I hope Noble made the Austrian baby pick his toys up and put them back in the pram before he left, we don't want anyone tripping over his dummy and getting injured!

As posted above i'm unsure about Gomez, he wants CL football and to be honest his not going to get it at WH, maybe they will sell him the so called project ( how much longer can they sell a project, is this Crossrail? ) and whack a massive buy out clause and be willing to let him go next year if CL is not achieved. i'm unsure the point in that but MP does know what his doing, so we have to trust.

With Baby boy gone and expect Hernandez to go if we do get Gomez who else is on the radar as a striker?, I think he wants a Carrol like striker as in Rondon, but that still leave us short upfront. Antonio is not bad a a make shift but he can not be added to a striker list before the season starts, unless they will keep Hernandez but I thought they were trying to off him to Valencia to clear the way for Gomez.

Have I missed some news somewhere?, if we are going to try push this season for a Europa place I would have thought we need at least 3 strikers and decent ones at that. Can anyone advise me please as all I have really heard is Gomez, or a replacement for Gomez if we don't get him.

the statement is pretty blunt haha.

08 Jul 2019 10:35:50
Ed002 has given a few names. EXWHUemployee on twitter has given a few too.
Rondon was looked at, Gomez, Belotti and supposedly Ballotelli. Who knows though, most of these guys want european footy which we cannot offer.

07 Jul 2019 23:48:45
West ham have met the Gomez price.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 00:19:08
Too much he's not worth it, I seen him play 8 times last year he's slow as, would rather get someone with pace up top, just because he's young everyone thinks he's amazing. he isn't to be honest.

08 Jul 2019 06:16:23
I kind of agree. Feel like we need pace. Although. Ashton wasn't fast but was great. Hope to be proved wrong. Pellegrino knwos what he's doing.

08 Jul 2019 09:02:15
Haven´t we go to lodge the whole amount to trigger the release clause?

If that´s the case then we haven´t met the release clause we´ve just promised to pay them the release clause money but probably in instalments which i´m sure isn´t the same!

07 Jul 2019 21:41:31
Can anyone explain the technicalities of the Gomez deal. Have we met his release clause or is it not that straightforward?

Also, is he likely to sign for us now if we have offered what Celta want?

Never thought I'd see West Ham signing a 45mil striker!

{Ed002's Note - WHU have no agreement with his club at this time. WHU want to pay the fee (equal to his termination clause) over an extended period. Ut will be up to Cekta Vigo to decide if this is acceptable to them or not - whereas I have already explained that Valencia would also need to be creative with the money.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2019 22:20:03

06 Jul 2019 22:32:31
There has been an interesting suggestion that the Huse has proposed a Chicha to Valencia deal to free the Gomez logjam.

I quite like the logic of the deal, which would give Chicha both Spanish football and CL, which he wants and would give Valencia a player they’ve been tracking for some time.

Any thought, anyone?

{Ed002's Note - Valencia already have an interest in CH but they need to be creative financially.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2019 22:42:20
Sounds promising.

06 Jul 2019 22:52:16
Is this regarding his wage? can't think we would demand a big fee for him?

07 Jul 2019 17:19:18
8-10 million is a figure mentioned.

06 Jul 2019 17:11:08
Please somebody tell me that we've not wasted another summer chasing Gomez and rondon only for one to be going to Valencia and the other going to china.

{Ed002's Note - Callum Wilson and Borja Iglesias might be next up on the list.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2019 18:37:33
We'll end up with Rondon and Llorente.

06 Jul 2019 19:07:58
Transfer season is tough ed, at least the scatter gun is in the cabinet and some reason is being shown by the recruitment team ( for now lol )

{Ed002's Note - It is tough for lots of sides - and with multiple clubs looking at the same players a good sales pitch is required. If it includes Champions League it is a bonus. West Ham are still selling a project - but they are still better off than Everton and Arsenal.}

06 Jul 2019 19:11:30
No to Wilson, his knees are shot. Don’t know enough about Inglesias.

I am, however still has lying out hope for Gomez or Belotti.

