Some interesting Patson Daka media noise.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2021 14:27:46
He is some player . Would love to see us sign him.

10 Jan 2021 15:04:56
We are being linked by the media to anyone and everyone, we wait and see but not surprised if either we sign no-one or Arnie returns.

11 Jan 2021 08:07:17
exwhuemployee has said on his pateron that our main 3 targets are daka, dia and adam armstrong.

11 Jan 2021 10:29:16
I just read all the rumours on news sites and it appears we will have 5 new strikers by next week - happy days, the options we will have at our disposal is fantastic - or is this just the standard transfer window where we will get someone on the last day who was our fourth choice?

11 Jan 2021 10:42:35
I'd be happy with any of them 3.

11 Jan 2021 11:03:53
After loosing a mint on Hallar i would leave overseas players alone unless they are under 5mil. or have already have played in our Prem. or Championship.
Hallar was a big lose and it looks like we are going to take another big hit on Anderson.
We picked our best foreward AM from stoke, a lot of clubs are struggling now, its time to look in our own back yard. We can't afford another buying another 20 mil player who can't handle the English game.
Clubs look at overseas payer and the do look good in the French league but its a big gamble if they can adapt to our league Chelea have brought 3 forwards 240mil. not one of them would replace a fit Antonio,

11 Jan 2021 15:57:01
I agree Bideford, it is important Moyes and the board choose wisely. France may be a place to pick up bargains ATM but still NO guarnatee they will transition to PL. Dia and Daka have pace and LOOK like they have the physical attributes we need, and they are young and fit the "young and hungry" RedBull mantra Moyes is after. But will they transition or just be another Batshuayi?
Josh King however does offer proven PL quality though, and at the right price i think he would be a good option for us. At 28 though he will not represent much of a return on investment once he has played two years with us. While I agree (and said myself) that he has played a lot out wide in the past (worth noting if any of you look at his scoring stats), but from going to a LOT of Bmouth games (i live here and had a season ticket to accompany my nephew) i always said to my Bmouth mates that Josh is at his BEST up front and not out wide.
I really do not know enough about the others to have a worthwhile opinion, other than Youtube vids. Maybe Ed's can lend us their opinions on whether they could cut it in the PL.

{Ed001's Note - don't know anything about Dia, but Daka does look a bit special. Bit too fond of talking about how great he is going to become though, which worries me. If he was going to say Real Madrid, then that's not so much of a problem, but going to West Ham might see him agitate for a move because he thinks he is better than the Hammers. Bit like Arnautovic did etc.

As for Armstrong, I have seen a little bit of him this season, he has changed so much from when I saw him as a kid with Newcastle. So much improvement playing regular football and looks like the kind of player Moyes would work well with. I am not so sure King is, as he is too fragile, and Moyes likes his players to work hard, King would pop his hamstring. Armstrong looks a decent bet, though he is not one I would have expected Moyes to be so keen on as he looks short when I have seen him. Moyes normally likes a player, in pretty much every position, who is particularly good in the air.}

11 Jan 2021 16:56:57
He's under 6ft 5'8 i think I read which is definitely small for moyes, but needs must maybe?

{Ed001's Note - maybe he is learning to work a different way? Moyes has had a lot of time to think about things, so maybe he is evolving his football ideology a bit.}

11 Jan 2021 17:16:39
He likes the red bull model and is definitely moving to a young strong and motivated squad, maybe he has had his eyes opened to new ways, let's see shall we Ed.

12 Jan 2021 09:11:40
moyes likes the red bull model problem is you need owners to help fund that to but our owner is to busy adding his son and wife to our board of directors.

12 Jan 2021 11:28:41
Im. keeping an open mind :) forever optimistic.

09 Jan 2021 14:46:56
I've read one report saying that we have been in preliminary talks to sign Josh king?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2021 16:11:25
I hope not. He’s not a long time solution to our problem. He’s not ripping up trees in the championship at the moment either. His injury history also worries me.
He’s really a winger and although Moyes has converted both Arnautovic and Antonio into strikers doesn’t mean he’ll be 3rd time lucky.
Josh King would be a great third choice striker for us but isn’t the answer to our current requirements.

