Former Hammer Ian Wright says Stoke City pulled off ‘unbelievable business’ to get £24million for Marko Arnautovic. “Genius to get £24million for Arnautovic, unbelievable business,” said Wright. “I think West Ham will find that out soon,” he added
The record club signing looks like a transfer dud so far, as he has yet to contribute a goal or an assist in his six Premier League appearances for West Ham and he was sent off against Southampton in West Ham’s second game of the season.
Last week Arnautivic told the Daily Mail: “Expectation of me is high and I know people are not happy, I have apologised for the red card, it was stupid. And then I’ve been ill and I can’t change it. So it’s not been great and I know that. I hear people saying I came for £27million and have done nothing. I want to show the club they didn’t pay so much money for nothing.”
That aspiration will take some achieving; so far he’s looked shockingly incapable, lazy and inept.
I think he has a lot of quality the trouble with prices these days is, its hard to know where you are with them, sometimes when players go fo big money and the same may be said of Ayew their egos mean they feel they have to justify the money then when they can’t they lose confidence, he should stop thinking about what we paid and and just play his natural game, same for Ayew, I want to see how they do with a different manager as do many of us I am sure.
Sorry to say but i feel the only way we will see the best of him,Ayew,Snodgrass and half a dozen others is with a change of management.
