Most of the posts go to the West Ham Banter page.

Just reading paper talk on sky sports app, it says that David gold has not ruled out selling West Ham, but also says that he and smegal or gollum (which ever one is which) should be thanked/ praised for keeping us in the premier league. REALY.
What about moving somewhere we didn't want to move. thanks.

What about bringing in players YOU want and not the team gaffer. thanks.
What about letting the manager mangage and stay out of it. thanks
What about making sensible offers to players that actually would help the club instead of penny pinching to make the numbers look better for you own pockets.
THANKS

Do me a favour, stay up or go down, sell, let us start again if we have to. If we stay up then amazing and I hope you can sell to get more money for your lavish life. But the fans don't need your stupid statements like this, you add fuel to an ever growing fire. I love my club and want to see them PLAY good football in the best league in the world, if we go down you will take a lot of the blame so either shoulder it, and sort yasels out or go.

This is not fair on the fans of the club. And through stupid comments like this you wonder why we get annoyed and protest and show anger and in turn is helps the media and tabloids hate us that little bit more.
Thanks DGS and lapdog Brady.

Well said Whitby, hit the nail on the head.

For god's sake the time for protests and having a go at the owners is at the end of the season.
This is doing nothing to help the team, do you all honestly think all this doesn't have an effect on the players and management.
I am totally with you all against the owners but would rather focus my attentions on supporting the team at each home game.
There is plenty of time to protest at the end of the last game and the weeks after that.
Divert your anger at VAR which is killing the game little by little each game.
Soon we won't be cheering a goal or the players celebrating until VAR confirms it.
Wouldn't mind too much if they got the decisions right but there are more mistakes made now than before VAR.

Problem with var is that it's still down to interpretation by another ref watching a replay. Last saturday mark clattenburg pointed out that ogbonnas own goal should not have been allowed because fabianski was fouled. A var look said it was a goal? How does that work.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 21:40:26
And speaking of VAR, I just watched Lucas jutkevic score for brum and the commentator commented what a great goal it was however, he clearly fouled a defender before tucking the ball away. The same BRILLIANT individual goal would have been disallowed I premier league because VAR would have found something wrong in the previous 25 mins of football.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 22:43:20
Gerry don’t get me wrong by any means I am not and have no desire to travel 250+ miles to protest, for one I have better things to do and two there isn’t no point anyway it won’t get anyone anywhere, all I am saying is, as a fan, if I have read this article and it has annoyed me then others will who have the protest views, that these comments will anger those fans.

I agree totally about VAR it is a joke but like these owners it is here to stay. Looking to the city game this would be great way to change our path but at the end of the day it is city and we all know what they can do on their day. COYI ⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2020 02:04:36
I'm going to get slated for my next comment and that is if it meant sully and gold sold the club if we went down then I'd take that as long as we got TABOR and the road associates take over then I think he really would throw money into the club which is needed and not trying to make money out of running a premier league team which S&G have IMO I wonder how far Albert trip smith is willing to go in his involvement as I think he owns 10% correct me if I'm wrong please ED. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - You are wrong to think that money can simply be thrown at the the club. It can't which is why the likes of Aston Villa and Everton have impending FFP issues.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2020 14:54:29
It’s interesting how frustrated we all get.

If that goal had been ruled out by VAR and we’d won it 3:2, there would have been talk of green shoots of recovery.

It’s a funny old game! 😉.

08 Feb 2020 20:12:30
Personally, I think G and S have been good for us. What’s has done us is when they make bold statements. They need to reframe from doing this. The person to blame was Pellegrini who spent £200m. I think Moyes will be like Big Sam, a safe pair of hands. This is something we need at the moment. Our squad is incredibly lopsided and needs serious surgery. Buying players like Whilshire and Roberto were ridiculous. We appear to be buying anyone without looking at what we need. Hopefully, the 2 new signings will make a difference. 🤞🙏🏻.

