Moyes didn't seem to optimistic about this window. Hopefully he's just trying to play expectations down but I'm not so sure.

Sven Botman is supposed to be available not sure why we aren't all over this left footed, young with huge potential.

January is difficult as teams don’t want to let someone go without a replacement. I think the real hope might be in a loan if a player is not getting a game like Lingard last season, a player that will be free in July might convince a club to cash in, or a player from lower division or lesser league like Czech where the player will push for the Premier League opportunity. Any big name contracted player from a big league is unlikely to be sold.

01 Jan 2022 07:03:56
Trust Moyse and Newman. They know what they’re doing. I feel happier now that Kretinsky is on board (in both senses). He has the experience, drive and financial expertise to move us forward.

The Jan market is always a difficult one. We will get players in, but they might not be the various superstars being touted.

Exciting times, though.

01 Jan 2022 11:26:00
The comment he made stating they want to act but are not ready to act was a strange one.

Apparently there is someone he wants but the club don't want to sell in January. Let's say its the striker we've needed for the past 2-3 windows what happens if someone else comes in the summer or we fall down the table and the player no longer wants to come. We are back to square one searching and will be looking at a lower caliber of player.

Now if the club just won't sell at all then not much we can do but perhaps if we can temp them with a higher offer then you'd have to at least try, I don't see a problem paying a premium for a player you definitely want considering the price could easily go up with good performances anyway and if its player you are certain on they could help us stay in top 6 and compete in europa.

01 Jan 2022 14:25:35
I think we will at least get a centre half and an attacking midfielder, striker could well be too costly in this window, there's a lot of competition driving prices up

01 Jan 2022 21:23:29
There is increasing buzz that the Cabral deal is sorted.

01 Jan 2022 23:11:15
Did read that about Cabral will be interesting as the club have really played down any early deals

02 Jan 2022 20:39:04
Cabral looks good certainly wouldn't mind us getting him.

Since the window has opened we have also been linked to Breel Embolo and Adama traore the latter rumour was squashed by C&H. Probably just media linking us with players of a similar build to Antonio.

We could definitely use some more pace as a different option.

03 Jan 2022 07:23:14
i like A.Traore hard to shake off the ball and strong as an OX and pace to burn with the right coaching i think he would fit nicely into WH. and also left back Degne from Everton
i don't think our centre backs have played badly the problem has been Masuaku although Ben Johnson has been outstanding playing left and right back Oh let's not forget Iingard he's a must if available

03 Jan 2022 08:38:19
I would be delighted to get Traore! Rated him from his M’boro days, apparent rumour Wolves want possible £20m, drifts in and out of games but what a player, creates, can score, I would rate him as fantastic deal at £20m in the current market, yes please??plus Lingard?? wow, but that’s dreaming!

03 Jan 2022 13:48:48
Traore has not registered one goal or one assist this season, he has no end product whatsoever, I wouldn't touch him with a bargepole,never fulfilled his potential, Lingard is a must if avaliable though

03 Jan 2022 15:57:38
Ahh that old Adama Traore chestnut. Let's put it this way. 157 Premier League appearances - 7 goals. Our very own favourite scapegoat Andriy Yarmalenko, 56 Premier League appearances 7 goals. To pay money to replace Andriy with someone worse would be utter madness.

And anyone who thinks that Moyes could fashion a striker out of a really bad winger, Traore has played 25 PL games as a striker. 0 goals.

All the pace in the world is pointless if you have the footballing brain of an Ostrich.

03 Jan 2022 17:46:54
Exwhuemployee has come out and said he doesn't think it's someone we are looking at.

His best season in prem was 4 goals 9 assists. Other seasons it's all been 1s and 2s

0 for assisted and goals this season with 10 starts and 6 sub appearances weirdly he has 4 MOTM performances.

Although I think it's unlikely we are looking at him and I'd rather have embolo or lingard it wouldn't be the worst signing in the world he can get you up the pitch 30-40 yards and often gets doubled up which would create space for the technically better players.

04 Jan 2022 00:07:25
I doubt Traore would be a target what point? He can’t score. I think Tarkowski is unlikely, why would Burnley sell now? Staying up is worth more than the cash from selling him. Ake is still getting a game at City so why would they sell? I think it will be really hard to do much business unfortunately. If we can get 1 or 2 we will have done well.

04 Jan 2022 17:34:38
Hlozek, please. He wants to come to us and is a great talent with an exciting future.

29 Dec 2021 03:05:43
Patrick Schick, Czech International Striker currently playing for Bayer Leverkusen is reported by Daily Star to be on WHU shopping list currently this season has 26 goals in 13 appearances

Agree3 Disagree0

29 Dec 2021 11:48:31
Sorry this 16 not 26 still impressive though

29 Dec 2021 14:13:33
Though 36 would have sounded even better.

31 Dec 2021 16:09:21
yes let's see his Schtick in claret-and-blue

{Ed002's Note - Patrik Schick (S) Bayer Leverkusen do not wish to sell but know the interest of Manchester City, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus could see the price rise significantly. Interestlingly, whilst all have a declared interest, none have him as their first choice. West Ham and Manchester United have both sent scouts to watch him although seem unlikely destinations.}

04 Jan 2022 17:34:58
I’d rather have Hlozek.

26 Dec 2021 17:13:52
Just seen the result, don't know what the performance was like so can't really comment, but we really need to win these home games, we've failed to beat Palace, Brighton, Brentford, Southampton that's 10 points dropped at home, not good enough if we want to challenge for top 4, we'll be lucky to get top half finish at this rate.

