On Saturday morning I was unexpectedly given 4 free tickets in the away end for this so have been able to treat my fellow London red friends to a night out. One of them works for a client so beers, curry and taxis are all going on expenses. Happy days though no doubt the Gods will look down on our good fortune and make it a shit game. If we lose it’s all my fault.
think of the VAR, mate :\

"it's all gone" innit

Is someone gonna find the key to those floodgates this time around? I want a Leicester repeat, minimum. 4 for King Mo with a Suarez-esque swan dive right in front of Moyes while waving four fingers at him. Fudging Scammers, Antonio seems to play out of his skin against us, i hope he and they lie down and give up before half time.

This Week - Cor blimey Guvner - Knees up Mother Brown - It's West Haaaaam.


A bit under the weather unfortunately - hopefully not coronavirus - so no tour guide of Stratford. Apologies.

However I did find these two public school educated vegans, coming down after a two-week juice cleanse, giving their thoughts and analysis on getting knocked out of the Europa league play offs by Romanian heavyweights Astra Goo Goo in 2017.

Late Jan early Feb is our dodgy spot over the past few years, so it's going to be tricky against a determined Moyes defense...

So I reckon only 5-0 with minimino hatrick in the first half

This is one of those fixtures when the opposition raises their game against us. A team that has been absolute garbage for most of the season, seems to put in an extra 20 per cent of effort when they know the reds are in town. I guarantee, if West Ham were playing against Watford, Burnley or Norwich tonight, they would be absolute shite as usual and lose the game. Add to this phenomenon, the Moyes hatred of LFC and this could be a bit tricky, if we’re not on our game.
Let’s have a professional performance, dominate the midfield and take what chances come our way and we should be ok.

I had to work down there years ago (mid 90s) and that part of the world is (or at least was) an absolute toilet. I noticed that I was constantly asked the time by local kids and mentioned it in passing to one of the people I was working with.

"It's 'cos your wearing a suit, init."

I queried as to why my sartorial choices might make me a candidate for the speaking clock.

"Your wearing a suit so they ask the time. If you've gotta Rolex it's a cosh over yer noggins and they take the watch."

How terribly charming. Never have I been so grateful for my cheap, reliable Casio.

This was also where I first encountered the full spectacle of the cockney glory-hunting Man United fan. Conversation got around to football and whilst most of the office supported the likes of Arsenal or Spuds (or had some attachment to another team through birth or family connections) this prat had apparently previously supported Arsenal, Leeds and even us and was simply latching on to whoever was likely to win that week. I'm sorry but one should suffer for their art.

I did come across one West Ham fan but he just seemed obsessed with the Second World War. I think he was rather disappointed that the Nazis lost.

When I was next down there I stayed at a pub in Leytonstone. The landlord's son took me down to an Orient match which was a bloody good night out - really friendly decent bunch of fans.

Anyway. West Ham is a shite hole. Smash them!

I agree with most people in here that I would start Jones.

Alisson
TAA Gomez vDijk Robertson
Chamberlain Henderson Wijnaldum
Salah Firmino Jones​
OK this needs a vote surely, Fabinho, AOC, Minamino, Origi, Jones, Keita, Lallana? any other? for the 2 spots up for grabs 2 votes each perhaps?
Fans Vs Klopp ;) Klopp out! :unsure:
Just to clarify in the most part. :LOL:

Mrs Tosh was far from impressed when I told her about tonight's match! She says there is too much football! I think she misses me when I disappear to behold our mighty Red men - although she can always hear me and knows when all is well!!!

I wonder if Origi, Ox or maybe Curtis takes Mane's place? Origi was abysmal on Sunday, and needs to turn up if selected.

I would go with Ox myself, but JK knows best.

In Klopp we trust!!!
another clean sheet and at least three goals to our mighty Red men!!!

on a rather sad note I burnt my pancake - still ate it though!!!

PS should I wear my LFC pyjama's? Or should I wear my LFC jumper?
why don't they make LFC pipes?

My preference would be jimjams. (As long as you have LFC slippers to match).

Only just realised it's not on telly tonight - that's not happened in a while!
I'm watching it on Sky Deutschland. If they are true to form it won't be on for me either!

In fairness they haven't messed up in a major way since the Bayern-BVB fiasco.

They are missing a trick with these, though. It's actively encouraging people to seek out illegal streams. Twitter* seems to be full of them when the matches are on.

* Other sources of illegal media / hate speech are available.
