I hear nasri didn't travel, is his calf Injury now worse than thought?


1.) 15 Feb 2019 13:54:29
Oh no I hope not😩🤭.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 14:08:24
We just seem to always be top of the injury table. 😟.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 15:38:01
Seems to have been that way for years now.



15 Jun 2018 20:57:24
So then folks, Mario and fonte where not good enough for West Ham? Crazy crazy talk ! They are both playing in the World Cup for gods sake! I do wonder sometimes!


1.) 15 Jun 2018 23:12:15
Jason, agreed on the face of it, seems strange, but players are judged by week in week out performances with their clubs that pay their wages! There have been plenty of players that have been selected to play for their country that are not currently first team choices at their clubs which often seems strange to me, but it happens?
We do seem however to have a record of seemingly not getting the best out of players when they play for us, how many flourish elsewhere after leaving, so as you say it does make you wonder? But I’m sure fans of other clubs can say the same? Bloody frustrating mate though☹️☹️.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 01:21:30
Players from the Saudi Arabian league are playing in the World Cup. don't make them good enough for West Ham. Fonte got totally ruined by Costa tonight. a sight we saw many times in the Claret and Blue.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 04:00:05
Sure Is Chelmsford.

4.) 16 Jun 2018 08:35:30
Paul, good point you make, not only not good enough for us, but maybe not even good enough if you drop down a league or two😂 I am unfortunately a bit of a conspiracy theorist! Russia’s first game against a country that they thrash 5-0, a record score for the host country to win by in the first game, Putin all smiles fist bumping with the Saudi bloke, what an effing farce😂😂 Putin will walk around chest pumped out with cheating pride, the country has cheated for decades to impress the world, they should be banned from all sporting events, it is not random cheating, it has been proven it is state sponsored, I think the FA should have had the balls to boycott the World Cup, then some others may have had the courage to do the same! Some say politics shouldn’t affect sport, why not? Our Supporters are injecting money into a country that has damaged the economy of Salisbury with businesses suffering “ and health of innocent people, “do unto others as they do unto you” apologies for political rant 😂😂⚒⚒⚒.

5.) 16 Jun 2018 08:40:58
I actually thought Joao Mario looked poor when he came on personally.

6.) 16 Jun 2018 10:04:13
Portugal are a pony team without Ronaldo! They have a few diamonds in the rough coming through at a younger level but their first team struggles without Ronnie, would have probably lost 3-0 to Spain last night. Then we would be saying that's why they weren't good enough for WH 😂.

7.) 16 Jun 2018 10:01:38
Chelmsford your wrong mate. I am long time reader had to join just to say let's keep political stuff off here. There is zero proof Russia had anything to do with salsbury, don't believe everything you read pal.

8.) 16 Jun 2018 10:07:13
I wouldn’t take any of the Iran team but they are at the World Cup and they won?

Fonte is not good enough for us.

9.) 16 Jun 2018 11:01:10
Robbie, I do not wish to be disrespectful to you, but no I am not wrong or right, but neither are you right or wrong it’s an opinion we are all entitled to.

10.) 16 Jun 2018 12:22:59
Agreed Chelmsford, if it’s West Ham, gerdening, cars, politics whatever, it’s your opinion, come on lads. Russia have a lot to answer for in all walks of life and that’s the truth, wait and see how opinion change if them ultras get a hold of any poor English fans just going about their business not the ones looking for a scrap. If there is no trouble I will be very surprised, even a politician who fully backs out in cane out and said last week that they should just organise a fight between us and them in a stadium I come on wtf. Anyway back to footy, any news IRONMIKE.

11.) 16 Jun 2018 12:25:43
Font was only playing because of slight injury apparently. COYI.

12.) 17 Jun 2018 08:24:54
Fonte was a bad buy. And that my friend is the truth.

13.) 18 Jun 2018 09:18:21
Chelmsford, of course we are all entitled to our opinion but as soon as you bring world issues into the game than really we no longer have a sport. Russia was accused of state sponsored doping and they got caught and are banned in the sport they got caught for.

