Loic Remy’s name was being thrown around regularly as a Hammers target a while back – yesterday he showed that was a bullet swerved.
One eminent London website – in handing out their ratings – gave the striker a mere three points declaring that two of those were for lacing up each boot.
Remy had often been mentioned in the past as £10 million player. It may be unfair to judge on one game but I will. Not for us thanks.
When one considers that is the price we paid for Dimi Payet a certain perspective is thrown on this matter as it is when considering another former Queens Park Rangers front man.
Charlie Austin – like Remy before him -was widely touted for the Irons at £15 million and eventually left for £4 million. He has since made five appearances for one goal.
Despite much criticism – particularly on the Austin affair – the club stood its ground and brought in exactly the right guys.
And to finish on an up note, after my previous criticisms of him, I thought Emmanuele Emenike looked a real player yesterday!
