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

Now who's next?

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!
COYI.

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. 👎👎👎⚒⚒.

Nice to see Sullivan burning bridges with sporting.

Well you could see that happening they were just to good for us today. Quite a few of our lads under performing and they punished us. Ayew wasteful and slow. Fernandes and obiang unusually sloppy when we started to build up a little bit of steam.

Really missed lanzini and the pace of Antonio. Let's hope that Snodgrass missing is a sign that's he's gone surely he's beginning to get the message and we can now concentrate on getting carvalho over the line and hopefully add some depth with pace and creativity.

Anyone watch bolton leeds yesterday? Thought Cullen grew into the game as it went on and Burke looked better than the fella he replaced.

Iron.Al

1.) 09 Aug 2017 22:16:43
Wheater is the player he replaced he is better than Collins and fonte in my opinion and should not have been loaned out. COYI.

I'm abit unsure but looking at our next 7 games there is plenty winnable games especially if we have a fully fit squad. I'm pretty confident slav can get us back on the right track I think it's make or break over those games. We can never really know untill then if it was best to make the change during the international. You can also see why slav wanted carvalho shame our owners didn't fork out the extra to get him obiang and carvalho would have been solid. And looking at our first 7 games I don't think it's all been bad considering injurys suspensions. manu have hammered everyone. Robbed at saints, shite against Newcastle and pretty unlucky against spurs. Point away to west Brom and rest wins.

Still think we are yet to see our strongest team. With lanzini arnautovic obiang and Antonio all playing at the same time would be nice Hopefully after the international break. We should look like a different team and if slav can't get it right then that's when I think he will be given the boot. Would much rather see Holland or haksanovic instead of ayew he looks slow and abit clueless.

Looking at our next run of 5-6 games I'm confident we will pick up plenty of points regardless who plays up top, what's our strongest 11 at the moment I'm not so sure hopefully that will be clearer as the weeks go on. At least it's not a choice between zaza and calleri up top.

He will not be playing lw/ lf when Carroll returns to the treatment table.

Get him up top with Antonio arnautovic and lanzini supporting I'm sure he will be happy. While lanzini is out it gives others a chance to stake a claim. I wouldn't mind seeing arney playing CAM with ayew given a run in the LM position which I thought was supposed to be his strongest position and rarely played there for us. Also quina Haskanovic and Holland looking likely to get some cameos in the cups I think it's looking alright.

Typical. i'm at a loss for words. If the money is there and quality players are available get them in. I know we all have different opinions but the majority of the posters on here all seem to agree that we need to strengthen in the same areas. Regardless of who the manager is we are likely going to still need those players.

Get the quality when you can build a strong team if Billic can't get them playing and someone else comes in at least he will have quality already there rather than have to completely rebuild. We all want to see some ambition and progression but under the current regime can anyone really see that anymore? We seem all over the shop no clear plan no clear direction.

Carroll and chicharito up top together would cause a lot of problems for defenders I think they both would be able to hold up the ball long enough to take abit of pressure off and give plenty time for Antonio arnautovic and lanzini to join in. Very attacking hopefully defence is gaining some confidence back.

I think the issue stems from our transfer business being all over without any clear plan or direction. We've looked vulnerable defensively when we play 4 at the back perhaps due to not bringing in a quality CB and failing to bring in Carvalho.

Getting them all in you would have to play 442 with lanzini and obiang in the middle obiang would have to be extremely disciplined and lanzini will have to drop in at times to provide an outlet. Arnautovic isn't very defensive either but realistically how long is Carroll going to be available for anyway. Also not sure on who our best cb pairing is either? Would like to see rice given a shot there perhaps in the cup after it's supposed to be his natural position he's tidy in possesion and may actually play some decent stuff out from the back without having to pass it across the back line multiple times like our current lot have been doing. Ultimately we should definitely go 442 against Bolton maybe sakho and Hernandez up top.

Really surprised we didn't go 442 when collins came off. But can't complain played it safe and got a point. Boring game thanks to west Brom.

Apparently dicks takes care of the shooting drills. Funny thing is I remember one of the first things slav said when becoming manger was along the lines having a solid defence as a platform for the rest of the team. All a bit astonishing.

Only time will tell Costa. If its new personal, formation changes or possibly both that sorts the defence out personally if we play 2 cbs or 3 I think we need someone to give us a shot of confidence and add quality at the back only problem for me is shifting fonte. Reid and ogbonna always seem to pick up some injurys to. There were some awful mistakes last season and our defence let us down a lot being 2 nil up against Watford then losing 4-2 springs to mind. I know rice is young but high hopes he can become a solid dm this season shielding the defence.
