Hi lads. I have had to have a chuckle. About 2 weeks ago when I read a rumour about Divock Origi being an option at West Ham, I saw a voting pole and 90% of voters voted against it. The same vote was out today and I see 85% of fans are all for it now.
How fickle are we as fans? 😂😂😂.
Jonathan Bamba and Kral would be good additions but agree, an out and out striker would be ideal. My view is that Moyes has seen something in either Vlasic or Bamba where he thinks he can convert them into a striker like he did with Antonio and Arnautovic . My view would be its Bamba he wants to convert as he is powerful and fast like Antonio and Arnautovic.
Moyes knows what he’s doing let’s be fair.
Keep the faith lads.

COYI, yeah agree totally👍I have always had faith in DM and his staff, shrewd unassuming man that doesn’t get carried away with doing well, as he knows how quickly it can change!
If he gets another couple in that’s been rumoured, then I hope a certain poster on here feels embarrassed about their previous posts concerning lack of signings etc etc slagging DM and our club off in general! 😂🤣⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Hi Chelmsford1944.

I wouldn’t be too harsh on the doubters. We’ve all been through the ups and downs of transfer markets. The biggest issue is these self proclaimed journalists who write any old crap they want, linking us to players we aren’t even looking at and generally just mischief making.
Make no mistake, GSB have a lot to answer for but we are all in their debt for bringing out club back from the brink of collapse after the Icelandic’s got us into massive debt.
They are multimillionaires but when I see fans asking why clubs like Everton can do threat business so quickly and we can’t, clearly they don’t conceive the fact that the Everton owners are billionaires and our owners aren’t.
I think Gold and Sullivan are a pair of sods really, but they have spent money over the years. 👍👍.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 18:49:18
Well its a rumour site so people will have options on transfers, mostly its a good group here who just want us to do well, sometimes people can see what we need and frustration boils over its life.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 19:58:06
Areola, Zouma, Vlasic and now, Kral (soon) .

I think this has been an excellent window.

Moyse much prefers to do it slowly, but surely.

5.) 31 Aug 2021 21:13:02
Been a good window and it may not be finished yet.

6.) 31 Aug 2021 21:38:24
Kral done.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 22:55:43
Just been reading that we may have dodged a bullet with Jonathan Bamba. His form has dropped off a great deal of late and I think I read “he’s playing like a player who wants to leave”
This would potentially be a reason Moyes never moved in earnest for him. Do we need half hearted players who blow hot and cold? We need consistency and more importantly, we need a team of players who graft hard and gel well with the rest of the squad.

I think that even though ideally we needed an out and out striker, we have enough firepower in midfield to play a makeshift striker in Antonio’s absence and still get enough goals to hang in there with top 6.

Well. :: I can be an optimist right? 😁😁😁👍👍👍.

8.) 01 Sep 2021 01:07:55
Fair play to DM and the board left it late but on paper that looks like some really good business!



20 Jan 2021 14:50:55
£35m for Youssef En-Nesyri!?
Shove him Seville is what I say. Let them keep him and sell him for £10m in 12 months. A swallow doesn’t make a summer as they say.
One decent start to a season after two average at best seasons doesn’t justify their ridiculous valuation. Jog on West Ham and buy Adam Hlozek for a fraction of that and wait for his injury to subside, play him in March and give Antonio a rest then. Relegation isn’t beckoning so no reason to panic buy in my view.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 15:26:41
Yep. Move on from En Nesyri and look elsewhere.

I would worry, though, if we don’t buy another striker this window.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 16:11:54
This is the best start we have had for a long time, if we don't sign a striker this will show a complete lack of ambition from the board in my opinion.

3.) 20 Jan 2021 17:21:34
REDROBBO, Short memory, It was only in March 2018 They showed ambition and backed Pellegrini and what good did that do, wasted £80m plus on damp squibs, so don’t agree there Rob I’m afraid!
I can remember posters on here ecstatic at the signings at the time!

