West Ham are in talks to sign 28 year old Slavia Prague right-back Vladimir Coufal . Is this what Moyes classes as young and hungry ? .

Recommended by Soucek,fine by me.
Really ? you cannot be serious , and was Lukas Masopust the right sided midfielder also recommended by Soucek as well ? Carry on and we will have the whole Slavia Prague team starting for us .

West Ham boss David Moyes could yet make a late swoop for Queens Park Rangers left-back Ryan Manning.

I think Snoddy is a perfectly good squad player and should be ahead of certain players every time. 2019-20 season: 5 assists (only Fornals had as many) 5 goals (only 2 players had more Antonio and Haller ) plus several chances created from very few opportunities. I'm afraid he is one of the players that some criticize to deflect blame from others but the stats show otherwise and they back up what I see. Hard facts are all that matter in this league.
Ok fair comment , but when has he done it in the league of late ?
Bit difficult when you don't get picked. Last time he played in league was as a sub beginning of March.

Blimey this one was doing the rounds 2 months ago .

That is one hell of a dither...
Thought that was Lukas Masopust the Right-sided midfielder .
Him as well Clay , him as well . Though that one hasn’t been resurrected yet .
Bring back Jonathon !

Just do not see a position for him in the formation Moyes played against Wolves , and its not on the wing , so that only leaves a formation where we play a AM or do you see him as a CM . Really that could only happen against teams with no pace in midfield , now if Sully had come out and said we had 8 CAM he may well have been right , and not the ridiculous statement that we had 8 wingers .

Well I know someone who is a lot slower , doesn't score or create chances and gets picked in midfield so he would certainly be an improvement in that respect. He has come off the bench and provided good crosses in the past. My criticism of him would be that he is sometimes a bit too aggressive when tackling and mistimes a tackle and gives away a free kick in a dangerous position. But as a squad player I find him ok and is more likely than a lot coming off the bench to provide a good cross or even score himself.

West Ham have decided not to pursue an option to sign Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
According to a source close to the club, the West Ham hierarchy have decided the Chelsea man is too expensive to take on loan when the priority is defenders.

At least we got out of that one it appears .
