Happy to hear latest rumours of Mario lemina. Hope this comes off and believe he could be a good edition to the squad.

Isn't it strange how we he hardly anything and then all of a sudden, we have bids lodged here there and everywhere. Wow, what a change and its so nice and refreshing to see we are actually making moves :-0.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 09:18:15
Phil don't get to excited, It could be the scatter gun going off again, we could be making all kinds of bids but does not necessarily mean if all bids are accepted we will end up with all the players,

Could bids be going in to at least secure an interest?, if a priority bid comes off, I would not be surprised in other bids being dropped!,

It reminds of fishing with a few rods going at the same time, if all the rods show a bite, you would concentrate on reeling in the bigger fish ( tension on line), but the line could snap and the big fish gets away and as you have not bothered about the other rods the other fish may also have got away. I haven't a clue what that means and what i'm even going on about its early and not had my expresso yet. lol David Brent moment.

HI fellas, first AKE, at present WH have done nothing concrete on this the player is, due to sign for Bournemouth as early as next week, so we best get a move on here, very good player great future wish we would IIHEANACHO! Not going through this one again, , the only way WH aré going to succeed here is to treat this as a two year loan, with an option to buy at market value, unless they do similar to this, forget about it, people have different opinions which I respect on this subject. But the original. Offer from WH is too complicated, , keep it simple, LEMINA! Very good player, however, it's becoming clear, and worrying that a lot of midfielders, are coming under the scope, who's going to leave? If he comes for example? MURIEL I said he was a dark horse. BUT Remains so NO BID as yet, NO OFFER for walcott as yet, There have been talks with Giroud representatives today, but nothing new on that Onyereku, date being fixed for another meeting shortly Looks like traore has faded, the two. Ks, are now under bids Kalu And Karamoah PHEW, IRONMIKE.

I've just read that West Ham have made an improved offer for Iheanacho?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

26 Jun 2017 20:35:45
We want 50% buy back clause with deal for what ever we pay for him. other new is we have had talks with juventus for lemina and price is 20 mill euro we also want Muriel of sampdoria for 26 mill.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 17:13:52
HI fellas, UNLESS WH come up with a new, contract offer, we are NO LONGER in the running for Iheanacho, our figures are way out of line with the others involved, IRONMIKE.

Why does this update surprise me NOT one bit?

26 Jun 2017 17:43:14
well if Man City are not even willing to cover the fee and costs (wages, bonus etc) of the player for the 1 or 2 seasons in their buy back valuation then we should tell them to do one! . makes no financial sense!

26 Jun 2017 18:05:38
My opinion is go to table with what we are happy with if they don't agree move on and sign icardi ok last but a pipe dream.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 18:08:41
Being linked to Muriel now : ( 11 goals last year for 24m . Or Walcott 19 goals last year for 25m (ish) no brainier for me.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jun 2017 18:18:19
It has been reported we have made a 8 million bid for Badou Ndiaye of Osmanlispor, he is 26 and plays as a attacking midfielder anywhere across the line he got 7 goals last season and he has said his next team is in the premier league and he is leaving Turkey.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 18:20:42
How can other clubs of a similar stature/ league place (Palace. Leicester etc) be ahead of us? I don't understand why we are so far behind in our offers, what is going on!?

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 18:34:59
Let's not be too critical. The way MC want to deal with us is almost like a glorified loan deal. OK we don't lose too much but why should we be making signings that can be long term for the club. What would happen if he started banging in 24 goals a season for us? He would be worth £50m but we get squat if they bring him back to MC. That's not good business. If Leicester are willing to do that kind of business hats up to them. Do we need to continually compare ourselves against clubs?
Imagine if Spurs had made a similar deal with Gareth Bale. The club they purchased him from could have bought him back for snip and sold him to Real Madrid for £90m or whatever he cost them. Sorry lads, if it was my club I wouldn't be sign him either under those circumstances. Since when do we deal with clubs who dictate stupid terms like that.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 18:56:19
Spot on.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 19:13:08
I get what you're saying COYI64, but if we don't another club in a similar position will and it will strengthen them . It is a loan essentially and I personally don't think it's a bad deal considering the level of player. If it helps fire us into a European spot, long term it would help signing higher calibre of players.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 20:20:03
Huddersfield are in talks with mounie so that'll be two strikers in one week, Lyon have signed traore and Mariano of Real Madrid so we could get giroud hopefully, it does say we have made an improved offer for ihenacho, but what o do know is that we need players and dgs have to prove to us they mean buisness.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jun 2017 22:47:15
Tommyhammer. I would love to have Ihneacho make no mistake about it. I would been like a loan deal. Unfortunately the club wants him permanently and if we cannot have him permanently but have to pay in excess of £20m upfront, then it should be to the benefit of the club and the deal being offered to WH is to the benefit of city only. They should either sell him to us or loan him to us at an annual fee. This is greediness in behalf of MC. Cake and eat it comes to mind. Sure another club will strengthen by having him if they agree to the deal. However, if ihneacho wasnt available in the first place, we would have to look at strengthening our team some other way right? This is what I believe we are trying to do.
Let's not get to down beat. We can uncover a jewell like we did with Lanzini and Payet. We had no competition for their signatures and we got them signed pretty quickly in my opinion. Giroud and Walcott up front would be awesome and if we did sign them, the subject of ihneacho would be forgotten in a matter of two games into the new season.

