Bologna, contact WH, are we still interested in Calafiori, as Arsenal, have walked ( or maybe only temporarily) the Gunners want the price agreed dropped down a lot ? If WH want to spend a few quid, ? They did like this player? Could be seen as opportunity , don't know if our interest is still there

And so we will switch to another target and it starts all over again.


2.) 19 Jul 2024 20:05:22
My feeling is he will go to a big Italian club. Can’t see him having any interest in coming to us

The problem for WH is simple, we need too many players in, it can be done, but it's not looking likely, let's be honest. Six was ambitious, eight doesn't look like it now, and this problem will get worse, at the end of this season, when six players reach the end of their contracts, Cresswell, Antonio Coufal, Fabianski Zouma Ings, so that will be a big job for another day, turnaround of 14 players in one season, incredible ask, Steidten and Loppy think they can do it, and achieve a high finish in the league, we can only say let's see it

Ngolo Kante, yes he can still play at the top level, and despite his age, would probably do well for us, his wages in Saudi are just Staggering, 1:6 million A WEEK!, he has four Bugattis , and three Lamborghinis, this acceptance to come to WH can only be, he wants to show how well he can still perform as a matter perhaps of personal pride, whet we pay him would be a pittance, , anyway, he certainly doesn't need the money, very interesting, But a two year deal if he wants it got to be ok, he's the exception to the rule or so it seems

{Ed001's Note - I believe that all the cars were given to him as gifts, due to it being well known that he was still driving his old mini from when he made his breakthrough in France. Throughout his time at Leicester and Chelsea, he never bothered to buy a new car, just stuck with his tatty old mini. The Sauds often give hugely expensive gifts to the players under them.}

Think some are being taken in, by all this Wan bissake, ridiculous wage rubbish, 100% accurate fact his contracted wage with Man Utd is almost exactly 70 k a week, this does not include any club add ons which are unknown, but in any case, cannot add more than 10% to this figure, so he's within WH structure ( for reasons unknown his contract may be written with US dollars, as the payable currency ) however current exchange rates point to the above being correct

Time to move on from tobido me thinks. O'brien would be better option


 

 

18 Jul 2024 10:07:53
LINDSTROM, WH are in the running here, because it seems Everton the favourites, now switch to loan with option, whilst WH made outright bid, , it's unclear, what other teams are involved here, but there are a few others, although, it was reported that a 30 m euro bid was made by us, I am told it's not that high, but WH want to negotiate, // JWP on this looks like we have walked away, the player really wanted to come with wage agreed but Saints are still looking for £20 m plus ! With one season on his contract WH, could collect him on a free, with signing on fee next season, should he not be sold, // Saints are in belief that Spurs will pay up to 25m for him, let's see?

Forget, all this Calvin Lewin, talk he's likely Newcastle, , and silly money on top of it OK Callum Wilson, is being pushed by Will Salthouse, Yes we should have bought him from Bournemouth, years ago, that's for sure, he's now 32, can he still do a job, yes, I think so, , for a couple of years maybe, but not as main striker CMON, WH get real, But to replace Danny Ings that's great, his wages at Magpies 40 k, a week so for WH no problem, small transfer fee only. Don't pay NO big numbers, dead money, no sell on fee, We are still chasing Miranda, and so many others, it's time to start getting signings in

Joyful

Yeah agreed Joyful before other teams start kicking their summer into gear


 

 

12 Jun 2024 17:46:34
Alex Garcia to WH was always a thin chance, as soon as Leverkusen matched WH wages, with champions league football to offer, thin chance ended, nothing to do with too expensive that's just nonsense, So yet another new player, Soulé, enters the fray, not a great chance with this one either and it's 25 m plus, so logically how can Garcia be too expensive and Soulé isn't, just journalists making things up

Joyful

1.) 12 Jun 2024 19:50:41
Yeah exactly considering our entire transfer budget us £100m plus any player sales. I'm more concerned with this season ticket fiasco?


2.) 12 Jun 2024 20:11:19
Soulé has been playing 2nd tier football in Italy, though from what I’ve seen, he has a great left foot, (we seem to be blessed with a few of those already) excellent dribbling skills and really good vision to split defences. Good pace off the mark too.

The PL is a different ballgame, though, but if Loppy is confident he could get the best out of him, who knows?

Whilst it’s great to be interested in these talented young wingers (Guilherme, Wesley and now Soulé) we all know we need to sort out a decent striker and do something about our defence.

I wonder if Loppy was tasked with a top half finish and a positive goal difference for the first year of his tenure.


3.) 13 Jun 2024 06:52:59
Defnitely Mmpr and we are crying out for FULL BACKs of a decent quality. Emerson and Coufal potentially leaving for GALATASARY and ROMA respectively, leaves us CRESSWELL (god help us) and Johnson (who could also be gone. I'm not sure why after all these years MOYES refused to invest in decent full backs but he was quick to go for CB's?


4.) 16 Jun 2024 14:00:51
Daisy. I’m with you on the Cresswell issue. I’ve been hoping and praying for two years to get shot of him.
I wasn’t particularly fussed when I heard Johnson was leaving either. Neither showed enough over the last season or two.
The squad needs a proper facelift. Zouma out, Creswell out, Johnson out and Aguerd out. I’d keep both JWP and Soucek. JWP struggled playing as a defensive midfielder as it really isn’t his bag.
Cornet never got a proper chance in my opinion.
The only players I’d hang onto are Bowen, Soucek. JWP, kudus, Alvarez Mavrapanos and Areola.

