He would be an ideal replacement for the aging Antonio although i am not sure the new coach will not just lump it up top like Moyes did.

You watch the bugger score against us on opening day  >:(

Lopetegui likes to play a pressing 4-3-3, so his off the ball work is going to need to improve. When he is in the mood to close down defenders, he's actually pretty good at it. Its just a matter of, does he want to do it?

I have actually heard from some journalists on a podcast that his style is actually not that far off Moyes and that he is quite negative, they're even talking about it on West Ham sites:

'However, some fans have said that Moyes and Lopetegui’s playing styles are similar and have even questioned why club chiefs would appoint this type of manager.

His appetite for a more progressive style of play everyone talks about was more apparent in his brief spells in a managerial or coaching role in Spain at Sevilla and less apparent during his six-month tenure in the Premier League at Wolverhampton Wanderers.'

Let's hope poor ol' West Ham don't get the Wolves version*.

*fingers crossed behind my back.

If the rumours are right then the plan would be to use the profits to buy Max Beier. If that's right then I'd be ok with him going because we'd be getting someone with just as much potential but a little less crazy.

With us going for Philogene, I wondered whether would be Rogers would be viewed as Ollie's understudy, whilst still being an option on the left.

More likely to be Taylor Swift's, Adele's would be 'I wanted him to stay, but I wish him all the best'.

Fabrizio just said he thinks the deal between Chelsea and Villa for Duran will be done. Working on finer details of the deal.

I said to my mates last season that I think he’s being groomed to take over as CF eventually…

Read a couple of reports that Sullivan is teying to save a fiver by saying that £35M is too much for Duran & they want a more appearance based transfer fee.

Jog the fuck on, I say.

If you don't have the funds to shop at Harrods, then fuck off back to Poundland...

He should ask the council to fund it.

Can’t they just sell a part of something own back to themselves for an inflated fee? Maybe a a few chairs in the cafeteria for £5m?

Isn't Dúran the c*** for giving them the glad-eye all year and not being happy with the terms on offer?
