A lot of debate over alleged Gomez comments of wanting to play in Champions League. I think people over play this, it isn't a case of wanting to play Champions League really or else they would be happy to sign for Steau Bucharest or some such club. No what players mean I believe is they want to play for a top club in England, Spain, Germany, Italy or perhaps France. Probably one of 14 or 15 clubs. So all they are really saying is I would like to play for Liverpool, areal Madrid, Barcelona and unfortunately Valencia. But we shouldn't think that puts us way down the pecking order. If those clubs don't secure a player they then have a priority generally of playing in one of the top 4 leagues and we can offer that. It may be only for a couple of seasons but it is the obvious stepping stone if they want to play for the very top clubs.

I agree with all of that, but there are more high quality players who want to play for top clubs than there are spaces available for them and they’ve got to ply their trade somewhere, if not only to show the top clubs what they’re missing for their next move.

A club like WH simply needs to be sufficiently persuasive and we’re in a better position to do that with MP at the helm.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 15:25:08
I posted gomez won't be coming to us but it was not shown . Well as just now on sky sports the deal is off hope this one gets posted.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 15:40:42
The player never wanted to come
I hope we haven’t put all our eggs in one basket
with Gomez as time is running out.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 16:09:39
Let’s wait and see, sky sports posted yesterday that deal was virtually done so do they know what’s going on!
If he comes then great but if not then it’s not the end of the world.

5.) 09 Jul 2019 16:30:35
Sky sports talk absolute crap although wouldn't be surprised if this was true.

6.) 09 Jul 2019 18:21:24
Weve been here before everybody. What's this rumour about Balotelli.

7.) 09 Jul 2019 19:42:38
Wonder what the odds are on Shinji Okazaki and Fernando Llorente joining us? I'm very worried. I just can't shake the feeling.

8.) 09 Jul 2019 21:36:04
I do believe he is off to Valencia as it’s more than one source now. But the point is still right as Makro said they only have so many spots - I just hope we have been casting the net a little wider than one player.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 08:15:14
it has become very tiresome reading about Gomez, Gomez bloody Gomez, he clearly is not interested in WH! I think some managers are glory seeking toward the fans with some so called marquee signings that are unproven in the UK by offering contracts that are an insult to a number of our existing players! What discord and upset this can cause in a squad, that is poor man management to Me, we are a TEAM as are all others, look at previous examples of ours who are no more than maybe decent players on a good day, Hernandez £140k, Arnie £120k, disgrace, we should follow Spurs wage structure, they have some far better players than ours on a lot less money! Continued Success and results can’t lie!

10.) 10 Jul 2019 19:06:59
I think most deals are structured especially the big money transfers. It's far from over they could perhaps renegotiate if structure was actually the issue.



18 Jun 2019 21:31:55
Report in Spain that Gomez doesn't want to join West Ham prefers Valencia but is also dragging his heels to see who else comes in.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 08:01:13
If he is umming and arring and his agent is trying to tout him than good luck to them both, its obvious they don't care where they go as long as the money is right.

I have heard from a decent source that we are going to go in for both Smalling and Jones. arhhhhh someone please tell my my mate is winding me up.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 14:02:34
Your mate is winding you up.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 03:35:26
Smalling and Jones, the tea lady must have found some loose change in the back of the couch again. Five pound forty pence should cover them :)

4.) 20 Jun 2019 09:23:33
Your mate is definitely winding you up. These types of transfer are long gone at WH.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 23:30:45
See now supposedly we have agreed terms with Gomez - what to believe.

6.) 21 Jun 2019 23:10:11
I'd ask for BAILLY from utd so underated for me . COYI.



21 Jan 2019 11:24:24
Rumours Spurs want Carroll for 2 mill. Now I don't think Carroll adds much but hope we don't sell to Spurs. Why help them? Prefer he goes for nothing at season end than Spurs for 2 mill.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 13:00:30
He is not going to spurs, someone is on a wind up.



30 Oct 2018 00:09:49
How much truth in the Diop/ PSG rumour? I'm sure they would keep an eye on French players doing well but are they really lining up a 50m bid? Would be a great profit but surely we want to keep the players we bring in but I guess the risk with any foreign players is they will want to take a good opportunity back home if it arises.


1.) 01 Nov 2018 17:21:53
HE WONT be leaving just yet whatever happens He’s the star of the transfer window IF we get a genuine bid of 60 m plus maybe BUT there have been NO enquiries so far. IRONMIKE.

They are looking lethargic again. If they can't lift and play with passion against Spurs I'm dreading the next month.


1.) 23 Nov 2019 13:23:45
Not good today. No effort, energy and strolling around the pitch terrible.

2.) 23 Nov 2019 13:30:45
This is relegation form, given the players we have I would hate to be in that battle come April as they are mostly too soft to dig in and work hard.

3.) 23 Nov 2019 13:39:52
He ain't a keeper he's flapped at all three goals and IMO should save at the very least 2of them.

4.) 23 Nov 2019 14:28:05
Hopefully the late goals don’t paper over what is a massive crack.

5.) 23 Nov 2019 15:12:07
Time for changes. God knows where we start but the premier league is to tough to carry on like this until we are in deep trouble and then make changes when it's too late.



