anyone heard or thie coufal who we are signing? he is a RB from slavia prague like soucek.

{Ed002's Note - The interest has been there for some time but the club cannot get their preferred choices and have returned to VC. I am not so sure it is a good idea.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

cheers ed see slavia confirm it but had no idea who he was so we are settling for like 5th choice haha typical west ham.

{Ed002's Note - After Cash, Celik, Sidibe and Sarr you mean? I guess so.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 12:24:44
5th was a random guess but bloody hell we are and always will be a shambles under sullivan.

{Ed002's Note - The money is not there unless it can be raised through sales. Selling the likes of Felipe Anderson and Lanzini has been a problem because of clubs suffering pandemic-related losses and not having the money to spend - further complicated by the wages. It is not the fault of the owners.}

Chelsea have offered Rudigar and Loftus Cheek in exchange for Rice, but I can't see any cash, now if they offered £30m plus them 2 would Moyes be intrested?

No thanks both are on silly wages.

Villa have signed Barkley on a season long loan, what a joke, we should have snapped him up, why are we not making moves For an experienced PL player when he is available Instead of an unproved overseas player
⚒⚒⚒⚒.

30 Sep 2020 16:57:28
Because he is on 115 k a week and we would have to move or sell an ATM yes he would have improved the side he is a good player but not a position that needs filling . if C.V. does to this season like last season the wage bill for a lot of clubs is huge.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 17:42:31
I’m a Barkley fan. He’s an England international as well. Barkley and £50m would have sorted it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 18:46:17
I’m a Barkley fan but the wages 115k a week is to much plus his loan fee we need a CB RB cover the only way you could justify 2 players leaving Wiltshire and one over.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 00:09:34
I'm not a BARKLEY fan gets in the final third and no end result for me I might do better or look better in a less expecting team but imo not good enough for what he earns. COYI.

Seen a few sources saying we have made a £20 Million pound bid for Fiorentina CB Nikola Milenkovic,

Haven't seen much of him but he's a big lad, plays CB and RB and only 22 years old, read that he is also a promising talent been scouted in the past by some big clubs,

What do people think?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Sep 2020 10:41:38
Never seen the lad play before. I like that he's young with potential to develop and sell on for more if he plays well.

We are linked with a lot of players at the moment. Feels like the scatter gun approach is back in effect.

Martin Hinteregger (CB) - Frankfurt
Jonathan Tah (CB) - Leverkusen
Nikola Maksimovic (CB) - Napoli
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) - Fiorentina
Dennis Hadžikadunić (CB) - Rostov
Zeki Celik (RB) - Lille
Daniele Rugani (CB) - Juventus
James Tavernier (RB) - Rangers
Joe Rodon (CB) - Swansea
Chris Ajer (CB) - Celtic

This list isn't exhaustive either and level of interest probably varies.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 13:27:25
Good post COYI. You’ve covered a lot of potentials there.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 00:21:20
Watch MELENKOVIC a few times very much in the mould of another SERBIAN International in NEMANJA VIDIC the ex UTD C/ B if he's half the player he was then yes please. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 00:24:16
Tonight emphasised my views that RICE isn't a C/ B for me and his best position is C/ DM or C/ M. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Oct 2020 00:38:31
Why the sell on for more we need to get away from being a selling club or feeder clubs for others. COYI.

Sky Sports saying we are bidding for Vladmir Coufal from Slavia Prague.

{Ed002's Note - Slavia Prague have indeed said that West Ham have returned - it is a surprise and he is well down the list for West Ham - but will be cheap and he is available.

Additionally, Nikola Maksimovic (CB) Everton, West Ham and Inter Milan have all spoken to Napoli about Maksimovic.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Sep 2020 14:29:42
I have to say I’m surprised we are in for Vladimir Coufal. Having seen his stats his average at best. His ratings are mid 6.5 out of 10 in Czech league.
I’m pretty sure Ben Johnson would be comparable to that. Just seems a lot of money for an average player.

{Ed002's Note - I agree.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 14:57:43
I know nothing of Coufal, but do we seriously believe we will get any more than an average at best player, with our financial implications? But after Sunday’s performance do we need any more than cover? ⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 15:14:22
Just seen that a loan bid for Coufal has been rejected?

