Hammers: “Klopp hasn’t said no to us”


KloppWest Have have this afternoon firmly denied that Jurgen Klopp has turned down their advance to make him the club’s new manager.

The Daily Mirror reported this morning that the German had turned us down after we made our first move last week.

But a top insider told us a few minutes ago: “ClaretandHugh’s intital report that he has been approached and has promised us an answer after studying his options is correct.

“Jurgen has told us that he expects to make his decision by mid-May and is currently weighing varying options. West Ham’s chiefs love him.

“He is a top class manager with the type of personality which would fit our fans to perfection – he’s a great guy.

“Yes it’s a longshot and if there was a book running on it he’d be priced at around 33/1 but he’s an unpredictable charaacter so who knows – we could find ourselves with one of the world’s best managers.

“What is entirely wrong is that he has told us he won’t sign. He’s still in the frame with various others.”

    Although I have had quite enough of BFS, I find this conversation disrespectful towards our current manager. Let’s atleast sack him before we talk about his replacement.

  • TysonM says:

    He isnt going to be sacked though is he,more than likely his contract will be run down.Speculation is bound to be about,cant stop that can you.Its in the papers & on tv all the time.Sam can live with it,im sure the 12m approx he has had in the last 4yrs will soften the blow 😉

  • HamburgHammer says:

    Brady has come out and said nothing has changed, they’ll sit down with Allardyce at the end of the season, discuss transfer targets, what kind of positions he’d like to strengthen etc.
    If Allardyce stays on at West Ham I predict a riot. Looting and public disorder all the way from Green Street down to the Olympic Park. It won’t be pretty…LOL

  • mattefumi el loco says:

    disprespectul… yeah, please give me a definition of his attitude on the bench, his pathetic football (people pay for this crap), his excuses, etc.

    Sorry, you’re aright, he shows great respect, poor rich Sam…


  • rickthehammer63 says:

    Brady is the new Thatcher & not for turning oh well I feel sorry for those who renewed season tkts as G & S will be laughing counting there cash then at end of season were give Sam a new contract as the others turned us down

  • bubs says:

    Whu76 you posted on the wrong site any respect for BFS went along time ago when he disrespected us with his weekly shambles at being a manager,
    Why come on here trying to bait a response from the majority when you can go on other sites and become an instant hero,( you get a free Hippo onesie as well )
    Mrs B is just sticking to the press release comments of old it’s better than no comment
    Would not want to be sued for constructive dismissal would we.
    The converted are growing

    • mattefumi el loco says:

      ahahahhaah… lol … I love “you get a free Hippo onesie as well”…

  • StingRay Stewart says:

    Haha,Hamburg you make me laugh,lol,on wetpants you are Mr.Sensible then when you come here you start talking about riots & looting,haha,funny 😀

    • mattefumi el loco says:

      ahahahah… yes but there, as Rads said before, you have to respect the Godfathers… you have to be quit and respectful…


      • StingRay Stewart says:

        Lol,i found it funny because i could imagine Hamburg sat there singing the Clash song ‘ I Predict A Riot’ as he was tapping away at the keyboard 😀

        • HamburgHammer says:

          Isn’t that song by the Kaiser Chiefs though…?

          • Rads Can Take No More Samasaurus.com says:

            Yeah it is,Sting is getting old,he thinks every song comes from a group in the 70s 😀

  • Rads Can Take No More Samasaurus.com says:

    Hamburg is Jeckyl & Hyde,the Professor of Football there & Che Guevarea here.He is a revolutinary really,who surpresses his views when in the company of Sam Fans,lol 😉

    • mattefumi el loco says:

      lol 😉

    • HamburgHammer says:

      I know it’s meant tongue in cheek, but you wouldn’t want to know the number of times I got carried away and got into some nasty and pointless ‘discussions’ with fierce Allardyce loyalists. I’m not shying away from that at all.
      I just hope for the sake of our fanbase that we will soon have a united fanbase again and I can only see that happening with a new manager.
      If Allardyce stays, I’ll resign myself to checking our results on teletext.

      • StingRay Stewart says:

        I know you do get involved in arguements with them Hamburg,i have seen it,lol,we are just having a little fun.It gets boring sometimes going round & round in circles talking about the same issues, ‘will sam get sacked’,’who should we buy’,’who should we sell’.We need to escape from it sometimes with a little bit of fun.Normally it is Matte & his Bella Donnas in Italy we discuss because he is a gigolo 😀

        • mattefumi el loco says:

          ahahaah… thanks for “gigolo” Stew, but I’m not a gigolo… I had and I have my adventures… I’m like Sam with the girls: I use sophisticated excuses. lol


  • oldgit says:

    Hold on, hold on. Who is telling porkies then? Hugh says we’ve made our move whereas Brady says no we haven’t.

  • bubs says:

    No making a move on Mrs B Matte she belongs to only one man and is probably looking to buy a condo in America right this minute,
    The vision of BFS in his budgie smugglers drinking Del Boy cocktails sucking Mrs B,s toe
    Why behind him young Kevin’s building little castles in his Newcastle Bermuda shorts,
    While A C is rocking his baby buggy,with his legs in plaster have played 2 half games in 2016,
    The 2 Daves sitting there yacht counting there money,
    We are top of the league with Klopp as manager we just beat Chelsea 7-0 3 goals from Messi,2 goals from Tevez and 1 goal a piece from Neymar and Oxford
    Then a loud noise wakes me up ,

  • mattefumi el loco says:

    Ahagahaha…ok no mrs B. Kevin could be my next prey, but I don’t wanna break up his marriage… Lol


  • mattefumi el loco says:

    Funny that West Ham and Milan (I was a ticket holder) have a woman leading with the same nickname: Mrs B and Lady B (Barbara Berlusconi)… B is in the cards for me… Ops BFS… I take back everything I said…


  • stubbo says:

    Well obviously either Hugh or his source is talking rubbish, or Brady is bare-faced lying.

    So which is it Hugh?

  • TysonM says:

    Lol,well she is heading into politics soon,she is practising her devious lying methods on us,see if she is good enough to move into politics yet 😉

  • StingRay Stewart says:

    For sure,people in power in any walk of life dont mind telling the odd porky if it gets them where they need to be at the end of it.Most of them would swear the sun was the moon if it got a deal done or something kept under the radar.If she says there has been no contact with whichever manager it might be you can almost guarantee it means there has.I never take anything at face value that comes from a board.They will say whatever needs saying to get the job done 😉

  • @stubbo I think u need to ask yoursel the question : how much of what I write has proved correct and how much of what she has said has been genuine 😉

  • WHU647580 says:

    There’s probably a simple reason why he hasn’t said “no”, possibly because he hasn’t been asked.

  • whambam says:

    He has said no but the David’s thought he was asking for more money
    David’s, ” would you except ‘eight’ 100k to sign?”
    Klipperty, “Nein”

  • TysonM says:

    Nice to have a visit from the wetpantstillidies kingpin whu647580,lol,to give us a real pearl of wisdom nobody has surely considered themselves.But thanks for the scoop,i somehow feel like the world is a better place now;)
