I see West ham were placed 3rd in the average attendance figure for this Season following Man Utd and Arsenal.

I do wish they would stop calling it Attendance as we all know its based on ticket Sales including Season Ticket holders who don't show up

What do you guys think?

Any truth to a rumour I have heard regarding interest in a Bristol city goalkeeper as back up? can't remember his name (was drinking with a few people who would know but had too many)

I've read that West Ham are prepared to meet West Broms asking price for Rondon £16.5m?

they are coming thick and fast now just see we are in for grealish to.

I rate Rondon, would have liked to have seen us make a move for him when he went to Newcastle👍.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 May 2019 17:14:27
who would you guys prefer, Rondon or Mitrovic, I also see Arsenal are in for Gomez?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 18:02:23
Apparently Mitrovic according to posters on here and Ed has an attitude problem, we don’t want another Arnie, so providing Rondon doesn’t have an attitude he would be my choice of the two!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 23:42:54
Saw rumour Carroll to get a new incentivised contract - I hope not and I doubt it. Shelvey keeps popping up, not really a fan. Marega, if we can’t get Gomez, yes please but won’t he want European football too? Etheridge - good safe pair of hands as backup to Fabianski.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 11:54:32
Rondon for me.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2019 17:08:56
Costahamner I don’t know you but do you really think we only need to swap you for Robson, if so let’s get it done :P.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 17:48:18
Rondon not Robson damn iOS.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2019 15:11:59
Seen reports that Marega is most likely to be sold to a prem club, and West Ham is his most likely destination?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 May 2019 21:38:38
Gomez for me because of his age, but Marega is a very decent 2nd best.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 16:31:01
I really don't think Gomez will come to us bigger clubs will be in for him, Marega is a more realistic target.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 May 2019 16:49:34
why not both, if we want to chalenge next years top 6.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 18:25:53
Have to agree with you we have spent 2 much time in past on strikers Lacazette batsuyi spelling. only to find we have been wasting our time. arnie will stay unless silly offer comes in. carroll n Perez will go Chico has a yr left on his contract on a decent wage and we want to recoup part of the 16 mill we paid out for him. and possibly promote one of the youngsters to 4th choice the big decision will be with which youngsters MP promotes. With the likes off holland Johnson and others looking to break into the squad. in regards to trot goalie he may go out on loan for the season and we will bring in cover for 12 months.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 09:34:04
Remember all . its not who the club want its . who they can attract . two very different things.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 14:32:38
Exactly so we will be competing against wolves Everton Leicester for similar players anyone beeing chased by a top 6 we will struggle to sign.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 16:13:21
There’s always an issue with competing v the top six for players.

Our best arguments are that we are targeting Europe and that the incoming player would be an automatic first team pick if he stayed fit and on form.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 19:11:06
Exactly but I get the impression that these days ( please input Ed's) that it's more about talking the agent round first then let him / her talk the player into it, I know that's a bit of a short line and leaves lots out ( player ambition just to start with ) but football is a business first and a spectator sport second . wow what have I put in my tea?

{Ed002's Note - Jason you are largely correct - the transfer process is based on the club and the agent working together.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2019 12:02:05
Not sure on what your view is guys - But i'm absolutely sick to death of seeing Jonjo Shelvey linked to us. He's not the sort of player we want/ need, awful attitude and temperament. if he was half as good as what he thought he was, he'd be twice as good as he actually is!

There's a long, long list of players i'd like to see in a West Ham shirt before we resort to him. Noble makes him look bang average.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

15 May 2019 15:13:19
I’ve never really got the Shelvey hype either. Benitez is no fool and he let Shelvey wallow out of his first team for ages.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 00:04:58
Each to there own point of view, but for me I'd say yes to him, he has the range of pass that we miss, the boy can ping the ball about for fun . Unless Jack gets and stays fit then I'd bring him in .

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 08:26:54
Totally agree, Shelvey bad attitude, overrated and inconsistent. If he wasn't a Hammers fan probably never even hear about him. I'd steer clear, unless was a freebie and worth a gamble. But he's not getting into a team fighting relegation for a reason!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 03:33:33
He was injured for quite a while with a bad injury and took a while to win his place back Because of the emergence of longstaff and form of Hayden he also had ki and diame to compete with.

Papers are linking Hayden with us and many other London clubs as he wants to return south maybe the eds can shed some light on this?

Geordies have been raving about how good shelvey has been since he's got there I'd say this has been his worst season yet because of that injury but he does have a great range of passing, doesn't shirk a tackle can score and create. Take him out of a defensive Benitez side and put him in a possession based Pellegrini side with better players you could see all his qualities, That's what I think anyway.

