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



26 Dec 2014 23:11:23

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

All I want to see is 11 players giving it there all, if we get beat then so be it but there has to be fight and spirit!
3 wins will see us stay up, the players need to now stand up and be counted.
Moyes is not accountable for this mess, is he the right man I don’t know but pellegrini wasted big money and let some good players go in the process!

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.

I agree 64, I suggest anyone who has the money then stump it up for the club!
Every club is a business and people will try and make money, that’s how the world works I’m afraid.
DGS have made some bad decisions but so has every other owners of clubs.
We are still in a better position than we were 10 years ago when we were not far off going bust so credit them with that.
I would look at the training regime, facilities etc as we seem to get a load more injuries than any other teams, that’s what has done us this year, we were cruising until we lost Antonio and fabianski, rushed back and now they are out again.
Get to the root of the problem before signing more players.

If Chelsea bid is 40 million then we are definitely going to hold out for more, once the player gets it in his head then we should cash in.
Fellaini is not really inspiring but I think he’s a massive improvement on Sanchez as a squad player,
Ogbonna and balbuena have started to look more solid lately and we have Cordosa to fill in if needed, I have heard good reports on him for the u23’s.

For 40 million I would put him straight away, if he cannot get in before balbuena and go on a then that tells you something!
He goes walkabout during games and makes rash challenges!

Aarons will be very getable come the summer unless the season is cancelled and Norwich stay up!

What is the opinion on seasons end?

I personally think it will be cancelled, would like to see the two come up and 5 down next season.
I think this virus is going to be another 5-6 weeks so to play the games you are realistically looking at starting mid June, do not see how this can possibly work as teams get new players in and sorting out players contracts.

I do not think Harvey Barnes will come to West Ham, isn’t he in Leicester starting 11?
If it is the same one then I cannot see why he would leave Leicester to come to West Ham, I have been impressed with Leicester this year and with a couple more players I think they will continue to be successful. Fair play to Brendan Rodgers as he’s done a great job.
We do have a lot of promise in the ranks but I think we need to give them chances earlier as we either lose them or their confidence gets destroyed, self doubt creeps in and they lose focus.
I personally have been saying I would rather see youngsters given a chance than some of our lazy performers! Andersen, yarmalenko are great players but only put a 50-60 minute shift in and look as though they are not trying. It’s a shame as andersen is a class act on his day. COYI.

I agree he can improve but we need it now, in 2-3 years is not good for us, in a top 6 side they can afford to wait and unfortunately we are not, ogbonna has been by far our best defender and they were going to let him go last year and thank god he stayed.
If Soucek stays then I think the back four will have better protection which will help, with fornals and rice that is a good base for midfield, Andersen and Antonio/ snodgrass down flanks and Bowen/ haller up top, stay up and it looks promising for next year and then we can judge how moyes does.

I would let noble go if we survive, his legs are gone and not premier league standard anymore, if we go down then he may do a job in championship.

My list in full:
Noble ( free transfer, let him make a few quid)
Yarmalenko ( £10 million as he’s a lazy player)
Balbuena ( £4 million)
Diop ( if good offer comes in, don’t rate him) ( £45 million)
Lanzini ( think formals is our future) (£20 million)

We need

Soucek to sign on.
A striker
A decent centre back

I like Diop but he goes walkabout far too often and dives in all over the place.