4.) 20 Jan 2021 19:01:56
Spot on Chelmsford. REDROBBO you also need to understand that PERHAPS the club sold Haller because they needed money. If they don’t buy a striker this window because they won’t be held to ransom and being asked to stump pay stupid money like En-Nasyri’s club is asking for doesn’t show lack of ambition but business sense.
At the moment we have a financially sound club with every chance of surviving these turbulent time. Start spending stupid money without considering the long term impact on the club financially due to the C.V. 19 impact would be nothing short of culpable and financially irresponsible.
At this stage I’d say “sod showing ambition” to be honest.
I want to have a club to support and take my son to over the next decade or so before I leave this mortal coil. 😂😂😂👍👍👍.

5.) 20 Jan 2021 19:23:27
Who said anything about stupid money and no Chelmsford I don't have a short memory I believed at the time pellegrini was finished before he even spent anything, moyes is clearly trying to build something so let him build it, we can get a back up for antonio at a reasonable price, we have sold a lot of the squad in the summer and even in this window have shifted 2 players, this season is a real chance to have a go and finish relatively high up league even European football next year which all adds to revenue, if antonio gets injured now and we don't get anyone in our season is over basically.

6.) 20 Jan 2021 20:54:17
I would like us to sign someone and perhaps take the opportunity that is opening itself up to finish high in the league. However I think on the transfer front Moyes is winning my confidence at least. I don't think he is going to spend silly money on a player and will only bring someone in if it adds to the squad and is at the right price (something to be said for Scotsmen after all :D ) . Given our position and what is being done I will give him the benefit of the doubt and if it gets to the last day and we don't have one I won't be upset, it means the right one wasn't available at the right price.

7.) 21 Jan 2021 08:11:28
ROBBO, You said “lack of ambition” so what’s your idea of ambition” They showed that they have ambition giving MP a free spend, which ended up draining us financially without any progress! DM is doing a great job whether we make more signings or not! We need quality for the PL, not quantity, those that have gone apart from Snoddy were not good enough anyway for WH, it was just age with Snod?
Yes of course we could do with another Antonio up front, but who is he? If we make a signing especially up front I will be delighted like all of us, but hopefully they won’t spend for the sake of it! We all know Football is a business not just a game we all love!

8.) 21 Jan 2021 08:34:48
I agree with all the above that we should show ambition an opportunity is there we've had a great first half to the season let's not let it fade and die.

At the same time we need to make sure we are not panick buying and over spending, in my opinion youssef seems well over priced and does he even want to come?

Dia physically looks very good and works very hard also he's joint to scorer in ligue 1.

Adam Armstrong you know would come in and give it his all and he's very talented.

Hlozek looks great too very young but I doubt he would be for sale this window and might be some of the bigger clubs looking at him in the summer i'd take all 3 of these above youssef they could all be available for less with sevilla wanting 30-40m. I don't think we have that to spend but if we did it should be spread across a striker and a midfielder to cover rice nd soucek.

Oyarzabal also looks quality I believe Moyes gave him his debut at real sociedad!

9.) 21 Jan 2021 09:57:06
Chelms my idea of a lack of ambition is not kicking on from what has been outlined best start in years by heading into the 2 nd half of the season with a threadbare squad not capable of handling the rigours of the Premier league we all know Antonio's injury record isn't great, while I don't think we can replace him I do think we can get cover so we can use him more sparingly in certain games, we have a real chance of finishing top 6 this year, Moyes has come up trumps with the signings he has made so far souchek, bowen, coufal, Dawson so trust the manager.

10.) 21 Jan 2021 17:33:24
Robb, I have complete trust in Moyes, but he can’t magic a player that nobody wants to get rid of. I mentioned in an earlier post if we can’t get anybody in, to use Ant more sparingly, but if you’re fit with no twinges or injury, can’t see Ant wanting to hang around and not play!
So DM and his team need to find a solution to that conundrum, we still have enough time to sign somebody, they would have been planning this for long enough!

11.) 21 Jan 2021 17:45:28
Crazy bid for that guy. If we truly had that cash you'd get both Dia and Daka for that money. Brutal front line pace then. Sick of these airy fairy bids for ransomers. Stump up (reasonable) money for relatively experience youthful fast frontmen. Job done. Need to sting Liverpool back pairing at the end of the month with Rashford-esque type runs.

