Reports suggest we've been scouting Dendoncker AGAIN. WTF for? Have we not seen enough of him. Here we go again.


1.) 08 May 2018 11:28:31
Hey Phil. are you ready for the crazy merry go round with us in the transfer market, its going to be the usual crap no doubt, but you never know it could be different this window.

We should know by the end of the day if Moyes has his 2 year contract, not my choice by a long shot but can understand the boards feeling and view on this. stability, stability and more stability, that's put Gold prediction of Champions league back by 5 years or so . :)

2.) 08 May 2018 12:01:03
Different it may be Seymour ( not feeling it though ) 😉, even more interesting is who is buying them and who for? What manger will it be :)

3.) 08 May 2018 13:00:30
Hi fella's

Here we go again with the same old summer merry go round full of promise and hope but with no real direction. I dread to think who we will buy over the summer cause I've heard some horror stories already.

Suffice to say, they can buy who they want cause I'm not wasting my hard earned money lining their pockets.

I will not nor will my son return to that ground until they powers that be have no more power.

The sooner we are bought the better and we got rid of those in charge.

I'm not a fan of Moyes BUT, he made some headway with rubbish players when BILIC Was incapable. What would happen if he had his own selected players? I say give him a chance to recruit players HE WANTS and then let's judge him.

4.) 08 May 2018 14:49:06
Problem is Moyes has not performed as well as Bilic: goals conceded up and less points per game (based only on this season)
I was absolutely gutted with his substitutions in the Stoke game and genuinely do not rate his tactical nous. Also, he had a chance to buy players in Jan (yes, I know what the board are like) but failed to get a defender or Midfielder and bought a Striker who he has used for 21 mins.
Honestly, if this is the 'genius' supposed to take us to the next level can see us getting relegated next year.

5.) 08 May 2018 16:06:05
Not sure I’ve ever heard him described as a genius glen :) not sure either that a genius is what we need . a magic man is nearer the mark lol lol.

6.) 08 May 2018 17:34:49
Err Bilic got 9 points from 11 league games and Moyes 31 from 25 - they don't compare - we would be lucky to have Moyes considering the owners interference and lack of funding.

7.) 08 May 2018 17:55:06
One thing Moyes should get credit for is getting the best out of Marko, something Bilic didn't do, and that's been the key factor in keeping us up. I'm convinced we would have gone down without his performance. I would worry what would happen to Marko's performances of he left and another manager came in who doesn't understand the player fully. For that reason I'd give Moyes another season at least. IF, and this is a huge if, Sullivan and gold do sell up, hopefully to someone who's willing to spalsh the cash abit more than the two Scrooges, is it not better to maintain some level of stability to keep us in the prem even if we don't reach the heights as we did in our last season at Upton Park until we can reorganise from the very top to bottom?

8.) 08 May 2018 20:24:33
Rumour is phil we are very close on ben yedder and martin Braithwaite;) hahaha.

9.) 09 May 2018 11:54:51
He he hilarious you should be the manager and work with the rest of the jokers pmsl must admit was funny.

10.) 09 May 2018 14:19:05
Spot on diggy about ARNAUTOVIC but I genuinely think any manager could as he was an established premiership player who just wasn't putting it in and thought he could be quarenteed a starting place if he was a youngster who MOYESgot playing I'd be more lean g towards him staying buy he's just so similar to hippo and I'd move heaven and earth to get EDDIE HOWE as he's preformed miracles continuing to keep AFC in the premier league on a shoestring budget. COYI.



12 Apr 2018 13:51:25
Tottenham Hotspur eye shock £20m move for West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku? If they were to steal him from us who on earth do we get to replace him? What about Sessegnon if FULHAM don't come up?


{Ed002's Note - Sorry but Sessegnon will not be moving to West Ham.}

1.) 12 Apr 2018 17:03:38
20 mill.! yeah they can jog on at that price.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 07:38:36
Losing Masuaku would be a huge blow. Was always good at going forward but has matured defensively this season (spitting incident aside) - Certainly one i’d fight to keep hold of if I were Moyes. But, that aside. spurs are top 4 and his head may have been turned. we shall see.



