Just read a rumour that Bournemouth and palace looking to try and buy Declan rice, hope not he's the best young player we have need to get the lad contracted up to stop the sharks circling, hope this isn't true! Any truth in it mike or Ed?

Made up story IRONMIKE.

Welcome Diop, great signing in my opinion, gutted we didn't go for Maddison, 22m for a young top English player is a steal, missed a trick there like. However jack Wilshire is fit and was playing well towards end of season, get him fighting fit and sharp and he would be and is a force, we should definitely go for him, I know people will say he's had injuries but any player can be struck down with injuries, a lot of my mates are arsenal fans and they are gutted he is not staying because they know how good he can be. The powers that be get this deal done please, he's still only 26.
Any thoughts gents?

Follow the signings of Fredericks and Diop with Fabianski and Mawson and I think defensively we are looking pretty good.

If then pick up Anderson from Lazio and Wilshere on a free we would be improving our midfield. I personally think Wilshere is worth the chance as a free signing.

I also don’t know why we aren’t all over this Sporting Lisbon fiasco. They have a few players that have been granted permission by the Portuguese courts to terminate their contract who would be great additions to our squad.

William Carvalho (who we supposedly offered £30 million for last summer) would add steel to our defensive midfield role.

Bruno Fernandes is a very good player, very good on the ball, good movement, can play a pass and scores from midfield.

Gelson Martinez is a quality winger, him and Anderson on the wings would be full of tricks, pace, assists and goals.

Bas Dost upfront is a huge upgrade on Carroll, potent finisher, good in the air.

I personally we be all over them. Give them decent sign on fees instead of paying transfer fees and we have significantly improved a number of positions throughout the starting 11.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 08:51:45
I mentioned these players in a post yesterday mate, so 100% agree. All would be an improvement on what we have.!



19 Feb 2018 21:50:32
Wow, let's buy Will Grigg, that bloke is like the song says. ON FIRE.




19 Feb 2018 20:59:06
IRONMIKE, any news at all, it's been a bit quiet with our club!

Hi guys read an interview with Declan rice last night about his international dilemma, the kid seems to be really struggling with his decision, it's a lot for a19 old to have especially with millions of fans wanting it either way. One he was saying was about West Ham, how he loves it here the fans the club everything, when asked about a contract his words were I only want to sign for West Ham this is where I want to be and that's that. For god sake THE BOARD sort it out, non of this Nasri crap, put that to bed right away we don't want another old bum on the books. When will they see sense, Nasri would be a shockingly bad signing, start closer home before the window opens and make the future priority, get these deals done, Nasri has no right to demand that much, I wouldn't pay him what I used to get in the Sunday league games back home when I was 14, a bag of seebrook crisps and a pint of coke. COYI.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 13:53:16
Whitby. 👍👍👍 ⚒⚒⚒⚒ COYI.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 17:51:48
This boy needs to be looked after by the club. especially after those comments.



31 Oct 2018 21:53:48
Well, was like we had 10 men after 55mins, Antonio is like a slug, and he's so greedy in front of goal it's unbelievable. Rice Diop and Grady had a great game we need to keep hold of those three, for me snodgrass is showing the reason why he was bought, worked hard tonight when he came on. But to be fair I must say I have always liked sonny, great player.




29 Oct 2018 06:34:41
Dunno if any of you have seen but twice now in four day it's been in sky papertalk that PSG are looking at putting in a 50 million pound bid, the vultures are circling already, really hope this isn't true.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 07:59:58
Hi Whiby👋, yeah seen that about Diop as well, a bit ominous for his derparture as it’s a massive French club and of course he is French, so, the writings on the wall maybe! Yes we’ll make a huge profit, but we’d all rather keep a future world class player every time! We have to accept with foreign imports especially that show outstanding ability that we will only be a feeder club whilst struggling in the Premiership👎⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 29 Oct 2018 15:01:20
Hi chaps, Man Utd are sniffing round him as well, what annoys me is its teams like West Ham that buy these relatively unknown players then turn them into world class players for the so called big teams to snatch them off of us, why don't the so called big teams buy them in the first place, the league is all ways going to look the same with the smaller teams bringing these players through for the likes of Utd,

3.) 29 Oct 2018 15:15:53
Stevie, really makes you angry, but to be honest we’ve done plenty of enticing potential exciting rising stars off smaller clubs in the past haven’t we? I really do feel though that is should be made more of an even playing ground in the Premiership regarding the huge fees and wages clubs should pay, goodness knows what the answer is but there must be one?

