My Thoughts:
1. Ha! Good luck with that.
2. Been in the works. Salah is not favoured by Mourinho but he's a class player and has really worked at well so far at the Italian side.
3. Pedro is a good replacement but prying him off Barcelona will be very difficult.
4. Please yes. Benitez is a fantastic manager and can do wonders at West Ham.
5. I have a full post on this later but I will say it's not surprising.
@Spudsy2061 Would be a huge pull if West Ham did sign him.
@GermanBumbleBee Thanks! @CitySarajevo Yes please. I just want it to happen. We'd be bound to play attractive football then.
The thoughts on #1. That's funny.
Benitez? @Spudsy2061 Do you really think?
