as a class player but the guy has made the wrong move in my eyes, but maybe his agent has adv...

Yes cause he spent more minutes on the field. No point having a superstar and miss them for half of that time.

Re:

But regardless of whether they were shite, would you want them in your team scoring those tap ins? No I'd much rather have our top striker miss 2 or 3 tap ins every game, and score the odd screamer from 25yrds, like that Rooney chap... ;) Everyone knows goals from outside the box are worth double :...

So leaves Ooijer to fight for his place. Which is just what you want as it means 3 of our back 4 know that there will be someone just waiting to take their place and keep it.

All who rightly got a lot of flack from the fans.
Yup. Unlike Tevez who's achieved godlike status there.
