Linked with robin Gosens at LB 9 goals, 11 assists for Atlanta would be amazed if we got him not sure where the money would come from.


1.) 10 Sep 2020 21:10:21
All the Ed’s have said Money is tight and that players have go out wheelchair lanzini etc GDS loam the money and act as guarantees. When we have bought early in past teams seem to only want players on loan taking advantage that we need them of the wage bill.

2.) 10 Sep 2020 21:26:10
I'd be proper made up if we were to sign Robin Gosens.

3.) 10 Sep 2020 21:43:24
I'm really pissed about WILSHIRE as he's apparently over his playing weight and looks slow and cumbersome in training I really bigged him up but he clearly is just picking up serious money and not giving nothing back but there in makes the point on SULLIVAN signing named has been that are severely croaked or well past their best before date there should be something clubs can do to stop players doing this like what WILSHIRE has down once bitten triple shy as CARROL and DYER have also done their part in conning WHUFC and not giving nothing or next to nothing back. COYI.

4.) 10 Sep 2020 23:05:00
Think when is not fit to play he gets 20k a instead of 70/ 80k.

5.) 11 Sep 2020 08:24:21
I think if West Ham suddenly have the money to buy Tarkowski AND then buy a £25-30 million left back, it’s probably because we have agreed to sell Declan Rice.

Otherwise I simply don’t see where the money is coming from.

6.) 11 Sep 2020 09:37:26
The owners take out loans which they guarantee so don’t be surprised if they do invest the drop is far more expensive scatter gun approach out and some excess players.

7.) 11 Sep 2020 21:08:39
That can't be true Ed surely that WILSHIRE only gets £20k a week if he's injured thanks Ed. COYI.



03 Sep 2020 21:27:29
Takehiro Tomiyasu - any truth in this link Ed's?


{Ed002's Note - As previously stated there has been interest in Tomiyasu but it looks very unlikely.}

Apparently Jeremy ngakia has rejected a new deal.


1.) 22 May 2020 13:14:37
I’ve seen this being reported as well.

Unfortunate as he’s a quality talent, but we don’t need any players that don’t want to play for us. If that’s his attitude, then thank him for his service and wish him the best of luck.

2.) 22 May 2020 13:34:48
It's a strange one maybe it's a ploy by his agent to try get a better deal or he's been tapped up.

I do remember talk of him being offered scholarship level wages.

Either way youd think his best option would be to stay here and fight for the RB spot it seems like both johnson and Frederick's are injury prone.

3.) 22 May 2020 13:59:21
Hes been at West Ham since he was 14 we don't want to keep him if he has decided to leave. But i do think he is a disgrace to leave WH now he has played in our 1st tean. The good news is we don't need people of his calibre and loyalty.

4.) 22 May 2020 21:07:55
I'm sick and tired of greedy little rubbishs that are led on by even greedier agents West Ham offered £5k a week that's a quarter of a million a year for a teenager or about the same as 8 corona virus Nurses get I know who I can do wothout

Jeremy just needs to remember Rees Oxford and quin a neither of which can get a first team start.

5.) 23 May 2020 08:09:50
Let’s be honest, Ngakia appears to be more than a decent talent, yet I understand why everyone appears he is greedy. If we have offered him £5k per week, surely a bonus system could be built in? A decent bonus system. Games played, goals, clean sheets, appearances accrued etc. This way everyone wins. The alternative is to call his bluff and say goodbye and sell him to someone up north. Then he’ll realise what he’s given up.

6.) 23 May 2020 08:12:48
With you all the way merceri👍👍.

7.) 24 May 2020 00:09:39
Just because the club wants to tie him down now doesn’t mean he has to. I don’t see that makes him greedy, or wanting away. If I was him and had a couple of first team games I would probably want to wait till season end and see what the clubs plans are for me. What if he signs and then we buy an international defender and he drops down to third choice and his chances of getting game time become non existent. Why rush for him?

