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😄👍⚒⚒.


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.

Read in D. Mail today we are offering £25m for Alfie Mawson😦 That's a lot of money, knew we were tracking him, we do badly need additional defenders with some legs, but it seems clubs are going to take advantage of our desperate position at present, but I'm sure we'd do the same! Don't know much about him, but it's also about who wants to join a possible sinking ship? I'm quite an optimist and believe as Mike says, there's a long way still to go, but will possible transfer targets feel the same way. However as most of them seem quite mercenary, I'm sure the lure of the money will be a major factor, unless any of the bigger boys step in front of us?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 15:01:00
Rumour about a swap deal involving mawson and ayew? Anyone know anything further?

2.) 28 Dec 2017 16:05:01
I'd take any Swansea player for AYEW starting with his brother but KI in midfield will do MAWSON has got potential but 25 MILL I'm not so sure and Mike is it true that OXFORD is to be sold for a pitiful 6.5mill really some talent he was then and can you confirm that bids have gone in for the Leganes midfielder and from what I've heard we are wasteing our time as the player only moved 8 months ago and another thing which I had to look twice at was we tried for N, ZONZI wait for it yeah you guessed a LOAN BID which you might be suprised was rejected suprise suprise he's nearly 30 who in their right mind is going to let a 29 old leave on loan I'd understand if he was 20 and had something to prove but here we go again another waste of three weeks with no intention of really getting him in when will the buttons who run our club learn any truth please MIKE.

it's a very difficult decision to remain with what you know until the end of the season, or seek a change not knowing what you may get? It's obviously who is available and would want the job? I can't believe a number of Managers in work or out of work have not been contacted, if that's the case I would have thought that nobody was interested? Slav is now in his third season and there is lots of discontent from the paying fans and it seems some players for whatever reasons?
If the rumour is that Slav has the next 2 games to prove things, I think that's a disgraceful ultimatum! Why should he care if that is the case as all he needs to do is jog along to the end of his contract, or he could do an Andy Carroll and send in the sick notes, I don't think he needs all that crap. The Managers and press all hype up the pressure thing, what pressure, try living on the average living wage with a mortgage and kids like a lot do, then forking out to watch our team play!




22 Oct 2017 11:59:05
I have great sympathy for Adrian, reading he will go in January, why not rotate the Keepers, instead of letting him only play in the Mickey Mouse Cup games. No doubt the last straw was Bilic in the D. Mail saying Hart doesn't make mistakes, so don't worry Adrian you won't even be considered! He will be a good buy for another club, shabilly treated!


1.) 22 Oct 2017 13:22:30
Adrian was terrible last year, he was costing us goals all over the place, in fact he was that bad he was dropped for Randolph who doesn't even look good in the championship, let him go he won't improve our team at all.

2.) 22 Oct 2017 15:25:35
In reply to Redrobbo2, I was saying Adrian was shabbily treated, not that he should be first choice. The article by Bilic in the paper in my opinion humiliated him without mentioning his name. I have been very critical of Adrian, in fact I would have preferred to have seen Randolph stay, but he obviously had visions of the Managerials opinion of Hart! We are not going to have 2 first choice Keepers, but what we have in Adrian is at least an experienced Keeper.

3.) 22 Oct 2017 15:35:48
Don't agree that Adrian's was poor last year he hardly played in fact it was probably Randolph who let's us down yet Bilic kept on with him don't forget Adrian was player of the year just a couple of years ago.

I'm just back from the under 23 game which was excellent despite being a 0 0 drawer everything that Friday's game wasn't and have to say trott looks a very assured young keeper so maybe it's time to give Hart back to city and make trott number 2 to Adrian

Declan Rice is a very accomplished young captain Talks, directs and plays far ahead of his years - a West Ham captain of the future without a doubt.

4.) 22 Oct 2017 19:52:49
take it robbo is a hart lover and adrian saved us in more games than he cost us name one game hart as saved us this season think hard robbo.

5.) 22 Oct 2017 19:55:57
adrian saved us in more games than he cost us robbo take it u love mr dandruff name me one game he's saved us this season think hard robbo.

6.) 22 Oct 2017 20:17:07
wheres the toffes fans who piped up how good they are your as bad as us.

7.) 23 Oct 2017 00:58:02
Read my post GKG66 I haven't evene mentioned Hart read hard, if you think adrian was good last year your deluded he was at fault on more than one occasion guess you have a short memory, he was ok for a season but as I said he got dropped last year for a player that is barely championship standard now.

