Hate speculation and online rumours but just read online Hernandez's agent filmed at our Stadium, only stumbling block is valuation. take anything around the £10m surely, then get rid of his stupid £140k wage burden, he's done nothing, won't do anything, so doesn't even matter surely if we don't replace!

Sad thing is with Arnie now injured, Gomez not wanting to come, I think JH May be our first choice starter for the coming weeks.


2.) 30 Jan 2019 02:23:32
I mentioned he's a possibility to go he’s taken over the mantle of MR SULK just recently, with Arnie injured better off playing DJU and SILVA up front at least we will get some movement and honesty. IRONMIKE.


3.) 30 Jan 2019 03:50:09
Agreed but can you see that happening? I think we will hold onto JH as the Gomez deal slips away and JH has the backing of MP it seems so would guess he will start him on the weekend.


4.) 30 Jan 2019 09:50:37
any sign of good news regarding players mike? lords knows we need it after that shambles last night.


5.) 30 Jan 2019 10:14:07
What a bloody shambles indeed, WE seem to make one step forward and then two steps back. And Dear Lord have we got some players to shift, it’s a long long list. IRONMIKE.

Great to read Hernandez talking so positively about playing and scoring goals for us, then looking to capitalise on our winning streak against Fulham on Saturday👍⚒ I am quite happy or admit that I have been a massive anti Hernandez critic on here, previously, simply because of his previous lack of enthusiasm and lack of effort on the pitch, no matter what his past statistics on goal scoring said!

But now WOW, completely reversed my opinion now having been given the chance by MP to play from the start in the last few games and scoring some good goals! I don't feel guilty over my previous remarks as to me any player should commit 100% for the sake of the paying fans and for himself👍He says " He. now feels the same excitement putting the WH shirt on and playing as he feels playing for Mexico" 👍👍⚒⚒.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions Chelms, its great when a player performs well enough to change our minds! let's hope JW does the same, as we all know your thoughts on him. Snodds is a great example, as I am sure all of us wouldn't have complained had he left in the summer. I am sure there are better players out there, but he is a player we can all be proud to see wearing the shirt, much like Nobes. Proper professional.
Chica's career stats always warranted his salary, as he is a proven player who has CONSISTENTLY scored more goals at the top level than anyone we have ever had. I do not begrudge the salary he is on. The fact is he has not done it for us so far, which is why many feel this way about him. HOWEVER, Chica needs a certain style of football to flourish, and that has not been provided by our teams under Slav and Moyes. MP is changing that though, and i really hope that this new style and confidence provides the platform for Chica to really flourish and score lots of goals for us. His effort on the pitch has always been there.

{Ed001's Note - I am confused, how is a player who was, by his own admittance, too fat to play well for more than a year a proper professional? I get Noble is, to a degree anyway, but Snodgrass only has himself to blame for his poor form.}


2.) 14 Dec 2018 14:12:30
He was always that weight and played very well for other teams, those previous managers never required/ told him to loose the weight to perform better, so its a bit unfair to say he was un-professional, he was just never coached properly in order to get even MORE out of him. Turned out that the level he was at was not good enough for West Ham, and eventually a good manager came in (Pellegrini) and told him what he needed to do in order to improve, and he did it when he could have easily thrown his toys out of the pram and left (especially after the owners comments last year) . He is also great at the non-football stuff around the club. IMO that is a great attitude and a proper professional.


3.) 14 Dec 2018 15:20:07
How did this go from Chicha to Snodgrass?


4.) 15 Dec 2018 10:44:25
I, too have been very sceltical about Hernandez, who always seems to react sulkily if things don’t go his way. His turnaround in form is very welcome, though.

Let’s see if the Fulham game is hot or cold for him - if it’s the latter, I’m betting he will be caught offside consistently as he scowls and stares at the ground.

If it’s the former and he bangs in a couple, I’ll take it!


