Does anybody know what is the hold up on this Haller deal?, by all account he passed a medical yesterday and have had no news of a Press Conference or anything on this. I know I probably being impatient but I do get worried when it comes to us and major transfers.

I thought if he went for a medical everything is sorted, unless i'm wrong. any update Ed 002 please?

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - Paperwork has to be done, international clearance applied for and obtained, etc.. There is no hold up.}

1.) 17 Jul 2019 13:19:05
Haller has appeared on the video for our new third kit!

2.) 17 Jul 2019 11:29:33
Thanks Ed002, at least you didn't say there is a hiccup as another team has bid for the player.



08 Jul 2019 08:37:31
I hope Noble made the Austrian baby pick his toys up and put them back in the pram before he left, we don't want anyone tripping over his dummy and getting injured!

As posted above i'm unsure about Gomez, he wants CL football and to be honest his not going to get it at WH, maybe they will sell him the so called project ( how much longer can they sell a project, is this Crossrail? ) and whack a massive buy out clause and be willing to let him go next year if CL is not achieved. i'm unsure the point in that but MP does know what his doing, so we have to trust.

With Baby boy gone and expect Hernandez to go if we do get Gomez who else is on the radar as a striker?, I think he wants a Carrol like striker as in Rondon, but that still leave us short upfront. Antonio is not bad a a make shift but he can not be added to a striker list before the season starts, unless they will keep Hernandez but I thought they were trying to off him to Valencia to clear the way for Gomez.

Have I missed some news somewhere?, if we are going to try push this season for a Europa place I would have thought we need at least 3 strikers and decent ones at that. Can anyone advise me please as all I have really heard is Gomez, or a replacement for Gomez if we don't get him.

the statement is pretty blunt haha.

2.) 08 Jul 2019 10:35:50
Ed002 has given a few names. EXWHUemployee on twitter has given a few too.
Rondon was looked at, Gomez, Belotti and supposedly Ballotelli. Who knows though, most of these guys want european footy which we cannot offer.

Mike, Ed002

I wonder if you could explain the situation with transfers from abroad once the UK leave the EU, am I right in saying at the moment if a player is from a EU nation he can just move to an English club no problem but if from outside the EU needs a work permit. Once the UK leave will all players coming in from abroad require a work permit?

I could be totally wrong on the above and would appreciate some guidance.

Warrington Seymour

{Ed002's Note - A good question and the final answer has yet to be determined, but right now it goes something like this:
- If the player is an EU citizen he is allowed to work in the UK without the need for a Work Permit or Visa under the provisions of the treaty covering free movement.
- This also applies to uncontracted players under the Bosman Decision.
- Players from outside the EU need Government Body Endorsement and a Work Permit and the rules are stricter than they were (see at the end).
- There are different types of Work Permits available and typically two apply to footballers. Tier 2 means that the player can stay in the UK with a two year extention if they have 70 immigration points (which requires an FA endorsement, 10 for providing proof he won't be a strain on the state and 10 for the command of the English language (important). A Tier 5 WP only lasts a year where failure is on the English language test. It allows him to play and then master the language, sit a test and then apply for Tier 2 WP. Extensions can be provided to the length of contract.
- Moving forward post Brexit there is no decision but it has been discussed. One idea on the table is that any new application for EU citizens to move to the Premier League or move between PL clubs) will be the same process as for non EU players, and that players already at PL clubs will be given an exemption for the length of their existing contract.

The Work Permit requirements:

The player needs a minimum of four points and summary goes something like this:
- The value of the transfer fee (alone) that is to be paid is between the top 75% and 100% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 3 points
- The value of the transfer fee being paid for the player is between 50% and 75% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 2 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is in the top 25% of the top 30 earners at the club - 3 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is between 50% and 75% of all the top 30 earners at the club - 2 points
- Subjectively, the player’s current club is in a recognised "top" league and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point
- The player’s existing club has played in the group stages or onwards of the Champions League, Europa League or the Copa Libertadores within the last 12 months and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point

1.) 20 Feb 2019 11:57:00
An excellent explanation but as I mentioned last week I’m sure a good proportion of this is going to change, so won’t be relevant / maybe not too radically at the end of this season, , but it will over the course next 2/ 3 seasons The FA will ring the changes, NOTE, Man City are already looking for more U. K. talent, and they will drive up the prices, of Home grown lads. IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure what won't be relevant. Many of the clubs are looking to HG players to bolster the squad but this results in prices rising sadly.}

2.) 20 Feb 2019 12:22:37
Goodness Thanks Ed 002, very informative and in depth and much appreciated.

