West Ham - The New Super Power?

West Ham - The New Super Power?

It has been confirmed that West Ham have sealed the transfer of the summer by landing Argentinian pair, Tevez & Mascherano.

Arsenal had been firmly tipped to land these two world class players as their agent had confirmed that they would be moving to an English club, and I don't think I was alone in thinking that it would have been Arsenal, Chelsea or Man Utd.

However, it has been confirmed by the players, the clubs and the players agents that they will indeed land the pair on a years loan.

I must say fair play to the staff at West Ham in pulling off what appears to be one of the most sensational transfers seen in a long long time.

I'll admit to being fairly jealous as I feel Mascherano would have strengthen our midfiled no end.

Astonishing stuff.

I think these two players will take time to acclimatise, I don't think getting them on loan was so smart. But nevertheless, two big names for the Hammers. But surely they don't need another striker?

west ham had NOTHING to do with this deal. MSI, funded by Roman Abramovich, agreed to take them to WH for one season and if they settle well, they will end up at Chelsea. WH are just chelsea's pawn. disgrace.

Pawn or not, I don't think you'll hear West Ham complaining.

As a Hammers fan, it's good to see such generous comments. Regardless of the ulterior motives of the duo's 'owner's' (what a dreadful concept) MSI, this must constitute a huge coup for West Ham. It'll be a real joy to see such talent parade their skills in east London, albeit only for a few months.

Chelski have got their fingers in every mucky pie going. The Brazilian defender Alex, who is owned by Chelski, is apparently going on loan to PSV. I did an article for the gooner online (shameless plug) on our Group F opponents and found out that Abramovich bought Wagner Love for CSKA. Are you listening newsnight? Any of this worthy of investigation? Of course not. C***s.

personally, i think it's a way of getting their values driven WAAAY up in a year's time, whereupon they will leave to go to a far larger club. think about it, they'll have had a year in the prem, and in europe under their belts, shown they can cut it, and then the major clubs will know they can hack it, but will by then have to part with some seriousl moolah to sign them. »»Arsene Knows««