5.) 15 Dec 2018 22:09:43
Make Ed right on this matter totally I know I go on far too much about astronomical wages but to be overweight is mostly his fault and the club for allowing to happen total lack of professionalism and duty to the football club and fans at least he's starting to earn his money and show us die hard SUPPORTERS some effort and commitment to the football club and lastly To CHELMSFORD it one thing to say what you think regarding CHIQUARITO saying you are anti the player but to then admit you may have been slightly wrong is nice to read so well done chelms it's all about opinion this game but to admit you could be wrong is not always forthcoming hope you andon't family are all good mate. COYI.

{Ed001's Note - and, by the way, he was never that weight previously by his own admittance. He has actually come out publicly and said so. I think Nickinho is living in some kind of dream world where Snodgrass was anything but a poor winger, prior to losing weight and improving his fitness. He did have fitness issues and was not training hard enough in the past and was overweight for a footballer, but not to the extent he was recently. The lad has never been a good pro at all. He has never put in the time on the training ground nor looked after himself properly away from the pitch in the past.

Fair play to him for realising it and working on it, but he should have been doing it ten years ago. That is partially on him and partially on previous clubs and managers.}


6.) 17 Dec 2018 09:08:51
Well said Ed, cannot believe the change in him, a player I thought a poor signing and a worse squad player.
Makes you wonder what Allardici and Bilic were doing fitness wise.
On another note, Caroll looked the leanest I have ever seen him on Saturday, reckon MP is working them all very hard, hope it all works well for us.

{Ed001's Note - you have to give a lot of credit to Pellegrini, he has got through to players that other managers couldn't get through to. It is something he has done throughout his career and why he has been at the highest level. It is also good to see him succeed because he is a nice guy.}


7.) 17 Dec 2018 16:50:29
I don't pretend to know Snodders' weight fluctuations prior to West Ham. You can only succeed at the tasks put in front of you, and he had succeeded at all his previous clubs (relative to their level) . When he arrived after Payet's departure, the team as a whole was not performing at all in the wake of the move to the OS and all the negativity surrounding the club. The manager did not have the ability to get a performance out of the team let alone Snods (I say that as a fan of Slav) and our owner was then completely out of order with his public comments which would ruin any player's motivation and commitment. Were it me at my job (regardless of money i was earning), if my manager or CEO made those re-marks publicly I would lose motivation also. He went away to Villa and was once again a success.
You are right, Pellegrini deserves the bulk of the credit for giving him the opportunity again at this level, and the direction on what to do in order to improve his game. But in my personal opinion I do not see the un-professional side to his story, and what he does now for the club is commendable.

{Ed001's Note - if you can't see what is unprofessional about being overweight as a professional athlete then I am wasting my time even talking to you.}


8.) 18 Dec 2018 14:10:49
Not every player is Ronaldo esq when it comes to their own physique, that's precisely why clubs have dieticians and fitness trainers in order to manage their levels so that they can perform to the levels their manager demands. A player's professionalism regards how they look after themselves is therefore dependant on whether they can physically perform to the level their manager demands, and i have highlighted how Snods has looked after himself professionally enough throughout his career to have been successful at all his previous clubs.

He did not put on weight at West Ham United, that was not the reason he did not succeed at first. He came into a team that was performing terribly during a negative period after leaving Upton Park, he was played out of position, and was unforgivably slated publicly by his owner because he could not fill the boots of a world class player in Payet. His comment stated that he lost some condition while at Villa in the Championship, where the physical demands are different. But he was still in good enough physical condition to exceed his managers demands and be one of the best players in that league that season.

He has simply come back to a league that demands more, and to work under a manager who prefers all his technical players to be much leaner than other managers do. You can see it in all of our players this season, they have all gotten leaner, and could all therefore say they were previously "overweight", simply because this manager demands more. Snodds has responded to meet those demands yet again.

Professionalism in any profession is ensuring you are able to perform to the level that meets the demands set out for you by those higher up. Snodgrass imo has done exactly that with regards his condition, and has exceeded it in regards to his non footballing duties at WHU. Just because a player is not as fit as Ronaldo does not mean you question their professionalism.

