It looks like Man Utd early favorites to sign Arnie, so my question to you guys is, are there any players from Utd that you would like to see come the other way, e. g. Lukaku isn't exactly pulling up trees at Utd like he was at Everton but could he do a job for us, I'm just asking the question, we see far to offten players playing well for a club then wanting to go to a so called bigger club then not quite working out, any thoughts chaps.

Don’t be surprised to see Chelsea as early contenders and, of course, European sides will perk their ears up.

My hope is that he agrees to the end of the season.

Will be sick to see him go if it happens😩😩😩😢😢😢 but it seemed inevitable it would happen with all the attention he’s been attracting, what will he achieve with us apart from adoration👏👏 doubt if Lukaku would want to come to us anyway somehow? I would think Pellegrini will be looking overseas as usual as we have nobody to step up to give a chance to? Can only but hope that maybe it doesn’t happen🙏🙏⚒⚒⚒.

No doubt it will happen at some stage. Hopefully at the end of the season and he doesn’t do a Payet. I know it shows my age but I hate the fact there is no loyalty but what loyalty should an Austrian, Frenchman or anyone else have to an English club that isn’t winning trophies tbf? Sadly unless things change we will see the conveyor belt continue to bring players in that will leave in 2-3 seasons no matter how much they say they love the club in between time. No doubt players like Diop, Rice, Anderson etc won’t be spending their careers at West Ham and we just have to hope we buy better than we sell.

Lots of talk today about Arnie leaving in January.

Where would our goals come from?

Mike, is that a little ray of hope you’re offering? If it’s not in January, it’s inevitable it will be in the close season surely? unless we suddenly start to escalate up the table and win something which seems unlikely?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Nov 2018 23:30:42
Hi Chelms if he's going to go it would have to be in January IMO and if it doesn't happen then we will have a player on our books who's heads been well and truly turned and not putting It all in and we don't need that I'd be gutted if he goes but we want top dollar if he does and spend it wisely as we should get 3 very good players for the sale of ARNIE that's really ruined my week and Christmas if this happens in January lol all jokes aside life's too short to let this bother us but it's a close thing losing your best player lol. COYI.

I know you can’t believe all you read, but apparently his brother is his agent who he trusts implicitly, his brother states, “29 is the best age to move on” (for obvious reasons” he needs to be playing at the top level, not battling in a club with relegation problems” etc etc, so he’s going whatever happens, on BBC text today it states “WH will block any January move for him” take that with a pinch of salt as it’s possibly done to increase any bids!

Whatever happens will happen, but Arnie in my view is hiding behind his brother on this situation, he should face the media and admit, yes it is about money and ambition! We were hardly potential Champion League contenders when we signed him!

Nice to see the premier league executive Scudamore is getting 250k from each PL that's after his 2.5 million salary. Makes you laugh really doesn't it.

Scudamore is certainly laughing dave all the way to his next million hard life ain't it perhaps we could get some work like that and pull the sympathy card dave poor old dicky. COYI.

It's pretty obvious that we've got money to spend on wages by offering Nasri £80k a week, surely we could've used that money to sort out Rice's contract?

They've got to get their priorities right Mike.

Maybe Hernandez out 120k wages split 80k Nasri, 40k Rice.

I actually wanted us to get Nasri before he went to Sevilla. He's got a lot of quality on the ball I think he would help us create from deeper. I know people talk about his attitude but I'm sure Pellegrini knows him better than us, the thing that concerns me is his time out and Age maybe the break has done him some good and he comes back fighting who knows. Any thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2018 16:57:28
I agree with the negative comments around Nasri, as he does present some degree of risk. BUT, i don't think it is as bad a deal as people make out. We clearly need technical players in the team ATM, ideally with PL experience, and if accounts are correct that Antonio and Hernandez may well be out then Nasri on a short term basis may work. I for one would rather have Nasri coming on after 60 mins than Antonio, he will bring a degree of composure and a final ball that Antonio lacks. Get £10m for Antonio and we have a net profit of £5m (plus a better player IMO) which can go towards a second striker such as Barbosa (or someone else) if Hernadez does go, so that's a win win.
Come summer we can say goodbye and conduct the second big stage of re-structuring. Nasri has BOTH experience in the PL and a previous relationship with MP, which suggests he is LESS OF A GAMBLE than paying a big sum for someone else who may not have PL experience and MP will have to learn about. Nasri may also have something to prove, and choosing a short term deal with a manager he knows and has positive memories of working with may prove this. If he fails with us under MP then his career is over, whereas he could maybe get a 3 year deal elsewhere on £50k with a signing on fee.
We CANNOT spend huge money buying another wide player on a long contract, as we have Lanzini and Yarmo to come back which would leave us over-stocked here. So a deal like this with Nasri makes complete sense, he will have time with the squad to get fit before Xmas, so he will be settled and in sync with the squad come Jan 1st. It represents an upgrade on Antonio for the second half of the season, a profit, AND we can walk away come summer if we wanted to.
Were we offering a 3 year deal my feelings may be different.

Looks like the deal starting from January for Nasri is on the way to being done? Hope your right Iron. Al👍👍
No doubting previous quality, but can only rely on Pelligrini’s judgement, now get Rice sorted as you say!
We’ve not been short of deals since Pelle’s been In charge that’s for sure🤣🤣 let's hope he gets some off the books as well in January 👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

The Sun is suggesting it may fall over due to the state of his fitness - I would prefer it fell over tbh.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2018 23:39:22
I really don't get this one at all and I think it's got us written all over it I tell you what we will give a SHORT yes SHORT term deal for a player that hasn't played for 18 months now I don't care if he's been keeping fit in the gym which I don't doubt for one minute because he's never ever Been over weight or out of condition ( take note Antonio) but it's going to take 4-6 weeks to get up to pack of he premiership then he WILL think he's a certain starter which he WONT and another thing is we have LANZINI back soon unless we don't know something about a relapse in his recovery Mike might fill us in on that subject but a short term deal of £80,000 a week for him to be on the bench and causing havoc which he's week renowned for not saying he will but come on really this stinks of a bad deal IMO hope he proves me wrong but why oh hey do we have to entertain these has been who I might be doing us a disservice by saying he can't have ambitions anymore and is only looking for yes you got it a redundancy pay off but why use us for it we don't owe him kcuf lla and I'd be over he moon if it doesn't happen . COYI.

I think it’s dead in the water.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Nov 2018 22:19:24
It’s not entirely dead, BUT personally I would set fire to the contract at first opportunity First which type of Nasri do we get he’s physically ok. Passed the medical he has no injuries of any kind, BUT hasn’t played at top level for a very long time 4/ 6 weeks won’t be long enough more like 8/ 10 weeks which would make the contract ridiculous, leave well alone in my opinion. IRONMIKE.