8.) 31 May 2020 02:01:17
We are all guessing regarding wages we don't know the bottom to the top of a wage structure including bonuses, match appearances, but if it's about money at his age then we've got problems, I ain't going to guess at 18 years of age I'd be buzzing just being around the first team and playing also it's probably a greedy agent telling him we've got west ham in a corner and we will get what we want but SULLY although I don't like the way he sometimes makes our transfer targets public, but he ain't earn over £500 million from being a clown though sometimes acts like one anyway if it's about money he's played more 1st team games than OXFORD did but could end up sitting on the bench keeping it warm just like him we shall see if he's got west ham in his heart I do understand we all try and get as much money as possible but this is what's gone wrong in football agents and players demanding far to much money because they are on a big percentage but come on get your nut down for a couple of years then the money will take care of itself if he shines which I believe he has definitely got the ability but hey ho we shall see. COYI.



30 Jan 2020 18:04:12
Sander Berge has signed for Sheffield.

Eds any news on full backs?

Any truth that we are trying to hijack crystal palaces deal for Jarrod bowen?

We seemed to have sprung to life if reports are to be believed however i fear to little to late. Wasted to much time on gedson.


{Ed002's Note - I agree it is late - no preferred targets will be picked up but there is interest in Bowen. Not a great approach as you can imagine.}

1.) 31 Jan 2020 10:28:04
Cheers Ed.



11 Jan 2020 23:20:58
Gedson now likely to spurs. Think it was too good a deal not to be hijacked especially by levy very believable.


1.) 12 Jan 2020 10:30:02
Was pretty obvious, I belieave he has the same agent as Mourinho and we can't compete with spurs in transfer market, think we need to be smarter and more realistic with targets to be honest.

2.) 12 Jan 2020 16:37:37
It was looking promising maybe we were just used to drum up interest. Read somewhere multiple differnt agents are working on the deal one of them being mendes who as you point out is Mourinhos agent also. We need him more than spurs maybe as negotiations go on he will decide he's more likely to get game time with us.

3.) 12 Jan 2020 22:57:36
We should be able to compete with SPURS as we have three very wealthy owners. COYI.

4.) 12 Jan 2020 23:53:38
He is going to Spurs, no chance now.

5.) 13 Jan 2020 12:45:16
Never was a chance . The lad was being touted everywhere by his agent oh and then it turns out he has multiple agents all pulling in different directions. Sounds like a mess.

John Moss giving Arsenal a massive helping hand in that second half very poor!


1.) 21 Mar 2021 17:09:06
Not sure that’s true, the error on not allowing advantage when Lingard went through was an error but the rest I have little issue with. In fact when Diop cleared off the line shouldn’t it have been a penalty to Arsenal?

2.) 21 Mar 2021 17:24:53
Bad ref . SIMPLE.

3.) 22 Mar 2021 04:32:19
John moss is on par with the worst referees in the premier league and that's fact many managers have complained about decisions he has made, a lot of referees wait for the players reactions and then make their decisions very poor but I wouldn't be a ref as its very hard as players are very difficult to deal with.



21 Mar 2021 11:57:10
Still disappointed we went so defensive against Man u! only made it a game when we brought on lanzini and benarahma.

Hopefully we start with more attacking players today the defence is more than capable with rice and soucek infront of them.


1.) 21 Mar 2021 14:15:39
I would say that's probably our best starting liner up.

2.) 21 Mar 2021 16:58:20
Id agree fornals could be in there to though and Ogbonna is probably our best CB.



10 Feb 2021 09:21:52
Seems like all the posts regarding the man u game have gone.


{Ed033's Note - It looks like a database reset took place by the hosting company, which removed those posts

1.) 10 Feb 2021 09:22:36
Sums up our offensive performance really, didn’t even warrant anyone commenting haha.

