Apparently a £14m bid gone in for Milenkovic?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2021 17:15:28
Be a good signing if we can pull it off. Easily a £25M player if he wasn't in the last year of his contract. Fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 17:44:26
It's going to take more than 14m.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2021 13:15:21
Apparently they want £17M and now Sours are in. Can we not for once pay a relatively (cheap) asking price and get someone through the door instead of losing them to rivals? I appreciate we need to do a few loans because of overall finances but if we can't stump up £17M after the sales of Haller et al then finances are truly woeful.

Reading tammy wages demands are a concern on top of chelsea price he's on roughly 60k a week
Personal don't think we should offer much higher
Whats peoples thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2021 12:17:15
Cheaper than what we were paying Yarmo,

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 12:22:41
Also if we truly want Abraham need to act before villa sell greslish, they’ll be after ward Prowse and Tammy with the proceeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 13:18:14
He's on £82k a week at Chelsea after a performance based contract extension kicked in and is wanting £130k if he moves.

Far too rich for our blood.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 16:26:46
For that, he can stay at Chelsea and park his *rse on the bench (that is, if he makes their match day squad) .

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 16:52:22
i don't think he will move for less wages than he on, if that what it takes do it.
I think Pereira and the Serb will work for us but we need a centre back also.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2021 18:45:41
Pereira going to Saudi club typical all this hype.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2021 16:10:22
I wouldn't pay Tammy that amount per week. Even 90k a week is a push. He and his agent can push for whatever they want, they have the right to. But Tammy has at no time proved himself to be a 100k a week striker for a non-top 6 side. He did ok at other clubs and has done OK at Chelsea with all that talent around him, but that is it. 90k for a club outside of the top 6 is like 150k at Chelsea in terms of how much it means to the club. Got to be realistic, and personally i don't want a player to break the wage structure that is being built at WHU, especially if he key motivator is more cash. Declan is the only player we could consider breaking the structure for, he has proven to be brilliant for us AND on the internaitonal stage, sorry but Tammy just isn't worth that and if he flops then we would never be able to get rid of him.
Move on to the next one. Embolo, Sima etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2021 16:18:09
If he is going to Saudi Arabia over coming to West Ham he definitely is not the type of character you want in the dressing room.

31 Jul 2021 14:11:18
Bowen not in squad for Brentford game today?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Jul 2021 15:28:27
Do you think Bowen is a liverpool type player as i don't see it. i can't see Moyes letting him go. Liverpools problem is mid field and centre back, with Van Dijk back i think they will be back strong this season without Bowen.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2021 16:11:39
he'd be their replacement for Shakiri, that's all.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2021 12:12:52
From what I've been reading, the brathwaite transfer is a load is tosh by all accounts, but at the same time the West Brom midfielder is on the table, that was just some rumour hunting last night like. I hope this is right, brathwaite for me is a no but the other lad has got the goods I personally think.
Brentford this aft, see how we get on.
⚒⚒⚒.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Jul 2021 13:46:47
I'm reading we've agreed a deal for Braithwaite, he might be ok for a squad player but not a starter, not for me anyway.

{Ed002's Note - Martin Braithwaite (S) Yet another option for West Ham and there have been talks. He is a player Brighton and Wolves have also looked at. Barcelona want to sell for cash and don't want any sort of loan deal with options.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Jul 2021 14:03:46
I really hope not 13 million for a 30 year old that couldn't cut it at boro no thanks! he must have some agent!

{Ed002's Note - I would completely agree Al - West Ham have looked at far, far better options.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 14:17:17
Why are we even looking at him he was like a headless chicken in the euros
Bet it a stupid lenght of contract and even worse wages
Rather keep the money and play one of the youngsters.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 15:37:27
I’m not impressed by this news in the slightest.
I feel the same as very one else. Underwhelmed and somewhat surprised we would spend this money on a bit part player when we are already short on funds.
I hope I’m proved wrong but I don’t think so.
He’s asking for more money when he’s average at best. I’d rather have signed Armstrong from Blackburn for this money. Ok. he’s not proven at PL level but neither was Brathwaite.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 15:58:36
I don't know how anyone negotiating for Barcelona could keep a straight face for this one. Alarmed that there were even talks.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 16:25:32
If Barcelona were silly enough to sign him guarantee we are.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 16:37:35
They done it as an emergency signing after the window closed and I think they have been trying to get rid ever since! he's been linked with west ham since toulouse i hope its just his agent trying to drum up interest.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 21:44:13
I can't understand why would we be interested in Braithwaite he's over 30 runs about like a headless chicken can't score goals
thats what u get buying a 15 mil ex boro misfit.
Is this a Moyes signing or the chuckle brothers.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 22:16:24
What other strikers have we actually looked at, ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 23:14:29
Forget Braithwaite.

