What has been refreshing for me (and I hope I don't jinx it) is that players have been on the bench unused and then come in and done a job. Diop as an example seems to have gotten better in terms of positional sense from last year and has played brilliantly after being on the bench for most of the season. But best of all is normally at West Ham we would have had stories of unrest, players not playing wanting out, players not wanting to be Pty of the squad. Haven't had a negative story in a while.

I agree mate also we would have caved in under the pressure of spurs. We now have a team to be proud of. TRUE GRIT.

2.) 22 Feb 2021 07:09:34
There is unity in the squad and back room staff.

Unsurprisingly this happens when we hear less from the owners.

3.) 22 Feb 2021 20:02:15
all credit to moyes and the coaching staff. rice was on talk sport this morning talking about how good the mood is within the squad and how great the coaching staff have been and also how fast lingard has settled into the team. long may it continue.

4.) 08 Mar 2021 05:41:43
We just have to battle to keep rice and build a team around him and soucek I truly believe we are a couple of very good signings away from being challenging for top 6 what are the latest rumours if you know please ed on rice and soucek leaving west ham?



25 Jan 2021 13:01:20
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.


1.) 25 Jan 2021 18:58:29
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.



16 Jan 2021 00:27:01
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.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 22:57:24
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.

Supposedly Coufal is upset at the new contract offer put to him, hopefully negotiations don't stall, we can't afford to lose him.


1.) 27 Jul 2021 07:20:49
Basically West Ham should be in control of his contact as he has 2 years left with West Ham having a further 2 year option so basically he’s got 4 years left on his contract, he’s currently on £1.6m a year, it’s a tough life!

2.) 27 Jul 2021 15:59:30
Stevie, Coufal should be offered £3m to £4m a year not a lousy £1.6m, by today’s standards, the whole world that has seen him play will know that, he’s done his apprenticeship with us, now pay him what he’s worth before another club does!
We need to retain our star players before we think about recruiting new players that may not even settle or are just Bounty Hunters that go missing when the contract has been signed and we all know who they were!

3.) 27 Jul 2021 16:51:46
Couldn’t disagree more with the above post. Coufal is 29 in 3 weeks. He won’t get a big contract at that age. West Ham plucked him from obscurity and offered him the chance to play in the best league in the world. Yes he has played well for us, for one season, but I think he should feel very grateful to West Ham Football Club. Who no doubt already pay him more per week than he has ever been paid before. The club will outlast any player, the club is always bigger than any player.

4.) 27 Jul 2021 16:57:06
Completely get it and agree but with his contract still having years to run, the club are probably not in any hurry, the player himself was happy with that contract 12 months ago, if the club had put in his contract that if he helps us get into Europe then they will offer a new contract then that’s what should happen, but he won’t leave as West Ham are in control of it basically, that’s all I was saying, but you’re right he should be up there with the higher earners, let’s see what happens.

5.) 27 Jul 2021 17:58:00
Disagree, Why this obsession with age? He’s not 35, show respect to the man, he’s world class, he could take the piss—- like Haller or Yarmelenko or Anderson or Wilshere, how many more can we name?

6.) 27 Jul 2021 18:27:12
Coufal had never played outside of the Czech League before West Ham. He owes West Ham for plucking him from obscurity. ‘World Class’ is a considerable overstatement.



24 Apr 2021 19:09:48
How can a player clearing a ball have intent to foul - crazy decision.


1.) 24 Apr 2021 19:58:46
Pretty poor I wonder what Mike Dean would have given.

Having said that we never looked like scoring today.

2.) 24 Apr 2021 21:20:40
Mike Dean? A double red, at least.



20 Apr 2021 22:22:06
Chelsea drawing with Brighton was a good result (obviously a Brighton win would have been better) . Big game coming up, 3 points would be brilliant.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 05:13:59
although the ESL seems to have been settled i wonder how of an effect it will have on those sides.



19 Apr 2021 23:05:32
Good to see Leeds get the late equaliser and prevent Liverpool going forth. Also nice to see the players warm up t-shirts.




24 Mar 2021 21:12:05
See Soucek has hit a hat trick in 50 minutes for Czech Rep. Three good goals too.


1.) 24 Mar 2021 23:14:44
The boy can play.

2.) 25 Mar 2021 12:26:34
That's another £10M added to his value. I wonder what kind of bid it would take to make Sullivan's eyes bulge.

Saying a player is going nowhere and rejecting a huge transfer bid are not necessarily mutually exclusive in the world of football club chairmen imho.

3.) 25 Mar 2021 15:14:56
I don’t think there’s a stronger DM/ CM partnership in the PL. Fingers crossed we can keep both next season.

If not, we need Kral.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 03:58:50
That's our biggest challenge in the summer keeping Rice and Soucek as I think big bids are coming for both and lingard playing the way he is will make it very tough to sign as well as pricey.

Happy for you to point out when he mentioned Oko-Flex as an example and I will show where it was in the media. Don’t get too upset if Ex is your source for info but really he is all over the place.

Agree on Lingard, it smells of Maxi Gomez. But interestingly some fans abused the owners for keeping pushing for Gomez who didn't want to come, and now abuse the owners for not keep chasing Lingard who also won't be coming. Hard for them to win isn't it?

But Bideford other than paper talk who says he wants to leave? I am happy in my job but have someone that keeps ringing me offering me more and more money, it may come a point where I can't say no. Am I happy at present, yes, would I push to leave? No, Am I searching? No. If my present company gave me another 50% would it become almost impossible for the other company, yes. The only difference for Declan is that he may also like to be chasing trophies every season, that is the intangible and why he may go anyway, we don't know. But we should be paying him what he is worth or we should expect him to go and should cash in now.

In fact testing some of that we have brought in 3 players :
Thierry Nevers (Reading)
Pierre Ekwah Elimby (Chelsea)
Armstrong Oko-Flex (Celtic)

Yes not really first team but then I could go through all the teams and many of the players that have come in are not first team. There have been less than a handful of real meaningful transfers so far (excluding promoted teams) and it will all hinge off some big move (hopefully not a Rice) like Kane which will give Spurs funds and they will snap up some players and so on. Without much revenue last season it is hard to spend unless someone like City throws a massive amount into the pool.

Iron. Al signing people and strengthening are two different things, not sure many have done much really.

We are straight into group stages so need to wait for the draw then kick off September.

As I have suggested a number of time p/ x deals rarely work unless the players want to join us. You have to have all the players want the move, then agree terms, one player on the outer maybe you can get, but when you start adding a couple to a deal it is highly unlikely.

Precisely, don’t make Lingard the next Gomez, time to move on, if he wants to leave Man U he will push it, he isn’t, so look elsewhere.

Kane is a striker who has won the golden boot the last couple of seasons. While we see great value in Rice, a proven goalscorer is worth more.

He can but I think they all can and some of the post match social media has been an absolute disgrace. I am appalled at what some people will write from behind the safety of their screen.
