Late today, there was Contact from Chelsea, do we want a deal on either Challobah or Malang Saar or both? Don't know if we are interested, can't say

For the right price I might be interested, but Malang Sarr apparently earns £100k a year. No idea what Chalobah is on, but unless they cost next to nothing and took a pay cut, I would let that opportunity pass us by.

Calaifori for Italy last night looked class. Ok, he scored an unfortunate own goal but that aside he was impressive. I know it’s unlikely but certainly worth an enquiry in my opinion.


2.) 22 Jun 2024 00:54:19
Chelsea would likely let Sarr leave for free to just get him off the books. Chalobah I believe is only on 40k~ roughly.

Calafiori would probably be north of £30m easily since Bologna have no need to sell.

In defence attention turns to Carter Vickers of Celtic, Vanderson of Monaco is liked, but too expensive

IMO. We have called the wrong option, in adding Arthur, to Soule. for a deal with Juve, they want to out many players, they have done 2 or possibly three to one with Villa, for Luiz fair enough, / then we should be shooting for HUIJSEN , the young cb, looks like a future star just 19, Moutinho has spotted this, and is in for Fener from Turkey, Arthur was a very decent player, but he has lost his way don't bother, this could be first mistake, we should leave him well alone, Juve want 40 m euro, for Soule but if they add HUIJSEN, might be worth it

Joyful Hammer

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen - €70M for both.}


1.) 17 Jun 2024 17:20:51
Being very hopeful money wise, BUT HUIJSEN is in my opinion a very good shout, and not Arthur, do you agree ED?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but West Ham has no interest.}


2.) 18 Jun 2024 08:43:14
It has all gone quiet on Nehuen Perez, Eds, does that mean we aren't interested anymore? Shame really as he is a decent defender and can play both centre back and right back

{Ed002's Note - Quite the opposite. Nehuen Perez (CB) Napoli and West Ham have declared an interest with Udinese. I expect West Ham to push.}


3.) 18 Jun 2024 12:44:38
Thanks Ed.

is there any truth in the AC Milan links to Emerson?

{Ed002's Note - Emerson (LB/LWB) Milan and Roma have both declared an interest in Emerson but he won't move to be cover which means Theo Hernandez would need to depart Milan - which he might. I suspect Roma's interest comes from the departure of Spinazzola.}

Another day, another name, Armand Laurentie, Sassaulo, fast winger, he's been watched before, So many names, being connected to WH

Will Salthouse . Has been Asked to move Cornet on, .whilst the agent, and mate of Sullivan is still pushing his players ., Kamada, hasn't yet renewed for Lazio, Palace are trying to persuade him, he's more than good, no doubt you all remember him, 60 k a week, no brainer for me, can't understand why we havnt tried, .At least looks like we are not messing about, trying to get players in, which is definitely a move in the right direction

Joyful Hammer

1.) 29 May 2024 13:47:23
And on the bright side, getting players out. ZOUMA and OGBONNA will depart, Aguerd in Bidding war. Good job we are hanging on to CRESSWELL and COUFAL (That was sarcasm)! WOrst full backs in the league. But, really positive news that he wants to do business early. Villa seem to be linked with every single player we look at, the latest of which is En Nesyri so he can warm the bench with DIABY, BAILAY etc


2.) 29 May 2024 16:47:16
Keep in mind that Emery and Loppy come from the same area in Spain, they are both Basques, they are not friends as such, but apparently quite matey, in a competitive way …so I am not suprised by the links


3.) 30 May 2024 12:03:51
And remember that it’s wise to do business before the Euros when everything could change.

To be honest, there are new names coming up virtually every day, ( a lot more ) than make hammers news, it's understandable in some ways because we CANNOT COMPETE, with people like Todd Boehly of Chelsea, who tomorrow will bid 44 m euro plus 6m in easy add ons for Omorodion, Steidten doing the work, big money pushing us aside, don't fall into that old tune, we have no money, it's nonsense, but at the same time we cannot compete, against, people like that, Fortunately they can't buy everybody, though they would if they could!

Joyful Hammer

1.) 19 Jun 2024 19:04:58
Maybe that leaves the door open for us to go for Jhon Duran. Big potential and decent scoring record in the prem, heard some question his attitude though


 

 

18 Jun 2024 16:03:32
Danny Ings, there has not been a concrete bid as yet, but fingers crossed, however it must be realised, that a big proportion of a proposed 5 m bid, will go back to Ings, as a payment for his final contract year, less in theory only what saints will pay him, so 3m a year from Southampton, deducted from 6 m from WH, balance to Ings equals 3 m less negotiation for upfront payment, there are no legalities here only terms to be negotiated, I would guess 1, 5 to 2 m to say goodbye to Danny Boy, leaving WH with nothing really, but he's off the books, he was a terrible choice in the first place

ARE we trying a bit too hard too penny pinch, Bruno is earning around, 2 m dollars equivalent per annum, in Brazil, around 30k a week, WH offer not much more , and uk tax (for him ) 45% in Brazil 28%, player has to change countries, uproot everything, he says no, thanks, doesn't feel valued, WH going to have To go much higher, maybe 45/50k, otherwise player stays put, many players in South America earn a lot less, than 2m dollars a year but Bruno isn't one of them

Joyful Hammer

1.) 31 May 2024 07:02:13
We offered a contract, he supposedly agreed everything verbally, but changed his mind afterwards. We can’t be held to ransom by players.

