well hands up to you boys that predicted s win and i said no chance, well done to you👍👍 so i know f-- all😂😂😂 what a magnificent performance, yarmelenko, arnie, anderson, great👍👍 noble ran his socks off along with every man in the team, now for chelsea and manu⚒⚒⚒⚒coyi.




03 Jul 2018 15:04:12
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?


1.) 03 Jul 2018 16:15:55
Dont just watch the epl.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 16:44:10
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 :)

4.) 03 Jul 2018 17:36:25
sky, bt sports eurosport all help.
heck even itv had bundesliga highlights.



09 Jun 2018 08:44:28
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😂😂😂.


1.) 09 Jun 2018 09:04:57
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😂.


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🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻.


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!

Reading reports about Yarmelenko challenging a critic, wanting to punch his lights out is all rather stupid! He just wants to look a macho man, he should concentrate on getting himself fit and start making some progress for the club that invested. £17.5m in him and paying him enormous wages! Pack up football and go into boxing if he wants to punch peoples lights out! If he reads this he might want to punch my lights out😂😂 that's not fair f he does, you shouldn't hit an old boy that wears glasses😄😄 Start scoring and playing well beginning with the Spurs game and you'll be loved😘😘⚒⚒⚒.


1.) 15 Oct 2018 12:21:26
Bang on chelms.



24 Sep 2018 09:39:44
Really unlucky yesterday, but Chelsea had their chances as well, great keeper in Fabianski. We have the 3 ez's that are complete passengers that are Champioship class at best that contribute nothing except being in a squad, Perez, Sanchez, Hernandez👎👎 when you look at us what Maddison is contributing to Leicester and we ummed and arred over a £20/ £22 m fee, what a buy he is!,


1.) 24 Sep 2018 13:11:46
Yep and we could have had him before he went to Leicester! I still want to know where Wilshire fits in when he is back and available because this 11 at the moment look compact, well drilled and a real threat on the break. Antonio is terrible and time to let him loose. Perez just needs more time, Sanchez is dreadful and I hope we start and see more and more of Fredericks as the season progresses cause he could be a real talent.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 17:10:20
Phil, I still have a strong liking for Antonio, I can think of a number of players worse than him on our books draining the resources that put no effort in, he always makes himself available and is versatile, Mike reckons he should put his personal problems behind him whatever they are. But I couldn’t fault his effort! Fredericks, I cannot see why he isn’t playing, very pacey player with lots of potential, Maybe something behind the scenes unknown to us?

3.) 24 Sep 2018 18:23:03
I am with Chelmsford, Antonio was a good source and worked his socks off up front, he missed a couple of chances but I would also say a couple of good saves made by their keeper, normally I would be fearful about Man Utd next week but I am now thinking we can beat them and keep moving up the table.
I’d like to see Antonio, Yarmolenko and Arnie in a three pronged attack, with Antonio bullying there defenders it would open up nicely for the other two.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 12:02:53
I also like Antonio, who else would you put in his place at the moment, he held up the ball well, ran for everything and I like your term bullying cause he was very dangerous in one to one situations and often came away with the ball rather than fall over, I think the goals will come.

5.) 25 Sep 2018 17:44:43
another vote for Antonio here, works really hard and was very disappointed in his post match interview that he didn't score at least he tries unlike "little pea poor"

6.) 26 Sep 2018 11:19:25
If you watch ANTONIO when he goes on a sprint he’s puffing and blowing for 5 minutes after and I truly believe he ain’t nowhere near fit enough look at hazard and salad when they go on sprints they want the ball in the next phase of play and before people say those two are different class I’m on about fitness not ability and he ain’t fit enough fact. COYI.

7.) 28 Sep 2018 07:07:02
At least Antonio runs and tries, he puts in effort so he’s entitled to puff and blow, you say don’t mention Hazard and Salah as you’re talking fitness, you’ve chosen to compare Antonio with 2 of the greatest players in the world, so come on Whorya at least make fair comparisons, that’s ridiculous to compre his effort and fitness to those players, they would be the first names on team sheets of any club in the world!

8.) 28 Sep 2018 10:57:33
Also CHELMS I didn’t mention effort mate I said FITNESS please only quote me on things I said many thanks . COYI.

