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.

Mike / Ed, This site is obviously accessed within the club. One good thing is the comments I would think would be seen by the board, so they would have first hand knowledge of what us fans really think, on the other hand, they could be laughing up theirs sleeves at all the insults that are hurled towards them, then decide to add a few more to the rumour mill for us all to comment on and in some cases make some people look real p----s, but just as well they don't know it at the time! it's a bit like "you've been framed" except in writing not on camera! So might be a thought in future for some of us not to get too Angry over what we read, as it is "West Ham Rumours" not facts until the deals are done, there may be a few watching and having some fun at our expense?




08 Jan 2018 20:52:34
Seen first half of Brighton v C Palace, both in similar position to us, I would be well pleased with the work rate of my team if I was supporter of either of these teams! Nothing special from either but all working together as teams good flowing play👍😁 I see neither of these as relegation material playing as they have tonight! Wouldn't know most of them even by name, no big time Charlie's in either team!


1.) 08 Jan 2018 21:08:58
To be fair Chelmsford since moyes has taken over we are getting better, I know Sunday was poor but overall fitness and work rate has got better.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 21:44:52
Redrobbo2, absolutely agree with your comment 100%, wasn’t knocking us at all, merely commenting on this game. I am well pleased with Moyes’s contribution to our overall play from how we were, let’s hope he can continue in the same way. It just makes me think how these so called lesser teams gel together with a lot of unknowns as far as I am concerned. I am of course referring to about 5 or 6 unknowns we signed mostly on a free at the beginning of last season that included Nordveldt, etc, they were an absolute disaster. Think the only furvivor if am correct was Fernandes?



08 Jan 2018 08:46:37
Being an ok or all right young player simply isn't good enough for the Premier League, they may look ok playing against lower league sides, of course they need experience which is why they are loaned out, but how much time do you give them? Some must be very happy to jog along on the money they are paid, some on £10,000 minimum per week I know for a fact as most of us do, plus a car that most of us would never be able to afford! Good luck to the lads that are earning that, but as die hard fans paying week in week out travelling to watch your team you want players that can hit the ground running and make some kind of impression for our team! Age is no excuse, you are either good enough or you ain't good enough for the Premier League!


1.) 08 jan 2018 11:50:06
yesterday's games swore out that we need midfielders that are comfortable on the ball kouyate must be sold now, cullen not good enough don't care what commentators say that was shrewsbury come on not even a championship side two efforts on target appalling i'd rather have gone out personally.

2.) 08 jan 2018 11:54:50
spot on chelms no good dressing it up that cullen had a good game i didn't think he did anything positive other than pass the ball to a teammate come on these guys are on a fortune so that's the least the should be doing rice now that's a different story he's proved he can do it against premiership opposition and kouyate has got to be sold now along with ayew enugh is enough.



04 Jan 2018 22:06:53
So very close to great result, bloody joke Noble card then Lanzini hacked and play goes on and they score☹️ Worked bloody hard, defended brilliantly, might be some different opinions on those we have have a whine about. Great work lads, you did yourselves proud, well happy with that result😁😁What a goal Pedro 🏐🏐⚒⚒ no keeper could stop that!




02 Jan 2018 20:47:12
What's going on, a weeks holiday and losing to a team that played a couple of days ago, next goal is crucial if there is one. WBrom haven't won for 20 games! Need changes at half time, no good waiting until 10 mins to go. Moyes seemingly doesn't fancy Hernandez but he's got to bring him on surely?


1.) 03 Jan 2018 00:24:21
To me Hernandez doesn’t look fit. he could of got the one that Carroll scored. watch the replay . hammy mustvstill be tight.

COYI⚒⚒what a massive win today, whooo. Can't wait for MOTD tonight, we'll be within the first 2 games on tonight we must be! Arnie was massive today apparently, but credit to all the lads. Convinces me even more we need the men not the boys, their time will come later, when you're in the trenches, the experience is massive as long as the legs hold out? ⚒⚒⚒⚒🍺🍺🍷🍷had a few already to celebrate, well done Moyes, staff and players, thank you even though still a long way to go, but going in the right direction! ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️.

Well said Philmac, 100% agree👍👍 was really amazed when Bilic was sacked and he asked “ where did I go wrong” to the players, Noble apparently said “ you were to soft on us” was bemused that after all the rubbish performances Noble never said that to Bilic long ago to stem the rot? Of course that was in the paper so whether the article was true I have no idea?

11 Jan 2018 14:47:21
Philmac, lots of wishing and hoping there but nothing wrong with that, in the minority here maybe, but unless we replace obviously, don't want to see Obiang, Kouyate, Ginge go, much prefer to see them in than any of the present youngsters with the exception maybe of Rice? Just seen Mikes update re accepted offer of Smolov, so one wish might happen, but never done till it's done, especially if a top 6 club hijacks us, never heard of him actually, sounds like a Putin henchman😄 Reckon he's been set up to spy on us in London😄😄.

Mike, continuing the Sakho saga. I have gone along with the bad boy theory of Sakho, but always thought he had goals in him given the chance? Why is Hodgson willing to pay £10m for a potential problem boy and a systemic non professional, he has Tomkins to consult about his behaviour, would he not give him the nod to steer clear? WBA were willing to pay £15 but he failed a medical apparently, surely in the close knit circles of professional football the word gets around about certain players behaviour. In the light of others that have gone recently but have seemed to perform better elsewhere I am beginning to wonder where the club seems to be going wrong? I hope David Moyes can improve on who we already have and who we get if anybody in the future?

Thanks for the great updates Mike😄👍 May be a contentious comment but I will be sorry to see Obiang go if he does? Others that are either not doing it for us, or don't want to play for us, let them go! Sakho seems to have an attitude problem by all accounts, so would he be any different elsewhere, I think not, so would it make any difference who we sell him to, can't see him turning into a Harry Kane?

Well Mike, after reading about your major row re Carroll etc, doesn't this just inflame the anger juices of most of us ordinary working class people! Greedy, greedy, b------, you would hope that some of them would at least try to show some loyalty, I despise this type of greed, get the greedy ungrateful s--- off the books asap! So many fake threatening so called transfer requests unless their clubs win silverware to show their children/ Grandchildren, cynically I think that's b------s, it's to blackmail the club into paying them even more than the astronomical wages than they already earn, I would do a Fergie and f--- them off on the transfer list, as the saying goes "no playeri is Bigger than the club" they just think they are through their inflated egos! Fortunately I really believe Moyes is in the same mould as Fergie and doesn't tolerate these inflated egos!

Bkkhammer, your comment was exactly the thought that was in my mind! I have a natural suspicious nature, which although not always good, sometimes helpful as well! My first thought when I heard was, he was eying up Arnie, Ibrahimavic is finished, Arnie to me is a very close replica of Ibrahimivic, to me Arnie is a front man, not a winger as I have said previously, he's now getting more recognition banging in goals and assists with us in a short time than he ever did at Stoke in 3 years! the big guns will be watching, let's hope we can hang on to him and also hope they won't go for a double with Lanzini👎👎👎.

Agree we were rubbish, but still never thought we ever looked like losing. Agree with Mike about Brereton for Forest against Arsenal, what a prospect he looks👍😄 I hear and read about some of our stunning youngsters coming through, well not surprised Moyes hasn't tried many, apart from Rice! Yes some of the more senior players were anonymous, but 3 games in quick succession even for so called fit professionals is quite a lot?
