West Ham United Message Board
The countdown's ticking away Hammers and I've got to say that Pool's players seem full of confidence judging by the local papers etc.
What's going on down there, why are your players looking to move out when you've got a prospective dream manager in Gionfranca. (Never understand this game--Jack Charlton)
West Ham are relatively safe mid table and that worries me a bit because you'll be going for it tomorrow. Nevertheless, compact ground, passionate crowd look at Burnley's performance.
No goals in the first 30 then for me it's Pools 2-1. If the Hammers score early on then anything can happen. Whatever the result hope it's a great game and if you guys take it then crack on and win the cup.
This guy is desperate. He hasn't bothered to put a posting on the Hammer's board for at least 5 months so that's how much interest he's got in you guys. I'm going back to September 08 now trying to find him, I got bored looking after that.
So why is he back on now? It's obvious, I'll tell you why he's back and Rolf Harris 4 has already said why. He's a glory hunter, the only reason he's on here now is because he's trying to shunt me off because he's seen a bit of banter between me and you guys.
The stars came out because he was trying to fog you guys off, look at the Chelsea board and his 5 stars to the guy who kissed his #$%$ yesterday after another spat.
At times he bores me stiff, if he doesn't like it then he can Eusabio off. (What a wonderful player he was) He tried the same thing on the Magpie's board way back.
Forget this piffle guys, there's a big game the weekend.
With respect from me-- Alan H.
I'll need to give the score a bit of thought depending on what team Chris Turner turns out. And I've got to say on the telly the weekend I was impressed by your team spirit, maybe that's because Bellamy wasn't around. A few of your guys seem to put themselves about so it will be close.
But it's our cup final and there'll be some real effort out there to secure the win.
Irons, you've got it right once, now it's my turn.
Hammers, the day is drawing closer and I do feel for your trepidation. But remember it's only a game of football and after a few weeks the pain of defeat will be well behind you.
While Pools eagerly wait for the big money earner, an away game with Man Utd. You guys can maybe look towards a european spot.
Hoping they're hanging well.
Pretty much even Steven in the league--mid table hovering.
Bullard's out and Bellamy's dummy's out (again) which evens things up.
I've got a feeling the Hammers won't go busting their balls tomorrow with a massive game coming up next week. So---I reckon Hammers 1 Fulham 0. Or maybe a 1-1 draw.
HARTLEPOOL 2 NORTHAMPTON 0
Bit of a warm up this. Joel Porter's going out with a bang before he goes home to Australia at the end of the season.
Many of the 1st team guys were out tonight. As Porter walked off he said to one of our fans--" Bellamy is in their team next week, yeah? "
Our guy nodded and Porter said--" Brilliant, lets go for it."
Razor, because the Hammers won't talk to me because Soppy prised me out of their hearts (the bounder) will you tell them this---
It's rather confusing the Hammers situation, it would appear to me that you don't need to sell players or am I wrong?
But keep Bellamy (horrible bloke, Shearer loves him). Because Pools are formulating a plan to get him sent off by winding him up in his favourite language--bad.
I've got a question to put to you Razor by the way, when the time's right regarding Sheff Utd and the Hartlepool connection.
Just the man Tilton. Now you are a well respected guy who knows what he's talking about and has got the badges to verify the fact. And by the way I suppose you're putting (the old days) down to me no doubt.
But listen, and these aren't my words. They were in a local paper tonight. ITV are showing the game Hartlepools against the unpredictable Hammers on the 24th at 12-40pm kick off time live.
I'm not sure where you're based at, but if you are amongst the Hammers and not coming up. Gather as many as you can in the pub around you because it's less embarrassing if grown men all cry together.
Now look here nick w and Zambezi, who should have more sense coming from Sunderland. There's the pair of you and Guru who lives in Alaska and asks why do I come here, because he supports the Hammers from there.
Bit worried about you two, you seem a bit too close, and a very strange sense of humour going on. I'll have to consult Soppy #$%$ for some advice.
Right Zambezi, in the schoolboy county side which I played in was Kieth Storey from your place, and as you know, Kendall, Coates, Spraggon and others. The best guy I ever saw at Roker Park was slim Jim Baxter when he was almost finished, with the classy Stan Anderson from Horden Colliery not far behind.
I was talking to Len Ashurst former Pools manager at a do the other night. He was on £28 a week at Sunderland but took £25 a week to become a manager at Pools. And what a gent, articulate and interesting---get my drift?
And before one of you comes out with it, no I'm not dead yet.
Keep it real, boys--all good stuff.
