    That’s better Ed. No idea what the other gobblygook was about. 😉 In fairness, this guy has been pretty confident Rafa would stay from the word go, so he’s consistent at least.

    The longer this drags on, the more I think Charnleys managed to worm his way in and balls the whole think up

    As cretins go, he’s a total diamond, probably ranked amoungst the top cretins around today and no doubt has a room full of “Cretin of The Year” awards, I just wish he was a cretin elsewhere

    If it wasn’t complex it would have been signed and sealed a few days ago Shadow Shearer.

    Fair play to him for wanting everything in writing, less chance of them shafting him a few months down the line.

    Benitez asked for 2 weeks. Let’s give him 2 weeks before blaming charnl.
    If this goes on for longer than 2 weeks, then I will fear charnley has balls the whole deal up aswel
    & if he does, surely he’s got to be sacked.

    Offkey, that is sad for a so called striker. Cheer yourself up by going back a couple of pages and follow the link i posted. You get all 20 of Arma’s goals in the first video, then further down there’s a video of a goal he scored in a training match. Mouthwatering for next season! 😉

    As long as there is the slightest chance of Charnley getting his slimy little fingers involved I’m going to be worried. Because if there is one person who could screw this up, it is our resident cretin. Not to mention if Ashley said it was a beautiful sunny day I’d go and ask McClaren to borrow his brolly.

    That’s what years of their BS have done to be I’m afraid

    The stats on Cisse tell you more about the lack of chances created than they do about Cisse himself

    Maybe a chances created stat as a team rather than an individual as that’s been problem all season creating goal scoring opportunities.

    I drove past the training ground this morning and there is the beginning of building work right in front of the existing building.

    It’s not obvious what is happening they have just scraped the top two feet of the grass and levelled it.

    Anyone know if this is owned by the club, it’s literally between Witley Rd and the training ground.

    Has anyone seen this? Its about a West Ham amateur team that gets an opportunity to be coached by some of the west ham staff over a period of time and then play a game at Upton park. Its really interesting for those interested in the coaching side of football .

    This is the episode 5 link. Slaven Bilic gives the team a team talk

    When we finished 5th. Cisse hit 13 goals in 14 games. BUT . . . He had the services of Ben arfa & cabaye. All he had to do was finish.
    This season is a much different story.

    Takes two to tango.

    STs must get into position for crosses, make smart well-timed runs, gamble and get shots off early either by taking it first time or with a good first touch. Do all those more often and you’ll score more goals.

    Bobby nah it’s going to be a sandpit for charnley. Keeps him out of the way of when rafa is negotiating transfers and contracts. Very clever thinking by Rafa me thinks

    Shadow-Shearer

    He was also still playing in the style that was so successful for him at Freiburg. Being Pardewed was a real thing, it’s not just attributable to Pardew though, any manager that starts meddling with a player’s natural style, movement and tendencies can do it. Then move them out of position, in Cisse’s case the RW to appease Ba, then you’ve took it to another level and also there’s a good chance you’ve demoralised a player and knocked their confidence, no matter how many soundbites they come out with about playing anywhere for the team.

    Looks like Pardew is getting a new deal off the back reaching a final, think the chairman must have overlooked the run of form leading towards the end of the season.

    Your bang on mate. The whole palace team is starting to be pardewed. From 5th place early in the season, to 5 bottom at end.

    & he messed up cisse.

    Arma had a flying start at Cov but once other loan players had been recalled the goals dried up , that and teams working him out. He scored 1 goal in last 20 games !!
    Call it lack of service or whatever you want but think he’ll struggle to get into double figures in championship – hope I’m wrong as we already have 3 strikers who can barely score in Mitro, Cisse and Perez

    personally I don’t care about palace or Pardew , as he’s said himself – he did the job to the best of his ability … he was a bit of a tw@t but such is life – met him while out in London one night , he was alright although he tried to pull some girl by saying he was a prem manager … she was like who the f@@@ is the old guy

    I’ve just had a thought, could Rafa Benitez be the new Sir Bobby Robson, look at the Initals.

    Turn BR into RB, this could the new beginning, Detective WelshGeordie must be on to something there.

    I’m on the case.

    It’s why I bang on about Perez being a poacher and nothing else, if he’s continued to be played wide or deep, he won’t ever fulfil his potential. All his best work is done in and just outside the box. He gambles, anticipates and gets in front of defenders, takes his shots early. When has he ever jinked past a few players and threaded a through ball, or teared down the wing and supplied a great cross, or cut inside and curl one into the far corner? He hasn’t, yet because he’s a willing type that won’t rock the boat, he gets stuck in positions to play for the team, to the detriment of him and the team.

    Next season he need to play as a ST.
