Mike. any truth in quina being sold next month?


1.) 17 Dec 2017 13:56:38
Hi dave I personally think Unlikely DGS look as if they are going to back Moyes requests and thoughts at both ins and outs, , Moyes is VERY pally with Tony Henry, and Henry thinks he has been put down over WH players and form previous to Moyes appointment;t, SO they are really scrutinising the squad. No question some are going to leave Now and in the summer ( Should we be safe ) ) Moyes is not particular about superstars he has a work ethic, and believes most of our squad ARE well up to the job But some are not , the players he wants may surprise a lot of our fans, but he doesn’t want prima donnas or spectacular signings, IRONMIKE.

So, harry arter ish players?

3.) 17 Dec 2017 15:18:02
HES on top of the wanted list HOWEVER, will Bournemouth sell a very useful player in the winter and also to a. Club they may consider to be a relegation competitor? WH first enquiry only wasn’t well received IRONMIKE.

4.) 17 Dec 2017 16:32:50
A bit underwhelming, but could be what we need. Whos most likely to leave? Anyone we could get a decent fee for?

5.) 17 Dec 2017 20:36:37
I think sakho will leave. Personally I'd like caroll to go and for us to give Martinez a chance.

6.) 18 Dec 2017 11:59:46
If the sums going around regarding ARTER are true Mike then CARVALHO for another ten mill it's a no brained I know they play in different roles I don't think ARTER would improve our squad as we have players already at his ability we have to IMPROVE our squad not add to it with mediocre players in my opinion what's your view on ARTER Mike thanks mate. COYI.



10 Aug 2017 18:43:37
Mike, are wh after any cb at this time?


1.) 10 Aug 2017 19:11:39
Hey Mike,

Aside from Carvalho how many more signings do you see us going after? Would be nice to get another central defender before the window closes.



22 Jul 2017 16:05:31
Of we sign the players we are supposedly ready to sign. what do you think should be a realistic position to finish? I was thinking 10th. 9th or 8th.


1.) 22 Jul 2017 16:54:41
Single fidget finish be where we should be aiming.



30 May 2017 08:37:33
You mentioned that there was a medical today. any idea who iy actually is?




26 May 2017 21:14:45
One for Phil. braithwaite available for about 8mil. let's not get ahead of ourselves on the iheanacho saga. this is west ham after all.


1.) 27 May 2017 11:16:11
He'd be a good signing for that price got pace and can finish.

2.) 27 May 2017 11:51:02
Dont say that to phil he won't stop haha.

3.) 27 May 2017 13:07:24
Id take him for 8 mil. i'd expect that Phil would drive and pick him up lol.

Should we go for Wenger? Lol.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 14:04:21
of all the times for him to retire dave just before we are due to play them they are going to fight like mad for him till the end of season.

2.) 22 Apr 2018 09:04:05
I could not see Wenger accepting any offer from our lot even if it was offered, for obvious reasons! Think some fans have very short memories, to classy a manager to be associated with us unless he felt he wanted to prove a point? I wonder how our fans would feel if there was a rumour it was possible? In the Mail today it said if Stoke are relegated Moyes may offer £40m for Allen and Buckland, would prefer if that may possible to get a couple from Stoke I personally would prefer Shaqiri and Allen. But no good dabbling in fiction about what and if we could get whoever, we all differ in our opinions! We will get who we get, hopefully we will survive the Premiership or we will be looking at who the Orient or Dagenham and Redbridge want to sell! We need to go on the offensive at Arsenal today, they will be thinking of the Athletico game on Thursday hopefully, but we are desperate to seal our survival, not sure if Wenger’s news will spur them on, if so you could ask why didn’t they put in extra effort before to to get the anti Wenger mob off his back! Football fans bring out the worst of some people’s character, you need skin of a bloody Rhino like Sam Allardyce! They have been spoilt for to long with success, breeds contempt for minor failings, there is only 1 trophy or title for each team in football, so get over it you can’t win them all, be careful what you wish for your team, the grass often looks greener elsewhere, but doesn’t always turn out to be!

That to me wasn't a championship performance. That looked more like a league 1 performance. Sloppy defending. Poor passing. Just booting the ball out. No drive. No passion. I fear we will be in the championship next year. We say we are lucky as they're are worse teams that is. like palace and Swansea. well they are now winning and realistically who is worse? West Bromwich? Maybe - not sure. Huddersfield? Well at least they have some passion.

Swansea just seemed to be up for it. they wanted to win. They wanted to score and tackle. They might aswell just stayed at home.

It's clear that our defense is so weak. We just leak to many goals. To concede 3/ 4 goals continuously won't keep you in this league and it's only a matter of time before we drop down. If it's not this season's it will be next as let's be realistic. dgs won't splash the cash this summer. We all have high hopes every year and nothing happens. I guarantee that this summer will be. we tried. we pondered and will end up with loan signings over the age of 32.

We have to be careful. Look at Sunderland. leaked goals. didn't invest properly. now look where they are.

