‘Eze won’t be our saviour’ says Irons fan

News that West Ham may be losing out in the battle to sign Eberechi Eze from Queens Park Rangers has brought a sharp response from a Hammers fan and Claretandhugh Facebook group follower simply named as Saul @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/

The reality is maybe that such a highly prized summer target can’t be as good as he is being claimed to be if Rangers are ready to take the first or second offer from the only club to offer a fee wiith around another eight weeks to go in the transfer window.

Here’s how Saul sees it

 What baffles me is why any young player who is being touted as a potential future England star would want to go to a Palace team that, without Zaha, are surely relegation candidates.

Certain people in the media tell us all who the manager wants, the sillier fans get all hyped up over a player they barely know anything about and then throw their toys out of the pram when we don’t sign that player.

Eze isn’t going to be our saviour, neither is Benrahma or Watkins or anyone else. Let’s just see who comes in and who goes out and look forward to supporting the team, whoever is in it.

  1. Too right. I know that this site runs on speculation at this time of year but i expect on 2 or 3 people truly know what DM plans are.
    I won’t be getting interested in any player until we see him with a claret and blue shirt on .

  2. There are no such thing’s as “ saviors “ . We have the basis of a good team / squad at the moment and with a few player changes we are looking good for next season under David Moyes . It is a team effort and shouldn’t be down to one player to improve the situation .
    Nonsense to talk of saviors like they are the be All & end all . We need a few players to be adaptable when a formation change is needed . That is really all we need . And to repeat what I said in a previous post ( without arthritis ) if everyone gives 100% and play to thier strengths we can be a team to create havoc in the Premiership . We are looking like a formidable team at the moment with the endeavor and commitment shown after the lockdown .

    • The “saviour” syndrome is what always lands us in the proverbial ****. Controversial but I think our saviour is here and his name is David Moyes. If reports of his transfer strategy are correct, I.e. ignore big names, strengthen the defence, buy young fit players and promote academy stars, then forgive me if I’m wrong but isn’t that what West Ham fans have been screaming out for for 10+ years now?? Let’s not mention how he has made our current squad 100% confident in attack for the first time in years.

  3. Thanks for the post, Hugh (and the diplomatic edit!!)

  4. I’m sceptical to Eze as well. He has had a great season at QPR, but the years’ before that he has not produced very much. He is young and definitely talented, so it could be his “breakthrough” season where he continues performing to a good PL standard; or he could have had a great season in Championship but not continue the progression.

    If the financial circumstances were different I would support going or Eze, but in the current times and our financials where they are at – I don’t believe this is the type of player / position we should prioritize our spend. That said, I won’t be disappointing if he wears claret and blue come September 🙂

  5. Eze is one of the highest quality players in the championship, better than any in the two teams that had automatic promotion, likewise Watkins, we could sell Diangana to WBA to raise the funds to buy him.

  6. Well said Saul. Totally agree that we need to see who comes in and who gets sold – whatever happens the real fans will get behind DM and the team. As long as he shores up the defence as that’s the real concern. As for comment above on selling Diagana – someone’s obviously been on the pop for breakfast! Diagana will be like a new signing for us so we want him to stay…COYI

  7. If the player is a priority target for the manager and wants to come, and we dont get him simply because we have to ‘sell before we buy’, and he then signs for a rival club in the meantime, no I wont be happy about it.

    If the manager isn’t convinced enough about the player, or the player is not interested in playing for us, then that is obviously fine.

  8. I’m not fussed with one man band players anymore. I don’t care how many party tricks they’ve got. I’m sure with Moyes we will get more solid team players like souchek and Bowen. Players that can attack and defend and work hard for the team. That’s what we need going forward. Our form post lockdown was top ten. That’s because Moyes narrowed the team down to the players who worked hard for the team. We don’t need anymore show ponies.