Move on to alternative options and sign players that aren’t just chasing a pound note… players that actually want to join the club and progress their career.


2.) 31 May 2024 12:27:27
Read today he has asked for 100k, also that he wasn't keen on having to uproot his family and pregnant wife.

Apparently if we don't get him we will turn our attention to Jacob Greaves, got the potential to be a future england International.


3.) 01 Jun 2024 20:49:45
Move on.

Yes indeed Henri Brandman has been called will he be needed, looks like it, if there's the tiniest hole in the FA's case, he will find it, Paqueta If guilty? was smart enough not to get directly involved himself, that could be the game changer, looks like there's no definitive proof he placed any bets, heresay counts for nothing.

Ivan Toney, made all bets himself, if indeed he was involved, he would have discarded, all proof including any phones used, just giving FA Daily phone, means less than nothing, even if he called Brazil 20 times a day, so what, it's his prerogative, Brandman the Rottweiler now on it.

if he's proven innocent, watch out for a reprisal court action against the FA, could cost them millions, they had better have a cast iron Case

WH, look to be acquiring the services of Henri Brandman, who has represented them before certainly. Against spurs and orient, re the aquiring Of the stadium, maybe he will represent the player, Against the FA. and then WH, against their insurance companies, should the player be banned etc, there's a long way to go on this, such a shame this had to happen, pre season , but the clubs got to move forward, according to what I understand no effect on incomings, as there was never a 100% certainty, , Paqueta would be sold to city anyway, So his transfer fee., would have been in the next line of funds going forward, now maybe not unfortunately

Apart from this PAQUETA Farce, its quite encouraging to see that we are already bringing players in such as BRUNO and now submitting a £22m bid for Ferdi Kadioglu who can play on either flank. We are also being heavily linked with MARCUS EDWARDS and WESLEY GASSOVA


2.) 24 May 2024 12:58:08
I’ve seen recent footage of both Edwards and Wesley. They are both exceptionally quick over the first few yards and have good feet. Wesley has a great eye for goal and Edwards has the ability to spot and weight a pass possessed by the best number 10s. Wesley is a large unit and Edwards is diminutive. Both have the necessary tools to play in various attacking positions, though, of the two, only Wesley could be a potential target man in the middle.

I would be happy if we got either, or both.

All that being said, we need a proven CF, but I’m sure that Loppy and Tim are doing the necessary.

Ed, payments spread over couple of seasons or length of contract in some cases, would that be better way of putting it ? Not many clubs are in the position, to pay full fee plus approx 35% on costs, up front , as I understand

Agreed, Downes, got a poor deal at WH, a lot depends. On Loppy’s view, how the play off final results, and how much saints would pay, if it was my own choice, as the player is now up to speed, plenty of games, under his belt, I would hold him, but if he really doesn’t want WH They have to let him go, if the money is right

Sorry long post! Yup, the reason Cresswell is staying on is two fold, @ he’s staying for one more year at his present wage, not half the wages originally offered to extend, and b……as we discussed it’s just impossible to get so many signings through the door in one window, so if some are kept on, they can be replaced, over the next two windows, this was always going to happen …….impossible to change playing squad in such a short period, feel sure that Antonio will be staying another year, Flynn downes may want to leave, , but under the circumstances will they let him .? The picture is emerging, there’s plenty. Of money, , but between now and August 17 th …….12 weeks no chance of getting 10 players in, and so many to get rid of, likelihood this was never going to happen, but 6 or so in would still be a feat, not many clubs have done this, and that’s the reason Will Salthouse, is being involved, he’s agent to so many players, he can persuade maybe a couple to switch to us, if they are fancied, making it easier to form a squad

Daisy, although I am not personally affected, by these changes, you are correct, these days I live in West London, but the central line makes easy connection, car not necessary, it’s used for away games, I’m often in the west-end, and have noticed that irregardless, of sold outsigns from WH there are often. Blocks of tickets available, at various places on sale to tourists who are paying ludicrous money to get them, not 1or 2 but tens, twenties and thirties, where are they coming from? Answer from the club itself, ! Make of that whet you will. These days it’s only about money, interest in supporters doesn’t exist only feigned, personally, , I would be glad to see the club change hands

His remit ended at 6 pm tonight, he only was in. Charge of the squad today, he begins clearing out tomorrow, , after this week he should be on holiday, and we await the physical presence of the new team, which should start in June, much background work has been going on let’s hope it bears fruit

Whilst your intentions are appreciated, by 99% of fans on here, media are behind, the timeline, Sloppy Loppy signed up on Friday, only Sullivan is yet to finalise, (which is expected Tuesday / Wednesday) and announced later …….all betting has been refused since, Friday noontime, which underpins this post, It doesn’t appear that one single supporter wants this man, BUT let’s hope we are wrong, on a positive note, after yesterday how much worse can it get .? Tim. Steidten wanted a five year plan, to make us a top six club, well he’s now got that brief over to you Tim, he will be able to work with Loppy and Noble, unlike Moyes there will be no problems there, they are already at it , could be some surprise signings to come, we have to hope for a turnaround
