Anything in the Nasri link?


{Ed002's Note - There would be a certain amount of humour I suppose.}

I really hope not - why would we want a washed up 31 year old who’s well past his best, and has just come back from an 18 month drug ban.

We get enough bad press at it is. this would be so toxic to the dressing room and club as a whole, sending out the wrong message.

Unfortunately that's what we do give £70,000 a week to somebody that either never plays or occasionally plays i. e EVRA ARBELOA we are WHUFC . COYI.

Any info on the Rice situation Mike? Don't put too much stock on what I read in the papers.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 14:22:24
WH. Are in fact trying to tie him to a long term deal 5/ 6 years. But they are going to have to pay realistic. Money IRONMIKE.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 15:06:01
We won't keep him for 12k if that's true, championship players get more. I know he's a kid, but some kids at other teams are on a lot more. Would 20k be realistic?

3.) 25 Sep 2018 15:25:39
Around 30 k would be realistic for me he’s got to be a future captain surely IRONMIKE.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 16:43:45
I. thought 30k myself and went with 20k as a conservative estimate as I didn't think many would agree with 30k. haha. He's a first team starter so should be paid as such, maybe somewhere in between 20 and 30 with a good incentive payment plan, appearances, international caps etc and the usual win bonus, clean sheet etc etc.

5.) 26 Sep 2018 08:23:35
Personally, I think all footballers are paid too much. £12k a week is still £624k a year which is INCREDIBLY good money, in fact he would earn the UK average ANNUAL wage in 16 days.

However, I get the fact that in today' market, £12k is a bit of an insult when you compare his salary to others in the squad.

In a dream world, I'd put all footballers on a basic ANNUAL wage of say £100k and then heavily boost their earnings with performance related bonuses. It'll never happen, but still. It would certainly put the fire in the belly of all footballers and make then determined to win.

6.) 26 Sep 2018 09:01:26
In todays Dream Fantasy World of players wages is £30k enough? a week for such a prospect and as Mike said maybe future captain

30k for 5 year contract works out at £7.8m ( yes I know its a dream world for us all but that the reality of football), playing devils advocate if he continues to improve at the rate he is going by the end of next season ( I think his contract is up) he will be worth in excess of £30m absolute minimum especially if he decides to play for England and Southgate does love a young player.

If he breaks into the England squad his stock goes up and would imagine he could command a £3m signing on fee at least on a free transfer, and there after would effect command at least 70k a week for a 5 year contract as he would still be only 21.

So within a 1.5 years of letting his contract run down he could be at a top club earning £18.2 m over the contract with a nice little £3m in as a sweetener. that's treble what it would be worth at Westham.

Obviously i'm being very very cynical thinking the player and he's agent would think like this but if he continues to shine and get media attention that would be reality, my bet he is going to be a top top player, his still learning but his learning quickly.

Give him 50k a week 6 year contract with incentives along the way of his contract as if if he continues to shine he gets a incrimint each season.

I know some will shoot me down as its a risk giving a young player 50k and 6 years and if he bombs out we lose out, BUT I would take the gamble as a no brainer, the longer this drags on the longer other scouts start to look and maybe turn his head.

7.) 26 Sep 2018 11:36:30
I agreed with you Warrington - Did anybody else hear Jamie Carragher on talk sport supporting Rice's decision to decline the 12k contract?

Now I bloody hate Carragher but I absolutely agree with him - Home grown players who come through the academy seem to be punished for doing so. If rice was a foreign player who had been signed last season, with the performances he put in last and this season - he'd be on 50k+ easily. Diop is 2 years older than him, unproven in the prem, but I bet he's on 50-60k.

Get him tied down to a 50k contract - he's fit, he's keen, bags of ability and I think he will be our future captain, I have absolutely no doubt about it. Letting him go would be an absolute calamity. D&S Get it down.

8.) 27 Sep 2018 04:31:57
I think 20k plus 10k appearance money is a much better structure than a straight 30k.