12.) 21 Jan 2021 20:57:20
REDROBBO. :: I get what you’re saying mate.
It would be a crying shame to not kick on from where we are and try to get a striker in to help us retain our good form.
My point to you was, January is a pretty bad time to bring in a striker of any quality.
We’re being held to ransom by clubs because they understand our dire need for a striker. Clubs like Seville have also struggled financially with C.V. and in my opinion are trying to take liberties with us trying to double a players value to get more money. Teams like this we should give a wide berth and move on to another player.
You also said that your not talking about buying a player for stupid money but unfortunately January is silly money time because it’s halfway through a season and if clubs are going to lose players and not be able to replace them on time, the sought after players will carry a premium price tag.
In my view, and my preference would be, if we cannot find a long term solution to our striker shortage because either they aren’t good enough or are too expensive because it’s mid season, I’d make do with what we have (perhaps finish outside of the top 10 and buy in the next transfer window. If the club decided to do this, it wouldn’t suggest they lack ambition but are focussing on long term success and not just about finishing this season in 6th or 7th place. In my humble opinion, 6th or 7th is the best we can hope for even with a new striker.

13.) 21 Jan 2021 21:19:57
COYi, good sensible post, agree mate👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

14.) 22 Jan 2021 11:04:48
On BBC text this morning, bid by us for the Moroccan of £27m rejected👍 I am well pleased as I’d rather have nobody than possibly somebody that’s been touted about by agents showing clips of him! I wonder if anybody has actually scouted him especially since the C.V., I doubt it?

I would be really pissed off to get another overseas player coming in on more money than some of our regular squad on 3/ 4 year contracts, what an invite to take advantage that is?
Was looking at the payroll today for WH, Yarmelenko is on £115k a week, outrageous, another MP example of lining pockets! Rice is almost at the bottom, although I think that’s been adjusted now? We need a wage structure like some other clubs, rewards on performances and loyalty! ⚒⚒⚒.



18 Jan 2021 19:53:18
Hi all. Just heard on SP that we have put in a bid for Youssef En-Nesyri from Seville.
I never knew much about him but checked his stats and he ain’t all that from what I can see. On some sites it also says he’s worth £13.5m and we offered £22m and it was rebuffed. I hope we tell them to jam it and move on to another player. 😳😳😡😡.


{Ed002's Note - Youssef En-Nesyri (S) West Ham apparently, via a third party, have made an approach to ask about availability and price for the player who has done well this season, but has mot set the world aloight previously. Will be off the AFCON when it comes around. Makes little sense.

1.) 19 Jan 2021 08:37:12
COYI, Make you right. IMO most of the Footballing World knows we are suckers for throwing our money about, Agents will tout anyone when they know we are anxious for another front man! If we can get another up front similar that can hit the ground running like other DM signings, Soucek, Coufal, Bowen, Dawson who has been magnificent, his option to buy is an unbelievable £2m, that’s a no brainer!
I still wouldn’t be upset if it didn’t happen, would prefer to wait until until end of season, we will not be in relegation trouble, if we’ve done it so far with just Antonio up front with others contributing to goals, I see no reason why it can’t continue? Maybe he should play Ant less often to sustain him, we still have options in our squad? No doubt a few posters will want to shoot me down🤣⚒⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 19 Jan 2021 09:49:01
My gun is firmly in its holster, so I won’t be shooting you down Chelmsford. Your post makes good sense to me. 👍.

3.) 19 Jan 2021 11:07:14
I agree that we shouldn’t simply throw cash away, but there are some decent strikers out there. Daka would be my choice, if possible, but I won’t hold my breath.

Yes, we have done well so far this season, but we do look lean if Antonio goes down.

The clean sheets have been excellent, however we need to score to make one point into three.

I would be happier with another quality Striker.