09 Jan 2021 16:40:10
Not for me either. Haller’s departure is an opportunity to push forward with a striker who is going to be a major upgrade. That’s not King.

09 Jan 2021 23:39:29
Boulaye dia.

10 Jan 2021 01:27:43
But in the January transfer window normally difficult to get deals over the line and teams tend to bump the price up given our current league position and the next 2/ 3 games could see us on 30 plus points and not even the end of Jan like iron al said don’t rest on our laurels so if DM decided to bring in a free transfer or loan and promoted one of the youngsters to the 1st team like you said markro about the poor quality of striker we have bought in the past so if dm want to wait till the summer to get the right it’s good we me.

10 Jan 2021 09:56:06
I think king would be a decent addition got great pace which we need and can also play out wide, won't break the bank either.

10 Jan 2021 13:37:00
I can't shake the feeling that after Moyes false #9 comments we're not going to sign a striker this window. Madness. We're not Man City. Just because they can do it does not mean we should. To compare us to them is laughable and asking for a lot of trouble.

10 Jan 2021 14:10:25
Moving first Arnautovic, then Antonio, to central striker, worked because of their speed, power and work rate.

We do not have anyone of that ilk in the rest of the squad.

10 Jan 2021 14:36:16
Take Antonio and masuaku out the team and we have no raw pace. That needs to be addressed.

Agree Billy its alarming Moyes is trying to play it down we need a striker its simple as that. The wealth of attacking talent at mancity is ridiculous they are one of the most successful passing teams on the planet under pep, where we regularly concede possession and let the other team have the ball, Moyes needs to calm down with any comparisons there.

Just buy boulaye dia, sima or king and get let's enjoy the rest of the season. The door is definitely open on dia and King. Personally think we could get both and that would give us all types of options.

08 Jan 2021 19:59:23
Is there any truth in the West Ham links to Moises Caicedo eds?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware and WHU have others they will look to to replace Declan Rice if he leaves.
Moises Caicedo (CM/DM/AM) My understanding is that he impressed when Manchester United were following up on looking at another player who they had first seen in the Real Sociedad reserves. There has been interest in Caicedo from other sides including Ajax, Atlanta, Inter Miami, PSV and Chelsea. Someone senior at Chelsea is very keen. I am not aware of any approach by Everton but an independent scout who has worked for Everton in South America attended games to watch him in September and October.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2021 21:20:18
Thanks Ed.

08 Jan 2021 22:56:13
Excellent info. Thx Ed 002.

08 Jan 2021 18:24:18
Chaps, another name just come into the mix is Arsenal forward Eddie Nkeitah? Could he be too lightweight and get knocked off the ball too easily, haven't really taken a lot of notice of him so don't know that much about him?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2021 22:58:59
Trim CFs are rare and always targeted by hefty centre halves.

Having said that, judge a striker by his goal involvement.

09 Jan 2021 16:15:55
Hi Lads. Eddie Nkethia is 5 foot 11 tall. So only an inch short of 6 foot so he’s no weakling.
He is blessed with speed which is ideal for the system we play. Him and Antonio bombing forward at speed would be a joy to watch and a fearsome sight to any defence.
Nketiah is also a great finisher and will get better and better.
Personally I see him being a stalwart in the England squad within 3 years.

