So in the last 4 seasons Frankfurt are unbeaten in their 3 trips to England, winning 2. They should really have had a crack at the Champions League already given teams like Schalke, Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg made it in the same timespan but weren't quite as impressive in Europe.
I’m really fucking sad right now. Good playing, Frankfurt. Excited for leg 2.
BTFO as usual LMAO
Amazing match from us! That was way more than I expected. Also Hats off to the Hammer Fans in this Thread. Haven't seen any salty posts or looking for excuses like bad pitch, referee, all around classy. I already know which PL Team I'll watch more closely from now on.
Cheeky *Rolls out measuring tape*
So fucking full of yourselves
Ah yes, because they were the one playing
Was a good even game could have gone anywhere still all to play for
RTL jinxing Frankfurt with how confident they are that Frankfurt got this in the bag. "Frankfurt with the way better chances and deserved this win easily" sure bud.
Westham scored 3 in Lyon, this tie is a long way from over.
I think we played better, more mature how to act with the Ball etc. - but West Ham had good chances and this could have easily ended differently.
Very entertaining game. Both teams well matched and a thrilling last few minutes
Jared Bowen is massive
Wherever he goes!
I feel so sorry for whatever club gets scammed into buying rice for anything more than 40 million
Rice was class tonight I don’t know what game you watched
he really fancies himself a top 10 player doesnt he?
He played well tonight calm down
So about that BL farmers league.
well bayern has won the last ~~8~~ 10, isn't that the literal definition of a farmers league.
Frankfurt looking good though
Good game from both teams
Gonna smash up another pub?
Awwwwww. So this is what they mean when they say 'sore loser'.
Just banter mate. Like you making an account just for this game. Pure banter.
Not fussed about the game you guys played well but not gonna give respects to a team who attacked and smashed up our pubs
Oh shit, you've seen someone from the team at the attacks? Who was it? Rode? Jakic?
Mate, your guys can't even keep the German commentators at the game safe from attacks. What's the fuss now?
Lol where's this energy when you're blaming an entire fanbase and club for some journalists getting attacked?
> Don't you think it's the job of the club to keep the official commentators in the stadium safe? It's not on you, daft one, it's your club doing a shit job in security.
There it is.
I know that a stadium is not a safe space, I've been to games since the early 90ies ffs. But commentator boxes, sheesh. Just get a grip.
You attacked West Ham fans having an a drink in bar? You are not innocent
Frankfurt fans have never been innocent. We've got our share of hooligans and rowdies. Now what?
You'll tell me that the Hammers fans are all angels in disguise?
No we have some absolute cunt fans but have been very well behaved in Europe.
damn i didnt know the Frankfurt Team did that. Was it Kostic?
So salty 🥲
Frankfurt fans smashed up a pub last night and attacked West Ham fans in Seville
It’s unlikely that it was this particular fan though. Every club has fools. Just let him be happy.
Of course but if that was English fan you guys would be crawling over it
Why would you say that? If you check my comment history you will rarely find any negative comments about football in general.
I have no issues with English fans, why would I? Just have beer, sleep if off and Westham will get another chance to turn it around next week.
Not you mate but Frankfurt fans attacked us in a Seville and then smashed up a pub last night and mo1 cares
Pain. At least it’s payday in a few hours
Bowen had the unluckiest game I ever seen, hit the post twice and took a shot to the balls
What the fuck is this ref? First half he whistles in the midst of our attack and here he just lets it run crazy long?
He added the time where Borre was down, I guess and he waited for trapp to kick it.
West Ham will be regretting all the poor crosses. So many wasted opportunities
Jared Bowen? More like Jared Bowie with how artistic that was
Wouldn't even be mad, solid shout that
Not only close on the bicycle but also so close to rebounding off the GK into the goal.
This just isnt over, 3 times we hit the bar/post today and we were not really playing that great. Frankfurt were better today but with a good performance in Germany we have a chance
Kamada hit the post as well, but it's definitely not over yet
No doubt. With no away goal rule, 2-1 is completely open.
PFEIFF AB DU HURENSOHN
Where's the whistle? He was so strict in the first half
Bowen been getting better and better as the year’s gone on
Ghost of Haller with them bicycle kicks
Holy shit Bowen
God with a trash can for a heart
What a fucking shot! That was a picture book bicycle kick right there!
Holy fuck. What a shot
oh my days very nearly
Even as a Frankfurt fan, this deserved a goal.
Nope. It deserved exactly what it got. Some replays on tv.
West ham have been incredibly unlucky
It’s alright at least the Frankfurt fans can smash up another but then call English fans scum
Downvoted when most have never have been a game or realise that the Frankfurt smashed up a pub last night and attacked West Ham fans in Seville
English fans are scum though
And so are Germans. English fans are bad but German fans have awful recently.
I’m sure you will call West Ham scum despite Frankfurt fans attacking West Ham having a quiet beer
Let's be honest, we are both scum
Lmao I know. Every team has its share of unsavoury individuals. It’s just fun to rip on the English
Bowen what was that???
