IF we get Gomez and Jordan then someone will need to go to balance the books. Personally I'd sell Wiltshire, if someone were willing to take him. Build a squad that is fit.


1.) 15 Jun 2019 18:58:05
Looks like Gomez prefers Valencia as he wants to remain in Spain. gutted.

2.) 15 Jun 2019 20:50:19
Champ league football is a big draw, but it's not done yet either way.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 07:22:42
Hammers fan, is that really a surprise? I wonder what the percentage difference is between British moving to Spain or vice versa, he’s not struggling for options?

4.) 16 Jun 2019 09:16:23
True, MarkWhu, but it doesn’t have to be a midfielder. If, for example, a deal is done with MU for Diop, then we buy Maripan, there will be a significant profit.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 16:59:11
sorry mate i would keep Wiltshire for this season just to see if he stays fit, if he does get back to anywhere near his best it would only make WH stronger.
Only time will tell, but let's give him a chance/
Remember Snoddy everyone wanted him to leave [includeinng me] but Pel. saw someting in him and kept faith
Pel. signed Wilshire so let's give him a chance.

Lets wait and see he's only 27 and i hope he does make it.



27 May 2019 17:23:13
We've had a bid of £18m turned down by Barcelona for Gomez, who want £25m. Just pay the £25m before Everton do 😤.


{Ed002's Note - You appreciate it is not quite as simple as that?}

1.) 27 May 2019 18:04:30
I have read we are looking to raise our offer is there any truth in this Ed? Obviously competition for him will be tough but I think it would be a great signing if we can pull it off. What worries me is if he is thought to be a main target does that mean the likes of chicharito and arnautovic going to be staying?
I’d definitely want to replace chicharito if I had the chance.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know but the player will want to understand what options are available to him - particularly those that may include Champions League football.}

2.) 27 May 2019 17:39:05
We're interested in him all the time season tickets are up for renewal. After that, we'll be back to scouring the Turkish leagues and players from relegated clubs again.

3.) 28 May 2019 07:30:18
Well said Billy😂🤣😂🤣 Not to many of us fooled by that rubbish talk! I read all this but completely dismiss it until we have done the business, ridiculous talk!

4.) 28 May 2019 11:19:50
As always, we will just have to wait and see.

Having said that, how many genuinely thought we would actually sign Anderson when the rumours first surfaced?

5.) 29 May 2019 12:52:37
Our board need to make a STAR signing. Something similar to when we brought Phil Parkes and broke the record. The players we are after are good players, but not the sort to entice other ‘names’ to join. The fans deserve it. They’ve been loyal through some pretty average times. If the board really wants to put us on the map then please do so.

6.) 29 May 2019 23:11:21
Mark why I agree with you mate. It’s been almost 10 years since Gold and Sullivan took over. Although they cleared the club debts and got us on steady ground, I can’t help but feel that they have milked millions from the TV rights, gate takings, merchandise and selling our beloved Boleyn ground. Hearing that a wealthy Dubai based Billionaire was looking at taking over Newcastle for £350m filled me with envy. I wish we had a suitor of a similar ilk who would take ownership of our club and that Gold and Sullivan would walk away. At least then we could compete with proper investment and when we wanted a player, we didn’t fanny around with low balling on offers.

7.) 01 Jun 2019 21:45:52
The answer to your question mark with this board is they talk high but aim low and before everybody jumps on the bandwagon and say we spent 100 million in last teaser window with outgoings it wasn't anywhere near that . COYI.



20 May 2019 20:19:58
At Chadwell Heath today a couple of people were talking about Edin Dzeko, might be nothing.


1.) 21 May 2019 06:51:49
Sounds about right Mark, ex ManC, 30 years plus a couple more, give him a 3 year contract at whatever he asks for🤣🤭.



08 May 2019 18:04:01
Reckon it'll be a very busy summer at the Hammers. Players like Carroll, Adrian, Reid going, along with possibilities like Cresswell or Masuaku, Chicha, Arnie, Perez.


{Ed002's Note - Obiang, Nasri, Oxford, maybe Lanzini.}

1.) 08 May 2019 22:56:20
Any idea where Lanzini might go? And who we would look to replace with?