2.) 10 Feb 2021 12:46:17
Very true TK :)

3.) 10 Feb 2021 14:37:17
Probably for the best! It was the same against Fulham tbf very toothless in attack maybe this small squad is running out of steam.

4.) 10 Feb 2021 14:47:15
If fornals continues to play as a winger that has defensive responsabilitys then we ain't going to see the best of him he's a creative midfielder the position he was bought for is similar to a no10 he has to be given a chance there but i don't think he will as lingard will play there.



06 Feb 2021 19:39:06
Boring game awful, red card at the end! We need to throw odubeko on instead of yarmo up top aswell.


1.) 07 Feb 2021 02:09:55
100% spot on Iron. AL You cannot be a premier league footballer at his age playing as a winger and be that pedestrian yarmolenko i mean its shocking and between him and noble its very close listen we ain't talking about pace i'm talking about running they are very slow and its the perfect chance to give Odubeko a run of sub appereances and the odd chance to start i understand he wasnt named in the squad tonight correct me if i'm wrong but noble yarmolenko and players of that ilk have to be made surplus to requirements if we are going to get too the next level.

2.) 07 Feb 2021 16:15:49
Just realised he wasn't in the squad. I was distracted the second half so I can't really comment on nobes and yarmolenkos performance but from that I did see yarmo didn't get much of a look in it would have been perfect to have thrown odubeko on when anontio had to come off.

Yarmo has served us well coming off the bench a few times but that was playing out wide. I do think fornals could play deeper not much of a tackler but I think he would be capable of taking the ball of the defenders and finding the pass into the forwards.



02 Feb 2021 19:24:07
Moises caicedo ended up at brighton for 4.5m could turn out to he a real bargain.

Really surprised we didn't go in for king at 5million. Yes high wages but we could have done a short term contract with an option that would have given him the chance to prove he's worth that.

Or Ogbonnas and Coufals!

That Napoli/ fornals story was run last jan I think its just a lazy repeat story.

Fornals is a steady player he doesn't give the ball away cheaply I like his decision making on when to try play a killer pass and when to come back and retain the ball. Guillem Balague said he was in the mold of a Barcelona type player and u can see that. Moyes has massively improved him off the ball though! He just need to work on his shooting which I'm sure he will be as he's getting lots of chances took his goal really well against Doncaster!

I think the Buy amount is already agreed? And in sure i remember it being a small amount like 1.5m.

Billy Gilmour would be a great replacement for Noble and could be very good cover for soucek and rice.

Don't think we would get an option to buy but a loan might pave the way for a future permanent transfer. He will get a lot more game time with us when we are in Europe next season.

I think the total amount of loans from an English club is 2 but can add 2 more from foreign clubs but I could be wrong.

I don't really get the lingard transfer we have lots of attacking midfielders already the loan fee is high and he's not match sharp he's barely played.

Striker should have been sorted based on Eds post below it doesn't sound to promising.

Hee chans record for Salzburg is decent but doesn't look like he's stepped up at other clubs. Very fast and works hard could be a useful addition.

No business ever with spurs plus they couldn't afford him.

No point in going to Arse either and they again would not pay the minimum price of 80m.

Rice should stay and become a west ham legend we have the makings of a really good team with the correct investment and youngsters like odubeko, baptiste, diallo, johnson coming through in the next couple seasons we could be a European regular. Noble to lift the FA cup retire and become director of football.

I understood the problem with snodgrass that it wasn't a Loan we infact released him for free to west brom? Could be wrong though?


{Ed002's Note - The issue was that the clubs agreed he would not play. Hence the fuss.}

And to think we were bidding 30 odd million for tarkowski! Not taking anything away from the CBs as they've been great but having Rice and Soucek in front of them I'm sure makes a massive difference.

Real tough run of games that however on the reverse fixtures against man u and arsenal we were robbed. If we get through those with that amount of points I'd be amazed and confident we would get Europe by seasons end barring a huge dip in form for the remainder of the season.
