fevriul (Chelsea) says...

Outwitted ?? His tactical genius was to stop Chelsea scoring from both open and set plays? as opposed to what? Fair play they blocked all night and their keeper had a good one, that's football, West Ham are in a relegation battle , every point counts, but for West Hams point of view they are going to need performances like that for the rest of the season. Chelsea onn the other hand will have the chance to put things right at the eithad.

outwitted. is he having a laugh ? There was some skill (it wouldn't be fair to say Adrian didn't do well) but, there was a massive, huge pile of luck. If Chelsea had won 10-0 you would not have been surprised. That West Ham team are the 2nd worst team (relative to league Chelsea are in) I have seen at the Bridge in 25 years (Cardiff this season, were the worst !). If West Ham play like this, then there is no way on earth they will stay up. They will not be so lucky next time.

Some pretty silly comments from Jose, especially since Chelsea are no strangers to a safety first approach but Allardyce really is something isn't he? Just a shame that he's only managed to 'outwit' four teams out of twenty four so far in the league this year.

Nice to see Sam's knack for self-congratulation after any decent remains. Tactical genius that lad. I mean, it'd be better if they weren't in the bottom three, but I'm sure Hammers fans would agree it's not Sam's fault. Nothing is Sam's fault.

peeyugo (Arsenal) says...

Good show Sam; you don't have much respect from me, but seeing that there is at least one thing we both like, (seeing Chelsea players moaning and trying to intimidate the referee like the damn cheats they are, while the Special Ego is left frustrated and whining like an old pipe) I'll say again....Good show Sam

shockmaster (Liverpool) says...

It really is difficult to distinguish between the real Sam Allardyce and his parody account sometimes. At least he's the least abhorrent of the two managers this time though.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
