Slav approves another top signing

Slaven-BilicDavid Gold is celebrating a “great week” in the history of West Ham United.

Speaking to the official website the co chairman said: “I know the fans have been anxious to see us put a manager in place but we have had to be measured and timely and made sure that we got the best candidate available and that is what we have done.

“I am expecting exciting things and this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone coming into our football Club as this is most arguably the most exciting season period in the club’s history as we prepare for our final ever season at the Boleyn Ground before we move into the Olympic Stadium.

“No sooner has the ink dried on Slaven’s contract and we have been able to announce our first major signing under the new manager.

““With Slaven’s approval, action has been taken immediately to bring in another quality player and it goes to show the backroom mechanism that we have at West Ham. I certainly hope there are a few more signings to come.

“We are showing our intent and we want just want to put a bit of fear into the top teams who have remained unchallenged. We want them to start looking over their shoulder and see a Club like West Ham who want to challenge.”

  1. I think we lack consistent goalscorers and I would make andre gignac my next target especially as he is on a free

  2. I believe Gignac is the second signing in question. has held/is holding talks today which appear to be going well.

  3. Great stuff,keep them coming,exciting,i have the Irons feel returning to the system.It feels good;)

  4. Since he arrived this man has completely changed West Ham philosophy: exciting names, winning approach, etc. He brings in a breath of fresh air. I predict great things for the future 😉


  5. Happy days. I’m wondering if fatherhood might also have a positive impact on AC? He owes us a decent season.

  6. I hope AC leaves asap… 😉 I think he is useless, heavy, slow and with a high salary.

  7. Carroll aint going anywhere Matte,you will have to bare the burden of him for a while yet 😉

  8. Ahah… Ok, I guess I’ll have to think it over… I’d hoped that he’d followed his fat father and his Brazilian brother… 😀

  9. Another signing,possibly,sounds good.Seems the hippo nightmare is really leaving my mind.Cheers Slav:D

  10. Hope we make a move for Charlie Austin. The guy scored 18 last season (I think) and I believe he would do really well for us. It would also help keep a decent balance of Englishmen and foreign players coming in and to maintain a passionate element throughout the team.

  11. Gignac being free will be great cover for Cole,do we need Song now not sure but if he comes all well and good he will cover Nolan,s place in the squad,
    We need at least 1 if not 2 right sided defenders first,
    We need to replace Jarvis as we only have Alfitano and Valencia that play wide well
    And Downing needs pressure from a good playmaker
    That’s 6 more plus Song and we have to get shot of the dead wood
    Zarate could come back for one place but not Magia

  12. Haha looks like mattefumi has been bored without allardyce to pick so he’s slagging off Carroll now haha I for one think car rolls and good player yeah he’s had his injury problems and he may not be a top reliable goal scorer but he knocks the ball down with head to other people brilliantly there’s no question about that and as we have all seen before he can play a good pass and and he can hit the target with his feet or head anyway I’m over the most on with bilic and pesto obiang two brilliant choices to bring to a brilliant club bring on the new era C O Y I

  13. That’s only my opinion SDIA… You consider him a good player, I consider him an overrated player and I’m not so sure he can play with another forward. When he played with Valencia or Sakho they didn’t play their best football.

    • Matte I agree with you.Carroll is a liability with his glass ankle and is certainly over paid.Will always be number one under a moron like Allardyce but fatso has left the building also.I heard Dean Ashton saying that Charlie Austin should be a priority for the Hammers.I’m excited still.

  14. Ahhh,ignore that w*nker SDIA Matte,he only come on here to sh*t stir.He is a total mug!

  15. Be useful if he was going to slag you Matte if he at least made his comment understandable & not have sentences which make little sense.Probably his two year old kid logged in 😉

  16. Ahah…. Thanks Ty 😉

  17. Has wetpants.com gone down tonight because there are a lot of idiots from there posting tonight,
