Anything in the Nasri link?

I really hope not - why would we want a washed up 31 year old who’s well past his best, and has just come back from an 18 month drug ban.

We get enough bad press at it is. this would be so toxic to the dressing room and club as a whole, sending out the wrong message.

09 Nov 2018 13:10:30
Unfortunately that's what we do give £70,000 a week to somebody that either never plays or occasionally plays i. e EVRA ARBELOA we are WHUFC . COYI.

Seen an article quoting redknapp saying man city should sign Rice. Why are we taking so long to get his contract sorted. Imagine if we lost him for a pittance or nothing at all.

He's the future of the club get it done this has to be our priority, it would be a huge blunder if we lost him.

This is getting ridiculous now, all the fans were against the board, so they wised up, brought in a good manager and spent a bit a money to get us on side, we have all sat and watched rice develop, watched him shine, and now we are sitting watching the vultures circle because our board have gone back over again because they have paid stupid wages to others, so we will all sit here now powerless to what is happening, wishing that they would just give the kid a good deal and tie him down. I for one will so peeeeed off if we lose him and I think that will be me done, it will be heartbreaking to see the be taken away from us to rot in a so called bigger clubs reserves or bench, because that is what will happen, even though he is far to good for that. Please WH board do the right thing, these kids are the future, u wanted another MR WESTHAM well their he is bold as brass, make this happen for him and for us.

06 Nov 2018 07:46:02
Whitby, yes we would all agree with that regarding Rice, also the same applies to our other young rising star Diangana, what another wonderful talent⚒ If you are good enough, you are young or old enough, regardless of age you should be paid your value regardless, Premiership standard players are valuable commodities, we all know they are vastly overpaid, but that is how it is! We all know setting precedence can be dangerous regarding wage structure, but also seeing great talent being washed away by a club can also influence other young rising up and coming talent! We have been prepared to pay stupid, stupid money to JW and JH, AC and several others who I foresee doing nothing for our club and are living off long faded talent, so let’s tie them down before as Whitby says before the usual money “ Vultures” start to circle and we lose them!

06 Nov 2018 08:29:38
I've also seen an article saying a swap could be on the cards involving Wanyama, I bloody hope not.

06 Nov 2018 10:08:02
Iron. AI, Harry Redknapp wants to cause trouble with WH making comments like that imo! He was touting for the WH job when Moyes wasn’t given a new contract by saying “he thinks he can still do a good job” or words of that sort, so he’s now making snide comments for being scorned, when you are past your sell by date with Harry, that’s it!

06 Nov 2018 14:37:12
It was Jamie, Chelmsford. Sorry should have specified.

We shouldn't deal with spurs at all that's simple, and offering wanyama as a swap that's a blatant kick in the teeth, however I think that's the papers putting 2+2 together and getting 5 just for a story.

06 Nov 2018 15:27:30
Iron. A194, 😂😂 Sorry Harry🤣🤣Jamie’s another WH hater as well though👎👎 wants to smile a bit more! 🤣🤣⚒⚒.

06 Nov 2018 16:15:36
Still upset about all the hate towards big fat Frank. All traitors. Haha.

07 Nov 2018 00:35:35
Rice isn't going no where, it's just contract negotiations, we wouldn't let this get to the point where he can leave, it will all sort it self out in the end and he will sign a new deal, he is west ham through and through that's the reason the board have offered so little. If it was bothering him that much he's performance would drop and it hasn't. Theirs no rush atm just be patient people.

07 Nov 2018 07:31:28
Danny, that’s a very reassuring post, but as we know in life, people fall in and out of love with different things for differing reasons, I don’t think they should assume he so loves the club he would never leave, how many couples in life do we all know that have split up, that’s the best example I can use, get the job done, in life never assume!,
But I hope you are right, good reas#uring positive comment👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

07 Nov 2018 13:50:41
Another could well step in with a better offer and the chance of CL football.

07 Nov 2018 15:08:12
Bkk, exactly, you can never say, never, about most things that can’t be changed, but minds and attitudes can change like traffic lights if you are influenced! You can never discount injuries either, serious or otherwise, so I would advise him if he were my grandson, that life doesn’t always run smoothly, but being happy at a club is major, but we should still push the boat out for him! If Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, came sniffing, he wouldn’t even need to uproot and move!

