Mike do you know if Pellegrini wants another left back?


1.) 04 Aug 2018 11:10:47
I doubt that we are done in the market IRONMIKE.



16 Jul 2018 08:45:17
What happened to the Mina bid?


1.) 16 Jul 2018 09:49:50
Not the Mynah bird?

2.) 16 Jul 2018 12:38:37
Our two latest defenders diop and balbuena are not only good defensively but can also play a bit too which i don't think we've had for a while ogbonna as back up will do.

3.) 16 Jul 2018 13:50:33
Would it be worthwhile going for DAS BOST who is available on a FREE I believe from SPORTING? This would finish our forward line of nicely and give us a very scary attack.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 13:52:04
Any news on bernard anybody?

5.) 16 Jul 2018 15:01:06
As in previous messages from the eds and i'm - Das Bost is not available on a free, compensation would still be required.
Good shout though, especially if the Carroll to Besiktas rumours are true.

6.) 16 Jul 2018 16:08:55
He is a beast and scored goals everywhere he has been. At this rate how is our first 11 looking for next season. Will Kouyate, Obiang and Ogbonna and Noble still get a game or be used as squad players.



15 Jul 2018 13:13:31
Ironmike are we looking at a left back? Masuaku is a winger now and Cresswell has detoriarated. Also both players cannot defend?


1.) 15 Jul 2018 13:49:57
The funny thing is I was just thinking about the same thing! its hard to know what the thinking is but as you say we have the problem on both sides with Felipe and Fredericks flying forward on the right Yarmolenko and one of two doing same on left where are the defenders? problem is we are thinking pro rata. MP isn’t. IRONMIKE.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 14:29:20
This is why i said a cheeky loan bid for shaw not only was cresswell defending/ postitioing poor last season his crossing and corners were real poor. he needs so competition for his place . if another cb is brought in that wiuld be 4 cb not including rice although he had a great season i think rice would do really well sitting in front of the back four. i'd keep obiang fernandez and rice also oxford if mp feel he is ready sell noble koyate and either loan or sell byram use that money to fund another cdm.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 17:01:55
The problem was last season we were giveing the ball away too often and only Am could hold the ball up With our attacking formation now it should take a lot off our back line which was lacking in the past. Attack as we all know is the best means of defence. Oh Mike sorry i forgot to say your info has been spot on, keep it up.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 17:53:56
Spot on john that was one our biggest problems we lose the ball then get caught out on the counter noble to slow to get back and if he get back he would give away foul near. the box. cresswell n zabs were playing wing backs zabs even said found difficult getting up down the wings. when musuka got his 6 match ban we didn't win a game,

5.) 16 Jul 2018 13:45:34
Agreed also noble just isn't up to the speed of the premier league anymore and with kouyate bombing forward when obiang was injured it really shone through how missed he was obiang is good enough just to sit whereas kouyate just has not got the professionalism to sit without going on crazy runs and him and nobke should be talking about who goes and who sits that's the reason we were caught out so many times and leaving the back three or four wide open while kouyate has the engine and noble hasn't the pair ain't good enough and is it me or is it a coincidence that we very rarely get other clubs bidding for our players and we could struggle to sell these types of players.



12 Jul 2018 14:42:23
So Mike I’ve heard we now only want a CDM and LB after Anderson and Balbuena. No striker? I thought we were after one (Plea etc. )


1.) 12 Jul 2018 15:52:27
I have explained Plea before IRONMIKE.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 16:28:38
Lucas Perez on loan from Arsenal would be good call and offload SICK NOTE.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 16:34:45
If we complete the Balbuena and Anderson signings, and then only look to add a left back and central defensive midfielder to the ranks before the window shuts. I think it will have been an outstanding window.

Any idea who the defensive midfielder and left back might be?

Personally, given that Barcelona have just signed Sebastian Lenglet from Sevilla I’d enquire about a loan to buy deal for Yerry Mina as well.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 17:36:01
Beast defender.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 18:03:38
I'd give Declan a try at CDM he always looks good in the ball.

6.) 12 Jul 2018 19:15:09
Yes Mike but are we even looking at a striker? I miswoeded my question.

7.) 13 Jul 2018 05:11:04
we have cresswell and masuaku for left back cover, that's plenty for now. Especially if they are playing as wing backs.

