Sloppy Loppy has at 2 pm just received contract offer. 3 years on 5m basic, plus a whole variety of bonuses, team building, transfers, budget, too be discussed, , As I mentioned the other day I thought he might get the job, , only things in the way, are footballing concerns not financial, let's see how this pans out, wether it suits all parties

If true, Is he really an upgrade on Moyes, ?

24 Apr 2024 19:28:47
Not in my own opinion stevie, the saving grace, might be differing. Transfer ideas, and how quick WH want big squad changes, but at this moment of writing he is UNFORTUNATELY the front runner, I was hoping for better, but you never know,

25 Apr 2024 07:09:50
Very disappointing but hey, SULLIVAN and his members know who's best. let's all trust in SULLIVAN and he will get the right man for the job he he lol

25 Apr 2024 19:20:13
Sullivan is a clown. If he goes for Lopetuigui, he will piss of the fans and Tim stiedten in one swoop.

I can see he thinks this is a safer bet and cheaper alternative to the other names linked. Maybe the thinking is that the other younger progressive managers will need to do change the squad more drastically that what lop would. Imo the only players worth keeping are the ones that would be able to play more progressive football anyway.

Generally think he's the worse option out of all the managers we've been linked to so far.

27 Apr 2024 16:16:01
Lopetegui was never getting the job . It was a combination of the media and certain fan channels fanning the flames . Knowing it was going to piss off the fanbase . Good for one side to point fingers at our fanbase. The others only want viewers .

24 Apr 2024 08:04:43
According to a report from David Sullivan confidants, Spanish coach Julen Lopetegui and Lille manager Paulo Fonseca have agreed deals in principle to become the new West Ham boss (so, if that's the case why are we still looking around at other managers. Why offer them it in the first place if we didn't want them. Its laughable)

A recent report claimed that the Hammers have offered Lopetegui a three-year deal to take over at the London Stadium.

Meanwhile, it has been suggested that 51-year-old Fonseca is firmly on the radar of the West Ham baord as well, and for me, I'd prefer Fonseca

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Apr 2024 11:52:46
And contrary to that, Fonseca's representatives are also apparently in TALKS with Liverpool!

24 Apr 2024 15:52:39
Hope it's not lopetegui

24 Apr 2024 16:20:48
Apparently there are a few at the club advising Sullivan to be cautious about appointing Lopetegui.

24 Apr 2024 22:23:54
Slot will be next Liverpool manager. So, Fornesca is available should they want him.

25 Apr 2024 07:11:50
Out of the current names being banded about, Fonseca would be my shout aswell Daisy! what's the betting we end up with NEIL WARNOCK or SAM ALLARDYCE

25 Apr 2024 18:25:01
Who are the 'confidants'. Do you know them?

23 Apr 2024 09:27:00
Pedro Sepúlveda claims that talks with West Ham were 'not positive', and that 'something went wrong' to prompt such a swift return to Portugal. Sporting has a huge game against Porto on Sunday, so it was presumably never likely to be more than a flying visit (although the team has been given Tuesday and Wednesday off), but a move to the London Stadium appears far from a foregone conclusion.

"Something went wrong" (has Sulliva written all over it). The plane that took Rúben Amorim to London this afternoon is already returning to Lisbon. The coach who is still negotiating with LFC and met WestHam
Officials for the first time today is back in Lisbon. The meeting was not positive

Agree4 Disagree0

23 Apr 2024 11:54:05
That bloke has been getting hammered in his comments for talking sh*t over the last few weeks. Said he flew back early but the flight was always scheduled for that departure according to comments.

23 Apr 2024 15:23:09
The meeting centered on a 3 season change at WH, with Steidten and Sullivan, thinking we can change gradually, over 5/6 windows Amorim. Wants immediate change (can’t blame him for that ) The volume of players not wanted is large …. Sounds great, but who is going to want Ings at £125k a week for example, and irregardless of how much money we have to spend, and it’s healthy, can we get in the amount of fresh players required in this window, I mentioned yesterday that a visit to us looks like leverage, for what I don’t know, I would love to see him at WH, but no club can do this turnaround it’s impossible , so unless something changes Amorim can be forgotten

23 Apr 2024 15:37:50
I love how we have an endless list of Candidates apparently and yet, SULLIVAN hasn't made his mind up on MOYES yet LMFAO so why talk to other managers? What an absolute shambles already! Only SULLIVAN

24 Apr 2024 07:01:09
Amorim didn't meet Sullivan. The dwarf was engaged elsewhere. Not even he can be blamed here . If anyone thinks he's the one picking the manager. Think again.

24 Apr 2024 13:34:30
Reports today that Amorin went to sullivans house and Sullivan didn't fancy him ? if sullivan is making the decision we are bang in trouble leave it to stiedten and noble

24 Apr 2024 14:10:10
Hammer 7580, don’t know where you are getting your info from mate, Sullivan greeted Amorim, then Steidten. Did a presentation, , Sullivan went home , met the Portuguese to talk finance , in private at his house, NOT that it matters, from what I understand, Sullivan offered 200k a week plus bonuses, should equal 12 m a year, a large amount on transfers plus all sales, BUT if you note I alluded to the fact we might be being used for leverage, and that’s exactly what it looks like, , regards to you

24 Apr 2024 15:54:21
Yeah Hammer7580, it seems Sullivan did wine and dine Amorim lol

22 Apr 2024 18:28:34
Seen a lot of reports saying that Ruben Amorim has flown to London with his agent on a private jet supplied by West Ham ?