09 Feb 2020 08:24:27
Markwhu, well said and we appear to be in the minority in this way of thinking! Sullivan especially just seem to say the incorrect things, making a prediction of hope for the future isn’t “lying”, possibly fanciful and wishful thinking at best! It is a multi, multi million £ business and investment after all, they have done nothing unlawful? The incoming transfers have been a “car crash”, as Mark says, no thought, just money thrown at supposedly big name players abroad to impress supporters, this is what G and S and all the fans have got for what a lots of fans wanted the board to do, let a manager manage, thanks MP👎👎 Now lots of them still complaining, some should remember what they wished for?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2020 18:29:54
Every team makes bad signings!
We just seem to be capable of making more, there needs to be an overhaul of the recruitment policy!
Whatever happens there needs to be a massive clear out this summer, I just hope that we finally start to use academy players as we keep hearing about them! G and S have stabilised us considering we were nearly gone 10 years ago, if Michael tabor was serious he would of bought us then. Everyone stop moaning about the owners and throw support behind the team. Today was our best result and maybe will help us avoid relegation! COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2020 11:35:46
Be careful what we wish for, all owners ultimately run a club to make money out of it, so its wrong to slate our owners for taking a pay because any other owner we could get would be no better. I personally think G&S have taken less out of the club financially than they could have taken, when you compare to others.
Bad player investments can happen to ANY club, look at Man Utd under Woodward, even Liverpool before Klopp. Also, we have the biggest assets we have ever had right NOW in Rice, Anderson, and Diop, that's positive.
MP was a result of FAN PRESSURE, demanding a high profile manager with control over transfers, and a big budget, and look where that got us.
My point is, just like in our own lives at home, BAD and RASH decisions are made during arguments, and right now all we are doing is pushing them into these decisions as they try to calm the unrest since the move. I agree Sullivan needs to be away from transfers, and i see ZERO benefit in Brady being at the club. But them two at the club doing their thing is FAR less damaging than fan unrest impacting the players on the pitch and making us an EASY target for media during a relegation battle. One thing is for sure, us FANS are the 12th man, and therefore we would be equally responsible for a relegation if we do not support our players first the best we can.
If we are truly the best fans in the game then we would be supporting our players first and foremost. Separate the unrest from the players on the pitch, support Moyes to do his job, sing Anderson's, Haller's, Fornals' Fabianski's name and make them feel wanted and supported. Boo the board if you want, but 10 mins AFTER the match when the players are down the tunnel. Keep it separate.

If your sensible with putting money in the club as Everton and villa should know the rules ED the throw the money wasn't meant that way ed I should have worded it properly I meant by throwing his money as if a player becomes available there wouldn't be this penny pinching and trying to call the shots as a player belongs to a club they call the shots not sully and pay what the club wants if it's sensible and the players valuation is what west ham think is fair what percentage has trip smith got in West ham please Ed. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - Smith owns 10% of the club under an American legal entity. He is not going to be throwing money at West Ham. The club need to work within their means and not breach FFP.}

16 Feb 2020 04:41:04
Cheers Ed think it's a bit harsh on CITY what's your views as I don't really understand it all the fair cap cheers once again Ed. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has been found guilty of over-stating their sponsorship with the owners making up the difference so it looks like they are within FFP. As an example, if their income was £400M with £150M of sponsorship included, and outgoings were £400M - then everything is fine. If however, the sponsorship was only £75M and the owner was boosting it by £75M a year to look like £150M - then that is far from acceptable and then FFP is breached. The issue is complicated by much of the evidence having been illegally obtained (stolen) by a hacker and then passed to a German newspaper. Manchester City will appeal the UEFA punishment - in the meantime the Premier League will have to ponder what to do. So expect this to run for a while.}

C&H reporting Kevin Nolan to join coaching team - sounds good to me.

I’m all for it. He won’t stand for anything other than 100% from every player he coaches.

Wouldn't surprise me if they appoint Nolan as manager if we do go down.

Rumours that Man U and Arsenal are “monitoring” Hacksawbandage.

Perhaps we ought to bring him back permanently in the summer.