H fellas, and NOEL, you may remember. my post of last week when I said Captain Chekhou was pushing for two Senegalese teammates, Badou and Kara, well as you now know the first has been bid for, and WH now considering a move for Kara, they could have bought him for peanuts last year but after some impressive displays. Anderlecht want fourteen million euros, it remains to be seen wether hands will go into pockets. It's about time, they did, IRONMIKE.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

26 Jun 2017 12:40:10
Hi ironmike I saw today a offer was put in karamoh which is a start. And last season kara would have been cheap you expect price to go up due to performance but its still not a lot really just over 10 mill sterling for a quality strong and reasonably young cb what's to lose i'd have prefered we got him earlier and not bought fonte! But hey ho. Aleast we are starting to prioritise! Hopefully morr to come. Thanks for reply.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 14:00:32
Although i'm pleased of Mikes report, it just smacks along with all the other reports of names and names and names of everyone, if they are serious about these two which I hope they may be just go and get the deal done and be done with it, without all the faffing around that seems to happen when the DGS are involved in transfers.

I have just read that Palace will announce De Boer and will do the deal with Man C for lhearncho, I hope this is just usual Bull BUT if this lad goes to Palace because they have done the deal it will show us exactly how incompetent the DGS are in the transfer dealings, ( as if we did not already know), Thanks as always Mike for the updates very much appreciated.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 14:17:01
Warrington, I read the iiheancho to Crystal Palace rumour too. The first thing that sprang to mind was perhaps this was a replacement for Benteke. Perhaps WH have agreed to take small step backwards on Iheancho for that reason. I believe we are reluctant to take Iheancho on a glorified loan deal which I believe is how WH view the buy back clause from Man City.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 14:20:45
The Man City buy back clause would have to compensate any costs incurred by the club inc wages, signing bonuses etc etc for the period of service and at least a small % for sure on top! . I have read that the the buy back clause figure may not cover all of such costs which I find bizarre as no club in their right mind would go for that! . If that is in fact the case we should swerve it now!

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 14:48:27
Do what if it doesn't cover all costs if we get a right to buy then a 2 year loan is fine as would be a cheap loan look how much we loaned zaza for and he left early and we got no money back. Atleast we would have a striker who could potentially bump us up the league a few positions therefore paying for the loan.?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 15:19:54
Noel my thoughts exactly, we pay players wages on loans ok maybe we get an option to buy at the end, but if we had the lad for 2 years and his a star than OK he MAY go back to Man C, but let's not forget how big and how much money Man C have, 2-3 years is a long time in football and no doubt another superstar will come to Man C attention for big money so unless lheanocho is absolutely gold dust the odds are they won't come back to buy him,

