Article in Daily Star (yes I know) stating Sully is going to delegate transfer dealings from now on and improve scouting, any truth to this?
ps. thought we were excellent yesterday, all hernandez needed was to start with quality behind him :-)

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Feb 2018 10:27:00
Let’s s hope he dos let go and get an expert in! And not just give the job to jack :)

11 Feb 2018 11:00:15
Yep, Sullivan video on official site in which he says complete restructuring of player recruitment and then they are trying hard to make things better!

11 Feb 2018 12:36:12
This must mean that tabor is coming in .

11 Feb 2018 14:02:17
It's just more bull to stop the march, only a complete idiot would have more revenue, less running costs and manage to spend less money.

11 Feb 2018 15:06:27
I do believe it's talk to appease the fans we can only wait and see I just want to see performances on the pitch and points on the bored we don't need no march yet.

the plan also states the manager has to see the players live and they must have been scouted 5-6times. they better get started moyes will be very busy and should be going to games right away like we seen in January. this is all good but when we decide we want a player we have to be willing to get the deal done yes of course you haggle. but please no derisory offers and dragging transfers out a lot longer than they need to be maybe you pay more than you wanted to but it's better than losing out, panic buying having a thin squad struggling in the league then having to invest in January when prices are inflated anyway. you may aswell have just coughed up in the summer.

let's hope Michael tabor can get on board aswell for extra financial backing.

we do have a good first 11 but we must look to improve to help retain our best players. also want us to see us sign young quality players. really build a strong team for now and the future.

11 Feb 2018 15:56:30
Hes said he'll delegate the player scouting and identification.

Who do we all think is still going to be doing the price negotiation with other clubs? No way will he delegate the actual deal making.

Which means we'll be slower and more methodical identifying our targets, and equally hopeless at then getting them over the line.

Also begs the question how we'll sign anyone in the Summer when the manager won't have any games to go and see players at.

11 Feb 2018 16:07:38
Amongst the million questions that the possibility of m tabours possible money injection raises, is one of more better ( followed by loads more lol ) would you insist on a director of football to deal with all transfer dealings? . I hope so.

11 Feb 2018 22:41:43
Cheera for replies guys @jasonb, I agree wholeheartedly with you.
A DoF is urgently required as Sully seems to have burnt his bridges with a fair few clubs. Knowing the right palm to grease/ shoulder to rub is soooo important unless you have 100s of millions to spend.

12 Feb 2018 08:57:44
Its a move in the right direction bringing in a DOF but are we dreaming to think the chuckle bros. will let someone else handle our transfers.

10 Feb 2018 20:01:39
Quiet on here tonight thought we were good today and thought Ginger was man of the match

Come on Mr Moyes contract extension please.

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Feb 2018 20:28:15
Agree Ginge is definitely worth another year.

10 Feb 2018 21:36:16
Ginge and oggy were good, but ARNIE was outstanding!

09 Feb 2018 03:57:03
Hi fellas for what' it's worth Nasri is in talks with Palace IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2018 11:19:43
He would do ok if they can get him fit. Obvious replacement for Zaha whilst he is injured. Reckon he could have done a half decent job for us and again, until seasons end might have been a good move and if he does well offer a longer contract but never mind, one mans loss and all that.

09 Feb 2018 03:55:10
Hi fellas the soon to be shown short film starring David Sullivan who will be throwing around all the normal excuses etc THE one important subject he doesn't touch on is WH are now becoming a poisoned chalice to all but youngsters finding there way has beens who have lost there way and those wishing to use WH as s shop window or stepping stone it'a club most are looking to avoid this is not touched on MR Sullivan you must take a back seat you can't be the head cook and bottle washer it's making the club a laughing stock IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2018 08:35:38
A Film Mike?,

Will it be like North Korea, with i'm for Ever Blowing Bubble players in the background and DGS and Brady standing in the stands as the team goose step on the pitch to like a military parade? with hoards of hired actors playing the role of fans waving claret and blue hankies as the parade goes on?