{Ed002's Note - Given he is valued at very little I imagine they were surprised witha loan offer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 15:21:47
Ed, is he valued at £4m, if so why don’t they just buy him if they want him?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it would be any more Stevie. The lesson to be learned is don't buy players simply for the sake of it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 15:43:32
Soucek will, I’m sure, have an opinion on how good he might, or might not be.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 19:22:43
I’m with Ed on this one. Why buy for the sake of buying. Based upon his player ratings, it makes more sense to loan him and see how he shapes than buy him outright, no matter how low the price. If he’s say £4m and we pay him £20,000 a week which isn’t much. On a 4 year contract that’s still £8m wasted if he languishes in the reserves.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 19:37:30
I would seen they have seen enough videos of him and scouted him this loan move maybe due to fredericks limping of.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 20:36:15
As always we've left it too late and are now desperate.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 20:53:44
Mac. You need to realise that it’s a strange old time with clubs facing financial difficulty.
I don’t think it’s a case of leaving it too late. I think it’s a case if trying to bring in first choice players on a limited budget and having to look down the bottom of the list now.
What you will probably find is that instead of buying players like Tarkowski who we can’t afford and putting them straight into the side, the stance has probably changed and we will make do with what we have and start them and use some 2nd or 3rd choices as back up players.
This I was always going to be the plan if we couldn’t get players we want. However, if we can’t get the 1st choice players who improve the side then it’s better to loan other players until we top up the coffers, make do with what we have and buy the 1st choice players in next window.
Makes perfect business sense to me mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 22:00:10
Honest I never realised.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 22:05:44
Even if just 4 mill that is 4 mill less we have to spend on someone else. I can see why they might have tried the loan for cover but can’t see why we would buy.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 13:35:41
Then agents fee signing on fee.

28 Sep 2020 14:08:50
Would be great if we can get joe rodon deal done . Great signing.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Sep 2020 20:38:27
Why are reports always saying that we are mulling, pondering or preparing bids. Now linked with vanaken and preparing a bid for roden.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 20:37:17
If they want these players badly enough, find out the asking price and match it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 17:24:28
Mac. You say you understand the financial situation then talk about matching other clubs valuations of players we want.

Firstly, only clubs like Man City, Barcelona and Real Madrid can be flippant with their decisions, not other club.

Secondly, you clearly don’t grasp the implications of keeping a football club afloat and liquid.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 20:12:17
I think you need to pay attention to what the rest of the footballing world does to improve themselves. A totally different philosophy to west ham. They identify targets snd go get them not the gold and sullivan way of mulling pondering preparing bids which are a disgrace and when refused move down the list again and again finally settling on players through sheer desperation. Successful clubs get one or two that they need and only need and don't scatter bid to see who will bite at the cheapest price.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 20:53:21
Mac3.

I do understand the frustrations. As a fan, I too get riled by bidding low. What is important to note is that pellegrini spent over £180m in less than 2 years.
This is a massive investment by the club and potentially still have outstanding payments on many of these players.
For me, no matter how disappointing it is, I would rather see our club live to fight another day than go to the wall.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2020 11:46:47
Fantastic win last night shows we do have the fight to move on, the system worked well

ED002, I reading so much that Chelsea are coming in this week for a bid for Rice, if they really wanted why wait to the last min to bid?, do you think they may offer a couple of players plus money for Rice, to entice to sale, maybe a DM involved in the bid?
Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - If Chelsea do make an offer they will look to include a player in the deal, but I suspect WHU would prefer cash if they are even considering a sale.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Sep 2020 16:20:49
Ed02 I think it’s a bit late in the day to sell we would need to replace dec which won’t be easy if we had lost yesterday the pressure would been on the board to come up with cash for which may have pushed the rice sale through. I don’t expect him to be at west ham next year but given the current market circumstances if he is sold do it in the beginning of the window when it does benefit us I know some fans are calling for or Barkley Kante/ 140 k a week Barkley 1/ 120 a week our biggest problem is an unbalanced squad and our main target is a CB does mean moyes is looking to go to a 352.

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Soucek could cover but WHU need the money and a CB is top priority. They will resist I would think if an offer is made. Obviously Kante is not an option but Barkley certainly is.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2020 21:38:48
We would lose Souceks goals if he has to sit deeper like Rice. Really doesn't make sense why we would sell our best player with so little time to get replacements. If a mammoth bid comes in at the start of a window and you have plenty of time to reshape the squad then maybe we should consider it but not now that ship has sailed.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 14:57:35
And Barkley on 100/ 120 k a week I’m not saying Barkley would not improve the team but we have an abundance of ATM we just need to balance the squad out and play to our strengths we always seem play a right footer on the left and if yarms is on the right we have a very narrow midfield with very little space to play in. they very rarely put crosses into the box Anderson will put a poor cross in or run into to many bodies.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2020 19:26:00
The timing is well and truly ludicrous if Chelsea bid for Rice. Even if they have is £80m (which they won’t) we will never find a replacement on time.
If they want Rice, then they should make an agreement with West Ham to take him at the end of the season. This is IF and ONLY IF Rice wants to go and the deal is a good one for us.
The only thing they will do coming in with a bid this late, is unsettle Rice and affect his game.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2020 18:04:28
Is Snodgrass injured, he's not even on bench, Haller and Anderson not starting?

