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!

Seems that most on here took out of that game the same as myself. Adrian HAS to start.

I have always felt if Adrian was on 100k+ a week he WOULD start. This is a microcosm for football in general.

MONEY RULES THESE DAYS. Joe Hart plays becuase he earns more.

Mike if that's true I must be bloody naive, but I am not into the inside info that you seem to be privy too? I thought it could possibly be that Hart was a clear favourite with Sullivan from the Birmingham days and was maybe responsible for his signing and would look to be losing face if any Manager preferred Adrian to Hart after investing heavily in him, wouldn't frankly look a good business decision from the co-owner? Stupid me for actually believing that form was a consideration! That means we expect to still see that bag of shite Arnautivic, plus Carroll continue to be played because they may be somewhere near fit and on bags of ££££!


2.) 04 Dec 2017 12:27:12
Hiya CHELMS1944 I know when CARROLL signed for us he had a clause that when fit he starts ed might be able to tell us if that's changed over to you please ED.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any clause in his contract, I do know that Trevor Francis has said publicly that when he was in charge of Birmingham he would often receive instructions regarding players due to contract clauses. For instance when they signed Peter Ndlovu he failed the medical, so they agreed a deal with Coventry to buy him on a pay as he plays basis. Each appearance he made triggered another payment. Francis kept using him as a sub and Sullivan sent him an instruction not to use him any more as it was costing too much. Carroll is one of the highest paid players in the Prem, there is no way the owners will want him to be watching from the sidelines while they pay those huge wages.....}


3.) 05 Dec 2017 16:22:36
Hello Gkg66, thanks for that, bloody pity they didn't insert the clause, the less you play the more your wages drop! Am amazed at the clauses that go in, with all the business acumen that you would think exists in clubs, or does it, the club could also have a clause to say, but only if the current Manager considers your form to be above other players that can play in your position. I probably haven't worded that very well but I'm sure you get the gist of what I'm trying to say?


4.) 05 Dec 2017 20:05:15
Hiya CHELMS1944 just found out that when he first signed for us that was included in his contract mate it and ed is spot on because the wages he's on Hernandez apart he'd be top earners.

Sean Dyche is the only manager West Ham United should be looking at, that's if they are looking.

Still far too early to even be thinking of sacking the manager. Still back Slav.

Still, despite all the calls for Bilic to go I do not see any feasible replacements being suggested.

Nor do I see any top class managers putting their hands up for the West Ham United job.

The players like the boss, I just want my club climb the table again.

1.) 26 Sep 2017 09:43:18
I doubt anyone would know if any managers put their hands up for the job other than the DG's! . especially ones in jobs already wouldn't for obvious reasons!


2.) 26 sep 2017 21:43:33
eddie howe is the man for the. job i know afc aren't setting the world alight but why don't you think they havent sacked him because they rate him so highly he just hasn't got the players at afc i truly believe with our squad of players he would be a huge success. coyi.


3.) 27 Sep 2017 06:27:33
Doubt he would come.


4.) 27 Sep 2017 08:07:33
Sean dyche or eddie howe for me.


5.) 27 Sep 2017 17:24:44
Id take either one straight away. Class managers. just csnt see it happening. More like Steve McLaren lol.


 

 

08 Sep 2017 22:05:30
Evening all,

I am a big fan of continuity and I do want Slav to keep his job because I would imagine it's a tough job the West Ham United job. What top manager is going to take the job?

The stadium is a fantastic ATHLETICS stadium, not a football stadium.

Sullivan has been prooved a liar which we already know and now he's in bother . Sporting are run by football people and he's a dodgy dealer he's tearing the soul out of our club and its got to stop. Time to protest at the game monday and show the board we ain't having no more. I hope sporting sue his lying a#*se and expose his dodgy looking email proof.


 

 

28 Aug 2017 14:34:06
Afternoon all,

Call me old fashioned but Slav hasn't even had a home game yet, sacking the manager after 3 games of the season is just bonkers.

Also, for everyone saying he should go very few have suggested an alternative let alone an upgrade.

I will be going WBA away and hope to see Slav there too.

1.) 28 Aug 2017 15:24:13
It's not just 3 games mate, last season was poor, playing players out of position like Antonio at right back to name just one, Antonio actually come out and said in public he doesn't like playing there so we're lucky we've managed to hold onto him and he hasn't asked to leave, the football is dull at the moment its too slow we seem to pass sideways and backwards all the bloody time so personally I think it needs freshening up before we really are playing catch up.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 17:12:46
Also the system he is deploying was the same last year when we had a poor run of results which is playing aback four but two of the back four r being asked to play as wing backs but r pushed up in to midfield . Which leaves the cbs isolated and out numbered if we don't retain the ball last year koyate was pushed in to help out had a back 3 which gave extra cover to the cbsqhich kinda make sense the carvello move or another dm.
