Reckon it'll be a very busy summer at the Hammers. Players like Carroll, Adrian, Reid going, along with possibilities like Cresswell or Masuaku, Chicha, Arnie, Perez.


{Ed002's Note - Obiang, Nasri, Oxford, maybe Lanzini.}

1.) 08 May 2019 22:56:20
Any idea where Lanzini might go? And who we would look to replace with?

All answers appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - No but WHU are wary of his injury history and could make a mistake over any new contract. Vazquez, OLmo or even Brahimi could replace him.}

2.) 09 May 2019 07:23:29
Why sell Masuaku? That would be a big mistake for me, not so good defensively but great going forward with pace and crosses!

3.) 09 May 2019 09:20:03
He plays left back for us though Chelms, first thing he needs to do is be able to defend properly, especially given the amount of goals we conceded this season.
He has been good the last few weeks granted, but can he do this consistently over a season?

4.) 09 May 2019 15:02:01
How about Anderson moving inside and Arthur moving forward - just a tjought.

5.) 09 May 2019 18:41:38
Saddened to hear of any suggestion about Lanzini leaving. I really hope it does not happen.

{Ed002's Note - But realistically, however good he is it only works when available - and Andy Carroll if completely fit would cause defences all sorts of grief. West Ham need to ponder any new contract carefully - that is the reality. If fit then great, else, more money down the pan.}

6.) 09 May 2019 19:48:34
Lanzini looked proper off the pace when he came back. Think Anderson has stolen his show.

7.) 12 May 2019 11:19:20
I’ve just commented about the ifs we all associate with Wilshere - perhaps the same applies to Lanzini. We know how good he has been before his horrendous injury.

His training stats should give a good indication of how close he is getting to where he was general fitness wise.

I would give him some more playing time today v Watford and concentrate on his match sharpness during the summer and pre-season.

He still has plenty to offer WH.



16 Apr 2019 20:12:36
Sky Sports saying we've been offered Dzeko.


1.) 16 Apr 2019 21:12:19
Utter madness if we do go for him. Roma want far too much for him, (£20M according to some reports) he'll want silly wages (£165k a week's been banded about fcol!? ) and at 33 what value is there in signing him?

He'd only ever be a short term fix at best and we'd have to finish something like 2nd as opposed to our usual 11-15th in the league and win a cup just to cover in prize money what we'd have spent on him - and with the best will in the world Edin Dzeko alone just ain't going to make that happen!

Surely it makes much more sense to sign a younger player who will still have value in 3,4 or 5 years time?

2.) 16 Apr 2019 23:16:30
Well said Billy, hopefully no more sticking plasters.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 06:53:21
Agree entirely with Dzeko comment, these agent / players are such greedy b———-s, all trying to get on the The Premiership gravy train👎 I would say yes for £2m and £25k a week or on yer bike, I wish MP would get these prospective pensioners off his radar, he seems to love some of the ones that played under him years ago! We all know the Premiership is a very tough competitive demanding league, it needs players with stamina and pace in all positions to compete, he as a Manager looking at WH hospital beds should see only to well what a waste of time signing has beens or those with historic injury problems!

4.) 17 Apr 2019 18:11:41
I have no problem with Dzeko, if he’s FREE and requires no more than £100k per week. He’s rarely injured, guarantees goals and his wage would be funded from Carroll leaving, therefore I think it’s a goer.

5.) 17 Apr 2019 18:35:09
Mark, the only problems are, he wants £165k, plus obviously he’s now 33 and the Premiership is tougher from when he was playing in it!

6.) 18 Apr 2019 18:39:51
Dzeko now decided he wants to stay where he is, think he wants an easy life in Italy rather than the tough spotlight of the Premiership, so just as well we didn’t sign another player that wants an easy life on huge wages!

7.) 18 Apr 2019 22:40:06
What about a straight swop Chico for Shelvey.

8.) 19 Apr 2019 10:52:23
Surely we need to aim higher than Shelvy? Ok player. but is he someone that will change out team massively? I'm not too sure.

9.) 20 Apr 2019 08:19:47
See we’ve upped our bid apparently for Medel to £7.7m, am I the only one that is thinking Husillos and MP are far to blinkered in their recruitment policy, Medel approaching 33, Chilean! That’s not cheap for me, experienced yes, but for the bloody Premiership, how many more £7/ 8m’s are we going to throw away on players that are simply not good enough for the Premiership and are short term patch up jobs that will end up on the treatment table picking up their £70k weekly!

10.) 20 Apr 2019 19:35:23
Exactly. When you spend those 7 mil plus wages on these players who will never really play . adds up.

11.) 28 Apr 2019 00:11:33
We cannot help ourselves by signing or loaning a total has been stiff and giving him his retirement wages for a year or too for 80,000 a week with **** all in return excuse my French but when will we learn our lesson ARBELOA EVRA to name a few and dave is spot on we should be aiming higher than SHELVEY and SNODGRASS needs replacing as you can't fault his work rate but he's just a squad player at best . COYI.



06 Apr 2019 07:53:44
Spuds are reported to be willing to sell Trippier, he'd sort our right side out.


1.) 06 Apr 2019 11:40:43
I can’t see any deals between the clubs. Too much bad blood.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 14:24:31
There was a lot of talk about Trippier joining us a few years back before he became a regular first team spud I seem to remember he being seen in a few hostelleries with a few of our lads.

