Fans hand down their Nasri verdict

Hammers fans are split right down the middle over Samir Nasri’s future.

The club is holding an option on giving him a year’s deal but his absences through injury have been pretty regular throwing doubt over whether the club will decide to exercise that situation.

The player – despite being fit – didn’t appear in the match day squad yesterday at Watford, suggesting that maybe it’s now all bets off as far as his future as a Hammer is concerned.

And with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson available to the boss, and with Andriy Yarmolenko on the way back,  it seems likely to us that his hopes of staying on are now fading and dying.

The fans are equally uncertain of their feelings with a tiny majority believing the club should keep him on for another 12 months but the reality is that for that to happen the Frenchman will need to accept a pay as you play deal.

In a CandH poll 607 voted for him to get a new deal and 580 saying that we should wave him farewell.

  1. I’m surprised when I voted majority was No. Tho I think we should give Nasri a year especially IR can work our on £40-50k but if fit & in squad gets his £70k plus add ons. When he has played Nasri has been a game changer, he gets along with squad & MP knows how to get best out or him. Plus he is versatile; can play wings #10 or #8. To get a player or Nasri’s ilk even in free would be big wages over £100k look at Schurrle & think Nasri is better & lower wages. Not to mention a lot would want good sign in bonus too. So giving him a year why not he was our of football for a year so that could be why he is getting injured we don’t know. Greece are interested but maybe he will train with us again that would be nice & see from there. Since he was missing from squad tho looks like he was one if the players MP was going to let know they were no longer needed…. Obaing & Perez where also not in squad but Chic was.
    So it looks like its already done this I’d rather him on bench then Sanchez today. But great game.
