Far be it from me to praise Spurs players, but some things are bigger than football and well done to Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon in the match against Newcastle for helping to save a fans life.

Looks like the Newcastle takeover is going to go through. I think that means they will have the richest owners in world football.

We definitely will need new owners in the next couple years to establish ourselves as a regular in Europe.

Yes if you consider in a season or two Newcastle are likely to be up around the top with Man City, Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool, it doesn't leave a lot of room for qualification for Europe without spending money.

Might take longer than a season or 2 considering they could still drop down to the championship this season but definitely they will be a force in the future with that kind of money at their disposal. I've lived in Newcastle for the past 20 years so it's en extra Derby for me, the irony for me is as much as they hate Mike Ashley if it wasn't for him running the club the way he has done they would be a lot less attractive for a super rich investor as they can come in and spend a lot of money without having to worry about FFP.

Their first job is to distance their club from Mike Ashly so i think their priority will to get a high profile manager in to replace Steve Bruce, if they are smart enough they should bring in Shearer mebe not as manager but some sort of advisor which the fans would love, it would take 3-4 months to get the right manager unless they already have one in mind, it will take time just like Man. City did when they were taken over replacing Mark Hughs with Mancini.
There first priority is to keep in the Premiership so Bruce will be their until Christmas.
What a great club to buy i wish them well although i wished they had purchased WH.

I see Rio has suggested they go after Sterling, Lingard and Rice, it was bad enough when he was suggesting Man U go after Rice, but Newcastle? does Rio have no loyalty now he is a BT pundit? Maybe he isn't allowed to, but backing PAI, saying how he supports the club and the takeover attempt, and then suggesting other clubs go after West Ham players, he should stop trying to pretend he cares as he has made his position very clear.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Oct 2021 08:29:31
Attracting top players will be hard until they climb the league, i think it will take 2-3 seasons before they start competing for the premiership then the champions league.
It will take time but what a journey they are going on i say good luck to them and to buy a club like Newcastle for 300 mil. was good business.
Their is no way any one will buy WH at the valuation which has been talked about for a club that doesn't even own their own ground.

22 Oct 2021 09:19:15
Their first hurdle is persuading St Maximin to stay.

04 Oct 2021 07:02:50
Wow what a load of rubbish Simon Jorden has spouted off, we all know D. Rice will leave this season and to think if WH are offered 100mil. we would try to hold onto him get real mate.

We have a great player but he will leave that's for sure anything over 85 mil. would be wonderful providing a large % goes to reinvesting, instead of mouthing off about WH look at yourself mate didn't you take Palace into administration.

08 Oct 2021 01:45:04
To be honest I am not as convinced as you that he will leave this season. But if we get offered 100 Million I would think he would.

Football Insider reporting West ham trying to sign Winston McKenzie from Juve. Eds any clarification on this.

{Ed002's Note - Weston McKennie (CM) Fiorentina would like to take the player and Juventus are looking to add a leading CM and need to raise funds and offload, ideally Ramsey and Arthur - but an option would be to sell Weston McKennie to Bayern Munich who are cash rich and have shown an interest - although it seems to be waning. A representative of Juventus was in London for talks with Chelsea (this was only last week) and was asked to meet with West Ham who have declared an interest. I am not so sure the player would be interested. Juventus will keep him if they cannot raise €30M from a sale.

I see Reidy has reached agreement with the club and is leaving. Not much of a fan of Kiwis living in Oz, but he is an exception. Wonderful 10+ years with the club and he always gave everything I felt. Will always be remembered for that goal at the Boleyn, a special night, wish him all the best going forward.

Totally agree would have been nice for the fans to say goodbye to Winston properly at the London Stadium. Come on West Ham in it him to the next home game. Will never forget that last night at Upton Park.

Who is our penalty taker? When Noble came on I expected him to score, but sadly Gea made a super stop.

Rice doesn't appear a penalty taker. Why not Bowen or Cresswell? They appear to hit the ball the hardest aka Stewart/ Dicks. Only a thought, but it needs sorting.

Believable6 Unbelievable0

20 Sep 2021 23:56:10
They do need to find someone - would have thought someone takes some in training well enough.

MarkWHU i can run with Cressy - he always fills me with confidence. Nice unassuming man too.

