It appears we've made contact with Haller and Rondon, and to throw a spanner in the works we've been offered Marega! It could only happen to us. Buying all 3 would cost approximately £90m. 1 we will buy, 2 possibly, all 3 unlikely. Personally I'd go for Marega and Rondon, both tried and trusted, plus the pair would cost approximately the same as Haller, so we get 2 for 1.What does everyone else feel?


1.) 13 Jul 2019 09:55:37
Haller and Rondon.
Rondon knows league and Haller is best striker from this trio.

2.) 13 Jul 2019 10:58:09
Iagree with Tulen, Haller can take us to the next level. Rondon has Prem. experience.
Haller and Rondon have Pace and strength ideal for the Premiership.
Lets hope we can pull it off.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 11:17:53
Marega and haller awesome.

4.) 13 Jul 2019 12:01:58
To many links and speculation as normal . I will wait and believe it when I see one or more of them in the shirt or signing on the dotted line.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 12:47:25
Having looked at the stats over the last few weeks it would be Seb Haller and Moisa Marega for me Haller played outstanding last 2 seasons at Frankfurt as part of an attacking 3 and Marega has an outstanding return per game would remind me of a Hartson and Kitspn partnership

Not so excited about Rondon but he does have Premier experience - all 3 would be amazing.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 13:21:58
If haller is to sign then for my best guess look for a free agent to come in as the number 2 striker, don't Wright off Mario for that slot, you just never know.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 21:46:13
Don’t think Haller will sign - maybe a pessimist but don’t see it happening.

8.) 14 Jul 2019 23:59:34
Totally agree Sdl. COYI.



10 Jul 2019 22:31:57
Keeping Chich may be a good thing. It'll cost approximately £7m in wages, but if he scores 8-12 goals it could be worth £120m regards to staying in the league, therefore a no brainer.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 06:19:14
Mebe but he didn't work hard enough when he didn't have the ball[which was a lot of the time] Once he looses the ball his shoulders drops and complains the ball to him wasnt good enough. He will always have fans on his back if he doesn't work. He does have a lot of talent and is good in the box but for me his work rate is not good enough, but as u said 7M isn't a lot in todays market.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 06:57:52
Markwhu, agree with your reasoning about Hernandez, if he does score that amount of goals it won’t be through his own workrate that’s for sure. Bideford is bang on with his assessment of him, his work rate is appalling, non exiistent off the ball, you can’t consistently afford to have non contributors in our league or team! If he bangs them in, then all will be forgiven, he is on £140k to do just that, but for me an anonymous squad player!

3.) 11 Jul 2019 09:13:09
Chico can't play as a lone striker as he needs someone who will do the work for him, at this point I wouldn't sell him though as we have no one else.

4.) 11 Jul 2019 12:49:14
We might as we have kept Perez he actually scored almost as many goals as chocaritto and was only on the pitch half as long.



15 Jun 2019 18:36:56
IF we get Gomez and Jordan then someone will need to go to balance the books. Personally I'd sell Wiltshire, if someone were willing to take him. Build a squad that is fit.


1.) 15 Jun 2019 18:58:05
Looks like Gomez prefers Valencia as he wants to remain in Spain. gutted.

2.) 15 Jun 2019 20:50:19
Champ league football is a big draw, but it's not done yet either way.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 07:22:42
Hammers fan, is that really a surprise? I wonder what the percentage difference is between British moving to Spain or vice versa, he’s not struggling for options?

4.) 16 Jun 2019 09:16:23
True, MarkWhu, but it doesn’t have to be a midfielder. If, for example, a deal is done with MU for Diop, then we buy Maripan, there will be a significant profit.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 16:59:11
sorry mate i would keep Wiltshire for this season just to see if he stays fit, if he does get back to anywhere near his best it would only make WH stronger.
Only time will tell, but let's give him a chance/
Remember Snoddy everyone wanted him to leave [includeinng me] but Pel. saw someting in him and kept faith
Pel. signed Wilshire so let's give him a chance.

Lets wait and see he's only 27 and i hope he does make it.



27 May 2019 17:23:13
We've had a bid of £18m turned down by Barcelona for Gomez, who want £25m. Just pay the £25m before Everton do 😤.


{Ed002's Note - You appreciate it is not quite as simple as that?}

1.) 27 May 2019 18:04:30
I have read we are looking to raise our offer is there any truth in this Ed? Obviously competition for him will be tough but I think it would be a great signing if we can pull it off. What worries me is if he is thought to be a main target does that mean the likes of chicharito and arnautovic going to be staying?
I’d definitely want to replace chicharito if I had the chance.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know but the player will want to understand what options are available to him - particularly those that may include Champions League football.}

2.) 27 May 2019 17:39:05
We're interested in him all the time season tickets are up for renewal. After that, we'll be back to scouring the Turkish leagues and players from relegated clubs again.

