12 m for Fonte wouldn't by Defoe as he had no sell on value get real we won't pay 12 m for 32 year old. Here we are interested in Grey from Burnley good prospect.


1.) 19 Jan 2017 13:17:12
Surely can't be 12 mil.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 09:32:29
Reports on ssn showing 8



22 Aug 2016 11:53:32
Can anyone tell me what's happening with Sakho? . If he is staying he has to be a better option than Valencia. Yesterday highlighted the need for a good quick striker.


{Ed002's Note - He won't leave without a replacement being found.}

1.) 22 Aug 2016 12:26:27
NOTHING at oresent he's still not fit. So he can't play and it's doubtful he will be fit enough to shift this window, I would not be totally suprised because of this, IF he is re inter-grated into the squad , WH lost the chance to be rid of Valencia, this window, he will probably be outed January, IRONMIKE.

2.) 22 Aug 2016 12:46:07
Thanks Mike would be good to see Velencia moved out and new blood in.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 13:17:22
calleri looked class yesterday, valencia's can't even play a simple pass balls always stuck in his feet and I've never seen anybody trip over the ball as much as him, agree we won't get rid of him but who'd want him how he's scored so many international goals is astounding, calleri has to be our main striker at this time he looks very good. COYI.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 13:52:54
We all seem to have short memories. I agree he's been poor so far since coming back from injury, but his first season he was great and talk of big money transfer to Chelsea and we all wanted him to stay. Just playing devils advocate but if he got his confidence back and Sakho got fit and was also the player from 2 seasons back I think it would be like 2 new signings. not saying that will happen but stranger things have happened!

5.) 22 Aug 2016 15:17:42
I'd let them both go they've had 2 seasons each, valencia is actually getting worse I think poor positioning, ball control no strength , think it's time we cut our losses and moved on with him and I don't want sahko back in team his ego is big enough imagine how bad he will be if we let him back.

6.) 22 Aug 2016 18:07:39
totally agree robbo and my brothers a season t/ holder at chelsea and knows staff that work their they were never interested in valencia, and the sakho thing is refuses to go on pre season tour and can't get himself fit he should never put the shirt on again that's my opinion, seems since playing at the london stadium ZAZA has done a u turn and wants to come now is it true MIKE?

7.) 22 Aug 2016 20:19:36
YES he would come, JUVE want to sell outside of Italy, but the Wolfsburg deal went sour so IF a deal could be done with WH, they would take it I think they won't take less than 28m euros, probably with some add ons, WH want To loan TRY and BUY if you like firs to see what's he's like in the premier, TO ME Zaza would be fine in the premier he is a quality player, WH are looking short term so BONY is favourite, however IF JUVE agree to a loan to buy, don't be shocked IF we take both of them AS Bony will only be there for a short time IF his china deal comes to fruition IRONMIKE.

8.) 22 Aug 2016 20:44:19
I like zaza I think his work ethic and physicality are right for the PL don't think he will have to many problems adapting he can play up top on his own and will chase everything.



21 Jun 2016 20:23:03
Any more interest around Callum Wilson would be a good buy, good strong player.


1.) 21 Jun 2016 20:30:19
There doesn't seem to be any further interest from WH at oresent, IRONMIKE.

2.) 22 Jun 2016 08:09:28
Perisic looked really good last night, class act. Why don't we go for him!

3.) 22 Jun 2016 09:31:16
I think we need to have a quick sort of round up cause so many names being linked. Anyone got anything they wish to contribute! Apparently Lacazette bid dead and buried and Batshuyi wants Champs League football. Wolfsburg have apparently bid 25m euro for Zaza. Braithwaite Apparently in talks with us? Carlos Bacca is apparently waiting to find out what's happening with AC Milan takeover. Not heard anymore on Fekir, Ben Yedder or Slimani but Leicester apparently very interested in Slimani. Wissam Ben Yedder at Toulouse scored 17 times with a team that finished 17th? Gregory van der Wiel is set to disappoint his Premier
League suitors by joining Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

{Ed002's Note - The situation with Lacazette remains the same - it was never going to be easy dealing with Lyon who want more for a sale to an English side than elsewhere - the CL is what the player wants.

Michy Batshuayi has not been subject to an o0ffer from West Ham and whilst Marseille has spoken to three sides about the player one of those has stepped back. The reality is he will move this summer and I don't expect it will be to West Ham as it stands right now.

I would not rule out Bacca although the player says he is happy with Milan but he wants changes - and they would be happy to sell as they don't want players demanding changes. His agent has made a further unsolicited approach to West Ham and another English side but given his age and price it would be a tough call to make.

Fekir is another tough call given the past season was lost to injury, his desire to play for another side - and how would WHU fit him in to the side.

Juventus will let him leave in the summer for anyone matching their asking price - which is very high, unless they lose Morata when they will look to hold on to Zaza. It looks likely that Juventus will lose Morata and are not interested in the Real Madrid proposal to send him back to Turin. There is interest from WHU but for now, nothing.

Braithwaite remains a very good option for WHU.

Interest from WHU in Slimani is on the back burner right now.

I would certainly strike Ben Yedder off your list Phil - apart from their being no WHU interest his future is pretty much mapped out.

