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.}

1.) 15 Mar 2019 15:53:40
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".}

2.) 15 Mar 2019 15:58:26
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.}

3.) 15 Mar 2019 16:28:35
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.

4.) 15 Mar 2019 18:23:12
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! ⚒⚒⚒.

5.) 15 Mar 2019 19:47:42
Oi! Stop raining on my parade!

I know, I know - but I can’t help but hope.



25 Jan 2019 18:48:25
Arnie has just said he is staying, so will we still get Gomez, the club have always said that they wanted him if Arnie stays or goes?


1.) 25 Jan 2019 19:13:37
I had a sneaky feeling but didn't think that would be the news. Wow we should still get maxi Gomez in him and arnautovic up top would be silly then arnautovic can leave in summer gives maxi time to bed in. Then we can perhaps go again in summer to replace arnautovic if he wants to go.

Now help us win the Fa cup Arnie and we might forgive you.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 19:26:31
As whole the statement is very PC. However, if he pulls his finger out and works his socks off moving forward, I’ll take it.

His brother, on the other hand, needs to p*ss off.

I really hope we can move Chicha and Perez on, ease any FFP issues and get the Gomez deal done. At worst, can we buy him now and loan back for the rest of the season?

That will put us in a great position if Arnie is due to leave in the summer.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 21:27:01
Well i supose its the best for WH but he has a lot of Bridges to build before he gets the fans back.

4.) 26 Jan 2019 15:13:38
Armies only staying because it wasn’t suitable for us to let him go, I don’t believe for a minute any disingenuous and cynical statements from him or his brother, with false loyalty pleas👎 His only”here for the beer (£££) if you you remember that saying in the “Double Diamond”advert, you must be getting on a bit, 🤣😂👍⚒⚒ Could be a few crunching tackles tonight, might be another Millwall type of game, especially with Wally Downes wanting to cause an upset, no wonder Arnies not wanting to play😂🤣.



23 Jan 2019 20:36:12
Just read one report saying West Ham are a matter of hours away from signing Maxi Gomez, (£40m apparently), we shall see?


1.) 23 Jan 2019 20:56:46
Would love that to be true, but won’t hold my breath quite yet.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 21:30:18
We might bid but unless they really have to why would Celta Vigo release him now? He is the only one keeping them up. Maybe a bid that we get him in summer to replace Arnie might be something they would accept.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 22:34:49
I just can't seem to believe this rumour but if true I would be 1 happy hammer.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 00:50:34
Seeing rumour a Zapata bid rejected - did we really bid? Also something about Sunderland striker and Drinkwater - I’m imagining two journalists sitting in toilet cubicles throwing names out and then writing a source said.

5.) 24 Jan 2019 03:50:26
No one ain’t coming in unless players are moved on.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 08:12:58
Bkkhammer, the truth is imo, the ones that need shipping out are all to bloody cosy earning stupid money not playing with still plenty of contract time left, injured, or not good enough to interest other clubs for one reason or another!

7.) 24 Jan 2019 08:26:18
Could not agree more Chelmsford we are in catch 22 to many players are on silly wages hopefully under Pelle we may be able to change this because no one is moving to west ham to win cups etc . It’s all about money.

8.) 24 Jan 2019 12:42:35
News report from Celta's Sporting director saying he will not be allowed to leave until summer (sound familiar? )
Cannot see us buying or selling anyone in this window, Pellegrini's history suggests he dislikes January window unless he really needs to replace someone or a special free transfer comes up.

9.) 24 Jan 2019 13:03:46
I would be very happy to see Arnie go and Gomez come in. But it won't happen this window unless we meet the release clause.
Unless Arnie goes, nothing significant will happen this window.



20 Jan 2019 16:53:36
It looks like we're looking at Mattia Destro, I've read his agent is in London?


1.) 20 Jan 2019 17:16:19
Worse than perez.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 00:02:39
He's only had 2 starts with Genoa. Goals per game Siena 2.5. Roma 2.3.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:13:12
2.5 and 2.3 goals per game. What a record!



18 Jan 2019 16:14:38
I've seen we are now interested in this Belotti gezzer?

I think we will want to put the Cardiff performance well and truly behind us, so I feel sorry for Huddersfield as I can see us winning 5-0, and Mike where are you, we need you back mate.


