Hammers deny interest in third Gunners target


Oxlade-ChamberlainRegular speculation that the Irons are keen on a third Arsenal player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been denied by the club.

With the club already known to be interested in Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, there has been frequent mention of Oxlade-Chamberlain as a possible target

But ClaretandHugh has learned there is no chance of the club moving for the former England international with a source saying: “There’s no interest in that area.

“For reasons unknown we seem to get associated with all sorts of players and Oxlade Chamberlain has certainly been one of them.

“But we will not be making any moves in that direction. However, we continue to watch developments on the Gunners front in other areas with interest.”

    Stan The Man it is my understanding from reading a tranfer window moves article just yesterday that of the 20 clubs in the PL 13 of the 20 have signed 1 or 0 players so far this summer.

    I find the angry comments about the lack of signings flabbergasting but im sure every club has the same type of fans shouting and screaming on their own football forums.I just wish we didnt have them.They are cringe.

    It is all so boring …X can’t sign for us until they have brought in Y from Lyon. Lyon won’t sell until they get Z to leave Barcelona. Z won’t move from Barcelona becuause he has to look after the kids in the afternoons when his missus is out doing her cleaning job. Zzzzzzzzz

    It is getting so bad I even watched a game of Rugby Union yesterday. The refs let em get away with murder in that game. I saw at least 30 blatant handballs before I fell asleep lol.

    Talking of x’s I have just seen that exwhuemployee has had to deactivate his twitter because of death threats from our supporters over the transfer of Oyereku… what is it with some morons that support football clubs, like he was responsible somehow….

  • Radai Lama says:

    Death threats over an 8 mill player most of them would have never heard of before.Yeah well worth a death threat or two.Bellends 😁

    • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

      yeah I would like to think they are 18 – 25 year olds but having seen some of the trouble at our grounds over the years it would be a guess, this is the trouble with the instant messaging generation where everyone demands instant gratification if that is the right term…

    If we don’t sign someone soon or do anything positive it will be another window disaster .
    Paint it how you like but the cake is being sliced up and we don’t even have a knife to cut a piece for ourselves . Loads of promises of money being available to get ahead and sign some big players is starting to look like a joke . Loaning out our Youngsters is also a bit hard to understand . Watched Germany pound us ( u21 ) yesterday and they fully deserved Thier win . In Germany the younger players get a chance in the league ( that’s why they were so dominant ) whilst here our semi-chairman says no chance .
    It’s starting to look like another season of trying to stay in touch instead of pulling ahead through the gears . If something good happens over the next few weeks then I apologize
    But for the moment I am feeling pessimistic . Bilic needs something to build with . We the fans need something to cheer . None Of which seems forthcoming . Surely we can’t keep missing out !! . But according to Hugh we are being impossible and impatient .
    We haven’t had a single commitment from any player who has expressed a desire to come to the LS ,,, why ? . Apart from Zabaleta . Sitting on the bench and earning fortunes doesn’t bother today’s players, don’t be fooled .

    You are being impossible & impatient Kevin.But we all love you really 😂😂

    Given how annoying the pop ups are becoming on this site, maybe Hugh can donate some of the income streams towards transfers?

    Not like you to be pessimistic Kev.
