Morning all, hope all is staying safe

Ed 002 and news on any kind of striker coming in? heard of the usual million names but nothing concrete,


{Ed002's Note - The issue seems to be the lack of focus and identifying specific targets. WHU seem to be taking the scatter gun approach yet again. This sort of summarises where I think we are:

Moussa Dembele (S) has not reacted well to being on the bench for a few games and with Tino Kadewere proving his worth Lyon are open to selling. There has been a discussion with a couple of sides already but neither could offer him a starting role. Atletico Madrid hope to be able to offering the guarantees he wants and whilst he is not top of their list of replacements the player has said he is open to a move to Spain. David Moyes is a known fan of the player and might well see him as an option at the right price for West Ham. Moved to Atletico, scratch him from the list.
Boulaye Dia (S) Reims striker who would need to considerably improve his strike rate but has been of interest to West Ham, Brighton, Everton and Marseille. Says he wants to play for Lyon. I would scratch him from the list.
Mariano Diaz (S) It is true that Real Madrid have the representatives of Mariano Diaz offering him around on ideally a loan to buy option as they continue to clear the decks ready for a summer spending spree. Diaz is an out and out striker who had a very good season at Lyon three years ago but is simply not good enough for Real Madrid where the goals return has been well below average. He has rejected loans to several clubs already inclding West Brom and Brighton - West Ham may offer solution but commiting to an obligation to buy may not be wise. Seems to have fallen by the wayside.
Marcus Forss (S) Brentford Striker being considered by Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. New contract so he can be forgotten.
Arkadiusz Milik (S) will be available in January as he is out of contract in the summer. Atletico and Milan see him as a cheap option but Atletico have since decided on a different longer-term option because they have a concern that the goals dried up last season and he is very much out of favour this season. Milan have several player on their list. Juventus may offer him a deal for the summer - which is why Napoli are keen to move him on and replace him. Milan, who have several players on their list, Everton (who offer a wildcard option due to the links with CA) and Marseille have made it clear to his agent that they are not going to pay the €15M asking price for a player who will be a Free Agent in the summer. He has a very exciteable agent who has approached at least Spurs and Chelsea about the player with neither being interested - so he may well have approached West Ham. It would be a very high risk purchase if West Ham were keen. Moved to Marseille so scratch him from the list.
Olivier Giroud (S) Numerous clubs have an interest but will stay at Chelsea until the summer. Scratch him from the list.
Gaetan Laborde (S) An offer was made by a third party on behalf of WHU and rejected by Montpellier.
Moussa Marega (S) seen by West Ham as a cheap option able to sign on a Pre-Contract in January. But perhaps no longer first choice - but perhaps should have been.
Josh King (S) Newcastle have had an offer for JK rejected and offers may well be coming from Burnley, West Ham and West Brom.
Ivan Toney (S) The player decided on a move to Brentford in the summer instead of Swansea or Brighton. Celtic also made enquiries. After a very good start to the season he has attracted scouts from a number of Premier League sides including Everton, West Ham, Arsenal, and again Brighton. Brentford have no interest in selling.
Youssef En-Nesyri (S) West Ham apparently, via a third party, have made an approach to ask about availability and price for the player who has done well this season, but has mot set the world alight previously. Will be off the AFCON when it comes around. Makes little sense and I would scratch him from the list.
Odsonne Edouard (S) West Ham have enquired (with his agent) after the availability of OE but the player is apparently not keen on the move. He may be open to a move to Leicester who have also enquired with his agent. For now there are no offers are on the table but Celtic would listen to a significant offer.
Hee-Chan Hwang (F) RBL paid €10M to sign Hwang in the summer of 2020 and it has not worket out at all well and they are open to an intial loan in January but they are looking to move him on permanently and have replacements in mind. Yeni Malatyaspor want a loan but cannot afford the wages. There is some interest from the second tier in Germany but previous interest of Wolves and Leicester has gone. It has been suggested by an Austrian "agent" that West Ham have spoken with RBL about taking the player on loan and that interests RBL - but he has to be seen as a higher risk solution to the others that have been looked at.
Giovanni Simeone (F) Cagliari intend to sell to cover themselves financially and will listen to offers. They had hoped that Atletico would come in with a good offer. West Ham spoke with his representative but he would need to be matched with a Centre Forward due to his size.