07 Nov 2018 19:30:49
I have read that it might be a FFP issue and that we will sort out a mutually agreeable contract for Rice once we’ve shipped one or two (or three or four) out in the Jan window.

07 Nov 2018 20:28:51
Get rid of Carroll and give Rice Carrolls wages, and the captains armband, job done.

03 Nov 2018 10:31:54
Jorabchain last night talking with WH re Barbosa, continues after game today, WH have failed in first attempt to get Loftus Cheek on loan IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Nov 2018 23:12:25
Thought Pellegrini didn't like loans? Or could there be an option to buy?

04 Nov 2018 15:45:28
Barbosa used to be quality in brazil and isn't to bad at the moment there was tipped for very big things but flopped in italy although tlhe hardly had any minutes on the pitch for ages i don't know what anyone else thinks on this one bit of a gamble.

05 Nov 2018 10:47:04
Never watched this guy live but heard good things and he is clearly gifted technically.
What is his natural/ best position Mike?
Loan deal for the right player could work, with Lanzini and Yarmolenko out and Diangana making such great progress another winger on the books with a long contract could be a costly investment. This of course assumes Lanzini and Yarmo make full recoveries.
I trust Pellegrini though, i am sure he has a plan set out and on the plus side he is really getting a look at what his squad players are capable of with all our injuries, so maybe there is a plus side to them LOL.

05 Nov 2018 17:48:04
Second striker main position can also play on the wing, looks like MP wants to try before you buy he’s looking at a few different people. IRONMIKE.

07 Nov 2018 19:36:47
We have both Holland and Xande returning from injury and both are wingers by trade and fast and skilful. There has also been talk of Almiron in Jan and he is a winger/ 10. Lanzini is ahead of schedule.

I don’t think we need to look beyond that.

Left back is still the issue for me.

09 Nov 2018 23:21:04
Agree markro, we have some young exciting prospects at the club I think these rumours show how important it is for Pellegrini to have lots of quality and options in an attacking sense so that we have enough quality to hold on to the ball long enough in the final third defending by attacking possession.

As for the full backs it's tricky if only zaba was younger we wouldn't have to worry there, hopefully Fredericks can step up and take over from him when the time comes not an easy task.

I prefer masuaku to cresswell he's younger and still time to improve that being said it's a massive improvement needed with regards to his defensive dutys.

I want to see us strengthen in the middle of the park. Noble aging, wilshere injury prone, obiang was so close to leaving, Snodgrass not a cm by trade but can do a job in a 3 man midfield. I think this is where we need to make a statement signing bring in the best we can get.

11 Nov 2018 19:58:39
Strengthening central midfield is an absolute must in January. Donny van de Beek of Ajax would be the way to go, only 21 but he's the definition of a box to box CM who can link the back and the front with ease. Kid's going to be world class and it would be a real coup if we swooped before the mega clubs do. which they will.

Whether Ajax would sell is another matter, but historically they've always been a selling club. £16M is the price tag, which is relative peanuts for a decent CM.

01 Nov 2018 23:32:36
SORRY not FROSINONE. West Ham talking with Benfica re Castillo.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Nov 2018 11:06:08
I think you will struggle to find a West Ham fan who does not think our transfer priority should be to get Declan Rice signed to a long contract worthy of his status and value to the team. I understand the idea of this style of contracts they want players to be on but at the same time we are intending to be cutting wages in January with sales so give Rice a proper contract before his head is actually turned.

02 Nov 2018 13:00:45
Yes I think we are all agreed on this subject. IRONMIKE.

01 Nov 2018 23:30:39
NOT exactly pushing the boat out here as WH talk with Frosinone about Nico Castillo CF. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Nov 2018 17:47:48
Manuel Shaarawy, the father of El Shaarawy talking to WH tomorrow, could be interested in move to WH, won't be cheap but what is? A lot better than what we have despite all the setbacks. ANDERSEN. The biggest of them ! WH still showing ambition. It's good to see IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Nov 2018 19:05:31
I see his name linked to us a few days ago Mike on another site, didn’t think much of it as I thought it was just gossip, good player, fingers crossed, let’s see what happens.

