Reports are saying Rice has agreed a 5 year deal with Chelsea!


1.) 26 Sep 2020 14:28:06
Seen the reports but if the board haven’t given permission to speak to them blatant tap up and unless they meet the amount 80 million cash up front then no deal sell him in the summer.

2.) 26 Sep 2020 14:55:51
We will see if he’s in the squad tomorrow?

3.) 26 Sep 2020 18:02:10
Some mysterious injury might keep him. out lol.



06 Sep 2020 23:07:06
Burnley have said we need to double our £27m bid to buy Tarkowski. They say he's better than AKE (which he is in my opinion) and he went for £41m.




03 Sep 2020 19:48:12
If, and it's a big if. We do stay away from injuries we may do ok. Moyse has done well since his return and we do look fitter, faster and stronger. on top of being more organised.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 23:41:15
Our left flank will be our undoing no matter how much fitter and stronger the side looks.

2.) 04 Sep 2020 05:29:37
your right Billy. Neither cresswell or matsuaku can defend our left side.

3.) 05 Sep 2020 20:01:41
Can I add right flank to my above post please?



02 Sep 2020 14:22:28
Diagarna to WBA for £18m. Appears cheap to me. Shame they didn't want Anderson instead!


1.) 02 Sep 2020 23:14:59
No one likes to see a young prospect leave but considering he hasn't really kicked a ball in anger in the PL if and its a big if the money is used to sign a couple of full backs I don't think it would be the worst trade off to be honest.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 12:24:06
trouble is red what kind of fullback can u get with the initial £12m?

3.) 03 Sep 2020 16:54:34
Matt cash just went for 14 million he's decent, Antoine Robinson went for 3 million!

4.) 05 Sep 2020 12:44:39
Warrington fullback?



30 Aug 2020 19:39:16
Reports that Fenerbahche have bid for Lanzini and West Ham have stuck Haller up for sale. It's on one of the media outlets.


1.) 31 Aug 2020 13:37:04
I read the Turkish side want to loan Lanzini and he has no interest. Not sure where you saw Haller for sale? Again saw that Hertha Berlin made a loan offer which would be ridiculous if true.

Great performance last night. I think 3 at the back suits us, specifically Cresswell. Interestingly, I felt Rice was our weakest player, he still did ok, but I felt the other 10 put a proper shift in. Like many of you, I am unsure about the qualities of Fornals, although one quality he does have is he doesn't hide during a game.

He is non-stop all the time, and this is the sort of player we need. Over the years we've had too many players who hide during a game, Anderson being an expensive one, yet the lad Fornals doesn't stop.

I think Moyes is slowly but surely building a team, a little like John Lyall used to do. Hopefully it'll end in the same result with a couple of finals!?




27 Sep 2020 11:59:12
Rice wants to go supposedly. We need players. Why don't we take Loftus Cheek, Barkley and Abraham's in return. I understand we need defenders, but these 3 would improve our side incredibly. Chelsea might do it to remove them from pay structure. Only an idea, but if they're are desperate for Rice and we need good players, it works for both clubs.

Getting these 3 would allow us to lose Anderson and Haller. Might have to be initial loans for £3-5m, but with guarantee to buy at end of season.



1.) 27 Sep 2020 12:06:40
You be better off supporting Chelsea.

{Ed047's Note - why if he wants to improve your side would he be better off supporting Chelsea?

2.) 27 Sep 2020 12:13:24
Loftus-Cheek would've been my first choice of any Chelsea players in a makeweight deal. Until I looked in to his injury a bit deeper and it seems his Achilles rupture was really bad and the chances are he'll never recover fully. I like RLC but there's a not insignificant risk he'll end up another Dyer, Carroll or Wilshire.

{Ed002's Note - The problem injury is actually his back.}

3.) 27 Sep 2020 12:30:50
His chronic back problem will never go away but he's been able to manage it without the need for surgery thus far. Agreed, it's another reason not to sign him but it's his Achilles that is now the more insidious of the two injuries.

