12 m for Fonte wouldn't by Defoe as he had no sell on value get real we won't pay 12 m for 32 year old. Here we are interested in Grey from Burnley good prospect.


1.) 19 Jan 2017 13:17:12
Surely can't be 12 mil.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 09:32:29
Reports on ssn showing 8



22 Aug 2016 11:53:32
Can anyone tell me what's happening with Sakho? . If he is staying he has to be a better option than Valencia. Yesterday highlighted the need for a good quick striker.


{Ed002's Note - He won't leave without a replacement being found.}

1.) 22 Aug 2016 12:26:27
NOTHING at oresent he's still not fit. So he can't play and it's doubtful he will be fit enough to shift this window, I would not be totally suprised because of this, IF he is re inter-grated into the squad , WH lost the chance to be rid of Valencia, this window, he will probably be outed January, IRONMIKE.

2.) 22 Aug 2016 12:46:07
Thanks Mike would be good to see Velencia moved out and new blood in.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 13:17:22
calleri looked class yesterday, valencia's can't even play a simple pass balls always stuck in his feet and I've never seen anybody trip over the ball as much as him, agree we won't get rid of him but who'd want him how he's scored so many international goals is astounding, calleri has to be our main striker at this time he looks very good. COYI.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 13:52:54
We all seem to have short memories. I agree he's been poor so far since coming back from injury, but his first season he was great and talk of big money transfer to Chelsea and we all wanted him to stay. Just playing devils advocate but if he got his confidence back and Sakho got fit and was also the player from 2 seasons back I think it would be like 2 new signings. not saying that will happen but stranger things have happened!

5.) 22 Aug 2016 15:17:42
I'd let them both go they've had 2 seasons each, valencia is actually getting worse I think poor positioning, ball control no strength , think it's time we cut our losses and moved on with him and I don't want sahko back in team his ego is big enough imagine how bad he will be if we let him back.

6.) 22 Aug 2016 18:07:39
totally agree robbo and my brothers a season t/ holder at chelsea and knows staff that work their they were never interested in valencia, and the sakho thing is refuses to go on pre season tour and can't get himself fit he should never put the shirt on again that's my opinion, seems since playing at the london stadium ZAZA has done a u turn and wants to come now is it true MIKE?

7.) 22 Aug 2016 20:19:36
YES he would come, JUVE want to sell outside of Italy, but the Wolfsburg deal went sour so IF a deal could be done with WH, they would take it I think they won't take less than 28m euros, probably with some add ons, WH want To loan TRY and BUY if you like firs to see what's he's like in the premier, TO ME Zaza would be fine in the premier he is a quality player, WH are looking short term so BONY is favourite, however IF JUVE agree to a loan to buy, don't be shocked IF we take both of them AS Bony will only be there for a short time IF his china deal comes to fruition IRONMIKE.

8.) 22 Aug 2016 20:44:19
I like zaza I think his work ethic and physicality are right for the PL don't think he will have to many problems adapting he can play up top on his own and will chase everything.



21 Jun 2016 20:23:03
Any more interest around Callum Wilson would be a good buy, good strong player.


1.) 21 Jun 2016 20:30:19
There doesn't seem to be any further interest from WH at oresent, IRONMIKE.

2.) 22 Jun 2016 08:09:28
Perisic looked really good last night, class act. Why don't we go for him!

3.) 22 Jun 2016 09:31:16
I think we need to have a quick sort of round up cause so many names being linked. Anyone got anything they wish to contribute! Apparently Lacazette bid dead and buried and Batshuyi wants Champs League football. Wolfsburg have apparently bid 25m euro for Zaza. Braithwaite Apparently in talks with us? Carlos Bacca is apparently waiting to find out what's happening with AC Milan takeover. Not heard anymore on Fekir, Ben Yedder or Slimani but Leicester apparently very interested in Slimani. Wissam Ben Yedder at Toulouse scored 17 times with a team that finished 17th? Gregory van der Wiel is set to disappoint his Premier
League suitors by joining Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

{Ed002's Note - The situation with Lacazette remains the same - it was never going to be easy dealing with Lyon who want more for a sale to an English side than elsewhere - the CL is what the player wants.

Michy Batshuayi has not been subject to an o0ffer from West Ham and whilst Marseille has spoken to three sides about the player one of those has stepped back. The reality is he will move this summer and I don't expect it will be to West Ham as it stands right now.

I would not rule out Bacca although the player says he is happy with Milan but he wants changes - and they would be happy to sell as they don't want players demanding changes. His agent has made a further unsolicited approach to West Ham and another English side but given his age and price it would be a tough call to make.

Fekir is another tough call given the past season was lost to injury, his desire to play for another side - and how would WHU fit him in to the side.

Juventus will let him leave in the summer for anyone matching their asking price - which is very high, unless they lose Morata when they will look to hold on to Zaza. It looks likely that Juventus will lose Morata and are not interested in the Real Madrid proposal to send him back to Turin. There is interest from WHU but for now, nothing.

Braithwaite remains a very good option for WHU.

Interest from WHU in Slimani is on the back burner right now.

I would certainly strike Ben Yedder off your list Phil - apart from their being no WHU interest his future is pretty much mapped out.

