Rumour has it we have placed a bid for an African striker? I know a certain Colombian striker who plys his trade in Scotland I'd like to see pull on the claret and blue shirt! Not very disciplined but I'm sure pellegrini can calm him down! How many goals would he have scored with out those bans, I know it's scottish football but you still got to score



1.) 18 Jul 2019 10:03:06
Morelos for being quite small and quick definitely makes his presence known I think he would be a big hit with the fans. I watched his highlights 3 minute video for all 30 goals and then a 17 minute video for all his cards to be fair a lot of his cards and sending offs were soft and poor decisions a lot of the decisions would rule in his favour with VAR. Just seems there was abit of an agenda with him. I'd definitely take a chance on him his fight and graft would endear him to the fans and can clearly finish He would be good cover and or a partner for haller that could be a fierce combination.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 11:41:21
Bob/ Iron, strongly agree with both, I love a terrier on the field, especially when they can score as well, as you say what a combination if he could be calmed down somewhat, I would have him as another addition double quick👍Get him if possible⚒⚒⚒COYI.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 13:36:26
Apparently Ex has said something about him being available for £4m or £5m. I’m not sure I understand why when Gerrard valued him at £20m.

There are also reports that he is an ar*ehole in the dressing room.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 14:06:27
I quite like Morellos. Was shocked Ex said he could be got for 4/ 5m.
The African striker I believe is Ben Yedder, could be Marega too I suppose but know we were interested a couple of years ago.

5.) 18 Jul 2019 16:55:56
I think you’re right about Ben Yedder. Good player, not yet over the hill, but he would still cost a few bob.

6.) 19 Jul 2019 06:39:07
we have done gt business so far i'm sure Pel. has his eye on other players he wants tu bring in.
As it says on a dollar bill, IN GOD WE TRUST
On our shirts it should read. IN PEL WE TRUST.

7.) 19 Jul 2019 08:42:21
If it is Morellos we may be linked with, Rangers will now up their fee after the hat trick on Thursday even though it was against a Pub team! ⚒⚒⚒.

8.) 19 Jul 2019 09:57:07
We have no cash left to spend according to C&H. I can see a couple of loans coming in, or maybe the odd free.

9.) 19 Jul 2019 10:54:22
African player you mention may be Youssef en-nesyri. Think exwhu employee mentioned him or seen a news article. 4-5m seems low maybe as upfront payment then lots of add ons. If we make up the majority of the valuation with performance based add ons that would suit us nicely the better he performs the more rangers get and less risk for us.

I don't believe the c&h article about us having nothing left. If the right deals become available we will find the money.

We might still get a decent amount for obiang but based on what I've seen I'd feel more confident of him coming on rather than Sanchez he never seems to no what's behind him. That cost us points last season when he did play and seeing the same in preseason now doesn't fill me with confidence.

Business not done yet the fact we are being linked to players early to mid twenties is refreshing bodes well for the future makes a lot more sense than how we have conducted business in the past.

10.) 19 Jul 2019 15:24:51
IronAl, just saw your comment and looked him up - you may be on to something! Not so sure he is worth it though? He does fit the bill though, player Husillos knows and scored 1/ 3 in a decent European league.
Morellos- he is rated quite low because (sorry to say it) the Scottish League is not highly rated. Despite scoring 30+ goals last season, he is still only valued at £2.7m on transfermarkt. That being said, like him as a player, is young and could do a job for us. I reckon 5-10m would get him.
I too don't believe the 'no money left nonsense' we had the same last year after Diop/ Anderson and then bought Balbuena, Fabianski, Yarmolenko and Sanchez (maybe forget the last one! ) I believe in total we signed just shy of 30m worth of new players after we *had no money* Will be the same this year - sign two strikers for about 20m total.

11.) 19 Jul 2019 18:52:07
Agree Glen re the no money left, standard business talk, very sensible, you don’t want to flaunt “money’s no object”👍 if we assumed we maybe have £15m plus a little more in reserve, we can surely get at least one maybe two in that are half decent as backups? I could think of several but of course it’s who wants to come, it’s who is available, very difficult I know, but if we get nobody else, we should still be able to compete with what we have, it won’t be a catastrophe? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

12.) 20 Jul 2019 08:43:16
Yes, agree 100%
Reckon one signing and one free/ loan striker if we shift Chicharito.
Dont really see what else we need? Good squad, depth in every position if we get a couple of strikers in.

