Welcome Felipe, finally on the official website! whos next?


1.) 15 Jul 2018 10:27:12
Anyone know how much is left in the budget now? Anderson £38mil + add ons, Diop £20+mil, Fabianski £7mil, Balbuena £4mil (ISH), Wilshire and Fredericks on frees + sign on bonuses and agent fees and every other fee that goes with transfers for all players. This must take us up close to the touted £75mil budget for this window.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 10:33:42
Fantastic news. Credit to DS on this one.

What a brilliant window! If it closed now we have to be happy with the signings.

. but wouldn’t Bernard be a great addition?

Just imagine a side with the talent of Wilshere, Yarmolenko, Arnautovic, Anderson and Bernard in front of a much better back four than last year.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 12:07:22
I hope MP can get all the new boys clicking quickly. Traditionally adding a lot of players to a squad can disrupt the chemistry. I think this might have been what happened to Everton last season.

We do have a long time to the start of the season though, I can't actually believe we got all these over the line so quickly and we didn't give up with Anderson like we have done with so many other potential marquee signings in the past.

What a time to be a hammer ⚒️.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 12:35:51
Diggiddy - last season’s chemistry needed disrupting!

5.) 15 Jul 2018 13:02:24
Bill I totally agree. We do effectively have a whole new team.

6.) 15 Jul 2018 13:25:11
Anderson bubuelana willsher diop fredericks yarmelenko all great and more to come seems like last years protest have done the trick were getting now getting what we was promised 3 years ago COYI.

7.) 15 Jul 2018 13:35:10
Bonzo it’s not just a question of promise this is a direct result of moving to a much bigger stadium more seats more sales more merchandising more advettisimg equals more profits having spent to equal the outgoings last two seasons we are spending the profits in advance for the forthcoming season. IRONMIKE.

Finally seen chicharito in a west ham shirt what a relief to get him over the line with no hiccups.

Now who's next?


1.) 24 Jul 2017 21:42:31
Absolutely thrilled that chicarito has signed
if I'm honest didn't think it would happen.
We are looking like a better starting 11 and
a better squad than last year!

2.) 24 Jul 2017 22:44:45
We have put in a bid of 10 mill euros to Genoa for Diego Laxalt he is a 24 year old winger who the brought of inter last summer he didn't have the best of seasons with them but he has got talent and could be a good back up for arnoutovic on the left so hopefully more signings, our squad is looking strong and I do believe we can challenge for Europe next season.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 23:23:58
I would like us to get Diego Laxalt but there is a player who I thought had a good season in a rubbish team and That's Sam clucas of hull and he would only cost about 5-6 mill could be good back up to arnoutovic and I know u will prob think it could be snodgrass all over again but I think he has great potential, jota would be a good buy aswell but I have got this feeling we will put a bid of 20 mill for wilshire and ger to the club him and his family love and maybe he can show us what talent he truly is, it's just going to be interesting who we might get next.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 23:29:07
Not much to compare against if you consider last years team but I agree. I believe four more signings to follow. I think a CB, DM, AM and a GK.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 06:20:56
This was David golds Twitter message I just hope it don't indicate that there won't be no more signings. A great window. A big thank you to David Sullivan, Slaven Bilic, Tony Henri, Andrew Pincher and the team. dg. Me personally recon there will be atleast 2-3 more signings in another striker, a left winger and cm.

6.) 25 Jul 2017 14:04:48
They are working on a one out one in basis now we have hit our wage cap and have a 25 man squad.

7.) 25 Jul 2017 16:24:33
Yes, so now I reckon they'll be some heart-break as we're likely to lose some of our heroes. Adrian is strongly fancied to leave, probably Cresswell, Kouyate, Antonio could be on the list?

8.) 25 Jul 2017 17:58:03
Cresswell, kouyate and Antonio won't be going anywhere? Where did you even come up with that? Who would replace them? We have no cover in these areas. 👎👎👎⚒⚒.

13 Jul 2018 19:40:18
are any CDM's being targeted? looks as though Arnie will be up top next season. We Seem to be going for so many attacking players. would like to see some money go to bringing a quality CDM to replace the ageing pair of noble and kouyate.




05 Jun 2018 21:11:40
wonder if this was possible.

In :-

Felipe Anderson
Pastore (if failing gomes)
adama traore

fredericks signed*
Marlon/ Izzo/ Kasim nuhu (fella mike mentioned looks an interesting prospect) I was also hoping we would look at nordi mukiele but he's off to rb leipzig.

GK-? too many to name that are better than what we had last season.

Couple extras to consider Yaya toure, wilshire both on Free's

I'd even take Ravel back too.

Hernandez (huge wage could be put to better use)
Kouyate (worst season for us got some unfair stick at times but easily upgraded)
Reid (injury prone, Zouma younger and better)
Carrol ( injury huge wage)
Hugill ( never had a chance)
Antonio ( love him but adama is an upgrade may be better to cash in on him now before his ham string gets even worse)
Evra- end of contract
mario- end of loan
hart- end of loan
Ginger Pele - end of contract

Obiang and or fernandes could be surplus to requirements depending on incomings.

with that many off the wage bill I think we would be able to get in quality players. maybe they won't quite be pastore and anderson. but there is others available. fingers crossed we can get our top targets but judging by mikes posts some are already looking out our grasp or falling out of favour eg marlon.


1.) 07 Jun 2018 10:52:46
Goodness Al, Sullivan find it hard to sign a couple players in window, this would take 4 seasons at Sullivans rate.

