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. 👎👎👎⚒⚒.

would anyone be happy to cash in on lanzini to fund a complete squad overhaul? I'd love him to stay but I don't think the board will spend the huge sum I think would be required if 6-7 players in and out? who would be on your list of players out?


1.) 13 Apr 2018 18:49:17
I've been thinking about his performances this season and he has been injured a fair bit so it's difficult to be accurate.

My worry is that he is great on his day but is a bit lightweight and gets bullied off the ball quite a bit as well I am beginning to think he would be a great player in a real quality team where he would be another player rather than the star in an ordinary team.

2.) 14 Apr 2018 13:10:20
I would because LANZINIS heart is elsewhere that's my opinion.

3.) 14 Apr 2018 16:59:50
our saving grace if I'm correct SWANSEA have to play stoke.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 01:21:18
last game of the season that kram will go right down to the wire. stoke games massive but knowing west ham we will probably do it the hard way and have to get something out of the remaining fixtures we arguably have the toughest run in.

5.) 16 Apr 2018 12:26:50
spot on iron. a1 I think 37 points will be safe I wouldn't rule out BRIGHTON downwards it's more exciting than the title race lol.



12 Apr 2018 20:27:11
we should do no business with spurs, ever!




11 Mar 2018 11:06:24
think there is quite a few numptys who would happily see us relegated in spite of gold and sulli. we crumbled once again yesterday. the contingent of fans that acted that way 1 nil down 66 mins in certainly didn't help . win lose or draw there was a game of football to be played.

most would probably agree the owners talk a lot of crap and there needs to be a massive change there. what happened yesterday was a embarrasing low point in west hams history we know why they did it, its been brewing for a while but time and a place.

I don't want us to get relegated to save us from anymore embarrassment and having to have a firesale and sell players on the cheap. but going down may not be the worse thing to happen to us.

either way premiership or championship I want us to go back to basics and concentrate purely on the football we don't need lots of foreign imports and marquee signings. just players that are willing to fight for west ham who can play and leave everything on that pitch. we need a new philosophy installed playing good football. I'd concede a few positions in the league knowing that we tried to play exciting football. money has ruined a lot of this we are trying to build rome in a day. when we do not have the financial might to compete. yes their is money there but simply not the same level as those in and around the top 4. I do think there is enough to build a good solid team mix in some of the talented youth players coming through and I see no reason why we can't compete while playing football that's easy on the eye.

easier said than done we would need the right manager a director of football and the fans united.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 20:24:38
And a flipping goalie that can make saved.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 12:07:09
As we saw against Burnley, we had chances but they have invested in decent keepers that keep them in the game. look at every good Premier league team? They all have decent keepers. What do we have?

3.) 12 Mar 2018 13:02:59
Adrian shouldn't have been dropped poor man management by Moyes and not the first time I've seen this either.

hart has lost it he was given a golden opportunity to prove himself and get into the England squad and he really dropped the ball litteraly.

what a waste of money huge wages and absolute crap in my opinion. don't know why we signed him.

gk isn't even where we have the biggest problem it's merely 1 thing on a long list of problems that only seems to be getting bigger the past 2-3 seasons. worst thing is some of these problems have been so clear the fact they weren't rectified is fustrating. aging imbalanced squad that looks like it's had little to no thought during it's creation.

let's get back to basics the board have sold us a dream and can't deliver let's be realistic and concentrate purely on the football. I'd rather west ham be known for playing good football first and foremost building slowly we have great potential.

one of the few good things about this season is Declan rice.

4.) 12 Mar 2018 14:10:50
If HART is our number one for the world cup then I'm afraid the world's gone mad what a judge GUARDIOLA is getting shot of him and he was slaughtered for shows why foreign coaches are the best in the BUISNESS because SOUTHGATE will stick with him for that I'm sure .

5.) 12 Mar 2018 15:19:08
hart shoudlnt be going to the world cup full stop. just remembered his poor touch when the ball went out for a corner imagine if he done that on the goal line refs watch would have buzzed. embarrasing it must have been obvious to gaurdiola how bad hart is espicially with his distribution.

6.) 12 Mar 2018 19:12:45
I have been posting all season about how poor Hart is. He is static doesn't save shots - Saturday apart from 2 catches from high crosses he didn't make a save except the one he presented back to Burnley for their 3rd goal and as far as England goes you don't have to look much further than Pope Burnleys reserve keeper

I agree that Declan Rice is the one bright spark of this season I looked back at the 3 man defence when we beat Spurs at Wembley - Kouyate Rice and if I remember rightly Reid with Adrian in goal seemed pretty solid that night.

anyone watch Newcastle v Man United? Shelvey was quality shame we couldn't get him in January.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 08:24:14
Iron. Al, if the papers are to be believed, maybe it was because of everybody’s favourite persons remark👎 at an away game, when the question called out to him was “ why don’t we sign Shelvey” apparently the reply was in his usual diplomatic way “because he’s f——-g useless” whether that was his honest opinion or not is anybody’s guess? So what chance did David Moyes have even if he fancied him which we don’t know? I personally think he’s a great player with vision and when I saw us linked with him I thought what a great acquisition to our team, but my opinions only TV based! Couldn’t see Rafa letting him go in January anyway, to good a player!

