West Ham's Season's Ticket Debacle

I've just looked at a video of Cavani goals for us again and wow just wow this guy scoring goals is like lyke littler hitting a 180.

What could of been if CR7 #2 had never happened.

That goal against Everton was beautiful. What's your favourite.

19 Jun 2024 17:59:51
I was talking about this at work today. Ronaldo displaced Cavani, it was a shame as I really rated him.

19 Jun 2024 19:11:57
The Fulham one first game back after Covid when we were all sat apart, what a finish.

 3


20 Jun 2024 06:15:23
Cavani is one of those players I wish we bought a few years earlier.

Imagine if we got a 27 year old Cavani in 2015 rather than a 33 year old Cavani in 2020.

That was the summer we bought Martial, when we could probably should have bought Cavani.

We probably wouldn't have then subsequently bought Lukaku in 2017, saving us a fortune.

Hindsight hey.

At last eth has had a turn of luck.
The fixture list has been very kind to us.
A great opportunity to gather some real momentum over our 1st 10 league fixtures.
We only play 3 teams that finished above us last season the other 7 are either promoted or bottom half teams from last season.
24 points from our 1st 10 games would be realistic given the fixtures and from there anything is possible.
Of the 3 teams that finished above us villa might have been a one season wonder and spurs blow hot and cold.
Liverpool at home in match week 3 is the a really big one. Going into that with 2 good wins would be ideal.
Maybe just maybe eth is seeing his luck turn.
We will know a lot after those 1st 10 games and as I said we have a great chance to gain some good momentum before we face many of the 'big boys'

19 Jun 2024 14:01:16
Liverpool early on will be an interesting one with their new manager, could be a good time to play them hopefully. Be interesting how they perform this season after 9 years of Klopp. Villa in Champions League will obviously have an impact on them, Chelsea starting another campaign with a new manager, Tottenham, well they're just Tottenham really. Great chance to nail in top 4 but also keep in and around the title race I think, especially with a good start as you say. Certainly won't be any excuses for ETH this season.

 2


19 Jun 2024 15:12:00
All depends on what the transfer window is like

They have talked up a lot now it’s time for some action

But regardless those away games we have will be difficult regardless of the table last season.

 3


19 Jun 2024 18:23:30
I agree with Bolger as it really does depend on comings and goings regarding transfers, how early we get those incoming which is integral to how we develop the team to be a unit.
If incomings are late in the window as well as outgoings then those early fixtures could go the same as the previous season.

 1


19 Jun 2024 20:38:58
After last season I don't see any easy fixtures. It will be a good early barometer though, win the majority of those matches and you could argue we are back on track, start dropping points and the pressure builds again.

 1


20 Jun 2024 09:23:49
Once we don't have injuries every game will be different and we will beat everyone.

I see what you're doing here Ken 😉
Setting it up nice and early lol.

20 Jun 2024 13:42:57
Not at all angel.
We saw casimero drop off last season and people want him sold because of that.
Was he not subject to the fact he was covering a very poor defence due to injuries.
Without any signings we know this squad can finish 3rd and win a cup when fit.
So squad fitness and availability is key its what people give a pass to eth for so the same rationale should be used for the players.

19 Jun 2024 12:29:41
I see we have been linked to Xavi Simons. Purely putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 5. Bruno has been repeatedly linked with a Saudi move. Could we see Bruno to Saudi and Simons to United with a net cash gain?

 0


19 Jun 2024 13:28:36
That isn't a bad shout out there Rewz.

However I think it this unlikely. Xavi Simmons will have far better options than Utd. I'm not even sure if he is an actual target for Utd.

I think Neves from Benfica is more likely to be playing at OT at the upcoming season.

In football, anything can happen.

 0


19 Jun 2024 13:42:11
Not sure there’d be a net cash gain from it.

 0


19 Jun 2024 14:27:00
Purely off the numbers reported in the press (So pinch of salt time) Xavi Simons, PSG apparently want £50m and Bruno is speculated to be valued at around £100m by the Saudi clubs so based on absolutely no concrete information and merely paper talk a £50m net gain.

If we could do anywhere near those numbers we'd be replacing a player that is 30 in September with a 21 year old that is statistically similar to Bruno with improving year on year stats but is almost 10 years his junior.

If by some miracle the press reports were correct on valuations etc, it would be good business. £50m gets you half a Joao Neves.

 0


19 Jun 2024 14:44:13
Watching Fernandes last night, I have no idea why anyone would want to move him on. I know he's not some people's cuppa tea but I think the fella is quality and if we are to make any sort of challenge and cup runs next season he will be pivotal for the team.

