A lot of debate over alleged Gomez comments of wanting to play in Champions League. I think people over play this, it isn't a case of wanting to play Champions League really or else they would be happy to sign for Steau Bucharest or some such club. No what players mean I believe is they want to play for a top club in England, Spain, Germany, Italy or perhaps France. Probably one of 14 or 15 clubs. So all they are really saying is I would like to play for Liverpool, areal Madrid, Barcelona and unfortunately Valencia. But we shouldn't think that puts us way down the pecking order. If those clubs don't secure a player they then have a priority generally of playing in one of the top 4 leagues and we can offer that. It may be only for a couple of seasons but it is the obvious stepping stone if they want to play for the very top clubs.

I agree with all of that, but there are more high quality players who want to play for top clubs than there are spaces available for them and they’ve got to ply their trade somewhere, if not only to show the top clubs what they’re missing for their next move.

A club like WH simply needs to be sufficiently persuasive and we’re in a better position to do that with MP at the helm.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 15:25:08
I posted gomez won't be coming to us but it was not shown . Well as just now on sky sports the deal is off hope this one gets posted.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 15:40:42
The player never wanted to come
I hope we haven’t put all our eggs in one basket
with Gomez as time is running out.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 16:09:39
Let’s wait and see, sky sports posted yesterday that deal was virtually done so do they know what’s going on!
If he comes then great but if not then it’s not the end of the world.

5.) 09 Jul 2019 16:30:35
Sky sports talk absolute crap although wouldn't be surprised if this was true.

6.) 09 Jul 2019 18:21:24
Weve been here before everybody. What's this rumour about Balotelli.

7.) 09 Jul 2019 19:42:38
Wonder what the odds are on Shinji Okazaki and Fernando Llorente joining us? I'm very worried. I just can't shake the feeling.

8.) 09 Jul 2019 21:36:04
I do believe he is off to Valencia as it’s more than one source now. But the point is still right as Makro said they only have so many spots - I just hope we have been casting the net a little wider than one player.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 08:15:14
it has become very tiresome reading about Gomez, Gomez bloody Gomez, he clearly is not interested in WH! I think some managers are glory seeking toward the fans with some so called marquee signings that are unproven in the UK by offering contracts that are an insult to a number of our existing players! What discord and upset this can cause in a squad, that is poor man management to Me, we are a TEAM as are all others, look at previous examples of ours who are no more than maybe decent players on a good day, Hernandez £140k, Arnie £120k, disgrace, we should follow Spurs wage structure, they have some far better players than ours on a lot less money! Continued Success and results can’t lie!

10.) 10 Jul 2019 19:06:59
I think most deals are structured especially the big money transfers. It's far from over they could perhaps renegotiate if structure was actually the issue.



18 Jun 2019 21:31:55
Report in Spain that Gomez doesn't want to join West Ham prefers Valencia but is also dragging his heels to see who else comes in.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 08:01:13
If he is umming and arring and his agent is trying to tout him than good luck to them both, its obvious they don't care where they go as long as the money is right.

I have heard from a decent source that we are going to go in for both Smalling and Jones. arhhhhh someone please tell my my mate is winding me up.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 14:02:34
Your mate is winding you up.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 03:35:26
Smalling and Jones, the tea lady must have found some loose change in the back of the couch again. Five pound forty pence should cover them :)

4.) 20 Jun 2019 09:23:33
Your mate is definitely winding you up. These types of transfer are long gone at WH.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 23:30:45
See now supposedly we have agreed terms with Gomez - what to believe.

6.) 21 Jun 2019 23:10:11
I'd ask for BAILLY from utd so underated for me . COYI.



21 Jan 2019 11:24:24
Rumours Spurs want Carroll for 2 mill. Now I don't think Carroll adds much but hope we don't sell to Spurs. Why help them? Prefer he goes for nothing at season end than Spurs for 2 mill.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 13:00:30
He is not going to spurs, someone is on a wind up.



