Anderson could return in January window if Porto get Hulk according to BBC text gossip? ⚒⚒⚒.

No. I’ve read that that scenario is not in the loan agreement.

Oh 👍 OK, not aware of the intricacies of the agreement, just a statement on the BBC Gossip text👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

I really hope that Anderson comes good at Porto to put himself in the international shop window. I think Moyse is done with him and we’ve got plenty of attacking mids.

Hi guys and Ed's, hope you're all well, there's been rumours of Real Madrid striker Diaz joining in January possibly on loan, I can't say I know a lot about him, any thoughts guys?

{Ed002's Note - It is true that Real Madrid have the representatives of Mariano Diaz offering him around on ideally a loan to buy option as they continue to clear the decks ready for a summer spending spree. Dias is an out and out striker who had a very good season at Lyon three years ago but is simply not good enough for Real Madrid where the goals return has been well below average. He has rejected loans to several clubs already inclding West Brom and Brighton - West Ham may offer solution but commiting to an obligation to buy may not be wise.}

Thanks for the info Ed, 👍.

Great info 002.

Anything on other strikers being linked such as Dembele, Jovic and Giroud?

{Ed002's Note - Moussa Dembele (S) has not reacted well to being on the bench for a few games and with Tino Kadewere proving his worth Lyon are open to selling. There has been a discussion with a couple of sides already but neither could offer him a starting role. David Moyes is a known fan of the player and might well see him as an option at the right price. Luca Jovic (S) was being offered to Napoli as part of the deal for Ruiz but had a broken heel to recover from first and then Real Madrid stopped looking to major signings this past summer having "delayed" four signings to next summer. Roma (having lost out on their two preferred choices), Inter and Milan will likely fight it out and offer Real Madrid some complicated deal invloving an initial loan. Benfica were interested but opted for Luca Waldschmidt. Milan will want a loan to buy from January - but will want an option rather than an obligation to buy. I don't see West Ham in the loop right now. Olivier Giroud (S) out of contract in the summer and likely available in January. West Ham would offer a good solution as he can stay in London. Crystal Palace offered the same solution but there is no interest. Napoli and Inter have both raised the subject with Chelsea. Lyon and Bordeaux have likely moved on from their prior interest. There was a discussion with Rennes but that will only come in to play if M'Baye Niang were to leave. The lady from Marseille knows him well and may offer a solution but they really want a younger player.}

Oliver Giroud would be a godd back up for Antonio and with our young players coming through i don't see the reason to spend a large amount of money on untried premiership players, learn from our previous mistakes leave them alone and buy what you know that can play in the premiership. Giroud is getting on but he can still do a good job as a back up centre forward and can hold the ball up which is a must for our game. If we can get this season over with good times i hope will come with the crop of youngsters we have coming through.
What do you think lads?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2020 07:32:26
I have always rated Giroud👍Would have liked us to have got him a couple of seasons ago when he was rumoured to be available? Big man that can score goals and hold the ball up as well, yes short term only, but great for me if possible? Could be used as part of a deal if the Rice rumour goes ahead plus a centre back. ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Thx very much, 002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2020 16:35:44
I read that Giroud has been told that he needs game time if he wants to be in the frame to play for France. Being a back up wouldn’t be enough for him for his next gig.

{Ed002's Note - You are right, Giroud would not move to be back up.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2020 08:47:10
My worry is the names being mentioned would want to be guaranteed starters. Dembele for example is upset at a few games on the bench, that could well happen at West Ham and then we have another stroppy person who won't help the squad. I rather we get someone who wants to be at West Ham and isn't known for being upset every time they are benched.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2020 09:51:44
Giroud is a BIG no for me. Age would not make him a wise siginig even if on a free as he would want big wages and take up a spot we need available for a long-term striker. Michail is 30, we do not need an imobile striker at 34 to come into our squad.
He would NOT start ahead of Antonio when fit, and for anyone criticising Haller in our current system Giroud would not do better and would potentially be even less effective given his age is slowing him down even more.
Great player in his day, but there is a reason he is not starting at Chelsea and even Tammy Abrahams is ahead of him. Tammy for me would not get in our team ahead of Antonio. We need someone who can replace Antonio's energy and athleticism.

Dembele now being touted.

- and media talk of a Haller/ Dembele swap.

11 Nov 2020 17:04:59
Markro, What Dembele is it as their are a at least a couple, is it the ex Spurs man, if so he’s 33 Or the Lyon man who is ex Fulham who’s 24? Or are there any more Dembele’s 😂🤣⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2020 17:08:57
which would you take?

11 Nov 2020 18:01:17
Purely on age the ex Fulham now Lyon, 9 year age difference, also apparently a striker, so no brainier for me! 👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 05:44:49
He is ex Celtic and Fulham, apparently a figure of £30m has been mentioned?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 08:20:01
Thanks Stevie, yes I guessed it must be after I looked up the Dembele name. At least he’s experienced UK Football which to me is vital in transfers although it doesn’t guarantee him fitting in! It must be a bloody headache for the managerial team Keeping a squad of millionaires happy, some having larger than life opinions of the themselves!

I can remember seeing John Bond our right back as he was known then, sitting on a crowded District Line train with a big Kit Bag on the floor after a game, it was like seeing your idol in front of you, I was starstruck, but that was possibly In the late ‘50’s to early 60’s, great full back his day and loyal man, made 444 first team appearances🤣 ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 13:58:26
I posted on here a while ago, that I really do not like any of our squad being selected for any International games due to the possibility of injury for upcoming PL games. Seen today Gomez apparently could be out for the rest of the season, little wonder some Managers identify some injury a week or so before and withdraw them from the squad!

