Hi fellas AS said before it's best to keep quiet whilst we try and make ourselves safe it was a very respectable performance at Chelsea and 4 points may now be enough especially in view of the fixtures between some of the relegation rivals Earlier on when other sites where saying we were just about to sign Fredericks I said NOT and this is still the case and now along with that Cairney and their man between the sticks at Fulham have been told that should they gain promotion they will match any wage and contract offers made by WH Moyes is now aware of this there is an element of truth in one or two rumours but best to keep quiet in the main until after the stoke game IRONMIKE.

Any truth that Sam Allardyce is interested in Cresswell? Anyone else thin that we should go for Jay Rodriguez and/ or Charlie Austin if Southampton and West Brom go down. Then there is Bertrand, Ward prowse to name but a few. I'd also suggest that its time to overhaul our back line and build it around Declan Rice. Zabaletta will obviously be released as will Evra so we need full backs and maybe that's why we are looking at fredericks. More punch is needed from Midfield so I'd also suggest we let Kouyate go along with a few others.

Didnt zaba sign a two year deal?

09 Apr 2018 10:00:01
Hi Phil

I dont think Big Scam will be at Everton come next season, as I said many a time his the Red Adair of the Prem and even when he has a settled appointment in my view he is a middle of the table Manager, I think the Everton board who clearly want to move forward have seen enough of his style to get rid, and I dont think he will get many Christmas cards from the Everton fans

Fredericks would be a good appointment as would Ward Prowse but unsure on Austin.

Im not so sure that Moyes will be there next season, I know the DGS want him as Mike has told us, but I dont know if he wants to stay, I personally think he would settle us for a couple seasons and we would not be in this position with his own players, but will the fans want his style of play? . he has a get out of jail card at the moment in keeping us up, but once he brings in his style of players would it not be like when we had Big Scam?, the fans were hardly enthralled with how he set about things.

09 Apr 2018 11:25:54
Some great players in both teams I would like at West ham. but remember. number 1 why would they want to come to us and 2.we don't buy good players we loan over 32 yr olds.

09 Apr 2018 12:05:16
I'd like to think we'd keep zaba for another year, I think he's been pretty good this year and could help with his experience guiding a long term successor as well as giving the squad some leadership.

09 Apr 2018 13:30:40
Charlie Austin is a decent goal scorer and Jay Rodriguez is a useful player; but I wouldn’t want either of them.

Of the teams at the bottom that might be gone come the end of the season, all of them have a couple of players I’d look at signing come the seasons end.

Ben Foster
Johnny Evans
Jake Livermore

Jack Butland
Kevin Wimmer
Bruno Martins Indi
Ryan Shawcross
Xherdan Shaqiri
Mame Biram Diouf

Fraser Forster
Cedric Soares
Ryan Bertrand
Wesley Hoedt
James Ward-Prowse
Mario Lemina
Nathan Redmond
Dusan Tadic

Now obviously I am not saying I’d sign all those players, but I think one or two of them would be decent additions to our squad.

09 Apr 2018 15:00:34
Agreed mate. I like ward prowse. Think lemina will be be off to a bigger club.

09 Apr 2018 16:05:03
I forgot about Fraser Forster. Good goalie just had a poor defence in front of him. I would like to hope whoever our manager is next season that they revamp our back line because ours looks aged and out of sorts. Build the back line around RICE and invest in decent full backs.

09 Apr 2018 16:49:07
I would love shaquiri here he would be great and could help make Antonio up his game once his injuries clear up.

09 Apr 2018 17:31:17
Sorry die4 but Butland is about the only player who would be an improvement on the list all the others except maybe Shaquiri are why WBA SAINTS AND STOKE are where they are.

09 Apr 2018 19:42:46
There is a reason why those 3 clubs are likely to go down and they all suffer from a massive lack of goals. Wouldn’t touch the likes of Rodriguez, Austin, Long etc.

09 Apr 2018 21:42:17
Shaquiri, Butland, Evans, Livermore, Bertrand.

The rest can jog on.

