Seeing reports Arnie won't be starting due to transfer "speculation"

Listen, I love the guy, absolutely adore him, but you're 29 years old. Either come out and say look boys, we've had a good run and I love the club, but I need to move in the interest of my wife and 2 daughters and earn the money in China (if we were all offered double our current salary, we'd all move, its the way the works works)

Or come out and squash the bull that your browser keeps spouting and commit to the club.

This. "oh I think it's best I don't be named in the squad because of speculation" is shocking. We all know players have the power these days. Address the rumours Arnie and give us an answer. Either way, if you do it the correct way, and you want to move to China to earn the money for your family, I'd like to think the majorly of legit West Ham fans would thank you for your service and the memories and wish you all the best in the future.

Please just go about it the right way.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 03:51:39
I think you have your answer. He wants out if he is suggesting he don't be named because of speculation, otherwise the speculation would mean nothing to him. Not that bothered if he goes if we get the right price.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 09:08:23
The ONLY occasions when he should not be available for the match day squad are injury, or if you are not selected.

Anything else should be breach of contract.

Naive, I know, but that’s how it should be.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 11:34:00
Just seen he’s playing.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 11:35:16
Well he has been named.

5.) 12 Jan 2019 12:02:55
I hope he scores a few and settles down, or scores a hatful and inflates his price if he really wants out.

6.) 13 Jan 2019 08:27:05
Bit of a waste of space wasn't he? Played like a star player on FM who wants a new contract.

7.) 13 Jan 2019 19:55:08
ARNIE performance yesterday spoke volumes of the man behind the mask he's a self centred player we really don't need at our football club and grateful I am of his performances this season it's him who should be grate ful as the club who was willing to take a chance on him when others wouldn't have done and rescuing from a relegation (happened) threatened club and turning him into a C/ F of a high standard and we should be doing EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE TOLD TO DO SO BY NOT HIM BUT HIS BROTHER yeah righty oh my old China it doesn't work like that I'd let him rot in the stiffs but then we are doing ourselves out of a lot of money and we cannot afford such luxurys so just get the deal done as quick as possible and move on . COYI.



10 Jan 2019 19:15:36
The rumour that Pep wants Rice worries me more than the Arnie rumours.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 10:14:12
I called this a while ago! . If Pep comes in i don´t see how Rice could turn it down! . let's be honest he´s going to win pretty much f all with us and a good chance of winning everything with Man City plus he´d be on a min 100k pw straight off the bat! . and for the club a 50-60m bid i think they would accept that!

2.) 11 Jan 2019 10:31:53
Can only hope he decides to stay a year or 2 more with us to increase his experience before he heads off.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 03:54:23
I recall suggesting previously that he wouldn't stay his whole career and some disagreed with my comment. No players for life anymore and even less likely if your not a Champions League team. Glad I grew up in the era of Trevor Brooking and Billy Bonds, my son supports West Ham but his favourite player is Lionel Messi. Don't think he would ever get a West Ham players number on his back sadly.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 09:11:29
MP should tell him now that he is captain next year.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 20:02:42
A move to city isn't the right move for RICE yet but in two years it probably is I remember a young SCOT PARKER who I knew quite well through his father mickey moving to CHELSEA and not getting a game now I know he only moved to triple his earnings and money was the only reason he moved so if I was west ham I'd say gives us your all for 2-3 years and we will broker a big move for you well something along those lines and help you basically you scratch our backs and vice versa. COYI.

Speaking to someone who knows Shelvey's dad - he's saying it's practically a done deal? Any news on this mike?


1.) 05 Jan 2019 11:34:08
It does seem this swap deal rumour involving Carroll is getting stronger.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 12:01:53
IT would be a FANTASTIC deal for WH, WHOEVER would sanction this deal at. NEWCASTLE. Should be taken straight to a Mental House Institution, The only way this could happen is a DELAYED payment for Shelvey until the summer, THEN it’s possible but a straight swap without money would belike WH winning the lottery. IRONMIKE.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 12:10:23
I think that would be a great deal
I like shelvey he could turn out to be our next noble.

4.) 11 Jan 2019 22:01:45
I really can't jump on the SHELVEY bandwagon I've seen him loads of times and he's hardly a game changer if we are going to IMPROVE we have to aim higher than SHELVEY as I think we should and could aim a little higher than him also his liking for a card worries me I'd steer clear even if I'm desperate to get rid of Billy the fish. COYI.



