Hammers Top Brass Will Not Trade With London Rivals

West Ham United are experiencing a more than decent start to this Barclays Premier League season, this is in no small way connected to clever recruitment under taken by the club's secret weapon, Mario 'the Huse' Husillos. Under the Huse's guidance the club has managed to clear out most of the dead wood, and bring in young exciting talent in their place.

Back in the day, the Hammers hierarchy couldn't, or wouldn't, keep their own counsel and felt compelled to discuss virtually every potential transfer in public before completion, consequently the club would be gazumped on a regular basis. Now the penny has dropped and fans find out about the good deals once they have been signed, sealed, and delivered.

Apparently the only restrictions placed on the Huse, apart from the obvious fiscal restraints, are that he does not enter in to negotiations with any of West Ham's London rivals, with the possible exception of today's opponents for the live on Sky match to be held at the London Stadium, Crystal Palace. The Selhurst Park outfit are not viewed as a direct threat, this may well change after today's result, also the two clubs have conducted transfer business together, former fans favourite James Tomkins and also Cheiko Kouyate both moved across London from East to West.

Any other transfer activity involving top flight London Clubs, particularly Tottenham, has been completely banned, and that is a message that David Sullivan, David Gold and Karen Brady have gone to great lengths to put in place. No longer will players come back to haunt the club, neither will they be sold on at a vast profit by the buying club without Hammers receiving substantial sell on fees.

Hammers really have stuck to their guns regarding player transfers, a case in point being Domingos Quina, he was the last West Ham player to be transferred to a 'local rival' in the form of Watford. At the time many Hammers fans were furious that the club were letting such a talent go just up the M1, however Quina has not been pulling up any trees at Vicarage Road, in fact he has only started nine Premier League games, scoring just one goal despite being dubbed a 'Wonder Kid'.

The game is littered with young talent that didn't quite make the grade, the trick is to recognise situations by being proactive rather than reactive, but there are some actions and guidelines that defy logic, and rightly so, why would West Ham want to trade with the odious Daniel Levy? even if it meant earning 'a few quid'. - Ed
