in my opinion on his day our best player yet were thinking about selling him to fund other deals surely this is going backwards

Re: Lanzini
So far, its paper talk.

Nice to know he seems to have some desire to stay.

In any video I see from players that have been at the club for a bit, Lanzini is the best player at the club to them. No sure if that is them being nice or having favourites but there you go.

Tough situation making sure he is healed and not prone but also not letting someone turn his head if he stays healthy.

Re: Lanzini
On his day Carlton Cole was the best striker at the club.

Actually, the same could be said about Andy Carroll

Starting with "on his day" is faint praise...

Re: Lanzini
Summed up by the OP. 'On his day'. He's too inconsistent and often seems to disappear and be found wanting when we don't have the ball. Don't get me wrong, he's a very good player and there are games where he is a joy to watch but if he wants the big money he needs to deliver much more.
The same could be said of many others who have been paid loads without proving themselves.

We have a ready made replacement technically in Fornals but we will have to see if he settles here and can make an impact in this league.

Re: Lanzini
120k seems expensive for a bloke who spent all last season with his feet up and is for the most part a luxury player that hasn't done a lot for fucking ages. I'd be playing hardball with the little fucker.

Re: Lanzini
I agree Lanzini is coming back to form and should be amongst our highest paid players or he may lose interest and fuck off sharpish

Antonio and Snodgrass came close.

Re: Lanzini
Lanzini in the last two games kept trying and was his effort that got us the goal.

didn't see anyone else getting even close before that.

Re: Lanzini
Lanzini on £35k that’s outrageous,

widely accepted as one of our key players and we’re treating him like a squad player

Get it sorted you mugs

Re: Lanzini
Football Insider 247 (whoever THEY are) saying, "according to sources", the little tinker is now demanding £120k pw to sign a new contract. He's currently on £35k which, by 2019 mentalist standards, is lowish... I suppose! But even so...


No wonder we don't buy well. Everyone already in situ is taking the piss.

Re: Lanzini
The bigger issue is the solidity of that 2 year extension. It should be pretty standard stuff for a football club. If they've done it right, we hold all the cards and he should rightly wait to see how his form is after coming back from an injury. If it isn't, heads should roll.

Russ of the BML 10:58 Fri Jun 14
Re: Lanzini
I think, after the injury he has had, the club are well within their rights to say to him that there is no extension at this time.

You get your head down, get your fitness back, get your form back and start winning games for us consistently then we review.

if that's not what Lanzini wants then he can leave. Simple.

At the end of the day we are evolving as a club. We are no longer all about getting pushed around by so called big stars. And held to ransom by people who think they are bigger than West Ham. Lanzini needs to understand that he is no longer in as powerful a position as he was prior to the WC. Live with it.

Re: Lanzini
Nobody remembers both Wilshere and nasri being injured then?

Lanzini would not have come straight back into the team if either were playing.
He was rushed back.
As for 'we were doing fine' check the performances at the time, and check yourself for that matter.
Fucking goldfish on here.

Re: Lanzini
I reckon he is after the security of a fat longer term pay cheque - insurance, if you like.
If we cave in he can, in theory and practise, do an Andy Carroll.
So he is looking for the high wage deal, WHU are reluctant, and are probably saying "You are with us for three years yet on the current arrangement"... etc... which of course is not what he wants to hear as, if his injury plays up, he could find himself out the door at the end of next season with zero prospects. So he is bound to be trying his luck against the 2 year extension, as it is killing off his negotiating power.
If we land Fornals, Pelle' prob sees Manu as (in todays terms) a cheap high grade replacement for him. You have to play your cards right. I can see Manu being pissed about it but life, as they say, is a hard old bitch.

Yeah thanks for that Tex. You can see an ACL coming up in the first week of preseason now!

Re: Lanzini
Give the guy a chance, a tough season through injury but not his fault.

He is a must for next season unless we want to return to our 'selling club' mentality, and as for £20m you are surely joking!!

Manuel 7:56 Thu Jun 13
Re: Lanzini
Let's be honest, he has NEVER been a great player by any stretch, but he can be a very good one. My gut feeling is that after his injury, other players coming in, it aint gonna get any better for him, but would love to be proved wrong.

Stubbo 7:47 Thu Jun 13
Re: Lanzini
Lanzini is more than capable of playing as one of the deeper 3 players, or as one of the wide forwards.

Players that mobile are always versatile.

Merely his injury recovery that leaves any kind of doubt (and prior to that his general inconsistency).

The old c wing 12:30 Thu Jun 13
Re: Lanzini
North Bank - I would dearly love to see it. I think his best period was around Payet who allowed him the space to play into, and that genuinely he is better in a better team. His style of play has elements of Sir Trev, and I think thats part of the appeal, I just wouldn't be devastated to lose him as my fear is he wont ever realise that potential.

the exile 12:18 Thu Jun 13
Re: Lanzini
C wing - I agree that he has never delivered in a sustained way. Many on here are being sentimental and looking at him through rose-tinted glasses. Whoever is negotiating his contract should not give in to his demands. We can either sell, but I doubt there will be much interest. Or we can keep him and let him try to prove himself, which he seriously needs to do. As far as I am concerned he has almost reached his credit limit.
