West Ham bid £2 million for Benni

West Ham bid £2 million for Benni

Skysports is reporting that West Ham have lodged a £2million bid for Benni McCarthy, more than the £1.25 million than was first thought to have been tendered.

West Ham have a new lease of life in the transfer window as new co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have come in and promised funds to boss Gianfranco Zola, and they have targeted McCarthy to brighten up their attacking options.

Big Sam has already admitted that if a big came in that was acceptable then McCarthy would be allowed to leave Ewood Park - but the bad news for West Ham is that the £2 million bid is not the £3 million that Rovers have in mind.

Looks like a case of try again Eastenders.

I dont think this will tempt Rovers to sell, who can we buy to replace with £2 million?

Beattie is going for 2 million, and so is Beckford? but if benny wants to leave, let him go, now we have niko to smash home the goals!

I don't want him to go but if he does it needs to be for more than this! £3.5m would suffice but we need to find someone else to partner Niko! J-Rob and Niko wouldn't work and Di Santo & Kalinic...maybe but the partnership would need more time to gel than we have available!

But maybe the replacement needs to be the main consideration? £3 million at least I say and then buy someone like Gudjohnsen or a second striker similar to that but not on as higher wages to play off Niko... Niko is the main guy for me now!

With Roberts injured and Kalinic and DiSanto not scoring league goals we would be mad to sell Benni especially for this poor amount. I know he's 32 and we won't get much for him, but if another one of our strikers gets injured, or Dunn gets injured again the only person left would be Mikey Delap - and I don't reckon he bag the goals we need - no offence MD!

Seriously though - Beattie and Beckford are not good enough replacements - Beattie doesn't score enough and Beckford has a lously first touch (and attitude) for a player in the Premier League.

If Benni goes will the money be up front?? I wouldn't like to deal with west ham? or is it another case of playing with monoply money on the never never? and finally 2 million isn't enough.