04 Feb 2020 21:43:48
Who?
Just watching a bit of Oxford v Newcastle, first time I’ve seen Nathan Holland play, tell you what this kid has got some potential, got no fear and is a very good player. Wonder when we let him go too.

Talented kid by all accounts. Oh, hang on a minute we let him go didn't we.

I think he’s still ours, MAC. He’s out on loan, isn’t he?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2020 07:43:32
Then he will be on first team. next year when we are relegated.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 23:35:41
Apparently the stumbling block was the 50% drop in wages should we be relegated from 80k down to 40k a week so not really West ham's fault how can you expect to pay a player 80k in the championship it all worked out in the end just hope he's not another huggill!

Nah this guy is a player.

Jason’s, hope so, plus he plays as he does on £6k a week, as a lot in the Championship do, what a disgrace it makes a lot of ours look like, let’s hope now he’s a⚒ He doesn’t fall into the same bad habits⚒⚒⚒.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 09:17:30
i do think now we have a chance to stay in the Premiership. We now have someone with pace, skill, and an eye for goal.
Welcome to our family Jarrod.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 10:08:04
Actually he has skill but pace is not something he possesses.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 10:29:04
No idea how deals are thrashed out but he has apparently a staggering 5 and half year deal😮 No wonder we got him, who conducts these contracts, have we not learned our lesson from all the sick notes that have drained the transfer resources previously and ongoing, no need to name them we all know who they are! Why not 3 years or so, so they never learn from previous mistakes, obviously not? He is a proven scorer at the moment albeit in the Championship and I am really grateful to have anybody that helps us out but phew hope he’s not another Haller or a few others as we’ve got him for a long while? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 14:22:27
Soucek and Antonio starting👍Hope Ant don’t try to hard and aggravate his problem, didn’t think Soucek would start? Hope Antonio helps to put a squib up Haller’s ——-🤣Really imperative not to lose, 3 points would be massive⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 16:50:16
After this we are going down.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 17:23:28
WTF was Moyes doing subbing Ant unless he was injured or flagging, amateurish, you don’t change a winning system, do they think it looks good being technical. I still think a few seasons ago at Spurs we were 0-2 up, then Bilic made a sub for no reason, think a Spurs corner was about to be taken as he subbed, bang in it went, then Kane scored the 3-2 winner with a few minutes left, that destroyed my faith in Bilic, amateurish trying to look technically smart but end up looking a p—-. Thought Moyes was unprofessional and did the same today, 2 points thrown away👎👎.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Feb 2020 19:55:48
Let's remain positive. Weve started scoring goals and could have had more than two first half. Weve got bowen coming in who us match fit. Soucek looked good today. Defence can't play worse and 3 of our last 4 fixtures are against norwich, watford and villa where I have confidence we will win them fixtures and these 3 still have liverpool and city.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Feb 2020 11:42:26
So gold has liked on twitter west ham fans being called morons.? We trusted you and sully and look where we are now!? You promised champions league its now gona be championship.

02 Feb 2020 19:28:08
It’s about time some realised life isn’t about promises, they are sometimes impossible to keep, that’s what children believe in not adults, it’s easy to sell any product to a naive punter when he knows he is going to line his pocket!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2020 20:41:02
On the jarrow bowen thing regarding he isn't a pacey winger but just behind the striker for me is his position he isn't slow but what he's got is 3 major things he's strong on both feet he reads the game very well and has very quick feet so let's hope he can make the transition as it's a big step up and many fail but I think he's got that ability I didn't think ANTONIO would make it but he did let's hope he can stay fitter than him but I don't think ANTONIO is fully focused on football more fast cars let's hope BOWEN applys himself fully as players get distracted by their wages and thinking they can walk on water when they get their feet under the table. COYI.

BOWEN IS A HAMMER ⚽🏐😄 GET IN! didn't think we would get this done it smelt of previous transfer business deals so I ain't apologising as they've showed they've got minerals😂. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 15:26:47
Deal for bowen gas hit a hitch as we are squabbling over his £60k a week wages when we pay Wilshire £100k a week and Reid £60k a week. Wtf is wrong with us.

