Jason Cummings
at 14:38 1 Aug 2019

Apparently we're interested in Jason Cummings currently at Notts Forest (source: Football Insider). Anyone else heard anything about this? Would he be a good signing?

There for the taking.
at 15:50 2 Oct 2017

Met with some ardent West Ham fans today who reckon that they were "there for the taking" if we had shown some proper attacking intent on Saturday. They can't believe how docile we were - only one shot on target.

Also news from the East London terraces is Andy Carroll to Everton in the January transfer window!

Just got back from MKD
at 23:01 22 Aug 2017

Good win but a strange game played in a warm up friendly atmosphere - and pace. Olsson, Carrol and Ayew destroyed them down the left. We definitely need a new right back. Absolutely gutted about Barkley. Looked like a nasty injury. To be fair the home fans clapped him off all the around the ground as he was stretchered off.

Why are we making senseless bids that will never be accepted?
at 14:48 18 Aug 2017

Why are we making senseless bids for players when it is blindingly obvious that they will not be accepted in a million years? £12 million for Cluclas? £20 million for Joe Allen? On and on it goes.

Diego Costa on loan?
at 10:31 17 Aug 2017

Why not push the boat out and try to get Costa on a season long loan? That would make for some interesting viewing when we play Chelsea (if they would let us play him against them) wouldn't it?

Guidolin should be given time!

No way that Francesco Guidolin should be sacked after today. Cut him some slack and give him till Christmas to show that he can turn things around.

First team sell off
at 10:41 1 Aug 2016

According to news reports it looks as if we're going to sell off both our first choice centre halves as well as our first choice centre forward. Come on! How many positions can Peter Crouch cover? And at the same time?

What are our new investors doing?

Wolves are in for Anderson Talisca, a Brazilian striker, for £25 million. They are a Championship side who have just been backed by new investors. Meanwhile we are scraping the barrel with rumours about Peter Crouch and loan signings. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Missing a trick regarding Bony?
at 19:02 18 Jul 2016

As pre-season preparations start I can't help but think that we're missing a trick with the Bony scenario. If Manchester City want £3 million for a season long loan, why not take them up on it and deduct the money from their outstanding balance to us. OK we would have to stump up wages for a season, but we'd actually be shelling no money out on a transfer fee. We know that Bony suits our style of play and we can't go into the new season with only one recognised striker. Come on Huw. You know it makes sense.

We would be mad to move Ayew on.
at 13:34 17 May 2016

There are many news outlets indicating that whether or not we keep Andre Ayew next season is down to Huw Jenkins. I think it would be madness to move our top scorer on. Surely a better option would be to keep him for at least one more season and perhaps bring in his brother, Jordan, as a further attacking option!

Sir Huw says - Guidolin a hit
at 15:28 9 May 2016

Guidolin has brought exactly what he thought he would bring to us. He has adjusted in his time here - he has got to know the squad and got used to the Premier League. He has brought in a bit of common sense and a bit of simplicity, as well as experience. I don't think those simple things are highlighted enough in the modern world of football. Sometimes other things are given too much prominence and some over-analysing goes on. - Huw Jenkins.

If this report is accurate it sounds like a hint at a change of heart. We can hope it's true!

Possible transfer move for Charlton defender Morgan Fox
at 12:46 2 May 2016

We may be lining up a summer transfer move for Charlton defender Morgan Fox, according to reports.

The 22-year-old, who made his first-team debut for the Addicks back in 2012, has made 44 appearances for already-relegated Charlton this season. Fox has been in impressive form for Jose Riga’s side in recent weeks and set-up Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s opener at Leeds on Saturday. The Sunday People say Fox is set to leave the South Londoners in the summer after the club suffered relegation from the Championship.

Chelmsford-born Fox has played over 75 games for Charlton and represented Wales’ U21 side on seven occasions.

Alberto Paloschi - realistic prospect?
at 16:01 27 Jan 2016

Forza Italian Football are reporting our interest in Alberto Paloschi. This may well be a realistic option for us.

Premier League side Swansea City have joined the queue of Serie A sides eager to sign Chievo striker Alberto Paloschi.

The Swans recently appointed Francesco Guidolin as their new coach, and the former Udinese boss has reportedly expressed his desire to bring the 26-year-old to Wales in an attempt to improve the team’s scoring record as they have only found the net on 22 occasions in the 2015-16 season.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Swansea have increased their previous offer to €8 million plus €2m in bonuses in order to beat Atalanta, who have seen their bid of €7m plus €1m in bonuses rejected.

Sampdoria have also been linked to the player, as they could soon lose their forward Eder, with the likes of Leicester City and Inter keen on the Brazilian-born Italy international.

Paloschi has scored eight goals in 21 Serie A appearances so far, closing in on his 2013-2014 record of 13 league goals.

Tremmel lasered
at 08:35 30 Aug 2013

I can't understand why no action was taken regarding the laser that was being used by some joker - shining it in Tremmel's eyes during the game. This is dangerous and can cause eye damage, as well as distracting the goalie at vital moments. Has anyone heard if any action is being taken?