The classic example for us was Dean Ashton severely injured in a practice session, thanks to a tackle from Wright-Phillips that finished his career, also more recently Lanzini! So let’s all hope ours come back unscathed? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2020 15:50:23
PS to above, We have both our No1 and No2 on International duties👎👎⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2020 08:26:55
I think with Tarkowski refusing to sign a new contract, that a deal will be done if the Rice rumour with Chelsea becomes reality! The Rice rumour and ex Chelsea connection is to strong not to happen? Providing we can come out of it with at least enough to buy a class centre back to replace Dec and another up front to help Ant and co out, I think that will be as good as we can hope unless we off load Haller as well? ⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Nov 2020 16:22:39
I've seen we're about to sign Frederick Alves, a 20 year old centre back, will come into affect from January, anything on this Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I cannot help. My notes say that Arminia Bielefeld and Emmen looked at Frederick Alves.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Nov 2020 22:17:23
Apparently he’s in London with a medical booked.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Nov 2020 08:10:53
Stevie, no nothing about most players abroad unless well known, looked at his profile and for his age age and experience, looks worth taking a chance for a £1.2m fee, unless others start looking and it increases the fee? Don’t like it when it’s common knowledge 2 months before it happens. ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

So I’ve been reading that Moyse’s new “dilemma” is the match day 18 v City.

Haller has recovered from a knock and with Benrahma must been included.

If all fit, Moyse is likely to start the same XI.

So who misses out?

It seems odd that you need to officially submit your squad (up to 25) for the season, but only name 18 for match day.

Is there any reason why it’s limited to 18?

Why can’t subs be chosen from your full squad?

Eds? Is it just tradition?

{Ed002's Note - Until the mid 60s there were no subs allowed. Then you could name one and then it went to two, three and then five. Recently, to finish last season, it was expanded but the Premier League clubs voted against it for this season when it was offered up - the argument being that it would favour those sides with stronger squads (typically the higher-profile sides). However, what I do expect to happen moving forward is (a) a push to lower the maximum number on non Home Grown players from 17 to perhaps 12 or 13, (b) an increase in the number of "Club Developed" (having been with the club for a year before turning 19) players which currently only impacts UEFA competition, and (eventually) (c) changing to matchday squad such that a minimum number of Home Grown players must start the game (say four), and a minimum number of Club Developed players (say four again) need to be in the match day squad. There are already rules surrounding this in other countries.}

Markro, yes very difficult section for DM after recent gutsy performances? For me Haller doesn’t warrant any selection anywhere, maybe controversial to say so to some punters, but his contributions have been nil for me!

Whether he will start Benhrama against City or not is difficult, but I think it will be Fornals who starts but will be the one to be replaced either way which will be unfortunate, unless he is having a atinker! Some may possibly say Snoddy should make way on the bench, but he always grafts and makes some contribution, certainly Yarmo must be in there to call on? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2020 17:51:02
All decent points (except about Haller 😂) .

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 08:33:24
Markro, sorry mate😂🤣Can’t get my head around when it when I feel he cannot adapt up front and at least look as if he is putting some effort and enthusiasm into a game, I cannot accept a whole team system should be changed to suit one player! Enough of Haller🤣Really looking To the 12.30 KO, again really interesting now the whole team is really pulling together and grafting for each other! Just hope no niggling injury problems especially arguably against one of the Worlds best teams! ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 09:58:58
i too don't think Haller is good enough to disrupt a team that is pulling together. He has a lot of talent and is a decent footballer but he doesn't do enough work, i can't see him making the subs bench let alone starting a game.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 11:45:05
Haller I think is a good player, but a good player that doesn't at all fit into moyes system, a system that has been doing well in last 3 games can't see at all how he fits in except as sub in last 15 mins.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 11:50:25
Just seen the line up no Benrahma anywhere🤔⚒⚒⚒ Bideford our favourite Haller is on the bench🤣Markro and a few others will be pleased Haller is there! ⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Oct 2020 02:24:35
Also that great forward OZIL scored 33 goals in 184 apps at 0.18 per game and your slagging HALLER off yeah right no wonder you tried the assists stat ed your so transparent I can nearly see you what a great charity giver that OZIL was. COYI.

Phil Jones in January anyone?

20 Oct 2020 11:37:46
Nope, to clumsy and erratic for me, if his on a free and willing to pay as you play but for every yellow card or foul conceded he gets fined, it would be a sensible move as well be in credit after each match.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 11:51:03
I’ve seen that we would have to pay £20m for him, no chance, we can do better than that.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 13:25:04
Left out of PL squad too -- clearly a reason he's been (r) ejected.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 19:15:41
Ed’s. given that premier league squads have now been submitted, does that mean free agents would need to wait until January before they could make a premier league appearance (if they were signed), or could they be added to the premier league squad if there is space?

{Ed002's Note - If there is space in the squad it is possible to add free agents at any time (assuming they were free agents at some point during the last transfer window.) So West Ham could sign and play Samir Nasri if they have space.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 21:33:34
Thanks Ed.

Yeah I don’t think any West Ham fan would take Nasri back. Haha.

{Ed002's Note -Balotelli?}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Oct 2020 06:27:39
What had you heard Ed? Haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Oct 2020 09:37:01
Any decent strikers Ed on as free agents?, thinking about it that question basically contradicts itself lol.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think West Ham are looking but there are folks like Mario Mandzukic, Mario Balotelli, Alexandre Pato and Daniel Sturridge who are looking for clubs.}

Agree0 Disagree0

It's done I've seen him in the shirt ⚒.

Didn’t think it would drag on without some sort of positive outcome, well pleased as my son in law who follows Forest in the Championship, thinks Benrahma was the most exciting forward in the league last season scoring some great goals! Hope he follows it on👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

Now then lads, dunno if it's done or what but I've just read at 19:20 that he has signed on lan with a few to buy at the end with a fee of £25m 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.