2.) 07 Jun 2018 19:20:15
haha very true! hopefull we've turned a corner with the pellegrini era.



08 May 2018 19:41:47
who would you prefure to go down out of swansea and Southampton? i'm thinking southampton just because of hughes being a classless turd.

and who would you take from the potential relegated or relegated clubs. I think badou ndiaye would be a good shout definitely upgrade on kouyate, he's averaged just under 4 tackles a game for stoke has much better passing stats too technically a lot better.

Kurt zouma should be high on our wanted list too anyone shed any light on if chelsea want to sell?


1.) 08 May 2018 20:03:51
Just glad it’s not us ( this year ) about to get asset stripped . What happened to players that stayed? Mercenary world but it is what it is .

2.) 09 May 2018 14:30:28
I'd love Southampton because watching that game yesterday there's a player we should go for JACK STEPHEN'S centre half who if relegated would be more gettable watching yesterday's game he was awesome and a great talent.

3.) 09 May 2018 17:33:07
If it's Swansea I'd take Alfie Mawson.



02 May 2018 21:02:32
wonder If we could tempt rafa benitez offer him a huge amount of money to rebuild our team. there's no doubt we need some fresh blood, a younger more balanced squad. but i also think there are some players who a lot of fans want rid of because the manager isn't getting the best out of those players.

There is still a lot of doom and gloom around the west ham sites. we have had some terrible luck this season important decisions going against us. I seen a lot of negative posts about the man city performance. If arnies goal stood it would have been differnt game not to mention there first 2 goals were from awful deflections. we had a really good spell before the half and really took the game to them which is a lot more than teams have done against city this season.

we were also unlucky against arsenal and stoke we were well in a game against arsenal and crumbled after 80 mins due to rices error.

we should be safe by now and really getting into gear and working on transfers. unfortantely i think we will fall even further behind and i'm not optimistic sullivan and dithering dave will be able to deliver on any of that.


1.) 03 May 2018 07:37:38
Not sure why Benitez would be interested at the moment Al, leave a steady ship for one that’s hits holes in it and half a crew, I would like him though mate, but there are lots out there that would think him the wrong man .

2.) 03 May 2018 21:37:22
no I don't think so either has a very good relationship with the fans there If mike ashley stumps up the cash newcastle have huge potential to become a force again.



28 Apr 2018 14:56:06
Would like us to move for Kurt zouma beast at the back right age too with prem experience. personally think he's better than Mawson, Dunk, Gibson.

Wonder If we will go back in for adama traore we lack raw pace and power without Antonio. now he's finding his end product he could become a great player.

Would also take Ravel morrison back on a loan to buy.


1.) 28 Apr 2018 15:27:12
latest scores not great palace in front saints winning also come on AFC AND LEICESTER.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 15:44:02
Come on everton huddersfields remaining games are MAN CITY CHELSEA AND ARSENAL so can't see them getting anything there I think a point and we will be ok anyway we will beat EVERTON last game at hone and I think we will get a point at Leicester. COYI.

3.) 28 Apr 2018 16:13:05
we are going to beat city anyway don't worry!

4.) 28 Apr 2018 16:14:12
Let’s just hope that last game isn’t a do or die one mate, big sam would enjoy sending us down.

Carrol never played with us in championship.

Yeah Reid has been a rock in the PAST. We need players that can be replied upon and reids form has been poor anyway probably because he's been in and out of the team due to injuries. wages better spent somewhere else he must be on 70k a week and I can't justify that.

Someone desperate on the cheap might have took em. we really could have done with getting them off the wage bill.

I still think we need a CDM and a striker. with most of the big spending done provided we do get anderson and balbuena. I'd take Rondon and badou ndiaye could add abit of steel to our midfield.

These 2 should have been away as soon as they could pass a medical.

DS not involed gives me confidence.

As for fernandes you have any idea why that's off?

I was basing it more on mikes comment his own fans sing against him isn't a good sign. Maybe he was over hyped perhaps he looked a lot better playing for dynamo kiev.

He could come to us and do very well. It just seems again the cheaper option and my comment was born out of fustration that we wouldn't pay extra for younger players who have arguably been performing In the top leagues and who are on the rise. Makes more sense to do that 35m for a 21year old saint-maximin imagine what he could be worth in a few years when Yarmo would be 31 and maximin still 24.

Anderson is still only 25 too. so yarmo little sell on value and no doubt will need replaced in a few years it just makes more sense to pay extra for the younger players we could end up almost doubling our money on a player like maximin If we were to sell more money to be reinvested in the future.

I'm sure there is a video of pellegrini talking about formations he said the formation doesn't matter Its the approach which is to always attack.

Personally I do think Arnautovic will be up top I think he thrives on being the main man up there and has often been critised in the past for his defensive work rate. i'd just keep him up top let him cause havoc he's got all the attributes to be a top striker.

Rondon is going cheap he's a unit and he's not slow. done a lot on scraps at west brom think he would be succesful with Arnie anderson wilshire yarmolenko creating for him. reasonably priced too if reports are to be believed.

raver you've copied arsenals stadium and stuck a toilet seat on the top.

Its inevitable that west ham will one day own the stadium rip up the track and convert it into the largest stadium in london.

70 odd thousand hammers turning up to watch pellegrini serve up beautiful football and take your spot in the champion's league. haha.

Nathan holland against his old club would be a good shout. giving a few youngsters a chance even just coming on as a sub would be good.
