Cheers - I think I can wait until MOTD when I get home (assuming we win wink )

Excellent, does this mean I can do the same to Ben's Arnie shirt as we did to Payets? ( Any excuse to show it again)

We all remember how we felt when “l‘affaire Payet” rumbled on to its inevitable conclusion, but I remember the unkind words of my Gooner son when Payet made it obvious that he wanted out.
We have a strong family connection with France, and Gooner son often visits my cousins at Vienne, Isère, near St. Étienne.
When Dimitri started acting up, my kid said, “I’m surprised that you held on to him as long as you did, he’s way out of your league.”
I asked him to explain, and he said that he’d gone to a game between St. Étienne and Lyon once when he was there, these games were called “Derby Rhône-Alpes”, when Payet played for St. Étienne.
He said that Payet scored the only goal of the game, from a free kick.
He said that when Payet signed for us, he was worried that would happen when Payet came up against Arsenal.

Do we know if Arnoutovic is going to play tomorrow ?

FF time & the goons look very poor at the back.

Not sure I’d play Arnie tomorrow. His mind will be elsewhere.

Where China? That's where washed-up old players go to get a few more pounds isn't it. Idiot if he goes there whatever the offer.

Couldn’t agree more but there’s something going on possibly just in his mind.

A move to China makes me think of the 'big in Japan' jibe about washed up rock bands in the seventies and eighties - a la Spinal Tap.

Something tells me that even considering a move to China at this stage tells us something of his own presentiments about his fitness and powers over the next few years of Premiership level play. Get out while the money is still good, etc. To me he has seemed to be holding back a little in recent games, as if carrying an injury. Who knows how bad it may really be.

Don't think we've much choice but to play him at some stage - find out at 11:00.

I'll take him coming on, scoring the winner & promptly being chinned by Nobes biggrin

COYI!!!

There’s certainly more to this China thing than meets the eye .

Well, after 38 minutes I’ve just watched some of the finest football I’ve seen from a West Ham side in years and years.
Win lose or draw, I honestly don’t care when I’m watching us play like this .

Good, good stuff. Pity the Anderson chance was a hair wide.

Excellent finish by Rice, his first goal, you can see what that means to him at 19 !

Rice , Rice baby.

Looks a player doesn't he .

We saw everything that's good & bad about the modern game at West ham this afternoon .

Rice showing the absolute joy of a young man full of passion , pride sheer elation & Arnoutovic looking like he's sulking like a spoilt child that is not getting his own way.

Nasri looked ok too.


Looking up fellas.

Indeed, funny how he's gone from kissing the badge to sulking like a brat.

Enjoyed that. Well played & cracking finish from Rice - who was superb again.
