ssn reported yesterday that West Ham United had a bid for Lukaku rejected by Everton a sceptical me thinks that season ticket sales not going too well at the moment.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 11:32:54
My season ticket at the Olympic stadium costs £1,100, I received an email a few weeks ago saying that season ticket prices have been frozen for next year. I am yet to renew, because there is no way I am paying that sort of money to watch us in the championship, which is how we've been playing recently.

If we read the article about Lukaku, it actually says that we've twice been rejected by him because he wants Champions League football, it doesn't actually say we've had a bid rejected recently.

My summer transfer window would be buying proven premiership players and selling the deadwood in our team.

We need a goalkeeper, both Adrian and Randolph have been responsible for costing us points this season. Sign Jack Butland

Sell Masuaku, who has been a poor addition, not bad going forward but defensively is a liability. Sign Kearon Gibbs

Sign Domagoj Vida who is a versatile defender that is solid all across the back four.

We have desperately needed a right back in the last three transfer windows, Sam Byram played well there against Swansea but again yesterday he showed his petulant side getting sent off for a stupid first yellow. Sign Pablo Zabaleta on a free

Let Mark Noble go, he has been a loyal servant to the club and after last season we were all thinking he could potentially get and England call up but this year, he has been sloppy. Play Kouyate and Obiang in central midfield and give Edmilison Fernandes, Reece Oxford and Havard Nordtveit game time.

Sell Feghouli, he has shown some bright sparks this year but frankly he doesn't work hard enough for the team, doesn't score enough, and doesn't create enough. Sign Gylfi Sigurdsson

Sell both Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho, if Sakho could stay fit I'd probably keep him but his injury record is worse than Carrolls over the last two seasons and Valencia just isn't good enough. Sign Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea with an option to buy, he is young, talented and has a point to prove in the premiership. I'd also look to sign Kelechi Iheanacho on loan from Manchester City with an option to buy (although I know this is probably a huge long shot) and Martin Braithwaite as the untested attacking player in the window.

2.) 16 Apr 2017 22:06:04
Agree with everything you said and some great shouts in there. I would keep noble not in first 11 but a leader in the dressing room, signings I would like would be
Oxlain chamberlain

Selling wise were do I start, it would be easier give my line up
Byram reid Gibson Cresswell
Kouatye obiang
Antonio oxlain lanzini


3.) 16 Apr 2017 22:07:07
I would also give bilic the boot and bring in pulis.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 12:30:45
Defoe on a free. No brainer for me.
In even consider demba ba on the cheap.

I know mikes mentioned Mertens and bruma before not sure how likely they would be to sign for us but got to be in the mix both quality.

Definitely need some more pace few others to consider Allan st maximin,
Joshua king.

Obviously need a Rb we've been linked to a few most notably kevin malcuit.

CBs to consider maguire Gibson smalling sakho.

I do like rb leipzigs transfer strategy of signing lots of promising young players seems to have worked very well for them. Naby keita and Emil forsberg are both quality they also beat a lot of English teams to oliver burke.

5.) 17 Apr 2017 12:41:14
I do like pickford aswell been awhile since we've splashed out on a keeper fits the bill nicely young English and quality.

6.) 17 Apr 2017 15:01:02
Interesting stat with regards to getting rid of noble last time we won a game without him was 847 days ago.

7.) 17 Apr 2017 21:06:42
That would be because bilic never drops him lol

If we get defoe back we may aswell ask Paul Ince to come and coach us

Reece Burke has to be given a shot next year

With a much better keeper our defence is instantly miles better

Some of the signings we made were good players for thier clubs last year ayew and fonte in partIceland looked top notch but they come to us and look average poor tactics and poor training.

8.) 22 Apr 2017 17:42:54
Trust me AI94 I understand what you're saying but we'd be a better side without noble and at this precise time someone would pay 6-7 million for him somebody like Brighton or one of the other clubs coming up this year.



28 May 2015 20:56:25
I feel very sad at losing some of the young players today in particular Danny Potts. It was only a short while ago he was player of the month and then BFS hardly started him - what a waste - I would like to say thanks and wish him all the best where he ends up playing his footbal


1.) 29 May 2015 09:37:16
Have to agree, the others not so surprising but I did think Potts would step up to a first team role. especially following his Dad

Macavannie and Cottee Harston and Kitson take a bow Lanzini a Aurnoutovic.


1.) 14 Jan 2018 08:21:35
Bkkhammer, your comment was exactly the thought that was in my mind! I have a natural suspicious nature, which although not always good, sometimes helpful as well! My first thought when I heard was, he was eying up Arnie, Ibrahimavic is finished, Arnie to me is a very close replica of Ibrahimivic, to me Arnie is a front man, not a winger as I have said previously, he's now getting more recognition banging in goals and assists with us in a short time than he ever did at Stoke in 3 years! the big guns will be watching, let's hope we can hang on to him and also hope they won't go for a double with Lanzini👎👎👎.



10 Jan 2018 14:43:45
Couple of weeks ago Mike mentioned West Ham United were looking at Aiden Flint I queried this looking at his history and couldn't understand why we were looking

Have to say having watched him a couple of times over last couple of weeks think he has something so I am holding my hands up and saying maybe we should be having a deeper look

Anybody else got an opinion?


