  1. I remember his debut away at Arsenal when he was 16 and he was one of the best players on the pitch. I dont think the changing of managers over the last 5 years at West Ham helped him, he was tipped for the very top.
  2. Barcelona have an interest in Stuani to replace injured Luis Suarez. Clause in his contract - Min Fee 21m
  3. Sounds like Che Adams to Leeds for 1m loan with set fee of 10m future transfer. There was an enquiry about Britt during the Pulis reign. Clutching at straws here. Strong rumours they are set to announce a new partial owner of the club from Qatar towards the end of the month.
  4. Moyes says West Ham are waiting on this specific injury to Randolph
  5. Represented by the same agency as Patrick Roberts.
  6. Make no mistake Roberts is a Premier League footballer and would be a fantastic signing. I remember watching him a number of times for Celtic and he was different class. That solo goal he scored in the Champions League against Man City showed what he could potentially do on his day. If this is indeed the direction the club is moving towards then exciting times ahead.
  7. Burnley made an enquiry about Wood but their valuation of him was significantly lower than what it would take for us to let him leave considering he signed a new deal 6 months ago. He has been watched by both City and United. JW says he is one of the most naturally talented youngsters he has ever worked with and could potentially be one of the best defenders to come out of the club.
  8. Now Clayton has an outlet in Gestede for his 40-50 yard aimless balls.
  9. Agreed. Woodgate talking to Keane on the sidelines with his hand over his mouth while Keane scribbles notes with a Bic on a small piece of paper looking gormless.
  10. Where did the Gegenpress philosophy go championed by Woodgate pre-season? Passing to Clayton after nervous shadow play and him hoofing it 40-50 yards looking to counter.
  11. Steve Round joining Mikel Arteta at Arsenal as part of coaching staff.
  12. We won 3 consecutive matches with Howson and Leadbitter together in the middle of the field with Forshaw on bench so Clayton missed out on those matches but played in EFL Cup. Could be a case of Wednesday wanting to strengthen squad coming for a playoff push. Hutchinson is more of a right back and they have had suspension/injuries to Odubajo and Palmer. Downing and Leadbitter were frozen out and brought back in so Monk has form for it.
  13. I was told we are interested in a couple of youngsters at Sunderland who we have been watching for quite some time. Benjamin Mbunga-Kimpioka and Elliot Embleton, injury to the latter may have delayed things. Sheff Wed and Hull have shown interest in Clayton, wants to stay local to Harrogate with child on the way. Gestede may be going north of the border in January but it depends on whether we can come to an agreement with him for the remainder of his contract.
  14. We had some impressive results and performances in that PL season against Top 10 teams with a net spend of 17m (De Roon making up the majority of this net with a 13m fee). The whole club were not invested in the project and a few individuals in the background were working against AK. Imagine the difference if we were able to add to the squad with some of the names linked below in 2016/17: Lukas Rupp (signed for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) Aissa Mandi (signed for Real Betis) Dennis Praet (signed for Sampdoria) James Morrison (signed a contract extension at West Brom) Michail Antonio (signed a contract extension with West Ham) Clément Grenier Clement Chantome (signed for Stade Rennais) Hakim Ziyech Domagoj Vida Tim Krul Khouma Babacar Thomas Meunier (signed for PSG) Neven Subotic (deal fell through after failed medical) Harry Maguire Enzo Fernández Gerard Deulofeu Fernando Llorente (signed for Swansea) Tomas Kalas (signed for Fulham) Laurent Depoitre Jefferson Montero Alvaro Arbeloa (signed for West Ham) Denis Cheryshev Rachid Ghezzal Filip Djordjevic Kenneth Vermeer Jon Walters Cheick Tiote Henri Bedimo Rachid Ghezzal Gökhan Gönül Keiren Westwood Pepe Reina Martin Skrtel (signed for Fenerbahçe) Cameron Jerome Sergi Samper Ryan Bennett Cristi Săpunaru Mike van der Hoorn (signed for Swansea) Blerim Džemaili Lee Cattermole Matt Philips (signed for West Brom) Chris Gunter Ramadel Falcao Matz Sels (signed for Newcastle) Vincent Aboubakar Martin Caceres Nicolai Jorgensen Santiago Arias Tomáš Necid Jeff Hendrick (signed for Burnley) Robin Van Persie Demarai Grey Filip Helander Yakou Meite (signed for Reading) Andre Ayew Wesley Hoedt
  15. Just hope we dont revert to past games with a lead, stick 10 behind the ball and invite pressure.
  16. Randolph Nsue Ayala Gibson Friend De Roon Forshaw Traore Fischer Negredo Stuani/Bamford
  17. He would be based in Cornwall just like Pulis in Bournemouth with Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson running day to day activities. There are a number of players from Leeds, Luton and Bury who have said Blackwell is a bully with younger players and funnily enough is bullied himself by more outspoken and bigger reputation players at his clubs (There were a number of players on the Under The Cosh podcast who talk candidly about it - Clarke Carlisle.) Wonder if Gibson will allow Warnocks son to work on behalf of the club as an agent for Unique Sports Management and whether Mark McKay is involved in some capacity.
  18. Woodgate was learning from Pulis for 18 months - December 2017 up until May 2019. He couldnt speak highly enough of him pre season about how much he learnt from his tactics, coaching and man management. If we need to bring in Warnock for Woodgate to learn more.......
  19. I cant speak for Woodgate aside from the publicized issues going back to his time at Leeds and Tottenham but in reality Warnock is not the character the media likes to portray. He is an arrogant, lying bully partial to agreements with players for monetary purposes who has involved himself with a number of unsavory corrupt characters in the game over the last 3 decades (In recent times Willie McKay which goes all the way back to his time at Sheffield Utd) in order to build up his finances in return for exclusive arrangements. He should not be near any football club.
  20. I wouldnt want Neil Warnock anywhere near this club in a DoF or Manager role. This is from knowledge of a player who used to play for him who shared a number of stories.
  21. What happened to the soundbites from Woodgate pre-season about the Gegenpress style he admired and wanted to implement at the club after learning it from Klopp during his time at Liverpool? He was also a scout at Liverpool watching some of the best young talent in the UK yet presented Bola and Browne in his PowerPoint to our club hierarchy.
  22. Battening down the hatches with 45 minutes to go just gave Hull the impetus and momentum to really have a go against a team with only 2 wins out of 17 in the League
  23. Lack of intelligence and naivety to make such a comment after a hard earned draw and being a local lad from the area. Perhaps a wise older head would have used the point to galvanize the team and fans into the start of a run. In a way for me it emphasizes he is not the right man for the job and is out of his depth. He should be fully focused on turning around an awful 2 wins out of 17 game streak (Less than 12% win rate), not focusing on social media and fans opinions.
