Early ‘exit’ for Irons striker

Jordan Hugill is facing a West Ham exit next season if the club maintains its Premier League status.

The Irons  can of course take an enormous step towards that against a depleted Stoke City at the London Stadium tomorrow evening .

The Irons were given a big boost by Chelsea’s victorious three goal comeback at St Mary’s yesterday.

That ensured that despite slipping a place in the league they remain in a relatively healthy 15th position six points clear of third off bottom Saints with games in hand on all those around them.

Hugill, meanwhile, has had little chance of figuring in the first team and ClaretandHugh has learned that he could be on his way to a decent Championship club on loan ONCE the Irons are safe.

He was bought as a striker who could produce immediately in the Championship should the worst scenario develop when things looked grim in the winter.

But the Irons will want a Premier League proven striker come the new season as David Moyes looks to entirely rebuild an inadequate and tired looking squad.

  1. Thought it was Carroll at long last!

  2. Only our club has a budget to prepare for relegation in advance but not to signing players to prevent relegation. I don’t think I’ve ever heard as something as ridiculous.

    • Definitely agree with you there WHTID, seems ludicrous, to be honest I would like to see Huggil given some game time, he reminds me a bit of Iain Dowie (am sure not all will be happy about that) he is ugly in appearance and also in the way he plays but I do think he would cause problems to the defenders that can’t defend in the PL which is about 80% of them…

  3. Not been given a fair chance but from what I’ve seen doesn’t look ready for the premier league. If Chico hasn’t been getting a game what chance has he got!

  4. It has to be what Moyes has seen on the training ground that has determined this as he has barely kicked a ball apart from the Daggers friendly.Always looked a panic buy for the club and as danbee says if Chicho cannot guarantee a starting berth then he is well down the pecking order especially as Carroll is on the verge of returning too.

  5. Someone needs to answers serious questions over this signing. I feel sorry for the lad as its not his fault. He didn’t ask us to shell out 10m r him. He’s nowhere near premier standard. In times like this when money is tight, what on earth were they (Sullivan? Moyes) doing?!

  6. That really is pathetic if true …my God who thinks up this rubbish at the club
