West Ham’s £200 million dynamic duo

If Declan Rice is worth £100m then Tomas Soucek has got to worth a similar valuation.

The Potato salad king scored another two goals last night taking his season tally to seven which is not bad for a defensive midfielder signed for £18m from the Czech Republic.

Of course the £200m duo are not for sale at any price but performances like that will bring admirers from the top six clubs in the Premier League.

That would usually be a problem for West Ham but we are now a top six club ourselves with the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal all beneath the Hammers so they can forget it!

West Ham’s young captain Declan Rice posted a photo on social media of the duo from the dressing room after the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park titled ‘Potato Salad and Rice’

The team spirit, comradery and togetherness is there for all to see and you can see how much the win meant to the players after the final whistle was blown. We could be at the start of something special should we dare to dream.

  1. Brilliant – Potato salad and Rice! A dish most Clubs would love to relish – just need a couple of hot potatoes and maybe a bit of garlic, ginger (wish he was still around!) and chilies to make us hot for the top!

  2. £200m..?? Behave
    Rice is good but not £100m good & Soucek’s value is no more than £30m.
    Invaluable to us Hammers but lets not get carried away.

  3. Regardless of the hypothetical value of the players, I hope they stay at West Ham for a few years. We’re not going to challenge the Top 6 regularly if we sell our better players.
    Anyway, I am getting quite giddy with us so high in the table.

  4. Funny to think, that the players that we missed out on (and some supporters were screaming for) are distant memories and will never come close to being as good as Soucek.
    Remember Sander Berge? or Gedson Fernandes? ROTFL
    As for Dekkers? I think the best thing for him is to stay here as captain with Soucek and form an unbelievable partnership, so that when he eventually leaves this club (I hope NEVER)…it will be as a Top-level number one in his position.
    What a Dominant Forceful pairing… Both of them are freakish in their abilities and without a shadow of a doubt, you are looking at around £200M for the pair of them (NOT that we are looking to sell them Anytime soon if Ever). Look at what Chelsea spent on a few wasters who haven’t the drive or force of character to impose themselves on a game…..COYI

  5. a bit gushy 🙂
    Players are worth what someone is willing to pay and someone willing to sell for.

    Would you sell soucek for 30m? Because it wouldn’t be difficult to find a bunch of clubs willing pay that.

    IF diop was 50m after a decent year , Id say soucek is worth more than 30m now.

  6. …and that’s the beauty of football, it’s ALL about opinions and what clubs are prepared to pay for a player ☺️
