Re: The transfer window thread
I’d rather he watched someone than rely on youtube but as said if he isn’t playing it’s a wasted journey.
You’d hope SOMEONE on our staff has been watching targets seeing we have known our weaknesses for a long time.
Seems the same old Reactive Player of the Week stuff
Where is Carvalho or Dendoncker or whatever his name is?

The ones that cost money

Re: The transfer window thread
Someone on Kumb has suggested that he could be meeting the lad rather than watching him. It’s also been said that the Atlanta player he is watching is Josip Iličić. Big attacking midfielder who plays for Slovenia. Thirty in a couple weeks.

Especially if he doesn't play. Not mentioned as a likely starter in most of the Italian preview sites. But maybe Moyes know something they don't.

On another note, please no Samir Nazri. Reminds me of Milo Yannapolis.

Re: The transfer window thread
Strange that you would need to see a lad in the flesh. One game isn’t going to tell you a lot.

Re: The transfer window thread
I just hope we get an attacking midfielder
It was a worry to see Lanzini go off yesterday

Re: The transfer window thread
Has Sullivan junior been quiet on the twitter anyone, has he made any mention of new signings?

Re: The transfer window thread
I think that it's Moyes and his insisting on seeing players for himself before making a bid that has stopped us getting anywhere this window. That's why the report from IRONMIKE that Moyes has gone to see two games in Italy today including Joao Mario at Inter hopefully...

Mex Martillo 10:47 Sun Jan 21
Re: The transfer window thread
Moyes said after the match we are working on bringing in 1-2 towards the end of the window, should be soon then...

Re: The transfer window thread
Moyes can watch as many games as he likes, unless they are loans or free transfers it’s pointless.

Little Dave won’t spend a penny he doesn’t have to now we are mid table.

Bring on the protest march & demonstrations at the games.

Re: The transfer window thread
I thought this was the transfer thread yet it's descended into a general debate due to the lack of reliable gossip! Even unreliable media bullshit is lacking at the moment so here's one to get the juices flowing...

Re: The transfer window thread
What I can’t understand is there about 12 teams that are relaxation material and we are one of them If any chairman wants too stay in the best league in world rewarded with huge tv pay outs etc Why don’t they get players in when they have the chance or do they so take the gamble

Re: The transfer window thread
They say we're going for a loan now, cheaper for the 2bobs 1.4m for the 23 yr old Mario, but their not sure if he's heart is in it, so we are getting a cheaper and older option instead with the 30 yr old Nasri, then again could all be a smokescreen?

Re: The transfer window thread
What happened with Leander Dendoncker, last
I read Anderlecht had put his price down to 10 Million

Jesus wept, might as well delete this thread - not a sniff of a signing, just a load of egos wanking themselves silly.

Re: The transfer window thread
So what should we be doing Side, given Sullivan doesn't have the clout of a Saudi Sheikh, and we don't have the marketing machine of Man Utd?

Trying to do what Spurs have done is the only logical path to follow (until such time as these owners move on and we get Bill Gates to admit his life long love of all things West Ham).

Whilst we have tin pot owners, we have to behave accordingly. No reason to like it, but to try and follow a model that can't succeed makes no sense.

We have to cut our cloth suitably. Our owners clearly dont have the financial muscle or the desire to follow the 'buy big' or even the 'buy quite big' model.

I want us to buy quality, top drawer players. But the only world class aspect of our club is the volume of our home gates and the quality of our away support. In all other areas we're still on the same level as middle of the league sides.

Re: The transfer window thread
Let's say two years of the new stadium gives you £10m per year extra in the club coffers. What does that £20m get you - one £10m player every 2 years and then their contract covered? Of course if you make a pigs ear with a signing like Ayew, you've effectively wasted 4yrs+ of the advantages of the new stadium with one mistake. Make a couple of big bad signings (which I'd argue we've done over the past few years) and that's a whole era basically squandered because of poor decisions.

To justify the new stadium, the club simply has to be better run on the transfer side. It has to be accountable and careful with every pound, because spending that well or badly will be the deciding factor whether this new era will be delivered or not.

Re: The transfer window thread
PS. They've moved us into a stadium that SCREAMS of of ambition both on and off the pitch, except they won't finance the on, and expect us to be happy with that move into purgatory mid table shop window when we would have been happy as we was with your fantastic transfer plan.

It's easy to be laughed at by the bigger clubs the media when you have smaller crowds and a ground that fulfils that ambition.When you have bigger crowds than them though and they are still taking the piss on the pitch more often than not then it gets really pissy.

Re: The transfer window thread
Realistically Stubbo that plan is fantastic for a club that's set up as an old fashioned family club in a traditional stadium like Upton Park was who's fan base realise it's standing within the modern game.Now .....here is our new reality..... that set up is doomed to sell any prospects or finds to our bigger NEIGHBOURS and WON'T keep 55,000+ bums in a 55,000+ in a new stadium we can't match in the quality of in playing staff we get in.Even Arsenal will be struggling as is starting now, so they will be looking to feed off the likes of West Ham.

Fucking great, glad for you, you except the reality of that.I don't and they can fuck off into an industry that matches their financial outlay.

Re: The transfer window thread
Once a player is at the club it actually doesn't matter what you paid for them really. And that goes for future decisions about them - it doesn't matter that it's half price, it only matters if it's the right move for the club.

This indignance and hubris in response to offers for our players is I suppose quite a standard response. But it reveals an arrogance I think. Hernandez has offered so little - it seems to me like decision-makers at the club are in denial about it. Hernandez is only worth what a buyer wants to pay - if it ends up half what you originally paid what does it say about your ability to value players?
