Wow, sonny Perkins looking like leaving now, spurs, Villa, Everton all want him. What's going on at our club


1.) 10 Jun 2022 08:50:13
Not sure buddy but its worrying he is being allowed to leave but we have sealed a VERY quick deal for 17 year old Patrick Kelly from Coleraine who might well be a fringe player, (what on earth for, do we need fringe players but medical is planned?). Meanwhile, we mess about still haggling with AREOLA and AGUERD with no medical in sight? The way we do businesses is so confusing and concerning?

2.) 10 Jun 2022 10:36:57
Why are we willing to sell benrahma to fund moves fir broja and lingard. Do we have no money?

3.) 10 Jun 2022 15:13:50
Ed02 has been trying to tell us that we have no money but it appears nobody listens …. many clubs, as have other businesses, have been decimated financially by the pandemic and we are one of them. We might get one or two marquee signings but the books have to balanced and deals for the likes of Areola and Aguerd may take longer as finer details such as bonuses will matter. Loans to buy and frees like Lingard are more likely and everyone is looking for wonderkids to invest so the lad from Ireland is a shrewd move not just a fringe player. I’d urge anyone on here whinging about why we don't sign this player and why does it take so long have a crack at owning your own business during a pandemic ……trust me it’s not fun!

4.) 10 Jun 2022 23:45:14
Don't believe wat u read . Perkins is going but that's the lack in moyes, he don't trust youth

5.) 11 Jun 2022 13:40:37
I think we will soon see whether or not we have money to spend. If we don't spend and other clubs do such as villa (bearing in mind we finished higher in PL and had a good European run) questions have to be asked?

6.) 11 Jun 2022 16:18:21
Villa sold their best player for over £100 million and didn’t spend much of it at the time ……is that the way you want to go and sell Rice?

7.) 11 Jun 2022 17:47:51
If it improves us fir the long term project? Absolutely

8.) 14 Jun 2022 09:26:04
Hi ED is there any truth in us trying to sign FIORENTINA player CHRISTIAN KOUAMA the African striker

{Ed002's Note - Christian Kouame (S) Has had a reasonable season in Belgium and Fiorentina are unsure how he will fit in the squad next season so are willing to move him on. Could have been hit by the West Ham scattergun but it would be a significant step up. Not sure.}

9.) 14 Jun 2022 22:23:58
Cheers ed



06 Jun 2022 20:25:15
Ed, is there any truth in the rumour we've made a bid for Lewis-porter from hull?


{Ed002's Note - There is certainly interest.}

1.) 07 Jun 2022 07:03:34
Apparently numerous bids from 3 premier league clubs whilst we are certainly showing interest

{Ed002's Note - Keane Lewis-Potter (LW) Hull youngster who has attracted the interest of London sides, Brentford, West Ham and Spurs.}

2.) 07 Jun 2022 17:48:59
Looks pretty decent on YouTube (but don’t they all?)

Surprisingly good with his head for a littl’un.

3.) 14 Jun 2022 22:29:11
If you look at our transfer ins and outs in the last 4 or 5 years excluding wages we haven't spent a great deal at all so I struggle to believe we have no money can anybody enlighten me as to why we have no money getting 60,000 fans every home game I know there are a lot of corporate tickets at home games but not 20,000 as at the boleyn we got 34,000 or very near to that



12 Apr 2022 21:12:57
Just read that Moyes is keen on bringing Christian erikson to West Ham in the window? I personally would like this. Dunno if any of it is true mind


1.) 13 Apr 2022 00:37:18
He had a chance to take Erikson when Brentford got him. I doubt he will be joining now.

2.) 13 Apr 2022 12:37:11
Hmmm sounds familiar cause he also had the chance with COUTINHO but again, didn't bother. Imagine Coutinho, Eriksson and Lingaard at our gaff, with LUKA JOVIC up front

3.) 13 Apr 2022 14:53:27
Christian is one brave man, and has truly made a difference at Brentford - bring him to the Olympic!