09 Apr 2018 09:25:22
Any truth that Sam Allardyce is interested in Cresswell? Anyone else thin that we should go for Jay Rodriguez and/ or Charlie Austin if Southampton and West Brom go down. Then there is Bertrand, Ward prowse to name but a few. I'd also suggest that its time to overhaul our back line and build it around Declan Rice. Zabaletta will obviously be released as will Evra so we need full backs and maybe that's why we are looking at fredericks. More punch is needed from Midfield so I'd also suggest we let Kouyate go along with a few others.


1.) 09 Apr 2018 09:36:09
Didnt zaba sign a two year deal?

2.) 09 Apr 2018 10:00:01
Hi Phil

I dont think Big Scam will be at Everton come next season, as I said many a time his the Red Adair of the Prem and even when he has a settled appointment in my view he is a middle of the table Manager, I think the Everton board who clearly want to move forward have seen enough of his style to get rid, and I dont think he will get many Christmas cards from the Everton fans

Fredericks would be a good appointment as would Ward Prowse but unsure on Austin.

Im not so sure that Moyes will be there next season, I know the DGS want him as Mike has told us, but I dont know if he wants to stay, I personally think he would settle us for a couple seasons and we would not be in this position with his own players, but will the fans want his style of play? . he has a get out of jail card at the moment in keeping us up, but once he brings in his style of players would it not be like when we had Big Scam?, the fans were hardly enthralled with how he set about things.

3.) 09 Apr 2018 11:25:54
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.

4.) 09 Apr 2018 12:05:16
I'd like to think we'd keep zaba for another year, I think he's been pretty good this year and could help with his experience guiding a long term successor as well as giving the squad some leadership.

5.) 09 Apr 2018 13:30:40
Charlie Austin is a decent goal scorer and Jay Rodriguez is a useful player; but I wouldn’t want either of them.

Of the teams at the bottom that might be gone come the end of the season, all of them have a couple of players I’d look at signing come the seasons end.

Ben Foster
Johnny Evans
Jake Livermore

Jack Butland
Kevin Wimmer
Bruno Martins Indi
Ryan Shawcross
Xherdan Shaqiri
Mame Biram Diouf

Fraser Forster
Cedric Soares
Ryan Bertrand
Wesley Hoedt
James Ward-Prowse
Mario Lemina
Nathan Redmond
Dusan Tadic

Now obviously I am not saying I’d sign all those players, but I think one or two of them would be decent additions to our squad.

6.) 09 Apr 2018 15:00:34
Agreed mate. I like ward prowse. Think lemina will be be off to a bigger club.

7.) 09 Apr 2018 16:05:03
I forgot about Fraser Forster. Good goalie just had a poor defence in front of him. I would like to hope whoever our manager is next season that they revamp our back line because ours looks aged and out of sorts. Build the back line around RICE and invest in decent full backs.

8.) 09 Apr 2018 16:49:07
I would love shaquiri here he would be great and could help make Antonio up his game once his injuries clear up.

9.) 09 Apr 2018 17:31:17
Sorry die4 but Butland is about the only player who would be an improvement on the list all the others except maybe Shaquiri are why WBA SAINTS AND STOKE are where they are.

10.) 09 Apr 2018 19:42:46
There is a reason why those 3 clubs are likely to go down and they all suffer from a massive lack of goals. Wouldn’t touch the likes of Rodriguez, Austin, Long etc.

11.) 09 Apr 2018 21:42:17
Shaquiri, Butland, Evans, Livermore, Bertrand.

The rest can jog on.