We are playing really well keep the faith lads COYI.

Yeh doing great but Fornals off and Yarmelenko on👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2020 21:10:44
Fair play. I didn't see that coming! Played really well tonight and I can see why Moyes is trying to keep the faith with his formation, because when it works, it works. Still think we'd have scored more had Haller started in a 2 up top though! ;)

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Sep 2020 21:17:06
What a great all round performance, never saw that coming👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

Reports are saying Rice has agreed a 5 year deal with Chelsea!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

26 Sep 2020 14:28:06
Seen the reports but if the board haven’t given permission to speak to them blatant tap up and unless they meet the amount 80 million cash up front then no deal sell him in the summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2020 14:55:51
We will see if he’s in the squad tomorrow?

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2020 18:02:10
Some mysterious injury might keep him. out lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2020 20:18:34
Any truth in the rumour that declan rice has agreed terms with chelsea and now pushing for a move. If it is i'd suggest we get players out of chelsea that they are willing to release on. loan or sale. Berkely, Loftus cheek come to mind.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Sep 2020 22:04:37
West Ham must keep players like Declan

Over 100 games played virtually injury free and a regular England International where do you get that every day

Reminds me of the way we lost RIO 30 years ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 06:31:18
I like to think that we can hold on to Dec but i can't see that happening, we need players decent players to come in and let's face it the only way is to sell Rice he will free up enough money to buy 2-3 players with the money from previous sales, if we don't the writing is on the wall RELEGATION LOOMS
Cn anyone see any other options that will work because i cant.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 08:38:46
At least the money for Rio was used to build the old Dr Martens stand at Upton Park. Rice's sale will go straight into DGS back pocket.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 10:43:34
Rice is not going to save us on his own, the truth is we as a club simply do not deserve an outstanding player, why should he be held back, you can’t keep a dissatisfied player, look at Arnautovic! £30m plus a couple of excess to requirements from Chelsea would be a good deal, cash in while we can! ⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 11:17:54
You play with the Dec you’ve got until something else is on the cards.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 14:33:19
There is a strong reason for Dec to stay, and that is the fact that he will get experience captaining a side in the PL with us this season. If he is confident in his ability, then there WILL be suitors for him next summer again, and proving himself as a captain will only help him develop and get bigger interest.
His contract is long, so i do not think WHU will lose out too much on his value if he stays.
No guarantees in today's football, i hope he stays though.
I fear the main battle at the moment is Sullivan and transfers. Sullivan spent big on Pellegrini's wishlist and look where it got us. Now Moyes wants to spend all our budget on one player, and Sullivan is nervous to do so after all the spending under MP. Understandable IMO, he may hesitate putting all his eggs in Moyes's basket like he did for Pellegrini, Moyes did buy Hugill after all. If there is any time to align with the manager though it is now, and CB is CLEARLY an area we need to improve.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 14:37:21
Bidefordjohno

I think how we performed against Arsenal the other night shows that we can stay in the premier league and not be relegated. True, if we want to push on, we need new players, but I still think we can improve on last season with Bowen and Soucek.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 15:22:41
Nick, my sole reason for saying let him go as I said was, no point in trying to shackle a player that could be resentful of WH refusing his move if there is indeed an offer for him?
He seems a very, stable, level headed man possibly mature beyond his years, if he felt he needed more experience in any footballing way that he could get with us, to consolidate his future in football then he would remain! I think we can can kick on with or without Rice but obviously if he remained it would be a massive bonus for us! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 22:12:46
I'm a yes or no man if he wants to go let him go it does nobody any good by digging your heels in and saying he ain't going, we don't know what's be said so its pointless guessing if or not he's asked for the move to Chelsea my brothers quite well informed by people at Chelsea and its gone quiet on RICE so weather declans trying to get talks moving I doubt but if he's going to be sold please let's not do it near the end of the window and leaving us no time to get a replacement in but with SGB nothing would surprise me. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 22:33:11
I say let him go. His value ‘may’ reduce if we struggle, plus Chelsea could offer us some players plus cash for him should we want. Let’s be honest, most Chelsea players would improve our 11. If we could get 2 of them plus £20-30m we cannot lose. Specifically as we hold the trump card. Rice.
Loftus Cheek, Barkley, Abrahams, Alonso, Rudiger would improve our team.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 23:35:29
Cant replace rice.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2020 08:46:05
I’ve never heard any mention of him wanting to leave and recruitment has been difficult enough Barkley would improve the squad but it in defense but on 120 k a week. the problem we have players ain’t joining us to win trophy’s it’s for above average wages which makes them difficult to move on .

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2020 18:05:45
if he chooses to leave I say let the lad go to where he feels is right for him and his career and then if we can benefit from it so be it. Above all, west ham football club comes first and if we could get a great deal out of it we would be crazy to refuse.