31 Jul 2018 18:57:02
Not sure if anyone else agrees, but the more I watch Snodgrass, the more I'm starting to really like him. nice little assist just now for Martinez.

I honestly think he'll be a very good squad player this season, i'd definitely look to keep hold of him!


1.) 31 Jul 2018 19:35:25
It seems as if MP might agree with you, TK.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 20:52:57
Too slow so can't get past anybody.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 22:24:28
I agree, but he isn't the only player who lacks the pace to take players on, Noble can't either. The key point is whether they can adapt to Pellegrini's one touch football, because if they need too much time on the ball and if their movement off the ball is poor they are going to be a liability. time will tell. There are a few positions, no doubt Pellegrini would like to improve but the finances restict him. I think there will be a few coming and going before the window closes. Hopefully we will see a quality midfielder or two come in and a striker.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 23:02:40
Spot on HAMMERSFAN regarding both devoud of any pace and if you play in midfield you can't be pedestrian. COYI.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 00:20:48
Of course a midfielder can be slow - Pirlo rated as one of the greatest ever and he was very slow! Great player though.
Noble plays fantastic passes as does Snodgrass- Pelle knows his stuff, trust him.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 12:11:11
Pirlo was a free role and a one off noble is great now i know that glen.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 12:11:38
Pirlo wasnt asked to track back.



11 Jul 2018 13:48:35
Welcome Andriy ⚒ - Balbuena next to come!

Hopefully this time next week we will be welcoming Anderson!

I honestly think, if we hold onto Obiang, him and Wilshere will be strong in the centre of the park, and with the new attaching and defensive acquisitions (and goalkeeper) and with effectively a new signing in January (Lanzini) this could be an extremely promising campaign!


1.) 11 Jul 2018 14:16:32
Mike and Ed’s. I’ve seen reports that .................

Absolute embarrassing

Defensively we are SHOCKING. Absolutely shambolic at the back. Balbuena getting injured has thrown our season, because Ogbonna is ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS. Masuaku has shown us again why he isn't a defender, another horror show from him.

Attacking wise - toothless, Anderson too quiet, Antonio the only bloke who looks like he's trying.

Can't take it away from them as wolves are a good side, slick passing, fantastic movement, clinical infront of goal and solid at the back (everything we're not)



1.) 29 Jan 2019 22:24:27
It's ironic that an ALARM CLOCK came between a player scoring 2 against us when he could have been scoring for us. COYI.



29 Jan 2019 20:37:23
Is anyone else watching the game? Every single chance wolves have had has come from Masuaku making a mistake/ giving the ball away/ or just being completely oblivious to everything that's going on around him.

He's absolutely shocking at defending, there must be another option. I'd prefer Zaba at left back and fredericks at right back. Anything must be better than what is currently happening.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 20:47:31
Got it on FotMob app “live ticker” poor mans commentary🤣😂 but not on National Radio but better than nothing👍Also Mauaku lucky not to give a penalty away, seems Ref was lenient apparently👍⚒⚒⚒ Arnies name hasn’t even been mentioned, it seems he’s been anonymous!

2.) 29 Jan 2019 20:48:54
Terrible, words cannot describe how poor he is at defending.
On the rumours page i asked if anyone had stats on our average goals conceded per game with him and without him, anyone seen anything?

3.) 29 Jan 2019 21:32:19
Never mind Masuaku, apart from fabby in goal absolutely disgusting to watch, haven’t won a header in 50/ 50 challenges, woeful, not one shot from us. We do not deserve 7th spot, what has actually happened to our team from four or five games ago, just crap. Wolves are a far better team in every sense of the word, 7 goals leaked in 2 games. He’s using the same players all the time starting or subbing, it is not working so get it sorted. I’m getting sick of watching this rubbish.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 21:41:36
Why does he keep playing mstsuaku.

5.) 29 Jan 2019 21:56:58
Agree with all above we are awful. Created nothing and defended poorly, I don't like it when we play 442 to easily dominated it doesn't suit the players we have available.

Performances as of late have been woeful. Looks like arnautovic potentially bad injury really can't wait to see balbuena lanzini back. Need nasri and cresswell back too masuaku with ogbonna is just a car crash.

