Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I’ve grown to be fairly underwhelmed by Caleta-Car, the more I’ve seen him, but as a pure profile, there’s no doubt that £15m would be fantastic value if he really was as good as advertised. I’m sure he’s better than Diop and Dawson though, and if we brought him in, I’d trust Moyes to focus on his s...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

How tedious to read page after page of a one-man Rooney love fest at the expense of Declan Rice, on a West Ham transfer forum.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Watkins is such a weird player.

He’s both a bit of a clumsy oaf who is ridiculously profligate with his chances, but also a really decent player who would fit us superbly.

I suppose you could describe Michail similarly, so it makes sense.

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

For all the criticism he gets, Antonio is consistently highlighted as our best player, or at very least among them, by opposition fans. Not debating whether Antonio is among our best players or not, but about opposition fans highlighting him as such, so what? We see infinitely more of our players t...

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

We might think we are in competition with Man Utd and Arsenal, but we realistically aren't. We need to concentrate on digging out that Europa League spot. One of those two teams you mentioned will end up in a Europa League spot. Maybe both. If we aren’t in competition with them, then we really aren...

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

Tell ya one thing. Losing in overtime to Man Utd at Old Trafford is not going to decide whether we finish with European football or not this season. Watch us bounce back and finish strong post January. I mean, it probably will, considering in overtime, as you put it, we just dropped a point and gav...

Re: Should we now focus on the EL and FA cup

We’re flopping a bit now. We’ll be in a fight to finish above Wolves in 7th. We aren’t touching Man U, Arsenal and Tottenham this season unfortunately. Between luck, their depth compared to ours and our unwillingness to improve on obvious deficiencies, we’ve missed our chance to make a real dent in ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Imagine how amazing the player will be when we sign him in Summer 2024.

All those windows of energy and money built up and harnessed, until it finally releases itself in the form of the Vitruvian Man Striker.

I hope Rice will be impressed by him when he is playing against him.

We may well have known about Samir but decided to pass, however we (the fans) may never know.

Would have thought a Watford signing might not be up to our standards.
It’s usually our signings that are not good enough for Watford…

Re: Loudest Goal Celebration ?

Antonio’s equaliser in the final game at the Boleyn? Maybe Reid’s winner too. I was at the game but my dad was home in Leyton sitting in the garden because he couldn’t handle the nerves. Because the game kicked off later than normal (I believe?) he said it was particularly quiet that night and he he...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

We wouldn't come close to spending the £200m we got for them, and I also don't think we would come close to replacing their importance and effect on the team, particularly Dec. But that's something that will be an inevitable problem no matter what if we do sell him. In my mind, our best course of ac...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Ok I think I have now identified where we differ. Contrary to you if we do not make any signings this window (CB or wherever) I will not bemoan that because for me it means, as far as the manager was concerned, the right player was not available (on loan or otherwise) or he/his current club preferr...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

You, and many others, are bemoaning the lack of signings, providing lists of who we could sign and in some cases indicating a failure to do so shows a lack of ambition to achieve the goal of European qualification. I question all of this. For me Moyes has identified his targets, found, at least to ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Or two were properly scouted, their role and likely contribution identified and two were not. As I have made clear in each post (subtly ignored by you of course) it is not overpaying that is wrong but overpaying for the wrong player. I repeat do you believe we have refused to pursue the signing of ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

So we did not pay over the top or that they were startling successes? No objection to paying slightly over the odds (the January premium I mentioned for example) for the right player but doing it for just anybody is the stupidity of the previous regime repeated, an approach you seem happy with. Whe...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

The problem is that waiting and "go Sully mental" aren't the two options. And we can't forever say "Haller and Anderson didnt work for us" as a reason not to go to certain fees. Jarrod Bowen was on his way to Palace until we did something we initially didn't want to do and upped...

Pay a little extra like we did with Haller and Anderson? That worked out so well.
This really is the laziest argument I see when it comes to West Ham and transfers. There's just no point in formulating a proper response to this, is there?

Re: Best Free Kick in PL History? Yay or Nay?

I was in the BML, towards the right side, for the Payet free kick against Palace and I can still remember so clearly that when we won the free kick, there was a sense of 'he's actually going to score this' but almost in a comical way, because whilst he was becoming automatic with them, the angle jus...