Agree8 Disagree0

22 Apr 2024 19:42:02
I'm a massive fan of this guy. He'd be an absolute revelation for us.

22 Apr 2024 20:14:54
This is exactly the type of manager we should be targeting, of course it could be made up but imagine a combo of him and Tim together, would give us all a massive lift!

22 Apr 2024 21:05:23
Now I've actually sat down and thought about it, the cynic in me wonders how long the club will keep quiet and not deny or confirm this rumour in order to perpetuate some positive hype, only to declare that Moyes has signed a new 4 year contract at the end of the season. Either that or Moyes goes and we get someone equally as uninspiring as a replacement.

I mean, I would just love this rumour to be true and for us to sign Amorim, but let's be honest with ourselves here, he has a £20M release clause at Sporting and there is no way on Gods' Green Earth that Sullivan is going to splash that kind of money on an "unproven in the PL manager" no matter who he is or how good he is.

I really wanted there to be some substance to this story but I'm now 99% certain that it's all pie in the sky.

22 Apr 2024 22:48:13
Be careful what you wish for though ?? if we end up with Amorin all those pundits better quiet

23 Apr 2024 06:29:37
Hmmmm, I see that AMORIM's Agents have said that if he is offered the job, he would accept, however, I also see that APPARENTLY, the board have still not made a decision on DAVID MOYES (this has got SULLIVAN Written all over it) . Anything to get in the news.

If we are in talks with AMORIM, and we sent a private p[lane for him, I would suggest we wine and dine him and impress out of him because he is just the sort of manager we need.

19 Apr 2024 14:26:28
Hmmmm reports coming out that we've offered contract to maurizio sarri?

Agree10 Disagree0

19 Apr 2024 18:43:31
That's a Sullivan appointment. Luckily from what's been said and I suspect it's correct. Tuchel Silva Alexander blessin and Antonio Oliveira are way more likely.

21 Apr 2024 20:36:25
3 year deal offered to lopetegui

21 Apr 2024 22:45:41
Is it lopetegui or Sarri. You’ve written we’ve offered both contracts?

22 Apr 2024 04:03:55
What part of ‘rumours’ don’t you understand Mike?

22 Apr 2024 16:34:30
Well so far, according to reports, we have spoken to Sarri, Lopetegui, today Ruben Amorim and we are also interested in Marco Silva and Graham Potter, so the usual scattergun approach with nobody firm in mind! I might have to SPELL this for Brooking10!

22 Apr 2024 16:55:58
I think the massive buy out clause for ruben amorim will be easily enough to discourage Sullivan!

16 Apr 2024 18:07:00
Just heard couple of things, first it may not be goodbye to Antonio, in June as WH may use 1 year option, to keep him as extra striker, and try to move Ings on, ( not likely on his wages ) Antonio may be happy to stay on, it's under debate, with the player . also Man City only want to pay £50m for paqueta plus a player, WH have responded, in talks £85 m is the buyout price, but they could be interested in a player or two, one of the players of interest is GK Ortega, don't 'know the others, Man United, have now made clear their interest in Paqueta, but have yet to make any move , early days, but wheels are turning .going to be very interesting. Window coming up with new restrictions coming into force, WH looking for 2/3 free transfers, MY QUESTION why let JOHNSON go Unless he just wants out, we shall see how this turns out

Agree14 Disagree0

16 Apr 2024 20:06:56
I would hope that we sort the manager position out before we decide on any transfers?

18 Apr 2024 18:10:26
Joyful Hammer, ?Great news for me re Antonio, well documented on here that I am a big big Antonio fan, really hope he stays?Not worried about the Paqueta saga, he’s going anyway, unfortunately Kudus will go which will be a great shame and if we can hang on to Bowen??Hope his Father in law can influence him to stay??⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

19 Apr 2024 18:31:16
Kudas isn't leaving. i'd wager money over that . No doubt you're believing the Liverpool rumours . Pacqueta is going the others ain't . especially when you see who the incoming investors are .

19 Apr 2024 20:15:24
Who are the new investors?

I know the Gold family were putting shares up for sale, but didn’t think there had been any interest?

19 Apr 2024 20:18:59
Again, how on earth can we make decisions on who is coming and going before we have a new manager? What if the new manager does or does not want players?

15 Apr 2024 14:44:02
Apparently? Yes, here we go again, its silly season and as always we underbid for a player. Seemingly we've bid £13m for Mohamed Amoura from UNION SG but they want £17m. Wolves and a few other clubs are also interested in the ALGERIAN who has real pace, works the channels but is a much better finisher than ANTONIO (so is my 14 year old)!