The non existence of creativity tonight was shocking would understand if we were defending in numbers but we weren't.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 21:36:22
I turned the game off. Wolves were giving us a footballing lesson. Masuaku in two games on the bounce has failed to make a successful tackle or stop a cross going in. Anderson walking around the pitch and absent from the game in the most part, zero penetration, no commitment from any player relating to a forward pass, slow., ponderous and devoid of any ideas. I’m so angry that I’m feeling sick to my stomach. We can’t blame the owners now. it’s lacklustre performances from players . I’ve had it to my eyeballs with this spineless lot. Chops! Apart from Antonio who’s always busting a gut.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 22:28:18
The thing is the world and his wife but not MP can see that MASUAKU was transferred to playing left mid by MOYES as he can't defend so I feel a little sorry for MASUAKU . COYI.



20 Jan 2019 15:15:25
Is there any truth in the reasoning behind Arnie wanting to move to China is due to him being in huge amounts of debt due to poor investments by him and his brother on his behalf?

If so, I personally don't hate Arnie, he didn't pull out of the squad, it was Pelle's decision to drop him because of what's happening. He was also stated as training hard and remaining professional.

I honestly think he's obviously not the smartest bloke, and his brother has basically misguided him and managed him poorly with bad intentions. I think, as he's under contract with us, West Ham should offer him counselling and support to get himself out of this debt. Show some humanity gents, he's a human being at the end of the day.

Carroll on the other hand, he's a donkey, get him out!


1.) 20 Jan 2019 20:00:18
If he has genuine psychological issues I would object to him getting counselling but financial issues on the money he is on. Please!
He only has himself to blame. He was great the second half of last season but it seems if he is not the top man at the club he throws his toys out the pram like a petulant child.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 11:11:49
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?



19 Jan 2019 17:14:32
Probably doesn't need to be said, but I'll say it anyway. Carroll is absolutely garbage.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 22:10:47
Trouble is the team don’t play the way a striker like Carroll operates. Long ball or crosses is what he needs and we have moved on with short passes and movement. But worse he can’t even hold the ball up very well.



02 Jan 2019 18:52:21
Carroll starting up front with Arnie. lord knows how this will turn out.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 19:18:54
- or how long Carroll will last 😳.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 19:32:42
Strange one this. IRONMIKE.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 20:58:30
dont worry he's gone off with an injury haha.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 21:26:48
What brilliant super subs by Pelle - Antonio can’t be controlled and Noble with a lovely ball in for Markos first goal. Very good management from the boss.

Hopefully we can get the 3rd and win.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 21:41:40
Agree great subs except Perez, he is a waste of a shirt in my opinion he is sorty to say it, CRAP.
Real shame we didn’t finish them off but good come back all the same but other results went for us so 3 points would have been ideal

6.) 02 Jan 2019 22:28:00
Perez means we are playing with 10 men a lot. Just doesn’t have the passion, confidence or work rate it appears.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 22:28:26
For me I think that’s the end of Carol and Perez
neither bring anything to the team, ship both
out if we can and get a decent striker.

I agree with Warrington - i'd like to avoid getting into Europe this season, if you don't have the squad for it, it really can break a team. Look what happened to Burnley.

Get as many deals in place for the summer for the players that Pelle wants, and ship out the people he doesn't. I really think Arnie will stay, i believe his brother is fabricating these stories to get Arnie a new contract in the summer and to be our highest earner. Imagine being Arnie, single handedly winning certain games for us, and having to sit in a changing room with clowns like Carroll (and Chicharito to a certain extent) who do the absolute minimum and earn the same money.

The defence definitely needs suring up - that is the absolute priority in Summer, LB and RB. We are scoring goals, so the boys up front are playing their part. Some legs in midfield wouldn't go a miss either!

If he leaves in the summer fair play to him - but he needs to see the season out.

Absolutely love the bloke though, so will be gutted!

We were creating chances with a lot of possession around the area but having Carroll in the side is counter productive. He literally doesn’t move, so no matter how much build up play you do. you won’t achieve anything with him. I’d rather have seen silva start up front, lots of pace and will run his socks off and fit into our style of play!

That chance Carroll missed was an absolute howler. Shocking performance from him. Get him out.

I really felt Pérez has a shocking game today. Nothing he did went right. no control, no first touch, I don’t think he found one team mate with any of his passes. he just seemed to get in Arnie’s way.

We need Balbuena back to get that solidarity at the back again. Diop doesn’t look the same player next to Ogbonna.