22 Sep 2021 14:07:39
George, I wouldn’t argue with that choice, I think left footed players strike a ball better than a right footer? They should take advice from the Keeper, what is the worst type of penalty to face! Keepers always go to ground either way on pen’s, they never jump or dive upwards so the choice is easy, needs practice, hit it high and hard, if you can’t hit it high, at least put your laces through it, not the silly soft side foot! 🤣⚒⚒⚒⚒.

As we all know Aaron plays almost as winger when he is a full back or wing back Chelmsford. I suspect his quality with the "wrong" foot comes from that policy of wingmen deliberately playing on other wing so they can cut inside for a shot.

26 Sep 2021 09:03:54
Vlasic took the pens, with considerable success at his last club.

BBC reporting Lingard rejects new contract. Sell Yarmo in January and divert wages?

Believable5 Unbelievable0

08 Sep 2021 08:22:16
Lingard s contract ends in Summer 2022, so his financial worth to them is decreasing rapidly monthly? Unless he is playing hardball with ManU, Yarmo is an absolute drain on resources as you say, so. not to many would be unhappy to see him go even though financially we will take a massive loss, but less than on Anderson?
So surely a move to us would be upmost in his mind, even though he will have lots of offers? He was an instant hero with us, he knows he will be a guaranteed starter in the first team and his relationship with DM and staff would clinch a move to us imo?
If that was the case, the player to move over for him would be Benrahma I think, although he is now coming good, but DM is still not his biggest fan imo, Fornals and Bowen are much more DM type of players, so interesting to see if Lingard really intends to leave ManU? âš’âš’âš’âš’âš’.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Sep 2021 09:18:22
Lingard was great for us but trailed off towards the end off the last 5 games. We all agree Lingard is a great player and had a wonderful spell at WH
Now ill ask the question do we really need him? now that Benrahma starting to shine who would u drop to include Lingard. I say its a great time for Moyes he has 3 months to asses how Vlasic and Kral work out, it looks like Moyes and co. are starting to build a team we have waited so long for, yes we have had some great players in the last 20 years but never a team with so much potential as the players we have now.
Another centre forward would be nice and get rid of the remaining dross. perfect.

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Sep 2021 10:11:30
Yes, even if Lingard makes contact with a view to coming back, Moyse has plenty of time to look at Vlasic before January.

I think the tide is turning re Lingard and the ball is more in our court than his.

Isn’t it good that the interesting times we are living in are positive ones?

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Sep 2021 10:14:24
As a very expensive drain on resources, who rarely plays, we should move Yarmolenko on. Especially with the arrival of Vlasic.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Sep 2021 12:59:00
I think Jesse is doing the right thing. I think UTD were asking too much for him considering his age, we got Vlasic for the same price and he has 5 years more in him so a chance we could profit or break even, with Jesse it was not the case.
Jesse may not play as much as he wants at UTD this term, but he WILL have offers either in Jan or at end of contract. Whereas if he signs for UTD he is basicaly accepting backup/ rotation player status as they will only spend big on new arrivals over time that will get ahead of him.
We get time to assess others, and maybe Yarmo/ Lanzini go next summer and Jesse is the man. or maybe he has beter option elsewhere. I know he tailed off slightly last season, but he was still brilliant!