{Ed001's Note - I will be honest, I think Hart was average at his best and is now awful, but Bilic had to do something with the keepers. Randolph was up there with Mignolet as the worst keeper in the Prem, so dodgy it was scary. Adrian was the most inconsistent and nowhere near good enough either. He has good reactions but that is it.}

8.) 23 Oct 2017 08:47:32
Same old comments by mr angry.

9.) 23 Oct 2017 09:07:00
i think joe hart is shocking and I have said it from the beginning don't rate him and never have.

10.) 23 Oct 2017 11:16:05
I don't rate any of our keepers.

11.) 23 Oct 2017 13:02:33
mr angry grow up dave you immature little boy you and robbo sit in your ivory towers slagging players off and me but never is there any substance behind your arguments robbo didn't say he liked hart but slagged adrian off who in my opinion is better than hart I never said adrian was top draw where was you and robbo when I said SNODGRASS was a championship player at best and ARNAUTOVIC is overrated that's SUBSTANCE and dave you was the one who said BENTEKE was a donkey i'd like a few donkeys like him rather than the ones we got.

12.) 23 Oct 2017 13:05:12
the two managers we should go for are HOWE OR WAGNER that's my opinion any shouts robbo or dave.

13.) 23 Oct 2017 13:51:00
I think you should take over as you seem to know everything. You are obviously the man wh need and should take advice from. I'm immature? Coming from the guy who likes insulting people lol ok buddy. Go and lay down in a dark room to calm down.

14.) 23 Oct 2017 13:56:58
Yes we all know you didn't rate Snodgrass. The only one who didn't I'm assuming and the rest of us loved him in guessing. And I don't rate benteke. personal opinion. If you need any help n dealing with your anger issues please pls call the nhs for some anger management pal.

15.) 27 Oct 2017 03:02:35
Same old same old mr angry it's called voiceing opinions dave not being angry it's a site to put names out there and voice opinions i'm not the one who picks up on everybody's post and you never ever put names out there just sit back and slate people for theirs and I'm insulting your the one feeding off of others and slating people Carlton cole springs to mind enough said

16.) 27 Oct 2017 03:08:30
Your missing the point dave read my post it's called opinions have you got any yours truly MR ANGRY p. s it's boring now buddy p. s buddy where did you get that word from 1970's.



21 Oct 2017 14:04:39
Apparently Hart was in a Casino last night after the game with some friends, it would be a nice gesture if he and the team donated some money to a local charity after last nights performance when hard working class people pay and travel to watch that lot of rubbish last night. Most are out of touch with reality! Show some humility.


1.) 21 Oct 2017 21:32:54
Said from day dot HART ain't good enough Adrian is a far better keeper than mr dandruff that's what he should stick at he's only playing for the money and if he can get away with it then keep gambling at casinos we will fund it.

2.) 21 Oct 2017 22:44:27
Yep I had big doubts about hart some time back when he was shipped out of citte.

Great, great, point yesterday, if another current relegation battler had achieved that draw yesterday I would have been sick! We all have our players we love or dislike but we need not to lose games almost as much as we need to win games now, it doesn't matter how we get at least a point and against a top 6 side, well done all the lads! To contain the likes of Hazard, Willian, Morata and restrict them to a draw was a huge result, well done Moyes and all the team👍😄 Hart had a great game and kept us the point, Arnie has become such a player for us now not only as an attacker but defensively as well👍 His work rate is tremendous, he toils tirelessly and terrorise defences, also provides great assists as he did yesterday. I rate him as. One of the best players we have ever had at the momentt in my opinion ⚒Defensively we were great, any pessimist can comment negatively, but they aren't worth listening to anyway when you achieve a draw away from home against Chelsea, to keep attacking world class players at bay for 90 minutes is no mean achievement, any fan with half a brain should know that! Will give us bags of confidence now for the Stoke game, lets hope we can keep the momentum going and capitalise on it next Monday night. COYI ⚒⚒⚒.


1.) 09 Apr 2018 08:53:21
Agree Chelmsford, when you look at our last 3 away results (4-1, 4-1, 3-0) that was a massive improvement and massive result, it’s a shame we’ve had more players injured than fit this season.



01 Apr 2018 13:19:54
Watched the highlights on MOTD twice😄👍thought we were magnificent, every man! Apart from those missing I would find it very difficult to say on yesterday's performance who should be on the "out list" that has been talked about? Don't think we missed Lanzini at all? As often happens others often live in the shadows of certain players, but can step up to the plate when called upon to do so when given the opportunity! it would seem unfair to pick out individual performances on a day like yesterday, but Arnie terrorised the defence, what a fantastic buy he has been, at least Slav can be thanked for that, he has everything on his day! But I wouldn't like that to detract from the performance of all the team as strikers allways get the headlines. Masuaku, Kouyate, Mario, brilliant work and endeavour to create the goals! I listened to the commentary on 5 Live, the atmosphere was electric, I was off the settee punching the air each time we scored🙌👐 surely nobody can still say the Stadium lacks atmosphere with our great partisan supporters in full voice. We now have a magnificent up to date stadium that can have almost 60,000 fans roaring you on, the Boleyn is dead and buried, move on, accept change! We need to keep the momentum going, as long as we don't roll over against the big boys we still have to play, we can and will do it COYI ⚒⚒⚒⚒.