Propaganda Propaganda and more Propaganda!

09 Feb 2018 09:21:11
It would make a brilliant u tube h*** take once DS video comes out, if someone could mock it as mentioned above, it would go viral in days lol lol, I can just imagine the spoof video now.

09 Feb 2018 09:41:03
And here we go again, With it being reported that West Ham are set to move for Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts in the summer, the tabloids reported on Thursday that we are set to battle Leicester City for Roberts to see who could secure his signature in a £15million deal. Come off it! We all know fine well what's going to happen. This story will rage on and on. We'll offer £3m with add ons and Leicester will jump straight in with £15m OR we will talk, mull, ponder and consider for weeks and on deadline day decide against it or continue to offer ridiculously low bids OR because our price won't be met we will target somebody on a free who is 54 years old. We've been here and done this for the last god knows how many windows.

09 Feb 2018 09:57:35
Phil, I don't know why they are considering what players to bid for in the summer as we don't know what league we are going to be in?

09 Feb 2018 10:06:16
Spot on phil.

08 Feb 2018 14:47:05
Surely we've got to pick up Song. there's rumours floating about, he's on a free and he's training up the road with Arsenal. In light of the current situation regarding injuries and our poor transfer window its a no brainer for me as long as he's fit. He knows the club and a lot of the players having had a stint with us before and especially in he's first season he was one of the best centre mids I've seen playing in the Claret and Blue in recent years. Were light in that area and if we've got Evra in for the rest of the season as another body then no doubt we should do the same with Song.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Feb 2018 16:01:19
I would take him and nasri on similar sort of deal to evras.

08 Feb 2018 17:29:05
Woz/ Al, got to agree, with Song and Nasri comment, possibly underlying reason? Never understood why Slav let Tomkins go to Palace, he wasn’t to a lot of fans taste but still thought he was a good squad player with plenty of experience and waded in with the odd goal!

08 Feb 2018 18:49:13
Go get the pair of them as soon as possible. Attitude they may have but it's players with character we need just get them fit and they could do a job at least till seasons end and then review them. If they do a good job then keep them on it's a win win situation.

08 Feb 2018 19:13:01
both probably still command high wages. where as evra is 36 and kung fu kicked a fan.

hopefully they would both be willing to take a wage drop. maybe some kind of short deal with the option to extend.

nasri was very good at Sevilla. we know what song is capable off arguably lost his legs he was good for us but went off the boil under slav.

08 Feb 2018 20:48:47
Evra's apparently on £75 grand a week, It'd probably be a similar amount for Song and double that for Nasri. Sully would have a FFP induced heart attack if he were to sign those two!

08 Feb 2018 21:59:00
depends what you believe Billy, mike said 25k add ons. papers and exwestham said 75k. I know who I would rather believe mikes info is usually spot on. if he is on soo much sulli baffles me really dropped the ball this transfer window oh and the one before that and emm the one before that too.

07 Feb 2018 18:38:56
Hi fellas new office being put in above existing ones the stairs going up to it will take us to the next level IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Feb 2018 19:16:59
Is that Cryptic Mike? DOF or a sale or investment from Tabour.

07 Feb 2018 21:30:42
Sounds like Mike's taking up comedy!

08 Feb 2018 12:54:31
Mike do you think that the club can be saved with Sullivan and Gold still as owners or do we need to bring in outside expertise and or money?

08 Feb 2018 14:23:43
What I'd like to know is, has the board found a new way of conducting business by brining in Free agents. We got Evra who according to reports can last 30 mins, we are after Opre and I also hear we may be after Alex Song?

08 Feb 2018 14:34:14
Its the new tactic Phil to take us to the next level, the loan players didn't seem to work so were working on getting players with no contract and bringing them in for free, plus the beauty is we can sign all year round. its clever . very clever lol lol lol lol lol :)

08 Feb 2018 14:59:57
And cheap!

08 Feb 2018 19:07:02
The championship is the next level, a level down.

09 Feb 2018 01:29:47
If this is a new tactic to take us to the next level, I hope they install lifts 'cos all this lot are too old to use the stairs!

