Full backs would be ideal, a good solid center mid and another striker and we can really push for top 6.

Great to read Hernandez talking so positively about playing and scoring goals for us, then looking to capitalise on our winning streak against Fulham on Saturday👍⚒ I am quite happy or admit that I have been a massive anti Hernandez critic on here, previously, simply because of his previous lack of enthusiasm and lack of effort on the pitch, no matter what his past statistics on goal scoring said!

But now WOW, completely reversed my opinion now having been given the chance by MP to play from the start in the last few games and scoring some good goals! I don't feel guilty over my previous remarks as to me any player should commit 100% for the sake of the paying fans and for himself👍He says " He. now feels the same excitement putting the WH shirt on and playing as he feels playing for Mexico" 👍👍⚒⚒.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions Chelms, its great when a player performs well enough to change our minds! let's hope JW does the same, as we all know your thoughts on him. Snodds is a great example, as I am sure all of us wouldn't have complained had he left in the summer. I am sure there are better players out there, but he is a player we can all be proud to see wearing the shirt, much like Nobes. Proper professional.
Chica's career stats always warranted his salary, as he is a proven player who has CONSISTENTLY scored more goals at the top level than anyone we have ever had. I do not begrudge the salary he is on. The fact is he has not done it for us so far, which is why many feel this way about him. HOWEVER, Chica needs a certain style of football to flourish, and that has not been provided by our teams under Slav and Moyes. MP is changing that though, and i really hope that this new style and confidence provides the platform for Chica to really flourish and score lots of goals for us. His effort on the pitch has always been there.

{Ed001's Note - I am confused, how is a player who was, by his own admittance, too fat to play well for more than a year a proper professional? I get Noble is, to a degree anyway, but Snodgrass only has himself to blame for his poor form.}

Agree0 Disagree0

He was always that weight and played very well for other teams, those previous managers never required/ told him to loose the weight to perform better, so its a bit unfair to say he was un-professional, he was just never coached properly in order to get even MORE out of him. Turned out that the level he was at was not good enough for West Ham, and eventually a good manager came in (Pellegrini) and told him what he needed to do in order to improve, and he did it when he could have easily thrown his toys out of the pram and left (especially after the owners comments last year) . He is also great at the non-football stuff around the club. IMO that is a great attitude and a proper professional.

How did this go from Chicha to Snodgrass?

I, too have been very sceltical about Hernandez, who always seems to react sulkily if things don’t go his way. His turnaround in form is very welcome, though.

Let’s see if the Fulham game is hot or cold for him - if it’s the latter, I’m betting he will be caught offside consistently as he scowls and stares at the ground.

If it’s the former and he bangs in a couple, I’ll take it!

Interested to know what everyone HONESTLY expects us to do in the Jan window?

My thoughts:
MP's mentality will always mean progress, even if we are effectively safe by Jan as he will be targeting 6th. Ironmike will be better at explaining what finances we have, and where we are with FFP, but i suspect we have to move players on before we can make permanent signings and accommodate Rice's pay rise.
Realistically, I see him improving SQUAD quality in a couple positions, UNLESS MP has an opportunity on someone he specifically wants for his long term plan.
Left back is the main issue. Masuaku is not good enough defensively. Sell if an offer comes and expect a young, or temporary addition (e. g. Monreal) to come and challenge Cresswell.
Oxford looks like he is going, and with Zaba retiring at end of season, and Fredricks injured, expect a RB to be on the cards.
Cover for Declan. With Sanchez out for the season and Ogbonna our only backup at CB then a backup DM is important. Interesting that Yaya Toure has had his pay-as-you-play contract cancelled amidst the Turkish financial crisis. Maybe a temporary option until end of season when Sanchez returns? We may well see reports of him training with us before the new year as his family is in London.
Creative player cover. With Snodders and Anderson our only established technical players fit, i expect Nasri to come in to provide depth and cover here. I do not expect us to spend big on anyone else here as we have Yarmolenko and Lanzini still to come back, and 3 very good youngsters in Diangana, Holland and Silva coming through.
Up front, I only see movement here if we sell players. Arnie rumours may be true, although i am not sure which club will want him RIGHT NOW. Many clubs need a Caroll in Jan, and we could see him go on loan until his contract runs out freeing up some salary.
Out - Oxford, Masuaku, Antonio, Caroll
In - RB, LB, Nasri, DM and Rice TO SIGN!
If funds available, MAYBE bigger signing.