4.) 29 Oct 2018 21:33:30
Am I missing the point as of this morning DIOP was still a WHUFC player don't believe everything you read or hear from the press 2 seasons ago CHELSEA were apparently after CRESSWELL and CARROLL enough said, I'm not trying to be judgemental but c'mon lads it won't happen not in a million years and I'll hold my hands up if it does. COYI.

5.) 29 Oct 2018 22:05:05
If they are both serious UTD and PSG I'd put a £100 million price tag see how serious they are then because that's how much he'd be valued at if he was playing for a bigger club he's 23 so has got his best years ahead of him about 8-10 years if he looks after himself which foreign players do and before people say well he doesn't play for a bigger club I can't see what difference that has my views on this is I'll tell you what we will offer £45 million because he plays for West ham and we would probably fall for it, In today's market and I'm serious I think DIOP is worth £70 million with normal progress as he's still a bit raw and inexperienced and BALBUENA more complete and experienced at £40 million IMO that's how high I rate them both as top draw C/ B are as rare as hen's teeth and a valuable commodity I hope they both stay as we should build a team around those two and FABIANSKI i admit when we were interested i wasn't a fan when he was at ARSENAL but thought he'd gone downhill but what a keeper he his and was so unlcky as that shot was right down his throat and would have saved that comfortabley but NOBLE cost us that game as I hunk we would have extended our lead but we will never know enough of my fabrication. COYI.

6.) 31 Oct 2018 08:28:28
Agree whorya. If players like evans was valued at 30 odd mil then these 2 players have got to be valued above 60. I wouldn't take anything if a bid came in. wouldn't get a replacement for them.

7.) 31 Oct 2018 12:01:31
Spot on Dave. COYI.

8.) 31 Oct 2018 14:04:27
Agree, Diop is MINIMUM £60m if he continues this form in prem. Balbuena similar at £40m.



21 Aug 2018 06:54:17
Hi lads, I hope like you are all saying gives these couple of young lads Silva and Diop a go, think that's there names because al be honest not heard of them until they arrived same as pretty much all the others except Wilshire. I agree noble and Wilshire army meant to be in the same team, not starting, I've always liked noble for years but like us all he's getting slower so I think he should be on the bench now, he can still do it but not for 90 mins and that's not a bad thing after all. These lads need time to gel it's true but I hope it's sooner rather than later otherwise MP will be gone, but let's face it he needs to change stuff tactics wise, I hope is vision becomes clear to us all at some point, but personally I didn't see it at the stadium on Saturday and neither did a lot of others. I didn't enjoy it, sounded like we should have gone over to the Olympic park to that modern rave they sounded like they were having a great time lol, hopefully our fortunes turn, and I would love it to be at arsenal, that would help no end, but I feel if we play the high line like we r with Ogbonna and Balbuena we r doomed, Masuaku needs pushing forward bring in Cresswell. Take out noble bring in obiang or move Anderson in as a free role seeing as tho that's what he did Saturday anyway, here I'm no tactician and I think a lot of u will be saying no that's stupid but surely anything is better, or grow some balls MP and play the two young lads that u paid a lot of money for. I also like oxford, if he gets his big head out of his ass he could be so special for us. Hope this hasn't ruined your dinner breaks reading this essay lol.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 11:23:53
Morning Whitby was wondering where you had got too after Saturdays debacle. lol

Think we are all agreed we love Noble but he's that time in his career when he needs to take a back seat and give some help to the younger guys who are up and coming

Remember Kevin Nolan we all new that he was no longer up for the pace 18 months before the end. I'd hate to see Noble be remembered in the same way after all his time at West Ham

Times change and we all have to move on I'm just hoping all the new signings can gel and play as a team.