There are plenty of others on our radar.

I’m confident we will start the season with a stronger/ deeper squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2021 19:55:13
The others are more expensive Marko.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 16:04:23
What's your thoughts on the Kurt Zouma links?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2021 18:21:54
Would be a solid signing apparently we have bid 20m which is well below what they value him at not sure what they would be looking for its being reported they wanted to use him in swap deal for Kounde.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 19:13:16
Cant see us offering 20m for him well would hope not
10/ 15m he'd be worth a punt but then again probably on silly wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 19:24:54
I’d say at least 30 if not 35m.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 22:06:38
My brothers a chelsea season ticket holder. his mistake🤣. and he rates Zouma very highly as do a lot of his fellow blues i also rate Zouma very highly and 25 million for him in todays market is stealing him go go go.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 08:37:35
No chance you get him for below £30-35m the way Marina negotiates. And I doubt Chelsea will come to the table unless Rice is an acceptable point of discussion.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 10:07:57
Apparently Zouma has told Chelsea he is settled in London and doesn't want to be a part of any player exchange for Jules Kounde as he has no interest in moving abroad. Which, if true, would surely make a deal for West Ham a possibility?

Clearly we are interested in Zouma and Abraham, so I can see Marina Granovskaia MAYBE looking to use this to her advantage in a deal for Declan Rice.

Would we consider that? If we got Kurt Zouma, Tammy Abraham and some money for a Declan Rice replacement, is that a shabby deal? I have got to be honest, I would consider it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 10:55:44
For me if we use Rice in a swap deal its an advantage to Chelsea. We help them offload players they don't want and simultaneously give them our best player that we want to keep. Then we have to go and find a suitable replacement for Rice which will be very hard.

Zouma would bea great signing at 20-25m but I doubt it. I feel tammy is a bit over priced.

If they want to play hardball then we can look elsewhere go sign sven botman who has been monitored by some of the top clubs if he progresses and performs in prem he will be worth more than double what we would have paid.

Same with tammy we could possibly get 2 strikers for his price. Get 1 of edourd, onauchu, origi. Plus a young striker like Hlzoek, Sima.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 12:33:41
Villa paid like 30-35m for Watkins from the championship so Abraham has to be worth more. Zouma + Abraham + maybe 10m max would be the swap for Rice.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 14:25:38
No swap deal hard cash only and let moyes decide who he want to bring in Personal i wouldn't sell this season and unless it was a really silly price like over 100m and gave us plenty of time to invest the money
If chelsea can get 40m for tammy good luck to them as long as it not us paying it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2021 20:47:06
@fuser we value rice minimum 100m and he's worth every penny. Those 2 plus 10 mil would mean you value zouma and Abraham at 90m for the pair simply they are not worth that considering Chelsea want rid of them aswell also lowers the amount that should be paid.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 11:40:31
Areola now on board, now for that all important striker we need.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2021 13:26:53
Assume we are offloading Randolph then?
Bit surprised I thought the Pereira/ Johnstone double swoop had legs particularly if we sent Randolph the opposite way.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 15:17:12
Randolph is going to PSG to compete with donnaruma.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 22:07:10
Areola will be No 1.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2021 15:36:20
Linked to sven Botman, much better than the links to Jones and Bardsley. He might be a bit out of our price range.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Jul 2021 15:33:30
Kurt Zouma anyone? Just seen on sky transfer centre that we're prepared to pay £20M, (which is below Chelsea's valuation) but Zouma is settled in London and is unwilling to be a makeweight in any Jules Kounde deal with Sevilla - so there may be some traction with this one. Palace sniffing also.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 16:50:24
i think we should promote Alves to the senior squad to me
hes ready and that would free up more funds to buy Abraham, our weakness last season was in attack once Micky is out of the team we have no back up.
Yes we could do with Zouma but surly our priority is up front.
Both would be great but if times are hard get Abrahams in first then Pereira.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 19:28:50
Do think alves should be given a chance this season especially with the ammount of game we have
Looking forward to seeing a few of them give a chance that thierry nevers kid was on fire the other night
But we still will need a cb.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 20:03:03
Don’t forget Baptiste. Loads of good reports about him.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 21:11:32
Maybe wrong but baptiste is still really young Alves is in his 20s so he should be pressing for 1st team
But like baptiste scored a nice header against southend.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 17:28:39
Mike keegan has posted on his twitter phillip beards response to David sullivan regarding the take over bid. Wonder who's the liar then. Eds, do you have any info regarding this consortium?

