Great result against Everton! #SixPointUnited
it was a shocker of a game, one of those games where you start trying to work out where it's all going right for them lol

Fourth Update

Transfer window opens

Transfer Target Meeting Before Fulham

So I have done my research grabbed my scout reports, performance charts and I’m off to a board meeting, with Karen Brady, David Sullivan and David Gold.

Me : Hi, how are we all?

KB: Very good, what did you need to chat about?

Me: Transfer targets, it’s the first of January we are about to play Fulham, but during the match I’d like you to consider financing moves for the following.

DS: We will but only if you commit to a new contract?

Me: Yes I’d be very happy to talk about contract extension I don’t want to leave in 6 months

DG: So who are your targets then?
I know I need a winger

Me: I know Damien Duffs available for free, he would bring great experience and an extra option on our wings. He hasn’t played all season would be desperate to get some games at his age

DG: he’s 34 and not playing for F**King Fulham, he’s not bloody putting on a West Ham shirt unless his wages drop.

Me: Oh ok what about an old boy then Matthew Etherington?

DS: No we didn’t leave on the best of terms can’t see him coming back!
I desperately need a better Right Back

Me: What about a right Back? Demels not performing this season at all can we release him as nobody’s interested?

DS: That depends….

Me: On?

DS: Do you have the £1.9m to pay him off for his contract!

Me :/ This is not going well, how about Ruben Ligeon he’s available for loan from Ajax? 7 u21 caps for Holland bit pacey, decent crosser decent enough Defender and a tiny wage ?

KB: Are you sure?

Me: if it means I can spend a few million on another position well tha

DS: You want a honest answer on a budget?

DG: We got nothing, Portsmouth have a bigger transfer budget than us this window.

KB: Sorry Rob, you have around £20k per week spare for loans but that’s it.

Me: I understand I was hoping we could push on and up the table. So Ruben Ligeon it is then.

DS: At least you have Andy Carroll back he’s a new striker for you! Even tho Crouch is scoring we want to see Andy playing more
Crouch and Carroll up top gonna be unbeatable in the air !
Very good update! Hope you do well in the season ahead.
I, as a Sheffield United fan, hope that you win no more games and you get relegated.
Rivalries aside, this is a good story so far, and I really like that update!

So after being deflated by the terrible news on the budgets but the security on a new contract has boosted the disciples in my squad. I walk down the corridors wondering what agents to ring bump into my assistant manager Neal McDonald , who informs me Fulham are just about to turn up

Still no transfers though looks a barren window for West Ham excepfor one loan deal

10/01/2014 Ruben Ligeon 21 D/WB/R joins on a loan deal till the end of the season from Ajax

My gyazo has crashed so will update further when I get this working

Reallly quick updates to catch up.
Transfer window shut and no signings came in but Guy Demel leaves with our blessing to join Championship side Charlton on a free transfer and a significant amount of wages continued to be paid over the next 18 months.

After the Arsenal game, David Gold called me into his office for an urgent meeting....
Here I am on an awful run of form with a guy speaking with what I assume is his agent and nobody saying anything to me am I being sacked?
I excused myself to the loo and now I am staring at this loo roll

Just caught up on this. Great story. Shame your bet player could be sold :(

True but £11m will be useful if they let me use this in full
Knowing West Ham they will give you about 3 million :P
You know shit's gone horribly wrong when you end up hiding in the bathroom :))
