According to rumours, we are still locked in talks with Maxi for the summer but wages are a problem
Also trying to get a loan done for Bat man (apparently chelski asked for 6m more off spurs to get a deal done😂)
Perez may leave for real betis for 3.5m
Hernandez still trying to get out but door looks shut
Honestly cannot see us doing anything.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 21:48:48
It seems Batman has agreed terms with Palace. imagine picking Roy Hodgson, I thought Pelle had pulling power haha?

2.) 31 Jan 2019 21:58:06
Batman to the palace done deal.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 23:45:43
Yeah. Literally popped up after I posted.
If we can sign a deal for gomez in the summer will be happy, lad looks very good and with service could be a 20+ goal a season Bobbie
On a brighter note, lanzini back in a month, that should get us back on track.

4.) 01 Feb 2019 07:39:46
What a joke of a window. We needed defenders and cdm and we chased strikers am done.



25 Jan 2019 15:36:25
Just a quick update.
39 mins ago, Arnie turned his instagram story to a message saying, "News Very Soon"
Sorry guys.


1.) 25 Jan 2019 15:57:28
CandH have picked this up too and refer to communication with a very senior source at the club in their article.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 16:06:17
Betting odds slashed too.
Explains the increase in whispers about Gomez and Belotti now.
Oh well, great while it lasted, had a chance to be a legend. now he will take his Yuan.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 16:41:37
Once the news came out that he wanted to leave, that was it for me in terms of being disappointed. I’ve moved on now am and not worried if he moves on - mainly because now we have MP, I trust that he will make this an opportunity to improve the squad.

Which manager would really prefer a 29yr old Arnie to a 22yr old Gomez?

4.) 25 Jan 2019 16:50:47
But will Celta Vigo release Gomez when they are in relegation trouble and his goals are all they have right niw.

5.) 25 Jan 2019 17:15:10
Celta vigo have said the full release clause will have to be met €50 million euros work that out for yourselves. COYI.

6.) 25 Jan 2019 17:20:43
I’d take Gomez in a heartbeat, but wouldn’t mind Belotti either as well, or as a second option. 😳.

7.) 25 Jan 2019 18:03:15
What a bloody childish saga this has turned out to be with Arnie, who a gives f—- now, posting stupid childish cryptic messages, absolute disgrace, he thinks he’s f——- worshipped by everybody.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 18:17:08
Get Dzeko in with Gomez, no point in having two strikers wanting to be the top boy, one will just sulk and fek off, Dzeko gives Gomez the chance to settle and find his feet, some strikers hit the ground running, but most need to adapt as the game is so fast here.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 18:48:03
His brother being the top agent and master negotiatior he is has battled relentlessly and managed to squeeze 300,000 yuan pw for his brother he can now chase his dream of silverware playing against top opposition for a top Chinese team of which name I suprsingly can't remember.

Honestly I'm happy for him he deserves this move hope all his fans get the good news within the next day or two. We all love you Marko go make us proud and show us you a ready to make the step up.

On a more serious note I really hope we go all out for maxi or bellotti favouring the former. But can't say I've had the luxury of seeing these play week in week out. Maybe a blessing in disguise we can get a younger top striker in now and get that sulky man baby away from our club.



25 Jan 2019 14:39:16
Today's twitter roundup:

Lots of tweets about a concrete bid in for Chicha (8M euro) and Perez (£4m euro) - both from Valencia, personal opinion, cannot both be true. *But* given the sheer number of rumours, could be one of them

Loads of rumours again surrounding our pursuit of Belotti or Maxi Gomez - same as yesterday, unless someone leaves, will not happen

Football London suggest Maxi Gomez is our no.1 target but transfer will be end of the year - to me this is more believable.

Andy Carroll's house is up for sale, can be found on right move (properties for sale essex) and scroll down until you see the Towie house going for 4,999,999

We are now apparently interested in a double deal from Celta to include Lobotka (nifty little player actually) - cannot see it happening until summer, if at all

West Ham tweeted condolences to Cardiff and Sala upon news search was called off - horrific news and feel for the poor lads family

WH revealed as having 7th highest average attendance in Europe - well we do include all season ticket holders

About it, have removed the usual rumours linking us to every player under the sun. Chicha rumour could be real as reported in Marca but could just be a slow news day?


1.) 25 Jan 2019 15:48:59
Great summarising, Glen. Thanks again.

I’m beginning to feel that Chicha is the key move here. I’ve a suspicion that if we can get his deal done, offload his huge wages and free up our FFP position, then the Gomez deal will be done immediately, whether Arnie leaves this window or not.

If he stays until the summer, it would be interesting to see an Arnie/ Gomez spearhead.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 16:57:32
Eds (or Glen) , what do you think the chances are of us obtaining the services of Gomez AND Belotti if we can offload Arnie, Hernandez and Perez before the end of next week?

