Hi fellas, Pellegrini down the road tonight has been there quite a while About 4 hours, lots to talk about staying at the Marriot , due back early for breakfast and to continue and finalise, we may get an announcement tommorow depending on how long it all takes IRONMIKE

This is close with MP, and would signal a start and hopefully the much promised and delayed leap into another level. If he plays high tempo attacking football than that will do me, as long as we get some value for our 90 mins win or lose, it would be a huge step than the dross served up over the last few years.

Me personally am excited to see what calibre players he may attract and what players are we saying goodbye to. We do have decent players and managed and play in a style that suits them we may not need as many players coming in as first thought. Be interesting to see if Hernandez will stay under MP, I hope so as he is a goal machine, and if he can work with Marko we could have something exciting on our hands.

Im not a DS fan by no imagination but if he gets this over the line fair play to him, if indeed he is on £10m a year wages it does pose a huge gamble if it goes tits up, as to sack him will not be an opition, hopefully DS will play his Del Boy negations and install some kind of max payoff if it goes wrong.

Anyway nothing is certain until a contract is signed and cross fingers this will not be another false hope, and DS gives him the money to bring us up, I don't think we at this stage of our transition can ask for a better manager, cross fingers it happens.

Surely putting a manager on that sort of money they will put in some sort of release clause if in trouble to get rid there tight with everything else they do.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2018 15:49:01
Knowing DS rowe he will have a clause stating if they do not win the Prem and FA cup the salary drops to £3m a year lol.

HI fellas, Just a-rewind of last week, to be honest I wasn't taking notice at that time, BUT I now learn that Unai Emery didn't come to London at all he was stopped beforehand, makes no difference just thought I would mention it, IRONMIKE

21 May 2018 13:04:27
Probably just dreaming but it would be great to have Pellegrini for say 5 years with Ginge as his assistant. Pellegrini then retires and Ginge takes over with Noble as his assistant 😁 ok I'll get my coat 🤪.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2018 13:12:16
Be interesting to see who he brings in behind the scenes mike, coaching, recruitment, technical?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2018 15:28:04
It looks like Emery could be going to Arsenal anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 23:38:45
Rumours that Pellegrini to sign 3 year deal on £10millipn per year with control of transfers. That'll be a first for a few years.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

21 May 2018 13:15:55
Believe it when it's confirmed but for SULLY to have no say on who's spending his money beggers belief and if it's true with PELLEGRINI have the whole say on any transfer dealings with the BRADY BUNCH not getting involved will be the biggest and best bit of news WEST HAM SUPPORTERS have had in the last few years and bring it on next news will be the BRADY BUNCH have left the club we can only DREAM AND DREAMS CAN BECOME REALITY U KNOW. COYI.

Hi fellas Bale tenemos a neuvo jefe (Ok we have a new boss ) . Felicidades desde IRONMIKE greetings from me, Make no bones about it Sullivan is sticking his neck on the block here big gamble this 30 m basic contract going out and with staff 45 m, and that's just the initial stuff if this goes wrong eeekkk, We can now Expect some unknown names to creep up but two on the list I'm told are Aranguiz and Bravo And the list I Understand is long All scouting activity has ended as would be expected before any incomings start there's going to be a long appraisal of current staff may be not so many out as there would have been under Moyes, IRONMIKE

Well he we go mike, dgs have no choice now they have to back him in the market, or we will still look like a crisis club rolling from mess to mess . My fingers are crossed please let this be us turning a corner COYIS!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 11:04:16
Hi fellas, All activity involving transfers STOPS WH where close to signing Simon Sluga Gk Rijeka, , Sullivan halts it all as we await the ideas of the new man, All previous targets are temporararily scrubbed and sales on hold until its been reviewed, It's now beginning to come to light it was exactly as I said it was Moyes contract to say No to he wouldn't commit a month back obviously trying to lever more power And Sullivan went elsewhere, this was a case of the tail wanting to wag the dog, not going to happen, with Sullivan IRONMIKE

Believable2 Unbelievable0

20 May 2018 12:06:11
I would imagine it would have to stop as we are all sure that mr P will want his choice of players not Sullivan’s . Let’s hope today’s ticking boxes meeting doesn’t go south!

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2018 12:46:28
lets hope sulli is going to listen to pellegrini and will give him the freedom to do what he needs to probably more so than Moyes. I wouldn't be suprised If Pellegrini runs away after a meeting with sullivan. let's hope not! sit back sulli let the man do his thing and enjoy your money being spent wisely creating an exciting new team.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2018 12:57:34
Soynds good to be honest.

Rumour is Pelligrini has already spotted a couple of players he'd like to improve the team.

Any idea who or in what positions Mike?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 13:55:14
I would imagine he'll replace the first 11 lmfao.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 May 2018 14:30:23
That must be a little good news for us fans and for ginger Pele then, just read in ssn that he’s been scrubbed off the ditch list which went to fa today so as new gaffer can decide himself, hope this is true and he sees what we all do, he may be getting slow yeas but he’s a grafter and still a player in my eyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 14:55:20
Without a whole new back 4 ( + squad players) he is still needed!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 17:42:11
Hopefully he's got a few bargains in mind was having a look at the players he's signed he brung in Diego Godin for £800,000.

