Reading rumour that Kurt is an outside chance for Thursday - that would be amazing news. But even if he is back for the second leg would be fantastic.


1.) 27 Apr 2022 10:02:34
Incredible; truly the wonders of modern technology in speed healing, surely?

2.) 28 Apr 2022 14:24:50
-----You will need to put this on the teams page please----------

Cresswell has to be replaced he cannot defend him and for nails gone to sleep can't do it at this level

4.) 29 Apr 2022 00:41:01
Yes Cresswell did not have a good game.

5.) 29 Apr 2022 07:03:54
Its the same as the striker issue, How long have we been saying that we need decent full backs. EVery good team has quality full backs. On the whole with a bit more luck we could have won tonight but never mind its on to the second leg

6.) 29 Apr 2022 11:34:54
Tall order needing to win by 2 clear goals in Germany - but, hey, it's not over till the obese adult female shrieks. I broadly agree on the other issues raised. Be careful on Cresswell he is too useful to play basically across all of the defence or make a good left winger / MF in a crisis (ie when nobody else to play there, which may well occur at some point).

7.) 30 Apr 2022 14:06:25
Whorya, ??Have you been watching the Two Ronnies?I’ve heard of fork handles, but didn’t know about for nails. Nice one mate, no offence, made me smile?⚒⚒⚒

{Ed014's Note - me too but was kind enough not to mention it! ?

8.) 30 Apr 2022 19:47:25
Best not even mention the Arse tomorrow then ( innuendo) except break a leg boys.

9.) 03 May 2022 00:29:46
A 22 yr old Norwich defender is available ;as much of this post is about DF

10.) 03 May 2022 10:26:21
Not sure what to say on that debacle; whom does the panel here think SHOULD be picked for Thursday night?

11.) 05 May 2022 20:58:03
Hiya Chelmsford poxy predicted text



24 Mar 2022 19:49:59
I see rumour Liverpool are looking at Haller. I still think if played properly he would have been the sort of player that propelled us forward. I bet if he does go to Liverpool he will be a 20 goal a season player.


1.) 27 Mar 2022 03:30:08
I'd have a wager on that SDl

2.) 27 Mar 2022 20:08:42
Never will happen. Paper talk

3.) 27 Mar 2022 21:30:41
Most likely but just about sums up our history with striker transfers, would probably score against us every time he played.

4.) 29 Mar 2022 11:10:11
Beauchamp and Boogers dream team eh boys

5.) 26 Apr 2022 15:01:44
NB original theme; we are going to dig up Helmut Haller was the rumour



27 Feb 2022 23:54:46
News article in Italy, Todo Fichajes suggesting Rice has agreed personal terms with Chelsea. He is a bit hit a miss with his rumours, but would hate for it to be the case.
I would hope Rice waits for summer and then sits down and asks for evidence the club will move forward with some decent purchases to grow the side before making a decision.
Of course given the length of his contract and the option year West Ham could play hard ball, but really if someone wants to leave it can only be hard ball over price.


1.) 28 Feb 2022 20:08:17
Due to Abramovich's problems I don't think Chelsea and in a position to sign anybody. It is also illegal to negotiate with a plyer that is under contract. So my advise is treat the rumour with the contempt it deserves.

2.) 01 Mar 2022 04:56:01
Chelsea can sign players, they don’t need Romans money poured in to do it.

3.) 01 Mar 2022 08:45:26
With all due respect Sdl they do need his money.
Chelsea FC owe him in excess of 1.5 billion pounds.

{Ed002's Note - No, the money he put in was exchanged for equity.}

4.) 04 Mar 2022 13:47:59
Roman has written off the 1.5bn, widely reported now and just saying / confirming.

{Ed002's Note - Because he gets it in the equity of the club which is worth more than he put in.}

5.) 04 Mar 2022 14:19:11
Ah the crystal ball a la Chez Kitch is becoming clearer after your tutelage Ed. Cheers.



