Good victory tonight against a dogged Sheffield Utd side. 18 months back we'd have drawn or lost.

West Ham have accepted Ajax £20m offer For Haller.


1.) 07 Jan 2021 20:29:36
So who is a realistic target to replace Haller?

2.) 07 Jan 2021 22:51:43
Haller Sorry to say he just didn't work hard enough.
How much will DM get to improve the squad that is the question!

3.) 07 Jan 2021 23:08:56
Well if haller does go let's hope it don't drag on and on getting someone in.

4.) 08 Jan 2021 07:50:20
Markwhu, I will feel vindicated on my continual harsh criticisms of Haller if the deal goes through? At least the Management feel the same as us critics, so we all couldn’t have been wrong, despite protestations about playing him out of position? Only trouble is, other clubs will now push up their prices knowing our need for an Antonio partner? Maybe look at some Soucek recommendations, if Coufal was one, what a player/ bargain he has been? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

5.) 08 Jan 2021 12:16:35
Chelmsford me old mate your wish just came good. Sad but he really never looked like he wanted to be their even with goal of the month last month. Never seemed to smile.

6.) 08 Jan 2021 14:22:01
merceri, yes well pleased he’s departed, completely unsuited for the rough and tumble of the Premiership, which is no disgrace anyway! He should do better at Ajax as he will be playing for the equivalent of any of the top 3 here and if you can’t score with top calibre players around you, then you are lucky any decent club wants you! Ajax are in pole position and their league is not as competitive as the Premiership! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

7.) 09 Jan 2021 04:00:04
Haller will score a bundle at Ajax as they play seriously attacking football, plus the Dutch league is inferior!
We let Haller go for £25m deficit. I wonder if there is a sell on clause?
Be good if we can get rid of Anderson now, although we’d be lucky to get £10m.



07 Jan 2021 00:34:23
Ajax have this evening 'supposedly' made a £20m bid for Haller. If we can get £30m I'd sell him.


1.) 07 Jan 2021 05:48:36
I think we’re also interested in one of their players, (Lassina Traore) so maybe a deal can be done?

2.) 07 Jan 2021 08:20:04
Markwhu, if that’s true, snatch their hands off, £20m would be a dream, offloading £6m a year wages as well, that’s equivalent obviously to £26m for him, 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉TAXI, ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 09:19:31
When I saw this news, I thought, Chelmsford is a lucky boy, Christmas has come twice for him!

It’s a shame because he has the ability, but if it frees up funds to get Josh King I’ll be happy overall. We probably still owe Frankfurt £10mil ish in payments, so we’ll only actually be getting 10-15 mil to re-invest in a player.

Shifting Anderson on would be the best business we could do this window, although I’ll doubt anyone will want a winger who doesn’t even make the squad for Porto.

4.) 07 Jan 2021 10:46:59
I will hold my hand up and accept what we have seen from Haller in a West Ham shirt has not been to the standard we expected / hoped. I will say though, I think he is walking, talking proof of a poorly planned transfer. We signed him off the back of an outstanding season in Germany whereby he played as part of a front two that was often a front three. Jovic, Haller and Rebic as a front three were spectacular.

We haven't regularly played to Hallers strengths in my opinion. Instead we've put him in to a system and expected him to perform to the same levels based on the players we have that play that system well. Antonio.

5.) 07 Jan 2021 10:51:03
🤣😂Appreciate the thought TK, but rumours are just what they are until the deal is done, 🤞🤞🎉Wolves are sniffing around as well🤔🤔Anderson is certainly an enigma to me, maybe some top players acquire such enormous wealth, invest it sensibly then they lose the energy and enthusiasm for the daily rigours of training and Football especially if they have created businesses for the future that can take up a lot of time? ⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 07 Jan 2021 10:47:28
Eds. is there any interest in Anderson this window?

