Re: Well then, is that now another poor to average windows?

I don't see what the problem is. Each season we seem to comfortably survive with a bit to spare and we look like doing the same again. The problem is that people are obsessed about transfer windows in blissful ignorance of where we keep finishing in the league and how the club is improving overall ...

Re: BFC TRANSFER NEWS Jan 2020(MUST CONTAIN LINK)

West Ham are the classic panic car crash of a club. Linked with every man and his dog. End up paying 40m for players who have had one decent year and no prem experience. Then nearly get relegated every season.
