Report : Hammers bid for Benni

Report : Hammers bid for Benni

Various sources are reporting that West Ham have made a bid of £1.25 million for Benni McCarthy.

West Ham, under new owners are now free to spend wisley on players and builf their squad and are hoping to poach Benni who is reported to want out of Ewood Park.

But £1.25 million?! Are they taking the mick?

Hopefully Sam is not crazy as despite his age, McCarthy is worth more than what Hammers have apparently bid!

West Ham is the new Portsmouth. I wouldn't touch their money or promises. Maybe Tottenham can afford to not actually get paid for a few years but we don't have that luxury.

I would say £2.5 - £3.5 million would be fair... but I suppose you cant blame them for starting low!!!

Not sure we can expect a lot for him - a player that is approaching the twilight of his career? He fell out with Paul Ince & wanted to leave, he's not getting his own way with BSA and again he wants to leave; he fell out with his National side and seemd to be surprised that he was dropped. He is truly a player of talent but do we keep waiting for him to get his weight down and fitness levels up? Maybe it's time to look to the future! No doubt many will strongly disagree???

west ham is in such financial difficulty... according to epltalk, over the last 3 years west ham has: -£50 million owed to banks. -£40 million owed to other clubs for transfers. -The £40 million owed to other clubs, includes £20 million compensation to Sheffield United. -Alan Curbishley is still owed his severance deal after winning his case for constructive dismissal -No-one owes West Ham any money, all player transfer fees that were received paid the bank debt immediately -C.B. Holdings had borrowed money against the next two seasons season ticket revenue -There is no money for strengthening the squad. i just can't see it happening