Apparently MP is interested in Valencia at ManU to replace Zabaletta, another younger oldie to replace another oldie? Not quite sure about that but has been really decent in the past! Also has given Carroll a contract warning that he needs to play more often to win a new contract, well hopefully that's dead in the water! Pity he didn't think to say that to Wilshere before he signed him!

Chelmsford1944

1.) 07 Dec 2018 10:29:00
I see that about Valencia as well Chelmsford, I don't know how long Fredericks is out for but once fit we need to give him a few minutes on the pitch to get him up to speed and give him confidence, I also see Nasri is set to sign on wages believed to be £80-£100k a week, what must Rice be thinking, I would rather get in a couple of loans in January and concentrate on Rice's contract.


2.) 07 Dec 2018 13:23:48
The paramount thing that WH should do is get Rice on a new contract NOW. paying above average wages to has beens does not give a good impression to Rice, he must wonder what is going on around him. If we lose Rice it would be devastating to the supporters.


3.) 07 Dec 2018 14:08:55
Hammer man, it wouldn't just be devastating, I think there would be a bloody riot, you will get banners at home games saying BOARD OUT, and we don't really want all that to start up again, let's hope it is all being sorted out behind the scenes?


4.) 07 Dec 2018 18:11:52
So what can the problem be by not getting Rice on a long term contract. Its about time we were told the truth, or is it just our board being stubborn. It can't be that the club can't afford it as we are paying squad players drastically over the odds.


5.) 07 Dec 2018 20:40:32
As I said above, and playing devils advocate above, maybe it’s his agent and Rice who don’t want to negotiate yet?


 

 

29 Nov 2018 09:41:09
Regarding the Rice situation and Sullivan / whoever else is concerned, from an outside point of view, we all want to see progression for our club and gain respectability within the Premiership and are all must be fed up with us continually languishing in the relegation zone! The opinion seems to be "Sullivan is shrewd" yes maybe but everybody has weaknesses and makes mistakes, maybe in the world of porn he was extremely successful, making money he has been successful, but running a football club, maybe not so successful in winning some silverware and gaining respectability!

We have become easy touches for wasting money on huge wages, that's not shrewd look at Levy at Spurs, now he is what I call shrewd, fantastic Manager, great players, great football, I am now thinking the board has given Pellegrini to much control in desperation for success, I would simply not give anybody that much control if I had invested tens of £millions, that's not shrewd in my opinion! your employee can walk away without a worry in the world with their bank stuffed with £millions for being a failure! I hope by the end of the season I am proved wrong on all accounts!

I see Tammy Abrahams wants to return to Chelsea from his loan at A. Villa, could we do any qorse than have a go for him if he were available? He's a goal scorer, been player of the season for Villa, aged 21, 6.3 tall, great target man and can score goals, London born lad! Good experience with Chelsea, Bristol City, Swansea, Villa, get away from the players abroad and pensioners for a change, we should at least be looking at him?

Chelmsford1944

1.) 19 Apr 2019 10:53:09
Couldn't do any worse than our current lot. Young though. I thought we only signed 30+ players.


2.) 19 Apr 2019 11:27:02
Chelsea might not let him leave as they've got a transfer embargo, they can't get anyone in, especially if Hazard leaves as his virtually out of contract.

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside any thoughts of an "embargo", Chelsea has had a very good offer for Tammy Abraham already from another side and will talk to the player at the end of the season.}


3.) 19 Apr 2019 11:39:18
Hammer😂😂yes bang on mate unfortunately with 30plus signings! He’s 21 with decent experience for a younger player, yes of course plenty of others but doubt if he’s going to get many starts at Chelsea but of course you never, we would however baulk at any fee Chelsea put on him I think, as reckon he could be good for the present and future? ⚒⚒⚒.


4.) 19 Apr 2019 12:17:02
Thanks for the info Ed, I don’t keep track of all that intricate stuff, any idea who the offer was from and how much?

Ed, Thank you, understand👍.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Chelmsford.

