Spitting feathers never mind blowing bubbles..

Postby CTID Hants » Tue Nov 07, 2017 6:37 pm

I hope CM doesn't mind but I thought I'd take a peak at KUMB to see what the Hammers are thinking upon Gollums arrival, there's 31+ pages, below is just the first page with my favourite at the top....


Yesterday’s man joining a club moving backwards. Kind of makes sense.

Good luck, I feel sorry for anyone who has to work for 3

I am genuinely stunned, on multiple levels.

It goes from bad to worse!

So glad I retired the ST

He's going to have to get off to a flying start or there will be a lot of anger on the terraces.

I'll be as polite as I can

Mr Moyes, please take your incompetence elsewhere, you are not wanted here.

After all is said and done, he's our new manager and good luck to him.


Couldn't care less. **** him and **** them!

What a ****ing worm to jump straight into the job barely hours before Bilic was told to leave after weaseling his way in gobbing off on telly telling us all he's interested etc. He shouldn't have said a ****ing thing. Moyes Out

He might do alright. And I sincerely hope he does, as I don't want anyone to fail.
But at a moment when the club needs galvanising and supporters in particular needing to feel re-invigorated, this is what they went for?
If this doesn't work out then Moyes' reputation will be done. The board's reputation will be in the gutter. And fans will walk away. This is an astonishing gamble.


Prove us wrong David and get us to 17th place. Good luck - you’ll need it.

Said that Sunderland were in a relegation battle before a ball was kicked - turned out to be spot on.
Said that anyone he could bring in in January would not be the sort of players to get Sunderland out of the bottom three - again, spot on.
Said that Sunderland couldn't attract any decent players, essentially because they are Sunderland - three out of three there Dave.

To be fair the West Ham owners have yet again shown the world what a pair of dildos they are .

As soon as a manager comes out defending his track record then you know he's fucked, and Gollum hasn't even played a game yet!

Risk management on behalf of the owners, they don't give a shit about the club, just about the profit. Spend fuck all, move backwards and then bring another cheap manager on a short-term contract. All about lining their pockets, and we, as City fans, are well aware of that type of owner, but how lucky are we now to have somebody of substance.

It's really difficult to understand the thinking behind this appointment, so presumably there wasn't any.

May i dare to call it being aware of any potential Swalesness round the next corner?

4. "thumbs stalker often resulting in repetitive thumb strain"

Poor old West Ham, what the hell are they thinking by employing someone that has left his last 3 clubs in a worse state than when he took over .... and that's no mean feat in the case of Sunderland.
RIP WHUFC

Old 'Arry would've been a better appointment. And that really is scraping the barrell

I still find it a disgrace that failure in football counts for nothing and you can walk back into a high profile role without anyone batting an eyelid - fair enough if you didn't hit if off with your boss, but Moyes is a repeated failure.

I find it interesting to hear tales like the one below in the Gruniard about Graham Potter who seems to be achieving impressive things with Ostersund (maybe our Swedish posters could elaborate more on this) and boasts a Masters in Leadership and Emotional Intelligence:-

Moyes rewarded for his repeated failures. You know if this cunt rocks up at your club the shit is going to get shittier.

He's worked absolute wonders in Östersund with some very unorthodox ideas, both on and off the field. He's not the only one that should be praised for their success story, though. The chairman is somewhat of a visionary. He's the one who brought in Potter, and also came up with the transfer strategy to bring in talents who've failed elsewhere (often because of off the pitch reasons) and give them a second chance. But it's Potter who's worked with them daily, getting their confidence back by having them dance ballet and do theatre plays in front of a crowd, etc.

Östersund is a tiny place in the middle of nowhere. To appreciate what Potter has done getting them from tier 4 to leading their Europa League group, you have to imagine a small 4th tier Scottish side or perhaps doing the same. He certainly deserves a shot at a bigger club, imo.

wasnt aware of Potter's great acheivents. well done to him and certainly a far better shout for WHU that Bilic downwards Gollum ... if only poor WHU hadnt fall under porn greed... :(

as I side note, and despite being aware that Svennie isnt that popular either among Blues and in England, I was used in my youth to see wonders coming from Sweden, rather than the other way round.

Thanks Mr Nool - I sometimes take articles like that with a pinch of salt and you are right there are other conditions and people that are needed for it to be a success. That transfer strategy is interesting as well and you need the right person to help turn them around, which is probably where his academic background comes into things. The question would be could you parachute him into a top team, with all those egos and have the same effect? I doubt it and maybe you need to think of adopting a similar approach at a lower league club in the UK and see where it takes you?

I agree with you. A former top club in dire straights would probably be a good fit - like Sunderland, Blackburn or Bolton.
