Cottee: Classy Cresswell will get even better

CotteeheadphonesTony Cottee has  welcomed Aaron Cresswell to West Ham United and in an exclusive column with ClaretandHugh declared: “This lad is a classy  who will get better with us.”

The former Iron has seen a lot of Cresswell via his job as a Sky Sports pundit and commentator and is thrilled that he has committed to the Boleyn summer revolution.

He said: “Aaron has everything in his game. He’s particularly comfortable on the ball and looks a really good player going forward.

“I’ve seen him a lot and his distribution is particulaly good and I can see him setting up a real supply line for Andy Carroll. “

At a guaranteed £3.75 million with an appearance related clause that could take the deal to £7 million, TC reckons ut’s a good deal for both clubs.

He said: “I think that’s about par for the course for a Championship player but it I think it will turn out to be a better deal for us because there’s a lot more to come in my opinion.”

TC has been pleased to see the amount of activity going on at the club saying: “I don’t know much about the foreign boys but they both come with decent reputations.

“However, I do know that Aaron is a very good player and will become a much better player with us because he will be playing with better players.”

  1. I was a bit disappointed to be honest when we didn’t get some of the eye catching names we were being linked with!
    But now we have got cresswell I am much encouraged and fully believe we have signed the best left back of the lot we have been linked with!
    I also hear we are close to getting gus poyet’s laddie, another potential quality signing! COYI!

  2. Yes, Diego Poyet would be another very good aquisition. Works hard & would play well with Noble. He earned a lot of respect at Charlton & has pedigree. When you look at the purchases so far, they are astute & show intent. I believe that that the owners have listened to us & determined to change the quality of our game. That must be respected. We need to get behind them & push on the West Ham way. Positive feedback. West Ham 4 Ever.

  3. Would’ve preferred kolo
