Just a thought. With issues surrounding our front line, why not approach giuseppe Rossi who’s training with Man Utd for a short time deal ( let’s say 12-18 months) with a relatively low salary and a goal bonus?

1.) 25 Jan 2019 15:49:59
Interesting idea, but I don’t think he’s on MP’s radar.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 18:07:41
Rossi's injury record is horrendous. We don't want another long term injury on the wage budget.



16 Jan 2019 14:32:23
What are the chances of the board signing both Piatek and Werner IF both were interested in joining us? Or will it be just one or the other if we get the opportunity?

1.) 16 Jan 2019 15:07:29
I would say there is a 100% we sign neither. However hard we may try.
I imagine the club know that and will not spend too long, if any time at all, chasing these two players.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 15:22:39
Agree. With MP in charge, i'm hoping we are done with sullivans "wild goose chases"

3.) 16 Jan 2019 15:28:51
I doubt whether Sullivan is making the offers for Piatek and Gomez that have been reported without the nod from MP.

I can’t see us investing heavily in more than one serious striker.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 16:23:05
My biggest worry as I said before is if Arnie doesn't leave in which case this is all in vain.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 16:38:03
Dreamland would be any 2 of Piatek, Werner and Gomez. Realistically, getting ONE would be an achievement given the interest in these players from big clubs.

However, to get two decent strikers in would require Arnie, Chica AND Perez/ Carroll all gone permanently in Jan. Who knows, MP would be a big draw for any player.

MP should put a cheeky bid in for Isco, even on loan to the end of the season LOL.

6.) 16 Jan 2019 17:02:56
Dreamland would be Messi if we are chasing players that we have zero chance of getting.

The only one that is likely is Gomez if we move fast enough. But that’s a stretch.



09 Aug 2018 10:21:44
Heard Crystal Palace still interested in Antonio. If they did approach and were interested would be have time to sign a replacement and who would it be? With the abundance of AM’s that we have signed to date, would it free up money for another attacker if Gonalons joined us?

1.) 09 Aug 2018 11:10:47
The signing of Perez means that we now have healthy competition for places up front. I’d be surprised if Antonio left today, but it depends on MP’s view and whether the books need a bit of balancing.



06 Aug 2018 19:12:55
Ironmike. I have seen one or two articles muting that WH could be considering making a move for €20m rated Israeli striker Moanes Debour. Any mileage in this rumour or is it just mischief making Journalists? I believe he’s from Red Bull Salzburg.

1.) 06 Aug 2018 19:31:01
Palace are believed to be close to this player Unless s9mething unusual comes up I think WH have there striker situation sorted out it’s other positions now required, IRONMIKE.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:14:36
Cheers for feeback Mike. Question is if we have strikers tied up would that mean Perez is out only back up option for Arnie and Chicharito? Man. if so. slim pickings hey?



03 Aug 2018 12:59:02
Sky reporting Everton lining up a £3m bid for Reeves Oxford?! £3m! Are they stuck in the 90’s decade? For £3m I would tell them to shove it! Surely he’s got to be worth £10m and still with a sell on clause! Man. that’s insulting. I would rather send him out on loan again.

1.) 03 Aug 2018 13:08:25

2.) 03 Aug 2018 13:28:02
If you don’t ask, you don’t get and they don’t get.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 13:30:45
Didnt Gladbach offer more, more like should be £1.5 a years loan,

4.) 03 Aug 2018 13:39:11
Sorry that’s a piss take - loan him out again ⚒.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 14:31:10
Wow. no feathering and tarring for me today. And then a good stoning with housebricks? 😂😂😳😳.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 14:42:56
For a club like Everton who have been splashing the cash since the new owners took over this derisory bid shows me that they have only put their fingertips in their pockets and not their hands. To be fair, if I was Reece Oxford who clearly has faith in his own ability, i would feel insulted had a club like Everton with their spending power only valued me at £3m.

7.) 03 Aug 2018 15:26:11
If you you tube BERNARD it says he's joined AC MILAN mike?

8.) 03 Aug 2018 15:26:13
Let's just insult Everton back by say £3m plus Pickford.