Gregory van der Wiel wants Champions League Football and after not being able to agree terms with Roma or Monaco may need to take up the option of the money but no European football at Galatasaray. There was no WHU interest.}

4.) 22 Jun 2016 11:01:31
Thanks for your update ED0002. Of all the strikers we've been linked with (and there are quite a few) who can you REALLY see ending up at West Ham.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that WHU has not been making multiple offers per day on players - it really doesn't work like that and it would be chaotic if it did. I cannot say who will actually sign, I can tell you where there is interest when I know it. Braithwaite would be a good buy and it can happen. After that, I suspect it may take a while before anything is clear.}



11 Jun 2016 14:33:37
What's happened to our interest in Slimani? He would be so good for our style of play. any news Mike.


1.) 11 Jun 2016 20:15:09
Hey Corbyhammer is there a local Hammers support club in Northants? Just moved from Beds to Desborough.

2.) 11 Jun 2016 22:20:40
Booshmoon not that I know of but there are one or two hammers around. do you go down to the games. I've got my ticket for the juve game.

3.) 11 Jun 2016 22:54:34
I was an ST holder up to end this season but not going next season too many commitments! But yes got Juve ticket!

4.) 12 Jun 2016 00:49:41
Maybe get together and find a pub during the new season to watch the hammers.

5.) 12 Jun 2016 07:56:30
Yer your not far away from me. my daughter comes with me all the time we'll get something planned.

6.) 12 Jun 2016 09:52:50
Nice one will be good to meet some fellow Hammers.



09 May 2016 18:06:01
Ironmike who is the 30m euro striker we have bid for?


1.) 09 May 2016 18:33:23
Emile heskey.

Well it has taken nearly 3 years but there can be no grumbles from us fans about the stadium and investment. We are moving in the right direction now. That team today was probably one of the strongest I have seen over my 55 years of supporting the hammers. Can’t wait to see how Lanzini will fit into this team. We are not finished with the investment so hopefully we will continue to improve. Like me I am sure the beer will taste even better tonight, have a good one to all our supporters tonight. COYI.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 16:14:49
LOOKING like we are heading in the right dir3ction. IRONMIKE.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 17:29:14
Thought Cresswell was great today, really showed we can ship Masuaku out and get a backup who actually believes they are a left back.



28 Dec 2018 17:19:50
West Ham United is delighted to announce that Declan Rice has signed a new long-term contract until summer 2024, with a further one year option for the Club to extend. Get in there COYI.


1.) 28 Dec 2018 18:28:01
Heaves huge sigh of relief.



23 Sep 2018 16:52:32
Mike have to agree with most scores although I thought Obiang was an 8.Can someone please tell Masuaku that throw ins are supposed to be thrown to your own player?


1.) 23 Sep 2018 17:04:58
Yes rumour abounds he is actually colour blind IRONMIKE.



26 Aug 2018 16:48:00
Yer look how well Fredericks played after realising he was not an automatic pick. Wilshire seems to think he will get picked whatever so sometimes warming the bench can be a good thing for all concerned. We don’t want another season like last year.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 19:50:19
Sanchez needs to start, we looked better with a natural holding midfielder in that role.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 10:53:36
Agreed and put Obiang next to him . Back 3 with diop balbuenna and ogbonna. Cresswell and Fredericks outside.



26 Aug 2018 13:29:02
Lets be honest after 3 games we would have expected 3 points so far so the only blip really is the Bournemouth game last week. There were signs of improvement yesterday. Wolves at home will not be an easy game and the improvement needs to continue. Cresswell needs to come in at left back and change Wiltshire as he is just a passenger at present.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 16:18:23
Hiya CORBY I'm startin to believe that wilshires come to us for an easy time because he's got to put an awful lot more effort in or be dropped because no one player is worth more than the team that's for sure mate. COYI.

2.) 26 Aug 2018 19:37:40
Whorya66, well said about Wilshire, lazy, greedy, effing waste of £5m wages, frightened to break into a sweat👎👎.

A few quality signings and we are all feeling happier. Still think the squad needs a few more additions. Carroll and Sacho need to go as we can't carry anyone in our squad. The future looks better than this time last year as we are signing quality not quantity. COYI.

Lads shall we start a fund to buy Braithwaite for Phil? I for one agree that he is definitely worth the risk at todays inflated price.

Ironmike can you set up a meeting with the trotters to kick start our 'Braithwaite for Phil' campaign.

Keep the faith lads, love the banter and all the rumours.

Where has that battling performance been all season. Good point but have to get 10 points from next four games achievable with the same application. COYI.

Don’t agree with this tiredness nonsense they should try a real job before they can say they are tired. Train for a few hours a day, eat the right food, top medical care and well rewarded, we supporters would run through a brick wall to be wearing the claret and blue shirt. Mike you are right we are still developing as a square and will probably need a least 3 more transfer windows to even think about being in the top 8 bracket.

Moyes not motes? .

30 Apr 2018 20:28:07
Chelmsford don't get me wrong I don't think Moyes is the answer but Pearce is certainly not a manager to take us forward (although that is not such a bid step at present) . Peace may have passion but no technical ability. If he gets the role we will get as many points as his technical ability and that is nil. I for one have been a long suffering fan but the last two years have been the worst that I can remember. Big wages for little endeavour along with fake news and signings from the board. I don't want to see us go down but sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward . but let's hope this is still in the prem next year when we can start with maybe renewed optimisium but that means a summer of investment and this ain't going to happen.