10 Apr 2018 00:28:14
Evans, forster, butland, tadic, bertrand, lamina and shawcross i'd take no bother. shaquiri too inconsistent for me for the money we would prob have to fork out, his brilliance more of a flash in the pan than something that could be relied on week in week out. don't think any of the rest would be a marked improvement on what we have already got and would just be squad players mainly. would take shane long too because of his work ethic, the perfect impact sub if chicharito leaves.
evans and shawcross would be a big step up from what we have atm. both with too much premier league experience! if cresswell does leave to go home to liverpool, bertrand is prob like for like or an improvement. get that young fella fredericks from fulham and we might just breathe some life into our back four!
honourable mentions to rondon, livermore, chadli, ward-prowse, redmond, romeu, joe allen, diouf. wouldn't set the world on fire for me as they wouldn't improve us particularly but would take them as if the price was right and some of the current hammers squad should see the exit door.

04 Apr 2018 10:12:33
Hi fellas AS said before Moyes is probably the most pro active manager we have had certainly for watching live games Whilst we played well Saturday we remain at least 5 points away from where we need to be So although much planning has been done we remain money wise inactive it cannot be any other way at present I have learnt some more about those plans but it would' be foolish to discuss them whilst we are in a state of limbo let's all hope we can get busy after the next couple of fixtures IRONMIKE.

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Apr 2018 12:39:46
Fingers crossed mike.

06 Apr 2018 06:42:31
Any comment Mike on whether those plans seem good, bad, or indifferent.

From a rumours perspective we seem quite focussed on the Championship.

06 Apr 2018 09:50:13
Until the club knows what the league position will be stubbo, I think they really are stuck in limbo .

09 Apr 2018 11:35:50
I truly believe we need six players next season out NOBLE, KOUYATE HAVE TO BE SOLD the back line and midfield plus one striker is badly needed and I'd cash in on LANZINI I'm waiting for another barrage from non football brains.

09 Apr 2018 21:45:22
Trouble with "cashing in" on Lanzini, unless he has a stellar World Cup, we just would be losing someone from the squad who is good enough when we have so many who aren't, without getting the amount of cash needed to truly reshape the squad.

If it was 70 to 80m which gets a team like is 3 or 4 upgrades then fine, but suspect we'd do well to get more than 30, and that wpuldnt move us forward at all.

29 Mar 2018 13:31:11
Just read that Smolov wants to join West Ham before the World Cup, (it will obviously have to be some sort of agreement as the window isn't open yet) I also get the feeling it wouldn't bother him what league we're in, and for £13m (the price quoted) even that would be affordable in the championship.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Mar 2018 14:21:41
We wait and see stevie, is there a loan or freebie option :)

31 Mar 2018 07:49:23
We’ll get him don’t worry, Putin is financing the deal so he can secretly top up his diplomats😄😄.

31 Mar 2018 09:23:01
I back Putin to be out next owner :)

29 Mar 2018 08:11:14
HI fellas WELL and unfortunately Spurs are now in contact with Norwich re Maddison. It was waiting to happen and because of our perilous state there's nothing at present we can do DGS are looking at Marcel Brands at PSV they fancy adding him to staff. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2018 09:43:13
Tell me something new? This sounds a like a recording of previous deals gone by where we've not bought a player for one reason or another (normally because we can't get the player for £4m) and then a club with real intent comes along and offers the asking price and this is the difference between premier league clubs and us!

29 Mar 2018 11:16:31
This time phil I think it’s more of our predicament in the league that’s the problem, ( self inflicted ) . Going to be hard todo anything until we know if we stay up or go down . What sort of players can we attract or afford . It’s all bloody miserable mate 👎👎.

29 Mar 2018 13:21:41
If we go down then Gold and Sulivan have to make us the Man City of the championship and get the best players possible for that league, but let's hope it doesn't come to that and we can get another couple of wins and the odd draw to keep us up.

29 Mar 2018 17:42:22
I wouldn't trust those two to make us the Man City of the National league. I have had a gut feeling since the start of the season we would go down. hope I'm wrong obviously, if we do. we will have to strengthen considerably as it's harder now than ever to get out of.

29 Mar 2018 18:21:20
Maybe we misunderstood! When they said top six side they meant in a different league! Oh I get it now 😁.