09 Nov 2019 17:04:26
That was truly awful again, no fight, no idea. Roberto, Diop, Balbuena, Anderson, Rice, all next to useless - Roberto, Diop and Anderson all serial offenders over the last month or so too. We have a good squad but not a squad who will be strong in a fight at the bottom if we get sucked into it over the next month of games. Unless we lift for the Spurs game, which we do tend to do, I can see an embarrassing result and then the board will have to consider things. As I have said before I don't like when panic happens and managers are sacked and am not calling for MPs head but I think that a big loss might just make them consider his position.


1.) 09 Nov 2019 17:30:23
Why wait any longer
If it ain’t changed by now can’t see it changing
at all.



25 Sep 2019 21:41:07
Well that's sobering, getting a right doing over by Oxford. Truth is we have had a good draw including Man Utd who are in free fall and we need to be careful we don't get ahead of ourselves. As I said in another thread Bournemouth will be a big game this weekend and hopefully we can play like we did against Norwich rather than the last few performances where we haven't looked so great but have gotten the job done at the back.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 22:23:26
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!



26 Aug 2019 03:32:41
Nice to see spurs being kinder to their fans this year and not raising their hopes early on. :)


1.) 28 Aug 2019 13:40:14
Well at least we have hopes, supporting west ham you never get that 😂🤣😂.



14 Aug 2019 23:51:04
Watching Adrián win the Super Cup reminded me of a post on a social network I read the other day about him, and I thought how true. It's like breaking up with your girlfriend on good terms and wishing them all the best, but then seeing them with their new boyfriend so soon and feeling upset they have managed to move on and be happy.


1.) 15 Aug 2019 08:08:15
Agree entirely but so pleased for Adrian👍 Absolute professional and a dedicated, loyal person, unlike others we all know to well have been at our club😂😂 Well done Klopp for such a shrewd move to get him, just wish we had managed to keep him happy enough as such an experienced standby! I can only think that Klopp suggested he would get more playing time with Liverpool as they are always going to be involved in many competitions when Allison would have been rested? So great move Adrian👍Well pleased for you, our loss certainly reds gain and you’re already paying them back for their faith in you👍👍.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 00:29:19
Agreed. Good luck to him but as you say do wish we could have kept him as backup.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 01:17:49
Majority of people slagging off WILSHIRE wasn't justified IMO as his passing percentage was 87.5 and he went off with a dead leg which us sensible especially with his injury recOrd if and a big if he stays injury free and has a long run in the ream then judge him not on the opening game against the top three sides in world football he's even apparently hire a private trainer from Ireland so let's get behind the lads tough one Saturday as our record against the seagulls isn't great and they started very well last week so it's going to be tough but man for man we have better players but need to play for each other and not for themselves. COYI.

I said before the season began it will be awful. That was based on the fact I had seen two seasons of it in Australia and it hasn’t really improved things a great deal as while it helps with some decisions the humans looking at it still get things wrong. I must say the time taken in England is far longer than here and that is making it worse. In Australian footy (AFL) they use video ref only for score reviews and that still gets some wrong but it’s quick and unless there is obvious error they go with the on ground call. The minor handballs where it isn’t a deliberate control, the three minutes to decide if Antonio was offside, they are human issues not the technology. They shouldn’t scrap it, they need to review the implementation and the rules on how it’s used.

Well that was surprising. Wasn’t going to get up early morning here but dragged myself out of bed and when we went 1 down thought here we go. Even at 1-1 at half time I thought we were not going to hang on. Then when they got their second I thought oh no Liverpool all over again. Then that goal by Yarmalenko and I think I woke the neighbourhood up. We need that second half fight though every week, not just when we play a Chelsea or Liverpool. We need to take the points when we have easier games from now or we will still get overhauled.

He was injured according to the commentators. That’s okay probably wouldn’t have gotten any opportunities the way we played.

Just because the club wants to tie him down now doesn’t mean he has to. I don’t see that makes him greedy, or wanting away. If I was him and had a couple of first team games I would probably want to wait till season end and see what the clubs plans are for me. What if he signs and then we buy an international defender and he drops down to third choice and his chances of getting game time become non existent. Why rush for him?

I don’t think I have seen a side escape relegation in the modern era by defending and hoping not to concede. The two games back we have not looked like going forward as a unit and have invited both teams on to us. I can’t see this ending well unless we gamble a bit more and push to get some 3 points in games rather than trying to protect one and hoping for a lucky break.

Given the fair play rules mean the wages need to be a percentage of income then if prize money and TV money is withheld then players will either have to take a cut or there will be a lot of clubs in a difficult situation. Going to be interesting to see how they cope. But to be honest I worry more about the average supporter who will lose their job and struggle in some cases to meet payments on mortgages. Very few Oremiwr League players will ever know that stress.


{Ed001's Note - the fair play rules are to be either suspended or amended to deal with this situation.}

Bobby I agree the season won’t be finished, but I think your 5-6 weeks is optimistic. I read we either need a cure or up to 80% or so to be immune which means they need to have gotten it. While I am not believing everything I read, and especially not at the moment, not many have talked about what it takes to get back to some level of normality and that seems about right. So I would think months rather than weeks (I hope I’m wrong) . But in terms of football, I can’t see them back on the park before next season.

Agree on Diop but I think he has improvement in him. He has been partly, or fully, responsible for a lot of the goals against this season and I think he is all over the place at times. But he has ability to be a top centre back and a good manager will make him that.

I would sell Roberto, Reid, Balbuena, Sanchez, Wilshire, Yarmolenko, Ajeti or as many as we can get money for. I would look for a striker as a foil for Haller, another CB and if possible LB and RB. If we got another LB then I would let Masuaku go too.
