Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

All completely makes sense Peaches but what doesn't make sense is this 'right fit' mentality from Moyes. His last 'right fit' signings, Vlasic and Kral, aren't exactly setting the world on fire. So all this selection dithering appears not only wishful thinking but detrimental to our results, theref...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

27th of January, less than 5 days until the window closes. It’s going to be disappointing if we don’t bring in a LCB and a striker. I’ve already said we would be foolish not to sign Caleta-Car. I think a striker will be very hard to find, especially one who fulfills Moyes requirements. For all the t...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

5 days left in the window and more things getting done. Seems like it’s not impossible to find a striker in January. Sevilla have signed Martial on loan, Juve are on the verge of signing Vlahovic. Fiorentina who have also signed Jonathan Ikone are close to replacing Vlahovic with Cabral. Barca look ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I don’t think Rice will go anywhere except Man City. Chelsea have more midfielders on loan than you can shake a stick at, and need Centre backs much more than a defensive midfielder as Silva will be 38 at the beginning of next season and Christiansen is apparently running his contract down to sign f...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Less than a week to go in the transfer window and things are starting to happen. Looks like Vlahovic will be going to Juve, but they will have to raise some of the €80M, and Fiorentina look to be signing Cabral as a replacement. Also that probably means Morata goes back to Atletico taking them out o...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Kretinski's worth is not important, it's his access to cash is what makes a difference,unless he is going to buy players with Royal Mail shares! It looks like half of his £150m investment has gone into G&S back pockets - so the club is no better off,financially speaking. Caleta Car and Kamara f...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

:nonpl: The window closes one week today. Ideally we need a LCB, LB, and at least one striker, plus a couple of “depth” players better than Yarmolenko and Masuaku. At the very least we need a left sided defender and a striker. We’re trying to sign a better striker than Antonio and a better defender ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Before you first posted this same story it was all over the other main West Ham forum (the long running westhamonline.net) by one of their supposed ITKs that we would be putting in a club record bid for a PL based striker. The guy said he couldn’t / wouldn’t name him but that it was crazy money and...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Interesting. Our owners are tight with Bill Kenwright too ain’t they? I think our owners have been guilty of writing down players values too much to report accounting losses and plead poverty and FFP problems. We’ve greatly reduced our wage bill from the highest levels and If we were to increase th...

Exciting news about the striker.... I'm not sure how much impact the U12s player is going to have though
You’re probably right Burnley. My nephew is very good, but he’s an attacking midfielder and we’re well stocked there.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Everton are in no way skint but they are in danger of falling foul of the FFP rules. These are being taken more seriously with examples like Derby being fined 9 of the21 points and being sued by Middlesbrough for violating FFP and Barca having to let Messi go on a free and needing to shift Coutinho,...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I just want to say I am not in the know, at least not for a very long time, but I ( and more regularly my sister) still hear from my late Dad’s old friends and patients who were players, coaches and even owners in the 60s to 80s and a few in the early 90s. My sister is starting to get more exposed t...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I put on here a week or so ago that we were trying to break our transfer record for a striker. My sister was just told ( by the same person, now peripherally connected, but previously integral to the club) Calvert Lewin was / is one of three strikers we are looking at and that and that we are likely...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

4 other potential striker targets are Jonathan David, Amine Gouiri, Giamluca Scamacca, and Andrea Pinamonti. They all have some but not all of the characteristics Moyes is looking for, and are all good young strikers. The one that really puzzles me is Hlozek. I guess the concerns are lack of top end...

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

One positive today was Areola. He could do nothing about the goal. Made one very good save and commanded his area. He looked much better on balls in the air than Fabianski. He also did well with the ball at his feet. It looked like he took a couple of risks, but he was comfortable and confident enou...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Today Man United’s strike force was Ronaldo, Rashford Cavani and Martial. You could argue that Greenwood is a striker too. We have Antonio. Ignoring transfer fees, that is over £1M a week in salary. Antonio (who cost £7.5M as a winger) and is on £80k a week. I am not suggesting we spend Man U money,...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Interesting development. Leverkusen have signed Azmoun on a free once he is out of contract in the summer. That could make Schick available, but probably not until the summer.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I don’t think they’re going to spend because we’re not in danger of relegation it’s quite likely they’ll be selling up next year. I really think this is a big issue. GSB will be gone in 14 months and one day so it really up to Kretinsky to push for investment in players. If the players Moyes wants ...

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

We now have 17 days until our next premier league match. Hopefully that’s long enough for us to get our players rested and mentally refreshed not to mention (at least) a couple of quality players in.