09 Jan 2021 17:25:37
COYI, tend to Agee with your assessment of Nkethia, speed is a great asset for any clubs to have, in fact essential in my view in all teams! It seen a lot of him so will remain on the fence about him! Josh King 9 years older, injury problems, why do we want another with known injury history. Yes The Arsenal lad has a broken but I don’t think that will affect him long term? Other alternative is try from the youngsters? Not to many want to part in the Premiership January window unless it’s from the big squad Premiership teams, so choices very limited? Other choice have a look at Soucek’s suggestions, really impressed with a lot of the Eastern Euros, toughies and grafters👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

08 Jan 2021 13:31:58
What do we need in this window? And let's be realistic, it comes down to two positions really, and maybe a 3rd.
1 - A striker now that Haller is gone and we cannot rely on Mikey's fitness. Josh King for me would be good at the right price as he has PL experience and the right attributes. Just means we would have two strikers who have for a long part of their careers been wingers. Whoever we get, i'd like to see some PACE and strength.
2 - CM compteition/ cover for Dec and Soucek. We have been linked with Kral and Diawara, BOTH look decent. Diawara for me, but only becasue I know more about him. Ed's, any chance of these?
3 - Left back cover for Masuaku. Johnson can play there, but we need genuine left footed cover.

{Ed002's Note - (1) Josh King (S) Newcastle have had an offer for JK rejected and offers may well be coming from West Ham and West Brom

(2) Amadou Diawara (DM) Leicester may provide an option if Roma sell. If Rice were to leave West Ham they could also look to him.
Alex Kral (DM) who would be an out-and-out Declan Rice replacement from Spartak. He shares an agent with Vladimir Coufal and there has been a dicscussion.

(3) I am not sure WHU see this as a priority. Is there nobody in the U23s who can cover?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2021 15:33:23
I agree Nick, a Forward, a central midfielder and a defender are probably needed.

Josh King seems like he is going to be an expensive signing this transfer window given the other clubs interested. So I am not sure he is who we'll go for. However, I would love to see us go for him or at least some one similar to him.

Alex Kral would be a great shout and he seems like a realistic option.

I am not sure a left back is the priority at the moment, I think Masuaku is the first choice left wing back and if we were to sign a centre back this window, Cresswel could potentially be used as a Masuaku back up?

08 Jan 2021 16:31:25
I’m not convinced by King, though Moyse likes PL ready made players, as opposed to those he has to wean in.

If it’s not King, then I think Moyse will push for Arnautovic. I know he’s no longer a young ‘un, but Moyse knows him inside out and he’s a centre back’s nightmare.

Coufal should give him confidence that Czech players are tough enough to put Kral firmly on the menu.

I think we’ve got enough cover in the back 4/ 5.

08 Jan 2021 16:49:29
i think we all agree J. King is who we should go for. not sure we need someone else in the back line as Masuaku will be back hopefully next week i would sooner have another mid fielder as we need cover for Dec. and Soucek but the good news is Hallar has gone i do hope he does well in the dutch legue.

08 Jan 2021 17:08:27
Bideford, you might not wish H so much luck if you read Stevie’s post on H first statement on arriving at Ajax👎👎.

08 Jan 2021 20:52:52
Personally, I don’t rate King. His injury record is not the best. We’d be better off with Giroud or Abrahams.

08 Jan 2021 21:49:03
I don't think Giroud would get the service with the way moyes sets up. I agree kings injury record isn't the best we might end up playing with makeshift strikers if him and Antonio were both injured.

Pace is what we need someone always making runs creating space for the attacking midfielders and providing an early out let. Antonio is soo good at it with his pace power and work ethic. Many times we have knocked the ball into the channels and he somehow gets on the end of it.

Definitely light in midfield soucek and rice playing 90 minutes every week and they are non stop last thing we need is an injury to either one of those.

Longelo could do a job at LWB. Was it Harrison Ashby the young RB that did well for us then for injured? i'd also like to see Coventry get some opportunities ahead of Noble.

Youd think we would have a concrete replacement lined up for Haller. Considering antonios injury record.

10 Jan 2021 09:45:02
We offered Bournemouth £13m for King last summer allegedly. He now has 6 months left on his contract, therefore the £13m would be reduced considerably to £8 or £9m. In today’s market £8-9m is small fry. At that price King is worth a wager. I’m not a fan of his, yet for the amount it’s a no brainier.
Haller makes his debut today at Ajax, what’s the odds he scores a hat-trick!