I'd take yaya toure aswell on a free yes he's old but he's still quality on the ball.

realistically need a CB RB CM AM and a striker could argue we need two CB's and another midfielder.

I think pellegrini will get the best out of lanzini arnautovic Mario (if he signs) fernandes masuaku.

Big transfer window needed some of the youngsters will probably have to make up the squad. Holland Browne must be close Quina could do well with pellegrinis style.

should be an exciting summer add to that the world cup.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 20:20:12
Hello iron, true mate some good things may come, only issue I have is the World Cup, payet was ok till the euros then look what happens lol if lanzini and Arnie both have worldies then we are back in the poop lol lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2018 23:04:16
Good point jason let's hope we can bring in some quality players and pellegrini can persuade our best players to stay its potentially a very good project to be involved in. a repeat of his success at Malaga and villareal would be nice.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2018 10:20:30
Jason B. Austria did not qualify for the WC so Marko will be having a well deserved rest.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 17:11:31
Hi fellas, clearing up this Cascarino bullshit Yes Collins received an E mail which is standard AFTER he had a meeting with DS, who thanked him for his long service, and explained he wouldn't in all likelihood be receiving anew contract DS encouraged him to continue playing if he can a;d then consider coaching badges, when qualified he would be given a chance at WH, I +cannot see what is wrong with that? Collins has already been approached by Norwich, and is considering the possibility, OK perhaps the E mail shouldn't have been sent BUT exactky what else should you do? A testimonial is unlikely for taxation reasons, I know lots of fans wanted him to get another season but where do you stop He was getting let's say very slow He has a nice house at the edge iof Loughton And Epping Forest , and I'm sure we will see him back one day at WH in a different capacity IRONMIKE

Believable1 Unbelievable0

19 May 2018 17:49:41
Thanks mike, the taxation on a testimonial didn’t sound good at all, imagine having one and finding out your in debt! I too hope he’s back soon in any capacity .

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 18:00:06
The taxation bit could have been overcome by donating to charity the income from the testamonial


Mile in that case its a typical PR cock up West Ham should have released the info straight away then rhe whole story would have been accurate.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 19:14:08
Yes maybe an office mess, and it’s partly true about the charity, which could still happen, but ageing happens to us all, and that’s how it’s supposed to be, Sullivan has no blame here We have a new manager coming in with different ideas, we must now look forward IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 19:31:16
Mike it’s all messy but it is what it is . Changing the subject, would love to know who mr P wants to bring in but would hate it if discussion blew the chance of the transfers, but I also hear a DOF might be back on! Pls yes!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 19:43:33
Yes but West ham would still have to hire the stadium for a few days and i´m sure that ain´t cheap. could even expose the club up to a loss! . so i doubt that´ll happen.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2018 20:01:38
True costa, but all very sad mate . Like us all we love the guy and just don’t want to let go . Hello.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2018 09:41:58
Re: testimonial, easiest option would be to ask Aston Villa if they wanted to host it. He spent time there too so would make sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2018 10:31:29
Is that allowed under the rules? Or would Hmrc just see that it was an attempt to dodge any possible revenue to them?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing to stop money being donated to charity - if that happens it is untaxed. Until recently it was tax free to the player, but they now only get 50% of the income from the gate - previously the entrance money was considered to be a gift.}

20 May 2018 13:29:05
Thanks Ed.

Could Yaya Toure follow Pellegrini, I've also seen Buffon would like to come to West Ham, surely not, but knowing Sullivan their both free agents.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

19 May 2018 08:32:15
so we´d continue the Dads Army theme this season as well.! yikes!

Agree3 Disagree0

19 May 2018 08:37:52
I would take both for a year just think. of the teaching buffon could give someone like Trott and all the other young keepers that's priceless and same as yaya for all the young players to learn. of players of that experience and quality and for free I wouldn't turn it down and I reckon personally it would be a good and smart move.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 May 2018 10:29:59
PELLEGRINI will be next west ham manager 100% bookies have him at 1/ 6 I've never known them get it wrong at them odds they have inside info. COYI.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2018 10:41:39
I understand the apprehension of signing two players literally at retirement age in the game, but I also see a lot of reasons that indicate it being a great move.

Signing Pablo Zabaleta last summer gave us experience and consistency in a position where we have been left wanting in recent years.

Yes, Buffon is 40 and has played alongside some outstanding players in his career. But it cannot be over looked that he is an outstanding player himself. His organisation of the defence, his leadership, his shot stopping (even at 40 years of age) is incredible.

The same can be said about Yaya. Yes he is 35 years of age, but he is a beast. He has never been the speediest or the most agile player in the world, but his ability to distribute the ball with both feet, his vision, his experience is by far over and above anything we currently have in the squad.

Personally I would sign both on short term deals, give them coaching roles alongside there playing roles and the younger players coming through would be learning from two of the games greats (especially Buffon) .

