Mike, Ed002

I wonder if you could explain the situation with transfers from abroad once the UK leave the EU, am I right in saying at the moment if a player is from a EU nation he can just move to an English club no problem but if from outside the EU needs a work permit. Once the UK leave will all players coming in from abroad require a work permit?

I could be totally wrong on the above and would appreciate some guidance.

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - A good question and the final answer has yet to be determined, but right now it goes something like this:
- If the player is an EU citizen he is allowed to work in the UK without the need for a Work Permit or Visa under the provisions of the treaty covering free movement.
- This also applies to uncontracted players under the Bosman Decision.
- Players from outside the EU need Government Body Endorsement and a Work Permit and the rules are stricter than they were (see at the end).
- There are different types of Work Permits available and typically two apply to footballers. Tier 2 means that the player can stay in the UK with a two year extention if they have 70 immigration points (which requires an FA endorsement, 10 for providing proof he won't be a strain on the state and 10 for the command of the English language (important). A Tier 5 WP only lasts a year where failure is on the English language test. It allows him to play and then master the language, sit a test and then apply for Tier 2 WP. Extensions can be provided to the length of contract.
- Moving forward post Brexit there is no decision but it has been discussed. One idea on the table is that any new application for EU citizens to move to the Premier League or move between PL clubs) will be the same process as for non EU players, and that players already at PL clubs will be given an exemption for the length of their existing contract.

The Work Permit requirements:

The player needs a minimum of four points and summary goes something like this:
- The value of the transfer fee (alone) that is to be paid is between the top 75% and 100% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 3 points
- The value of the transfer fee being paid for the player is between 50% and 75% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 2 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is in the top 25% of the top 30 earners at the club - 3 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is between 50% and 75% of all the top 30 earners at the club - 2 points
- Subjectively, the player’s current club is in a recognised "top" league and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point
- The player’s existing club has played in the group stages or onwards of the Champions League, Europa League or the Copa Libertadores within the last 12 months and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point

An excellent explanation but as I mentioned last week I’m sure a good proportion of this is going to change, so won’t be relevant / maybe not too radically at the end of this season, , but it will over the course next 2/ 3 seasons The FA will ring the changes, NOTE, Man City are already looking for more U. K. talent, and they will drive up the prices, of Home grown lads. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure what won't be relevant. Many of the clubs are looking to HG players to bolster the squad but this results in prices rising sadly.}

2.) 20 Feb 2019 12:22:37
Goodness Thanks Ed 002, very informative and in depth and much appreciated.

Now for my 2nd question albeit in theory.

When leaving the EU and its regulations, if the Premier League or FA wanted to ( massive if), could they bring in a rule where as only a certain amount of non UK players can be in a squad?,

Basically what i'm getting at could they go back to the days when I think only 2 foreign players were allowed in a team. Obviously this won't happen but I just wanted to know if they wanted to could they as no longer under EU Working Law.

{Ed002's Note - They will not look to change the rule in that way and it won't be related to non-EU players, but they may look to increase the HG quota from 8 to something else (12 has been proposed). The means the non HG quota would reduce to 13 and they would also have to amend the rules as some of the HG quota will be EU or even non EU (rest of the world) nationals (e.g. Nathan Ake is HG but an EU national.}

3.) 20 Feb 2019 13:11:28
Edd002 note, bloody hell Ed, well done for the info on Warrington’s post👍Think I would have been inclined to say, no idea, look up for yourself😂🤣 Understood some but, became a bit complicated for me, but they pay their own people good money to sort it out! I ‘m only interested in who WH, sign not who they can’t sign! Looks like we could have some favourites back in again on Friday from injury, so that will be very interesting, if Lanzini gets on, he will get some ovation from the Stadium, what a massive miss he has been. Don’t want to tempt fate, but should be 3 points for us here⚒⚒⚒⚒COYI.

Just a thought on the potential requirement for more HG players - if fewer superstars can be in the PL and its quality, by definition, goes down, I wonder if tv rights will be less attractive and packages will suffer.