9.) 03 Aug 2018 15:31:46
I wouldn’t get too worked up about it. For a start it’s SSN so of questionable accuracy. If it’s an unacceptable offer we won’t sell. Everton, if they have bid, will know we want to sift him and chance their luck with a low offer. What’s the worst that can happen? We say “no”. Or they get a bargain.
Maybe Oxford’s agent is trying to get his name in the press and passing stories to Sky is a good way of doing it. But let’s not get too worked up over it.

10.) 03 Aug 2018 15:53:51
overpay for pickford?

11.) 03 Aug 2018 16:48:59
Bernard has not signed for Milan. He may but hasn’t as yet IRONMIKE.

12.) 03 Aug 2018 19:23:01
whorya66. There's been an Arnautovic welcome to man United compilation too, youtube titles don't mean anything just the posters trying to get more views. usually see a news story make the video to get in first for more views when people search who they have been linked too.

13.) 03 Aug 2018 22:05:56
I personally didn't say he'd signed merely asking mike if he had because of the ac milan thing don't take much notice of other clubs just that one stuck in my head.

14.) 03 Aug 2018 23:32:20
Hi mike wht was the game against ANGERSperformance wuse because on twitter people are raving about THE GENERAL BALBUENA and saying give him the captaincy i hops so as i'd love to see TIM VUCKERYS face as he said he would struggle i know he hasn't yet played in the premier league but so far so good he really looks like my type of player which they are few and far between not giving 100% and only interested in huge wages and what they can earn so its refreshing that a £6.5 million pound player hasn't got a chip on his shoulder a d ain't frightened to get his kit dirty and gets stuck in as long as its directed in the right way he's just the type I've player we've warmed too in the past GEORGE BRUNO PARISS and the terminator dicksy even REPKA to a certain degree, steve (the smallest c/ b ever lived) potts, and moncur well you get my drift oh i forgot one my favourite of all time morley morley yeah good old TREVOR MORLEY ian bishops closest friend 😭😭😭 i said closest not closet lol. COYI.

15.) 04 Aug 2018 12:54:06
You can watch the games on west hams Facebook page was a live stream but you can watch it from the start and see for yourself. I've been watching the games and you can see glimpses of quality made a superb tackle against Mainz in the last minute to stop them scoring. he does look tidy defensively but as Mike mentioned on the banter page the distribution has been a bit iffy but it's not simple passes that have given away possession but he's made some decent forward plays too.

As for diop he's strong in the tackle no messing about I think he will only up his game in the prem and be even stronger in the challenge. I'm looking forward to it let's hope they can hit the ground running I'm feeling confident they will, Its easy to forget diop is only 21 he's a beast. Balbuena at 26 is coming into his peak too. Only time will tell not long now buzzing for it although we could possibly do with abit more pre season. shame we didn't see more of Holland in the last few games of pre season.

Sam Byram leaves for a fee of £750,000?! We paid £4m for him. I question the boards logic at times. I know we have to release players to sign players but this is madness. Norwich are now a premier league side and should be paying premier league prices. I would have said £2m minimum. I know Byram hasn’t shone for us but there is potential there after a good run of games. Watch him be a stand out player for Norwich. It’s no wonder we sometimes make lowball bids to other teams when we allow ourselves to accept offers like this.

1.) 16 Jul 2019 15:31:06
Has hardly played for us. One year left on his contract on £30k a week (£1.5 million) . Injury problems.

Better off the books tbh.



13 Aug 2018 12:51:58
I’m going to single out some criticism here. Playing a team like Liverpool I think we made a grave mistake starting with masuaku. He was found wanting defensively on many occassions. I just don’t feel we got the starting line up right IMO. People have stated already, no DMF with legs. I would have rather seen the following starting line up but of course, I’m no manager.

Fabianski or Adrian

Zabaleta Balbuena Ogbonna Diop Cresswell
Yarmalenko Wilshere. Anderson

1.) 13 Aug 2018 13:20:11
Creswell isn’t match fit and there is a lot of people slating MPs decision. Yes it cost us the match. First two goals were arguably down to masuaku to some degree. The third was a terrible decision, no excuse for that at that level of the game. But say we played Zabaleta there, is that a good shout or does that just destroy Masuakus confidence? Yes he got it wrong but Creswell wasn’t match fit so that’s an invalid argument.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 13:39:31
Id play OGBONNA at left back he's pacey enough left footed strong good in the air and imo suited to that position he's played there for JUVENTUS and i don't rate cresswell defensively he's poor imo and i'd like to touch on one thing why on gods earth did we allow EDMILSON to leave when we are woefully short on midfielders that are capable i remember his performance against CHELSEA when he scored and was one of the best players on the bloody pitch trust me when you are in and out of the team its very difficult to perform knowing your going to be dropped when people return from injury he was never given a run of longer than three games and you can't blame him for wanting to go but the lads got tons of ability and imo better than NOBLE and RICE (who ain't a midfielder ) and should not have been able to leave i could understand if we were loaded in that area but yesterday told us we aint. COYI.