4.) 19 Jan 2021 14:23:46
Agree to some degree Chelms, I would HATE for us to rush into a player that turns out to have NONE of the attributes we need (Hugill rings a bell) . I think Moyes is wiser now and he has already stated he wants PACE which is a relief. This said, I do not want us spending big on someone in this C.V. era, £20m is a real push/ risk for me. Personally I do not think we can stretch that far on one player, as we need a CM as well. So the Haller money needs to stretch over 2 players really, wise spending not BIG spending.
The point I disagree with is that we could cope without another striker as we are safe from relegation. I agree we are safe, but if we slip away from Europe this season then our star players Rice and Soucek WILL have offers and WILL be tempted if we are not close enough to Europe. We need to progress or we stand to lose these players.
Odubeko has talent but i doubt he is ready just yet (maybe we will see more vs Doncaster) and I'd love to see more of him as we need a striker urgently. We have been brilliant this season, but to get into Europe we need to score our chances. Here is some perspective; we should have been 3-0 up vs Man Utd before Pogba's goal that should have been a throw in, if we'd have won that game (and we should have) then we'd be 3 points off TOP right now. Top 4 is potentially achievable if we put away our chances. Antonio is key to our forward play ATM, and we cannot rely on his fitness so we need someone to compete.

5.) 19 Jan 2021 16:55:04
Nick, ideally of course I would love to get help for Antonio up front, but we are who we are, we are bait for the “Bounty Hunters” as I always call them! The January window is a poison chalice for clubs that make it known they are in the hunt for additional players! I’m sure DM is trying his hardest to recruit, but please no more expensive Damp Squibs for £20m! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 20 Jan 2021 03:04:14
It’s a tough one isn’t it? I agree with Chelmsford we certainly don’t want to bring someone in panicking, but on the other hand what better season to bring someone in as the opportunity for any team who puts a good run together far exceeds the chance most seasons. Just look at where we are and imagine if we had taken those two extra points against Palace or Brighton or both? Imagine if we had a striker in form and fitted the setup in that first half against Manchester United we would have been 2 or 3 up. All teams in and around us can say the same no doubt if looking back at some games but going forward if we can snatch a few more goals, a few more points, an unexpected finish could happen.

7.) 21 Jan 2021 08:31:19
I think we do need a new striker that can bed into the team rather than waiting till next transfer window to buy a player who will take time to get familiar with Dm tactics and if its a player outside the premier league then they don't always hit the ground running especially foriegn players so why we are in a strong position now is the time to get a striker in now as i'm sure we didn't even have a striker on the bench for the West brom game correct me if i'm wrong so let's get a young striker in to gel with our squad before the pre season starts for the new season starts.



03 Jan 2021 13:16:30
Ed. Is there any substance in the rumour that West Ham are speaking with Barcelona about the possible signing of Junior Firpo as a left sided full back?


{Ed002's Note - His representatives have said that Barcelona are happy for them to look at options for the player but that they want a sale rather than a loan Fiorentina, Fulham, Wolves, West Ham, Leicester, Milan, Newcastle, Napoli and Roma have apparently all been sounded out - I am not aware if there have been discussions with his club just yet, but they are happy to sell.}



23 Sep 2020 17:35:13
West Ham have made £23m offer for Wesley Forfana from St Etienne. That’s one out of the blue. Only concern of course is his age of 19.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 20:35:55
That’s £23m plus £10m in add ons but he’s a good young age and he will have to hit the ground running, we need him to be top draw from day one.

2.) 23 Sep 2020 21:23:19
The problem will be his injury record. (He hasn’t got one yet, but we haven’t signed him yet, either. )

3.) 23 Sep 2020 22:59:41
I just worry he will be another one for the future and there goes the kitty on someone who will be sold in a year or two without having played. Hopefully I am wrong.

4.) 24 Sep 2020 08:06:17
Sdl, Agreed, also Premiership or at least Championship experienced, as COYI said we need them to seamlessly slot in immediately if possible! Buying young is good but not for the future, we need them NOW! âš’âš’âš’.

