Hi Mike or Eds, I wonder if anyone could let me know what the situation with Jack Butland is? What is his likely destination in the summer or will he stay with Stoke? I have heard a 30Million price tag banded about?
Thank you.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 12:21:39
Liverpool I would guess at this time his most likely new home, esoecialy at 30m, WH amongst many would be interested. Should the price drop a bit or should I say a lot but there’s nothing so far from us IRONMIKE.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 12:33:52
Thanks Mike.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 16:21:11
Hi Mike gt info mate, is there any truth that MP has got problems already with the board.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 18:38:30
MP was already in the know regarding wages limitations before he took the job don’t let the media or other ITK. Sites wind you up with anything else WH are trying to keep a wages structure remember Leeds now possibly Villa . how close did we come to joining them? IRONMIKE.



30 May 2018 13:20:50
Hi mike, I know his has been asked before but has there been any update on contract situations with lanzini and rice? Thanks.


1.) 30 May 2018 17:56:25
Not at present. IRONMIKE.

2.) 30 May 2018 23:28:58
Hiya NOEL is was born in Chelsea mate and out of my two brothers and about 100 close friends i'm the only HAMMER and I wouldn't change a thing as I love our club and I'm extremely passionate about WEST HAM UNITED p. 's I'm lying I'd change the owners but beggers can't be choosers. COYI.



14 Mar 2018 09:30:23
Hi Ironmike I wonder if you could clarify something for me. Was Reece Oxford loaned out because Moyes does not think he is good enough or is it because Oxford simply did not want to be here?
On another note, why is Hugill not getting any game time whatsoever or is he simply been deemed not good enough?


1.) 22 Mar 2018 16:42:23
HURGILL started yesterday against DAGENHAM he scored but apparently didn't perform well and isn't PREMIERSHIP STANDARD me personally think he's being judged on 15 min of substitute cameos but it stinks of a panic buy to shut the fans up otherwise with our injurys he'd have started by now and they won't get their money back on him but if we get relegated perhaps he will perform in the championship which he belongs and was probably brought for. COYI.



14 Feb 2018 07:55:44
Hi mike, do you think the fact Hernandez is playing and scoring might change Moyes' opinion on him? Or is he still likely to leave in the summer?


1.) 14 Feb 2018 09:11:46
Could be kissy and make up time we shall have to wait a while longer yet IRONMIKE A.

2.) 19 Feb 2018 10:38:59
How true MIKE is the rumour that BAMBA is going to sign a pre contract agreement from st etienne a 21 year old striker. COYI.



30 Jan 2018 12:46:36
Any news regarding Schurrle? I heard West Brom are now interested? I would think he would be a good signing or have we just gone cold on this one?


1.) 30 Jan 2018 13:08:26
It's obvious we were never in for any of them, if we are guzumped by Albion and even Watford now.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 13:11:51
Like 99% of the transfers we are linked with.
We enquire to make it look like we're interested just to keep the fans hapoy. When the other team say we can buy the player and name the price Rodney and Delboy stick their fingers in the ears and sing LA LA LA really loudly until someone else buys said player.

Hi guys, can you imagine if we really did manage to bring in Felipe Anderson, Issa Diop and Alban Lafont. What an exciting and excellent start to the window that would be, bringing in young talented players who can develop and hopefully flourish at West Ham.


1.) 11 Jun 2018 12:55:35
Imagine if I won the lottery. I'd be so happy. both have the same likelihood though unfortunately.

2.) 11 Jun 2018 13:51:56
well that is a big bummer, c'mon Dave we have to be positive! Have faith in Pellegrini.

3.) 11 Jun 2018 16:21:05
It seems West Ham have refused to grant Manuel Pellegrini his preferred choice Argentine Mario Husillos to be the club’s new head of recruitment, according to the a certain tabloid

The newspaper claim the new Hammers manager has “lost” a boardroom battle with co-owner David Sullivan and David Gold as he pushed for Husillos to be appointed the club’s new transfer guru to replace sacked Tony Henry.

4.) 11 Jun 2018 16:51:12
I know mate. Just hard when you've been fed so much s**t and all you expect is more of the same. I guess I'm skeptical about the whole 'we are after quality players' when this just screams lacazette all over againn.

5.) 11 jun 2018 17:39:17
spot on dave and still we sniff riund that exact player you mentioned lacazette who's turned us down on numerous times and is way out of our price range dave here we go again unfortunately. coyi.

6.) 11 Jun 2018 20:46:42
It's all a ploy to get us all hyped up and then turn round and say. we tried but didn't work out. well this time no one believes the bs.

7.) 11 Jun 2018 23:05:02
MAKE YOU BANG ON MATE what's your opinion on ANDERSON dave because I really can't see it happening because the minute LAZIO adjust their asking price to £30-35 million that will be that as SSN are saying we've only offered £17.5 but MIKE said that's B/ S and the deal should happen at the end of week I'll be the first to say to Mike I was wrong but just can't see it can you dave. COYI.

