Fab’s one year deal raises big question

The news that Lukasz Fabianski had agreed a one year deal left an unanswered question in my mind…what’s to become of Nathan Trott?

The 21 year old keeper – having had his debut at Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round tie – has been hotly tipped as a big thing in the making for a couple of years or so.

He went out on loan last season but has been kept at the club this season, one assumes because he is seen to have a future here rather than away and Moyesie wants to monitor him .

Frankly, I was hoping that Fab would be around for another couple of years as he is right up there STILL as one of the best keeper I’ve seen at West Ham since the best…Phil Parkes.

But David Moyes will presumably be making his own plans, and whether they include seeing young Trott step up we can only guess at.

Decent goalkeepers aren’t the most expensive players on the market but hopefully there’s a firm plan in place for young Trott’s development.

  1. Think you’re on the right track with your assessments Hugh. Fab to stay for as long as he remains a ‘great’. Nathan to gain more experience, learning from Fab and others, allowing the good habits to rub off as he learns about being the West Ham United Premier League goalkeeper. Fingers crossed that he makes it – eventually. No rush and also no promises. Worst thing that could happen is we change manager in a few years’ time and they bring in their own ‘trusted’ man. This won’t change Nathan and his potential, though. Just needs to move on if this should happen. Probably following Wee Davey. That’s thinking a bit too far into the future for now. Nevertheless, Nathan Trott still has the chance of a terrific future.
