Apparently MP is interested in Valencia at ManU to replace Zabaletta, another younger oldie to replace another oldie? Not quite sure about that but has been really decent in the past! Also has given Carroll a contract warning that he needs to play more often to win a new contract, well hopefully that's dead in the water! Pity he didn't think to say that to Wilshere before he signed him!

I see that about Valencia as well Chelmsford, I don't know how long Fredericks is out for but once fit we need to give him a few minutes on the pitch to get him up to speed and give him confidence, I also see Nasri is set to sign on wages believed to be £80-£100k a week, what must Rice be thinking, I would rather get in a couple of loans in January and concentrate on Rice's contract.

07 Dec 2018 13:23:48
The paramount thing that WH should do is get Rice on a new contract NOW. paying above average wages to has beens does not give a good impression to Rice, he must wonder what is going on around him. If we lose Rice it would be devastating to the supporters.

07 Dec 2018 14:08:55
Hammer man, it wouldn't just be devastating, I think there would be a bloody riot, you will get banners at home games saying BOARD OUT, and we don't really want all that to start up again, let's hope it is all being sorted out behind the scenes?

07 Dec 2018 18:11:52
So what can the problem be by not getting Rice on a long term contract. Its about time we were told the truth, or is it just our board being stubborn. It can't be that the club can't afford it as we are paying squad players drastically over the odds.

07 Dec 2018 20:40:32
As I said above, and playing devils advocate above, maybe it’s his agent and Rice who don’t want to negotiate yet?

05 Dec 2018 17:48:15
Roma want Arnie and want to give us Dzeko as part of the deal?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 18:29:09
Spurs have made a spectacular bid for cengiz under of Roma, so they may take it, which MIGHT see them bid for Arnie, IRONMIKE.

05 Dec 2018 21:41:00
We should have gone in early to try get him when his was at basaksehir looked good cheap player something we needed at the time.

05 Dec 2018 21:54:27
Isn't Arnie 'injured now?

{Ed002's Note - Their interest relates to being a replacement for Dzeko not Under.}

07 Dec 2018 12:35:43
Arnie for Dzeko and cash and then use the remaining cash for Barboza and Clyne! Sort out RICE contract issue and let hernandez go to Besiktas and AC to Galatasaray.

07 Dec 2018 14:19:07
Could be the way to go Phil, we don't know if Arnies injury is going to be an on going injury, his not getting any younger, hate to say it but could it be time to cash in?

07 Dec 2018 19:11:50
With all due respect if Arnie goes to Roma, Hernandez to Besiktas and Carroll to Galatasaray where do hou expect the goals to come from fkr the rest of the season .?

03 Dec 2018 16:45:56
There's a report saying we're interested in Bradley Dack?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 21:20:17
Stevie, must confess I had never heard of him, so looked up on Google, seems Palace are interested as well, reported £20m⚒⚒.

04 Dec 2018 07:51:41
Looks fairly definitive that we are going to give Nasri a 6. month contract starting from when his ban ends on 1 January 2019. MP is making to many positive remarks about him for the decision not to have been already made! I wasn’t keen when I first heard our interest, but I am beginning to really warm to the idea now of playing with us👍 I remember him as being a really feisty player which I must confess I really like, you definitely need some steel and creativity which he certainly had in his early career, in your team to win things IMO and it also shows passion that can rub off onto other players⚒⚒.

04 Dec 2018 17:11:01
If he's still got it and wants to prove something, yes let's have him - if he's just looking for a final pay day, then no.

04 Dec 2018 18:22:54
Guyser, yeh agreed, just a pity we can’t make him take a “lie detector” test🤣🤣⚒⚒⚒.

29 Nov 2018 12:17:46
I've been reading that we are interested in signing Victor Moses, could be useful?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2018 07:51:13
Stevie, agree definitely mate, said a few weeks ago when I saw Moses May go in the January window through lack of playing time, that I would like us to go for him👍Was with us previously, no injury problems to my knowledge, seasoned Premiership player and International, must be worth going for providing fee or loan situation suitable to both parties! He would hit the ground running hopefully! Can’t keep playing Antonio unfortunately, deteriorated terribly, likewise Hernandez,
Saturday at Newcastle is a vital game for both teams, time maybe for Carroll to play 30 minutes or so if available, can’t afford to let the Maggies take 3 points, as they will climb away from us, would settle for a point before the game, at least it would keep us together, but a win would be a super result👍COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

29 Nov 2018 09:50:49
WH fall asleep on Almiron as Newcastle takr up the running, / . Man United are we interested. Phil Jones? WH not sure re Cahill , as the player looks to Villa,

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2018 15:37:42
Who would we prefer? Tough one :)

29 Nov 2018 09:41:09
Regarding the Rice situation and Sullivan / whoever else is concerned, from an outside point of view, we all want to see progression for our club and gain respectability within the Premiership and are all must be fed up with us continually languishing in the relegation zone! The opinion seems to be "Sullivan is shrewd" yes maybe but everybody has weaknesses and makes mistakes, maybe in the world of porn he was extremely successful, making money he has been successful, but running a football club, maybe not so successful in winning some silverware and gaining respectability!

We have become easy touches for wasting money on huge wages, that's not shrewd look at Levy at Spurs, now he is what I call shrewd, fantastic Manager, great players, great football, I am now thinking the board has given Pellegrini to much control in desperation for success, I would simply not give anybody that much control if I had invested tens of £millions, that's not shrewd in my opinion! your employee can walk away without a worry in the world with their bank stuffed with £millions for being a failure! I hope by the end of the season I am proved wrong on all accounts!

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Nov 2018 14:49:27
After watching Keith Balde again WH have little chance of nabbing him, Milan will surely take up their option IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2018 12:55:41
Agreed. I think the main priority has to be full backs because ours are dreadful and if Zabaletta leaves as expected we are even shorter.

