West Ham are understood to be interested in bringing Fabien Barthez back to The Premiership.

The former Manchester United keeper is suspended from French football until the end of 2005 after spitting at a referee in a friendly game in Morocco.

As the extension of his ban only applies to French football, The Hammers have explored the possibility of setting up a shock deal for the World Cup winner

I read this earlier, what a move that would be. He is much better than any keeper we have at the moment and maybe one of the best we have had in awhile if we manage to get him.

yip. something has to happen with him since he cant play in France. I wonder if a loan deal could come about.

Its been said West Ham need a keeper, if Barthez going to want to come back to England and can West Ham pay his wage?

sounds like they have droped intrest in him and want Carroll instead


Roy Carroll is ready to snub other offers to join West Ham.

The Northern Ireland international is currently in talks with The Hammers over a possible free transfer to Upton Park.

Carroll is in the market for a new club after leaving Manchester United last month.

no wonder they going for Carroll


Fabien Barthez seems set to stay at Marseille after the French Football Federation blocked any move away from France.

West Ham held talks with Barthez last week over a possible move back to England as they prepare for life back in The Premiership.

Barthez is believed to be considering a move away from Marseille after being banned until December 31 by the FFF and had made a move to England his top priority.

Hey i'm not being funny but i'd take Carroll instead of Barthez.. If we get him on a free then thats great, but i hope they don't pay him too much..

yer, i think Barthez is a good keeper but he can be dodgy and hey, what if he did something stupid like he did in France?

Carroll is a different kettle of fish, yer. it would be a reasonable signing i reckon

It's hard to say who is the better keeper but i would go for Carroll. Barthez is so unpredictable and he relived himself on the pitch among other numerous stunts lol!

any team outside the top 5 or 6 in england that is alot of money. i guess getting him on a free will help pay for these figures

He is on 18k a week.

18k is still quite a bit, but i guess as he was on a free then thats not too bad. I think he will do well for us and we got a good keeper.