Now for my 2nd question albeit in theory.

When leaving the EU and its regulations, if the Premier League or FA wanted to ( massive if), could they bring in a rule where as only a certain amount of non UK players can be in a squad?,

Basically what i'm getting at could they go back to the days when I think only 2 foreign players were allowed in a team. Obviously this won't happen but I just wanted to know if they wanted to could they as no longer under EU Working Law.

{Ed002's Note - They will not look to change the rule in that way and it won't be related to non-EU players, but they may look to increase the HG quota from 8 to something else (12 has been proposed). The means the non HG quota would reduce to 13 and they would also have to amend the rules as some of the HG quota will be EU or even non EU (rest of the world) nationals (e.g. Nathan Ake is HG but an EU national.}

3.) 20 Feb 2019 13:11:28
Edd002 note, bloody hell Ed, well done for the info on Warrington’s post👍Think I would have been inclined to say, no idea, look up for yourself😂🤣 Understood some but, became a bit complicated for me, but they pay their own people good money to sort it out! I ‘m only interested in who WH, sign not who they can’t sign! Looks like we could have some favourites back in again on Friday from injury, so that will be very interesting, if Lanzini gets on, he will get some ovation from the Stadium, what a massive miss he has been. Don’t want to tempt fate, but should be 3 points for us here⚒⚒⚒⚒COYI.

Awesome work. Thanks Ed.

6.) 24 Feb 2019 12:23:49
Just a thought on the potential requirement for more HG players - if fewer superstars can be in the PL and its quality, by definition, goes down, I wonder if tv rights will be less attractive and packages will suffer.



15 Jan 2019 14:23:58
I just read a report Hernadez has agreed personal terms with Valencia for £140k a week, apparently this is reports from Sky Italia.

It says noting about a transfer fee or mush else, is this just usual BS from bored journalist with no that have sweet FA to write about?

Warrington Seymour

1.) 15 Jan 2019 15:43:53
If Arnie and hernadez do go that will bring the wage bill down
Through Antonio up front
Should leave enough in the pot to bring in a striker and cm.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 20:03:19
Moussa marega would be my choice.



01 Oct 2018 08:45:30
Well Well Well, it looks MP has finally got his system right and the players to carry out his plan. I was as many on his back and thought it inevitable the writing was on the wall for him and his staff, perhaps DS can use the compo money put aside for MP and his staff and pay Rice what he is worth.

I thought Fabinski was brilliant, he looked safe and assured, as was most of the players.

Have we employed a surgeon does any one know?, It looks like Zabba and Nobbs have both had leg transplants there were brilliant Rice is getting better and better and Arnie was superb leading the line.

A personal apology from my end to MP as I honestly thought he had lost the plot, congrats to those on here that did say give him time and stuck to their guns.

We now look like we have a system and we ARE looking good, i'm not getting carried away but this season maybe we can use to bed in with this new system, it will confirm to MP what players he can move on and more excitedly what new players to bring in to suit his style. could this be at last the move forward we were promised?

Before anyone shoots me down, i'm not getting carried away after 3 brilliant results, but I can see a style of how he wants to play for the future and it looks exciting. long may it continue.

Warrington Seymour

1.) 01 Oct 2018 10:54:57
Well said Warrington. I voiced my concerns a while back on this
Yay - We're brilliant, great appointment, great signings - excited
Then overnight
Rubbish - Manager is past it, terrible signings, sack everyone, usual Hammers doom and gloom again
Yeah of course I was worried after first few games, but I did really hope that it was really just a matter of time to settle down, find a system, lots of new signings from abroad etc.
Yeah as a Hammers fan I'm used to false dawns and lack of ambition but also I have patience. Not got excited much since 1986, so I'm pretty easily satisfied.

