C&h reporting we could sign JWP and Mctominay within the next 72 hours.

French publication reported we have opened talked for Wahi.


1.) 10 Aug 2023 16:33:58
One or the other apparently. More money for moyes to waste

2.) 10 Aug 2023 18:56:08
Depends how you read into the quote on the site however ex has now suggested the same.

Doesn't bode well for the Paqueta situation. Considering soucek has signed a new contract aswell.

Apprently the club are holding out for 95m for Paqueta if you add in the Rice, Scamacca and Vlasic money looking at around 230m brought in plus what ever was available before the sales. Crazy money hopefully that gives steidten a chance to bring in some young talent.

3.) 13 Aug 2023 02:31:28
Please not MCTOMINAY especially for the money being rumoured to be FOFANA is on a different planet than him but he's not a premiership proven player could somebody please tell me why why why the FU-K did STEIDTEN come to WEST HAM when we have got a complete CONTROL FREAK in MOYES that the foreign talent STEIDTEN has spotted SERGEANT MOYES has told the other CONTROL FREAK JIM MY "SULLY" CRANKY he doesn't want them as they either haven't played for UTD or in the premier league.

4.) 14 Aug 2023 00:14:10
We bought Scamacca last year from outside of the Premier league, nobody had heard of him and guess what ….it didn’t work out . How many times have you seen Fofana play and what makes you so certain he’ll be better than what we’ve already got? I don’t understand why you would think somebody is on a different planet to options who have played in the PL?

5.) 16 Aug 2023 15:44:31
McTominay played on left wing other day; if he's happy with it then fine. If not, come to the Olympic stadium lad!

6.) 16 Aug 2023 16:18:50
Paqueta slightly different position but same background though mate. He is going to get us 100k more. Or stay and be brilliant hopefully.



04 Aug 2023 11:32:10
According to Alan Nixon, we've requested the medical info for both Maguire and Mctominay.

Looks like Moyes is getting his way, shame because there are better, cheaper, younger options available.


1.) 04 Aug 2023 14:04:00
I bloody hope not!
Apparently, Tim Steidten has promised “signings in two days”.

2.) 04 Aug 2023 15:35:20
Where did you hear that tin? C&H's source confirm the medical request is true for Maguire but not the case with Mctominay.

One thing I do know is the media are having an absolute field day. Daily star saying that moyes and Steidten came to blows? what an absolute circus. Honestly I didn't want Rice to leave but with the fee and Stiedten coming in I was optimistic we'd push on but instead we get this.

3.) 04 Aug 2023 21:13:19
I don’t know the strength of it, but West Ham Network were claiming an exclusive earlier today, quoting Steidten. He didn’t say which players. Just described them as “signings”.

4.) 05 Aug 2023 01:38:46
Alvarez is most likely signed I hear.

5.) 05 Aug 2023 01:40:22
More likely to be Alvarez and Fofana than the Utd lads.

6.) 05 Aug 2023 01:52:17
Nixon may have pulled a rabbit out of the hat there, from what I hear.

7.) 05 Aug 2023 14:54:41
Must have been David Nixon ?if you’re old enough to remember who he was??⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

8.) 05 Aug 2023 20:50:41
Exactly my dear Chelmsford!

9.) 08 Aug 2023 11:14:47
Steidten meant he is going to sign two autographs.

10.) 08 Aug 2023 19:51:55
I'd rather MAQUIRE than MCTOMINAY a million percent.no sorry £35 million percent.⚒⚒⚒?‍♂️



20 Jul 2023 13:14:32
Romano has given the here we go on Carlos Borges to West Ham, 19 year old from Man city, 28 goals and 16 assists in 32 games. 14m could turn into a real bargain.

Surprised Cresswell is looking likely to go but happy to see we are being linked with some top young LBs. Just need Emerson to play like he's playing in a cup final every week.


1.) 20 Jul 2023 14:17:00
Now that is some good news on Borges. He is some player for the future. Moyes must be spitting blood.

2.) 20 Jul 2023 14:45:17
Wow, Borges is an exciting prospect and at £14m a bargain. This has TIM written all over it because this is not a MOYES choice. TIM "The Pearl" has done it again, grabbing young talent that can be sold on for massive profits

3.) 20 Jul 2023 15:01:21
Not sure if anyone has told Moyes yet ? just need Noble nd Steidten to keep Moyes away from talking to him before he's signed.