09 Feb 2018 10:13:11
Hi JERSEY that is a real posibility that we will be in the championship and after a net spend last year of £4 mill the TROTTERS have gambled with our future and in a way I hope they get what they deserve but not at WEST HAM OUR FABULOUS CLUB THAT THEY ARE RUINING and Mike any more news on TABOR OUR SAVIOUR. COYI.

07 Feb 2018 15:23:59
Look like we've signed evra any idea of his wages
And do you know if there looking at song we need a dm.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2018 18:07:00
I would imagine quite high although although he is banned in France and probably other leagues till next season.

{Ed002's Note - No he is not.}

07 Feb 2018 18:08:24
25k plus appearance bits could run 28 k look he’s there now let’s get on with it IRONMIKE.

07 Feb 2018 18:29:25
fair wage hopefully he's planning on finishing his career on a high.

nasri is a quality player tidy on the ball very good passer attitude obviously a big problem and might not be what we need at this current time is a player with a bad attitude disturbing the team but such a short contract if acts up pay him off or leave him in reserves.

07 Feb 2018 19:44:30
I thought he was banned is it just France then?

{Ed002's Note - No, just Uefa games.}

07 Feb 2018 20:24:26
If they wear the shirt then I will always back them 👍welcome aboard the good ship ( albeit it leaky ) West Ham Evra, good luck ship mate arrrghhhhh. :)

08 Feb 2018 12:30:45
Ex said 75k per week . it's a big difference to 25k. I myself would have thought about 30k so I was surprised when ex said that on his radio show!

08 Feb 2018 13:46:07
Can’t see it, 75k daft money must be 25k.

06 Feb 2018 20:06:09
Hi fellas Moyes being placated with some freebies Caulker, what about Evra and Bassong says DGS Look we're desperate says Moyes OK let's get on the blower see who we can round up Anichebe is also on the loose IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Feb 2018 20:29:17
What about song.

06 Feb 2018 21:00:43
What about Samir Nasri.

06 Feb 2018 21:14:34
Caulker - No!
Evra - No.
Bassong. - Nooo!
Anichebe - No, no, no, no, no!

06 Feb 2018 21:18:52
We can't be that desperate, none of them would improve the squad, play the kids. Bassong, bloody hell.

06 Feb 2018 22:39:45
We moved from Upton Park so that we could sign Anichebe on a free. Wow.

06 Feb 2018 23:59:24
their is a reason they are free.

we should never have been in this position. everyone knew we needed to strengthen DM even before the obiang injury.

owners let us down there were players available they didn't have the balls now they are panicking in fear of relegation. they are useless stubborn old fools.

07 Feb 2018 00:57:55
is esra actually likely? He seems like zabaleta - proper professional.

07 Feb 2018 04:52:08
Tbh we could do a lot worse than evra.

{Ed001's Note - yeah you should be safe at the stadium, no way he will be able to cover the distance to kick any of the fans at your home ground! At his age he could never run that far.....

Though it should be remembered why he ended up in the position of attacking his one team's fans, it wasn't because he was playing well.}

07 Feb 2018 08:22:50
Surley if the DGS are doing that than really they are admitting there own downfall, if they go and get freebies now would be so so embarrassing for them and show them up for what a bunch of money grabbing tossers they are.

I hope we do bring in these freebies so we will be the laughing stock of the Prem, only than will these disillusioned Pro board fans realise what the rest of us know, they are NOT our knights in shinning armour.

07 Feb 2018 10:35:03
Sullivan has already broken another promise that we wouldn't sign players over 32 i'm begining to think his maths isn't up to scratch and rumour going round mike is we bid £13 mill for DENDONKER another lie. COYI.

