Fabricio Romano is saying the Paqueta deal has been signed.

Club announcement shortly.


1.) 29 Aug 2022 18:50:45
Just seen that too
Please just anounce it

2.) 29 Aug 2022 21:03:11
It’s announced



12 Jul 2022 21:33:09
Any Ed tell me if Alfredo Pedulla (Italian journalist) is reliable?

He’s reporting WH have had a €40m plus €7m add ons bid accepted for Scamacca.

Can this possibly be true, or is it hogwash?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot tell you about any accepted off but the player and PSG want a deal and Sassoulo want to push the price up.}

1.) 13 Jul 2022 08:43:34
Thank you

I see there’s comedy talk of us offering Soucek to the Spuds.


1.) 02 Jun 2022 12:27:31
It wouldn't surprise me if it happened to be honest, nothing would surprise me!

2.) 03 Jun 2022 06:55:44
Some rumours are laughable

3.) 04 Jun 2022 11:37:26
He had a good game against switzerland

4.) 14 Jun 2022 22:30:09
They have agreed a deal for BISSOUMA subject to medical apparently.



09 Apr 2022 11:38:39
Svanberg, anyone?


1.) 09 Apr 2022 13:30:44
I don't know this gent; will go and investigate the net.

2.) 09 Apr 2022 13:43:04
CM moderate goalscoring ability too ; aged just 23

3.) 09 Apr 2022 14:32:48
Again to me its all about if moyes likes him and will give him time on the pitch
The kid look decent right age but would moyes play him?
Ive been pretty concered with the way moyes refuses to bring the younger kids on
Flex and a few others need to be given a chance

4.) 10 Apr 2022 02:12:58
I think it really comes down to what the plan is and whether there is really going to be REAL money to spend or whether it is still bargain basement time. If they are serious about spending 100 Million such as the unconfirmed Nunez, Phillips, Raphinha bids would suggest then we need to bring in a serious striker, centre back, competition in central midfield as priorities. Players for the future can come afterwards in my opinion. But if it is same old same old we need some competition for Antonio and a centre back. All this assumes we sign Areola as we won’t have two keepers of sufficient standard otherwise. We keep saying each window is important but I think this one will really determine where we are over the next few seasons as Rice, Soucek and Bowen won’t stay long unless we invest this summer.

5.) 11 Apr 2022 05:53:58
I think Sdl has hit the nail on the head could not agree more

6.) 11 Apr 2022 15:32:56
Yes hence my rare silence too on this issue now

7.) 12 Apr 2022 07:59:45
I think Moyes will let Areola go unfortunately. Reports suggest he will cost £11m to buy. Therefore, I believe he’ll go for Johnstone from WBA and Tarkowski from Burnley. both free transfers. This makes sense as it bulks the squad up without spending on transfer fees.

8.) 12 Apr 2022 09:52:13
I read somewhere areola on crazy wages so never really seen us signing him
We going to need to spend wisely so a few free will be needed as we have quite a few leaving and the squad far to small as it is
Priority has to be striker and there can be no excuses
Schick would be a good call for me and shouldn't break the bank getting him

9.) 12 Apr 2022 21:06:31
Yea his wages at PSG are likely going to be a problem think I mentioned that a bit earlier in the season. We need a good second keeper though as Fab is going to get injuries unfortunately.

10.) 15 Apr 2022 10:04:32
Hlozek is still a serious consideration for me.

Very young, very talented and scores frequently.

11.) 16 Apr 2022 12:48:34
My money is on Rainchek of Moskow lol but just not yet.



30 Nov 2021 11:13:32

Our record with signing players from the Swiss league isn’t great.


1.) 30 Nov 2021 17:31:01
Bloke would be great signing

2.) 30 Nov 2021 21:58:23
I read Leeds were after him too, and possibly Barca?

Antonio, or Scamacca?

I’d love to see both start against Everton.


1.) 17 Sep 2022 18:21:59
I cannot see no reason whatsoever why DM won’t, apart from DM being DM!⚒⚒⚒⚒

2.) 18 Sep 2022 13:35:47
Well what a surprise, Antonio starting and no Scammaca, we know what will happen, Ant will be subbed then Scamacca bought on in the 2nd half! Why won’t he play 2 up front?
WTF is it with DM, is he frightened to play attacking Football being an ex defender? If we lose today we need to start rethinking about DM in the Managers position, I wondered if his thoughts on tactics was anything to do with Stuart Pearce leaving although there could obviously have been many reasons, but I would imagine he would be a very stubborn man to work with imo? Maybe he’s gone a full circle in what he will achieve with us?⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

3.) 18 Sep 2022 13:46:53
Just seen the starting 11 and DM has gone with his favourite players ANTONIO and SOUCEK and CRESSWELL if I was SCAMMACCA or DOWNES I'd be a little upset I ain't starting and Emerson but DM just loves ANTONIO he will probably score a brace but I don't care, astonished how will these players gel in a team when all they get is EUROPA playing time

4.) 18 Sep 2022 14:48:37
This is dreadful. 7 corners and no variation we are really bad and until he sorts out his starting 11 and has some consistency it won't improve. Coufal and soucek are terrible and paqueta wants forever on the ball

5.) 18 Sep 2022 16:24:39
I'm sorry but MOYES is tactically inept CORNET made a difference DOWNES has a solid game against FCSB and doesn't get a look in here's one for everybody had we signed ONANA I guarentee he wouldn't be starting in our 1st team yet lampard sticks him straight in from the off IMO we have to get rid of MOYES now before its too late,we are losing the game and he takes one player who can change a game in PAQUETA I wasn't at the game today I couldn't make it so didn't see the 1st half but if I were SCAMACCA,DOWNES,EMERSON,CORNET then I'd be knocking down MOYES door and asking why spend all that money and he ain't using the players I truly would sack Moyes people will say look at what he done last year but he's taken us as far as he's capable now so change it now.