11 Jan 2021 05:14:15
What about ismalia sarr from watford plays as a winger or up front where i think its hus best position his pace is frightening i understand he's out with an ankle injury whilst playing for senegal.

08 Jan 2021 09:58:55
It’s official. Haller has gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2021 10:52:23
Yep, but what's the plan we wonder?

08 Jan 2021 12:34:36
I don’t think they will drag out finding a replacement as we’ve got a good winnable run of games coming up so we need a striker to give us the best possible chance of winning those games and maybe getting us to our best finish in the prem since it started.

08 Jan 2021 13:23:17
TBH I am delighted we are acting and not standing still in this window. Haller is still a very good footballer, BUT the guy just doesn't suit Moyes's football, and does not have the attributes we need for our system. Moyes was stubborn by not adapting slightly, but I really like to see that we are TAKING ACTION to get what Moyes wants/ needs despite taking a financial loss on Haller. Board could have easily said no we are not taking a loss this big. Credit to the BOARD and credit to MOYES. Let's hope Moyes doesn't buy another Hugill to replace him . I have faith.
I'd also like to correct fans on here who have been saying he does not work hard. You are frankly wrong in my opinion. He does work hard and run, he just doesn't have the attributes to do it the way we want/ need. For this reason I am very happy we are selling. We need PACE, and Haller simply doesn't have it. Don't ask a man to give birth!
Haller has worked hard in what has clearly been a role he cannot play, and that must be very frustrating for him but i still belive he gave it his best shot. I wish him all the best at Ajax.

07 Jan 2021 19:17:15
West Ham have accepted Ajax £20m offer For Haller.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2021 20:29:36
So who is a realistic target to replace Haller?

07 Jan 2021 22:51:43
Haller Sorry to say he just didn't work hard enough.
How much will DM get to improve the squad that is the question!

07 Jan 2021 23:08:56
Well if haller does go let's hope it don't drag on and on getting someone in.

08 Jan 2021 07:50:20
Markwhu, I will feel vindicated on my continual harsh criticisms of Haller if the deal goes through? At least the Management feel the same as us critics, so we all couldn’t have been wrong, despite protestations about playing him out of position? Only trouble is, other clubs will now push up their prices knowing our need for an Antonio partner? Maybe look at some Soucek recommendations, if Coufal was one, what a player/ bargain he has been? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

08 Jan 2021 12:16:35
Chelmsford me old mate your wish just came good. Sad but he really never looked like he wanted to be their even with goal of the month last month. Never seemed to smile.

08 Jan 2021 14:22:01
merceri, yes well pleased he’s departed, completely unsuited for the rough and tumble of the Premiership, which is no disgrace anyway! He should do better at Ajax as he will be playing for the equivalent of any of the top 3 here and if you can’t score with top calibre players around you, then you are lucky any decent club wants you! Ajax are in pole position and their league is not as competitive as the Premiership! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

09 Jan 2021 04:00:04
Haller will score a bundle at Ajax as they play seriously attacking football, plus the Dutch league is inferior!
We let Haller go for £25m deficit. I wonder if there is a sell on clause?
Be good if we can get rid of Anderson now, although we’d be lucky to get £10m.

07 Jan 2021 00:34:23
Ajax have this evening 'supposedly' made a £20m bid for Haller. If we can get £30m I'd sell him.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2021 05:48:36
I think we’re also interested in one of their players, (Lassina Traore) so maybe a deal can be done?

07 Jan 2021 08:20:04
Markwhu, if that’s true, snatch their hands off, £20m would be a dream, offloading £6m a year wages as well, that’s equivalent obviously to £26m for him, 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉TAXI, ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

07 Jan 2021 09:19:31
When I saw this news, I thought, Chelmsford is a lucky boy, Christmas has come twice for him!

It’s a shame because he has the ability, but if it frees up funds to get Josh King I’ll be happy overall. We probably still owe Frankfurt £10mil ish in payments, so we’ll only actually be getting 10-15 mil to re-invest in a player.

Shifting Anderson on would be the best business we could do this window, although I’ll doubt anyone will want a winger who doesn’t even make the squad for Porto.