I would go along with that Nickinho. It's a long shot to expect 6th place with current squad, much will depend on what budget Pellegrini has to play with when the window opens. Yarmalenko, Wilshire and Lanzini is a big loss but players have stepped up that have come in. If I was to be critical on team performances it has to be the tendency to step off the gas in periods of the game, allowing the opposition to take control. Pellegrini's philosophy is, if the opposition hasn't got the ball they can't score, and I've noticed that in recent matches the possession stats have taken a dive, not drastically, but enough to tell you that the team is conceding too much possession. Better opposition in those last three games would have taken advantage.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Dec 2018 19:37:24
I would personally love us to try and sign Kieran Tierney I think he is fantastic, versatile and is a leader. Though I may be being unrealistically ambitious and he may have no interest in us.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Dec 2018 00:24:29
Nice post Nickinho I think you have covered all the main points here, IT WAS the idea originally to have another spendfest this coming summer however injuries, and poor performances by some players demand more urgent attention, we don’t have to sell anybody to buy a couple of players as close to 35 m can be available However WH will look to sell on and reduce wage bill or at least keep it under control. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2018 00:30:41
Not much point in loaning out Carroll he can help us when available I'f someone's that desperate to need him in January they can buy him.

He seems to come back play a few games then get injured but he always seems to make an impact, but yes I would sell we still have an option at the end of the season and we know if he can stay fit what an asset he can be. More likely a sale than a loan.

Well written post Nichinho.
I, too, think that Nasri might be our only recruit in January. Your points about our full backs make good sense, but my gut tells me that only Oxford will leave if we get a decent offer.
Our full squad, when all our fit, covers most bases and I am optimistic that we are on course for a top 10 finish.
The summer spending was so extensive that we won’t spend this window. I would really have liked Almiron to come in, but can’t see it happening realistically.
I’m sure that MP will not move Carroll on, as he’s good cover for Arnie, who l also think will stay at least until the summer - at which time there may be a major shake up in our strikers.
MP and Husillos will be constantly scouting for the players he wants in the summer to make the squad increasingly his.

Why is Anderson referred to as F. Anderson?

Who will he be confused with if he is simply Anderson?

{Ed033's Note - It depends what F. stands for :)

Brazilians have always been funny about the names on their shirts.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 20:22:50
They have a different naming convention to us. his birth name is actually fillipe Anderson pereira gomes. Ronaldinho for example birth name is Ronaldo de assis morreria. I believe it's something to do with having many family names from both your parents in your name. Am not sure though. But the players tend to use one of their given fornames or just make a new name up entirely as in some cases.

Hi fellas Round up. Things work out sometimes very strangely as PEREZ had just agreed a deal in principle to go to BETIS on loan until seasons end, that's now been cancelled, WHILST WH where trying to make end of season deal for MAXI GOMEZ Athletico have stepped in to sink that prospect, SALA has been told he can go to WH if they meet the players asking price of 22 m euros ON RICE privately Pellegrini is troubled he could lose the player and is trying to convince the boss to sort this out pronto, WH have not followed up on Heaton from Burnley, and ALMIRON looks present, y to be Newcastle NOT WH bound as we look to Nasri for a short term fix, NOT the way forward for me, we need to constantly upgrade not use polyfilla. IRONMIKE.

Thanks for that update Mike I. Really think Rice is the start of another group of youngsters coming through as they did 20 years ago Diangana has proved sometimes you just need to be given the chance really need to tie him down

Any update on the Arnie situation.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 12:05:19
ARNIE post new year probably around 10th jan. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 13:41:21
Thanks for Update Mike

Concerning Rice it just goes to show how DGS are so out of touch, they have no problem paying 50k plus for average players than have no commitment and warm the bench and probably looking for a move, but for a young player who plays regularly and is such a talent they are haggling over silly money, I just don't get what is going on in there brain, as said before even if they don't rate him on his asking wages you need to get him to sign to protect a transfer fee, I still can't believe they are that stupid and something else going on.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 15:41:07
It's hard to tell what's really going on with Rice and hard to imagine the club will let him slip away - looks like there is more to this than we know.
I would imagine that Nasri will be brought in as cover for Anderson - who can't play every game until the end of the season -Snodgrass and Wilshere (! )
Lanzini will be back in the Summer so an experienced player without a fee for cover for several players til the end of the season looks pretty sensible to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 20:38:12
Perhaps Rice is not wanting to discuss and is waiting to see who comes for him? Agents are rewarded based on contracts players get so why would it be so hard to believe he is getting advice to say the right things in public but not negotiate on a contract? Been done before. Otherwise you would have to believe DGS are completely stupid.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 22:08:00
It’s very possible. IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 12:11:21
Just shows we really should have pulled the trigger on Gomez when we had the chance. Rue missing that one he looks perfect for the prem.