I really don't think the futures bright but definitely bleak.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 10:46:25
Bleak indeed and I am sick and tired of hearing what dgs are PLANNING to do for this club. All they can EVER do is plan, mull ponder and consider. Again and again we go over the same issues only for us to win a couple of games and everything is alright again. Fact is the THEY HAD the chance to invest in January and because they were not willing to meet asking prices we did nothing. Defence is now desperately short and we are in deep poo if Swansea can beat us that easily.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 15:22:24
In all fairness to dgs. the one thing they will do is bleed us dry.

It's only a matter of time before we get relegated.

3.) 05 Mar 2018 09:04:55
And they will one way or another recoup a big fat profit.



14 Jan 2018 09:41:00
Just watched the highlights. have to say I'm impressed. Players look like they're fighting and actually putting in a shift. Great to see quality passing between the trio. Little one twos. Great goals from Arnie . He's looking like a proper striker. Didn't rate him at first but glad I'm prov d wrong. I think if we can get a couple of quality signings will help us push on. Fingers crossed.


1.) 15 Jan 2018 13:52:58
website called fullmatchsports Dave I'f you fancied watching the full game. even kouyate was part of abit of one touch football leading up to the goal.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 14:31:19
Unless a sale of AC I would keep him until the season and sell in Aug, the main thing from him is to keep him fit which is in our control so to speak if he stays with us, I would use as a impact player to lessen the risk of injury ready for a sale in the summer

It would be gutting if he was injured playing for someone else and were stuck with him through his recovery, I rather him get injured playing for us and not another team.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 18:49:18
Thanks mate will check it out.



29 Dec 2017 09:10:59
Would you believe it. another player we have been linked to. My days does this feel like de ja vu. Joe Allen now. What's the point in newspapers when they just link is to every player to every team.

Mike. who are our real and realistic targets that Moyes will want to get. Are we looking for cover? 2-3 quality signings, (if possible due to our position)? Or we just looking at a cb.


1.) 29 Dec 2017 10:24:24
Yeh, saw that this morning on BBC gossip text, think he would be a decent signing actually, bit of a terrier in midfield and weighs in with the odd goal, would be well happy with him😄👍Also a couple of younger type Wes Morgan and the big German C. B. who were pivotal in Leicesters title winning season!

2.) 29 Dec 2017 12:32:54
No thanks to Morgan . to slow.

3.) 29 Dec 2017 13:26:55
Being Welsh I've seen a lot of Joe Allen over the years and whilst he's a big improvement over Noble which isn't hard to be honest he's not the player who's going to set the team alite he's just average who has a good 5 or 10 minutes every games.

4.) 29 Dec 2017 14:15:31
Quanty24, what I said was, a Wes Morgan and Robert Huth TYPE of players in defence, they were prepared to put their bodies and heads in the way of everything! Stretch1879 I'll have to take your word on Allen as you've obviously seen a lot more of him than me? But he always looks decent to me, also we are talking about who we may be able to get, I doubt if we're going to have too many players in the queue clammering to join us unfortunately!

5.) 29 Dec 2017 16:31:32
Another comment chelms where youve been misunderstood mate I got what you meant and not being funny anybody would be an improvement on NOBLE AND KOUYATE.



28 Dec 2017 10:24:56
Not sure what the answer is. but why doesn't Hernandez start? He's usually always on the bench so assuming he's not injured. Can anyone shed any light on this?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 12:21:02
Just don't think moyes fancies him didn't at man u can't see how ayew getting in team in front of him.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 17:30:48
Hernandez is the best finisher at the club fact I'd tell you don't need to track back unless the last defender who's shoulder you stay on goes forward which don't happen that's other players jobs, conserve your energy and give him decent services and he will score goals 100% and if MOYES thinks Carroll or AYEW are better than him then it just has to be a personal issue. COYI.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 23:00:37
I'm so baffled by this. He's an amazing striker. The best we have. Wasted talent especially as we play ayew who in my opinion is poor. Hernandez knows where the goal is. Him and Arnie up front would Def get goals. We need some good and clever buys this window. Ward prose would be my choice along with a cb and a rb.

4.) 29 Dec 2017 16:36:03
100% right Dave on all your comments there definitely a c/ b and r/ b is essential. COYI.

Some great players in both teams I would like at West ham. but remember. number 1 why would they want to come to us and 2.we don't buy good players we loan over 32 yr olds.

Championship clubs spend more than us. In a way it would serve dgs right. get relegated and they lose money. I wish they stopped lining their own pockets and focused on us.

Hopefully dgs don't try to control him as I believe he would probably walk away if they did.

Yea I understand totally about the Chelsea comment they could of gone for it. For all we know that point might save us or those 2 points lost might have doomed us. It's difficult to say. What is 100% we can both agree on is our owners are shocking. It's only a matter of time before we go to the championship.

Whilst I disagreed with your tactics against Chelsea I agreed with them regarding Stoke. Moyes mucked up there a bit.

I'm guessing if they did play 2 up top and lost you would of moaned saying the midfield didn't pull their weight. Now go and chill out pal. Far too angry.
