It seems we are after rakitic in the summer him and bilic have a great realationship and back in 2015 rakitic said he would love westham to win the premier league and if bilic can talk to him we might get our big signing after all. we also looked at Brazilian Cafu the other night and it is true that bilic would love to sign modric.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2017 13:52:04
Cafu has NOT been watched since the late bid was turned away recently, Rakatic there is absolutely NO chance UNLESS he's asking price is HALVED, BUT wishful thinking IS GOOD, regards IRONMIKE.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Feb 2017 17:43:44
martinez scores against prem opposition, ableit average opposition.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2017 00:44:24
Modric would be amazing signing and you never know with rakitic if we were willing to spend upto 40 mill for a striker why not on him.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2017 09:15:13
We aren't a big enough club to be signing players like that, stick to solid prem players that can improve us not stupud fantasy signings that will never happen like last summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2017 23:12:34
We are a big club and there's no harm in trying for these players wether it happens or not, we got this big stadium to attract players to come London if we don't believe in our club we might aswell say sod it were just going to finish in 10th or below every season and sign these players that can't do it for other clubs. I want to see the ambition and for us to push on and be a bigger club than Tottenham and arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2017 13:51:40
Hi fellas, I. Understand that WH have made enquiry of BAYERN, would they like to play us in a pre season friendly WHAT! Time to visit a shrink DGS go into a dark room with, a cold compress to the head. Could you imagine what they might do to us, IF they can destroy Arsenal like that and take any pre season confidence away from us Stick to original thoughts. Maybe celta Vigo, or Palermo they will be tough enough believe me, IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Feb 2017 16:45:29
Didn't we play Juventus in a friendly at the beginning of the season? So why would asking Bayern be such a embarrassing move? It's a friendly after all.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2017 18:40:24
Like all clubs Bayern play clubs of varying levels of quality in preseason, they even play local 4th or 5th division clubs from Bavaria.
So why shouldn't a game against a Premier League club like us appeal to them?

They may say No of course, but if you don't ask.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Feb 2017 11:48:14
iv read that we have watched Fabio Sturgeon a few times, and Roderick Miranda could be worth a shout. and thanks eds for the European football link really helpful lots of great info have a good day all.

15 Feb 2017 20:54:02
Read a news reports saying we had scouts at benfica vs dortmund. Anyone shed some light on who we might be looking at wouldn't mind there rb semedo.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Feb 2017 20:59:35
Would love to get semedo. i'd also like zirkovic grimaldo and rafa but I need to stop dreaming.

{Ed002's Note - Semedo won't be moving to West Ham. Scouts go to games all of the time.}

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 22:30:36
And like my dreams.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Feb 2017 15:20:19
hi fellas, whilst the news is all about. Marcus Rashford, and the long list of clubs that are interested in signing him, should he fall out with Man united, WH are showing interest in another striker who MAY want away through lack of game time, and he doesn't live far away either, he's LUCAS PEREZ at arsenal, apparently Mr D Canio, who is consistently putting his fingers in every pie he can, is trying to persuade him to go to WH, in the same way he tried and failed with Matt Ritchie, awhile back, At that time WH didn't want to pay the sum asked for Ritchie so that went by the way, it's just something I thought I would mention, apparently and officially of course Wh know nothing about it, let's see if the player actually wants out from Arsenal IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Feb 2017 18:29:43
And how far short of the valuation would our board offer? Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2017 20:36:09
Apparently current value 14.45m what would we offer? 9m? Or sensible offer?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 07:59:29
Lets be honest, IF Arsenal are willing to let him leave and they wanted approx. £15m we'd probably offer £6m and we all know it.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 11:33:53
I'm hoping there isn't going to be buyers for LANZINI in the summer as I think he could play for a champions league team and as for rashford united won't part with him unless he asks for a move.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 11:54:54
It will be interesting to see what happens come the summer, who can we bring in, who can we keep, who will want to go . Let's just hope we can do some early business and be professional .

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 13:57:58
Professional? Not sure G&S know what that means but one can only hope.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Feb 2017 14:29:34
Hi fellas, ON Bacary Sagna he's more likely to go back to France with Marseille, and Everton have already made an offer to him, Zableta of those two more likely, But nothing done at present, IRONMIKE.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

12 Feb 2017 17:56:27
I'm some what annoyed regarding sakho and his injuries. before the window closed a few reports came out saying sakho will be back soon. From the physio room website he was due to return mid March, now it says beginning of april, I didn't know "soon" means over 2 months away.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Feb 2017 19:15:51
I'm not sure why the club give updates, he will ( so long as fit ) leave come the summer, unless ed or iron Mike know otherwise .