28 Nov 2018 14:41:28
any truth we may go in for Almamy Toure? seems a good option.

28 Nov 2018 18:08:33
So many beng looked over, it’s nye impossible to rubber stamp anyth8ng just yet. IRONMIKE.

25 Nov 2018 10:50:42
Before the game yesterday I realistically thought we would be lucky to keep it to a 3-0 city win so want too surprised at 4-0

I think had we taken all our chances this could have been a high scoring drawer Antonio could have had had a hat trick Arnie ce close twice and even Zab could have got on the score sjheet had he shot instead of passing inside the 6 yard box

We now have a run of 8 winnable games only hope that Arnies injury doesn't prevent him playing 100% and with the threat of Carroll coming back we have a bit more of a strike partnership

I actually think we missed Snodgrass yesterday and it is obvious to the 54,000 home supporters that Creswell should always start on front of Arthur

Subs seemed a bit strange but were we going to get 3 goals? Probably not so better to let Carroll recover a bit more and come back fired up for the visit to Newcastle I'm still optimistic of a top 20 finish lol.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Nov 2018 10:54:57
Sun reporting Stephen el Shaarawy is wanted by MP, Mike. Any inside info on this one as I really think this could be a real step up.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2018 17:59:29
Yes mentioned this fortnight ago, he’s more like it. IRONMIKE.

22 Nov 2018 18:57:21
Cheers Mike.

23 Nov 2018 21:11:57
Yep most def a good one, but back to whu today sadly, I'm hearing / reading that lanzini might indeed be out until next season ( let's hope that's all ) so ( if fit and able ) would nasri be a short term fix?

23 Nov 2018 22:05:56
Nasri of Arsenal, Man City yes, but what would we be getting now? IRONMIKE.

24 Nov 2018 18:27:52
True Mike,

19 Nov 2018 21:18:48
arnie to everton? would he cut it at a big club tho that's the big worry. and relax am only joking, surly that's not going to happen is it lads, is he worth the reported 50m?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 08:36:49
to be honest at 29/ 30 yrs old 50m is a lot of money to turn down.

20 Nov 2018 10:36:45
But he's worth more than £50.illipn to us inn todays market.

20 Nov 2018 12:08:30
Would he see Everton as a bigger club? No disrespect to anyone meant ed .

20 Nov 2018 13:37:35
No chance he will go to Everton. If he moves it will be for a regular Champs league team, otherwise what is the point. £50m is a LOT for a player who has never scored more than 14 goals in a season, which was at FC Twente 10 years ago!
Granted, his switch to CF has dramatically improved his goals per game, which if he continues at current rate he will get over 20 for us this season. HOWEVER he still has to prove that he can do it over a whole season, which is why i think it is a risk for any potential buyer at this time, but if a desperate top team comes in then he may take it as his last chance to play in the Champs League, rather than staying and becoming a LEGEND at West Ham.
They key question for us fans is do we trust MP and Husillos to use the money to replace him effectively. My personal feeling is YES, as their recruitment so far has been decent considering they have had to do a LOT. Injuries aside the only poor acquisition so far has been Perez, and he was only ever a cheap backup option.
Can we REALLY get £50m for Marko tho, which is what we would need to replace him, so that is what he is worth to us!

20 Nov 2018 16:49:47
Put him on 150k a week on 2 year deal . He is worth keeping and should match Anderson and hernandes.

21 Nov 2018 12:00:05
to be fair he should really be on the same wages as Anderson and Chica after all we are not the same team without him something that can´t really be said about the other 2!

22 Nov 2018 13:36:43
I agree and disagree Irontodd and Costa.
At the end of the day Arnie has only had one full season for us and managed 11 goals. What Anderson achieved at Lazio was already better than that which is what warranted his higher wage. Hernandez had scored 26 goals for Leverkusen (twice that of Arnie's BEST ever season) followed by 13 in an injury hit season, and his consitent history got him the salary he is on (although we all admit it has not worked out at WHU and his value for money so far is not there)
If Arnie wants that salary level then he needs to PROVE he is worth it over a full season. His demands are very much based on the NOW rather than "look what i have consistently done over a full season". I agree he is vital to our form CURRENTLY, but half a seasons form will never convince a board to dramatically increase a salary. If he continues like this to end of season then I agree the board would have no option but to increase.
Look at Lanzini, he is still on a tiny wage in comparison yet we all know his worth. Were it not for his injury he would be getting a new contract, but he had to prove it over years, not 20 games.

22 Nov 2018 18:30:52
Nick, we live in the football world of statistics which is ok if the stats of whoever they may apply to are playing in the Premiership! Hernandez is a complete and utter disgrace imo! Anderson we have yet to see the best of hopefully, but for £40m, I hope so, yes good stats for Lazio, but again that’s not the Premiership, my first thought was, if he’s that good why wasn’t others in the Premiership prepared to pay £40m!
Wilshere, well it was inevitable how he was going to turn out, was I the only one to foresee it? Utter disgrace giving him a 3 year contract and yet letting a future possible star in Rice stay in limbo about his future with us which he has proven brilliantly that he can cope at the top level in the Premiership! and we should also award Diangana a massive rise to keep him! Yes we have made several very good signings in Diop, Balbuena and especially Fabianski, Yarmelenko has been unfortunate, so we have to wait and see on him? I honestly believe that get out clauses should be inserted in contracts when over a certain wage is being paid that the contract can be terminated after say a year, if they don’t like it, don’t sign them! It is sucking the finances of clubs. Lanzini should have been tied up with a large increase long before his injury, yet another comparison of a proven Premiership player that has been overlooked on wages by has beens or never have beens!
