Glad to see the back of Arnie.
I watched Gonzo's video on claret and Hugh. Which I thought was really good. Much as I would like Gomez to come to West Ham I'm not sure I want a player to come who would rather go elsewhere. Admittedly none of us know the real truth there. But it can't be good to have a player come because basically his agent is pimping him out! Also is he worth 44million.
I'm not sure he is. But would be more than happy if I am proved wrong in that he proves he is worth it and wants to play for us.

Unfortunately West Hm aren’t a club with enough prestige that we can base our transfer business on players that desire to play for us. Hugill wanted to play for us and look how that has turned out.

We have to persevere and convince the players to come when they would rather go elsewhere. This isn’t to say they will then down tools and not play. They are professionals. They may decide to move on after a season but as long as we get some decent performances from them and sell for a good price then that’s all we can do at the moment, with our current business model and desire of the manager.

I cannot see the benefit of signing any player where it has been stated they prefer to play elsewhere whether it is true or not, especially when they have not experienced playing in the Premiership and living in the UK, that to me is very unwise! It is far easier for them to play in Europe with another club overseas as the standard overall in the leagues is not as high as ours! Of course there are huge amounts of overseas players that successfully make the transition and settle in the UK, but I think it’s far better to bite the bullet and pay extra to buy a striker who at least can play in our league! We are WH and I find the comments like this one’s not good enough for whatever reason not applicable to us, we are not a top 6 club yet, so we need to get realistic about this!

It’s the age old chestnut - how to make a club attractive for the top talents.

As Chelms says, we are not there yet, but if we think about last season, the signs are encouraging: appointing MP shows serious intent to become a club that contends and the signing of Anderson, then Fornals clearly follows that up.

Without a foreign management buyout by a multi-gazillionaire, it won’t happen overnight, BUT it is happening.

By Aug 10th, I am convinced that MP/ H will have a formidable strike force in place. They have cleared out Carroll, Perez and Arnautovic (Chicha’s future is in the balance) and have practically a clean slate to bring in players they want for the style of play we are developing.

Then add the returning long term injured, who by all accounts are working well in Switzerland, and we have every reason to be optimistic about next season.

Bar the Left Back and Defensive Mid, MP could play a complete team of players that have come in under his stewardship.
Masuaku/ Cresswell
Quite a change in just 1 year! I'd call this progress.
One of the most promising things about our attraction right now is that (so far) we have kept hold of Diop, Anderson and Rice AS WELL AS signing Fornals. A good striker who brings these AMs into the game more and we could have a good season. I still worry that we are not combative enough in CM alongside Rice though.

Left back, for me, is the biggest issue, Nick.

In the team you list, both Fornals and Wilshere do plenty of tracking and tackling back and would complement Rice nicely.

Bearing in mind the players you haven’t included, MP is developing a pretty good all round squad.

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.

I agree with Marko and think we should be bold and go for it.
In regards to Burnley I can’t help thinking their dreadful form had a lot to do with Dyche’s insistance on picking Joe Hart who I think is a terrible keeper. Since they have put Heaton back between the sticks they have won a lot of games and lots of clean sheets!

Got to agree with you there Whorya . I do wish we had a plan B and as you say play someone up alongside Haller, who is quality . He is too exposed and isolated on his todd!

Hi Wales (good win in the rugby today, well done)
I agree with your positivity and am not sure I would want us to be relegated. For me I couldn’t care less about the league cup but I think the FA Cup is special and want to see us make areal effort for it. I think we are really progressing under Pelle. The one thing I don’t like which I feel came in under Fat Sam was premiership survival at all cost. Let’s get the 40 points and relax. For me it’s the style in which we play is so important. Which generally at this moment is very good!

I tend to agree. Great result against Utd but I wasn’t over impressed with the performance. But hey a win against them is always good. I’m not too worried that we are out of this cup. The FA Cup is a different matter.
Bournemouth will be tough but they let teams play so hopefully we will bring the A game!

Looks like you were spot on Mark!
Your surname isn’t Pelegríni is it! 😃.