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 14:21:40
The problem with sakho now IS who is going to want him on a permanent with his injury prone record? It's not even IF we are going to try to sell him or not if you follow my drift IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 15:40:57
Difficult one Mike.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 22:31:25
I'd like to see us sign Iheanacho, Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah. They hardly get a game at their current clubs and are so full of potential and we could offer them regular football and that's got to be what they all want rather than bit parts. I don't know how realistic these signings would be but would love to see is invest in some quality young players to build our team around.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

10 Feb 2017 15:31:12
HI fellas, WH and arsenal watching Maccabi. GK Pred Raijkovic IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

10 Feb 2017 19:51:01
Very promising young keeper. Would be a decent addition to the squad.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Feb 2017 13:23:03
Hi fellas, Liverpool contacted WH yesterday re Sturridge, they want a concrete proposal, and to do a deal on him prior to the next window IF WH want to do it, apparently WH are also interested in another Liverpool player trying to find out who this is, Lkverpool are trying to put together apre season deal on Aubemeyang and getting together sufficient funds to do so IRONMIKE.

{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you again Mike.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Feb 2017 14:12:13
Sorry my old friend the call happened yesterday, I don't know anything else on this matter Regards Mike.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 17:04:31
I know sturridge is a difficult one as he is not 100% fit, but my question is even a 90% fit sturridge a 100% better than what we have ( AC excluded )?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 17:51:40
Sturridge scores goals in PL if he's fit for half a season he'd still be our top scorer.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 17:52:43
no, i'm not a fan of sturridge in the slightest.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Feb 2017 20:19:26
A FIT Sturridge would do very well at WH BUT with his injury record who knows, on balance If it were me I would look elsewhere, Especially for the type of money Liverpool would demand IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 20:50:23
I don't think Sturridge is hungry enough anymore. would he really put in the shifts or just collect the money every week.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 23:25:37
In a way I cast my mind back ( an old mind ) to Ian wright . Couple of goals, injury, big wage bill and a tv programme he never missed . Maybe I'm just being negative?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 05:10:21
Whats type of person is sturridge? Does he work hard for the team? Run after nothing balls to apply pressure? defends when the team is under the pump? Can he hold up play? I only have eyes for west ham, so I haven't seen enough of him. We know he can finish but if he's not working both ways, I'd rather look elsewhere. Plus we already have 2 strikers with bad injury records, getting a third isn't that smart.

{Ed001's Note - he does track back well though it is never highlighted on MOTD etc. He will often chase back to cover an out of position player and end up in the full back areas to help out. As for him as a person, he is one of the most dedicated pros I know of. He does not drink or smoke or sniff coke. He applies himself in training and spends a lot of time helping out younger players in the squad at Liverpool.
He probably needs another full season at least to get anywhere near his best. It took Falcao three years for instance. There are many other examples that took a similar timeframe to recover. However he has a fantastic attitude and I for one would wish him well anywhere he went, as he has been exemplary at Liverpool.}

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 07:41:01
I think he would do very well for us, and I would welcome him to the club, AC needs a quick man along side to pick the second ball he gets us but it often a bit to isolated.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 07:55:59
I think I'd rather have Javier Hernández if he is available.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 08:30:03
Thanks for some insight Ed. If he's the type of person you described, I'd love him at west ham.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 08:32:21
Even Carragher says unless Sturridge scores he brings nothing else to the team! . and he doesn't score enough for the team to carry the fella! . I hope he's not our main target striker wise as it's proven that he's not on the pitch often enough and we can't risk having 2 Strikers that can and will break down over a season . and it's not if it's how long for!

we need to be looking at younger fitter and hungrier Strikers looking to make a name for themselves!

We're never going to attract players like Lacazette or of similar ilk unless we have champions league football to start! . we are where we are one week good the next week bad until we have the financial clout that the man city, chelsea etc have and can go out and buy 6 or 7 £30+mill players and upgrade the quality all over the first team!

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 10:01:56
just seems to hold the ball too long an pass back when he could go forward I'd rather have welbeck I recon hard topic though. would love us to find a young version of Suarez just an animal on the pitch strong hungry for goals.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 11:24:07
Chicharito, Braithwaite, Toivonnen, Sagna?

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Feb 2017 10:45:42
Really great insight Ed1, and after that article a while ago about certain players professionalism (can't remember which ex-pro said it) that is very refreshing. Not sure how professional AC is these days, I am hoping that he's seen the light and keeping himself in shape for the end of his career.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Feb 2017 11:47:31
Another name to throw into the mix, Jamie Vardy, he would do well getting onto Carrolls knock downs, weather he's available in the summer is another matter, Sullivan did say he would like to try and sign English players, and I seem to recall he made a bid for him in the summer.