2.) 12 Feb 2018 08:44:53
PS, my concerns now would be, can we hold on to “Arnie” in the Summer, he must be catching the attention of all the big guns at home and abroad in his current form. He looks world class in my opinion😄👍 Having a big stadium does not make you a big club, maybe the potential, but we are hardly as West Ham a big attraction to already established stars, apart from the has been bounty hunters! We need to start winning something to start building a “big club”reputation and being able to keep our quality players! Also hope Moyes hasn’t been sufficiently demoralised in the transfer window to want to walk in the Summer? Not everybody’s choice initially including me, but for who was available at the time, he’s doing a great job for me under very tight opinated constraints with difficult hierarchy!

3.) 12 Feb 2018 14:04:07
with Shelvey on his day looks great all action pings the ball about and gets stuck in but obvious he's got temperament issues but I heard west ham are his boy hood club and I think he would have played his best football with us.

according to ironmike rafa would have been happy to let him go providing a replacement was brought in unfortunately Newcastle went through abit of a takeover saga which wasn't put to bed untill towards the end of the window. I think the deal was dead before Sullivan's stupid comments were made.

as for your arnie concerns I agree he's looking world class he's always had great potential but been inconsistent in the past I think moyes is getting the best out of him and hopefully he can become a consistent performer he certainly looks up for it and is showing great passion for the club. I have the same concerns for lanzini too we must keep both if we really want to progress which will not be easy. it all depends on the summer recruitment like you say hardly an attraction to established stars, what we can do however is sign young quality players that are playing regularly that can grow with the club. for example a few of the players we were linked with like dendoncker, Morrison they both look quality even Shelvey is still only 25. we have an aging squad but if the right players are available age shouldn't be problem but we definately need an injection of youth that can play now and develop with us.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 14:06:09
not Morrison I meant Maddison of Norwich.



05 Feb 2018 21:48:34
sulli either doesn't have the means the know how or the balls to take us where we could go. promised a clear plan top 4 looking over their shoulders hahaha. overall it's been a mess. just when things look bright it's either him skimping on transfers or opening his mouth which is filled with crap lies and certainly no class.

delusional little fat man with a Russian.

did watford not buy chalobah or is there a buy back clause?

considering walker and mendy went for almost 50m surely we can hold them to ransom. I like Zouma and he's still young, as for drinkwater I think we can do better like Gomes you mentioned in your previous posts but he wouldn't be a terrible signing.

Just means we have to find another LB to take over from Cresswell. Based on previous windows i'm unsure sulli can oversee the squad over haul we need.

lanzini is class let's not forget this! he and the imbalanced squad have been hampered with injurys.

The Swansea game was an awful team performance worst I've seen for some while which could have been down to a number of reasons, let's hope they put it right tomorrow with a massive win against Burnley.

we all know we need a massive change in the summer with better strategy bringing in the right players. will we see this under current regime I won't hold my breath.

I do believe it's talk to appease the fans we can only wait and see I just want to see performances on the pitch and points on the bored we don't need no march yet.

the plan also states the manager has to see the players live and they must have been scouted 5-6times. they better get started moyes will be very busy and should be going to games right away like we seen in January. this is all good but when we decide we want a player we have to be willing to get the deal done yes of course you haggle. but please no derisory offers and dragging transfers out a lot longer than they need to be maybe you pay more than you wanted to but it's better than losing out, panic buying having a thin squad struggling in the league then having to invest in January when prices are inflated anyway. you may aswell have just coughed up in the summer.

let's hope Michael tabor can get on board aswell for extra financial backing.

we do have a good first 11 but we must look to improve to help retain our best players. also want us to see us sign young quality players. really build a strong team for now and the future.

depends what you believe Billy, mike said 25k add ons. papers and exwestham said 75k. I know who I would rather believe mikes info is usually spot on. if he is on soo much sulli baffles me really dropped the ball this transfer window oh and the one before that and emm the one before that too.

both probably still command high wages. where as evra is 36 and kung fu kicked a fan.

hopefully they would both be willing to take a wage drop. maybe some kind of short deal with the option to extend.

nasri was very good at Sevilla. we know what song is capable off arguably lost his legs he was good for us but went off the boil under slav.

toon just beat arsenal, west brom beat man Utd, man city have won the league, Leicester nothing to play for arguably same for everton although I'm sure big sam would love to see us go down. we haven't made it easy on ourselves but having 3 goals disallowed today is very unlucky also harts keeping for their goal was poor.

I think we can do it as some of the teams near the bottom have to play each other, still making me nervous though just like when kouyate is on the ball and is the deepest midfielder.

Phil, i'm sure most transfers are instalments, not saying they underbid and don't seem to turn transfers into a farce as so it would seem. sure we would all like to see a better strategy in the market perhaps we will with a director of football.

Payet and lanzini were slavs choices he tried to bring lanzini to besitskas or perhaps it was there scouts suppose you never know.

Masuaku has turned out into a good buy and is a good age.

fernandes is a great prospect and still young, so it can't be that terrible the problem leads back to the need for a director of football so we sign the right players who will work in our team and can best out of them as players.

Moyes is right in believing we need a massive overhaul gold and sulli will have to dig deep hopefully the recent protests is a wake up call.

arguably need 2 new CB's a RB.

Quality CDM-CM possibly even 2.

striker and a winger.

alot of work is needed on a positive side looks like the academy has got some great potential amongst the ranks. wouldn't be suprised to see browne or holland get a run out towards the end of season providing we are safe by then.