{Ed001's Note - with the owners you have, probably about 0%.}



24 Jan 2019 15:20:47
Today's twitter roundup:
So, I have actually figured out logistics behind Evergrande bid for Arnie, seems as though an unnamed Turkish club are buying their Brazilian striker Alan and they want to replace him with a top player.

This frees up an International space and would free up wages/ transfer fee for Arnie. Lots of rumours they are upping bid to 50m which should be enough for the Dave.

Amongst the chaff on twitter, seems as though two names are cropping up regarding a replacement, Belotti or Maxi Gomez, if the above is true, we will need a replacement - not 100% sure we will sell Arnie (not in the know though so who knows) for the record, would prefer Gomez if a transfer is possible.

Lots of rumours about Valencia not giving up on Chicha (apparently number 1 choice) - this may have legs but again, not if we don't get a replacement. (goo.gl/yfA5Sy)

We are currently linked to 12 replacement strikers - obviously we cannot be linked to that many, is just ridiculous
David 'boring' Moyes reckons Arnie is good enough to play for Chelsea.

A bit of sad news, bookies are slashing odds on Rice moving to Man City - can't see it happening but bookies often slash odds when they have a flurry of bets on a single market indicating 'insider' knowledge.

Thats it for today, same as yesterday, reckon nothing will happen. All strikers staying until summer when *all* four will leave.
On a plus note - saw on twitter that Andy Carroll has put his mansion on sale, any idea if an MLS side have made contact with him?


1.) 24 Jan 2019 17:13:57
Great work, Glen mate. Thank you.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 17:27:46
Love the updates Glen - if all 4 strikers go in summer that will leave Hugill and Martinez back from loan and xande to come thru the academy and Antonio as well - who needs replacements! Lol.

3.) 24 Jan 2019 17:54:42
Cheers guys :-)
Hoping Carroll selling up means he is leaving in the summer but who knows? Would be great to have 400k off the wage bill but Arnie will be tough to replace.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 18:02:13
Thanks glen. Top work there mate.

5.) 24 Jan 2019 19:20:57
Good work Glen and thanks for the update.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 21:23:03
Really well done Glen, you might start to feel the pressure for more info now from posters now you like possibly vying to be the number 1 info man🤣😂but I won’t be troubling you for info, I just comment😂👍I can hear the wife saying now about how much time you are on this site, well done thanks again for the digging and typing👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

{Ed002's Note - I think it is a compliment.}

7.) 24 Jan 2019 23:39:23
haha ironglen good lad also if there can be input is there anymore info on targets or departure is you know eds? regards.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 00:30:04
in not bin the know but i did hear Billericay are lookking at A. Carrol. The only problem is they casnt afford the plasters or bandages.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 12:41:55
Cheers everyone, problem with twitter is that all these people 'in the know' are just copying off rumour sites. I think the days of our owners leaking all sorts of info are dead and buried unfortunately. I do miss Ironmike though as he had a couple of big scoops and to be honest, I will never match those.



23 Jan 2019 09:47:11
Today's twitter roundup:
Bid in for Balotelli - personally doubt it as he is having a medical at Marseilles today according to french newspapers
Arnie told he can leave in summer - same as yesterday, fair enough
Lots of people saying Maxi Gomez must be signed - we don't have the money (or so I understand, we need to sell first)
Bid rejected for Chicha of 12m Euros - from valencia fan group (personal view, may have legs but they need to up their bid)
Duvan Zapata - stems from Italian newspapers so wouldn't trust the report
About it I think. Would appear we need to sell if we want to buy. Arnie, Chicha seem to be interesting clubs (and their agents are trying their best), Perez, cannot see anyone coming in for him as shocking,


1.) 23 Jan 2019 10:23:37
I thought we had the money just need some people off the wage bill.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 11:15:41
My bad, you are right.
Its actually quite hard posting this stuff.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no interest in or bid for Balotelli by West Ham.}

3.) 23 Jan 2019 11:54:39
Thanks ed, yes glen true that the club needs to make space for a new signing.

4.) 23 Jan 2019 12:28:18
Cheers ed - didn't believe it myself as lots of rumours he is innmarseilles having medical today + he is disruptive and we don't need that.

{Ed002's Note - There has been a broad agtreement reached with Marseille sincde the summer but getting it sorted out took until Sunday. It should go through according to the lady from Marseille.}

5.) 23 Jan 2019 15:51:57
Is glen trying to become the new mike? Lol.

6.) 23 Jan 2019 16:36:52
Haha, definitely not!
Just thought I would fill the void until he gets back :-)
Personally don't reckon we will do anything else this window anyway.

7.) 23 Jan 2019 19:18:05
You are filling it well mate lol.