8.) 13 Jul 2018 16:33:57
Id rather play rice in midfield over noble and kouyate anyday.



11 Jul 2018 15:51:13
Mike any loan deals being lined up? Sullivan does like the odd loan.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 16:17:44
i thought there were a few Chelsea boys we were looking to loan. Drinkwater, Loftus Cheek and Barkley.!

{Ed002's Note - And many, many more no doubt.}

2.) 11 Jul 2018 16:52:35
With jorghino likely to choose Chelsea over city because of sarri becoming Chelsea's new boss surely drinkwaters gone further done the list of starting for Chelsea and needs a move and a loan with a view to signing would be a good move for both parties as we are desperate for a another c/ m imo because while it's great to sign a lot of flair players which I'm ecstatic about I think we need another c/ m to complete our squad with our immenent transfers regarding Anderson and balbuana.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Sarri really. Conte wante him as a replacement for Drinkwater.}

3.) 11 Jul 2018 17:16:06
Oh ok ed just put 2 and 2 together and thought that's what influenced jorghino choosing them also have you any news of interest for drink water?

{Ed002's Note - I understand the truth is available on Twitter #WonderDogSparky.}

4.) 11 Jul 2018 18:47:41
Cheers ed.

What will happen with Edmilson Fernandes this year with all those players in front of him?


1.) 10 Aug 2018 10:04:40
He’s off to Fiorentina on loan with option to buy in the pipeline IRONMIKE.



30 Jun 2018 12:39:48
So what exactly happened in this 5 way meeting then Mike?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 13:31:54
Nothing I believe shark, still more horse trading to be done in this one mate.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 18:14:52
We might be better at trading horses! IRONMIKE.



19 Jun 2018 21:32:58
Wilshere guys, any takers?




18 Jun 2018 21:08:18
Hi Mike after this performance I’d really like to see Loftus-Cheek in a hammers shirt - is there any chance?


1.) 18 Jun 2018 22:52:24
I hear where your coming from he's class and it baffles me why he can't get a start for england but he's very highly regarded for Chelsea and we couldn't afford to pay that on 1 player my guess £60-80 million just a bit under what MADDISON worth lol p. s we can all talk nonsense.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 23:24:25
Ed I see half a dozen players have cancelled their contracts was that just cause or one of your farts or nonsense at LISBON. COYI.



14 Jun 2018 11:01:33
Mike are we really planning £40 million on 2 centre backs? Mawson/ Diop/ Santos.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 12:30:59
Yes we are 2 of 3. Plenty coming in and plenty to leaveI IRONMIKE.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 13:32:28
MAWSON is AVERAGE at best and is not worth the money being quoted why if he's that good isn't he in theENGLAND squad because we are hardly strong in that department and are having to play WALKER there what sort of message does that send to the other C/ B. COYI.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 20:21:58
Pretty sure Mawson finished the season in the physio room. Perfect for us lol. I personally think he's a good CB, but 20m is a lot of money for me.

4.) 14 jun 2018 20:37:42
he's just had knee surgery don't knowant exactly but think it was a clean up job so shouldn't need much rehabilitation but u just don't rate him and amazed mp is considering him the only advantage is premier league experience which i get is important but him or diop it's a no brained mawson for me is a long way below and we are making a bug mistake signing him if it's true don't mean to sound negative and 1 man doesn't make a team but swansea got relegated so why are we tracking 2 of their players senseless. coyi.

5.) 14 Jun 2018 21:14:48
I think with Mawson he can improve, still fairly young, looks like we want 2 new cbs so I'm guessing they would like Mawson plus Marlon or diop. I think with 2 of those 3 plus ogbonna and rice we would have a really good selection of defenders with 3 of them being at a good age to improve. I don't think swanseas issue was defensively in erm. there defence, no pun intended, it was going forward they struggled, so i don't think it reflects on fabianksi and Mawson being of a poor standard just because as a team they weren't good enough.

6.) 15 jun 2018 22:12:19
hi hammer316 you won't be saying that halfway through the season about mawson he can't defend and is devoud of pace he's good attacking corners bit he's very limited and is no better than ginge only a lot younger . coyi.
