Re: Oficial January Transfer Window Thread

7 DAYS LEFT...And nothing! I am not surprised in the least. Thing is,if we'd had all our targets sorted by Dec 31st,we may still be 4th or even 3rd? Like last year,when we just needed one or two extra players to just push us on,we didn't bother. These last 2 seasons could be our very last to have t...

Re: Oficial January Transfer Window Thread

Transfer rumours,an oldie..We are apparently negotiating a loan deal with option to buy. No chance, they want the money up front, personally I think he'd be a problem in the future. ( Rehashed story me thinks) Aaron Ramsey, No thanks and not likely to happen, building a squad not trying to fill it ...

Re: Remaining games

I used to do this in battle against relegations in my "West Ham League and Records" spreadsheet that I spend umpteen years with points achieved per games (up to 38 games), fixture and results, aggregated scored per team (home and away for example West Ham lost 3-1 to Man Utd in both fixtu...

Re: Thank you Chelsea

Unfortunately I think you're grasping at straws a bit. Spuds are only a point behind us and have 3 games in hand - Brighton and Burnley away and Le Arse at home. Shit as they are they'll probably get 4 pts minimum from that lot which does us no favours, especially considering managements reticence ...

Re: Time we were forward thinking for the first time ever and sack Moyes

The actual transfer was £17M. The inaccuarte £30M quoted is reliant on add-ins which are unlikely to be met. Player wages are not included in amortization as they sit elsewhere on the balance sheet. Thought it was around £26m plus £8m in add-ons . You could well be right - I got the £17M from a Gon...

Re: Oficial January Transfer Window Thread

I would say West Ham desperately need Jesse Lingard in the same way they desperately missed Payet when he departed. Having a major influencer who surges forward,dragging all the others with him is exactly what has been missing. Antonip played a couple of games where he offered the promise of a ramp...

Re: Time we were forward thinking for the first time ever and sack Moyes

The signing of Vlasic went from £30m to £40m in 2 posts. That’s inflation for you.😂😂 The £40 million I decided to include wages Try harder Mr Try Hard. The actual transfer was £17M. The inaccuarte £30M quoted is reliant on add-ins which are unlikely to be met. Player wages are not included in amort...

Re: Oficial January Transfer Window Thread

Why do we even need Lingard ( or why did Moyes bring in Vlasic ? ) when we have Lanzini and Fornals , if anything other then a striker , Left Back and probably a CB now are required it's got to be an out and out winger , because it doesn't look like Okoflex is going to get a chance anytime soon . W...

Re: Man Utd vs West Ham Utd Official Match Thread

DM obviously persuaded himself that a point would be sufficient and lost the game with the last opposition kick. Effectively the first team squad has a 14 day break until Feb 08. The BBC televised FA cup game can be completed with fringe players, Kral,Noble, Yarmolenko,OkoFlex etc. And he either get...
