  John McCormick writes: I get regular abuse banter from certain people who believe Anfield is a good value, top-class stadium. It isn’t, as I keep telling them, and now there’s proof. But first I must make mention of Huddersfield, whose fans were told – some nine or ten years ago, apparently – that any who […]

Whimsy(featured image)

John McCormick writes: It has been a strange day. First, an e-mail from Pete Sixsmith asking if I’d voted and including and article.

Malcolm Dawson writes………..if you believe the official figures, there were over 40,000 world weary souls at the Stadium of Light yesterday but that statistic includes all season card holders and by the number of pink seats visible, a good number of those had opted for another way of spending their Saturday. Pete Sixsmith wasn’t one […]

Moyes on the Boys v West Ham Utd: ‘we needed Khazri’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: post match, on radio five live, Fabio Borini hinted at changing-room issues. When asked to elaborate he talked about injuries but did nothing else to explain. Was something lost in translation? You might think not, given the way  David Moyes manages to suggest everything’s hunky-dory in his post-match missive: (more…)

The £5.53m joke: tell Crystal Palace, West Ham £40m couldn’t buy Defoe

Gizza job, Jermain. I'd be a great PA

Like most people, I have no idea what Jermain Defoe’s contract says about his right to leave Sunderland in the event of this or that bid being made.

Hutch’s one word player ratings following West Ham slip up

Jake: 'FFS'

Rob Hutchison thought this display was much better than last week’s dismal showing at Stoke but the net result is the same – nul points. After an hour of decent play, a few seconds of switch off in the 94th minute let the Hammers drive another nail in the Sunderland coffin. As Rob says ‘same […]
