Hi all hope everyone is well, been a bit quiet for a bit. Al get straight into it lol.
Ed, is there any actual rumours that have any legs? And do you know the current status of Lingard and us or Man U?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what rumours you are referring to but although the club is struggling financially they need to sign a CB and find a striker as a matter of urgency. There are efforts being made to try and find agreement with Marseille and Duje Caleta-Car and they are again due to meet with the lady from Marseille who says that the player is hoping for other options but right now there aren't any. There are plenty of other CBs on West Ham's list.

The situation with strikers remains the same scattergun approach West Ham have been using for the past couple of years. They seem to be unable to reduce the huge list of strikers they have watched down to a few they can focus on and it is clear they need help here. If there are sufficient sales to raise money perhaps the answer is taking an experienced older striker and adding a younger player as wel.. Again the list is huge. There is also a need for a Goalkeeper and there are a couple of known options and one which might well go through is Armstrong Okoflex (W/F) who is seen as a vesatile youngster who might be able to replace Yarmolenko. Celtic are letting the player talk directly to West Ham.

Adding a CM player is probably desirable but I don't see Aaron Ramsey as the solution - although I am aware of an enquiry from West Ham - perhaps at the prompting of his agent.

The situation with Lingard remains the same with the player wanting to know his options - and staying at WHU is certainly one. Manchester United may offer to extend to save money on purchases but it probably won't suit the player without guarantees.

Anything else will be driven by departures and money raised. Although the desire to retain Declan Rice remains, there is a chance he will force a move - that would bring much needed money and West Ham have that in their thought process as they have added the very good Pierre Ekwah Elimby from Chelsea and scouted a couple of replacements, not least Alex Kral.}

Nate Phillips and axel tuanzabe are both available apparently, I'd take both of them, both reasonable young and top defenders.

Football insider saying Tarkowski wants to join West Ham this summer Thoughts people.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jun 2021 23:02:27
Thought it was a good move last season trying to get him in
But he was way overpriced hopeful they more realistic if we go back in for him.

16 Jun 2021 08:13:16
I imagine Burnley are going to want £20+ million for Tarkowski which on the face of it isn't bad for a Premier League proven central defender in this day and age. However, he is 28 and there are, in my opinion, younger players who are as good as him but with potential to be better, available for less. Duje Caleta-Car for example is 24 and rumoured to be available for £13 million. David Zima is 20 and rumoured to be available for £10 million. both of which, I would take over Tarkowski to keep a bigger budget on other areas.

17 Jun 2021 11:26:39
Caldera-Car looks the real deal to me. We have got a couple of U23s coming through too.

09 Jun 2021 11:06:37
Apparently David Moyes is not looking to sign a goalkeeper this window because he believes Fabianski is good enough to still be our number one for a year and Randolph adequate back up.

Instead he is choosing to invest the money he has in other areas of the squad. Which I don't mind at all.

However, Arsenal have apparently made an approach for Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Now, Onana is currently looking at a 12 month suspension from football as a result of taking a banned substance. He is appealing the decision as apparently it was a mistake as he took his wife' medicine rather than the one he was meant to take in error.

He is a superb goalkeeper, still only 25 and apparently available for as little as £7 million even if the ban is lifted. This figure is likely to fall further if he loses his appeal to have the ban lifted.

When you consider Chelsea were looking to sign him for significantly more money prior to signing Mendy. and when you consider he is still young, has bags of potential and still to see and has Champions League and Europa League experience, I think we should be all over this and trying to get him in.

Hi Die 4 I think it's a bit short sighted not to sign a keeper as Fab only has 1 year left and has had a few injury probs. I really like Johnstone and evidently he likes west ham. Listening to the England game where Stuart Pearce was commentating it was clear he likes him as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2021 07:52:22
Hey mercerl, I would rather we did sign a goalkeeper and that is what my post was about. I think we should be all over Andre Onana. I have also said in previous posts that Tomas Veclik the Czech no. 1 who is a free agent after leaving Sevilla is a "free" signing agents fees and bonuses etc aside that I think we should look at.

I have just seen a few reports recently that Moyes is looking at spending his budget on improving other areas of the team first.

I also saw a report the other day that apparently the Sam Johnstone link is off because we deem him too expensive.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Jun 2021 15:46:09
Don't know much about onana but all poked at Veclik a couple of weeks ago he seems to have lost his place at Seville due to Injury and wasn't offered a guaranteed 1st place, hence him turning down a new contract. You do worry about goalies who have had injuries. I watched Trott a free times a couple of years ago and thought he had promise. Do perhaps Moyes has a long term plan for the position.

If Arsenal go elsewhere then Ryan could be a good backup.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Jun 2021 16:08:41
Let’s face it, onana cannot possibly get away with appealing the decision saying he thought it was his but it was actually his wife’s medicine, I would laugh that out of the room if I was on that board!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2021 23:12:00
His ban has been reduced to 9 months.

I still think we should go for him… let him settle in with the squad, settle in with the country and the culture… he is a class goalkeeper worth a lot more than the numbers being mentioned and still only 25 years old.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2021 09:10:05
Do not really see the point in signing a player who is ineligible to play for 9 months, that is a waste of 9 months pay!

Sam Johnstone all day long for me, proven keeper in premier league.
My priority would be a keeper and a couple of strikers, if we can pick up another cb then that’s a bonus.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2021 17:42:44
I see what you’re saying Bobby, but giving him a contract that pays him a fraction of any weekly wage we agree while he is suspended, or signing him with no signing bonus to off set against the wages we’d pay out during his suspension.