THAT WOULD HAVE WON THE PUSKAS AWARD IF IT WENT IN!!!
holy fucking shit if that went in
Football gods you have to let that go in
Holy fucking shit dude.
That would've been goal of the tournament right fucking there.
That would've been beautiful
that desreved a goal ngl.
3 shots already to the posts in this match right?
You’re taking the piss, why didn’t that go in? 😭😭😭😭
good lord i didn't know bowen even had that in his locker
Wtf did I just see 💀💀💀💀💀
Unfortunate Bowen, that would have been one for the highlight reel for the year
3 time we hit the post/bar ffs
NO THAT SHOULD'VE GONE IN IT WAS SO GOOD
That would have been puskas worthy
How the fuck is there only 3 minutes?
Holy shit, what a finish!
Now that shot deserved a goal, wtf
OH MY GOD
WHAT IN THE FUCK
Oh my days.
Shame that would have been an amzing goal
That would have been a banger!
What the fuck???
How did that not go in?!????!
simple, it didn’t cross the line
3 MINUTES? Signed
Borre pulling an aljamain sterling
Hit to the face - nothing 😂
Why does Glasner not making any changes until the players are dead lol
last time he did we came back from nowhere and somehow won
In the league we start sucking *badly* as soon as we start subbing our starting 11 lol.
Because every sub we have atm is a huge drop in quality. Even when they are this dead
there's a big dropoff in quality
I get that, but I think at the very least Chandler and Hasebe can come on
Chandler has been absolute wank this season. Bowen with 85 mins in his legs would have a field day against him
Would have been up against Benrahma on the right and it'd be ok as long as he gets backed up by Tuta and they set up deep. The inability to utilise the depth only exacerbates the problem imo because it's difficult to slot in seamlessly when you haven't played for a while.
Hasebe sure, but Glasner really hasn't played him much recently, Timmy idk dude
We have no depth
Because our bench players are not that good
Do u guys think Rice will go for more than what Grealish did?
If he get‘s sold this/next summer absolutely
I would hope so, considering Grealish has done fuck all
Yeah, but you cant really judge Grealish on his performances now. He was as vital for Villa as Rice is to West Ham
Nah we will probably keep him for the duration
It's not about the price it's to deter him being sold
But do you think he would want to stay himself? I mean i thought Grealish would stay for a looong time, especially when he had just signed a new contract 6 months before.
For now there's no better place for him to go is there, things can change until his contract runs out which he still has 3 years on, he won't renew as it keeps things in balance and also gives our owners reason to invest in new players around rice. And if we keep overperforming then why would he go anywhere else if we got to champions league and whole new squad rebuilt and kept within the top 6. I think that's why at the moment he won't be going anywhere. And yes Maguire and Grealish are examples why he shouldn't leave if he wants to get all this prime experience, they shouldn't of left for their development imo
Rice bb come home to Chelsea
Rice really does look like the real deal. Man's all over the pitch.
as a non pl watcher i dont see any 150mio guy on the field
He isn't 150m to any club other than WH.
Y'know what, I do think Rice is a baller but there's highkey no such thing as a 150mio footballer. Like, maybe prime Messi and Ronaldo but outside of that, 150m for any player is just fucked.
Zidane went for 75M in 2001 which is like 107M today, i don't understand how some of these players come close to prime Zidane fee.
Exactly. The concept of a 9 figure player is absurd, that's a number for a generational player.
I see a 100m guy for sure
He has been the best player today tho
Knauff? Yes he was, but he's not worth 150m yet.
have to say if you watch him close he looks good
Creswell can’t make a successful cross to save his life
Now German people see that Rice is world class aswell
You need to update your flair, couldn’t tell who you were supporting at first
i dont see it
Wait why's that a corner
this ref has been so bad in calling corner/throw-ins
I think we need some subs to finish this off. We look half dead right now.
We can probably get a result in germany if our crosses are better, so many times they have been straight at Trapp
Borre asking for a hand and that West Ham player telling him off was quite hilarious
This thing would be through with the away goal rule
Not knowing who the ref is my first guess would have been English if it were possible, given how abysmal he is for both sides.
That was a bonafide Angeliño moment
Schalke brains so fried by relegation that they have become bigger RB shills than RB fans.
They have an excellent management and talent recruitment. I respect their work over the years despite the RB sponsoring
I don't like RBL but what a hit from Angelino.
West Ham would be out without Rice tonight. He’s been fantastic
Madrid would be fucked without Bezema? Who cares the players play for that team
True, but my point is that Rice alone has made some big interventions and decisions in this game that if he didn’t make, West Ham wouldn’t be in this position
Rice is so good. Not 150m good but still.
Yeah probs 148-149
Quite a likeable side Frankfurt except Rode who’s a nob 😂
What? Rode is a top top bloke tho!
That's his job.
Round these parts we call that James McCarthy
Cresswell with his best Henderson attempt right there
