I reckon we'll get him. Young players love us, and they get games and get better.

Whatever happens with Martinez, he's putting together a squad with loads of emerging talent and leaving the club and the squad in a much better state than he found it, which is admirable and will benefit future managers.

I can easily see West Ham getting involved, especially if we dick around.

Close this deal, Roberto. Close it!

Just need to get Roberto in a room with him, and it's done. He's the Don Draper of lower league recruitment.

Just made the mistake of wandering onto a West Ham forum, to see if they were saying anything about Byram. I was met with unfathomable levels of delusion:

''Everything else being equal, a smart player would rather join us than Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea at the moment. All three require major re-building in the next couple of seasons and we are relatively ahead in our re-building stage. More than that, we are more stable''

It's not inconceivable that he could choose West Ham like. They're after a right back for the first team, they pay silly wages at times, it's in London and he might like the way Cresswell has developed for example, and see himself doing the same thing.

Only at Everton could a player go from being "the best right back in the country/Europe/the world" to a "player of limited ability" as soon as a potential young rival for his position comes along. It's Oviedo syndrome all over again and the lad's not even signed for us yet.

It's alright. When Byram chooses West Ham, Coleman will be the best right back in the league again.

"And the Blues boss also confirmed the approach for Leeds United youngster Sam Byram but warns there could be “a long gap” before any possible transfer is completed." - Taken from the echo.

I'm opening a book on who swoops in and nicks him while we fuck about:
West Ham - 5/4
Southampton - 7/5
Palace - 2/1
Tottenham - 3/1
Newcastle - 5/1


How have we fucked about? We've made a bid, it's been accepted and we'll offer terms to the player. Other clubs are allowed to bid and discuss terms with the player as well.

Some tit on GOT claiming to be ITK reckons Howard's defo going this month. No chance. Who's gonna sell us a boss keeper halfway through the season to replace him, without charging us silly money?

Austin rumoured to be on 100grand a week. Fuck that shit!

Agreed.

Just as an aside, Adebayor is apparently still on £100k a week from Spurs. Imagine.

The tweet is within the last 15 minutes (since new info must've come to light), and the article it links to is from this morning (when it was in doubt). Basically it's a done deal.

Those articles were the other way round weren't they?

The one that stated he trained with them was later in the day.

Hmm. They seem to be playing silly beggars. The link takes you to a different article than it did when I first posted it. Initially it took you to an article posted at 11.30am saying it was done and terms were agreed, and now it takes you to an article saying he's training with them and not confirming it from 16.07pm. Odd.

Nah fuck West Ham. Still think they're a nothing club. Plenty of clubs have got shiny new stadiums and done fuck all.

I think many of our fans are a bit deluded. Can‘t  think any reason why he should choose us over West Ham to be honest.

Got no issue with Byram if he joins them, whether its money, first team football, family reasons or whatever. That's fine and that's his choice.

But what is there to be envious of about West Ham? Seriously. Their history amounts to fuck all, they are run by a couple of grubby wide boy pornographers, they spend silly money on shite players, they are constantly appointing new managers lurching from one way of playing to another and have a totally imbalanced squad because of it.

They've had a half decent season so far, but that nearly imploded because of one injury and I could well envisage a scenario where they plummet down the table and Bilic is out of a job within the calendar year.

They've touched lucky with the stadium and they're in London. So what? They're another basket case club like Newcastle and Sunderland who can't make two good decisions in a row.

To be honest i'm shitting myself a bit, if they've got more pulling power than us now it doesn't paint a great picture for other prospective targets thinking about joining us. Isn't this the THIRD player West Ham have swooped in a got at the expense off us this season after Payet and Ogbonna? Doesn't look good does it

Seriously mate, you've lost all sense of perspective. It's happened to me before, and it happens to everyone. Don't stress about West Ham in the slightest until they put 2 or 3 strong seasons together.
