What's the situation on Bernard? Have we quietened our interest on incomings until we get some outgoings through the door.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 18:28:16
No situation at present being s free agent Bernard can afford to let the window close and then see if anybody needs him he can sign for anybody anytime anywhere at this time doesn’t look like his demands are being met anywhere. IRONMIKE.

YARMOLENKO CONFIRMED! official West Ham Instagram page has released his intro video. Great signing to add to an already great transfer window IMO 👏👏👏.

I've seen on social media that diop has passed a medical at WH and is ready to sign a 5 year deal. How accurate is this?


1.) 19 Jun 2018 13:31:14
Second part of medical was due to finish at 12 noon the deal is agreed apparently there’s a couple of bits on the players portion so it’s close to use that phrase ——honesty after the Andersen business when hands where shaken then fall out followed I get nervous to say anything because the truth is until it’s signed it means nothing IRONMIKE.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 13:43:10
Yeah until they release a picture of him in a shirt of the website haha.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 15:50:24
Until I see him in a West Ham shirt, running on to the field in a competitive match, I won’t believe it’s done.



12 Jun 2018 21:56:21
So I'm reading that Fabianski is as good as a done deal with a fee and terms agreed. Marlon is 'very close' to signing according to Spanish news outlets for 15-18m Euros (plus whatever goes to Nice I guess) and Pastore is a possibility again.

How accurate are these reports? Can we expect any signings before world cup starts Thursday or just after?


1.) 13 Jun 2018 09:57:35
Unless pastore drops his wage demand he won't be coming to west ham because other players will also there wages raised.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 10:53:45
Pastore is NOT in the running at all he would need to take a 50k a week wage drop to join WH although his agent is advising him to do it Fabianski is agreed for all intents and purposes Mawson is NOT agreed Andersen is being talked over as we speak Marlon something else has now cropped up and this is not as close that is the current situation WH are looking at a many players IRONMIKE.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 13:38:14
Many players mike is that so when we don’t get many signings we can be given the same bulsh@t by Sullivan that look we tried but couldn’t get any over the line or they didn’t want to come like what usually happens!

4.) 13 Jun 2018 16:34:17
No I cannot agree with you I personally have never seen WH after as many players with serious intentions doesn’t mean we will get them of course but they are really having a go. IRONMIKE.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 23:35:58
Hu DIGGYDEE I don't think SANTOS is on our wishlist I think that's been and gone I might be wrong but I think I'm right am I MIKE?



17 Aug 2017 12:19:14
Any news on the Carvalho deal? Have Sporting made any signal whether they'll take it or leave it?

What is the situation with whilsheres medical? Has he passed it? Is he close to signing?


1.) 06 Jul 2018 18:34:20
Hi digger WH are putting Wilshire through an exhaustive medical with his record wouldn’t you? All our players are insured and WH have been told what standard to go to as extras tests are required in the circumstances this is not at all unreasonable should all be well his case will carry an extra excess anyway be patient. IRONMIKE.

2.) 07 Jul 2018 18:12:21
Rumour has it he's passed the medical and it's I's and t's to be finalised.



19 Jun 2018 21:51:47
Wilshire is officially leaving arsenal. Will we see him in an WH shirt next season? This boosts our chances of signing him now right? Who else is interested in his signature?


1.) 19 Jun 2018 22:12:28
We have to snap him up. No doubt about it.



14 Jun 2018 14:39:57
@Ironmike or anyone else who might know. This £75 mil that's been touted as our budget for this window, is this just up front money or does that include future installment fees and add ons?

If we sign Anderson for £30m-ish mil and a CB (diop or Mawson etc) for £20-25 mil that leaves us £20mil left in the kitty. If the total costs of transfera are deducted from the budget we really don't have much to play with.

We still need a defensive midfielder, another creative midfielder, arguably a pacy winger, potentially 2 goalkeepers if Adrian leaves (Fabianski is lined up) and any other positions that MP feels need strengthening or replacing for outgoings.

OK loans and free transfers may help a bit (Diaz and Wilshire potentially) but still an awful lot to do with what's remaining. Decent players aren't easy to come by at bargain prices these days, if you want it you got to pay. Rome wasn't built in a day I guess, will the squad be a 2-3 year project to create?


1.) 14 Jun 2018 16:07:24
Congratulations you are the first to realise that transfers in and out are both complicated and expensive Ignore completely the 75m sum we will spend a lot more on the Surface especially with the on costs BUT a lot of deals are by instalments each deal being different it is hoped by the end of trading costs might be close to 75m after sales I hope you get the picture. IRONMIKE.

2.) 15 Jun 2018 12:47:24
that and the fact free transers aren't actually free as there will always be a signing on fee which has to come out of the budget too.



19 May 2018 13:43:14
Just read the ginger Pele found out he isn't getting a new contract via email, with no testimonials or send off of any kind. Board has treated him like a piece of rubbish on the bottom of their shoe after everything he's given to this club. We love him and he deserves so much more.


1.) 19 May 2018 14:23:29
WHO started this silly nonsense rumour, not like that at all give it a break IRONMIKE.

2.) 19 May 2018 15:52:49
Mile I heard it on Talksport this morning by Tony Cadcarino - if it isn't correct what is because lots of press now reporting as well.

3.) 19 May 2018 17:01:57
C&h have got a piece on this ( mike might know if it’s accurate ) but as always it’s never clear cut and there is allways more to it, the full facts ( rights and indeed wrongs ) not sure have been declared . On ginge I would add that the new manager could do great things with the fan base by taking him back on board .

All I'd say is this may be Marega's last chance to play in the prem. At 28 and without much other interest from other clubs his time is running out to play in biggest league in the world. I don't condone how he might be going about it but I can understand the desire to push it through. The Portuguese league is a bit pony, let's be honest, so personally if I had a shot to play in the prem, on the big stage, with the best players and the big wages I'd do anything to get the deal o wrote the line.

I hope Toni Martinez gets a run at a first team spot. I heard he was kept with the first team for the pre season instead of the U23s. Had a fantastic season with the youth team last year so I think he deserves his shot.

Bill I totally agree. We do effectively have a whole new team.

I hope MP can get all the new boys clicking quickly. Traditionally adding a lot of players to a squad can disrupt the chemistry. I think this might have been what happened to Everton last season.

We do have a long time to the start of the season though, I can't actually believe we got all these over the line so quickly and we didn't give up with Anderson like we have done with so many other potential marquee signings in the past.

What a time to be a hammer ⚒️.

One player I'd love to see come WH on the right wing would be Pione Sisto at Celta Vigo. The lad is class and could be the next Sadio Mane in the prem in my opinion.

Not sure we could get him this transfer window though as he only moved last year, but worth enquiring about at least or tapping up his agent to see if he'd consider a move.

Basically a club is not allowed to a loss of 30m or more over a 3 year period. Current FFP period doesn't come under review until the end of the 18-19 season so club's have until the end of next season to sort their books out or face sanctions such as being barred from European competition or transfer embargoes.

So in PSG's case 1) they might not even be running at a loss since they are a huge club and 2) even if they currently were they have plenty of time to sell players to exit the freshold for FFP sanctions.

For West Ham the principles are the same. We can spend as much as we won't as long as we aren't in the red come the end of next season.

Hope this helps.

Apparently this rumour is fictious and we can still expect Lanzini to start this weekend. Source of the rumour is unreliable.
