So the "rumours" of an "exciting" ex player returning are back on.

Can't see it being Payet. Sakho or Song maybe?

Any clues Mike?


1.) 06 Jul 2018 10:08:43
Tomkins would be my shout!

2.) 06 Jul 2018 11:17:31
Carlton cole obviously haha.

3.) 06 Jul 2018 11:21:40
Sorry mates i wouldn't touch him with a barge pole. We don't need players like him in our club.



05 Jun 2018 22:25:39
Interesting Pellegrini stating in Chile he's trying to get Sullivan to loosen up and sign a "great player" to help with attracting others.

Guessing he's talking about Pastore, though not convinced we should me matching his 190k a week while Lanzini who made the Argie squad over Pastore sits on 35k.

But, the premise that he's aiming high must surely be a good thing.


1.) 05 Jun 2018 23:35:51
Lanzini earns more than 35 pal 😂.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 14:36:48
Hi STUBBO he was on 35,000 he had a wage increase apparently. COYI.



30 Jan 2018 22:43:46
Antonio left out of the squad on disciplinary grounds tonight.

Trouble 't Mill?!


1.) 30 Jan 2018 23:16:19
Bust up with Noble?

2.) 30 Jan 2018 23:19:54
Over inflated ego after all the new contracts Sullivan has given him.



30 Jan 2018 14:21:36

Hey Mike,

What's the latest on:


Are we still negotiating or in the running for these two?

. and are we really in for Schneiderlin, or talking at any level about Brozovic?

Seems like as usual indecisiveness as much as commitment will be our undoing (which seemingly Moyes may be exacerbating) .

In other news Badou NDiaye that we were linked with in the Summer looks like heading to Stoke.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 15:18:26
Iron mike any chance we could try and push for fernando Torres on loan til end of season and pay all his wages? I know he's old but we need a striker. either that or Carlton cole.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 15:39:39
With a little over 24hours to go everything is looking desperate me owlde comrades another window virtually over with and more pondering mulling considering and under bidding. Even when we find players we are incapable of meeting asking price without trying to get a deal it's shocking.



28 Jan 2018 20:21:03
Sakho gone.

8m to Rennes (source ExWHU who in the past has had direct contact with the player as source) .

Apparently Sakho will be interviewing and going to town on the Club/ Board

And he's been fit and made himself available to play the last month apparently.


1.) 28 Jan 2018 21:14:31
ok, we need to hear the "other side" of what's going on in the club, so I am looking forward to hearing what he's got to say.

2.) 28 Jan 2018 21:31:50
Take into account he’s a moody sod who amongst other things going on the missing list feigning injuries and he wanted to return to France
He got his wish good riddance IRONMIKE.

Mike. anything at all you can do to assuage fears and rule out Ranieri?


1.) 17 May 2018 21:09:15
Stubbo, I’ve just seen Ranieris odds are shortening?

2.) 17 May 2018 21:20:46
Nothing on this one at present, let’s hope not, IRONMIKE.

3.) 17 May 2018 21:21:33
Odds shorten just because people place bets. Don't read anything into the odds.

4.) 18 May 2018 16:47:53
What’s up with Ranieri? Pl experience, has won it, knows the players and speaks English . SKybet have him at 12-1, got to be worth a punt in more ways than one.

5.) 19 May 2018 10:24:49
Dabber it's PELLEGRINI mate 100%.



13 Mar 2018 09:04:43
IRONMIKE not sure if I missed an update or not, but do you have any knowledge of what the response to Tabor and Group's enquiry was with respect putting investment in to the club, and have any insight on whether they will return?

Given current fan sentiment, the group would surely only need to make their interest known at the public level to receive vast support?


1.) 13 Mar 2018 11:47:52
New investment would be good IF THE money was used amongst other things to get us a professional director of football to deal with transfers, this would go a long way towards taking the club forward.



21 Nov 2017 06:04:33
Who do we think the "players with big reputations" are Moyes was referring to?

I'm thinking Carroll, Lanzini, Kouyate.

Really hoping for a shake up on Friday with some lesser lights like Rice, Ayew, Haksabanovic and Sakho being given the chance to stake their claims.

It's a shame it's a short week from a training perspective.


1.) 21 Nov 2017 11:05:07
I honestly can’t see Moyes changing the team
I feel rice should play centre half, I’d play
sakho up top wif ayew one side and Antonio
the other.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 17:38:52
If I'd play AYEW his all round play is awful but one thing he's suprised me with his he's a great finisher in the box so that's where I'd play him on the last man and get in the box at all costs a wide man he ain't if you look back at his Swansea days and against us he scored a great touch in the six yard box.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 21:56:41
Ayew is in my opinion a poor man's Chicharito.

His only issue is we expect him to be a talented ball playing winger as that was the perception.

Sniffing out goals from 6 yards he's very good at.

4.) 24 Nov 2017 11:46:35
I'm by no means an ayew fan but one thing I can't take away from him is that at least he tries and works hard, even if he ain't got the quality, and like u said stubbo he does seem to get in the right place to nick a goal from 6 yards.

Exactly what Markro said.

This guy should be pushed for to cover Lanzini as he's a shot to nothing.

He either comes in and performs and we keep him, or we sell him on amd turn a profit as he's under contract.

Plus in the short term the signing on fee/ agent fee is probably akin to what we could make on Snodgrass, or certainly on Antonio (and we get a squad upgrade into thr bargain) .

If you look at C&H there's pictures of him holding up a West Ham shirt.

He's in for sure.

Welcome 'General'!

It's great that he's looking to build a squad and not just a first XI.

Form, injuries, and match day management mean proper options are needed and not just kids and never weres.

Bernard in, Snodgrass out. Could end up about net evens!

Unfortunately the suggestion these other players are as effective just isn't true.

Payer once again made the most chances in Europe's top 5 leagues last season, ahead of De Bruyne and Insigne.

They both would cost over 80m. Payet for 20m odd is a snip.

I'd totally have him back.

Life is too short to hold a grudge and the bloke is a fantastic player. Loyalty in football is a myth, and is only really evident when it suits all involved.

Plus if Marseille need this we should look to stitch them up. they were as much party to having us over a barrel last time as Payet was, so we should only do this if it suits us.

But the idea he wouldn't drastically improve our squad is laughable, and he doesn't rely on straight line speed so the age is only really relevant from a re-sale perspective. His dead ball delivery will be as good as ever, and his speed of thought and ability to beat a man and pick a pass will still be there. His stats for Marseille last season showed he was in as good form as ever, and would likely have gone to the World Cup but for injury.

l'OM need to sell, so offer them 15-20m EUR, and bring back the most talented player we'vwe had at our club in a very long time.

I reckon Anderson will happen. Husillos will also join as head of Recruitment, and that we'll fail to address our CM woes.

That's my prediction is we'll start the season with:

New Keeper
New CB

I did include some links to articles in my previous post. guessing they got stripped out.

No desire to become embroiled in a row, but there are articles full of the sort of guff that West Ham fans were fed pre-Olympic stadium move.

I'm sure you know the absolute rot that was espoused from the stadium experience that would be delivered, to investment in the side, to the place unquestionably feeling like home, to things like the capacity that would be delivered.

There are some bug clubs in the league below now.

Bouncing back gets harder and harder. its always easier not to get relegated than to get promoted.

If we go down we're quite likely to be in the Brown stuff big time!
