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.}



16 Oct 2020 17:28:35
Three deal sheets in with FA so two hours extensions.




29 Sep 2020 13:43:10
Sky Sports saying we are bidding for Vladmir Coufal from Slavia Prague.


{Ed002's Note - Slavia Prague have indeed said that West Ham have returned - it is a surprise and he is well down the list for West Ham - but will be cheap and he is available.

Additionally, Nikola Maksimovic (CB) Everton, West Ham and Inter Milan have all spoken to Napoli about Maksimovic.}

1.) 29 Sep 2020 14:29:42
I have to say I’m surprised we are in for Vladimir Coufal. Having seen his stats his average at best. His ratings are mid 6.5 out of 10 in Czech league.
I’m pretty sure Ben Johnson would be comparable to that. Just seems a lot of money for an average player.

{Ed002's Note - I agree.}

2.) 29 Sep 2020 14:57:43
I know nothing of Coufal, but do we seriously believe we will get any more than an average at best player, with our financial implications? But after Sunday’s performance do we need any more than cover? ⚒⚒⚒.

3.) 29 Sep 2020 15:14:22
Just seen that a loan bid for Coufal has been rejected?

{Ed002's Note - Given he is valued at very little I imagine they were surprised witha loan offer.}

4.) 29 Sep 2020 15:21:47
Ed, is he valued at £4m, if so why don’t they just buy him if they want him?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it would be any more Stevie. The lesson to be learned is don't buy players simply for the sake of it.}

5.) 29 Sep 2020 15:43:32
Soucek will, I’m sure, have an opinion on how good he might, or might not be.

6.) 29 Sep 2020 19:22:43
I’m with Ed on this one. Why buy for the sake of buying. Based upon his player ratings, it makes more sense to loan him and see how he shapes than buy him outright, no matter how low the price. If he’s say £4m and we pay him £20,000 a week which isn’t much. On a 4 year contract that’s still £8m wasted if he languishes in the reserves.

7.) 29 Sep 2020 19:37:30
I would seen they have seen enough videos of him and scouted him this loan move maybe due to fredericks limping of.

8.) 29 Sep 2020 20:36:15
As always we've left it too late and are now desperate.

9.) 29 Sep 2020 20:53:44
Mac. You need to realise that it’s a strange old time with clubs facing financial difficulty.
I don’t think it’s a case of leaving it too late. I think it’s a case if trying to bring in first choice players on a limited budget and having to look down the bottom of the list now.
What you will probably find is that instead of buying players like Tarkowski who we can’t afford and putting them straight into the side, the stance has probably changed and we will make do with what we have and start them and use some 2nd or 3rd choices as back up players.
This I was always going to be the plan if we couldn’t get players we want. However, if we can’t get the 1st choice players who improve the side then it’s better to loan other players until we top up the coffers, make do with what we have and buy the 1st choice players in next window.
Makes perfect business sense to me mate.

10.) 29 Sep 2020 22:00:10
Honest I never realised.

11.) 29 Sep 2020 22:05:44
Even if just 4 mill that is 4 mill less we have to spend on someone else. I can see why they might have tried the loan for cover but can’t see why we would buy.

12.) 30 Sep 2020 13:35:41
Then agents fee signing on fee.

13.) 01 Oct 2020 20:58:12
who had heard of SOUCEK before we signed him and for what we paid for him he's the best buy for the money in this window. COYI.

If we locked in Dawson for season, nabbed Hee Chan as cover for Antonio, lingard as cover in mid and firmed up Benhrama then I’d be happy enough even if it cost us Balbuena and perhaps yarmo.
But we are leaving it all last minute again so a nerve wracking 4 days left.


1.) 28 Jan 2021 08:50:21
I might sound like a broken record but Hwang will never be a 20 goal a year striker. He had a good season in Austria (Ajeti anyone? ) and moved to Germany where he was touted as a replacement for Warner.

It has not worked out and they want rid of him. For Korea he struggles even in Asian games to find the net.

I will support him if we end up picking him up and will hope he proves me wrong but having seen a lot of his international games I think he is not the answer unless all we are looking for is someone as a filler if Antonio gets injured and he is going to be on the bench mostly.

2.) 28 Jan 2021 10:10:02
Sdl, all I can say mate is, if anybody’s a consistent 20 goal
a season prospect, we ain’t going to get him😂🤣⚒⚒⚒.