1.) 01 Apr 2018 17:37:34
Imagine how good the atmosphere would be with the proposed increase to 66,000 - 70,000 or better yet we bought the stadium in the future and got rid of the running track.

They all played well yesterday perfect response and we take that confidence into our next game at Chelsea can see us having a real go at them.



11 Mar 2018 08:01:06
I can safely say after yesterday's scenes I will never ever attend another game, not because of the team, but because of the minority scum that exist within our club. I would love those that caused the biggest problems on the pitch and shouting vile abuse to be named, shamed and banned for life! It's all very well some people on this site seeming to condone their actions, but what does this teach the children that fans take with them. It could have been uglier than it turned out, you should be able to attend, watch and leave in safety! We've all had to listen to loud mouth abuse by some fans that we don't want to near but have no choice, but this was on another scale not to be tolerated! What affect this will have on our team I cannot even contemplate, who will want to play for us in future, those scum have created a "poison chalice" that will be very difficult to shake off, other clubs will be laughing their heads off at us and rightly so, what has that done to the hardcore poor supporters that still want to travel to away games, they will taunted maybe beyond endurance I would think?


1.) 11 Mar 2018 08:41:55
I whole heartedly agree with you, the scenes and reaction was an utter disgrace. If you are angry or unhappy and you feel the need for this stupid rubbish then do it at the end of the season not mid season when we need unity. We actually did not play that badly until the goal, and at 1-0 down on 66minutes the game is simply not over, when the fans came on the game was done.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 09:32:08
Well said. sad day for my club.



10 Mar 2018 10:33:19
I wonder when we'll stop having to think " this is a must win game"? Not surprised Hart is playing today, Adrian maybe under par but defence cannot be blameless, also surprised Antonio not starting according to media? Hope we can all watch MOTD tonight for those not attending?


1.) 10 Mar 2018 12:23:51
have you seen our run in Chelmsford we've got city, united, Chelsea arsenal, Leicester, Everton and the way we are playing and with our injuries this for me is a must win and a win still might not be good enough depending on other results given how tight it is down in the relegation zone. COYI.

2.) 10 Mar 2018 12:53:05
Don’t panic 😉 we still could points from stoke and Southampton 👍.

3.) 10 Mar 2018 13:53:35
Agreed but the Swansea result was dreadful and another we thought we could win.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 14:58:29
I wish I could share your optimism lads we can hope and pray at least and if we go down we all know who to blame and a couple of things I want to comment on,1 if I was CHIQUARITO i'd demand to leave and 2why did we buy HURGILL if he ain't going to play apart from 10 minute cameos when we are beaten talk about lambs to slaughter and that's exactly the way this football clubs being run I'm afraid. COYI.

5.) 10 Mar 2018 15:54:04
As always phil I remain upbeat, soon be over and the summer madness will begin lol.

6.) 10 Mar 2018 16:20:57
Gkg66, I don’t bother to look any further than the next game now there’s no point in looking to far ahead as far as I’m concerned, it can only depress you, but from what you have said are the games ahead it doesn’t look good😠👎 However there are worse things in life happening!

7.) 10 Mar 2018 16:32:40

As much as I don't want it to happen it's what our owners have brought us to such a shame.



03 Mar 2018 16:38:17
What a shameful score line, absolute disgrace to get so comprehensively steamrollered from fellow strugglers. Expected maybe against top 6 sides, bloody laughing stock unfortunately. Feel so so sorry for any travelling supporters, they should have their money returned by the board! Ayew must be laughing his legs off!


1.) 03 Mar 2018 16:45:26
What has happened to our team? It’s hard to watch them now it really is. To be fair think one of the ayews should have seen a yellow.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 16:58:22
I really really fear we are heading for the championship we have still got to play MAN CITY, UNITED, CHELSEA AND ARSENAL and our last two are LEICESTER AWAY AND EVERTON AT HOME both on the way we are playin are going to beat us so I am sorry to say but we are going to rely on the other struggles doing us a favour and we have to say the CLOWNS ARE going to GET EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESERVE ANS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

IMO, Benteke no thanks, can’t hit s barn door, Wilshire no thanks another sick note and in my mind a greedy so and so and lazy b———, vastly overrated still delaying a new contract hoping for others to show an interest so Arsenal can raise their offer! Tomkins I will never know why Slav let him go, bloody joke for £6m each time I see him on MOTD he always makes a significant contribution and gives a 100%. so we have no chance him coming back I don’t think?