Concerning polictical issues in my humble opinion we would not have a world cup, do you think out own secret service have not committed crimes abroad and than let talk about human rights in certain countries, amongst other things, where does the line stop.? . Politics has nothing to do with sport and should never rear its ugly head.

Football is a outlet for many under privileged people around the world who either do not have a say or care how there respective country is run, why punish these individuals for something that they have nothing to do with. Let the idiots ruin the world but we must never let it cross the line into sport more to the point football!

14.) 18 Jun 2018 22:45:07
It is about opinion CHELMSFORD I totally agree but when people do there's a few I forgot more than they know about GOOD FOOTBALLERS mate not aimed at you but the comedians on this site who THINK they know everything and talk complete garbage and I expected nothing less from them and there's a few who want to be careful what they want at WEST HAM because they will be the first to slag off MP who's made the wrong transfers if I'm wrong I will totally hold my hands up and say I was wrong but MADDISON will not shine in the premier league that I a convinced of I know of a couple of people from LOWESTOFT Awho go to Home games at NORWICH ones my brother in law who is quite clued up on footy and why he said he's decent he said he ain't a premier league player in his opinion and he ain't saying that because he's a Norwich fan just being honest and that's not nonsense and it's about opinions like you said and mine is he won't shine and for TWENT MILLION REASONS I think we've dodged a bullet and for that money i'd rather sign Anderson. COYI.



12 Feb 2018 10:01:16
If the dailrecord is correct ( if if if ) could then the reason for West Ham United still weighing up mangers be because Moyes might leave for the Scotland national job? Or could it be just some leverage on the board for them to offer him his full contract sooner than the summer? Or just more tabloid hot air?


1.) 12 Feb 2018 15:26:21
I'd lay a hefty wedge of cash that he is our manager next season based reading between the lines. And TBH he is doing ok especially when you consider where we are now compared to what we were like under SB. Am not blaming SB entirely but I think he was too soft whereas MOYES has made it clear its his way or the highway.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 21:56:43
I’d agree phil.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 10:38:20
I also agree with Phil, but the problem I see comes down to the usual for Managers is time. Looking at Big Scam and Slav they only get 2 years at a time, which is fine but will Moyes want a little more commitment than that to mould and build a side?, both sides of the coin have a good argument.

We need to stabilise in all areas, from the board, Manager, team players and also the fans. Continuity IMO is the base of success, if we can get some kind of harmony between the areas it a start.

I was very sceptical of Moyes when appointed, but give him his due, he has to an extent managed to steer us into calmer waters, I think he should be given a 3 year deal and given the wheel to the ship, the board ( as reported) need to step back and trust his judgement and basically let him get on with it. if they can't do that, I think Moyes may just leave and take the Scotland job. and once again we will be set adrift.

Also I have a niggle that if Moyes did take the job full time, we all know he can be somewhat negative in the style of play. Big Scam is not dissimilar IMO, and look at the stick he got.

We need to realise where we are as a club, the heady heights of the last season at Upton maybe fooled us ( including DGS) we were ready for the next level. basically we are NOT. we need to start building the foundations properly and think Moyes is the man to do this.

A blessing for me that Caroll has hopefully played his last game for the club and not confusing Moyes judgement to have him starting instead of Hernandez,

In Hernandez, Marko, Lanzini, Antonio, and Mario we do have a exciting players that all can score, if DM can balance the team to be strong defensively but dynamic when going forward we will get to where we want sooner rather than later.

I do worry marko may have a great rest of season and than as usual the Big Boys come in sniffing, it will be interesting to see his attitude of commitment if he gets a chance to go somewhere bigger., if they get an offer for him for £40m plus ( which I think is a possibility if he continues to play as he is) I spose would suit both parties and I can't see us keeping hold of him as his desire to go up another level.

