This is murder, I want some concrete news, all the outlets are saying this and that, and half of me is thinking is all trash or the board are putting this out.

Will we up the bid of Dendonker?

Are they really after Silmov, if so will he take a medical in Russia?

What about Amadou see palace have offered £16m?

Now reading Hugil from Preston?

and about a trillion others being floated, Moyes said he hopes to get 2 in, if that true which 2?

Gut feeling Seymour, nothing will happen mate.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 15:03:39
Hugil from preston is the most concerning news I have heard all day.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 15:24:15
Hugill on his way for a medical apparently?

4.) 31 Jan 2018 15:28:53
Excellent preparing for life as a mid table championship team then? I mean why would the board feel hugill is the answer? Surely an international player who actually scores goals is less of a gamble than a player who has 18 goals in 87 games.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 15:29:52
Well, that's Moyes for you.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 15:30:24
No, this has to be a joke?

7.) 31 Jan 2018 15:38:46
Probably why we haven't heard from Ironmike, he can't bring himself to tell us we are spending 10million on Hugill. But hey at least it isn't a loan haha. What is more crazy is our board didn't want to sign Chris Woods because he wasn't good enough and he cost what? 15m? He was a 1 in 2 striker but they do want to sign someone who is a 1 in 4/ 5.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 17:18:31
The owners will be selling us magic beans next, because we bought everything else from them.



31 Jan 2018 11:32:54
Help!, Have I missed something?

Ayew is expected to leave today for £18m, have we a striker lined up taking a medical?

Why would we sell Ayew without replacing, surely he could stay until the summer where we still would receive £18m.

If no striker is lined up why on earth would we sell considering our injuries to front players, his not been great nor bad and we may need him at some point, I don't get it!

Warrington Seymour

1.) 31 Jan 2018 12:14:33
Mike please tell us some good news today, we will take almost anyone (not carlton cole or the other ayew though) - guy.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 12:23:15
nothing wrong with carlton cole.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 12:29:18
Its looking bleak guys n gals. Everybody is trying to do the same thing today. I still say Swap Kouyate with Fiorentina for Babacar LOL. Left it too late me thinks but hope springs eternal. We may still get SMOLOV, DENDONCKER ETC.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 12:38:51
Surely Smolov not going to happen. 5 to 6 hr flight from Russia. Then a medical to sort.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 13:08:06
Can’t see it phil . It’s all getting to late now ( and not sure if West Ham United where fully committed or not to these players, I’m thinking not )



30 Jan 2018 08:42:19
2 days to go and 29 gone and we have 1 addition to the squad. i'm not going to go down the usual deja vu route as plenty other others have made things clear on this of our failure in the windoew again

I am so worried that for what ever reasons we still have not acquired a DM which we were all screaming out for when the window began. The injuries have been unfortunate but that the way it goes and it happens,

Teams from 9th downwards ( yes including Everton as big Scam is proving his great of getting out of the mire but also just as great of dipping back in it ) all have a equal chance of finishing in the bottom 3.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:24:50
A board that has made panic signings before looks set to do so again, poor planning leads to over paying for mediocrity (schneirderlin)

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:36:12
Schneiderlin would be an upgrade on what we have but he isn't the answer long term.

Why do we keep buying players over 27 too? We need young players that are hungry, that want to improve. That way when they want to leave we make a profit and buy the next up and coming talent to replace. Doing it the way we do is farcical.

Dendocker should be snapped up for this exact reason. The same with Maddison.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 11:55:04
I think the main problem is that the owners have no footballing heritage/ contacts and rely solely on agents or Manager's contacts.
We require a Director of Football ASAP - I do not mind the double Ds wanting value for money, more mind that they keep getting ripped off.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 12:27:59
Schneiderlin won't be joining 100%.

5.) 30 Jan 2018 13:08:12
Am not sure that anyone will be joining at this rate unless we can get a really cheap loan deal. Anyone got their boots at home :-)
This should all have been done already in the past 4 weeks and now Watford, WBA to name but a few are making moves on players we were apparently linked with, the latest I hear is Shcurrle who Watford and WBA want.

6.) 30 Jan 2018 18:20:10
Who are the double Ds - Karen Brady? Oh the owners, they are meant to run the club are they not. How did they become millionaires, surely by making decisions. Like bilic was blamed for not fancying players, when we lost out on them, now Moyes does not fancy these expensive players.



26 Jan 2018 13:01:08
ssn have reported Newcastle have said Shelvey not for sale. more porkies or true? as I thought they were open to the deal once they found a replacement.

I like Shelvey, thought he would have sat well in the holding role and can certainly pass a ball and has a bit of agression.