5.) 24 Sep 2020 12:34:57
Don’t know what truth is in it but in the paper talk on sky it said that sully has said to a tabloid that there is little chance of us making any signings. So god knows.

6.) 24 Sep 2020 14:24:08
Whitby, hope you are well👍Also read he said he trusted MP to much with his expensive signings which has sucked most of our finances, but he said Managers have to Manage, said we have money for maybe a couple of signings, but DM has specific targets, he also said who he would sign, but didn’t name any players but did not want to start a “Civil War” within the club by interfering, so obviously not the same as DM is targeting? Big test against Wolves🤔🤔, hope Irvine picks a front 2 to experiment instead of Antonio on his own⚒⚒⚒⚒.

7.) 25 Sep 2020 11:22:37
I don’t know. Haller, perhaps?




COYI64's banter posts with other poster's replies to COYI64's banter posts


04 Aug 2023 15:54:42
I’ve said this before in the last few years and I’ll say it again.
Understandably we’re all getting a bit annoyed that no new incomings have materialised. However, let’s no forget window is open for another month.
I too take exception to the fact that Moyes “being old school” tends to only have belief in players with PL experience. However, let’s not forget that he signed Aguerd, Kehrer, Scammaca, Paqueta etc.
Now I’ll be honest and say JWP isn’t a bad target to have whereas Maguire and McTominay fill me with dread.
However, let’s sit tight and see what happens. More often than not many “fans” ( and I use the word loosely, post nothing but unhelpful comments about “dithering Dave, club is a joke, lowballing with transfer bids etc” and it’s annoying. Are you really fans? Spending a few quid watching a game or buying a replica shirt doesn’t give you an automatic entitlement to slag off the club many of us have supported for 50 years or more. It’s a damn business and run like a business…: wake up!
Let the power struggle continue at West Ham and sort itself out, be patient and hopeful that Steidten gets his way and Moyes gets judged on the relatively poor decisions he has made in the past for players.IMO the only players he’s signed that did ok was Bowen.
If they sign JWP, Maguire, McTominay and Peter Shelton in goal, I’ll still stand by my club.
Keep the faith Irons and stop openly criticising the club you say you support. Other fans from other clubs also read our posts and must be laughing their a**es off thinking WH fans are fickle and thick.


1.) 04 Aug 2023 18:32:11
Coyi64 that is singularly the most sensible post written on here in absolute months. Clubs know we have money burning a hole in our pockets and are therefore over valuing players in the hope we get desperate. If we panic buy those same players will be the ones that certain posters on here take great delight in slagging off later in the season.

In saying that Moyes isn’t helping and I for one felt he should have done the honourable thing and resigned after we won the Cup in Europe. In terms of replacing him, Graham Potter, Michael Carrick or Xabi Alonso would be my choice but having brought him in Tim Steiden needs listening to and working with. I’d take McGuire but would want that signing backed with young talent such as Fofana, Alverez and Broja/Balagun

2.) 04 Aug 2023 21:10:41
COYI64, I agree with your statement. If Moyse wishes to buy specific players and feels they will improve our side, then we need to back him. After all, Moyse works with these players and understands their strengths and weaknesses.

3.) 05 Aug 2023 05:19:41
???? Now that IS funny!

4.) 06 Aug 2023 09:17:53
Yes how can he have worked with players we haven't signed yet.doh!

5.) 07 Aug 2023 01:06:51
I think it's the Saudis throwing millions of pounds and ridiculous wages that's pushed the price up not because we've got £105million as we haven't got that money up front unless I'm mistaken ED am I wrong and I apologise if you've already clarified this matter.⚒⚒⚒

{Ed001's Note - they are causing the market to distort badly.}



31 Jan 2022 14:16:44

21 Jul 2021 00:50:55
Daisy hammer.
What we need to remember and comprehend is that may clubs are in financial crisis and trying to offload players for obscene prices to recoup what they have lost over the last 15 months during the C.V.
Equally, clubs just cannot afford these players at these prices.
It’s really a waiting game. When selling clubs get desperate and the window is a week away from closing, prices come down and then business can be done.
There are many really good players that need to be sold by many clubs to balance the books (West Ham are no exception) hence the shifting out of Anderson and Balbuena.
The window is still open for another 5 weeks and although it would be ideal to get in players now for pre-season, it’s not worth paying over the odds for players right now.
I have faith that within a week or two, we will make a good signing ( striker first I feel)


