Bondswell medical supposedly today? Don't know much about him. From Leipzig, England youth international?

Stories around the En-Nyseri sound like the chase for that Uruguayan if it is to believed. Keep chasing him even when he has made it clear he doesn't want to come. Hope it's not the case.

Maxi Gomez was it Sdl?

2.) 25 Jan 2021 21:23:49
Yes I hear he hasn’t gone so well in Spain anyway.

3.) 25 Jan 2021 23:08:58
So any more on Bondswell? Supposedly a promising young LB.

Ed found the quote I had seen on the possibility of Anderson playing for a third club, it was on Claret and Hugh ' FIFA have amended the rules to allow players to play for three clubs in one season for this year only as a result of the C.V. ' I haven't seen anywhere else the rule changed but tbh haven't really looked either. As you said the standard rule is three clubs but can play for two - great if they have amended it as Anderson sitting on the bench for Porto or us is not good for him or West Ham.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks, I will check when time allows.}

Strange if the report is true that we will pay 8m to Brentford when we sell Benhrama regardless of what we sell him for. Have heard of % sell on clauses but hadn't heard of guaranteed sums before.




05 Oct 2020 22:31:38
Mohamed Simakan, any chance Ed? Don't know him at all.


{Ed002's Note - Milan have had several bids knocked back - it makes no sense for WHU to me.}

If any C/ B in tonight it will be tomoiri from chelsea sorry for the spelling. COYI.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 23:23:25
Tomori deal is off according to Ssn he didn't want to join.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 23:47:51
Sorry to sound too objective about this, but the fact is we have what we have and we need to support our team in spite of what many may think was a disappointing window.
However, I do believe we have enough in the squad to do OK this season, but not great.
Let’s get behind the team now and put this window behind us.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 23:53:36
COYI absolutely right. I think we started last season believing we had enough and not much has changed in terms of players, one right back in, some squad pruning, we may still bring in a Championship player, so it really is now about Moyes getting the best out of them. We know they can perform when setout right and motivated.

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.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 13:59:37
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.

Do Betfair understand Fat Franks history with West Ham?

Frank Lampard specials - Betfair

Next West Ham manager - 5/ 1
Next Newcastle manager - 17/ 2
Next England manager - 12/ 1

Couldn't believe I even read it 😮.

Always did prefer his dad.



26 Jan 2021 18:49:28
Good first half shame the two posts by Antonio as should be clear and reminds me of the Man Utd game where we totally dominated first half but then second was different. Hope it doesn't happen today.




23 Jan 2021 17:02:09
First 60 minutes the one and two touch football was really too much for Doncaster, not a typical West Ham cup match against a lower league side, we looked good. Great to see the youngsters get some minutes too. All around a good game, hopefully we can do something away to United or Liverpool as this season it could open up.




20 Jan 2021 20:42:04
From verywestham:

"he final day of the US presidency is traditionally punctuated by a raft of pardons decreed by the outgoing premier. Despite the unconventional nature of much of his presidency, Donny 'Big balls' Trump has stuck with tradition and pardoned a host of vagabonds and scoundrels.

All of which is great news for Dimitri Payet, Jermain Defoe and Marko Arnautovic who will no longer need to spend every waking moment fearing the wrath of the Hammers faithful. Meanwhile, Paul Ince has been deemed to have served his time and therefore no longer warrants a pardon.

However, there was no such joy for Frank Lampard who has been cruelly overlooked by Mr Trump. Lamps will have to serve out his time in the shambolic hell that is Stamford Bridge and even worse has recently been assigned a new cellmate in Avram Grant.

The pair of callous perpetrators were forced to endure the harsh punishment of watching Chelsea being hopelessly outclassed by Leicester tonight, prompting some Hammers fans to call for leniency by the reinstatement of the death penalty as a one off measure for the tormented pair.

Meanwhile, rumours abound that the Hammers have launched an audacious bid for Mason Mount to join his best mate Declan Rice at the London Stadium with sEx-Employee revealing " the lads want Champions League action next season and let's face it that's a lot more likely with West Ham than Chelsea right now"".

Going to make a massive call - I reckon we are staying up this season.

Not sure that bet is going to win you much!

Agree Son is brilliant and if Hwan was anything like him he would be snatched up. But when Australia have played Korea the focus is watch Son as no-one else including Hwan is likely to score.

I would have thought Dawson was the obvious one as he would be cheaper. But Benhrama we had to pay the money at some stage so maybe that was the logic, and leave the Dawson decision.

Park was South Korean too and one of the best midfielders in Asia. If anyone is expecting Hwan to be anything like Son they are going to be really disappointed.

He is t really much of a goal scorer, have seen him play a number of times as watch the South Korean national team play most of their matches and like most South Koreans, Son perhaps one of the exceptions, works hard, good on the ball, but doesn’t score often.

Possibly true Chelmsford, but this guy won’t be bothering the scorers more than a handful of times a season.

I might sound like a broken record but Hwang will never be a 20 goal a year striker. He had a good season in Austria (Ajeti anyone? ) and moved to Germany where he was touted as a replacement for Warner.

It has not worked out and they want rid of him. For Korea he struggles even in Asian games to find the net.

I will support him if we end up picking him up and will hope he proves me wrong but having seen a lot of his international games I think he is not the answer unless all we are looking for is someone as a filler if Antonio gets injured and he is going to be on the bench mostly.

Agreed Chelmsford, if he is available then a decision needs to be made, not sure he would add much based on his last season and a half, but still a decision. Almost better if he isn’t available.

Getting better but I do wish he would learn to play the easy pass sometimes and not try so hard.

And we are 4th in the Premier League after letting him go 🤣 good luck to him and let him say what he wants but scoring against Crawley isn’t running the midfield against Manchester United.