Xande Silva and Holland both missing for the under23s last night, I hope it's not to soon for them after their hamstring injuries and they can take an opportunity if presented today. I hope they are %100 ready.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 08:13:56
Apparently MP is interested in Valencia at ManU to replace Zabaletta, another younger oldie to replace another oldie? Not quite sure about that but has been really decent in the past! Also has given Carroll a contract warning that he needs to play more often to win a new contract, well hopefully that's dead in the water! Pity he didn't think to say that to Wilshere before he signed him!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

07 Dec 2018 10:29:00
I see that about Valencia as well Chelmsford, I don't know how long Fredericks is out for but once fit we need to give him a few minutes on the pitch to get him up to speed and give him confidence, I also see Nasri is set to sign on wages believed to be £80-£100k a week, what must Rice be thinking, I would rather get in a couple of loans in January and concentrate on Rice's contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 13:23:48
The paramount thing that WH should do is get Rice on a new contract NOW. paying above average wages to has beens does not give a good impression to Rice, he must wonder what is going on around him. If we lose Rice it would be devastating to the supporters.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 14:08:55
Hammer man, it wouldn't just be devastating, I think there would be a bloody riot, you will get banners at home games saying BOARD OUT, and we don't really want all that to start up again, let's hope it is all being sorted out behind the scenes?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 18:11:52
So what can the problem be by not getting Rice on a long term contract. Its about time we were told the truth, or is it just our board being stubborn. It can't be that the club can't afford it as we are paying squad players drastically over the odds.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 20:40:32
As I said above, and playing devils advocate above, maybe it’s his agent and Rice who don’t want to negotiate yet?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 17:48:15
Roma want Arnie and want to give us Dzeko as part of the deal?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 Dec 2018 18:29:09
Spurs have made a spectacular bid for cengiz under of Roma, so they may take it, which MIGHT see them bid for Arnie, IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 21:41:00
We should have gone in early to try get him when his was at basaksehir looked good cheap player something we needed at the time.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 21:54:27
Isn't Arnie 'injured now?

{Ed002's Note - Their interest relates to being a replacement for Dzeko not Under.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 12:35:43
Arnie for Dzeko and cash and then use the remaining cash for Barboza and Clyne! Sort out RICE contract issue and let hernandez go to Besiktas and AC to Galatasaray.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 14:19:07
Could be the way to go Phil, we don't know if Arnies injury is going to be an on going injury, his not getting any younger, hate to say it but could it be time to cash in?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2018 19:11:50
With all due respect if Arnie goes to Roma, Hernandez to Besiktas and Carroll to Galatasaray where do hou expect the goals to come from fkr the rest of the season .?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 16:45:56
There's a report saying we're interested in Bradley Dack?

Stevie, must confess I had never heard of him, so looked up on Google, seems Palace are interested as well, reported £20m⚒⚒.

04 Dec 2018 07:51:41
Looks fairly definitive that we are going to give Nasri a 6. month contract starting from when his ban ends on 1 January 2019. MP is making to many positive remarks about him for the decision not to have been already made! I wasn’t keen when I first heard our interest, but I am beginning to really warm to the idea now of playing with us👍 I remember him as being a really feisty player which I must confess I really like, you definitely need some steel and creativity which he certainly had in his early career, in your team to win things IMO and it also shows passion that can rub off onto other players⚒⚒.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Dec 2018 17:11:01
If he's still got it and wants to prove something, yes let's have him - if he's just looking for a final pay day, then no.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Dec 2018 18:22:54
Guyser, yeh agreed, just a pity we can’t make him take a “lie detector” test🤣🤣⚒⚒⚒.

29 Nov 2018 12:17:46
I've been reading that we are interested in signing Victor Moses, could be useful?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

30 Nov 2018 07:51:13
Stevie, agree definitely mate, said a few weeks ago when I saw Moses May go in the January window through lack of playing time, that I would like us to go for him👍Was with us previously, no injury problems to my knowledge, seasoned Premiership player and International, must be worth going for providing fee or loan situation suitable to both parties! He would hit the ground running hopefully! Can’t keep playing Antonio unfortunately, deteriorated terribly, likewise Hernandez,
Saturday at Newcastle is a vital game for both teams, time maybe for Carroll to play 30 minutes or so if available, can’t afford to let the Maggies take 3 points, as they will climb away from us, would settle for a point before the game, at least it would keep us together, but a win would be a super result👍COYI⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2018 09:50:49
WH fall asleep on Almiron as Newcastle takr up the running, / . Man United are we interested. Phil Jones? WH not sure re Cahill , as the player looks to Villa,
