Does anyone have a clue what Rob Oldwoman has been doing? He is supposed to find players for dithering Dave, I thought that between the 2 of them they would have players lined up early on, but no this window is exactly the same as previous ones.

Its the way we work dude. Scatter gun and then they wait to see what's the best deal they cam get. Every window is the same and I for one am getting a little suck of hearing pondering, mulling, considering

Whilst I understand what you are both saying about our scattergun approach but there is an air of difference this window compared to previous windows.

We are being linked to all and sundry because journalists know we need players and therefore link us to all and sundry.

We have signed our first choice left footed centre back and our first choice goalkeeper already this window. Admittedly, it might have taken longer than people anticipated, but both were on international duty and signed within a short period of being back.

We have a first choice striker target it would appear and that’s Armando Broja but Chelsea aren’t going to sell just because we are interested, especially now Lukaku has rejoined Inter Milan, they’re going to want to see what the lad can do in pre-season or at least sign a forward or two of their own before letting him go. Apparently they have bids in for Raphinha and Sterling, so it might not be all that long we have to wait.

I get the impression we have our preferred targets in mind, we’ve probably approached their respective clubs and we are prioritising those whilst still looking at other options if our preferred choice doesn’t work out.

Borja might not happen so we’re exploring the possibility of Danjuma from Villarreal instead. Perfect example.

Most of what you are reading or seeing online is journalists and news outlets and sports pages simply throwing names about because they’re a player West Ham MIGHT be interested in should they like to sign a player in a position.

What I don’t understand and I am struggling with this window is the lack of central midfielders we are looking at. We lost Noble and Kral at the end of the season and apparently we’re willing to sell Soucek. Which would leave us with Declan Rice as our only real central midfielder (Lanzini, Fornals and Vlasic are more attack minded).

Plenty of time left to look at centre midfield and i'm not convinced Soucek is going anywhere, its just journalists making up stories

I would like to see Moyes take a punt on Anthony Martial, he had a spanking season in 19/20 and scored 23 in 48 and 19 of them in the prem so has got what it takes, think he has just lost his way and he is only 26. What do other think.

Got to agree with Ed here. Moyes should stick well clear of Martial.

Not for me, one decent season in Champ but prior to that only 9 goals in 80 games, hardly prolific. In my opinion better out there as back ups.

I would be concerned that he will be another Vlasic, didn't do much in prem. Went abroad did well and so far as Vlasic is concerned can't cut the mustard again in the prem.

Broja scored 6 in 32, Dennis at Watford is miles cheaper and scored 10 in 33 in a strange country for a crap team, Dennis every time for me.

Have they got a spare decent LB as we sorely need one!

Rather than Broja in my opinion a great signing would be Belotti, he started career as midfielder / winger, can play as a No10, wants to come to the Prem so seems ideal signing.

That's the problem Newman doesn't appear to be doing his job!

Sorry but I agree with MAINLANDER, they have had since January to sign foreign players that will be free agents, nothing. They have had since January to identify players they want to sign in this window and one addition to the squad (Areola excluded as he was in squad already)so that means we are 3 down on the wafer thin squad we had last year. 18 months to sign a Haller replacement. No MikesIron I am not a negative supporter, I am a season ticket holder and a realist who sees the likes of Villa getting their deals done early, so the new players can bond and join pre season and can see us waiting till the last week to pick up bargain basement signings. I hope I am proved wrong and have to eat humble pie I really do. Every window is the same, Newman has made absolutely no difference!