However I would put in our clause Man C can not buy him back to sell on in the same season, other than that its a no brainer for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 15:23:18
Agree with Noel. WH are not in a position to start getting fussy with deals, esp on a striker. Clubs know just how desperate we are as well, which goes against us. DGS just need to get it done, happy to take the hit on Zaza/ Tore loans, Iheancho is 10 times the player and is comfortable in the PL. Will be riots if Palace get this before us, esp as its been over a month since we first starting talking about this.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 16:19:20
Sorry to say it fella's but I think we've missed the boat with Iheanacho and I reckon Palace and Leicester will be fighting over him and it appears we've changed transfer direction with Walcott and Giroud heavily fancied now. Not holding my breath however.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 17:02:08
I for one would over the moon with Walcott Phil, same pace up front and if we can bring in some pace on the wings ( use Walcott in striker role ) we would definitely be a much more dangerous side!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 17:10:08
The senagalese boys r good players but with ayew and possibly nancho that's a lot of players to lose to Acon if all are signed.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 17:31:18
That is a worry mistley a big one.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 18:42:24
Lads . many of you ars saying so what if the Iheancho move doesn't end up being permanent . do the deal.
This is a case on Man City saying " if he ends up doing well, we want to buy him back for a little more than you paid for him" - what a ridiculous arrangement.
Is like West Ham saying, if we buy your striker and he turns out crap. can we have our money back? What do you think Man City would say to that.?
This is not good business for our club.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 11:39:24
Id like us to take a massive leap of faith and go in for kara for cb. Karamoh, oliver burke and a striker i would imagine it would be well within budget. Just thinking A. Plea for a striker/ winger but would imagine he'd blow budget out of the water. if we are also not having luck with bigger targets maybe time to start looking at people like wood/ assombolonga but even championship stars are carrying big price tags nowadays. I wish us the best of luck. Hope all on the site are having good day! coyi.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

26 Jun 2017 12:26:20
Agreed, Assombalonga is a bit of a beast and Chris Wood might not be a bad investment, but, we would have to act quick before other clubs get exactly the same idea.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 13:12:05
Don't mean to play devils advocate but we have to be aiming higher than WOOD AND ASSOMBALONGA fellas, we've got players of that standard already ableit always injured (CARROLL, SAKHO. ) can you honestly say they would improve on what we've got without sounding awkward in my opinion we should be aiming a lot higher than those two it was only towards the end of season we suddenly heard about ASSOMBALONGA I'd totally forget he was still playing and WOOD just a poor ANDY CARROLL that's my thoughts and granted we are all entitled to our opinions and I can see yours but not for me lads.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 13:31:36
Assombalongas always been abit of a beast could be a bigger antonio but he has been injured throughout the season and given the chance might want to make his mark. This though is a last resort. Wood is a 3rd striker i'd say impact poor carrol maybe scored a lot of goals in champ so could possibly step up and may want to prove others wrong isn't injured like carrol but I get the fact we should be looking higher than this. Just chucking a few suggestions out there as our current approach isn't serving us to well. v. early though and I hope the guys up top proves to be earning their worth. Still players like fulham lb just 16 17 and is star in the making. So they are out there and only a divi down.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 13:35:54
Bigger as in weight wise not player wise lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 17:21:50
I agree with Gkg, we should be setting our sites higher then woods and Assombolonga. We bitch as fans when we buy players who don't shape and then we start asking for these risk players on sites like this. Let's keep our heads and keep looking for a proven goal scorer from a higher league. Otherwise we will end up in championship buying players from the conference.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 19:54:59
HI fella, THINGS moving against WH on Giroud, LYON becoming the draw card, time to pull finger out IF this is the man you want IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

He was never coming to WH let's be honest. I'm sure Aulas has already buttered him up enough to get the deal done.

Apparently it's his family want to go back to France, BUT it's not done yet. IRONMIKE.

Imagine it's a long way off if Arsenal want to buy before they sell.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 11:31:06
Wenger never really does anything quickly when it comes to transfers in past history so i would expect this to drag out until at least end of July anyway! . i think we need to switch targets or we'll be left with zero Strikers and a repeat of last summer! . For me i don't think Giroud is the answer to our prayers anyway. he's getting on now and has never had any pace and not sure up to the defensive qualities which we would undoubtedly need playing for us! .

We need younger hungrier more mobile/ pacey Strikers wanting to prove a point and get themselves noticed as let's be honest if we did manage to unearth that 20 goal a season holy grail of a Striker one of the bigs clubs will be in for him after 2 seasons!

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 13:15:33
Had GIROUD not been told he ain't first choice at the gunners you wouldn't have heard a thing about him being homesick come on do me a favour that's a poor excuse and to be honest I'm not that bothered if we sign him or not there's plenty of OLIVIER GIROUD'S out there.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2017 18:46:23
HI fellas, time to sing to DGS WAKE up wake up, you sleepyheads, get up get up, get out of bed, WH are waiting for you starting tomorrow, Time to start making descisions, we are being left at the post, this week talks with Giroud, agent onyereku, ( who's now thinking Celtic ) traore Kalu, Karamoh and lots Of others, let's get going IRONMIKE.

