BBC reporting Lingard rejects new contract. Sell Yarmo in January and divert wages?


1.) 08 Sep 2021 08:22:16
Lingard s contract ends in Summer 2022, so his financial worth to them is decreasing rapidly monthly? Unless he is playing hardball with ManU, Yarmo is an absolute drain on resources as you say, so. not to many would be unhappy to see him go even though financially we will take a massive loss, but less than on Anderson?
So surely a move to us would be upmost in his mind, even though he will have lots of offers? He was an instant hero with us, he knows he will be a guaranteed starter in the first team and his relationship with DM and staff would clinch a move to us imo?
If that was the case, the player to move over for him would be Benrahma I think, although he is now coming good, but DM is still not his biggest fan imo, Fornals and Bowen are much more DM type of players, so interesting to see if Lingard really intends to leave ManU? âš’âš’âš’âš’âš’.

2.) 08 Sep 2021 09:18:22
Lingard was great for us but trailed off towards the end off the last 5 games. We all agree Lingard is a great player and had a wonderful spell at WH
Now ill ask the question do we really need him? now that Benrahma starting to shine who would u drop to include Lingard. I say its a great time for Moyes he has 3 months to asses how Vlasic and Kral work out, it looks like Moyes and co. are starting to build a team we have waited so long for, yes we have had some great players in the last 20 years but never a team with so much potential as the players we have now.
Another centre forward would be nice and get rid of the remaining dross. perfect.

3.) 08 Sep 2021 10:11:30
Yes, even if Lingard makes contact with a view to coming back, Moyse has plenty of time to look at Vlasic before January.

I think the tide is turning re Lingard and the ball is more in our court than his.

Isn’t it good that the interesting times we are living in are positive ones?

4.) 08 Sep 2021 10:14:24
As a very expensive drain on resources, who rarely plays, we should move Yarmolenko on. Especially with the arrival of Vlasic.

5.) 09 Sep 2021 12:59:00
I think Jesse is doing the right thing. I think UTD were asking too much for him considering his age, we got Vlasic for the same price and he has 5 years more in him so a chance we could profit or break even, with Jesse it was not the case.
Jesse may not play as much as he wants at UTD this term, but he WILL have offers either in Jan or at end of contract. Whereas if he signs for UTD he is basicaly accepting backup/ rotation player status as they will only spend big on new arrivals over time that will get ahead of him.
We get time to assess others, and maybe Yarmo/ Lanzini go next summer and Jesse is the man. or maybe he has beter option elsewhere. I know he tailed off slightly last season, but he was still brilliant!

6.) 12 Sep 2021 22:03:58
I get it LINGARD wanted to stay and fight for his place at UTD but i ain't buying a bar of it this is what i think he did after being successful at ours he then said he would stay and fight for his place knowing that UTD would more than likely sign a player or 2 so he thought a bigger club than west ham would come in for him and that didn't happen now i don't think he set out to do it but he used us to help out a bigger move and i'm not saying that's wrong but basically what i'm saying is he has no interest in WEST HAM so why should we take him back because he has no other option call me oldschool but i wouldn't be unhappy not to see him in a west ham shirt again.

7.) 14 Sep 2021 04:58:23
Definitely Lingard tried to use the loan and our interest to get some better deal but why shouldn't he? If he comes back in January great, if not so be it too. I think Vlasic could be a good pickup, jury still out on Benhrama, his performance against the Saints was absolutely woeful and surprised it took DM so long to hook him.

8.) 15 Sep 2021 21:31:55
I said I'm not saying he was wrong doing what he did but I only want players in a west ham shirt who want to play for west ham and not their bank accounts which is what most players want all of the time let's get players in claret and blue who want to play for west ham you never hear soucek Or coufal mentioning money they are my kind of player.

9.) 15 Sep 2021 21:33:29
And in pre season everybody was lauding benrhama as the second coming he has one bad game and yes 2 bob how fical some fans are.

10.) 16 Sep 2021 04:18:39
I don't know too many who thought pre-season anything different about Benhrama. I think the jury is still out. He has some ability and flashes, he can play some good passes, but overall he doesn't appear to work hard enough for the team and tends to fade out of the game if things aren't going his way. Let's see how he goes but he needs to be more consistent and work hard, anyone I know says exactly that.