Given the money we’d save on transfer fee as a result of the suspension (Chelsea were rumoured to be looking at signing him for £30 million, he’s now available for £2-7 million depending on what article you read) I think we’d be foolish to not at least gauge his interest.

Signing a £30 million goalkeeper for a fraction of the price and not being able to play him for 9 months, would be like signing someone that subsequently gets injured.

Caleta-Car for Lanzini for be reasonable trade. Move the salary and get a younger CB for balbyena replacement.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Jun 2021 12:45:39
Marseille wouldn't accept that unless money was involved.

It is also being suggested that Lanzini wants to move back to Argentina and Boca Juniors.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 15:04:09
River Plate note Boca Juniors. Apologies.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2021 07:00:49
i think its time for Lanzini to leave other than the goal at Spurs he is not the player he once was.
Sorry to say its time to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2021 07:43:54
Got to be honest Bideford, I agree.

He is very good tactically and I enjoy watching him play when he is on form, but I don't think he fits in as a player alongside Antonio up top, nor do I think he is all that effective out on the wings and I don't think he has the strength or defensive abilities to cover for Soucek or Rice.

If we can make some money back on him now. then we should. Send him on his way with a thank you though. He has been a good servant to the club and given his best.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jun 2021 16:24:35
so today we are linked with

patson daka his home country media sayinf he is signing for west ham, othet reports saying its liverpool or leipzig

alex kral has agreed personal terms with west ham if true i hope that does mean we are selling rice.

sam johnstone a salthouse client so most probs true we all k ow how sully loves will

junior firpo 16m bid

all this from social media so to be taken with a massive pinch of salt.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2021 18:29:58
I think Karl will happen. Just the feeling I get (smoke and fire springs to mind) . Same can be said for junior Firpo. I think if we get Kral, we may well and truly consider offers for Rice north of £90m. I’d hate to see it but I think it could happen. Then they will go and buy a back of DM from somewhere else for around £20-30m.
Patson Daka I would love to be true. The lads a speed machine! Just what we need for counter attacking football.
If we could just get rid of Yarmalenko and Anderson, this would Go somewhat in negating the need to sell Rice.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2021 21:17:58
So now we will find out how committed David Moyes is to West Ham now the Everton job is vacant.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

02 Jun 2021 02:31:14
I hope DM isn't tempted but the way he was casted out after keeping WH up must have hurt, but give credit where its due Sully and Co. did see the error they made and corrected it.
Everton has a far bigger budget to play with than WH but he is building a team to compete which we were all glad to accept survival with our last 2 managers. [Pel and Big Sam]
I really can't see him leaving with all the work he and his backroom staff have done both on and off the pitch but he was at Everton for 11 years and i'm sure he has a strong bond with the Everton board and fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jun 2021 04:36:41
I also hope he stays. He and his staff have done a great job in the last year. If he listens to his head then he will stay, if he listens to his heart then that may be a different matter. He had 11years at Everton, has he still got a base on Merseyside, would his wife prefer to move back up north. It’s not just the football, but external factors must come into consideration. On our side there are some good managers looking for jobs.

Apparently GSB already planning to use the free transfer market because that's worked out so well in the past hasn't it.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 May 2021 10:06:46
if we sign one or two free agents to plump up the squad numbers a little then that would be useful, we don't have the depth of squad for Europa League on a Thursday and then Premier League on the Sunday. However, I would be hugely disappointed if we signed free agents and didn't invest money in players too.

It is also worth mentioning there are one or two free agents that probably would be useful / good additions and are realistic targets (excluding Messi, Donnarumma, Depay, Wijnaldum for example because they're not realistic) .


Thomas Vaclik - GK - Czech no. 1 goalkeeper, has played for Sevilla for a few years now, has won the Europa League with them too. he would be a decent signing in goal

Nikola Maksimovic - CB - international player with a fairly decent pedigree

Ryan Bertrand - LB - but would be a useful addition and decent competition at left back

John Lundstram - cm - in my opinion he has been made a bit of a scapegoat this year for Sheffield United, but again, as a squad player to sit on the bench and fill in, not a bad option

Josh King - f - to have as a squad player behind Antonio and any marquee signing we make up top, a decent option

Cristian Benteke - f - to have as a squad player behind Antonio and any marquee signing we make up top, a decent option


NOW. I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT, I DO NOT THINK WE SHOULD SIGN THESE PLAYERS, BUT I AM SAYING THAT THERE ARE A COUPLE OF DECENT SQUAD BOOSTING OPTIONS ON THE FREE AGENT LIST THIS SUMMER. ALTHOUGH, I WOULDN'T BE DISAPPOINTED IF WE SIGNED VACLIK AND BERTRAND.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2021 16:20:20
We've been linked to other "free transfers" Giroud, Don Peretz and possibly Ntcham if celtic terminate his contract.

Usually they are being let go for a reason or a number of reasons high wages, age, attitude.

I think there can be frees that would be smart business to bulk out the squad just hope they do their due diligence and don't get players that simply aren't good enough and/ or disrupt the squad.

Sullivan needs to dig deep for me now would be the perfect time to buy players with some being sold cheaper due to loss of revenue.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 May 2021 01:56:56
Benteke would be a good signing. He causes problems for defences.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Jun 2021 16:13:04
Donnarumma free transfer would be lovely haha, dreams can come true.
