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

COYI.

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!

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

Firstly!

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.
COYI

Bobbywhufc

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!!
COYI

Bobbywhufc

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.
COYI

Bobbywhufc

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

Are we really that bad, how many teams looked good this weekend?
Everton, Chelsea, Leeds, Arsenal!
Nearly all the teams looked tired and unfit, no excuse for it in my books, but everybody looked unfit.

I think players like Cullen and Snodgrass should get a go against Arsenal, even Anderson looked like he wanted to run a bit against Newcastle, which we did not see last year, if he wasn’t ready last year they should not of played him.

Realistically we are a mid table team, have been for last few years. All fans that think we should be challenging for Europe needs to get tested!
Let’s support the team, protests against the board do not help the players, if the right offer comes in they will sell, will we be better off, who knows!
COYI.

Grady Diangana was a great championship player, last time he played in premier league he hardly set the world alight, he was good.
We need a Tarkowski more than a Diangana at the moment, without Ogbonna we were in a load of trouble last year, shame nobody has been in for Diop!

Let’s get behind and support, we are a bottom half/ mid table team at the moment but if we play like we did after lockdown we have the players to get in top half easily.
Too many on here already relegated without kicking a ball.
COYI.

I have to say I am with dabbed iron, why is everyone so negative!
Ultimately it is a business and it’s tough, maybe all the haters should get together and buy them out, a simple solution.
Did Diangana set the premier league alight last time in the premier league, don’t get me wrong he is good but £18 million is good money.

Let’s just see how the first couple of months go and remember where we were under Egghead and the Icelandic’s, nearly bust!
There may have been unrealistic claims about champions league football but we are stable now, we all want to see West Ham win something but not the end of the world.
COYI.

Agreed Markro,

I would also give haller a chance, if we keep soucek and rice in the midfield then I believe Lanzini will again start to show his true form as he will not have to cover so much ground although noble has slotted in behind Antonio and maybe found his position!

Maybe controversial but I think we need to look at keepers, fabianski has looked dodgy and villas goal went through him, at first I thought it had taken a deflection but it literally went through him, cannot afford to let those in

West Ham either need to adjust to haller or get rid, he will score goals but on his own up front does not suit him.
You need to get ball wide and get deliveries in and he will reward but if we are not going to go that way then may as well sell on and get morales in.
Andersen just does not looked interested at all and we will need to take a massive hit on him to get him of the wage bill.

Yarmalenko is a good player to bring on with 30 mins on clock to see if he can change things up.
I would of liked to have seen silva yesterday for second half to see what he’s about, heard good things on him and deserves a run.

I personally think fabianski should of got to that, he should of come toward the ball and not stood still.

I’d like to see Anderson start next game as he looked full of running, did not see that once from him last year. I know he only got 10 mins or so but he was tracking back which he never used to.

I think most of the players apart from soucek and fredericks should take a look at themselves after yesterday, the main problem is they looked knackered after 50 mins, I would like to see a training session as they should be fitter than that.

Fornals was poor, good to see Anderson running when he got on as we did not see that last year.
I would start him next week and get Fornals on bench.
Bowen was woeful and they all look knackered after 50 mins, what goes on in training I do not know!
Get them a week at a boot camp to give them a shock.
Onwards and upwards

Let’s face it, this is mostly down to Pellegrini. We have spent a lot of money over the last year supporting pellegrini and this is what is holding us back now.
Football is a business, like it or not! There is only a certain amount of risk the owners are going to take.
Personally I am not sure G&S are the right fit for West Ham but they have steadied the finances since Egghead and his Icelandic’s nearly broke us, so let’s give them a bit of credit.

And four, the league starts in just over 3weeks!

Cannot see many teams making multiple transfers this year, players need to bed in quickly and in all fairness we started showing some fight after the virus.
Our biggest transfer is already done, soucek!

If West Ham change set up and go with 2 forwards and one just behind, he will bang in 20 goals.
If we continue with one up front we will get results but not normally pretty to watch.
Haller has a great record and shows signs when he is on the pitch, his instinct for goal is good.
Antonio, Bowen and haller in middle of those would get goals and be exciting to watch.
