Looks like we could be going for Broja next hope this is true. Young and fits our style of play.

Iron.Al

1.) 20 Jun 2022 20:15:42
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.


2.) 20 Jun 2022 20:31:08
Tricky one this. 6 goals in 32 PL games last season and none in his last 13 appearances doesn't smack of a £30M quid footballer - But I've had a look back and some of his performances last season and there are signs he could become a very, very decent striker.

I'll be honest and admit I was very underwhelmed when there were rumours about him a few weeks ago, but after a rethink, his age and potential, in hindsight make him a shrewd move.

Hopefully Chelsea are willing to play ball and we can get him without any of their daft sell-on or buy-back clauses.


3.) 20 Jun 2022 21:41:38
The watford player isn't a striker really can play there but he played more on the left and think that more were he goals came from
I like the chelsea youngster big lad strong and think he could suit what moyes it trying to do


4.) 20 Jun 2022 23:26:52
Dennis highest scoring season was 12 in the Belgium league.

Brojas potential is so much more than dennis not many 20 year olds will score 6 in 21 starts 11 subs in prem. 2 appearances in the league Cup 2 goals, 3 subs in FA cup 1 goal. Isn't bad at all but he brings a lot more than goals watched him really bully defenders at times very strong and quick.


5.) 21 Jun 2022 09:27:35
for pace and Power i like Adama Traore for sure goals will come


6.) 22 Jun 2022 00:20:00
Dont he play on the right give me bowan anyday
Sometimes you watch him he looks unplayable then others time looks like he has to left feet
Really not sure about him tbh


7.) 22 Jun 2022 07:08:48
Not so sure about Broja. I don't think its good to throw all our eggs in that basket. For £30m we could be looking at hwang ui-jo and Dennis. Hwang scored 11 goals last season in a poor Bordeaux side that got relegated. I'd also prefer En Nesyri. OK


8.) 22 Jun 2022 11:25:09
Brora is a very good player and the right fit for us young and very quick if Chelsea decide to sell then it's a yes for me


9.) 22 Jun 2022 17:48:08
30m is a lot but depends on deal if it like 5m clause if he score 20 goal in a season or something simular could be just the job but 30m outright does seem a lot especially with the ammount of players that we need


10.) 24 Jun 2022 11:57:31
Not in today's market you get quoted £20 million for players that are no better than championship standard so if and we won't get broja for £30 then I'd be very pleased if we could get broja.


 

 

15 Jun 2022 14:28:09
And there it Is Newcastle trying to hijack Aguerd deal. Mentioned In a previous post if they struggle to get there main left side cb in Botman they may turn to him. Now they could blow us out the water in terms of wages and transfer. Hopefully Aguerd isn't swayed. Epitomises West hams transfer business if he goes there.

Iron.Al

1.) 15 Jun 2022 14:50:09
I just said the same on banter page lol. If toon get them we deserve everything we get for messing around. It's always a drama and a saga with our lot. I'm fairly sure we only have 18 squad players so we need to get a shift on or is moyes going to be happy with the 18 we have. It's a joke


2.) 15 Jun 2022 15:40:32
Huge failure by all involved. After all the haggling we may end up paying more if Newcastle improve on our offer.

Dreading this window under the David's. Was speaking to makem yesterday who said Moyes transfers at Sunderland were awful. Notably he had the chance to sign M'Vila for 5-6m who was a big hit with the fans but instead signed NDONG for 18m who was a notable flop.

We all know the opportunity we had the past couple of windows but ultimately the club have failed. We will lose rice and bowen next season, Villa toon wolves will all take over us.


3.) 15 Jun 2022 15:55:13
Unfortunately this window will be another let down, as always. And now we are having leaving discussions with issa Diop. In other words, to save money, they are going to convince him to stay. Its hiw our board and moyes work I'm afraid. I still don't understand why Newman was brought in?


4.) 15 Jun 2022 15:55:13

5.) 15 Jun 2022 16:09:23
I thought the discussions were with regards to Diop leaving. Might want to hold off abit on those now.

Maybe sullivan didn't fancy him as the marquee signing so dragged his heels in with negotiations.

If we lose out on our main target this window right at the last minute it's nothing short of a disgrace. Sadly can't see things getting any better under kretinsky.