07 Jan 2021 10:46:59
I will hold my hand up and accept what we have seen from Haller in a West Ham shirt has not been to the standard we expected / hoped. I will say though, I think he is walking, talking proof of a poorly planned transfer. We signed him off the back of an outstanding season in Germany whereby he played as part of a front two that was often a front three. Jovic, Haller and Rebic as a front three were spectacular.

We haven't regularly played to Hallers strengths in my opinion. Instead we've put him in to a system and expected him to perform to the same levels based on the players we have that play that system well. Antonio.

07 Jan 2021 10:51:03
🤣😂Appreciate the thought TK, but rumours are just what they are until the deal is done, 🤞🤞🎉Wolves are sniffing around as well🤔🤔Anderson is certainly an enigma to me, maybe some top players acquire such enormous wealth, invest it sensibly then they lose the energy and enthusiasm for the daily rigours of training and Football especially if they have created businesses for the future that can take up a lot of time? ⚒⚒⚒.

07 Jan 2021 10:47:28
Eds. is there any interest in Anderson this window?

{Ed002's Note - The player is very keen to return to Lazio but Andreas Pereira on loan so a vacancy won't arise in his preferred AM position until the summer. WHU can pay off Porto and look for someone else to take him on loan as they have no need for him - which they may well do, else they know his value will fall away.}

07 Jan 2021 15:42:19
If keep Haller until the summer and hope his form improves. £20 mill is just not enough lads. I know his form isn’t great which is why the offer was half of what we paid. However, we should still be able to recoup £25-30 mil.
We also have to find a replacement and Josh King also played alongside Wilson at Bournemouth so would our system fit him?
I would try to get a striker in on loan and try him up front with Haller to see if his form will improve. We would have still needed an additional striker anyway right? If having the additional striker doesn’t improve his form, then let him go in the summer when we can dictate a better price. By then stadiums will be full and we won’t be held to ransom.

07 Jan 2021 15:44:30
Anderson is another story. It’s not about ability with him it’s about desire. He seems to have lost his desire for playing football. This seems evident if he cannot get into the Porto side.
The only people we can blame are Pellegrini and Husillos.
Did they make a good buy at all when they were at West Ham. The only one who gets a start out of everyone they bought is Balbuena.

07 Jan 2021 15:48:37
Stevie66. Lassina Traore was only played for the Ajax reserves for a year. Do we need a Dutch reserve player?
Look he may be OK but he may not be. I think we should really consider this. Do we need to take another gamblle?
I wouldn’t
He may have scored 22 goals in 33 games for the reserves but against who? 🙄🙄😳😳😳.

07 Jan 2021 18:45:15
Its crazy to think that if Haller goes we would not have one striker in the squad who was actually purchased as a striker even then haller wasn't an out and out striker he had Jovic and rebic getting beyond him.

The amount we lose on transfers is all down to gold and a sullivan for me they've been at West ham for quite sometime now and its only really looking like we have abit more of a strategy in the market since moyes has come in even now with what moyes the club it is so far away from having a solid recruitment set up he definitely has his work cut out for him, I'm sure I read he wanted some kind of director of football in place.


Also we can't loan another player as max is 2 at the same time.

Eds? How would you rate our chances of moussa demebele coming in? he's out of form which surely increases our chances out of the strikers we have been linked to in my opinion he's the best and as they say form is temporary class is permanent!

{Ed002's Note - I think that he would consider the options that he has and I am not so sure WHU would eb attractive to Moussa Dembele.

