Can't be Mickey Rooney Ironmike - Sully would feel threatened by his height! Plus he is not injury prone enough for West Ham.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 18:03:01
It will just be another big target we go for all window and fail with and end up getting a last minute player on loan we don't want but are desperate. we need to be more realistic and not waste our time for another window.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 22:17:47
Yup, a Season Ticket enticer, there's no way we are getting someone like Rooney, ridiculous gossip.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2017 16:56:09
Rooney, Defoe, we need a new keeper I wonder if John burridge is available lol, we shouldn't be buying has beens, Rooney deal has got as much of happening as I have of being the next PM and Defoe will be 37 next year I know you need a bit of experience but come on we need potential stars not past stars.

Sully son has Tweeted that, Antonio and Reid out, going to be lock down the hatchets time. The Board pulling in Freebies and Make Dos last 3 windows coming home to roost. Lucky we probably got enough points to stay up, although a relegation could actually be good for the Team and Board, shaking out all the negativity and making the Stadium right.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Mar 2017 14:40:43
Totally agree. We need a shake up from top to bottom.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2017 18:11:40
Definitely don't want to be getting relegated.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2017 22:19:28
If we get relegated it will be hard to get back up,
I don't think we will go down but this is west
Ham remember, failed in Europa, failed in
last summer and January transfer window
now when we are still struggling to keep a
clean sheet we lose 3 major players and 1
definitely for the season, our defence has been
awful for over 1 year now, absolutely disgraceful
defending, I fear now with no pace at all across
the back line!
And to think Liverpool, Everton, arsenal and
spurs still to play they could be cricket scores
and the other games are against teams fighting
to stay up apart from stoke!
Hope this isn't the icing on the cake of an awful
season!
Hopefully the board will change there ways in
Dealing with new signings and stop chatting
sheep about who they are trying to buy.
We are a bit of a laughing stock at moment
and it will be worse if we go down!

{Ed002's Note - The issue for me continues to surround the need for a Director of Football. I would give Harry R a one year contract to (a) sort out the summer transfers this year and (b) to find a good DoF to replace him. I think it would be a fantastic solution and would address the underlying problem of non-footballing board members meddling in the transfer process.}

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Mar 2017 15:33:39
Harry would be a terrible DoF. Part of the role is to negotiate contracts and fees. No club would let him near this sphere of operations.

We need someone with a wide knowledge of young players and European leagues, good judgement, a scouting network and a business brain.

Harry doesn't fill the criteria.

And he would rather be a manager.

Theres been a few rumours about this Muriel kid at Sampdoria and ill be blatantly honest i don't know a lot about him. I checked out he's highlight reel on youtube which normally makes a player look like a superstar and he don't look all that. Am i missing something?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Mar 2017 12:46:34
YES you are missing something? Did you read last weeks posts? He's a player! Regards IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 16:16:46
hi fellas, Di Canio and WH trying to lure MURIEL from Sampadoria and are making him number one target in front of Perez Defoe and others this will COST A PACKET it appears that WH want TWO forwards NOT one IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure of the involvement of Di Canio Mike but Luis Muriel is certainly one of the three strikers West Ham has been watching in Italy.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Mar 2017 16:31:27
Hi, ED Di Canio is involved here ( albeit not officially ) perhaps DGS are losing faith in others, so they are using one of our old favourites to perhaps grease the wheels re player movements, , AS far as Di Canio is concerned he may see this as the way to get into a WH job one way or the other, we shall see what occurs regards IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I know who the two people are who were in Italy to look at the three players for West Ham and Di Canio was not mentioned by the one I spoke to. Also Di Canio is no longer welcome at a number of grounds in Italy due to his extreme political views - although he remains favourite at one particular club.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 17:09:16
Whilst we are chatting what's the current situation with Dres Martins another WH interest I understand I was under the impression that Marseille were top
Of the queue has this now changed? IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - Another one of the three MIke. Napoli want Dries Mertens to stay at the club but he is hankering after a move to England and is stalling over a new contract. The sides interested in Dries Martens are Newcastle (who have already had a discussion about him) and West Ham who have been watching him. I have suggested that Everton should look to renew prior interest.

Marseille are not in the picture at all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 18:30:20
What do we think the chances of us getting either Muriel or Mertens are? Would just like to know if it's a pipe dream or a very real possibility, or Perez for that matter.