4.) 14 Apr 2022 03:13:30
I think imagining is all we will have Mainlander

5.) 14 Apr 2022 10:58:23
Agreed Buddy. We had the chance in January and we all know how that went becauee MOYES was focussed solely on Lingaard.

6.) 15 Apr 2022 09:59:28
I can understand the reticence to take on Eriksen after his medical scare and consequent operation.

He is doing brilliantly for Brentford. Class is permanent.

But bearing in mind the risk and his age, I wouldn’t take him on.

7.) 16 Apr 2022 12:27:57
Fair points, well reasoned. Hey that Hull lad mentioned by us it it Coyle? COYleLynons#not lol

8.) 16 Apr 2022 13:00:37
Erikson - actually just 30, has had some rest too due to aforementioned incident. But otherwise of course people would be wary of signing an erstwhile dead man. lol.

9.) 17 Apr 2022 11:49:27
Too true. They say that dying ages you a tad.

10.) 18 Apr 2022 22:42:37
Hehe it is nature's way of telling you to slow down.unheeded this time

11.) 27 Apr 2022 15:40:58
Spurs or Utd after him most keenly of late, apparently of course

12.) 03 May 2022 10:10:52
Thomas Frank thinks the man will now stay at Brentford.

13.) 03 May 2022 10:34:12
Thomas Frank says he may stay but admits it's apropos of he himself being an eternal optimist. Not evidence then lol

14.) 10 Jun 2022 11:07:40
Rumours suggest Christian is not hard-and-fast glued to Brentford future. Therefore still available, and apparently being pursued.



25 Aug 2021 21:26:40
Zouma deal collapsed apparently, what a surprise.


1.) 25 Aug 2021 21:53:40
Apparently it's back on again agent being awkward. Greedy they already make a fortune of others talent, leaches.

{Ed002's Note - It was not an agent getting awkward, it was a third party representative unable to agree to a certain request of West Ham - it is difficult but can be done still.}

2.) 25 Aug 2021 22:03:29
Interesting thank you for the added insight. Do you have an idea of what kind of request?

{Ed002's Note - It is not something that needs to be explained.}

3.) 25 Aug 2021 22:08:33
Ed pardon me for being nosey, and tell me to do one if you want, but how do you know all this information 😁.

{Ed002's Note - It is really not important WH.}

4.) 25 Aug 2021 22:29:25
What % chance would you give the deal, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot realistically do that but everyone wants to get it done.}

5.) 25 Aug 2021 22:43:18
You are like the oracle dishing out the info off hand it’s great, I was just wondering if your invoked in the game in some shape or form? Tell me about you lol. 🤣🤣🤣.

{Ed002's Note - I am a gentleman adventurer and part time rodeo clown.}

6.) 25 Aug 2021 22:56:22
Thats a coincidence I'm also a part time rodeo clown in the off season, seriously though the info is great ED and very appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. Assuming Zouma can be resolved WH really need to nail down a striker.}

7.) 25 Aug 2021 23:06:44
Agreed then we can look forward to a decent season!

8.) 26 Aug 2021 06:44:45
Class Ed, class mate, cheers for info and the very small reply of mind your own business lol. Always a pleasure chief, keep the info coming……good info please 🤞🏻.

9.) 26 Aug 2021 08:12:18
What is or who is a decent striker? If they were, they would be playing first team team Football and nailed down in a contract, not many clubs would sell a decent fit striker who is not getting on in years in Football terms unless they are overloaded with talent, injury prone or desperate for £££.

Whoever, if we do get anyone will be criticised, but Moyes likes a grafter, not somebody that thinks he is a star, so it will go to the wire but I feel sure we will have a couple more in the squad before the window end?

10.) 26 Aug 2021 10:16:01
I’m not so sure in the current climate, Chelms. There are so many clubs really struggling financially because of the C.V., that there may well be “decent” strikers available. It’s all speculation.

We’ll see. Let’s see how Moyse handles the remaining days of the window.