12.) 10 Apr 2018 00:28:14
Evans, forster, butland, tadic, bertrand, lamina and shawcross i'd take no bother. shaquiri too inconsistent for me for the money we would prob have to fork out, his brilliance more of a flash in the pan than something that could be relied on week in week out. don't think any of the rest would be a marked improvement on what we have already got and would just be squad players mainly. would take shane long too because of his work ethic, the perfect impact sub if chicharito leaves.
evans and shawcross would be a big step up from what we have atm. both with too much premier league experience! if cresswell does leave to go home to liverpool, bertrand is prob like for like or an improvement. get that young fella fredericks from fulham and we might just breathe some life into our back four!
honourable mentions to rondon, livermore, chadli, ward-prowse, redmond, romeu, joe allen, diouf. wouldn't set the world on fire for me as they wouldn't improve us particularly but would take them as if the price was right and some of the current hammers squad should see the exit door.



01 Feb 2018 18:54:34
Did you all know that we offered just £4.4m for dendoncker with the rest to be paid in summer. Just shows how much we tried to get him. and hardly any wonder we got nowhere in this window and don't give me cop out rubbish about "we have high wage bill"! There is always another excuse around the corner.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 19:21:49
Figures are wrong IRONMIKE.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 23:12:15
Ain't read that exact figure MIKE what did we offer up front because that £12 mill should have been paid he's the right age and player we needed but they couldn't because I understand Mike you have to get the best deal and if we weren't so open about our BUISNESS we wouldn't push the value of players up and I ain't saying public meaning this site once again because only IRONS FANS READ IT OR SHOULD.



31 Jan 2018 16:11:16
Ayew on his way to Swansea for a fee between 18-20m. Dendoncker misses training heading towards unknown destination believed to be Watford.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 16:21:46
gets ridiculous really I bet other rumour sites aren't getting this manic lol there must be something going on because in all honesty if the squad is that thin then you wouldn't be selling or loaning players out if you had no chance of anyone coming in . would you?

2.) 31 Jan 2018 16:24:10
IF we can get Dendoncker (which I still hold a little hope of) then I don't mind us getting Hughill (medical planned) and Sol Bamba. At least there are signs that the club is being transformed and big player clear out on the cards, but I feel we should be building around players like Dendoncker who remember is still only 22. In the summer we need to seriously look at getting a quality goalkeeper and full backs.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 16:46:31
I don't see what hugill adds? other than 6ft when carrolls out different route.

I read in the tabloids today that kouyate might be used as a makeweight with anderlecht his former club in £12m plus kouyate for dendoncker! That means dendoncker is for sale at £12m and 50p lmfao.




30 Apr 2018 19:52:04
It seems a lot of fellow hammers fans feel the same way we all do and they've also had enough. Watch season ticket sales plummet next season. Shall we talk about players we are interested in now NOT!


1.) 30 Apr 2018 20:42:01
So now carol and Moyes have fallen out
For crying out loud the players need to
focus we are in deep trouble
Why is there only bad news about our club.

2.) 01 May 2018 13:04:06
Well he was only going to be a sub for 3 more games ARP and then he was off. saying that if Moyes leaves him out with such importance of staying up because of a row, even though I think she should be dropped its the wrong time

I don't think we can afford him not to be involved even though as a sub, WH should say they are investigating his toys out of pram fiasco until we are safe and than hit him with a fine, at least he may pay back some of the wages his accumulated whilst he was injured, he saved us 2 points against Stoke and could prove a saviour.

3.) 01 May 2018 16:04:51
In both the arsenal game n city game we created most of our own problems giving the ball away cheaply with to many players committed forward Arnautovic was causing there back four problems with Carroll on I think they would been more cautious even it meant us going long a lot of times we won the ball n lost it before we got out of our half. just clear your lines we looked to play out from the back to often.

4.) 02 may 2018 10:22:00
we have got no midfield pressing players in noble and kouyate (who spends most of game going on nutty runs and losing the ball in our opponents final third) bkkwhats your view on noble who has got away with it in the allerdyce days as well and i get slaughter ed for it if he's wèst ham through and through why does he just jog around like a noddy dog all game our whole midfield and defence are utterly shocking and needs a total revamp which with our current owners i don't believe this possible (tripp smith apart) . coyi.