{Ed002's Note - I can tell you where there is interest but I have no way to sensibly quantify the chances of them joining. Muriel would likely draw interest from Champions League clubs. Mertens is keen on a move to England and West Ham might be able to put together an attractive package. Deportivo La Coruna has said that they would be interested in taking Lucas Perez back to replace Moreno whose loan will be up in the summer. However, last season was a peak in an otherwise pretty average journeyman career for Perez and I am surprised Arsenal did not see sense and signed him. Mario Mandzukic (the third player West Ham has been looking at in Italy) is a viable option - but there is interest from Besiktas and China.}

I see lawro has gone against us winner once again for some reason I'm sure he hates us. if we manage to get atleast one of those it would be great improvement, I've heard that we like mitrovic of Newcastle and we could go in with 10 mill bid.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 22:56:03
Mitrovic is NOT amongst the top choices at present, He COULD come into the picture I IF others fail, OR if Carroll leaves IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2017 07:52:41
morning all!

Mike does the rumours of Carroll to the Toon have any legs? I love the big man but 16 games a season is just not good enough anymore.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2017 11:01:44
WH in a sort of quandary with AC first obviously they cannot let him go without replacement secondly if they don't extend contract soon the player himself may try to run his contract down THEN if we don't have a big man up front it demands a change of style without options THERE is a lot to consider both for the club and the player ALL players are transient and IF the right deal comes along then yes he can go BUT there have been NO serious enquiries from Newcastle as of this time. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2017 11:15:15
Thanks as always Mike! I think we will have a new manager in place for July transfer window! I think Bilic has dropped the ball this year! Love the man' passion but he is too stubborn and tactically inept to take us on to the next level imho.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2017 11:59:02
The next few games will tell the story on this one IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2017 17:43:30
I think working for that tight fisted Board who give him freebies and Make do players, Bilic is a Saint.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Mar 2017 17:06:29
Hiya ED have we given up on CAFU from ludogrets and how strong is the apparent interest in VERDI from Italy.

{Ed002's Note - Ludogorets had previously said that Leicester and Aston Villa had enquired after Jonathan Cafu but Leicester have held initial talks now and have made an enquiry about whether he would likely be eligible for a work permit. Lazio also approached Ludogrets but considered the €10M asking price too high. They said that although they knew of scots from other sides attending games no other clubs had spoken with them.

Verdi has only been at Sampdoria for 6 months or so and I am not aware of West Ham making any approach for him although Mike has said WHU are trying to get something done.}

Hi fellas, the other player Di CANIO is pushing is Clement GRENIER currently on loan at Roma from Lyon, IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Mar 2017 19:35:42
Seems like he could be a decent player from what I've heard, but who do you think he would replace, Obiang? Kouyate? Noble? And from what I've heard isn't he supposed to be a bit injury prone? However don't know a lot about so would love to hear back.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 21:28:30
Grenier would be great buy but will this be another player we go for and get rejected and have to keep upping the price and then before u know it we have wasted so much time chasing him we end up getting a loan player in who is no good but we were desperate, a right back and striker are two main priorities and yea it would be a dream to get mandzucic in and hope bilic can persuade him but I just don't see it, Perez does look the most likely but we will have to pay a lot but I still think sturridge is our main target. the board just need to get recruitment right for once and give us at least one good transfer window.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 23:41:26
Clement Grenier is another injury prone player. He has only played 204 minutes THIS SEASON due to injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2017 15:56:13
Rather than listen to dicanio maybe dgo should stop getting too involved with transfers.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 14:55:14
Hi fellas. You may all remember my post about a month past when I mentioned that DI CANIO was pushing PEREZ towards WH, I can now confirm that WH have approached Arsenal for that forward, DI CANIO is acting a a go between here, WE shall wait and see what occurs here he is also pushing another player I will try to find out his identity shortly After a long absence he is becoming matey again with DGS MIND YOU, perhaps, he might fancy a run out against Leicester age is just a number apparently! IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Mar 2017 16:14:29
Maybe he would like to be manager one day Mike, haha, they could employ him to coach the forwards?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 18:40:48
He's got to be better than some of the rubbish we've been fielding. At least he has passion, fight and determination unlike what we are seeing currently.

