Just heard from a mate he's heard a rumour dendocker and sturridge are nearly done any truth in this.




11 Jan 2018 21:31:45
Heard a rumour we looking at getting shaqiri to link up with Arnie again anyone heard any more in this.


1.) 12 Jan 2018 08:13:56
Unlikely according to MOYES who has said we are trying hard to bring in a couple of players for the right positions who can be with the club long term and maybe a couple of loans. Only 19 days left in this window and so far all we've seen is speculation, mulling, pondering, considering and potential bids (sound familiar) but hope springs eternal and we do still have 2 and half weeks left but time is running out! I reckon we won't bring anyone in unless its a loan or two and then IF WE STAY UP we'll have a complete overhaul in the summer getting rid of the players MOYES doesn't think are up to standard.

2.) 12 Jan 2018 08:14:37
I reckon possibly SCHURRLE and INGS on loan and Chicharito and Sakho will leave and possibly use the money from our sales for Dendoncker.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 08:31:32
id take that if we got those 3 players.

4.) 12 Jan 2018 11:44:31
Clutching at STRAWS.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 14:41:08
Hiya Phil sensible again mate I think people forget was are WEST HAM and nothings that easy probably top up with a loan deal for a 33 year old has been on 90,000 a week . COYI.



13 Aug 2017 13:44:13
Hearing William c arrives tomorrow can anyone confirm hope we put in a gusty performance today so he not put off.


{Ed002's Note - I don't think so. He was of course the player Klopp wanted but he moved for Salah instead.}



04 Aug 2017 16:57:38
Just watched the city game very few positives rice looks great Chico looks a class above but we really need a CB and cm to compliment the signings we made.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 17:05:33
Agree, we need someone like Lemina, as without Lanzini we are predictable and pedestrian
Hernandez is going to be class but can we create the chances for him.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 17:08:22
I know it was only a friendly but we are in desperate need of defenders, the whole game was virtually played in our half so we couldn't give our strikers shooting practice, we've got a week to sort things out, because if we play like that against Utd we will be bottom of the league with no goals scored and six conceded!?

3.) 04 Aug 2017 17:08:52
The defence is woeful. they have no positional sense and are clueless to who and what is around them! .

4.) 04 Aug 2017 17:29:48
Going by the brief cameos so far we have managed to give him a few chances and that's without lanzini and Antonio so I'm hopeful.

5.) 04 Aug 2017 19:07:49
PLEASE show me, where the hope comes from, it's in short supply with our fans after that game, WE need BOSS defenders, we have perhaps one (Reid) on his best days BILIC looks bemused, there's nothing wrong with what we have bought, it's nowhere near enough though sorry, I know we have a few injuries at oresent BUT we always do, that's why you need a proper squad WE don't HAVE ONE IRONMIKE.

6.) 04 Aug 2017 19:47:32
At least Hart got a lot of practice for the back pass, lol.

7.) 04 Aug 2017 20:06:25
It's going to be a long old season again I fear. Without Lanzini we lack any creativity, we can't keep hold of the ball, are unwilling to press teams and get torn apart. Chicharito showed good movement and held the ball up well, but looked very frustrated with his teammates. With the usual injuries we have every season, squad still looks weak and unable to sustain a decent campaign over the season.

8.) 04 Aug 2017 23:06:55
There you go hammerdave the only thing I got wrong was we didn't score and our defence is shockingly poor and if you're happy with that then I'm missing the point told you what we need a proven premiership quality C/ B and if you look at the defending for the second goal OGBONNA looks at MASUAKU as if to say where were you absolutely no communication or understanding what they are supposed to do and get paid ridiculous amount of money for what to perform like that exactly my point mate no togetherness or understanding of what they are doing I really believe if that game would have gone on for another day we wouldn't have scored and I ain't buying it's only a friendly and it was CITY because that doesn't wash with me I really fear for us unless there is drastic changes and arrivals.

9.) 04 Aug 2017 23:19:15
Exactly mike that's why I said we need a strong bench and somebody on the forum said we are signing too many players in similar positions that's why I said no you need a starting eleven and every sub should be of the quality of what's on the pitch mate I know you commented and said I was right but your comment is spot on mate so frustrating.

10.) 05 Aug 2017 17:46:28
Are you moaning again?