All answers appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - No but WHU are wary of his injury history and could make a mistake over any new contract. Vazquez, OLmo or even Brahimi could replace him.}

2.) 09 May 2019 07:23:29
Why sell Masuaku? That would be a big mistake for me, not so good defensively but great going forward with pace and crosses!

3.) 09 May 2019 09:20:03
He plays left back for us though Chelms, first thing he needs to do is be able to defend properly, especially given the amount of goals we conceded this season.
He has been good the last few weeks granted, but can he do this consistently over a season?

4.) 09 May 2019 15:02:01
How about Anderson moving inside and Arthur moving forward - just a tjought.

5.) 09 May 2019 18:41:38
Saddened to hear of any suggestion about Lanzini leaving. I really hope it does not happen.

{Ed002's Note - But realistically, however good he is it only works when available - and Andy Carroll if completely fit would cause defences all sorts of grief. West Ham need to ponder any new contract carefully - that is the reality. If fit then great, else, more money down the pan.}

6.) 09 May 2019 19:48:34
Lanzini looked proper off the pace when he came back. Think Anderson has stolen his show.

7.) 12 May 2019 11:19:20
I’ve just commented about the ifs we all associate with Wilshere - perhaps the same applies to Lanzini. We know how good he has been before his horrendous injury.

His training stats should give a good indication of how close he is getting to where he was general fitness wise.

I would give him some more playing time today v Watford and concentrate on his match sharpness during the summer and pre-season.

He still has plenty to offer WH.



16 Apr 2019 20:12:36
Sky Sports saying we've been offered Dzeko.


1.) 16 Apr 2019 21:12:19
Utter madness if we do go for him. Roma want far too much for him, (£20M according to some reports) he'll want silly wages (£165k a week's been banded about fcol!? ) and at 33 what value is there in signing him?

He'd only ever be a short term fix at best and we'd have to finish something like 2nd as opposed to our usual 11-15th in the league and win a cup just to cover in prize money what we'd have spent on him - and with the best will in the world Edin Dzeko alone just ain't going to make that happen!

Surely it makes much more sense to sign a younger player who will still have value in 3,4 or 5 years time?

2.) 16 Apr 2019 23:16:30
Well said Billy, hopefully no more sticking plasters.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 06:53:21
Agree entirely with Dzeko comment, these agent / players are such greedy b———-s, all trying to get on the The Premiership gravy train👎 I would say yes for £2m and £25k a week or on yer bike, I wish MP would get these prospective pensioners off his radar, he seems to love some of the ones that played under him years ago! We all know the Premiership is a very tough competitive demanding league, it needs players with stamina and pace in all positions to compete, he as a Manager looking at WH hospital beds should see only to well what a waste of time signing has beens or those with historic injury problems!

4.) 17 Apr 2019 18:11:41
I have no problem with Dzeko, if he’s FREE and requires no more than £100k per week. He’s rarely injured, guarantees goals and his wage would be funded from Carroll leaving, therefore I think it’s a goer.

5.) 17 Apr 2019 18:35:09
Mark, the only problems are, he wants £165k, plus obviously he’s now 33 and the Premiership is tougher from when he was playing in it!

6.) 18 Apr 2019 18:39:51
Dzeko now decided he wants to stay where he is, think he wants an easy life in Italy rather than the tough spotlight of the Premiership, so just as well we didn’t sign another player that wants an easy life on huge wages!

7.) 18 Apr 2019 22:40:06
What about a straight swop Chico for Shelvey.

8.) 19 Apr 2019 10:52:23
Surely we need to aim higher than Shelvy? Ok player. but is he someone that will change out team massively? I'm not too sure.

9.) 20 Apr 2019 08:19:47
See we’ve upped our bid apparently for Medel to £7.7m, am I the only one that is thinking Husillos and MP are far to blinkered in their recruitment policy, Medel approaching 33, Chilean! That’s not cheap for me, experienced yes, but for the bloody Premiership, how many more £7/ 8m’s are we going to throw away on players that are simply not good enough for the Premiership and are short term patch up jobs that will end up on the treatment table picking up their £70k weekly!

10.) 20 Apr 2019 19:35:23
Exactly. When you spend those 7 mil plus wages on these players who will never really play . adds up.

