DG on Maiga/Zarate

maigaDavid Gold has admitted that both Modibo Maiga and Mauro Zarate will be back at Upton Park this summer.

It had been thought that Maiga may have been retained by Metz where he spent last season on loan but the French club have decided against that.

He is now able to impress a new manager as is the case with Zarate who is currently in Argentina where rumours had started to circulate that he may be set for a return.

However, Gold, using his favoured social network, Twtter, to let fans know the situation said: “Both Maiga and Zarate will be back for pre-season training. dg”

  1. That must be the same as every player still in contract at WH and will probably stay the same until the window opens now that they’re all on holiday. Are there any players who are now of of contract and won’t be back for pre-season Hugh?

  2. Will be a clean slate for everyone now.They have the opportunity to impress,if they dont they will be shown the door i guess.No more favouritism for manager pets anymore i hope.No more Curtis boys being kept at the club because Hippo wanted to give them nice comfortable livings for sitting round on their asses most the time.JJ,Nolan,Jarvis,Demel,etc,etc.No coincidence most of the squad we want to clear out are Allarsyce/Curtis boys.This whole situation stank,especially when i saw Burke signed recently for Curtis.Then what happens,surprise,surprise he starts getting game time.

    • I read one of our favourite guys from pants saying it is none of the fans business who players agent is.Well that is bleedin naive in my eyes.Is it not clear to see that the players still around from the championship are indeed mainly Curtis boys.Is it just coincidence these are the second rate players we are now looking to get out of the door because they dont cut it.To assume this is just coincidence is stupidity of the highest f*cking order.Nolan,Jussi,Jarvis,O’Brien,Carroll,Demel.Sam & Curtis boys,all need to be sold or let go with the exception of Carroll possibly.So yeah i think it is our business.Enough said! 😉

  3. Read in the Sun Carroll wants back to Newcastle.All the nepotists are leaving the good ship WHU. If true it would free up a lot of money.

  4. As with transfer rumours I’d give those wanting to leave rumours a wide berth. From what we’ve read Tony Henry is the transfer man but surely he’d have to liaise with the new manager before comings and goings are sorted out. If players do start to come and go it might suggest a deals been done but the new boss is starting a bit later.

  5. Chicken as far as they are concerned we have no right to breath,what do they think these forums are for giving Hugh recipes for his breakfast ?
    It would be for the best if Tomkins changed his agent and all the rest leave so we can clean ship,
    When the new man arrives I am sure he and Mr Henry will get the ball rolling,until then I wait with baited breath for Blatter to be arrested or am I not allowed an opinion on that either
