Fellow Hammers, I'd be interested to hear what your collective views are on Yaya Toure. For me I'd offer him a contract of 1 possibly 2 years. At peak he was quality, now his legs have gone some he's likely to be happy to sit in and play the DM role. Not only that whilst were building for the future the newbies could learn a shedload about the PL from him .

Not for me, Dabba. Too many candles on his cake. 😉.

Mike the other reason i'd sell ANTONIO is we could ask for €23-25million and with the sales of kouyate and obiang i know we need two players minimum there would be enough money to buy RAFINHA and i know Barcelona want a sale but buy him for €30-35 million and there's the money for a reasonable first instalment to keep them happy he's very good and would slot in nicely with jack the only downside is they are both left footed but we can live with that . COYI.

The next player leaving is sam byram to notts forest not sure if loan or permanent.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 08:36:13
Hi Dabber, I have to agree with Marko on this one, although there is no doubting that he is an experienced footballer and more importantly a winner I feel we would be moving in the wrong direction with him, a very good point about giving his experience throughout the club but it would be an expensive venture as I would imagine he would want in excess of 100k per week. I remember when Big Scam brought in Song, IMO what a liabilty he was.

5.) 26 Jul 2018 09:00:37
Guys with Yaya Toure he brings a wealth of experience of Europe and champions league . Maybe a pay as you play contract for a year and see how it goes.

IMO if tight on wages I’d rather use the money on younger players ⚒.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 09:03:35
"too many candles on his cake" that is brilliant in so many ways.

7.) 26 Jul 2018 10:10:04
WH4ever - nice to be appreciated.

8.) 26 Jul 2018 10:37:25
WH up till now have never showed interest in Yaya despite media comments I would be surprised if we went down that road. IRONMIKE.

9.) 26 Jul 2018 11:43:43
To conclude: that’s a Nono Toure from me.

10.) 26 Jul 2018 11:59:46
That one was not as good Markro, c'mon now we are all expecting high quality.

11.) 26 Jul 2018 12:22:19
With Toure its seems some are saying his coming some are saying his not its up and down really for YOYO Toure.

12.) 26 Jul 2018 15:35:06
Blimey! The pun epidemic has started.

We should seriously be considering Kagawe . he is running this match and would be a great replacement for Lanzini

Dabber Iron

1.) 02 Jul 2018 20:45:50
Think that would be perfect replacement.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 22:02:26
Really rate some of the Japanese / Asian players, we should seriously consider some of these players, they run until they drop!

3.) 04 Jul 2018 11:03:50
How true is it Mike we are close to landing inglese from napoli on loan?



26 May 2018 12:18:31
I love Arnie however if Maurinho is serious if he gave us 2 of Martial, Lingaard, Rashford, Darmian or Blind I'd take it .

Dabber Iron

1.) 26 May 2018 13:21:55
Only Rasford and Linguard for me.

2.) 26 May 2018 13:35:02
Rashford martial but this is ridiculous seeing as they probs both 50 mill each min.

3.) 26 May 2018 15:12:32
All of those players would want CL lol.

4.) 26 May 2018 16:28:42
Read darmian can go for q2 but wants italy don't know how much truth in that there is.

5.) 26 May 2018 17:22:34
They might all want CL but won't get it at Utd, . Apart from Lingard they are all bench warmers!

6.) 26 May 2018 18:59:55
12 not q2.

7.) 27 May 2018 22:17:14
DARMIAN will be going home 100%. COYI.



12 May 2018 15:23:11
I'm expecting to be shot down in flames here and possibly break the record for most "disagrees" but I think we should have a long look at Mario Balotelli . Had 2 great seasons in France and we have had fiery troublesome Italians before who have become legends.

Dabber Iron

1.) 12 May 2018 16:26:53
Hiya Dabber here's your first disagree sorry mate but too much baggage and too little goal/ appearance return when in the UK previously both at sittee and Liverpool.

2.) 12 May 2018 19:25:50
Arnie has just settled and imagine Mario setting him off again lol car races around the stadium any one? Lol, seriously if he can be controlled and do a job, we could do a lot worse.

3.) 12 May 2018 20:23:19
Hi Merceri, can't disagree with you mate, his return at City and L'pool wasn't great but at Nice he's been on fire. Talking of fire, Jason apparently when he was at MC he held a firework party in his house and wanted to buy a sealion for his indoor pool! With Arnie as well it definitely wouldn't be dull!

4.) 13 May 2018 08:34:35
Maybe that’s what West Ham needs again SOME REAL CHARCTERS! Just think of some of the wild ones we have had and done well with them, they add an edge and passion and sometimes a bit of madness . Give us lot something to shout about and get behind .



12 May 2018 10:56:04
Living here in Cheshire have heard all about Winner from Stoke fans. They allege he is the worst signing Stoke have ever made! We should stay well clear.

