CandH Exclusive: Irons admit tricky new striker problem after Ings injury


Exclusive By Hughie Southon

West Ham have a real transfer window dilemma following the injury to new signing Danny Ings during the Everton game.

Suggestion that it was picked up in the last few minutes of the game have been denied by a club insider who explained that he had received an impact injury with second of appearing off the bench.

We had been told after he signed that the “balls were in the air” over a possible second striker arriving but such is the position at the club it is becoming increasingly difficult to know what to do for the best

A key London Stadium insider told ClaretandHugh exclusively: The problem is Cornet due back soon, but there is always the possibility with such an injury he may break down again. On top of that is the question of whether Ings will recover in three  weeks or will it be  much longer.

If we bring in a player and both recover we have too many strikers and long faces, but if neither recover we are short.”

  1. Cornet can run the wing. Better safe than sorry. Other Clubs carry multiple Strikers.

  2. So now we call him Dabby Ings? (Hugh, you really should have gone to Specsavers!)

    I agree with the Pessimist comment above. And since when did Cornet become a striker? I know he is a versatile player but let’s not stretch the truth. We are down to Michail Antonio, yet again, as the only recognised striker.

    Every time I hear of another Hammer down, I can’t get the song ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ outa my head! Gianluca Scamacca, Danny Ings … And another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust!