30 Mar 2018 13:13:31
Same league as they left Birmingham Jason 😃.

26 Mar 2018 06:48:22
Hi fellas loads of nonsense flying about on our club DS finances although the monies talked about are a fortune in the lives of our supporters these types of avoidance issues are everyday in the world of business and means nothing to our club Next Bamba WH have at present dropped out whilst Inter and Anderlrcht move in Scouts have watched Igor I Coronado at Palermo there is almost nothing tangible happening for all the obvious reasons so newspapers are inventing stories we are going to need some points first then we can get talking On Moyes 6 players to keep it will be no surprise that Rice is on that list IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Mar 2018 07:33:20
I wonder how a team in this much trouble can have a manager telling 85% of his team they are not good enough to play for him and that they will all be replaced if they stay up. I am sorry but for anyone with a ounce of clue about management knows Moysey is just as big a problem as the players if not bigger because he doesn't motivate them and give them confidence but quite the opposite going by what have been said for weeks about him keeping only 5-6 players next season, his ego is massive considered he has never achieved anything in his Managerial career other than getting sacked left, right and center. I fear for West Ham.

26 Mar 2018 08:36:46
Nostradamus, you are making a very valid point on your post. It will do no players confidence any good if he knows he is on the “out list” unless it suits him? The only thing I can say say which may sound perverse is, does Moyes think that this might actually motivate some players to prove him wrong? Also Moyes did have an 11 year stint at Everton without being sacked! I will say however if we had the luxury of choosing managers before he was offered the job, he wouldn’t have been my choice, but beggars can’t be choosers, simple as that? Some fans appear in my opinion to be deluded about our club, we have done nothing for years, got great supporters, pay big wages, but we are are losers unfortunately. Big, big, changes needed at board level to revitalise the club before it’s to late, lack of ambition by the board as long as the £££ is roiling in. How I envy the likes of even Burnley what an inspiration Dyche is on a shoestring budget, also Brighton, Palace, Swansea all playing far better than us collectively! Motivation throughout the club needed, it’s been a holiday camp it seems to me for far to long, to many on the “gravy train”.

26 Mar 2018 13:10:26
Gt read and and I agree with Chelmsfod views I think WH has been to much of a gravy train and I also agree that Moyes is trying to motivate the players by telling them that they are not playing to their potential Look at Snoddy at A/ Villa a complete different player than what he was at WH I also agree that if they don't shape up a good clear out is is needed. We don't need another manager let him sink or swim but atleast give him a chance. We need a strong manager who is not afraid to tell a player he's needs to improve or look for another club. If players are not good enough then get rid of them but don't look at the players only let's look at the plonkers who brought them to our club. I also like to remind the owners that they might own the club but without supporters they have club.

27 Mar 2018 12:45:04
Concerning Moyes, at the beginning of March I had a heart ablation and my Surgeon was a massive Everton fan, according to this surgeon apparently (and I do not remember) Everton one season had a disastrous start to the season and Moyes could not pinpoint the reason, as the players looked miserable and just didn't seem interested even at the start of season, they bought in a sports physiologist which was a good friend of this surgeon and apparently it was Moyes own body language and how miserable he also seemed to be which was rubbing off on certain players,

Moyes was informed of this and he started to lighten up which in turn saw results improve and they went on the have a good season,

Obviously this could be total rubbish but could it actually be Moyes and the way he goes about things and how he treats players could be relaying itself back to the players in a negative way, especially if he constantly telling players to improve all the time, of course not main reason but he does come across as a miserable git and it could be a factor.!

Lets hope Moyes in Florida got to know his players a little personally, rather than walk around looking like his lost a tenner and found a penny.

27 Mar 2018 16:24:17
I think to be truthful Tony gale speak sense when he says our entire squad needs a complete overhaul and he is absolutely right EXCEPT our manager needs the financial backing to go after the players HE wants and he needs to be supported. I see in the rumours today Norwich City are understood to want £25million for James Maddison to depart the club this summer! Which means that we will probably offer about £3.27 with payments spread over the next 20 years. I would also suggest we go get Cairney £25m from Fulham and a holding defensive midfielder in Dendoncker at £20m. That's a cool £70m to start with. We can sell most of the squad for about 10p and start over with hungry talented young players and offload those that have under performed for far to long. I would keep edmilson fernandes and Asanovich and the rest would be offloaded.

28 mar 2018 20:16:57
i can't even think about players at the moment because if we don't beat saints and stoke i'm afrail our premiership status is is almost done depending on other results because palaces run in is the easiest of all down the bottom and all the people thinking or dreaming city will have rapped up title and advanced through further in champions league are barking up the wrong tree because 1,pep doesn't like losing and 2,a patched up team with 5 or 6 first teamers would beat us the way we are performing. coyi.

