Bilic: “I don’t expect any more ‘exciting’ signings”


Slaven Bilic has declared he doesn’t expect any more exciting West Ham signing in the current transfer window.

He told the official site:“I don’t expect any more ‘exciting’ signings because you don’t want to be overbooked in certain positions.

You have to respect your players and those who are number two, because you don’t want them to be number three in their position.”

“You only need them in case you have many, many injuries, but of course you can’t think like that. If something extraordinary happens, and it can happen because we’ve done really well without spending crazy money.

We got four players, one on a free, Joe on loan, we spent good money on Chicharito and Arnautovic, but also Havard is gone to Hoffenheim, Randy has gone, Enner has gone to Mexico and Ash to Middlesbrough.

But he added: “I presume if something extraordinary happens in the market, then hopefully we’re still going to be able to do it, if necessary.”

  1. Well I bloody well do!!

  2. Ditto john , 1 in for 1 out ? Do they not talk ??

    • I reckon West Ham are playing the mis-information game really well Laz. And before the moaners complain about them lying to us, you complained about them broadcasting everything before so stop ya moaning!!

      I can’t decide if they’ll stick with a £20/30M spend and risk pssing a few fans off for not spending enough or spend the whole £50/60M just to be seen to be flashing the cash. I dunno I’m not sure I care as I like the idea of a few of the academy fitting in.

  3. Yes shipping more out and those 2 striker we were promised w AC well being AC and Fletch gone. Sahko is fit but with is back can’t over play him and they don’t want ti play Chicarito all the time. So someone like Perez on the cheap would do well different option and w Feghouli still supposedly going rather see Snod.
    But I like Ryad Boudebouz and great #10 and can play RW to cover Antonio as well as CF and CM for £14m not bad….. Or were linked wit Maximilian Arnold would be great with Noble Injured and slowing down unless give Cullen a chance or a CB unless give Rice a real chance w our injury rate.
    Perez Ryad and especially Max Arnold are exciting to me.

  4. We made a good but if money this summer as well John would love to see the youngsters given a **** but not sure if Bilic trusts under 23s w Lanzini youngest player at 24 and Ginge and Fonte to be 34 in fee months Rice as been great thrh season and in preseason and Cullen think is great. Holland imoressed stunningly but LW covered well like to see him loaned to Championship or Bundesliga

    • Dunno JRS tho I think some of the youngsters have put themselves in a position where Slav can’t ignore them.

  5. Ffs Jr’s , get rid of that enigma machine and invest in a tablet 😂😂

  6. We desperately need more signings we’re short of bodies throughout the Squad. More quality, more power, more strength – you can’t have too much!

  7. the happy pills are beginning to wear off I see

  8. Feghouli not mentioned as being sold and still hasn’t signed on the dotted line in Turkey then ? Good news for those of us that like him and think he could be a good player for us.

  9. We need more squad players we have let 8\9 go and signed 4 one of which is a loan ..good signings but we really haven’t spent that much at all
