Apparently the stumbling block was the 50% drop in wages should we be relegated from 80k down to 40k a week so not really West ham's fault how can you expect to pay a player 80k in the championship it all worked out in the end just hope he's not another huggill!

Nah this guy is a player.

01 Feb 2020 08:24:23
Jason’s, hope so, plus he plays as he does on £6k a week, as a lot in the Championship do, what a disgrace it makes a lot of ours look like, let’s hope now he’s a⚒ He doesn’t fall into the same bad habits⚒⚒⚒.

01 Feb 2020 09:17:30
i do think now we have a chance to stay in the Premiership. We now have someone with pace, skill, and an eye for goal.
Welcome to our family Jarrod.

01 Feb 2020 10:08:04
Actually he has skill but pace is not something he possesses.

01 Feb 2020 10:29:04
No idea how deals are thrashed out but he has apparently a staggering 5 and half year deal😮 No wonder we got him, who conducts these contracts, have we not learned our lesson from all the sick notes that have drained the transfer resources previously and ongoing, no need to name them we all know who they are! Why not 3 years or so, so they never learn from previous mistakes, obviously not? He is a proven scorer at the moment albeit in the Championship and I am really grateful to have anybody that helps us out but phew hope he’s not another Haller or a few others as we’ve got him for a long while? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

01 Feb 2020 14:22:27
Soucek and Antonio starting👍Hope Ant don’t try to hard and aggravate his problem, didn’t think Soucek would start? Hope Antonio helps to put a squib up Haller’s ——-🤣Really imperative not to lose, 3 points would be massive⚒⚒⚒.

01 Feb 2020 16:50:16
After this we are going down.

01 Feb 2020 17:23:28
WTF was Moyes doing subbing Ant unless he was injured or flagging, amateurish, you don’t change a winning system, do they think it looks good being technical. I still think a few seasons ago at Spurs we were 0-2 up, then Bilic made a sub for no reason, think a Spurs corner was about to be taken as he subbed, bang in it went, then Kane scored the 3-2 winner with a few minutes left, that destroyed my faith in Bilic, amateurish trying to look technically smart but end up looking a p—-. Thought Moyes was unprofessional and did the same today, 2 points thrown away👎👎.

01 Feb 2020 19:55:48
Let's remain positive. Weve started scoring goals and could have had more than two first half. Weve got bowen coming in who us match fit. Soucek looked good today. Defence can't play worse and 3 of our last 4 fixtures are against norwich, watford and villa where I have confidence we will win them fixtures and these 3 still have liverpool and city.

02 Feb 2020 11:42:26
So gold has liked on twitter west ham fans being called morons.? We trusted you and sully and look where we are now!? You promised champions league its now gona be championship.

02 Feb 2020 19:28:08
It’s about time some realised life isn’t about promises, they are sometimes impossible to keep, that’s what children believe in not adults, it’s easy to sell any product to a naive punter when he knows he is going to line his pocket!

06 Feb 2020 20:41:02
On the jarrow bowen thing regarding he isn't a pacey winger but just behind the striker for me is his position he isn't slow but what he's got is 3 major things he's strong on both feet he reads the game very well and has very quick feet so let's hope he can make the transition as it's a big step up and many fail but I think he's got that ability I didn't think ANTONIO would make it but he did let's hope he can stay fitter than him but I don't think ANTONIO is fully focused on football more fast cars let's hope BOWEN applys himself fully as players get distracted by their wages and thinking they can walk on water when they get their feet under the table. COYI.

31 Jan 2020 19:10:53
Bowen deal nearly done, 🤞.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 20:59:05
2 hours later still waiting. The messin about over this transfer shows that even championship players don't really want to join.

31 Jan 2020 21:35:54
I need a manicure, I haven’t got any nails left, lol.

31 Jan 2020 21:46:38
Would have been nice to get this done sooner and he could've played tomorrow. Great bit of foresight there.

31 Jan 2020 22:56:37
10mins to go any news.

31 Jan 2020 23:06:08
Nope I don't like this.

31 Jan 2020 23:07:07
Supposedly he was at the stadium with his family and Moyes before the window closed so hopefully it got done nd just an announcement to come.

31 Jan 2020 23:16:11
Done deal.

31 Jan 2020 23:18:58
BOWEN IS A HAMMER ⚽🏐😄 GET IN! didn't think we would get this done it smelt of previous transfer business deals so I ain't apologising as they've showed they've got minerals😂. COYI.

31 Jan 2020 15:26:47
Deal for bowen gas hit a hitch as we are squabbling over his £60k a week wages when we pay Wilshire £100k a week and Reid £60k a week. Wtf is wrong with us.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 16:08:24
Bournemouth very keen on bowen also so watch this space. don't be surprised if he goes there.

31 Jan 2020 16:13:26
Oh no😮😮Get the f—- out both of them and some others! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

31 Jan 2020 16:39:34
Afraid so.

31 Jan 2020 16:53:29
He won't be coming sullivan being tight wad mac.

31 Jan 2020 16:54:33
Is it not over the wages I hear but the relegation clause which halves his wages.

31 Jan 2020 17:15:50
Bowens current baic salary is £312k per annum that's just over £6k per week. No doubt he gets win and goal bonuses but £60k per week is 10 times what he is getting at the moment.

Former west ham defender Reece Burke now at Hull is on the same salary.

31 Jan 2020 21:11:27
From what I've seen of bowen he's better than we have and sully won't pay 60k .? It beggars belief.

31 Jan 2020 22:49:09
Arguing over £10,000 or £20,000 when the likelihood of us going down would cost us about £100 million great business yoda if you don't get this done I believe it is another PR stunt for YODA to say we tried but he wanted ridiculous money, no he probably wanted premiership wages and the 2 Ronnies and the plastic posh tart are trying to palm him off with championship wages that's more like the truth as SULLY never tells lies😂. COYI.