{Ed002's Note - The player is very keen to return to Lazio but Andreas Pereira on loan so a vacancy won't arise in his preferred AM position until the summer. WHU can pay off Porto and look for someone else to take him on loan as they have no need for him - which they may well do, else they know his value will fall away.}

7.) 07 Jan 2021 15:42:19
If keep Haller until the summer and hope his form improves. £20 mill is just not enough lads. I know his form isn’t great which is why the offer was half of what we paid. However, we should still be able to recoup £25-30 mil.
We also have to find a replacement and Josh King also played alongside Wilson at Bournemouth so would our system fit him?
I would try to get a striker in on loan and try him up front with Haller to see if his form will improve. We would have still needed an additional striker anyway right? If having the additional striker doesn’t improve his form, then let him go in the summer when we can dictate a better price. By then stadiums will be full and we won’t be held to ransom.

8.) 07 Jan 2021 15:44:30
Anderson is another story. It’s not about ability with him it’s about desire. He seems to have lost his desire for playing football. This seems evident if he cannot get into the Porto side.
The only people we can blame are Pellegrini and Husillos.
Did they make a good buy at all when they were at West Ham. The only one who gets a start out of everyone they bought is Balbuena.

9.) 07 Jan 2021 15:48:37
Stevie66. Lassina Traore was only played for the Ajax reserves for a year. Do we need a Dutch reserve player?
Look he may be OK but he may not be. I think we should really consider this. Do we need to take another gamblle?
I wouldn’t
He may have scored 22 goals in 33 games for the reserves but against who? 🙄🙄😳😳😳.

10.) 07 Jan 2021 18:45:15
Its crazy to think that if Haller goes we would not have one striker in the squad who was actually purchased as a striker even then haller wasn't an out and out striker he had Jovic and rebic getting beyond him.

The amount we lose on transfers is all down to gold and a sullivan for me they've been at West ham for quite sometime now and its only really looking like we have abit more of a strategy in the market since moyes has come in even now with what moyes the club it is so far away from having a solid recruitment set up he definitely has his work cut out for him, I'm sure I read he wanted some kind of director of football in place.

Also we can't loan another player as max is 2 at the same time.

Eds? How would you rate our chances of moussa demebele coming in? he's out of form which surely increases our chances out of the strikers we have been linked to in my opinion he's the best and as they say form is temporary class is permanent!

{Ed002's Note - I think that he would consider the options that he has and I am not so sure WHU would eb attractive to Moussa Dembele.

The options seem to be:
Moussa Dembele (S) has not reacted well to being on the bench for a few games and with Tino Kadewere proving his worth Lyon are open to selling. There has been a discussion with a couple of sides already but neither could offer him a starting role. Atletico Madrid hope to be able to offering the guarantees he wants and whilst he is not top of their list of replacements the player has said he is open to a move to Spain. David Moyes is a known fan of the player and might well see him as an option at the right price for West Ham.
Boulaye Dia (S) Reims striker who would need to considerably improve his strike rate but has been of interest to West Ham, Brighton, Everton and Marseille. Says he wants to play for Lyon.
Mariano Diaz (S) It is true that Real Madrid have the representatives of Mariano Diaz offering him around on ideally a loan to buy option as they continue to clear the decks ready for a summer spending spree. Diaz is an out and out striker who had a very good season at Lyon three years ago but is simply not good enough for Real Madrid where the goals return has been well below average. He has rejected loans to several clubs already inclding West Brom and Brighton - West Ham may offer solution but commiting to an obligation to buy may not be wise.
Marcus Forss (S) Brentford Striker being considered by Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. New contract so he can be forgotten.
Olivier Giroud (S) Numerous clubs have an interest but will stay at Chelsea until the summer.
Moussa Marega (S) seen by West Ham as a cheap option able to sign on a Pre-Contract in January. But perhaps no longer first choice.}

11.) 07 Jan 2021 22:03:46
See some rumours about Nzola any truth in those? He would certainly fit Moyes style of play.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't hold your breath, he has only just moved - 3 months ago.}

12.) 08 Jan 2021 19:48:05
Thanks ed.



