    Seems harsh. He's hardly banging a drum, he was asked a question and answered it honestly. I'm sure if he'dfollowed the request to 'go elsewhere' he'd be accused of being arrogant. He had no explanation for what happened and consequently couldn't identify at that time how to explain what he could have done, his honesty is better than the usual bollocks managers trot out in that situation. Anyway, your team won and won well, don't be angry. Be a good winner.

    Seem to be refreshingly honest: “If you expect an explanation I probably have to disappoint you. An explanation would mean things are logical or tactical or at least in moments you see where a game goes to the other side but none of this happened. “Everything felt perfect for a long time and I was very proud what I saw from my team, but things like this happen in soccer. “Ultimately we were hit by a late sucker punch from the opposition. Shit happens.”

    I bet Phil Thompson has spontaneously combusted, after years of going on about famous European nights at Anfield that never existed/materialised to finally get one has probably sent him to another dimension.

    I think the L is for Lost

    Probably, but I'm not sure how that helps the fan's situation.

    True, hard to believe but there must be posters here who don't remember the celebrity match before the Cup Final.

    I can't believe we all overlooked this zinger.

    It was converted at considerable taxpayer cost for multi-use, but I think that was before the Rugby WC. So unless they didn't use some of the features (the main one being moving the stands over the athletics track and closer to the pitch) I'd imagine it will be pretty much the same for West Ham as it was at the Rugby WC.
  9. Football 2015/16

    Yes, but it was made a permanent decision in order to maximise use (and claw back cost) of the new stadium. I don't doubt that the clubs themselves also get some benefit. Or at very least the need forrevenue killed the possibility of it ever going back to the old way.

    What do you think they did before everything was at Wembley? They will still have nominated available stadiums, but they won't use them unless they absolutely have to due to smaller capacities. Anyway the point here is not that it should be moved from Wembley, that it should never have been at Wembley in the first place.

    Nah, for football it's not a great stadium.
  12. Football 2015/16

    Well yes all in it was a terrible use of taxpayer money, but West Ham can't be blamed for that. It'sgalling compared to what the club did eventually pay, but again expecting a football club to voluntarily pay more than they have to is unrealistic. And you may has misread the bit about the stadium.
  13. Football 2015/16

    I'm not convinced the taxpayer has done particularly well out of it, but yes the fans will suffer. It's not a great stadium with crummy public transport access and uninspiring local facilities.

    The logical alternative is a neutral venue in the North, although the days of logic trumping income for the FA are long gone.

    I guess Upton Park wasn't rocking as hard as it could have been last night, although as an Everton fan it was the preferred result. Very interested in seeing the Olympic Stadium deal get published, I suspect West ham have got one hell of a bargain there.
