Emerson Palmieri - signed


West Ham United is delighted to announce the signing of Italy international defender Emerson Palmieri.

The 28-year-old has joined the Hammers on a four-year contract with a one-year option for an undisclosed fee from fellow Premier League club Chelsea.

A pacy and technically proficient left-back or left wing-back renowned for his stamina and attacking qualities, Emerson has won the UEFA European Championship, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League during a stellar career.

Born in Brazil, Emerson moved to Italian football in 2014, was granted Italian citizenship and switched international allegiance three years later, and has since won 27 caps, including a start in Italy’s Euro 2020 final victory over England at Wembley a year ago.

Unlucky.

Incorrect, Trundle.

Those rules don’t apply to qualifying games.

"I’d give him 20 mins tomorrow"

I dunno if the rules have changed since last season when your mob was in it, but he had to be registered before the first leg to be able to play in the second leg, cross yiddo son.

Re: Emerson Palmieri - signed
Nagel - fair points. 100-odd games over that period is not bad considering he's often had one or two supposedly 'better' left-backs ahead of him (Chilwell and Alonso, for example).

So we're not really talking about another Winston Reid here. Or, for that matter, another Winston Bogarde.

What is it with the name Winston?

Agree with the sentiment but you should probably include cup games in those stats, especially since he was playing for clubs in European competitions.

He played 71 games for Chelsea, not 33.
He played 37 games last season, not nearly 30.
In the last 4 seasons he played 100 club games and 27 internationals, not just 62 games.

I’d give him 20 mins tomorrow, then start with him on Sunday.

Unimaginative signing.

Has to start Sunday, not an overwhelming signing but a decent one who should improve us.

Re: Emerson Palmieri - signed
He's a no risk signing, you know what you're getting. I'm fairly pleased with it, without being too excited. Will be interesting to see if he comes in straightaway for Cress, or could he play both?

Re: Emerson Palmieri - signed
HG - he's lived in England for three full years, so he speaks the language. And although he only played 33 games for Chelsea, he did also spend the best part of last season on loan - and in the first team - at Lyon.

So it's not like he hasn't played games. He's played 62 games in 4 seasons - including almost 30 last season. He's not exactly Winston Reid.

Pedro 1:37 Wed Aug 24
Re: Emerson Palmieri - signed
Definitely better as a wingback. He was good for Lyon and excellent for Italy in euros.

I do think we will go for a back 5.

Solid signing, decent pedigree, knows the league

Averaging 6 appearances per year over 5 years with Chelsea equates to knowing the league

Re: Emerson Palmieri - signed
It seems like extending the transfer window beyond the start of the season gives chancers like GSB* the excuse to see how the season starts before finishing their purchases.

*Yes, I still blame GSB. We were like this before Moyes, so the most you can blame Moyes for is not reforming GSB.