1.) 10 Jan 2018 15:39:18
Fully agree and the championship is where a bit of value can be had Luke Moore as well looks good let's get back to proper defending hardened pros that's what mites is all about. I think life will be good under moyes.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 09:43:12
Players from the championship in my opinion will not improve our team the difference is staggering the only one I was partly wrong was WOOD I said SNODGRASS was a championship player and was slaughtered and that's what he was.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:06:32
GKG66 - Antonio was a Championship player pal, now one of our best players.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 13:33:58
That says it all mate ANTONIO one of our BEST PLAYERS and overweight inconsistent waste of time but it's all opinions mate and that's mine not being funny could you only think of one.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 13:39:55
Hi glen any top championship player for sale is staggeringly overpriced SCOT HOGAN springs to mind we got away with one there mate you got more value abroad and all that about they've no ENGLISH EXPERIENCE I'm not one of those believers if they are good enough they will settle RIYAD MAHREZ 500'000 what's he worth ANELKA 750,000 I could go on all I'm saying is in my opinion the championship players are way overpriced and a gamble like Europe but they are cheaper glen. COYI.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 07:55:01
Yes there is overpriced players in championship but a few gems as well
We got cresswell for 3 mil Antonio for 7 mil to sell now in an inflated market maybe 40 mil for both we need to understand where we are shopping man city go harrods we go Romford market we can't and won't compete.



07 Jan 2018 13:31:23
Lot of youngsters in the team today let's hope they all have a good game



1.) 07 Jan 2018 14:31:26
Gotta say ayew is garbage.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 14:36:07
Very poor game
Hopefully G AND S will realise we need to improve
Team/ squad.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 14:49:56
Awful awful awful hernandez Ayew Obiang and Kouyate should be ashamed of themselves.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 14:54:15
Look tired and lazy and it's simply not good enough. Front two are getting no supply at all so might aswell not be on the pitch. No creativity in midfield, to many lazy balls and no effort from the front two who should be chasing down and linking up. Sell the pair of them and play Martinez at least he will try. Two over paid premadonas.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 14:58:19
we look like zombies, IRONMIKE.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 15:20:13
The kids are doing ok but established players kouyate, obiang, Hernandez and ayew are a disgrace.



04 Jan 2018 21:57:07
Brilliant performance and the right tactics where did that Obiang worldie come from

Thought fair result over all even the Raver can't be upset about that pne.


1.) 05 Jan 2018 11:15:46
Merceri the only thing that gets to me is spurs are big time Charlie's, the squad we have we should be doing serious things and I knew west ham would get at least a point last night. You lot will finish top half comfortably as you have a good squad and I think if you recruit well in the summer you will challenge the European places next year.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 13:52:57
Nice 1 Raver I do like it when fans are honest and not just parochial

Love the way kane plays and think your full backs are best in league.



03 Jan 2018 11:39:31
Thought Rice was superb when he came on for Cresswell not forgetting he's not really a full back he is just a natural and I would hope he gets a start on Sunday

Would also be interesting to see how Rice and Oxford can play together neither of them should be sold in my opinion.

How would you replace Antonio with just £20M that's a joke sum and whilst Fellani is experienced he is getting on and can be a liability discipline wise.

Rediculous short sighted attitude if Mawson was good enough to make a bid for in the first place and I do think he is a good player then why let him go elsewhere

Unless of course Moyes thinks Rice Oxford and Burke can replace Reid Ogbonna and Fonte.

Hey GKG good to see someone else rave about Rice I've been saying all season how good he is

You should see how good he is as Captain of the U23 never stops talking and encouraging everyone else.

Hi Mike first merry Xmas and happy new year to you

For one even if we have a defensive target lined up I would wanna keep ginger just in case it would only take Reid to get injured again and we would be up against it we already have Creswell playing as a CB although I thought he looked OK at Stoke not so sure about yesterday

Could this be Sullivan saying 1 in 1 out.

Mike isn't it about time fans were asked what they want.

Personally it takes me 2 hours to get to Stratford and 2 hours to get home. This makes it a whole day for me. The worst case is the Friday 8PM kick off as by the time I get back to Paddington trains are busier and often full of people who have been out for a enjoyable evening

At 5PM on the way to the ground the Friday night commuters on the way to Stratford makes trains so packed it really is off putting

Every season I go to the Hawthornes as a guest of a Friend and from Berkshire where I live it is easier and cheaper than getting to Stratford

If the club is being asked I would ask the fans what they want.

I like to think that on his day AC is unplayable and that I Clyde's his footwork as well as his head.

We all know about his injuries and the problems he has but then he does play he always gives defences problems because they don't know what to do with Him. He also adds to the defence from dead ball situations you just put him on the 6 yard line and away it goes.

Tend to agree with Mike here Glen have seen the U23s a few times this season and they are not the same without Rice

Martinez is big, fast but not too skillful also needs to be a real team player Sad that Holland is injured at mom as I think he could have pushed on through this season.