24 Mar 2018 03:51:20
Hi ed if u dnt post this tell the boys we are linked with marega, he has told me we have been in touch. I used 2 play with him and a close friend . He has everything to be a great player but his composure is awful to say the least and in any other than prem I believe he would be success but no at West Ham United if we stay up . And that's a big IF.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2018 12:04:20
LANZINI scored for Argentina last night in a 2-0 win against Italy. COYI.

18 Mar 2018 16:57:53
Hearing Liverpool interested in dendonker to replace can guess that ship has sailed for us.

{Ed002's Note - Not true, they have not made any approach.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2018 01:14:03
Hi fellas WH trying to sort out years loan for Yetry Mina from Barcelona it's subject to a load of ifs starting with us still being in premier league spurs gone cold Whatever happens now we are going to fall behind in transfer business as the safe clubs already starting business IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Mar 2018 10:37:49
Luckily there aren't many safe clubs.

16 Mar 2018 11:31:23
That makes a change LOAN Deal! Of course they wouldn't want to have to reach into their pockets would they?

16 Mar 2018 15:17:32
Phil Barcelona only signed him in January this year for €10m and he's only played 1 game obvious loan deal to give him experience the same we do with our youngsters

If we can get him for a season and he is as good as he is supposed to be then all the better for us.

{Ed002's Note - He would need a work permit and I don't know how he would qualify for one.}

16 Mar 2018 16:57:23
Agreed ed, seems a non starter.

{Ed002's Note - It is tied to the arrival of Arthur, which was meant to be January 2019 (an English side negotiating for him were told that) but if he were to arrive in the summer he would need to leave one way or the other due to non-EU quotas. But that would also mean they would have to buy or loan another CB to provide cover.}

16 Mar 2018 18:59:29
Arthur who? Watched Mina live against Getafe, unit!

{Ed002's Note - Melo.}

16 Mar 2018 22:19:47
Mina looked very good against getafe beast. Who was the english club eds for arthur was it liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant but certainly not Liverpool.}

17 Mar 2018 22:15:46
we have to beat SAINTS AND STOKE at home and scrap for points with other games hopefully CITY will still be in champions league and already won league and they might field a second eleven (I know it's against the rules but u nknow what I mean) and our last game at home is winable but I think WEST BROMWICH STOKE AND EITHER US HUDDERSFIELD SAINTS OR SWANSEA because PALACE gave got an easier run in also NEWCASTLE but it's going to be tight . COYI.

17 Mar 2018 21:53:53
typicallaway business once again see this is the problem if true we are chasing a player who is very unlikely to get a work permit great work again it's blatantly obvious we need a director of football but the world and his wives know it comes down to the same old thing MONEY MONEY MONEY which sullivan is not willing to spend the way this club is being run is so amateurish it's bordering on embarrassing it beggers belief how they made their fortune but there's enough perverted men around for them to be successful with no comebacks or questions asked but now things have changed and they've made promises to thousands of people and they've been found out as the BRUMMIES SAID YOU WERE WARNED. COYI.

18 Mar 2018 14:16:54
Exactly and they are always looking for the cheap option. Sick of them all.

18 Mar 2018 18:32:04
Let’s see where we finish phil and then see what impact a DOF makes, if we are to ‘ rebuild ‘ then let’s see where that leads . This summer the pressure on the owners to invest will be immense and I’m hoping for some good things . ( I know phil I’m optimistic as allways 😀)

24 Mar 2018 04:31:38
1 more season and a lot will be revealed.

15 Mar 2018 05:08:22
Hi Oxford two way stretch exactly as you have mentioned bear in mind this player overrates himself and thinks he's first name on team sheet quality all at WH don't agree Hugill not up to Prem level at present however has power and self belief the boy could make it next season and If we drop down will be in the first team squad. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2018 08:43:40
They said the same about Antonio.

17 Mar 2018 21:57:44
And the fames gone to ANTONIUS head he looks more like a body builder than a footballer goes on mad runs and is burnt out puffing and blowing for 5 mind he cannot keep up at full pace for 90 min he's totally overweight and unfit in my opinion and I'd cash in on him why he's at the right side of thirty. COYI.
