Malaga schooling us here.

Better to get it out of the way and sort out the problems. Winning something, even a pre season tournament would have been nice though!

^ Also Jenkinson was rubbish and then pulled a hamstring. Welcome to West Ham Carl.

I had this idea back in 2006 for the business plan I had to do as my final year project in college, but opted for another idea in the end as there were too many legalisties to research. Suprised it has taken so long for it to be implemented.

I often wondered why clubs don't employ someone to collect all the footage they can get so the manager could just say, "here, give me all the clips you can find of the oppositions right full back from the last several games" so they could try find some habit the player has that could be exploited.

If it does become available - then it'll be like the Netflix of football. Champ Man will never be the same again.

Fucked if i'm paying 10 grand for it though.

Shame he'd been pretty good in pre-season for us. Then again he was trying not to be sent to West Ham at the time.

it was, jesse lingards was a good finish too

promising few games... good results, a lot of players performing well etc

great confidence boost beating liverpool too

too early to be getting our hopes up and they are still short a handful of players, but definitely heading in the right direction

Thought this game was on at 1am tonight/tomorrow morning... not that i'd have said up for it.

Fuck it, i'm well optimistic going into this season. looking forward to it big time now.

4 goals conceded all tour as well it think. 3 penalties and a wonder goal. how bad.

watched the first half hour last night. Sterling made absolute shite of Jones and Smalling. they looked worried anytime he was near them. Plus, Liverpool were pressing the back 3 quite a bit on the ball and they were very sloppy at times. De Gea is obviously on orders not to kick it long, which is nice to see

Sterling tore the back 3 apart for the first half. Really hope we don't plan on relying on them for the season. Granted not all players will be as electric as Sterling but Jones always has a penalty in him.

Bayern bid for Reina accepted

Hope he doesn't go there, he'll never get a game. Too young to be basically retiring

Anyone else think it's crazy madrid are being linked with Cech, considering they have Navas, Lopez & Casillas

he can run fast in a straight line, if that floats your boat. Not sure if he has any other qualities