11.) 16 Sep 2021 08:19:54
I have never rated Benrahma to highly, best I can say about him is, he has contributed more at least than Haller/ Anderson/ Wilshere put together, so that’s not saying much. Yes he has some decent touches, but shouldn’t every player at least do something in a PL club shirt that contributes to a team.
He is definitely not a DM type of player, he needs to work harder and release the ball sooner instead of trying to impress, keep it simple in tight situations, but any player should do that automatically unless they have exceptional ability!
Looking forward as all of us for tonight’s first Euro game.

12.) 20 Sep 2021 02:29:46
In pre-season the world and his wife were saying what a player benrahma is now he's no good and if he ain't DM type of player why did we buy him and why don't he play KRAL if DM likes hard workers the games changed chelms its more the flair type of players that's why the big strapping No9 who puts himself about ain't about the best striker in the world LEWANDOSKI is a flair player who scores great goals look at UTD fernandes pogba ronaldo sancho people have to realise the game has changed so i think DM has done a decent job i just don't like his approach and tactics against bigger teams.

13.) 20 Sep 2021 23:58:08
Again Harrison, I don't think everyone was saying what a player Benrahma is, most people said he has ability but doesn't work back and can lose the ball a lot. Sometimes I think people have a view and then look for things that support that view, as the jury has always been out on him for the main.

14.) 24 Sep 2021 11:21:07
As regards attacking MF - Yarmo seems to have been signed as a kind of winger but in his early tenure; also seemed to play deep lying forward. If he is a striker he needs to start scoring goals otherwise we have enough AM players and should move him on ASAP.



08 Jun 2021 11:58:22
Caleta-Car for Lanzini for be reasonable trade. Move the salary and get a younger CB for balbyena replacement.


1.) 08 Jun 2021 12:45:39
Marseille wouldn't accept that unless money was involved.

It is also being suggested that Lanzini wants to move back to Argentina and Boca Juniors.

2.) 08 Jun 2021 15:04:09
River Plate note Boca Juniors. Apologies.

3.) 09 Jun 2021 07:00:49
i think its time for Lanzini to leave other than the goal at Spurs he is not the player he once was.
Sorry to say its time to go.

4.) 09 Jun 2021 07:43:54
Got to be honest Bideford, I agree.

He is very good tactically and I enjoy watching him play when he is on form, but I don't think he fits in as a player alongside Antonio up top, nor do I think he is all that effective out on the wings and I don't think he has the strength or defensive abilities to cover for Soucek or Rice.

If we can make some money back on him now. then we should. Send him on his way with a thank you though. He has been a good servant to the club and given his best.



29 Jan 2021 09:39:25
Announced benhrama signed permanently.




10 Dec 2020 19:43:14
Masuaku out indefinitely — knee op.


1.) 11 Dec 2020 18:09:27
Now how do you replace a quick left sided dribbler?

Benrahma time?



20 Oct 2020 10:32:29
Phil Jones in January anyone?


1.) 20 Oct 2020 11:31:41
There’s a lot games between now n Jan.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 11:37:46
Nope, to clumsy and erratic for me, if his on a free and willing to pay as you play but for every yellow card or foul conceded he gets fined, it would be a sensible move as well be in credit after each match.

3.) 21 Oct 2020 11:51:03
I’ve seen that we would have to pay £20m for him, no chance, we can do better than that.

4.) 21 Oct 2020 13:25:04
Left out of PL squad too -- clearly a reason he's been (r) ejected.

5.) 21 Oct 2020 19:15:41
Ed’s. given that premier league squads have now been submitted, does that mean free agents would need to wait until January before they could make a premier league appearance (if they were signed), or could they be added to the premier league squad if there is space?

{Ed002's Note - If there is space in the squad it is possible to add free agents at any time (assuming they were free agents at some point during the last transfer window.) So West Ham could sign and play Samir Nasri if they have space.}

6.) 21 Oct 2020 21:33:34
Thanks Ed.

Yeah I don’t think any West Ham fan would take Nasri back. Haha.

{Ed002's Note -Balotelli?}

7.) 22 Oct 2020 06:27:39
What had you heard Ed? Haha.

8.) 22 Oct 2020 09:37:01
Any decent strikers Ed on as free agents?, thinking about it that question basically contradicts itself lol.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think West Ham are looking but there are folks like Mario Mandzukic, Mario Balotelli, Alexandre Pato and Daniel Sturridge who are looking for clubs.}

Haller 4 goals in CL. We clearly didn’t play him correctly.




