With just a game to go before the end of the season, transfer news is hotting up and Sam Allardyce’s future is on everyone’s lips.

Today has seen even more stories do the rounds when it comes to our wonderful club.

Today we’ve had managers we’ve never heard of, some mental transfer news, Slaven Bilic’s mystic situation in Turkey, Andy Carroll naked and more.

Read on to catch up on all of today’s top West Ham stories…

Barca’s Bartra Bargain

So it is silly season, but there may not be anything so silly about this.

Apparently Barcelona youngster Marc Bartra will be available for as little as £7.5m this summer because he has played less than 60% of the club’s games.

And that means West Ham’s ears have obviously pricked up and are looking to tempt him to east London.

Trouble is, Spurs and Liverpool are also believed to be interested. Oh well…


This is the first tweet I found when searching Pavel Kaderabek’s name in to Twitter.

Who? Exactly! Apparently he’s right back for Sparta Prague and both us and Southampton are keeping tabs on him.

I’d assume this is because we still haven’t wrapped up a deal for Jenko (more on him later) so it’s no surprise we’re taking a look around the market for a replacement.

But, who?

Well said, Dave…

It’s a pretty tragic state of affairs that there’s still a hanful of fans out there that either think it’s acceptable to publicly abuse our owner, doesn’t respect the job they’ve done for us over the last four or five years, or both.

One fan on Twitter earlier today probably thought he was being clever by criticising our man Dave for wanting ‘make money.’

Dave piped up and defend himself by, quite rightly, explaining that making money is not a sin.

Keeping do your thing, Dave. We’re still behind you.

Let’s talk Slaven…

So this morning it was believed Slaven Bilic had been sacked by Besiktas, but it was soon claimed by the Turkish club that those reports were false.

But that’s still enough to have increased speculation about Bilic replacing Allardyce at the club in the summer.

Not really much more to report on that, so watch this space…

Another day, another manager…

Not many people have heard of him, but Viktor Skrypnyk is the latest manager to be linked with the club.

He’s got a 62% win ratio at Werder Bremen, which is impressive, but the general consensus on Twitter is that he wouldn’t be worth the risk.

Back to Slaven it is, then.

Jenko’s flying the flag

We’re all of the belief that England have a problem with West Ham.

But it’s great to see that Carl Jenkinson has been named in England’s provisional squad for this summer’s European U21 Championships.

He’s not technically our player, but he could well be if we get a deal done with Arsenal pretty quickly.

And finally…

4 Weeks To Go Till We Meet Our Baby Boy

Life just wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have Andy Carroll and social media.

The two just go hand-in-hand, and today has whipped us up a nice treat.

Andy’s missus, Billy Mucklow, is about to have a baby so they did what normal couples do and had a lovely photoshoot to prove they’re quite happy about it – and looking forward to it.