Agree4 Disagree0

12 Sep 2021 22:03:58
I get it LINGARD wanted to stay and fight for his place at UTD but i ain't buying a bar of it this is what i think he did after being successful at ours he then said he would stay and fight for his place knowing that UTD would more than likely sign a player or 2 so he thought a bigger club than west ham would come in for him and that didn't happen now i don't think he set out to do it but he used us to help out a bigger move and i'm not saying that's wrong but basically what i'm saying is he has no interest in WEST HAM so why should we take him back because he has no other option call me oldschool but i wouldn't be unhappy not to see him in a west ham shirt again.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Sep 2021 04:58:23
Definitely Lingard tried to use the loan and our interest to get some better deal but why shouldn't he? If he comes back in January great, if not so be it too. I think Vlasic could be a good pickup, jury still out on Benhrama, his performance against the Saints was absolutely woeful and surprised it took DM so long to hook him.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Sep 2021 21:31:55
I said I'm not saying he was wrong doing what he did but I only want players in a west ham shirt who want to play for west ham and not their bank accounts which is what most players want all of the time let's get players in claret and blue who want to play for west ham you never hear soucek Or coufal mentioning money they are my kind of player.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Sep 2021 21:33:29
And in pre season everybody was lauding benrhama as the second coming he has one bad game and yes 2 bob how fical some fans are.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Sep 2021 04:18:39
I don't know too many who thought pre-season anything different about Benhrama. I think the jury is still out. He has some ability and flashes, he can play some good passes, but overall he doesn't appear to work hard enough for the team and tends to fade out of the game if things aren't going his way. Let's see how he goes but he needs to be more consistent and work hard, anyone I know says exactly that.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Sep 2021 08:19:54
I have never rated Benrahma to highly, best I can say about him is, he has contributed more at least than Haller/ Anderson/ Wilshere put together, so that’s not saying much. Yes he has some decent touches, but shouldn’t every player at least do something in a PL club shirt that contributes to a team.
He is definitely not a DM type of player, he needs to work harder and release the ball sooner instead of trying to impress, keep it simple in tight situations, but any player should do that automatically unless they have exceptional ability!
Looking forward as all of us for tonight’s first Euro game.
COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Sep 2021 02:29:46
In pre-season the world and his wife were saying what a player benrahma is now he's no good and if he ain't DM type of player why did we buy him and why don't he play KRAL if DM likes hard workers the games changed chelms its more the flair type of players that's why the big strapping No9 who puts himself about ain't about the best striker in the world LEWANDOSKI is a flair player who scores great goals look at UTD fernandes pogba ronaldo sancho people have to realise the game has changed so i think DM has done a decent job i just don't like his approach and tactics against bigger teams.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Sep 2021 23:58:08
Again Harrison, I don't think everyone was saying what a player Benrahma is, most people said he has ability but doesn't work back and can lose the ball a lot. Sometimes I think people have a view and then look for things that support that view, as the jury has always been out on him for the main.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Sep 2021 11:21:07
As regards attacking MF - Yarmo seems to have been signed as a kind of winger but in his early tenure; also seemed to play deep lying forward. If he is a striker he needs to start scoring goals otherwise we have enough AM players and should move him on ASAP.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Oct 2021 23:39:49
I read the reports after one pre season game with rave reviews SDL its going to be another HALLER for me a player not playing in his favourite position BENRAHMA is a no10 playinfg behind a frontman for me DM is getting away with it with FORNALS who imo is a no10 i see him play there for villareal you can't expect them to play on the wing as neither player has pace and for me SDL a winger needs to have pace just look at yarmolenko blistering pace🤣 but i hate managers playing people out of position ok if needed to play as cover for a game or two but not reguarly and imo you won't get the best out of players doing this.

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 09:16:00
I have to say it lookslike we've done some great busness
And with Rob Newman takes over transfers from today i have to think things will only get better.

If we are all honest, with the exception of up front we are probably not too far off being a completely stocked team.

We have three goalkeepers in Areola, Fabianski and Randolph.

Five centre backs in Dawson, Diop, Ogbonna, Reid and Zouma. Although I could see Reid maybe going out on loan when the loan window is open.

Two left backs in Cresswell and Masuaku.

Three right backs in Coufal, Fredericks and Johnson. With Johnson also able to play on the left.

Four central midfielders by trade in Kral, Noble, Rice and Soucek.

Six wingers / attacking midfielders in Benrahma, Bowen, Fornals, Lanzini, Vlasic and Yarmolenko. With Fornals and Lanzini able to drop deeper if needed and potentially play the others as a false number 9 if needed.

And Antonio up top.

If Moyes is confident he can utilise attacking midfielders and wingers in a false 9 role when Antonio needs a rest then I trust his judgement.

That is not a shabby squad and I think there is enough there to cover as and when first teamers aren’t available.

{Ed001's Note - I thought the loan window was done away with?}

Agree5 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 11:41:23
Excellent start to the season, all round.