I agree we need more signings
I never said you were wrong in what you said. just that you moan a hell of a lot. We all know we have a lot ofwork to do. but it won't happen in this window. So just give the moaning a rest

Do we need more signings? Yes
Do we need a cb cm and another creative attacker? Yes
Is noble past it? Yes
Do you moan alot? Hell yes.



18 Jul 2017 17:22:49
Hart official now on to the striker come on.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 17:32:43
No option to buy though apparently for Hart which is weird.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 17:43:25
Just read NO option to buy Hart - via BBC Sport

Can we confirm?

3.) 18 Jul 2017 17:47:40
The bid for keita balde has been accepted its of 25 mill rising to 29 mill and he will earn 3mill a year. if this happens what a coup it'll be but surely he will start over arnoutovic as Hernandez will be up top.

4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:56:40
Has his agent got involved yet?

5.) 18 Jul 2017 18:20:15
Hi guys, sky are saying there is an option to make the Hart move permanent, there normally pretty accurate.

6.) 18 Jul 2017 19:40:25
I'll take my last comment back as Jim Whyte has just said on sky there is no option to buy, can someone tell me why this is?

7.) 18 Jul 2017 21:04:06
I also read no option to but Hart. I also read a very interesting article which is quite insightful. If hart is on loan and we don't sell one of our keepers which is highly likely, clearly only one of them will be on the bench. This is both demotivating for the keeper on the bench and clearly more demotivating for the keeper who doesn't even make the bench. I think and the article also states that Adrian and Randolph are both very fine and talented keepers who unfortunately are prone to making mistakes JUST as Hart is. Would it not be fair to say that the way we let team com on to us last year and additionally the both shaky and indecisive defence we had last year could have had a negative impact on the mind set of our keepers that caused the keepers we had to panic a little? Would hart not be affected in the same way. Hart really looked good at City because they had a better defence than we did. I think a defensive line goes hand in hand with a keepers performance. The worst part is, if and when hart goes back to city or we choose not to buy him next year, how will the keepers we have be feeling and would they be sharp enough to pick up the reins.

I see silly season in full swing some of the names linked are really exciting and doable I'd love daka and kral both young and can be eased in with little pressure get lingard in and that's a solid start and I'm sure Moyes has his cb targets laid out with agent soucek giving advice.


1.) 29 May 2021 21:01:36
Add in sima or hlozek aswell.

2.) 30 May 2021 08:32:31
I have a sneaking suspicion that the Kral interest is not merely bolstering our midfield options. Moyse is also covering himself in case we end up selling Rice.

The last I read (and, yes, I know it’s all speculation) our war chest was estimated at £85m plus any money raised through sales.

If Anderson and Yarmolenko are shipped on for £25m-£30m and Rice were to leave at silly money (with Kral replacing him for the touted £14m) Moyse could build a very decent squad .

3.) 30 May 2021 09:28:33
You may be right Markro, but IF that is the case, we need some seriously sound investments in players to improve the team. Selling Rice, Anderson and Yarmolenko and any others would give us close to £200 million to spend

I would expect to see AT LEAST 5-6 big additions for that kind of money.

4.) 30 May 2021 12:28:47
So many conflicting reports on how much we actually have to spend. I doubt its 85m plus sales but if it was we could build a decent squad without having to sell Rice for me its crucial we keep him and build round him we need an extra cm with what we've got so Kral would have to come in with someone else if Rice was sold.

You could go get 2 of Sima/ hlozek/ Daka for 40-50m.

Kral around 15m
Joe Worrall 7-10m

Unfortunately I think Man u might be way over estimating lingards worth talks of 30m for a 29 year old with no sell on value and 1 year left on his contact is ridiculous. He hit a purple patch when he came to us but faded towards the end. I think 15m would be fair but can see us paying 20m 25m. Anything above 25m we should look elsewhere.

I think the above would give us a quality squad.

5.) 01 Jun 2021 10:17:59
Sima is bang average from what I've seen, plays on right mostly aswell, i'd get Arnie back on a free as a starting point.

6.) 01 Jun 2021 13:02:15
Arnie on a free would be a decent deal and if it is even feasible that he'd be free, I would definitely explore it.

Out of Hlozek and Sima, I would be all over Hlozek.

7.) 01 Jun 2021 14:44:58
Hlozek i think is better but i think I read he might have just signed a new contract.

Sima looks like a bit of mixed bag but you have to remember he's only 19 and has done well in Europe against good opposition.

