paultheroyal Michail "i am not good as Kebe, even now" Antonio" did ok yesterday.


It’s a bit of a shame he’s getting on a little bit now, as if he was showing this form and was about 5 years younger, he might even get an England call up.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Can't remember many moaning when he was sold though and from memory we got quite a decent sell on clause for the time

I like that after all the money West Ham have spent Antonio is the one doing the business for them. Contracts up at the end of the season too.

Yep, selling him and getting McCleary on a free was one of the best bits of business we’ve ever done. Antonio’s developed a good eye for goal but he didn’t have the sort of quality we needed. We gave the lad every chance here, he failed, he went elsewhere and succeeded. Good on him.

Are you his agent or something.

Not at all. Message board of opinion. I am of course allowed to offer a counter opinion and cant help it if i am right, continually when it comes to Antonio.

I guess it shows what you can do when there aren't 4 players better than you in your position already at the club.

He's done well for himself but it doesn't mean we were wrong to grant his request to leave and drop down a division (effectively 2 after we got promoted) in search of first team football.

Surely better business were selling Hughes and Blackman ...

I predict for Charlton, it will be like when we signed Ian Harte. Good luck to him!

I think he'll do really well there. His time was up here but still a championship standard player imo

Think you're overestimating the number of people you count as.

Some of our fans seem to have a weird obsession with Lucas Piazon.

I think the fact that he responds every single time, helps keep it going tbh. Both sides should grow up and move on.
