Fan’s view: West Ham is PL’s vampire club


West Ham is experiencing its worst transfer window in many years with club insiders even admitting the a number of players are and have refused to join the club.

Many on Claret and Hugh forums have given their views on the whys and wherefores of the situation and the reason why.

Here regular Claret and Hugh Facebook member Graham Moncar speaks for many in offering his views on the problems and what should be done about them.

This situation within our club isn’t about turmoil in our transfer system, I believe it’s much deeper than that.

Players talk to other players, backroom staff talk to other backroom staff and I think people within the football world have made West Ham a problem club.

Whether it’s Moyes negative tactics or training methods or a thousand other reasons West Ham has become the vampire team of the Premier League.

We have lost most of our backroom staff and I think David Sullivan has got to stand up and clear the decks and bring in a new manager and let Tim Steidten do his job with the help of Nobes and hope these two can have time to bring in three or four  players before the transfer window closes.

    Given everyone has had a say about this topic.
    Sometimes the simple and obvious is the best solution,
    well said.

  • Pessimist says:

    Could not agree more. Let’s get the Moyes Out Petition up and signed. If Sullivan won’t act let’s make him.

  • Pav says:

    Spot on. It’s amazing the amount of problems that would be solved sacking Moyes. Let Steidten show what he’s about and line up a replacement for Moyes who players actually want to play under
