I'm wondering if we'll see an improvement from Meyler (and Irvine and Larsson) once the WC play off matches are over?
Can they really have been 100% committed knowing that these games were coming up?
Just a thought.

An interesting proposition Driff, to which I could give great consideration........

Nah, fuck it, they're shite.

Cue Nash with "cause or symptom"

I don't disagree. Although 'shite' is a tad harsh.
I said weeks ago that, as much as I like him, if we're depending on Meyler as our midfield kingpin then we are fucked. And so it is proving. Useful player to have in the squad, but .....

Larsson, released by a relegated club, who obviously saw no place for him in a championship squad, never mind starting eleven.

Irvine, given the freedom of the pitch while nine other outfield players ran their guts out. Scores a worldly against us and someone decided he would do it every week for us. Only I can't decide if the ink on the agents paperwork had dried before he got sent off in the same game.

Aaaahhhhh Meyler. Much has been said pro and con, but, yes, IH he is to be our midfield maestro we are fucked.

Fuckin shite would be harsh. Shite is very much a must do better.

When are Mason and Evandro due back? Would they make a difference, do we think?

They may be an upgrade on the likes of Henrikson, Irvine and Larsson, but essentially no, they will make very little difference. Because a) they aren't defenders and b) they aren't going to win us the midfield. We will simply be overloaded with a glut of similar-ish sort of players, rather than ones we really need in key positions to turn us into a decent side.

..... edit ..... that's assuming that they ever do actually come back ... which looks ever more unlikely?

Mason? Did nothing much for Phelan, yet looked like the money paid for him playing for Silva. Is Slutsky a Phelan or Silva? Or would the insurance money suit all concerned?

Evandro is another, to be kind, less than mobile midfielder.

They would bring yet more competition for a start in midfield, not much to get enthusiastic about.

He wasn't released, he rejected a new deal at Sunderland.

Evandro's back in training and is expected to make the bench against Ipswich, I doubt we'll see Mason at all this season (if ever).

Meyler's suspended for their game and he only does committed anyway.

It needs new owners and a new manager, period.

Slutsky looking like Bilic now, West Ham looking like City, flapping and with a bizarre view on the clubs worth. Gold and
Sullivan want £650m for the club, that doesn't own a ground. I'll have two then

I too doubt Mason will play again. Who can blame him. Evandro will be keen to show his skills to jump in .Jan.

The lack of contract negotiations will piss off a few.

They've got a rock-solid 99 year commercial lease where they pay a pittance for ground upkeep and which varies depending on their league position and which they only pay for the 10 months that they're using the stadium. They couldn't have got a better deal.

I'd say that they were far better off than having their own ground, where upkeep would run to well over ten times the amount that they're actually paying.

Another club whose problems run far deeper than the manager.

It's not a football stadium.

Once the novelty has worn off it will be a half full library. The club will die due to the lofty and unattainable "vision" of the porn twins and a Sugarbabe.

West Ham London. Nice.

Arse of arse called it akin to winning the lottery, and is more commonly referred to as "the deal of the century".

For contributing £15m to the conversion costs of £272m, West Ham now have the privileged use of a 60,000 seat stadium. (The total cost, including the conversion is £700m ish). The annual rental is £2.5m, for which they receive a stadium, pitch and everything else to stage a football match. Winter is coming? No problem, tell the landlord to fire up the under soil heating. Night match, durky day? no problem, tell the landlord to flick the switch for the floodlight. Didn't come on? No worry tell the landlord to start the stand-by generator they had to provide under the terms of the agreement.Ah good, light at last to put up the landlord provided nets and stick the cornrer flags, similarly provided, in the defrosted ground.

Turn up for work monday morning and gloat in the fact you are only paying commercial rates on the offices, retail spaces etc used every day, and not paying the full commercial rate on a six days a week empty stadium. Oh yea, and have the rent halved in the case of relegation.

The full agreement runs to 207 pages. It was finally released on instruction of a tribunal following a vigorously challenged freedom of Information request.

Anybody else think signgate, gate-gate, every other gate, is someone trying to nudge Hull city council into cancelling the lease. A lease that has debts of £13.1m. I know which agrrangement I would prefer as owner of Hull city.