Phew Ed002, Great info from you, but must confess lost on me, to much to read, I will just wait and see what happens if anything? ⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 13:37:51
Outstanding run down Ed002 -- thank you.
Patson Daka absent from the list -- did I miss something on him?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest:

Patson Daka (S) the player signed a new contract at RBS last season when he was assured of the chance to replace Haaland - a chance he has taken very well under Jesse Marsch. RBL could be interested in taking him in the future but the timing is not right now as RBS have no intention of selling. He is a player who would depart for AFCON which puts many clubs off. His agent and his assistant (Freddie Kanoute) have offered him around without the permission of RBS - this will be driven by the far higher wages offered elsewhere and certainly Lomdon-based clubs have been approached including Crystal Palace who have previously made an offer for him and Spurs. I suspect West Ham and Arsenal will also have been approached.

3.) 27 Jan 2021 15:57:37
Tremendous effort with the info, Ed002.

Many thanks.

My gut tells me that buying Benrahma outright this window and bringing Lingard into that loan space, will be it.

I can’t see there being anymore cash for the central striker we need.

{Ed002's Note - That is why they have jumped for Benrahma now, but they really must address the Stiker issue.}

4.) 27 Jan 2021 15:58:12
Wow. Thanks Ed.



30 Sep 2020 11:42:59
Chelsea have offered Rudigar and Loftus Cheek in exchange for Rice, but I can't see any cash, now if they offered £30m plus them 2 would Moyes be intrested?


1.) 30 Sep 2020 12:03:42
No thanks both are on silly wages.

2.) 30 Sep 2020 14:02:06
Villa have signed Barkley on a season long loan, what a joke, we should have snapped him up, why are we not making moves For an experienced PL player when he is available Instead of an unproved overseas player

3.) 30 Sep 2020 16:57:28
Because he is on 115 k a week and we would have to move or sell an ATM yes he would have improved the side he is a good player but not a position that needs filling . if C.V. does to this season like last season the wage bill for a lot of clubs is huge.

4.) 30 Sep 2020 17:42:31
I’m a Barkley fan. He’s an England international as well. Barkley and £50m would have sorted it.

5.) 30 Sep 2020 18:46:17
I’m a Barkley fan but the wages 115k a week is to much plus his loan fee we need a CB RB cover the only way you could justify 2 players leaving Wiltshire and one over.

6.) 01 Oct 2020 00:09:34
I'm not a BARKLEY fan gets in the final third and no end result for me I might do better or look better in a less expecting team but imo not good enough for what he earns. COYI.



28 Sep 2020 11:46:47
Fantastic win last night shows we do have the fight to move on, the system worked well

ED002, I reading so much that Chelsea are coming in this week for a bid for Rice, if they really wanted why wait to the last min to bid?, do you think they may offer a couple of players plus money for Rice, to entice to sale, maybe a DM involved in the bid?
Thank you in advance.


{Ed002's Note - If Chelsea do make an offer they will look to include a player in the deal, but I suspect WHU would prefer cash if they are even considering a sale.}

1.) 28 Sep 2020 16:20:49
Ed02 I think it’s a bit late in the day to sell we would need to replace dec which won’t be easy if we had lost yesterday the pressure would been on the board to come up with cash for which may have pushed the rice sale through. I don’t expect him to be at west ham next year but given the current market circumstances if he is sold do it in the beginning of the window when it does benefit us I know some fans are calling for or Barkley Kante/ 140 k a week Barkley 1/ 120 a week our biggest problem is an unbalanced squad and our main target is a CB does mean moyes is looking to go to a 352.

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Soucek could cover but WHU need the money and a CB is top priority. They will resist I would think if an offer is made. Obviously Kante is not an option but Barkley certainly is.}

2.) 28 Sep 2020 21:38:48
We would lose Souceks goals if he has to sit deeper like Rice. Really doesn't make sense why we would sell our best player with so little time to get replacements. If a mammoth bid comes in at the start of a window and you have plenty of time to reshape the squad then maybe we should consider it but not now that ship has sailed.

