Is the Stoke sell on clause a % of the whole fee, or any profit?

I see that goalkeepers keeping one foot on or above the line will not be part of PL VAR next season

I think this is rediculous if your using VAR make proper use of it. If GKs know the rule and it will be applied they will have to stick to it or it will be retaken.

Leaving it up to a ref who has to look at 2 people at the same time is rediculous and open to cheating - bet you any money you like the tip 6 will get away with it as usual.

Given that West Ham have supposedly only got a transfer budget of £30 million this Summer, plus anything we can get from player sales I don't think we are going to have a sufficient transfer budget to make wholesale changes that actually improve our squad significantly.

We have three players on big wages out of contract this Summer:

GK - Adrian
AM - Samir Nasri
F - Andy Carroll

And we are apparently willing to sell a number of our fringe players with the money we get coming from player sales all being put back for reinvestment to the squad:

CB - Winston Reid - £3 million (not previously been mentioned as a player we are looking to sell, but I'd sell)
LB - Arthur Masuaku - £8 million (not previously been mentioned as a player we are looking to sell, but I'd sell)
RB - Sam Byram - £5 million
CM - Edimilson Fernandes - £8 million (apparently off to Mainz with a deal close to completion)
CM - Reece Oxford - £3 million (apparently off to Augsburg with a deal close to completion)
CM - Pedro Obiang - £8 million (apparently wants a return to Italy)
F - Chicharito - £10 million
F - Lucas Perez - £2 million (apparently wanted by Alaves)
F - Jordan Hugill - £5 million

Those player sales for those amounts would only give us an additional £52 million in transfer funds, taking our total budget to £82 million for the window. Which is a sizeable transfer budget if we only had a couple of players to replace. Therefore, I wouldn't actually be opposed to supplementing our transfer budget further by selling one of our prized assets in Felipe Anderson, but only IF we received an offer of £70+ million. If we had an offer of £70 million come in for him we'd have £152 million to spend this Summer and we could get some quality young players in with some experienced older hands to balance out the squad and improve both the starting XI and the squad. I wouldn't just splash the cash and buy players to fill every position, I think there are a few players out there that are available on a free this summer that we should be looking at. Replenish the squad with the following (my opinion) .

GK - Jonas Lossl - Free agent - Contract expiring at Huddersfield
CB - Guillermo Maripan - £15 million - Alaves
CM - Fabian Delph - £15 million - Manchester City - Utility player, can play anywhere across the midfield and at fullback
CM - Franck Kessie - £35 million - AC Milan
CM - Andre Gomes - £25 million - Barcelona
W - Andreas Pereira - Free agent - Contract expiring at Manchester United - young player too
F - Ante Rebic - £35 million - Eintracht Frankfurt
F - Maxi Gomez - £35 million - Celta Vigo

That is an overall spend of £155 million in transfers + agents fees and so on and I am not going to pretend I know how they are calculated, but we will have replaced every outgoing position in some way or another and in my opinion we will have improved the squad.

My Starting XI would then look like this.

GK - Lukasz Fabianski

RB - Ryan Fredericks
CB - Issa Diop
CB - Fabian Balbuena
LB - Aaron Cresswell

DM - Declan Rice

CM - Manuel Lanzini
CM - Andre Gomes

RW - Michail Antonio
LW - Ante Rebic

F - Marko Arnautovic

Subs

GK - Jonas Lossl
CB - Guillermo Maripan - Slowly introduce him to the league, then alternate with Diop and Balbuena
CB - Angelo Ogbonna
LB - Arthur Masuaku
RB - Pablo Zabaleta
CM - Mark Noble
CM - Franck Kessie - Slowly introduce him to the league, then he'd start instead of Lanzini
CM - Jack Wilshere - Slowly introduce him back to the starting XI while he recovers from injury - when fit, alternate with Gomes
CM - Fabian Delph
CM - Carlos Sanchez
W - Andriy Yarmolenko - Slowly introduce him back to the starting XI while he recovers from injury - when fit, alternate with Antonio
W - Andreas Pereira
W - Robert Snodgrass
F - Maxi Gomez - Slowly introduce him to the league, then he'd start instead of Arnautovic.

how did you get on raver?

Could've gone 7th with a win, that was heartless, gutless and useless, no urgency to get forward, sideways and backwards passing, don't think we had a shot on target and we were the home team, can't wait until the summer, massive clear out.