07 Feb 2018 10:40:13
GKG66, it all one big lie, it how they run the business, it is a business to them not a passion which is the problem.

Not sure about the rumour as I think I read Mike said that it was not the fee but the £12m upfront they wanted, still its all water under the bridge as we got a loan and a championship striker.

07 Feb 2018 13:34:31
Evra = Good signing in my opinion.

Dont forget Masuaku is out for a number of weeks still.
Cresswell continues to play LCB with Evra at LWB
Massive dressing room voice and positive character.
Its only a 3 month contract - at least he is fit to play. Carroll has sponged more than that since November.

07 Feb 2018 14:35:58
Sam Inkersole got it spot on and is worthy of quoting:
"It's a scattergun approach behind the scenes and that is translating to the pitch as well as players are out of position, the unrest in the stands could be affecting them, even Michail Antonio has spoken out about the headlines in recent weeks. The squad more so than the fans needed the security of knowing re-inforcements were on their way.

"West Ham need a director of football, Sullivan needs to trust that person to get the right players in and not be so hands on with transfers. It's unlikely to happen in the near future and if the club survive in the top flight this season, this circus will roll around again".

07 Feb 2018 18:07:49
Eds what was the reason he judo kicked a fan?

{Ed001's Note - he was getting abuse off the fans because his form was terrible, he was not working hard on the pitch and was producing his stupid videos on social media still. Fans there felt he was more interested in arsing about than playing football, so he became the target of all the fans ire, even in games they won. It didn't help that the videos were often inflammatory.

Anyway, yet another crap half-arsed performance from him saw him getting stick so he picked a fight with them.}

07 Feb 2018 19:46:26
the perfect attitude hahaha.

06 Feb 2018 17:52:40
IronMike - Please tell me there's no truth in the Patrice Evra rumour that's doing the rounds on Twitter this evening?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2018 18:24:37
The way cresswell has been playing it's not that bad but surely we need midfielders?

06 Feb 2018 18:52:21
Its 100% true i'm afraid another one with a serious ego we just got rid of SAKHO.

06 Feb 2018 19:16:08
I wonder if it was moyes choice or a Sullivan special? We still need midfielders?

06 Feb 2018 19:48:40
I knew we would go for him . He's over 35 and would be cheap.

06 Feb 2018 20:30:52
And he’s expensive.

07 Feb 2018 10:36:50
Another washed up player on 100,000 a week when will we learn ARBELOA all over again. COYI.

07 Feb 2018 14:48:51
Patrick Evra - you have to laugh that's it it's just dawned on me this isn't David Sullivan it's John Sullivan and an old script for FOOLS and HORSES

got me there still made me giggle.

08 Feb 2018 00:41:36
An evra with a point to prove may not be all bad.

06 Feb 2018 00:29:32
Hi fellas AS I posted Moyes is very dissapointed with the window it's a real shame DGS have undervalued this guy Moyes is used to working inside a tight budget and getting a strong unit together but he's got to have a nucleus to do it the injury list done so much damage and the window killed it off he's not had a real chance in my view I have a feeling DGS are going to regret this and they should do whatever they can to keep him I Future managers well roll out the usual suspects it's getting disheartening IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree3

06 Feb 2018 09:04:15
Whats the point MIKE? We have a half decent manager who quite rightly won;t put up with the way that our owners work. Any other manager that comes in will be treated exactly the same so who in the right minds will want the job whilst we have the current board in situ. Its a shame because he could have done a half decent job with proper backing and of course half the teams in Europe (OK, slight exaggeration) won't do business with us because of the way our board (and we all know who) behave. Very disappointed :- (.

