Andre Gomez deal dead he may go to Everton isn't every player now? Gonalons is still alive. Barely -LLorente would have to be for zero as WH don't want to deal with spurs Maia could seal a last minute deal to Watford as could Sturaro IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:46:04
Why is the Gomes deal dead Mike? If Maia goes to Watford that is a big mistake from us.

09 Aug 2018 10:52:29
Massive anti climax. I personally am disappointed. Yes we have done good business but so have all the other clubs around us and I feel we’ve started well and now let teams even the playing field and maybe even overtake us. Hoping we get 1 or 2 more in and changes my mind.

09 Aug 2018 11:02:17
Would be very happy to get Gonalons, or another decent DM before the deadline.

Absolute NO to Llorente.

09 Aug 2018 11:15:17
Don’t want to be too negative but wonder if the plan is to play with 4 wide men and somehow hope we don’t leak goals. Seems we haven’t gotten the DM we need, nor a real striker.

09 Aug 2018 11:17:15
How can anyone be disappointed? We've signed 8 potential first XI players, and a world class manager!

Just because other clubs sign players too doesn't mean we have to sign more!

Llorente makes no sense. we have Chicharito, Arnie and Perez for likely one central role (plus Carroll still on the books) backed up by Anderson and Yarmalenko who have played that role too.

Sanchez in (since it's clear that's what is happening at CDM) and then if at all possible a centre back (given Reid's injury) is all that makes sense now.

An amazing window from us. Sold no one of note, strengthened all round.

Anyone who is 'disappointed' or expected more needs a reality check!

09 Aug 2018 11:24:42
Stubbo it’s just my opinion. We’ve done well but I think we really needed a strong CDM and that should’ve been the priority. Hopefully I am wrong as I’m sure MP knows a lot more than I do.

09 Aug 2018 11:24:43
I think the point you are missing Stubbo is the glaring weakness in our midfield which has been evident for 2-3 seasons. Nobody is saying we have had a bad window, we have had a great window, people are just saying that huge gap still exists, if anything we are maybe slightly weaker there after selling Kouyate.

09 Aug 2018 11:26:13
Well said completely agree a great window!

09 Aug 2018 11:27:47
Spot on Stubbo been a great window our squad is loads stronger than last year, we now have pace and strength in depth across the squad.

09 Aug 2018 11:28:46
Hope you are right, and will be pleased to be wrong but I can still see us leaking goals. But watching us since the early 70s maybe I’ve just become a pessimist.

09 Aug 2018 11:30:24

09 Aug 2018 11:33:01
Spot on Stubbo - we have spent 100m on quality players who will improve the team.
Only better thing would have been getting rid of deadwood but still fantastic.

09 Aug 2018 13:24:33
After a great start to transfer window and having signed great players, the end of this window has been disappointing. Everybody saying no to us and moving somewhere else. No disrespect to Watford but how a player can choose them over WH is a mystery to me and can only be based upon wages.

09 Aug 2018 13:43:43
Either that or the reporting is false and they didn't really choose Watford over us.

The bottom line is if Pellegrini is happy, the rest of us should be.

We got all our business done early this window which is very valuable, and thus the end of the window has seemed flat, but that is testament to the stirling work done early on. Our players have bedded in, spent pre season together, developed together as a team and are ready (hopefully) for Sunday.

Others will be throwing in guys who have never met each other and hoping for the best.

West Ham have been fantastic in this window. have paid the big money, paid the big wages, gone out and got what the manager asked for and seemingly rebuffed anything that looked like taking away from the managers plans.

09 Aug 2018 16:04:01
The other key thing to remember is that Rice is moving into our midfield and strengthens us there (if the games he played for Ireland and the pre season friendlies are anything to go by) plus we're about to sign Sanchez who is no Messi but strengthens us at CDM as he knows the position. Also with the player's we've signed further forward Wilshere in all liklihood will play deep and strengthens us too.

My only concern is at CB where we have 3 CBs, two without any league experience and one a South American punt in a position where we play 2 every game. Maybe Zabaleta could cover, maybe Rice will drop back if needed, and maybe Oxford will stay and be the emergency 4th man, but as it stands this is the biggest area of squad weakness.

At CM we have Noble, Rice, Wilshere, Obiang and in all liklihood Sanchez too, plus Cullen, Oxford and Fernandes (unless they depart on loan deals) .

Pellegrini has seen all our CMs and obviously sees enough in what he has to not make this priority given the style of game he wants to play.

Assuming we'll no longer be adopting the low block defence that was both Moyes and Bilic's hallmark (even in his first season) then we can assume Pellegrini doesn't see the CDM as key over and above a team work ethic to recover the ball early after losing possession.