06 Jul 2019 19:31:14
*still holding out hope for.

06 Jul 2019 19:34:26
Happy with belotti and gomez. Potentially chicharito to Valencia freeing up Gomez to us.

06 Jul 2019 20:08:47
I think Belotti has had knee injuries too. We were linked to weghorst and a few other strikers should be interesting to see who we end up with. Hopefully we haven't missed a trick with Moares going to villa. I remember ed mentioning a young French striker playing in ligue 2 not the attacker arsenal wanted. I hope we can get 2 strikers in the next couple weeks would be nice!

06 Jul 2019 22:10:40
id like to see what weghorst would be like in prem i wondered if he would be anotherjansen big old lad though carrolls replacement.

{Ed002's Note - Weghorst will not be joining WHU Noel.}

06 Jul 2019 22:27:56
Is that without doubt (or w’out for short)? 😁.

07 Jul 2019 16:54:04
Why do you say we're better off than Everton and Arsenal Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Everton have been throwing money at the club with little success. They are located in a crumbling stadium in the grim, wet and cobbled streets of the Northwest of England where there would be a significant cultural change for players, smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street, little chance of football at the highest level and only chips and fried curry to eat. Arsenal have no project to sell and a management structure that is a complete mess - and with money not being spent without significant sales they will struggle to inprove. West Ham have a project to sell, a very good stadium, owners who have seen the light about interfering and are attracting players over the other sides (e.g. Fornals).

07 Jul 2019 18:32:47
Point of interest. In the north west we don't have dead and dying ponies on our cobbled streetls in fact we have lots of filming such as peaky blinders, Cilla to name but a few. I would have thought London had far more air pollution than the north west. We have lots of fantastic restaurants we are not just pie and chips. Liverpool was capital of culture and last year staged the giants that attracted millions if people. we have cruise lines visiting the city. but of course would be a cultural bombshell to sign for any club up north! . that's what players must think when signing for lpool and man u and man city. jesus what about them cobbled streets! Players sign for money contracts and the hope of winning cups and medals. I find your reply disappointing and very stereotypical. Sad. Yes agree we have a crumbling stadium but that will be rectified in the coming years. but we have a passionate fan base and that counts more than a soulless stadium of which I could name a few. i always look out for your replies as you insight into dealings is second to none but I cannot and will not let you deride a club and and a region without reply. I find your response saddening.

{Ed002's Note - This is why you are a laughing stock I am afraid.}

07 Jul 2019 18:56:58
Of course you are always right 👍.

07 Jul 2019 19:15:42
Think ed2 may have been using humour.
Remember stan boardman, Jimmy starbuck etc?

07 Jul 2019 19:24:17
Sorry didn't realise ed02 was a comedian. my mistake. Leave it at that .

07 Jul 2019 22:30:17
Ed be careful or you will Ave big DUNCAN FERGUSON after you😂😂😂.

08 Jul 2019 06:13:23
Sdblue you don’t even have jellied eels in the north west so how can you suggest you have any food culture at all ;)

08 Jul 2019 06:41:51
😂. another positive for the north west.! . always look at the west ham site as both clubs always seem to be going for the same players! Anyways good luck to the hammers for the forthcoming season👍. NB. where has iron Mike gone on your site? Thought he had lots of good info. Cheers.

08 Jul 2019 19:08:46
Sdblue1, I don’t go for throwing derisory remarks to posters on our site, I think you were very restrained in being so polite in your responses, which is to be admired👍I personally wouldn’t have been inclined to make such a passive remark, so well done you👍Iron Mike no longer posts on here?

08 Jul 2019 20:27:23
Thanks. not my style to vent back in anger . I just wanted to paint a different picture to the one painted - didn't insult but was insulted back. that's life 😉. good luck for next season (obviously just behind Efc😉😂)

10 Jul 2019 09:03:48
I must say when i went to Livepool Stadium the area was like going back 60 years at Avestone road Manor park before it was knocked down Its blighted by boarded up 2up 2down old houses i'm sure the coucil know this as the area is due a big revamp as a lot of Liverpool has in the last few years. Their are some rearly nice areas and a few that needs revamping to say the least but London East was the same before the Docklands project happened. Livepooll stadium and Everton stadium will be taken down and rebuilt so let's not forget we too had an old woderful Stadium but it was time to move as i'm sure Everton has plans too.

