Sometimes i get really peed off with our club and how they act and today is one of those days.......week or so back rumours were the Gooners wanted Bowen...just rumours and he's not for sale anyway and today for no reason whatsoever we find the club have put a price tag of £75million on his head to deter clubs from making an approach.....why? by putting a price on his head you basically saying yeah he is available if you have the money and yet again we shoot ourselves in the foot.

Now whilst not naive and every player has there price what kind of message does this send out to others at the club especially to Rice.....they want to keep him they want to challenge for champions league place they want to build a team around him well if you start selling our best players or price tagging them it is never going to happen in my lifetime or any of the younger fans of the clubs lifetime ever.

Again big club big stadium we can compete with the big boys ha! do me a favour we are what we always will be a decent football club that will upset the applecart every now and then and once the goings good we cash in on our players...Rio/Fatboy/Joe cole/Johnson/Macavennie/TC......nothing will ever change...Rice will go Bowen will follow Scamacca if he hits the ground running as well.

So just one question what will the club say if the barcodes come in with the £75million what then eh? mug ourselves off all the time its bloody annoying.....a simple he is not for sale at any price should be the answer an England international an outstanding talent and we just hang a price tag on to deter others lol....ok rant over just get really annoyed with how we do things at times...and dont get me started on a loan deal for Cornet ffs if you want him buy him its £17.5 million not £70million ffs.

I share your annoyance mc. So we sell Bowen for 75 mil. What then? A half decent replacement will cost that much and change. If someone comes in with silly money, I’m talking 150 mil. Then let him go but no we need to buy not sell.

I doubt they would sell Bowen ,the fans would tear that stadium asunder .
Imagine someone approaching the Scousers and enquired about Sellar they wouldn't be long being told where to go

We should not let Bowen or Rice go,we couldnt replace there fitment into the club,it is stupid putting a price tag on anyone as someone could match it,then we are in deep shit.

And what will Bowen be thinking? whats the ambition of the club? it can unsettle a player even one who should be on the first/second on the team sheet week in week out.

I agree the club would sell Bowen for £75mil.
Lets be realistic, West Ham don't have the global income or filthy rich owners of some in the league, so competing with them may be suicide (2008??)
They have stated openly they are modelling the future on the Red Bull model, which is to bring in young promising players, develop them and sell on for profit. This attracts lots of young prospects with big ambitions and create a sustainable business model.
