I am amazed at how many of you seemed clued up about all these foreign players but of course have varying opinions, I haven't heard of most of them😂 Ok so some may. Be press talk but at least we can rely on Mikes info, thanks Mike for all the great potential bids you keep us informed with👍 This just shows the pulling power of MP and his knowledge of players abroad, if we sign another 4 as he wants, we will have a transformed team, how bloody exciting is that making it for us?

Dont just watch the epl.

I think we will have a fantastic chance of staying up this year.


3.) 03 Jul 2018 17:12:33
It is exciting yes, but remember we could have a lot of players that will need time to adjust to the prem . So let’s not get too excited, this won’t be an overnight transformation we need to balance our expectations with a bit of patience also :)

sky, bt sports eurosport all help.
heck even itv had bundesliga highlights.

Arnie👍 We all have our opinions, but I am staggered that some posts on here are actually advocating that we should sell Arnie😠😠 Do they actually want to see our most exciting prized forward sold, do they not want to see him terrifying the opposition and listening to the London stadium roar him on with excitement each time he has the ball or, are they turning into D. S's, profit, for who? Selling your prized asset to me is UNFORGIVEABLE, when there are 60,000 supporters paying to hopefully see our ⚒ actually become a team to be feared playing? Ask Arnie to put it in writing that he wants a transfer, then at least we know that is what he wants? He will be a small fish in a big pool with massive pressure and demands on his shoulders giving the massive impression he made with us, they will expect the same at ManU, but it's also another big payday as well, which must be hard to refuse as a football mercenary, can't see his agent advising any different😄££ However I just knew this would happen and I guessed it would be moneybags ManU, jealous no, just effing annoyed if it happens, hope ManU win f-- all next season😂😂😂.

I whole heartedly agree, 100% correct we should not be selling our best player for any price we are not in a position where we have to sell. Build a team around your best players don't sell them to become bench warmers at Man Utd.


2.) 09 Jun 2018 09:43:22
Chelmsford is spot on, get rid of all the bad signings but let's keep our best.


3.) 09 Jun 2018 09:55:08
I'd only be tempted If we can get rashford in return, can't see it though.

I think your right we seem to have enough in the coffers to build a great team around arnie and that is what we should do. If he wants to go then so be it. but if we keep him and get the likes of anderson pastore wilshire we will be a exciting force.


4.) 09 Jun 2018 09:56:25
spot on Chelmsford selling your best player so our owners can pocket more money for them self is pathetic.


5.) 09 Jun 2018 10:13:40
¨football mercenary¨? i think that´s a bit strong describing Arnie as that. he was at Stoke from 2013-2017 and at Werder Bremen for 3 years before that! . think he was quite loyal to Stoke to be fair! .
If Man u do come in for him you can´t really blame him for wanting to play at a massive club and in europe at the tail end of his career!


6.) 09 Jun 2018 10:45:19
Agreed costa, if he leaves who can blame him, I’m greatfull for what he has done for us, and yes the money would be great for bringing in more strength . Be sad to see him leave if it happens but let’s see what happens.


7.) 09 Jun 2018 10:45:50
Good post Chelmsford and I agree but let's look a big players other teams have sold and are flourishing, Courtinho, suarez (Liverpool), Ronaldo (Man Utd), Bale (Spurs), to name just a few and these players were probably their clubs best players at the time, Arnautovic only played well for six months of the season and to make 40-50mil profit is something to consider and re invest in a couple of players 4 or 5 years younger, but don't get me wrong I would prefer him to stay I'm just looking at it from the clubs point of view.


8.) 09 Jun 2018 11:01:45
What I meant in my above post is, it hasn't done those clubs any harm in selling their best players.


9.) 09 Jun 2018 11:11:31
That's because they've all reinvested where will do as usual and keep it.


10.) 09 Jun 2018 11:46:58
It is fine saying we shouldn't sell Arnautovic.

However, if he wants to go then what should the club do? Hold onto him and risk him becoming upset and downing tools like Payet did.

We could have got £50-60 million for Payet in the summer then by the time January rolled around he went for £25 million.

The players have the power these days so to use the Arnautovic situation to try and throw more shade on the board is not actually realising where the power now lies in the majority of football transfers.


