Young Guns Could Save The Day

Years ago Alex Ferguson shocked the domestic football fraternity by selecting Beckham, Giggs and Scholes for Manchester United's first team instead of buying in players at vastly inflated prices from other clubs. Ferguson's decision proved to be a masterstroke and set the cornerstone of what was to become their most successful era.

Yarmo Won't Be There

Hammers rarely used and rarely fully fit, Andriy Yarmolenko put himself in the shop window following his exploits during the Euro 2020 competition, consequently there are several 'interested parties' in acquiring the 32 year old Ukraine international.

Back Handed Compliment To Irons?

Chelsea's desire to sell Tammy Abraham almost matches Hammers' need for a striker, so it should be a straight forward deal that can be arranged easily shouldn't it? Well somehow West Ham's 'above' average performance last season had led to the club being viewed as more of a serious local contender than either Tottenham or Arsenal.

Chelsea Want To P/X Tammy-He Says No! No! No!

Chelsea want to offer Tammy Abraham to Borussia Dortmund as part of their huge bid to sign Erling Haaland, the £150 Million valued 20 year old is the top summer transfer target for the Champions League winners, ahead of Romelu Lukaku and Tottenham's Harry Kane.

Sign'Ings'-Hammers Forgiven!

Having had their fingers burned, nay incinerated, with their signings of a catalogue of playing 'cripples', the West Ham hierarchy are obviously 'extremely concerned' with regards to future signings and to avoid similar mistakes. Now what seems a totally understandable course of action, does however have it's drawbacks.

Transfer Responsibly-When The Funds Stop-Stop!

Possibly as early as next week, the full extent of Manuel Pellegrin's disastrous spell in the east end will be coming to a conclusion, the club have already jettisoned Jack Wilshere, Sebastien Haller, Felipe Anderson, Albion Ajeti, not forgetting Roberto, the final departee scheduled is Andriy Yarmolenko.

Declan & Ronaldo Transfers?

When Christiano Ronaldo was at the height of his pomp during his time at Manchester United, their then manager, Alex Ferguson had a running battle with Real Madrid over their 'tapping up' of the Portuguese maestro. Ferguson famously described the Real Madrid board as "gangsters" and that he would not countenance doing any business with them, however they eventually got their man, despite Manchester United's enormous financial resources.

Dec's Despair-Sub Plot

Firstly we would churlish to criticise Gareth Southgate's management of an England team that nearly won their first International tournament final for 55 years, the team, the coaching staff and the manager took their country to within touching distance of greatness only to fall at the last hurdle on penalties.

Confusion Or Clarity Over Anderson Exit?

In footballing parlance, David Moyes 'never fancied' Felipe Anderson, a talented 'luxury' player brought to West Ham at great expense as part of 'Pellegreedy's' master plan to take the club 'to the next level'. Unfortunately that next level was to virtually bankrupt the club, at the same time as nearly getting it relegated, that certainly would have been another level, but not the one the fans or owners had anticipated.

Dumb & Dumber-Irons After Braithwaite?

Well it is the silly season, so we would be neglecting our duties in not mentioning players 'linked' with West Ham, but some of the reports are at best stale, whereas others are down right dumb. The 2020/1 Euros have thrown up the names of new targets, as some players have shone during their appearances in the competition, many have become unrecognisable from the players that their domestic fans see.
