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.




21 Jul 2021 18:32:09
Also just read that Chelsea are still wanting Declan rice and are looking at a cash and player deal to get him, that player being Tammy Abraham. I for one hope he stays but what can we do accept offer him more? I hope Bowen to Liverpool is a non starter because I think he is an exceptional player, but I did read mid way through last season that klopp really rates the lad. Someone mentioned the West Brom duo, keeper Johnson and the midfielder can't remember his name but he's a good player too, as for Johnson he's quality, I watched him for England when they played Romania in a friendly and he was very good, wasn't he the Keeper with the most saves in the prem at the end of the season. And yeah agree with you all, forget Lingard that ship has sailed, if he wanted to come to us he would have pushed it himself.


1.) 22 Jul 2021 16:59:16
Marina Granovskaia seemingly is going to Offer Tammy Abraham and cash for Rice.

2.) 23 Jul 2021 15:00:09
i think Tammy Ab. and cash will work if Dec wants to leave. We all want him to stay but what will be will be We must keep the faith with Moyes.
Abraham and Pereria from W. Brom would sweeten the loss of Dec. and hopefuly Johnson from West Brom.
Moyes is buying good young prospects which i do agree with.
What do u guys think?

3.) 23 Jul 2021 15:39:51
If you believe what the tabloids say, it seems that all roads point to Declan Rice leaving for Chelsea. The board and Moyes must already have a good idea whether or not he is likely to be with us next season or not so I would hope we are looking at a replacement for him. If its going to be Chelsea apparently Berkely and Abraham have been linked with us so if we can get them both plus cash then do it, it fills a position of great need for us. It would also be refreshing to see us make moves on one or both keepers we've been linked with.

{Ed002's Note - WHU have looked at replacements but would rather not sell. If he contunies to reject contract offers and formally requests a move (saving WHU 5% of any transfer fee, then he could leave. WHU have already signed one young DM (from Chelsea) and, as has been explained before, Ellyes Skhiri and Alex Kral provide very good options; Amadou Diawara, Sanfer Berge and Harry Winks possibilities but I think if there is a surprise coming, Yangel Herrera might be a very good buy for the club.}



21 Jul 2021 06:05:28
Paper talk this morning suggesting that the two Daves turned down £400m for the club recently and that we've made a £600k bid for rangers wonder kid. 🤷‍♂️
Thought I'd give you that because not hearing nowt else except we can't afford anything.


1.) 21 Jul 2021 07:31:02
Morning Whitby👋That’s all we seem to do is buy youngsters, we need experienced players to start ASAP for the new season! With the odd exception, none of our other youngsters seem capable of making the next grade to the first team and making the transition! But there must be work going on behind the scenes, DM is no mug, but he can only spend what he is given!
Bit worrying that he has openly said he has ambitions to manage the Scotland National team, how long before they get fed up with not qualifying for anything and approach him! I think he is a loyal man, but may be off at the earliest opportunity if the offer to manage his National team arose? âš’âš’âš’âš’.

2.) 21 Jul 2021 09:51:04
Yeah, we've been here before buying youngsters, remember XANDE Silva and a few others that never got into the first team squad. I do think we should forget Lingard cause Its quite clear (after all summer chasing one player. AGAIN! ) that Ole don't want to lose him. We have to be looking elsewhere and making firm moves.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 23:47:28
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?



26 Jun 2021 23:41:01
Paper talk saying Man U have offered Lingard a 3 year contract 🤷‍♂️
Villa making a £40m bid for Abraham from Chelsea 🤷‍♂️.


1.) 27 Jun 2021 08:36:56
It's lingards boyhood club I can understand his decision if he was to stay at man u or come to us, 40 Mill is too much for Abraham, of course they are only paper rumours anyway.

2.) 27 Jun 2021 12:08:24
The prices being report are crazy
I like abrahams but is he a £40m player?
I really don't see it hope i'm proven wrong were ever he ends up
And with lingard if man u give him gametime why would he move but if not then let him go he looklike he was really enjoying his football for us.

3.) 15 Jul 2021 23:00:55
I know a few people up north and rumour has it is that lingard got in with the wrong crowd and a move was best for him but how true we will never know but something tells me its codswallop especially if he's going back to UTD.

Hi lads down at the game, frustrated? It's difficult to say, I here what your saying but you can't push to much with what Utd have on the counter. As for the pen I agree rice a player on the pitch should have taken it, rice had the ball and was ready but on the other hand nobles record is immense, and I tell u now, everyone in that stadium was buzzing at that change so in my opinion Moyes should step forward and take that one. It was a good pen, it was was right to the side but at the same it was at a good height for a good guess, we played well, Lingard a goal was a good taken goal but fabianski faltered for a good five mins leading up and for the goal, he wasn't commanding enough. As a fan we played well and for 90% of the game we were the better team, yes we didn't close down enough but you could see the reason for that. Respect to Lingard no celebration. Revenge coming Wednesday mark my words.
Yarmalenko for me is done he did a good few passes but was shown up by the lads who played all game, work rate was poor. Hand on heart a draw was the right result.