{Ed0666's Note - there is no chance you’ll get tip 4. Personally I think spurs are a shoe in for the 4th place. They have momentum and Conte has got them playing again.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Dec 2021 17:54:15
And yet spurs were incredibly fortunate against us. We've had a dip in form but multiple poor var decisions going against us really killed us off in those games.

Today I'm not sure why on the pitch side monitor they only showed dawsons contact in the box and not the fact the initial contact was made outside with momentum carrying them both into the box.

26 Dec 2021 17:29:32
Agreed Ed. The wheels have come off since ogbonna, Cresswell and zouma got injured and our Replacements are nowhere near the same standard

{Ed0666's Note - it’s a shame mac would have been a nice story David Moyes taking west ham to the champions league

26 Dec 2021 18:55:28
Absolutely Ed. Just shows how important good depth is

{Ed0666's Note - so true mate but without gargantuan amounts of money or an excellent academy how do you achieve this?

26 Dec 2021 19:20:20
Arsenal willl End 4th, Spurs 5th and we’ll possibly be 6th. Although we won’t get anywhere with Masuaku in our side.

27 Dec 2021 10:57:35
i sorry i don't agree with some of the comments Mansuaku was total rubbish as well as Fornels if we can't keep the ball its bound to happen that our back line comes under pressure. We all know Diop and Dawson will struggle to get in the side if Zouma and Ogbona were not injured but they wer not the worst players on the pitch As Markwhu said Masuaku should never be in the back line

28 Dec 2021 01:49:26
I have to say on present form 8th would be a good finish. I did think the Spurs game we did enough to look like we were getting back to something like our best, but perhaps Spurs are so rubbish they made us look good. The game against Southampton the first half was nothing short of pathetic, the second at least we went forward with purpose but got suckered constantly on the break. I see some have said Rice played well, I think it was the worst I have seen him play for us. The first goal he was too far from the player taking the shot and after that it looked like Soucek was told to go forward more but Rice didn't help sweep in front of the central defenders, he was still trying to bomb forward. Yes he is a good player but with Soucek going forward we need someone holding, neither seemed to. I don't know if we can beat Watford where just 4 or 5 weeks ago I would have been very confident.

26 Dec 2021 17:04:26
A lot of disgruntled fans today. A shadow of the team earlier in the season especially at the back where we are all over the place. If Diop, Dawson and co can't step up then we are doomed

{Ed0666's Note - define doomed?

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Dec 2021 17:31:02
Doomed to not build on the great groundwork that was laid at the start of the season, mainly due to injuries of course

26 Dec 2021 17:50:52
??Bit dramatic Mac3?Reckon you’ve been watching “Dads.Army” “We’re all Doomed”??Don’t think we’re relegation bound, that’s what I would call doomed!

26 Dec 2021 18:21:38
Lol Chelmsford :-) ok a bit dramatic but saints have a dreadful record against us. The cracks are starting to show. Why did Antonio not come on until half time If he is fit enough for bench he is surely fit enough to start. I also hope to god we get a good lb in January cause matsuaku can't defend

29 Dec 2021 12:50:18
yeah we have a month's transfer window to pick up a few players - concentrate on those we need ; centre back perhaps left sided, striker (not AM where we are overloaded!), and probably a full back.

25 Dec 2021 22:19:19
Does anyone know if the District Line and Jubilee Line are open tomorrow?

Think Liverpool Street Line is down.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Dec 2021 09:45:51
Lingaard and Wijnaldum rumours appear to be popping up on the web. 2 good players. if true.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Dec 2021 17:29:31
If Lingard had really wanted to come to WHU, he would have manufactured himself a move back in the summer. As it is, he's
apparently now all about staying at Utd to 'fight for a place in Rangnick's starting XI' (yeah right).

As for Wijnaldum, Meh. No thanks. There's a reason Liverpool farmed his now 31 year old self out on a free and there is also a reason why PSG are trying to get his £165k a week off of their books after only 5 months.

20 Dec 2021 19:02:42
I see today in the sun that suggestion Lingard still wants to stay at Man Utd and won’t be leaving in January.

{Ed047's Note - I guess he feels he has as much chance as all the other bang average players there to get a game under the latest messiah!

21 Dec 2021 19:27:01
Frankly, we need an established striker in Jan as well as another CB.

Much as I like Lingard, he should be at least 3rd on the priority list. In fact, leaving him be this Jan (if rumours that he wants to fight it out at MU are true) makes the best financial sense. He’ll be free in the summer.

