The clearest indication that the transfer market went totally bonkers in the summer can be seen in the following figures:
With Diafra Sakho and Aaron Cresswell tipped to return to the squad this week it gets harder and harder to see how any of the summer additions are going to get games.
Fair play to Slaven Bilic. Hewants to train at the London Stadium in order for the lads to become better adjusted to the place.
Time and again fans on the ClaretandHugh forums ask the same question: Who is responsible for the recruitment of players at the club.
West Ham managed to do a ‘first ever’ on Wednesday night against Accrington Stanley.
Maybe Slav is a supreme optimist but the news that Arthur Masuaku will be out for a minimum of six weeks came as a big surprise this morning given his report on the injury yesterday.
When you hold on to your best and lose one who really hasn’t been doing it for you, then it’s fair to say West Ham United have enjoyed a good transfer window.
Manchester City 3 Irons 1
All that mattered was the result – ok a cliche but never truer than this afternoon.
