Apparently GSB already planning to use the free transfer market because that's worked out so well in the past hasn't it.


1.) 28 May 2021 10:06:46
if we sign one or two free agents to plump up the squad numbers a little then that would be useful, we don't have the depth of squad for Europa League on a Thursday and then Premier League on the Sunday. However, I would be hugely disappointed if we signed free agents and didn't invest money in players too.

It is also worth mentioning there are one or two free agents that probably would be useful / good additions and are realistic targets (excluding Messi, Donnarumma, Depay, Wijnaldum for example because they're not realistic) .

Thomas Vaclik - GK - Czech no. 1 goalkeeper, has played for Sevilla for a few years now, has won the Europa League with them too. he would be a decent signing in goal

Nikola Maksimovic - CB - international player with a fairly decent pedigree

Ryan Bertrand - LB - but would be a useful addition and decent competition at left back

John Lundstram - cm - in my opinion he has been made a bit of a scapegoat this year for Sheffield United, but again, as a squad player to sit on the bench and fill in, not a bad option

Josh King - f - to have as a squad player behind Antonio and any marquee signing we make up top, a decent option

Cristian Benteke - f - to have as a squad player behind Antonio and any marquee signing we make up top, a decent option


2.) 28 May 2021 16:20:20
We've been linked to other "free transfers" Giroud, Don Peretz and possibly Ntcham if celtic terminate his contract.

Usually they are being let go for a reason or a number of reasons high wages, age, attitude.

I think there can be frees that would be smart business to bulk out the squad just hope they do their due diligence and don't get players that simply aren't good enough and/ or disrupt the squad.

Sullivan needs to dig deep for me now would be the perfect time to buy players with some being sold cheaper due to loss of revenue.

3.) 30 May 2021 01:56:56
Benteke would be a good signing. He causes problems for defences.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 16:13:04
Donnarumma free transfer would be lovely haha, dreams can come true.



10 Sep 2020 18:01:53
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.}



22 May 2020 10:18:51
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.

Reported that Patson Daka is going to Leicester and that might give us a chance to sign odsonne Edoaurd.

Looks quality for Celtic and seems to have been a Moyes target for a while. Get it done.


1.) 21 Jun 2021 17:22:42
See were being linked with jordon larsson
Not seen much of him but his bloody quick.



25 May 2021 18:18:48
Ntcham no! kral yes!


1.) 25 May 2021 19:54:46
Ntcham wouldn't be a bad buy.

2.) 25 May 2021 22:29:28
Reported that Celtic are trying to terminate his contract early and his performances at marsielle were rubbish. Questions on his attitude looks like a sulky French man stear clear we need to keep this good squad morale going.

3.) 26 May 2021 16:43:03
Personally I wouldn’t sign anyone from Mickey Mouse Scottish league.
I would be interested to get Rangers and Celtic in to the championship as they would eventually bring a lot of competition to the premier league.



21 Mar 2021 17:00:55
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.

Wouldn't sell rice for less than a 100m anyway and I wouldn't be overly confident we would spend the money wisely either. I hope this summer we don't waste loads of time trying to get players who don't really want to come. I think 50 million plus money from sales of the likes of Yarmo, Anderson, lanzini should give us enough to create a squad good enough to compete in the prem but Europe and prem is a stretch on that budget.

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 had plenty concerns he has no real credentials as a manager. Took a decent boro side to relegation candidates for a couple seasons before ultimately getting them relegated.

He looks to have stifled Rice he does not sit 5 yards infornt of the CBs for west ham. He continues to play sterling who has had an awful season and done nothing other than score against Croatia.

These news articles will be saying he's made a u-turn on his decision next week they make it up as they go along.

Hopefully we can see some genuine moves soon, the euros will probably be slowing things down a bit.

He deserved a better ending to his west ham career hopefully he can play infront of a packed London stadium next season.

Claret&hugh website seem to be playing the amount we have to spend down again. Aswell as saying we are not looking at Kral or any defensive mid but looking to get lingard, 1 maybe 2 strikers and a couple of defenders.

The idea of going into this season without adequate cover for Rice and soucek with the extra games is ridiculous.

Reports we are looking at young Swansea cb Ben Cabango.