2.) 21 Aug 2018 12:22:48
I'm in Amsterdam so could only listen live and see MOTD, but everyone said the same. 2 slow sideways passers in CM, no steel. In addition they really slated Snodgrass due to lack of pace when in a wide role and Arthur for his defensive frailties. If us mere mortals can see this, I do hope it's just MP learning and the new players learning and gelling. You can use Fredericks and Arthur with 3 CB's but both too open with a back 4, especially if no CDM. I know MP favours 442 or 4231 but I do get the feeling that 3/ 5 at the back suits squad the best, just not sure he's comfortable with that formation. 5-1-3-1 really seems to be the best with our squad, as long a the 1 is a CDM
Obiang/ Sanchez/ Rice

3.) 21 Aug 2018 12:59:56
Hi mercerl, I returned back up north to sunny Whitby on Sunday morning with a bit of a hangover from drowning my first home game sorrows in drink.
I agree about noble, I’m not saying he’s rubbish or past it I believe he can still do a job but as a back up, sub from the bench for last 15 or 20. But I think we will be right, but realisticly, the longer it takes to sort, people can kiss goodbye to 8th place, maybe he’s thinking of slowly getting it sorted for next year or a progression thing but personally I would like a bit more steel and get it done now.

4.) 23 Aug 2018 01:25:09
I AGREE WHITBY about NOBLE as twelth man bringing on the drinks sorry mate wrong game or to cut the ORANGES at half time sorry wrong standard but that's how good he is now i'm sorry to say. COYI.



18 Aug 2018 08:08:52
Traveling down to London from Whitby, 1st home game here we come, first game really (let's pretend Liverpool didn't happen lol) hope we get the win and look more solid, Look forward to singing along with the rest of you guys.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 10:53:59
Whitby I admire you and all the travelling fans for your wonderful dedication, the money you all spend on travel alone is very expensive depending on your mode of transport? I find the travel now quite tiring especially if we have lost or played s—- it makes the journey home seem twice as long😂so my watching the ⚒ now is very selective now i’m into old age😂 but will listen to see if I can get a live radio commentary and will def watch MOTD tonight. Good luck to all you die hard fans for the game today, will be with you in mind and spirit ⚒⚒⚒COYI.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 11:21:07
I’m on my way to the game hope we win but Bournemouth won’t be an easy game. Hopefully we might have a bit more pace and energy COYI.

This is getting ridiculous now, all the fans were against the board, so they wised up, brought in a good manager and spent a bit a money to get us on side, we have all sat and watched rice develop, watched him shine, and now we are sitting watching the vultures circle because our board have gone back over again because they have paid stupid wages to others, so we will all sit here now powerless to what is happening, wishing that they would just give the kid a good deal and tie him down. I for one will so peeeeed off if we lose him and I think that will be me done, it will be heartbreaking to see the be taken away from us to rot in a so called bigger clubs reserves or bench, because that is what will happen, even though he is far to good for that. Please WH board do the right thing, these kids are the future, u wanted another MR WESTHAM well their he is bold as brass, make this happen for him and for us.

Hi mike was the situation with rice and this contract, sky sports saying the board have offered him one final contract. Is this true? Any news please 👍🏻.

Hi all, just read on sky sports evening papers that Declan rice has turned down a contract worth 20k every time he plays dunno how much truth is in it as it is the papers and sky. But I really hope it’s not true, the board need to make a statement and nail this kids contract down because quite simply, he is the future and he is class. Can you shed any light mike please?

Weird that Stevie, I have put that same bet on alread with the added Chelsea 1st half West Ham full time with Nobel and Yarmolenko to score anytime. 750-1, cheeky pound on it lol, what a day it would be if this came.

Ur not negative Warrington, just honest, we are all gutted and down, but I think all have been sucked in by MP’ premier league win, from board to fans, me included I guess. But let’s face it he had a very good squad at city. For me, I would love to get Rafa, he’s honest and seems to be gent and as loyal as they come, getting treated like a baked bean by Ashley, the toon fans love him, but don’t think he will leave, he would have to be pushed in my opinion. As regards of our signings, surely they can only get better u see MP or someone else, so again do me Rafa all the way but that’s my opinion I’m sure others disagree. Just hope we sort our rubbish out.

First of all thanks mike for all the info through the transfer window. Weather it’s heart or head I say 7th or 8th, hopefully the higher of the two, but I would be happy with top ten, as the game on Sunday, Liverpool imo, will be up there I reckon they will push city all the way, maybe even be their season, however now is the time to play them it’s a level playing field in a way, I think either 2-1 Liverpool or a sneaky draw, would love to be wrong and see the hammers set their stall out, either way come on u irons.