8.) 23 Jan 2019 19:40:58
For what it’s worth a twitter roundup I think is good as I don’t read Twitter. We can all make guesses around the info. I think Balotelli for example Ed002 has confirmed exactly what most of us would have thought. Doubting we would bid for him but great Ed002 can add detail around the Marseille position.

I can’t see much business being done now unless it’s a late desperate move from some club for a Carroll or Chicharito.

9.) 24 Jan 2019 12:44:33
PS. cheers ed002, I do like your confirmations - you definitely seem to be in the know and helpful for us happy hammers to know that the club isn't quite as scattergun as we suspect.

25 Jan 2019 20:10:50
Fair play, Arnie's post on Instagram is pure class. Commited his future to us am guessing until the summer. Cannot see a player incoming now, can I please stop trying to be ironmike now?




24 Jan 2019 18:34:18
Here is an idea, given the tragedy with Cardiff city, why not offer them Perez for free? Pay his salary until the end of the season as well?


1.) 24 Jan 2019 21:04:50
Won't help us or them really, a he's garbage so won't help them and b we won't offload his salary

Lose lose situation.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 21:06:40
Sounds like a nice gesture, Glen. Don’t think it would get him off our FFP balance, though.

3.) 24 Jan 2019 22:05:25
It’s Nantes’ tragedy more than Cardiff’s.

4.) 25 Jan 2019 14:44:34
Bucky. It’s a tragedy for his friends and family. In this instance, I feel nothing for the clubs (as businesses)



15 Jan 2019 20:49:00
Just a quickie - I don't think it is possible for a Chinese club to buy Arnie. They have 100% tax on transfers so a 45m deal would cost 90m.
Plus if it is Shanghai they are already at their quota of 4 foreign players. Reckon he is after a new contract to pay off his debts.


1.) 15 Jan 2019 23:50:14
Agreed they can only have 4 and can only play 3 at any time. I assume one of the Brazilians would be moved. Obviously not Hulk as he captains the side.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 01:33:05
Wouldnt work as ARNIE thinks he's SUPERMAN so you can't have two marvel players is it in the rules about having marvel characers HULK &SUPERMAN.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 05:16:29
Having been to China and also watched a lot of Asian football, I don’t think he knows what he is getting himself into.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 09:24:17
Most want out after 12 months.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 09:26:50
Very good, Whorya!

6.) 16 Jan 2019 10:49:12
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)

7.) 16 Jan 2019 11:56:36
Which stable is SpongeBob in?



13 Jan 2019 15:21:36
Any news on the replacement for Arnie eds/ mike?


{Ed002's Note - Not since yesterday.}

1.) 13 Jan 2019 23:30:19
No as I said nothing is rubber stamped as yet. IRONMIKE.



11 Jan 2019 11:53:17
Why not have a crack at Josef Martinez @ Atlanta? 25 years old and had a massive year in MLS. Currently rated 7th in the world on form alone. If we signed him and Almiron for roughly what we sell Arnie/ Perez for (Assuming around £40m after sell ons) would be a massive deal.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 20:33:14
Can’t argue with the enthusiasm!

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!

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.

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.

Fair enough, always wait for your responses anyway - loved the insight into how transfer monies were paid and the info around how work permits are allocated, has been really useful in sifting through the junk.

C'mon guys, this is generally a friendly site.
How about ED002, when something is written that is patently untrue, simply do not publish.
I get Mike meant a verbal agreement (we all know these are illegal - but have been going on for years with agents), I just googled and saw the lad had a contract to 2022 so wasn't possible to get a precontract.
Also, the player in question looks sh! te.


{Ed002's Note - Not about his age then? Why open this up again?}

We are doing the same as the big clubs, buy cheap young players, develop them, loan them out (maybe they will come good) but eventually sell on for a massive profit.
If you look at Chelsea, Man City, Barcelona they all do this and make fortunes on the players - its a good way to make a bit of extra money.

How do you become a scout? I go over to Caribbean every year so would be easy to go Brazil/ Argentina instead and watch some matches.
I think we need to start looking at getting potential superstars rather than the ready made (save money and high sell-on) until we are a lot bigger.

spot on warrrington, liked the balance. Sometimes Ironmike got a scoop and when he was off the ball Ed002 (who I assume is an agent given his knowledge) stepped in. Its a shame Ironmike has gone really.

Hi Ed, have heard a lot of rumours that Arnie has caused problems at WH. Not entirely sure what they mean so 2 questions, has he caused problems and if so, any idea if it is just him being moody or more serious?


{Ed002's Note - Disruption may be the best word - whilst looking for a move. His brother will spend the next few months looking for interested clubs.}

If he has genuine MH issues the club should support him.
One symptom of a lot of MH issues is an inability to manage finances so maybe the club *should* step in and help in the short term?
