Any news on Joao Mario? Are we still looking at signing him?

I can't help but think that one of the main reasons West Ham have been so poor at home this season is the size of the pitch. At Upton Park the pitch was 100m long and 64m wide. The Olympic Stadium is 105m long and 68m wide.

The players just don't know what to do when other teams that can actually play the ball around utilise the extra space. Noble and Obiang were chasing shadows tonight as the Manchester City midfield just breezed pass them over and over again.

Either the squad needs to work on that size pitch over and over again in training each day, or the club need to change to dimensions back to the size at Upton Park.

It's a tough choice. move the pitch away from the stands even further, or continue to play into the hands of opposition teams that pass the ball around.

My understanding is that all the training pitches are the same size as the LS, Upton Park pitch was smaller due to the restrictions of the ground it self . I believe that the regulations regarding pitch sizes is quite strict .


2.) 02 Feb 2017 08:03:53
it' the same width as Palace and we played ok there.

My mate who supports saints has been telling me since fonte had his medical that he's lost his legs and never been the same since euros

Yeah I posted on this a few weeks back, they mentioned it on live commentary last night too that we should make the pitch smaller, but yes, our pitch is smallest allowed by EPL regulations, UP was smaller as we just couldn't make it any bigger

Apparently we turned down the chance to sign Martin Caceres in January because he wanted £100k a week.

If Caceres was willing to join at £50k a week I think he'd be a decent signing.

I also think a short term deal until the end of the season for Didier Drogba would be a good bit of business.

ssn reporting West Ham have pulled out of the race to sign Scott Hogan. Apparently it is Bilic that decided not to pursue the deal as he doesn't feel he needs Hogan given the players he already has at the club.

I can only assume that's because Bilic has identified another target or Calleri is staying. Given that Antonio and Carroll seem to be working well together up too, Sakho is due to return from injury imminently and Ayew is about to return from AFCON now Ghana have been knocked out.

Personally I am not disappointed if we miss out on Hogan. I think the guy has talent, but he would represent too much of a risk given his injury history.

Now that it looks unlikely Carl Jenkinson is going to join Crystal Palace, is there any chance we might go in for him on loan? Sullivan has said he is wants more British players, and Jenkinson had a decent season at Upton Park.

Am I hearing right? Ashley Fletcher and Reece Oxford are being loaned out?

WTF is going on? And what the hell is happening with our forwards


2.) 30 Jan 2017 13:02:12
He did well for us and I'd have him back . I know some will say not good enough but are most likely the same ones who said that fellani wasn't good enough for us to bid on last summer, go figure?


3.) 30 Jan 2017 13:03:17
Why have we re-opened talks with Hogan? Howe much more talking needs to be done with this player who clearly wants to come to us! Surely this should all have been ironed out over the last 6 months (seems like 6 months) when talks were ongoing!


4.) 30 Jan 2017 11:25:46
Hi ed is it true Hogan will sign today.

{Ed002's Note - I think soon.}


5.) 30 Jan 2017 13:14:32
Ed said yesterday that the talks are over the payment schedule Phil, don't know any more than that


6.) 30 Jan 2017 13:39:22
We have asked Chelsea to talk to fabrigas they are considering it as we want him as abig signing to replace payet


7.) 30 Jan 2017 14:13:45
I'd be amazed if this happens cesc next move would be back home or China in my opinion one that might is if Craig gordon went to Chelsea we might get begovic but neither deal will happen one in a million chance for me any.


8.) 30 Jan 2017 14:34:50
Wouldn't be a bad move that's for sure but what do Chelsea want in return


9.) 30 Jan 2017 16:29:19
A ground to play at when building the new bridge lol


10.) 30 Jan 2017 22:34:06
We have a massive advantage over villa regarding Hogan premiership football if we want him we will get him I know that sounds arrogant but it's the truth I'm hoping we pull a rabbit out of the hat like with Fernandez which very few people had any inkling he was going to sign so let's hope we get a good surprise and it's not sturridge.

With Kouyate and Obiang seemingly out the door and Lanzini out for the best part of the season, surely we have plans for central midfield recruitments? We can't lose 2 permanently and 1 through injury and only sign Wilshere?