8.) 12 Jun 2018 05:50:04
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




9.) 12 Jun 2018 06:47:18
Again. we seem to be the standard '6-7' mil short. I said last week I can't see it happening and that it will drag on for a while and then it will fall Through but 'they tried everything's to get him k blah blah blah.

10.) 12 Jun 2018 07:35:13
Hi stubbo
That’s a very weak starting 11 especially if we
Don’t get Anderson but I don’t totally disagree
with u tho
Cresswell for me is over rated
Masuaku blows hot and cold
Lets hope we actually sign someone with this
money we reportedly have.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 08:53:40
well considering lanzini looks out for the whole season we will need to replace him with someone creative.

12.) 13 Jun 2018 19:25:57
Every window we have an epic tale going on. Last window it was dendoncker this window Anderson?



08 Jun 2018 11:43:25
Just seen the news about Manuel Lanzini, absolutely gutted for him. I am sure I speak for everyone here when I pray that he will have as swift as can be hoped recovery and that he comes back stronger.




06 Feb 2018 10:25:58
The big worry for West Ham right now is, can you see 3 worse teams than us?


1.) 06 Feb 2018 11:26:10
Hi WH4, well there Huddersfield, and er er er er er er er er er,

Once Arnie is back and Antonio along with Mario we have just a chance as any of rthe teams down there, as long as Moyes still has the heart to care about us staying up if reports are correct his leaving.

Im hoping his on a big bonus to keep us up and along with his reputation that needs repairing I think we will be OK.

But the worrying thing is Swansea are getting their act together, WBA although a little adrift can produce under Pardew, I think Huddersfield are on the slippery slope but the other 2 positions are any one guess, I just hope we have enough as mentioned above.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 13:07:43
Entirely agree Warrington and not much more to add, can now see the point in not selling to relegation rival, we’ve done Swansea a right favour with their 2 long term injuries. On the lighter side bit surprised Ed’s and Mike didn’t know the last time DGS paid to watch as W. H. Fans, 😂😂think it could be when they put in millions££ to take control, expensive season tickets to watch a team face possible relegation.

4.) 06 Feb 2018 13:10:57
Ps, think Moyes shouldn’t have commented on leaving regardless of our position, not good for morale for those players that are responding to him!

5.) 06 Feb 2018 13:21:29
No he should not, I fear it could further destabilize us. What is the betting that Andre Ayew scores against us when we play Swansea.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 13:23:39
The big issue is IF we survive it won't be because we have played well it will be, yet again, because there are more than 3 teams who are not good enough for this league. In my opinion this relegation race is so tight because we have 11 teams in the premier league who have been extremely poor and based on this season are not good enough.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 13:24:57
You can dress it up as much as you want but the simple truth is we shouldn't being this position with the players we got I understand we've had injury's but so have other clubs you have to rise above that but to get beat 6-1 on aggregate to BRIGHTON isn't good enough we have a team good enough to beat this and the salary some of our players are on they just haven't confirmed that salary with consitant performances and that's wrong so the players we have and are stuck with have to perform plain and simple the only people we have to blame if we are relagation is 1 the players,2 the main reason is THE TROTTERS FACT, THEY HAVE PUT WEST HAM IN A VERY PRECARIOUS PLACE AND THE QUICKER THEY ARE GONE THE BETTER. COYI.

8.) 06 Feb 2018 13:54:26
Could be WH4 that's the 11 teams in question are of equal standings,

I just looked at our fixtures, and I can only see us getting 10 more points and i'm serious, I hope i'm totally off the mark, but in general for me its 10 points, will 37 be enough?

9.) 06 Feb 2018 14:30:40
Oh I agree I think they are, but I also think the likes of Wolves would put all 11 to the sword.
I am very fearful of relegation, I think this game against watford will be a good indicator.

10.) 07 Feb 2018 10:46:22
I don't believe in 6 month contracts all that points to SULLIVAN PLAYING SAFE YET AGAIN.



01 Feb 2018 07:04:01
I for one am seriously concerned for the rest of the season. We have nobly mario and kouyate to cover midfield till the end of the season. I for one see zero logic in selling Ayew to a rival mid season if you are not going to reinvest the money. With such a small squad getting rid of him is baffling, he would at the very least done a job till the summer but instead he has strengthened Swansea and we are weaker. What happens if Noble gets injured? We won't have a midfield. Personally extremely worried.




20 Nov 2017 09:06:35
I think the big problem here is, where can anyone realistically see us picking up points? Can anyone actually name me three teams that are currently worse than us? Crystal Palace certainly aren’t, maybe Swansea? Maybe West Brom? Maybe Everton? But I am really scraping the barrel with those three. Where are we going to pick up points, I worry for when we play Leicester because of our lack of pace will be horrible exploited again.
Looking at yesterday’s game, it was an all too familiar story and while Moyes doesn’t fill me with optimism I am not going to jump on him immediately as he has only had two weeks (I think everyone on here agrees that in reality the board should take a large chunk or responsibility for this situation and I think Bilic was simply hung out to dry by them) . I can look at the game from a point of view and say that Watford’s second goal probably shouldn’t have stood and we had three or four fantastic chances and missed them all, world class save or not the keeper should not be given a chance for 5 yards. In reality we didn’t deserve to get anything from that game, it’s amazing how good a team can look when they aren’t closed down or challenged, even a Sunday league team can be made to look like Barcelona if you let them just pass it around without a challenge. My point here is that it is far too easy for teams to beat us or outplay us when we don’t seem to show any fight or work rate. I do appreciate that we were missing Antonio, Ayew and Hernandez but our midfield three was a concerning lapse and lazy attitude, careless errors over and over (and personally I am a big fan of Obiang but none of the midfield three played well yesterday) .
Rant over, I will continue to hope to see improvements, apologies if anyone disagrees but sometimes you just need to vent!


