City game in few days now. We must attack their weak defence; i know they could punish us with their -forwards but we have no other plan or modus operandus available. Except play maybe 5 in MF in a 3-5-2 to try and stifle them.

I wrote a post that was turned in to an article by the Eds (proud day for me) a couple of months back entitled "Where I would love to see West Ham United come the start of next season" and in it I went through the current squad, highlighted the outgoings and who I thought we should target in January and over the Summer. This article is version 2.

I fear we are going to be linked with every player and his dog again in another typical west ham transfer winbdow. Sullivans recent "Declan Rice Contract Rumour" is a typical example of how he likes to be in the news

Good article and some interesting opinions on who we should get. One correction though, the club had a two year option on Ben Johnson contract which they triggered when negotiations were not successfully concluded, so his contract does not run out this June, but I read they will negotiate again in the summer.

Not a fan of JOHNSON to be fair he needs coaching on how to cross the ball but for me not good enough

I hear that West Ham are about to offer Declan Rice a new contract ( again )
This one is rumoured to be for 8 years at £200k per week and linked into inflation.any comments?

11 May 2022 17:50:36
Hammer, Why not reward your best and most outstanding player to take us forward hopefully into Europe as the highest paid at the club, exactly the right thing to do imo👍If Rice was to go it could start the trend for others to go if offers come in? ⚒⚒⚒⚒

11 May 2022 18:19:26
The lenght 8 years why would you sign that
The money side if we can afford it then why not but the lenght for me is ridiculous

Agree8 Disagree0

11 May 2022 19:02:37
I totally agree that we must do all we can to keep Rice. He is the new heart beat of the club now that Noble is in the process of retiring from playing. We have for to long produced top players to let the so called bigger clubs have all the benefit when they come into there prime. Now we are showing that we can challenge for a European spot at hopefully year on year it is essential to keep your best players to progress.

Agree7 Disagree0

11 May 2022 22:52:38
He wouldn't sign an eight year contract I wouldn't think, at least not without a release clause. Who would?

Agree6 Disagree0

12 May 2022 07:22:44
If Rice was a new player that cost a huge fee that needed to integrate just like the previous transfer mistakes from overseas players WH have made on massive wages then underperform, then yes 8 years is far to long!

However does anybody not think outside the box in non Footballing terms about a contract and the players future for himself and family.
They are obviously like any human and their working life can be cut short at any time by an injury or accident, perhaps devaluing any future income at a young age!

What else should a club do to keep their most influential and consistent player but make him their top earner? If WH are trying their utmost to retain him, how many would be complaining we should have tried harder to keep him if not, we can’t have it both ways? ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

Agree5 Disagree0

12 May 2022 10:57:10
Chelmsford no way would he sign an 8 year contract without a release clause. It isn't just a matter of securing his future but also a matter of having the ability to negotiate that future if things don't go as he would like. He is not going to go short of a penny even if his career ends earlier than expected so he isn't going to be desperate for that type of security that most of us seek, he is already a millionaire. No way will 8 years attract him unless it comes with ability to get out of it if he isn't happy IMO.

Agree4 Disagree0

12 May 2022 12:13:33
Sdl, I agree with your comment, but if WH are desperate to retain him and he wants a release clause, why would WH or Rice not agree to it, if Dec doesn’t want it then he almost certainly wants away! Shame if he goes but we will do very well out of the deal to buy in the transfer market! ⚒⚒⚒⚒

Agree4 Disagree0

12 May 2022 13:01:40
There are 2 flips of this coin.
1. It gives him security for the rest of his career in case of injury 2. He actually wants to leave, but does not want it announced.

We have NO chance of getting £150m for a CDM. If we got £100m and invested it wisely, I personnaly would sell Rice. We could get 2 9/10 players, or 3 8/10 players, whatever, our side would be increased and bettered by losing 1.

Agree8 Disagree0

13 May 2022 00:20:24
Sounds like as usual these rumours about Rice are not quite right and the parties are not going to negotiate until season end.

Agree6 Disagree0

13 May 2022 08:42:25
the £10million-a-year package is being viewed by Rice’s side as West Ham co-owner David Sullivan playing to the crowd and another stunt by Sullivan

Agree7 Disagree0

13 May 2022 12:40:07
Sounds very likely, like a ‘we tried to get him to stay for 8 years, not our fault’

Papers saying we are in for Broja. He's a little inconsistent for my liking. Don't know what everyone else thinks.