13.) 25 Jul 2019 09:50:27
Morellos would be a great signing . He is aggressive scores plenty of goals and will be relatively cheap because playing in Scottish Pub League. I agree his disciplinary record isn’t great but I also think he is a marked man up there. We did well when signing a nutter from North of the Border ( via Sheffield Wed ) , and whilst he hasn’t PdiCs skills he finds the back of the net more often .
We can’t lose much if we need to move him on, and his wages aren’t likely to break the bank . But I think he will do ok, he can’t be any worse than the dross we have seen masquerading as strikers of late . We paid £10M for the one we bought from Preston who has managed 3 appearances and no goals which would make a fee of £20M if we had to pay it seem a steal by comparison . We certainly won’t need to pay him the money we paid Carroll to be constantly injured or I would guess the blank firing Zaza who Inter tried to sell us .
He must be a better option than Llorente who only got games for Tott because he was bad enough to be content bench warming when Kane was able to play.

This is probably the worst performance I have seen as a fan! No heart, no skill.
Why can we not bring on youngsters who have got something to prove! Reece Burke, Elliot Lee, let's start playing them as the 11 that are on the field obviously cannot wait for the Holidays, as it's such a hard life being a Pro footballer! July 2nd our new season begins( which could ultimately see us relegated). Let's look forward to that!


1.) 20 Apr 2015 12:31:14
Seems a recent poll suggests tht 87% of west ham fans want a change of manager and of those who voted this is how the vote went

1/Rafa Benitez 24.23 per cent

2/ Slaven Bilic 21.1 per cent

3/Marcelo Bielsa 19.68 per cent

4/ Sam Allardyce 13.35 per cent

5/David Moyes 9.74 per cent

6/ Eddie Howe 7.83 per cent

7/ Roberto Di Matteo 4.06 per cent

It seems therefore that Rafa is the favourite of the fans but is he a realistic target

Pretty disappointing display today against Chelski, I don't like the fact that we field a "weakened" side because they are Chelsea. You do not drop Song and Sakho and expect to get a result.
Let's hope this is a one off as I would prefer us to lose 5-0 and at least have a go.
Secondly, let's thank god we had Adrian in goal today otherwise we would have lost 5 or 6-0, at least one hammer an walk of proud of their performance.
Now let's go at Arsenal and go for the win, we can stay in fourth spots lot longer by attacking.


1.) I think bfs let the fixtures list dictate the team selection more than likely thought we are more than likely to get something from the arsenal game.
i would have preferred bfs to have played song alongside koyate downing at the top of the diamond a lot of prematch predictions were if west ham want to get something from this game we need to get the ball out wide which we did in the last 20 min hope we perform better today against the gooners

2.) Shocking displays will continue as long as we play Carroll

Drop hm and Nolan and don't renew the Allardyce contract



09 Nov 2014 20:36:14
If anybody looks at the citeh page, apparently they are in talks with us to sign Sahko!!
Obviously I am a massive Sahko fan and would love to see him stay for a long!! BUT!! If we can do a deal where he goes at the end of the season then I would seriously consider this, either way we are in a win win situation.
If he stays then we have bought a bargain for 4.7 million, if he goes and this mugs up north want to give us 25million then that has to be considered!!


1.) He is worth more than 25m over the years of his contract, its roughly another million quid for each place finished in the league table alone! His goals are why we are 4th at the moment so for me, don't sell (that's if this rumour is true, can't see why Aguero / Dzeko aren't sufficient)



13 Oct 2014 12:52:44
What's the news on Andy Carroll?? Personally I would like to see him and stay and play alongside Valencia and sahko, there's loads of goals to be had there with the variety of striker available. Remember that Carroll is unplayable when on his game, he just needs a bit of luck keeping injury free.

Let's go with Adrian, jenkinson, Tomkins, Reid, cresswell, song, kouyate, downing, carroll, Valencia, sakho.
Subs: Nolan, noble, demel, Collins, jussi.


