I've just read that if Fulham get relegated we could move for Mitrovic, that's not a bad replacement for Carroll?

{Ed002's Note - He will certainly be available but the revised asking price after declared interest from two Chinese sides will scare off Spurs who want him as cover and a replacement for Llorente.}

I suppose it’s down to the player, then. Does he want to play regularly, or warm the bench and watch Kane?

And, of course, who will pay him the most?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no approach from West Ham, and no "bid gone in".}

I’m sure you’re right and I wouldn’t want him anyway IF we’re genuinely considering the likes of Gomez and/ or Marega.

I can see a serious clearout of our current 4 strikers.

{Ed002's Note - I very much doubt either will be joining West Ham.}

Is your doubt based on the idea that they are too high profile for WH? If we don’t strive for better players than we currently have, we will never improve.

It is indisputable that the overall squad quality went up last summer because the owners invested heavily and the new manager had the clout to bring in better upgrades.

I don’t know what our budget will be for the summer, but the departure of a tranche of high earners and their transfer price should put us in a decent position to upgrade yet again.

It might be a longish road, but as the squad improves and our results improve correspondingly, surely the higher profile players elsewhere might consider moving to us.

It would be interesting to hear your thoughts on strikers who you think should be realistic targets for the summer.

Markro, if the foreign players currently linked with us are bounty hunters then we have a chance, but realistically any of those that have ambition for European football, I don’t think we have any chance, unless we are a stepping stone? I know you are the eternal optimist Mark, which is great, I seem the opposite I know, but unless we put ourselves in the limelight for the right reasons, we will stay a mid table Premiership club, but it could be worse realistically! ⚒⚒⚒.

I am hearing from certain "Sources" that the club have 25 Million to spend in the summer. I assume we will sell Marko, Hernandez, Perez, Obiang, Adrian and others?

I hope the funds chest is a bit bigger mate or we got issues lol.

So do I. Just checking as its become click bait on a West Ham fans forum I use. Many in outraged at an unsubstantiated transfer fund figure. Nothing unusual for a West Ham forum hahaha.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 11:12:37
might be 25mill to start
but chuck in masuaka, chico and obiang will raise another 30mill and all have youth players ready to fill there spots
byram, fernandes, hugill, byram and oxford will raise another 30mill
so we then sit at 85mill and only lost really
masuaku-johnson ready to replace
obiang-coventry ready to replace
chico-silva ready to replace
then chuck in the likes of perez maybe marko, antonio, ogbonna, snoddy and god knows who else pelle deems not good enough we could be sat on 150mill
even with the intial lists 85mill is a good sum of cash if spent wisely and there are some real good free agents out there this summer
brahimi and herrera from porto
pereira and darmian from man u
all 4 would improve our starting 11 and we haven't even touched the 85mill.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 11:49:36
Sounds doable for them players I'd say a good summer would be Gomez, kessie from Milan or someone similar, brahimi and a left back all would be starters so squad and bench would have viable options instead of the walking dead.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 12:29:24
Of the 'sell list' I would rather keep Masuaku and Fernandez.
I have always been led to believe it is the wages causing the problem and if we get rid of Chicha, Perez, Carroll I think it is about 400k saved in wages. The rest will probably go as well so your logic is fairly sound and can see around 100m spending power and 500k in wages.
Purely speculation of course.

Agree0 Disagree2

11 Mar 2019 13:22:54
As long as you've got all summer to teach Masuaku how to defend - even if used as a winger he needs to learn marking, following your man, heading, tackling etc . actually just flog him cheap.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 13:23:37
"byram, fernandes, hugill, byram and oxford will raise another 30mill"

Sorry mate, I think you're being massively over optimistic there.

Byram is far to injury prone, Hugill isn't even being considered for a contract by Boro so God knows who else is going to come in for him, Fernandes has had like 2 ok games this season and Oxford got his backside handed to him in the 3 full games he's played (conceding 11) so far and got dropped.

We'd be lucky to get anywhere near £15M for that lot and that takes in to account the fact you're trying to sell Byram twice!