22 Dec 2021 13:57:00
Agreed Markro, we got to prioritise where we need plkayers and we definitely need two strikers and cb. We also looking a little weak at LB. If cresswell gets injured we need a good replacement cause Matsuaku isn't up to it

20 Dec 2021 21:41:53
Too true Ed ?

23 Dec 2021 09:50:12
Yes; Arthur is more of an attacker ie winger than defender. Over reliance on Antonio now telling as Bowen, although excellent and a forward; will never be a CF - not prolific or tall enough! Lastly yes reliance on Johnson at CH when he is a full / wing back, and Ashby, a kid at FB too; is too precarious - let's get some experience in during Jan transfer window.

13 Dec 2021 18:25:10
Dele Ali, he's a decent player. Think if the price/wages weren't ridiculous I'd seriously look at him if I were West Ham.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Dec 2021 19:09:55
He's been rubbish for seasons! Poor attitude and doesn't look like he's got any graft in him don't think he's a moyes player. Taking him of spurs hands would help them so a definite no for me!

14 Dec 2021 09:43:37
Never seems to put the hard yards in. That’s a no from me, too.

14 Dec 2021 10:22:46
No Deli for me either??⚒⚒⚒

14 Dec 2021 10:52:27
Moyes does not sigh any player who is not prepared to do a full shift that's why Yamo will leave and will never sign Dele Ali

14 Dec 2021 14:43:44
yes a real shame Alli has wasted some reasonable talent at his personal disposal

16 Dec 2021 22:07:41
There’s something Ravel about him.

19 Dec 2021 23:05:32
He looked decent today v Liverpool

20 Dec 2021 21:52:44
Watched a short video on Mourinho and you could see him showing videos of Alli walking around, leaving the danger area. It was really focused on others needing to shout at him, but to me he is a bit like Benrahma, has skill and ability but too often gives up and walks around waiting for the ball.

21 Dec 2021 13:51:59
It must be difficult to play to your best with a tarantula stuck on the top of your head

21 Dec 2021 19:28:17

I also spider tarantula.

06 Dec 2021 11:11:02
Rumour is Newcastle ready to pay Lingard 100k a week on a 4 year deal. Not sure how they would know those details but if true I imagine that would be very tempting for him.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Dec 2021 11:55:28
But there’s a possibility of him playing in the championship therefore will probably not get picked for England, so I think he would take a little less money when there’s a possibility of champions league football and getting back in the England squad.

11 Dec 2021 18:38:34
It's not about money with lingard man u offered him an improved contract which he is not interested in he wants to play when he opted to join west ham on loan Newcastle where also interested in him back then but he turned that move down we could match those wages should yarmelenko/Randolph/Frederick's move on in January

13 Dec 2021 13:42:03
I can't see Lingard wanting to play in the championship if he wants regular football and to get back into the England setup he knows his best chance is with WH.

29 Dec 2021 12:53:04
whom would sign Fredericks? better use to us to keep him as cover across defence and MF when desperate.

06 Dec 2021 00:37:20
The Sun, write that we're in for Edin Hazard. Madrid want him off wages and willing to take £130m hit. Even if we had to pay him £250-300k per week. He'd be a good buy.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Dec 2021 06:15:44
Don't agree. While the 21 million is good value (though he suffered a few injuries of late) the wages is far beyond what we should pay. This would upset the whole structure and you would wave goodbye to the closeness of the squad if not managed correctly. I think it has been proven over the past two seasons we should be buying players that fit into the squad, and not just the best player available. If I was Declan and I saw him come in on 300-400 (he gets paid 400 now), I would certainly be off.

06 Dec 2021 07:51:30
Agree. I can’t see GSB (or Kretinsky) considering him as an option.

06 Dec 2021 15:27:08
For me £250/300k per week for Hazard would be an insult to our present squad, no way could I see them sanctioning that and I hope not! Not sure what his form has been like at Real, at Chelsea he was fantastic, but that was a few years ago now! Not for me? We have to many down to earth non superstar players that graft, don’t think he fits the present team mould for me?⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

08 Dec 2021 21:04:15
Totally agree with chelms and SDL we shouldn't even have Hazard on our radar as for me he's only playing for the massive salary he's on (not his fault) how can a player who was imo in the top 5 players in the world not had a decent game and can't get in a then struggling side, they are playing well presently but i don't think DM would entertain that transfer.hi chelmsford hope you and your family are well stay safe out there my friend.

10 Dec 2021 21:11:04
Behnrama is much better than hazard lol get a grip if we sign him it makes a statement had he been in the best form? No but he has been an elite player in recent years, as for the wages i'm no fussed let the club worry about that, we would get a player who has been a top drawer player at club and international level knows the Premier league and is only 30 and is an instant upgrade on everything we have

21 Dec 2021 19:33:37
Who suggested Benrahma is better than Hazard?

05 Dec 2021 10:00:37
Don't know if true or not, but who would like to see Eden Hazard in a Hammers shirt?

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Dec 2021 10:44:57
Not at 400k a week, thanks.

05 Dec 2021 20:26:23
Agree with Major, the signing fee at 21 mill is good but his wage is way too high for us

06 Dec 2021 07:52:05
