|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
There still isn't one direct quote from Diame, his agent or the club, just Allardyce saying they haven't been able to agree on a new deal yet. The Daily Mail story is purely an understanding of the situation twisted to make a tasty story in my opinion. It's entirely possible he will stay hopefully signing a new contract and removing the clause but if not then at least staying until the end of the season when it will be easier to replace him. I think all football fans are going to have to get used to this kind of clause in contracts as they are an Agents dream fuelling more transfers and more fees. The real shame about it all is we have one of our most exciting acquisitions in recent seasons but you have to say this whole scenario leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
Gets on my tits the way he gets all the adulation yet someone like Gary O'Neill gets slaughtered, yet he wears the shirt with pride and gives 100% every time he plays
Spurge 3.5mil on a player that he has his eye on for the whole of the jan window,where you been fella? The heart condition didn't stop us from laying out 40k a week what we are trying to increase.if I had said a player that he had not been sniffing around I would have understood your comment,in this case I don't.
Diame, who arrived at Upton Park last summer, is yet to agree fresh terms with the Hammers as they strive to keep him at the club.
However, Allardyce believes the situation can be resolved and has denied talk of a dispute over his buyout clause.

look at it from Diame's point of view
Hes not a West Ham fan / youth product, so has no emotional connection
Hes linked with clubs who regularly finish higher or play European competition
Hes linked with clubs that could / would pay more wages than West Ham
Unless all these 'links' are pure paper talk, and not one club has even enquired - and he'll be in the know with that situation - I reckon he'll be off. He did it to Wigan after all
So who has he actually been linked with outside of Arsenal and QPR ?
QPR ( will definitely pay more wages )
Arsenal ( better team, euro competition, better wages )
Spuds ( euro competition, better wages )
The QPR & Arsenal links are from the media, and the Spuds link is from Spuds forums that a friend of mine told me about.
...Gary O'Neill is a decent relegation calibre midfielder.
He must be counting his lucky stars every day that he is able to continue drawing Premier League wages.
I don't think any other PL clubs are in for him?
Diame is infinitely better and supposedly has suitors.
Just don't understand your point.
There was a statement from Diame, up on the OS just a second again, went to link it and it's gone.......
Ahh, there we go

Fair play and I expect everyone here who called him a c*nt to apologise.
