He listed our midfielders who are currently able to play and explained why we dont need to sign Beckham because even without Diame, we have a healthy number.


Nope I make 1959 right.

He didn't list currently fit players and anyway Diame's nearly back.

If Tomkins goes IMO Jonas Olsson has to come in.


I've seen Jonass Olsson mentioned a few times and he is an excellent player but why would West Brom sell him? They have him on a contract until 2016 and he is essential to their defence.

I note that Sunderland seem to be close to signing Kader Mangane who failed a medical with us in the summer. Not in time for todays game though.

Suggesting Tomkins didn't celebrate our goals against Man United is wide of the mark. On both occasions, he is past Collins when the latter heads the ball and then moves back across to join in the celebrations.

That's not to say that the board wouldn't listen to an offer for him, but the discussion has touched on the idea that Tomkins somehow is unhappy with life at the Boleyn.

He doesnt actually do anything, nor does any Barcelona defender. The truly great defenders in world football are the likes of Thiago Silva. those who defend and dont rely on there team having 80% possession to do so.



So Pique is overrated because he plays in a good team??OK.Possibly the strangest thing I have heard today.

MS in the West wrote:I must say the 'Tomkins was at fault for the Van Persie goal' lobby bemuses me. Indeed I think that in itself is a good reason for discounting any opinion on other matters of football.

Sometimes a truly great goal is scored. Van Persie's was one. I'll tell you who might have successfully defended against that goal. Bobby Moore.

Tomkins is not as good as Moore shock. Well I think we can all go with that.


Nonsense. I admit that the goal was class but I would have backed either Collins or Reid to have stopped it one way or another.

I like Tomkins. I liked him when I first saw him come on at a pre-season friendly as a 16 or 17 year old (I think he was) at Gillingham 7 or 8 years ago. I was blown away by his calmness and ability that made me think we might have another Bobby Moore in the pipeline.

I now see that Bobby Moore style calmness as lacking a bit of passion as he too frequently allows forwards to go past him. Perhaps that's what BFS sees (or rather doesn't see!) as well. He is talented without any doubt. The big difference between Tomkins and both Reid and Collins is that the latter 2 have a "they will not pass" attitude. Tomkins doesn't have that yet...

So yes a terrific goal but it still should have been defended.

The thing is, we've brought in a lot of players, once that LB signs we don't have any space on 25-man lists. That's not a problem but with heavyweights like Carroll, Nolan and a few others, youngsters who earn above average Reserves salaries (Potts, Spence, Hall, Morrison, ...) our budget is just too heavy right now.

I'd be really surprised not to see anybody leaving in this window. But I'd be even more surprised if we let Tomkins leave on a fee that's below £10m. And I'd even be more surprised if Sam was to continue the season with only 2 centre backs (one was out for months last year, one was not playing at all.). Jonas Olsson is not for sale, they rejected QPR's bid in region of what was it, £6m, and told they don't encourage anyone to make any further bids.

However, talkSPORT is already reporting Newcastle are closing in on the deal...

Maiga, Piquionne, O'Neil to leave.

Colocini put in a transfer request yesterday. Personal reasons, wants to go back to Argentina.

Just saying.

Who is LB ? The only one I can think of right now, is Luis Boa :?

I think you need to take another look at the goal.

Are you saying that Collins or Reid would've got to that ball before Van Persie? I ask because once Van Persie gets to it, his first and second touch are so sublime there is nothing any defender could do to stop him scoring.

There is no way we will play the rest of the season with 2 CBs. Certainly not with what happened last season (Linda and JOB being drafted in) or this (endless injuries, Collins suspended.) No way. The only way Tomkins will leave is if we get in adequate replacements (unlikely in the Jan transfer window which is more for patching up than full-scale squad sorting).

Talksport are, again, talking *****.

So can we talk about something else now?

THAT goal wasn't just class it was world class i dont believe any defender in the world could have done anything, from giggs ball to the finish undfendable imo, cant blame jt in any way for it.

Blimey!, didn't they pay something like 10mil for him, I can't imagine many, if any, team in South America could pay anything near that!.

Does anybody know anything about an Andrei Kramarica?, making lots of noise about wanting to come to west ham from Russia?

Andrej Kramaric... Baldock type of player. Don't go in there.

If we really want the next Modric here in England, Alen Halilovic. The kid is going places.

That's not true. He has expressed a wish to come home (via his father) and has asked Newcastle if there's a chance for him to join San Lorenzo. If they can't figure things out, he will put in a transfer request but as of now, your post is incorrect.