Dabber Iron

1.) 12 May 2018 11:42:06
That’s why spurs got rid.



18 Apr 2018 19:24:21
I'm going to shout this long and loud in the hope Moyes hears this . We should go for the win on Sunday against a very tired looking and fraught Arsenal. We can either try and stutter over the line with a couple of draws or do it in one hit with a positive win at the emirates. I'd start with Carroll and Hernandes up front with Arnie behind them


Rice Ogbonna Cresswell

Zabelletta Noble Kouyate. Masuaku

Arnie Carroll


Arnie and Carroll both track back more than Lanzini for me, who is a bit of a lazy luxury imo.

1.) 18 Apr 2018 22:03:12
Dabber, wouldn’t disagree with your team or comments for the arsenal game, only thing that makes me think we have no chance is, you've Forgotten to pick a keeper😄 apart from your team I wouldn’t disagree with is, i would play Adrian in goal! Think there are some that would disagree with Noble and Kouyate, but I wouldn’t, football is all about opinions like everything in life, we have our subs to try to change things if necessary, The win would keep us up. COYI⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 18 apr 2018 23:19:41
i will argue till i'm blue in the face noble and kouyate ain't good enough i'd drop noble and play kouyate and the only reason being lack of players and his enine and i'd say to him just sit in front of defence and no kamikaze runs leaving us wide open my team is. adrian. rice ogbonna cresswell. mario edmilson kouyate masuaku. arnautovic. lanzini. chiquarito. 3-4-2-1.p. s tell kouyate to sit in front of back three no nutty runs whatsoever.

3.) 18 Apr 2018 23:21:31
Chelmsford I meant to put either they’re both S**T about the keeper! 😀There are some valid points on here about Noble and Kouyate and Ithink next season it will be doubtful if either are playing but now is not the right time to drop them. Sunday is definately winnable with key players coming back a t a key time. Carrolls injury issue frustrates me as much as anyone but we do lok a totally different outfit when he plays. Just think he and Chicarito could be big heroes against a relatively poor Arsenal defence come Sunday, get the win and plan for next season.

4.) 19 Apr 2018 09:12:39
Kram48, telling Kouyate to do something and expecting him to do it is two different things, he needs Noble next to him to keep him disciplined or at least to drop in for him. As per my previous post Lanzini is a bit of a luxury item for me at the moment, looks quality when the goings good but doesn’t work hard enough when we haven’t got the ball . Carroll and Arnie always put a shift in and track back. We shall see, I think we both agree we should go for it though .

5.) 19 Apr 2018 13:08:02
yep I'd drop NOBLE for EDMILSON as he's more of an athlete and the way arsenal move the ball we are going to need that and NOBLE hasn't got the legs or engine he's devoid of any pace I know he's far more experienced than EDMILSON and that's the only reason I'd stick with KOUYATE because of his ability to run hard for ninety mins and that's where his ability ends and I agree with you dabbed if KOUYATE can't stick to team orders he shouldn't be playing and if we had all players fit he wouldn't make my bench and I'm serious because he's awful.

6.) 19 Apr 2018 13:50:49
Kouyate wouldn't get a place on my 9 year old sons Sunday league team he is shocking!

Whoa calm down Whorya . Football is dog eat dog and it is cut throat but it doesn’t mean any of us have to agree with it. Noble has been a great servant to the club and could continue to be a great servant to the club in the future coaching through young talent, why waste the passion and love he evidently has for the club.? Whatever I can’t understand why you need to post angry responses to mine and Kaneob’s posts . we have to rspect peoples oppinions and mine is that Noble shouldn’t be thrown out with the rubbish.

I think you make a good case Kaneob. Noble deserves to stay and be given a shotdue to his immense loyalty and ethic. There are enough matches in a season for him to have an influence. The lad should stay with us until he's ready for dgs to pay for his coaching badges.

Great result although we have the ball away far too easily in the 2nd half. Seriously like Tom Cairney and Mitrovic, both would be good options for us in the Summer.

Wouldn’t Lukaku be a better and more realistic option?

{Ed002's Note - Lukaku won’t be moving to West Ham.}

I think we have to be careful not to look at it through English rose coloured spectacles. Once a player has played at Senior level, friendly or not the choice is made . look at Ryan Giggs.

In light of these potential new rulings would we be better casting out to players like Lokaku who appears way down the United pecking order and realistically does anyone think we would be in a position to compete for him .?

As always respect your posts Chelms and Nickinho but Arnie has missed some golden opportunities this season against Spurs, Brighton and particularly Arsenal where if he'd taken his chances we could have been 3:0 up at half time. He's a great talent but my point is that if Chelsea want him that badly cut us a realistic deal that includes RLC and I for one think the club should consider it .