11.) 26 Aug 2021 10:53:27
Agree Marko, it may not not be a recognised striker if we do get one, but it seems DM has an eye for potential restructuring a player if it suits them, e. g. Antonio and Arnautovic as examples?
I prefer the all round forward that can and should be weighing in with scoring, not have one who should take all the pressures of scoring or not scoring, it then makes them a scapegoat for the lack of goals!
My knowledge of overseas players is zero, I just read on here who prefers who but don’t take any notice of rumours until we see them with our shirt on! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

12.) 26 Aug 2021 13:54:04
I will be very surprised if we don’t get a back up striker/ AM in the next few days.



31 Jul 2021 12:12:52
From what I've been reading, the brathwaite transfer is a load is tosh by all accounts, but at the same time the West Brom midfielder is on the table, that was just some rumour hunting last night like. I hope this is right, brathwaite for me is a no but the other lad has got the goods I personally think.
Brentford this aft, see how we get on.

I have a question. how come there's no pictures of Declan rice in the new shirt or any training gear? Him or Bowen! Is this a bad sign? They are the poster boys of the club


1.) 20 Jun 2022 20:16:41
Maybe they were both on England duty when the photos were taken.

2.) 20 Jun 2022 20:43:45
Bowen is in the new kit reveal but as you say Rice is not. It is worrying and a little bit insidious that the club captain doesn't make an appearance. Let's just hope that when the window slams shut Declan is still a WHU player.

3.) 20 Jun 2022 21:49:29
Think were jumping the gun
The kid deserves a break was away with england last summer long season and the england duty again
Im guessing he of suning himself so can be back firing on all cylinders as i think we start early with the euro comp



18 Mar 2022 06:21:02
Well I can safely say that was the best atmosphere I've ever witnessed at that stadium, I thought the Liverpool game was good, this was something else, my mates a Liverpool fan and before I traveled down he said I can honestly say there is no better game than a European night game, oh boy was he right, it was electric, them lads put one hell of a shift in. What an emotional night, bring on the draw I fancy two days in Barcelona lol.
COYI ⚒⚒⚒


1.) 18 Mar 2022 07:42:11
Likewise buddy, what a night, the place was rocking but it was electric. Can't wait for the draw. WHat about West ham v Barcelona Final lol

2.) 18 Mar 2022 10:26:42
Must be your greatest night in your history lol

3.) 18 Mar 2022 15:26:06
The final scenario would be with us winning.lol

4.) 18 Mar 2022 18:43:47
at least we are still there raver

5.) 18 Mar 2022 19:16:54
Actually you might have heard we have won a European trophy Raver.

6.) 18 Mar 2022 20:57:47
Agree with you both got be in it to win it, I actually wouldn't mind you lot winning it as you have always had a fantastic fan base and have seen more lows than highs

7.) 19 Mar 2022 00:53:15
Cheers Raver

8.) 19 Mar 2022 09:15:17
Fair play raver. Even when we were not in it always rooted for English clubs to win

9.) 30 Mar 2022 13:10:02
Or even British or Irish in many cases - but it is not reciprocated to the English lol



27 Feb 2022 22:32:19
Did I watch a different game today because some sites are saying Bowen was 4/10, he was a dud and Moyes should drop him. Meanwhile Antonio can't hold a ball up, won one Ariel battle because the defender didn't challenge him, his passing was poor. I just don't get it. Yeah Bowen missed a couple a chance but he was no dud, he worked a lot harder than Antonio did that's for sure.


1.) 27 Feb 2022 23:56:43
Not sure where the 4/10 came from, certainly wasn't his best game, but not his worst. Antonio got a few of the type of balls I said had been missing recently, those into him that he could turn the defender and run. But, yes if the ball is played to hard to his body, he really doesn't bring it down well, it tends to bounce away, but it is also pretty hard when you have someone constantly in your back as you try to cushion the ball.

2.) 28 Feb 2022 11:13:41
Had Bowen scored with his best chance, then everybody would be singing his praises and screaming for England. He keeps getting into scoring positions and he works his socks off when defence is required.