9.) 28 sep 2018 10:55:44
your obviously missing the point as i said i wasn’t comparing ability chelms every post i put up you disagree with every player in the premiership should be as fit as hazard and salah that’s fit not ability chelms i’m not comparing ability i ain’t stupid nor naive with dietians and fitness coaches nowadays there is absolutely excuses for not being fit especially when you get paid extreme amounts of money it’s being disrespectful to us fans the world and his wife can see antonio isn’t playing with the same intensity as a couple of seasons ago so why can’t you it’s all about opinions that’s mine that’s yours but you like i said in my original post are missing the point i’m saying i’m comparing him to those two ability in there all round game but you should 100%be as fit as those 2 arnautovic goes on runs all game and you don’t see him with his hands on his knees 5 mins afterwards. coyi.

10.) 28 Sep 2018 15:33:16
Whorya, I don’t intentionally disagree for the sake of it, imo you cannot compare fitness with Antonio and 2 seasoned world class International players, where their ability and skill can override some fitness issue, why don’t you compare him to your mate Wilshere, i’d Say that’s a far more reasonable comparison! Antonio ain’t Mo Farah, but nor are a lot of other players, if whoever isn’t fit who’s fault is it, who watches the training and the fitness levels, they are seeing something you’ve not, I agree, not fit, no selection, but he’s being selected and he puts effort in, which takes more effort than a naturally skilled player which Antonio isn’t so who else do you suggest?



06 Sep 2018 08:25:33
I am re-analysing my thoughts on the board? For a player or management staff they must be the one of the best employers in Premiership football, they take the board for a bunch of p--s which in football club terms I think they are! They reputedly pay the best wages for a completely non achieving bunch of players, the manager f--s off home to Chile for a holiday as no doubt other staff have, there is no effort put in by the majority of players, in short the club has no discipline whatsoever, go to WH and do whatever you like chaps! DGS succumbed to MP's wishes of wanting total control, I am f---g gob smacked at this bunch of supposedly experienced management team that will ruin our club! Well this is the answer to everybody that didn't want Sullivan to have a say in transfers, even if he and Gold had only heavily investedunknown £millions in the club😧😧😧 I know if I had invested that heavily I would want plenty to say in the running of the club!, To much foreign content in the club, no good unless their families reside here, must breed discontent and home sickness! A
Apologies if this blog sounds like a load of rubbish to some, but it's an age thing from an oap from a different era when discipline was part of life!




01 Sep 2018 19:31:49
Well have we all been hoodwinked by Pelligrini? I was one that before we knew he was coming stated on here I was for keeping Moyes as he had done a job, when he went and we got Pelligrini I was well pleased! However I stated he was "like a kid in a sweetshop" being linked with so many foreign players and thought we needed more Premiership experienced players, less would have been more? But I had no idea he would be devoid of ideas, John Motson and Perry Groves commentating on Radio were very critical! I stated on my last post that I thought Wolves would beat us today, bloody decent side with tactics and pace! We are the worst in the Premiership and the table doesn't lie👎👎⚒⚒⚒.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 21:09:47
Cmon be fair I told you two weeks past Pellegrini is a fraud, what manager after four losses in a row. States we need to score more goals and defend better ! He’s no doubt already in talks with his lawyers to get maxi payoff On top of that WH look totally unfit AGAIN like the clocks been turned back pre Moyes. IRONMIKE.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 01:46:32
Agreed. As I said a while back his Chinese team were glad to see the back of him. He wasted money and took them backwards, seems to be happening again. I mean so many got excited about spending 100m but if you take a look we basically brought in players who couldn’t get a game for their team or else are Championship level. With tactics that don’t fit the players he has no surprise really. With tough games ahead if we are still on no points in 3 or 4 games with no momentum we will be in trouble. I hope I’m wrong and come the end of the season people say those naysayers just didn’t have patience, I really do. I will be so happy to say I was wrong. I’m really worried I won’t be saying it though.



28 Aug 2018 20:43:53
45 still to go, but effing disgrace to be losing 1-0 at half time, shameful especially to 10 men☹️☹️☹️👎👎👎👎.

Re enquiry for Heaton, just hope he’s not now injury prone we don’t need more on the books! Looks like there’s an agreement for Adrian to go, agree with other lads on him, thanks for being a very patient Keeper, be sorry to see you go but you deserve first team football elsewhere, hope you find it in sunny Spain👍.