11.) 28 Apr 2019 00:11:33
We cannot help ourselves by signing or loaning a total has been stiff and giving him his retirement wages for a year or too for 80,000 a week with **** all in return excuse my French but when will we learn our lesson ARBELOA EVRA to name a few and dave is spot on we should be aiming higher than SHELVEY and SNODGRASS needs replacing as you can't fault his work rate but he's just a squad player at best . COYI.

Man Utd interested in Diop for £45m plus a player. Gulp!




29 May 2019 14:17:08
Carroll Adrian and Nasri leaving on the 30 June frees up about £200k per week. Be interesting to see what happens with the money.




24 May 2019 07:12:29
What if we let Rice go to Man Utd but only if we got Lukaku in a swap deal? Works well for us.


{Ed002's Note - Lukaku will not be joining West Ham.}

1.) 24 May 2019 10:07:01
I agree. But as a deal it’d work really well for both clubs.

{Ed002's Note - But not the player.}

2.) 24 May 2019 12:48:18
Lukaku has spent his career scoring against us, but has struggled at MU. He wouldn’t be near the top of my list.

3.) 25 May 2019 09:59:36
I doubt he would want to lower his 200k a week wages.

4.) 25 May 2019 10:50:11
As ed has pointed out, it don't suit the player so is a non runner.

5.) 25 May 2019 23:40:09
Not being rude and I am extremely passionate about WEST HAM but LUKAKU shouldn't be mention in the same breath as us we ain't at that level and will never be with our current owners unless we get another investor on board I truly understand that put the money up in the last transfer window but with outgoings and prem payments I don't think they would be that out of pocket do you know the rough figures ED OR MIKE on this but anyway you need to be buying between 2-4 €40-60 million pound players every transfer window as you need a full bench of players that will challenge your starting eleven and good enough to come in when called upon and that takes big investment but we are a mid 9th to 12th place in the premiership every season without this IMO. COYI.



19 May 2019 09:54:27
We badly need forwards. Personally, I'd get rid of the 4 we have and buy Rondon and Giroud . Both gettable, both different. Rondo has good movement whilst Giroud holds the ball up. Either would suit our midfield.




14 May 2019 17:28:52
West Ham should go for Bale. £250k each week plus £8-10m. A world class player. He'll be worth 8-10 points so that'll pay the money through premier league places.


1.) 14 May 2019 18:21:54
no chance bale would even consider us. he will have offers from clubs way above our levels.

2.) 14 May 2019 19:03:53
True, but if we want to step up a level this is the sort of player we want.

3.) 15 May 2019 02:41:27
Nice to want players but we need to be realistic about who may want to come or we waste a lot of time for nothing.

4.) 15 May 2019 06:47:36
We wouldn’t get a sniff of Bale, why would he want to join us🤣😂 Under contract until 2022, £600k weekly, if he returned to the Premiership we might get him when he’s about 35 and been crocked for a year then give him a 3 year contract!

If true about Lanzini it’s a disgrace. He’s been injured for 9 months, an injury received on international duty. We pay his wages and then he wants to leave. He owes us a year.

Sturrridge and Wellbeck would be great signings on pay as you play, otherwise it would not be a good deal. We already have Wiltshire who will get injured in the first game he plays. We’ve just got rid of Carroll so we DO NOT want another injury prone player on £50k plus each week.

Cahill would be a good acquisition.


{Ed002's Note - I think for a year or perhaps two he could help the club stabalise - there is interest from elsewhere but, even though wages would be reasonably high that should not be a problem with outhers leaving. There would be a signing on fee but no huge transfer fee or other costs.}

We need Noble to start. When he was missing we looked rudderless in the centre.

I’d say no ref. Diop, but offer Balbuena.

The top 6 will remain the top 6. I think we’ll be battling with Everton for 7th. A nice cup run would be decent.

I forgot Snods as well. He’d be my first replacement for anyone injured in midfield.

1. Fabs

2. Fredericks
3. Diop
4. Balbuena
5. Cresswell

5. Noble
6. Rice
7. Anderson
8. Yamalenko
9. Lanzini


Think Rice n Noble hold allowing the attacking players to flourish.
