A fresh approach is required they say.

Again, I'm yet to see a name mentioned that is even close to the realms of reality.

Pretty clear on Saturday who won us the points. The manager. His changes even though unpopular were the difference.

Credit where it's due. I saw someone mention Ancelotti. Get real.

Lmao mikesiron. Step out of that persons shadow lol and in football anything can happen. You never know do you? If you can predict the future can you tell me tonight's lottery numbers.

Evening All,

I see we have missed out on Andre Gray, real shame. Pace, clinical and value for money and English. I think we are really short up front.

For me Toni Martinez has to now be given a long overdue chance to be involved on a regular basis.

With us apparently preparing to bid for carvallho I think nobles days are numbered thank god because he won't be in front of obiang or kouyate in my opinion.


2.) 09 Aug 2017 23:38:30
What chance have we got of getting him ( Carvallho) he has a buy out clause of 39.5 million and we are going in at 25! If this is true their just going to laugh at us. shocking. I am not saying go pay the money ( don't know enough about the player) but if you want him pay the money, 15 million shy is just 2 bob but unfortunately seems to be par for the course!


3.) 10 Aug 2017 09:57:54
Absolutely delighted we did not get Grey, his views are not welcome at any community club like ours.


4.) 10 Aug 2017 13:39:33
Which views Ludodog? I'm not aware of any views he has. Do say.

Afternoon fellow Irons.

Whilst I read and partially accept many of your concerns regarding our transfer activity, it is worth noting we lost more points from winning positions than I believe any other club. We have signed Premier league winners and experienced heads which I believe should help us avoid so many dropped points this season.

I hope it also puts a stop to this consistent hammering by the big teams. Which has become alarmingly commonplace.

If we play a back 4 it will be business as usual! . if Bilic doesn't revert to a 3 with 2 wing backs similar to last year when we were in all sorts of trouble then it could be painful season ahead!

Young Edimilson Fernandes was the star of the show yesterday. Broke up the play for the first 2 goals and was calm in possesion. I continue to be impressed with Declan Rice too. I think we need 4 more points to be safe.

MikesIron

1.) 01 Apr 2018 13:49:09
I have wondered why he hasn’t played more often unless it was injury problems, each time I have seen him he has impressed me? Rice is now really establishing himself, let’s hope we can retain both of them for the future?


2.) 01 Apr 2018 17:49:03
was about to post about edmilson he's a baller forget he's only 21. he has had good games for us might be abit inconsistent. I think we have missed him this season and he will be an important player for us seasons to come.

As for rice he is quality reads the game so well I don't think any would disagree that the lads going to the top of the game.

also been hearing good things about other youngsters emerging and showing real promise a crop of good youngsters would really grow this club providing we hold on to them and grow with them.


3.) 02 Apr 2018 10:59:36
I agree with both. I thought edimilson was superb when he came on. Bundles of energy and worked his socks off. Rice just looks so composed for a player so young and just makes his job look effortless at times, times his tsckles well and reads the game superbly. Hell only get better.
Felt kouyate was back to his old best as well which was good to see. Southampton were poor and gives me hope that there sides worse than us this season and will help us stay up. If we keep up with that spirit and enwgery in the remaining games we will be fine.
I was so proud of the support from the fans as well, I was disgusted when I left the ground from Burnley but I think we showed the world how as fans we can galvanise at difficult moments and back the team.


4.) 02 Apr 2018 13:57:27
agreed hammer. return of masuaku made a massive difference too. I feel a lot more confident of staying up after that performance but they must not rest on there laurels. looking forward to the next crop of academy players we are long over due perhaps if we can do the business at Chelsea and stoke we might even see some others given a chance in the remaining games. we've got Alfie Lewis, pask, Johnson, holland, Browne, Cullen, quina. not to mention the players we will have returning from loan samuelsen, Burke, Oxford and Martinez. Think we are looking very healthy in the prospect department and be surprised not see some of those step up in the seasons coming.


