Just looking at the potos of Bruce.  In all seriousness, has anyone done a study of weight:performance in terms of managers?  I can't see it's a good sign in an elite level manager if he cannae even control his own waistline?  X

Talking to a mate about Newcastle today at work. Neither of us could decide if:

 

A: Ashley really doesnt understand football.

B: He is just 1 of them people in life who loves to piss people off and hes doing it on a massive scale and is on a massive wind up.

C: Hes a greedy git.

D: He actually thinks hes doing well.

 

We went for A, B and C before going for lunch.

Newcastle sign Almiron and finally look like Ashley's turned a corner. 

 

Six months later, manager out, two best players out, nobody signed, Steve Bruce in. 

 

Spare a ****ing thought. Jesus.

Former Sheffield United manager Steve Bruce resigns from Sheffield Wednesday job as the former Sunderland manager gets ready to take over at Newcastle. Anyone would think the former Birmingham and Aston Villa manager didn't care much for footballing loyalty. ♂️#swfc

 

:)

That will become one of those quiz questions for another generation I think.

Good luck to the former Wigan, Hull and Crystal Palace manager.

I’d say if you asked him, there would definitely be an element of D there too. I think he sees the club as a business and is looking for his own bottom line. 

No doubt he’s a money hungry greedy guy, who doesn’t really understand football.

i don’t think he loves to piss people off, but I think he doesn’t really care about others opinions of him, he goes out makes a business decision and doesn’t give a flying fook about what others think of him.

West Ham getting haller for 45m. Great signing 

£45 m for a fella whose scored 13 and 9 in two Bundesliga seasons. Franfkurt played a blinder. 

 

To give that context Shinji scored 15 and 12 in his last two Bundesliga seasons with Mainz. For a crisp £7 million

 

Firmino with 16 and 7 in his last two Bundesliga seasons....£29 million.

It's not just the goals and assists for haller. He links the play for those around him and will suit the prem with his best years coming up.

 

Considering the players behind him will likely be fornals, yarmalenko and Anderson, I can see him fitting in very well. Probably overpriced, but that seems to be the market this year.

When you look at how much it would cost for someone like Callum Wilson, reported to be close to £60m then £45m on Haller is decent business from West Ham imo.

 

They look to be putting together a very decent side, if everything clicks they could be the team to watch this season.

Doesn't matter, West Ham could sign Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar and they'd turn to inconsistent shit the second they pull on a Hammers shirt.

Great financial deal for Frankfurt, hope they invest wisely up front - coupled with the departure of Jovic to Real, they now have serious dough to spend.

 

Need a new partner for Rebic now.

Yeah it's a fantastic price. He's twenty nine and a good player.

West Ham are like us on steroids in terms of the sheer bipolar nature of their fanbase and negative feeling spreading the moment there's a bad result. I still fully expect them to have a shaky start and end up with some melt in a flat cap using one of the corner-flags to joust with the linesman by mid-October. 

"It's the West Ham way", innit. :ph34r:

Did West Ham not finish level on points with you guys last season?  They look to have done some excellent business so far this window and bar Arnautovic who had downed tools anyway they've kept all their big players thus far, which should really improve them so can see them being a real threat this season.

Thought that Paciencia was fairly highly rated?