25 Jun 2017 20:18:15
NO WH struggling already in the market. WE need badly to get someone over the line to give confidence to the supporters, because after just two weeks the confidence is already beginning to drain away, IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 21:07:22
Let's hope this week is a good one for us and our transfer news is good because we do need players in so our confidence are boosted, we need a big season and finish in the top 7.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 08:56:22
Not just that but with mark noble coming out and saying to people we need quality signing etc that will put more pressure on the manager and dgs as the team will feel the same. If we can't get anyone it will surely make the players think why the hell am I here too then?!?!

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 11:12:12
Agree to the Man City deal and bid 25 m for Walcott.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 11:48:30
Just heard that West Ham United are looking at Theo Walcott for 25mil, any thoughts?
I reckon he could be a good buy if Carroll stays fit (and if we keep him? )

Believable0 Unbelievable2

25 Jun 2017 12:35:09
I'm not sure he would come BUT to be honest he would be a good buy, he ONLY scored 19 goals last year! I'm sure some people will say that's not enough or he's not good enough!

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 13:46:27
He has exactly what we need loads of pace think he'd be great.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 16:09:11
Great player! . would be very happy with Walcott he'd walk into our side all day long!

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 17:15:22
Would WH would pay his wages. £100k plus a week.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 18:30:48
Think Walcott and Anthonio could be as good a pairing as Cotter and Mcavennie great pairing lots of pace Walcott pass to Anthonio and it's in the nett.

25 Jun 2017 18:34:00
Sadly not I'd think Tommy but never say never.

I wouldn't be concerne but what he could bring to the club but rather his history of injuries. Why would arsenal want rid of him?

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 17:12:37
Hi fellas, after talks with Lyon, Giroud comes to WH Monday and then speaks to Everton, after that, WH appear to be the favourites here, BUT, as I said the next two weeks will tell the transfer window story, with all the players now associated with WH IF failure ensues we can prepare fir a scramble to get something done, RUI. P, I wish! Nothing to date from WH As the club comes out of hibernation, perhaps something will happen, we al, hope, IRONMIKE.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

24 Jun 2017 19:59:11
Any news on Eva banega.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 00:39:15
Banega is a player we should go for, there is a player I rate highly and that's Samu castillejo of Villarreal great winger he is young very quick and got good end product there is also others who wouldn't cost the earth and be great talents maxwell cornet of Lyon, Leon baily of genk, and Matheus perieria of Lisbon.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 07:42:50
Iv got this feeling that Everton might try do a swap deal with us for obiang and we get Barkley, now I hope this don't happen as I feel pedro is great in the middle and could be our surprise player of season next year if we can I'd like us to sign Barkley might not for a silly price tho.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 09:40:03

Yawn imagine having him Wilshire, Carroll and Rodriguez at least the physio will be busy 😂.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 11:35:51
Any truth in the patricio rumours? I think he'd be a great option over Hart. Experienced, coming to his prime at 30 and has great pedigree. Also the reported price and lower wages would make this a no brained for me.

Believable1 Unbelievable3

24 Jun 2017 14:59:18
We need to sign:

Giroud
Iheancho
Onyekuru
Wilshere
Smalling
Hart

However, this will take time as all the above will only be released once replacements are found. I for one will judge the board and the end of the transfer window as anything can happen yet. I do agree that if they fail this time then I think it's curtains and time for them to sell up. It's maybe not their lack of ambition but with the funds they have we are unable to compete with the teams around us and move forward. With this stadium we should be playing champions league football in the next 5-7 years and the way we are going about things currently it is more likely to be championship football.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 15:17:14
We won't sign Onyekuru now that Arsenal have agreed a fee. The club isn't far sighted enough to realise that £10M for Smalling is a bargain, so we won't get him. Wilshire would just join Carroll and Sakho on the treatment table for 7/ 8ths of the season - so yeah. nailed on we'll sign him.

Hart. Meh, rather Patrico if there's any chance at all. Iheancho? Nah. Now that it's being reported Sakho's "fit" he'll be lauded as a "new signing" again.

So that leaves Giroud. Sorry no chance, Sully just won't spring for an established PL striker when there's plenty of dodgy lower league nobodies he can loan, both from home and abroad. Besides, Giroud's just rocked up at Lyon airport which probably speaks volumes.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 19:38:48
rui p over hart
will hughes over wilshire (8mill to watford? bargain)
smalling or ake over all the othe cbs mentioned
iheanacio over giroud
onyekru at that price is worth a punt
couple of others worth looking at-tousart and ramselaar.

