If you enjoy footie, try to get a glimpse of De Bruyne at the moment.  There are some bits on Match of the Day on iplayer.  He is playing out of his skin, and also looks in a controlled rage.  No idea what that's about.  I've been watching footables for 60 years, and this is the cream.  Whether he can sustain it, dunno.
Was watching him this morning thinking that he reminded me a lot of Martin Peters. Every time he gets the ball it looks like a goal is possible.

He usually plays very well, but right now he is out of sight, Cruyff-like.  I'm curious if he can sustain it.

Given most teams will be trying to mark him in particular, he seems to find so much space.

Another AFTV meltdown. If anyone here hasn't ever seen it go to YouTube. Funny as hell! Toxic. No wonder Arsenal fans are starting to turn against them.0

Should have done it over a month ago.

That's a bit of a bounce

Yeah. Yes Bournemouth are bang out of form but so were we going unto this game. Lots of positives to take from that game. Need to keep on going but we already look like we have more purpose about us.

Saturday's game against Everton should be interesting. A protest has been planned for before the game by Hammers United. You can sense a storm is brewing, just like before the Burnley game a couple of seasons ago.

There are a couple of other West Ham fans here I think? Please join Hammers United. It doesn't cost anything.

Just dropping in to ask: why is Wayne Rooney playing football for Derby? It can't be that he is short of money, can it?!!  What has he beendoing in recent years?

No, I'm not particularly interested :) but have heard him referred to on Five Live recently and well, you know that saying, curiosity killed the cat!

I think it is his first step towards moving into management. I believe his current position is Player/Coach as well as being Captain.

Ticket, flights and hotel sorted for West Ham v Southampton on the 29th. Second game of the season for me. Big protest against the owners before the game, of which I will be a part. #GSBOUT!

West Ham really gave their all tonight but Liverpool are just unstoppable. 79 points out of a possible 81 this season is just bonkers. Tonight they matched the record of consecutive wins in the top flight, a record they can beat at Watford on Saturday. As a current Watford fan and childhood Liverpool fan I'm a tad conflicted. Best result would be Liverpool win but Watford still avoid the drop!

Typical West Ham. Show the most fight they have all season then arguably our best player this and last season gifts our opponents the win. Still, if we show the same fight for the rest of the season there's hope we can avoid the drop.
