Dunno what truth is in it but some papers saying we r going to push for abrahm from Chelsea (apologies for the spelling) I like the kid be good if this is true. Have you heard anything ED or is just what it is, paper talk?

Whitbyhammer

{Ed002's Note - It is no more than supposition - if Abraham does not sign a new deal, if chelsea are happy to let him leave, West Ham need a striker, if there are not more attractive offers from, say, Milan etc., etc.. It is right now generally throw away stuff but it would be fair to say he will be asked to sign a contract extension but he is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch right now, which the club won't tolerate, so if he threatens to leave then the club will say yes.}


1.) 03 Mar 2021 23:17:12
Nice one Ed cheers mate.


2.) 05 Mar 2021 05:56:00
Would they want rice as part of any deal!
That would be my only concern, if we get CL then I think rice will give it another year, if not then let him leave to further his career.
We would get top money for him now and hopefully they will put money back in to transfers.

{Ed002's Note - No. Rice was always a target of Frank Lampard.}


3.) 05 Mar 2021 23:21:12
We shouldn't be banking on CL, great if it happens but still not the most likely outcome and to be fair we wouldn't sustain that level yet. We need to grow and selling Rice would not be growing as what we would buy would not replace him. If an Abrahams comes available that would be great, but I think right now Moyes knows what he needs. He clearly needs a striker, clearly needs some strong players coming through that can challenge for some of the established positions like central midfield in case we get injury but not necessarily a star who wants to play every week. We really need another left sided defender. Probably another strong keeper as Fabianski is not getting any younger. If we can get Europa League and then sustain a similar push next season I think we can say that would be ideal.


4.) 08 Mar 2021 05:38:05
Spot on Ed Abraham is a prima Donna and I'd steer clear and look elsewhere.


 

 

03 Feb 2021 22:55:00
Ed just a quick question, is there an obligation or even a chance to purchase Lingard come the end of the loan do you know? Hand on heart if it was me in his shoes at any club after being left in the cold, if I have a good six months with the club I would be telling my agent to ring Woodward and say empty my locker, Man U is not everything. But that's just me, I would love to think he had a good six months and does just that and wants to stay. That being said the whole team played well, great tactics on grealish who to me is a great player but one of the biggest cheats in our leauge, he is going down 90% of the time before the contact comes. Where I live up north u come across a player on a saturday or Sunday, he's going to get smashed for being that way out.
Sorry ED was supposed to be a quick question.
I digress 🤣🤣🤣
Great win COYI ⚒⚒⚒.

Whitbyhammer

{Ed002's Note - There is no obligation or option, but he only has a year to run and I expect they will be open to offers.}


1.) 04 Feb 2021 05:09:41
The issue is Lingard is Man Utd through and through and been there since he could walk just about, if he felt he was going to get opportunities he would still be there, he will also no doubt like the idea of playing Champions League. Let's see how he goes between now and May, one swallow is not a summer, but hopefully he continues in the same vane.


2.) 05 Feb 2021 15:02:16
He is a professional footballer not a supporter with a couple of years left to make as much money as he can - so he will come if we pay enough and he plays (which gives him a better chance with England) .

Not much point in being at a CL club if you aren't in the team.

Anyway - we might be in the Champions League next season!


3.) 06 Feb 2021 20:19:21
Well let’s hope we are CL but I doubt that.

It’s not about being a fan it’s about him wanting to play at Manchester United. As much as we would like to think differently, playing at a club like Man U, Liverpool, Man City, is appealing as it isn’t about making lots of money, he has that and knows wherever he plays he will get a reasonable salary. It will be about opportunity to play (which yes we give him) and being involved in big matches. My comment was saying if he sees opportunity at Man U it would be hard to move him, if he doesn’t see opportunity or they don’t offer him a new contract, then it will be that much easier.

But as said elsewhere, one swallow doesn’t make a summer, and everyone knows he has ability it is his commitment and drive week in week out that have been questioned. Today no-one was much good so he wasn’t alone but we saw what he can do in one game, let’s see him do it in 10-15 games.


 

 

27 Jan 2021 18:05:49
According to SSN, benrhama singed a permanent deal, £20m plus addons. Lingard in advanced talks of a £3m loan, and clubs negotiating about Hee Chan, with Moyes having the final decision wether to go ahead with the deal. Promising movement I guess, but am I right in saying if they want to loan both players must they offer Dawson a full time contract aswell then?

Whitbyhammer

1.) 27 Jan 2021 18:35:38
You can only have two domestic loans at any one time but you can still get loans from abroad.


2.) 27 Jan 2021 18:49:11
That would be my assumption Whitby as well with 2 loan deals, but the rules complicated, I have looked on Google, but more interested at the moment of having a couple of 🥃🍺before evening meal🤣😂🍺🥃⚒⚒⚒.