Gregory van der Wiel wants Champions League Football and after not being able to agree terms with Roma or Monaco may need to take up the option of the money but no European football at Galatasaray. There was no WHU interest.}

4.) 22 Jun 2016 11:01:31
Thanks for your update ED0002. Of all the strikers we've been linked with (and there are quite a few) who can you REALLY see ending up at West Ham.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that WHU has not been making multiple offers per day on players - it really doesn't work like that and it would be chaotic if it did. I cannot say who will actually sign, I can tell you where there is interest when I know it. Braithwaite would be a good buy and it can happen. After that, I suspect it may take a while before anything is clear.}



11 Jun 2016 14:33:37
What's happened to our interest in Slimani? He would be so good for our style of play. any news Mike.


1.) 11 Jun 2016 20:15:09
Hey Corbyhammer is there a local Hammers support club in Northants? Just moved from Beds to Desborough.

2.) 11 Jun 2016 22:20:40
Booshmoon not that I know of but there are one or two hammers around. do you go down to the games. I've got my ticket for the juve game.

3.) 11 Jun 2016 22:54:34
I was an ST holder up to end this season but not going next season too many commitments! But yes got Juve ticket!

4.) 12 Jun 2016 00:49:41
Maybe get together and find a pub during the new season to watch the hammers.

5.) 12 Jun 2016 07:56:30
Yer your not far away from me. my daughter comes with me all the time we'll get something planned.

6.) 12 Jun 2016 09:52:50
Nice one will be good to meet some fellow Hammers.



09 May 2016 18:06:01
Ironmike who is the 30m euro striker we have bid for?


1.) 09 May 2016 18:33:23
Emile heskey.

Well no fight no flare and no passing to our players. Why can’t we keep the ball. One up front is a complete waste of time. I cannot see us surviving as other teams seem to play for the shirt more. A bloody disgrace the last two performances. Oh and Rice will be gone next season.


1.) 24 Jun 2020 00:52:37
I love rice, but he is soooooo good for our team . I hope he has same passion noble has and stays.



27 Jan 2020 18:48:07
Hope he doesn’t watch Wednesday’s game he will be on the next plane out of London.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 08:04:17
What chances issa diop to arsenal.



12 Jun 2019 12:14:08
See we have Watford away first game.


1.) 12 Jun 2019 16:44:06
it did come from twitter so we will have to wait and see if its actually true.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 09:14:48
City at home.



10 Feb 2019 08:37:36
What’s your thoughts on Fredricks. The last two games I have read most reports some are good some not so. I watched the game Monday night and yes he started nervously but I thought he grew into the game. Yesterday I read when he gets home he will find Saha in his pocket other reports say get Zaba on ASAP. What’s your opinion.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 10:00:35
Not yesterday he didn’t. I think he’s a way off both confidence and full match fitness it will come, he also hasn’t got the tactical Nous of Zabletta, , but there’s no way I would want to part with him this summer, he has to learn positioning of a full back is all not all about bombing forward as a winger IRONMIKE.

2.) 10 Feb 2019 11:28:32
I too thought he was decent on Monday. But yesterday from just watching the highlights there were moments he was completely lost and looked out of his depth.
I hope they keep him and give home more cameo roles and his confidence will hopefully grow. There have been a few players in the past that never got a look in at first. I’m thinking Antonio and Bale at spuds. I know he isn’t in Bales league but hopefully will come good with time.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 15:16:53
I was at the London Stadium Monday and watched the whole of the game yesterday I thought he did OK in both games maybe could have done better for the Zaha goal but then so could have Snodgrass understandably not up to full match fitness after the long lay off

As an aside there is of course Sam Byron to come back at the end of the season be interesting to see if he has improved.

4.) 10 Feb 2019 19:36:23
Saha is a good player who gives many fullbacks a torrid time. I wouldn’t judge too quickly, he needs to get a run of games, settle, and he will play against a lot less tricky quick players than Saha.

5.) 11 Feb 2019 00:30:41
His pace was enough in the Championship. You need more than that in the Prem. I think he could be good enough to learn and become a very good right back, but his decision making and positioning must improve.



09 Feb 2019 13:45:54
Syd can’t disagree with you that Billy played like us supporters wanted to see. Over the years it is difficult to say who was the best. Sir trev for me was excellent, Jonny sissons was a personal favourite growing up. But so glad that BB is getting this honour. I think all us hammers will have a personal favourite but all will agree long over due this accolade for Bonzo.

Yes but only to make up the numbers never going to win it
Would be a great signing for us fingers cross that London and our salary can persuade him.

For a club with little or no transfer fund seems strange to put all the eggs into one player. There must be cheaper and hungrier options out there that can strengthen the squad.

Raver shows how poor you were against a very poor West Ham side.

Unfortunately there are more important things in the world than a game of football. Whatever they do it will upset someone. If they can resume the league in 3 weeks carry on but I have the feeling this virus is going to get worse before it improves. If in 3 weeks time it has not improved write this season off and start again in August. Hopefully we will still be in the prem.
One little thought, if they do scrap this years league what do they do with the Bury situation?

Just goes to show that there is progression this season but we are a mid table team currently. The squad is not good enough and I think a few more windows before we are in a better place.
