Any truth in the joao Mario rumours that have popped up online? Could be a shrewd move.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 10:13:29
Jao marino has turned us down he won't be coming seems like we are after players we have no chance in getting AGAIN! same old same old.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 13:55:36
Don't think BONZO that deal regarding MARIO is dead in the water just yet mate he's a very good player as well. COYI.

This is massively hyperthetical post but one I'm making out of fear of an online rumour which I'm sure is completely false. The rumour stated Steve mclaren being one of the favourites to take over if Bilic was to ever get the boot. If that man ever got the job of running our football club I think I would just give up. The blokes a complete failure and I don't want him anywhere near my club.
Like a say hyperthetical but I feel I needed to get that out there 😂.


1.) 22 Aug 2017 17:49:27
Totally agree with you let's just hope it's a quiet news day.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 18:12:45
Appointing Steve McLaren would be stupid beyond words . I assume the value of the club would go south and certainly money would have to be put in if the club were relegated and obviously players would leave. The two Davids have to be VERY careful and I'm afraid SM is not the answer.



24 Jun 2017 11:35:51
Any truth in the patricio rumours? I think he'd be a great option over Hart. Experienced, coming to his prime at 30 and has great pedigree. Also the reported price and lower wages would make this a no brained for me.


1.) 24 Jun 2017 14:59:18
We need to sign:


However, this will take time as all the above will only be released once replacements are found. I for one will judge the board and the end of the transfer window as anything can happen yet. I do agree that if they fail this time then I think it's curtains and time for them to sell up. It's maybe not their lack of ambition but with the funds they have we are unable to compete with the teams around us and move forward. With this stadium we should be playing champions league football in the next 5-7 years and the way we are going about things currently it is more likely to be championship football.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 15:17:14
We won't sign Onyekuru now that Arsenal have agreed a fee. The club isn't far sighted enough to realise that £10M for Smalling is a bargain, so we won't get him. Wilshire would just join Carroll and Sakho on the treatment table for 7/ 8ths of the season - so yeah. nailed on we'll sign him.

Hart. Meh, rather Patrico if there's any chance at all. Iheancho? Nah. Now that it's being reported Sakho's "fit" he'll be lauded as a "new signing" again.

So that leaves Giroud. Sorry no chance, Sully just won't spring for an established PL striker when there's plenty of dodgy lower league nobodies he can loan, both from home and abroad. Besides, Giroud's just rocked up at Lyon airport which probably speaks volumes.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 19:38:48
rui p over hart
will hughes over wilshire (8mill to watford? bargain)
smalling or ake over all the othe cbs mentioned
iheanacio over giroud
onyekru at that price is worth a punt
couple of others worth looking at-tousart and ramselaar.



16 Jan 2016 12:23:49
Rumours of a bid going in for Mario ballotelli in a local newspaper for 10m. Haha surely this is a joke. Where do these stories come from.


1.) 16 Jan 2016 13:21:46
maybe we could swap him for carroll lol.

2.) 17 Jan 2016 19:59:38
It came from the best selling tabloid in the UK The Brentwood Gazette, says it all really.



29 Aug 2015 10:26:29
Redrobbo and Phil1016 have to be two of the most negative people in the world. We have spent nigh on 30m. That's more than most prem teams so how dgs can be accused of not throwing funds to the club is ridiculous. Chill out and stop whining like babies people. This is West ham. We always do things thw hard way, but I'm sure things will turn around. Bilic will not get his team built in one window. It will take time. Look at how long it's taken lvg to get things his way at United with a much larger budget. At least give it till January before we get carried away


1.) 29 Aug 2015 10:48:41
Out net spend is 20 million not 30 million the club made a 10 million profit last year and will make more this year due to better tv deal

Having said that if you actually read my post I wasn't saying anything about how much was spent but how it was spent

And Yeh sometimes I'm negative tijlve but that doesn't stop me and hasn't stopped me from supporting west ham for 35 years so as I've said before I do t need you to tell me when I can and when I can't voice my opinion thanks

2.) 29 Aug 2015 11:27:30
Sorry badly worded that forget any profit from last year this summer alone we have a net spend of 20 million not 30 million

3.) 29 Aug 2015 11:27:56
With you mate. I change from positivity to negativity hourly at the moment.yesterday I was welcoming Matri!
I'd be really happy with squad for now if we get Moses and Ad'or.