Surely this means there are plans for one, perhaps two new midfield recruits? And surely these must be nearer to completion than is currently being reported?

Trust in MP (and don’t call me Shirley)


 

 

10 Jul 2018 10:22:22
Any idea who the outgoings will be?

Kouyate, Obiang and Antonio are all apparently available, whilst Burke and Cullen are supposedly on the way out.

What about the likes of Reid? Oxford? Snodgrass? Carroll? Hugill?

By the reports that I've seen mp and his team will be selecting the players that don't fit in with style of play will either be sold or loaned out to get the off the wage bill.
Everyone will be given a chance to impress as we saw with arnie a change of postition we saw a different player.
Wouldnt be surprised to see rice playing dm next season.


2.) 10 Jul 2018 10:42:04
I'd keep obaing
Maybe Oxford if no good offer with sell on
Let Byram go with a sell on
And it put sell on clause on burke.

Hi Ed's and ironmike. do you know if West Ham (or any other club) is looking at Ante Rebic from Frankfurt?

If the Portuguese courts have ruled in favour of Lisbon players terminating their contracts through just cause. how are we not offering contracts to some of these players.

Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho, Gelson Martinez and Bas Dost would all be great additions to the squad. And signing them for big sign on fees instead of paying a transfer fee is surely a no brainer?

Surely if we were willing to pay £30 million for Carvalho last summer, we would be happy to pay a large signing on fee now instead?

I would be all over that if I were in charge. Those players along with Wilshere on a free, Anderson £30 odd million, Diop £22 odd million, Mawson £20 odd million and Fabianski for £7 odd million would be an outstanding transfer window. We'd be improving all over the pitch.

Like mime said this morning. If sporting then try sue the club by the time all fees are added up it may not be that muvh if any difference.

Claudio Ranieri is leaving Nantes this summer. I'd take him, and I think he'd be interested as well.

Personally, I think all footballers are paid too much. £12k a week is still £624k a year which is INCREDIBLY good money, in fact he would earn the UK average ANNUAL wage in 16 days.

However, I get the fact that in today' market, £12k is a bit of an insult when you compare his salary to others in the squad.

In a dream world, I'd put all footballers on a basic ANNUAL wage of say £100k and then heavily boost their earnings with performance related bonuses. It'll never happen, but still. It would certainly put the fire in the belly of all footballers and make then determined to win.

Are we still looking at Joao Mario on loan with an option as well?

A centre back (probably a purchase)
Thiago Mendes / Thiago Maia / Danilo Pereira (probably a purchase)
Stefano Sturaro (Loan to buy)
Joao Mario (Loan to buy)
Bernard (Free signing)
Lucas Perez (probably a purchase)

When you consider the players we have already brought in. what a window!

I am loving this window, but I am struggling to see where the money is coming from for new signings now.

Apparently we are still looking to sign a few.
Lucas Perez from Arsenal for a couple million
Bernard on a free, but on high wages and a relatively high signing on fee
Sturaro from Juventus (I assume on loan)
Potentially another central midfielder (Maia / Mendes from Lille, Danilo from Porto)?
A centre back?

Who are we trying to ship out to help fund this? Surely we must be selling a few to pay for this transfer activity?

I mentioned him a few weeks back on this site as being my preferred centre back choice should we sign someone.

He has all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League and at West Ham.

I just don't know if we have the money to sign him now? He'd command quite a high transfer fee surely.

I can’t help but feel that the last 3 transfer windows have all been a precursor for this one.

We had a very low net spend, while still investing in a couple of players in the last couple of transfer windows, and something in the back of my mind is telling me that Manuel Pelegrini and Robert Mancini both said when previously approached that they would want a huge transfer budget in order to revamp what they deemed an average squad.

If memory serves me correct it was actually Ironmike that mentioned that way back when on this very site.

It also makes sense when you consider MP supposedly agreed to take charge of West Ham back in October. the board couldn’t be seen to give Bilic and Moyes nothing in terms of investment, but they didn’t really spend anything.

Makes me think that they were waiting for Pellegrini before they invested heavily.?