6.) 18 Sep 2022 17:54:16
I'd get drunk every night cause they know they won't get played. Lots of things have got to change. Players need to be dropped until they find the hunger they had last season starting with fabianski. Too old, makes too many mistakes. Cresswell and soucek, useless and can't defend. Too many sideways and backwards passes, no tempo, no pace to attacks, all in all dreadful



01 Sep 2022 10:13:45
I’ll be happy if nothing else happens transfer wise today. It’s been a terrific window.

I have just read though, that as a Dawson exit to Wolves is on the cards, we might be looking to do some sort of swap deal including Dendoncker.


1.) 01 Sep 2022 11:23:43
Carlete-Car has just arrived in London. Make of that what you will.

2.) 01 Sep 2022 11:32:13

3.) 01 Sep 2022 17:30:36
Could be BENDAREK now off to VILLA what a u-turn.

4.) 01 Sep 2022 19:05:30
he ain't going to get much playing time in front of zouma aguerd when fit kherler ogbonna sooner keep daws 4 6 months



31 Aug 2022 22:46:09
Pleased over all with the performance tonight. We were far more aggressive and busy.
Antonio was up for it and worked his socks off, Soucek had his best game this season and Rice is getting back to his game.
Good debut from Paqueta considering he has even trained with the team yet.


1.) 01 Sep 2022 07:50:33

2.) 01 Sep 2022 19:12:07
Markro i wasnt convinced with our preseason the balance of the teams looked wrong very few 1st teamers mixed with a lot of youngters maybe 1st teamers needed more time of

3.) 01 Sep 2022 21:18:59
Could be, BKK.

Let’s hope things are looking up.

Sneaking feeling that Paqueta will provide plenty of assists for Scamacca as the season progresses.



24 Aug 2022 21:48:47
Reports are that Lyon want £8.5m beyond what we have bid.

In modern football, that’s peanuts.

Downes was £12m.

Get it done, .


1.) 24 Aug 2022 22:32:00
All well and good but then getting Paqueta to actually want to leave Lyon then to come to West Ham.a few hurdles to any deal there. I think given the time they should put their best deal forward, see where it lands, and if a no move on quickly.

2.) 25 Aug 2022 07:24:36
Agree with you Sdl. Not enought ime left in the window to be messing about. It would be even nicer if they could get it done and dusted tomorrow and he may be able to play v Villa

3.) 25 Aug 2022 08:24:23
He wouldn't play against Villa you can hear it now, great lad loads of ability but not played much, we will have to gradually introduce him into the team. Same as he is doing with Scamacca, I bet if he scores a hat trick tonight Antonio will sill start v Villa. The squad from last year look totally unfit and devoid of ideas or the will to make runs or move into space. The new players should all given a chance to show they actually want to play not sat on the bench watching dross.

4.) 25 Aug 2022 10:12:31
Spurs and Forest now rumoured to be looking to get him - hope we don’t lose out again after doing the work. Again there needs to be a good hard look at how we go about transfers. It isn’t at a Premier League standard.

5.) 25 Aug 2022 22:21:17
Some sources suggesting our second bid was rejected, we shall see soon no doubt.



24 Aug 2022 18:42:27
Rare as hens’ teeth for Moyse to talk about a current bid (Paqueta). I really hope this means he thinks it’s in the bag.


1.) 24 Aug 2022 22:40:02
Or he was told to talk about it so the fans can hear the board tried but it didn't work out?

Just read that Lanzini has been told he can leave, either on loan, or permanently. Whilst I’m not that surprised (if it’s true) bearing in mind we’ve spent so much this window, squad size is what let us down last year.

Great post, Sdl.

I think we’ve got the back line covered, whatever the formation. Szalai is a decent player, but why bring him in unless we’re moving someone else on (Dawson?)

Vanaken is class: creative and scores goals. He would be a great addition, but is already 30. Brugge are pushing for too much considering his shelf life, so, sadly, chances are that one won’t happen

I’ve seen some reporting today about Barcelona being interested in Fornals. That would certainly recoup a decent dollop of our spending so far.

If Lanzini doesn’t move on now, he’ll get less and less playing time. That ACL injury was a disaster for his career. He simply hasn’t been the Jewel since.

It would be good to see Scamacca and Antonio on the pitch at the same time.

Expensive at West Ham nowadays - what price two pints of lager and a Paqueta…?

Rice always leaves a huge hole when he goes off. We lacked his calm, purposeful power once he was on the bench.

If we go down by one point, there will be talk of suing the Premier League no doubt.

We are so much better off than at the start of the window.

I’m really looking forward to the Paqueta/Scamacca link up.

I was generally encouraged by the game. Far more positives than negatives.

We certainly deserved at least a draw and had several chances to win it.

Chelsea have also had a poor start to the season and are there for the taking.