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Mar 2017 11:50:35
We're being heavily linked with Mandzukic but so are Besiktas. what's the betting we end up with a striker from Besiktas and Mandzukic goes to them. edin dzeko would be another shout IF Roma would sell. Give them Feghouli and some cash if necessary and they give us Dzeko (Never going to happen but having seen some of our business worth a cheeky shout)

Believable0 Unbelievable1

14 Mar 2017 12:39:06
I cannot see Mandzukic or Dzeko or anyone remotely like those players joining West Ham and even still, look at the players they have feeding them. We have an underperforming Noble, Cresswell, Ayew and Snodgrass. Along side a hot and cold Lanzini and no RB to hit the wings. The problem at our club doesn't sit with the striker situation alone I can tell you that for free.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 18:37:04
I totally agree with you steveniron. Furious West ham fans have vented their anger and frustration at David Golds most recent post where he is stating we are still aiming for 8th!

The finger is being pointed firmly at the board and the manager for poor summer recruitment (again) and poor player selection and tactics.

Its time we got someone who is willing to shake this organisation up. We seem to be strolling through the rest of the season and players already looked resigned to the fact that we have nothing left to play for and have holiday heads on. We say this every year, but its time to clear our the players who aren't either in future plans or are not performing!

For gods sake, how long have we all been ranting about the RB position and the form of noble for instance. Because of his own ego and stubborn ness we have players played out of position which is having detrimental effect on the squad. Why send Martinez out on loan when we QUITE CLEARLY were short of strikers. Ayew was in Africa. Carroll and Sakho injured so we played Antonio.

Why are we constantly moving players around to fit positions they are not used to. In TURKEY it might work, but it won't in the premier league against world class forwards and wingers. ITS A JOKE AND ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Mar 2017 16:41:13
Seems the press are reporting that we are lining up sturridge to replace CARROLL? Thoughts anyone?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

13 Mar 2017 18:25:21
Doesn't make sense to me! Replacing one injury prone striker with another?!?!

Agree2 Disagree1

13 Mar 2017 18:39:16
If he stays fit he's a great finisher, and as long as Slav plays him as a striker and not right back, if he's good enough for the likes of Milan and PSG to be looking at him then he's got to be good enough for us.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Mar 2017 19:09:47
Could certainly be a great big man little man combo.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2017 01:36:33
Sturridge would be good signing but it seems we are after mandzukic which could be good for us if we can get him and pay his wages. zabaleta is also on radar for a free transfer now he would be great. adrians contract looks like it's getting extended so getting a new keeper might not happen even though we are linked to hart who I would love us to get been really impressive with Torino and could be impressive for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2017 19:53:39
When Carroll plays he is a beast. as fans we all know his injury record and should be over it. We paid the money to sign him, pay his weekly wage to do the best job he can. Get off his back he still is our best forward and am glad he is still with us long may it continue. Love the big man. Irons Irons.

Believable5 Unbelievable1

04 Mar 2017 12:34:45
NO QUESTION he is at present, which doesn't say much for the other forwards, we have at present does it! IRONMIKE.

04 Mar 2017 18:51:03
Agreed with him sako and calleri it's not exactly potent. Front line needs an overhaul. What about iheanacho not sure how much even if city let him go, bathshuyai potential loan and braithwaite £10m?

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Mar 2017 23:10:10
No chance of the citeh lad. carroll is way better than the other 2, point the original poster made is that caroll is top draw when fit which he is.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Mar 2017 21:53:57
Tonight's game told me what I already knew SNODGRASS is just an ok premiership player NOBLE just has to go LANZINI played so deep he was nearly a holding midfielder, Fernandez should play more sell FEGHOULI to Roma for 12 Million and why oh why did we apparently not sell CAROLL for 32 million and also KOUYATE ain't a R/ B or a c/ B so sort it out and also FONTE was poor too so all in all I'm pissed off.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 08:15:52
Absolutely agreed. Carroll is a beast don't you know lmfao?

