Another Youngster Departs

While there is optimism about the latest group of players to emerge from the club's 'famous academy', that cannot be said for the preceding group, yet another of that 'generation' of players, Josh Pask, has left West Ham United. The 21 year old has signed a three year deal with Coventry City and has joined on a free contract, however it is believed there was a 20% sell on clause inserted in to the contract.

Gomez At The LS -"Just Like My Dreams"-"Fade And Die?"

"They fly so high, nearly reach the Sky, then like my dreams......" If ever there was a more apt Football supporters song than Bubbles, particularly when referencing West Ham United, then we would like to hear what it is! For nigh on 60 years Hammers have struggled to replicate the team that 'won' the 1966 World Cup, won in Europe and won domestically, always failing in one way or another, well that's all about to change.

At Some Point A High Profile Man Must Exit To Fund Transfers

Hot on the heels of acquiring Villarreal star Pablo Fornals for £24 Million, West Ham United's as yet undisclosed but rumoured to be £31 Million bid for long term target Maxi Gomez has been accepted. Unfortunately for expectant Hammers fans a similar bid has also been accepted from Valencia, however the lure of the Barclays Premier League and the higher wages that the Irons are able to offer should see the deal over the line, but there are a couple of issues that will raise their ugly heads.

Hammers Massive Expenditure To Continue Funded By HP Not DR

For a club supposedly struggling to generate transfer market funds, certain players have to be sold or released, West Ham United are doing a pretty good job of confounding critics and supporters in equal measure. The impending arrival of Villarreal star Pablo Fornals, one of the hottest young stars in Spain, for a fee of £24 Million has technically wiped out over half of the rumoured transfer kitty.

It Had To Be City Didn't It? Fixtures Announced

Rumours that West Ham United were going to start the new Barclays Premier League season with an a away match at Watford due to some creative photoshopping of a supposed fixture list, have been firmly dispelled with the news that the Irons have been handed the poisoned chalice of a home game to start the season, against Manchester City at 12:30 on Saturday the 10th of August!

Forget Gomez And Gomes More Like Jordan And Lobokta

Rumours that West Ham are back in for Maxi Gomez may have emanated from Hammers contacting Celta Vigo about Gomez'z team mate Stanislav Lobokta, the 24 year old Slovakian midfielder, dubbed ‘the new Luka Modric', could be available for around €15-20 Million. Unfortunately any whimsical thoughts of a €60 Million double signing of both Gomez and Lobokta will have to remain a pipe dream, it appears pragmatism prevails, that is unless a 'big' name leaves the club of course.

The Real Reason West Ham Are Targeting Marseille Players

Despite ostensibly possessing a 'paltry' £30 Million transfer kitty, West Ham United have been linked with a plethora of players, the latest of which is Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson. The 24 year old previously played for Le Mans and Montpellier before joining Marseille in January 2017, Sanson plays in central midfield at the Stade Olympique but as Marseille failed to qualify for Europe this season after a fifth place finish in Ligue 1, the French side might need to sell some players to comply with FFP regulations.

Will Arnie Be Back?

Parents of petulant but gifted children will always try to excuse their bad behaviour by saying "they get bored, they are just much cleverer than the other kids", Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini knows all about 'clever kids', goodness knows he has 'dealt' with quite a few of them during his long and illustrious career. So the news that Marko Arnautovic is throwing his toys out of the pram will come as no surprise to the Chilean, but it doesn't mean he'll like it.

Strange Goings On Between Hammers & Fenerbahce

Admittedly it is the beginning of the transfer silly season, and as such speculation is rife, but there are some wildly polarised stories regarding potential dealings between Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and West Ham United. That old 'friend' of the Irons, a certain Mr Damien Comolli, yes the same one who used to do the dirty work for Daniel Levy and the 'unmentionables', is rumoured to be on his way to London in order to try and buy Hammers midfielder Manuel Lanzini on the cheap!