15 Jan 2019 14:23:58
I just read a report Hernadez has agreed personal terms with Valencia for £140k a week, apparently this is reports from Sky Italia.

It says noting about a transfer fee or mush else, is this just usual BS from bored journalist with no that have sweet FA to write about?

Warrington Seymour

1.) 15 Jan 2019 15:43:53
If Arnie and hernadez do go that will bring the wage bill down
Through Antonio up front
Should leave enough in the pot to bring in a striker and cm.

Moussa marega would be my choice.



01 Oct 2018 08:45:30
Well Well Well, it looks MP has finally got his system right and the players to carry out his plan. I was as many on his back and thought it inevitable the writing was on the wall for him and his staff, perhaps DS can use the compo money put aside for MP and his staff and pay Rice what he is worth.

I thought Fabinski was brilliant, he looked safe and assured, as was most of the players.

Have we employed a surgeon does any one know?, It looks like Zabba and Nobbs have both had leg transplants there were brilliant Rice is getting better and better and Arnie was superb leading the line.

A personal apology from my end to MP as I honestly thought he had lost the plot, congrats to those on here that did say give him time and stuck to their guns.

We now look like we have a system and we ARE looking good, i'm not getting carried away but this season maybe we can use to bed in with this new system, it will confirm to MP what players he can move on and more excitedly what new players to bring in to suit his style. could this be at last the move forward we were promised?

Before anyone shoots me down, i'm not getting carried away after 3 brilliant results, but I can see a style of how he wants to play for the future and it looks exciting. long may it continue.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 01 Oct 2018 10:54:57
Well said Warrington. I voiced my concerns a while back on this
Yay - We're brilliant, great appointment, great signings - excited
Then overnight
Rubbish - Manager is past it, terrible signings, sack everyone, usual Hammers doom and gloom again
Yeah of course I was worried after first few games, but I did really hope that it was really just a matter of time to settle down, find a system, lots of new signings from abroad etc.
Yeah as a Hammers fan I'm used to false dawns and lack of ambition but also I have patience. Not got excited much since 1986, so I'm pretty easily satisfied.

2.) 01 Oct 2018 13:47:55
Question of course now is where does Wilshire fit in after his injury?

3.) 01 Oct 2018 14:26:58
I have to agree with you all, future looking exciting however my worry now is that we have had a few more long term injuries so look pretty exposed if the likes of Rice, Obiang, Noble get injured, any suggestions who you think would replace those three if they get injured.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 17:54:03
I think Obiang and Noble doing so well infront of Dec is a blessing for us in terms of Jack. Firstly, we need more then two players who can play in those 2 CM positions to have a good season. Secondly, MP seems to have settled for a NATURAL DM in a 3 man midfield, which is perfect for JW to flourish, as it has done for Noble and Obiang's games. Thirdly, he has genuine competition for his place now so he needs to motivate himself to get back in and then keep his place.
Im interested to see where Snodgrass plays in the future. Seems the wing is not quite right (pace? ), and we have some good yougsters there. Maybe a more central role where is effort (great vs UTD) and passing is well suited.
My worry is Sanchez injury, we could be screwed if Dec gets injured. Who else plays there? Zaba? Already proved Noble and Obiang cannot do it.
This 11 is looking good, but the punch comes when we get injuries. I want Lanzini back! Word goes out to Antonio, think he has been better as a CF than on the wing, he is physically a handful there and was lucky not to have 2 vs Chelsea.

5.) 02 Oct 2018 08:04:09
Its all about a squad Nickinho, its inevitable that injuries will occur and missed games through yellow cards accumulation but as I mentioned above MP seems to have a certain way of playing as in a system and style,

You could even see that about the way the fringe players played against Macclesfield, ( i'm not talking about the result or how low MACCS are i'm talking about a tactical system on how the players were playing) so he must be involving all players on the training pitch and drilling this system in

We will have to see how we react when we need to replace a player . but we do have good players and will flourish under MP, this season for me is a bed in, let's get our feet under the table and than maybe next season start really to push and see where we go.