2.) 01 Oct 2018 13:47:55
Question of course now is where does Wilshire fit in after his injury?

3.) 01 Oct 2018 14:26:58
I have to agree with you all, future looking exciting however my worry now is that we have had a few more long term injuries so look pretty exposed if the likes of Rice, Obiang, Noble get injured, any suggestions who you think would replace those three if they get injured.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 17:54:03
I think Obiang and Noble doing so well infront of Dec is a blessing for us in terms of Jack. Firstly, we need more then two players who can play in those 2 CM positions to have a good season. Secondly, MP seems to have settled for a NATURAL DM in a 3 man midfield, which is perfect for JW to flourish, as it has done for Noble and Obiang's games. Thirdly, he has genuine competition for his place now so he needs to motivate himself to get back in and then keep his place.
Im interested to see where Snodgrass plays in the future. Seems the wing is not quite right (pace? ), and we have some good yougsters there. Maybe a more central role where is effort (great vs UTD) and passing is well suited.
My worry is Sanchez injury, we could be screwed if Dec gets injured. Who else plays there? Zaba? Already proved Noble and Obiang cannot do it.
This 11 is looking good, but the punch comes when we get injuries. I want Lanzini back! Word goes out to Antonio, think he has been better as a CF than on the wing, he is physically a handful there and was lucky not to have 2 vs Chelsea.

5.) 02 Oct 2018 08:04:09
Its all about a squad Nickinho, its inevitable that injuries will occur and missed games through yellow cards accumulation but as I mentioned above MP seems to have a certain way of playing as in a system and style,

You could even see that about the way the fringe players played against Macclesfield, ( i'm not talking about the result or how low MACCS are i'm talking about a tactical system on how the players were playing) so he must be involving all players on the training pitch and drilling this system in

We will have to see how we react when we need to replace a player . but we do have good players and will flourish under MP, this season for me is a bed in, let's get our feet under the table and than maybe next season start really to push and see where we go.

We are going to drop points against so called lower teams, we may get hammered against a couple of teams BUT we are starting to have a way of playing and this has been evident in the last 4 games, I am a little excited for the future now,

I honestly can not believe i'm typing this, 3 weeks ago I was having sleepless nights of Big Scam coming back :~)

6.) 03 Oct 2018 12:09:47
That could be a master stroke ZABALETTA at CDM or MASUAKU or FREDERICKS could play there if desperate. COYI.

7.) 03 Oct 2018 12:52:47
Sorry Whorya, but Masuaku cannot defend, great going forward but as a defender your first job is to defend. He just cannot defend!

8.) 03 Oct 2018 14:36:43
It is so tough to have a top quality squad of players these days, with strength in depth in all positions, especially for teams outside the top 6, funds are just not there given the huge fees on players and agents these days. Credit goes to the managers when they get the balance right. What is more important, a stand out player at £40m who could be hit and miss, or even get injured, or a decent squad of players to compete with each other? I suppose it depends on the base squad you already have, and the total funds you have, but it is a tough balance to get right each window.
To compare the cost of our "squad" of defensive players to Man City's, the total transfer fees we have paid for our whole defensive group of players (2xGK, 4xCB, 2xRB, 2xLB and 2xDM) is £61.6m (from transfermarket) . Man City paid £58.5m on Laporte alone! The total cost of our starting 11 vs Man Utd was £118m, while Pogba and Fellaini alone cost them £124m.
I think our transfer business this summer is proving to be great.

9.) 05 Oct 2018 09:31:34
Philmac, Regards your 1 October post,
where is Wilshere going to fit in after injury, my answer is, he simply won’t fit in anywhere and we honestly shouldn’t have had the problem as we shouldn’t have signed a crock! I have a very low opinion of him, a number on here rate him, I don’t, he’s his own biggest fan👎Thought I was in the minority, however looking for team news tonight, a related article by Tony Cascarino slated the signing saying "he was flabbergasted he was given such a lucrative contract given his poor injury record, he was a vanity signing, also WH have looked so much better without him and he is not suited to today’s Premiership standards due to fitness" etc.