Warrington Seymour



24 Jan 2018 08:22:07
sorry Mike this has been answered about Shelvey.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 24 Jan 2018 09:38:10
How much are we likely to get from players we sell? I reckon £18m for Reece Oxford (Figure being banded about) another £16m for Ayew, maybe £10m for Sakho and £16m for Hernandez totalling £60m and whatever the board are willing to invest so that's probably £60m and 50p :-) I read that Moyes is not convinced over Ruiz, Lots of Interest now in Clement Grenier when we had already supposedly offered him a 3 year deal, Dendoncker will only be sold for a huge fee, JOAO MARIO (well, I'm not sure how much more talking there can be)

2.) 24 Jan 2018 10:22:57
Hi Phil

Same old same old, its the 24th the window has been open 3 weeks, we have 1 week left and the usual crap policy in transfers. I know everyone points out transfer are complex and take time but come on. its the same every window.

We have no creativity now Arnie and Lanzini are out, we are going into a massive period, we have Palace Watford Brighton and Swansea in our next 5 Prem fixtures, and before you know it we could be in the bottom 3.

Although we can defend I am really worried where our creativity will come from before Lanzini Arnie, Antonio return which hopefully a few weeks for the latter two.

Hernandez will get his game time, but he needs IMO to be played as a 2 up front as his wasted trying to play the lone striker, and if Moyes does go down that route who will supply any kind of chance for him going forward?

The injuries have happened at a good time so to speak ( no good time for injuries) as we can try dip in the market to cover, but the way things are looking we maybe getting a couple of Mids and not heard of any attacking players in the window. All very worrying from my point of view.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 10:24:16
this is it phil I can't see us getting a striker in now maybe 1 in 1 out potentially 2 if they can I think we will keep hernandez. Mario will wait and see so much talk gets silly shelve again all talk but why would benitez want to sell and have no replacement also why mike Ashley isn't spending either. think its best to just wait and see what happens there's a week left to go and nothing has been confirmed so far.

4.) 24 Jan 2018 10:59:12
The games against Palace, Watford, Brighton and Swansea is our season really, we win those we stay up (with a couple of draws as well), the only way to win those games is to strengthen the squad because with the fit players we have at our disposal I can't see winning those games?

5.) 24 Jan 2018 15:04:28
Tell you what we haven't heard yet wait for it the 32 year old washed up use to be a good player on 140,000 a week four years ago who we are looking to loan because nobody else wants wait for it it's coming trust me. COYI.

Even the paper have picked up on Moyes unlikely to continue after the window, so much for him clearing out the deadwood to build again in the summer if we stay up.

I know the talk is him being disappointed in the window but surely that can't be the sole reason, could it?

So it may be a case of hear we go again, a new manager with transfers probably different to Moyes, and the merry go round of Sullivan fumbling about in the market, please please I can't go through all this BS again from the board.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 06 Feb 2018 10:50:25
What have I been saying all along? Don't count on Moyes being here after the end of his contract, up or down.



05 Feb 2018 15:03:07
Eds or Ironmike. just thinking out loud, how much would the club lose in value if they were to drop out the Prem?

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - Effectively it wouldn't really as it would not be for sale. If after a number of years and WHU were still in the lower leagues when it could be easily sold it would be dependent on the interim growth in prices which cannot be calculated. In terms of Forbes and others valuations they are of no consequence.}

Oh well another month wasted in anticipation of moving forward. Thanks so much ironmike for your info as usual always bang on, and to all that post on a regular bases its been fun shame these pair of tossers who run out club ruin it.

No more ley way with me now with them, I have tried to look at things from their point of view, I really wanted tbem to be naive in the transfer market why deals were not going through as WH owners I expect them to be loyal to the club and be honest with us who pay rubbish loads to follow them, but my conclusion is there a pair of manipulate business tossers who have the art of lying and taking us all for idiots to enhance thier wealth, along with that dodgy skeleton in cupboard Brady, oh well roll on tbe Summer window 😀.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 01 Feb 2018 04:43:17
Agree with you WS. In May 2008 Gold and Sullivan reportedly said they would quit Birmingham after fans turned on them chanting “board out”. They said they could see hatred in the fans eyes. They also said the Birmingham fans didn’t know anything about business and football. Look what happened to Birmingham, so neither did they.
Their mishandling of that club is being replicated at whu. My advice, start protesting and get rid of them before we go the same way.
I’ve supported west ham for 60 years and am fed up with how those tight wads disrespect us fans.
Anybody disagree? I don’t care. Protest now and get rid of them.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 09:00:16
Weststand. It wasn’t DGS who ruined Birmingham City to be fair. It was the bloke they sold it to. Can’t remember his name but I think he was from China and was arrested in China for fraud or something. I can’t recall the details.
However, you’re right that these two slippery bastards are milking and ruining our club. I don’t want a multi billionaire investor. I want them to sell the club to a person who loves football and tradition, cares for the fans and the club and is honest from start to finish. To me it’s not about winning the league or going into champions league, it’s about being proud to be a West Ham fan and I’m finding that difficult lately.

Hi Stubbo

In vision do you mean a certain continuous style how the team plays no matter what Manager is in.

Hi Phil, funny you should say that as I originally typed £60m plus, but having thought about it due to his changeable attitude and although his showing what he can do when happy, I just wonder if something does not go his way he could be a negative impact in the dressing room. obviously I have no knowledge but just get the feeling.

