Hello Eds,

Do you know of any interest of Liverpool’s in Issa Diop? I figure he d be better off playing regularly for WHU rather than being 3rd choice for LFC.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure that Liverpool has never shown any interest in Issa Diop.}

Thank you Ed, have a nice day.

Thank you Ed, any idea of interest in Arnautovic at all? Seems to have gone very quiet (understandably) on that front.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any.}

Bugge4 - so will not play to best of his ability and cannot flog him. Great news. Thanks for the info ED :-)

I think we are loosing quite a bit players this summer and we should be smart in replacing them and getting better, look to replace Rice with an Emre Can or Amadou Diawarra, bring in a forward like Hirving Lozano or Moussa Dembelle, and improve our midfield.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Apr 2019 23:43:04
Not sure we should be replacing Rice, I think we should be retaining him for at least another season. Players that we need to replace are at least two decent strikers, still another defensive midfielder, a left back, another right back if we can, and maybe another centre back. Lanzini will be better for a pre-season, Yarmolenko will be back. Strikers and defence are the big issue.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2019 10:41:53
Yeah, agree. Rice needs to be playing regular club football and we can give him that opportunity. Wait until he is 22/ 23 and then move on if we have not improved by then.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2019 10:25:57
Do you honestly think that we are only in need of improving up front and in defence?

I don't disagree that both are lacking, but we have so few options in central midfield.

Rice is doing very well, but we have very little in the way of competition. we cannot rely on Wilshere being fit and obiang has either been ok or poor this season. Carols Sanchez is on the verge of returning to the squad, but he isn't a world beater.

Sell

CB - Reid
LB - Masuaku
RB - Byram
CM - Obiang
W - Snodgrass
F - Perez
F - Hernandez
F - Arnautovic

Release

GK - Adrian - expiring contract
RB - Zabaleta - expiring contract
F - Carroll - expiring contract

If money is tight this coming transfer window, there are a few decent options to sign on a free. (and I am not saying sign them all)

CB - Gary Cahill
RB - Rafael - premiership experience, still only 28
CM - Hector Herrera - VERY unlikely signing I know, but still
W - Yacine Brahimi
W - Andreas Pereira - Man U prospect
F - Danny Welbeck
F - Daniel Sturridge
F - Mario Balotelli - hothead, but still a good option

Buy

CB - Guillermo Maripan from Alaves
LB - Kieran Tierney from Celtic
CM - Stanislav Lobotka from Celta Vigo
CM - Aaron Mooy from Huddersfield
F - Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo
F - Aleksandr Mitrovic from Fulham.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2019 12:54:50
Why sell Masuaku?
Agree with the rest though.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2019 23:13:06
I did say another defensive midfielder but the attack and defence are the biggest issues.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2019 08:01:40
I am saying to sell Masuaku because he is extremely inconsistent. He either plays well or poorly.

I think he is more of a winger than a left back if the truth be told and frankly there are better wingers in the squad already, and signing Pereira and / or Brahimi would only push him further down the pecking order higher up the field.

Cresswell is currently our best left back in my opinion and signing Kieran Tierney as competition would give us ample defensively.

We simply wouldn't need Masuaku.

Sky Sports saying we've been offered Dzeko.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

16 Apr 2019 21:12:19
Utter madness if we do go for him. Roma want far too much for him, (£20M according to some reports) he'll want silly wages (£165k a week's been banded about fcol!? ) and at 33 what value is there in signing him?

He'd only ever be a short term fix at best and we'd have to finish something like 2nd as opposed to our usual 11-15th in the league and win a cup just to cover in prize money what we'd have spent on him - and with the best will in the world Edin Dzeko alone just ain't going to make that happen!

Surely it makes much more sense to sign a younger player who will still have value in 3,4 or 5 years time?

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Apr 2019 23:16:30
Well said Billy, hopefully no more sticking plasters.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 06:53:21
Agree entirely with Dzeko comment, these agent / players are such greedy b———-s, all trying to get on the The Premiership gravy train👎 I would say yes for £2m and £25k a week or on yer bike, I wish MP would get these prospective pensioners off his radar, he seems to love some of the ones that played under him years ago! We all know the Premiership is a very tough competitive demanding league, it needs players with stamina and pace in all positions to compete, he as a Manager looking at WH hospital beds should see only to well what a waste of time signing has beens or those with historic injury problems!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 18:11:41
I have no problem with Dzeko, if he’s FREE and requires no more than £100k per week. He’s rarely injured, guarantees goals and his wage would be funded from Carroll leaving, therefore I think it’s a goer.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 18:35:09
Mark, the only problems are, he wants £165k, plus obviously he’s now 33 and the Premiership is tougher from when he was playing in it!

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 18:39:51
Dzeko now decided he wants to stay where he is, think he wants an easy life in Italy rather than the tough spotlight of the Premiership, so just as well we didn’t sign another player that wants an easy life on huge wages!

