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.

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

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

Happy with a point but I'd hardly call this a classic too many passes going backwards and sideways across the halfway line.




11 Sep 2017 23:24:11
So that's where all the money went 8 new bubble machines.




26 Aug 2017 17:22:36
Can't believe Mark Noble just blamed Rice for the first goal causing all the problems take that stone out of your own eye first.


1.) 26 Aug 2017 17:55:43
Think he knows he's days are numbered.



26 Aug 2017 16:50:31
If he isn't sacked he should resign and I mean now.


1.) 26 Aug 2017 16:58:51
He's got to go, give Noble a player coaching role ( more coaching than playing) get rid of Ayew Fonte and get someone who knows how to defend. oh and bring back Oxford I'm sure he can play cd or dmf! BOARD ACT NOW. PLEASE!

2.) 26 Aug 2017 22:56:13
3-0 to Newcastle shocking. How much worse can it get.



20 Aug 2017 13:08:38
Ironmike in response to your question about Not feeling right I know what you mean I think the spine is poor starting at the back. Sadly I don't think Hart is th GK he was and in the 2 games so far he has looked static yesterday virtually all of his kicks came back. In Defence without Reid we look very poor and yesterday that was the 5th penalty Fonte has given away. In midield Noble is 3 yards slow and without Kaiyote we look susceptible If we do sign Cavaliho it may go some way I thought yesterday's positives were Hernandez Antonio and Rice but Bilic needs to give him plenty of playing time.

Don't agree that Adrian's was poor last year he hardly played in fact it was probably Randolph who let's us down yet Bilic kept on with him don't forget Adrian was player of the year just a couple of years ago.

I'm just back from the under 23 game which was excellent despite being a 0 0 drawer everything that Friday's game wasn't and have to say trott looks a very assured young keeper so maybe it's time to give Hart back to city and make trott number 2 to Adrian

Declan Rice is a very accomplished young captain Talks, directs and plays far ahead of his years - a West Ham captain of the future without a doubt.

I have worries about the way our better youngsters have been handled by Bilic

When Oxford played in that first game of the season against Arsenal he got rave reviews in his next game he was pulled off at half time and has hardly been played ever since hardly encouraging to any youngster

The same happened with Declan Rice this season hauled off at half time for a mistake which led to a goal despite Rice trying to fight back whilst his so called seniors stood around looking on

These kids need encouragement and they don't seem to be getting enough of it none of the first team squad seem to be taking them under their wing and encouraging them

Under 23s had a great result against Manchester United yesterday and are playing Chelsea this Sunday at Aldershot ground - anybody who lives West of London its easy to get to down the M3 12:00,. kick off I seem to remember Ironmike saying he'd been to see them recently and how good they looked.

Totally agree IRONMILE there is no point in dithering around Everyone can see he's lost it completely I read. in the Sun that the majority of West Ham United fans still back him The editor of the Sun should have a look on this site and he might get a bit more of an accurate picture also have you noticed how all the so called pundits just repeat what the previous pundit said.

Let's agree that it was a second yellow and therefore a sending off Carroll was stupid for the challenge.

But let's see what led up to it first Carroll is fouled a couple of times and Burnley are obviously out to wind Carroll up Then he gets an elbow on the back of the neck and Atwelll ignores it then for the first yellow card Carroll is off the ground before the 2 Burnley players and one of the Burnley players runs into him falls over and writhes around Atwelll inconsistently gives Carroll a yellow when clearly It was a 50/ 50 challenge

Now this is where Carroll is stupid and losses his head no pun intended and invites Atwelll to do his best and give him the second yellow followed by the red.

IMHO Hart got away with not giving the penalty away because Atwelll realised his first mistake with Carroll Hart was lucky on this occasion as it should have been have been given

I would like to say that I thought the team played well to defend the one goal lead and that Wood took his goal well. For this goal did anyone think Hart was a bit statIC

Just got home and watched the game all over again believe we should have had 3 penalties particularly the push on Carroll just as he was about to make it 3 3

Does anyone know how many shots Joe Hart has stopped on top of the goals that have gone past him this season I can't seem to remember too many

looking at Spurs 3rd goal my feeling was it was going in until it hit the post

Is Adrian's a better shot stopper.

Dave I agree with you - 2 years ago when Pett was in his pomp I was at the Baggies game and Sat with a group of Baggies supporters who said that West Ham United would win because we had players who could play we won that game interesting how things have changed this season we are the team in disarray whilst WBA have had a good start to the season I'm hoping for a win bit would be very happy with a draw.
