Hendo Premier League to start 12th September and finish on 23rd May, obviously Rona depending.


Looks like the EFL will start on the same day but finish a couple of weeks earlier.

23rd May is only 19 days before the Euros start, I assume the national teams don't get to insist on having players for 4 weeks as usual?

Winston Biscuit Grady Diangana going back to West Ham from his impressive loan spell at West Brom too

But it's West Ham, screwing things up is what they do best!


Yeah, bit of a strange club, really don’t think the move to the Olympic Stadium has worked

Could have really pushed on after finishing a couple of points off a Champions League spot but the stadium move, along with buying dross like Feghouli, Zaza, Tore and Fernandes really didn’t help

Re Diangana, think he’s a decent little player in a position West Ham are lacking. I’m generally in the minority here but I really don’t rate Felipe Anderson at all

Players who deliberately cough at opponents or referees can be shown red or yellow cards under new FA guidelines issued amid the coronavirus pandemic.


Seems like a sensible move, although I doubt there would be anyone quite so stupid to do this. If there was, I'd put my money on Luis Suarez.

Top 3 coughers would be:

Craig Bellamy
Joey Barton
Luis Suarez

Strikes me that the PL stores up its own problems when it comes to fixture congestion. Yes, I know, internationals. But there are just 10 PL fixtures scheduled for Sep to Nov, and then a further 11 in Dec and Jan. Nuts!

West Ham got an incredibly tough start to the season!

6 of the top 8 from last season in their first 7 games

figure out a better tactic against a high press team

Mr John Portsmouth Football Club Westwood who's actually a bald headed antiquarian book seller as well as professional nobhead.

I do a lot of work with ‘Skates’ in their manor (but please, don’t hold that against me)...they just refer to him as ‘Westwood’

A little bit :roll: revered (or not) like our chappie ‘Blackie’

Have heard a few tales about Westwood....apparently a very well educated and clever fellah ??
Works well for him, I guess....gets away with murder...and free access pretty much wherever he goes.

Who’s the real nobheads ?

I'm sure that's true. Nothing against him but his superfandon is all a bit cartoonish and feels contrived.

Sky sports and their YouTube channels already creaming themselves at Leeds content. No fewer then 4 videos of Leeds rel8d stuff on there. This is going to be tedious as oxf*rd.