09 Aug 2018 16:54:14
With jack wanting to get forward as does noble (who wouldn't be in my first eleven ) whos doing the defending we can't complain about our transfers but we've missed one very serious problem last season when obiang got injured we had kouyate the headless chicken goi g on 50 yard runs and noble joining him at some stage (paceless) and although he can't play in that position a better centre half DENDONKER joins WOLVES on a loan (which we couldn't get) with a view to a €12 million transfer next year we were quoted €22 million i understand prices change and we have new management but come on WOLVES and FULHAM are close to loaning a top striker VIETTO from athletico madrid but we can't have everyone just gutted we haven't adressed mind you arsenal haven't for years but have only just got a top CDM so we will see how he sets our team to play. COYI.

09 Aug 2018 10:21:44
Heard Crystal Palace still interested in Antonio. If they did approach and were interested would be have time to sign a replacement and who would it be? With the abundance of AM’s that we have signed to date, would it free up money for another attacker if Gonalons joined us?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 11:10:47
The signing of Perez means that we now have healthy competition for places up front. I’d be surprised if Antonio left today, but it depends on MP’s view and whether the books need a bit of balancing.

09 Aug 2018 10:13:52
perez is done. according to pictures on wilshires twitter account.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:37:41
Official video just been released on West Ham Instagram page. This one is officially done. Perez 📝 for WH.

09 Aug 2018 11:00:40
Didn’t really know much about him, but just watched the 2015/ 16 Deportivo You Tube of him. Very left footed, but pacy, tricky and an excellent finisher. He is an absolute bargain, if the £4m that has been touted is anywhere near accurate.

He can play striker, or anywhere alongside the front line.

Great deal.

08 Aug 2018 19:18:41
WH are still in discussions re GONALONS keep ties crossed he's Quslity. IRONMIKE.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 19:38:13
One last push mike?

08 Aug 2018 19:52:53
Mike, would this be instead of Sanchez or as well as Sanchez.

08 Aug 2018 19:57:10
Well we better get a move on as once it gets to tommorow it becomes a lottery as anything can go wrong.

08 Aug 2018 20:39:14
I hope we do sign someone tomorrow. What happened with felix aswell?

08 Aug 2018 20:42:51
If we can get this player it would not be instead I wouldn’t think and LEEit’s already like that mate. IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 21:33:10
I thought GOMES was flying to london surely not for the weather mike 🙄.

08 Aug 2018 20:56:19
No from Bengica Jaoa Felix two days past. IRONMIKE.

09 Aug 2018 05:49:18
Rumours this Morning we are interested in Llorente for the spuds - hops this is not true as

1 - He is rubbish
2. He is a rubbish spud and if we are doing buisness with them it’s Victor Wanyama all day long


09 Aug 2018 06:27:10
I can't see perez deal happening its gone on to long and when it happens like that it dies personaly i don't think he wants to leave arsenal plus lorrenti story load of rubbish we won't deal with spuds.

09 Aug 2018 08:56:05
Why don’t we offer more for dendocker and steal him off of wolves! He is in the country.
Dog eat dog

09 Aug 2018 16:02:23
id love us to renew our interest in nakamba as wait for it as i will get ridiculed on this he could be another n'golo kante (who we nearly signed by the way) he just reminds me so much of n'golo its scary so if we did get him our window would be complete and a. azing if we sign carlos sanchez its a huge step back on our signings thus window and imo a complete no no and a waste of a transfer and what a shame we can't do buisness with levy as i know rose is allowed to leave and i'd ask about wanyamaas i think he's getable apart from the spurs (no too west ham policy jesus christ they wouldn't even let us have adabeyor who was training with the kids at the time so a waste of me writing this part of this post so what am i doing anyway we are desperate for a cdm or c/ mid as imo noble isn't good enough defensively anymore for the premier league just my opinion people but we have to be happy with our transfers thus far just a sneaky negative feeling it will all come undone unless we don't replace kouyate . coyi.

08 Aug 2018 18:18:15
With the market closing at 5 pm tomorrow, incoming transfers getting now more unlikely as a potential transfer would realy now need to be in England by early am tomorrow latest i'm still in hope. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 18:32:26
Mike, what about midfield tacklers in the premier league?

Wanyama, Drinkwater, others?

What do you think?

08 Aug 2018 18:34:42
Get drinkwater on loan with option to buy along with perez and we have everywhere covered.

08 Aug 2018 19:12:28
WH have so far shown NO interest in Drinkwater and won’t deal with spurs IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 19:45:33
Perez a steal at 4m I think he's a pellegrini type player could see him up top with Arnautovic in a 4222.

Underwhelmed by the Sanchez signing what sort of money are we talking for him? he's not a bad squad player technically he's better than kouyate.

It would have been nice to get a new quality cdm/ cm.