1.) 20 Nov 2017 11:50:26
Thanks WH4EVER for saving me from saying your exact words what does everybody think of HART he's glued to his line I thought a keeper was supposed to come for corners and crosses that's the advantage of using your hands and come off your line to narrow down the angles he should have saved the second goal and the save he made was not a great save it was expected to be saved from a so called WORLD CLASS KEEPER ( NOT FOR ME ADRIAN IS AS GOOD AS HIM) .

2.) 20 Nov 2017 14:14:04
Thank you Gkg, at least I am on the same wave length as someone!
I think Hart probably should have saved the second goal and I think if you pay the wages that reportedly we are paying you would maybe expect a better goalkeeper. Is he really better than Adrian? In reality I would say there is very little in it.
I don't think however Hart is the problem in our team, he was arguably our best player against Crystal Palace and we would have lost that game if not for him. I think if we want to be pointing fingers at under performing players then he is not top of my list. The players in front of him are leaving him exposed time and again, I mean how many times do we see Hart being forced into making one on one saves or the opponent getting a free header from a corner/ free-kick. Could he come and claim some of these? Yes he probably could but I also feel if you are being subjected to that many shots per game chances are mistakes will be made, just look at Jordan Pickford at Everton no doubt a perfectly solid goalkeeper but faces so many shots per game that its inevitable that he will make a couple of errors.
So in summary I would not have signed a new goalkeeper as our No.1 unless it was a subtantial improvement on Adrian and I don't think many would say Hart is that, but at least he appears to be trying and at least he actually seems to have some fire about him which is more than can be said about many of the 11 out there yesterday. There are other players in the firing line for blame if you ask me, top of that list is Carroll (extremely fortunate to not be sent off yesterday) .

3.) 21 Nov 2017 17:55:59
Spot on WH4EVER the first two I'd out his CARROLL AND NOBLE Carroll isn't as good in the air as people think especially against same height as him count how many clear headers he won he didn't win many and a couple of balls he played under pressure out on the left to the back four ( nowhere near anybody ) wasn't even a footballers ball like something you'd see from a pub player he has to be sold from brainwashed managers that rate him we could get decent money although I'd rate him at 6-8 mill and that's it NOBLE well I ain't going there WHUEVER everybody download the second half especially and watch him he looked like a three legged dog chasing a fly his head was like one of those nodding dogs you put on your parcel shelf of car just jogging around chasing shadows PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, everybody watch it back it's CRIMINAL he's EARNING THAT MONEY NOW AT LEAST DICK TURPIN WORE A MASK.

I think the point you are missing Stubbo is the glaring weakness in our midfield which has been evident for 2-3 seasons. Nobody is saying we have had a bad window, we have had a great window, people are just saying that huge gap still exists, if anything we are maybe slightly weaker there after selling Kouyate.

Why is the Gomes deal dead Mike? If Maia goes to Watford that is a big mistake from us.

We are surely not being gazumped, if we have shown no interest in dendoncker since pellegrini, we have cooled on Gomes and said no to Sturaro.

Are Gomes and Joao Mario not quite similar players? It surprises me we would not get Mario back on loan seeing as we know he was a relative success.

Joao Mario surprises me. Is there any hope for loftus Cheek or is he definitely staying at chelsea?

I persobally don't think we ve bought badly though only time will tell obviously. Problem is we did not address the very obvious problem in our squad.

Noble can't be a sub as we don't have a defensive midfielder to replace him.

I would like to think we could get 8th this season, but after last year i would be happy with a top 10 finish and that gives us something to build on for next year.

As for Liverpool away well i don't think we could have had a tougher first game of the season. If we got anything out of that it would be fantastic and my head says we will probably lose 2-1/ 3-1 but my eternally opimistic heart says a hammers win 3-1 :) .

The lack of quality and depth in DM/ CM is concerning, selling Kouyate is no great loss based on the last 2 seasons, I am sad about Obiang though. Let us hope that we bring in two quality central midfielders as replacements.

I totally agree with what you say Chelmsford believe me I do, I just look at how integral he is to our squad and think "can we guarentee that can be replaced". Swansea were able to get £45M i think it was for Sigurddson last season when the player was clearly making noises for wanting to leave. He is one year younger than Arnie and was Swansea's most important player look at them now. I am not saying we will be doomed if we sell him but for me it sends a negative message. If his head is turned then there is little we can do about it, we all agree on that. Hopefully like you say he will buy into what is trying to be built at West Ham.