We are going to drop points against so called lower teams, we may get hammered against a couple of teams BUT we are starting to have a way of playing and this has been evident in the last 4 games, I am a little excited for the future now,

I honestly can not believe i'm typing this, 3 weeks ago I was having sleepless nights of Big Scam coming back :~)

6.) 03 Oct 2018 12:09:47
That could be a master stroke ZABALETTA at CDM or MASUAKU or FREDERICKS could play there if desperate. COYI.

7.) 03 Oct 2018 12:52:47
Sorry Whorya, but Masuaku cannot defend, great going forward but as a defender your first job is to defend. He just cannot defend!

8.) 03 Oct 2018 14:36:43
It is so tough to have a top quality squad of players these days, with strength in depth in all positions, especially for teams outside the top 6, funds are just not there given the huge fees on players and agents these days. Credit goes to the managers when they get the balance right. What is more important, a stand out player at £40m who could be hit and miss, or even get injured, or a decent squad of players to compete with each other? I suppose it depends on the base squad you already have, and the total funds you have, but it is a tough balance to get right each window.
To compare the cost of our "squad" of defensive players to Man City's, the total transfer fees we have paid for our whole defensive group of players (2xGK, 4xCB, 2xRB, 2xLB and 2xDM) is £61.6m (from transfermarket) . Man City paid £58.5m on Laporte alone! The total cost of our starting 11 vs Man Utd was £118m, while Pogba and Fellaini alone cost them £124m.
I think our transfer business this summer is proving to be great.

9.) 05 Oct 2018 09:31:34
Philmac, Regards your 1 October post,
where is Wilshere going to fit in after injury, my answer is, he simply won’t fit in anywhere and we honestly shouldn’t have had the problem as we shouldn’t have signed a crock! I have a very low opinion of him, a number on here rate him, I don’t, he’s his own biggest fan👎Thought I was in the minority, however looking for team news tonight, a related article by Tony Cascarino slated the signing saying "he was flabbergasted he was given such a lucrative contract given his poor injury record, he was a vanity signing, also WH have looked so much better without him and he is not suited to today’s Premiership standards due to fitness" etc.

Also he’s not the only ex pro to state that, our ex Dean Ashton had severe doubts about Wilshere, he was excellent maybe up to a couple of years ago, but not now, frightened to run and get tackled in case of affecting a reoccurrence! Massive waste of financial resources!

10.) 05 Oct 2018 16:34:28
Fair play Chelms, you have stuck by your opinion of JW. And as a Hammers fan I am sure you equally hope he proves you wrong and turns out great for us. What fan wouldnt.
Tony Cascarino was a bit unfair IMO. Saying West Ham have been better without him was a bit short sighted. Its true that we have been better since his injury, but unfair to suggest the improvement was because of Jack's absence. In those first 4 games NONE of the players (with the exception of Fabianski) were particularly impressive, and all the players were tactically adjusting and getting to know each other. People layed into Rice after the Liverpool game when he played DM, look at him now. I hope/ think Jack will be equally as good or even better than Noble and Obiang so long as Dec continues his fine form in DM.

11.) 05 Oct 2018 17:09:46
Nickino, that’s a very fair and honest assessment you have posted, you must be a very fair and patient man👍I don’t think it at all fair myself when well known personalities hang others in public knowing that possibly millions will read them, hopefully my own comments on JW is only read by a very small amount of people. As you say I would love JW to make me look a real mug and turn into a great signing🙈🙈will be nervously watching tonight hoping we can carry our form over to the Amex stadium tonight👍COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

03 Sep 2018 14:19:27
Mike or Ed 002, in your knowledge of wisdow what would be looking at in getting rid of MP and the rest of his entourage, could we be looking at 30m plus?

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know what the provision of the contracts are but it would not be a surprise if the cost was well over 7 figures.}

1.) 03 Sep 2018 17:33:46
Can't you send them back under the trade discription act - not fit for purpose lol.



