The Sun says that West Ham have rejected our 1.2m bid for Reo-Coker.

i hope we go back with another bid, he is a Dowie type player, and would make an immediate improvement to our midfield 'squad'.

i thought he had been a bit hit and miss myself, but I do think he is the TYPE of player we need

Not convinced by Reo-Coker - he certainly didn't have the impact at West Ham that they were hoping for having snaffled him from under our noses last year. Still, if Dowie rates him highly enough to go for him again at twice the price that West Ham paid for him last year, then who am I to argue....

hasn't set the world alight, and i think 1.2M is slightly overvaluing an average player

according to my West Ham mate s, he s been fairly impressive in an erratic team

Isn't he another dwarf?

And didn't he have some rather unpleasant things to say about Palace when he opted for Wet Sham instead of us the first place?

He's not worth that much.

We should go back with a smaller bid, they are a championship club now after all. :p

Pardew tapped him up last season, that's why he never signed for us. He only signed him and Nowland to stop us getting ahold of them.

If this is true what i cant understand is why weve waited so long to make a bid for the player? why not bid last month and then if its rejected go for someone else?

Arent Westham in financial trouble anyway? there wages must be huge

Disagree with both of those. West Ham mate of mine (season ticket holder, knows his football) speaks very highly of him - he's been consistently their best player throughout 2004.

If we don't sign him now and they don't go up, another Premiership club will pick him up in the summer.

He is a much improved player at west ham this season. When i told him my Appy Ammer mate that we had bid for him. He replied '' you can have any one of our players but him!!''

Certainly would be a usefull addition. He has already turned us down once though!!!

According to West Ham fans the only club linked with Reo-Coker is Birmingham maybe they are preparing for life after Savage.

Up the bid to 1.5m I say. Possibly go as high as 1.7.

Good long term prospect but I feel we would need to make room for long term prospects by getting rid of a few fringe players.

However I would prefer proven players on short term deals who could make an immediete impact at this level

My west ham friends (season ticket holders) say the same about reo coker and I agree with your comment that someone else will snap him up if we don't.

I'm upset about giving the Hamsters such a big profit, but if he's now ready to cut it in the Premiership (and it upsets their own play off chances :p ) then why not?

Have my doubts about whether he is ready to be the guy to transform our midfield in the last 15 games of the season and be the new attacking element to take the load off AJ. Karagounis & Bullard would both be better for that role short-term imo. But he has the potential to be a great signing long-term.

Couldn't agree more. He would be a great signing, long term, and IMO he would make a decent immediate impact at selhurst.

He is quality, saw him play for dons a few times and he was incredible. and he doesnt shut up, shouts at everyone geeing them up. Bit of a different way to look at this, If we get him it gives Wayne someone from the same sort of background to have in the team. Both lads from Heath, reckon Wayne has been told of this attempt to give an incentive to sign. Maybe...

Haven't looked at it from that perspective. I am a big fan of this lad and we should improve our bid. West Ham are still their for the taking in the transfer market, despite AP desperate plea to distract clubs from nicking all his decent players.

He would be a great long term signing if we could keep him at the club long term. If he is looking at moving from a club still in the search of promotion then what is to say that he would only want a move to us for 6 months and then to move on if we went down? And in that respect well I am not sure he is worth it and I would rather see someone who can come in at this level and make a proven impact and not take chances.

If he was at a smaller Division 1 club not after promotion then I would be more confidant of retaining his services if relegation occured

no matter who we go in for from the Shammers, they will always overprice them just so that they feel as if they've got one over on us. So if we do go for him, expect at least 1.5 or 1.75m to part hands, methinks.

I'd go for it, think he would fit in very well.

An astute signing, a player who would develop at Cpfc, shame the Hamsters wont flog him to us. They wont have a choice if they dont make the premier though.