The options seem to be:
Moussa Dembele (S) has not reacted well to being on the bench for a few games and with Tino Kadewere proving his worth Lyon are open to selling. There has been a discussion with a couple of sides already but neither could offer him a starting role. Atletico Madrid hope to be able to offering the guarantees he wants and whilst he is not top of their list of replacements the player has said he is open to a move to Spain. David Moyes is a known fan of the player and might well see him as an option at the right price for West Ham.
Boulaye Dia (S) Reims striker who would need to considerably improve his strike rate but has been of interest to West Ham, Brighton, Everton and Marseille. Says he wants to play for Lyon.
Mariano Diaz (S) It is true that Real Madrid have the representatives of Mariano Diaz offering him around on ideally a loan to buy option as they continue to clear the decks ready for a summer spending spree. Diaz is an out and out striker who had a very good season at Lyon three years ago but is simply not good enough for Real Madrid where the goals return has been well below average. He has rejected loans to several clubs already inclding West Brom and Brighton - West Ham may offer solution but commiting to an obligation to buy may not be wise.
Marcus Forss (S) Brentford Striker being considered by Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. New contract so he can be forgotten.
Olivier Giroud (S) Numerous clubs have an interest but will stay at Chelsea until the summer.
Moussa Marega (S) seen by West Ham as a cheap option able to sign on a Pre-Contract in January. But perhaps no longer first choice.}

07 Jan 2021 22:03:46
See some rumours about Nzola any truth in those? He would certainly fit Moyes style of play.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't hold your breath, he has only just moved - 3 months ago.}

08 Jan 2021 19:48:05
Thanks ed.

06 Jan 2021 16:11:17
It looks like Snodgrass is off to West Brom?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2021 17:25:22
Wish him well if he is? I like Snoddy, seems a good professional and grafter, not getting much game time now with us, so good luck Snods👍.

06 Jan 2021 17:49:50
Been an up and down career with us don't forget he had a year out on loan Villa was it but last year thought he was one of our better players age doesn't fit the Moyes profile either.

06 Jan 2021 19:14:02
Totally agree chelms, big fan of snoddy all the way back at Leeds, top player top professional and a great guy to have around the changing room, brings the laughter to the party aswell by all accounts. Good luck to the guy if he goes, wish the lad all the best. Always a⚒.

07 Jan 2021 10:10:49
i agree about snoddy hasn't had much game time lately time to move on. I wish him good luck and sorry to see him go, not sorry to see Hallar go he just hasn't lived up to his price tag has no pace hope Ajax works out for him, if he goes let's hope a large chunk of the money goes to DM to get a decent centre forward to replace him.

07 Jan 2021 22:39:50
It can't be blamed on moyes for hallers form but he shouldn't have been targeted if he wasnt going to be used to suit him you don't pay €45 million for a player and not playto his strength i do think dm should have tried 2 up front for a run of games that's why managers get paud gokd money to change systems and tactics to suit your best players it has worked with cresswell on the left of 3 C/ Bs so why not accomidate 2 up front.

03 Jan 2021 19:21:06
I've seen a couple of reports suggesting we could be after Arnautovic on loan, we couldn't do that unless we sign permanently or send back either Dawson or Benrahma as we've used up our loan options, I'm sure it's just speculation, Arnautovic not for me, he can stay in China with his brother as far as I'm concerned!

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2021 00:07:04
i agree with u mate i would also like Dawson who has done a decent job, not the fastest but neither was ginger Pelle. Dawason is a good honest pro that has done well when called apon and that leaves a place to sign another lone player but not MA. he sold himself for coin. traitors should not be forgiven.
Hallar and Diop should be sold to get another centre forward any news on Masuaku i heard a rumour he's doing light training any confirmation on him.

04 Jan 2021 03:49:04
Don’t think it has any legs. Just poor journalism in my view off of the back of the managers comments about finding another Arnie in the squad.

04 Jan 2021 22:21:10
I agree lads. Marko can sling his hook. He will bring issues and bad vibes into the changing room.
I wouldn’t sell Diop and think he will become a stalwart for West Ham moving forward. Ogbonna and Balbuena won’t be around for ever and we need a player who can develop to step into one of those positions in the future.
I feel a little sorry for Haller. He has no pace and we know it but he’s always left up front as a loan striker. When he was in Germany he played as a second striker with two up front and we haven’t given him the opportunity to play in that formation. We either play a system that suits him or sell him. If we sell him, it wouldn’t be his fault but the fact that he just doesn’t fit into our system of play. If he played upfront with Antonio, the two of them could reek havoc in opposition boxes.

