Grant Asks for £10 Million

You can listen to Victor Obinna being interviewed on the BBC World Service's Sportsworld programme. In the interview he is asked about whether he would like to stay at West Ham. He is complimentary about Avram Grant and West Ham but I can't help thinking that unless West Ham start rapidly climbing up the league table he won't be here next season.

The Sun and The Mail report that Avram Grant thinks £10 million to spend in the January transfer window should be enough to save West Ham. However there is no indication that the money will be available. They quote Grant saying,

"If the owners gave me £10million, that would be great. January is not a good time to invest but we need some dangerous players."

The Mirror claim that Grant is close to being sacked and that Chris Hughton and Martin Jol are likely candidates as his replacement.

Was thinking, perhaps we could persuade Joe cole to give up on his mad Liverpool adventurer and come back to us. One of the most naturally talented players to come from England, is wasting his career.

He needs someone to take him under their wing and just let him play, not like he did at Chelsea, but like he did with us. Get Di Canio to join up, and him and Grant go out to persuade him to join, in some swap deal with Carlton Cole. They want him for some reason. His wages can be paid from the lack of wages paid to Dyer, when we get rid of him. He is better than Dyer.

I am not saying that he will be the saviour, but he is quality, and now is the only chance we will get to take him back. Then we just need a centre back, and a striker. Robbie Keane anyone.

On that point, where is the next Joe Cole, Defoe, Carrick, Glenn Johnson. We do have them, Stanlislas, Zines, Nouble, Sears...all need their chance.

Any players who are not contributing shud be sold,even at cut-rate prices. Such players are no good to us whether we stay up or not- any funds from such sales shdu be immediately invested in a striker ,possibly two. Who do I have in mind ?
Cole. McCarthy. Sears . Ilunga . And if he's intent on leaving,Behrami. I don't care if McCarthy goes on a free - it's worth having him and the other off teh wage book.

And there probably one or two more that I have left out who cud be gotten rid of.

No matter who manages the club, be it Grant or a replacement,that person will need a couple signings if we are to have any chance.

Which means getting rid of deadwood, and perhaps teh owners making a contribution.

Th echoice is easy: spend a small amount of money now to help us survive, or bear the consequences of relegation,which are north of 100 million. And posssibly worse than that if we go into administration.

You think that the club will not get liquidated if we go down? What happened to Pompey cud be a walk in the park compared to what we face if we go down.

Action needs to be taken immediately. Starting with chnaging the manager. BEFORE the Rovers game not after. We cannot afford to waste a single fixture now.

As for Obinna ,he is capable of better than he has shown ,and it high time that he started proving his worth.

No excuses about injuries,an unkind fixture list ,bad refereeing decisions .


Fight,determination,fire. not laziness and meek surrender

...but i hear Big Georgie Graham is still up for grabs

Doesn't matter who is up for grabs.
The fact we're still in a cup and the FA cup has started means our Chairmen will stick with the current setup and hope for the best.
I'm afriad that untill the cups go tits up we're nice and stuck with Avram.
I did have hope when he came and of course the buck does not stick with him. Theres 11 lads out there that need to take some of the blame, with obvious exceptions. (Parker Noble etc) But if the likes of Cole, Upson, Kovac, Specter (Come on he only had one good game!) Tomkins, LBM and even Piqs (to a point) refuse to take any form of blame then they need to pick up thier p45's and walk to the train station.
Perhaps it is Grants fault, perhaps these players just aren't responding to him or can't play the game Stoke style (long ball, long throw, rince repeat)
Big Sam...? NOOOOOO I'd rather, and braces yourself here, I'd rather have Paul Ince than Big Sam.

Someone go give Klingsman a ring haha

haha thank god for that mate! Think big sam would bring a bad style to our play like all the clubs he manages! Was crazy their board saying they want a top 5 finish though! Rovers should be chirpy in 13th!