1.) 21 Jul 2021 08:22:39
COYI, Agreed entirely, not rocket scienceThat is the current situation full stop! Most obvious way to do business of any sort at any time, especially in these unprecedented times!
Start at the highest amount whilst you have time, sell at the lowest if you really need to!
Look what we achieved last season, yes we may lose players that were outstanding last season, but those clubs that are interested need to stump up what we value them at, so it’s a catch 22 situation? ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.



07 Jun 2021 18:20:14
I never finished by last post. Sent it by mistake. Coming back to Chris Woods, he’s a hard worker but I would expect far more from Moyes as a signing. He may work wonders with some players but you know the old saying. “you can’t polish a turd”
Not being too negative lads but if he signed this lad. underwhelmed wouldn’t be a word I’d use.


1.) 08 Jun 2021 10:38:20
I disagree I think wood would be decent he has scored 47 in 126 games over the last 4 years that's a decent return, he crucially stays fit and has done it in PL aswell, think he would be a nice option to have.

2.) 08 Jun 2021 17:12:01
Maybe 5 years ago. Burnley have him at £25M (More if some reports are to be believed) and there's no way on God's green earth he's worth ANYWHERE near that. 47 in 137 games it is and that's not £25M+ territory imho - especially for a player who's nearing 30 and will have little resale value in even a years time.

I'm sure there are younger big lumps we can be looking at should Moyes decide to go all Burnley-esque with his tactics.

I'm not knocking Burnley for their often route one approach as it works for them with Wood and Vydra - but since Moyes doesn't like playing 2 strikers I'm not at all convinced Wood would (no pun intended! ) suit us at all.



07 Jun 2021 18:17:38
West Ham linked with Chris Woods from Burnley?! Please tell me this is just mischief making by the press. I don’t care what signing Moyes has made last year, if he signs Woods, I’ll be disgusted. He’s a half decent striker but he ain’t what we are looking for surely. A big work horse in the ilk of Glen Murray, Brian Dean and lDean Windas.


1.) 08 Jun 2021 10:52:34
It’s all about who is available and wants to come to us, not who we want, hopefully the Euro step up should help us sign a few decent signings if they are on the move!

We would not have ended up as high as we did without Antonio, he is a workhorse and certainly not noted for his skills. All sides imo needs those type of player up front, they hustle and bustle and shake up defenders, creating opportunities for others up front, plus scoring themselves!
We absolutely need another strong attacker at least to supplement Antonio, Moyes likes grafters, if they are skilful with Premiership experience that’s a bonus! ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 08 Jun 2021 13:50:51
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.

We didn’t pay lingard what he wanted because he doesn’t deserve what he’s asking for. He plays half a season with us, scores a few goals and thinks he’s the next messiah. Who says he’s going to replicate that form again? Why should we pay him £150,000 a week which is more than the players we have earn who worked their nuts off for the team last season.
Let the greedy bustard go and play elsewhere.


{Ed001's Note - I don't understand the Lingard hype, he has never ever in his career had a sustained run of good performances. Even at West Ham he had injuries and dips in form and he was only with you a few months!}

Lingard going to Forest…:? My view… who cares. Let the money grabbing sh*t head go.
The fact he couldn’t get game time at Man Utd was probably down to his mentality and attitude as opposed to he footballing ability.
His behaviour and how he has conducted himself the last couple of weeks speaks volumes.
Believe me, we dodged a bullet here.
Let him languish in the footballing wilderness if Forest get relegated.

