Hi ed if u dnt post this tell the boys we are linked with marega, he has told me we have been in touch. I used 2 play with him and a close friend . He has everything to be a great player but his composure is awful to say the least and in any other than prem I believe he would be success but no at West Ham United if we stay up . And that's a big IF.

LANZINI scored for Argentina last night in a 2-0 win against Italy. COYI.

Ed would you know if there is in interest in Braithwaite from westham and the likelihood of signing or why we haven't tried to get this deal done. Thanks


{Ed002's Note - As a special treat. There has been interest from West Ham and from the player but Toulouse are not keen on doing business with West Ham after they were screwed around in the summer when Toulouse told West Ham to make an improved bid and, that subject to a number, of issues the transfer could go ahead if the club and player wanted that - and then they heard no more as WHU flip-flopped from one target to another. No, given the impending Hogan deal it is likely off the table that West Ham would do what is necessary to make this happen - a non-negotiable bid of a value that would be acceptable to Toulouse.

As I have explained over and over, this is why WHU need a Director of Football/Technical Director that can deal with these matters - someone who knows the game.}

Absolutely right and its something we have neglected for too long but dgs know better and look where that got us. We mess around far to much and always have since dgs came in. Just look at how we are going about Scott hogan saga now? And the excuse they give is that it's all pending what happens or how much we get for payet. Dgs getting reputation as a pair of jokers in my eyes with ludicrously low bids and comical last dash cheap or free players. In the summer we could have got Ben yedder or braithwaite but dgs look beyond there station and tell everyone we are after marquee £20m+ striker. Ben yedder was going for £8m and braithwaite was £5m I think but, we messed about just as we do with every transfer and ended up with zaza and calleri and we know his that worked out. Considering they are shrewd business men they don't know his to conduct themselves during a transfer window and its time we got somebody who does. Its a farce and ee go through the same every window making us a laughing stock

{Ed002's Note - We went through a lot of this in the summer Phil. I don't want to get embroiled in explaining where Marseille are but WHU moved the goalposts over discussions and trying to get things resolved. Marseille has a lady based in the UK during this window - and she is available at reasonably short notice. I have not spoken with her since this morning but she was of the opinion that resolution was needed and that it would not be difficult.}

Thanks ed

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome IT.}

3.) 24 Jan 2017 08:44:42
Ed may I ask what the reason is why westham do not or will not have a direstor of football/ technical director, is this just down to DGS wanting to be more involved instead? Thank

{Ed002's Note - I imagine it is.}

4.) 24 Jan 2017 13:27:30
shame really. thanks

A reliable source linked to the club just told me glen Johnson is a done deal but club won't confirm till end of window because something to do with wages


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:07:00
We need defensive strength . Good shout

2.) 15 Jan 2017 21:52:37
One of the Eds keeps mentioning a package that Marseille are planning to offer West Ham for Payet.

I've just had a gander at the Marseille squad, and there aren't many players there that would interest me. I'd be tempted by Lassana Diarra, but then again at the same time he is now 31 years old.

He is a decent defensive midfielder and can cover at right back, but still. I'd rather play Kouyate and Obiang, keep the two of them happy with minutes than sign Diarra for the next 18 months to 2 years. Realistically, how much longer has he got at the top of his game? Baring in mind he is currently playing in France?

Other than Diarra, Marseille' two young centre backs could be interesting. Doria is a very promising young Brazilian central defender, as is Karim Rekik. One of them could be worth taking.

There is literally no one else.

3.) 15 Jan 2017 22:52:26
/ jeremie-porsan-clement would be good option young striker who is rated very highly along with Doria and 25 mill would be great deal.

4.) 15 Jan 2017 22:58:04
Wouldnt want diarra doesn't he owe his previous club about 7 million or something silly for a contract dispute? Too much baggage for my liking

5.) 15 Jan 2017 23:19:02
Glen Johnson is finished been poor for a while byram did ok yesterday better let him develop



11 Jan 2017 19:05:56
Looks like hogan deal is complete and it's going to confirmed shortly?


{Ed002's Note - Not before WHU make an acceptable bid.}

1.) 11 Jan 2017 19:23:30
Am hearing the same about hogan. Announcement shortly? £9m up front with further £6m to follow. Now go get Snodgrass and bathshuyai and max gradel.

2.) 11 Jan 2017 20:15:11
If we sign Hogan, then I whole heartedly hope he does well. However I won't lie, I am concerned about his injury record. He hasn't completed a single season without sustaining some sort of injury.

3.) 11 Jan 2017 22:01:29
As I always say if he doesn't get injured I will eat my hat! I like his movement but injury wisebin my mind a bit of a liability but I hope he cracks on and does really well. Injuries for any player is horrible for career and moral.

4.) 12 Jan 2017 09:06:35
Good Morning All

Well according to reports it looks like we have eventually got Hogan.