The problem is that we have players who like to play with the ball at their feet and we got no real creativity in midfield. Yeah, Lanzini is ok but not the midfield linchpin that can run a game. Carroll if not injured forces a team to play one dimensional and we went through that era with Allardyce. Its also about time that Noble was shown the door cause he has made far too many mistakes. How many times can a player be so sloppy and get away with it. Feghouli looked lost and your telling me that we were offered £12m for him and £32m for Carroll and we said NO? I don't a believe a word of it
Lot of changes need to be made in the summer that's for sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 15:32:30
I don't care what anyone says but when we played at the Boleyn we worked harder and played better against big teams even if we win or lost and by now these players should be used to our new stadium but they don't show the grit, Carroll is our best striker and is great but if we did get offered 32 mill we must be mad not taking it and feghouli just needs to go only one we missed was Antonio but we need a massive kick up ass and show more grit and then get someone who will score goals in summer and have a clear out.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 18:20:00
Didn't u know that Sullivan believes we are two players away from being a very very good side? Which two then? Noble is crap same as feghouli and kouyate our strongest attacking midfielder is not a right back but we still play him there curiously when we have but am on the bench. Am not convinced with goalie and forwards we all know about?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 19:09:31
We just lost 2-1 to the best team in the league we weren't disgraced actually we played pretty well, feghonli is bound to struggle without a proper RB behind and kouyate is much better in midfield but come on we were not that bad last night we don't have the money to compete with chelski and citeh it's just that simple.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 21:25:51
Yea we didn't play that bad but it's not like the Boleyn we showed much more grit and determination even when we was 2-0 down or something, I know it takes time to adjust to new stadium but surely they should be used to it and we need that fortress back and make teams not want to come to us, the summer will be hard because Sullivan will go for players that we know won't come to us or demand massive wages that we can't afford. I recon we will go back in for bacca or lacezette, but just got this feeling that sturridge is our main target.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Mar 2017 22:12:08
Its not a football stadium, so it will never be a fortress.

"2 players short of a very very good Team. " Trouble is Sully thinks Wealdstone are a very very good Team, they could probably beat us at the moment on that big pitch. Accrington nearly did it, Astra did do it.

Sully comes out with this nonsense to get the season ticket money in.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2017 12:59:21
We are def more than 2players short, we need a rb, lb cover a striker and another play maker plus decent cover from bench so more than 2 and they need to start training on the pitch more and get used to it there's no excuse about the size they get paid to play and paid well they need more grit and show us fans that they believe.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2017 19:40:48
Agree with the view on Noble, he should be on the bench with Kouyate and Obiang in cm
Carrol has to go in the summer, try and get Sakho back fit and firing again and buy the best striker we can
Feghouli has to go,12mil, snatch their hand off
I read on C and H that income this year could be 250mil, well the Dave's have to invest in the team during the summer in order that we move forward.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2017 13:29:46
Just read that BILIC thought SNODGRASS was excellent against Chelsea, come on slaven who you trying to kid he was average at best as to what I knew and have stated in recent blogs of mine he's just a very average premiership player and not what we should be pursuing if we want to progress I understand this season is about consolidating our premiership status but with buisness done in the summer he'd just be a squad player used in case of injurys which he will then be asking for a move to which we won't get nowhere near what we paid so in my opinion waste of money.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2017 22:15:49
I believe sagna Will be our rb next season I hope we go for ox chamberlain and if I'm honest I wouldn't mind us taking a chance on Andre grey but I recon our main striker targets is sturridge and lacezette, tosun of besiktas will be another target bilic really rates him.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2017 13:16:29
we can target lacazette as much as we want but there's no way we will get him, the ox haven't even seen us linked with him to be honest apart from fans saying they like him, sagna would be ok short term he's still got plenty of pace.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Mar 2017 15:48:50
Nasty rumour going round that we are again interested in Benteke and Bathshuyai. will be looking for a loan move this summer with West Ham interested (amongst others I would imagine).

AC to be sold? If this is true and the deal is likely to be agreed very soon, then is Monday night ( if fit ) Andy's last game for us? If this is true, then what do we do? We look a less dangerous side up front with out him and who do we chase as a replacement? Or is sturridge deal already been done? So many questions lol.

I agree mate, stories about China but why would he go now? Why would he drag his family and a new born all the way there? Must complete nonsense.

26 Feb 2017 11:54:46
Knowing our owners I would not be surprised if they sell ac. I reckon they will try and get Defoe in the summer when Sunderland go down.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2017 13:02:15
If Carroll went to China before their window shuts, then not getting a striker in January looks even more ridiculous, it's got to be a load of garbage,

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2017 13:11:37
Just had another thought, maybe our owners are thinking of offloading Carroll to China for big money and getting Berbatov in until end of season as he's out of contract and would be free, it might be how their minds are working, wouldn't put it past them.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Feb 2017 07:50:22
Let's sell him and take the money, his injury record is never going to get better. I don't believe he is off before Tuesday but in the summer it's time for him to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 15:45:10
Agreed and at £90k a week he is taking the mick. He has spent more time on the treatment table than on the field so time for him to go. Let Sunderland get relegated and get Defoe. I still like Braithwaite who is another that can take punishment but above all we HAVE TO pay the money and GET A DECENT RB. How many times do we have to go over the same thing.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 17:44:10