Sorry lads. I’m with Mo. Like the rest of you I want to see the Ukrainians have their spirits lifted in this tough time for them. However, Yarmalenko didn’t play well for us and hardly fitted in the Moyes “players have to work hard” category.
They already won Eurovision Song Contest because of their plight, because their song was woeful! Which made a mockery out of the contest. Albeit, it’s normally crap anyway. ???.
I think Moyes would have kept Yarmalenko had Yarmalenko demonstrated a willingness to put a shift in.
However, that’s just Yarmalenkos playing style and it’s hard to change at his age.
I wish him luck at another team.

Let’s calm down to a panic lads. Calling for the owners to leave our club is simply pathetic! NEVER in the 19 years of being owners of the club have DGS failed to bring in a transfer.
My opinion, this is Moyes who has dithered somewhat. Giving Moyes the responsibility identify his own targets and the appointment of Newman ( who Moyes chose) clearly suggests to me the buck stops with Moyes and Newman.
I think we need to understand the full picture before we all storm the boardroom.
Moyes has had not 31 days of a transfer window but a year to identify a striker but he leaves it all until the last minute. Krezinsky is also not to blame. Funds were available to Moyes. I would suggest that DGS are just as disappointed as we as fans are. If we don’t finish 4th, it’s then who end up sucking hind tit commercially.
To be frank, most fans haven’t got a scooby do about what’s going on.
And with our “ex-employee insider” that everybody seems to think had an insight into the going ons within the club, where was his heads up on Zapata. We all read the continuous reams of codswallop he writes and castigate the owners when nothing he says comes to fruition.’
Next time he says we are going to sign Father Christmas let’s all rush out and buy a replica shirt with “Santa” printed on the back shall we.
Let’s just see how the season pans out without the reinforcements. If we have a disappointing season, for me it’s Moyes that needs to answer for it and NOT the Board.
There… that’s my rant over too.

Thanks Dabber. ? The rest of the lads on here I thinking what a self righteous opinionated git I am. ???
Honestly, I’m no great fan of Gold and Sullivan, but I also know that potentially they saved us back in the day and as millionaires (not billionaires like so many other club owners ) they have dug deep into their pockets on more than one occasion. They have kept us afloat during a pandemic and still managed to find us a “reputable” investor. Need I say more?
I’m a fan grateful for what they have done, in spite of Thor faults.

Having seen Man Utd performance against Southampton and Wolves, they weren’t all that were they? Wolves were very unlucky.
I do wish we played Man Utd last week before they signed Ronaldo. We all know that everyone’s first goal comes or drought ends against our lot. 😂😂
Let hope we’re keep Ronaldo in the pocket and he struggles to adapt to the pace of EPL for a few weeks.

Dunno about you lot by I was sick to death of hearing all about Ronaldo and Mbappe yesterday like they are the only two players worth rambling on about. I mean, it’s not like Mbappe is even associated with English football.

Spot on Markwhu

We complained when GSB involved themselves in transfers and Pelligrini bought complete duds when left to his own devices.

I agree with you. Last 4 games of the season Lingaard never stood out as a player we should be busting our gut to get this season.
I’d take Matheus Perreira too for the £11m and invest the extra £10 we would have spent on Lingaard towards our striker target or a left back.

BiddefordJohn. Have to agree with Iron. Al on his comment. Abrahams plus £30m is a rip off.
Abrahams plus £60m might tempt me.

Not sure it is a decision for Rice to make while he’s still on a 3 year contract. As the holder of his contract, it may welll be worth hanging onto him for another year to give the bigger clubs time to recoup their losses that they incurred over the last 15 months. Then Rice can improve further and we can indeed demand at least another £20m for him when clubs have more money.
This helps West Ham for another year while we retain the backbone of our midfield whilst in Europe which generate extra revenue and puts an extra £20m in the transfer kitty.
If we don’t need to sell him this year, then let’s not sell him.
I think if the club sat down with Rice and had a candid chat explaining the situation and agreed that next year, we would listen to more sensible offers when the financial crisis is over, offer him a vastly improved contract for another year - he may just accept that.
I’m of the same opinion as MarkHammer that if White is worth £50m then Rice has got to be worth at least £85m.
White never features in Euros, there are a good number of good centre backs in the premierleague pool and good defensive English midfielders like Riice are as rare as ducks teeth.