26 Sep 2020 13:48:39
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.

The Super League will not be a 'Super League' with out Bayern Munich, PSG and Ajax. All three are major clubs.
On another point, could the Carabao Cup not be cancelled? It would act as a statement to both Spurs and Citeh.


1.) 20 Apr 2021 15:24:59
Since when did Spurs qualify as a big club? Last won the League 60 years ago. City and Chelsea were nothing until the money arrived. PSG? They may be rich but they play in a weak league and despite some Indy hundreds of millions have still not managed to with the ECL.

The whole thing is a disgrace, driven by the English clubs and Liverpool and United in particular.

Even is they extend Champions League paces to 6 it doesn’t work for them unless their places are guaranteed. If West Ham qualify then they are taking revenue that they believe they should have. It’s almost too ridiculous to believe but here we are.

The fans of the big six are generally in agreement that this is plain wrong.



12 Apr 2021 19:03:26
Another great result. Fitness could be the thing undoing us. We are seriously fit, yet put EVERYTHING in for 60 minutes leaving us empty.
One thing we did learn yesterday. Masuaku cannot be trusted to defend. When Cresswell went off Masuaku fell apart. It also looks Benrahma is not fancied by Moyes to do the defensive graft required.
Is it time to cash in on Antonio? He's always injured and we need players who are young and fit. Personally, I think Abrahams fits the bill. Progression must not be hindered by the past.




06 Apr 2021 23:40:00
Good business agreeing to buy Dawson for £2m. Hopefully, Lingard signs, but if he does, how much? Benrahma is average, yet cost £20m! Lingard must be £30-35m. I don't see Man Utd wanting him back, plus Lingard is the star of our show, whereas he's not at Old Trafford, therefore, his ego alone may drive down the M1 to the London Stadium.




06 Apr 2021 00:04:25
Great result tonight. Ok, we conceded 2 goals, but the teams endeavour was unquestionable. Hopefully, we do get 4th, but if it's 7th, it's still been a great season.




08 Mar 2021 14:52:10
Good that West Ham offered Noble a one year deal. He deserves it, plus he knows his career is coming to an end, so will not expect to play weekly. Great man to have around the squad.
Does this pave the way for Rice to become the captain permanently?


1.) 11 Mar 2021 04:06:12
With cheltenham coming up i'd price that bet of Rice becoming captain about 1/ 8 but not sure on club captain but for me probably both.

Pope would be like a Phil Parkes signing. It’d make everyone see we are serious.

He’s the sort of player Tuchel might sell in the summer.

For me Fornals starts every game, with him Rice n Soucek in the middle we look decent. Plus the man never stops running for the team. He was captain of Spain U21s and will be in their full squad sooner or later. It would be madness to replace him. He does miss chances, but at least he’s there busting a gut to get there. We had a £45m forward who couldn’t be arsed to get there. Fornals/ Rice/ Soucek/ Benrahma/ Bowen is a midfield many Premier League teams would love.

Tammy Abrahams doesn’t play every week,? and when he played against he was sharp. £30m would probably get him. He’d be my choice.

We offered Bournemouth £13m for King last summer allegedly. He now has 6 months left on his contract, therefore the £13m would be reduced considerably to £8 or £9m. In today’s market £8-9m is small fry. At that price King is worth a wager. I’m not a fan of his, yet for the amount it’s a no brainier.
Haller makes his debut today at Ajax, what’s the odds he scores a hat-trick!

Personally, I think the time has come to cash in on Antonio. He still has value, therefore, sell and buy a younger model. Time for sentiment is over. We are a club going forward.

It was only 1-0! Man Utd beat City last week 2-0! 352 in the first half suited us. Changing to 442 ruined us. Be positive everyone. We’re still 5th from top!

Abraham would be a superb signing.
