Hammers confirm squad of twenty-three

West Ham have submitted a squad of twenty-three to the Premier League which has been published.

The club has taken the unusual approach of naming nine homegrown players, one above what’s required in a squad of twenty-five.

The nine homegrown players include Craig Dawson on loan for the season and two Academy players in the form on Nathan Trott and Nathan Holland.

The club also published a list of 43 Academy players/scholars which includes Declan Rice who although 21 doesn’t require a full squad place this season.

The Hammers have two remaining squad positions that could be used for free transfers or further additions in January in just ten weeks time.

  1. Impressive. I can’t see any glaring holes or deficiencies anywhere.
    Prophets of Doom were telling us how we were going to struggle if we get injuries. However, It looks like that eventuality is covered. If we get 3 CF and 3 CB out (like we did when Sam Allardyce had to juggle) we might see a bit of invention from management. This time we have no Financial Fair Play limits to prevent us from drafting in one or two players of experience to fill gaps. I’m happy with this squad and team.
    This time – more than any other time. Strap in. Here we go.

  2. Maybe if we call Haller by one of his other names “Teddy” he can invoke the spirit of Sheringham !!!

  3. Bad news for anyone wanting to name their kid after Masuaka!

  4. I am happy with this – Rice will obviously play and Ben Johnson can play so we are not as light as some people say – and this situation is much better than the situation at clubs like Palace and Fulham where they have players on tehir books who are now not part of teh squad

    • I actually think Johnson can be cover for Masuaku. Imo he looks better on left in PL as inverted then as RB. Thought he has done well at both, he seems really comfortable at LB. He hasn’t played LWB but has the pace & could cut in & find passes

  5. 4 Keepers.Not a bad squad & I hope Trott gets a few chances he needs to work on distribution & foot work but at Wimbledon he made some great saves was topping the league & only lost his spot bc they brought in 30yo free gabt last 10 games or so.
    Anang thought I’m very surprised he didn’t get a loan, he waited a year to get a permit & came in & took Trotts spot. I think he could be better personaly, he seems to be better with feet & is big lad. Thought Championship clubs wanted him & even League 1 or 2 would of given him great experience. Then young Hegyi has played above his age level for a while. We will need a new Keeper imo next summer, I don’t trust Randolph for #1 if we want to progress & Fabianski has a year left is still good but hasn’t looked quite himself since inury. Be great of one of teh academy boys could feel that role.
    On Holland I would of rather kept Cullen bc I think he would of done a job for us but glad to see him make his start for Anderlecht & played the full 90. Not a bad squad & I just hope Moyes actually does what he talks about, giving youth chances, developing redbull etc
    **Ashby doing well with Scotland U21s & some forget he was a CB too but moved over to RB so he could suit the back 3 system perfectly.