Moyse will be pleased with his efforts yesterday even though he didn’t put that one away.

Antonio is slowly rediscovering some form. He has always been and will continue to be a rough diamond (eg balls bouncing off him) but PL defenders hate coming up against him because of his power and pace.

And of course, he made Soucek’s birthday boy goal with a very cute pass.

There will always be folk who moan.

3.) 28 Feb 2022 11:32:01
I thought overall it was a better performance all round than the last several weeks!
Think we are expecting to much of the team considering our squad is hardly bristling with players that are capable of turning matches around.

I didn't see anybody that wasn’t playing that would have been better than Antonio up front, yes he lacks ball control and passes were astray a number of times, but he was in the game and the defenders knew he was always a danger and he got the assist for Soucek.
Overall nobody stood out as having a bad game and we did beat an in form side, so for me I was happy Hammer ⚒⚒⚒⚒

4.) 01 Mar 2022 14:53:03
We also won way against the run of play! As some say - thee is nowt that would ever please some folks.

Bowen did work enormously hard but it is not to say Antonio didn't. also loved seeing Tomas back on the score sheet on his b'day; and without resorting to the tactical change we were suggesting of him "doing a Fellaini".



05 Feb 2022 15:36:36
Sorry but I would terminate yarmalenko and diops contracts, diop is crap, yarmalenko is too but it's embarrassing to have him diving around, get shot, we failed to buy which is bad enough, but play the in form kids in some positions, rather than these two. Drop the wage bill, take masuaku aswell. Give em their BFH and send em packing. Feel sorry for Kidderminster to be honest, yeah we are through but we didn't deserve it. We are going to be in a bind come summer if rice goes, we will be needing a clear out, and a big recruitment push all at once which we could have avoided had we bought a couple a players in key positions


1.) 05 Feb 2022 15:42:52
Yarmo anonymous again today - empty shirt "forwards" are costing us ultimately.

2.) 05 Feb 2022 16:13:55
The thing is though guys Moyes didn’t sign any players as there were none out there better than what we’ve got, all I can say to that is, he must be having a laugh.

3.) 05 Feb 2022 20:26:12
I just wish the reporters would ask that. Really would be interesting if they asked specifically “could you not find someone better than Diop who struggled under pressure against a 6th tier player, or Yarmalenko who constantly tried to flick the ball and gave it away 90% of the time”

4.) 05 Feb 2022 21:46:44
You've got to do the basics before the party tricks and yarmolenko can't do that what must DM be thinking as our kids are better than DIOP KRAL FREDDERICKS MASUAKU YARMOLENKO and grow a pair of biollocks Moyes and put them in what is the point in picking players out of position rather than picking a youngster who's specialist in those position DM has done well but is a one trick pony and hasn't evolved with how football is I'm afraid.



09 Jan 2022 18:57:29
We seriously need to be trying to buy or at the very least putting a bid inn for that brenan Johnson from forest he is some player, he's got bags a skill, brave and not fazed by his opponents, torchering Arsenal down the left. And their striker grabbon is a handful aswell, but that young lad Johnson Is a right player.


1.) 09 Jan 2022 22:44:32
Lewis grabbon is touching 40 years of age so possibly a tad to old previous management would have been interested.I thought the R/B was their best player Djed Spence.very pacey and solid defending I'd convert him to a C/DM as he looked decent in possession.what a result Kidderminster got drawing us in the next round a nice little earner and fully deserved.

2.) 09 Jan 2022 23:11:43
Yeah sorry Whorya, I didn’t realise how old that grabbon was, till I did a bit of digging lol, he took the goal well, and I would have to agree with the right back he had a very good game aswell. definitely a couple lads worth looking at in that team. And yeah I would have to agree with you about Kidderminster, they deserve a big pay day, just hope it ain’t a slip up for us.

