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.



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




18 Jan 2019 13:16:40
I've just been told Arnie has been pulled from the squad tomorrow, not in the right frame of mind apparently.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 14:00:15
Bloody shame Stevie, I bet you often phone in to your boss if you still work and tell him that🤣🤣 What a total disgrace for a professional, unless that’s a cover for being dropped by MP, he should have his wages docked! But I also think if that’s the case the management should have the courage to tell the fans it’s because of his attitude, but then of course that could backfire in selling him, so catch 22 maybe? ⚒⚒.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 14:28:38
I suffered a bout of depression last year. I still turned up to work and did my job, so should he.
Chelmsford - spot on fine him until he is in 'the right mind' again.

3.) 18 Jan 2019 15:07:35
Oh dear, this is not going to end happily, if as reported his thrown his toys out the pram I would not be surprised this is the last we see of him. MP will not tolerate this and seems the kind of bloke that will just let him sulk to he sees sense, but the way Arnie comes across that may be a while.

I do not see the benefit in keeping him if he will constantly sulk for the rest of the season, what a waste of wages we pay him.

Im not saying we give in to him for a lousy £35m but if this is the way its going to be see if this China team will cough up more and just get rid. We are in a good place at the moment and we just don't need attitudes in the squad.

We scored plenty of goals without him anyway, and as I said before when his not playing other players seem to step up more rather than try to play through him all the time.

He created with Stoke and we bought him knowing how he treated Stoke when he wanted the move, so why should the DGS and indeed MP be so surprised by his antics.

If DGS come out and start talking loyalty to WH that would be hypocritical as he basically refused to play for Stoke to get his move to WH, it did not bother the DGS than and as now the shoe is on the other foot they should not be surprised now.

Bored of this story now.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 16:08:37
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.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 06:34:57
Sorry, Bucky. They’re paid huge amounts of money to do what they love doing. How many of us can say that?



17 Jan 2019 21:05:28
Looks like Shanghai are going for Payet, would this be instead of Arnie?


1.) 17 Jan 2019 23:30:43
Possibly IRONMIKE.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 07:27:18
different style players. make you mind up haha!

3.) 18 Jan 2019 08:17:28
I have just read online the thoughts of “Dave Walker the host of The West Ham Way Podcast on Phoenix FM” I absolutely agree 100% with this man’s comments on Arnautovic current on off departure from our club, to much to quote, but if it’s of any interest, go online and read it👍He is basically calling Arnie a s——-g for the snakey way he and his Brother have gone about this saga and the massive ego he has of himself! I personally would never ever want to see him in a WH shirt again, simply for the way he has conducted himself! We don’t need or want him or players like him with that attitude, I wonder how Alex Ferguson would have handled him, with a big, “F—- Off, I think 😂😂⚒⚒⚒.

4.) 18 Jan 2019 11:06:57
I noticed when he got taken off against Arsenal he wouldn't look Pellegrini in the face he turned his he head when he shook his hand. I hope he doesn't bring the rest of the team down with his sulking and attitude.

5.) 18 Jan 2019 11:37:15
Dave, that’s why I wouldn’t play him again, I think he could be a disruptive influence, the yeam imo played with more freedom when Arnie wasn’t there and the goals were flowing as well! His attitude when being subbed towards Pellegrini was one of disdain, you don’t expect to salute the manager but for goodness sake show some respect, who does he think he is?



16 Jan 2019 17:55:22
I've just read that West Ham have sent delegates to Spain to try and get the Maxi Gomez deal done?


1.) 16 Jan 2019 18:24:04
Yesterday. IRONMIKE.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 22:49:32
Is the bid dependant on Arnie leaving? Or they looking to secure him for summer should Arnie decide to stay?

3.) 16 Jan 2019 23:13:08
We were after gabigol before arnautovic wanted to leave so I don't see why we couldn't providing we can get rid of perez. Sales of Obiang and Hernandez could help raise extra funds if sold although former would leave us light in midfield.

4.) 17 Jan 2019 09:01:22
question for the eds if AC Milan were to buy piatek would this mean a spell on the bench for Patrick cutrone? thank you in advance!

{Ed001's Note - that would depend, what if Piatek doesn't settle? Or Cutrone has a storming run of games keeping Piatek on the bench? No one can know until it happens mate.}

5.) 17 Jan 2019 13:14:12
that makes sense I suppose I was going to ask if you or one of the eds would be able to do a player profile on cutrone please. thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Cutrone is another player not moving to West Ham.}

6.) 17 Jan 2019 13:24:49
I didn't realise he had to move to us to have a player profile done ; )

{Ed001's Note - added him to the list mate.}

7.) 17 Jan 2019 16:50:11
thanks mate!

8.) 18 Jan 2019 08:55:47
Eds, who in your opinion could move to WH? I have it as no one unless we ship players out and even then depends on who is sold/ loaned out.