3.) 29 Sep 2020 14:57:35
And Barkley on 100/ 120 k a week I’m not saying Barkley would not improve the team but we have an abundance of ATM we just need to balance the squad out and play to our strengths we always seem play a right footer on the left and if yarms is on the right we have a very narrow midfield with very little space to play in. they very rarely put crosses into the box Anderson will put a poor cross in or run into to many bodies.

4.) 29 Sep 2020 19:26:00
The timing is well and truly ludicrous if Chelsea bid for Rice. Even if they have is £80m (which they won’t) we will never find a replacement on time.
If they want Rice, then they should make an agreement with West Ham to take him at the end of the season. This is IF and ONLY IF Rice wants to go and the deal is a good one for us.
The only thing they will do coming in with a bid this late, is unsettle Rice and affect his game.



14 Sep 2020 10:34:15
i'm not going to blame the board for this one, this season will show what Moyes is about,

Im not going to get on the bandwagon on this but we are just going backwards, I really hate to say this but I honestly think this may be our year to go down, we need a total reset, we have lost our way as a football club, the fans hate the board, the board don't care what the fans think to a point, it won't be long before the fans get on Moyes back than what?,

We are a dysfunctional club at the moment, were sinking quicker than the Titanic and I just can't see any hope until new owners come in, which may be next year but I read more than likely 2023.

Dear oh Dear, its going to be groundhog day of last season, I just can't see any light not just in the players but as a club as a whole.


1.) 14 Sep 2020 11:25:54
Newcastle game looked to me like a team not match fit, and this was evident from both teams. Rice and Soucek have both not had any sort of ideal "pre-season" and both did not hit the levels they were after lockdown. One plus side is that I thought the same after lockdown, and Moyes got us going soon after.
I have NO IDEA why Noble played so deep. I remember after lockdown he played much further up the pitch behind Antonio, and it worked ok. Vs Newcastle he seemed to come deep when we had the ball, this left us bare in the pocket as Soucek is not a passer, he is a box to box player who times his runs into the box. For me, FORNALS should play in the pocket or even go 2 up top. If NOBES is to play CAM then tactically get him to stick to that role. Even Bowen there works well with Yarmo out wide. With all our CAM's I think we can afford to bench Nobes in games like this.
Newcastle were not great by all means, they just took opportunities.
vs Charlton we could play Haller, Yarmo RW, Lanzini CAM and Anderson LW with Cullen and Rice/ Soucek behind. Could be a very good front line!

2.) 14 Sep 2020 12:11:08
I think the problem is people only focus on the club they support. Newcastle fans hate their owner, a sale fell through, if they didn’t buy Wilson they had no fit striker, yet they outplayed us because why? Other clubs have their problems too, but our biggest issue is all the pi$$ing and moaning by not just the fans but even now the players. On paper we have a good enough squad to be mid table they just need to be motivated and the fans need to stop acting like their is some white knight that will fly in with billions of pounds and they should realise we are not rich and that we need to bring in just a couple of solid defenders. We are where we are, no different to the 60s, 70s, 80s etc and all this rubbish the club is counter productive. Yes it will be a fight but that is what we have done for as long as I can remember.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 13:20:05
NOBLES legs are gone mate its sad to see him getting turned inside out and now is the time to tell him he ain't good enough otherwise we are going down that i di know. COYI.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 15:26:23
Agree to both points above.
SDL - you are right, this is normal and always has been. Why fans expect to be chasing europe as their base expectation every year is beyond me.
Whorya - I think we knew a while ago that he had slowed, and that we needed athleticism and improvements in CM, even more so now the game has become even more about running. Problem is, he is still our best passer, and by far our best captain. Last year it was a great move from Moyes to get Soucek in and then put Nobes further up where his lack of pace can be accomodated, and players could still benefit from his leadership and attitude.
New season now though, and Nobes should be an impact sub going forward. He should have been last year but this position was NEVER ADDRESSED previously. We have SOO many options in CAM Lanzini, Fornals, Snods or even Cullen who all have better legs. Get them on from the start. Note - only Cullen from the above is someone i believe can play as a 2 man CM. All other are CAM with TWO players behind them in CM.
LOVE Nobes, but we should use him sparingly and tactically corretly in today's athletic game.

