And we are off.
Lets see if Forest look better than last week.

Yesterday, Ten Hag wanted to sub out *every* starter at the half-time break, he was that disgusted at that "performance" ManUre put on.
 
2022-08-14 9:02:03 AM  
One of the things I like about the Premier League is the "these two teams haven't faced each other in the top tier since 1992" stuff.

Forest still without a shirt sponsor?
You'd think with all the telly box coverage & so on companies would be falling over themselves to get their name splashed across those shirts
 
2022-08-14 9:05:24 AM  
I'm not really sure why we've not got a shirt sponsor yet, maybe we're holding out for more money than is being offered.

We're very much a work in progress team, there's still likely another four signings before the window shuts, and then we can maybe start working out how we're going to play.

Watch, their next sponsor is a betting firm.

I'm wondering if they were talking to a crypto company and that didn't work out.

Last I read is that they were gunning for a £10m shirt deal & that they've turned down deals in the region of £6-7m already.

Guess that's the 'different direction' that the club wanted: more money. Only fair since they're in the Premiership, after all.
 
2022-08-14 9:28:07 AM  
Nice to see I haven't missed anything with this match.
 
2022-08-14 9:33:12 AM  
What's Moyes whining about to the 4th official?
 
2022-08-14 9:35:43 AM  
Making breakfast, waiting for the audio cues from the Spanish broadcasters in Telemundo. If I hear the crescendo and rising tempo of Sammy Sadovnik, I have seconds to start paying attention.

Pista: What's Moyes whining about to the 4th official?


I was trying to figure that out, and I was only listening to it at the time.
 
2022-08-14 9:39:45 AM  
That was a half chance for the Hammers.
 
2022-08-14 9:41:32 AM  
ref interference

I just read it.
They were miffed at the late offside flag.
But the current directive is that the officials wait if there's a clear goal scoring opportunity. Which that was.
 
2022-08-14 9:42:05 AM  
outta the way, stripes!
 
2022-08-14 9:42:14 AM  
Big save from Fabianski
 
2022-08-14 9:42:49 AM  
How was Benrama onside?
 
2022-08-14 9:42:49 AM  
And the Hammers pull ahead at the City Ground.
 
2022-08-14 9:43:23 AM  
This might not count.
Antonio brutally body checked a defender in the build up
 
2022-08-14 9:43:29 AM  

harleyquinnical: How was Benrama onside?


Good question. OFF TO THE VAR!
 
2022-08-14 9:43:36 AM  
All the controllers for Forest disconnected
 
2022-08-14 9:43:51 AM  
Big body check and looked offsides
 
2022-08-14 9:43:59 AM  
Benrama scores for now.
See what VAR has to say about the weird sequence.
0-1

VAR says no, back to 0-0.
 
2022-08-14 9:45:07 AM  
Goal disallowed thanks to Antonio going in hard with that shove to the defender.
 
2022-08-14 9:45:11 AM  
Check of the monitor, no goal.
Antonio runs over the defender.
I'd say that is the right call.
 
2022-08-14 9:45:11 AM  
Computer says no.

Lucky for Forest, they went to sleep there.
 
2022-08-14 9:45:34 AM  
Nico Williams gives Fabianski something to think about.
 
2022-08-14 9:45:54 AM  
That block by Antonio would have been a good play in the NFL.

Seriously, he clearly changes his direction to contact the defender. Even so, Forest got of jail there for not playing to the whistle.
 
2022-08-14 9:46:40 AM  
Forest score
 
2022-08-14 9:47:13 AM  
I don't know how much he knew about that.
 
2022-08-14 9:47:37 AM  
Oh what a let off.
 
2022-08-14 9:48:37 AM  
Forest take the lead.
Lucky bounce off the knee and into the goal.
1-0
 
2022-08-14 9:48:55 AM  
To score just at the death of the first half - that ought to sting at the visitors' lockers.
 
2022-08-14 9:54:41 AM  
Time for a spot of half time reading & I see Southend have seen the error of their ways
Wonder it they'll need to reprint all the season ticket cards?
 
2022-08-14 9:55:02 AM  
Telemundo showing some highlights of yesterday's games. I'm still in disbelief at United being on the ass end of an ass-kicking at Brentford.

*offside, no "s" on the end in round-ball footie.

Chelsea celebrating their first home game under new owners by offering every fan a free beer.

I cannot see any way in which this could go wrong.
 
2022-08-14 10:05:08 AM  
Henderson showing De Gea how it's done
 
2022-08-14 10:05:35 AM  
Fries are done!

Sorry, chips are done!
 
2022-08-14 10:06:28 AM  
Oh what a beginning for the Hammers.  Bar denied Soucek and then Henderson there to deny the put back.
 
2022-08-14 10:06:36 AM  
Crossbar and Henderson with a big save keep Hammers off the board.

Probably has the better sense NOT TO PASS TO A PLAYER THAT IS BEING CLOSED DOWN

/there are risky passes, and then there's whatever that was

That was De Gea's favorite Pink Floyd album: a momentary lapse of reason.

I will never get used to seeing keepers in ball caps.