6.) 15 Jun 2022 22:46:06
stop believing the media the delays was because he was away on international duties if his head has been turned he ain't for us pure n simple


7.) 17 Jun 2022 08:29:19
Newcastle aren’t trying to hijack anything - all rubbish.


 

 

11 Jun 2022 10:51:38
According to c&h Moyes has turned down an option of bidding 25m for Bissouma, instead wants JWP. Can't make it make sense?

Iron.Al

1.) 11 Jun 2022 13:36:10
Wouldn't surprise me that we go for jwp all summer and then the deal will collapse as always


2.) 11 Jun 2022 15:29:41
I’m sorry but if this true this is a joke, we’ve lost noble and yarmalenko, souchek is up in the air by all accounts, and Moyes wants to bring in another 30+ year old as a replacement, it’s ridiculous on so many levels, don’t get me wrong JWP is a very good player but it’s the age, we are going backwards. I hate every minute of transfer windows with this board and the way they go about business, and Moyes isn’t helping, I mean they are saying his number one target is Lingard…. Why he didn’t want to stay, he wanted to go to Newcastle, again great player but surely the number one target should be a striker for god sake. I’m bamboozled by it all. I personally think the Brighton midfielder would have been a steal at £25m but who knows, clearly not me. Moyes needs to start putting trust in youth, he did it with Rooney at Everton, we’ve got some great young prospects but if I was one of them I think I would be looking at the door aswell.


3.) 11 Jun 2022 16:01:42
Jwp is 27 and just signed a long contact really can't see him coming to us anyway, Hassenhutle adamant he's staying.

I can see us wasting time on this as per.

Lingard situation is a strange one he's had one good half a season in what the past what 3-4 years? But we are still looking at him despite the ridiculous wages to replace Benrahma at the same time we don't give Soucek a pay rise someone that grafts and puts his head in where it hurts for the team.


4.) 11 Jun 2022 16:07:34
Also regarding Bissouma perhaps his agent is trying to get things moving with other clubs by getting us to bid, Apparently arsenal and man u both looking at him.


5.) 11 Jun 2022 16:57:03
I stand corrected I thought I read that JWP was 30.


6.) 11 Jun 2022 17:46:51
I think every person on here is sick of hiw we do business. Seems lingard isn't interested in returning to us he would rather go on holiday to miami


7.) 11 Jun 2022 20:32:58
Hopefully this ends Moyes Lingard obsession and we look to younger targets on a modest wage with resale value.

The bloke thinks he's bigger than us apparently it's because we are not ambitious enough bet its more so that we aren't going to pay his silly wage demands. Blessing in disguise.


8.) 14 Jun 2022 09:24:05
I'm sorry but €50 million for a set piece taker In JWP is scandalous


9.) 14 Jun 2022 12:47:40
Bissouma is good, but trouble follows him.


 

 

27 May 2022 12:32:36
Yves Bissouma deleting photos of him in a Brighton shirt and putting the hammers sign in his Instagram bio. Probably nothing but it would be nice if secured this quietly in the background. Would be an upgrade on soucek if he was to leave.

2.) 02 Jun 2022 07:31:51
What a game Yarmelenko had for Ukraine last night! His goal was superb, the two touches to control then lob the Keeper were terrific, what a pity he didn’t perform like that for us?
Was a great Ukrainian performance from every player, obviously the countries awful situation must have given them a great incentive, they are all fighters like their nationals!
Love to see them win the competition! ?? ????⚒⚒⚒


3.) 03 Jun 2022 11:01:44
I think its a joke he always puts in a shift for ukraine
But for us never looked like he could be assed but took his wages
Hope wales smash the crap out of them


4.) 03 Jun 2022 17:35:37
Bit harsh Mo! Look at Pogba for France, same thing? I get where you’re coming from, it’s annoying, but when you’re not getting played your hardly going to say “don’t pay me” who’s fault he’s not playing? Hope they beat Wales, sorry Mo?⚒⚒⚒⚒


5.) 03 Jun 2022 20:25:16
Id support the home nation team over any other
And come on what did he show when he did get a chance
Against kidderminster he was a joke and there plenty more examples
I agree about pogba another waste of space only thing is he does have talent just seriously bad attitude


