Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Still on a transfer topic..when was the last few transfers that we bought and made a big profit on when we sold them. For a mid table club, we're rarely going to make a profit on anyone we actually want to sell. The difference is that we got in situations where a 34M player in Anderson couldnt even...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Pretty concerning that we're looking at another season with pretty much zero depth. So its 5 players in (not counting Areola as he was here last year): Aguerd, Downes, Cornet, Scamaccia, Coventry And 7 players out (all who were first team squad members and made 10+ appearances): Yarmo, Fredericks, M...

Re: Your top 5 favourite WHU players in the Premier League era

If there was a list of players for whom I had an unspoken wish to not play for the club, this one would top it. Always seemed to hide when the going got tough (which, as you note, reference Noble, was fairly often during those days). Etherington helped get us out of the champ and was a huge part of...

The Striker Situation, already a laughing stock they really need to get this sorted.

Re: Sonny Perkins

Would you consider Rio a product of our academy? He joined when he was 14. Scholes from Man U? Started training with them at 14. Not every player joins a club out of nappies and spends their entire development there. Why 10 years? Extend that to 15 and you've also got Tomkins and Collison. I'm not ...

Re: Your top 5 favourite WHU players in the Premier League era

Why isn’t everyone picking Noble???? Because he was never an especially exciting player who largely appeared for us during an absolutely turgid run for the club, characterized by woeful managers, incompetent ownership and two relegations. Anyway, for me it's Scott Parker - who was Declan Rice meets...

West Ham haven't signed a player for what, 5 day's?

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

One more thought on Danjuma. We should be WAY more suspicious at why Villarreal are so desperate to sell. They'd apparently already lined up the replacement in Umar Sadiq. It's a guy that had ONE good season at the top level who they're extremely happy to turn a profit on. Anyway, I'm delighted if L...

I mean he could rock up at Arsenal, Spurs or Chelsea and get £100k +
No but I'm glad we're sticking to our guns on what we think is appropriate - not letting ourselves be played by an agent looking to use us to get an offer from a bigger club

Those clubs have money to burn though and both did it at note sustained periods than just one season in La Liga.

35M for us is a huge part of our transfer budget

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Absolutely concerned by Danjuma. Why are we buying another player who couldn't cut it previously in the Prem for a massive inflated fee after a single good season? This just sounds like Vlasic 2.0. or even Benrahma 2.0 When we desperately need depth, I don't understand why we're taking huge swings o...

BNWT West Ham Khaki Tee - Size Small

I was bought this the other Xmas and it's a little small for me - never worn it but figured i'd see if I could find a home for it before I take it to the charity shop. Still has the tags on it https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/A6UAAOSwngxeeq8L/s-l500.jpg Will just take a fiver to cover the cost of ship...

Re: ⚽ Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd: match thread

The performance has a lot to do with him being in the side though, we’re **** whenever he plays. I do think Noble could actually be useful if played as a number 10 pushed up the pitch. He's not quick but at least there he's not slowing down counter attacks and getting in the way of Rice/Soucek. Cer...

Re: ⚽ Manchester Utd v West Ham Utd: match thread

Are we allowed to complain about the line up and tactics yet? This approach didn't work for us in the cup and we've been feckless here. I don't understand why Moyes is so scared of Old Trafford? This United team is beatable, yet he wants 9 defensive players on the pitch. Once again, Nobles inclusio...