1.) 20 Sep 2021 01:47:08
I'm not blaming fabianski for the loss but I agree with Whitby he's not a presence or commanding enough I think its time for AREOLA to be given the chance to be our no1.

{Ed002's Note - I think that is a fair comment. It is always difficult with GKs.}

2.) 20 Sep 2021 08:05:28
Imo DM should forget about Noble in the playing and the Captaincy business! He is yesterday’s man, great servant and club man, he still has a big part behind the scenes to play, but that’s all! Rice is the Captain, end of story! MN is not Mr Big at WH, DM is the Manager, Rice is the Captain, treat Rice with respect, he is the future, not Noble!

I think it was undermining Rice as the on the pitch Captain to stroll on and take the ball from him, even if it was DM’s decision, that’s bad management showing a lack of trust in everybody else?
Noble would have puffed his chest out had he scored, but he should have been man enough to admit he shouldn’t be taking it just coming!
Of course it would have been the right decision had he scored, butt he didn’t, so they should both take the flak for the that!
It was a crap penalty, those in easy reach a yard off the ground is easy to save when the Keeper goes the correct way, most Keepers are well over 6 ft so no probs stretching,
Also agree that Areola should now be given the chance of stepping up in place of Fab, not because Fab had a really bad game, but simply because we need a younger number 1 Keeper now, I thought that was the purpose of Areola coming in, he could have stayed at PSG as number 2?

I still rate DM but he needs to be prepared to be more open minded in his thinking of selections and prepare some of the old guard to start stepping down?
Overall I think we played decent against a team that are superior, so no complaints at all otherwise apart from the Noble business, just sort the penalty taker out DM!, ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

3.) 20 Sep 2021 08:42:46
Fair comment Ed its a difficult one but when i look at Fabianski in our goal he looks tiny i ain't going to slate him as he's done very well for us but just this season i have my doubts and i would give AREOLA a chance like i said.

4.) 22 Sep 2021 10:28:40
Benny scoring versus the great Utd and no points as an outcome is bound to deflate us lads here. onwards and upwards Antonio is playing later on.



05 Sep 2021 06:21:10
Am getting pig sick of hearing about Declan rice looking for a move away fro champions league football, sick of hearing about how he won't sign a contract without a release Claus. I'm sorry, I love the guy but he needs to walk before he can run, not saying it's going to happen but hope it will, but what if we have an amazing season in all competitions (wishing) what then? What if we finish above the sides he says keep touting him, what then. It could be paper talk I don't know. He's playing well for England but surely that has a lot to do with our club and the amount of trust we have in him and game time he's getting. I really thought he was going to be the new mr West Ham, how wrong I was.


1.) 05 Sep 2021 08:24:19
Whitby, I agree mate👍 It’s all about the Declan Rice show it seems, it’s the media unfortunately that inflames these situations as they need to write articles on the game, it’s an easy story to write and create some fuss about!
There is obviously a lot of truth in them as he doesn’t actually seem to want to deny them, which is a positive indicator of the truth, similar to Lingard not positively saying he wanted to remain with us.
But we will survive and prosper hopefully without either of them? âš’âš’âš’âš’âš’.

2.) 05 Sep 2021 17:30:22
I agree with you both to a point, it is frustrating hearing the same story about him refusing a new contract unless there is a release clause, but I’m not being funny, other articles say no new contract has even been offered yet.

Also, the fact he hasn’t come out and said anything isn’t necessarily an indicator that there is truth. He could just be focused on his football and ignoring the chat about everything else.

Lastly, look at what has just happened with Harry Kane at Tottenham. The guy wanted to leave, wanted to join Manchester City, didn’t have a release clause and therefore Levy could play hardball and break the rumoured gentleman’s agreement the pair had.

Do I hold a grudge if Rice wants a release clause? Not in the slightest, as long as that release clause is at a reasonable value for the club. We want £100 million, so the release clause can be £100 million. What’s the problem?

3.) 05 Sep 2021 21:23:25
I think he is waiting to see how we go this year, he is certainly committed, we have a back up plan with Kral anyway, it's probably agents rather than media stirring it up, i'm not worried good players come and go its the way of any team outside top 4 I don't want him to leave but if he does I'm sure we will be fine.

4.) 06 Sep 2021 07:53:14
Why is it that the media are always print stories that just disrupt our team
Seems like if there no news they just run some bull story about west ham
Lingard don't well the other night think if united don't play him we could get him in january.

5.) 07 Sep 2021 08:53:05
RedRobbo’s got it right.

Believe what actually happens as opposed to media speculation. Almost all of these stories are 3rd rate journo and agent driven nonsense.

