These are some of the names playing for them at the time:

Lampard
Rio Ferdinand
Carrick
Joe Cole
Defoe
DiCanio
Kanoute


Also:
Marc-Vivin Foe
John Hartson
Stuart Pearce
Trevor Sinclair
Ian Wright
Eyal Berkovic

That's all i can think of at the moment... (Feel free to add other good players that i might have forgotten)

Now just imagine that they still had that team?

:eekani:

true, Dicks would be better even now probably.

if Pardew wants to retain credicility about Ashton going to the World Cup then he should shut up about PK.

If they had ambition? :wallbang:

You're forgetting the small fact that we were relagated after the '02-03 season & languished in the Championship for 2 years, can't expect to carry that wage bill outside the Prem & have the club remain solvent. Not to say the board hasn't made some bonehead decisions, but let's be realistic.

How many of those players Johnson, Cole, Defoe, Kanoute, Carrikc were part of the great 'ammers team that got relegated?

your chairman has been selling off your talents for donkeys years, it's not just because you were relegated.
I said the board made some crap decisions, not letting them off the hook. Lamps & Rio were of course sold before relegation, but the last of the Academy could've stayed around if not for us going down.

All of them, that was my point. Carrick was the only one to stay.
If they were that good as a unit back then, the the 'appy 'ammers wouldn't got relegated?

Or was it a combination of Roeder and Redknapp?

Not saying they were always that good as a unit, that season the Hammers didn't win a home game until January. After Christmas was a completely different story, finishing on 42 points & being pipped from safety by Bolton on the last day. The best team in a generation to be relegated, it was said.

A bit of 'arry, but Roeder will always be the scapegoat overseeing that disastrous first half of the season. Of coure Trevor Brooking took over when Roeder left due to illness, & TB turned it around for us, just barely too little too late.

imo, Roeder did contribute to us going down. Of the many failure's, his biggest mistake was leaving out Di Canio. He let his personal differences get in the way of the best interests of the club which imo is unforgivable.

It was no suprise that when TB took charge he was stright back in the side where he put in some stellar performances (I remember Chelsea in particular).