On a more serious note Exwhuemployee reported our interest in Borges a couple months back so maybe even a rob Newman recommendation.

We are being linked to Adrein Truffert again 21 year old LB, remember us being linked to him same time we signed Aguerd from Rennes. Very promising.

4.) 20 Jul 2023 15:26:49
Man City want a buy back clause in the Borges deal so basically if he turns out to be absolutely brilliant then there’s nothing we can do of Man City want him back, just feels like we’re the ones developing him and giving him game time which City can’t do given the size of their squad ?

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as that and not how buy back clauses work.}

5.) 21 Jul 2023 15:59:31
We have always had links with the Borgias in recent years.



14 Jul 2023 12:13:39
Ornstein reporting we've made am enquiry for EDSON ALVAREZ, bid expected to follow.

He actually outperforms Rice in a lot of metrics granted in the Eredivise.


1.) 14 Jul 2023 13:47:36
Real Betis have shown a ‘formal interest’ in West Ham United midfielder Pablo Fornals, with Manuel Pellegrini keen on signing the player.

2.) 14 Jul 2023 15:40:36
Always liked Pablo, can't help but feel that Moyes coached the flare out of him crazy to think in his first season for villareal he scored 4 goals and laid on 13 assists.

Would be sad to see him go as he genuinely has passion for the club but if we can get 15-20m for him then reinvest in younger players wouldn't be the worst thing to happen.

3.) 14 Jul 2023 19:28:54
Rice coaches the flair out of every player he comes across. No wonder Benrahma and Paqueta have issues with him.

4.) 14 Jul 2023 20:12:24
I think you mean Moyes, not Rice.
If I’m honest, although he’s a really nice bloke, I’ve always thought Fornals was too inconsistent. He’s weak on the ball and seems to lose the ball a helluva lot and his shooting accuracy could do with improvement. I don’t think he’d be a big miss and I’d rather the club had 15 million than Fornals.

5.) 14 Jul 2023 22:04:29
Haha! Yep, meant Moyse. I blame the second malt whisky.

6.) 15 Jul 2023 11:39:22
So as things stand its looking like fornals, rice, lanzini and possibly downes will be gone which leaves soucek and paqueta. Paqueta has just changed agents? And soucek wants a pay rise? Apparently we are closing in on declan rice replacement.Denis zakaria? Not so sure about that

7.) 15 Jul 2023 14:57:02
Moyes SEZ seemples make Any and Bowen midfield wingers then play Vlasic and Scamacca up front lol

8.) 15 Jul 2023 15:06:22
Rofl and it seems meeting planned with agents of scamacca in the next 48 hours with a view to moving yo roma?

9.) 15 Jul 2023 19:55:45
Finalize some Bunga bungas to make sure he goes eh mate

10.) 19 Jul 2023 11:56:14
Would he literally be able to take the heat in Italy now

11.) 26 Jul 2023 21:54:59
And we have a Cretan ( sic ) in charge still.



28 Jun 2023 14:53:45
Rumoured that with Tim Steidten as our new director of football he'd look to bring in Jonathan Tah. Shame he can't bring diaby and frimpong with him.


1.) 29 Jun 2023 12:40:05
The sooner we get him in place the better. We might then see some movement in the market when its not just left to dithering DAVE.

2.) 29 Jun 2023 13:40:16
Should be interesting to see who has the control in the transfers. Its no good Steidten identifying good players for Moyes to refuse similar to when he's refused Caicedo, Hlozek, julian Alvarez. Or Steidten will sign players and Moyes will give them minimal game time in Europe playing out of position Ie Downes.

Apprnelty Dortmund think Edson Alvarez is to expensive so might be an opportunity for us there. I hope so.

Sad to see Rice go but just want it done now so we can start bringing in players with the funds.

3.) 29 Jun 2023 15:56:23
I reckon a bit of a bust up might be on the horizon once Moyes no longer controls transfers

4.) 29 Jun 2023 16:02:13
ADAM HLOZEK was such a waste letting him go to Leverkusen

5.) 29 Jun 2023 17:47:06
Completely agree on both Oshee, we had an opportunity go sign Hlozek when some of the biggest clubs in Europe had been looking at him. Remember reports of Moyes not thinking he was good enough or not ready. Just short-sightedness and stubbornness that it wasn't his pick it sounded like to me. Very frustrating after all his talk about following a model similar to the RB teams in buying young talent.

