BREAKING: WEST HAM agree deal in principle to sign Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes on an 18-month loan.

Yet Sky Sports claim there is no option or obligation for the Hammers to buy the 20-year-old midfielder at the end of his stint.

Manchester United had been thought to have been in pole position to nab the player with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to strengthen his midfield.

But former Red Devils boss David Moyes has stolen a march on the Old Trafford outfit by striking a deal for Fernandes to join West Ham.

It has been and will always be the same with the club as long as Woodward is in charge.
Hoping for price to drop and before this can even happen, the prospective players are snatched away.
When will we ever learnt????

So completely not surprised that we missed Fernandes, like we missed Haaland (cos Woodward must have calculated that price was not right)

Latest news is Young has turned down the club offered of a one year contract as he wanted to join Inter Milan.
is he looking for a 2 years contract with another one year option or Lukaku is playing the super agent now?:p

Looking like we may end up "KOSONG" with new players this Jan due to our "rigid" transfer policy of forever procrastinating

We scouted for Lyon Moussa Dembele, send scouts to watch, look see look see and what do we know....Chelsea snapped him

Not going for Christian Eriksen in Jan BECAUSE he will be "free" in summer.

Looking at Nelson Semedo from Barcelona (right back) with Spurs. Seems his agent favours Spurs over us.
We are also "looking" at Samuel Umtiti together with Spurs and Arsenal

Hoping Macguire can persuade Maddison to join us

Not interested in Sporting Lisbon's asking price for Bruno Fernandez of 59million which is the release clause when last season price was so much lower

Meanwhile.......
Young not willing to sign extension (Inter Milan almost certain they will sign him according to their CEO)
Chong in advance talk with Juventus
Trying to recall our loanees Smalling and Borthwick Jackson

And....
Injury plagued Rojo still MIA and no other teams seems interested even though he is still an Argentinian international. Seems like we are going to be stuck with this deadwood for yet another year
SM probably out for another 2 months
Macguire out till end of Jan
Pogba out till he feels like playing
Baily, although declared fit but not ready to play or even named on bench

Wondered which report is true...Macguire "suddenly" could be available this weekend against Norwich!!! Or OGS really does not know, or not given any first hand knowledge of his players???

And by some magical intervention, Linggard is ill and so cannot play this weekend!!!!

Tim Fosu Mensah and Eric Bailly would be able playing in the U23s' against Newcastle tonight.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told supporters not to expect much transfer business in January.

Solskjaer has a little over three weeks to make changes to his squad but speaking at a news conference on Friday, he appeared pessimistic about the prospect of making new signings.

Honestly at this stage, it is pretty clear that OGS simply has no say in the transfer window. Coupled with this, he seems to be losing his grips on his players, not knowing who is in/out each week cos he simply does not know the extend of his players' injury problem.

And when the opposition is taking a different approach to the game (which he did not planned for), his lack of tactical skill is exposed. Only know Plan A.
And when it dawns upon him that Plan A is not working, and we are 2 or 3 goals down, then he would try to make changes, which, more often then not, is too little, too late. (Keven De Bruyne sums it up...all it took was for MC 15mins to know the style of our play and the rest is history)

Yes, I doubt the Board would replace him at his stage, but probably by the time we find another new manager (Allergi???) would the rot be too rotten to repair??

by telling the fans not to expect much transfer in Jan, it might be a decoy.........fingers crossed.

Hope so. But more probable a reality like last season cos our $$$$ man will need to sanction any move(s)

actually our midfield is the weakest and lacking exp there apart from Matic.
Anyway, even without player coming in this Jan, Ole will br brave to put in players like Gomez and Chong.
experience player like Mata will be good too though he is much slower now.