05 Jan 2021 09:13:08
I disagree Marko would fit perfectly into our system, he is miles better than anything else we are likely to get -moyes got the best out of him there are no supporters in stadiums so he won't get fan pressure, the biggest problem was his brother who was also his agent, plus he's arrogant enough to come in be a hit and not care what anyone else thinks a couple of goals and supporters will be back on side anyway.

COYI, I agree with your first paragraph👍 However sorry mate when I see the H name mentioned, it’s a red rag to a Bull🤣😂You can be played out of your position in most places, but show the teammates and everybody you’re willing to run and try, he is lazy and looks like he sulks, then falls over at every slight tackle, ball control is non existent, he hides up front wide to avoid getting involved?
Why should a system be changed to suit one player, he will not make a difference wherever he plays with us, he needs to go ASAP, but who would walk away from £6 million a year for a bit of training?
Worst forward that ever played for us? He can’t live off his overhead kick for the rest of his time with us? It’s a catch 22 situation for the club? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

We changed an entire system to accommodate noble in CAM so I don't see an issue changing the system to play to the strengths of a striker its pretty important in terms of scoring goals 😂. His confidence looks completely hammered though and still definitely no where near the worst striker we have had i could probably name 5 off the bat under moyes and sullivan that are worse. I think an over weight benni Mccarthy and a fat mido could make up 4 of them.

Agree Iron. Al I have seen what he can do, right now he does look like he is sulking. These days young people (god I’m getting old) it isn’t a case of just telling them get on with it, you gave to manage them all differently, he looks like someone who needs some good man management to get him back playing at his best. Unfortunately Moyes may not be that man, I don’t know.

Chelmsford. to say he is "worst forward that ever played for us" you must have an extremely short memory. May I remind you of a few, Bennie McCarthey, Savio, Miaga, Chamakh, Zaza, Calleri. and that's just the few I can remember sitting at my desk. To even suggest that he's the worst we've had is completely unjust and extremely unfair. May I also remind you, he is our top scorer this season. Fair enough a few have come in the Cups, but you can only score against what's in front of you.

I get it Chelms, you want to see a guy throw himself around on the pitch, whether it be fruitless or not, I get it, as a West Ham fan I also love to see players leaving everything on the pitch and covering every blade of grass, but it just isn't his game. He's a technical player which was evident when he banged in that bicycle kick. I'm not saying Haller is without fault, but the criticism you give this guy could almost be seen as a hate crime haha!

Hope you had a good new year - looking forward to more discussions in the second half of the season!

Have u seen Adam Hlozek sparta Prague striker? Wow, what can I say have a look.

{Ed002's Note - Adam Hlozek is a player who you will hear a lot about in the coming years.}

TK, well you’re living up to your name giving me a 🔨 Hammering😂🤣But that’s great, I can take it as well as dish it out👍But it changes nothing in my opinion about about H! I don’t worry about what’s gone on with previous signings, they’re in the past, only interested in the here and now! Interesting to know at 76 I could get my first criminal conviction for saying what I think about H😂🤣
On a lighter note, was reading we may well have Anderson back shortly as he’s done nothing at Porto, prefer him to Haller😂Sorry TK, Happy new year mate🎉🎉⚒⚒⚒.

Looks like you may be happy soon as rumour that Haller will go to Ajax. Big loss in my opinion, not on his form and what he has provided, I agree with you on that, but on what he can provide and what I think good management could get out of him.

07 Jan 2021 22:47:16
Lets see if haller does better at ajax as i'm pretty sure they have done proper scouting by knowing that he must play in a 2 up front or a attacking 3 unlike us who bought a plager and done the complete opposite although it wasnt moyes signing but moyes never gave a run of games with 2 or 3 up front but hey ho its gone now i hope he proves moyes and the board wrong by selling him at a massive loss as that's the quickest way to ruin a football club.
