This is a question for IRONMIKE as it relates to something he has mentioned in the past.

Are West Ham still attempting to implement a new contract structure in which base wage is lower and performance/ appearance bonuses are there to bump it up as they do at a few sides in Europe? I remember you mentioned this when discussing Rice at some point.

If so, do people believe this will help or hinder us in pushing the club forward?

Thank you.

Hard to say, IF the teams doing well as a whole WAGES will look to increase all the way round, and obviously the reverse is true, so you takes your choice on a 360 perspective. Some players will go for it others won’t IRONMIKE.

Thanks for answering.

It’s just a shame teams can’t negotiate a new contract when players aren’t performing but are sometimes held to ransom when a player goes on a decent run. Therein lies the real big problem when chasing the elite. Wages rise considerably whilst in a good patch but then a year or two can end you if you aren’t sensible.

I believe it’s wrong to compare the job and life of a footballer to our own “normal” jobs and lives.

We have no clue what it takes to be a footballer.

But, having said that, I imagine many footballers suffer depression and still do their best.

Dreamland would be Messi if we are chasing players that we have zero chance of getting.

The only one that is likely is Gomez if we move fast enough. But that’s a stretch.

I would say there is a 100% we sign neither. However hard we may try.
I imagine the club know that and will not spend too long, if any time at all, chasing these two players.

I’ve met him and he’s a nasty so and so.
Wouldn’t want him at West Ham based purely on that.
But I’m sure the club will do their due diligence if they did want him and I can only trust the process.

Just because a player isn’t in a squad doesn’t make him a bad player. Just that the manager doesn’t fancy him for whatever reason. That’s not to say I want to sign the guy, I honestly don’t know much about him, but he can’t be judged for not getting into a side that is below us (at the moment) .

It’s Nantes’ tragedy more than Cardiff’s.

We can all write gossip and rumour.
Not much of what anyone says actually comes true.
If you like I can write loads of stuff now and again.
Perhaps that will fill the instaible need for unsubstantiated news.

The source of the news should tell you everything you need to know.

If something real happens then it will be mentioned in multiple places. I think we all know that the most reliable sources are here (eds and ironmike), Ken Dyer and ExWhuemployee. If none of them have mentioned something then it’s a safe bet it’s not true. Unless 2 or 3 of these break news then it’s a waste of time even thinking about it.

Unfortunately Superman is DC and Hulk is Marvel.

If you check the FIFA regs on superheroes per squad you will find that you may have one from each but not two from the same comic universe. (This takes into account multiple universes within said comic universe)

Essentially we aren’t replacing Arnie are we? He wasn’t signed as a forward but became one under Moyes. We’ve replaced Arnie with Anderson so have probably already upgraded.

We are still replacing Sakho at this point. Well Ashton really. Forwards have been our issue for years and we must get it right in this occasion.

It will be sad to see Arnie go but fans must remember they were slating him at the start as he was utter garbage in their eyes.

It’s not a big drama when he goes. This is football. He’s not from East London. He doesn’t have ties with the club, people must surely not expect more from him. The sooner fans grow up and just accept it and not take it personally then the better for all concerned really.
