Yarmo Offer - Snap Their Hands Off

Andriy Yarmolenko's time at West Ham has been an unmitigated disaster, his signing fromBorussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018 for around £18 Million was a classic example of 'Pellegrinitus', and his outrageous £115,000 per week completely defies logic.

Yarmolenko's stats are appalling, in his entire injury ravaged time at the club the Ukranian has played only 47 games, and scored a paltry 7 goals. Not much of a return for around £35 Million in wages and signing on fees is it?

How To Understand Probability Within Odds

I started “supporting” West Ham by betting on them back when I was 17 years old. I used to go to a local betting shop near my place almost every day for the following 2 years. It was illegal but authorities were not that bothered back in 1993. An underage person could easily drink, smoke and even gamble his money away.

Season Ticket Renewals Not Easy!

The 'window' for renewing West Ham season tickets closes on June the 14th at 5pm, for once the club won't need to hype the 'value' up, due to the club's highest ever Barclays Premier League points total meaning direct qualification to the Group stages of the Europa Cup, and th fact that fans have been starved of attending games for over a year.

Are Girou Having A Giraffe?

Today is the first official day of the transfer window, although there has already been a certain amount of 'jostling' for position ahead of the starters gun! One deeply worrying rumour that refuses to go away is that relating to Chelsea's Olivier Giroud.

Time and again West Ham have been 'linked' with the 34 year old French striker over the last 18 months, and the speculation persists despite the fact that Giroud is the exact polar opposite of Moyes's RB template for players which is young, lean and keen!

Why Swap A General For A Sergeant?

Confusing reports are emanating from our old 'fleecer' Manuel Pellegrini's new club Real Betis, apparently Hammers are 'interested' in bringing Real's Aissa Mandi to the London Stadium from Spain. The 60-capped Algeria international has been heavily linked with a move to Villarreal this summer on a free transfer but as yet, nothing has been confirmed. The 29-year-old was valued at around £9 million recently, but is set to leave Betis for nothing this summer, as the centre-back has failed to agree terms on his new deal.

So How Will Moyes Spend His £85 Million?

The exact amount of money available to Barclays Premier League managers is always a matter of smoke and mirrors for most clubs, with no one wanting to show their hand too clearly. West Ham have definitely been in that category for years, there have been some ridiculous 'attempts' at signing players at 'low ball' prices to boot!

Armstrong-A Saphire In The Making

There are certain football players who look as if they came from the Halcyon days of the sport back in the fifties, one such player is Hammers transfer target, Blackburn Rover's Adam Armstrong. The powerful striker is only 24 years old, but looks 34 and even his name seems to have come from a bygone era!

Lingard's Omission To Aid Irons?

Jesse lingard's omission from Gareth Southgate's England squad assembled to play the delayed Euro's starting on the 13th of June, will have a knock on effect in many ways, not all of which are bad for West Ham. Lingard's stock and value sky rocketed following his loan deal to West Ham from Manchester united, such was his stunning form that he was included in Southgate's England squad for the first time since the 2018 World Cup.

Hammers Attempting Cheeky P/X For Kral

According to various sources, West Ham are well on their way to their first major signing of the summer as they pursue a deal that will bring 'hot property' Alex Kral to the London Stadium, in fact some reports go as far as to say that the player has already agreed personal terms with West Ham United ahead of his anticipated move from Spartak Moscow.

So What's Wrong With Hammers Czech Out?

Alan Pardew was always a bit Marmite for fans at most of the clubs he managed, before and after West Ham, but the one thing he did at every club was to make them money in the transfer market, either by astute signings domestically, or by finding new European sources for acquisitions.
