WHO Poll
Q: 2022 Summer Transfer Window - How many 1st team players will we sign before August 6th
a. None as Sullivan will wait until the last week before he gets his scattergun out the cupboard
28%
  
b. A couple of freebies paraded as superstars, usual hype to follow
26%
  
c. I'm more optimistic as surely they know we need to strengthen, 3-4 with decent money spent.
43%
  
d. Who gives a toss as we have a great squad already, I've already ordered the new replica kit, socks and all and can't wait to wear it at our first game, down the pub of course, I bleed claret & blue

Re: Hannu Tihinien
He was brilliant, he should have been signed, but Redknapp spunked the money instead on Rigobert Song and Camara (I think.)

Re: Hannu Tihinien
42% of babies born to West Ham fans since 2001 have been named HANNU
FACT

Will probably be the most common name in the U.K. by 2025
ANOTHER FACT

Re: Hannu Tihinien
This made me laugh from Wikipedia....



Helmet[edit]

Tihinen injured his head many times during his career. Because of that he wore a helmet during his last seasons. He was also very good with his head, which he used to score most of his goals.

Lily Hammer 3:57 Tue Apr 25 Genuine ''thanks'' for the correction.

Re: Hannu Tihinien
Redknapp said he wasn't 'top drawer'.
A bloke who won two championships with Anderlecht and two with Zurich after his loan at West Ham plus seventy odd caps for Finland was certainly good enough for us,whichever drawer you would place him. Looks like there was no brown envelope for 'arry
on offer.

Re: Hannu Tihinien
From Wiki:

On 13 April 2012, the 35-year-old Tihinen announced his candidacy to run for the new president of the Football Association of Finland, as the post was left open after Sauli Niinistö was elected as President of Finland

Love the fact that being President of the Finnish FA is the previous stepping stone for being President of the Finnish Nation

Wrong OT win mate. It wasn't the Tevez great escape, it was the PDC vs Barhtez Le Taxi (Joe's brother) cup win.

Re: Hannu Tihinien
Old Trafford he was immense the whole game MOM APART FROM Tevez being remembered for ''that goal''.

Re: Hannu Tihinien
He Played in the famous cup win at Old Trafford right?

If it was him he was fuckin brilliant. Why did we not sign him?

B6NY B 2:23 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
THAT clearance v the YIDS, still don't know how he did it.

RESPECT to the point.

Haz 2:12 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
Whenever I saw him play, he was bllody good and never understood why we didn't sign him.

Hannu THE IRON MOUNTAIN Tihinen.

Bring him back. . . .

Council Scum 2:06 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
He had one good game and was dog shit after that

Kearley 2:00 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
He only started half a dozen games 15 years ago but he seems to get an annual thread.

Re: Hannu Tihinien
Excellent player. Not sure how we missed out there.

Sniper 12:34 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
I think part of the reason there's this romantic pedestalling of tihinen is henpkayed well during his loan spell as a replacement for Rio, then we wouldn't stump up there case to buy him permanently and ended up with the likes of daily, song, soma, fixed, todorov etc who were all far far worse

Actually started the process of Harry's demise/departure

Godwinson 12:20 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
Lily, yes - he was involved in that win.

Titi Camara coming on as a late sub still makes me chuckle.

Sounds like a rally driver.

Lee Trundle 11:54 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
As OTB has said, he's one of those players who have got better in the years that have past.

He was with us for 3 months and played alright in a couple of games, yet people build him up like he's a cult hero or something.

essexmaniacinexile 11:53 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
I asked Harry about him once and why we never signed him (not long after his loan had finished).

He actually said he had the wrong agent.

greenie1 11:50 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
Thought he was quite good. Don't know why we didn't sign him.

Willtell 11:39 Tue Apr 25
Re: Hannu Tihinien
Yes I remember him and like Schemmel he was a poor player that managed to play like a god for a season or two...