Agree0 Disagree2

10 Feb 2017 12:10:33
I make ed 100% right the only thing against sagna is his injury problems which I know is staying the obvious but as for dedication that's not in question for me so if the money's right for me it's a no brainier and is it true ed we are in talks to sign wanna from city.

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Feb 2017 13:16:35
I think he would be great for us, he's a top class striker who is far better than what we have. The injuries would be a concern but I don't think he's been injured much this year, he just needs someone to believe in him. I do have a concern of his decision making, he can be a little greedy but what top goalscorer over the years hasn't had a bit of that, on top of that he must be desperate to impress and bag goals every time he puts a Liverpool shirt on at the moment because he knows if he don't he'll be out the team again.

Agree3 Disagree2

13 Feb 2017 16:39:06
I meant sturridge regarding Ed's comments not sagna sorry people.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2017 17:28:35
hi fellas, this is an odd BUT true situation WH are looking to give wolves a 4m profit on their recent record purchase of Helda Costa the Portuguese winger, wolves are obviously reluctant to sell but 20m might change their minds, WH apparently were trying to nab him prior to wolves excercising their option on the player, IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

06 Feb 2017 21:01:29
Mike, Helda Costa has got all the tools to be a future star and Dries Mertens is a class little player already and at 29 he's in he's prime. Both these players would go straight in our team and I believe would be stars in the premier League and take us to the next level pushing for a regular place in Europe each season as Southampton has done the last few years.

Although we do need to sort our full backs out as well especially right back. My question is are Napoli going to except 35m euros for one of there star players? Is he going to want to come to West Ham with no European football. Apparently Everton pushed for him in January and they got a big fat NO and Napoli are currently trying to negotiate a new deal with him.

Helda Costa is another one I would love at our club but after laying out 16m which shows a big commitment from Wolves are they going to want to cash in for 4m? Same as Sigurdsson, I think we could have missed the boat there.

he's in a purple patch at the moment, Swansea are going to want big money and there is no doubt going to be a cue of clubs who could possibly offer European football/ more wages that are going to be after him.

Also now hearing that Lacazette wants to move on in the summer and Lyon want up to 50m for him. If Arsenal are interested which we all think is the case is he going to want to come to us or them?

don't get me wrong i'd love all these players at our club but i don't think we are that club to compete with the big boys yet in that regard. I hope its not another summer again where we are going after all these big names for a couple of months only to be let down and have to hurry about at the end of the window to get some realistic targets in.

I think its time for the scouting/ recruitment team to earn a pound note and unearth the next Helda Costa or the next Kante. players like Braithwaite and Arias will be available for about 10m and these sort of players will no doubt improve our squad and take us up a level to 7/ 8th.

More importantly unable us to consistently finish in those positions. Maybe in the not to distant future who knows, we can spend 100-150m and get some serious talent in and push into the top 6 but at the moment I think were a million miles away.

Small realistic steps to improve the first team and the squad, to get good competition for each position, bring through some of the talented boys we've got in the youth system such as the two Reece's, Cullen, Samuelsson, Quina and Martinez and aim to regularly make that eighth spot ours and push Everton for seventh.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 03:03:34
YES points taken, basically It just depends how much we can spend, the answer will make itself known soon enough, IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 07:46:23
Hi Mike,

Have you heard any new rumours about possible takeovers or new investment in the club? We desperately need someone to put their money where their mouth is or we will be facing relegation battles for ever more! The OS was supposed to give us the financial clout and pull to compete at the top table. This will not happen with our present owners in my humble opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 12:01:06
Nothing new, there are many interested parties, but those who thought they may come along and take over for a song, are now looking at different sums altogether as to their original appraisals, IRONMIKE.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 12:35:53
Thanks Mike,
your info is appreciated as always! Do you know if the Dave's and Karen would sell us now for the right offer?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 12:25:22
What's the latest club valuation Mike? Also, what percentage of season Ticket renewals do they think they will get?

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 07:52:09
Certainly not £600m that was touted recently.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 12:50:14
Costa has a 25million release clause in his contract so we'd have to bid big money to get him not so sure myself, very impressed with Snodgrass against saints but would rather judge him after half a season not one game hope I'm wrong, it looks like we are going to have a summer like BACCA with LACAZETTE trying to buy a player that just doesn't want to come to play for us so please let's look elsewhere.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 16:02:31
Absolutely right. Why waste our time on strikers that only want to play for big clubs such as Barcelona and PSG.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 16:02:33
Hot air from the board already? Hope not : ( aim for players that we can get!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 16:24:46
Here we go again.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 16:40:19
Haha and its not even the end of the season yet :) think I will just worry about saturdays game :)