Also he’s not the only ex pro to state that, our ex Dean Ashton had severe doubts about Wilshere, he was excellent maybe up to a couple of years ago, but not now, frightened to run and get tackled in case of affecting a reoccurrence! Massive waste of financial resources!

10.) 05 Oct 2018 16:34:28
Fair play Chelms, you have stuck by your opinion of JW. And as a Hammers fan I am sure you equally hope he proves you wrong and turns out great for us. What fan wouldnt.
Tony Cascarino was a bit unfair IMO. Saying West Ham have been better without him was a bit short sighted. Its true that we have been better since his injury, but unfair to suggest the improvement was because of Jack's absence. In those first 4 games NONE of the players (with the exception of Fabianski) were particularly impressive, and all the players were tactically adjusting and getting to know each other. People layed into Rice after the Liverpool game when he played DM, look at him now. I hope/ think Jack will be equally as good or even better than Noble and Obiang so long as Dec continues his fine form in DM.

11.) 05 Oct 2018 17:09:46
Nickino, that’s a very fair and honest assessment you have posted, you must be a very fair and patient man👍I don’t think it at all fair myself when well known personalities hang others in public knowing that possibly millions will read them, hopefully my own comments on JW is only read by a very small amount of people. As you say I would love JW to make me look a real mug and turn into a great signing🙈🙈will be nervously watching tonight hoping we can carry our form over to the Amex stadium tonight👍COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Can’t believe an international footballer playing for a top side can be so bad . He doesn’t run, he can’t pass and I have yet to see him tackle .
Did the person responsible for him signing also sign Perez? If so was he drunk, and is he still in Employment?



17 Jul 2019 13:15:43
Its done absolutely brilliant news, its a very very good signing, now let's get a move on and get a couple more in before the window shuts.

Warrington Seymour



17 Jul 2019 09:55:37
Cross fingers Haller will be announced soon, I still think we need another striker maybe 2, i'm just wondering if its worth keeping Herndaz for the season and suffering letting him go on a free next season. I have read a little about Haller and he has an all round game, pulling defenders out and collection deep, i'm just wondering if we may be over looking we already have the perfect fit for Haller already in the squad.

Even so I feel we still need another striker or 2, Sturridge on a free is a no brainer but his injury problems are a worry. and he we go I know i'm going to get pelters but I go for Balotelli his free, OK his trouble but no one can doubt his ability, if we get haller and keep Hernandez than I would go for him on a free on a year contract and see where we go,

Warrington Seymour

1.) 17 Jul 2019 11:14:17
Alfredo Morelos and or Maupay for me. We should invest in younger talent, Sturridge and Balotelli are too risky there is a reason they are available on a free. Haller will be such a coup massive part of Frankfurts success all our attackers will have a field day feeding and playing off him. he's not signed yet will be refreshing my news feeds half hourly untill he does.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 11:28:21
Iron i'm refreshing every second, its like were 1 up in injury time in a game and just waiting the final whistle, I hope we don't concede :)

3.) 17 Jul 2019 11:52:53
Maybe another striker but we still need a DCM and LB if we are going to really compete IMO.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 12:12:16
I think looking at what MPH want to do and how they want to develop the squad, Hernandez’s wages are an issue. I agree that he could be great alongside Haller, but we need a back up, in case of Haller illness, or, God forbid, injury. Hernandez has shown he cannot be a spearhead.

I imagine that Hernandez has also had discussions with MP about playing time and been told that he will not be first choice up front, hence his noises about being elsewhere this window.

What videos of Haller show, is that not only can he score, but he frequently assists and this means that he will bring our attacking midfield far more into the game than Hernandez can, or indeed than the Austrian did.

For me Hernandez leaves and we look for an up and coming, powerful front man as back up for Haller.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 13:27:15
Arney who?! Frederick's staying fit could be important to hallers service from what I've seen of him he puts in very dangerous crosses and runs with pace at defenders. wouldn't besuprised to se that combination.