5.) 15 Sep 2020 19:50:51
Correct me if i'm wrong but we are the 7th wealthiest club in england i truly understand the way the economy is at the minute but i don't see other clubs not spending money EVERTON are 8th in the list and they have bought in a couple of new faces so why can't we we've sold €25 million pound in transfers so that has freed up a little in the wage bill so we need at least 3 new faces otherwise things are going to go south very quickly and ni one in claret and blue wants that. COYI.

6.) 16 Sep 2020 13:04:23
Those richest rankings mean little when it comes to buying players, it is about the available cash. Don’t pay too much attention to the rich list.

7.) 16 Sep 2020 13:29:42
Was surprised to see bones in the squad to be honest.

8.) 16 Sep 2020 18:46:06
I see other clubs aren't holding back VILLA have managed to find players and when you buy players you don't put all the money up front its normally paid in stages. COYI.

9.) 16 Sep 2020 20:56:59
Hiya NLCKINHO you can't afford to have any weak links in the premier league especially a struggling outfit like us NOBLE has been a good servent but he's championship level at best along with CRESSWELL and he was playing for england not too long ago ableit only vaguely, I've always liked a diamond formation in midfield. COYI.

Afternoon all

Ed002, is there any truth in Arsenal wanting Anderson?
Thank you in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware - they have Saka and Martinelli who can play in the same postion. Lazio may offer an opportunity.}

1.) 03 Sep 2020 19:42:49
Think Anderson to Arsenal has been mentioned on web by newspapers.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 23:27:47
Anderson to Arsenal sounds like lazy journalism to me as it was last year that it was a rumour and seems they have just dug it up again.

3.) 03 Sep 2020 23:38:42
Apparently a £5m loan deal's being touted? I dunno, seems a bit iffy if I'm honest. That said he'd probably do well for Arsenal, their squad being more suited to accommodate luxury players than ours.

4.) 05 Sep 2020 12:39:55
When he played on the left can’t cross for toffee needs to come inside favorite position is a number 10 of the striker Bowen can play no 10 Antonio yarmerlenko a.

02 Aug 2021 09:58:02
Why does it take us so so long to get people in? I know as Ed 002 has explained in detail before that transfers take time, and i'm not suggesting we just waste money if Moyes is unsure, but do we not have what we have in mind way before the window opens?

I know we read speculation but surely the place to have started would have been a striker, Antonio is great at what he does but he does get injured, is Moyes toying with a false number 9 so to speak as for me a striker really does not seem like a priority at the moment, we need a CB and Midfielder and Striker at least this season, we are in the Europa so we do need cover,




22 Jul 2021 09:05:01
Morning All, I have taken my medication this morning and decided to share my thoughts on transfers

Rice is valued by WH at £100m whether they would get that or not is another subject, but as certain players are available NOW and not next season and taking into account we have off loaded Anderson wages and if we unloaded Yarlemenko wages this will free up over 200k so.

I would swap Rice for Abrahams and ask for £40m plus cash as part of the deal, I would then go out and get Danny Ings maybe £20m max, I would also go for Pereira from Westbrom who I think we could get for £15m

I would share the holding Mid role between Noble, Soucek, and Lanzini who I thought covered well for Rice last season, maybe Coventry could drop deep as another option, this would mean for one player as in Rice we have 2 proven strikers who score in the Prem to share and alleviate the burden for Antonio, and a decent Mid as we can't get Linguard, This still leaves the money Moyes will have this season to get a CD, and what other positions he feels, I honestly think that would be great business. my opinion only.


