Talk of players

Submitted by alby foreverirons on Sun, 21/01/2024 - 11:38

coming in but most is the media taking the mick, the one that does look like it could happen is Kalvin Phillips, yes the same bloke that two seasons ago knocked us back because he wanted a big club. The loan price is 7 million and the wages are 130,000 a week for 4 months which totals nearly 9 million for a player with a massive injury record. The thing that really worries me is who will Moyes bench to make way for him, Soucek he never drops or subs whether he is having a good game or a shit game. JWP who he relies on for his corners and free kicks which at the moment are hit and miss or Alvarez who is a Steidten import and is the first player he takes of each game. For me I would rather us bring in someone that can be a good cover for Alvarez and hopefully if Moyes new contract doesn’t happen can replace Soucek.

and his cronies do is slate the manager, this is the third season in 4 we have not been scrapping at the wrong end of the table not the other way around.

I'm not saying Kalvin Phillips wouldn't be a useful addition to the West Ham squad for the remainder of the season, but it'll be for 4 months?
I doubt he'd be interested in a longer term deal, and personally I wouldn't want him long term. But £9million???!!!

Given Ben Johnsons recent performances, wouldn't Moyes be better off giving him some more playing time as a midfielder (I've been advocating him as a midfielder for years) , a new contract and get 3 years for the same ££ as 4 months of Phillips sitting in the treatment room?

Can't see why we are in for Phillips. Surely he is not starting over Alvarez or JWP. Not exactly a priority & the money being mentioned is ludicrous.

Soucek...yeah i know he is Moyes fav his new Fellaini but he could be a better option off the bench...ones thing for sure is if the Loan fee is as large as they say then he will have to be playing.

and we may not want it but if Pacman goes as expected for his £85million buyout clause then two players i would like to see us go for and get would be Morgan Gibbs-White and Eberechi Eze

I think Phillips should come and will come. I also see him getting a lot of game time. The squad is so thin. Lets see what he does for 4 months or so. Nobody can predict the future. Short or long term. The board will not make a rash decision, given our track record of the past. We will ship one or 2 out before the window closes...

As they say, the games gone mad. The Bowen penalty shout happened right in front of me. We could not believe it was not given. The blunts penalty was a joke, you could see clear as day McBurnie jumps at Areola leading with his elbow. He took Areola out. He's always at it, horrible git of a player.

Had a bust up in a pub Boogerscaravan Jnr ended up naffing one of the Northern Monkeys off so yours truly had to wade in with Boogerscaravan older Jnr. I took one or two in the ribs but we held our own. No plod to speak of at the time. But I'm too old for this shit. Thinking this could be my last awayday 60 and out!!!
