The player Bilic would have bought if he’d had the cash

Slaven Bilic has poured contemot on the amount of cash being splashed in the transfer market dubbing fees as “crazy” but has admitted he would have signed Paul Pogba if he could have.

Valencia to own Lime Street and Irons carrier bags arrive at Big Sam’s England training headquarters

ClaretandHugh blogger Pete Ellis takes a quirky sideways look at the Irons week that was! TEARS OVER VALENICA! Valencia has moved to Everton on deadline day, causing many a fan to shed a tear (on merseyside).

Sam keeps Antonio on sidelines

Shirt ban is top news

The decision to ban shirts of teams – other than our own and those of the opponents on the day at The London Stadium – is excellent news and has eliminated potential flashpoints for trouble. I could barely believe early reports CandH were receiving that shirts of other clubs were being seen around the ground. Why […]

Payet makes his return

Dimi Payet made his comeback from injury as he arrived as a second half sub for Manchester United’s Anthony Martial in tonight’s friendly international against Italy. The French are currently leading 2-1 via goals from Martial and Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Payet has made just one contribution so far. He saw a right footed shot […]

Gold so proud of this Iron

Exclusive David Gold couldn’t be happier that his prophecy that Michail Antonio would be calle up for England has come true. He told ClaretandHugh last week that he believed the Hammers sensation was a perfect Sam Allardyce player and so it has turned out with the former club boss calling him into his first squad. […]