I have previously posted some support for Yarmelenko, it’s still early days but he should be putting in effort for a Premiership and International player! Perez yes maybe give him a start, however in the little he has been involved, I have seen him do next to nothing? Antonio I have also posted my support for, more based possibly on past performances, but he is very Championship ish now, if an offer comes in January, providing satisfactory, let him go! Think we should give Diangana a start on the wing? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Nickino, that’s a very fair and honest assessment you have posted, you must be a very fair and patient man👍I don’t think it at all fair myself when well known personalities hang others in public knowing that possibly millions will read them, hopefully my own comments on JW is only read by a very small amount of people. As you say I would love JW to make me look a real mug and turn into a great signing🙈🙈will be nervously watching tonight hoping we can carry our form over to the Amex stadium tonight👍COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Philmac, Regards your 1 October post,
where is Wilshere going to fit in after injury, my answer is, he simply won’t fit in anywhere and we honestly shouldn’t have had the problem as we shouldn’t have signed a crock! I have a very low opinion of him, a number on here rate him, I don’t, he’s his own biggest fan👎Thought I was in the minority, however looking for team news tonight, a related article by Tony Cascarino slated the signing saying "he was flabbergasted he was given such a lucrative contract given his poor injury record, he was a vanity signing, also WH have looked so much better without him and he is not suited to today’s Premiership standards due to fitness" etc.

Also he’s not the only ex pro to state that, our ex Dean Ashton had severe doubts about Wilshere, he was excellent maybe up to a couple of years ago, but not now, frightened to run and get tackled in case of affecting a reoccurrence! Massive waste of financial resources!

Sdl, your last paragraph about “ players not playing being paid etc. was the point I am making about a level playing field for all! Appreciate Sdl very difficult, players milking lucrative contracts, have we not taken a bigger gamble on Wilshere which I think is s bad joke! But if other clubs come in, especially a London club with a massive hike in basic salary, we can safely assume that he will at least seriously consider it no matter how much “ he loves the club” bearing in mind Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal, are seriously more successful clubs than our 'also rans'.

That is my realistic view! If they really wanted shot of Oxford, I believe they had offers but decided to decline, will we sit on the fence when this happens with other young outstanding talent! If I remember Joe Cole was offered an unprecedented contract at the age of 16/17, but of course DGS were more into the early days of porn😂😂⚒⚒⚒.

Most January signings seem to turn out to be a waste of financial resources, Moyes reputedly suggested we pay the £9m for Hugill that played 15 minutes for us, I personally thought he should have been given more of a chance, there were some good reports about him after we acquired him, unless we have more injury problems than at present we should keep our options open for the summer window, unless we have decent offers for those that are now deemed to be excess to requirements and use that income for the summer window!

Whorya, I like the way you get straight to the point😂😂😂yes i’m good mate, hope you’re ok to?

Boring bloody. International break now, just hope if any of ours are involved they don’t pick up any bad injury like Lanzini!,

hammerdave, think Whorya is referring to me with. The “slagging off” I would call it strong disagreement on Wilshere and his ability, fitness and workrate! Whorya is very pro Wilshere, whereas I am anti Wilshere and thought it was a complete waste of signing a well known injury prone player, hoping he will get over his injury problems, we have enough long term injuries now without recruiting more! However agree with Whorya on Antonio now, was previously an admirer of him, but would take a reasonable offer in January if it arises?

Stevie, I totally agree with you, my post re lesser teams is directed at WH not yourself, it makes your blood boil that these clubs with what seems less financial clout than us because of far smaller Stadium gate income, seem to recruit and train players at times with far more seemingly energy and enthusiasm than we get from ours, is their something inherent among the complete running of the club that gives it the feeling that players are to comfortable on their contracts? I think David Moyes had the right attitude to a lot of malingerers and those that lacked the roll up your sleeves attitude of earn your money or f—- off! Players are pampered to much because of the money that in some cases have been foolishly invested in them, but of course unless you know them well, you don’t know who the p—- takers are always going to be? If I had untold £millions to blow no money of mine would go into a club to pay for footballers obscene financial rewards👎☹️.