09 Jul 2019 21:17:59
Is it that big of a shock Gomez goes to a CL team. He said all along that's his preference, the problem is IMO is that unless we have positive negotions in the fire already, clubs will pick up we may be desperate and so the price soars let's just hope we have had the insight of back ups in case of this scenerio.

Morning All

Joe Allan, well his a tidy player but is he not the same kind of player as Noble?, I appreciate if MN is injured we do suffer a little and I suppose for £8m in today money he would not be that bad a acquisition as a squad player, I can understand why some think it would be a move backwards, but we have to be realistic about things, we are in a no better position than we were 4 years ago under Bilic, we have not progressed if anything gone backwards.

Im not a Moyes fan BUT if he can steady us i'm willing to give him 3 years to see where we are, No one will get near Liverpool for the next 5 years, Man C will be the nearest challenger and can see Arsenal under Arteta progressing and obviously Leicester, but IMO apart from Liverpool and Man C its up for grabs for 3rd 4th etc, and sometimes having a so called super manager is not answer especially when your on a budget as WH and the cost of players,

So if Moyes recruitment is not the so called wonder players but steady professional who know the game and more importantly know the PL that may be our way forward, as well of course of integrating our promising young players, He has a decent squad of players who can all score and play, its getting the balance right with flair and good old fashion defending. Any Comments?

Morning All,

Rice is class but I think now he needs to add more to his game, IMO he has more ability to what he is actually showing and although his comfortable on the ball I feel he is hesitant to push up and, he seems to give it sideways or back far to often, Moyes should encourage a more dominant role, I have seen glimpse of him start to take a more prominent role when pushing up but not enough, I appreciate its been hard for him to do nothing but defending to way we were playing but just want to see more improvement, hopefully DM will give him a little more freedom

I don't want him to be another Eric Dyer who frankly IMO has just gone backwards.

I suggest Hardcore, that WH representatives pop to Boots and buy a Black and Blue inked pen and get straight to the City Airport.

While they are doing that book a medical hospital where ever Hallers is right now in the World and fly the medical team out.

If they want £40m give them what they want and offer Hallers and his family free day passes to Peter Pans Playground in Southend, with as much Jellied Eels they can eat until his contract ends.

This guy is a top top players and in my view is a game changer for us.

Here we go again, I for one are sick and tired of all of this, I saw nothing absolutely nothing yesterday that will get us out of trouble, if we lose Antonio than my friends we are f*****, so what is the answer? . Sorry I don't have one anyone? .

The saving grace is that the we do have players we can shift for decent amounts which would cover the Premier money we would lose if going down, plusd a parachute payment, the fans will still turn up in championship if doing well, so if the worse case scenario we can flog a few who want to go and keep a core who want to see the club back and invest in decent experienced championship players

I can't believe i'm even typing the above but for what I saw yesterday if we don't improve and sharpish it will become a reality and we are back to square one.

I always said MP for me had a free hit last year, this year i'm so disapointed we are slow predictable, and he keeps playing 1 up front which drives me crazy, why on earth did he buy Haller if not to play to his strengths, my opinion is swaying with MP, I don't see any progression i really dont.

I personally am getting a little worried, we don't seem to have drive and our football is far to slow, Haller needs to be fed more and he will score but sometimes the midfield is to deep, I don't know what's happening but something isn't right, I agree no need to panic but the football for me to to predictable, to slow, and i'm not sure how MP is getting his message over as for me certainly not working at the mo.

The Palace game we should have been well ahead at half time, the Everton game as to be one of the most Lack lustre games I have seen from the players for quite a while, we have a few tricky games ahead and we need to pull or socks up and quickly.

Hi Tim W, welcome to the site, its a roller coaster but brilliant fun, Haller and Fornells 2 great signings, still think if Hernadez wants out than at least 2 more strikers needed, in fact if Hernandez stays still 2 more strikers needed. I don't think were be after another DM this window, we have Rice, Sanchez, and Noble can do a shift.
