Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

So a top club insider has informed that other site we are not in for Diego Carlos of Sevilla, it would cost £30m and that is too rich for West Ham. I’m taking that we have no money or very little, probable about 20/25m This I fear is the window that convinces Rice where his future lies. What do the...

Has there been a firm link to Schick today or have I missed something?
As far as I'm aware, the only recent link came from Major. Not sure anything has been reported in the press or on social media, unless I've missed it.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Twice as much..? An old friend and builder used to do work round 2 Spurs' players houses in the early 00s, both then-current players. Both had so much cash they had a completely skewed concept of reality. One used to get his underwear (socks and pants!) dry cleaned and would give my mate a £50 note...

Their reign is over isn't it? Kretinsky will be taking over in a year or so.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I dont think people can really gripe at Lingard taking the Barcode money if they're offering 200 bags a week. That's double what he'd likely get at us. If I was him and 29 I'd be tempted to do the same. An up and coming player aged 21 to 24 of a similar style is what we should be looking for. A lef...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

My gripe with Him is from the summer. I just can’t understand how he never joined last year. I’d love to know if we even tried, I’d have thought after how he performed we would have and why he didn’t wanna come or we didn’t try hard enough I dunno. Now I don’t care about him going Newcastle, we hav...

If it's an attacking midfielder we want, may I recommend Ryad Boudabouz of St Etienne. He doesn't bottle a tackle does Boudabouz
But does he have a good beard?

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

A lot of people slagging off Lingard SHOULD he decide to go to NUFC, but my understanding is we've not even put any sort of bid for him in yet, unless I'm missing something? Mixed messages. An ESPN journo with 120K twitter followers "confirmed" earlier today that we'd put in a bid for Lin...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I see a few posters being very anti the idea of Ben Brereton Diaz. I'm curious to know whether that's a) because he's only risen to prominence this season and needs to prove himself over a longer period to be worth a punt or b) they've watched him play and literally don't think he's good enough to m...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

https://twitter.com/GFFN/status/1483907656309956612 That's serious poppy* for a 19 year old who's only just broken through in Ligue 1. I wonder why there doesn't seem to be a lot of reported interest around Cabral. Basel wanting too much poppy* or PL clubs don't think he's too risky at the mooted p...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Man Utd literally have a ton of under-performing stars who would positively thrive in our side. I'd take Shaw and Wan-Bisaka in a heartbeat, and I can only imagine how good Rashford would be for us.

Re: Top Reds

I find the people who select sports teams due to their success ie Manchester United, then also support Barcelona, Juve, PSG, then the top NBA team, top NFL team, have a personally defect It's penis extension, or even close to what Freund might describe as a form of modern 'penis envy'. Ironic, cos ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

So, if Moyes is waiting until the summer to see if (presumably) either Brereton Diaz or Lloyd Kelly become available due to their clubs not going up, what happens if: a) Blackburn/Bournemouth do get promoted so they still don't want to sell b) other clubs also bid big on the player(s)? We're back in...

SSN also saying that Moyes is having trouble finding players that are better than what he has already.....really, he can't find a better centre back than Diop? :lol:
And a better alternative forward option than Yarmolenko.

Re: West Ham U23s / Premier League 2

Oko-Flex's goal last night was awesome. Sounds like he's been doing very well in the U23s. Can't help but worry if he could be this year's Nathan Holland though. Hopefully, will get a shot at first-team action soon.

It's quite incredible that we're at 420 pages and there's not been a single shred of credible news. Proper stinker of a thread.
It peaked last night with everyone discussing how old they are. :grin:

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Was chatting to my Spurs 'mate' a short while ago (I know! I know!). He was saying all the Spurs forums are in meltdown from fans complaining that the board don't seem to be backing Conte with glossy new signings this window. I think the frustration must be universal across most PL clubs who despera...