01 Nov 2018 23:01:58
Mike what's the latest on Rice? We need to tie him down before he gets his head turned. Even seen a spurs website saying that they surely should make an offer, I couldn't bare that.

01 Nov 2018 23:28:53
AL. WH asking for trouble the way they are messing about with Rice? None of us see the point in this, they are trying to make there new contract idea stick, very difficult to do, the player is not exactly being greedy, is he? I fully understand the fiscal side of things, but this is going down the wrong road altogether. IRONMIKE.

02 Nov 2018 12:17:40
I know it doesn't work like this but RICE should be getting more money than the majority of the squad on ability and COMMITMENT alone what's your views Mike as very soon a bigger club than us is going to give him an offer he can't refuse because he's suprised me how far he's come since that Liverpool game he will be the next youngster called into the ENGLAND squad and that exposure will just improve his stock and we can only blame the board once again if he does leave as I think this kid is going to be a huge star. COYI.

02 Nov 2018 13:02:56
Can’t do other than agree on all counts, eventually we will lose this player IF WH don't sort this out I feel they will however. IRONMIKE.

02 Nov 2018 20:21:45
Mike I remember you mentioning about the wage policy we were trying to implement similar to that of Newcastle and Cardiff hardly a good blue print to follow are they? In theory it sounds good but could easily lead to getting stumped by other clubs not offering the same and Making us a less attractive proposition to many players. once that structure is in place if broken could seriously upset the apple cart. Ideally we need to get rid of the big earners that don't pull their weight not as simple as it sounds but a balancing act we could get with more successful transfer windows.

02 Nov 2018 21:24:00
Yes going to be very difficult to implement this structure, whilst the majority of clubs havnt, but the wage bill is enormous, which is one thing, and certain players are getting paid for nothing which is a major hinderance , I understand both sides it’s getting the balance right which is the problem. IRONMIKE.

01 Nov 2018 17:36:59
OK there has been a meeting between DGS and MP over the transfer window, they are going to back him for the 35 m we have in reserve plus all that he sells, NOW whilst I think we will get rid of a few and we don't need to discuss the obvious ones, they are NOT going to fetch much. BUT DGS are keen to get them off the wage bill so that's very helpful. Almiron is being discussed right now, Kessie as well BUT the opening offer is NOT as high as media have printed. 28-5 m EUROS, Gabigol only a LOAN deal is being talked over, at present not a perm Hold change MOSES, who once looked odds on to join us on loan with a perm option, Has now been looked at by Man United So that's now in the balance IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Oct 2018 13:21:37
Whats going on with Reece Oxford, Mike?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Nov 2018 17:19:40
Not a lot mate he’s on the out list IF we are lucky enough to get a decent bid. IRONMIKE.

30 Oct 2018 00:09:49
How much truth in the Diop/ PSG rumour? I'm sure they would keep an eye on French players doing well but are they really lining up a 50m bid? Would be a great profit but surely we want to keep the players we bring in but I guess the risk with any foreign players is they will want to take a good opportunity back home if it arises.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Nov 2018 17:21:53
HE WONT be leaving just yet whatever happens He’s the star of the transfer window IF we get a genuine bid of 60 m plus maybe BUT there have been NO enquiries so far. IRONMIKE.

29 Oct 2018 11:12:42
I had lunch yesterday with a friend who is a Spurs supporter and we were talking about the delays to their new ground. He said that he has spoken to workers at the site and been told that the main reason for the delays are problems with the electric installation AND that the bulk of the electricians are Irons supporters.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Oct 2018 13:11:28
To let you know syd there are more than 50 WH. Scarves in the foundations. At the new end of White Hart. Lane , so you would be correct. IRONMIKE.