30 Jul 2018 18:56:48
I am surprised to see zip in the way of registered activity after the first 3 weeks of transfer window. I know we have signed some great players but I can’t hel feeling it’s going to be a bit of an anticlimax to the transfer window with less than sod all going on. Lots of hear say but nothing solid. Am I the only ungrateful git on here? 😂😂😂.

1.) 30 Jul 2018 22:53:42
Bloody hell man what do you want exactly You could hardly call us inactive IRONMIKE.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 00:44:57
What Mike said.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 07:15:57
COYI64, I am honestly staggered by your comment as I am sure other posters on the site will be? I thought at first you were joking😂Sorry but I think you have named yourself quite correctly to be honest, at least you’ve saved other posters calling you that😂😂😂, I could understand you maybe commenting on the incoming transfers, but this is unprecedented in the quality we have bought in, 7 potential really good signings! Nearly all done and dusted with maybe a couple of exceptions👍 If we had left it later in the window, you would have been moaning that we could only get the “left overs”. I think all us ⚒ fans should be proud of the way our club has responded in the transfer market so early, especially to the board that have reacted to all the past criticisms from supporters of non player investment👍👍 COYI ⚒⚒ Thank you to everybody at the club for all the work and effort put in, hip hip hooray👍😄👍😄 from a very Happy Hammer⚒⚒⚒.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 10:39:48
COYI not trying to jump on the band wagon but come on mate . after the previous windows which the word ZIP could have be used with meaning, we were out of the blocks and got players in. even if nothing else does happen ( which I doubt) I don't think we can say its all been an anti climax.

If the scenario was different and all the players we have signed were staggered over the window and not clumped together so to speak would you have the same opinion?

5.) 31 Jul 2018 11:10:53
Hi all, thanks for the attack! 😂😂
I think my point was this and was potentially misleading. I am MORE than happy with our current signings and as a WH fan haven’t seen a window quite like it. However, after the flurry of transfer activity and signings in first 3-4 weeks of window that was an exciting time for all of us as this was clearly unprecedented we can all see that another DM is potentially required right? And perhaps one more CB?
This is a common thread amongst many of the posts I have read. My comments on my previous post was “tongue in cheek” but with Mawson on move to Fulham and no DM player currently on our “serious” or “confirmed” radar the last couple of weeks have been a bit dormant (or so it would seem) after the first 3-4 weeks - am I wrong? I think we all are sitting and reading this website and it’s pists at least 3 times a day hoping to read confirmed news on a DM for instance who we are aggressively pursuing in earnest. So far, nothing yet. I am also aware that we need to shift some players first before we can start splashing the cash again, so that’s it back of my mind.
Feel free to all jump on the bandwagon again and slate me lads. But when you or I read posts that have the following emojis in them (😂😂😂😂) like my previous post, generally I don’t get on my high horse and encourage a crucifixion.
Lastly, I like the rest of you value and in the main take what Ironmike says about transfers as as close to the truth as it can possibly be. However, I don’t just jump on bandwagon with him serve as his attack dog just because he either never read my post properly, potentially misinterpreted my post because it was maybe poorly written or because he just doesn’t agree with my post. Check his name, it says Ironmike not Jesus Christ. Climb out of his proberbial and read my posts properly and try to understand yhr context of them or the humour they are intended to convey.
Enough said. I await your barrage of condemnation. 😁😁😁😁.

6.) 31 Jul 2018 11:21:24
It’s all good no problems, and we’re not done yet regards IRONMIKE.

25 Jul 2018 20:39:12
Watching Villa vs West Ham on YouTube. Balbuena looks very comfortable and assured but Anderson has been a bit poor this far and has given the ball away a bit.