 9


19 Jun 2024 14:47:17
Add that to the reported £80m Al Nassr Casemiro fee (got to love a bit of media speculation) and we replace Bruno and Casemiro with Xavi Simons and Joao Neves and still have £30m left over. Or half an Olise (Hahahaha)

 1


19 Jun 2024 16:49:01
That could be good Rewz, but which half of Olise do we get?

 1


19 Jun 2024 17:30:53
The right half.

 1


19 Jun 2024 17:41:29
That would still probably be better than Antony!

 1


19 Jun 2024 20:35:32
Simmons and Bruno are not the same type of players. Additionally whatever you think of his moaning Bruno is a leader and experienced and we lack that type of player so to get rid and bring in a young inexperienced player makes no sense.

 3


19 Jun 2024 21:50:33
Selling at the right time for the right price is part of a great recruitment strategy.

20 Jun 2024 00:36:31
If you believe any clubs going to pay £80m for Casemiro I’ve got some magic beans to sell you 😂.

20 Jun 2024 09:25:30
Bruno and Simmons are nothing alike in playing style.
How much of Simmons have you seen?

17 Jun 2024 16:30:19
Instead of rumours we shoukd be called persistent request nuisances

Ed002 is the Oracle
we all seek for Knowledge and honest TR news

Shappy always has great posts
The a few regular posters are mostly condescending lot to new posts that are not labeled Ed

Nobody posts any rumours anymore just ask Ed002 dot com we have become.

17 Jun 2024 17:18:40
Pretty sure I saw Wesley Shneyeda in arrivals at Manchester Airport today when I went to pick my mum and dad up.

Not saying the deal is on, but not one to ever be ruled out.

 7


17 Jun 2024 18:11:02
People get abuse for word of mouth rumours now so people are reluctant. And then we have people handing out post of the day gongs so if you’re not in that side of the argument your ridiculed so there is little wonder i’m afraid.

17 Jun 2024 20:40:05
I wouldn't worry too much about it g nev. Post what you like if the eds see it as OK for posting what do you care what people on here think?

17 Jun 2024 21:05:13
I love the irony of the OP. Condescending 😂😂😂.

17 Jun 2024 21:14:06
Nev, it's also a banter page, I've taken more than my fair share of pot shots, snipes and ridicule.

Either stand up and be counted, or fold and walk away.

Many of the people who complain about comments made against them on here are the same ones who complain about the "weak mentality" of our players, apparently without realising the irony.

Ultimately I think the world has changed, when these pages started the likes of Romano et. al were still suckling at their mother's teet. Social media is where all the rumours go now, with people trying to make a living out of being supposedly ITK.

Ultimately they seem as credible as the daily rags before them.

When is Nico Gaitan arriving?

18 Jun 2024 00:56:37
This website maybe called rumors but it's more than that. It's a community.

18 Jun 2024 01:43:59
Either Gaitan or Peresic plus Kevin Strootman 😂.

 1


18 Jun 2024 05:49:56
Agreed FGIC.

I love everyone in this community (and hate them at the same time)

18 Jun 2024 06:49:51
Some real quality contributions here, so many ‘post of the day’ nominees 👏.

 3


18 Jun 2024 09:35:04
Kevin Strootman. What a throwback. My first ever post on here was asking Ed about him years back.

 1


18 Jun 2024 09:35:40
Sneijder?

 0


18 Jun 2024 10:20:31
I remember back back in the day asking about Marcos Senna. He'd have been a good signing. He's probably a little old now, but is the type of midfielder we need this year.

 1


18 Jun 2024 12:00:08
I so badly wanted Strootman to join for no other reason than to stop the rumours!

 1


18 Jun 2024 12:55:46
Senna would have been a brilliant signing. I remember that the club refused to pay an extra 1.5 million for him.

 1


18 Jun 2024 13:06:59
Don't think anything will beat the fabregas stuff! Remember how excited Sydney! Was 😂.

Deano. on fibreglass.
I think he will be one of the next great coaches.

Well done me for being a nuisance.
Yep, couldn't agree more, cheers.

You know, according to me, I like Tuesdays. I'm not entirely sure how that info came to light, but I've asked me and I've not yet provided me an answer.

18 Jun 2024 16:15:39
Strootman ended up signing for Summer Bay FC. The manager Alf was a big fan.

 1


18 Jun 2024 22:09:22
The vibe is different… you’re spot on.
I still miss Rainfish Trombone and the penguin guy, what was their name Ngaik or something?!

Always nice to see Sydney! pop up every now again.

Shappy is keeping the old vibe alive but there’s a lot more sniping than there used to be.

Ed001 and 002 are amazing people and thanks for keeping this community going 👊💯❤️.

Gan strangely wrote about his alter ego ngiak in the 3rd person. Quite a personality.

