Three deal sheets in with FA so two hours extensions.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 17:05:16
I take it the deal didn't go through?

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 17:25:09
Deal sheet submitted - new deadline 7pm. Hopefully it gets finalised.

16 Oct 2020 17:27:31
West Ham have put a deal sheet into the league and have until 7pm to come to an agreement?

16 Oct 2020 14:41:22
Ed, have you heard that we could now be after a loan deal for Benrahma with obligation to buy?

{Ed002's Note - I am not keeping that close to the situation. However, it would not be a good way to try and do business with Brentford at this late stage.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 15:26:52
Would it be an idea to loan Benrahma, so there would be funds still available to buy King, maybe sell Anderson or Haller next summer to then buy Benrahma if all goes well?

16 Oct 2020 17:13:46
Hi stevie66 no news on BENRAHMA but KING definitely staying at AFC. COYI.

16 Oct 2020 12:07:26
Benrahma has failed his medical, we could be in for King now?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 12:27:29
I see they are re-doing the medical, would be good to hear what he failed on as could be simple and nothing to worry about.

16 Oct 2020 12:41:33
Considering Kieron Dyer, Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshire all managed to pass their medicals you have to wonder how exactly Benrahma has managed to failed his.

16 Oct 2020 12:52:08
He either fails or passes surely? ⚒⚒⚒.

16 Oct 2020 13:02:46
I just read that it was something to do with blood work. Hopefully it gets sorted and maybe the fee can be reduced.

16 Oct 2020 12:24:44
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.}

16 Oct 2020 13:44:45
If this isn’t a big issue, why even mention it if they still think the deal will happen, it’s all just to add to the drama of deadline day!

{Ed002's Note - Has WHU said anything at all?}

16 Oct 2020 13:58:15
Someone’s mentioned it, whether it’s West Ham or Brentford, it could’ve all been kept under raps until 5pm, but like I said, it all adds to the drama, I still think something might happen with King?

16 Oct 2020 14:00:30
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.}

16 Oct 2020 17:16:40
BENRAHAMA didn't fail his medical apparently that's come from DM so you never know but a loan deal with a view to a £30million deal in the summer but still waiting for confirmation from WHUFC. COYI.

15 Oct 2020 11:19:25
Strange if the report is true that we will pay 8m to Brentford when we sell Benhrama regardless of what we sell him for. Have heard of % sell on clauses but hadn't heard of guaranteed sums before.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2020 07:27:30
Hi guys, I don't know if this is true or not but I've read that West Ham are to make another offer for Josh King?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 21:42:20
I am absolutely over the moon at the signing of CRAIG DAWSON, I've never seen him have a bad game he's always a 7/ 10 without fail and is great at set plays, what he lacks at in the pace dept he makes up up with his reading of the game and I believe he will become a fans favourite IMO. COYI.

13 Oct 2020 17:00:13
Apparently the dispute between Benrahma and Brentford has now been resolved, the player is now clear to join West Ham?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2020 21:55:02
Which if the press is correct and Moyes didn’t want him, then that is going to blow up sooner or later.

13 Oct 2020 23:02:37
Fingers crossed.

14 Oct 2020 07:25:31
Sdl definitely a sully signing, behnrama does fit in at all with what moyes is trying to do, if moyes was calling the shots we would have gone a bit harder after josh King in my opinion.

14 Oct 2020 10:42:14
Just a thought, but perhaps we should try to sign a couple of their Scouts as well🤣😂 Watkins, Benrahma! I wonder if lower league Scouts try harder with their connections than some Premier league Scouts due to their clubs status wallowing in cash? ⚒⚒⚒.

14 Oct 2020 11:18:59
I read that he favoured a Striker, I don't think he will have any objection with his arrival, the trouble is if a player who is really decent in is available and we do not sign him as Moyes wants a forward, we than go after the forward and as per usual it all goes wrong we miss out on the Benrahmi, everyone will be giving the board pelters again, don't get me wrong these 2 have made massive mistakes but we can't keep slaughtering them for everything, I'm not a fan of them but sometimes it occurs to me they can't do right for doing wrong!

14 Oct 2020 13:54:55
Warrington, I am not anti board at all, I would like to think if I had investment in the club that entitled me to have an input on who is bought or sold I would do that! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

14 Oct 2020 14:47:06
Like many others I have been frustrated by Sullivan’s historic playing at transfer deal maker, but I think things have improved. I’m betting that Moyse’s return to the club was prefaced by discussions about who has the final decision on transfers.

Benrahma is a quality player and, for me, an upgrade on the Anderson of the last 12 months. If he makes a real splash with us, we’ve got an appreciating asset on our hands too.

For all their Trotter Traders reputation, S&G did save the club. The mysterious dream of an American consortium is alluring, but if it doesn’t happen, we’re not doing too badly.

14 Oct 2020 18:07:02
Of course it's a sulli signing he was on talk sport last week complaining how many wingers we have.

Benrahma is an exciting signing did he not play up top for a period of time for brentford? Maybe that's what the board and Moyse are thinking and if he can replicate his championship performances in the prem we will have a worldie on our hands.

15 Oct 2020 02:28:39
Don't get me wrong I am not anti-board, but do hope Moyes is on board with the signing.

12 Oct 2020 16:52:18
The Benrahma Deal looks like it could collapse as they are focusing their efforts on signing King instead, any news on this Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have no update at this time.}

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2020 17:53:22
What a joke. Everything all done apparently bar the medical and how there are complications! Always the same joke of a west ham way. Now we want king who everton also want so he's not going to come to us.