4.) 27 Sep 2020 12:49:36
I’m still not sure about all of this rice rumour. I like many do not want him to leave, but at the end of the day if the isn’t happy what can you do, you can only offer him so much to try get him to stay. As for the three player swap deal, I don’t know what rice is on wage wise. But u can be sure if we took the three or any three (not Rudiger for the love of god, anyone who thinks he can play best start to watch a new sport, he is in a word crap) I digress, but if we took three in a swap deal surely the wage scenario would be a nightmare. I know people will be saying if we get any players the wage bill will go up, but let’s face it they will be on high wages at Chelsea, and they will want the same if not more because at the end of the day players get greedy. If he does go then we need to get as much money as possible from the, if the right player is available then so be it. But as SDL said in another post unless we see it happen then just keep the tabloids crap at a distance. Either way, COYI, let’s have a performance tonight and make a statement wether rice plays or not that screw the press, let’s get on with the job at present.

{Ed002's Note - There is no option to swap Rice for Abraham, Barkley and Loftus Cheek.}

5.) 27 Sep 2020 13:35:22
We will know later if it’s a Rumour or not with Rice, as he will not be in the team today if it’s in motion! Looking forward to the team news! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 27 Sep 2020 13:38:25
Whitby I’m not against him moving on but with the way this window the timing is wrong Barkley is on 1/ 120k a week yes he would improve the team but we would have then shift someone from midfield which we are struggling to do.

7.) 27 Sep 2020 13:47:47
Do you have anymore information Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no offer made by Chelsea at this time.}

8.) 27 Sep 2020 15:25:40
Cheers Ed, so far the voice of reason and grounding down of these evil rumours. For now at least 👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - West Ham are expecting on.}

9.) 27 Sep 2020 13:15:48
Ed 047 all he has posted has been swap for this Chelsea player swap for that Chelsea player wants to swap one of our best players and don’t drop we ain’t got no money on me Ed because gds take out loans.

{Ed047's Note - ahh ok fella didn’t know that and I’m saying nowt about money🤣

10.) 27 Sep 2020 17:55:28
I don’t want sell rice at this stage of the season Ed being what the transfer window is a difficult one.

{Ed002's Note - Lare sales if the player needs replacing are a problem - but funds have been an issue.}

11.) 27 Sep 2020 22:59:45
I truly cannot for the life of me understand why people think that getting shot of HALLER would improve our side, i will argue till i'm CLARET and BLUE in the face that HALLER is top draw footballer of that i'm sure and why do we want BARKLAY and another WILSHIRE in LOFTUS-CHEEK ill tell you what ill take KANTE and money thanks a direct replacement for RICE otherwise tell chelsea we ain't interested take it or leave it. COYI.

12.) 28 Sep 2020 09:19:35
He is 144k a week mate.



24 Sep 2020 18:50:05
Rice is pushing for a move and we want £80m. Chelsea supposedly want rid of Alonso, Rudiger, Barkley, Abraham's, Loftus Cheek. Why don't we take 3 of the 5? Which ever 3 we get would improve our team. Rudiger would be the obvious choice with 2 of the others.
Chelsea may go for the deal.


1.) 24 Sep 2020 19:09:30
Rudiger, Abraham’s and Barkley, would prefer Rudiger and a couple of full backs though.?

2.) 24 Sep 2020 19:25:59
Well if it’s true then let him go, he’s done nowt so far since we started, fans will be very disappointed. But Rudiger, no no no no no, he is one of the worst defenders I've watched, to me he’s not even a footballer, he is poor, very poor. It’s a no from me on home like. I’d love rice to stay but if it’s true and he’s pushing then left rid don’t let it drag out.

3.) 24 Sep 2020 20:12:35
I heard that they want to sell Rudiger to partly finance the Rice deal. I wouldn’t want Rudiger at all. He’s mentally not cut out to be a defender. If you recall, when we played them and yarmalenko scored, it was Rudiger who let him get onto his ONLY shooting foot (his left foot) and score. Fundamental mistakes like that are the reasons Chelsea want rid.
I questioned Rudigers football intelligence as soon as it happened. And I’m not a professional footballer.
Sorry lads, out of all the players you mentioned from Chelsea I would only consider Abraham’s at a push.
Let Chelsea stump up the cash like they did for the other players they have just spent a fortune on. If they can’t, let them go sniffing around elsewhere.
We could do a lot better with £80m in cash than taking their outcasts. £80m is a good centre half and a right back and a left back.

4.) 24 Sep 2020 20:16:34
Whitby. COMPLETELY agree. He’s a donkey and not a footballer. He will be a liability.
Where by the way is Winston Reid?

5.) 24 Sep 2020 20:19:39
berkley, Abrahams and Loftus cheek.