You’re right, having a midfield duo of Noble and Yaya would be slow, but they’re two players that bring a wealth of experience, ability and a winning mentality to a team that could use a strong voice with direction leading them.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 May 2018 10:43:04
Sign both players, with some younger players (Leander Dendoncker for example) to be mentored by them. we would have some very talented players in the squad in the years to come.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 13:16:59
Just been announced PELLEGRINI has agreed deal to become new manager of WEST HAM GET IN THERE OUR BEST SIGNING A PREMIER LEAGUE WINNER. COYI.

Baffon is an OAP. Come on lads its a young mans game.

Tbh stevie I wouldn’t knock either, both would be an improvement over some of the players performances ( in same positions ) that we have endured 👍👍👍 they wouldn’t be the future I know but just saying better is better 😉.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 20:19:14
Would take Yaya over Kouyate but I don't know about a 40 year old keeper.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 20:45:14
Buffon is a class keeper better than both we had last season put together even at his age.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 20:53:05
But Rowe he didn’t have have to play behind the team our keepers had too.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 21:03:25
Sorry Jason but lol, buffon is one of the greatest keepers to ever play the game, he back stopped Italy to world and euro championships and your questioning him? Please lol, I'm sure it's a complete long shot but if he did come he would on my opinion be one of the greatest players to ever pull on the claret and blue.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 21:56:03
Id give anything to be as agile as buffon at 40.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2018 08:43:12
We do all realise that the Buffons and Toure´s of this world all play or played with world class players around them! . At West Ham we have to graft for everything or we lose full stop as clearly 50% of our players are at a mediocre standard or old at best as been proven over the last 2 seasons! . We need younger fitter and players with pace as last season that team was far too old as shown on many occasion! . not sure we can afford to carry a 35 year player in midfield, yes he has quality but has he the legs as he won´t have the quality of player he´s used to around him! . You´ll have Noble and him in midfield not the most mobile! . We have to get this right and stop buying journeymen . If you want to sign these 2 players then half the team have to be moved on and upgraded as it´s a disaster waiting to happen!

Agree2 Disagree0

19 May 2018 12:04:44
While I've stated I don't want players over 31 IF we got BUFFON which we won't his knowledge would be invaluable to TROTT and TOURE if he had a good relationship with PELLEGRINI then I think that will happen unless a bigger premiership club comes in which I doubt theyd take a player of that age it will come down to money and if we are willing to give EVRA 75,000 week then it's a no brained for me give him a two year deal. COYI.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 May 2018 11:17:06
Hi fellas, it's Pellegrinis job to say no to now, if he says yets that's it, Benitez meeting will be cancelled , the good thing about this is it's quick , plenty of time to start sorting things out and there's plenty of that to do ! Now we await. IRONMIKE

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 May 2018 12:08:49
are they meeting tomorrow or Sunday?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 12:15:00
Its being reported everywhere MIKE that Pellegrini if flying in on Sunday to sign contract. he did well at Villareal on a shoestring. Wonder what budget they have offered him and I wonder which players are for the chop? Interesting times ahead hopefully as long as SULLIVAN keeps his sticky little fingers out.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 12:24:38
YES Sunday, Pellegrini has been watching WH tapes has two players in mind straight away ? Stand by to shuffle the pack, budget stands at original figure we await his ideas, IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2018 14:22:45
I am not liking this one bit. I get he did well on low budget at Villarreal but that was in 2004 - 2009 I hope it works out I really do and will back him 100 % just don't think this was DGS's first or 2nd or maybe even third choice. who do you think he would bring in?

Agree0 Disagree1

18 May 2018 14:43:49
I think it would be a massive statement to sign Pellegrini. i mean let's be honest that team has been absolutely shocking at times this season and the club IS run like a circus mr a Noble! :) . Do any of us actually think at this time we´re an attractive proposition for anyone looking in? .

If we do manage to get him i think we´re punching above our weight. just hope they back him with a nice war chest and any monies we receive from player sales! . haha! . i just read that last sentence again. haha! what am i smoking! .

Agree2 Disagree0

18 May 2018 18:48:38
I don't know but i want some!

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 18:57:13
Is the orginal figure 60m plus sales? If they were considering benitez who wanted 100m budget surely we should give Pellegrini the same if its available you can't bring him in and skimp, he's a very attacking manager I hope he doesn't neglect the need of quality defenders and understands that its likely he won't get his first choice players especially with sulli negotiating.

hopefully sulli can keep quiet about the budget though let on its 60m when its actually 100 would help us in the market.

now is the time to redeem yourself sulli prove us all wrong please! conversation may help the renewals but action is what will really push us on.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 19:10:53
Rather pellegrini than Rafa to be honest. Just not sure how long term this is, realistically how long can you see him staying even if he does well. I can't see it being more than three seasons tops. Maybe a younger hungrier man would of been more long term and provided the stability we desperately need.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 19:19:40
How long will the contract be for?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 17:49:29
Ya ya toure?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 19:32:25
Forget contracts there not worth the ink. look at conte he still has a year on his contract but obviously wants out and is engineering his exit rather well.