Agree13 Disagree0

15 Apr 2024 18:32:23
I think we need to sort out who the next manager is before we start targeting any players!

16 Apr 2024 13:54:13
Up to twelve players could be departing the club, potentially requiring significant squad turnover. Adding to the pressure, some key players like Soucek and Coufal might also need replacements.

Steidten’s recent trip to Brazil suggests a search for young talents with potential, a shift away from expensive established players. This strategy could unearth hidden gems like Paqueta or Kudus at bargain prices.

Steidten’s challenge is clear: rebuild a potentially depleted West Ham squad with limited financial resources. His ability to identify and acquire young talent will be crucial for the club’s future success.

04 Apr 2024 07:12:37
Seemingly, Man UTD face competitiion froM WEST HAM in the summer chasing the signature of Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana. I'm fairly sure we were very interested in him in the past and Moyes said NO!. what's the betting Man Utd get him and then they let ERIKSON, Casemeiro and or Mctominay go and we buy the players surplus to requirements.

Agree22 Disagree0

04 Apr 2024 15:05:08
Would love to see Youssouf Fofana in claret and blue.

05 Apr 2024 14:14:12
If the new investors are who I suspect they are . There genuinely won't be too many players out of reach for the club.

05 Apr 2024 16:59:43
Moyes wanted jwp over fofana ?

05 Apr 2024 19:53:29
Yep, jwp was moyes choice whereas TS was trying for Fofana at £30m I believe

06 Apr 2024 17:26:10
We should get McTominay in if the opportunity re-arises this summer window. A much improved player whom had added attacking and goals to his game ( so Moyes unlikely to be interested now ) .

06 Apr 2024 21:15:07
I'm undecided about him tbh, but I think what really puts me off is the price tag Utd would no doubt stick on him. If reports of a release clause are to be believed, we're going to lose Paq for only £50M and I can honestly see Utd, because they're Utd, asking much more than that for McTominay. Sorry, but that ain't a fair deal at all!

I really, really hope we're not in the situation this summer where we sell Paq for £50M then go out and then spend it all on Scottish DM, who in the real world is worth less than half of that.

07 Apr 2024 08:11:47
I’ve called him McThuginay for years. Basically Fellaini 2.0

…which makes him right up Moyse’s street.

03 Apr 2024 18:11:01
Eds, is it likely to be true that any new contract offered to Moyse will remove his veto from buying players? If so, I can’t imagine him signing it. He couldn’t cope without the power and would hate that Steidten has more influence.

{Ed002's Note - For me, it is understood that his struggles with David Moyes are very much based on how Moyes utilises the players he has rather than over specific transfers. I would expect West Ham to move Moyes on before letting Steidten depart.}

Agree20 Disagree0

03 Apr 2024 22:57:20
Thx for your reply. I bloody well hope that your view proves to be true.

02 Apr 2024 22:17:34
Fair result, we had the chance to win it, Antonio gave his all , but he's never been a clinical finisher, thing to note spurs made 5 subs, we never made one, that is the difference between the clubs, we have NO bench,

Agree19 Disagree0

03 Apr 2024 10:34:21
We really don't have a bench. We've basically spent £450m on a squad of 14 players that includes 2 goalkeepers.

03 Apr 2024 13:11:29
This is ALL down to Moyes, he turned away three players in January, and signed Phillips, all of these players that could easily make our team, on top of that he vetoed Gudmonsen early in January whereas Genoa had been ready to accept 24 m euros, a proven goal scorer, this man, Ings cornet cresswell etc are a drop in quality, In reality only Johnson can be brought on, and he’s leaving soon anyway, we have a 14 player first team squad at present, that’s. It and One of the main reasons, WH must part with Moyes, there is a light at end of tunnel though if he chooses to sign the new contract offered, he will not be able to veto any players, as he has been able to at present, until seasons end no injuries or suspensions we are ok, if not we are in trouble, that’s it rant over

03 Apr 2024 14:02:18
He won't VETO them, he simply won;t play them or when he does he will play them out of position and then treat them like he did Benrahma. Its ok, we know what sort of a man he is and what little respect he has for the decisions of others! Sooner he goes the better

03 Apr 2024 15:00:20
It's says it all about Sullivan. When he allows Moyes . To decimate the squad . Purely because he's fell out with them . Benrhama fornals vlasic kral and strongly suspect agured has joined them . There's strong rumours he and ings don't speak either it's like mourinho at spurs . Only difference being levy has a backbone .

03 Apr 2024 16:11:55
That was apparently our 42nd game already this season . They can play a maximum 41 in all . They have a squad we don't . Cheers dwarf.

03 Apr 2024 16:50:27
In this particular case it’s Sullivan. That was furious with Moyes, in January, as he had already given the nod on all four players, mentioned, then Moyes gave them all the no no, he only wanted the disastrous Phillips that’s why new contract would be entirely different, Moyes is SOLELY to blame for no bench, Sullivan and Steidten totally blameless, Steidten wanted to know what he had been employed for? He was wasting his time and efforts, for Moyes to Turn his back on decent players, it was a crazy situation, it’s not going to happen again, Moyes might try to renegotiate the contract, so he’s in charge of transfer business again. But it’s not going to happen, otherwise it’s goodbye to Steidten and his. Clique they will be off