25 Jan 2021 06:24:13
Now it’s Man Utd in 5th round it gets interesting. They play Everton in PL on 8th Feb then us in FA Cup on 10th Feb. Cannot bring it earlier, or later as both play again on 13th. Their Monday game is set for TV so would be surprised if it got moved/ postponed. OGS will have to decide priorities.

Fab injured in warm up Chelmsford
Fredericks out with C.V.


1.) 01 Jan 2021 18:05:25
Thanks Kib, not so good injured in warm up? Sounds like we are doing well👍👍Got it on Radio live, cheers mate👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 01 Jan 2021 18:11:28
Watching it, we are okay so far. So what is the rule with the virus - City get a rest we have to play, seems inconsistent.

3.) 01 Jan 2021 18:13:17
Nice balance playing ok. Haller is the problem. He can't hold the ball up, can't pass and not much good to be honest.

4.) 01 Jan 2021 18:45:30
This side has a great look to it. Haller us clearly the issue wish we has josh. king.

5.) 01 Jan 2021 19:02:48
Mac, we have known that for far to long mate? ⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 01 Jan 2021 19:34:20
Huge difference when Antonio came on. Solid defensively and suddenly a fast counter attack.
Randolph safe #2 GK too. Remember Goalberto last season?
Yeah the Haller-ometer has tipped back to minus 2 now (probably costs you wins)

Haller, yarmo and maybe Anderson sold,
Buy two players?

7.) 01 Jan 2021 19:39:02
What a different team when Antonio came on. Lovely performance against one of our bogey teams.

8.) 01 Jan 2021 19:49:08
Ogbonna like a rock today brilliant game for him, the whole team put a shift in, I much prefer Bowen over yarmalenko.
Oh sorry nearly everyone put a shift, haller has to go I’m 100% team Chelmsford, I fail to see how he could have played number 10 before coming to us, I just can’t see it at all so what’s gone wrong, has he just come for the money or what, he can’t pass, he can’t hold a ball up, he never wins a header and 80% of the time doesn’t even jump, a number 10 sees more than one pass when he was deeper even he couldn’t pass a ball off then. But in all seriousness who would take him on, we all know we aren't going to get £45m for him so what’s the answer, I would take a punt on king, or recall silva back and give him a go if we are able to do that that is.
All in all 3 points so that I will take.



01 Jan 2021 10:06:55
Happy New Year to you and yours. Special appreciation to the Ed’s for running this place. Always good reads, laughs and insight to be found here. Stay safe all and may you be blessed with 3points every game! COYI.


{Ed047's Note - thanks from all of us Kib and happy new year to all you hammers! ⚒⚒⚒



21 Dec 2020 09:30:50
January 25 man squad.
Reid or Dawson?


1.) 21 Dec 2020 10:19:43
Reid is faster and more dynamic, Dawson has better positional sense.

Outstanding run down Ed002 -- thank you.
Patson Daka absent from the list -- did I miss something on him?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest:

Patson Daka (S) the player signed a new contract at RBS last season when he was assured of the chance to replace Haaland - a chance he has taken very well under Jesse Marsch. RBL could be interested in taking him in the future but the timing is not right now as RBS have no intention of selling. He is a player who would depart for AFCON which puts many clubs off. His agent and his assistant (Freddie Kanoute) have offered him around without the permission of RBS - this will be driven by the far higher wages offered elsewhere and certainly Lomdon-based clubs have been approached including Crystal Palace who have previously made an offer for him and Spurs. I suspect West Ham and Arsenal will also have been approached.

Crazy bid for that guy. If we truly had that cash you'd get both Dia and Daka for that money. Brutal front line pace then. Sick of these airy fairy bids for ransomers. Stump up (reasonable) money for relatively experience youthful fast frontmen. Job done. Need to sting Liverpool back pairing at the end of the month with Rashford-esque type runs.

Even if we traded Ukrainians? Sell Yarmo for Zinco?

Also we play Chelsea in 4days time. Convenient mind games to unsettle our stalwart.

Agreed Markro. If it’s not written down it never happened. In any case it’ll be the last time GSB sell to SA after he opened his mouth. Assuming a fine is due or does the signing get cancelled and we get Snoddy back?

If you could beat Liverpool once would you all prefer the 31 Jan in PL or 5th round FA Cup? Obviously both would be brilliant but what’s your choice if we nabbed one game?

4th round draw handy
5th round need to catch a tired team with a great WHUFC performance.
