    Yeah, their fans are. But, their manager, chairmen and some players are horrible.

    They are indeed involved in the porn industry... Which fits as Brady does too (even though she doesnt)

    Well, Leicester demonstrates spending money doesn't necessarily make a good team. West Ham looked for quick solutions to get back to the premiership, and I'll be shocked if it doesn't come back to haunt them eventually.

    Yep, that is definetly not the way to do things now. Need to be smart in the market and get some good, cheap deals and have faith in the players you have. West Ham are doing the opposite.

    Same as what QPR have done. I expect them to be midtable for a few years before the whole thing unravels and they go back down within five years.

    £65K per week, £65k per ****ing week!!!!! For what? What has he done to justify that type of money? Will he carrying home the Ballon D'Or and Euro championship trophy after destroying all in front of him in the next 12 months?

    He might well have potential, but that amount of cash is stupid and the easiest way to cause dressing room unrest. How much is the average player in their squad on with similar PL experience? Is Freddy Shepherd negotiating contracts for them?

    Paying young players like Morrison that amount of cash is what ruins them. They think they have made it, spend their cash on god knows what and don't perform on the pitch.

    He seems to have been all about this money this month. Man Utd wouldn't give him as much as he wanted, we probably wouldn't and now West Ham are giving him stupid money.

    When you're on the verge of falling on your faces, as much as its tempting to bring in experienced players, if you bring in too many near the end of their careers you'll pay for it in time

    At first I thought he was just impatient to get near the first-team of a squad (fair enough to players like Sinclair who move on for the sake of playing time and opportunities), you're right though, it's obvious now it was about the cash.

    If it was just about the cash, then we did well not to sign him. We really didn't need Ranger V2.0, potential but to much swagger and ego to ever fulfil it!!

    Although Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, Spurs all pay top whack on wages, they appear to do it in a structered way. We appear to be following the same approach for the last few seasons. Any coincidence that team morale generally doesn't appear to be an issue at most of these clubs...unlike Chelsea, City!

    65k for someone who has yet to play a senior game of football <yikes>

    luckily enough for West Ham I think they will just scrape promotion and save them from the armageddon such spending for a c,ship club would bring

    Really hope they fall flat on their arses.

    Should have offloaded a few when they got some in. Players like Piquionne and Carew won't get in their team and that will result in a dressing room of unrest.

    People seem to be forgetting its only 65k/w if they get promoted.. However its deffo too big a deal to give someone like him even when they are still in the CCC as he must still be on good wages now.

    West Ham are still ****ed if they dont go straight back up to the PL, taking a huge gamble but I suppose we did that too - keeping Colo, Nolan, Smith etc.