4.) 29 Aug 2015 11:54:03
Yeah 20 million spent! Downing maiga sold! So how much our spend thus far? Not the 25 million at least as was promised. And remember not long back dgs saying if nesaceray they would add there own money if a 20 million striker became available .!? You got to remember us fans ave good memories dgs .

5.) 29 Aug 2015 12:23:42
One other thing I will add is this if it seems like I'm moaning it's because this is a transfer website so on here people dicuss what we need or what we need to get rid of there are plus points of course there are but at the moment we have mainly been discussing transfers or lack of on here so have given my opinion on that

6.) 29 Aug 2015 13:10:19
Just like redrobbo I am 54 and have followed and supported my beloved hammers since I was 7. When I got my first job at the age of 17 I followed them all over the country and even when I was in the army posted overseas I still managed to get time to cone home and watch them. I therefore think I am time served and as its a bloody rumour site have every right to say what I believe. If you don't like don't read

7.) 29 Aug 2015 13:30:01
This is the point, it's rumours, but these rumours are being treated as Gospel truth. Bids were putting in etc. No one really knows what and who we've bid for so there's no point getting wound up by.
We defo need a couple in but we're not the only team going for all the players we are after. It's competition to sign whoever we go for and sometimes it won't work out. In the past West ham been quick to throw big transfers and wages at a load of guff like dyer, Carroll, ljunberg etc. So understandable to take a more measured approach

8.) 29 Aug 2015 14:27:31
Measured I can appreciate, however, our owners NEVER pay the full asking fee and this is the reason that the majority of the time we lose out. I'm all for haggling and negotiating, BUT, surely before we make a bid we should be asking what the sale price is and will the club move on the asking price. Instead, we ask for valuation and time after time approach with unrealistic offers. Yilmaz was available at A massive £6.6m SO WE BID £3.5m, then we bid £4.5m and then £5.5m!! Are you having a laugh! When we went to Forest for Antonio for a further example, surely we must have asked first if he was available and what they wanted (you can't tell me we just dived in with the offer of JARVIS AND £4.5m). Our owners KNEW EXACTLY what Forest were after (which am sure we now know) so if he was a long admired high priority target why didn;t we ask what else they would take and then make a counter offer. Its all rubbish.and we do it every window to save a few quid. How many other teams mess about like this? Southampton certainly don't and look at their squad compared to us (and we came up at the same time)

9.) 29 Aug 2015 14:48:06
Southampton have raked in massive money which is why they have been able to pay fees, but they haven't spent that much. There net spend must be way lower than ours so not really a fair comparison.
Again we don't really know what and who we have bid for. My guess is some of these players we don't really believe will improve the first so don't want to spend the massive amounts clubs are quoting us. 6.6m for yilmaz is not a huge amount but take into account his age and untested outside of Turkey it's a risk. I wouldn't want there job to be honest. Everyone has there different ideas so can't please everyone but everythings a gamble on a restricted budget

10.) 29 Aug 2015 17:42:29
First four games we'd have taken six points if offered against who we played so let's get behind the boys but please not adebayor COYI

So brady is spouting off a out how much money has been spent on the squad under Bilic in the paper, more than most of the league, they always forget to mention the net spend is not quite as impressive.
I wish our owners and board would just keep there gobs shut in public. I'm sick to death of hearing that they've done a great job backing the manager and pushing the blame elsewhere. They talk to us fans like we're stupid and I've had enough of it.


