Come on, give this Hammer some time PLEASE


Sometimes you have to wonder quite what people expect!

Already across the forums questions are being asked about Mo Kudus after he made a half an hour appearance in the team against Man City.

There was no doubting his enthusiasm and was on his way forward between two defenders at one point before being hauled down.

Yes there were some misplaced passes but this is a guy who has spent hardly any time at the club after becoming our final arrival of the summer.

He is widely respected among those who have watched him regularly for Ajax where he opened the season with a hat-trick after bagging 18 goals last season.

So it’s worth listening to the manager on this occasion who after the game declared:We might need to wait a little bit more time for Dinos and Mo to get settled in, but overall I am really pleased with how they have started.”

Yes we live very much in an instant society but come on guys let’s please not make the usual rush to judgement after such an incredibly short space of time.
