Irons chase United striker

Javier-Hernandez-007Javier Hernandez remains a target for West Ham this morning despite reports that Spurs are looking at a summer move for him.

Hernandez – currently on loan at Real Madrid –  has turned down a chance to join MLS side Orlando City as he continues to study his options.

The Hammers are ready to discuss either loan or permanent terms with Manchester United after the 26 year old decided it was to soon to commit to life in America.

The Mexican has a year left on his deal at United and has drifted onto Tottenham’s possible wanted list after manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed he was ready for a squad clear-out.

A West Ham insider claimed: We are interested.”

  1. Would love to sign this guy,but why the hell would he want to come to us as things are.

  2. Again Spuds??? Obiang, Hernandez… Who is the next one? They want our players… maybe we should just give them Nolan and his dad Sam for free… Lol

  3. Doesn’t matter who we are interested in , that jealous , pompous ass who owns the spuds will try and get them ahead of us.
    Levy is a prat and an extremely jealous one to boot.

  4. I do like this kid,would be good to get him.Just a pipe dream though probably.Why should he want to come to a midtable team managed by a dinoasur 😉

  5. He would fit perfectly with Valencia and Sakho add Lee and Carroll to those and we could have enough up front,
    Then we need someone special to provide the goal chances,
    That’s what’s going to cost the big money

  6. Bubs totally agree, while I agree we need another striker, our priority must be a playmaker. You can have all the strikers in the world but if you don’t have a genuine creator in behind the two strikers then you are going to create nothing. The challenge for the club is to find this player. Again Downing is a good player but not in this role, he just does not see the play quickly enough and he loves to take an extra touch. Hope the owners see this. I believe we need a right full, a replacement for Song, wide player to replace Jarvis, playmaker and a striker. And if you add Oxford and Burke to the first team squad we are in great shape. That’s just my opinion.

    • If we would still have Ravel the playmaker’s problem would be solved… 😉

  7. I don’t know if Henry can play right back ?
    I think Poyet can replace Song but I think he could be begging for another season or longer
    when no one else shows interest and Mrs Song won’t go back to Spain,
    He looked more interested yesterday and his passing was crisper,
    I think we need to pay 20to 25 mil for someone very Special we can replace Jarvis with what ever we get for him if Norwich don’t go up Redmond would be a good choice,
    Nolan O,Brien can be covered be Free agents Lee can replace Cole and we can find a free goalie out there so we can afford a Tevez or similar that can unlock defences

  8. Why don’t we pretend to be interested in another player & then let spuds come & buy them, we go & then get the player we really wanted… simples

  9. Yeah lets report we want Mario Balotelli 😉

  10. How about saying we want to give Maiga a new contract?. Even better.. 🙂

  11. Or Nicholas Bendtner,Spuds deserve someone like him 😉

  12. Maybe if we say we are going to give Hippo a new 5yr contract Levy will want him.Dont think even the jealous,sad ******* Levy would fall for that one though.

  13. We can only wish…. 🙂
    “Be careful what you wish for” yeah yeah yeah b#####x to any pundit who says that..!!!

  14. Paul Merson said yesterday if we get rid of Hippo then next season we should fear the worse.This is ofc based on our current form.Which has happened because of the same guy he say we should keep,lol,******** 😉

  15. Yeah sure,like anyone takes any notice of anything Merse says,lol,he makes me laugh & he has entertainment value on SS,but i wouldnt take his opinions on managers too seriously.Yesterday he said Fernandes was throwing money round left right & centre at QPR because he was a Hoops supporter.Too my knowledge Fernandes claims to be an Iron 😉