As in many of my previous posts i'm unsure if paying this kind of money for a championship striker with injury history is the right way to go considering we have Fletcher and Martinez waiting a chance which I would think could do a great job up front with a run of consistent games.

Saying that I am not the Manager and obviously have no idea what goes on in training so we will have to trust SB judgement on this transfer ( Or DGS?! ) .

I hope the lad does well and can handle the pressure as he is being bought to try turn our woeful goal scoring record around, and I hope everyone can get behind him and not be to harsh if goals do not come instantly for him.

Its a gamble by WH on this, but to be positive now he looks like he will sign, make the lad welcome forget about his transfer price and hope he does well. i'm not sure if he is injured but if fit expect to see him against Palace on Saturday. Would he start upfront with Carroll?,



08 Jan 2017 18:28:48
I don't believe hogan is our man, for same price we could get Braithwaite, or tempt mandzukic.
But would love ifora, sansom and snodgrass


1.) 08 Jan 2017 20:12:21
if that's true my tickets going in the river ain't no way dgs gona fill my seat needless to say many more will follow.

2.) 08 Jan 2017 22:55:32
Agreed todd mandzukic snodgrass and iorfa would be great

3.) 09 Jan 2017 10:49:35
Is it true that Hogan is injured again? Knee problem?

Line up tomorrow
Rice ogbonna cresswell
Zab noble kouayte masuaku
Arnautovic Carroll lanzini

Defensive but a goal in that side


1.) 29 Apr 2018 08:37:52
Toddy, agree with line up, not defensive for me, we have to have a defence! for me no starting for Hernandez nor Mario. Hernandez expensive player at £140k to play in the 18 yard box, the pitch is 120 yards, Mario on a stroll around last week, go back to Portugal if you want a holiday! Was actually saying he thinks he might stay next season, that’s really thoughtful of him, I bet he is, on yer bike mate if you can’t put effort in for every game! It’s either black or white for me, no effort or end product, out! Really missing Antonio for my part, doesn’t stop running and trying👍 Thought Palace were brilliant yesterday, also good results for others apart from Swansea thankfully, showing others fighting spirit. Would give anything for 1 point today, but we are going to get ripped apart, hope the defeat is respectable and not embarrassing, sorry for the pessimism, but that’s the realism of it today, hope i’m Wrong! ⚒⚒⚒COYI.



24 Mar 2018 02:32:03
Ed u never post my post. Dnt no wats your issue maybe the missis but what I wanna tell the real hammer fans is LANZINIs goal . Wow . Thanks ED.


1.) 25 Mar 2018 07:49:49
Irontodd, don’t wish to put a negative slant on your post, but no way am I interested in Lanzini scoring great goals for Argentina when we are in deep s—-, Weat Ham pay his wages, he needs to score some for us! I would be much more positive about it if we were well out of relegation problems. That’s the difference it makes playing with confidence in a friendly game with no pressure on you and 10 other Internationals alongside you, no comparison unfortunately, can’t see him staying although he says “ he’s happy with us”but who could blame him moving on if he does?



10 Mar 2018 16:54:06
A very sad embarrassing day for our club all around.

Sad scenes on Bobby's day. These so called fans are a disgrace to our club.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 17:27:26

5.) 10 Mar 2018 17:29:46
The club will get punished for that, and we could end up playing the rest of our home games behind closed doors.

6.) 10 Mar 2018 17:37:58
Irony. We loaned out Snodgrass who WE said wasn't good enough. Villa could come up if we go down and then why would he want to come back to us lmfao.

7.) 10 Mar 2018 17:39:54
Perhaps if the mindless morons keep invading the pitch and we keep getting fined they will end up losing interest and sell up. One can only hope! 😭😢.

8.) 10 Mar 2018 18:09:33
The players are a disgrace. How can they take our money for the crap they're showing on the pitch?
And now off to Miami for a training camp!



24 Jan 2018 19:38:32
If we can joel Mario and dendonker I will be more than happy with them 2.


1.) 24 Jan 2018 21:15:04
I doubt we will get dendonker in this window mate bit out of our price range I'd say Mario and grenier would be good though.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 08:35:56
Absolutely agree with you REDROBBO2. Dendoncker would be a really nice addition if we can get him for around £20m but Mario and Grenier (when both fit) would add some better quality and depth in our midfield. Being greedy, If we had an out and out right winger I'd be even more happy.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 16:28:47
Hiya PHIL I'm praying we get some sort of deal done for DENDONKER because he is potentially the best C/ B in the world that's our high I rate him he's got everything mate. COYI.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 09:56:17
Is he not a DM Gkg66?



21 Jan 2018 00:06:24
Rashfords not regularly playing atm and with Sanchez coming inn at man u, wudnt he be worth a punt . Possibly loan to buy?


1.) 21 Jan 2018 01:55:23
If by any chance he was a valuable can you honestly see us being at the front of the queue for him?

Dendonker is better in a 3 man midfield looking after back 4.