27 Jul 2018 15:05:47
Hi Mike, I wonder if you could enlighten me if you can please.

Concerning Quina, is he coming to the end of his contract?, from the reports I have read he is an exciting talent, OK maybe not yet reached his potential but I have read Barcelona are about to snap him up for £600k

Obviously if his contract is coming to a end and wants to leave so be it but if not i'm wondering why are we letting him go for what relatively is peanuts for a possible talent in years to come, surely a loan out somewhere makes more sense.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 27 Jul 2018 15:29:59
Everybody has there own ideas but with a year left on contract it’s make your mind up time WH will try to sell Quina and put a large sell on clause in the deal just in case the boy comes. Good IRONMIKE.

2.) 27 Jul 2018 16:23:14
He didn't want to sign a new contract wants to try his luck somewhere else.

3.) 27 Jul 2018 19:49:08
His agents a probably abit of scoundrel by the looks of things he's already turned down opportunitys to go out on loan and prove himself capable of challenging for a spot in the senior squad but turned them down. sure he's one of the highest paid youngsters at the club too hopefully we can turn this into a positive for us with a sell on clause or help bargain for players they want rid of.

Mike / Ed

Im reading WH have decided to keep Arnie for the rest of the season, is there any news on this? as I find it strange they would keep him, he always looks like his got the hump even when scoring so I would hate to imagine how it looks if this does not go through in Jan.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 17 Jan 2019 14:25:11
ITS simply the fact that Shanghai havnt risen to the price WH want if they do he can go, WH are quite rightly looking to not get caught between two stools with a last ditch #shanghai bid end of month. Giving the club no time to replace him. IRONMIKE.



16 Jan 2019 09:40:40
Mike / Ed

Do you know what the situation is with Andy Carroll?

His contract is up at the end of the season and although I read AC said that he is playing for a new contract, due to the amount of games his not been available over the 4/ 5 years or so I would imagine his got as much chance of getting a new contract as Theresa May being hailed by Parliament as the best negotiator since slice bread

With Arnie and possibly Hernandez on there way it does leave us very light up top, but the question is do we let Carroll go on a free or do we try and get what ever we can for him to recoup what we can.

The DGs could offer him a very small basic and a pay as you play offer, but I doubt if AC would accept this as he will be a free agent and some silly team will offer him a decent signing on fee as well as wages.

Just wondered if any news on DG opinion on this.

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - If WH could strike a deal for a new contract based on availability plus a smaller basic it might suit everyone.}

1.) 16 Jan 2019 10:08:43
Thanks Ed

But even a smaller basic has to surely be in the region of £20k a week than maybe £70k every time he plays or available to play.

There is no doubt if he would have stayed fit he would have been offered a new contract ages ago, but the fact is he never is fit for a length of time

Even if we did offer him a smaller basic, he knows the fact come the summer he can get a hefty signing on fee plus a basic with another club.

I would have thought this conversation may have taken place as asking Carroll would he take a small basic and pay as you play so to speak, if it has not taken place to see what his thoughts are if WH wanted to go down that route than he has to be sold to get as much back as possible as the Jan window is nearly over.

Thank you for your reply Ed.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 11:33:45
Think you have covered all the opti9ns involved. IRONMIKE.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 14:03:46
Pay u play deal only.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 14:31:48
No deal, i don't think he fits MP style of play. Not technically good enough with the ball on the floor.
Look at the strikers we are linked with, all have great technical ability with the ball on the floor, and then have a second attribute of either being strong in the air (Gomez) or pace (Piatek, Martinez, Werner)
Carroll's WHU days are over either now, or when his contract ends in summer.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 16:48:46
I think Carroll gives us something different and to be fair has turned games in our favour. I wouldn’t be averse to him getting a pay for play contract. on another matter Boyata from Celtic is out of contract in the Summer, does anyone think he would be useful cover whist Balbuena is out?



03 Jan 2019 08:23:47
Its all still a working progress with MP in my opinion, again iffy at the back on corners we did miss the General but we need to be able to cope as he will not play every game in a season.