1.) Sounds good to me

2.) 14 Oct 2014 09:28:55
I heard whispers that the injury is actually a part cover up and that he has actually gone to rehab for a drug addiction. We all know he loves a party

I'm not saying this is true, just whispers that are being heard

3.) R91 this was almost certainly the case last season as I heard the same news from a couple of very close sources



31 Jul 2014 21:57:50
Jenkinson all done! Let's get another striker and I would take that for this window

I would love to be able to say to keep Wilshere and if his contract was scrapped and he signed a pay as you play contract then I’d be all over that, we cannot afford the luxury of having someone for 10 games a season and we would be lucky to get that out of him, we know if season restarts he will last 3 games.
Maybe his problems are mental as any little knock he’s out for periods of time, fantastic talent but no good on treatment table.
Formals, soucek, rice, snodgrass or Andersen is a good midfield, let soucek and rice support the back which leaves the others to do their bit without the worry of defending.
Moyes does not come across as exciting but I think he will build foundations for the future given a fair crack of the whip.

I still only believe if the season cannot be finished then it should be points per game scenario for games played, this would mean the villa should be allowed to play their game in hand, this is very doable and would make sense in these times.

To predict remaining games and award points is totally unfair to all the teams and playing at neutral venues is also unfair to all the bottom teams and cannot see anyone agreeing to this.

I cannot see the amounts of money being handed about actually happening, if Chelsea did want to pay 70 million then I cannot see us turning it away, it will be a lot of money in football once this has all passed over.

I believe Rice will still be a West Ham player this time next year, unfortunately we are West Ham and that is what we need to do unless we get silly rich owners, I personally don’t hold a grudge if they give their all and then move on, as long as it’s not a Defoe/ Payet situation!

Totally agree, team of 11 grafters would always finish higher than the luxury players.

We all know that West Ham fans love a player who works and tries his socks off (Di Canio, tevez, Noble, ) just to mention a few.

I think majority of fans can handle a relegation if the players have tried, when we see the effort non existent then that’s when fans turn against players.

70 million is nothing, hardly any transfers are paid upfront but paid over time!
Relating to Andersen going to Napoli then I would not mind the transfer as long as we get a decent price and it’s used wisely, great player on his day but to far and between, does not look interested in putting a shift in.

I think he was offered that with appearance fees as well which did not look to bad on paper, let's not forget everything is going to drop for the next 2/3 years, looks to me like he is being very greedy, other players earn good money but times are a changing!

He would of been better off asking for a short term contract on these terms and seeing how the ground lies in a years time, looked like he would still be earning £15-£20k a week, which considering he has just broken into the first team is not bad.

Just announce Liverpool as champions and bring up the top two teams from the leagues, have a 4-5 team relegation next year. Or alternatively use the points per game system over the games played, these games have been played and is the fairest way, if that means Aston Villa need to play their game in hand then so be it, easier to manage one game behind closed doors than 92 games taking up valuable frontline staff!

If it’s about the money then says it all, it should be about health.
Even playing games behind closed doors the fans will still turn up outside the stadium which is exactly what we do not need.

Let’s face it!
There’s very few straight football club owners, why isn’t abramovich in the country? Did he not buy his company for $1 and it’s suddenly worth 6billion the next day, sounds cocher to me!


{Ed002's Note - Nonsense. Perhaps you could try and understand matters before suggesting that there "are very few straight football club owners". Mr Abramovich was one of a number of Russian citizens whose work permits were withdrawn by te Conservative leader for no coherant reasons. He is no longer a Russian citizen and chooses to limit his visits now - although he has personally decided to make very significant donations to the NHS by offering two fully serviced hotels to be used by staff from nearby hospitals, meals, PPE and financial support. I have no idea what the dildo brothers have done - perhaps ignorant fickwits like you would do better not saying anything when they clearly have no knowledge at all.}

He is on his day unbelievable but we all know it would only be good for a year or so till he gets itchy feet again and gets £££ in his eyes, as I have said I’d prefer money spent on good hard workers!

A player who left on bad terms should never return, we would all love to see payet again but the way he left means he cannot return!
