West Ham should consider £3m offer following teammate’s emergence

As reported by Sky Sports, Everton have offered West Ham £3 million for defender Reece Oxford, and perhaps there is a case to be made for selling the 19-year-old. The Edmonton-born centre-back has made 17 appearances for the Hammers, but that is kind of disappointing considering his Premier League debut came all the way back in […] The post West Ham should consider £3m offer following teammate's emergence appeared first on Moore Than Just A Club

The key difference to ensure West Ham’s spending doesn’t flop like Everton’s

Following window after window of inaction at West Ham United, this summer has finally seen the Davids step back from transfer dealings, appointing a manager and Director of Football and letting them get on with it.

22-year-old midfielder could allow Pellegrini to replace Kouyate without spending a penny

Following the departure of Cheikhou Kouyaté to Crystal Palace, Manuel Pellegrini’s senior central midfield options are not an overwhelmingly exciting selection. Summer free transfer Jack Wilshere is an excellent coup, but Pellegrini’s options to partner him are ageing skipper Mark Noble, Pedro Obiang – who was in talks over a move to Sampdoria before Pellegrini reportedly […] The post 22-year-old midfielder could allow Pellegrini to replace Kouyate without spending a penny appeared first

Will West Ham fan favourite struggle for game time under Pellegrini?

Last season David Moyes’ three-at-the-back system flopped, and the club shipped far too many goals as the team flirted with relegation. The Scot is no longer around, having been replaced by Manuel Pellegrini, and the Chilean is most likely throwing out all his predecessor’s blueprints. The 64-year-old has never dabbled in the three-at-the-back fad, and […] The post Will West Ham fan favourite struggle for game…

25-year-old destroyer is the ideal man to replace Kouyate at West Ham

Cheikhou Kouyate has left for Crystal Palace and Pedro Obiang reportedly wants to return to Sampdoria and may well be sold to fund the pursuit of a central defender, which means that Manuel Pellegrini is short of central midfield options and may be about to get shorter.

Talks over £10m target prove Reid’s West Ham days are numbered under Pellegrini

Manuel Pellegrini has already set about overhauling West Ham’s leaky defence with the acquisition of Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena and looks set to trade the five-man backline preferred by David Moyes for a more conventional four at the back.

How should West Ham shape up defensively against Liverpool?

West Ham have been looking quietly impressive in pre-season under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, and his abundance of summer signings are, for the most part, looking promising.
