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.

Solskjaer basically saying he is going to field weakened teams!
This could have a big effect on our outcome.

Bobbywhufc

1.) 08 May 2021 08:49:37
Shouldn’t make too much different. We have to win all four games, Chelsea lose today and then we are chasing the loser of Chelsea v Leicester.


2.) 08 May 2021 11:42:48
We have to concern ourselves with our results.

That’s the post.


3.) 10 May 2021 06:42:06
We were never catching Chelsea, Leicester need to lose 2 of their last 3 games for us to stand a chance, Man Utd and Chelsea will field weakened teams as they have other concerns, if Leicester were playing a full strength Man Utd, Chelsea and Spurs then I would still fancy us challenging, yes we do have to win our 3 games but that is very possible.

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

Do not really see the point in signing a player who is ineligible to play for 9 months, that is a waste of 9 months pay!

Sam Johnstone all day long for me, proven keeper in premier league.
My priority would be a keeper and a couple of strikers, if we can pick up another cb then that’s a bonus.

Let’s face it, onana cannot possibly get away with appealing the decision saying he thought it was his but it was actually his wife’s medicine, I would laugh that out of the room if I was on that board!

Would they want rice as part of any deal!
That would be my only concern, if we get CL then I think rice will give it another year, if not then let him leave to further his career.
We would get top money for him now and hopefully they will put money back in to transfers.

Bobbywhufc

{Ed002's Note - No. Rice was always a target of Frank Lampard.}

Moyes should be going all out for him, don’t really like him but he is a goal scorer and gets in oppositions faces, he would definitely bring something even short term.
Antonio has been great but if he had put that chance away early second half it’s a different game, Costa would of buried that!

I am not a Armstrong fan, he tried with Newcastle and did nothing! Diangana was decent in championship but has done nothing in premiership and everyone thought we were mad to sell him at £18 mill!
I’d take a chance on dia if available.

Southgate the most negative manager since 1966, he makes allardyces style of football look attacking!
If I was at the fa I would have sacked him after the Scotland game, we were poor all tournament except for shaw, Walker and maguire! Beat a desperately bad Ukraine side and everyone got excited about us, we were never in a million years beating Italy, they bossed us for 120 minutes of that final.
Grealish must be gutted he cannot get in to that team.

Well, at least we got to see 30 mins of the potential that England can play, moving the ball forward, looking confident. What happened in the second half is anyone’s guess, would love to have heard Southgates half time talk, maybe he was worried about going forward!

Next Tuesday will be the start of the games where you have to win ugly, the nitty gritty of not conceding goals and stout defending, a team that’s not scoring but also not conceding, get your cash on 0-0 at full time.
Still not a Southgate fan but maybe the knockout stages will work as fans will accept winning ugly.

Let’s face it, I can only think of 3 players that have come away with any credit in last two games, Pickford, mings and foden ( foden because he was the only one going forward) .

After Scotland game I think Southgate should of been sacked, that was the most boring, negative performance in years and frankly unacceptable, everybody passed it sideways or backwards and mings summed it up in the interview after saying the goal was to get out of the group, that says it all about the mentality of the team.
Fair enough to look at Kane but he has had no service to work from and has been totally isolated, I am with sourness that rice and Phillips are the same player, play one or the other and not both to create 6 defenders.
I think I will be turning off tonight if the first half is similar to the other night.

We could do a lot worse than wood, he has banged in goals in the premiership and that’s a massive plus for me.
You can take a risk on a Toney or a armstrong but they have both been in premiership before and were not upto much.
Benrahma for me is a great proven championship player but the step up to premier league has found him out a bit and he did improve a bit but needs to be more consistent and generally still needs improvement.

Personally I wouldn’t sign anyone from Mickey Mouse Scottish league.
I would be interested to get Rangers and Celtic in to the championship as they would eventually bring a lot of competition to the premier league.
