JAOA FELIX. EXACTLY how much do you want? Say WH Well it's only a phone call but at least we are asking. IRONMIKE.

Goodness Mike, what I have read about him Juve, Real and Man u are looking at around £105m, it looks like he is the next Pele Cruyff, Maradona, Ronaldo, Messi and George Parris rolled into one.

I think WH response after the phone call to Benfica would have been. "OK, no need to swear we were only asking. thanks bye!

{Ed002's Note - I would love to hear more about this "phone call" from West Ham given what Cordeiro has said.}

Best we leave things as they are And with the greatest respect I do not feel the need to vindicate myself to you, WJ are a small club, with perhaps the greatest set of supporters why can’t they have a stab at getting a quality player , , it is of course extremely unlikely we all know that. Don’t ask don’t get. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - Just let me explain this Mike. There was West Ham interest in João Felix of Benfica and an enquiry was made after Thomas Hengen identified the player on behalf of David Moyes. The enquiry was first made after DM had left and MP had joined and confirmed he would be interested. This was in late June last year and Benfica explained he was not for sale (at least whilst they worked on a new contract). Subsequently Felix verbally agreed a new deal and a €120M termination clause included - and that priced him, far far outside of what West Ham can afford as it would need to be paid in cash. Currently they are looking at a way to further increase the termination clause, which would need to be paid in cash, to a much higher figure - but they are constrained from doing so by an FFP issue. The enquiries were not limited to WHU but several other sides also approached his agent and the club. There has been nothing yesterday, or today, or recently from West Ham - it was last summer. Right now there is interest in him from a number of sides - five have been named by Cordeiro.

So try not to mislead the supporters - at least if you are going search the site where on August 1 you shared about João Felix "bid going in for 3M for him".}

I POST what I hear, you will notice that two other sites are now reporting the same thing Albeit much later on I do not set out to mislead Anybody PARTICULARLY our own WH fans, IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what they "other two sites" are but perhaps they also heard something misquoted about Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, West Ham, Monaco and Milan making enquiries last summer and also thought this was yesterday or today? Perhaps you could go to these other sites and correct them with the actual situation I explained in my previous post?}

Why should I involve myself in the affairs of others ? The WH supporters no doubt may or might wish to inform you of the other sites PERHAPS the all knowing oracle such as yourself should actually contact them yourself and put them right As I said what goes on elsewhere ( save one site ) . Is nothing to do with me IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in the other sites - I am just trying to protect the supporters from being misled by Twitter or whatever BS of the non-knowing Oracle.}

POOR little WH fans being misled, joke. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - Not a joke actually. What you have posted is yet again misinformed BS - and the fans will believe you - in which case you would have misled them again.Perhaps if you concentrated your efforts in finding something truthful or ask rather than spend your time looking to abuse me the site would be a great deal more useful.}

AND perhaps you should stop pretending to be the ORACLE. Because you are definetly not. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - Where have I said any such thing? Last time you shared your comprehensive BS about Piatek and I had to stop you misleading the WHU fans yet again, you also took the opportunity to abuse and lie about me. Now you are doing it again. Go and read the BS you also wrote about THIS SAME STORY on August 1 last year, may be that will be a little reminder. I don't care if you don't think what I explained about Piatek and Milan being true last time, nor do I care if you don't believe me know about the approach for Joao Felix not being yesterday or today - and nor do I care that you are unable to comprehend that you already discussed this matter last August when you thought he played for Porto: 3M - bid gone in!!!!}

You are the one who did the multiple swearing on this site and then deleted it and made yourself look a real fool I don't NEED that and you can further check I have NEVER sworn at anybody on this site So go ahead and check that out whilst there is no doubting your intelligence, take care you may injure yourself falling off your high horse. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I have not sworn, not mentioned swearing nor have I deleted anything. I have not accused you of swearing. Apart from this constant lying of yours, there really does seem to be something amiss. There is clearly an issue that you should look to address.}

Ed02 I seen your post where you did a swear.

{Ed002's Note - In this thread? Wow, you must also be deluded.}

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, having to deal with vegetable matter like you as well means the site will become unusable. All I tried to do was explain politely what the actual situation is. Now we have to suffer ignorant half-wits like you getting involved.}

Shame they didn’t do the business in August but now not a hope. Don’t know if calls were made now or not but if they were they would have been a pure waste of time.

I for one appreciate both your posts.
Ironmike i am sure says what he hears and I am fine with that, it does not have to be considered misleading, I always take every rumour with a pinch of salt, wherever it comes from. There is every chance this (like a lot of paper rumours) came from a comment that may have actually referred to something from last year, and was not recent. However it may not have been passed to Mike with these specific and how i'm interprets what he hears is his own.
However, I especially appreciate Ed002's comments afterwards that add more context to things, and really value this. The whole point of a rumours board is that people can comment if they know something different about a situation.
No need for all the back and forth guys, us readers just appreciate the info you both provide.

As with Nickinho, with one caveat, the loss of Mike led to 3/ 4 days without any *rumours* towards the end of the transfer window - not a good idea if this site is to work/ gain more followers.
I don't have time to scroll through numerous sites just to get my fix so glad Mike gets his info, wherever it comes from. I wait for eds confirmation though before getting my hopes up.

If Ironmike posts something and it’s old news or not true makes no difference to me. It’s about entertaining reading and hope. 👍. Even rumours that are true often end up with a disappointing outcome whereby WH don’t buy the player or something happens to scupper a deal. Ironmike post on mate!

Ironmike. Don’t get so antagonised by things. One cannot criticise ed002 for his comments when yours are just as bad right? We want to see rumours posted and we want to see rumours questioned and we all need to take it on the chin when we have been pulled up about an error we have made. As an editor on this site, I believe ed002 has the right to advise, clarify and even question certain posts. Otherwise what’s his role on this site?