5.) 09 Apr 2018 19:45:11
sorry Al but out of all of them HOLLAND is the best talent by a mile Burke and Cullen Oxford ain't good enough.


 

 

01 Mar 2018 19:16:19
I have to say Wilshere is the only player with a bad injury record I would consider signing. Overrated he is not, in the final third he is really dangerous.

The owners when they took over invested over £120M of their own money into the club, how many of us really sang their praises then?

David Gold played for the youth team in the 50s, January is a terrible time to do business in the main. I don't think its a bad as people on here make out.

There are so many chequebook managers these days, Moyes has improved the players already at his disposal, the sign of a proper manager. Ogbonna in my opinion since Moyes has come in is vastly improved along with many others. KEEP THE FAITH.

MikesIron

1.) 02 Feb 2018 17:32:08
And what about the interest rates there charging on that money.


2.) 02 Feb 2018 18:08:56
I’m not standing up for the board but I think I did hear it was a very low interest loan, not sure how much it is and yes there is an argument for the debt being written off but I don’t know if that is possible or allowed .


3.) 02 Feb 2018 20:33:46
It was 7% until sometime last year when I believe it went down to 3% or 4%. The 7% was a very healthy return for what was a relatively low risk investment.


4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:16:28
Anyone no anything about this march that’s meant to be going on?


5.) 03 Feb 2018 16:31:25
Trying to find out?


 

 

31 Jan 2018 00:04:17
Noble was superb tonight, I like Kouyate as I mentioned a week or so ago but unfortunately I don't think Byram is good enough.

I'm happy Antonio was dropped if he was late, if you can't follow the rules, of which I have no doubt were explained in no uncertain terms when Moyes joined, then expect to be punished. With the depleted squad, a point against a decent Palace team I left satisfied tonight.

MikesIron

1.) 31 Jan 2018 08:14:37
MikesIron, agree with everything you said, Noble rolling back the years, always liked Kouyate, has some hiccups but don’t they all, Premiership bloody tough league playing against all of the top players! Agree with Byram comment, which includes a number of the younger players! Antonio bitterly disappointed with him, turning up late, disgraceful, Moyes is a “I tolerate no rule breakers or shirkers” good on him, lazy attitude toward discipline should not be tolerated in any workplace especially professional sport. Doubt if he’ll be late to catch his Holiday flight when the seasons finished! Think we should approach Usain Bolt😄👍 he’s always fancies himself as a footballer, WOW can you imagine that, TAXI every time got the ball, really surprised no team has ever made him some kind of tentative offer? 👍👍⚒⚒.


2.) 31 Jan 2018 08:47:11
Agreed Mikes, when we went 1-0 down I was a little worried, what with all the injuries a point is OK, at this stage its all about survival and think with 13 games to go 10 more points may just see us home. Predicted points to stay up anyone?


3.) 31 Jan 2018 10:10:52
KOUYATE has been ok but I'd still out him. COYI.


 

 

25 Jan 2018 13:32:48
Anyone who rips their season ticket up in protest to how the board conducts transfer business is not a true supporter of WHU. I remember our financial peril under the Icelandic bankers, we have a good team and are heading in the right direction.

Get behind the team, West Ham United have the best fans in the league. Our away support inparticular is second to none.

MikesIron

1.) 25 Jan 2018 13:48:35
Mikesiron

You are spot on, as I said yesterday we could be in a lot worse position!
Let’s get on and support the team and let’s get some more points on the board and Home support is critical as we know our fans are some of the best in the country and makes a massive difference

Bobby.


2.) 25 Jan 2018 13:49:21
Yes we have a great fan base yes we have in my opinion the best away support, however you cannot say that people who rip up there tickets are not true fans! I think people are just sick and tired of all the empty boasts from those in charge about we are going to do this and that, ( champions league in 5 years) . REALLY! Run the club how you want but don’t say one thing and do the complete opposite. we have been a laughing stock for years now when comes to things off the pitch, and to be fair before delboy and rodders took over so I did give them some time to get things right but ( and this is just my opinion) the way they have handled things from the time of the move from Upton Park has been nothing short of embarrassing! I’m always behind the team when they put the effort in and I don’t expect to win ever game . just play for the shirt! As for this window, we all know what’s needed ( as do those in charge) so get the business done or come out and say we can’t or won’t. no more bullshit! because to be fair, it’s just boring! Rant over.