{Ed002's Note - PAI is no more than an asset management company that will be looking at West Ham as a viable purchase that has a value that could be increased more than the investment required to make the purchase. I am not sure there has been more than interest and there are others the owners could look to if the want a sale.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

28 Jul 2021 12:44:44
We really could do without all the noise and distruption
Could takeover rumours help share price rise?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2021 15:36:41
West Ham is privately owned so there isn't a quoted share price. And no more than an asset management company isn't quite accurate. They are a private equity company investing in businesses planning to be able to increase value - which isn't quite the same thing.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2021 23:59:42
Everyone stop panicking, the right players will come . In moyes I trust. COYI.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Jul 2021 09:41:53
Its not moyes i'm worried about it the two daves and that harpy they brought with them
We've been fed so much bull by them are still are
Was reading that they said they will make sure any new buyer has the money to take us to the next level before selling
Im sure they said selling the stadium and moving will gives us the foundation to do this
Nothings changed probably in a worse position than 9 years ago
Oh we don't own a stadium thanks daves.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 16:04:31
I think what's worrying is that we said we would build a team around RICE and we've done nothing. Its the usual method of pondering, mulling, deciding etc and that's as far as it gets.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 17:06:24
It shouldn't really be taking this long to see some movement as we should have a good idea of who we want by now.

I actually thought when Haller went we must have had some one lined up as his replacement in the same window, how foolish of me.

Abraham and lingard seem to have been the main targets but I wouldn't be suprised if we are being strung along by Chelsea and man u as we were a genuine threat to a champions league place although I'd be suprised if we can repeat the same with all the extra games but maybe they don't want to make it easy for us as a potential threat.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 17:30:31
I honestly think there's no money really, I think some loans or cheap signings, maybe spend a bit if rice goes.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 18:56:19
Those players had to bust a gut to qualify for Europe, if the squad isn’t strengthened then it would’ve all been for nothing as we won’t have a chance of getting out the group stage, would Moyes have signed a contract knowing there isn’t any money?, I personally think there’s things going on in the back ground and they will make signings, bloody hope so anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 19:42:50
I agree why would moyes sign knowing he's getting no money
Now how much is the question.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 20:17:32
Maybe he had no decent offers elsewhere? Maybe he was told he could use whatever we made in transfers? I know C.V. hit us hard financially as ED has told us.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2021 23:32:26
C&h reported money is there and they seem to be a bit of a mouthpiece for the club/ sulli. Maybe Moyes is dithering on targets and trying to stretch the reduced money we have as far as possible.

I do think we are holding out for our main targets. I just hope we have things ready and lined up Abdulla Sima was left out for slavia today and the owners said he was very high up west hams transfer targets. If the Abraham deal doesn't happen perhaps we have confidence that deal can be tied up quickly as we have a good relationship with slavia already.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 06:02:39
Didnt they secure a 120m loan facility for transfers
Not saying we have 120m to spent but i'm sure it was said it was put in place to help out with transfers
Hopeing for good news on ogbonna and reid🤞.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 11:10:25
Who else is making moves? There is little money around, stop being so negative, none of our rivals are really doing much at this stage and European clubs are really struggling.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 14:40:52
Everton, arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 14:55:11
The only real chance of getting into the champions league is by winning the Europa league as I very much doubt we will finish top 4, and to do that we need a strong squad, also they promised Rice that they would build a team around him, that’s probably why he hasn’t signed an extended contract yet as he wants to see who comes in, but admittedly there’s still plenty of time but it would be nice to have at least one in by the time the season kicks off, preferably an out n out striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 17:30:43
@SDL only 3 clubs in the Prem have not made senior signings. Us, Chelsea (that will not last) and Newcastle. The teams around us have strengthened already and I'm sure they are still looking to strengthen further.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 18:32:56
What's worrying me the most are the players we're being linked with. Jens Stryger Larsen, Martin Braithwaite (I really wish this rumour would just go away), Phil Jones and Alex the crock Chamberlaine aren't exactly names to instil much confidence for the upcoming season.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 22:43:29
Iron. Al signing people and strengthening are two different things, not sure many have done much really.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2021 23:33:09
In fact testing some of that we have brought in 3 players :
Thierry Nevers (Reading)
Pierre Ekwah Elimby (Chelsea)
Armstrong Oko-Flex (Celtic)