11.) 09 Jun 2018 17:59:58
Costa/ Jason, I am not calling Arnie a criminal or saying I wouldn’t do the same, the word mercenary is usually applied to a soldier fighting for money not ethics, it was used in the loose sense as a person that moves on for more money, I fail to see that, that won’t be the case, we are all or have been mercenary in our own way at some time! Yes we will as a club have made a massive profit, but look at from another way, the club have taken a risk as well, when the player signs a contact, they will expect to be looked after in case of a substantial injury say? but we want exciting players and we may be selling our best, but no good hanging on to a player that wants to move on, but what a short lived partnership it will have turned out to be?


12.) 10 Jun 2018 06:51:41
These days its hard to keep players if they want to leave, i would be surprised if any player would want to leave WH with MP coming in and with the rumours of the players we are trying for. Our biggest worry is Lanzini being injured We now need a play maker. We must sell to get the players we require [but not Arnie] unless he wants to go. Get Carroll off the books a good player but another sick note problem. We have done gt. business getting Fredricks in we need a playmaker a CB and a holding mid field player, but before that get rid of the dross.


13.) 11 Jun 2018 12:14:29
Is everybody on the same planet as me if we could get £65 million for a nearly 30 year old I'd drive him there for nothing we could get 3 very good players with that or line YODA SULLIVANS pockets more. COYI.


14.) 11 Jun 2018 22:59:25
If UTD were serious about ARNIE I'd say straight swap for RASHFORD and i'd be cheeky and ask for SHAW in the deal although if MOURINHIO sold RASHFORD he'd be lynched by the UTD FAITHFUL. COYI.


 

 

10 May 2018 13:03:07
Think D. M. is now doing some self promotion and marketing himself reading his comments today! Saying he had offers in January to manage another Prem club, was said possibly from Stoke as Coates the owner was a D. M. fan, would there actually be a choice to be made between sunny Stoke and also missing out on a possible £m plus bonus, come on! He wants to manage a top 6-8 side, think he forgot he was at ManU😂.

Chelmsford1944

1.) 10 May 2018 14:52:24
He has had an offer from Stoke, would imagine he is trying to force the dildos hands.


2.) 10 May 2018 18:40:29
It’s all posturing and positioning, Moyes and Sullivan are as bad as each other! Having said that, Moyes is right that the Club need to show they have the ambition and are prepared to back a manager financially.


 

 

05 May 2018 08:36:17
We have a golden chance today for 3 pointe surely? According to team news for
Leicester, No Schmichael, Albrighton, Ndidi, Simpson, Huth, Chilwell, Okazaki, they have nothing to play for, they have the hump with Puel, all sounds a bit familiar! first goal from us can turn the home crowd, seize the opportunity and take the game to them from the K. O. COYI ⚒⚒⚒⚒ just pray I can watch MOTD tonight with a smile on my face, 3 points will see us safe if Everton do us a favour and beat Southampton in the evening K. O. Fingers crossed🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻.

Chelmsford1944

1.) 05 May 2018 08:59:27
Chelmsford, it could also work against us, if Leicester bring in squad players or youth players they wil want to show what they can do and turn it on against a nervous West ham, also Mahrez and Vardy could be too quick for our defense, but I agree we have to take the game to them and attack them as when the ball is in their half of the pitch it's not in the back of our net.


2.) 05 May 2018 09:21:02
Stevie, yes certainly there is always the opposite that can happen, was just saying no better chance than today! But it’s all up for us to do the usual WH thing and blow it which in all honesty I am half thinking will happen, just trying to keep the faith😁 I feel if Jock stays, I smell that Fellaini might be heading our way to top his pension up, I bloody hope not! Decent s few years ago maybe, by past his sell by date, which means yes we will get him!


 

 

30 Dec 2017 10:33:19
Now apparently we are showing an interest. In Shelvey🤣 Bloody hell how many more are we interested in? I would be well pleased to have him, bit hot headed, but a really good signing for me, also a W. H. Fan in his early days I heard, so come back down to the Southern Riviera, bloody cold up there in Geordieland and a strange accent😀 Also Moyes is willing to give Oxford a chance, must be good news, that's if he wants to return? Quite intriguing who we will end up? Also, Antonio, always a first choice for me, please get some weight off Ant, we really need you! Such a grafter😄👍⚒⚒.

