Heard last night from someone involved at West Ham we are looking to loan Gelson Fernandes. Strikes me as a great deal for all involved.

I have been a huge supporter of Arnautovic but even i agree that now is the time to sell. I honestly think WHU can do well if Gomez comes in, if he doesn't want to be part of that then let him go. I think £25M is about right.

Would anyone go for Tierney at Celtic? I just think LB is becoming a problem area for us.

For me, Fournals, Gomez + Tierney is a great transfer window. Then if we can get another striker in, not for the sake of it, but a good one, that would represent excellent business. I do also agree that we need to move a few on first. Onwards and upwards COYI.

if I was celtic owner i'd want more than 25m for Tierney so don't see us going near that.


2.) 04 Jul 2019 15:18:46
Gomez is having talks again with valencia for less money than we have offered so its clear he don't want to join us.


3.) 04 Jul 2019 23:27:38
Yes see rumour we are trying to hijack the deal but if he is satisfied with the money they are offering then not sure it will happen.

A fresh approach is required they say.

Again, I'm yet to see a name mentioned that is even close to the realms of reality.

Pretty clear on Saturday who won us the points. The manager. His changes even though unpopular were the difference.

Credit where it's due. I saw someone mention Ancelotti. Get real.

Lmao mikesiron. Step out of that persons shadow lol and in football anything can happen. You never know do you? If you can predict the future can you tell me tonight's lottery numbers.

Evening All,

I see we have missed out on Andre Gray, real shame. Pace, clinical and value for money and English. I think we are really short up front.

For me Toni Martinez has to now be given a long overdue chance to be involved on a regular basis.

With us apparently preparing to bid for carvallho I think nobles days are numbered thank god because he won't be in front of obiang or kouyate in my opinion.


2.) 09 Aug 2017 23:38:30
What chance have we got of getting him ( Carvallho) he has a buy out clause of 39.5 million and we are going in at 25! If this is true their just going to laugh at us. shocking. I am not saying go pay the money ( don't know enough about the player) but if you want him pay the money, 15 million shy is just 2 bob but unfortunately seems to be par for the course!


3.) 10 Aug 2017 09:57:54
Absolutely delighted we did not get Grey, his views are not welcome at any community club like ours.


4.) 10 Aug 2017 13:39:33
Which views Ludodog? I'm not aware of any views he has. Do say.

Afternoon fellow Irons.

Whilst I read and partially accept many of your concerns regarding our transfer activity, it is worth noting we lost more points from winning positions than I believe any other club. We have signed Premier league winners and experienced heads which I believe should help us avoid so many dropped points this season.

I hope it also puts a stop to this consistent hammering by the big teams. Which has become alarmingly commonplace.

If we play a back 4 it will be business as usual! . if Bilic doesn't revert to a 3 with 2 wing backs similar to last year when we were in all sorts of trouble then it could be painful season ahead!

I can understand why Eddie Howe is top target. I just don't see him leaving Bournemouth for West ham at the moment. The only manager I can see coming who is any better than El Pel is Marcelo Bielsa. Is he a gamble? You bet he is.

The team put EFFORT in today and that's what happens with EFFORT you give yourself a chance of winning football matches if you have talent which this result proves but it shouldn't have to be one of the big boys we have to apply ourselves in every game even if it's AFC Wimbledon or CHELSEA one player I would like to single out i's BALBUENA he was immense today but we'll done lads let's start our season now. COYI.

I see no reason not to go for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Serial winner, consummate professional, still a very talented player.

Superb commercial buy too. Don't see any reason not to try.

London is a huge draw for foreign players.

So WHU were going to go all season without a sticky patch? All clubs at some point in the season struggle, we are no different.

Can't believe people even talking about other managers. El Pel is in the top 15 managers in world football. Without any question. For me he would be inside the top 10.

We play a far better brand of football and with that comes risk. I hated going to games under Moyes. Terrible to watch.

Let the manager do what he does best. Also, it comes as no surprise that this slump happened off the back of the injury to our most important player. Fabianski.

Agreed it is not time to panic but it is time to look at the form of some players and how slow the build up play is. Talk of MP getting sacked is just silly given a few weeks ago those same whiners were whining at the board for not extending his contract. Fans react to short term results and don’t give enough focus to where the club is going.


2.) 04 Nov 2019 14:34:39
I personally am getting a little worried, we don't seem to have drive and our football is far to slow, Haller needs to be fed more and he will score but sometimes the midfield is to deep, I don't know what's happening but something isn't right, I agree no need to panic but the football for me to to predictable, to slow, and i'm not sure how MP is getting his message over as for me certainly not working at the mo.

The Palace game we should have been well ahead at half time, the Everton game as to be one of the most Lack lustre games I have seen from the players for quite a while, we have a few tricky games ahead and we need to pull or socks up and quickly.