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 22:40:06
What about a straight swop Chico for Shelvey.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2019 10:52:23
Surely we need to aim higher than Shelvy? Ok player. but is he someone that will change out team massively? I'm not too sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2019 08:19:47
See we’ve upped our bid apparently for Medel to £7.7m, am I the only one that is thinking Husillos and MP are far to blinkered in their recruitment policy, Medel approaching 33, Chilean! That’s not cheap for me, experienced yes, but for the bloody Premiership, how many more £7/ 8m’s are we going to throw away on players that are simply not good enough for the Premiership and are short term patch up jobs that will end up on the treatment table picking up their £70k weekly!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2019 19:35:23
Exactly. When you spend those 7 mil plus wages on these players who will never really play . adds up.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 12:10:31
Has anyone else seen us linked with Perisic, thought he was the wrong side of 30, do we need older players?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of Perisic but Benito Raman (LW/F) - WHU have watched Raman on a couple of occasions.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Apr 2019 13:04:48
Thanks for that Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 18:23:55
Sorry lads but i do think we should stick to buying younger plaers. Look at the players we are stuck with over 30 No resale value at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 23:19:40
Is Raman any good? See he plays for Leverkusen but have no idea about German league.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 21:08:46
is he any good ED heard the name but have no idea if he is any good or not.

{Ed002's Note - There is already interest from several sides and that will grow as we get closer to the end of the season. He plays for Fortuna Dusseldorf and is a well respected LW who can play as a more central forward and on the right. He is very well liked.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 16:05:14
I see you lot are having a fantastic season after spending millions in the summer, a few more wins and you could be pushing 10th place 😁.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Apr 2019 20:51:29
The women’s team have given us something to look forward to at least.
Another season resigned to believing we should be doing better. At least there were a few decent performances thrown in there I suppose.
Can’t be spending much more I reckon and that’s probably a good thing given our recruitment history.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 07:42:33
Bucky, think you are a bit harsh on our Saturday performance, it was the best we have played since I can remember imo! We played with great energy and cannot fault anybody for lack of effort, Masuaku who has taken some real stick had a great game, no he can’t defend but he can fly down the flank with some decent crosses, so that’s his position for me in every game! can only say, it is Pellegrini’s first season, you have to get to know the team you have inherited, then assess what you have. I agree he made some awful signings imo but also some really good ones. Several were signed in desperation just to make up the squad numbers which I can understand! Sorry but can’t get enthusiastic about Women’s football, would rather cut my garden grass🤣 We need to recruit younger fitter signings, the oldies are knackered and can take longer to recover from knocks, yes they will cost more but we need a team than can sustain Premiership status and even more!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 10:07:06
Let’s hope we take points of off your lot meaning u miss out on champions league.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 11:05:17
Don’t worry we will it’s what we do! Anyone for lasagne :)

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 18:11:04
Oh don’t get me wrong Chelmsford. Saturday was one of the positive performances I was speaking of. Whilst the result was not positive I believe that performance is more of what it is to be a West Ham. A very good effort after weeks of failing to achieve those standards against teams around us. Then failing to pull it off due in part to luck not being on our side. It’s classic West Ham and I loved it.

Masuaku I like and hope he finds his from from the first season under Bilic when he seemed to play so free and with more confidence. It’s up to the manager to get him performing again.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 23:21:48
quietly happy that people are starting to see the positive with Masuaku :-)

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 08:11:29
I've seen that Real Madrid are talking to Rice and his family over a move to Spain, all I can say is because of his young age and length of contract he's only going to get better and better so IF he goes anywhere then the price should be in the 100s of millions?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Apr 2019 10:20:07
Anything is possible Stevie, but I'm not sure the source is credible, one for the Ed's opinion I'd say.

{Ed002's Note - He is represented by his family and I don't know if they have approached them or not. They cannot speak directly to the player and if they have West Ham can make a formal complaint to UEFA. Sides have taken a look as he is having a very good season. The sides include Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Spurs - and Real Madrid were present at the Chelsea game, and they may well be looking to an offer, certainly if Casemiro were to leave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 12:44:09
Thank you ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 15:07:01
How could he refuse if the offer is credible? Good luck to him, Madrid seems rather more attractive than Stratford😂🤣 he maybe able to ask for family arrangements etc as he seems a very family orientated man and May insist on that if they want him enough they will accommodate his wishes, we just need to make sure we capitalise on the fee obviously!

{Ed002's Note - I think West Ham should do what they can to hold on to him longer - perhaps explaining that he would likely not be a starter at RM or MU.}

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 15:26:50
Ed002, At that age in in a different climate with life seeming like one long holiday, earning a fortune, phew that might hard to refuse depending on your personality and dedication!

{Ed002's Note - If he is bright enough he will understand (at least I hope he would).}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 15:41:15
Agree ed, at any huge team he could be a project and not an automatic pick, if he wants first team football then I hope he stays put.