23 Jun 2017 12:27:25
HI fellas, Valencia have been in touch with WH they are looking to offload Negredo either on a loan or hopefully a sale, Anyway next two weeks are going to tell the story the captains will be back in charge of the ship, and IF they haveanything in mind all will be revealed, because up till now, ther has been very little IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

23 Jun 2017 13:18:18
Negredo please do me a favour another cheap deal or loan everyone involved in transfers at West ham want a good kick up the bollocks all these apparent targets we show interest in nothing happens then we find out a few days-weeks later they have been signed by another club I know what they are playing at getting loans for players with a view to buying on players nobody wants f----d off doesn't do it.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 15:00:01
Gkg66, that was harsh he he he 😂😃 I think majority of us agree and understand buddy our transfer dealings are not good and its getting harder 😭 I keep hearing it's early in tge transfer window which is very true however when your seeing players we are linked with going to other clubs it is a little concerning.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 Jun 2017 16:07:18
PLEASE! Not Negredo - everyone, knows that we need at least one 20 goals per season striker . Is that him? In my opinion no . The evidence is there for all to see he is simply not good enough 😎.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 16:21:30
Remember? We were told our move to the Olympic stadium would attract players so we could compete with the big boys?

Agree6 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 17:17:22
Phil. who are these targets of ours who have signed for other clubs?

Batsy, Nacho, Giroud, Wood, Onyekuru, Traore are all still with the club they were last season.

Or did your comment actually just mean that players West Ham never held an interest in have signed for other clubs and you will use that to beat the club over the head with just like you do everything else.

Agree4 Disagree4

23 Jun 2017 17:59:11
I find it quite funny when people say we need a 20 goal a season Striker! . Now forgive me but that that would cost at least 50m and i'm probably being conservative there in todays valuations!

These 20 goal season Strikers don't grow on trees. I mean your talking about the likes of Kane, Lukaku, Aguero etc. you really think we could attract that calibre of player?

Agree5 Disagree3

23 Jun 2017 18:06:55
Yep great post Pauls626 😂 boo hoo. Beat the club over the head is it? Funny guy I like your humour. Let's just watch and wait shall we and see what happens.

Agree6 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 18:28:01
So all you can do is take the piss rather than quote which of our targets have signed for other clubs which says it all really. Enjoy your moaning Phil.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Jun 2017 20:32:55
I forgot this is a rumour and banter site where we can express an opinion. Much the same as a lot of other passionate hammers fans i have concerns over which direction we are going in and how we behave/ conduct business during transfer windows and as such I voice my thoughts (And have a laugh at the same time). If you think am taking the piss then let's wait till the season starts and see where we are then and I'll wager a large amount of money that there are some strong comments on here over the poor job we've done again. Am passionate and moan because I care.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jun 2017 21:32:51
Hiya pauls626 of those players you mentioned not one of those players would prefer to come to us in my opinion we always or nearly always get players which other clubs don't want I'd be very surprised if we sign any of those players apart from wood to which I don't think he's a real target.

he'd be a panic buy if we don't get anybody in I know where Phil's coming from because us PASSIONATE West ham supporters are fed up with getting players that simply aren't the standard we are looking for.

I know it's early in the window but we moved to this stadium with sort of promises we'd attract top players and compete with the top four or five we can all talk bull. I've got a degree in it, difference is I don't own West ham so I can talk bull and get away with it.

this games all about opinions and I agree with Phil because we will top up with big standard players snodgrasses level to which I said when we bought him he wasn't a prem player more a good championship player to which people on this site didn't agree with me but a complete waste of 10 million.

It is frustrating being a hammer sometimes because we all want the best for our club and we get let down by transfers a lot, just hope this window is different and we can get the class that will improve us that we have been promised xx.

It says it all even Huddersfield have just broke there transfer record for a striker, at least they got one in we will prob take forever, we will prob get loic remy as Chelsea have put him up for sale on the cheap.

At the risk of causing a correspondent another bout of amusement . Not all the strikers who scored a lot of goals in the premier league cost 50 mill plus . Josh King, Defoe, llorente whilst Giroud scored 12 and was not a regular starter are examples but I take your point . However it is possible to pay a fair amount for a player and then develop him (as Everton did with Lukaku) I am sure we can do that and there are other competitions as well. Would it not be the case that a fit Andy Carroll would be well into double figures? Maybe it's a case of people lifting their expectations and not being so insecure. My real point was that I hope we do not sign Negredo.

