The vultures are beginning to circle above Mohammed Kudus. Man Utd and Liverpool are two English clubs who have allegedly started to show an interest, with the suggestion that Man Utd would be prepared to double his salary. And that's without the likes of Real Madrid not yet joining in. We might be in for a rough tide to keep our jewel in the crown.




23 May 2024 15:39:40
Lopetegui announced officially as head coach.


1.) 23 May 2024 23:10:52
Well, JLo was not my first choice and, to be honest, I was a little sceptical over his appointment. However, having just watched his first interview, he’s certainly won me over. I’m now looking forward to the transfer window and next season. He’s so much more easy going than his predecessor, not so defensive (pardon the pun) . He’s got my support.

2.) 25 May 2024 07:59:14
The video of his first 24 hours at the club on YouTube is well worth a watch.

Any truth in the rumour that .....................


{Ed002's Note - Very, very old news. Try and find something more recent.}

1.) 10 Mar 2024 13:39:34
Rumour breaking today about Moyes’s son appointed as scout at WHU. Breaking on Newsnow, West Ham Chat for the first time. I have not previously heard it, and neither had every WHU supporter I spoke to today. Where was this “old news” previously reported out of interest please?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea where it was reported but Jr left the Wassermann agency two or three years ago to undertake some scouting activities for the club.

2.) 10 Mar 2024 13:42:23
Are you getting this rumour confused with the appointment of Tim Steidten’s brother to the scouting staff?

{Ed002's Note - I am not confused about anything.}

3.) 13 Mar 2024 06:58:56
He's been at the club for months . It's the sun as usual trying to stir things up at the club . Tevez olympic stadium bowyer signing they have form for it . Moyes is going 100% .

4.) 13 Mar 2024 11:40:17
Let's hope you are indeed right mate.

5.) 16 Mar 2024 14:50:13
In which case, I apologise to Ed002 as I was totally unaware of his appointment until it was reported recently on Newsnow and by Gonzo on Hammers Chat.

{Ed002's Note - Don’t worry.}



20 Dec 2023 14:31:01
Big rumour we are trying to sign Piero Hincapie, the Bayer Leverkusen defender. I certainly hope so. Now he is a young talent who would be a superb replacement for Ogbonna.




02 Dec 2023 12:15:39
The latest rumour on the manager front is that Steve Cooper is on the West Ham board radar. I can't believe that, other than the fact that we have a habit of lurching from one disaster to the next. Although Cooper might be an improvement on our current boring wearer of the pointed hat, there are so many far better alternative options. Fingers crossed this rumour was invented by someone who intended it for 1st April.


1.) 03 Dec 2023 17:36:47
Behave Tinlegs. Your getting more predictable than Moyes.

2.) 03 Dec 2023 19:41:16
The thing we can.predict with moyes is that the football will be garbage

3.) 05 Dec 2023 10:40:47
“Your getting more predictable than Moyes”.
Yep, I agree. I don’t do U-turns. ?

4.) 05 Dec 2023 16:44:45
Unlike the board

5.) 06 Dec 2023 21:53:14
Where do you get your rumours from?

6.) 07 Dec 2023 02:32:47
They are there for anyone to see who digs a little and does research.

7.) 07 Dec 2023 13:43:38
So, the way things are going for Forest, they will sack cooper and we will hire him

8.) 08 Dec 2023 19:37:12
Rumours are from a classic Fleetwood Mac album lol and about as up to date. Musselburgh Monster out btw!

9.) 09 Dec 2023 16:51:48
Erik Ten Hag will be available soon. How about him? Or even Roy Hodgson? There’ll soon be loads of options! ????

10.) 12 Dec 2023 07:19:22
By all accounts, Sean Whetstone is saying that Michael Carrick has been approached by the West Ham board to sound out his interest in replacing Dunce Moyes next summer.

11.) 23 Dec 2023 02:22:00
And the latest is Julen Lopetegui who is keen to return to manage a Premiership club. Apparently, he is still living in the UK. I’m not sure whether he is the right man for the job, but he’s a definite improvement over Desperate Dave. Watch this space.

12.) 23 Dec 2023 05:36:42
By all accounts, Lopetegui rejected an offer from Forest partly over a lack of transfer control. This does not fit in with WHU plans for transfer control to be in the hands of Tim Steidten. Interesting.

Major clear-out of backroom staff, including Nolan, Heitinga, Newman and McKinlay. Wow!


1.) 23 May 2024 11:00:22
I am not in the slightest bit surprised, but I am a little disappointed that Nolan has gone.