Daka I think might have interest form champions league really like the look of him and he's at a good age to step up now. Where the other 2 are really young.

8.) 02 Jun 2021 14:58:38
Kral would be a good signing, no dout.
We can only HOPE that Dec stays. I think if Moyes can get Kral and the striker position done early then it certainly looks like we will progress for an even better season next year, which would be attractive for Dec along with the fact he will be captaining a team in Europe, this is HUGE experience for him that he won't get elsewhere. When we stop progressing, he leaves.
Out of the strikers we are linked with (could all be rumours tbh), i am not sure who i prefer.
Hlozek i like a lot, but we need a CF and he plays right and left wing as well. I have not watched him play so cannot say if he will be what we need. Un-educated thumbs up from me though on the assumption that he can play the CF role the way we need a striker to play.
Daka is also a very good player, love how pacey this guy is. His only weakness could be his strength/ power in the PL. Thumbs up from me though.
Sima looked decent in the EUROPEAN games i watched. Strength again is the wory for me.
Arnie is someone I personally would welcome back on a short contract providing there is no big financial outlay for WHU. Seems the players liked him a lot, and he certainly would add strength and depth to our team if not be even be better than Antonio. Wages would need to be realistic again, and I completely understand other fans opinions on him returning as well.
Ultimately, I trust Moyes will do the homework and we won't end up with a striker who cannot play in our system (like Haller) . In reality, ALL of the above would be an improvement as we have no backup right now!



06 Sep 2020 10:03:09
Just seen Wilson set for Newcastle nice easy debut goal for him then.


1.) 06 Sep 2020 23:27:07
buy a Geordie top if that your attitude.

2.) 06 Sep 2020 23:42:33
That had to sign someone, they have no fit strikers. We get a little to insular looking at our own issues, other clubs have problems too. Newcastle are hoping to have as side to play us.



07 Jul 2019 13:37:01
All this striker chase we should target Haller he's big tall and quick would be perfect and his only 25 so good age in my opinion he'd be better than gomez.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 16:39:31
And after all this time gomez now decides he wants to join Valencia. You couldn't make this up.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 18:40:44
and now sky sports are saying we are going to pay his release clause. but we want to pay it in installments. there is the west ham we all know and love 😂.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 18:53:39
So be it - onwards and upwards. We will have at least one high quality striker come 10th August.

4.) 07 Jul 2019 19:31:53
Not sure about that.

5.) 07 Jul 2019 20:14:13
I think the late offer today is linked to the Austrian finally leaving (as reported by Talksport) and the cash that’s coming in for him.

If we now have that extra money to spend, we are in a better position to push for higher level strikers.

6.) 07 Jul 2019 22:32:07
Another striker I like is KASPER DOLBERG.



16 May 2019 13:12:38
Why have we not signed anyone windows open gsb out lol.


1.) 17 May 2019 10:27:01
Mistley it's all dependant on Gsb agreeing to taking Messi on loan. I've heard he wants to play for West Ham for nothing but dependant on Carroll staying as his strike partner lol.

2.) 17 May 2019 23:45:56
Yes Messi wants to come so he can get a goal at Anfield and catch up with Salahs daughter in the goal scoring stakes.



13 May 2019 09:45:27
I hope we can tie up a couple of good signings early to set the tempo for summer one or both of brahimi and herrea would be good to push first team and raise squad quality.


1.) 13 May 2019 09:58:06
I’m sure MP and H are very keen to get business done early.

They will have an initial War Chest to buy quickly, then sell what we can to improve our cash for later bids.

He can't defend but for what I'm seeing maybe wrong but if pellers gets his cm to help rice and we play more possession football his attacking will be at the fore not his defending and then hel be perfect with his skills just needs a better end product.

I'm hopeful of a great performance not necessarily the win but it will be a good yard stick to where we are as a team if we stay competitive for 90 mins.

Been saying the same for years other teams get the ball get it back in play then go again we just toss it forward and hope for a flick on its infuriating.

Well chuffed with that performance my only concern is we have no direct replacements for mas Antonio rice or soucek if they get an injury or ban we have found a winning formula need players who can carry in on the bench we had today don't have the effort and discpline.

I would forget about him and go for ajer at Celtic be cheaper allowing money for a lb.

In my opinion we only really need a lb and should go all out for myalenko looks great at defending and useful going forward i'd avoid Rico Henry reminds me to much of Fredericks class is lower league lost in prem.