6.) 04 Jun 2022 08:30:53
Mo, do you support other London teams when they play, do the Other home nations support us when we we play?
I think mostly not! My sympathy is firmly with the Ukrainian nation not just Yarmelenko, not necessarily for Footballing reasons but for humanitarian reasons, it would give their suffering people a massive lift to see their nation excel in any way? ⚒⚒⚒⚒


7.) 04 Jun 2022 11:50:37
I will support any home nation team except tottenham unless playing us
And i don't believe in the war and don't believe the fake narrative being force on us in the media the conflict has been going on for over 8 years in the dondass
Its just like they don't report on yeman or what going on with the palastines
Sorry not sure this is the right place to go into this


8.) 04 Jun 2022 14:17:21
Agree non political site!⚒⚒⚒


9.) 05 Jun 2022 13:37:50
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.


 

 

24 May 2022 17:11:16
Reports suggesting we are looking likely on getting Nayef Aguerd, strange one for me looking at his stats his passing is top notch. But his defensive stats don't look great and looks abit light weight.

Liverpool put oxlaude chamberlain up for sale. He would make a nice replacement for noble however, villa are very interested (who aren't they after?)


4.) 25 May 2022 14:33:42
I'd avoid the Ox like the plague. Liverpool have disguised his injury tendencies by only playing him for 787 minutes this season. We'd be paying him £100 odd k a week to mostly lie on the treatment table. No thanks.


5.) 25 May 2022 15:22:24
Whats the betting we try and buy hlozek in 3 years when he is tearing up the German league


6.) 26 May 2022 20:40:49
Remember when Moyes said he wanted to create something similar to the red bull strategy of buying young talented players.

Holzek is on a plate for us and is one of the top youngsters in Europe and we are letting it pass by. Instead targeting lingard and ox on stupid high wages with no sell on value. Its a joke I'm starting to think he's taken us as far as he can.

{Ed002's Note - Hlozek has already moved elsewhere.}


7.) 27 May 2022 08:52:31
Didn't think it had been officially announce. Disgraceful Moyes out.

Pretty pathetic that how we look to be losing a promising young ST in sonny perkins. You'd think there would be some game time for him in preseason and europa conference or is Moyes going to completely knacker a small squad by Christmas.

Iron.Al

1.) 10 Jun 2022 06:59:27
Yeah I don't quite understand what MOYES has planned? I see we are beinbg linked witj Lingard AGAIN (this will drag on all summer again), Juan Mata and also a nasty rumour about Rashford .


2.) 10 Jun 2022 15:17:17
Lingard would be a great signing and if someone had offered us Rashford 2 years ago you’d have snapped their hand off. He is one of many disillusioned at Man U and would be a tremendous signing for us!


3.) 10 Jun 2022 20:34:49
No chance of Rashford. He is on £300k per week. We'll offer him £300 per week


4.) 11 Jun 2022 01:18:57
Rashford actually on £200k per week until 2023 ….he’ll struggle to get that money elsewhere given his form over the last 12-18 months. It’s not unknown for players to take salary cuts to get more game time not everybodys Gareth Bale!


5.) 11 Jun 2022 17:55:26
Rashford wants to stay at man utd and fight for his place (sound familiar?)


 

 

09 Jun 2022 19:16:59
I don't get all the reports that we will struggle to get our money back for benrahma and vlasic.

Not sure how you go from being worth 25m in the championship then performing in prem and europa then go down in value?! Something i'm missing here?

As for Vlasic wasn't a large amount of his transfer in installments which don't need to be paid due to the sanctions on Russian clubs? Maybe eds can clarify

Iron.Al

1.) 10 Jun 2022 07:04:12
Yep agreed Al. Maybe its the boards way of them being able to BLUFF us all again and when the window closes they can then point out how much money they had to allow for when selling them. AT tWhats really concerning is the way we do business. I know its all been said before, but, we are willing to let players go for an apparent cut price reducing the squad size, however, we take so long over business that we end up being outbid by other teams and therefore missing out on quality players. I'm also worried about the SPREAD BIDDING strategy which again won't work if clubs come along and pay the asking price


2.) 14 Jun 2022 09:11:52
I feel sorry for VLASIC who's been played out of position and very sparingly it's so difficult being given a game here and there knowing if you don't perform your bench warming till an injury from another forward minded player I think vlasic should be used as an out and out striker as over 15 yards he's very quick that's all you need if your playing on the last man so I do feel a bit I get they are paid a lot of money but come on give the lad a run of 10 or so games and see what he can do


 

 

02 Jun 2022 21:51:02
Hlozek to bayern leverkusen confirmed, apparently moyes didn't think he was right for the club doesn't make sense, Personally I think he dug his heels in because it wasn't his idea.