1.) 15 Mar 2019 07:47:50
Stevie66, think your prediction could be wildly over optimistic🤣😂Huddersfield May have been the whipping boys for a lot of teams, but we are WH and have a massive history of folding up against those we are expected to beat, the most recent obvious example AFC Wimbledon! I think the Yorkshire side are a good hard working side with no so called “ superstars” with a good work ethic, which is more than can be said of at least a couple of ours! They are in the position they are for obvious reasons, but away to us they will see us as a scalp to be taken! I just hope we can score more than them on Saturday even if it’s not 5-0😂🤣 Apologies mate for being the voice of caution, I hope you can tell me “I told you so” 🤣👍⚒⚒⚒COYI.

2.) 15 Mar 2019 09:42:56
Nice one Chelmsford hope you're well mate, you could be right as I predicted a 4-1 win against Cardiff, surely one of my predictions will be right one day 😂 Would be nice to finish in the top 10 then we can get ready for what should be a busy summer for us.

3.) 15 Mar 2019 09:47:27
Interesting - I went for 4:0 on my Super6 prediction.

4.) 15 Mar 2019 12:44:36
I'm beginning to think we need to have a few changes to the team tomorrow I'd go a bit redial and play Masuarku in front of Creswell giving Anderson a rest with Anthonio up front alongside Arnie

Alternatively how about a back 3 of Bsluna, Diop and Ogbonna with 2 wing backs who can bomb on like Frederick's who we know is fast

Huddersfield are going to be physical so we need to be at them.



09 Mar 2019 16:56:42
What an opportunity to put a bit of a gap between us and Everton, how are we mid table when you think of the teams below us that have taken points off of us.




23 Feb 2019 09:27:25
A lot of people will be saying we got lucky with our first goal, (and we did) but when you think back to the Liverpool game and the goal they scored you could say we were owed that one.


1.) 23 Feb 2019 10:08:17
The Liverpool offside goal cost us two points - the Chicha handball made no difference, without it we would still have won 2:1.

2.) 23 Feb 2019 13:54:29
Not only that but we were owed 2 goals against us where it wS Hand ball - Bournemouth and I can't remember the other team anyway we are still owed pne

With the action of the Fulham Goalkeeper pushing we should have had 2 penalties and the GK sent off for 2 yellow cards.

That old saying of what goes around comes around actually fits in this case.

3.) 23 Feb 2019 21:17:23
We also should have gotten a clear penalty when Hernandez was shoved by their keeper at the corner where Antonio had a shot first half. It was blatant and VAR would have given it.



06 Feb 2019 16:12:06
Just going back to this Joao Felix saga, we were willing to spend £45m on Gomez and still keep Arnie, so in the summer if we sold Arnie for £50m plus the £45 we were going to spend then we are nearly there, a few other players we be going as well, so it's not as ridiculous as a lot of people think, we could actually afford him, it's whether or not he would come to us.


1.) 06 Feb 2019 16:25:57
Stevie 2 words mate Champions Leauge.

2.) 07 Feb 2019 01:01:15
we Need depth as well. Don’t think we can throw all our money at one player even if he would come. We missed the boat on this guy we need to move on.

3.) 07 Feb 2019 13:44:48
Looks a great PROSPECT, but very lightweight at this stage, and lightweight players like him TEND to come good in the PL around 24+ years old, for whatever reason. He may be an instant hit, never know.

I agree with Sdl though, we need to get 5 players with our cash this summer, that need to be PL ready now. Cannot blow it all on one position either, especially one where we have a lot of players already (most are injured or young though this season LOL) . Out of our reach from what you can read online.



31 Jan 2019 17:26:37
I thought West Ham were going to be one of the busiest clubs today, I've been watching deadline day since lunch time and not one single report on them, they haven't even been mentioned, don't even know if there's a reporter at their training ground, but as DG said, "don't go to bed yet".


1.) 31 Jan 2019 20:54:46
Stevie lad, you were taken in like the rest of us.

On the other hand chaps, am I right in saying by winning the Europa league you qualify for champions league, that could be our only way to get to play champions league football (as it's going to be difficult to get into the top four, ) therefore attracting quality players, but I completely understand what you're saying.

Hi Mike, I've seen Celta Vigo have done a U turn on the Gomez deal, is that right, is that why we are looking at Batyuashi?

It could end up being s bidding war, (which is good for us) as long as the bidding starts at £50m?

Absolute joke at the moment, Cardiff last week and now Huddersfield 15 mins to get 2 goals to draw.

Chelmsford, I know I said in another post I can see us winning 5-0 I've actually gone for 4-0 in my super 6 prediction I hope I don't regret changing my mind, fingers crossed for a big win.