I’m sure Moyse has advised his players to avoid media comments.

Soucek recommended Coufal and look how that worked out. Both of them have recommended Kral. I’m really looking forward to how Moyse uses him, as he must consider that Rice might move on next season.

If Rice does leave in the future, he owes us nothing. He has been fantastic and a major part of why we are in Europe this season. Those who are becoming adversely critical of him might want to think about that, then imagine how Moyse might invest the cash if he does leave.

Frankly, whether Rice stays, or leaves at the end of this season - it’s win/ win.

6.) 13 Sep 2021 00:25:14
Dec also getting snarky with opponents have you guys noticed? Not a good example of captaincy or demonstrating "adulthood" at 22.



02 Aug 2021 20:12:47
West Ham come on this 10% chance of signing Lingard is stupid it's gone, go get pereria he wants to leave, it's a no brainer. Lingard made his bed his choice whatever, he doesn't want to come to us, so why hang on to this 10% bollocks is stupid.


1.) 04 Aug 2021 07:14:15
Agree Whitby, I would have loved Lingard to have stayed, but no point in deluding fans whatsoever with ridiculous 10% s—-, the club surely cannot think we are brain dead to believe such outrageous statements, Season Tickets spring to mind! 🤣
I see no point in speculation in these transfer windows, we get who we get or don’t get as it usually happens! It’s out of everyone’s control except the club! We did well enough last year with what we had albeit we won’t have Lingard this season!
We have have midfield and forwards all capable of scoring and defending, that’s how the game is played for me! ⚒⚒⚒.



26 Jul 2021 17:23:18
God I hope it's not true about us messing about with coufals contract extension, we don't want to lose that lad not after last years performance. Just give him what he's worth instead of scrimping and scraping.


1.) 26 Jul 2021 17:48:47
We’re a circus when it comes to tying down our best players.

2.) 26 Jul 2021 20:48:05
Sulli masterclass incoming :-
-make a derisory contract offer to one of our best most consistent performers.
-Sign injury prone Phil Jones on high wages.
- Bid well below the asking price of a couple of decent players.
- panick buy Martin Braithwaite for 3 times what yes worth on high wages.
- suprise Moyes with a mystery signing.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 21:16:57
How long was Coufal’s original contract?

4.) 26 Jul 2021 21:59:51
This is media making a story out of nothing, 1 coufal has 3 years left on his deal, 2 negotiations are always back and forth, sensationalised media is all this is wouldn't worry about it.



11 Jul 2021 09:58:52
Morning people, I just want to say good luck to England tonight and let's hope we hold our nerve. Mr Southgate bring it home and make my 40th birthday be super special. What a present that will be, Declan gets the winner aswell.

5.) 12 Jul 2021 11:32:11
Most of the European Union will now be chuckling at us after last night, when will this hysteria of “Football’s coming home” ever ✋ stop whenever International competitions are on? It makes us look so arrogant, just because we apparently introduced the game? I thought to be honest we had a good a chance as any especially getting to the final, but other teams do want to win as well!
It puts far to much pressure on the players, only decent penalty last night was Maguire, high in the corner, the Keeper is 6ft 7ins which must have been a daunting sight for the lesser experienced youngsters stepping up! âš’âš’âš’âš’.

6.) 12 Jul 2021 20:57:53
You going to try to be at the Newcastle game this year mate?
Still convinced me my wife looked after your oveer half the other year at St James Park lol I know you told me different:) , god what a foggy wet cold day it was, god we miss it .

7.) 13 Jul 2021 04:06:43
I thought the Kane penalty was the only decent one, low and hard, yes the keeper got near it but no stopping it. The Maguire one risked hitting a bar or going over.

Mate it really is about time SGB sold the club, it’s getting stupid now, it ain’t fair on us fans that they poss about like this every time, yea I know they have done well for the club, but we got into Europe, we’ve moved on a run on the ladder, they need to do the same, if not, move over and let someone in who wants to move us to the next run, starting with transfers, I know Ed has said about the funds because of C.V. but for god sake if u can’t make the team better, stop being greedy and selfish because u know that u will have to pay back to the taxpayer if u sell, just do the right thing, if u want to stay with the club so be it, but sell the majority and let someone else have a crack at the whip who is willing to spend the money, and I aren't saying I want them to go daft and buy everyone for silly money but at least follow deals through, it’s getting annoying now.

Hi Ayresy, I've not had anything neither has the father in law, although I think he did say they aren't issuing new tickets this year wether they are going electronic or we just use the old cards I’m not sure, I can’t make the first game being a Monday but the father I law is off down and he’s just taking his card from last year and looking to see if there is anything electronic being posted, sorry I know this doesn’t really help.

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?

Reports in papers saying Man U welcoming the possibility of taking Lingard back in the summer with a view of a a new contract and or extension. Hope he tells them to jog on.