{Ed002's Note - I hope so to. It will be good for both the club and the player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 17:52:44
Another season or 2 with us would probably be best, if he continues at this rate man u and real are the only 2 teams that could afford him out of the ones you mentioned. He was superb yesterday, countless brilliant tackles always intelligent in his play, he keeps getting better in a attacking sense too. Would love him to do a Billy Bonds but the lure of competing for the champions league with real is more than understandable.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 03:09:00
Too many next big things have gone to Real Madrid and ended up never playing. If he is good enough he will get offers later, right now he needs to be playing and only likely place that will happen every week next season is West Ham. After that unless we push top 6 I fear he will be off.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 10:15:57
Iron. Al - don't forget we bought Billy Bonds from Charlton (he played 95 times for them) - he didn't come through our youth system.

All footballers think they will be or should be starters. You don't get to where Rice is now without tremendous self-belief and he will believe he will get game time at a big club of they pay a fortune for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 12:09:37
Yes Bonds only got the captains armband because Lampard was looking for a transfer.

I've seen a lot of reports stating that we've agreed a deal with Dzeko?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

06 Apr 2019 20:14:15
I’ve read those, too.

He has been and still is (just about) a quality front man, but Roma’s valuation for a player of his age is ridiculous.

MP knows him as well as any, so bringing him on board makes sense - at a sensible price.

Agree2 Disagree1

07 Apr 2019 02:44:47
To old . Too pricy.

Agree3 Disagree0

07 Apr 2019 20:23:17
Apparently according to Media, MP. willing to offer Dzeko £160k a week! Offload some of the overpaid players either not playing or doing F. A. I don’t think it would be a bad deal, depending on contract length?

{Ed002's Note - The coach does not decide the wages that will be paid.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2019 21:23:36
Ed002, just quoting in the Media it states “ Pellegrini is prepared to pay him £160k a week”.

{Ed002's Note - It is not how it works I am afraid.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 10:38:27
Yeah, reckon our owners will balk at that price.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 10:52:38
That would smash our wage structure and have others clamouring for more. Sully won’t do it.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 10:18:52
Would it be fair to say that Birmingham blaming Redknapp and Zola for playing a massive part in their current situation is a little out of line?
Managers ask for players and what not but ultimately the signing and final terms any players are offered are down to the owner/ chairman.

{Ed002's Note - They are scratching around for excuses. It is rarely the owner or chairman who get involved closely in transfers, and not the case at Birmingham - although it is at West Ham and the primary reason the club has been held back in recent years.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 13:49:37
We are such a strange club. Even our own fans are weird these days. Don’t know what we want and currently no idea as to how to progress at all.

Until the miracle happens and we become a stable club we should be happy with the odd win over the top 5. I miss getting a result against Chelsea one week then losing to cheltenham a week later and the world not ending over it.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 14:25:53
Ed, will it be Husillos acting on behalf of west ham now?

Was he the man behind last window?

{Ed002's Note - One of the owners still has far too much involvement with the transfers at West Ham United, but I have zero confidence that Mario Husillos can fix anything at all - it was a hopeless appointment as I said at the time.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 14:43:51
To be fair, I miss those days too.
Am pragmatic enough to realise that we are mid table at best.
Our signings and the amount spent on them has been a little strange though - I see clubs buying smart and learning, yet we only ever seem to make the same mistake.
Either old/ payday players or temperamental players who will leave the moment things go against them.
I would much rather the club go back to its roots and develop youth for a fraction of the cost and get some sort of business model going. If we ever want to compete with Chelsea (41 youngsters loaned out) or Man City (28 players loaned out)
I know that Fifa wants to stop this but cannot see them beating the combined might of some of Europe's top clubs and think this is what we *must* do.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 18:38:08
I agree but it’s out of our hands. So why worry?
Just hope for a time in which the players try for an extended period and play entertaining football. Regardles of how they came to play for us and for how much etc.

Hope used to be important in football. Now the overriding feeling is despair with the majority of fans. It’s a shame.

Agree0 Disagree0

Spuds are reported to be willing to sell Trippier, he'd sort our right side out.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

I can’t see any deals between the clubs. Too much bad blood.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Apr 2019 14:24:31
There was a lot of talk about Trippier joining us a few years back before he became a regular first team spud I seem to remember he being seen in a few hostelleries with a few of our lads.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 10:04:31
Trippier would be a great addition for us, but yes unfortunately with the hostile feeling between the clubs that won’t happen! I am obviously not privy to all the reasons for the bad blood between us, apart from being rival capital clubs, but am aware that Levy tried to block us from getting the London Stadium but so did others at the time!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 10:54:49
There are many reasons Jermaine to the animosity. 😏.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 14:46:17
Yeah, Levy hates us for some reason. The Adebayor stuff probably didn't help either.

{Ed002's Note - Spurs tend to over value sales which make them very difficult to deal with. But WHU maintain a serious interest in Mahlon Romeo and I expect they will follow it up.}

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 15:28:44