Believable15 Unbelievable0

09 May 2022 21:43:57
The price seems crazy sure i seen 50/60m
I quite like the look of him from what i seen but would he get game time the kids needs to be playing not sitting on the bench and i'd say he'll spend most of his time on the bench under moyes

Agree14 Disagree0

09 May 2022 23:54:12
I agree, too much money for Broja being quoted.

Agree13 Disagree0

10 May 2022 07:09:28
£60m cannot be right. what's he done to prove he is worth that amount of money? Haaland is going to Man City for around £65m and he isn't as good as him. Please tell me we are not going to pay that for him?

Agree11 Disagree0

10 May 2022 14:12:02
I'd definitely like us to sign Broja, 40m - 60m is a lot but he has massive potential not many 19-20 year olds can come into the prem and bully defenders with pace and power. His consistency should get better with age and he's quite similar to Michail so would suit our style of play.

All that being said Chelsea might not want to sell.

Agree8 Disagree0

10 May 2022 16:17:06
It’s a case of supply and demand re Borja, which ups all prices in any form of business! I agree with Iron.Al re age and potential!
Not many teams aside of the present top 2 will you mostly see consistency, that’s why they are the top 2.
Yes maybe the fee is quite heavy, £40m is not over the top imo, possibly £60 is heavy, but if that’s the price and won’t budge then we will move on to a Championship hopeful, I see Brereton- Diaz mentioned again? ⚒⚒⚒⚒

Agree5 Disagree0

10 May 2022 20:15:29
I suspect Chelsea have over valued Broja in the hope they can make a decent few quid off of his sale - should the choose to sell him that is. I've said elsewhere that I don't think he's anywhere near a £60M pound striker and 6 goals in 31 PL games kinda backs that up.

I know he's only 20 but it's huge money to be risking on a player that could just as easily be the next Mido rather than Aguero.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have not placed any value on Broja.}

Agree5 Disagree0

11 May 2022 07:59:58
Billy, whatever price is put on a player any enquiry is not going to start at the asking price, any club will value them way above what they want for him, you can only sell once plus Chelsea are not desperate to offload yet I don’t think?

Like selling a House or Car unless you are desperate if a club gets the asking price on the first offer, then they have undersold on price and can’t sell him again, Broja at 19 could turn out to be another Rice, De Bruyne, Salah, previously Chelsea have old all those players, lesson learned maybe, also they have the gem Gallagher on loan at Chelsea, what price will they ask for him, but my guess is they won’t sell him?

I read now we may go in for Watkins at Villa at £50m, imo
Better than nothing but not at £50m, doesn’t excite me, would prefer a chance on Broja at 19 if there was a choice? But a bit of a chance on the current asking price, but negotiated below the £40m could be good, how many 19year olds have we got up front doing what he has at S’oton? Could argue not many have been given a chance up front, but DM and staff see in Training who’s capable of shaking up Premiership defences?
⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

Do like watkins and from what I've seen he works hard for the team
Didnt villa pay 30m+ for him

Surely, Moyse must realise 3 things:
1. Antonio needs a partner tonight
2. Soucek not cutting the mustard anymore
3. Stop playing long balls

Believable21 Unbelievable0

06 May 2022 07:13:49
Now the dust has settled and emotions have run high, we got to admit that we have done well with what we have. let's face it, the squad is full of average players (Rice, Bowen and maybe Zouma aside) that have over achieved this season by working hard. Moyes likes players that work their socks off, not players with that extra quality (Adam Hlozek is a quality player that laf of europe are after but not for moyes) and unfortunately with a squad our size, fatigue was going to set in eventually. As for the actual game, we tried hard, lots of effort but the overall quality just wasn't their. ZOuma caught at the half way line was poor, but Cresswell was terrible and as pointed out, this is the second time where he has gone off for trying to man handle players and at this level you get punished. He should know better and the fact that he doesn't is worrying. For me, our left back position has been a problem area for some time and with every window we never address it.

Agree18 Disagree0

06 May 2022 07:18:08
I can't remember over the 2 legs Antonio having a shot on goal. I know he works hard but he is NOT a striker and he needs to know that if we bring a striker in, then he may well be warming the bench. Belotti, Hlozek etc are not going to warm the bench for antonio. We have a squad full of average players so it needs to be addressed in the summer and we need to offload those not up to the level required. I'm fairly sure that we will conduct our business in the usual way and place stoopid bids in for players and spend all summer bidding and chasing, mulling, pondering etc. Don't expect miracles because oiur management don't work like that. Come the start of the new season I can lay a fair amount of money that we will still be chasing Lingard.AGAIN

Agree14 Disagree0

06 May 2022 07:24:51
Anyway, speaking of ADAM Hlozek it seems that we have the opportunity to obtain his services this summer on loan but Moyes and Newman want to assess other options We could get him on loan and we want to look eleswhere? Its a no brainer!