Agree5 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 15:05:16
Guyser, when he plays well Masu is brilliant. Maybe you are right but don't think he is any worse than cresswell and younger.
Not up to me though.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 06:52:13
Sorry Glen but i think your missing the point Masuaku was brought as a defender but he can't defend. We have a lot of Dross and once we get rid of the dross the Manager could be in a good position to upgrade the team. Some of our players woulds stuggle to get into a Championship side, its all very well saying we will get this amout of money for these players but i find it hard to beleive that any clubs woud pay anything for some of our so called players.
PS. Carrolls house is up for sale that mebe a point in the right direction sor a start.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 09:13:43
You are right with valuation of players, of our players only Chicha and Arnie will net more than 10m. I doubt we will sell Antonio but he would also be more than 10 - rest of the players we will be lucky to get rid of without giving them away.
Yes! Loving it :-) You seen the state of his house? Its on rightmove at the moment and looks absolutely tasteless!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 13:48:20
Masu has tweeted about his position not being LB in the past. He will be gone in summer 100%
85m is a realistic budget for this summer considering what is available and who we COULD sell. And that is 98% reliant on Arnie being sold, and realistically all the funds we get for him would go on replacing him, so does not effect budget for other positions we need.
What is exciting is the potential wages we could free up! Whatever happens i expect a relatively busy summer.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 20:17:45
No way Arnie leaves in the Summer.

No one is going to pay 45m for him at 30 years old. Especially not in China where the transfer tax would take the fee to 90m!

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Mar 2019 13:18:26
We have apparently agreed £35m with the team in China, so I agree that £45m will not come from anywhere. But i can see us accepting £30m plus for him, which will not be out of reach for a number of clubs.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 13:18:46
I wouldn’t be surprised to see an entire striker clearout. Carroll will leave for nothing and Arnie, Chicha and Perez are, effectively, depreciating assets at their respective ages. If he keeps fit, Arnie has 2 or 3 years left at the top, so he still has pretty good value. How attractive a proposition he is for a club elsewhere depends on how he performs for the rest of this season, so the incentive is there for him to do his best. However, bearing in mind his recent new, better deal with us, with the exception of China, who could afford his wages or offer him enough to make him want to leave?

Others will be sold as mentioned above.

For me, I would like to see an entire new strike force, but when Arnie scores a hat-trick next game, I’ll reconsider!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2019 18:37:18
I think we can score three at Cardiff.

Hernandez, Lanzini and Arnautovic.

Well the Irons are back in Wales tomorrow - I'm really hopeful it is going to be a better showing than this time last year when we were thumped at Swansea, I think our squad is stronger and really looking forward to seeing them - I'll be like a child in a sweetshop - here's to 3 points - COYI.

We should win it comfortably.

0-3 that is very in-West Ham. I’m going for Cardiff to score first and we win 1-2 with a nail biting finish. Been a fan too long :)

Our defence has been outstanding recently and we really need to deal with our goal difference imbalance to improve any chance of 7th.

. and, of course, I’m an optimist! 🙂.

Well let’s hope I’m right after that first half.

09 Mar 2019 17:05:22
Again - every time we get anywhere near 7th or even 8th we way absolute garbage 4 defenders stood and watched the first goal and Frederick's forgot he was supposed to to move up the pitch for the second

How come every week it's Rice who looks anything at all at least he hit the post

Ah well Maidenhead won.

we always bootle when we get close to 7th.

Great effort by the club on Saturday with the christening of the Billy Bonds stand I got choked watching Billy het choked with the emotion of you know what I mean.

Great to see so many ex players turn up as well and what a cheer for Ludo the loudest of the lot after Billy of course

799 appearances - would love to think Rice might beat record - well I can dream can't I?

Believable2 Unbelievable0

05 Mar 2019 09:10:09
Hi Mercerl

Agreed everything you said including you can dream bit :)

If young Dec stayed at the club for the rest of his career and say he played an average of 32 Prem games a season ( that's a push with injury and suspension) and a average of 6 FA and League Cup combined, that would total 38 games per season, if you wanted to throw for argument sake a extra 5 for Europe in the future at a max he plays 44 games a season, ( That is far to many on average but let's just say)

He would need to play at the club for around 18 seasons taking him up to 38 to hit even 792 games, the above figures are really pushing it so it would be a case he needs to play until his 40 plus minimum.

Its not going to happen, and i'm so bored at work I just thought i'd mention it :)

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2019 11:43:48
Well done Warrington amazing isn't it Billy achieved the 799 when he was 40 having had a complete season out - now get with your work before the boss turns up lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2019 09:09:59
Does anyone know if we intend to try and sign Maxi Gomez again in the Summer?

I personally think it was a mistake not signing him in January and allowing him to stay at Celta Vigo until June.

Also, are we going to look at Stanislav Lobotka again?

I know we have been linked to Shelvey recently, and whilst he is homegrown, he isn't the box-to-box player we need.

We have Lanzini as the creative midfielder in the middle of the park, we have Rice as the defensive midfielder. now we need the engine. Lobotka is the better option.

If we insist on signing a homegrown engine, then I'd rather go for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

I agree.