04 Jul 2019 16:24:36
Just read that Arnie is on the verge of leaving for £36m, that will do for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2019 16:51:52
Would love it to be true, but sadly, I suspect, it’s more media nonsense.

04 Jul 2019 17:49:47
🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞👋👋👋👋👏👏👏👏👏please, please be true🤣😂🤣😂⚒⚒⚒⚒.

04 Jul 2019 18:32:12
I’ve got everything crossed chelms, him and his brother should just do one they are both as bad as each other. I’d sell him for 6m the twit. Anyone heard anything from iron mike at all?

04 Jul 2019 18:45:52
Getting a bit short on strikers and the new season is just over a month away. Best we stop. messing about and pull our fingers out.

04 Jul 2019 18:54:05
I think the rumours are very stron and true but not €36million.

04 Jul 2019 21:31:55
My undertaking is that it’s 25m euros. Which will cover what we paid for him and the sell on fee.
I’ll be glad to see the back of the sulky bitch and his brothers who’s a nobody without Arnie.

I still question West Ham’s common sense having a release fee of £40 that expired on 14 June.

Bye bye Arnie. I wish you the worst of luck and hope you get what you deserve in China. obscurity and money which is all you seem to play football for.

I really have no reservations about letting him go. He’s worse then Payet was.

04 Jul 2019 23:10:44
Wished we had taken the money in January. don't believe in keeping anyone against their will as destroys team unity etc. Good riddance. Maxi Gomez and Rondon with (cant believe I am saying this) Hugill as back up and will be happy.

04 Jul 2019 23:22:22
COYI64 Worse than payet and not half the player either.

05 Jul 2019 06:20:00
get rid of him he's more trouble than he's worth WH has treated him very well its know time to pull the pin. I hope he likes rice because in my eyes that's all he's worth and as for his rotton brother i hope his rice is full of weavels.

05 Jul 2019 18:46:58
Cant wait for him to go now. Maybe Ed's can shed some light on this but does a player miss out on a percentage if he hands in a transfer request?

{Ed002's Note - 5% of the full transfer fee. So something like €1.25M - but I have no doubt his brother (who is the real culprit here) would look to have Shanghai SIPG pay a signing on fee. Also the rules on non Chinese players are tough - a maximum of six can be signed in a season; a max of four at any one time and a maximum of three on the pitch at any one time. So they need to make space as they are maxed out so one needs to leave.}

05 Jul 2019 23:33:13
I can see it taking some time. As Ed has said the rules around foreign players means they have to clear space if it is SIPG so won’t happen in the next few days. If that’s the case they need to have him moved away from the rest of the squad and train back in London. Having watched the Chinese teams over the last few years I can’t wait to hear his whining when he finds out what he is signing up to playing with.

06 Jul 2019 00:15:09
I read something about the Chinese government having a 100% tax on player transfers too not sure how true that is.

So if he hands in the transfer request does that mean he misses out on 5%. I couldn't see him making an official request as was reported if that means he misses out but as you say no doubt there will be a silly signing on fee for him and hefty agent fee for himself. I couldn't believe the statement he came out with I don't think he believes it himself, purely just saying these ridiculous things to drive a wedge between the club and arnautovic. don't want to see his type at west ham anymore but the way things appear in football with all these greedy agents I don't see it happening.

06 Jul 2019 09:55:33
Gomez situation is exactly the same as the carlos bacca one we made the best offer gomez wants his cake and eat it . Move on irons don't waste time we need 2 strikers big time.

06 Jul 2019 10:32:53
I'm hoping we have learnt our lesson bonzo. Fornals transfer Came largely out of nowhere and was done very quickly after it seemed we missed other targets, I have a feeling the same will happen again if we miss out on Gomez the second nd 3rd choice are done quickly no messing about I'm confident we are ready to pull the trigger on those where it seemed with bacca there was no one else lined up and we chased him right up to the end of the window.

