Well, seems like there is a real likelihood of no relegation at all this season...

If you are cooped up inside, I have enjoyed spending 20 mins on this https://youtu.be/sCcZ-uwXem0
I’ll be happy to forget this season. In fact let’s forget 2020 and fast forward to next year.

Me too, but even if it does continue and we do end up going down like we deserve I'll still be at every game I can get to wherever we end up. Can't believe how much things ramped up in the last few weeks, makes the moans about tactics and lack of management seem so petty now haha! My brother in law text me from the pub in Gothenburg on Saturday saying he was having a top arvo, hope we can get back to that soon!

Late yesterday apparently - it'd been unusually quiet on the bad-news WH front recently so it was only a matter of time. Doubt that those encouraged to invest will see their money again.

5-4 game vs Bradford City from 1999/00 season being streamed via YouTube later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_A91q9ifLk

Ah the classic Lampard Di Canio handbags over the penalty!

Quite a few games are being put up in their entirety at the moment on YT - saw the Noble testimonial game appear the other day all 2 1/2 hours long video if it!

Yep, ref'd as the Intro to his bio, which as I'm at home I could quickly grab:



Also appears that I saved a few Di Canio pieces that I'd forgotten about:

I had a Prog signed by Eggert Magnussen - fortunately he used a felt tip & his sig lasted about as long as his tenure (can't remember the game).

Video circulating on FB of PDC asking for people to respect social distancing whilst wearing a retro west ham shirt and then proceeds to do keepy uppies whilst singing Bubbles. Legend. Wish I knew how to save it down and share it!

I'm not aware because I've not been following football but are West Ham one of the 5 Premier clubs who have furloughed staff?

I don't think so (yet), haven't heard the Club mentioned as having done so.

There was a Twitter session w/ Pablo Fornals a couple of days ago - looked like he was having a crack music

Fornals has the potential to become a top club player, he shows so much emotion on the pitch, love seeing his celebrations!

The PFA are being utter twunts in all this, saying that if players take a pay cut they pay less tax and it impacts the NHS. Disgraceful that they are attempting to justify their players salaries by some sort of weak minded sympathy vote pulling the NHS in. fk, every company should just keep their staff on across the country and pay them full salary then - utter bell ends.

Furloughing is for companies that genuinely cannot afford to pay their staff. If a club can afford to pay its players but not its cleaners, that is beyond a joke.