31 Jan 2020 07:03:22
Of course it could only be our owners that have sent a legal letter to sky asking for apology! Typical, they love being in the news. Hope am wrong but I can't see much being done today and even if we find targets teams need to have replacements in mind and have time to get one in. don't go to bed pmsl.

Agree0 Disagree0

Reading that news article this morning made me chuckle. They really are the chuckle brothers.

I have also read that Marko Arnautovic was pushing for a return, but the Coronavirus and the grounding of all flights from China put a stop to it. Honestly, I wouldn't have been disappointed if he'd come back, but I don't think this was ever actually on the cards. I think all ex-premier league players playing in China have been linked with a return to Europe.

Jarrod Bowen is a good signing if it comes off. I'd be pleased with that.

I still think we are lacking in central midfield still if we get an injury or suspension. £8 million for Victor Wanyama is a bargain, something we should be all over. Spurs want him off the books and I am sure we could probably get him to come over.

We are also lacking in both fullback positions. Cedric Soares would have been a great signing at right back, available for £5 million, but now looks on his way to Arsenal.

Danny Rose would have been a decent signing for left back on loan although Tottenham probably wouldn't have loaned him to us.

31 Jan 2020 14:52:58
Looks like the AMIENS striker GURASSI is joining BHA so we will see when he probably bangs in goal after goal😂. COYI.

30 Jan 2020 18:04:12
Sander Berge has signed for Sheffield.

Eds any news on full backs?

Any truth that we are trying to hijack crystal palaces deal for Jarrod bowen?

We seemed to have sprung to life if reports are to be believed however i fear to little to late. Wasted to much time on gedson.

{Ed002's Note - I agree it is late - no preferred targets will be picked up but there is interest in Bowen. Not a great approach as you can imagine.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2020 10:28:04
Cheers Ed.

30 Jan 2020 17:33:42
I've seen that Crystal Palace are interested in Jarrod Bowen, and I thought why are West Ham not all over this, but I've just read that Newcastle and West Ham are also interested with West Ham being in the best position as they have offered a straight cash bid, find it hard to believe, so I don't know if anyone or the Ed's have any info on this?

{Ed002's Note - It is tough to step in late in the day and not the way to do business, but it seems right now that the eggs are going in the Jarrod Bowen basket - that may change tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 21:37:34
According to insider thiers no more signings to come.

31 Jan 2020 08:17:04
Just read online in “London News” we have offered a last minute bid for Jarrod Bowen for £22m and he prefers WH to Palace who have not bid anyway? Don’t know if it’s made up journalism or true.

I have no idea of Bowen but he does play in the Championship and we are desperate, their is to much at stake not to try as long as he’s not a Wilshere with bad injury history which is unlikely I hope? At the moment I would rather see Hugill than that Haller up front, he can’t be worse for half the price? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

30 Jan 2020 19:53:02
Thanks mate.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome man.}

31 Jan 2020 16:40:38
Problems with his £60k wages.

30 Jan 2020 17:28:36
if u read all the reports we are interested in signing anyone who can kick aball
Please tell us Ed who are we interested in.

{Ed002's Note - Late in the day and not the way to do business, but the eggs are going in the Jarrod Bowen basket. If Palace or spurs pick up Eberechi Eze it might be a slip by West Ham. An offer on the table for Olivier Giroud might have been a good idea a couple of weeks ago.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 05:27:04
Chaps, I've read that this Ntcham bloke from Celtic is in advanced talks, if that's the case then surely he would not have played last night, is this just another rumor or is there something in this?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any such move this month Stevie.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2020 12:31:04
Ok Cheers Ed.

30 Jan 2020 16:06:15
Jean pierre nsame big strong powerful forward just what we want.

30 Jan 2020 16:46:33
Once bitten twice shy with forwards from the weak Swiss League?

30 Jan 2020 17:01:03
Why don’t they go for Giroud, he wants to stay in London and wants first team football. He may not want to come but surely it’s worth a try.

30 Jan 2020 17:05:12
We won't get no more in not with sully or the helm friends.

30 Jan 2020 18:12:08
Mixed signals licking around ref giroud. Turned Newcastle down twice and we have now shown interest but Lazio agreed deal with player.

30 Jan 2020 18:29:36
Agree giroud worth asking.

30 Jan 2020 18:41:18
Giroud is too slow we need pace up top imo, that's why we miss antonio so much when he doesn't play.

30 Jan 2020 19:41:23
I got to ask why we have suddenly come to life with 24 hours to go. We have bids for numerous right backs, being linked with jarred bowen and god knows how many midfielders and strikers?

28 Jan 2020 18:11:02
Rumour that after 10 years Winston Reid is on his way to the MLS Shame another James Collins situation me thinks.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jan 2020 18:42:02
He had some great games for us, but wasn’t always as consistent as you’d hope. It’s easy to see his time with us through rose tinted specs, though.

That last injury did for him, really.

Wish him well.

28 Jan 2020 19:15:11
He hasn't really played for 2 years to come back from that would have been too much to ask at PL level.

30 Jan 2020 01:41:30
He’s cost us £60k per week for 2 years!

30 Jan 2020 19:42:00
Wow £60k a week for 2 years for doing nothing.

28 Jan 2020 16:38:55
C&H reporting that “Soucek is a Hammer. ”.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jan 2020 17:59:34
Seen the same - currently sorting his unveiling video and club photos before statement released tonight/ tomorrow morning.

28 Jan 2020 18:09:02
Why don't we play Xande Silva up front.

28 Jan 2020 18:39:42
I think Moyse will give Antonio free rein to buzz around Haller tomorrow. Our problem is service from the wings.