1.) 22 Jul 2021 10:22:11
Warrington, Danny. Ings rolling on from last season would be a real decent addition, has had injury problems though, so the fee would need to be really reasonable!
Also just a thought that if Rice was to go, I think it would be an idea to offer Soucek the on field Captaincy, that would also hopefully give him an incentive to stay with a wage increase as well, it could encourage Coufal to stay as also? After last seasons performances from these outstanding players there will be a number of clubs home and abroad eying this great duo up? We cannot afford to lose this pair! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 22 Jul 2021 11:24:20
Hi Chelms

Thanks for reply, yes I agree Soucek and Coufal are a must and I agree give Soucek the responsibility of the on field captain

I think my point was I think if not this season Rice will go next, but the players I mentioned will NOT be available as they are now, so we could a hefty fee but spend on a non proved prem striker where as we could get 2 proven scorers now. Agree again with Ings and injury but with Abrahams and Antonio we could manage him better, as in does he need to play every single game?

We can all speculate and the players may not want to come to Westham, But in my book to let Rice go and get two proven Prem strikers and a decent midfielder plus change is a no brainer.

3.) 22 Jul 2021 13:08:15
Warrington, I have got to say it is a good argument but I am not sure I can agree with you.

Tammy Abraham and £40 million for Declan Rice, then signing Danny Ings for £20 million and Matheus Pereira for £15 million would be great business. I cannot disagree with any of that. However, I am not sure both Danny Ings and Tammy Abrahams would both join us. I think it is fair to say, both would expect to start each week. Ings won’t want to go from a guaranteed starter to the bench and Abraham wants first team football so is willing to leave Chelsea in search of it. With Antonio (who when fit is probably one of the first names on the team sheet currently) already at the club, I think both Ings and Abraham would hesitate to join us if the other already has, as it would be a hurdle to their first team opportunities. Does that make sense? I would love to be proved wrong though.

The problem I have with your suggestion is the lack of a Rice replacement. I know you suggested using players we already have but I don’t think they will give us even a fraction of the strength in midfield that we would be losing in the sale of Declan Rice.

Mark Noble hasn’t got the legs any more. He has started to look off the pace in games and with the addition of European football on a Thursday with league games on the Sunday! Honestly, I can’t see him being any more than a squad player, a decent squad player, but still a squad player.

Lanzini did do well last year when he covered for Rice, I don’t disagree and when we are playing teams whereby we can afford to be a bit more creative then playing him in a deeper role would be a good shout. However, in my opinion when Lanzini plays deeper we don't get the best out of Soucek. Lanzini is not defensive enough to give Soucek the freedom he gets with Rice alongside him. When Soucek goes forward, he has the confidence that Rice will cover anything behind and I don’t see Lanzini fills that void.

You also hinted at maybe playing Soucek a little further back, but I’ve got to be honest, why would you even consider that? Soucek is best as a box to box midfielder, able to get in to the box to score but equally as comfortable at the other end, so why restrict him and make him more defensive and lose that potency that he offers going forward?

Personally, I would have no issue selling Declan Rice if the investment with the money we get for him is used wisely, but a replacement for Rice if we do lose him is an absolute must in my opinion.

If Manchester City want him (although I think that has gone quiet now Fernandinho has signed for another year, although I think they’ll be back in for him next Summer if he is still a West Ham player) ; I would ask for Nathan Ake on loan for the season, Yangel Herrera on a permanent deal and £40 million. Arsenal have apparently earmarked Ake as a £25 million target if their move for Ben White fails and Yangel Herrera is apparently available for £20 million. Ake hardly featured last year but is a proven premier league centre back, but can also play left back and Herrera is a tenacious midfielder and has been out on loan at Granada in Spain for the last two seasons. Add Danny Ings for £20 million, Matheus Pereira for £15 million and Alphonse Areola on loan from PSG with an option to buy next Summer and we have signed a goalkeeper, a centre back (on loan), a central midfielder, winger and a forward and still have whatever budget was set aside for a striker and centre back and £5 million left over from the sale of Rice (although I imagine this would be diminished by the increase in wage outgoings and bonuses and sign on fees etc) .

We missed a trick with Chelsea in the shape of Marc Guehi, he would have been a great addition at centre back. Now he isn’t an option if Chelsea want him; I would ask for Tammy Abraham and £50 million. Add Attila Szalai from Fenerbache for £18 million (apparently available for 20 million Euros), Nahitan Nandez from Cagliari for £30 million (apparently available for 35 million Euros), Matheus Pereira for £15 million and Alphonse Areola on loan from PSG with an option to buy next Summer and we have signed a goalkeeper, a centre back, a central midfielder, a winger and a forward for a net spend of £13 million (although I imagine this would be more by the increase in wage outgoings and bonuses and sign on fees etc) .