16 Feb 2022 01:57:19
Great to see the club are talking to Noble about an Executive role for the club. By all accounts he doesn't want to go into the football side (coaching) but work in the executive perhaps with Newman.


1.) 16 Feb 2022 16:29:03
indeed,in keeping with his stature and a reward for all his loyal service

2.) 21 Mar 2022 01:50:36
Lets hope he does more work than NEWMAN!

3.) 23 Mar 2022 12:09:30
same as the old man.lol



03 Feb 2022 21:23:33
Declan Rice: "Yeah growing up the whole family was Chelsea,"

"I feel like it's out there, everyone knows, it's well documented but I feel like when you play for a club like West Ham you become really affiliated to it and this is part of me now and my family as well, [who are] massive West Ham fans as well."

Nice words, hopefully he is a unicorn but players kiss three or four badges in their career now. Let's see, but hopefully he can be convinced to sign a new contract in the summer and the club backs it up by signing some decent players around him as I did read we will lose something like 7 players this summer. We are going to need to bring in at least a handful of really talented players with a couple of them needing to be top drawer.


1.) 05 Feb 2022 09:05:33
Unless he signs a new contract he will be off in the summer, he will have 2 years left on his contract then, if he waits another year his value will go down,I won't like it but I do understand he wants to win things aswell.Hes a top player that needs to play in the top competitions we can't offer that consistently

2.) 05 Feb 2022 12:01:25
I understand it is till 2024 with a 1 year option for the club, so essentially 2025

3.) 05 Feb 2022 12:16:18
I think another full season with us not doing anything I could understand him leaving. However if we make some big signings in the summer and we get in top 4 he should stay.

4.) 05 Feb 2022 15:40:09
Dec came through for us today though, a good leaving gift especially if we go on to win the Cup - i mean, who knows at this juncture?

On a wider note we should not have to rely on basically midfielders for both goals - it does show up the striker shortage gain sadly.

5.) 05 Feb 2022 16:21:43
Terrific goal by Rice. Adding those forward surges to his game has added £££s to his value.

On the negative side we were very poor.

6.) 05 Feb 2022 19:46:42
I really don't see why we would even contemplate selling him this summer his contract is till 2025. If we generally want to upset the so called top 6 he needs to stay simple, I really don't see him forcing a move.

We are a few players away from being a very good team.

7.) 05 Feb 2022 20:28:23
I don’t think we will sell unless he forces the issue.

8.) 06 Feb 2022 11:40:08
I think he's probably made his mind up already, the fake 50 million bids were probably a last ditch attempt to keep him, think we will finish 7th highest this year, on another note -moyes has said several times he will only buy players that will improve us, that's what every club does hardly a magic formula,more worryingly is are you telling me they could find anything better than what was on display yesterday?

9.) 10 Feb 2022 20:34:45
Given the latest comments to Neville I think he may well have. While he does say the right thing about West Ham, the dressing room, Moyes, he went on to say how he wants to win the Premier League and Champions League - as ambitious as us fans might be I don't think any would believe in our wildest dreams he will achieve that with us. I would guess we will get one more season then have to sell.

10.) 23 Feb 2022 11:12:32
as Chelsea been mentioned - even they can drop Lukaku when out of sorts - a hint here re Antonio. Then play midfielders in advanced positions - we can do that - perhaps already do somewhat due to signing no other CF's. Ant seems to be drifting into false 9 to perhaps play in Jarrod ; this culd work and maybe be persevered with as short term solution.

Aguerd seems to be getting a bit of press at the moment, can't say I know too much about him. I see Phillips is in the news again with Man Utd, Villa and us mentioned, I imagine if Leeds go down there will be a scramble for a few of their players. Ward Prowse is a new one for us in The Sun, not sure I believe that one as think he is more linked to a move to a top 4 side. Lewis-Potter rumours rumble on and it is understood Moyes has gone to watch him. But the best part of the rumours is that it does seem like they may be in the position to make one or two deals early.