2.) 23 May 2024 18:24:11
So, it looks as though Paqueta won’t be join in ng them. He’s being charged with betting offences. No club will take him on with this hanging over him, and if he’s found guilty, he’ll probably get a lengthy ban. What a disaster.

3.) 23 May 2024 20:55:03
Toney was banned for gambling. Pacquetta's is FAR worse. He is influencing the outcome. We won't see him this season. 1 year minimum ban.

4.) 24 May 2024 03:59:08
Hang on, he’s got to be found guilty first!

5.) 24 May 2024 06:00:11
If the FA has spent nine months investigating, they must be reasonably sure of his guilt. A Lincoln City player received a 5 year ban for the same offence, yet got booked twice. Pacqueta has four bookings - career ending.

{Ed001's Note - they don't usually press charges unless they have pretty much irrefutable proof. Hence why the conviction rate is so high in FA charges.}

6.) 24 May 2024 08:20:29
They are talking very severe punishment for him to set precidence. I just wonder, if it was Kevin De Bryune would the FA have pursued this as they did? that's not to say there is any sort of BIAS, but there is without doubt different rules for different teams. Just Look at this FFP Mallarky involving Citeh and Chelski. Everton and Forest have been punished whilst the CITY and Chelsea cases drag on? Why?

{Ed001's Note - the FFP stuff is completely different. Both Everton and Forest did not contest their charges, they pleaded guilty and just presented what they believes to be mitigating circumstances. City, on the other hand, have gone through every possible, conceivable method to block any attempt to investigate them. They even refused to hand over information which they are required under Prem regs to produce. The FA then had to go through the courts to force them to hand it over, which City then appealed and continued to appeal until there were no more routes left to appeal. That alone has taken years and for me shows a severe problem with the regs in that there are no powers to punish them for refusing to hand over the documents requested. They should already have had points deducted, at the very least. Personally I think it should be an automatic relegation for refusing to hand them over. But it is City that are deliberately holding it all up because they are guilty as sin and everyone and his dog know they are cheats.

Chelsea is different again. This was a case of new ownership coming in and finding evidence of financial mismanagement and under counter payments etc, cheating in a similar way to City, basically. They then handed it in to the FA as they found it. They didn't organise it or anything or investigate it themselves, just gave it to the FA to let them deal with it. So basically the FA are having to audit the books and collate all the issues found. Then they will have to decide what charges to press. The big question then is what kind of punishment do you apply to the club when all the guilty parties have left and it was the new owners who found the issue and told the FA about it?}

7.) 24 May 2024 12:53:36
I fear this could be a lifetime ban - or as good as. We are probably sensible to write off Paqueta, and his transfer value, for the foreseeable future. A great "welcome to West Ham" for JLo. What a waste of a good player for the sake of winning a few bets.



21 May 2024 17:16:36
Why is there a delay in announcing who the new head coach is? Does this throw an element of doubt into the alleged appointment of Lopetegui? Could it be someone else? I won't be convinced it's Lopetegui until the club announce it. Maybe all these 'leaks' are designed to throw us all off the truth? And there's a strong rumour that the players have not yet been told. Very suspicious. Wait and see!


1.) 22 May 2024 07:47:44
Another day and still no announcement from the club, despite the Argyll Gargoyle’s departure a couple of days ago. In the meantime rumours increase that JLo has not yet signed amid disagreement between Tim Steidten and Sullivan, and more suitable replacements becoming available. Just what is going on, God only knows, but a senior player has allegedly declared the playing staff have not been told who the next head coach will be. Very strange.

2.) 22 May 2024 10:24:44
Very strange indeed but this is WEST HAM so why are we surprised

3.) 22 May 2024 11:04:14
Another leak which is unsurprising:
Newman and Moyes Junior both leaving the club. Both Moyes appointments.

4.) 22 May 2024 12:40:43
I’m definitely trying to give the benefit of the doubt. It’s good that Moyes the younger and Newman have gone. I’m not so sure about Ant and Cress tho. But let’s say that these deals are the only ones to be do so far because the transfer window isn’t open yet. I hope for some action early in the window but will probably be disappointed with the usual scatter gun approach



15 May 2024 11:35:31
What are the chances? The last day of the season can bring some real surprises. West Ham to ruin Man City's season by holding them to a draw or even beating them at the Etihad, with Arsenal beating Everton by a margin? Could it really happen? Of course it could. This is football! Will it happen? I doubt it. Realistically, everyone expects Man City to beat West Ham, take the three points, and achieve another unassailable championship. But this is football and major upsets have been known. For me, the Premiership crown is a sideshow. I want my team to put on a good performance to round off a terrible season. Come on you Irons!


