The Real Reason Moyes Has No Money

The best laid plans of mice and men are there to be exposed by the trials and tribulations that life has prepared for them, an expression loosely taken from the Robert Burns' poem 'To a Mouse', might well be used as a paraphrase to explain West Ham United's lack of activity in the transfer market, with the club seemingly unable to even raise 'small' sums like £2 Million to invest in lower league players such as Antonee Robinson, which was the sum Sheffield United signed the full back for from Wigan who have gone in to administration.

Reasons To Be Careful & Cheerful

Now it is common knowledge that Hammers are essentially broke, it would be assumed that the media would concentrate on the 'elite' and their acquisitions and the promoted clubs with their currently untainted aspirations. From a news point of view, this 'phoney' transfer phase is usually spread out for a couple of months as players and bless them, their agents, take a break from playing and concentrate on holidaying and making money.

Albian Ajeti's In To Celtic

West Ham United's Albian Ajeti is currently under going a medical ahead of a permanent £5 Million deal to join serial Scottish Champions Celtic.

He's Gotze Be Avoided

As David Moyes attempts to restructure the mostly 'Pellegrinophile' squad that he has inherited, he has clearly stated his desire to bring in young, hungry players who have 'value added' as they progress, instead of ageing has beens or players who's careers are on a downward spiral. So recent media reports of Hammers being interested in free agent Mario Gotze seem way of the mark.

Will They Never Learn? Shock At New Antonio Offer!

Let's make no mistake, without Michail Antonio's goals West Ham would more than likely have been relegated from the Barclays Premier League this season, the 30 year old as just enjoyed the best season of his career at the club and is moving in to the final year of his contract, one which however has an option for the club to extend the deal by a further twelve months. 'Big Mick' currently earns a not too disrespectful £65,000 per week, OK it is not in the stratospherically insane bracket as Yarmolenko and particularly Jack Wilshere, but it's still a decent salary.

Beckham To Throw Reid A Life Line

Ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham's Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami, mainly known as Inter Miami CF or simply Inter Miami, look to have thrown West Ham United a bone and ex-hammer of the year Winston Reid a career lifeline. Inter Miami are in desperate need of a strong, verbal defender who is a leader and can organise a colander like defence that has conceded 5 goals in their three out of three defeats.

Grady Diangana Decision Time

With the start of the Barclays Premier League a little over a month away, key decisions need to be made by clubs as to how they will set their stall out for the coming season, not least of which are West Ham United.

Phoney War Eze

Players not involved in European cup competitions are now enjoying a further two week break before returning from their shortened holidays in order to prepare for the start of the new season on September 12th, consequently much of the transfer gossip is exactly that, gossip and rumour.

Fans Prefer A Tent To A Marquee

“We’re lacking in defensive cover. We’re also looking to see who could move on, because that could change the direction we take during the transfer window. The owners have spent a lot of money in the last few years and I’m not sure a similar amount will be available this time."

Wigham United?

There is absolutely no room for sentiment in the cut throat world of professional football, particularly in the Barclays Premier League and the Leagues below it, so West Ham United's pursuit of players who's club's have been relegated is par to the course.