3.) 25 Jan 2018 14:10:02
I have to disagree, I will be there Tuesday supporting the team, as I was when we were in the championship, as I would be if we were in league 1. Real fans stick with their team, through thick and thin. I still believe our board have the best interests of West Ham United at heart, they are fans too.

If they really are lining their pockets as some on here suggest (and it is a Business after all), then the last thing are going to want to see is West Ham United relegated. Our owners business acumen is the one thing none of us can doubt, they are highly successful people.


4.) 25 Jan 2018 14:30:54
The point I was making is that there’s a better way to do their business, stop saying “ we’ll get this player and that player” and then as has happened on more than one occasion we don’t get any of our so called targets! It’s not how it should be done and as I said it’s tired, boring, embarrassing and quickly becoming the new “ WedtHam way” which I’m sure you’ll agree none of us want!


5.) 25 Jan 2018 15:04:15
Chaps, both of what your saying is absolutely correct, there is one solution that would solve this debate once and for all

For the DGS and Brady to keep there mouth shut on speculation transfers and promising fans the earth, if they push up expectations from the fans and than let them down of course people will get the hump and have a negative view of them. so as long as they stop speculating and just go about their business behind closed doors be quiet and run the club in a professional manor, maybe they may get a little more appreciation.


6.) 25 Jan 2018 16:25:51
Hiya MIKESIRON I've supported west ham for 47 years and I have to say mate I agree with PEANUT since they have taken over they come out with statements like once we move into our new dwellings we can compete for the top four or win the title why do you think us DIE HARD SUPPORTERS feel cheated, while I know it's early days but come on SULLY stop talking nonsense and exposing your managers in public and I don't think they've got WEST HAM totally in their hearts more like their wallets, last season with ins and outs our net spend was £4 mill I know wages have increased but so have the gate RECIEPTS and premiership payments they've already come out and said if the right buyers come in they would sell the club while I know you cannot make money out of football (excluding top clubs) I truly believe they are trying to do just that all they talk about is what they spend but never what they get in don't trust them as far as I could throw them. COYI.


7.) 25 Jan 2018 16:31:20
Agreed WS, would be the best thing for all concerned .


8.) 25 Jan 2018 17:10:08
I certainly agree that the way we publicly conduct our business isn't the most ideal. However, I am pleased with the signing of Joao Mario. Shelvey sounds likely to follow and I think its important to have local lads in the team. Onwards and upwards.


9.) 25 Jan 2018 20:30:34
That exactly it if they do there business in a professional manner then there would be a problem
They say there local lads who support the team so why then are all the team around us able to get players in and were not
If MARIO does sign for us that would be a great signing as long as we buy him in the summer but I think if he come in January he'll be gone by the summer.


10.) 25 Jan 2018 20:31:51
I agree gkg66
I love west ham always have always will and if I would run my business the same way they do i would have no business
If I tell a client I will do something then I do it
I feel I been robbed with all there false promisees
They need to stop talking and put the money were there mouths are.


11.) 25 Jan 2018 20:32:15
So has MARIO signed as last i heard he hasn't agreed terms and the loan price is still to decided.


12.) 25 Jan 2018 20:55:49
I like the username because that's exactly the way I feel mate we've just signed a player on loan with no option to buy because the player isn't interested in a permanent deal if that's true then if it was me i'd have told the player this ain't the club for you us DIE HARD SUPPORTERS wouldn't accept it and if it is true then I've never heard so much BO----KS in my life call me negative I don't care but we only want players who would die to put on the CLARET AND BLUE. COYI.

thought he had his best game for a while against Bournemouth, my only criticism of him is he is keen to bomb forward, not so keen to track back after getting forwards. But the guy has a great engine, I like him.