Reports over the last couple of weeks he's not going to spend big on a striker wants to use the money in different areas of the squad. Now if that meant we were going to go get bissouma, diaby, zinchenko, Aguerd and striker to help Antonio (should have been hlozek) I'd be more than happy however I should probably stop dreaming not at West ham under current regime including kretinsky.

Iron.Al

1.) 03 Jun 2022 07:00:41
Unfortunately I agree with you Al. Current rumours are worrying if moyes thinks we can cope with only Antonio. Personally I would like bayo or castellanos. He won't by wingers cause we have bowen and benrahma. Above all remember every club that doesn't strengthen struggles next season. To be honest i'm not hopeful of anything this windown and I got a feeling we will secure players we already have this window and nothing else.


2.) 04 Jun 2022 12:12:14
Regarding Castellanos I read that Moyes doesn't think he's proven himself at a high enough level. MLS is pretty low standard.

As for him not signing any wingers apparently he will listen to offers for Benrahma again a strange one statistically he was our 3rd best attacker and his stats are better than the likes of Cornet, Mavididi who we've been linked to. The only wingers we've been linked to that are better are Diaby and Terrier both would be quality signings however probably very unlikely to come to us, also with teams sniffing around Bowen and Lanzinis contract not far off we should be looking at another attacking outlet.

Antonio could be out main striker for another season but he needs to be rotated accordingly unfortunately last season we had no one really that could provide the same sort of out let Bowen could do well higher up the pitch but we then miss him as winger. Still think we will go for Broja him and mick as our 2 striker options I'd be more than happy with.


3.) 05 Jun 2022 19:53:56
Clearly moyes has an issue with benrahma? Strange one

3.) 25 May 2022 13:17:51
Ex just copying c&h - I still don’t think it is correct as we have no-one to fill that position.


4.) 25 May 2022 13:18:25
Villa will probably over take us. We've missed a lot of opportunities over the past couple of windows to make improvements and completely failed to the detriment of team and the fans.

I hope the hlozek news is rubbish. Surely we would be best placed to get that signing done.

If Moyes has said no and wants rid of Soucek and Benrahma he's gone mad.

Apparently we are putting a bid in for Ward prowse, for me this is another one of those that we go for who won't be interested in joining us but we waste time on it anyway.


5.) 25 May 2022 13:48:32
O’Shee, Bassey will be a terrific signing from what we saw of him against Eintracht in the Final, Gerrard obviously a massive influence on his decision as he would have known Bassey well from his time at Rangers!
I just hope we’re not going to get the left overs!⚒⚒⚒


6.) 25 May 2022 15:40:34

Phillips to villa now?


9.) 26 May 2022 00:50:18
Phillips to Villa is just speculation because of the agent he is signing with. Doubt Phillips is going anywhere. If we look at the table we finished 7th, Newcastle are going to move up and content for European spots, Villa are making all the right moves, finishing top 10 will even be difficult with no investment.

Broja is 20 and brings more to the game than just goals.

Keeping Rice this window is crucial and we certainly don't want Ross barkley in return, cash only however I fear Moyes wouldn't mind barkley with then being at Everton together.

Give me sport journalist tweeting, Rice to Chelsea is on and that's he excited at the prospect of joining Chelsea. Hope it's nonsense can't see him forcing a move however we would only have ourselves to blame by not showing enough ambition in previous windows that could have seen us in the champions league or minimum europa again.

Chelsea definitely won't be doing us any favours with Broja, Zouma dragged seemed like it was on and off throughout last summer.

Maehle can play both RB and LB as can johnson, doubt we could get Maehle though.

We've been linked to some good left backs, if we are spending in other areas a cheaper options could be tagliafico/pellegrini although it would be nice to see some proper investment in those Areas.
