Pedro-Obiang-Sampdoria_2835036 (1)Hammers target Pedro Obiang continues to attract interest from around Europe despite West Ham reportedly agreeing a deal in principle with the Sampdoria midfielder.

The two clubs are said to have agreed a fee atย 7.5 million Euros (ยฃ5.4m) plus performance related add onโ€™s for the 23 year old but it appears he attracting new interest from across Europe after Spurs were linked with him last week which might push his price up by another one million Euros.

  1. Comes or doesnt,im not fussed.Bored of the summer speculation.End up with thousands of names,4 or 5 will arrive.Wake me up n August & let me know whos signed then.This rabid dog is tired of Hippo,i need a rest ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. First of all let’s get rid of the Fat Man and then the other things will follow almost automatically.
    ahah… This mission’s primary objective is to eliminate the Hippo and put him back where he belongs: Africa, one way ticket.


  3. Let’s just print a list of people we are interested in fax them to the Spuds and every other club in the world,take a month off and wait and see what’s left when all the best have gone,
    Then we can all take a break pick a side from what’s left and hope for some scraps from the big table same as with our manager,
    Then the board can get us to the new stadium at minimum cost and sell us to the first Arab or Asian family that want a foothold in East London,
    Mrs Brady can walk away with her big bonus she probably has in her contract,
    The 2 Daves can jet off to Spain to decide weather it’s Monaco to Bermuda for there choice of tax haven,
    We can watch another Man City ( death of the true fans welcome prawn sandwiches)
    RIP Westham Utd or
    P 45 BFS today not next week

  4. 4 or 5 won’t do considering we will most probably lose Jussi, Nolan, Demel, Song, Cole, Maiga, maybe Jenkinson and Zarate. I reckon we need around ten new players of varying price and quality, including 2 or 3 marquee signings.
    Rumour has it that outside of the big clubs we may be one of the biggest spenders this summer in the transfer market.

  5. Hamburg they are not going to spend more than ยฃ20 mil and will get some of that back selling Nolan and Jarvis,and don’t bank on them not selling Valencia or Carroll to bank roll the lot,
    Read between the lines out goings min
    Sell in 2 years income massive
    Fans who cares a sext
    Or they would rid them selves of our wooden horse (BFS )now

  6. ahaha… welcome back Bubs, you felt a bit down… we need a battle plan and you are our General… ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. I read that the other chairmen are monitoring us this Summer,to see if we plan to go large,lay down a marker for the move to the OS or just pussy foot about doing little.Will be an interesting summer i believe lads or dogs,whichever you are these days.Not sure if you are stil rabid or cured,lol

    • ahah… lol

      • Dont worry Matte,if you are Rabid Dogs they are Randy Dogs,they all start panting & wagging their tails sometimes when their pretty little blonde turns up,lmao.Im joking of course before war breaks out again ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Matte the plan is quite simple we start with a quick desicion on who is our new manager,
    We get shot of the dead wood,
    We go into Europe with the approach of winning and going as far as we can to bring in more money to improve the team,
    We invest in good players not also runs no one else wants,
    The fans unite under the new leader and NO ONE TALKS ABOUT BFS AGAIN
    But is that pie in the sky?