Anyway all if and buts, let get safe and we can all evaluate and see what will happen in the summer.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 11:15:20
Hi Warrington some good points in your post and the one thing DGS have always shown is loyalty to the manager unless of course things get so bad allah Grant and Slav

Assuming we do stay up then I think a 3 year Contract for Moyes will be forthcoming of course if he wants it and that could be the start of a 3 to 5 year plan. This will also allow DGS to finally sell out hopefully to Tabor consortium.

5.) 13 Feb 2018 11:20:04
Nice post Warrington and I must admit I agree with everything you say except for Arnie. £40m in this day and age is nothing and if the big boys came sniffing I'd expect him to go for a lot more than that! He is a game changer and in the premier league they are priceless. Look at Hazard, Coutinho etc etc etc who all have that same game changing ability. Hopefully we won't sell him. On the flip side you have players like Carroll who am sorry to say I don't see where he fits in MOYES future plans. He has had it too easy for too long and getting £80k a week for lying in bed isn't funny. Time to get rid and use the money wisely elsewhere.

6.) 13 Feb 2018 12:10:53
Hi Phil, funny you should say that as I originally typed £60m plus, but having thought about it due to his changeable attitude and although his showing what he can do when happy, I just wonder if something does not go his way he could be a negative impact in the dressing room. obviously I have no knowledge but just get the feeling.

If someone big came in at £40m, although as you say very cheap in today's inflated market, it would depend on his attitude to what club it is, and if he wanted to go, I fear he would do anything to get his wish, so as I put £40m plus as a price which would suit all in the long run if he threw his toys out the pram as I spose we still get a profit. but as you rightly say he is worth a lot more in todays market.

7.) 13 Feb 2018 12:39:14
So Warrington, the question has to be (if he behaves himself and I think Moyes has his number) what's his value? He is 28 so about to come into his prime apparently so what's his worth to a big club. what's to say (dreaming a bit here) that a really big club abroad may come calling and then what!

8.) 13 Feb 2018 17:34:03
Can't say that I think Moyes or any other manager should be given full control.

Manager's chop and change too much, and want full squad overhauls each time.

We need the club to have a strategic football vision, to hire a DoF charged with delivering that vision, and then to sign players and hire managers to support that vision.

That way when a manager or player leaves it doesn't turn the whole club upside down, but the vision for football at the club continues.

All controlling managers is an old school approach which is unsustainable at any club which doesn't have an unlimited source of massive funding, on account of the impact on a club a manager leaving then has.

9.) 14 Feb 2018 08:49:15
Hi Stubbo

In vision do you mean a certain continuous style how the team plays no matter what Manager is in.

10.) 16 Feb 2018 22:35:40
Exactly that.

Players and managers then recruited to fit that broader vision.

The manager essentially is head coach.



01 Feb 2018 19:11:07
Sorry guys finger issues! Wishing Jordan well and welcome, hope you can pair up with Hernandez and be the target man that he needs t play off, welcome mate COYI’s.




01 Feb 2018 19:09:11
Tried t to the club and wish him well, really hoping he can pair up with Hernandez and be the target man that he need to.

Defence really a concern still . I'm a little worried man city will have a field day . They might score more than the usual 4 against us . hope not .


1.) 04 Aug 2019 12:30:33
I think Pellegrini's thinking is the better we hold on to the ball in an attacking sense the less chance the opponent have of scoring. Yes we could do with reinforcements and upgrades at the back over the next couple windows but I think its important for Pellegrini's style of play our attack is priority first along with the ability to hold on to the ball.

Guardiola's first game of the season record in prem is a perfect one so they are due a loss I'm optimistic we will get at them with abit of luck we can get something.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 13:04:30
Playing a “normal” defensive game v City will almost certainly result in a loss. They are too good and have too many outstanding players. If we’re going to lose, let’s go down giving it a go.

We’re at home for heavens sake and need to set some sort of attacking standard for the season.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 17:41:56
With you on that one Markro we have to be effective when we have the the ball quite often we give the ball away cheaply in dangerous situations, it’s like there’s a nice simple pass on we over play it lose the and are straight on the back foot we need to try to unsettle them and close them down quickly. i always find if we start we’ll give fans something sing about.