01 Sep 2021 12:39:13
Tougher ask with Europa away game on the Thursday. Could see us ceding the EFL/ carabao cup game by using youngsters.
Gotta beat Southampton, got to show against Zagreb, and need a win/ draw in PL against Man Utd for statement of intent.




01 Sep 2021 12:32:46
Now to beat Man Utd, twice…. COYI!


1.) 01 Sep 2021 15:46:06
Having seen Man Utd performance against Southampton and Wolves, they weren’t all that were they? Wolves were very unlucky.
I do wish we played Man Utd last week before they signed Ronaldo. We all know that everyone’s first goal comes or drought ends against our lot. 😂😂
Let hope we’re keep Ronaldo in the pocket and he struggles to adapt to the pace of EPL for a few weeks.

Dunno about you lot by I was sick to death of hearing all about Ronaldo and Mbappe yesterday like they are the only two players worth rambling on about. I mean, it’s not like Mbappe is even associated with English football.



31 Aug 2021 17:51:10
Getting greedy now, bamba and a left back and I think we are in great shape. âš’âš’âš’.

22 Aug 2021 11:59:34
Hypothetical: if we got caleta-car and Lingard would you wait until January for a striker?


1.) 22 Aug 2021 12:20:41
No as we still wouldn't have cover for antonio, we will be playing 2 games a week his injury record is not the best, plus the whole reason we didn't have any cover last January was that it was too difficult to get a striker moyes wanted In that window, so I'd no faith they would get anyone in then either.

2.) 22 Aug 2021 14:51:11
Lingard not even on the bench today at Southampton🤔🤔⚒⚒⚒⚒.

{Ed001's Note - he was according to the TV here.}

3.) 22 Aug 2021 15:55:09
Yeah sorry Ed, didn’t see him on the list. 😮⚒⚒.

{Ed001's Note - no worries.}

4.) 23 Aug 2021 08:54:49
Are MU giving him this early few minutes playing time to keep him on their books, or to pretend they want him to stay to drive the price up?

Yes, he was great for us when he arrived in Jan, but we have plenty of MA cover with Lanzini and Yarmo. Bowen and Benrahma are improving too and Fornals is now playing consistently well.

Antonio is our only out and out striker and has a dodgy injury record. With the number of games we’ve got this year, plus reports that Antonio will be playing international matches, WE MUST GET A STRIKER THIS WINDOW.

{Ed077's Note - Or Rashford, Cavani, Elanga, Diallo, etc.. arent available right now....

5.) 23 Aug 2021 09:48:05
Hope he enjoyed coming on with 5 minutes of regular time to play.

I wouldn’t want to see Bowen go, JL and Bowen cover striker somewhat. I’d rather lose Yarmo for a bit of cash against a CB.

Apparently they want £17M and now Sours are in. Can we not for once pay a relatively (cheap) asking price and get someone through the door instead of losing them to rivals? I appreciate we need to do a few loans because of overall finances but if we can't stump up £17M after the sales of Haller et al then finances are truly woeful.

Assume we are offloading Randolph then?
Bit surprised I thought the Pereira/ Johnstone double swoop had legs particularly if we sent Randolph the opposite way.

Everyone is just antsy Chelmsford, we’ve been without a 2nd striker for 8 months now even before Europe was on the horizon. Agreed we can’t afford top drawer but hard to see likes of Daka going to a league rival. £34M+ is too rich for us on Abraham as well.
On the positive side Benrahma looks to be coming good.
I would be happy with a CB and striker. Holding on to Coventry is the midfield backup.

Flying in for 1st home game vs Leicester, also booked today for December Norwich game.
I manage 4-5 games a season from Northern Ireland (originally New Zealand) . Bringing 4 year old grandson to Leicester match (got him a season ticket last year) . Fully indoctrinated, wears WHUFC strip to Sunday football at local club. What’s the email again to get his photo in the programme?

Fiorentina only want £16M now for Milenkovic. We bid £23M last window. can we night secure a bargain before Leicester do?
Did we miss Kral too?
Sima Kral Mlkenkovic and we all stop moaning…
Youthful, building even we don’t barnstorm. But better than picking over dregs and liabilities like Cahill.