Clever Villa, no club interested in paying 70 m for Douglas Luis, so they are swapping with Juventus, getting Illing junior, Weston makennie and 20m in cash Juventus want to give a third player maybe, instead of cash, we should perhaps try swaps with Athletico if Aguerd., wants to go there, or indeed anywhere else, saves messing about, might suit. All parties involved, , despite all the stories, saying othewise, , and although there has been enquiries and contact, regarding Miranda, Greaves and Kilman, as of tonight, there's nothing happened with any of these players, tomorrow who knows? But nothing at all as of tonight

Joyful

1.) 12 Jun 2024 06:55:28
The window isn’t open yet and jLO doesn’t start until the 1st of July as he would be the best person to get the ball moving in regards to Killman.


2.) 12 Jun 2024 07:05:00
Hey Joyful, and when you think about it the VILLA Approach makes a lot of sense. So we virtually signed Guiillerme and Foderingham (don;t be too surprised if this goes belly up) and we are now going back for WESLEY Gassova, interesting. Next up is That Jota Silva. Lopetegui is pushing hard for ALEIX GARCIA which will transform our midfield with him and ALVRAEZ. Could mean the end for SOUCEK and JWP.

Zouma on his way to anyone who will actually bid as is Aguerd and OGBONNA has gone. Also EMERSON may well be on his way and Interest from TURKEY in Coufal, so major defensive rebuild on the cards. WHilst we are looking at VITAO and Nehuén Pérez amongst others.

Rumours also circling we are after Kostic again.

And of course we are linked with every striker under the sun. I still think he will go get EN NESYRI


3.) 12 Jun 2024 14:43:56
Forget ALEIX Garcia on his way to Leverkusen


 

 

05 Jun 2024 16:21:39
Omorodion, looks to be a gamble, he looks the part, but ? If we go for him we have to trust in Steidtens judgement full stop / whilst, Mubama looks the part and whilst there might be those on this site, that rate him, sorry I don't, WH idea might be contract extension, send him out on loan, to championship see what happens, but he's no first team player at present, Ben Johnson, is a decent Squad player, pulls up no trees, but is useful it seems he has cooled down his wage demands apparently, so yes I would keep him on, Meanwhile , not JOTA SILVA, but the other winger JOTA, we where after in January, has become available from Saudi, and a loan situation is possible, new names popping up daily

Joyful

1.) 05 Jun 2024 20:37:56
I'm fearing this scatter gun approach will ensue again


2.) 05 Jun 2024 23:38:35
Not going to judge Mubama based on Moyes ball. Only have to look at how well Haller and Scamacca have done since leaving us. Would be a shame to lose him.

Can confirm 24 m euro bid for Kante, HONESTLY, looking over the whole set up at the moment, it seems we have hit the buffers, we all know 5 more players are needed, only Reiss Nelson is near, , and not that near! Yes we are limited on funds, but have got the money, and we are getting close to the famous line in Hi Ho silver lining…. ( We’re everywhere and nowhere baby, ) prior to Dagenham game, Loppy wanted five in, so we are now well behind. Schedule, yes there’s time, but it’s not working out as planned that’s certain

This source has been about 70% not bad, certainly as good as most proper ITK s, so we must cut him a little slack if he’s wrong on these, we must all acknowledge the fact that a lot more happens behind the scenes than gets known or printed by anybody, he tells me things get agreed, then left for various circumstances, so this is just a sample of what is happening behind closed doors, we must all understand this, it’s a rolling situation

AL! As you can see if WH subsidise 30 k a week for Ings, then it’s costing 1:5 m over the season, might as well give him 2.5 m, take the 6 m offered, job done WH get a few quid, he’s gone,

Hi Al, Subsidy on wages from WH was 30 k maximum, Saints want to pay him 50 k so 80k total he’s on 120k at WH, there’s the issue, WH won’t give him 70k a week to play at Southampton, this deal has nothing to do with Downes, Anywayhope your right if he stays on, but from what I’ve seen, he’s as useful as a chocolate teapot, and he’s 32 next week, that’s my view Al

Yes, a small suprise, but not a shock, he’s been mentioned several times before, // /we are going. For youth if possible, at that age. Can be developed into a star // he’s apparently been promised first starter as CF, which is a big carrot, Chelsea only said he would get his chances, that’s the difference, let’s hope Steidten is right, we are moving on which is promising

Hi Daisy, it’s the West Ham new way of keeping expectations down, stops fans expecting too much, avoids possible failures, and keeps other clubs prices down ( they hope ) it’s baseline 90 m plus expected sales of at least three adding at least 50. M Making 140 m, plus percentage of profits made for last season, less some above average expenses, imo it can run to. 175./190 m, lots of time to go patience is going to be the key

Agreed, apart from maybe one big signing, there won’t be sufficient funds, to cover all the positions, unless it’s done carefully, which is exactly how it’s shaping up and, to get us into a competitive side won’t be easy, we must go with Tim and Loppy, we also don’t seem to be interested in free agents at present, with names popping up daily like Memphis Depay ( big wages ) and Iheanacho , and interest has been dropped on El Nesyri as well, who I thought was a shoe in, it’s very entertaining, to say the least, we must all see how things roll out

The base of 90 m is correct, as I had worked out myself, it wasn’t difficult sales from Kehrer onward must be added, Aguerd looks definite, to go / Benharama , if Lyon can get round their transfer ban will leave, (Or he returns to squad, ) looks like we can run to 140 m without any pressure, WH have to soak up the 35% approx uplift on all transfers and. Various fees involved, NEXTSUMMER, or before, we will need similar funds, as end of contracts come for Zouma Ings, Antonio, Fabianski, and Cresswell, that’s if Zouma Ings and Cornet. Are still with us, they are going to be hard to shift beforehand, you know their individual stories and high wages, it’s going to be a big job, for Steidten for sure, but he had great success at Leverkusen, now it’s the turn of West Ham! To make the changes