Chelmsford1944

1.) 30 Dec 2017 17:32:12
Really like Shelvey and I think he is just what we need, he can see a pass and gets stuck in. Yes he is a potential red card but we have had a few of these over the years and most of them the fans warmed to.


2.) 30 Dec 2017 18:44:54
Love how Karren is slagging off Snodgrass as being a bad buy. Last time I checked she was the MD, so who is more responsible for this transfer.

I would also say that slagging off players "Payet was a flawed character", "Snodgrass and Fonte are bad buys". well they don't enamour Top Class players to sign for West Ham. I would suggest the opposite, part of the reason we don't have good Windows.

Reading this morning we are apparently 7/ 1 outsiders to sign Jack Butland😧 Quite surprised at that as I thought with the arrival of Fabianski, he was inline for the number 1 slot or to give Adrian some competition, I suspect Adrian wants to go, can't see us getting Butland depending on who else is in for him, real decent keeper though, think we would have 2 really good keepers with the pair, but Stoke I suspect are going to want at least £20m for him! If that is the situation with Adrian wanting to go, we cannot have Trott as a back up keeper yet! Outfield surely we have enough signings providing Arnie stays, good deal if we could get Butland in👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Chelmsford1944

1.) 19 Jul 2018 08:52:20
I think as we near the end of the window players like Butland will be more likely to come to us. Liverpool have signed Alisson so unless Chelsea sign him then I don’t see him having a better option than us.


2.) 19 Jul 2018 11:04:37
kaneob, agree with you as the window nears closure the choices with players are more limited, but think you may be rather biased saying he won’t have a better option than😂😂 May tend to agree up to a point but there are families to consider and wags will have a big influence on decisions, wherever he goes he will be on big money, none of them will struggle financially! Some bigger clubs looking for another keeper can easily step in if a previous interest falls through! London is not everybody’s favourite destination!


3.) 19 Jul 2018 12:31:44
Chelmsford, I agree but all the top clubs in the prem already have top GKs. Butland needs to be playing prem football or he will relinquish the England no 1 spot and arguably the no 2 spot too. I can’t see any options for him but Chelsea and West Ham. Unless there are any surprise movements elsewhere.


 

 

18 Jul 2018 16:02:01
Well, well, well, what a surprise, rainy Manchester have called for first refusal, why o why I am not surprised😂 would we want to sell a 100% proven asset to have to scamper around the market now for a striker when we have the best one here already, Arsenal phone to say Welbecks available, what a coincidence, sorry chaps I 'm a big conspiracy theorist and they'rs One going on here, I just hope when he goes and he will go, they get as Warrington states £40m for him, Welbeck for me again as Warrington says another lame player, Carroll, Reid, Wilshere, Welbeck, my god how many other long term limpers do we want to take on?

Chelmsford1944

1.) 18 Jul 2018 16:29:04
Arnie to the Mancs only if they pay a fortune and take Hugill and Snodgrass with him.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 16:54:27
£40m for Arnie is no where near enough. I for one would be extremely disheartened if this turns out to be true, selling the best player in the team is not how you build for the future. It could also set a dangerous precedent that if you have half a good season with us we will just sell you on at the first chance.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 18:21:14
Wh4ever, Arnie to me is priceless, but realistically at 29 unless we put a valuation on him to put people off even he on a business level is fast approaching an age when sell on values will drop dramatically within a year or so, don’t think the Manc’s or anybody else will pay much more than £30m for him, pointless selling to buy another so called goal scorer when we know he does it for us, only other reason is for book balancing imo? Wenger at Arsenal was wary of giving anybody over 30 a long term contract! As another poster on here said, let’s hope Arnie can see we might have something special happening at our club and wants to be part of a new team team building side fit for Europe and some success next season providing he and his family feel settled here?


