Hart signs but no option to buy


Manchester City keeper Joe Hart has officially signed for West Ham on season long loan but there is no official option to buy the shot stopper at the end of the loan period.

The Hammers are thought to funding fifty percent of the England keepers £170,000 per week wages meaning we invest around £4m in the 30-year-old.

And speaking to WHUFC.com he said: “It’s important for me to play football and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome.

“To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I’m really looking forward to the season.

I’ve always loved the Club. I think you’ll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn’t love the club.

It’s got something about it, it’s got a lot history and I’ve always loved playing against West Ham. We’ve moved into London Stadium and we’ve got Slaven in charge who I’ve spoken to and I’ve always enjoyed as a manager.

He obviously did a good job with Croatia and he’s doing a good job here, so to get the opportunity to come here, it wasn’t really a hard decision.”

  1. Fingers crossed randy goes , and harts a success 🙂 his bullshyite comments defo ain’t 🙂

  2. Youll be surprised. we tend to have a nice relationship with city and outside of london a lot of teams and fans quite like us.

  3. Name them dannyboy ? Because everywhere I’ve been since the seventy,s call us cockney cu##s , pikeys , especially the mob down the road to them, then there’s the O/s petition ,
    Every news writer going and the bias pundits on MOTD , and not forgetting every ref in the country proven by stats as well , etc etc etc:-) I think you’re statement is a bit wide of the mark , anyway he looks like a sherbet dip with piles 🙂 🙂

  4. You must mix with the wrong people Laz 😁
    I got loads of mates who have nothing against us from around the country.probably because most of them know we are no threat too them in the league 😂😂

    • Lovely people rads on the first part 🙂 didn’t Sean say as much in his interview on talk sport about the other points raised 🙂 I to have friends in mancs land and family in dustbin lid country who would tell you different to you’re pals 🙂 good and bad in all aspects of environment , I was in the building game like you and my work took me all over the country and I can tell you southerners are not liked but tell you you’re OK to you’re face,
      But it is more politically correct today , like going to Wimbledon eating popcorn and a prawn sandwich , or maybe even the OS 🙂 🙂 as for polls demon as with friends , you’re talking minority not the masses , polls aren’t allowed to put a point over 🙂 but I do remember it ! None of it matters anyway hart is still a hand shandy to me 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. I remember a poll – admittedly before all the bad feeling whipped up by the stadium subsidy accusations – where we were the most popular ‘second’ team among other fans.

  6. Most of the fans i know have no ill feeling towards us.i think you will find its the noisy idiots who swear and curse about us.But we have the same fans who do the same about other clubs.
