Elliot Lee 6 West Ham First Team 4


elliotleeElliot Lee scored twice in a West Ham United U21 pre season friendly game against Braintree Town this evening to take his pre season tally to six goals.  This was his third double in the pre season campaign. His first double came against Havant and  WaterlooVille on the 15th July in a 2-1 win, this was quickly followed  5 days later by another brace in a 4-2 win over RCD Espanyol. Just 9 days later he nets two again against Braintree. The whole of West Ham’s first team have managed just four goals between them in their pre season friendlies so far.

Lee  made his debut for the U21′ development squad in 2011 before signing his first professional contract in August 2012. His first appearance in a first-team squad was on 1 January 2013 when he was an unused substitute in a Premier League game against Norwich City. Lee then made his professional debut for West Ham, as a 78th minute substitute for Ricardo Vaz Tê, on 16th January 2013 in a 1–0 defeat in the FA Cup 3rd Round replay at Old Trafford against Manchester United. In 2013 he signed for Colchester United on a one month loan where he scored one goal. Lee signed a new two and a half year deal earlier this year.

Many fans are asking why he is not training with the first team and why he wasn’t invited to the New Zealand tour.

    If this young man is scoring goals,,,. Then what else has he got to do? Isn’t this our biggest problem? I don’t understand, does Sam not like him either.

    I remember vividly Cottee scoring loads then introduced to the 1st team and heading in off the bar against Spurs….. I watched the whole of Cottee career and Alvin Martin.
    We must bring the youth through and Elliot Lee is in the Cottee mould. Play him.

    . Valencia, Zarate, Lee….keep it on the floor…Morrisson, Noble and our other new boys to thread it through……
    Sam……………thanks but no thanks…..zero versatility…..( I could do better)

    We have the players now thanks to S & G..
    we desperately need the Manager sooner rather than later

    love WHU
