End of the line beckons Hammers cult hero

Adrian’s days as the Hammers Number One keeper look well and truly numbered with the club’s move for Lukasz Fabianski.

The trustworthy Wales on Line has reported the Hammers have had an offer knocked back for the Polish international player who wants out of Swansea and has just a year left on his current deal.

The relegated Swans are playing hardball on the fee for ‘Fab’ but we are certain to return with a second bid for the player and double up with another for their central defender Alfie Mawson.

The Hammers are determined to start reshaping the squad from the back and although Adrian has a year left on his deal the Hammers  will listen to offers once they have filled the position.

Adrian – a cult hero with many Hammers fans – has made it clear he isn’t ready to play second fiddle any longer at the London Stadium after spells behind Darren Randolph and Joe Hart and rather than have an unhappy player on their hands the club will allow him to move on.

  1. Absolutely ridiculous,imo.Fabianski is no better than Adrian and,if it happens, we will need two GKs!!
    Keep Adrian and recruit the best young keeper available.

  2. I am with geo, just how much better than Adrian are we being led to believe Fabianski is ? If we sign him & lose Adrian, it will be a retrograde step in my opinion.

  3. Adrian is a better keeper than Fabianski.

  4. I wouldn’t worry we are jumping from player to player at the min with no end product so by tomorrow the headline will read ..fabianski and mawson is long way of or that Sullivan has offer 2mil for the pair and a free lunch ..when it comes to transfers we are a laughing stock ..nothing has changed YET so if they have the same clowns conducting the transfer business as the last 2 windows it is not looking good…. Adrian will.want out now and with manny out we have less players than when we started our business ..

  5. Come on ? Are we honestly to believe the new management have sanctioned these moves? If so, then it’s the same old same, as previous manager’s? ( they put up with Sullivan’s call on all dealings in the transfer market) as every fan knows in truth and we only go for bargains and loans that Sullivan likes a punt on ?? For Christ’s sake these two could not stop Swansea going down? What’s gonna be different with us????

  6. It’s being reported by the local paper and trust me they are 100 pc more trustworthy than the nationals so yes we believe it

  7. I thought Husillos was in charge of recruitment and Sullivan was keeping well away after all the past fiascos in the transfer market?

  8. Adrian and Fabianski together, I’d be well chuffed with that.

  9. Fredericks was a Sully signing and so are these Swansea bargain basement attempts. They reek of it. Please tell me Hugh you don’t believe SUllys latest bull about taking a back seat? A leopard and all that.

    • Agree mate, certainly recommended by Sully, I think Pastore, Pavon etc are more likely Pellegrini. anyone with a vaguely English name or history Sullivan. If Sullivan is serious, he will get the deals done for the high quality players, Fabianski is a decent keeper but when Heaton is available not even the best or cheapest choice, I am not sure I will trust any of these transfer rumours until Pellegrini is back in England. I hope we can get business done early but if the players are at the World Cup best to wait until its over.

  10. Adrian is as good as, if not better than Fabianski, the other advantage is that Adrian obviously loves playing for us and is loved equally by the fans, it would be madness to lose him. Can’t we have a vote Hugh?

  11. It seems they have got their ‘FA Premier League Manager’ computer game out again to see who they want, but they don’t seem to consider who they can Get! will they have enough in their Piggy Bank?

    Adrian is again being treated Badly! he is as good as the others mentioned! look what happened even with Hart!

    No wonder other teams fans laugh at us, we are ran Amateur!

  12. Heaton is 32 years old. how long will he stay at the top? Butland, however is only 25 and can’t be happy playing in the champo. Must be worth a phone call.

  13. I don’t believe it. If true it would be crazy. Adrian proved he was as good ( I say better) than Hart and I see no advantage in Fabianski. The Swans player wants to play at the top level anyway whereas Adrian is delighted to play for us. Anyone coming in should be No.2 to Adrian.