Once again Arnie came to the rescue but can't help thinking that he does deflect others from being a little more creative as we showed when he was injured,

Chelsea are crying out for a Arnie player and if a £60m bid came in would WH baulk at that?, bearing in mind we scored plenty of goals when he was injured.

Id take £30m plus Loftus Cheek any day, the best we can hope for this season is 7th but realistically we will prob finish 9th - 12th and if all reports are correct Arnie will leave in the summer so why not try get in Loftus Cheek as a part deal with Arnie if Chelsea were interested, and start to build now

As I said many times this is a free season for MP, to get his style of play in and personal, next season I do expect to be challenging for Europe as that should be realistic goal with the funds available to him.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 03 Jan 2019 23:53:29
Hi Warrington,

Happy New Year mate! I think your comments make total sense and are far from madness. There is no doubt that Arnie is a great player but fotball is a strange game and sometimes players like him and Payet supress the talents of others. Whilst he was out injured Anderson flourished and finding the back of the net was not exactly difficult for us as a team.

I’d also take £30m and Loftus-Cheek if the deal could be made. I live in Cheshire surrounded by Stoke fans and a lot of them say that once Arnie’s heads turned it stays turned.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 07:44:51
Dabbler/ Warrington, yes I totally agree with your comments on Arnie👍 I have said previously when I read his brother/ agent comments about he should not be playing for a club in the relegation zone and 29 was a good age to move on (obviously about £££) etc etc, that I will now be glad to see the back of him! Whilst he was injured others seem to flourish without him there, it was as if they were playing without fear, instead of having to let Arnie dictate play. IMO he is now too big for his boots, he thinks he is bigger than the club! Yes he was probably the one whose goals kept us in the Premiership, but it’s also about the team, no player is indispensable!

3.) 04 Jan 2019 08:38:18
Have said the same myself. If he wants to go and we can get a big fee, let him go. Not sure why Chelsea would take him having signed Pusilic for end of season.
I agree with the comments, reckon he has one big move left and don't blame him if he goes, has been professional about it (unlike the snake) and did keep us up, good luck to him.

4.) 04 Jan 2019 15:20:09
Why would we get LC plus 30? Chelsea would want at least 60 for him in today's market.

In all honesty. I would just do a straight swap. Get rid of Carroll and go for a new younger striker.

5.) 05 Jan 2019 23:12:47
I'd be staggered if any of the top sides would pay anything close too what is being milled around the most I can see anybody paying Is 25 million at the most and if he wants guaranteed 1st team football then he needs to stay put but if he wants more money and sit on the bench and pick up medals and the odd trophy here and there then Chelsea or UTD are his club as LIVERPOOL AND CITY are a million miles away from needing him but he strikes me as a player that wouldn't be happy sitting on the bench but we will see if he's still at west ham come the summer I'd be truly amazed and he might just use today kickstart his move. COYI.



17 Dec 2018 10:59:55
Well done Robert Snodgrass, after all the stick he got last season he has come back and fought for his place and his excelling, he wants to play and his desire to do that has made him a regular, well done for his attitude.

I'm going to post 2 statements:

1. WILSHIRE'S ability undeniable.

2. WHILSHIRE'S injury record unprintable. COYI.



03 Dec 2018 10:28:22
Anderson was class on Saturday, Henradez shows what he can do with the service given he could have had 4.

If Arnie wants to go and I heard Chelsea are interested, could we maybe do a deal for maybe Loftus Cheek, I think Loftus Cheek given continues playing time would be awesome for us, sitting in front of Declan, we talk about a spine well

Fabinski ( Very Reliable)
Diop ( 21 years Old)
Rice ( 19 years Old
Loftus Cheek ( 22 years old)

IMO that would be an absolute start of moving us forward.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 03 Dec 2018 12:37:22
Loftus is a great player and I would love for him to come to us. Regards Arnie though, he will only go if he gets 20+ goals for us this season, which then lays proof to a CL team that he is worth the money at his age.

