I read Dalglish’s autobiography,he had a weeks trial at West Ham as a kid,but he chose Celtic instead,weird as he was a Rangers fan

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Dalglish is probably the best we missed out on

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Anyone remember the tale of the Andriy Shevchenko trial under Harry?

I decided against it because the lad didn't pull up any trees

Presumably the bung wasn't generous enough either

You thinking of Marcelo Salas? Never heard the saviola one.

Didn't we buy Matt Jarvis instead of Sadio Mane over a million odd?

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
of course none of this happens to any other clubs does it ?

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
I thought that instead of signing Kante we opted for Obiang

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
TBF, our 10mill offer for Young was accepted. He just didn't want to come. Went to Villa as "less risky" or some shite. And for less money!

So, on reflection: fuck off Ashley, you twat.

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Ashley Young. When at Watford.

We were in. But Villa broke their transfer fee record to get him instead. Flogged to Manc and trophies fell on his head.

Imagine if he'd come to us? We wouldn't be arguing about Arfer cos he'd be polishing boots at best.

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
What about Rob LEE? Desperate to come but we wouldn't stump up the cash. Kegsy used to take the piss out of him for it. Still it all worked out as we signed him when he was 40!

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
the kante one says it all- he was fundamental to turning leicester into league champions, whilst we threw money at an ageing player ( and his agent) and apart from the accidental brilliance of rice this season, havent ever really seen it as being a key building for squad development

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Redknapp passed on Shevchenko as he didn't pull up any trees!!

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
We also missed out on Kieron Dyer from Ipswich to Newcastle for the sake of half a million quid. He would have been a good buy then, before he was wrecked.

Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Another one from memory was Andy Cole from Bristol City when he went to N'cassell, We offered something like 1.4m for him, but wouldn't go to 1.6.

Block 4:53 Wed Mar 6
Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Remember when Redknapp passed on SAVIOLA?

Fucking idiot.

El Scorchio 4:49 Wed Mar 6
Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
I get some of them, where we actually passed on someone who turned out to be quality- but that happens to every team.

Not so sure why some of them are on there. We've no control over a player who decided to go to another club, or someone we were pursuing but couldn't afford. Van Nistelrooy and Neymar, for example, were NEVER coming to West Ham in a month of Sundays.

Not taking Cech when we had a chance was clearly a fucking terrible decision.

Eddie B 4:02 Wed Mar 6
Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
Gordon Banks. Massive fuck up by Greenwood, that.

Grumpster 3:58 Wed Mar 6
Re: Nine transfers West Ham missed out on and who they signed instead
I mean it's always a case of what if's, but does make you laugh when reminded of some of the utter gash we have instead signed in these windows.