30 Oct 2018 00:09:49
How much truth in the Diop/ PSG rumour? I'm sure they would keep an eye on French players doing well but are they really lining up a 50m bid? Would be a great profit but surely we want to keep the players we bring in but I guess the risk with any foreign players is they will want to take a good opportunity back home if it arises.


1.) 01 Nov 2018 17:21:53
HE WONT be leaving just yet whatever happens He’s the star of the transfer window IF we get a genuine bid of 60 m plus maybe BUT there have been NO enquiries so far. IRONMIKE.

Watching Adrián win the Super Cup reminded me of a post on a social network I read the other day about him, and I thought how true. It's like breaking up with your girlfriend on good terms and wishing them all the best, but then seeing them with their new boyfriend so soon and feeling upset they have managed to move on and be happy.


1.) 15 Aug 2019 08:08:15
Agree entirely but so pleased for Adrian👍 Absolute professional and a dedicated, loyal person, unlike others we all know to well have been at our club😂😂 Well done Klopp for such a shrewd move to get him, just wish we had managed to keep him happy enough as such an experienced standby! I can only think that Klopp suggested he would get more playing time with Liverpool as they are always going to be involved in many competitions when Allison would have been rested? So great move Adrian👍Well pleased for you, our loss certainly reds gain and you’re already paying them back for their faith in you👍👍.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 00:29:19
Agreed. Good luck to him but as you say do wish we could have kept him as backup.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 01:17:49
Majority of people slagging off WILSHIRE wasn't justified IMO as his passing percentage was 87.5 and he went off with a dead leg which us sensible especially with his injury recOrd if and a big if he stays injury free and has a long run in the ream then judge him not on the opening game against the top three sides in world football he's even apparently hire a private trainer from Ireland so let's get behind the lads tough one Saturday as our record against the seagulls isn't great and they started very well last week so it's going to be tough but man for man we have better players but need to play for each other and not for themselves. COYI.



19 Jul 2019 04:10:16
All transfer stuff aside, have to say I think they have done a good job with the shirts this year. My kids have the new home shirts and they do remind me of the good old days of Brooking, Devonshire, Bonds and co. The white shirt with the FA Cup Final nod is nice as having a 'Gooner' old man I love it. Then the release of the third shirt the other day, it just looks good IMO, really stylish and hope they wear it a few times - all in all pretty pleased with them.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 09:59:24
They all look good. I’m sure they will play a game or two in the third kit (which I actually think is the best), if not only to help with sales.



10 Jul 2019 21:55:58
I know people are sick of the Maxi Gomez stuff and it's probably, barring a miracle, all over. But the odd one for me is why did people who are generally in the know say West Ham booked a medical? Yes heard the reason people gave that they always book it in so it can go ahead if they land the player - but the guy has been in South America the whole time, hasn't been in Spain, hasn't spoken by all accounts as he is in the mountains fishing, so no way was he making a medical anywhere on a days notice and still shows that 90% of the news has been absolute rubbish.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 11:17:28
It is silly season Sdl :) on Gomez I'm a little suprised as to how some fans have been negative towards him since his intentions where madd clear . He never said he wanted to play for us only wanted Valencia. Wedt ham need to move on quickly and not chase players who have no interest in us.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 11:46:24
Agreed, good luck to him, we need to move forward and find a striker or two - he hasn’t don’t anything wrong, hasn’t lead anyone on, we just need to push forward as a club and find someone who will push us towards top six so next time we can sell something better.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 13:50:58
Could be an interesting view weeks to come, am wondering why our DOF is also travelling to China, looking at anyone out there or just sticking close to MP? I'd just have thought he would stay in London and the transfer team .



27 Feb 2019 22:47:29
Good defensive performance today. Rode our luck a bit early but were strong defensively and held the line so well. Johnson had a good debut. Got caught out of position a couple of times but what an experience for the young guy. Diop was awesome today, showed real authority. Sad to lose to such a soft penalty. If Lanzini went down as easy in the other box when he played it across to Carroll surely he would have gotten a penalty too. Anyway good showing and now we need to go after 9 points in the next three games.