06 Feb 2018 10:19:25
Is it true that Moyes categorically won't continue past the summer?

06 Feb 2018 11:03:10
I said weeks ago that we should not count on Moyes being here for next season, up or down. Quite honestly, I can't see why everyone thinks he's a good manager. Look at his past record: underachievement and failures, riddled with sackings. Again it's believing media hype that he's a good manager, much the same as Mark Hughes and Roy Hodgson. All the media and so-called pundits say they are good managers, but none have actually ever produced the goods. I am all in favour of giving Moyes a chance, but let's not create a miracle worker based on a few games. What our club desperately needs is a change of ownership, a director of football and a permanent manager with a proven track record. Sadly, it's too late to go back to Upton Park.

06 Feb 2018 12:09:22
moyes did great at everton and they still ain't moved in since he left utd he wasnt given his fair shot not to sure about spian as I didn't follow him there and sunderland was a lost cause from the start.

imo moyes has done brilliant with what he has had to work with so far. shame he is off in the summer I would rather keep him than gamble on someone new.

06 Feb 2018 13:02:58
board need to go! but now is not the time for protests the team is fragile as it is. need the fans to concentrate on getting behind the team.

06 Feb 2018 13:14:43
Great? He managed Everton for 11 years. The highest premiership position in all that time was 4th. The majority of the remainder, Everton can be described as a mid-table side. They were runners-up in the FA Cup in 2009. In other words, they won zilch. During Moyes' tenure, they were a boring team to watch in my opinion. How can that be described as great?
At Man Utd, he inherited one of the most talented and entertaining squads in the premiership. Described as "the chosen one", he reigned over a slide into almost obscurity. He had access to one of the largest kitties in transfer funds. In other words, he failed.
At Real Sociedad he managed them into relegation and was sacked. In other words, he failed.
At Sunderland he managed them into relegation, allegedly accusing the board of lying to him as an excuse. In other words, he failed.
In what language can that be described as "great" or even "satisfactory"? If that is what would satisfy you for West Ham, then that is your choice. Me? I've supported the Hammers since 1962, having had the privilege of witnessing the management of the great Ron Greenwood and 'gentleman' John Lyall. Moyes cannot hold a candle to those guys. Think back a couple of months to his appointment. The sighs were almost deafening. Nobody wanted him at the club. Now after instilling a bit of discipline and what could be described as a possible temporary upsurge, he's the best thing since sliced bread? I think not. Let's see what further results he produces first before creating him a saint. I, for one, am still extremely worried about our precarious position. I hope Moyes can pull a rabbit from his hat.
In his defence, he has to contend with one of the worst batch of owners this club has ever witnessed. Misinformation, interfering and a total lack of diplomacy seem to be the order of the day. We are in desperate need of a change at the top in my opinion. Reg Pratt must be spinning in his grave.
Of course these points are all just my opinion, but I cannot remember a time when, having been forced from our home, we were in such a desperate situation.

06 Feb 2018 13:19:25
I would say that what he achieved at Everton with a very limited budget was really impressive hence why he got the Manchester United job. However his managerial ability is not what is being questioned, it is the logic in announcing that he won't be here in the summer at a key point in the season, this could destabilize us yet further.

06 Feb 2018 14:00:08
I personally think that the Board already have Marco Silva or Rafa lined up. I wonder how they will feel when transfer window comes and the manager wants players cause our board are useless at recruiting.

06 Feb 2018 14:46:52
I said weeks ago that it would be wrong to assume Moyes would stay past this season even if he kept us up. People were forgetting that there are two sides to every contract and Moyes may not want to stay. I suspected then he was using West Ham United to make his own CV appear better by adding one success. Let's face it, his CV at the moment doesn't set the world alight. that would explain why he agreed to such a short term contract.
I can't agree with WH4ever that Moyes' Everton record was impressive. He was chosen by Alex Ferguson to succeed him at Manchester United as a result of his friendly relationship with Fergie, that's why Fergie recommended him in my opinion.
I do agree with philmac that the board have someone else already in mind. I'd love to see Sean Dyche at West Ham, but I doubt that will happen. I suppose it all depends on whether we manage to stay up and/ or whether DGS sell up or stay. We can't be the only ones who recognise our club is badly administered.
