So, immediately after the Fornals coup, MP and H are pushing our interest in both Maxi and Joan.

I think things will move quickly this week.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 17:22:06
I see the Mancs have apparently offered £45m + an unknown player to us for Issa Diop - hope it doesn't un settle him - and tell the Mancs to get lost.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 17:26:55
Pretty sure that’s just media hot air. I can’t imagine why we’d consider selling DR when MP and H are clearly intent on building a vibrant young side.

15 Jun 2019 17:37:33
What player could they honestly offer us
that could even tempt us
Both utter crap
They can gives us rashford plus money

15 Jun 2019 17:14:22
So Man Utd want Diop and are willing to pay £45m plus a player, question is which player?

{Ed004's Note - Youll know better than me. How good is he? Or whats his potential like. You can have any of our back line except De Gea, Lindelof and Shaw}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 17:28:07
No thanks, 04. We’ll keep him for now.

{Ed004's Note - I don't see him leaving West Ham this summer tbh. Hes about the 60th player we have been linked with so far}

15 Jun 2019 20:51:35
It is the season for silliness ed :)

17 Jun 2019 23:49:32
If Utd are set on signing him, they'll get him imo.

It's all a bit of a Rio Ferdinand flashback moment to be honest. Leeds wanted him and came up with a then record amount to sign him and *poof* he was gone.

We hasn't changed as a club that much in the last 19 years I'm afraid, so we'll always be vulnerable to losing our best young players to bigger teams, Issa Diop and Declan Rice are no exceptions - although I think Rice will stay for a couple more years at least, not sure Diop's got the same kind of connection with the club and may find it a bit easier to walk away - pure speculation on my part of course!

As for a swap? Nah it's alright thanks, I wouldn't want any of the Utd CB's but would be reasonably happy if £60M were to actually come our way for Diop. We could then move for someone like Maripan and have a large wedge left over to continue strengthening the squad.

Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather Diop stays as he'll develop in to a CB as good as anyone, anywhere in any league but at the end of the day. money talks.

17 Jun 2019 23:36:58
I think the defender that we have asked for is ERIC BAILLY any thoughts ED. COYI.

{Ed004's Note - I am not sure what to think of Bailly anymore. Was brilliant in his first season and looked like he could go on to be a top cb. Really his only massive flaw was he was quite rash. However, hes been a disaster injury wise since and ridiculously inconsistent. His first game back vs Liverpool after a long injury he was immense and doing Zidane roulettes and then the next he was a disaster. There could be a potentially brilliant cb there but his mentality and reading of the game might restrict that. He is a phenomenal athlete. One of our quickest players. Dont think he will have been offered though. Would guess it was Rojo}

15 Jun 2019 13:28:28
Sky sports claiming westham have offer accepted for maxi Gomez 29m with add ons, Valencia have also had bid accepted . please plz plz.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 14:04:19
Yes but only to make up the numbers never going to win it
Would be a great signing for us fingers cross that London and our salary can persuade him.

15 Jun 2019 14:26:30
Also reporting that we have made a 13m bid for Joan Jordan.

Hope Gomez picks us he can be our main man up top for many years he might struggle for game time at Valencia certainly less competition for that spot here.

Imagine if we do actually get all our business done early hats off to husillios and Pellegrini and Sullivan of course ;)

15 Jun 2019 15:17:16
Belbuena, Lanzini and Fornals all speak Spanish which helps. But what a great capture Fornals is, to add Gomez is the icing on the cake. Lanzini, Anderson, Yarmalenko, Antonio, Fornals, Wilshire are all quality attacking midfielders, most of those would get into any top 6 side.

15 Jun 2019 13:28:21
Sky just said Celta Vigo av accepted ours
and Valencia bid of 29 million and now
down to the player.
Valencia can offer him champions league
which could persuade him to join them.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 09:36:52
What are all these reports saying there’s an issue with Lanzini because he wants more money? If we want to renew his contract ( his current one expires at the end of next season) then negotiate. Make the offer we are happy with and if he won’t take it, mov3 him on. We are definitely in a far stronger negotiating position now we’ve signed Fornals. Though, I must admit, I am excited by the prospect of Wilshere, Lanzini, Fornals and Anderson being in the same side.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jun 2019 20:53:30
Agreed mate we on paper could have a serious midfield.

14 Jun 2019 12:13:21
fornals is official. great signing.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Jun 2019 12:41:51
Absolute agree hardcorehammer

Welcome to the club Pablo - you won't regret it!

14 Jun 2019 12:55:15
i hope this trend continues no board coming out and saying we are trying they just got it done. happy hammer today haha.

14 Jun 2019 13:13:01
Yes 100%, board are being very quiet and it is brilliant :-)

14 Jun 2019 13:33:49
More signings like this please, and I can see us doing a Leicester, now wouldn’t that be nice 👍.

{Ed002's Note - This will work out very well I hope.}

14 Jun 2019 14:57:41
so was fornals all down to husillos ed. i'm seeing a lot of reports saying it was his target.

14 Jun 2019 15:11:06
Fingers crossed ed.

15 Jun 2019 09:02:47
Cheers ed - read a few of the Spanish reports and they are flabbergasted he went for such a 'small' fee.