23 Jul 2019 18:56:58
Couple of thoughts, we still need a dm cover for rice ' left side of defence still a problem and what about another cf? Or is it a plan of attacking midfield players scoring lots to supplement the cf options we have? I must admit that Hernandez' feeding off an excellent striker.




15 Apr 2019 14:48:24
Agree mate, poor planning as I'm sure quite a few of us would like to have gone also.

Anyone off to city wed? Me and the mrs looking for parking tips.


1.) 25 Feb 2019 15:18:19
Jason, yes go by train or coach😂sorry Jason couldn’t resist that, you’re a brave man driving all that way and back, can’t see us getting much but you and your wife are to be admired as true die hard fans and are a credit to the club, it must cost you bags of money travelling away! My wife thinks the men in black running around are going to a funeral after the game, so it must be great to have a Mrs so enthusiastic to discuss WH with👍👍⚒⚒.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 23:32:02
Hi Jason,

Preferably in front of the Westham goal if you could mate :)

Sorry mate I usually make a weekend of it, the link below may help


3.) 26 Feb 2019 11:39:00
Jason you can't even get back to High Wycombe from Birmingham with an Evening Kick off let alone Manchester if you have a look on Google maps their is an official City car park north of the Stadium whether you're allowed in it or not is a different matter.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 12:01:16
Thanks folks:) yes I will try to park my old merc bus in front of super fab . Agreed very lucky the wife enjoys it and always comes with me, as a fellow high wycombe hammer I agree it's a pain but even a home game is a mighty trip lol, thanks for help everyone I will rock up and see what happens, will pass on anything useful for the future coyis.

5.) 26 Feb 2019 15:13:11
Hi Jason just asked my sister who is a City season ticket holder and she recommends either the Church on Every ST which is pay on the night or there is a large warehouse on the road up to the stadium which does the same. Best of luck with it buddy.

6.) 26 Feb 2019 15:13:35
Jason there's a bit on the West ham website the parking I mentioned is Postcode M11 3FF and the entrance is on Alan Turin Way cost £10 hope you and the good lady enjoy your day.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 18:30:01
Thanks dabber and mercerl I will give them a look 👍👍👍.

8.) 28 Feb 2019 11:28:27
Just for info folks, we parked at the multi story at piccadilly train station and it was about a 1/ 2 hr walk, very easy tbh .

9.) 28 Feb 2019 15:41:13
Well done Jason, you certainly deserved to find a decent parking place with all the effort involved, braver than me🤣😂pity your night was spoiled by that disgraceful penalty award, cannot get my head around that!

10.) 28 Feb 2019 20:03:19
We were in the top tier in the away end and it looked soft from that distance! Good defensive effort and the whu fans were great as always, one negative ( sorry to say ) Carrol, oh dear : ( but me and the mrs still enjoyed our night out :)

If if if a player comes along either cf or CB without stupid wage demands aking with sky high signing on fees ( I am alluding to free agents ) then we may still get a player or two if not then it might be pull up the drawbridge and we go with what he have . I've a feeling that the pot for this window is about spent.

Some good points Costa, payet until the strike fiasco was possibly if not the best then certainly one of the best players I have seen in a whu shirt . Lanzini is quality but can get bullied off the ball . As for messi? Yes he plays with world class stars but even he doesn't always produce, let's see what a fit lanzini can do :)

If haller is to sign then for my best guess look for a free agent to come in as the number 2 striker, don't Wright off Mario for that slot, you just never know.

To many links and speculation as normal . I will wait and believe it when I see one or more of them in the shirt or signing on the dotted line.

Now you all no that I don't get very carried away at transfer carnival time, but allowing myself a rare moment of optimism, if this gos through could this be the ratest of all things, a 20 goal a season wesf ham striker But like a lot of us I do t know enough about the player .