I think RFT became IAMKLOOT at one point?

Sydney! Used to post as much as Shappy does now. Others of note were The Beast, Moon, JRed, Zee, NoMidfield/ Schmidfield, certain I am missing many more obvious former posters.

Some left in a blaze of glory, some drifted away, some probably still read daily but can't be bothered posting 😂

Along with the Ed's it is a great community, an excellent source of information and usually some good banter.

19 Jun 2024 09:56:05
Oh god the beast, he was a nightmare haha. I think no midfield may still post with a different name. So many good posters over the years.

CTR/ ChrisTheRedman, Jono, Honey Badger, Betty Swollocks to name a few others. I've been here until around the time it first started. Literally 1 page of rumours. Around 2002ish? I think.

Supasub,

I joined around 2007 ISH.

19 Jun 2024 13:17:04
Zee. What a guy.

I ended up playing PlayStation with him a few times.

 1


19 Jun 2024 21:13:35
I’m not fully down with young people lingo but I’m assuming playing PlayStation is like Netflix and chill, right?

 2


17 Jun 2024 14:58:05
Think guehi would be a good option for us. if the braithwaite deal drags and the price is too rich for us then I'd definitely seriously consider him. Very solid.

 5


17 Jun 2024 15:34:26
The reports on what Everton value Braithwaite at are ridiculous. He’s had one season in the prem for a struggling side and they want over £70m for him.

It’s all reports so could be inaccurate.

United of the past would spend all summer putting in low ball offers to then happily hand over £80m for him on transfer deadline day, I’m hoping the “new” United have wised up and walk away quickly, like Liverpool and city do when the price is too high.

Can’t afford to spend the entire transfer budget on one player. Must be better value out there somewhere.

 1


{Ed002's Note - Manchester United know that Everton needs funds within the next two weeks and will make an improved offer.}

 9


17 Jun 2024 16:13:52
Are there any other clubs preparing offers for Braithwaite ed002? Or is it a case of United and Everton needing to agree a fee?

Am I right in presuming that he’s a first choice option for United and the club will move onto other options if Everton want more than United are willing to pay?

 0


{Ed002's Note - Jarrad Branthwaite (CB) Everton want a new contract but Spurs, Manchester United and Newcastle have an interest. Ancelotti has spoken to Solari about him and scouts were sent to watch him against Newcastle, but Solari is not convinced that English players settle well on the continent. Manchester United will likely need a complete rebuild at CB with departures in the summer and so he will likely be a leading option. Spurs have a need for a CB. Newcastle has a compelling need to add one or two younger CBs. A wildcard would be Manchester City.

Manchester United have a number of other options including Inacio and Tobido.}

 3


17 Jun 2024 16:19:29
Bid of £50m + add ons in.?
I can see Braithwaite and Todibo.

 0


17 Jun 2024 17:00:16
Just glad that United seem to be in a hurry to get business done and not have their pants taken down; plus names mentioned by Ed002 in post above and previous all seem really good players.

 1


17 Jun 2024 17:19:59
Who is this Braithwaite chap people keep linking us to? Is he as good as the lad from Everton?

 4


{Ed025's Note - Jarrad Branthwaite is at Everton Brendan and is the best young CB in Europe mate, we need the money badly so you might just have our pants down and get him for around £60m, believe me hes worth more..

 2


17 Jun 2024 18:12:12
That might go over a few heads Brendan lol.

 8


17 Jun 2024 18:41:52
If another team buys Onana first won't that mean Everton can hold out for a larger amount for Braithwaite?

 0


17 Jun 2024 20:09:18
Thankfully he put in a pish poor performance for Belgium today. Keep it up lad, you keep those buyers reluctant.

 0


17 Jun 2024 20:47:08
Tim99, I reluctantly watched that dross which is the national team.
With Guehi to be honest he is a bit rash in the challenge for my liking.
There was also commentary about a knee injury, which I assume had him out for a while or is a recurring issue.

 0


17 Jun 2024 21:19:46
Marc Guehi would be a good signing, and I can see him being the England player who gets a big move this summer on the back of a good tournament.

Supposedly Palace are open to selling him due to his contract situation.

However, ever good display with England will further push his price up.

 4


17 Jun 2024 21:36:52
Agreed Wallace and of those players will improve us greatly. If we can get 2 in that would be fantastic.

 0


17 Jun 2024 21:17:40
Salford, due to the amortisation of Onana's 33m transfer fee Everton will need to sell Onana for 60m+ up front to ensure they have the 40m clear in their accounts to avoid being in breach of PSR by the 30th of June.

While they won't want to lose Branthwaite, he is probably the one they will have to cut loose to avoid another points deduction.

