Reading this morning we are apparently 7/ 1 outsiders to sign Jack Butland😧 Quite surprised at that as I thought with the arrival of Fabianski, he was inline for the number 1 slot or to give Adrian some competition, I suspect Adrian wants to go, can't see us getting Butland depending on who else is in for him, real decent keeper though, think we would have 2 really good keepers with the pair, but Stoke I suspect are going to want at least £20m for him! If that is the situation with Adrian wanting to go, we cannot have Trott as a back up keeper yet! Outfield surely we have enough signings providing Arnie stays, good deal if we could get Butland in👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

I think as we near the end of the window players like Butland will be more likely to come to us. Liverpool have signed Alisson so unless Chelsea sign him then I don’t see him having a better option than us.

kaneob, agree with you as the window nears closure the choices with players are more limited, but think you may be rather biased saying he won’t have a better option than😂😂 May tend to agree up to a point but there are families to consider and wags will have a big influence on decisions, wherever he goes he will be on big money, none of them will struggle financially! Some bigger clubs looking for another keeper can easily step in if a previous interest falls through! London is not everybody’s favourite destination!

Chelmsford, I agree but all the top clubs in the prem already have top GKs. Butland needs to be playing prem football or he will relinquish the England no 1 spot and arguably the no 2 spot too. I can’t see any options for him but Chelsea and West Ham. Unless there are any surprise movements elsewhere.

Well, well, well, what a surprise, rainy Manchester have called for first refusal, why o why I am not surprised😂 would we want to sell a 100% proven asset to have to scamper around the market now for a striker when we have the best one here already, Arsenal phone to say Welbecks available, what a coincidence, sorry chaps I 'm a big conspiracy theorist and they'rs One going on here, I just hope when he goes and he will go, they get as Warrington states £40m for him, Welbeck for me again as Warrington says another lame player, Carroll, Reid, Wilshere, Welbeck, my god how many other long term limpers do we want to take on?

Arnie to the Mancs only if they pay a fortune and take Hugill and Snodgrass with him.

£40m for Arnie is no where near enough. I for one would be extremely disheartened if this turns out to be true, selling the best player in the team is not how you build for the future. It could also set a dangerous precedent that if you have half a good season with us we will just sell you on at the first chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wh4ever, Arnie to me is priceless, but realistically at 29 unless we put a valuation on him to put people off even he on a business level is fast approaching an age when sell on values will drop dramatically within a year or so, don’t think the Manc’s or anybody else will pay much more than £30m for him, pointless selling to buy another so called goal scorer when we know he does it for us, only other reason is for book balancing imo? Wenger at Arsenal was wary of giving anybody over 30 a long term contract! As another poster on here said, let’s hope Arnie can see we might have something special happening at our club and wants to be part of a new team team building side fit for Europe and some success next season providing he and his family feel settled here?

I totally agree with what you say Chelmsford believe me I do, I just look at how integral he is to our squad and think "can we guarentee that can be replaced". Swansea were able to get £45M i think it was for Sigurddson last season when the player was clearly making noises for wanting to leave. He is one year younger than Arnie and was Swansea's most important player look at them now. I am not saying we will be doomed if we sell him but for me it sends a negative message. If his head is turned then there is little we can do about it, we all agree on that. Hopefully like you say he will buy into what is trying to be built at West Ham.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2018 21:19:07
Wh4ever, yes agree mate, Sigurddson and quite a few others look a revelation playing for some clubs, attract lots of attention, then look quite ordinary when they move! I thought he was fantastic at Swansea all the time he was there and was I bemused why Spurs sold him, at Everton he’s anonymous! Hope Arnie feels how valued he is but can become another squad player at the Manc's?

Arnie will always start for us if he stays fit and sharp. That would not be the case at Mancsville.

Selling Arnie now would be great financial business, but it would have to be more than what Everton paid for Sigurdson. £50m plus is the MINIMUM and he is worth every penny! The teams touted as being interested are not short of money either! He was one of the best centre forwards in the league once he moved into that position, and in a better team would have scored plenty more. i'd have him in this Pelle team over Lukaku easily.
Personally I do not want to see him leave, and I doubt Pelle would sanction it unless it was for a big sum and he had plans in place to replace him. If sold, the most important thing is how we spend the money and replace him, whatever happens I trust Pelle.
We don't know what Arnie thinks, but I could understand if he wanted to go to one of these teams already in Champions League given his age. We may well get to Europe soon, but we cannot guarantee that next year whereas these teams can. I hope he believes in the project we have going here though, who knows, with no Europe this year we could do a Leicester or a Chelsea!

What's the sketch regarding CMs? I hear we're after N'Zonzi (but we're still after the world if you read the news) but I don't see paying 35m for a 29 year old as good business when we have obiang who I think will be perfect under MP

Id try for a very underated midfielder who hasn't been given a chance at chelsea and if we were serious would be available is DRINKWATER we could loan for a year with a view to a transfer at the end the only problem would be if and i believe he will has a great season his value would rocket we would be getting a premier league winner and tidy footballer for €20 million whos 26 years old if there was money left in the kitty with a few going out there should be i'd try and buy DRINKWATER now.

I don't wanna see armie go.
But maybe cash and rashford wouldn't be a bad deal.

What makes you think Arnie is worth more than rashford?

Is the recent unusual investment down to a certain American billionaire called Albert Tripp smith who purchased a 10% stake in West ham last year.? Is this the man ready to take the helm. Does make you wonder all this splashing the cash is very unlike GandS.

I definitely think that Tripp is playing some part in this.
His pure expertise in finance, and access to hedge funds, for me is giving the club more horsepower.
(Cheap money, structured payback)
Being successful on the pitch, also leads to better sponsors on a global platform. ( our club is one of the best supported in the world, without much success, so the potential is massive) COYIs.

Tripp may well have injected a cash amount into the club and in The long run we will have to see where this path leads, however his true position I believe will be more obvious should West Ham purchase the stadium and look to redevelop it, tripps huge wealth and expertise will then come to the fore ( if it happens of course,