Reports that Liverpool looking at Gomez after Suarez reportedly recommended them.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 11:27:52
Shelvey?

Ditch the sentiment. He’s a hothead who thinks too much of himself.

We can do far, far better by looking elsewhere this summer.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

03 Mar 2019 14:38:06
Agreed, I don't rate him and a nasty piece of work by all accounts.

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 19:18:15
shelvey is kinda the opposite of what we need in our midfield, with rice already playing the sitting role where does the pace and energy come from?

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 20:28:41
Sorry to disagree re Shelvey, hothead yes, nasty yes, but love to seem him with us, no place for softies in the defence, love a toughie at the back and up front leading the line!

Agree0 Disagree2

03 Mar 2019 20:56:42
Fair play, Chelms and I have no doubt that he has some talent as a footballer, but I have several concerns:

1. He frequently runs the risk of being carded

2. His arrogance and opinionated attitude is not what our dressing room needs

3. If Benitez, who is a good man manager, has kicked him out of his match day squad, there will be very good reasons for doing so. MP doesn’t need the hassle when he is building a cohesive squad to challenge for Europe next season.

I too, like strong and competitive players, but you can be a tough competitor (like Rice) without being ugly about it and rubbing up referees the wrong way.

For the money that’s being mentioned (£20m) I am sure that Husillos and MP can find better.

Ah, well. Differences of opinion are healthy! 👍.

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 22:15:41
Definately nasty, he tried to kill Harry Potter 😀.

03 Mar 2019 23:12:35
Markro, yes I will agree with all you say, but as always it’s down to who wants to come to us not who we want unfortunately? I think it’s all a bit silly reading about we’re interested in this one then that one, knowing none are seriously coming to us! it’s all so stupid, then as Mike said in a post about home grown players becoming super expensive after Brexit? Shelvey’s been linked with us for a while, I can’t believe that players when they are linked to other clubs don’t tap others at that club for info? He’s a London bloke, I personally would not Like to freeze in the north east being an Essex man!

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Mar 2019 07:38:19
Very good Sdl!

Fingers crossed we can attract the talent MP wants, Chelms.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2019 09:06:12
Shelvey isn't a bad player, but I don't see him being an improvement on what we already have. We have Declan Rice in the holding position, we have creativity in Manuel Lanzini when he is fit, now we need an engine to permanently replace an ageing Noble. Not that I have anything against Noble, but he isn't getting any younger.


Shelvey is not a box-to-box player, he sits deep. not a problem, but we have Rice for that.

I'd much rather pay more money and get someone like Ruben Loftus-Cheek.


I have no idea if we are evening looking at Ruben, but he is young, strong, physical and is a box-to-box player.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Mar 2019 17:06:05
I like Shelvey and if Dec gets injured or red carded we need someone to keep pushing Dec and if Pel. wants him i don't see that being a problem. Another London lad would be welcomed.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2019 08:35:50
What about shelveys passing range? Top draw . You don't see him make any pass without enough pace on it . How many times do we see some of ours hit a pass and it comes up short? He would improve us in that area,

What's the chances of Tripp Smith buying out Golds 35% in WHU and investing some serious dollar this summer?

Believable1 Unbelievable1

I can’t see the David’s giving up their monopoly, though any cash injection would be welcome.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 19:16:43
Markro, Gold is not getting any younger, and with a good finish in the league he could sell up while stock is high. I doubt he would sell all 35% but maybe 25% to give tripp 35%. Maybe after Brexit we might see some moves, obviously depending on the economics of UK.

Agree0 Disagree0

I’d love to see it, if it means serious investment.

I wonder if Arniie’s absence was more sinister than feeling “ill”?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Mar 2019 07:02:59
Markro, I would say yes having seen this sulky man child’s absence due to so called “injuries” since the China transfer saga came about in December! Since then when he has been on the pitch he’s been anonymous anyway, sooner he is not around the club the better for me!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2019 18:44:13
Lets see what happens tomorrow, I for one ( after being at city wed night ) believe that an Arnie with the sulks and a fever is better than AC, but let's wait and see.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Mar 2019 10:50:22
Realistically, AC had little to do because he got very little service. We were on the back foot for almost the entire game and defended as well as we have done all season. He even had a difficult chance on target with his wrong foot resulting in a very good save from the keeper.

Having said all of that, the game has passed him by during his long injury absences and he is now far too one dimensional for modern football. He should not be offered a new contract and should be a part of the wholesale frontline clearout we need in the summer. Perez has shot his bolt with MP, Chicha isn’t good enough to be the one up top and the brothers Arnautovic should reap what they sow.

I’m looking forward to the arrival of at least two new, high quality strikers before next season.