1.) 15 May 2024 15:47:15
I totally agree with TinLegs. West Ham can always surprise you….when they should win they don’t, when they should not win they can….I hated the commentators doing Spurs v City. Totally ignoring West Ham and already giving City the championship, total disrespect for us. We can always surprise someone, probably won’t happen but I would really love us to at least get a point….having said that I would hate to see Arsenal win it.

2.) 15 May 2024 18:51:13
I’m pretty sure city will wipe the floor with us like they have done for the last few years. DMs record against the big boys is horrendous and especially against Citeh. But I have often been wrong ?

3.) 16 May 2024 12:11:36
2-0 or 3-0

4.) 17 May 2024 13:59:34
Of course it all depends how MOYES sets us up. If he sends us out to defend, city score then what? Do we open up and go for it and get picked off which doesn;t matter anyway so what do we have to lose.

5.) 19 May 2024 12:31:43
It’s a strange feeling - finally arriving at the point where one of my wishes come true. David Moyes finally taking charge of his last West Ham game. A long time coming.
Another wish of mine is that Harry Redknapp stops doing those inane radio betting ads where he uses cockney rhyming slang. Please, Harry, stop it. You might be paid well for making yourself look stupid, but it’s embarrassing to hear a former West Ham player and manager making himself appear as an East London village idiot.



30 Apr 2024 10:18:19
Reports now suggesting that Antonio will be allowed to leave on a freebie in the summer. I'm not surprised, despite his recent return to form, his record has not been great for some time, especially this season. At 34, we can only think realistically and accept his time at the club is done.
Other sources are also suggesting that it will be Alvarez and not Paqueta who will be the most wanted WHU player in the next window. I think we are in for a rough ride trying to hold onto our best players.


1.) 30 Apr 2024 13:25:05
If he's willing to accept a one year extension and his salary isn't crazy, then i really don't understand why we would let him go - As up and down as his form is, he's been a great servant for us and he works hard.

I personally see Kudus being the most in demand player, i just think he's strength, agility and speed is fantastic, it's just so hard to get the ball off of him as he uses players impact/momentum to bounce off of them. I think people could be in for Bowen as well, which i'd really hate to see.

If we're to hold onto our players, TS needs to be sitting them down now, with a plan of action, identify the next manager and explain the project that we're building. A decision must be made with Moyes, i understand that out of respect they're waiting until the end of the season, but it could be at a huge detriment to the club.

2.) 30 Apr 2024 17:27:40
I don’t see Kudus contemplating an exit strategy this year. Maybe next year, depending on how next season goes. As for Bowen - didn’t he sign a 7 year deal last year? I should imagine that could only have been after Steidten laid out his plans for the club. Several reports identifying Alvarez as the most sought after WHU player.



21 Apr 2024 12:42:48
Let's build on a "BRING BACK FLYNN DOWNES" movement. He's tearing up trees in the Southampton midfield and deserves another chance at the London Stadium, especially as it's looking more likely that his biggest critic, David bloody Moyes, is likely to be leaving the building soon. Time to save money and use properly one of our own assets.


1.) 21 Apr 2024 15:21:17
Moyes should be gone NOW! LET the new guy have a few games to see how much crap we are carrying and get rid in the summer. 15mins gone and 2-0 to mighty Crystal Palace. This is painful to watch!

2.) 21 Apr 2024 17:03:14
Dreadful result.
Regarding Downes. he’s a quality championship player.

3.) 21 Apr 2024 18:35:19
You mean like Jarrod Bowen?

4.) 21 Apr 2024 19:04:01
Downes had a go with us and isn’t/wasn’t the answer. Time to move on.
Bowen hit the ground running.

5.) 22 Apr 2024 03:51:09
Nonsense. Moyes played Downes out of position. The lad was never given a fair crack of the whip. I suppose you’d rather spend millions than utilise properly one of our own assets. You are right of course - time to move on; but Moyes, not Downes.

Apparently, Luis Guilherme is flying to London on Monday with a medical scheduled for Tues or Weds. If true, a pat on the back for Steidten.

All Premiership clubs have youth systems, but they don’t rely on them alone for young talent. To do so would be madness. Kudus may have hit the ground running, but he’s 23, not 18 - a product of someone else’s youth and development system, albeit abroad. Searching for young future talent makes good sense.

I agree with Joyful. The days of Soucek and Ward-Prowse being cert starters are over - and about time. I think they'll both struggle to get into a starting XI. Under Lopetegui, running around like headless chickens, taking free kicks and corners, and popping up to score the odd goal will not be enough.
