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


4.) 02 Feb 2017 10:02:13
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.

I think Declan Rice is a great talent, with a big future ahead of him

But am I the only one that thinks an offer of £50-70 million would be a little too good to pass up?

Sell Arnautovic for £35 million and we could rebuild our entire squad by selling Rice, Arnautovic and a £30-40 million transfer budget.

DIE_4, Every player young or older has a price, no player is indispensable or irreplaceable, but of course potential gems are hard to come by and maybe we have one in Rice? Providing he stays injury free, he can surely only get better and maybe his stock value will increase even more over the coming seasons. Unless a monumental fee was offered for him that we would find very difficult to resist, then I hope he remains with us for at least maybe 5 seasons? We want to build alongside our best players surely to progress as a Premiership team to encourage other top players to join us and progress, not to sell our prized assets to other clubs?


2.) 20 Feb 2019 20:36:42
I have to disagree. Yes it's a lot of money. but I thought we wanted to get away from being a selling club. why would we sell so early in his career.

Secondly, yes with both players gone. £100 mil would be great. but would you trust our board to replace and upgrade our squad? We saw what 100 mil got us in the summer.


3.) 20 Feb 2019 22:58:56
Spot on dave and look at our next opponents FULHAM they've spent best part of £100 mill if not more and look at them now i'm not saying that would be repeated if we were given that sort of money and if we have the slightest bit of ambition the squad should be built around RICE for me on ARNAUTOVIC if an offer of close to £35 million came in then yes and that's only because of his age simple as that but on our boards thinking then nothing but nothing would supriseme and I mean nothing that's 3 nothings so you know my opinion now. COYI.

I get Arnie is likely off, and for the money being touted I'd do all I can to sign Maxi Gomez as his replacement.

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?

DIE_4_WHUFC

1.) 10 Jul 2018 10:38:21
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.

With Arnautovic almost out the door, it is obvious West Ham are going to try and sign a replacement.

There have been a lot of names banded about in recent names but I've got to say, there have been a lot of names mentioned that would require large investments that just don't excite me.

Morata for example. he would cost a fortune, is probably on big wages, would probably want to increase his wages to move across London to a club not in Europe, and I'd rather not go near him.

On the other hand, two names have been mentioned today. Maxi Gomez and Krzysztof Piatek that REALLY excite me. Both are young, both play for good sides but not huge clubs, meaning they probably aren't on giant wages, both have been attracting interest of the big boys, both are physical and both have been prolific in the last season or two.


If we get one of these two, I would be a VERY happy Hammer.

I don't think older players should be given high wages just because of what they have achieved in the past. Obviously there are a few exceptions, but I'd rather see youngsters signed that are hungry to prove their worth.