3.) 08 Apr 2019 10:04:31
Trippier would be a great addition for us, but yes unfortunately with the hostile feeling between the clubs that won’t happen! I am obviously not privy to all the reasons for the bad blood between us, apart from being rival capital clubs, but am aware that Levy tried to block us from getting the London Stadium but so did others at the time!

4.) 08 Apr 2019 10:54:49
There are many reasons Jermaine to the animosity. 😏.

5.) 08 Apr 2019 14:46:17
Yeah, Levy hates us for some reason. The Adebayor stuff probably didn't help either.

{Ed002's Note - Spurs tend to over value sales which make them very difficult to deal with. But WHU maintain a serious interest in Mahlon Romeo and I expect they will follow it up.}

19 May 2019 09:54:27
We badly need forwards. Personally, I'd get rid of the 4 we have and buy Rondon and Giroud . Both gettable, both different. Rondo has good movement whilst Giroud holds the ball up. Either would suit our midfield.




14 May 2019 17:28:52
West Ham should go for Bale. £250k each week plus £8-10m. A world class player. He'll be worth 8-10 points so that'll pay the money through premier league places.


1.) 14 May 2019 18:21:54
no chance bale would even consider us. he will have offers from clubs way above our levels.

2.) 14 May 2019 19:03:53
True, but if we want to step up a level this is the sort of player we want.

3.) 15 May 2019 02:41:27
Nice to want players but we need to be realistic about who may want to come or we waste a lot of time for nothing.

4.) 15 May 2019 06:47:36
We wouldn’t get a sniff of Bale, why would he want to join us🤣😂 Under contract until 2022, £600k weekly, if he returned to the Premiership we might get him when he’s about 35 and been crocked for a year then give him a 3 year contract!



12 May 2019 09:02:12
Fancy us to win today. If you were a Watford player you'd have one eye on next Saturday at Wembley. Still think it'll be tight but I reckon 1-2. How did Fabs not win Players Player of the Year as well as Supporters POTY. We obviously recognise a better player.


1.) 12 May 2019 14:57:31
Markwhu, make you right with the win prediction, especially as you say with Wembley beckoning next week. It of course it could work the other way with certain players wanting to prove they deserve to be starting as well? Looks a strong line up today for us us up front, so let’s hope to end a winning note👍⚒.

2.) 12 May 2019 17:59:11
- and win we did!

3.) 13 May 2019 07:13:35
Going to be very boring not having the Saturday games to look forward to😴😴 let's hope we some interesting movement both in and out during the close season? Good to read all the usual posters remarks which sadly I log onto daily😂🤣thank you chaps for the input and thank you Ed’s for the updates on what and what’s not happening👍Haven’t seen MOTD yet as we were on to late, but recorded it, great win, seems Ant and Noble were great yesterday, they both seem to have a new lease of life especially Noble👍👍⚒⚒⚒COYI.

{Ed001's Note - personally I am glad you do log in daily, always interesting to read your comments.}



09 May 2019 19:39:51
James Milners contract is up soon. If I were MP I'd be all over that.




02 May 2019 12:18:31
Sturrridge is out of contract. We could worse than get him on a pay as you play and goal bonus contract.


1.) 02 May 2019 13:42:38
Mark, well he could be a worth a punt at the right deal, his injury history is well documented, no idea of his fitness status at present, but yes he’s a decent player when he’s fit, but “when” being the operative word, we already have more than our share of our players sidelined?

2.) 02 May 2019 18:13:06
Always appreciated his talent, but the combination of a poor injury record and documented arrogance make him a no for me.

3.) 02 May 2019 19:23:11
We replace Carroll with Sturridge? Can't deny we have previous for that sort of signing.

4.) 02 May 2019 19:30:59
I'd be all for him if it was a pay as you play heavily weighted on bonuses would be being win but can't see either party going for it.

5.) 03 May 2019 11:47:29
Great player when fit, but I would rather take a punt on a youngster who may go up in value as a result.
Who knows, they could become the next Rashford! Remember, Rashford was behind Ashley Fletcher at Man Utd and only got his chance because Fletcher was injured. Amazing what that chance did for him.

6.) 03 May 2019 18:30:23
I think we can’t afford to ‘take a punt’, for a couple of years we need players who can do the business straightaway. Sturrridge comes with injury risks, but if the contract was right it’d work for both parties.

Cahill would be a good acquisition.


{Ed002's Note - I think for a year or perhaps two he could help the club stabalise - there is interest from elsewhere but, even though wages would be reasonably high that should not be a problem with outhers leaving. There would be a signing on fee but no huge transfer fee or other costs.}

I think with Yamalenko and Lanzini due back to proper 100% fitness we’ll be ok in Midfield. Personally, I like the balance of Snods, Rice and Noble in the centre. What we need is a clear out up top. Lose them all and start again.

26 Apr 2019 18:53:01
Be foolish to sell Snodgrass. He’s always fit and naturally left footed.

Noble and Antonio have finished strongly I agree. Antonio looks like he’s shed a few pounds. I also believe the side needs Noble as he’s our only leader and when he doesn’t play we look rudderless.

Diagana should have been played on the left yesterday. Presently he’s a 1trick pony and the opposition know he’s going to cut in straightaway. Giving him a go down the left would’ve allowed us to see if he can play as a conventional winger.

He’s never been blessed with pace, but is Free shortly and would be a step up on Cresswell and Masuaku. He’d be a similar signing to Zara-get 18 months out of him.