I Hope Sulli is taking a step back now and allowing proper footballing people take control of football matters, and if it comes to it allow steidten to bring in a manager maybe even Alonso?

6.) 29 Jun 2023 19:31:05
Yeah, apparently Steidten was at the helm of Alonso's appointment

7.) 29 Jun 2023 23:11:16
Downes was infamously played on the wing if my memory serves me well.

8.) 29 Jun 2023 23:19:23
Just read this article on transfers he's over seen at leverkusen and bremen, If he makes those kind of signings for us it would take us to the next level. wouldn't be letting Moyes anywhere near the Rice money he'd happily blow it on ward prowse, Maguire and Mctominay.

9.) 03 Jul 2023 23:36:47
I don't think DOWNES has played in his favoured position and if we sell him it will be shocking as I've never seen him play badly in his few starts and cameo roles.⚒⚒⚒

Hope Moyes isn't risking Paqueta to save his own skin, if he gets another bad injury we'll be out of europa fast and sliding down the table even faster.




20 Dec 2023 21:46:51
Pathetic performance well done DM.


1.) 21 Dec 2023 02:10:56
Yes, well done Dave, keep it up. After all, you’ve turned a corner, and hopefully found the door marked ‘exit’.



15 Dec 2023 16:58:27
Funny how all the Moyes in camp came out of the woodwork after that win, especially when it proves all the Moyes out lot were right considering its us that have been clamouring for us to go out and attack teams and not sit In a low block, hoofing it ala Moyesball.

As for those that think we should temper our expectation and we've never had it so good, we've also spent more than any other time in history, Moyes has spent more than any other manager in our history. Our expectation is exactly where it should be and that's challenging for European places, not getting played off the park by lesser teams most weeks and playing some of the worst football in the league to watch.


1.) 16 Dec 2023 06:38:57
Well you’ve been in Europe for the last 3 seasons in a row, won one European trophy, got to semis another year and now in last 16 this year having won 5/6 games.

Your 2-3 points off European places and Newcastle/Man Utd (who have spent insane amounts of money by the way) .

Based on all of that, I’d say you are achieving your expectation of “challenging for European places”.

Also, how has spending a billion in one year worked out for Chelsea so far?

The football might be dry, but trying to detract from what he’s achieved is a joke frankly

2.) 16 Dec 2023 12:40:00
Not detracting from what he has achieved. Getting us into Europe in his first full season was a major achievement, the second season again was going great I think we were top 4 and in last 16 of europa at the midway point, if I was then to be critical we didn't invest at all that January, Moyes decided to wait until the summer and we slid down into 7th and were knocked out in the semis, again still a good achievement but you could argue if we invested we could have won it.

The poor league form continued into his 3rd season spending the majority of it in a relgation battle, Moyes did sight/blame that we did bring in a lot of new players in one window (his choice to do so) . However we did win a trophy we were expected to challenge for. So credit there which probably kept him the job.

The point i was making is when we attack we look better we've got the players to blow teams away however Moyes continually opts for low block. There has been so many games this season where we look clueless much like the last. Fortunately we got very lucky in some of the games so our league position hasn't suffered much.

I think a lot of fans see we have some very good players that could challenge for europa and entertain under a more attack minded set up.

3.) 17 Dec 2023 20:43:50
We haven't played a team worth talking about in Europe yet so the easy ride should be over.⚒⚒⚒

4.) 18 Dec 2023 06:57:08
Agreed. Desperate Dave has been riding his luck so far, so let’s see what happens now. Funny how incompetent coaches draw an easy ride. Just look at Southgate’s England group in his latest draw compared to the other groups.



12 Nov 2023 15:05:39
Knew we would sit back after the first goal, would honestly love it if we used the momentum of a goal to go and take the game away from the opposition but no not under Moyes.

Soucek off for Antonio, stick Kudus i'm CAM.

Kehrer or Mavro for Coufal.

Shame Mubama can't even make the bemch


1.) 12 Nov 2023 19:58:11
Tom Rennie told West Ham to sack David Moyes within days midway through the game against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

The talkSPORT broadcaster tweeted on Sunday that now is a “nice time to say goodbye” to the Hammers boss as he is “done” with the football currently being served up at the London Stadium.