Obiang on his day has looks like a baller bit rusty in pre season but mind was on the move back to sampdoria. sure pellegrini will get fighting for his place. leaves us with Noble Rice wilshere obiang and possibly Sanchez. which is better than what we had.

what's the latest on fernandes?

08 Aug 2018 20:45:30
Lots of question Fernandez should join the violas tomorrow. IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 21:04:48
permanent deal?

08 Aug 2018 21:29:02
With KOVACIC going to chelsea we should be all over a loan deal for DRINKWATER its a no brainer imo.

09 Aug 2018 16:00:17
I know we have done some fantastic buisness but I am also concerned about a very important Role of DM not being addressed and like someone else said on here for 3 seasons now! ( it’s like the right back position all over again )
I don’t see how MP can rest the position on a youngster in rice - Barmey - JMO
Hopefully a loan deal or late purchase may pop up
Tomorrow 🙏🤞🏻⚒.

08 Aug 2018 17:20:25
NOW we have STURARO Possibly going to Watford after WH say don't yhink so Bonkers. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 17:25:51
Which players are we actually in for atm?

08 Aug 2018 17:44:50
Feels like we are being gazumped by wolves
Everton and now Watford.

08 Aug 2018 17:58:21
No we are not being gazumped, it’ looks like following the likely signings of Perez and Sanchez WH are calling it a day and players we were chasing like Sturaro and Gonalons now looking elsewhere yes that’s disappointing but we must go along with MP and trust he knows what he’s doing. IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 17:58:27
We are surely not being gazumped, if we have shown no interest in dendoncker since pellegrini, we have cooled on Gomes and said no to Sturaro.

08 Aug 2018 18:12:01
Hold fire. Trust in MP and Husillos, who have done so much more than any of us could possibly have expected (and much more quietly, too) without the DS fanfares and hullabaloo of old.

If MP wants to add to the squad in the next few hours, I’m sure he will.

08 Aug 2018 18:25:34
So no recognised quality holding midfielder brought in for the 3rd season now! . mmm. ok well i hope that doesn´t come back to bite us in the arse!

Dont´t get me wrong i think we´ve done fantastic business i say again fantastic business . ON PAPER! . after all only Wilshere has PML experience so let's hope all these new players and a lot none of us really know how they´ll turn out let's be honest here and if they can adapt to the hardest league in the world! . fingers crossed they gel and everything works out as none of us really know! . i´m nervous but i am at the start of every season i suppose!

08 Aug 2018 18:40:24
west ham say don't think so? thought u said yesterday that sturaro turned us down as he wants to stay in italy?

08 Aug 2018 19:15:50
Yes indeed but players like a woman can change their mind so it’s down to WH to monitor the situation which in this case maybe they didn’t. OR indeed made up there minds they don’t want him. Things are constantly changing you have to stay on top of it IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 16:40:25
EVERTON come in for Andre Gomez, as WH cool. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree3

08 Aug 2018 17:05:26
They didn’t sign Bernard then.

08 Aug 2018 17:14:57
Its all over twitter that its very close to us? We simply have to bring some midfielders in we are too light now with losing kouyate and fernandes.

08 Aug 2018 17:18:38
Why not? IRONMIKE.

08 Aug 2018 17:21:44
Bit of an anti climax and feeling that we may become wanting in certain areas that haven’t been addressed - CM being the elephant in the room. Hopefully I’m proved wrong though!

08 Aug 2018 17:25:15
On Bernard, surely he isn’t going to sign for anyone before Friday as a few clubs may come circling if they miss out on other targets, obviously with him being a free agent? If he is money motivated or not it seems silly to sign when he can get a better offer wherever he goes come Friday?

08 Aug 2018 18:08:38
If any clubs have sufficient wages leeway, Kaneob. The vast majority will have done all of their business by end of play tomorrow.

08 Aug 2018 16:26:42
Dendonker fans NO he'snot coming to us he's apparently off to Wolves so we shall see how he goes. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 16:14:46
Tabloids are reporting that the days are numbered for a number of our players. Seems Kouyate has gone, Fernandez is going as is Hughill and Byram and if he wasn't injured AC would be gone also.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 16:32:45
Hugill is officially loaned out to Boro now, hopefully he has a decent season and they want to sign him this time next year!

08 Aug 2018 16:32:48
We didn’t need the tabloids to confirm that though did we Phil. I think we knew that already. 😁.

08 Aug 2018 18:42:10
Encouraging to hear that Carroll will also be on his way.

08 Aug 2018 13:36:04
RIGHT I'm off out back later hope by then something's occurred. IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 14:19:20
Oh no how will we manage.

08 Aug 2018 14:35:58
Can u bring a energeric midfielder back please.

08 Aug 2018 15:03:26
I thought after Perez and Sanchez that´s our bizzo done no.?

08 Aug 2018 15:14:03
And some milk lol.
