Is the joke that you wouldn't be able to get a sponsor that good next year when you're in the championship? GOING DOWN.

Cant believe this shit, complaining about another club resting players. Who are you, Sheff United? At least Fulham replaced their rested players with eligible players.

It's truly pathetic as Fulham's team was barely weakened. All bar 2 or 3 are experienced regulars and you can always argue changes like that are tactical.

West Ham should have points docked for being so stupid. But that's what you get for being owned by two of the biggest schmucks in football.

It smells of revenge to me as Fulham are still sueing for 500k from the Tevez affair. It's understandable that they want a pound of flesh, but they should wait for a better moment, this is desperate.

It just shows how shit a club West Ham have no become, what are they hoping for?

If they were better then maybe they'd have won their crunch games against Bolton and Stoke but no, they'd rather complain about a side that is competing in Europe which is now easily safe in the league.

He's made a few mistakes recently. But he is still young though. He was bought for potential after all.

I agree he isn't particularly strong in the air but he is quite mobile and is a ball playing centre back. He can pass and run with the ball quite well for his age. What Rio was like before he started to hoof the ball all the time.

Given we are awful away from home and still created chances to equalize at Hull I don't think West Ham can really complain.

The Everton match had me going up and down, I was distraught after the 2nd Everton goal, but on Cloud 9 after Ilan's goal. West Ham seem to follow Nathanial Greene's adage "We fight, get beat, rise and fight again."

That's probably a bit overdramatic, after all - most teams do play again after being beaten...

West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold have been rocked to find out that only ONE senior player has a pay-cut written into his contract if the club goes down.

WHam are quite possibly the worst run club in the league.

It's curious - spend a fortune and not qualify for the CL and you're ruining football, driving prices up and making the sport money orientated.

Spend a fortune and squander it all on the likes of Kieron Dyer (and be a fashionable London club with lots of friends in the media) and you get virtually no criticism whatsoever.

Big shock Rolling Eyes

Feel a bit sorry for him as although they had a bad season, he had his hands tied somewhat with all the ownership problems and having to sell people like Collins on the eve of the season.

He did a good enough job in first year to be allowed a bit of time to turn it round, but he was never likely to stay once The Davids came along and started publicly criticizing players, etc.

Wonder whether Zola will go back to Italy now, or look for another job in England. He'll have to get the Chelsea job one day!

Grant would make sense. Or Mark Hughes.

I don't know if Zola has a high managerial stock in Italy, he managed the Under-21's but I'm not sure if that will get him a job at one of the bigger clubs.

The writing was on the wall even before he confessed to the press that he nothing about the Dorrans bid.

Grant worked with Stevie Clarke at Chelsea, I'd put my money on him getting it. ok

Wasnt that unlikely really..ending a season on 35 points is not a way to keep your job at that club, with owners who probably think they're massive.

No compensation clause in Grant's contract

Avram Grant has no compensation clause in his contract and will be free to walk out on Portsmouth after the FA Cup final to potentially join West Ham United as successor to axed manager Gianfranco Zola.

Reports claimed that Portsmouth will still demand 1.8 million for their manager and administrator Andrew Andronikou has spelt out the full facts of Grant's future, with Pompey's Wembley Cup final destined to be his final game for the stricken club.

Andronikou will battle to persuade Grant to stay, but he is fighting a losing battle, which now all depends on whether West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold follow through with plans to make an official approach for the Israeli.

All the indications are that Grant, relegated with Pompey, will accept the offer to leap straight back into the Premier League.

Andronikou told Soccernet in an exclusive interview: "Avram has no break clause in his three year contract, nor is there any fixed compensation, but clearly we would be seeking compensation if he left us. But we are not thinking about that as we are not planning to lose him.

"As yet, we have had no approach from West Ham, at least there has been no direct contact and nor would we welcome any because we are aiming for stability for this club over the next year, and we see Avram as the manager to give us that stability.

"It is critically important for the club that it keeps its manager, and of course, it goes without saying that we want him to stay.

"After the Cup final we shall sit down and try to persuade him to stay, and for the moment he is in discussions with us."

Talks have already taken place with Grant, but the signs are not good, as Andronikou confessed: "He wants to know about the club's future financial security, and he wants as much security as he can. I am confident we can show him future stability and that will persuade him to stay."

But without any sign of a new owner, the club still in administration and penniless Pompey about to unload as many players as they can, the future looks grim for Grant.

Soccernet broke the story last month that Grant was on West Ham's short list to replace Zola. The Hammers owners have been impressed by the way Grant has managed Pompey on a shoestring budget all the way to the FA Cup final, as West Ham also have huge debts they need to manage.

Looks like we're going to move for Grant, and since we won't have to pay comp. it'd be a decent deal. Pompey would be foolhardy to push for 1.4 mil.