12 Oct 2020 18:16:38
I can’t understand why they would announce that they’ve agreed a fee one day only to call it off the next, there’s a good chance we won’t get either of them, (Benrahma or King), we will probably get Deeney?

12 Oct 2020 18:44:45
Ugh, Troy Deeney. 17 league goals in the last 3 seasons, 10 of which were pens says all that needs saying about Troy Deeney.

12 Oct 2020 18:47:31
The problem appears to be Brentford want more money, so it’s not us this time.

12 Oct 2020 18:51:14
We are signing both. In all seriousness I wouldn't believe any of the reports it was first suggested by the daily mirror I don't think they have any legit sources they just make stuff up.

Most of it's all designed to get us clicking. I doubt a deal had even been agreed between the club or benrahmas representatives.

To me he doesn't seem like a Moyes signing but more of a Sullivan type. I'd take them both if we could you know you are going to get a solid premiership player in King and he would be great cover for Antonio. Benrahma could turn out to be another Mahrez worth a fortune.

12 Oct 2020 19:27:12
Dawson arrives ON LOAN.

12 Oct 2020 19:32:14
Sounds like it's a row between Brentford and Benrahma's representatives about loyalty payments. All we can do is sit on the sidelines and see if they sort it out.

12 Oct 2020 20:03:13
Im sorry but IMO KING is injury prone and we need to steer clear of them typical west ham moves look at WILSHIRE whos contract has just been terminated for crying out loud. COYI.

12 Oct 2020 20:24:26
In fairness West Ham didn’t announce they agreed anything that was the press. Read a story yesterday as well that said it wasn’t done and could fall through. People shouldn’t keep blaming the club just because they believe what they read in the paper.

12 Oct 2020 21:27:57
Apparently we are also now showing real interest in ben Davies from. preston.

13 Oct 2020 11:34:45
Mac, Hope Davies is not another Hugill at Preston, we could do without another £9m pounds worth of nothing🤣😂⚒⚒.

13 Oct 2020 12:33:13
Dawson = good deal. I was worried we'd get him on a 3-4 year deal and struggle to get rid further down the line, a 1yr loan is PERFECT. He is not inspirational, but we only need him as cover and he is proven to be OK in the PL with very few mistakes leading to goals, and is the type who could do well under Moyes. Our recent form proves we CAN be solid at the back but just lack in cover. We do need to improve at CB long term, and will no doubt look to get a 24-28 year old CB on bigger money in upcoming windows, but failing this, Dawson on short term cheap deal is good policy. Personally the money touted for these CB's at the moment is ludicrous, and i am glad we did not cave in and pay huge sums for players unproven in PL (e. g. Fofana) in this window. Tarkowski (whom i'd love at WHU) for £35m was also too much for us in our current position, unless you could guarantee us that he would change us like Van Djik did to Liverpool. He would improve us long term, but I am not sure he would be THAT good. Bear in mind Leicester got Jonny Evans for £3.6m.
For me, Benrahma over King, but the price (if £30m) is mad. He is a CHAMPIONSHIP player! For Moyes though, maybe King suits his style more? Hard to say this one. I agree with Whorya that King has injury history (and his wage demands were ludicrous also (£70k max, not 120k! ), but Benrahama is unproven at PL level. I think Benrahma will work better with Haller than Anderson did, and the fact he is settled in Uk/ London is also a HUGE bonus over Anderson who did not settle. So i do think he would be an upgrade. I believe the board (and Moyes) are hedging that they will get £20-25m back on Anderson with the loan fee and hopefully a transfer fee next summer, plus they will save nearly £1.5 mil in wages over the season. This nearly pays for Benrahma, leaving funds for a CB there for next summer, while Dawson can cover this season.
The issue for me, we STILL have no Declan cover.

14 Oct 2020 07:09:43
Dawson is a great defender.

11 Oct 2020 19:38:43
Apparently a £30m Deal has been agreed including add ons for Benrahma, and he is due to have a medical on Wednesday when he returns from international duty, that's what I've just read anyway?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2020 20:26:45
So if this is true. we were desperate for cash so sold grady for 18 million to fund moves for players in positions that were needed ie centre half and we go and sign another winger for 12 million more and no doubt will be on much bigger wages, top transfer buisness right there no wonder we have struggled for the last few years really.

11 Oct 2020 23:24:39
someone was quick, his wikipedia says he plays for West Ham already. Not sure he is the right player, but if we are signing him I hope he works out well, known for a bit of an attitude I have read. I guess we would play him on the left in place of Fornals as Fornals ain't really a left winger. Maybe drop Soucek back to hold and Rice into the back and play an AM like Fornals, though I still think we have too many attacking wide players and not enough holding and defensive players.

12 Oct 2020 06:11:20
Reminds me of another algerian in MAHREZ so let's hope he's as good imo he will be a very good player for us so let's get behind him and not be down about the signing as i think he's a better player than DIANGANA but its all about opinions and that's mine . COYI.

12 Oct 2020 10:35:02
It’s not been confirmed quite yet.

12 Oct 2020 16:57:36
latest news is the deal for Benrahma is off and Moyes wants king
What have you herd guys.

12 Oct 2020 17:53:57
yep the same.

11 Oct 2020 13:58:50
Sounds like we've made an inquiry for Deeney?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2020 15:16:47
Sorry, enquiry.

11 Oct 2020 17:41:18
They’re interchangeable, Stevie. Take it from an old English teacher!

11 Oct 2020 23:19:11
Yes interchangeable, but the first was more common for a question, so if possible, more right, sort of.