1.) 11 Nov 2017 22:35:48
Spot on 316 net spend under 10 mill they are trying to sell the club for massive profit if rumours are true the twoD's and BRADY should be up I court on fraud charges because I know quite a few die hard fans the would like 10 minutes alone with them enough said. COYI.



07 Nov 2017 11:29:36
I just don't understand all these short term contracts with players and managers. It just doesn't work. It shows a lack of faith in them and cranks up the pressure even more. The players must sit there thinkin who we going to get next. No stability at the club at the moment and there won't ever be with the d**ldo brothers in charge.




14 Oct 2017 15:08:45
Positive Lookin lineup today. Good to a see a fully fit squad for a change. Fingers crossed for a positive result to go with it.




21 Apr 2016 08:08:37
Does anyone else get the feeling hodgson just don't like West ham. First he totally rules out calling up noble on motd because he can't stop talking bout Danny drinkwater, then says Carroll has no chance (now I'm not saying either should be called up but rule them out is harsh) .
And now he's defending vardys blatant dive against West ham sayin it was injust.


1.) 21 Apr 2016 09:09:30
Completely agree. I really don't like Hodgson. I think as a manager, he has done a fairly good job with England, but I really dislike his whole demeanor. I think he is massively outspoken and has become so self righteous. His political responses in interviews are just so annoying. On MOTD he was asked about Noble and gave some political waffle about there being many talented midfielders to choose from. You're not a politician! Stop acting like one and just concentrate on your job (which I have to say is not a demanding one)

Why he thinks he has the right to comment on Vardy's dive is beyond me. It's a clear dive, and even if it wasn't a dive why does Hodgson think he needs to say anything.

2.) 21 Apr 2016 09:48:54
And he has also now defended what vardy said afterwards which may get Vardy in more trouble.

3.) 21 Apr 2016 12:22:45
Hodgson is a mediocre manager at best everyone saw how terrible England were at the world cup how the same core group of players will do better is beyond me the only reason he is England manager is because he is a yes man, Cresswell should have been capped last year I don't think he hates west ham just don't think he is able to look or think outside the current squad unless it's at players who re at so called big clubs Leicester are an exception because they are top of league and because of media pressure.



19 Mar 2016 17:47:34
Robbed again by the sounds of it. Shame but would've taken a point at the beginning all day. 3 of our next 4 at home so good chance to pick up more points. A very proud hammer! Coyi.


1.) 20 Mar 2016 14:47:41
Robbed by poor ref.

Thanks for the updates Mike, we're all on the edge of our seat like every window, just hope this time we get something over the line and not end up disappointed.

I totally agree. He seems like he knows what he wants and how he wants us to play. Over time we will gradually get an identity which I think we've lacked for some time now.

😂 unbelievable. Does he actually believe he's in a position of strength to demand one, especially whilst he's injured AGAIN.

I would suggest it would take a lot more than 20m for antonio. If Bolasie was 30m before the latest price inflations then I reckon it's got to be 40m before we think of selling.

It's not really confusing. He's obviously just not good enough right now. We need someone a lot better than what we got, a centre half playing for a team languishing near bottom of the championship isn't going to be the answer.

Well said hammer dave. I totally 100% understand the frustration with the owners. They have ruined this club in recent years, but the way things went today was totally wrong. The moment the "fans" invaded the pitch and approached the owners it undermined the team and they never stood a chance. I've never seen anything like what I saw and I was so sad and angry to see what I saw today. Those supposed west ham fans who ran on the pitch made me and I'm sure many others feel ashamed. Never in my life as a fan for 25 years of the ups and downs have I felt so sad and disgraced by what I have seen today. These people have gone about this all the wrong way and have made a mockery of our club. What a disgrace today was and I don't know how we come back from this in the short term.

Bellamy said on sky the other night that he just didn't look after himself properly when he was with him at Liverpool which is why he believes he never improved as much as he could and caused his issues with fitness and injuries.

Is there some real truth in the Chelsea rumours then Ed?


{Ed0333's Note - I don’t have a clue mate. I wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole. He’s an expensive injury prone liability.