2.) 13 Nov 2023 09:53:56
Moyes has been sprinkled with fairy dust, so I can't see him going soon. If he's not a betting man, he should be with his luck. I just wish he'd F off so we could start building for the future, but judging from his recent comments, he views himself as the man to rebuild! He's more suited to rebuilding Hadrian's Wall. He actually believes all those media football pundits - the so-called "experts", who are in reality failures. Listening to some of them, I wonder if they're talking about football. It's as if Moyes' awful record as Everton manager was something to be proud of! Deluded.



09 Aug 2023 00:41:31
Romano confirming Man city's interest in Paqueta.

Tuttomercatoweb reporting 70m bid that hasn't been rejected yet as we will ask for more.

If we sell him we are a joke club.

Maybe come back next season with a 100m and we will consider it.


1.) 09 Aug 2023 07:08:21
And this is why bigger clubs get better and better every season whereas clubs like us either stand still or go backwards.

Straight in with a £70m offer which is a £20m profit for us.

If that was us, we would have bid £35m and taken all summer to then haggle and then finally somebody else would offer the asking price

We are STILL haggling over the £5m more that Saints want forJWP? If we want him that bad, pay it. I'd suggest that if we do sell Paqueta we go get FOFANA AND GALLAGHER and A NEW MANAGER

2.) 09 Aug 2023 07:18:01
If Man City want him, they will get him. I would hope that if we do sell him we have replacements lined up and not on man utd players. How about Harewood-bellis, Cole Palmer and £70m

3.) 09 Aug 2023 07:46:20
“ Maybe come back next season with a 100m and we will consider it.”

Is absolutely the right approach. He has what, 3 or 4 years left on his contract? So the club is in the driving seat.

We cannot afford to lose our two best players in one window.

4.) 09 Aug 2023 09:11:17
Absolutely agree Mmpr, but, this is WEST HAM run by DAVID SULLIVAN and MAN CITY who want him so the odds are pretty much stacked in CITY's favour.

IF, we had actually got a move on through the summer and bought more players this might not have been so painful, but, the way things currently stand, we will have virtually no midfield (especially if we get injuries) . We have no attack (Lets face it, Mubama and Ings are not going to cut it in the premier league), SCamacca GONE, VLASIC GONE, ANTONIO wants out, CRESSWELL wants OUT it just gets worse

5.) 09 Aug 2023 11:50:47
Unfortunately it appears he now has an 85m release clause that will become active next summer.

If they do decide they want him this window we've got to ask 100m. That's the premium you pay to get him after his first year and takes the opportunity for other clubs to come in at 85m

Sully bottled the Osman deal.

Disgraceful how we've lost this one to Brighton when he wanted to come here and all the recruitment team were agreed he was the main target at LW. Have a sneaking feeling that Moyes wasn't that bothered about this one though.

The left-side was supposed to be where we need strengthened and we are letting both Benrahma and Fornals go. Let's hope this mystery loan deal doesn't fall through, also gives moyes an excuse to keep pushing paqueta out on the left and keep soucek nd jwp centrally.

No point in getting a striker Moyes doesn't know how to use them.

Never heard of the guy but if he's a young talent steidten has identified then I'm all for it, that being said haven't seen any credible sources report this one yet.

Sully didn't back him though, he pulled out of the Osman deal because Barry Silkman said he was overpaying, he's listend to an agent over his recruitment team. Also it's said that Stiedten put 8 names to Moyes and said no to them all.

So if Liverpool interest is genuine why wouldn't he go?

Egg, I thought you were pro Moyes?

Strikers are Wasted on Moyes anyway.

The thought of him getting a new contract makes me sick. Steidten will be off and nothing will change until Sulli is gone. The sooner we put pressure on him the better can see why he likes Moyes as we direct anger at Moyes and not him.

Well said whitby! Hope I'm wrong but I can't see this being a good watch from our perspective. Aguerd straight back in can see lots of long diagonals to Kudus and Soucek.

Personally I'm getting sick of people that don't live and breath West ham sticking their twopence in.

It's ironic to me that when you have differnt pundits or commentators on talking about us they say the same thing time and time again, "West ham haven't created anything at all" "they haven't woken up" "they can't seem to pass the ball forward" honestly could go on but they see the league table and West hams name and think we should be oh so grateful to Moyes and it's all down to him.

We have stayed in games by being camped in our own half extremely lucky to not be 3-4 down then moments of brilliance from Paq kudus bowen or set pieces have somehow managed to nick us points. It's diabolical to watch and if we continue to perform the way we have been there is no way we can continue to be so lucky.