Yes not really first team but then I could go through all the teams and many of the players that have come in are not first team. There have been less than a handful of real meaningful transfers so far (excluding promoted teams) and it will all hinge off some big move (hopefully not a Rice) like Kane which will give Spurs funds and they will snap up some players and so on. Without much revenue last season it is hard to spend unless someone like City throws a massive amount into the pool.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 08:29:44
If your not moving forward your going backwards
We need a striker, centre back and some one to replace anderson/ lingard just to put us on the same footing as last season
I had high hopes for this season which are fading fast
And last thing were all suffering due to C.V. financially but it hasn't stop us renewing our season tickets
So blow them cob webs of the wallet and get the boys some help.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 08:30:48
Yes that’s right SDL, there has been three. All brought exclusively by Ex. The man you say knows nothing and throws random names about. If you had heard of any of those three before he named them, your football knowledge is clearly far more superior than most. If you can find an article that broke any of those three players before Ex, I’ll stand corrected. Will you do the same if you can’t?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 12:27:54
Happy for you to point out when he mentioned Oko-Flex as an example and I will show where it was in the media. Don’t get too upset if Ex is your source for info but really he is all over the place.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 14:23:39
I don't think we are falling behind at all, not many around us are making any big moves at all at the moment, not sure where that notion comes from at all. Leicester seem to have done well, but they have Champions league football to offer good players, and i think Arsenal have done . OK. Saints are in turmoil, Palace have lost half a team, Everton have signed Gray for £1.8m and Townsend for free, Leeds have bought one left back to replace Alioski who left, Norwich lost one of their best players and have spread the income on average squad depth, Villa have bought the Norwich winger but stand to lose more in Grealish, Spurs lost Bale, Rose, Alderweireld, Vinicious and Lamela and got in Gil, Newcastle have nothing, Wolves have replaced Patricio with Sa and signed Nouri on perm (no gains), Burnley have replaced an average CB they lost with another average CB, and Brighton have a new CM (which won't fix their goals problem) . Not many real gains to be seen here with exception of Leicester.
On our signings: Ekwah looks very decent and could play a role this year, Okoflex is also close to breakthrough. These two are not our normal U23s buys who would have many years still to develop, they are on the brink NOW which shows some thought has gone in here. Conor Coventry has performed very well in pre-seaon and I think he could play a role as well. Lanzini has also performed well and hardly played last season for us, i don't think he is direct enough for a Moyes attacking midfielder, so i think he is best in CM or sold. Masuaku also coming back is a big boost for us.
Daka is probably the ONLY signing iv seen that i'm gutted about, and he was always choosing a PL team over us so its a bit of a stupid one to be gutted about. I do not think GSB are the issue currently, Moyes is a known dweller and it is clear other teams are holding up our business as well e. g. chelsea chasing Haaland holding up Tammy, Man Utd leveraging Jesse to try and get Dec same could be said about Chelsea and Tammy also.
Must have faith in Moyes!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2021 15:22:34
All good points nick, I've really liked the attacking trio of benrahma, fornals, bowen.

Lanzini has looked sharp and coventry has done well between then 2 and noble i think our cover/ rotation for rice and soucek isn't to bad.

The main gripe i have with our squad is that 1 or 2 injuries could see us very desperate i'm not sure on the other teams squad strength but We are desperate for a striker and a CB that's obvious we don't really have the players to rotate with all the extra games which would see us more likely to get an injury.

We seen this last season when we lost antonio and rice we still did well but if we had them that difference could have seen is in champions league. Lingards form masked it a bit but we don't have him now either.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2021 10:53:13
Good points Nick - except that Leicester is in the Europa League with us not CL.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2021 11:42:31
Absolutely agree we desparately need a ST and a CB as an absolute min. Failed transfer window if we do not. I do not want us to buy squad players just for the sake of Europa league though, I would rather get those fringe players and top dev players some more game time.
Injuries are a huge concern of course, but that's normal unless you are Chelsea or City.
Fair correction on Leicester LOL, but i think its fair to say they are way ahead of us in their progression, and as a striker i would much prefer to go there right now over us.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea and Manchester City have the same size squad as West Ham.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2021 00:49:18
@SDL

So this article was written on the back of his Ex’s podcast done two days before.

Funny you should only pick one out of the three other players to challenge. I await your evidence and apology SDL when you can’t find anything before. IT is very odd how grown men try to discredit him like this. There are other ways to puff your chest out….
