Good luck Slav at WBA, wish him all the best, 👍 Also good to hear Kevin Keen returning to coach Academy youngsters, always a good underrated dedicated professional imo. 👍👍.

Me too, hope slaves does well. The snake let him down and he never recovered. Such a shame as liked him.


2.) 15 Jun 2019 07:16:29
Glen, I really thought when we appointed Slav he would take us up to a different level in the Premiership with his National managerial and overseas experience, I was quite surprised he didn’t target some of his countrymen who are nearly all warriors? I read a quote after he was sacked reportedly said by Noble “He was to soft on us” that can be interpreted several ways, but that said to me, there were players taking the p—s, whether that was shirking, training, injuries or whatever, but to me that reflected badly on the the whole team being unprofessional! As the old saying goes “give some people an inch, then they take a mile” even when they are on £4m per year, but more than that they were in some ways deceiving the fans that are paupers by their standards and were cheating them!

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!

On BBC Football text this week, it stated that Wilshere was thinking of retirement, personal reasons were stated, I assume that was before we saw fit to offer him a fat contract for 3 years, I don't think that was a wise thing to say if he did indeed say that, that will only consolidate what some Wilshere doubters will think and I have long been one of the biggest doubters👎 Hope he can prove me wrong this coming season as I know he still has admirers on his past ability, flick ons and short passes do not impress me, they are all fine if added to a player that is prepared to run, chase during a game, not stand around holding their arms out looking around the pitch! I wonder what pre season does for his fitness?

Chelmsford1944

1.) 13 Jun 2019 11:11:00
You are right Chelms, this was before he came to us. There is a recent documentary out on Youtube done by Athlete's Stance (who go "behind the scenes" of athletes), and they have one on Jack's story released just two days ago. This is where the BBC have got it, and why they have just said this now.
I believe his retirement consideration was when his son started having fits and seizures, which coincided with a recovery from a broken bone injury.
JW was a risk, and one worth taking at the cost IMO. I like him a lot, and unlike a certain bicycle kicking geordie, i do not question his commitment to getting fit. I think he has just had an ankle problem that has never been fixed properly while at former clubs (which i hope is why our medical team had him out for so long in order to fix it permanently) . He has also been very unlucky with the hairline cracks.
Under MP he could be an unbelievable asset, as i am sure MP will find the best position and balance for him in our midfield. I watched him a lot down here in Bmouth, and he transitions play as well as anyone i have seen by taking the ball on the half turn very well in midfield.


2.) 13 Jun 2019 13:35:13
Nick, Lovely part of the country you live in👍 I am happy to concede to your view as you have obviously seen more of him than I have, I just can’t get my head around as to why with with his injury history we imo wasted money and gave him a 3 year contract, when his game record per season is clearly questionable? A years contract with an option yes, but not 3 years!
Whenever I saw B’mouth play on MOTD he was rarely in the team! I am not a purist admirer of Football, I love the players that put a lot of effort in for the majority of the game and imo Wilshere hasn’t been able to do that for years!


3.) 13 Jun 2019 14:13:21
I’m optimistic about Wilshere this season. I think he’ll have an important role to play.

A fit Lanzini and Wilshere; Fornals debut in the PL; Anderson in a more secure second season; a new, hungry striker; a developing CB partnership with Diop/ Balbuena; Fabulouski carrying on where he left off.

Chin up everyone. It’s going to be great! 😏.


4.) 13 Jun 2019 15:02:05
Markro, love your optimism, just hope you can say to me midway through the season “ I told you so Chelms” when JW is flourishing in the team and actually managing to sustain a number of 90 minutes full playing time and influencing play👍.


 

 

11 Jun 2019 07:15:45
The transfer window is open today abroad, so we may start hearing of something happening as MP apparently likes to get his business completed as early as possible once it starts! Only trouble is S. American players away for tournaments who he likes and others on holiday, but is the same each year so be interesting to see some real possible names emerging and not pipe dream names!

Chelmsford1944

1.) 11 Jun 2019 11:32:59
Which means it’s nearer to something happening. I must admit, I like the Gomez/ Lobotka package rumour, but I’m not holding my breath.

Bearing in mind that Roberto came from out of the blue, perhaps MP and H have a hatful other rabbits.

Interesting times.


2.) 11 Jun 2019 12:11:43
Markro, that’s right, they would have been accumulating them for a long while preparing for the window! Process then of elimination obviously, who wants to come and those that want European football! 👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.


3.) 11 Jun 2019 15:38:45
We are in talks to sign FORNALS another flair player while he's young and potentially very good I think we need C/ m or C/ DM. COYI.


4.) 12 Jun 2019 08:14:05
Fornals deal looks hopeful, Husillos and Pellegrini knew him from when both were at Malaga, increasing bid to €30m apparently, know idea what he’s like but sure a few posters on here will, also the most important MP and H⚒⚒⚒.

I think the less said to the better really not the direction we should be going.


2.) 16 May 2019 08:28:55
Wouldn't mind Wellbeck on a free - pay as you play deal because of injuries? Year contract to see if can stay fit? Then not tied up on another Carrol situation, and great coup if stays fit.


3.) 18 May 2019 14:51:31
Can’t see Chico leaving because of his wages and we would want to recoup part of the 16 million we paid out for him and he only has 12 months on his contract . we are all ready hearing rumors of a 35 mill budget plus what we bring in transfer wise I wouldn’t like to speculate on who could go or who could be promoted from the youngsters if MP feels Cullen Holland Johnson are to step up and I always felt musaka sitting front cresseell worked well. it would be nice to see Anderson as a no 10.

Been re-thinking the Balotelli rumour after looking at poster comments and now have changed my mind🤣 As Marko says could actually be a master stroke by P and H👍Wow! What a draw he would be to the ⚒⚒ fans, he could get us really buzzing or we could end up with 10 men quite often😂 but yeh really think we should go for him now if possible as long as he has no dodgy injury history, would get tongues wagging here that’s for sure and put bums on seats which the 2 Daves will love£££👍 also he could fuel Arnie into actually getting involved more as Arnie thinks he’s the natural number 1 up front and might not want to be outdone!

NH19, we seem to have had bought several players with very questionable attitudes in the past, so tends to make us wary of some new signings, it obviously happens elsewhere, but we aren’t interested in them😂Arnie, should have been sold in the January window for £30m straight away to China, he still does very little in a whole game! We need another front man that roughs the opposition up and can score goals, so it’s up to whose is available and wants to come to us, I would prefer an already established Premiership player personally or at least home grown if possible👍⚒⚒⚒.