Also, in reply to Jason, you are right and there are a number of German sides looking at the English youngsters in the PL, the Under 23s and the youth sides. Bayer Leverkusen have a declared interest in Ben Cabango of Swansea, Ellis Simms of Everton and a Chelsea youngster. Bayern Munich are one of the sides keeping an eye on Wan-Bissaka and of course Hudson-Odoi. Borussia Dortmund seem to be camped out in England watching your own Declan Rice, Fulham's Matt O'Riley and Ruan Sessegnon, Ellis Simms, Phil Foden of Manchester City and a Chelsea youngster (who is also being watched by Borussia Muenchengladbach. Hoffenheim have eyes for Simms as well and Aaron Connolly of Brighton/Luton. As I said, RBL has already spoken to Chelsea about buying Tammy Abraham and loaning another player whilst Wolfsburg are also keen on Ben Cabango, the Swansea youngster. Clubs with academies of repute, e.g. West Ham and Chelsea, will find scouts from German sides at many of the games. Fortuna Düsseldorf have taken on a director who will make sure they are also well represented in England. The London clubs, such as West Ham, have the benefit of two multi-tiered lower-level clubs that have developed numerous players who have gone on to play at the highest level - Chelsea, Spurs and West Ham have always had a good relationship with one in particular (Senrab) and German sides are attending game there as well.}

Is it a coincidence that since IronMike has stopped posting on this site it has become very boring and empty, I personally only posted on others comments to either agree or disagree so I am not the most interesting of posters I must admit🤣The usual stalwarts on this site are not communicating much, as like me they probably have little to comment on! As somebody posted previously, we are missing Mikes info whether it was believable or idealistic rumour! So my post says come back Mike providing of course you are well, or this site is in danger of going to the mortuary!

Chelmsford1944

{Ed002's Note - It was nout humour, it was simply nonsense, He is more than welcome to com back with all of his fantasy "bid gone in" rubbish you all seem so keen on.}


1.) 12 Apr 2019 12:08:34
To be honest Chelms, not a lot going on. Even twitter is almost silent about us these days.
Personally think the main focus will be on player sales and feel most of us will find that quite boring?
Rumours I have seen on outs (From back to front)
GK - Adrian (Trott deemed worthy of 1st team)
LB - Masuaku
RB - Zabaleta, Byram (loan)
CB - Oxford, Ogbonna
MC - Obiang
LW/ RW - No one yet
SC - Perez, Carroll, Arnautovic
A few youngsters to be released as well.

ED002 gave a decent snapshot of players we are interested in/ have no hope/ likely a week or so ago and he is generally on the money.
Can start twitter roundup again if Mike doesn't return but frankly most is rubbish.

{Ed002's Note - I think a lot of effort needs to be made to hang on to Declan Rice.}


2.) 12 Apr 2019 15:27:18
Glen, to be honest my opinion of playing is quite old fashioned due to age factor, players should be versatile up to a point and have a good work rate! Defenders should be able to defend anywhere within reason and forwards should be able to attack and score goals. Football is made too complicated, especially listening to some pundits!
So realistically I know nothing of players abroad unless they have played here, can be complications with settling in or simply cashing in on big Money. Defenders / Midfield, Shelvey, Clyne, Dunk, Duffy, Forwards/ Attack, Mitrovic, Traore, Ashley Barnes, Solly March, Traore. Wood, these to me are proven players in the Premiersnip! As I said I have set myself up to be shot down with my old fashioned train of thought but I think these seem solid players to my knowledge and not paperweight pretenders! So I would have any of them that added up to a £75m spend!


3.) 12 Apr 2019 15:58:48
I'd go all out for Gomez and Che adams. cm I'd go for kessie at Milan or Toulouse lad sangare I think. Get brahimi in on a free and add some youth for lb, i'd also use masarku wide left and move Anderson central to add pace.


4.) 12 Apr 2019 16:28:45
I would personally love to see West Ham go for Kieran Tierney though I suspect he would have bigger clubs chasing him.