{Ed001's Note - he actually didn't get back in because he was not training properly. He has a few issues with attitude.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 10:08:40
West ham love a challenge ed lol or a waith and stray :)

{Ed001's Note - that's true. If you can get their heads right you can pick up a quality player on the cheap. However Shelvey is not a quality player. He is slow, cumbersome, has an awful temperament and could pick a fight in an empty room. He also has a real problem with concentration, does not work hard in training, injury-prone (another thing the Hammers seem to like in a signing) because of his lifestyle, does not look after himself outside of training, hence his well documented weight issues and will give the ball away with those Hollywood passes of his far more often than they will get through. They do look good in a highlight reel but over 90 minutes he is a liability. He was horrible when we had him at Liverpool and he has regressed since then.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 10:12:57
Appreciate the info. I would hope he's quite far down on the list in that position just a case if we can get our first choice targets maybe.

{Ed001's Note - would it not be better to look at an academy player if you can't get anyone better than Shelvey? Sometimes it is better not to buy than just buy anyone!}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 10:57:27
Agree with Ed, gone are the days when we thought Bowyer and Dier were a calm partnership.

{Ed001's Note - they were certainly entertaining, but usually for the opposition's benefit!}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 11:01:24
Thanks ed :)

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 13:58:12
Well for me Noble is still doing the business and it's a good point you make of promoting from within it's just a case of if they are good enough. We have Cullen, Coventry, Lewis in the youth set up maybe one of those could step and become Nobles long term replacement. Also edi Fernandes returning from loan contrary reports on if he's staying or going.

Ceballos looks like the most exciting player we have been linked to in that position that would be my priority if he would come here.

Kessie also been linked with us and who ever gets Sangare is getting a special player in my opinion .

{Ed001's Note - Hammers have an excellent youth system, may as well use it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 14:31:37
Think it’s old newspaper talk he ain’t for us like Ed said bad attitude doesn’t want to track back and picks up cards regularly.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 22:21:02
Surely Pellegrini doesn’t want Arnautovic, Mitrovic and Gomez as our 3 strikers? All the same type of player.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

12 May 2019 11:05:28
If Arnie stays and both Chicha and Perez follow Carroll out of the door, we will need at least one more heavy hitter up front.

I would prefer Gomez on what I’ve seen, but would take Mitrovic as a reasonably close 2nd best, if that’s all we can get. Marega might be a good option to explore as well. I’m sure that MP and H are looking elsewhere too.

The increasing hype about Ceballos sounds encouraging, but I won’t hold my breath. I wonder if MP has more confidence about Wilshere as he’s been talking him up recently. He looked top class v Soton, when he came on.

I think we’ll see some playing time for Holland and Coventry too next season, most likely in cup matches.

I would promote Trott to second keeper and save new keeper cash to put towards outfield players.

A newly fit Yarmalenko, plus Anderson, Antonio and Lanzini should cover both attacking flanks without the need to bring in another winger, though there is talk of Brahimi on a free. Holland looks a good stand in, too.

As I’ve said before, Diangana should go on loan for a season to develop some end product.

It would be great to end this year on a high by beating Watford and nicking 9th.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 May 2019 13:54:02
Newly fit yarmolenko sounds optimistic giving the severity of his injury and our record. We have lanzini in a similar predicament aswell. We can only hope its behind them and they can return to level they can play it. Certainly wouldn't be against us going for another winger benahrama looks very tricky and would be exciting to watch, I like the look of Jarrod Bowen mentioned below also. Maybe someone like Marega or Keita is a good shout who can play out wide or through the middle might be a smart move considering our budget and how many players it seems like we want to bring in.

As for Mitro a few of my geordie friends were saying how he's the type to cause issues when not in the team, sulking, bad attitude that sort of thing. That being said MP does like to play 2 up top and arnautovic can play out wide.

ceballos would be an absolute coup at his age and price. Sceltical on this though.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2019 16:59:43
Sceltical.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 15:00:12
I think Iron Al is right in regards to Mitrovic. Petulant and moody. We already have one like that and if he stays we will have two and if he goes please don’t replace like for like!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 13:35:04
Ed how much interest do we have in Jarrod Bowen? Great potential signing if true imo.

{Ed002's Note - I am only aware of interest from Leicester.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 May 2019 21:20:16
All this about MASUAKU can't defend the world and his wife knows this even MOYES worked it out he's a LEFT MIDFIELD/ WINGER and why oh why was MP continuing to playhim at L/ B surely he's done his homework and he played further up the pitch as he cannot defend fact. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2019 08:00:32
He can't defend but for what I'm seeing maybe wrong but if pellers gets his cm to help rice and we play more possession football his attacking will be at the fore not his defending and then hel be perfect with his skills just needs a better end product.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 May 2019 12:31:01
Agree with Mistley, look at all the top 6 and they play attacking full backs with 2 top CBs and a world class holing dcm. If team improves, we will need a player like masu so worth keeping.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 May 2019 08:10:01
i rate Masuaku and always have, great pace and attacking winger, no he can’t defend to well but it’s obvious that’s not he’s strong position but it’s not his fault if that’s where a manager deploys him! He is a worker and grafter and an excellent crosser of the ball, big mistake if we sell him imo!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2019 11:08:55
I’m not convinced by Masuaku. He can look great flying down the flank, but I need to see more concrete contributions. I wonder how many key passes, or assists he has managed this year per minutes played.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2019 23:37:30
Eds surely we’ll be priced out by Celta and all the other clubs who want Maxi Gomez?
What does Pellegrini see in him that he wants him so much anyway?

