Maiga is a very good player. I doubt we will get him, but it is quite ridiculous that he is priced lower than 32 year old
Grant Holt.

Not risking the BOTD today..........

Do you think the management will lay on a bus to take all these ageing players we're being linked with to collect their pensions on a Monday morning? :?

Getting all these older players is asking for an injury crisis. Perhaps we can put in a bid for Kieran?

A bit concerning all these 30+ players we're being linked to but there is still a part of me that would love to see Seedorf in a West Ham shirt.
