Linked with Patrice Evra
Too young. Who was at United before him? Heinze?
In a Europa League tie in November, Patrice Evra was sent off before the game had even started for kicking one of his own fans in the head. He was subsequently banned from all UEFA competitions until June 2018.
As European campaigns go though, it's still more successful than anything West Ham have managed this century.
Kid is now 18 looks and sounds about 14. Is actually running the woman’s team lol and heir to the throne
Worth over a billion pounds? Really or we talking about a billion pounds of chicken shit?
Fits in with their transfer policy from over the summer. It seems like their method of recruitment is to scour FM2006 or something.
I'll expect to see bids for Gelson , Riquelme, and Denilson in the summer
I cannot wait for the frenzy in kumb when they announce in the summer that they have secured the services of Ronaldo for a PL record fee.

Its a shrewd move, Evra won't be able to attack any fans at the OS...no-ones doing karate kicks after running that far.
Love that man.
Zabaletta at RB, Evra at LB.....comedy gold !!
You'd think at some stage they'd rethink their recruitment (not in the way which was recently in the press) - they've done this a lot in recent years, signing older, expensive (wages), past it players who are unlikely to play a lot of games due to age and fitness.
They seem to supplement strategy A by overpaying for average players on the whole as a strategy B - not saying they've all been complete shite but they buy a lot of players for the handful which come good for them.
Going back to when we turned a corner under Jol, there was a clear strategy in my opinion to invest smaller fees in young, predominantly British players and build a squad capable of developing and growing. They weren't all hits but we got a bit back on some of the resale over the years and lost relatively little in terms of £££ in that time. When players came good they contributed massively to our growth and eventually could be sold for big money.
It just baffles me how WH continue to operate, year after year, manager after manager, with no defined strategy for moving forward.
Agree and long may it continue .
A comprehensive article of why we like to laugh at West Ham. Worth a read (chuckle):
Long may it continue
Let's hope it continues and they get regulated which would make it even more funny.
Just seen they have Evra on a free till Jun 2018 OMFG.
Oh my days, the line about how crap their strikers have been and how cringe is the video of Evra blowing bubbles, they really are the gift that keeps giving
I laughed loud enough to get weird looks at work several times during that piece. It's so good.