3.) 27 Jan 2021 19:00:12
I think the total amount of loans from an English club is 2 but can add 2 more from foreign clubs but I could be wrong.

I don't really get the lingard transfer we have lots of attacking midfielders already the loan fee is high and he's not match sharp he's barely played.

Striker should have been sorted based on Eds post below it doesn't sound to promising.

Hee chans record for Salzburg is decent but doesn't look like he's stepped up at other clubs. Very fast and works hard could be a useful addition.


4.) 27 Jan 2021 19:44:23
Think there might be an agreement of £1m loan fee for Lingard, which is less than Utd originally wanted.


5.) 28 Jan 2021 20:00:06
its still 2 players in the PL only one player from fone team i the watford owners pozzo family own 2/ 3 clubs would always have 3/ 4 players on loan from there other clubs in the EU not sure if that's changed due to brexit.


 

 

26 Jan 2021 00:05:45
Hwang hee chan from RB Leipzig by all accounts, South Korean striker who is nick named "THE BULL". South Korean, we r interested on signing him on loan till end of season, don't k ow anything of him but other West Ham fans saying he looks a good one?

Whitbyhammer

1.) 26 Jan 2021 08:31:17
Morning Whitby, I saw his name linked with us as well, but really take no notice as we all now how journalism works!
However as with Son at Spurs, they have a 2 year call up into their Military as some point, but that will obviously have been considered? I like the general work ethic in Football of a lot of Asian and Eastern European players, but that’s generalising of course! But really hope we add somebody up front to keep us pushing on👍
Slippery game tonight, won’t be able to watch it as it’s on BT, but hopefully will get it on poor mans listening🤣COYI⚒⚒⚒.


2.) 26 Jan 2021 08:59:32
I’ve read that the club is keen as his work ethic and style of play suits Moyse. The Davids are also particularly interested because it would open up merchandising opportunities for the club in south east Asia.


3.) 26 Jan 2021 09:39:33
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.


4.) 26 Jan 2021 11:30:43
Markro, The work ethic was almost certainly the reason Wilshere was limited if his claims about being fit for the last 8 months are to be believed, don’t think he ever broke into a sweat playing, he was lazy, as was the same of Haller and Anderson? Moyes was hardly going to come out to the media and tell them that! We all know Moyes won’t tolerate slackers, why should any Manager?
Merchandising is of such importance to all clubs, Son is like a God in S Korea, he is idolised also another way to claw back some of the big losses on outrageous overpriced signings of MP👎especially if we managed a Son type signing, he’s my favourite and most exciting non WH player in PL to watch⚒⚒⚒⚒.


5.) 26 Jan 2021 12:24:50
Fully agree chelms, son for me is exceptional, my boss is a Spurs fan for his sins and I say all the time I would only take one player from your team no questions asked and that’s sonny. Not sure what nationality he was but can you remember je sung park who played for Man U, he had a right engine on him, brilliant player. I for one would like this to be true, for the player and like u say the doorway it opens into the Asian market could only benefit us financially, if we aren't there already.


6.) 26 Jan 2021 14:45:04
Ok just watched some clips on you tube ok ok you tube can make anyone look good but loved the way he was 1st defender closing ball down high up the pitch
Would love us to sign a player like that seems to have an engine.


7.) 26 Jan 2021 18:03:52
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.


8.) 27 Jan 2021 16:01:06
Son has pace to burn, a cool head and makes great runs. He scores so many good goals.


9.) 27 Jan 2021 19:10:45
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.


 

 

22 Jan 2021 00:26:48
Sorry one more question, I've read today about Chelsea and frank on the verge of the elbow, but that's not what I'm getting at, I read that there's chat that mount wants to come to us to play with rice, like I say I only read it, I don't know if our board are interested or if it's possible. Please don't shoot the messenger, and I can't remember where I read it but has anyone heard anything of this? Have you Ed? It's probably crap but wow if it's true that would be nice.

Whitbyhammer

1.) 22 Jan 2021 01:28:55
I am aware they are chums from being tiny kiddies in the Chelsea Academy but am not aware of Mount saying he wants to leave Chelsea for West Ham.


2.) 22 Jan 2021 05:00:28
I doubt it. I did see a joke about Mount joining us as he wants to play Champions League and there is more chance with us, but I haven’t seen any talk that wasn’t tongue in cheek.


