    Just read it on bbc. I guess their budget was the 70m they spent in the summer, it just didn’t seem like they’d spent that much as none of them were players I’d heard of. Comsidering they are out of the CL it doesn’t feel like they are being particularly ambitious or have a lot of faith in Emery.

    Let's just all take a moment and let Gennaro Gattuso explain to us how the transfer window is for us fans.

    Especially with the sad death of George, meaning they can only field Andrew, Pepsi & Shirley.

    Arnautovic has stated that he wants to leave wet spam to win trophies.....

    Bayern Munich are in talks with PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who was linked with a free transfer to Barcelona in the summer, and could sign the 23-year-old France international in January. (Radio Montecarlo, via Express)




    We were linked with him in the past, shortly after he got to SCBC if memory serves.

    Hasnt pulled up any trees at SCBC but when you look at his skill set he definitely looks like a player Poch can work with.

    That needs to be sampled on a house track.

    If I were a footballer I'd take the Chinese cup over a 14th place finish with Wet Spam any day of the week though. :p

    There is actually a "remix", but with other parts from the same press conference.

    A bit NSFW, titties and ass.

    70m in the summer and PEA in the winter windows, so well over 100m net spend in a year, not mentioning the ridiculous OTT wages they pay their players so the new signings will be on the same. All this without the champs league revenue. I’d say they have pushed the boat and it’s not really worked, you can’t level lack of ambition at them.

    Two things I have read (one plausible, one less so).

    1). its a wage cap that is bothering them - you can only increase wage bill £7m p/a without increasing revenues and they have already hit this. I don't know why this would effect Loans vs buys perhaps a big loan fee and the other club pays the wages.

    2). Kronke needs to keep their large cash reserves on the books as he has used the club with the reserves as collateral for borrowing for financing other projects / buying the club.

    If I was anyone with a pulse, I’d take a three day old Chinese takeaway over playing for West Ham any day of the week....

    Jack Clarke at Leeds looks a real prospect, maybe Poch could give his old mentor a buzz and work something out?

    Maybe Poch could hide in a bush and watch him from there! :)