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 14:42:59
I must of missed that completely Ed. Fair enough.

{Ed001's Note - it was only a couple of seasons ago, but I am sure that it was. I might be mistaken though, it did happen once.}

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 15:11:12
Die_4, Just to point out that the addition of Kral makes the side very versatile. If we have problems with centre backs, either he, or Rice have both done the job before.

We also have the very, very promising Baptiste, who is highly rated at the club.

I’m really looking forward to how Moyse sets up his “best” side, and how he rotates as the matches increase in frequency.

Agree4 Disagree0

02 Sep 2021 18:44:41
I have my reservations on krals quality I think he's a grafter that gets stuck in, looking at his stats he does give a lot of fouls away and his passing stats aren't great hope I'm wrong.

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Sep 2021 08:00:15
Trust Moyse’s judgement. His picks have been well justified since his return to us.

Agree6 Disagree0

03 Sep 2021 18:40:22
Spot on. Who actually thought Dawson was a good buy. Not me for one and happy to be proved wrong. Although he has looked ropey of late!

Hi lads. I have had to have a chuckle. About 2 weeks ago when I read a rumour about Divock Origi being an option at West Ham, I saw a voting pole and 90% of voters voted against it. The same vote was out today and I see 85% of fans are all for it now.
How fickle are we as fans? 😂😂😂.
Jonathan Bamba and Kral would be good additions but agree, an out and out striker would be ideal. My view is that Moyes has seen something in either Vlasic or Bamba where he thinks he can convert them into a striker like he did with Antonio and Arnautovic . My view would be its Bamba he wants to convert as he is powerful and fast like Antonio and Arnautovic.
Moyes knows what he’s doing let’s be fair.
Keep the faith lads.

COYI.

COYI, yeah agree totally👍I have always had faith in DM and his staff, shrewd unassuming man that doesn’t get carried away with doing well, as he knows how quickly it can change!
If he gets another couple in that’s been rumoured, then I hope a certain poster on here feels embarrassed about their previous posts concerning lack of signings etc etc slagging DM and our club off in general! 😂🤣⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Hi Chelmsford1944.

I wouldn’t be too harsh on the doubters. We’ve all been through the ups and downs of transfer markets. The biggest issue is these self proclaimed journalists who write any old crap they want, linking us to players we aren’t even looking at and generally just mischief making.
Make no mistake, GSB have a lot to answer for but we are all in their debt for bringing out club back from the brink of collapse after the Icelandic’s got us into massive debt.
They are multimillionaires but when I see fans asking why clubs like Everton can do threat business so quickly and we can’t, clearly they don’t conceive the fact that the Everton owners are billionaires and our owners aren’t.
I think Gold and Sullivan are a pair of sods really, but they have spent money over the years. 👍👍.

Agree4 Disagree0

31 Aug 2021 18:49:18
Well its a rumour site so people will have options on transfers, mostly its a good group here who just want us to do well, sometimes people can see what we need and frustration boils over its life.

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Aug 2021 19:58:06
Areola, Zouma, Vlasic and now, Kral (soon) .

I think this has been an excellent window.

Moyse much prefers to do it slowly, but surely.

Agree5 Disagree0

31 Aug 2021 21:13:02
Been a good window and it may not be finished yet.

31 Aug 2021 21:38:24
Kral done.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2021 22:55:43
Just been reading that we may have dodged a bullet with Jonathan Bamba. His form has dropped off a great deal of late and I think I read “he’s playing like a player who wants to leave”
This would potentially be a reason Moyes never moved in earnest for him. Do we need half hearted players who blow hot and cold? We need consistency and more importantly, we need a team of players who graft hard and gel well with the rest of the squad.

I think that even though ideally we needed an out and out striker, we have enough firepower in midfield to play a makeshift striker in Antonio’s absence and still get enough goals to hang in there with top 6.

Well. :: I can be an optimist right? 😁😁😁👍👍👍.

Agree5 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 01:07:55
Fair play to DM and the board left it late but on paper that looks like some really good business!

Wow, what a day. Alex Kral and Jonathan Bamba also possibly COYI :-)