1.) 28 Feb 2019 10:31:34
12 in the next 4!



22 Feb 2019 19:49:59
We look like we are still on holiday - awful start.


1.) 22 Feb 2019 21:46:27
Great result although we have the ball away far too easily in the 2nd half. Seriously like Tom Cairney and Mitrovic, both would be good options for us in the Summer.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 22:56:11
Tom Cairney is a good player, that run that he did through the middle and then played a great pass was class. Not sure about Mitrovic. I think if we are to move forward we really need a great finisher.

3.) 23 Feb 2019 01:01:30
Not a satisfying game, but we got the result, clear handball Hernamdez, Cairney on our very very long list of possibles IRONMIKE.

4.) 23 Feb 2019 08:13:03
Yes handball but VAR would also give us the clear penalty when Hernandez was pushed over as the keeper tried to get to Antonio’s shot.

5.) 23 Feb 2019 08:14:45
I would have Cairnwy and Mitrovic all day long, I would have one Mitrovic for Hernandez, Carroll, Perez, Fulham could have all 3 in p/ x for me! Hernandez is a cheating snowflake Championship player at best and I hope they review his Marradonna type goal and give him a ban! I would have been well p—— off if that had happened at the opposite end! Cairnwy is bloody class, I would rate him similar to Rice, he will go in the summer window that’s for sure! I thought Fulham played some decent stuff last night, with some obvious frailties, but we have ours as well! Bloody recall Hugill rather than persist with the usual trash up front! ⚒⚒.

6.) 23 Feb 2019 08:22:52
LOTS to do in the window as I said we are goingti be a busy club. IRONMIKE.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 08:28:53
I thought Rice was outstanding last night. His vision to break up play is just fantastic. He reads the game so well and his tackling is so crisp and efficient. I agree that Cairney would be a good asset to the team, thought we should have got him last summer as he is class. Mitrovic is powerful and very much a handful, but for me he does not score enough and we need a out and out goal scorer.

8.) 23 Feb 2019 11:18:11
Well said, spot on, we are not finishing the chances created. We have had this problem for a long long time The last few games I lost count of how many times we crossed the ball to Errrr No one I just sit there and Gently shake my head Wondering what would happen if we had a quality pair up front it’s time to sort this out this coming window, RICE, as, I posted is an. 80 m player and he will not be sold either or MP will go up the wall, he’s the first name on the team sheet now, We have a fine little nucleus to the squad, and a few decent squad players, it’s how to juggle the finances, to fill the many voids, it can be done, it’s just three numbers but it’s a long way in football from 9th to 6th which is our aim It’s going to be easily as interesting as last year when we get to end April, so you can get the feel about the window. IRONMIKE.

Hopefully he does well as obviously we couldn’t find anyone who wanted to buy him. If we could have sold him it would have been better.

Depends on signing on fees etc. so probably a bit more but would be an upgrade.

As mentioned a couple of days ago, by all accounts he has some sort of clause that allows a CL team to get him for an unspecified fee. Again CL team really only means England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany so 15 or so clubs of which several won’t have space so a concern but if he does sign we really need the team as a whole to push forward so players don’t want to leave. As someone said yesterday, would be sad if players didn’t have ambition to play CL, but while CL is probably a way off yet, we need to players to be feeling they have the players around them to push the club forward.

Not sure it will be our strongest line up against Newport, I would think he would want to give game time to Ajeti, Cardoso, Johnson, zabaletta, Noble and probably start Yarmolenko and a back up keeper at a minimum.

My opinion is Wilshire again got bypassed too much. He isn't quick enough so unless a ball is played to his feet and he is in and around the box he doesn't add much. Was good that he got taken off at half time. Antonio was far more dangerous.