3.) 22 Jan 2021 07:50:44
Wow Whitby, that’s some rumour😮Not sure I can see that happening? There are some real mischievous rumours that do do the rounds, but that would really be some 2 attacking midfielders to have in your team? That would be a summer deal though?
Meanwhile would be good to get help as we all keep saying up front for Ant! I would like to see Bowen more central as he loves going for goals to help Ant, we have a decent choice of wide players! All in all we have a real decent squad! What a shame Liverpool lost last night😂🤣that shows what a decent result we had against Burnley, underrated team⚒⚒⚒⚒.


4.) 22 Jan 2021 08:34:02
I kinda chuckled myself when I read it, it kept referring back to how they are great mates and want to play for club and country together, and the unrest at Chelsea, I know it’s tabloid crap I guess but I thought I would share lol. Pigs might fly me thinks.


5.) 22 Jan 2021 10:13:17
easy lads he's priced way out of our range. Nothing wrong with dreaming though.


6.) 22 Jan 2021 21:56:45
Tammy Abrahams doesn’t play every week,? and when he played against he was sharp. £30m would probably get him. He’d be my choice.

Please don't throw this away like we did arsenal.
The money men need to be lighting the fires now behind any chance of signing Lingard.

3-0 to 3-2.


 

 

03 Apr 2021 18:53:23
Tell ya what, with Chelsea's result today, and if city and Leicester draw or Leicester lose, it certainly makes some of our up and coming games that more important, I'm sure we have Leicester After wolves and believe we still have Chelsea and Everton. This has been an amazing season for us but if all goes the way we want it over those games man this could be am unbelievable season. I'm not going to jinx it or put pressure on the lads because what ever happens is going to be a good season. Let's see how we get on on with wolves on Monday eh.
COYI ⚒⚒⚒.

Whitbyhammer

1.) 04 Apr 2021 00:51:47
Interesting 4th spot is all to play for but Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs would all fancy their chances. For me I would be more than happy with a Europa League spot but the pessimist in me still sees us ending 7th. Would still be a great season nonetheless but I hope I’m wrong.


2.) 04 Apr 2021 10:52:28
I would totally agree sdl, I am super buzzing that we are in the mixer and everyone wants their team to finish high, but I think Europa would be better for us this year and see if we can progress the year after. And if we did finish 7th I would personally be happy because who would have thought I guess the club won’t be happy with 7th. Europa and keep our top players, win win. Champions leauge and keep our top players then OMG.
The big worry for me is Declan and Thomas playing very well so the vultures will by circling, and it’s a shame we didn’t put an option to buy in the Lingard deal if it was possible. But again if we finish in a spot will Lingard want to be part of it?


3.) 05 Apr 2021 13:40:45
Rice out for 5/ 6 weeks, this makes me f——— sick and why I hate our players playing International Football😠😠😠😠⚒⚒⚒⚒.


4.) 05 Apr 2021 14:14:08
Rice/ Soucek are the heart of the team and we have been lucky with their continued fitness and form.

Noble simply isn’t up to it, but what options do we have? We need CDM cover with pace and power like Kral.

Radical I know, but Fredericks might do a decent job.

On a different note anyone heard from Chelmsford, not seen him commenting for a while?

Whitbyhammer

1.) 15 Mar 2021 10:36:59
Hello Whitby, still about mate thank you👍To be honest it gets a bit tiresome just replying to other’s posts especially if it’s just to disagree! So still reading the posts but not getting involved in the comments!
Thought Moyes decision to start Noble was a wrong decision for me last night, he is hardly a colossus that stamps his presence on the game, it was to me holding up the white flag and showing we were preparing to be intimidated? We weren’t offensive enough imo. Hope all the posters are well👍👍⚒⚒⚒.


2.) 15 Mar 2021 11:30:37
Glad your ok Chelmsford. Yeah it was a kind of roll over and tickle the belly set up for me. I like Moyes I do but he won’t admit when he gets it wrong. Commentator asked him if he would change his set up if he could restart the game. NO was his answer. 🤨 strange fellow.


 

 

09 Jan 2021 12:47:26
Good day to you gents and ladies if there is any on here, just read an interview with haller and he has openly admitted that he didn't adapt to the one the game over here and two to the team set up and style of play, also that it made sense for both parties for him to move on, that he knows the coach and league and now Moyes can bring in the right players for him and the team. So maybe he wasn't that bad of a bloke, it's a shame he couldn't have been a pro and adapted but not everybody does we all have seen that throughout many teams not just ours. I for one am glad he has gone for himself and the team and I mean that in the most respectful way, I hope he does well I really do. I'm very interested what Moyes does next. I think there could be a good chance that arnie might be brought back, so al say this I did like him as a player especially when he was put up front, he did a right job for us. Don't get me wrong I hated how it ended and his brother is a total twit for being a greedy so and so. So if he did come back then I hope it's the guy that we all loved but then again people say ya should never go back. So on that I hope Moyes does the right thing am se he will, I e said it before maybe it's time to recall silva back
(if we can, and I hope that's his name 😳)
COYI ⚒⚒.