Trust in Pellegrini and husillos.

06 Jul 2019 11:57:35
Looking more like Arnie going for less than 25m and less likely Gomez is going to come in - probably all change tomorrow but hopefully Plan B and C will be ready to go.

06 Jul 2019 13:57:45
It’s a balancing act at the moment. IF the Austrian goes to China, money is added to our warchest to either complete the Gomez transfer, or move quickly elsewhere. I am sure MP/ H won’t panic into a buy just because time is moving on. As has already been said, we may end up with a strike force none of us had an inkling about.

Trust in the management.

04 Jul 2019 12:33:03
I have been a huge supporter of Arnautovic but even i agree that now is the time to sell. I honestly think WHU can do well if Gomez comes in, if he doesn't want to be part of that then let him go. I think £25M is about right.

Would anyone go for Tierney at Celtic? I just think LB is becoming a problem area for us.

For me, Fournals, Gomez + Tierney is a great transfer window. Then if we can get another striker in, not for the sake of it, but a good one, that would represent excellent business. I do also agree that we need to move a few on first. Onwards and upwards COYI.

Agree2 Disagree3

04 Jul 2019 14:53:58
if I was celtic owner i'd want more than 25m for Tierney so don't see us going near that.

04 Jul 2019 15:18:46
Gomez is having talks again with valencia for less money than we have offered so its clear he don't want to join us.

04 Jul 2019 23:27:38
Yes see rumour we are trying to hijack the deal but if he is satisfied with the money they are offering then not sure it will happen.

03 Jul 2019 21:53:17
What is the latest on Reece Oxford? He is a massive talent and maybe he's a had a bit of a wake up call. If he works hard he could be at the same level as Rice. Is he likely to stay and be given a second chance?

{Ed002's Note - He will leave - ideally he wants Augsburg but there is interest from the Championship as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2019 22:08:01
Thanks Ed! Shame to see him go but something clearly isn’t right.

04 Jul 2019 08:11:47
Hi Eds any news as to where we stand with all outgoings and incomings at the moment?

{Ed002's Note - Please read the posts.}

03 Jul 2019 12:55:41
Maxi Gomez wants to join West Ham but personal terms have yet to be agreed. Deal is “very complicated”. Valencia have also agreed a deal with Celta Vigo but are struggling to finance the move. it was sky kaveh. so most probs not true.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2019 15:56:22
Been trying to get into the mind of Arnie, and these strikers we are linked to are probably why he has done what he has. We were all busy worrying that a striker like Gomez would not come to us because they do not want to risk being second fiddle to Arnie. Didn't stop to remember that Arnie is an egocentric coward, and doesn't want to compete with anyone! LOL
He probably realises that he would inevitably lose the battle for a starting place to whichever better and younger striker we bring in. This would reduce his potential future salary in China, as they would pay less to a second string 32 year old, so he thought "best go now"! LOL.

03 Jul 2019 16:02:22
Arnie wants more money pure and simple,

03 Jul 2019 17:28:14
Good reasoning, Nick. There may well be something in that, unless it was MP’s intention to stick Arnie back out wide.

03 Jul 2019 23:20:31
William CARVALHIO wanted to come to west ham but we just WOULDN'T stump up the money SPORTING wanted so I expect the same with CELTA VIGO unfortunately. COYI.

03 Jul 2019 11:47:22
Sky just reported that Maxi Gomez wants to join West Ham?

Agree0 Disagree1

03 Jul 2019 12:26:24
So do I :)
The reporters will say anything to get another story, another twist etc. fact is he never has said he wants to play Champions League, he never has said he wants to stay in Spain, he never said anything about Spurs, it’s all just made up second and third hand gossip. Will believe he wants to sign with someone when he puts pen to paper.

03 Jul 2019 21:07:16
Sky news have a vested interest in incorrect transfer rumours, given that SkyBet is the pre-eminent transfer betting market.

Big pinch of salt with anything they put forward as a result of "Sky Sources"!