This weekend was a classic example of why his (or his brothers) push for a BIG salary or Champs League team is premature. A top performer would have had converted at LEAST one vs Newcastle. He hasn't been prolific this season, and it is not as if he has lacked opportunities this year. I understand his injuries may have hindered him a little this season, but they are done now and I hope he really starts to hit the net from now until Xmas.

I love Arnie and think he is one of the best in the league ATM, he ALWAYS creates havoc and must be a nightmare for defenders, but CL teams want consistent reliability over a whole season, unless he is to be a backup. Him, Chica and Anderson looked dangerous on Sat though. Good to see JW get an assist as well.

2.) 04 Dec 2018 08:41:28
Hi Nick

I think Man U would snap up Arnie at this moment in time, they need some energy up front, concerning JW very generous with the assist, Anderson was the only pass on and did the rest. still it counts as an assist :)

Hi Mercerl

Agreed everything you said including you can dream bit :)

If young Dec stayed at the club for the rest of his career and say he played an average of 32 Prem games a season ( that's a push with injury and suspension) and a average of 6 FA and League Cup combined, that would total 38 games per season, if you wanted to throw for argument sake a extra 5 for Europe in the future at a max he plays 44 games a season, ( That is far to many on average but let's just say)

He would need to play at the club for around 18 seasons taking him up to 38 to hit even 792 games, the above figures are really pushing it so it would be a case he needs to play until his 40 plus minimum.

Its not going to happen, and i'm so bored at work I just thought i'd mention it :)

Mike I don't get your latest post on WH stance on Arnie, on 3 points

Firstly if they are willing to accept a little bit under what was offered why didn't they just sell him in Jan?

Secondly why on earth let the brother know what they would accept in money wise?, if he came back and bangs in the goals some team somewhere may offer more than the £35m

Thirdly, why tell the brother now?, Arnie can throw more toys out the pram than Hamelys in London, surely if he knows we don't want him he will sulk and not give his best especially if we gave him an improved contract in Jan, and going back to my first point why did they not just get rid?

Sorry I may be missing something but I just don't get it.

Goodness Mike, what I have read about him Juve, Real and Man u are looking at around £105m, it looks like he is the next Pele Cruyff, Maradona, Ronaldo, Messi and George Parris rolled into one.

I think WH response after the phone call to Benfica would have been. "OK, no need to swear we were only asking. thanks bye!

{Ed002's Note - I would love to hear more about this "phone call" from West Ham given what Cordeiro has said.}

I posted a list of Jack Wiltshire injuries I think last Jan when I think we were interested, it showed the last 9 years of his career which was unbelievable reading his injury list.

Although I think Mike said on here that we had independent medical people assess his fitness, it one of those where you just have to leave alone due to his previous record. A fit JW would be an asset to any team but unfortunately for him and us i'm afraid his whole career will be lighted by injury. I would approach him and ask him how much he would take just to leave so he can go on a free, we just can't have AC on the books again, not only its a waste of money but a waste of a squad place.

Cheers Mike, it may also bring the Prem back in line where as it may make it more competitive, rather than the usual suspects. It will also make clubs look nearer to home for players rather than go and buy some oversea player, hence scout properly in the UK which in my view seems to have been ignored

I personally welcome all of this, it gives our own HG a chance, plus hopefully eridcate lazy journeyman from abroad earning what HG can get.

Whats not to like about it? . Anyone have a different view?

Mike if you could just to clear up can you answer the following please

1)How many HG players are required now in a squad, and does that only cover English players Not Scotland, Wales NI or ROI as HG?

2)In a squad does that mean a squad named for the match as in the new rules you will have to have 12/ 13 HG either playing or available for substitution

3) When do these new rules kick in?

4) Will they be a loop hole that the likes of Man C, etc will be able to exploit or will this be absolutely concrete

5) Will these new rules apply to the Championship, Leagues 1,2, or just Prem teams,

Apologies if this is common knowledge but just wanted clarification what these new rules will mean, especially the impact it may have on the so called bigger teams

Thank you.

To right total legend, I think USA TV done a special on him at 40 odd as he was so fit

It would be great if Redknapp was there. would love to see BB nut him after he stretched the truth in his book about him.