Bournemouth very keen on bowen also so watch this space. don't be surprised if he goes there.

31 Jan 2020 16:54:33
Is it not over the wages I hear but the relegation clause which halves his wages.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 17:15:50
Bowens current baic salary is £312k per annum that's just over £6k per week. No doubt he gets win and goal bonuses but £60k per week is 10 times what he is getting at the moment.

Former west ham defender Reece Burke now at Hull is on the same salary.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 21:11:27
From what I've seen of bowen he's better than we have and sully won't pay 60k .? It beggars belief.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 22:49:09
Arguing over £10,000 or £20,000 when the likelihood of us going down would cost us about £100 million great business yoda if you don't get this done I believe it is another PR stunt for YODA to say we tried but he wanted ridiculous money, no he probably wanted premiership wages and the 2 Ronnies and the plastic posh tart are trying to palm him off with championship wages that's more like the truth as SULLY never tells lies😂. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 07:03:22
Of course it could only be our owners that have sent a legal letter to sky asking for apology! Typical, they love being in the news. Hope am wrong but I can't see much being done today and even if we find targets teams need to have replacements in mind and have time to get one in. don't go to bed pmsl.

Reading that news article this morning made me chuckle. They really are the chuckle brothers.

I have also read that Marko Arnautovic was pushing for a return, but the Coronavirus and the grounding of all flights from China put a stop to it. Honestly, I wouldn't have been disappointed if he'd come back, but I don't think this was ever actually on the cards. I think all ex-premier league players playing in China have been linked with a return to Europe.

Jarrod Bowen is a good signing if it comes off. I'd be pleased with that.

I still think we are lacking in central midfield still if we get an injury or suspension. £8 million for Victor Wanyama is a bargain, something we should be all over. Spurs want him off the books and I am sure we could probably get him to come over.

We are also lacking in both fullback positions. Cedric Soares would have been a great signing at right back, available for £5 million, but now looks on his way to Arsenal.

Danny Rose would have been a decent signing for left back on loan although Tottenham probably wouldn't have loaned him to us.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 14:52:58
Looks like the AMIENS striker GURASSI is joining BHA so we will see when he probably bangs in goal after goal😂. COYI.

Sander Berge has signed for Sheffield.

Eds any news on full backs?

Any truth that we are trying to hijack crystal palaces deal for Jarrod bowen?

We seemed to have sprung to life if reports are to be believed however i fear to little to late. Wasted to much time on gedson.

{Ed002's Note - I agree it is late - no preferred targets will be picked up but there is interest in Bowen. Not a great approach as you can imagine.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Cheers Ed.

30 Jan 2020 17:33:42
I've seen that Crystal Palace are interested in Jarrod Bowen, and I thought why are West Ham not all over this, but I've just read that Newcastle and West Ham are also interested with West Ham being in the best position as they have offered a straight cash bid, find it hard to believe, so I don't know if anyone or the Ed's have any info on this?

{Ed002's Note - It is tough to step in late in the day and not the way to do business, but it seems right now that the eggs are going in the Jarrod Bowen basket - that may change tomorrow.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Jan 2020 21:37:34
According to insider thiers no more signings to come.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 08:17:04
Just read online in “London News” we have offered a last minute bid for Jarrod Bowen for £22m and he prefers WH to Palace who have not bid anyway? Don’t know if it’s made up journalism or true.

I have no idea of Bowen but he does play in the Championship and we are desperate, their is to much at stake not to try as long as he’s not a Wilshere with bad injury history which is unlikely I hope? At the moment I would rather see Hugill than that Haller up front, he can’t be worse for half the price? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 19:53:02

Problems with his £60k wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 17:28:36
if u read all the reports we are interested in signing anyone who can kick aball
Please tell us Ed who are we interested in.

{Ed002's Note - Late in the day and not the way to do business, but the eggs are going in the Jarrod Bowen basket. If Palace or spurs pick up Eberechi Eze it might be a slip by West Ham. An offer on the table for Olivier Giroud might have been a good idea a couple of weeks ago.}