{Ed002's Note - Probably and Maxi Gomez (S) is also very unlikely as he wants European football. But there are other options the club has been considering as I have explained:
Aleksandar Mitrovic (S) is a now realistic target and very much the Andy Carroll type player - but there will be a lot of competition - time to talk with Fulham
Florian Aye (S)
Edin Dzeko (S) an enquiry has been made with his agent and if the price is low enough WHU may look to an offer, leaving enough funds to add another striker - but both Inter Milan and Everton are looking to him as well
Max Kruse (S) - has been watched by West Ham
Dario Benedetto (S) is a Plan C for Roma and RBL and suggested WHU makes no sense given his goals have dried up, his injuries over the past couple of years and he will only be able to get a one year Tier 5 work permit initially
Duvan Zapata (S) - the player was not keen on a move to West Ham in January and the €50M asking price has already scared of Newcastle and Inter Milan - WHU could return but I doubt he would be first choice, certainly at the asking price.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 May 2019 09:29:08
Not holding my hopes for Maxi Gomez, but would love it to happen.
MP made good signings last year. Ok, Sanchez, Wilshere, and Perez have all not been great (injuries for the most part) but they were all in-expensive backups at the end of the day. He hasn't had an attempt at buying us a decent striker yet, and I trust him and Husillos to get someone better than what we have for next season. Same goes for a high energy Centre midfielder.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 May 2019 16:48:46
It was a good window for MP. Tbf Perez has scored some important goals for us and as you pointed out injuries with the others. I'm just hoping sully keeps his input to a minimum, MP and MH should be backed all the way.

Let's not play silly buggers with our negotiations either.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2019 09:47:30
To be fair, with Wheelchair we knew what we were getting but definitely worth keeping as can be a match winner when fit and able. At least he is on pay as you play.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2019 11:13:38
The word most of us associate with Wilshere is “if. ”

At his best he is world class. His cameo against Southampton was terrific. MP knows what he can do and has recently raved about his training.

An injury free season for him would almost certainly bag us another 10 points. if.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 May 2019 07:23:33
Glen, Wheelchair as far as I understand is on a 3 year contract, not pay as you play, which makes him imo the worst and most stupid buy ever for us, as everybody knew except MP of his record! I think he is on £90k then £45k when not playing, that’s not good financial business and absolutely unfair to other players that are capable, you can’t live on past glory forever, but he’s doing all right out of it! All he is capable of is 15 minutes when fit, with the odd through ball and flick which some fans think is wonderful when he does it! When I see him run and chase during a full season without his hands on his hips moaning and waving his arms about and going down each time he’s tackled, maybe my opinion will change, needs to pack up smoking as well whilst a professional!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2019 18:04:01
Reckon it'll be a very busy summer at the Hammers. Players like Carroll, Adrian, Reid going, along with possibilities like Cresswell or Masuaku, Chicha, Arnie, Perez.

{Ed002's Note - Obiang, Nasri, Oxford, maybe Lanzini.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 May 2019 22:56:20
Any idea where Lanzini might go? And who we would look to replace with?

All answers appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - No but WHU are wary of his injury history and could make a mistake over any new contract. Vazquez, OLmo or even Brahimi could replace him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 07:23:29
Why sell Masuaku? That would be a big mistake for me, not so good defensively but great going forward with pace and crosses!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 09:20:03
He plays left back for us though Chelms, first thing he needs to do is be able to defend properly, especially given the amount of goals we conceded this season.
He has been good the last few weeks granted, but can he do this consistently over a season?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 15:02:01
How about Anderson moving inside and Arthur moving forward - just a tjought.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 18:41:38
Saddened to hear of any suggestion about Lanzini leaving. I really hope it does not happen.

{Ed002's Note - But realistically, however good he is it only works when available - and Andy Carroll if completely fit would cause defences all sorts of grief. West Ham need to ponder any new contract carefully - that is the reality. If fit then great, else, more money down the pan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2019 19:48:34
Lanzini looked proper off the pace when he came back. Think Anderson has stolen his show.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2019 11:19:20
I’ve just commented about the ifs we all associate with Wilshere - perhaps the same applies to Lanzini. We know how good he has been before his horrendous injury.

His training stats should give a good indication of how close he is getting to where he was general fitness wise.

I would give him some more playing time today v Watford and concentrate on his match sharpness during the summer and pre-season.

He still has plenty to offer WH.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2019 21:53:51
Loving the sound of Dani Ceballos, but do we think he would come?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 May 2019 08:35:53
That is the question goose, as always our targets ( or press reported targets ) seem to be players that want higher level football, but let's wait and see.
