So any truth in these Carroll to Galatasaray loan rumours that have been agreed .?
Surely we´d have to have a replacement lined up if we did!

Could the replacement be Gabigol?


2.) 19 Dec 2018 19:27:07
I hope so . Him and Anderson with Arnie up top is deadly.


3.) 20 Dec 2018 09:59:49
I hope they got a big treatment table to fit him on.

Gabigol certainly fits the profile of a MP player. Must trust in MP to make him a success in the Prem if he does go for him.
He is currently on less (50k) at Inter than big AC as well!
Not 100% sure anyone will pay a fee for the big man in Jan though, so maybe we should expect to see a loan deal for Carroll until end of season when he is out of contract. Then we can either do same for Gabigol with a buy option, or potentially use the funds Ironmike spoke about for a permanent purchase.

I think it makes absolute sense to offer Jack Wilshere a 1 year contract if reports are true!
Perhaps with an option for further 2 years if he proves his fitness and plays so many games!
Giving him a big 3 or 4 year contract off the bat is quite frankly a ridiculous thing to do!

Costa, bang on👍 1 year no more, interesting to see if he goes the for the longest contract offered😂😂 Panicking now Wengers gone and Emery’s shown him the door, he’s not been used to that!


2.) 25 Jun 2018 11:45:36
I wonder if this is us low balling whilshere and his agent. We say 1 year, they say 3 or 4. Meet in the middle of 2 years with an extension?


3.) 25 Jun 2018 15:58:01
who in their right mind would gee him 2 years straight away? . madness!

I´m sorry but 2 fit CB´s at the club is not acceptable to me and one of those is in horrendous form!
Imagine an injury to Diop . what then?
Rice yes can go back there but has not played that role for a while now plus it leaves a huge hole in the CDM area which we have nobody to fill!
Disastrous window for me and let´s all cross our fingers and hope Diop or even Ogbonna (even if he is awful, so just a body) are not injured!

Yes we are all thinking on your lines , what a state. IRONMIKE.

It´s like deja vu. big names being touted as next manager but nothing will probably come of it and it will be either Moyes are similar!

it all has a familiar ring to it! . will no doubt happen with player transfers as well . Sullivan loves this time of year!

For me the most important position we need to fill is a Defensive Midfielder and a player who can actually pass the ball well.! also to protect our sometimes dodgy back line! . attacking players are just icing on the cake but let's address the real glaring issue first!

costahammer

1.) 19 Jan 2018 13:56:56
Dondencker fills that need.


2.) 19 Jan 2018 14:11:00
he seems to Phil but u think this lot will fork out 20m odd on him.? . i'm not so sure!

I find Lanzini frustrating, clearly he has talent but fails to deliver on a consistent basis!

Payet elevated his game and of course along with others as well in that team!

I think he tries to mimic is international team mate Messi in trying to dribble all the time which unfortunately more often than not he comes up short on!

You can´t play Fornals, Wilshere and Lanzini in the same team!

its absolutely pathetic business from West Ham! we sell a 25yr old English PML player to another PML team for 750k! . you couldn´t buy a 2nd division player for that! . who negotiates these deals! . ridiculous!

If Man U are in fact in for him and he knows that then this will drag on and on until Man play their hand.

Higuian and Costa would be typical West Ham signings!

I thought those days were behind us, going for the over 30 best days behind them players who´ll no doubt be on huge wages!

Younger hungry players showing some form to progress the club, plus sell on value that can be reinvested further into the club!

if we keep doing what we´ve always done will we just stagnate!

we don´t defend as a compact unit, we are way to slow in transition between attack and defense and as a result holes appear on the counter when the ball breaks down! . the personnel are wrong . you cannot have Lanzini, Fornals, Wilshere and Anderson in the same team. that´s nearly half the team with zero defensive attributes. we need grafters in there too and perhaps play more on the counter instead of gung ho especially vs the top teams!

I´m still astonished that we have a natural born winger in Masuaku and we don´t play him there instead we play right footed players whether it be Anderson, Lanzini or Antonio!

Masuaku is left footed, can beat a man to the byline we all know that with his trickery and not keep cutting inside, can deliver a decent cross, will track back and put his foot in, decent pace, its a no brainer and would bring more balance to the team

He´d be a dream for Haller!

i don´t get it, it´s an absolute waste!

You have to admit we are short in the Striker position having Chica as our only back up, and before you say it Antonio is not a Striker! . if we want to tread water at best then by all means keep it as it is but if West Ham are serious about pushing the top 6 then we have to have quality in depth!

Also we need a CDM as if Rice is injured then Sanchez is our only back up (Yikes) and before you say we have loads of midfielders you are right we have an abundance of attacking midfielders not defensive!

Also i know it won´t be addressed this window but we are desperate for 2 new full backs of quality! . Yes we have a quick young guy at RB who i´m still not sure on his defending attributes and at LB well, Masuaku had a handful of games towards the end of the season where he did ok but does not gloss over how horrendous he was before that and Cresswell is on the decline it´s plain to see!

agree Whorya48. i think we are terribly light in front of that back 4. they were exposed time and time again last season. Rice can´t do it all on his own. needs another engine in there!

Would be absolute madness for us to let 3 strikers go and only replace with 1 striker going into a full season. we weren´t exactly prolific last season anyway!

If Chica goes as well i would expect us to sign at least 2 perm strikers and 1 on loan or a free!

Unless of course they´re happy with our youth strikers stepping in as cover!

After all we not blessed with luck when it coms to injuries at West ham!