5.) 12 Apr 2019 20:24:16
Pellegrini and his coaching staff are taking VAR lessons at the moment from a company called CPC. regards IRONMIKE.

21 Mar 2019 07:37:27
Just reading about a debate on WHU TV News where Ryan Archer has a vote on WY supporters views on selling or keeping Hernandez! The consensus seems to say keep him, I am now doing an about turn on my previous comments and say if he wants stay keep him! Any player that can make a positive impact for the side in whatever position should surely be kept, maybe he should be used more regularly? Arnie, attitude stinks, no work rate, bundle of trouble, team always does better without him, get rid, also seems opinion on the site agrees as well! Pérez, get rid, Carroll's going and Adrian, I would keep Masuaku and Obiang, although others my disagree?

Chelmsford1944

1.) 21 Mar 2019 08:14:00
I agree regarding Hernandez, all forwards need regular game time. When we give him the match fitness he scores goals and any defender will tell you the worst player in the penalty area is one with the speed and close ball control that he has. His record speaks for itself, all his goals are scored within the penalty box. As for Masuaku, I am afraid I think he is a liability, his defending is rubbish and all teams try and expose him, and that is not difficult. When he plays as a wing back he makes a few good runs but for me not consistent enough, get rid. Arnie must go, he is sulking and a bad egg. Perez and Carroll are all but gone. can't keep Adrian, he needs game time and deserves to be let go for his loyalty.


2.) 21 Mar 2019 09:13:12
Hernandez has had a very successful poaching career, but as a matter of record, in the Prem, he has a history of being at his best as an impact sub. Just think of all those goals he scored at MU coming on later in the game. I wonder whether it is a general fitness issue, or a concentration one that he seems less effective when he starts and/ or plays the whole game.

Objectively, I think he would be an excellent option B on the bench next season, but I can’t see him accepting that.

I agree that Arnie, Perez and Carroll are toast, so realistically, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a totally revamped strike force in the summer.

Interesting times.


3.) 21 Mar 2019 14:08:03
Masuaku for me just isn't good enough at defending. Maybe he IS a left mid like he claims, but if that is the case he is behind Anderson, and i would have any of Nasri, Lanzini, Antonio or Yarmolenko there ahead of him, or even promote youth such as Holland or Marcus Browne. I fear his days with us are numbered IF we get an offer. New LB needed who can push or go past Cresswell.
Hernandez is our most CONSISTENT striker atm. And i would keep him ahead of Perez, Arnie and Carroll. But, i don't think Chica will accept no.2 role if we then went and got a new no.1, and his salary is too high for us for a player that is no.2.
Arnie on his day is great, but even Stoke players said that once his head is turned he just isn't the same player consistently enough. For the money we COULD get, best to sell and re-invest.
I don't have a clue what will happen in summer, MP and Husillos certainly have a lot to do, and that is before the defensive work they will have to do just to keep hold of Rice, Anderson and Diop! I trust in them both though, AND the board have really turned a corner the last 12 months, I am behind them too.


4.) 22 Mar 2019 10:27:35
Arnie out carroll out Perez out obisng and Arthur not good enough sell both. Sell hugill byram Oxford Adrian get rid of wilshire if possible. Sign a young keeper young full backs young centre mid and a couple young forwards. Then develop Coventry Grady Silva and Ben Johnson that would be my business for the summer.


5.) 22 Mar 2019 19:29:15
G sakai
Ben mee
Alfred duncan
Robert skov
Che Adams
Yussef poulson . That would be my summer signing, and a major clear out.


6.) 26 Mar 2019 12:50:58
I see ARNIE got a brace in a losing austrian game.


 

 

12 Mar 2019 07:49:15
Why are we supposedly interested in another foreign "hopeful" for future investment in Moreira the Portuguese youngster? I am bloody baffled given our history of youngsters we have on our books that seem to moving nowhere near Premiership ability? I have no knowledge of foreign players so may seem silly to comment, but they may find the lure of the Premiership payday too irresistible to resist knowing it doesn't matter if they don't make it! We should be concentrating on signing Players that can hit the ground running!