12 Jul 2018 00:49:58
What is the score with Antonio? Does he want to leave? Been a real asset before last season, I know he was called unfit and overweight. has he took the huff.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 08:15:16
Still a beast but hasn't been quite right since his injury really you would expect atleast 20 to 25 mill but i have a feeling he may go for less than that just to get him off the books.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 09:18:44
Because of the way he plays high speed high impact could turn into another sturidge.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 09:23:18
Always loved his passion and go at ‘em attitude, his brute strength and speed, but he lacks the first touch to fit into an MP team. I can’t see how he would get regular playing time, so it’s time for him to move on.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 10:26:53
My question is if Yarmolenko and (fingers crossed) Anderson are both on the right side, who would be on the left? Holland? This all means that Antonio would be surplus unfortunately.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 10:36:23
Said it before, really don’t want to see Antonio go, please don’t give him away to Palace like we did Tomkins! But maybe his is one of the higher value players that can help balance the books although prefer to see him stay!

6.) 12 Jul 2018 12:17:09
Hi Dan they both can't play on the right it will be either or.

7.) 12 Jul 2018 13:16:10
Thanks Nuts, i wonder if there is a way both can be played together? Maybe one as an AMF, possibly releasing Masuaku as a winger finally. I guess we need to know what Hernandez plans are now.

Swansea play Stoke and Southampton at home in their last two games. they could have a big say in us staying up. I think we can beat Leicester away. that would probably make us safe. can't see the other two getting more than 37 points maximum.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 14:04:58
1 more point and we will be safe if not safe already.



20 Jul 2017 18:00:50
Am I right in saying Wilshere is an Iron's fan. Anyway, I'd take a risk at the right price, his luck with injuries has to change, give him a one year contract with a guaranteed second year based on appearances. if he manages around half our games then it activates a second year.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 01:39:13
Whenever I see Cullen play he looked like he could be a good player. He also comes across well in his interviews. The Bradford fans were raving about him last year and your always willing for him to make the step up especially as his one of our own. From what I've heard his been really impressive in Austria. Has anyone seen him playing out there in pre season? and if so is he ready to make the step up to the Premier League or is another loan likely?

2.) 21 Jul 2017 09:23:25
Cullen and Holland look decent players and in both friendlies they have been brilliant yesterday against Fulham Holland and lanzini run the show and Cullen just looked so comfortable in the middle in the ball I really hope both of these get a chance next season they could be some player one other who looks so comfortable is Burke I would have no problems in having him start if we had any knocks at the back during the season all three deserve that chance on the bench and show us fans what talent we produce.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 10:28:10
We have some great youth players. i'd rather them go prove it out on loan say in the championship or even a promoted PL team where they play week in week out. see if they have got it and then bring them back and integrate them into the first team.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 12:14:02
Cullen ain't good enough in my opinion see him at Bradford and he didn't float my boat.

He plays for Celtic, not Hamilton like Hendrie who was a prospect. He's wanted by Arsenal and Man Utd, so won't be coming to us.

Get Dzeko in with Gomez, no point in having two strikers wanting to be the top boy, one will just sulk and fek off, Dzeko gives Gomez the chance to settle and find his feet, some strikers hit the ground running, but most need to adapt as the game is so fast here.

What is the truth behind this, some saying the Chinese pulled the plug, some saying we did. we can't have another Payet situation, I think we should agree around about the 40 mil Mark and get rid before it / he affects the rest of the squad.

I'd give Shanghai and Arnie until the 25th to agree a deal or not. We can't mess around at the tail end of the window. Hernandez looks gone
, so let's get Dzeko anyway, we need reinforcements up front, Perez may go too.

I'll be happy if we're not flirting around the bottom three and can enjoy our football this season. I think 12th and above will achieve that.

Raver. you do some talking for a supporter of a team with a new stadium and an empty trophy cabinet,