6.) 24 Sep 2020 21:57:52
I can see him joining them will be a big miss, but honestly we are never going to get no more than one player from them as a swap + cash,
Could you imagine the wages they would want if we took a few,

Only player I would take would be Abraham, but in my opinion it’s not what we need, Good player though.

7.) 25 Sep 2020 08:47:19
No chelsea swaps - as COYI64 said, let them stump up the cash. Mr Abramovich isn't short of money, so let him dig deep into his pockets. Cash is King.

I'd absolutely hate to see Rice leave and would prefer to hold onto him, but £80m in cash would essentially allow Moyes to land every single one of his top transfer targets.

8.) 25 Sep 2020 11:16:18
The £80m valuation is pie in the sky. Rice is a very talented footballer with plenty of great years ahead, but in the present economic climate and with Chelsea already having forked our bucketloads, I can’t see them paying that.

If he has decided he wants to leave, I’m surprised none of the European giants has expressed an interest.

I do rate both Abraham and L-C, though.

9.) 25 Sep 2020 14:51:47
Markro. I understand that your saying about £80m being pie in the sky. However considering what they paid for the other players they bought And then, already knowIng that there is a PREMIUM associated with buying British players. The fact that I think they desperately need a quality DM, I would say that £80m isn’t such a pie in the sky number. Think what Chelsea paid for that numpty goalkeeper of theirs who makes one mistake after another.
Rice is a regular England International now who performs consistently. Would you say he’s worth less than Harry McGuire? I wouldn’t.
For once we should stick to our guns and play hardball on price.



19 Sep 2020 23:24:52
I know many of you like Haller. Personally, I do not think he is good enough. He had a 'chance' in the 92nd minute, but instead of going to meet the ball - he waited allowing Ceballos to clear. The lad has no urgency and is not sharp enough. We need to sell him quickly whilst he has some value.

On a separate issue, we played well this evening. Bowen needs to get the ball in the box quicker, he needs to learn from Yamalenko.


1.) 20 Sep 2020 08:26:13
Markwhu, Haller is a Contentious issue amongst s posters, but I agree with you! Other posters even thought we should go for his ex colleague to team up with him in the hope it will revive him, I cannot think of a more silly reason to buy a player, what happens if either gets injured, is the other then not good enough to play without the other?
It’s only an opinion to those that disagree!
I thought we deserved more than we got last night, but thought we could have had Haller, Anderson, Yarmolenko playing from the start, even just for the fact it would give Haller and Anderson a chance to redeem themselves! ⚒⚒.



19 Sep 2020 20:45:04
I'd have Yamalenko on for Bowen, Anderson for Masuaku, Haller for Fornals at Half Time. Arsenal defence is there for the taking.


1.) 19 Sep 2020 21:02:21
Mark, agree was just thinking before Ant scored after half time Yarmelenko/ Anderson/ Haller, on, interesting we could pull off a surprise here👍👍⚒⚒👍.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 22:01:53
What a f——/ utterly stupid time to bring on Anderson and Haller, 88 and 89 mins, that’s effing ridiculous, all for having faith in DM but hard to fathom that decision🤭😲.

I’m a Barkley fan. He’s an England international as well. Barkley and £50m would have sorted it.

I say let him go. His value ‘may’ reduce if we struggle, plus Chelsea could offer us some players plus cash for him should we want. Let’s be honest, most Chelsea players would improve our 11. If we could get 2 of them plus £20-30m we cannot lose. Specifically as we hold the trump card. Rice.
Loftus Cheek, Barkley, Abrahams, Alonso, Rudiger would improve our team.

He’s a good solid centre back, but at £35m I’m not sure he’s worth that money, although City paid £41m for Ake and he is better than him imo.

Why don’t we look at Smalling £10m and Keane £20-25m. It would shore our defence.

I'd move on. What about going for Keane and Smalling? You may get both for £30-35 million?

Berkley Abraham’s + £20-30m for Rice. It would allow us to buy Tarkowski.

Rice will go at some stage. If we can hold onto him until after The Euros then his price will soar again.

We are not a big club, although we have the potential to be a big club. Sometimes you have to do things not liked by the fans, like selling Rice. I am a true WHU fan, but if he wants to go, his best mate is there, European football and trophies; then he’s going to go. We CANNOT offer ANY of this. Plus he’ll get a whopping payrise. I am a realised, having been involved in football. People move for money and success. we cannot offer either. Fact unfortunately.