Chelmsford1944

1.) 12 Mar 2019 09:16:02
We are doing the same as the big clubs, buy cheap young players, develop them, loan them out (maybe they will come good) but eventually sell on for a massive profit.
If you look at Chelsea, Man City, Barcelona they all do this and make fortunes on the players - its a good way to make a bit of extra money.


2.) 12 Mar 2019 14:15:39
I totally agree the logic is right Glenn, but the 3 clubs you mentioned haven’t been successful on the back of buying cheap then selling for massive profits that’s for sure! That imo is almost a sideline when you are very successful club that are winning or have won meaningful trophies or titles that establish you on a more world wide basis!

See we’ve upped our bid apparently for Medel to £7.7m, am I the only one that is thinking Husillos and MP are far to blinkered in their recruitment policy, Medel approaching 33, Chilean! That’s not cheap for me, experienced yes, but for the bloody Premiership, how many more £7/ 8m’s are we going to throw away on players that are simply not good enough for the Premiership and are short term patch up jobs that will end up on the treatment table picking up their £70k weekly!

Agree entirely with Dzeko comment, these agent / players are such greedy b———-s, all trying to get on the The Premiership gravy train👎 I would say yes for £2m and £25k a week or on yer bike, I wish MP would get these prospective pensioners off his radar, he seems to love some of the ones that played under him years ago! We all know the Premiership is a very tough competitive demanding league, it needs players with stamina and pace in all positions to compete, he as a Manager looking at WH hospital beds should see only to well what a waste of time signing has beens or those with historic injury problems!

Bucky, think you are a bit harsh on our Saturday performance, it was the best we have played since I can remember imo! We played with great energy and cannot fault anybody for lack of effort, Masuaku who has taken some real stick had a great game, no he can’t defend but he can fly down the flank with some decent crosses, so that’s his position for me in every game! can only say, it is Pellegrini’s first season, you have to get to know the team you have inherited, then assess what you have. I agree he made some awful signings imo but also some really good ones. Several were signed in desperation just to make up the squad numbers which I can understand! Sorry but can’t get enthusiastic about Women’s football, would rather cut my garden grass🤣 We need to recruit younger fitter signings, the oldies are knackered and can take longer to recover from knocks, yes they will cost more but we need a team than can sustain Premiership status and even more!

The London clubs, such as West Ham, have the benefit of two multi-tiered lower-level clubs that have developed numerous players who have gone on to play at the highest level - Chelsea, Spurs and West Ham have always had a good relationship with one in particular (Senrab) and German sides are attending game there as well.}

Thanks for the info Ed, I don’t keep track of all that intricate stuff, any idea who the offer was from and how much?

{Ed002's Note - Leipzig - I would rather avoid discussing the money.}

Hammer😂😂yes bang on mate unfortunately with 30plus signings! He’s 21 with decent experience for a younger player, yes of course plenty of others but doubt if he’s going to get many starts at Chelsea but of course you never, we would however baulk at any fee Chelsea put on him I think, as reckon he could be good for the present and future? ⚒⚒⚒.

Stevie, low scoring 4-2🤣 I don’t like predictions involving us, we’re so unpredictable, so I just have hopes of winning against certain teams, this could be a winnable game, but good side Leicester and of course always got Schmichael
still to get past! Just hope Arnautovic isn’t playing, we play so much better without that lazy, sulking man! COYI⚒⚒⚒.

Good positive predictions lads, but Leicester are no pushover on their day but neither are we! As TK says depending on what WH team turn up? I have a soft spot for Leicester as I had £20 on them to win the Premiership title in 2015/ 16 at 110/ 1😂 I placed the bet in November as they were so exciting to watch from the start, I won £2200👍 Had I placed the bet a month earlier they were 750/ 1, so could have won £15000😳 All the pundits were saying they won’t keep it going but I thought they were by far the most exciting team to watch that season, Jamie Vardy was amazing that season, the best in the Premiership terrorising opponents with his pace and finishing! So yes we can win, but so can Leicester!