4.) 18 Jul 2018 19:06:43
I totally agree with what you say Chelmsford believe me I do, I just look at how integral he is to our squad and think "can we guarentee that can be replaced". Swansea were able to get £45M i think it was for Sigurddson last season when the player was clearly making noises for wanting to leave. He is one year younger than Arnie and was Swansea's most important player look at them now. I am not saying we will be doomed if we sell him but for me it sends a negative message. If his head is turned then there is little we can do about it, we all agree on that. Hopefully like you say he will buy into what is trying to be built at West Ham.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 21:19:07
Wh4ever, yes agree mate, Sigurddson and quite a few others look a revelation playing for some clubs, attract lots of attention, then look quite ordinary when they move! I thought he was fantastic at Swansea all the time he was there and was I bemused why Spurs sold him, at Everton he’s anonymous! Hope Arnie feels how valued he is but can become another squad player at the Manc's?


6.) 19 Jul 2018 00:25:22
Arnie will always start for us if he stays fit and sharp. That would not be the case at Mancsville.


7.) 19 Jul 2018 12:01:44
Selling Arnie now would be great financial business, but it would have to be more than what Everton paid for Sigurdson. £50m plus is the MINIMUM and he is worth every penny! The teams touted as being interested are not short of money either! He was one of the best centre forwards in the league once he moved into that position, and in a better team would have scored plenty more. i'd have him in this Pelle team over Lukaku easily.
Personally I do not want to see him leave, and I doubt Pelle would sanction it unless it was for a big sum and he had plans in place to replace him. If sold, the most important thing is how we spend the money and replace him, whatever happens I trust Pelle.
We don't know what Arnie thinks, but I could understand if he wanted to go to one of these teams already in Champions League given his age. We may well get to Europe soon, but we cannot guarantee that next year whereas these teams can. I hope he believes in the project we have going here though, who knows, with no Europe this year we could do a Leicester or a Chelsea!


 

 

10 Jul 2018 15:28:06
Just seen Burke's gone to Hull for £1.5m, they might as well have given him away, ok he hasn't exactly played much for us, but has some good on loan experience, would have thought maybe £3 or £4m would seem more worthwhile letting him go for? Also be disappointed if Antonio goes, With all the imports coming in, we don't really know if they'll settle?

Chelmsford1944

1.) 10 Jul 2018 17:20:33
I don't know why they didn't loan Burke out for the silly money sold him for, just hope it does not come back to bite us.


2.) 11 Jul 2018 10:21:59
The deal has a sell on percentage clause in it apparently, so if they sell him for £15m one day we would get the £3m that we would value him at now (assuming its 20%) .
I rated Burke, he never really performed badly for us when he played. However, he never showed true prem quality like Rice has, and that is the quality of player MP is after. Correct move to let him move on, if he comes good one day we will have a 20% discount on him haha!


3.) 11 Jul 2018 17:13:21
Burke isn't imo a premiership player as too why he's been given away and not sold lol no all joking aside he would have been found out against majority of prem teams and if needed I for one wouldn't have been confident of him doing the job but I think he's found his level and good luck to him because he's even come out and said good things about WHUFC which is refreshing for a player to come out and not slag off their former club.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 18:00:26
To be honest Chelmsford not much too say. Seems like everything is on hold for world cup. I like our ambition but it seems we are punching above our weight with some of the names and as always our dealings take months to get done so not excited. Been here before with every name under the sun every window only for us to make desperation signings at the end of the window. A leopard don't change it's spots and despite having a good manager that can attract quality our board (Sullivan) will have different ideas as always.


3.) 10 Jun 2018 18:23:32
Phil, good to know you are ok👍😄 I agree I try not to comment on to much speculation about who we will sign or not and to be honest I have not have any knowledge of most of them unless they have played over here, the names mean nothing to me😂😂.

7.) 11 jun 2018 12:21:00
my words exactly phil never ever going to sign players over £25 mill they have apparently we've offered a measly £17mill and that's nearly £17 million under what's wanted by lazio so another wild goose chase any news mike as i thought we were going to sign him by the end of the week. coyi.


8.) 11 Jun 2018 13:00:52
Not so much Zen but past experience Obe one Jasonb LMFAO

I see Ohmmmmmmmmmmm another long hard pointless transfer window ohhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm full of promise but no delivery. I see us Ohhhhhhhhmmmmmm buying CF from Stalybridge on dealine day at £45m and then feeling proud about the good work we've done! I also see, WAIT, its becoming clearer, I see us starting the season with Winston Reid in goal after we forget to replace the keepers we release and finally I see us drawing with Man Utd 0-0 at Old Trafford. Great result except they only fielded Romelu Lukaku.


