    Anything less than a comprehensive 6-0 win for the Potterball Revolution and I’ll be disappointed. :whistle

    West Ham have spent well this summer and have recruited some decent players. Hopefully they haven’t quite clicked yet though and we can continue our great Prem record against them. Hoping to see a bit more pace from the start for this one, Murray & Groß played well but we were really lacking on the counter at Watford.

    Ryan
    Duffy - Dunk - Burn
    Montoya - Stephens - Propper - March
    Locadia - Groß
    Maupay

    Subs: Button, Webster, Bernardo, Mooy, Trossard, Andone, Murray.
    Looking forward to this. Haven’t got a season ticket anymore due to the club being incompetent bellends, but I’ll be there on Saturday. More excited for it than any other game in ages. Think both teams will score but reckon we’ll edge it.

    3-1 - Maupay, Duffy, Locadia

    1-2 :hopefully
    A winnable game for us but Glenn Murray is a c*** and will likely bag a hatrick

    Probably the same 18 and starting 11 as vs Watford meaning Alireza Jahanbakhsh not making the 18. Crazy to think an £18m player can't get into the squad.

    It’s not that crazy when you realise he’s utterly pony. Something I do think is crazy is that we’ve got somewhere in the region of £50m worth of players out on loan. What the actual ****! Mac Allister, Tau, Clarke, White, Gyokeres, Walton, Molumby, Mlakar, Hemed, Kayal, probably missed a few too.
    1-1. Intriguing to see if Watford was a one off.

    Sign of being a Premier league club or just the money wasted these days !

    1-1 I reckon btw.

    Good point. Knockeart Ostigard and Sanchez out on loan too.

    Crazy to think half the Championship has one of our players on loan. Wasn’t long ago we were loaning players from Charlton, Blackburn etc.

    Hemed isn’t on loan btw. Charlton tried to sign him permanently but apparently it was 35 seconds late so the FA have told them he can’t sign. Currently going through appeals allegedly. Bit of a shit situation for everyone.

    Knockaert, how the feck did I forget him? So realistically we probably have £60m-£70m out on loan. Madness.

    Yeah, I knew that about Hemed, not sure why I included him. This 35sec situation is appalling, I know rules are rules but let’s be adults about it.

    I wouldn’t mind if Trossard started but it would be a tad unfair to drop Locadia or Groß. Lol that we’ve got a £20m CB that can’t get on the pitch.

    First experience of VAR at a live game. Sure it was the right decision but my oh my does it kill the fun of celebrating. Seemed an age before it was announced.

    But playing well where we left off from Watford. WH looked bright for the first 15 but we’ve dominated since then, forcing them into time wasting. Long may it continue (other than VAR).

    Correct decision so no complaints but that sure does suck the life out of you. Always going to be half holding back in celebrating until confirmation on a screen. The best part of football is going absolutely mental when the ball hits the net, so much is being taken away. Will get used to it and forget in time I’m sure but it’s never going to be the same.

    Need to seriously cut the waiting time as well, two minutes with the ball on the centre spot is ludicrous.

    Good response after going behind but that's 2 points dropped on the balance of play and chances, albeit West Ham finished strongly.

    Pretty positive stuff on the whole.

    One look online and with the WH fans on the train says otherwise. Time wasting and diving against a ‘team like brighton’. Fantastic