If someone big came in at £40m, although as you say very cheap in today's inflated market, it would depend on his attitude to what club it is, and if he wanted to go, I fear he would do anything to get his wish, so as I put £40m plus as a price which would suit all in the long run if he threw his toys out the pram as I spose we still get a profit. but as you rightly say he is worth a lot more in todays market.

I also agree with Phil, but the problem I see comes down to the usual for Managers is time. Looking at Big Scam and Slav they only get 2 years at a time, which is fine but will Moyes want a little more commitment than that to mould and build a side?, both sides of the coin have a good argument.

We need to stabilise in all areas, from the board, Manager, team players and also the fans. Continuity IMO is the base of success, if we can get some kind of harmony between the areas it a start.

I was very sceptical of Moyes when appointed, but give him his due, he has to an extent managed to steer us into calmer waters, I think he should be given a 3 year deal and given the wheel to the ship, the board ( as reported) need to step back and trust his judgement and basically let him get on with it. if they can't do that, I think Moyes may just leave and take the Scotland job. and once again we will be set adrift.

Also I have a niggle that if Moyes did take the job full time, we all know he can be somewhat negative in the style of play. Big Scam is not dissimilar IMO, and look at the stick he got.

We need to realise where we are as a club, the heady heights of the last season at Upton maybe fooled us ( including DGS) we were ready for the next level. basically we are NOT. we need to start building the foundations properly and think Moyes is the man to do this.

A blessing for me that Caroll has hopefully played his last game for the club and not confusing Moyes judgement to have him starting instead of Hernandez,

In Hernandez, Marko, Lanzini, Antonio, and Mario we do have a exciting players that all can score, if DM can balance the team to be strong defensively but dynamic when going forward we will get to where we want sooner rather than later.

I do worry marko may have a great rest of season and than as usual the Big Boys come in sniffing, it will be interesting to see his attitude of commitment if he gets a chance to go somewhere bigger., if they get an offer for him for £40m plus ( which I think is a possibility if he continues to play as he is) I spose would suit both parties and I can't see us keeping hold of him as his desire to go up another level.

Anyway all if and buts, let get safe and we can all evaluate and see what will happen in the summer.

Hi Dabber welcome to the debate

The point about not spending money in Jan for fear of going down is noted. but would that be not the reason to spend money on positions we desperately needed to give us a greater chance of not going down, take Dendoncker for example £20m, even if he turned out absolutely crap i'm sure we would off load for something near that, his 22 a Belguim International and if he did get a game in the World Cup and done well maybe even make a profit, so the initials outlays in realty worse case scenario is we may have lost a few mill.

Your right these two are proven business men. BUT not in football, its a completely different than selling smut. When you say business as a whole? . so do you mean if we were in championship and and making £5m profit a year that's OK? . as its good business!

The need to stop lying hire a competent Director of Football and stay in the back ground and run the club, there is enough money in the Prem and our ground for them to make a profit and still enhance the club, by alienating a decent income source ( fans gate money) is really not great business IMO.

Hi Phil

I think quite a few of us have been banging on about a DOF for quite a while as its clear Sullivan is as much use as a Chocolate Teapot in the window.

The problem I see is he still thinks he is negotiating selling bulk top shelf mags to the local newsagent and does not understand that clubs can sell else where if not to WH, so when a player is said to be worth £10m no point going in at £9.99p to start the bidding, its not an Egyptian Suk!

Also I Honesty do not think he likes to trust anyone with any financial outlay, such as transfers as his controlled business mind would be " I could have done better" . but that the problem, why we never get much done because his always after a bargain, This will not change until he goes and unfortunately the way it is. even if he did appoint a DOF I guarantee he would still want to control everything .

Unfortunately mate until he sells or pops his clogs what ever comes first were stuck with all this crap, As he seems like a pigheaded, I know best kind of person, even the planned protests will only make him dig his heels in deeper I feel, he will go when his ready to go and not before I fear.

Hi Chelmsford, for me personally the point is the bigger picture, how many windows do we have to go through with the same old crap, IMO Moyes will leave in the summer regardless because of the way the board act in windows and maybe not keeping there word.

Another Manager will come in probably from abroad and someone desperate to Manage in the Prem, and the cycle starts again.

The board need to realise the contempt of a lot of fans is not a fad and will not go away unless they sell or change how they deal with things. There is enough room to keep the fans happy with signings and to make a profit for themselves, we all know there are keeping finances tight for their own gains for when there ready to sell, the problem is the greed in all of this,

They can make a healthy living running the club and gradually build and keep the fans happy at the same time, for such wealthy business men it should not be rocket science to balance out, but I just think they are a pair of greedy people who have no idea how to manage a football club, i'm sure they look at things as us being punters ( customers as they call us is a nicer word) and not fans.

Grab what you can when you can, spend the minimum in outlay as possible and sell at the right time for shed loads, great as a business plan. but not the way a club should be run, although football now days is a big business, it should also be a passion for the owners not just the fans.

I personally hate the way football is governed by how much money is involved, once a working mans sport has been taken over by corporate and when it implodes which I think eventually it will a lot of clubs may no longer be around as the investors will find some other toy to play with!

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?