3.) 04 Nov 2019 17:43:24
Spurs not won away in league in last 12 games
step up West Ham in 3 weeks lol.


4.) 04 Nov 2019 18:29:22
I think your assessment Warrington is well articulated and pretty accurate in my view. Upcoming fixtures do concern me slightly, still think we are progressing as a club.

The Premier league is so competitive. I am a regular attender of Seria A games. You cannot even compare the two. We are getting closer to where we want to be.


5.) 04 Nov 2019 22:07:50
Agree Warrington it is worrying but I think it’s a personnel issue at the moment. Losing Fabianski was a huge blow and Antonio is something different who drives at defenders. For me as I have mentioned Diop seems to be all over the place and is t performing at all. Anderson seems to have settled into playing sideways and backwards and the tricky run and through passes he plays at his best aren’t there at the moment. Noble is another season slower and it’s showing. We tend to get overrun in midfield a lot and when in possession as you say far too slow in build up as no-one is pushing forward they all ply the easy pass sideways and the other teams drop and wait for our mistake. I’m sure MP sees it all and has the experience to put it right which is what we don’t have. I know when we play at our beat we are a handful for any other than perhaps the top 2, and even Liverpool we should have won last season at home. So hoping next match is a much better effort as you say some really difficult fixtures and if we don’t pick up some points we will be looking over our shoulder come Christmas.

Hiya Sdl watch NOBLE closely throughout the match he trots around like a noddy dog a million miles behind the game he's okay with the ball at his feet but football is so much more than that especially now you have to be an athlete to play in the premier league as there ain't no hiding places and I'm sorry but him and snod grass ain't the answer and that is why our defence is left wide open with no protection as rice is trying to do two or three players roles NOBLES legs are gone and don't somebody post he's never had pace that's not what I mean he's just pedestrian at best he don't get up to anywhere near the pace discussion it's a trott and a very slow one I get people saying he's Mr claret and blue yes but he's getting paid an awful lot of money for his privelages but them privelages ain't good enough far from it. COYI.

Any win away from home is a brilliant result in the Premier league. It's so competitive, my partner is Italian and I go to a lot of Seria A games, the standard is terrible compared to our top flight.

However the biggest positive is Haller getting off the mark. I thought he showed some nice touches against City, if he can get 15-20 goals then minimum top 8 for us this year. Good strikers cost so much because they are hard to find.

Make no mistake West ham are a very attractive club to foreign players, London based and play in front of 60,000 every week in front of some of the best fans in the world in the best league in the world. We have one of the best managers in the world too. This season we should aim for top 6. We currently have the best side in my living memory.

I posted a while back arguing that Fournals, and a decent striker would represent a good window.

I don't really want to see us bringing in player's for the sake of it now. If there are any good value for money players available that want to come, great. If not, I am satisfied we have done decent business. I also think we need to keep our best players, Lanzini is one of them.

MikesIron

1.) 26 Jul 2019 18:44:52
You have to admit we are short in the Striker position having Chica as our only back up, and before you say it Antonio is not a Striker! . if we want to tread water at best then by all means keep it as it is but if West Ham are serious about pushing the top 6 then we have to have quality in depth!

Also we need a CDM as if Rice is injured then Sanchez is our only back up (Yikes) and before you say we have loads of midfielders you are right we have an abundance of attacking midfielders not defensive!

Also i know it won´t be addressed this window but we are desperate for 2 new full backs of quality! . Yes we have a quick young guy at RB who i´m still not sure on his defending attributes and at LB well, Masuaku had a handful of games towards the end of the season where he did ok but does not gloss over how horrendous he was before that and Cresswell is on the decline it´s plain to see!


2.) 27 Jul 2019 11:30:35
Noble can play cdm. He doesn’t need to be quick, as long as he recognises a situation enfolding - which he usually does, then he will play.

thought he had his best game for a while against Bournemouth, my only criticism of him is he is keen to bomb forward, not so keen to track back after getting forwards. But the guy has a great engine, I like him.

Butland has been a disaster for over a year now. Wouldn't even consider it.

Was you at the game? Must of watched a different game to me. Fornals looked lost to me and Haller just couldn't get into the game for the first 65 minutes.

United were poor, except for 15 minutes after half time. A mature West ham performance I thought.

Posts like these drive me mad. The ball is played long normally through a lack of options being offered to the goalkeeper. It's rarely the goalkeepers fault. He makes enough saves, top saves at that, for me to forgive any short comings in his ability to pick a pass. He isn't first choice because of his ability to pick Lanzini out with a 50 yard peach.

Fabianski, in my view, would walk into almost any football team in the world. We are very fortunate to have him.