3.) 10 Jan 2022 09:15:12
I think Kidderminster would be wise to swap the home advantage for obvious financial reasons, their capacity is 6,400, only draw back is the 3 hour journey for the supporters, yes it will be a home advantage, but they may not get that chance again to play in front of a 55,000 plus crowd? Big decision for the club or maybe not?

My son in law is a born and bred Forest man, but lives here in Essex now and he always tells me about the Forest team, he watches them whenever they are live and was elated with the result yesterday, ⚒’s are his second team! They have been rejuvenated under the new Manager Cooper! They have a number of really decent players and Antonio was ex Forest!
Thought their goal was a lovely executed move and Grabban at 35 was pacey to get there and stretch for the winner, albeit he was fresh from the subs bench, all in all a well deserved win for them! More blushes for the Arsenal, shame?⚒⚒⚒

4.) 10 Jan 2022 21:43:11
Loved these quotes from 'Harriers Online'

'Well that was a fun weekend wasn’t it? Now it’s back to the bread and butter of the league and a chance to close the gap on a quickly fading AFC Fylde. We all know what has happened over the past three days but for those of you that have been living on Mars then here’s an update: We only went and beat bloody Reading in the FA Cup and then we only went and drew bloody West Ham at home in the next round didn’t we.

I can’t wait to meet Alf Garnett.

That Reading game showed the world that we shouldn’t be stuck down here in this poxy National North division and so, between tomorrow at home to Farsley Celtic up to when we play Leamington on February 1st, we now have to go out to get as many points on board as we can. The team have to focus on that, and that alone, by putting all thoughts of playing West Ham to one side.'

'Although this game could appear to be an ‘after the Lord Mayors party’ type of thing it would be good to see a few more of those new supporters that came to the Reading game at Aggborough tomorrow evening. I doubt it though and we won’t be seeing them again for another four weeks.'

This stage of the cup, if they make it, is really special for these type of teams and while I get the comment about shifting it which financially would be something that could set them up for the next couple of seasons, can also understand why they may not want to.

I’m sorry but if this true this is a joke, we’ve lost noble and yarmalenko, souchek is up in the air by all accounts, and Moyes wants to bring in another 30+ year old as a replacement, it’s ridiculous on so many levels, don’t get me wrong JWP is a very good player but it’s the age, we are going backwards. I hate every minute of transfer windows with this board and the way they go about business, and Moyes isn’t helping, I mean they are saying his number one target is Lingard…. Why he didn’t want to stay, he wanted to go to Newcastle, again great player but surely the number one target should be a striker for god sake. I’m bamboozled by it all. I personally think the Brighton midfielder would have been a steal at £25m but who knows, clearly not me. Moyes needs to start putting trust in youth, he did it with Rooney at Everton, we’ve got some great young prospects but if I was one of them I think I would be looking at the door aswell.

Just read Man U don’t want to loan Lingard they want to sell him, Newcastle still Interested, as are spurs and West Ham, but Man U have no intention of letting him go to a top four rival team apparently, also Lingard is keen to go to Newcastle after they signed his friend trippier…. (he wants a bigger pay packet then)

I have to say Stevie I’m 100% with you and it breaks my heart as a fan of our club, he is a very very good player he’s proved that but if this is what he is like as a person off the pitch then me personally think it’s not what we want, it was damn right disgusting what he did. Sponsors dropped him, sponsors are slowly dropping us one by one, we don’t have the best name in the leauge, and this certainly isn’t helping, everyone including Moyes is wishing we bought a centre back now. But at the same time, I don’t know if I trust diop

08 Feb 2022 20:38:58
Totally agree mate. But on another note, why has Moyes put yarmalenko and diop on the bench again, especially yarmalenko, stick some young lads on the, at least they want to play for us




Click To View This Thread

28 Jan 2022 06:46:06
I 100% agree Bobby. The under 23’s are being put on a pedestal but he seems to want to play yarmalenko and masuaku, it makes no sense, yeah they have experience, but one doesn’t want to play and the second can’t play especially when it comes to doing his defensive duties