{Ed001's Note - I certainly expect a striker to join. Probably Gomez by the looks of it. To be honest, with the owners you have and their meddling, I wouldn't really want to put a definite on anyone! They are so flighty and seem to change targets on a whim.}

20 Jan 2019 12:45:37
With reports saying that Arnie is now staying are we still going to add a striker as we know Carroll and Perez are not up to it, if only Mike was on here to put us in the picture?




15 Jan 2019 17:42:24
Would west ham consider selling all there strikers as they have all been linked with moves, Arnie to China, Hernandez and Perez to Spain and the Carroll/ Shelvey swap, would it be s good thing for a team 9th in the table to sell all there strikers, what's your thoughts and who would you like to see come in?


1.) 15 Jan 2019 18:08:07
Arnie obviously would be a massive loss the other 3 probably wouldn't notice they were gone replacements in Jan is hard but our football, manager, location and current league position are all good considerations fir players just need to have the cash.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 18:13:36
Arnie’s on his way; Hernandez is keen to leave; Perez isn’t up to it; Carroll is a CF from a bygone age and really only useful as an impact sub (Can anyone genuinely see MP renewing his contract? ) ; Xande lacks the experience; there are noises about interest in Antonio too.

We might well need a couple of forwards:

Piatek + 1 please.

(And yes, Ed02, I know what you think, but there has been further media speculation)

3.) 15 Jan 2019 18:44:40
Posted is a dream but I'll buy into it and can we make the +1 gomez.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 19:47:40
Carroll gone in the summer
Hernadez and perez hasn't worked out
Arnie if he want out let him go
How much is that off the wage bill?
And if it gives 60m to spent.



14 Jan 2019 20:11:58
Young French striker Alexander Malinde has been pictured in a west ham kit, any news on this?


{Ed002's Note - By Ibrahimovic?}

1.) 14 Jan 2019 21:25:11
Stevie keep an eye on Dzeko situation WH spoke to Roma yesterday it may well be about this player? IRONMIKE.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 21:35:21
Cheers Mike.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 21:46:44
Who? By the way, is Ibrahimovic a wind up?



14 Jan 2019 16:20:15
At the moment we have a pretty good dressing room don't let the Arnie saga spoil it, take the £45m and move on.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 18:34:31
That’s the general idea, we are getting closer on the sale IRONMIKE.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 22:12:50
I understand stoke get 20% of profit on sale. So if I’m right that would be 45-20=25 x .2 = 5 leaving us with 40?

3.) 14 Jan 2019 23:36:47
Maths correct. IRONMIKE.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 01:37:54
That’s good the 20% is on profit and not on the transfer fee. Hopefully we can get someone lined up as we should grab it. Good money for a 29 year old who doesn’t want to stay and hasn’t actually achieved anything in his career so won’t get massive offers if we make him stay despite his brother previously talking up the Champions League clubs - won’t happen and I reckon he has realised that.



12 Jan 2019 14:33:40
Looks like Arnie is off, going by his reaction to being subbed, so who is a realistic possibility of replacing him?


{Ed002's Note - Munir El Haddadi is off the list as he has gone elsewhere. Tosun is available and better than Everton realise. Mario Mandzukic is available but out for 3-4 weeks with injury. Radamel Falcao is available. Josef Martinez would be a coup if possible. Jean-Kévin Augustin - RBL are sick if the sight of him. Fernando Llorente a short term option. Edin Dzeko another possibility.}

1.) 12 Jan 2019 15:45:15
Martinez would be a great signing, but Llorente, Falcao and Mandzukic would be short term.

I’m sure we can trust MP and Husillos.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 18:57:58
So as ed points out, there is lots to look at, heads up people there is a future :)

3.) 12 Jan 2019 22:57:20
Antonio did well going past players and causing havoc. Carroll was obviously asked to do a job up front of holding the ball up as we dropped the midfield deeper. He did it pretty well. No problem with either of their performances.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 08:36:58
Martinez *is* an option ed? That is fantastic news to me. Sometimes watch MLS if I cannot sleep and him and almiron have been on fire this year :-) only other interesting option on there for me is Tosun.

{Ed002's Note - The player's agent and the club are to discuss a new contract where the expectation is there will be an improvement on the $30k a week he now gets, else whey will look to Europe. So a coup as I said, if it were possible.}

5.) 13 Jan 2019 17:05:36
how come rbl are sick of the sight of augustin?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimprortant.}

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

Arnie will be on the bench once Kane is fit anyway?

Would be ok until the summer, but I thought I see that if we sold Arnie then we would look to get a replacement in this window and not wait until summer?

Mike, all the posters on this site really appreciate all your knowledge and input, you are always a step ahead of every other site, I just hope you and Ed002 can resolve any differences and draw a line under it and start again, we're getting to the end of this window and we would all love to know who is coming and going at our club, and your the only one that can do that, so I hope you will reconsider and stay with us, cheers mate.

I thought Arnie wanted to have the challenge of playing in the champions league but obviously not, it's all about money because what's he going to win in China a f**king pot noodle and a king prawn, if they offer £50 then f**king get rid, money grabbing tossers!

Need the General back, sell Perez, I’d rather have someone like Defoe coming off the bench than him at the moment?
