Hope in signing 3 players by the end of the week

jack215 year old West Ham Youth Supporters Chairman, Jack Sullivan has apologised for a lack of transfer updates but is hopeful three players are now moving in the right direction and should be complete by the end of the week. Two of those players are thought to be Alex Song on a permanent deal and Carl Jenkinson on a season long loan from Arsenal while the third player, most likely a centre back is more of a mystery.

Last night Jack tweeted “Sorry about the lack of news, but 3 hopeful players are all moving in the right direction! Hopeful will be done by the end of the week.”

However one Hammers fan politely advised Jack ‘Dude don’t put a timescale on it. It’ll only come back to bite you’ of which Jack replied ‘Very True’

Six days ago the club’s Boleyn Β insider revealed “I can exclusively reveal that the Club are close to making two more signings and hope to announce them in the next 72 hours.” Β  144 hours we are none the wiser.

boleyninsiderThe Boleyn Insider revealed yesterday Β “I believe that one of the Club’s major targets has all but agreed to join and should put pen to paper when he returns from holiday.My understanding is that the player has agreed a 12-month loan deal”

That is thought to be Carl Jenkinson who took a holiday after returning from the European Under 21 championships

The Club’s ITK went on to say “My sources have told me that a move for another summer target has unfortunately been delayed after the player picked up an injury and is expected to face a spell on the sidelines.I believe that the Club will not consider making a move until the injury has cleared up.”

That player is almost certainly Alex Song who has been seen on Chadwell Heath receiving treatment for an injury.

Finally the Insider dispels reports linking us with Alvaro Arbeloa saying:

“There have also been reports in Spain linking West Ham United with a move for Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa, but I have been told there is no truth in those rumours.”

  1. Three new rumours by the end of the week then! Great!!

    No I’d imagine and hope this is song, Amha..mohammad.. can’t remember the name of that CB from Monaco, and Cabaye!

  2. I think all the CB targets start with a vowel and end in A…..oh apart from Dragovic,sorry not much help,I’m going for a kip lol

  3. Another ’72hr’ alert where nothing happens,lol,soon we will be getting 72hr alerts for the next time DG is going for a dump πŸ˜‰

  4. Idiots putting timescales on things,especially went it hasnt been backed up with actions.I never tell my missus 4hrs because i just know it aint going to happen,lol.Actions speak louder than words,wind ya neck in Jack.

  5. Hahaha… I always tell my missus 20 seconds, so when I break the minute barrier she’s over the moon!!

  6. ahah… 13 new players within the next 72 weeks… don’t go to sleep… loool

  7. Building a squad we can be excited about, need to remember the transfer window has only been open for 7 days & the merry go round has only just started.
    Give youg Jack a break he is just an excitable 15 yr old, he wont have been involved in an deals & is only told what daddy wants to be “leaked out”. Saying that, i agree he should shut the #### up until he has any real news. πŸ˜€

  8. I would sooner hear it when there name is on a contract,
    Write some other stuff Sean all that happens is we all start talking about something else anyway
    Do a piece on the 20 second Norway time limit,or how long it take for your new shirt to arrive after it was ordered ( a lot longer than 20 bloody seconds)

    • And when it does getting delivered, you realise that the sponsors name & umbro on the sleeves are cheap & you know after a few washes that they will start to crack & peel off like the last time we had Umbro with XL on our chest. Love the shirt though & will wear it with pride all season & then carefully add it to the centenary shirt.

  9. Jack Sullivan’s column on the WHU website is clearly ghost written. Let’s just say they possess a maturity of English language his Twitter postings sorely lack!
    As for the Boleyn Insider, it’s an anonymous club written column to dispel the rubbish or written by the media. Not a bad idea.

    As I wrote when we were waiting for news of Payet’s signing……I’ll only believe it when we see him in a photo wearing the shirt. Sam now applies to Jenkinson, Song, Austin, Remy and any other potential new squad member.

    This are so many sources such as this page…… Claret&Hugh seems to be about the best.

    • Apologies for the typos in my hastily written posting above…….maybe I should’ve asked someone to ghost write it for me!!

      • Really could have done without the ‘Sam’ one instead of ‘Same’,i came over all faint when i saw that,lol πŸ˜€