 4


{Ed002's Note - Everton will lose a couple of players this week but have the bandwidth to avoid shark type approaches.}

 3


18 Jun 2024 06:51:11
Good Morning Ed002

I hope you are enjoying the euros. Speaking of our CB's targets who do you personally rate the highest out of the group you have mentioned and is the Branthwaite reported bid too low in your opinion. You have mentioned how we have overpaid many times in the past and is this being opportunistic or about right.

 0


{Ed002's Note - Inacio stands out.}

 4


18 Jun 2024 18:44:05
Brendan,

Very good, I think we are going to have to get used to it, people below your post are still calling him Branthwaite as well!

 0


18 Jun 2024 22:11:28
I like Branthwaite, Guehi too.
If we replace Maguire, Varane and Lindelof with them it would be excellent business.

 0


{Ed025's Note - if you replaced them 3 with Curly, Larry and Mo it would be an upgrade though UR.. :)

15 Jun 2024 16:39:57
ED002,

Do Utd have their hands tied with Ashworth, or could they pursue another for the role of DOF should they not agree suitable compensation for Ashworth or if Ashworth decide to go elsewhere?


I understand that Ashworth shared an email from Barrada approaching him for a role at the club.

Finally who realistically would be alternative solutions to Ashworth.

Thanks.

 0


{Ed002's Note - It is not hands tied but a need to figure a deal out.}

 5


16 Jun 2024 11:33:11
I think the problem now is if United abandoned the pursuit it would leave Ashworth high and dry, and who would want to work for us if we did something like that.

Surely too much water has passed under the bridge for him to go back and assume his role with Newcastle.

So then what? Do they sack him, do they keep him on gardening leave, do they take legal action against us for creating that situation?

It just needs sorting, if the clubs cannot come to an agreement then the court for arbitration in sport will.

 6


16 Jun 2024 11:28:12
Thanks ED002.

16 Jun 2024 12:10:11
ED002,

Do you still think that Paul Mitchell would have been a better choice than Dan Ashworth?

 0


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

 5


17 Jun 2024 09:38:02
Ed, would you care to give your reason for that? I feel like I agree to be honest. I was thinking about the manager position and reports Ashworth would lead on who this should be and it got me thinking, Ashworth has not had any success from a trophy winning point of view with any of the clubs he's been at and the managers he has worked with and then when you compare players, Mitchell's CV of recruitment is far stronger than Ashworth. I'm not trying to discredit Ashworth it's just feels his reputation is better than potentially his career suggests? And all this is just a football fan looking from the outside in so what happens internally could be a whole lot different. That said, he is still an upgrade on previous personnel.

 0


{Ed002's Note - Paul Mitchell is an exceptionally talented scout and football advisor. He has performed at the highest level wherever he has worked. He would have made the ideal DoF for Manchester United.}

 5


17 Jun 2024 12:27:23
It's absolutely fair that Ed002 have this opinion, and his is likely to be much better than mine. However I think it's worth pointing out that Dan Ashworth has actually worked as a DoF. His role at Monaco was more akin to what appears to be described for what Wilcox is doing. So perhaps that was seen as a risk that Ashworth didn't bring.

 0


{Ed002's Note - No. PM had the role of Sporting Director at Monaco. I was responsible for all of the recruitment. His role was nothing like Wilcox. You seem to be struggling to understand.}

Not sure our hands are tied, but his moment of stupidity made things more difficult, or expensive at least maybe.

R. I. P Kevin Campbell a proper gent.

 15


15 Jun 2024 15:17:03
I met Kev back 2006 World Cup. England and Trinidad game. He was mates with my Dad. He was a proper gentleman, very generous with his time until kick off, then he wanted to concentrate. He bought the whole bar a round after the game and called out the Crouch foul as it happened. There were other players there like Frank Sinclair (also a top guy) and Marcus Bent (no comment) - Kev spent half his time telling him to shut up and sit down 😂. He was mega into music too. Really top fella, genuine and authentic.

Really sad news. RIP.

 6


15 Jun 2024 15:59:42
Yep, sad news. I was listening to the tributes this morning, he seems a genuinely nice guy who always took the time to speak to fans, even inviting them to take a seat when he was out for meals. He scored a lot of goals, perhaps unlucky breaking into the Arsenal team at the time of Smith and Wright.

Everton and West Brom fans love him for what he did for them.

He lived in Wilmslow not too far from where I lived at the time, he was always out and about living a very normal life.

RIP to one of the good ones.

15 Jun 2024 21:07:59
Very sad day indeed. Seemed like a really nice bloke whose smile seemed infectious. Thoughts with all his loved ones at this very difficult time!