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2017 11:29:37
Hi fellas, Lacazette has said he is ready to leave Lyon in summer and Bacca also said he wants to leave Milan, could be some interesting speculation come the summer. personally I think Lacazette might go to Arsenal, but anyone got any thoughts on this?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Feb 2017 13:30:16
They will won't champions league footy, I wouldn't waste time. Go get a striker that will be interested in coming us like Braithwaite.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2017 20:43:47
Lacazette has stated he prefers move to Spain and I for one think he's good enough to play for one of the top three in Spain, we should move on and pursue other targets which are realistic.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 11:08:47
Agree with IRONTODD. let's get a player who wants to come to us and can be played in numerous positions like Braithwaite (who we should have got last year but we messed Toulose about) . Get in and offer the £10m they want cause he is a hard working beast.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 11:40:18
Imagine how many players we could get for £70m?

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 23:53:15
70m? i'm up for playing that game Phil. First of all i'd try to recoup upto 40m from this little lot to bring that up to 110m.

Sakho
Valencia
Feghouli
Nordtveit
Collins
Masuaku
Adrian

With that 110m i'd like to buy this little lot-

Braithwaite
Guffi Sigurdsson
Helda Costa
Youri Tielemans
Santiago Arias
Jetro Willems
Asmir Begovic

Something like that anyway lol.

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Feb 2017 13:11:29
Is £70m what Lyon want for Lacazette? As you say Woz7, if we could offload some, we could raise extra funds.

I'd definitely get rid of:

Sakho
Valencia
Feghouli
Nordtveit
Collins
Masuaku
Adrian

And I agree with your list (of course Braithwaite would be there pmsl), But I reckon Batshuyai could do a good job also. RB goes without saying but watch this space.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2017 17:36:59
Agree with all the sales but would include Noble and buy

Joe Hart
Nathan Ake
Daley Blind
Adama Traore
Troy Deeney
Gylfi Siggurdson
Batashuya.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2017 22:28:18
Phil why would you want to get rid of masuaku? He's a good player he can play right back as well. When he's fit if he gets the chance he will prove it, people probably said get rid of obiang in the summer and look what he has done this year. Coyi!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 16:03:35
Hi fellas, apparently WH watched dres martens again today, must be a dozen times at least, the cottee sized forward on fire hat trick performer as Napoli got seven at Bologna, WH are trying to convince Napoli to take 35 m euros, this could be a runner IRONMIKE.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

05 Feb 2017 17:18:10
Wow that would be a great call. I was thinkibg about SB and Mancini and watching the Leicester situation and I reckon Mancini could well replace ranieri.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 17:29:10
WH could not afford a team of stars in the foreseeable future Phil, BUT a couple of acquisitions like Martin and Sigurdson, and a couple more with premiership experience could get us into the top eight, it's a question, not only of money BUT CAREFUL picking we have a few to ditch already, so care has to be the watch word, IRONMIKE.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 18:11:56
Absolutely and I'd really like to see us do something about right back.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2017 09:51:46
sigurssons playing really well but his price is going to soar up. i was at the game on sat was pretty good fonte played well, obiang was fantastic, carrol came off early hoping that was just a precaution. dries mertens looks as if he could be a good addition.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 15:17:14
hi fellas, anybody in doubt why Sigurdson is our target for a marquee signing? UNFORTUNATELY he has become atop target for a dozen others as well, IRONMIKE.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

04 Feb 2017 17:37:45
Good result and up to 9th but why did kouyate play as right back? I don't understand that decision anybody enlighten me and noble on again as expected.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

04 Feb 2017 17:47:51
Byram had a slight niggle bilic didn't want to risk him noble played well as did whole team, snodgrass was good fonte solid.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2017 21:53:52
And another top performance from obiang ⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 10:54:01
Great win by the boys. would you have snodgrass lanzini and Antonio as our front three with Carroll or do you drop two off them for ayew and feghouli who our playing well but then you got the decision about kouyate noble and obiang if you go for back four my front three would be the first lot.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2017 17:27:40
hi fellas, nice win which I watched on big screen, WHAT have we learnt, KOUYATE love him, BUT he is not a full back in a million years OBIANG now playing as he did in Italy couple of seasons back when I was Beating the drum for him to be signed.

RANDOLPH has markedly improved SNODGRASS was a great buy as we all knew FONTE will be a good acquisition CARROLL well he's back to full fitness, and makes a mess out of all BUT the best defenders, NOBLE is too slow by far. All the rest had a fair game, AND, we can now all see the gulf between us and the top teams, which cannot be bridged at present unfortunately, IRONMIKE.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

05 Feb 2017 10:36:19
Slowly slowly bit by bit. Without payet the players are now showing what they can do. got to address right back in the summer.