1.) 25 Jul 2018 21:17:08
His build up play with Masuaku and Arnie for the second goal was good though - I thought he did ok for a debut half.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 21:22:36
Bloody hell we are actually passing the ball around and although it’s at first strange I like the blue yellow kit. IRONMIKE.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 21:34:01
I have always like the teal and yellow kit Mike. It’s not quite our traditional look but it is kinda eye catching. Not a bad run out for the lads. They look a little fitter.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 21:39:17
Only see second half but thought the passing was pretty good, I think they could see their team mates better with those bright yellow socks on, lol, thought the kit looked good though, and a performance to match.

5.) 25 Jul 2018 22:08:17
How did BALBUENA play mike?

6.) 26 Jul 2018 05:54:00
The problem ANDERSON has got is his price tag and reputation so if he doesn't have a blinder people will say he was useless or not worth the money so he's on a hiding to nothing. COYI.

7.) 26 Jul 2018 09:05:05
I think Anderson will be seen as Payet-like. A mercurial talent who can wow the crowd. It is, however, really important that there is end product.

I am very confident that an Arnie, Anderson, Yarmolenko attack will produce goals.

8.) 26 Jul 2018 10:33:33
Balbuena did good solid looking. Rice is a talent where ever he plays in my judgement he will get his rise once all the other stuff is done MP obviously doesn’t rate Oxford if we get a Half decent bid he’ll be on his way IRONMIKE.



23 Jul 2018 16:37:16
Does anybody have any idea when West Ham vs Bournemouth tickets go on sale to Claret Members? 😁😎.

Stubbo a bit unfair mate. I think DGS have stumped up a fair bit of money on players lately. The fact that we offered instalments is not unheard of. If we only needed to buy a single striker it would have been doable. The fact we need at least two that will cost us a minimum of £80m for top quality strikers and having already spent £24m on Fornals with a back line that also need strengthening limits them. Clubs need billionaires now not multimillionaires.

I fail to see what you’re grumbling about to be fair.
Mid I was DGS I would have sold the club and walked. They get nothing but criticism from the fans. Short memory mate. They covered out debt and kept us afloat when we were close to collapse when the Icelandic’s took over. Be thankful we even have a club mate. We could have ended up like Leeds, Bolton, Portsmouth.

My undertaking is that it’s 25m euros. Which will cover what we paid for him and the sell on fee.
I’ll be glad to see the back of the sulky bitch and his brothers who’s a nobody without Arnie.

I still question West Ham’s common sense having a release fee of £40 that expired on 14 June.

Bye bye Arnie. I wish you the worst of luck and hope you get what you deserve in China. obscurity and money which is all you seem to play football for.

I really have no reservations about letting him go. He’s worse then Payet was.

I see Marega is getting some bad press from some West Ham fans. They are saying he hadn’t proven himself. In my option 22 goals in a season and 6 goals and 2 assists in the Champions league trumps anything we have or have had in last 10 years. I would take him all day long. Power and pace. We also raised our eyebrows when we brought in Demba Ba and he did some great things for us, and in my opinion was VERY similar to Marega.

I was led to believe it was a pay as you play contract. My understanding is that this means if he doesn’t play he gets sod all. From what I picked up bi the media this is to ensure that Andy Carroll stays fit and makes himself available. I think there may be suspicions that when he says he’s injured he may be “over egging” the severity. I just want him gone. End of.

I turned the game off. Wolves were giving us a footballing lesson. Masuaku in two games on the bounce has failed to make a successful tackle or stop a cross going in. Anderson walking around the pitch and absent from the game in the most part, zero penetration, no commitment from any player relating to a forward pass, slow., ponderous and devoid of any ideas. I’m so angry that I’m feeling sick to my stomach. We can’t blame the owners now. it’s lacklustre performances from players . I’ve had it to my eyeballs with this spineless lot. Chops! Apart from Antonio who’s always busting a gut.

Raver, Whether you finish 3rd or mid table makes no difference. The aim of all team in the premiership is to ultimately win it. Have Spurs!? No! . so welcome to mediocrity. We wouldn't get close to the top of the table and almost winning it like Spurs did and end up letting Leicester win it because we CHOKED! 😂😂😂😂.

You’re team bores me mate. So predictable and full of themselves. Just like to the you were 2-0 up against West Ham in the cup. All your players walking off high fiving each other, just to CHOKE again and lose the game 2-3 to the mighty Hammers. 😂😂😂. Have a nice day now. 👍👍👍😁😁😁.
