Sorry Mr Carroll but I’ve had enough of you!

I’ve reached the end of my tether with Andy Carroll. In 2013 we made him our record signing investing £15.5m in the striker, made him our top earner with a basic of £85,000 per week and an overall package understood to be closer to £100,000 per week. We have been patient, we have been tolerant, […]

West Ham board deliver on Premier League promise

We appear to be days away from one of the most exciting West Ham signings in a long time when Javier Hernandez eventually becomes a Hammer. After the failed experiment with foreign players such as Simone Zaza and Gokhan Tore the board promised to focus on players with Premier League experience and I think they have […]

Signing Chicharito is key to West Ham transfer success

Signing Javier Hernandez would a massive coup which could make or break this summer transfer window for West Ham in the eyes of the supporters. The signing of Pablo Zabaleta on a free transfer and the probable imminent loan signing of  Joe Hart are both massively welcomed and will add the promised quality to the […]

Market changes but Irons policy seems the same

I do wonder whether we have learnt our lessons from last Summer and whether the individuals in charge of the transfers have realised just how much the market has changed in a year. Last year we chased Carlos Bacca who failed to give us an answer in a situation which has all the hallmarks of the current […]

Hammers transfer budget revealed

West Ham’s summer transfer budget is around £62m mark rising to as high £80m if further players are sold this summer. The Hammers have averaged £45m spend each summer which appears to be base Summer transfer budget. Surplus left over from the £25m sale of Dimi Payet after buying Snodgrass and Fonte adds £7m to the […]

Everton are welcome to him

West Ham desperately needs a striker for this coming season and not one in one or two season’s time. There appears to be an uproar among fans that West Ham let Everton get one over of them with the imminent the signing of Nigerian kid Henry Onyekuru who was often linked in the media with […]

The case for an Iheanacho buy back clause

Sean’s view on that buy back affair Beggers can’t be choosers goes the saying and in a seller’s market for Premier League strikers they can dictate the terms. Personally, I see no problem in buying Iheanacho for £20m with a £30m buy back clause for City.  We are not a top six club and therefore we are […]

Keep calm and don’t panic

West Ham fans appear to have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of transfer business so far this summer but in reality, we are no different from the majority our Premier League rivals. London teams Chelsea, Spurs and Crystal Palace have yet to sign a single player this summer while Arsenal have one just free transfer […]

The West Ham £200m waiting game

We all know that West Ham want two good strikers this summer transfer window, the problem is that most of the Premier League club want proven strikers also. Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea, Southampton, West Brom, Palace, Liverpool and Everton are just some of the clubs on the lookout for a new striker and most are prepared to […]

Hammers blank the big LS option

The ownership of the London Stadium is unlikely to ever change hands while West Ham’s current ‘deal of the century’ remains in place. A senior source close to the club told ClaretandHugh this weekend: “Our deal is so good its better than owning the freehold.” Some West Ham Supporters had believed that the stadium’s public owners […]