Nostradamus, you are making a very valid point on your post. It will do no players confidence any good if he knows he is on the “out list” unless it suits him? The only thing I can say say which may sound perverse is, does Moyes think that this might actually motivate some players to prove him wrong? Also Moyes did have an 11 year stint at Everton without being sacked! I will say however if we had the luxury of choosing managers before he was offered the job, he wouldn’t have been my choice, but beggars can’t be choosers, simple as that? Some fans appear in my opinion to be deluded about our club, we have done nothing for years, got great supporters, pay big wages, but we are are losers unfortunately. Big, big, changes needed at board level to revitalise the club before it’s to late, lack of ambition by the board as long as the £££ is roiling in. How I envy the likes of even Burnley what an inspiration Dyche is on a shoestring budget, also Brighton, Palace, Swansea all playing far better than us collectively! Motivation throughout the club needed, it’s been a holiday camp it seems to me for far to long, to many on the “gravy train”.

WH4ever, in complete agreement with you, well said😄👍 Very frustrating league to gain promotion from with a lot of former biggish sides all trying to get back to the Premiership. Of course the danger is also of course the continuing downward spiral should things get even worse, we all know never say never, as I said previously, no team has a divine right to be in any of the top leagues! I cannot understand why we have signed Hugil for £9m and not at least giving him a few games, surely if Moyes thinks we have an abundance of strikers why didn’t we use that extra £9m to increase our offer on signing a decent young established player, I’m sure we could all think of several that would have gone straight into our team instead of benchwarming!

Mike, I don’t consider myself to be a detective, however to my knowledge only 2 have guessed at the “ mysterious ex manager” you have told Stubbo, no it’s not Redknapp, so my money is on the other guess that you did not dispute😄 If so he wasn’t particularly successful as a Manager was he? If the mystery man is well thought of, why was he not bought on board originally as part of the team. I know behind the scenes works in mysterious ways& perhaps the mysterious man prefers to remain as anonymous. as possible?

I would say the reason we may keep Hart is, he may be the cheapest option, cynical but I think possibly true! Butland would be too expensive and would go to a more successful club should Stoke be relegated! All obviously depends who would move and wants to come to us, if indeed any do? Think outfield is the priority, but who for Christ sake would be available and willing to come to us again? No good playing fantasy football with who we would like to have, we need to think in the real world of we are W. H. We all know we are cheapskates in the transfer market and a potential laughing stock compared to other Premier League clubs in the transfer market. In my opinion we need some established players that have Premiership experience or have been playing at a top level elsewhere!

Dabber, wouldn’t disagree with your team or comments for the arsenal game, only thing that makes me think we have no chance is, you've Forgotten to pick a keeper😄 apart from your team I wouldn’t disagree with is, i would play Adrian in goal! Think there are some that would disagree with Noble and Kouyate, but I wouldn’t, football is all about opinions like everything in life, we have our subs to try to change things if necessary, The win would keep us up.

Kram, to me the answer is simple, the Manager knows who will want to be moved on whoever it is, speak to them indidually, if they want to go, start playing without them as soon as we may be safe! No good if a player doesn’t want to play for a club, the days of any loyalty with most players have long gone, they are all travellers! For any manager to try to hold on to a sought after player from a top 6 club isn’t going to happen if you’re playing for a bottom 6 club. As long as we get the going rate for whoever it is from whatever club, we have to deal with it as other clubs in a similar situation to us have to! Unfortunately all the previous trouble and discontent among fans towards the club in general may be a big hinderance in trying to get the signings we may be interested in!

Stevie, Antonio made a mistake at Palace but there were 10 other players in the team, you could argue that maybe if there hadn’t been other players in the opposing area at that time in the game he wouldn’t have had anybody else to aim his attempted cross too. Yes maybe inexperience helped cost us 2 points, but there could have been several players yelling at him to take it into the corner, can’t remember any player close to him at the time to help out. I’m sure he felt bad enough by the publicity given to that mistake, but I don’t think Joe Hart’s comment on TV after about being unprofessional was in itself professional towards a fellow team mate! In my view he’s always a willing runner and grafter in the team!

Makes me wonder sometimes, do we actually have any scouts or if we do, do they work from home, or are they too busy watching kids for the future in 10 years! We need the players now to start negotiating with for the new season!