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 20:02:15
haha defoe he's 35 in the summer and a judas have a day off hardly the way forward is it?

we have byram as a RB but bilic seems determined to play players out of position instead.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 20:37:11
35 or not Defoe is still scoring goals for a poor Sunderland side and he don't have glass legs and isn't going to spend his time on the treatment table!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 21:57:37
I'd rather Carroll and he's injuries than giving defoe another easy payday we need to look forward not to players that have shown no loyalty before, I'd rather give calleri or fletcher a chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2017 23:48:22
Byram ain't good enough! AC has to go! Unrealiable. The team need a solid striker who they can rely on week in week out to spearhead the attack. We get a bit of rythum going with AC playing a certain way for 3 or 4 games and then he's normally out for a month or two. Ridiculous! Personally i'd have a big overhaul in the summer with something like this-

In
Braithwaite
Defoe
Biabiany
Cafu
Coric
Tielemans
Willems
Malcuit
Kalinic

Out
Carroll
Sakho
Calleri
Valencia
Tore
Nordtveit
Masuaku
Collins
Adrian.

You just need to look at the goals Defoe is scoring this season at his age, ibrahimovic is the same 35 and has scored 26 goals it don't matter there age it's the way they look after themselves and I recon Defoe could be 40 and score more goals than most players.

Big overhauls didn't really work last summer woz I'd rather sign 3 top players than 8 mediocre ones like last summer, and byram is a better RB than kouyate or Antonio is but he still don't get a game, if we are going to start buying 35 year oldso we aren't really going to progress are we? Plus we just got rid of payet who showed no loyalty and you wanna get defoe back who was just as bad.

Personally REDROBBO2 I wouldn't mind us speaking to Southampton for Shane Long or my preference Jay Rodriguez. Michy Bathshuyai would be a decent addition also but above all we have got to get a good right back or two.

Yes, think the squad is broadly there, jsust need 3 Proper Players, not these freebies / Not Good Enoughs that Sully gives us!

The 9 players I suggested getting in are obviously just examples, but I would love to hear reasons why we should keep any of the 9 players I have suggested getting out of the club. Please if anyone thinks any one of these players is worth keeping?

Make that 10 players out. I forgot about Fletcher. Not good enough.

Hmmm, interesting? Tried to make a case for these but I couldn't so time to offload and get a flippin RIGHT BACK

Carroll - Taking the club for a ride
Sakho - Ditto
Calleri - Rubbish
Valencia - Lazy spends his life on the ground and waste of £12m
Tore - Garbage send him back
Nordtveit - One of the worst buys in our history and we've had some shockers. What were the scouts watching when they recommended him
Matsuaku - Rubbish
Collins - Too old and half a yard of the pace but great stalwart
Adrian - Makes too many mistakes.

Agree with all except:

Calleri - not given a chance, he is 23 and was in Argentine Olympic squad. Deserves a proper chance in first team.

Masuaku - again, only 23 remember him looking good, give him another season as back up to Cressie

Carroll - we WILL buy another striker in summer, Carroll as back up would be amazing (plus I cannot see anyone buying him)

Otherwise all good - personally think fatty tore is far worse than nordshite who, even though played out of position, has not looked up to pace of the prem.

I seriously think our scouts need to be looked at because some of the rubbish they identify is shocking! Go get the Monaco scouts cause they spot some gems. Also director of footie would be very handy. Trevor Brooking would be an ideal candidate lol.

id Keep masuaku, caller and fletcher think all have hardy game time and are young enough to get better also I think carroll enough to keep

we don't have to replace all those players, Valencia isn't part the squad anyway tore hasn't played for most of the season and reece burke can replace Collins

personally I don't think either GK is good enough to move us on but both are decent as back ups

so i'd still say 3 top players a striker, a RB and a GK is enough.

It's been said that the board asked an agent to get offers for Carroll from China clubs so does this mean he is not in our plans at end of season. I still think sturridge is our main target.

{Ed002's Note - West Ham would love to have a 100% fit Andy Carroll but that has never been the case - which begs the question why would they be keen on Daniel Sturridge?}