4.) 22 Jul 2021 13:34:06
Abraham + 40m for rice is a great deal but for Chelsea! Not sure why any west ham fan would be interested in that.

His value was 100m before the euros and after his performances that should have went up not down!

We might not be in the best position financially right now but we should be able to fund a stiker, attacking midfielder and a CB or 2 if we smart we can make 4, 5 decent signings and keep Rice.

Id rather do that and give some of the youth players a chance.

5.) 22 Jul 2021 13:39:50
Die_4, Wow that’s a really well thought out post, must have taken some research, well done, you must be an accountant🤣👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 22 Jul 2021 15:05:09
Thanks Chelms, appreciate it, although not the accountant thing. Haha.

Look at the end of the day, West Ham have a decent starting XI as it is but let's be honest, our squad depth is lacking. We need reinforcements, especially with European football on the agenda this year.

Some articles suggested we have an £80 million transfer budget this year, others suggest we have nothing.

C.V. has had a big impact for a lot of clubs, I vaguely remember something Ed002 said "West Ham have been affected more than most" although if I am remembering incorrectly then I apologise now Ed.

We have let Anderson go for peanuts and we are looking to offload Yarmolenko. Lingard isn't looking all that promising either. So that is 3 attack minded players that we are losing, albeit, one of them wasn't at the club last season and one was only loaned to us.

As a fan, it concerns me the lack of strength in the squad. Rice got injured and we struggled for results. If we sell Rice and don't replace him, we are making a mistake.

I have said this in a couple of posts previously, if West Ham sell Declan Rice for cash, it won't be a bad thing IF WE INVEST THE MONEY PROPERLY. All we have got to do is look at the way Leicester have done business in the last few years. They have sold Kante and Maguire for big money and invested well in replacements. They're not struggling after offloading their prized assets.

I like young, hungry players. I thought Attila Szalai was an absolute monster for Hungary during the Euros. I think Yangel Herrera has done well in La Liga and I think he is tailor made for English football, he makes me think of Aston Villa' Douglas Luis - who coincidentally joined Villa from City after playing for two years in Spain on loan.

We need at least one forward and I agree Danny Ings would be an awesome signing, as would Tammy Abraham, but I don't see us signing both.

Long story short, if we sell Rice and invest wisely, I am sure we will still be competitive. If we keep Rice and don't have a decent budget for players to improve our squad depth, I am concerned that it could be a long season if we get an injury to a key player and a suspension or two. Can you imagine if last year whilst Rice got injured, Soucek had been suspended?

7.) 22 Jul 2021 18:20:53
Die_4, I wasn’t a fan of us getting into Euro because I said and you rightly say the lack of depth in our squad! But a lot of posters put up the argument that it would attract players if we were in Euro, which I totally agreed with as well!
We have the toughest league in the world in the Premiership, then our Internationals, players travelling
, I hope it doesn’t affect our Premiership standing if a few injuries are picked up! But that’s looking on the downside, let’s hope it works in reverse for us, maybe it could👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

8.) 22 Jul 2021 18:23:12
Leicester are a great example! From what Moyes has said though we have had a pretty much non existent scouting setup. With no director of football in place we haven't really had much stability and structure in the way that we target players and managers.

I wouldn't feel comfortable letting Rice go at this stage with the right signings we could establish ourselves as a team regularly competing for top 6 we were so close to getting top 4 this season and could argue were very unlucky not to be in the champions league!

Besides he's just posted on his Instagram looking very happy in our new away kit! I believe a lot of the stuff posted about him is absolute nonsense!



14 Oct 2020 13:25:30
Im hearing Berahma medical will be at Queens Hospital Romford, Sullivan has asked his agent if he can pretend to have pains in his legs and heart so they can do a full scan and check on him, Sullivan reported that times are hard and his down to his last Billion and his doing everything for the best interests of the club.