9.) 11 Jun 2018 13:07:04
Lots of it Kram lol.


10.) 11 Jun 2018 16:24:21
At least we have the World Cup to look forward to and then its back to the DGS reality TV Show. Bound to raise a few laughs with Sullivan and and Gold already apparently over ruling the managers choice to replace Tony Henry! I did say apparently because its the only thing that's apparent about the way our board work. Bunch of jokers and con artists.


 

 

08 Jun 2018 08:20:03
Yaya Toure linked to us, in the normal way I would have thought he's well worth a punt, what a great experienced, tough player to have providing the price and wages were right! However his remarks about about Guardiola being "cruel to him" is more the kind of remark I would expect to hear in a divorce court, he also had issues at one time I believe about his birthday at Man C I seem to remember! Is he a player that expects to be on the team sheet no matter what? I still think he would be an excellent acquisition, but have reservations about his moaning, would be a beast to have in our team, so I am 50-50 on this one should it happen?

The way the Arnautovic rumours seem to be gathering momentum leads me to think that we are ready to offload him in order to recoup a chunk of our recent splash out on our unprecedented spending? I cannot see it any other way, from his second half performance of the season last year, there is no way he couldn’t have attracted interest and I menti9ned this at the end of th season! He is 29,so he must see it as his last big pay day with a transfer, the board will see it as good business to help balance the books! They have placated the supporters. With all the some so called “marquee” signings to soften the blow, a very shrewed move by them if it turns out that Arnie moves on! More importantly I see nobody is coming out to dispel the rumours, Nor does it seem Arnie is prepared to deny deny it with a comment, so he is bound for for the rainy climate of Manchester I fear or maybe a sunnier destination? I just hope my theory is wrong, I think in the short time he has been here, he has been quite fantasticly exciting to watch when moved in a central position, terrifying the defences, please Arnie don’t go, but this all but wrapped up and his destination is already pencilled in but in an envelope marked “ top secret”, I just hope i’m not on here at the close of the window saying, well I did predict this,!

Would be totally gutted if Arnie went👎 Just hope this is not true, Hays unfortunately if there is any truth it could be for any family reason, or perhaps he feels he won’t be the centre of all the adoration he received last year! Maybe he doesn’t like London life, so many if and buts when we don’t really know if it’s journalism being mischievous, let’s hope the rumour mill is untrue!

If Adrian wants to go back to Spain with the family, I think Forster would be a great loan deal, but can’t see any point in having 3 Keepers, you’re not going to Keep 3 Keepers happy unless they’re just content to pick their wages up? That’s providing Trott goes out on loan of. course?

Said it before, really don’t want to see Antonio go, please don’t give him away to Palace like we did Tomkins! But maybe his is one of the higher value players that can help balance the books although prefer to see him stay!

Wales, yes total agreement, we should all be ecstatic, but still some asking for this one and that one, he has bolstered the defence and attack, we don’t need to spend for the sake of it! We have Arnie in my opinion has the ability to be among the leading goal scorers this season, being supplied by flying wingers, also Hernandez with him should be trying to justify his £140k a week instead of strolling around sulking, providing they are both still with us come the closing of the window, Arnie I pray stays, Hernandez am indifferent about him, also really confident some of our new signings will Be weighing in with goals. Can’t wait for the season to start, nobody can complain about the board not investing now, so Board complainers on spending, you surely should have no complaints now👍⚒⚒⚒ maybe hoping for to much, but what a start if we could poke it up Liverpool on on the opening game as we did a few seasons ago 3-0,surely we couldn’t could we😂😂COYI⚒⚒⚒.

We’re used to football failure so this seems a success. The winners have been the country as a whole, at least it gave a lot of people some hope and lifted spirits for a while, the real winners were the ones that benefitted from the spin offs from it, drinks, food, airlines, flag suppliers etc etc, so well done boys for boosting the economy and uplifting morale for a short period. If our team show its biggest improvement for over 50 plus years in this coming season I will be ecstatic as we all will, MP and the board are giving us reasons to believe we won’t be constantly looking over our shoulders this season and May even be expecting to move up the MOTD play list😂😂⚒⚒⚒.