Whitbyhammer

1.) 09 Jan 2021 13:19:28
If Arnautovic could regain the form he once had for us, he could do a great job.

There’s a lot of media speculation about multiple striker targets. We’ll just have to wait and see what Moyse and the club can get done.

Sooner rather than later would be good though, as Antonio (great as he is when fit) is only one wonky sprint away from an extended holiday on the sidelines. Where would we be, then?


2.) 09 Jan 2021 17:13:45
I liked Arnie when he ain’t to criticize him because if some offered me 3/ 4 times my wages I was currently on I’d be in a taxi.


 

 

25 Sep 2020 21:29:20
Hi Ed, sorry to ask mate but is there any legs in this rice scenario that you know of?

Whitbyhammer

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know what this scenario is.}


1.) 26 Sep 2020 12:53:11
If he actually was going to ask to leave do you believe he would go tell people first Whitby? Maybe a close friend, a person he trusts, but not the media. It is all speculation and maybe all planted by Chelsea if I was to be completely cynical to try to cause unrest.


2.) 26 Sep 2020 14:01:39
Sdl, I don’t believe anything in the papers until I see it for real, they all talk rubbish. I just thought if anyone has an idea it would be Ed he’s been spot on so far.


3.) 27 Sep 2020 02:47:52
Fair enough Whitby, and rightly so. I personally believe, without any evidence, that these type of stories are planted by the club looking to buy to unsettle the player or to try to get the club that owns the player to be ready to deal.

Ive just read that Lingard is all for the move to West Ham. Also the father in law showed me a piece saying that Moyes/ the board were looking to use balbuana to get a young promising keeper, it was only a heading though so didn’t see the rest.
Ed is there any idea if Dawson is going to get a contract with us do you know?

Whitbyhammer

{Ed002's Note - They must of recently had the conversation about sending Dawson back (expensive), signing Dawson (cheap) or signing Benrahma (future debt). If you had asked me at the start of the month I would have said the would bite the bullet and send Dawson back to Watford. The implication is now that he is playing regularly and everyone seems happy with him then it would make sense to take up the option and sign him at the end of the season. Financially it makes sense.}

Cheers Ed, I’m not to sure on a king deal, especially as you say short term, I hope they go for someone for long term.

Whitbyhammer

{Ed002's Note - I don't know why more effort has not been in to what was the preferred option of Moussa Marega who can sign a pre-contract now. With Milik moving to Marseille the pick of the players they have been looking at is Boulaye Dia - but there is a great deal of interest in him. He could certainly add something to West Ham's attack.}

Totally disagree Bobby, lanzini is nowhere near the player he was since his injury, as for benrhama bringing nothing to the table, I don’t understand that fair play he ain’t the best defending but going forward he’s got it when he gets going. Benrhama should be on that sheet before lanzini hands down. For me when your playing a team like arsenal and your 3-0 and cruising u keep going for more that’s the hunger of the game, they must have been told to back off by the coaches, but saying that they are professionals and should easily be able to switch it back on, the Lingard decision was shocking to be fair the way he’s been playing chances are he would have at least got a shot away. Antonio was right on the studs with the stretch but yeah in fairness he should be putting them away all day long, and two or three times he tried an impossible rubbish instead of passing the ball on but that’s something he does a lot. I for one am disappointed but what can you do.

Propa pissed off with Moyes tonight he did it last time we played them and he did it against Liverpool, he can’t say on one hand why can’t we make top four then on the other hand go into a game against Utd with his tactics of trying to win a game on a set piece, because that’s what he’s set them up to do.

Different game when we changed it round and yeah we could have been battered 2,3,4-0 because the counter was on more for them but at least we would have taken it to them. As a fan am pissed of with it, it’s like he’s scared of the big names or to respectful, yeah we may be punching above our weight going for top four but if we r up their in the mixer why not go for it, going in to this game two games in hand on Chelsea three points behind and maybe a goal difference of six, he should taking the game to em.

Utd weren’t great tonight and yeah we were lucky in the game but for god sake Moyes have some belief in the players we have, I personally do t blame noble at all he isn’t the player he was he made a few mistakes but wasn’t terrible, Johnson was bad from the start he needed to settle down.

Just annoyed really, it’s a good job the fans weren’t their I tell ya that now. He needs to stand in front of the mirror and give his head a shake. Bad bad tactics Moyes sort yaself out. Don’t get me wrong if we got in the top hal comfortably I would have been happy but think on the way we have played this year we are good enough to challenge for Europe, champions leauge. no we aren't ready, but if we are up their now then why not give it a go.
Sorry for the long rant people.