3.) 28 May 2019 07:30:18
Well said Billy😂🤣😂🤣 Not to many of us fooled by that rubbish talk! I read all this but completely dismiss it until we have done the business, ridiculous talk!

4.) 28 May 2019 11:19:50
As always, we will just have to wait and see.

Having said that, how many genuinely thought we would actually sign Anderson when the rumours first surfaced?

5.) 29 May 2019 12:52:37
Our board need to make a STAR signing. Something similar to when we brought Phil Parkes and broke the record. The players we are after are good players, but not the sort to entice other ‘names’ to join. The fans deserve it. They’ve been loyal through some pretty average times. If the board really wants to put us on the map then please do so.

6.) 29 May 2019 23:11:21
Mark why I agree with you mate. It’s been almost 10 years since Gold and Sullivan took over. Although they cleared the club debts and got us on steady ground, I can’t help but feel that they have milked millions from the TV rights, gate takings, merchandise and selling our beloved Boleyn ground. Hearing that a wealthy Dubai based Billionaire was looking at taking over Newcastle for £350m filled me with envy. I wish we had a suitor of a similar ilk who would take ownership of our club and that Gold and Sullivan would walk away. At least then we could compete with proper investment and when we wanted a player, we didn’t fanny around with low balling on offers.

7.) 01 Jun 2019 21:45:52
The answer to your question mark with this board is they talk high but aim low and before everybody jumps on the bandwagon and say we spent 100 million in last teaser window with outgoings it wasn't anywhere near that . COYI.



20 May 2019 20:19:58
At Chadwell Heath today a couple of people were talking about Edin Dzeko, might be nothing.


1.) 21 May 2019 06:51:49
Sounds about right Mark, ex ManC, 30 years plus a couple more, give him a 3 year contract at whatever he asks for🤣🤭.

Pellegrini may only buy one striker and use Antonio as the second. With the amount of attacking midfielders we have he may consider it not viable.


1.) 06 Jul 2019 22:22:58
Yes, I’ve thought about that, but, if Chich goes, surely we will have to buy two front line strikers.

{Ed002's Note - That is the intention.}

2.) 06 Jul 2019 22:34:40
- and, of course, the wages issue will be completely freed up if Chicha leaves.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 22:38:56
Quick question, Ed002. Are your posts based on definite knowledge, or better background information than most? For example, you have said there is no chance of Wout joining WH. Is that because you absolutely know that to be the case, or you haven’t heard anything to suggest it might be on the cards?

{Ed002's Note - I can say with confidence that he will not be joining WHU - as I have said.}

4.) 07 Jul 2019 13:13:22
Would be absolute madness for us to let 3 strikers go and only replace with 1 striker going into a full season. we weren´t exactly prolific last season anyway!

If Chica goes as well i would expect us to sign at least 2 perm strikers and 1 on loan or a free!

Unless of course they´re happy with our youth strikers stepping in as cover!

After all we not blessed with luck when it coms to injuries at West ham!



04 Jul 2019 22:41:58
If I were Pellegrini I'd go for Marega and Rondon now Arnies going.




25 Jun 2019 21:12:09
There are certain players Pellegrini cannot sell: Fabs, Diop, Noble, Rice, Anderson, if anyone came in for the rest it wouldn't fuss me.


1.) 26 Jun 2019 07:36:40
I'd add Antonio and Snoddy
to my must keep list.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 09:15:45
I'd add Balbuenna and Frederick's to that list and wouldn't mind too much if Snoddy went because I think he's going to be a bench player this season.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 17:43:01
We need bench players as well so called first team choices, form as injury comes and goes. ⚒⚒⚒.



15 Jun 2019 17:26:30
Man Utd interested in Diop for £45m plus a player. Gulp!




29 May 2019 14:17:08
Carroll Adrian and Nasri leaving on the 30 June frees up about £200k per week. Be interesting to see what happens with the money.

Diego Costa would want too much, but he’d be perfect.

Wilson’s a good player, but he’s had both cruciate ligaments done.

If true about Lanzini it’s a disgrace. He’s been injured for 9 months, an injury received on international duty. We pay his wages and then he wants to leave. He owes us a year.

Sturrridge and Wellbeck would be great signings on pay as you play, otherwise it would not be a good deal. We already have Wiltshire who will get injured in the first game he plays. We’ve just got rid of Carroll so we DO NOT want another injury prone player on £50k plus each week.

Personally, I feel Noble will start most games under Pellegrini. He appears to trust him. Plus he’s the skipper and without him we look a little rudderless.

We are not a top 6 club, therefore we need to look at players who will improve us. Rondon n Marega would improve us up top and possibly help us attain 7th. At that stage we’d be close and ‘top’ players may then become interested in us. It’s a case of building slowly and not being silly like we were under the Icelandic regime.

Good solid pro who can get stuck if a game becomes a battle. Like him.

If we really want to break into the top 6 then we need to keep our top players and not sell them off.