14 Oct 2020 10:33:55
Having read we are likely to sign Said Benrhama, which to me I keep pronouncing Biryani, it occurred to me that we have a few food and drink sounding names in the squad

Declan Rice
Arthur Moussaka
Robert Lemongrass
Manual Lasagne
Sebastian Hallal
David Martini
Angelo Oggbolognese
Josh Culinary
Aaron Cross and Blackwell
Tomas Soupcek

I wonder who we could sign next to keep it going. GOD i'm BORED! :)

I have just read WH will reject all offers concerning Rice, IMO this will be the case unless its absolutely silly money as £80m, or a decent cash sum with a couple of players in positions we need

What would it take if you were Manager to let Rice go?, throwing it out there to all.

Rice is priceless to us, but I suppose every player has a price so to scare Chelsea off it’s £150m, why should teams like us make a strong team stronger, we will never catch up if we keep feeding these clubs!

Stevie. A short and completely logical post.
Thanks mate. It’s nice to see some common sense post amongst all of the pissing and whining from some about why our owners won’t fork out stupid money and jeopardise the long term future of West Ham.
Your right, give us what we feel he’s worth and we’ll think about it when WE are good and ready to let him go and have cover for him.

Rice will go at some stage. If we can hold onto him until after The Euros then his price will soar again.

Chelms, I think Abraham has proved he does score goals, how many times have many times have we paid big money or loan deals for strikers who do not hit the mark, I can understand where you come from on you opinion of Abrahams but he does score goals, and the amount of chances we do create i'm sure if we did get him he will be a 15 plus for the season and the very least,

Any decent strikers Ed on as free agents?, thinking about it that question basically contradicts itself lol.


{Ed002's Note - I don't think West Ham are looking but there are folks like Mario Mandzukic, Mario Balotelli, Alexandre Pato and Daniel Sturridge who are looking for clubs.}

Nope, to clumsy and erratic for me, if his on a free and willing to pay as you play but for every yellow card or foul conceded he gets fined, it would be a sensible move as well be in credit after each match.

exactly Ed002, plus Stevie as Ed said it was a 3rd party close to Brentford, maybe he wanted to be billy big shoes and make a few quid from the tabloids who knows.


{Ed002's Note - No I spoke with him to see if I could find out what the issue is; he did not speak with the tabloids.}

It depend what he has failed on, we did the same with Demba Ba, he was going Stoke and failed the medical, WH went in at a well reduced price and picked him up, Ed002 any update on this please.


{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure this is a big deal. There were issues with a blood test yesterday that were being looked at again - but this has come from a third party close to Brentford rather than the club itself.}

Hi Chelms

Thanks for reply, yes I agree Soucek and Coufal are a must and I agree give Soucek the responsibility of the on field captain

I think my point was I think if not this season Rice will go next, but the players I mentioned will NOT be available as they are now, so we could a hefty fee but spend on a non proved prem striker where as we could get 2 proven scorers now. Agree again with Ings and injury but with Abrahams and Antonio we could manage him better, as in does he need to play every single game?

We can all speculate and the players may not want to come to Westham, But in my book to let Rice go and get two proven Prem strikers and a decent midfielder plus change is a no brainer.

Raver does every Spurs fan go to a school of excuses?, i'm just wondering as every Spurs fan I spoke to before the CL final were already saying well its a bonus we got there as if to cover there backs when they last, and now u done well as u spent no money and still qualified, have you ever considered if you did spend money to strengthen the team you would still have a great manager who may have taken you to the next level, instead of the "Excuses One", who will cause trouble to be sacked once things are not panning out for him,

Granted you do have a strong forward line especially with Bale, but if you can't defend and fall apart the first sign of trouble as in WH first goal on 82 mins another empty season, and if the case I can't wait for Mourinho excuses on that one!

Thats not me being nasty for nastiness sake its basic facts!

Im surprised Bale didn't get a 20 min run out for Wales, going into a Prem game after playing Golf for months and although doing training its not game time,

I would be surprised if Mourinho started him, after being away for so long there is always a risk of hamstrings etc if you push it to far to quickly, god forbid he he got injured :)