08 May 2022 15:59:10
So short of Wolves winning against Liverpool or Man City we should now have Europa Conference football. We have a bit of a history of stopping Manchester teams winning the league at the end of the season, perhaps an upset next week and a chance still for Europa League? Hopeful.




06 May 2022 22:44:41
Well does seem like Rice won't be starting any European campaign for us next season. While they await the refs report the video is pretty damning. Yes I understand his anger after the loss, and yes I think the ref got a lot wrong (not the sending off however), but it was obvious how angry and emotional Rice was leaving the pitch, why didn't someone grab him and walk him away? Looks like our other players just walked past. Shame because he gave everything and I can understand how he felt, but that won't count when they are handing out the punishments.


1.) 07 May 2022 21:33:13
Its a joke really
Your not allowed to say anything to the ref against lyon we had a know bride taker as a ref not to mention the gobs--t against arsenal
Refereeing across the board need a big shake up as i can't think of any i would let keep their jobs

2.) 09 May 2022 19:47:25
Let’s face it.

If rice is going to accuse the ref of backhanders then unfortunately he has to accept the ban and get on with it, players and managers should accept that opponents are going to waste time and use any tactic they can, we would of done exactly the same in that position.
We need to get used to playing without rice either this year or next so it’s good practice,.



05 May 2022 22:55:46
Now the Norwich game we must win. A tough run home and really need to finish where we are, or if we can get some luck and sneak past Man United. But really hope we can at least be playing Europa Conference next year. Three points this weekend an absolute must so hopefully the lads can pick themselves up and realise it has been a good season but could all come to nothing if we don't push till the end.




05 May 2022 20:27:34
Well down to 10 men 1-0 down, think that is it. Hoping but can't see any come back now ?

Good article and some interesting opinions on who we should get. One correction though, the club had a two year option on Ben Johnson contract which they triggered when negotiations were not successfully concluded, so his contract does not run out this June, but I read they will negotiate again in the summer.

Sounds very likely, like a ‘we tried to get him to stay for 8 years, not our fault’

Sounds like as usual these rumours about Rice are not quite right and the parties are not going to negotiate until season end.

Chelmsford no way would he sign an 8 year contract without a release clause. It isn't just a matter of securing his future but also a matter of having the ability to negotiate that future if things don't go as he would like. He is not going to go short of a penny even if his career ends earlier than expected so he isn't going to be desperate for that type of security that most of us seek, he is already a millionaire. No way will 8 years attract him unless it comes with ability to get out of it if he isn't happy IMO.

He wouldn't sign an eight year contract I wouldn't think, at least not without a release clause. Who would?

Yes was impressed with Antonios contribution in the match. He is what he is, a powerful man with limited finesse but puts in a great shift. His hold up then clip over the top to assist Bowen get his second was first class, and then he goes and blows the one on one. That is Micky and we know that, but he was one of the first Pep talked about after the match, he knows what a nuisance to his defenders Antonio was. He is just someone where you have to accept the good with the bad, and appreciate Bowen benefits from a lot of the work he does.

Last minute goal at OT where Bowen lost the ball and Fredericks was all over the place, missed penalty at home in the last minute. Sometimes these little things come back to haunt you, but reality is that there are lots of them over a season and the table doesn't lie. We dropped points to last minute goals a few times, missed some chances in games, it really only stands out when you try to look back at specific moments because they were against specific teams. We should have beaten Burnley away, we should have beaten Palace at home, shouldn't have lost to Brentford at home, shouldn't have drawn with Brighton at home, lot's of opportunities to have 3 more points at least. But hey two games to go and everything to play for. Man City aren't unbeatable, let's hope for the best.

Yes but we have to sell a project to players not necessarily interested in listening, Man City don’t have to sell anything.

Likely to win the premier league, will be at the sharp end of the Champions League again next season, multi billionaires as owners, have to say Mike is right, we can’t compare with them.
