Nolan move on the cards

nolanKevin Nolan will be allowed to move on in the summer should the club receive a “sensible offer” for the captain.

The club have decided that the skipper – 33 in June -should be given the opportunity to grab one more decent deal after his service to the club as he no longer fits the youthful profile the club requires.

He has of course been at the centre of long term abuse from the Twitter army and at the beginning last month said: ““I have been considering my future, without a shadow of a doubt.

“I am not one who wants to sit here on the bench, I won’t continue to do it. If you are not good enough for one club you move on and prove to someone else that you are.”

The club has now decided that he will definitely be allowed to move on with a source declaring: “He has a year left and it would be only fair to him. There will  be a fee involved and we will listen to sensible offers.”

  1. hugh i hope that this is right no offense to nolan but hes too slow for the league and at time’s its costs us goal scoring opportunities in most matches.

    • Agree everything round him is at a slow pace but there again so is Noble. Now he’s lost his goal knack then his value to the team has plummeted. At best a sub….but that doesn’t ever work now. Good captain, possibly a good coach but time to move away from our 1st team.

  2. A sensible offer? They should just be happy to get his 50k a week off the wage bill.

  3. No, Nolan no please… Kevin De Assis Moreria Dos Santos Anthony Nolan (aka Nolaninho), no! lol
    I try to lighten the load … 😉


  4. Thanks for that Matte,i never knew his full name.You are a mine of info,lol,what the hell is a sensible offer for him,why cant we just let him go with no fee,what we get for him will be pennies in the scheme of things.The wages saved alone is good enough if we can put them towards a more dynamic midfielder which we are crying out for.

  5. Yep,time he moved on,did well for us for a couple of seasons,but now he is more a hinderance to the team than a help,which to be fair isnt his fault,if he is picked to play then he must play.Allardyces loyalty towards him has left his time with us a little tainted & it isnt really Nolans fault imo.If he goes i really dont know how SpearmintHippo will survive next year if he stays 😉

  6. Could Allardyce cope at West Ham without having Nolan around as skipper and well trusted player sure to irritate fans for being chosen over other more skilled teammates time and time again ?
    I suppose if Nolan were to let go it might be a massive indication Allardyce might follow suit.

  7. A pretty predictable comment to be fair. Nolan will either seek a 2/3 year deal elsewhere for plus £30k a year or see out his £50k pa contract. I predict he will go to MLS.

  8. Cope in the sense of the special bond between the two. Look at Nolan’s career as a player and Allardyce’s managing career and then look how rarely their paths HAVEN’T crossed.

  9. I’m sure he will cope Hamburg, I’m sure they both will but who knows.

  10. So what are we going to buy with the tenner we receive ?
    I don’t think we will receive a offer other than we will take him off your hands for nothing and you can save his wages and I would grab that before we are stuck with his wages for another year,
    He has been a great captain for us not this season but time has passed him by,
    Have a great life elsewhere Nolan but you must go,
    That Hugh would receive 95% vote at least

  11. we need sam to go

  12. As usual sibbo straight to the point,
    But his name is Kevin,Sam is his dad you know the one chewing the gum laying down,
    Only joking sibbo nice input

  13. I doubt there will be another club paying him 50K a week for even one year. He may go for free, but only if West Ham continue to pay him between 20-30K a week for the remaining year of his deal with us.

  14. Sorry we will be stuck with him Hamburg it said sensible offer,
    But agree with you Bolton might take him back but our best chance will be if BFS goes he will take him with him,
    The best fit would be Leeds or Nottingham Forest

  15. If we all put in £1.00 that should be a sensible offer..
    or an offer of a free taxi ride to anywhere he wants away from east london..

  16. At last! Somebody has seen the light!!!.is he the one that has been holding them back??