30 Apr 2018 15:26:02
Full squad trained with our academy under 9's today and a game ensued with the under 9's winning 4-1. Mark Noble got sent off LMFAO.


1.) 01 May 2018 13:10:38
Phil I heard Noble was warned after his scissor tackle on little Tommy currently in grade 7, he than persisted with little niggles throughout the game, where as the Ref had enough.

I also heard he called young Stephen a to**er while walking off, which made the young lad go crying to his mum on the sidelines.

You don't expect such behaviour from a WH captain even though they were 4 down at the time. He should be fined and also go to the local sweet shop and buy the boys some sweets and Panini stickers.

2.) 01 May 2018 13:20:22
Warrington. You are a star :-) RAFL

More entertainment on this website than there is watching a first team play football. AND I hear a load of rubbish about £30m drinkwater! Just when you think it can't get worse.

3.) 01 May 2018 13:47:09
You have got to laugh Phil, otherwise your cry. what an absolute shambles were in, we have Bill and Ben at the helm, with Brady waiting in the wings for her next assignment in a few years to find a buyer, we have no home other than a stadium which you need the Hubble Telescope to see who playing let alone who on the ball, we have a Manager who would not crack a smile even if he was on laughing gas. and a bunch of over paid players ( bar a couple) who can't wait to pack there bags and leave.

And to round it all off my Thames Iron Works Ceremonial shirt was chewed to pieces by the bloody dog at the weekend. well they do say Dogs have a 6th sense, maybe his trying to tell me something!

4.) 01 May 2018 14:06:50
The final straw for me Warrington was when my lad asked me why do we go to such lengths to follow a club that the owners don't care about. I got in my HOUSE 3 x Man Utd fans, 1 x Chelsea, 1 x Arsenal and a Notts Forest Fan (I now live in Nottingham after coming out the army) . Even when I was in the army I used to try and get home to get a match in and watch our Hammers. NOW, I wouldn't go to the end of my street.

5.) 01 May 2018 14:58:50
Warrington, good fun you and Phil re Hammers playing the kids😂😂😂😂.

6.) 01 May 2018 16:16:56
I thought so also. More fun than one of our home games LMFAO. MAYBE they should pay us cause they love throwing money away on rubbish RAFL.



10 Mar 2018 16:42:19
Can somebody tell me when is the last time we UPGRADED one of our defenders and fonte certainly isn't an upgrade.


1.) 10 Mar 2018 17:10:00
That would have been . errrrr nah give up phil.

2.) 10 Mar 2018 17:40:59
Seriously I can't remember either? And am trying really hard. Cresswell maybe? But is he an upgrade?

3.) 10 Mar 2018 18:31:34
The whole back line needs replacing and that includes CRESSWELL who is so overated can't defend to save his life I'll tell you what we need a R/ B let's get a freebie in and I'll tell you what we need cover at L/ B so let's get a freebie the only people to bla me are the owners not the players who are simply not up to it consistently it's no good having a decent performance here and there because eventually you'll get found out and that's what's happening we've got to many players who think they are untouchable because they have a decent couple of games.

I'm sick to death of it this is my clear out list, Zabaletta, Reid, ogbonna, crest well, noble, kouyate, Hart, fonte, now for the shock ones cash in on LANZINI, ANTONIO, CARROLL maybe not a shock. it's going to cost a lot of money our only saviour is TABOR and if we go down surely he would have lost interest by then but I could see this coming a long time ago and it's clear the clowns who run the club on a shoestring (not because we don't have to the money's available) didn't then they have to get out and run literally because they don't belong anywhere near our fantastic football club.



04 Mar 2018 21:00:11
I would suggest we start looking at stand out championship players for next season. Bobby reid, Madison to name but a few.

Its being reported everywhere MIKE that Pellegrini if flying in on Sunday to sign contract. he did well at Villareal on a shoestring. Wonder what budget they have offered him and I wonder which players are for the chop? Interesting times ahead hopefully as long as SULLIVAN keeps his sticky little fingers out.
