West Ham made Vermaelen approach

Hilariously, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce revealed he’d made an approach to Arsenal to take Thomas Vermaelen on loan.

Quite why he thought Arsenal would allow the captain to go, given that we’ve only got three centre-halves at the club, is beyond us, but the Walrus is going to have to look elsewhere for defensive reinforcements.

“I think under the circumstances at Arsenal with the situation they’re in with the Champions League and cup matches, they’ve had to use Vermaelen as soon as any of the two defenders are injured,” he said.

“I don’t think there’s any chance we’ll get someone of his quality, but it would be nice if we could.”

I suppose there’s the whole thing of you never know if you don’t ask, but reports that Allardyce also asked Scarlett Johansson to marry him could not be confirmed this evening.

Cute, Big Sam


What are the rules on recalling loanees? If it is possible to have ‘recall from loan on same day if Mertesacker/Kos can’t start’-clause and understanding with both Allardyce and Vermaelen that would actually happen even it was for just one game I don’t see any big problems with it… .. that is, given that Vermaelen would actually want to play a few games for them, and we get their second choice CB for backup. I mean, Thomas do have the WC to consider and doesn’t look likely to break into the team any time soon. If this would mean he… Read more »


What did I just read 😀


What happens if he gets injured playing for West Ham??


Its a wonder,how le prof never got such an idea!Ingenius! 😉


get off the comment section BIG SAM


Not entirely sure Big Sam can read. partly coz he is uneducated or often coz his fat cheeks are on the way.


now THAT is optimistic


I agree


I’m sure Vermaelen was flattered;) On a serious note though, I really don’t want Verma to go under any circumstances.

Arsene's handkerchief


gooner odst

In addition: AHHAAHAHHAahahhahaha

but seriously though if Vermaelen left now, our depth would be…wafer fucking thin.

AN other

I think he is going for wrong player.. What he need is Park to score those 20 goals for him.

Bould's Eyeliner

He took Chamakh from us last year… as much as I hate the Walrus, you can’t wish too much misfortune on anybody.


Dream on Samuel.


that Scarlett Johansson line was priceless

He's a blatant diver, but good at it

If it had said Susan Boyle I would have believed it.


What an idiot, may as well bid for Cahill while he’s at it


Baron Greenback foiled yet again!


Ah bless his cotton socks ha


Fat dreaming cunt


Even if i so badly want to kick a ball every now and then Fatcunt Sams dire westham is the last place i’d go to.

Sir lord comic

No shit.
If Scarlett’s up for grabs she’d make one hell of a physio.

King paul

Look you dumb ass gooner cunt, he isn’t a walrus, he’s a hippo. Got that?


We already helped them last year when we loaned them Chamakh. Haha


“I think under the circumstances at Arsenal with the situation they’re in with the Champions League and cup matches, they’ve had to use Vermaelen as soon as any of the two defenders are injured.”

That first half of that sentence is totally redundant. When a defender is injured, a reserve defender is used. Yes, Sam, we get it. This has nothing to do with our “situation” in cups. It’s just the meaning of a reserve player.


Hard luck Mr Big Sam. I heard Bale was on the bench last week so why not give that a go then.
You deluded cunt


What an ignorant fat twap. To think the Arsenal club captain! would join those bunch? This is an insult to Vermaelens abilities. He’s not only too good for them, he’s too Arsenal-class to be Playing under a cunt.


Hahahahahaha! I can’t believe my eyes. Sam the dreamer!

Ozil is a goooooner

Actually, fair play. Not Sam’s biggest fan by a long way but it does show a bit of intent from him to try and do it. Plus, to the outside, it probably does look like Verm is short of game time (hence why a loan could of been seen as beneficial).
That being said, this sounds like something someone would coin up on Fifa… Not a chance in hell I’d let Verm leave.


He can have Diaby.


No he can’t. Diaby might be a walking injury waiting to happen but he’s our walking injury waiting to happen and when he’s fit, he adds value to this team.

And as long as he wears our crest I will fucking support him.


Mickeroo- Well with that logic we’d still have players like Eboue still in the first team. If it wasn’t for a few thousand fans screaming their disapproval as he did his umpteenth clown impression, Wenger would still be professing his faith in Manu, and he’d still be losing games for us right now.


utter bullshit.


I thought Diaby is out injured for the rest of the season, so a loan would be pointless, or am I am missing something?

Toure Motors

I presume johnny heitenga was next on his rolodex

Dick Law

and I thought my jokes were bad

Elliot Ness

Sky is the limit Sam!

Daft Aider

Splurge all your budget on one banjanxed striker while your squad screams out for reinforcements in all other areas and then when you hit bottom 3 panic and try to loan in the league leaders captain – genius “slow clap”


n/b Can’t believe we were once linked with Clint Dempshit…phew dodged a bullet there


When Walrus gets the sack soon, he can always get a job as a stand up comedian. Stupid cunt.


Every team dreams of getting arsenal players as always.


jabba the Hutt would have more chance coaxing Franco Baresi out of retirement.

He's got no hair but we don't care...


Big fat-headed idiot.


So that’s Sam Allardyce, West Ham manager.
The same West Ham that got their knickers in a twist just last week cos the Fulham manager spoke about a failed bid to sign Morrison.
Apart from one being a loan and one an actual transfer, what’s the difference?


I wouldn’t loan him a fiver. Allarfyce, Pulis and Redknapp have got to be three Managers I dislike the most….Almost to the point of giving them concrete trainers, a plane trip, boot them out in tgevmiddle of the ocean and tell them to swim for the shore

2013-2014 = 2003-2004

I am curious to also hear what you, sir, have to say about: John Terry, Ashley Cole, Robin Van Persie, Emanuel Adebayour, and Samir Nasri.




That’s a mockery of Thomas vamarlan

big black clock

fucking idiotic dumb cunt my nutsack is a better manager than him

Gooner joe

Nolan said he’s got west ham DNA


Far be it for me to defend Sam, but he’d did not actually.
The interviewer asked him if he had made a loan offer and he said “no, Arsenal have too many games….we will not get someone of that quality” etc.
Still, why let the truth get in the way of a good story eh?

Naija Gunner

Why mention Arsenal? @Gt

Naija Gunner

If he so badly needed reinforcement, why can’t he go and find it elsewhere why Arsenal?

Virginia Goon

Just can’t picture vermaelen anywhere near bubbles. Bubbles and Verm just wouldn’t work. Verm is most certainly not interested in bubbles. He can’t like bubbles, can he ?


Aim high Willis! Aim high!


Its not his fault….too much freedom of choice is bad.

Siz C

Clever idea to replace verm with Carroll. Lol, don’t know what’s worse at west ham, is it their attack or defense???

We owe fat Sam a favour, we should give him Park

Damn it!

Hahahahahahaaha… This cracked me up :)))))


IF this is true, that’s funny. Big Sam would play TV5 upfront, since he’s a better finisher than Andy Carroll and scores more goals.
