Recommended Posts

West Ham have been absolutely shafted there xD

West Ham aren't half panicking, they've literally bought another Robert Snodgrass just with a better name. 

He's said goodbye to the players and staff at Stoke so the chances are this story is true, he'll be playing at the London Bowl next season.

At least Snodgrass can take a FK and knows he is a winger.

Great player on his day but not really consistent, I feel like a decent scouting team would be able to identify better players for £24m.

To be fair I think West Ham are firmly cementing themselves as top 10 and shouldn't have any flirtations with the drop.

You could have said the same for QPR when they came up.

Cesar, M'Bia, Rémy, Granero and Ji-Sung Park? Quality, Cesar was one of the greatest goalkeepers around at the time and I remember it shocking me every time I read it. They still put Robert Green in goal but still. QPR shouldn't have been relegated but in reality they just didn't work together.

Literally so many Stoke fans were against this until we saw the number. Dude isn't worth that cash at all, 24 mil for him and good bye, enjoy your decent winger.

If he can (finally) become consistent then he will be more than worth it. I think hes an excellent player 'on his day'. But, 24m is a great deal for Stoke as things stand right now.

I think it must be a typo and they keep forgetting to put the decimal point between the 2 and the 4. Even at £2.4m from what I've ever seen of him it would be too much. Not happy with this. Let's hope I'm proved wrong.

Apparently Stoke are lining up Ashley Young as their replacement for Arnautović. I see they're resorting to signing bellends. Jack Wilshire is next.

I saw that and I'd take both. If we can sign both for the amount Arnie costs that'd be great.

Ashley Young would be a decent signing for Stoke if he can stay fit. But he seems like the type of player happy to stay on higher wages at United to play the occasional game as a makeshift full back. Another English player letting his talent go to waste.

What a deal for Stoke! I don't think he's a bad player, but his biggest quality imo is his work ethic. Other than that he's fairly average. For £24m I'd expect a better overall player to be brought in.

Ignoring the fee, he's a solid player. Knows the league, can play in a variety of positions, get's goals. I don't see much wrong with it. Yes the fee is not realistic but that's the case for a lot of the signings these days.

I actually think Stoke to fight relegation could be a real shout next season. On the field, Stoke to West Ham isn't a massive jump in quality, only size of club and potential. It's not really positive vibes coming from the Britannia this year.

West Ham once again offering more than they should. They are gonna make Arnaoutovic their new Diva I suppose (since Payet is gone :D)

That's quite a lot of money for the five or six games he chooses to turn up. 

A Manager like Slaven may get the best out of him, but I can't see the likes of Mark Noble being happy if he doesn't improve his attitude.

£24mil and £100k a week. Jesus Christ.

I'm guessing this was done to balance out the bargain of getting Javier Hernandez for £13m.