Great comments everybody, now back to business. Did anyone watch new zealand on tv the other night where Chris wood scored but missed 3 glorious chances so not sure about this kid (just in case he is one of the later options) cash plus Fletcher maybe? Lacazette apparently close to arsenal deal which will free up giroud but interest in him from France?

Paul, the owners love people like you who are more than happy to excuse their awful transfer business season in season out. You ask about the players and then say they've gone nowhere else yet which of course is true, but we all know not one of them will ever sign for us under these owners. If you don't believe me and others look at the 32 strikers our esteemed owners have bought and then tell me they are good enough in the transfer market! Look at the mess of last summer where they promised quality and delivered absolute dross on frees and loans, how many of those signings have we had to let go? The less said about the clown Snodgrass the better. I actually feel the very best we could get under these 2 is Negredo and that is a terrible indictment upon them and the way the run our once proud club.

Joe u said a 20+ goal a season striker. and if buts and maybes on Carroll is pretty much an irrelevant argument really and none of those players u mentioned have even scored 20 goals! . i'm just making the point that I doubt we could afford a 50m+ Striker let alone have the pulling power/ ambition that a Striker of that calibre would seek in a club! . yes we can do what Everton did with Lukaku but they still paid near on 30mill for him and the Valuations of not even quality footballers have doubled at least from 2-3 years ago that's for sure!

Dependant on the price of angered I, I wouldn't be too disappointed if we signed him. He did (in my opinion) a terrific job at Man CIty and couldn't understand why they got rid of him. Also, considering the Middlesbrough team aren't the best in terms of their final ball delivery, he wasn't that bad there either.

Angered was supposed to be Negredo by the way. Damn president active text.

Too many Traore' - surely they mean the kid from Boro - this Traore is surely destined for a bigger club than us?

HI fellas talking about possibilities drifting by, , it appears that Newcastle are about to sign Aboubakar from Porto for just 10m euros this is a player that WH, scouted on no less than than eight occasions officially and probably more than that, ) He's not a world beater by any means, but he got more goals than any of our mob last year, and has played in euro competitions, he virtually agreed terms with West Ham United at end of season I was ready then to print a post . Saying he will be first signing this year, and he's going to the magpies at the same wage we offered WHAT happened? Yes Porto are selling because they want slimani back from Leiczester, WH just vanished? IRONMIKE.

Aboubakar for 10m euro's, No way? And people on here wonder why we are disgruntled, its a joke!

WTF are our scouts doing. Probably sat on some beach in Columbia watching some unknown south American they will recommend and we all know how that works out.

Meanwhile, our owners are on holiday whilst deal after deal goes by!

22 Jun 2017 15:54:32
Not sure the scouts are to blame, they put forward names and SB and more importantly DGS decide wether to pursue or not .

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 16:07:12
gutting really isn't it. wait till the end to see who we have got if anyone by then. I quite like Aboubakar quite fast strong and can score. I can just tell this is going to be a disappointing window but hey ho. Don't go to bed .

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 16:58:14
Same old story we want a player talks go well and then we let them slip why can't we just get the deals done there is no doubt we will get some junk in or a South American who just can't cut it, but I do hope we are proved wrong guys.

Lets be honest about this. Clubs in general have no say on what their or other players do in the transfer period, it doesn't matter if your quick or not! . The Agents and the Player have the power! . the Agent would be doing his client a disservice if he wasn't trying to get the best deal for his client and himself of course. The Agent is going to run around all the clubs he can marketing his client trying to squeeze out the most money and opportunity they can, it's very uncommon they will take the first option presented to them. that's why none of this is a quick process unless of course it's a huge prestigious european club and massive money involved!

Agreed and as Mark Noble has said “I think we need to get a few in. I’m sure the chairman is working tirelessly to get them in but this market is so hard. Players are so expensive now and you get priced out of deals. We’re competing with so many other teams to get the players we want. ”

And as he says that, L’Equipe report Huddersfield are now set to steal a march on the Irons by signing 22-year-old,
14 goal steve mounie.

Hmmmmm, no disrespect but Huddersfield?

Huddersfield are preparing Tug of War with us over Wilshire? Is this right, are we really after Wilshire? ANyboidy know anymore.

If that's true Phil Huddersfield will win that argument because as we all know West ham offer ridiculous low fees for players Huddersfield will offer sensible money and will get their man I know you should try and get players for the cheapest u can but we take it to another level I'm afraid Phil that's the top and bottom of it mate and us mugs have to put up with it .