Agree11 Disagree0

06 May 2022 07:41:40
Bowen told to drop into MF after Cressy incident
Subs should be on bit sooner while we still had outside chance

Agree12 Disagree0

06 May 2022 20:03:12
Im hopeing newman coming in will at last bring some common sense to our stratagy to the transfer windows
No more wasting time on players we have no chance of getting and bring in players that want to play and show there quality for west ham

Agree10 Disagree0

06 May 2022 20:10:33
This window we really can't be ponderous and slow like previous windows we need some what of a small rebuild with Noble, Yarmolenko, Kral, Frederick's all gone at the end of the season. Ogbonna was needing to be replaced and his injury makes the matter more urgent.

We all knew what was needed in the previous window but the board, Newman and Moyes failed to deliver and ultimately our season has suffered because of it. Yes with the squad we have we have done well but for me that underlines how much of an opportunity this season was to do something special.

Agree14 Disagree0

07 May 2022 02:21:38
Hlozek isn't a true striker either, plays a lot of games out on the left and cuts in. Hasn't scored so many recently either when I looked.

Agree16 Disagree0

07 May 2022 17:46:50
It doesn’t have to be a so called “striker” just somebody up front that can cause a lot of problems but also score! I Don’t get involved with quoting rumours usually but read we are “plotting” whatever that means, a move for Broja on loan with S’oton from Chelsea, think that would be a really good move for us, big, strong, Premiership experience, but maybe if so will Chelsea want a bit of Rice involved?
⚒⚒⚒⚒

02 May 2022 16:50:29
Read united want rice after the lingard mess we should tell them the same thing we won't sell to a rival
Not matter the price

Yes and in other direction of play a winger named Morente connection to us

Agree25 Disagree0

03 May 2022 06:15:54
Man Utd may want but if he isn't for sale he isn't for sale. Yes I know everyone has a price but will they pay 150M for a DM? I doubt it.

Agree17 Disagree0

03 May 2022 10:08:37
Sdl yes in my eyes "want lists" are for children at Xmas; not grown adults in the Summer. lol

Agree18 Disagree0

04 May 2022 07:57:29
I cannot see any club in this present climate paying £150m for an attacking midfielder, £100m possibly?
He could go straight into any top 4 teams permanently, but he won’t be quite the big star he is at WH imo, also I suspect he may want to be London based, but that’s just imo!
We can make make comparisons with Grealish, he is worth no more than £30m, he was a big fish at Villa, but he’s a Tadpole at City!
He was a ridiculous overspend and would make Dec look like a bargain basement buy for £100m, but the money still has to be found.I don’t see him going abroad, but who knows? ⚒⚒⚒

Agree16 Disagree0

05 May 2022 11:40:14
Yeah a World Recession coming, and we are effectively in WW3 but of course peeps afraid to use correct term, due to what it entails. Which is already happening anyway. Is there a negative version of Wishful Thinking.

29 Apr 2022 07:03:54
Its the same as the striker issue, How long have we been saying that we need decent full backs. EVery good team has quality full backs. On the whole with a bit more luck we could have won tonight but never mind its on to the second leg

Agree19 Disagree0

29 Apr 2022 11:34:54
Tall order needing to win by 2 clear goals in Germany - but, hey, it's not over till the obese adult female shrieks. I broadly agree on the other issues raised. Be careful on Cresswell he is too useful to play basically across all of the defence or make a good left winger / MF in a crisis (ie when nobody else to play there, which may well occur at some point).

Agree19 Disagree0

30 Apr 2022 14:06:25
Whorya, 😂🤣Have you been watching the Two Ronnies🤣I’ve heard of fork handles, but didn’t know about for nails. Nice one mate, no offence, made me smile👍⚒⚒⚒

We couldn’t afford Rashford, fee or wages.

Agree27 Disagree0

24 Apr 2022 11:49:02
Rashford hasn’t pulled up any trees lately.

Belotti is Moyes’ type of player - rugged, fearless and hard working.

He can finish, too (which helps).

Agree20 Disagree0

24 Apr 2022 12:03:58
I think Rashford in the right setup could be world class, but in United that will never be the case like Lingard.

24 Apr 2022 21:33:42
Belotti am warming to ; 28 he may have already peaked but class peters out more slowly

Agree19 Disagree0

25 Apr 2022 07:13:21
We can get better than Rashford who throws his toys in the corner when things don't go right. I'm still amazed that we never went for ORIGI in January

Addendum - someone has pointed out Tomas is valued around circa 42.5k. And for that money, for a 27 year old; the buyer would have to REALLY want him. So unlikely to just sleepwalk into leaving.