14 Jun 2019 07:29:49
Good luck Slav at WBA, wish him all the best, 👍 Also good to hear Kevin Keen returning to coach Academy youngsters, always a good underrated dedicated professional imo. 👍👍.

Agree6 Disagree0

14 Jun 2019 21:18:03
Me too, hope slaves does well. The snake let him down and he never recovered. Such a shame as liked him.

15 Jun 2019 07:16:29
Glen, I really thought when we appointed Slav he would take us up to a different level in the Premiership with his National managerial and overseas experience, I was quite surprised he didn’t target some of his countrymen who are nearly all warriors? I read a quote after he was sacked reportedly said by Noble “He was to soft on us” that can be interpreted several ways, but that said to me, there were players taking the p—s, whether that was shirking, training, injuries or whatever, but to me that reflected badly on the the whole team being unprofessional! As the old saying goes “give some people an inch, then they take a mile” even when they are on £4m per year, but more than that they were in some ways deceiving the fans that are paupers by their standards and were cheating them!

13 Jun 2019 14:23:32
Been a few rumours on twitter re: Balotelli.
As he is available on a free, I would be tempted to take him, anyone else?

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Jun 2019 16:08:15
Glen, too disruptive for me👎.

13 Jun 2019 18:31:39
Sort of player that would become a cult hero, better than anything we have, has worked with Pellegrini before I'd give him a go to be honest.

13 Jun 2019 19:44:31
Anything in this one, ed?

{Ed002's Note - No - he is working on best options in Italy, not England.}

13 Jun 2019 20:05:08
I’m in two minds. There’s no doubting his ability and on a free, it sounds almost too good to miss, but he is a nutcase and has a history with Arnie of being the Chuckle Brothers.

It could be an MP master stroke, but it could go t*ts up.

14 Jun 2019 07:15:02
Been re-thinking the Balotelli rumour after looking at poster comments and now have changed my mind🤣 As Marko says could actually be a master stroke by P and H👍Wow! What a draw he would be to the ⚒⚒ fans, he could get us really buzzing or we could end up with 10 men quite often😂 but yeh really think we should go for him now if possible as long as he has no dodgy injury history, would get tongues wagging here that’s for sure and put bums on seats which the 2 Daves will love£££👍 also he could fuel Arnie into actually getting involved more as Arnie thinks he’s the natural number 1 up front and might not want to be outdone!

14 Jun 2019 09:45:50
I would love it but posters are spot on, has a bit of an attitude problem.
Thats a shame eds, would really like him at WH (although, didn't he and Arnie have problems at Milan? )

{Ed002's Note - He had lots of problems at Milan but I don't recall specifics.}

14 Jun 2019 21:57:09
41 league goals in 76 games over the past 3 seasons and that includes him having his obligatory hissy fit during one of them. Available on a free? Complete no brainer, instantly becomes the best CF the club's had for years and he's still only 28. Pros outweigh the cons in my eyes.

12 Jun 2019 14:59:13
West Ham sites are saying deal done for Fornals btw.
Sources seem disparate in the transfer fee, anywhere from 24mE to 30m£.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 22:44:40
If true then surely Lanzini will head out?

13 Jun 2019 10:15:02
Someone disagreed - so do they/ you think if Fornals comes in Lanzini won’t be on the way out? I asked as a question as interested in views but just disagreeing doesn’t help. I can’t see how Fornals and Lanzini play in the same side and rumours suggest Lanzini wants out so interested in views.

13 Jun 2019 10:47:43
I think fornals will play in a deeper position.

13 Jun 2019 11:20:35
Both are skilful dribblers with an eye for the killer pass. Fornals crossing seems top class from the clips I’ve seen and he is two footed.

I could certainly see Anderson, Lanzini and Fornals as both wingers and a 10 in any combination.

The other important point is that MP is building a squad, not just a 1st XI.

13 Jun 2019 11:41:43
Personally, I think playing Fornals deeper would be a waste of his talents.

I'd like to see us play 4-2-3-1 with Anderson, Fornals and Antonio being the 3.

Rotate in Lanzini and Yarmolenko when their both fit as well and I think we've got a solid pick of players to choose from.

13 Jun 2019 12:43:50
I'd like to think Fornals is more of a replacement for Noble in the long run than Lanzini

Sitting slightly deeper and upping the tempo with the transition from defence to attack with Lanzini sitting behind Arnie

Just my thoughts.

13 Jun 2019 13:18:00
Its about being able to rotate the team and coiver for injuries fornals and lanzuni won't be in the same starting team one will be on the bench coyis.

13 Jun 2019 14:22:46
Fornals is a bit like Wilshere, attack minded with a good pass. Reckon Pellegrini will play with what he has but try and keep Wilshere/ Rice/ Fonrals as a Midfield with Wilshere/ Fornals taking turns attacking.

13 Jun 2019 15:56:03
Formation we played the most last season according to whoscored and I'd probably agree is 4141. So Rice sitting in front of the back four with snodgrass and Noble infront of him. Maybe Pellegrini is wanting to upgrade those two men just ahead of rice one more defensively capable and one more attacking to alternate with what we have.

That would give us a very strong midfield and would explain why we have been linked with so many in the centre.

14 Jun 2019 09:46:52
Forgot we had Snoddy! Maybe he is the one going to leave?
