Groundhog day as media agrees to disagree


Simon Jones writing for the Daily Mail claimed on Monday that Everton looks likely to lose out in the race for free agent Jesse Lingard, who is ready to sign again for West Ham.

Not to be outdone, James Anderson writing for Sun on Tuesday added West Ham is edging closer to the signing of England international quoting that bookies have slashed their odds overnight on him joining the Hammers, like that that was some concrete proof!

The reality is somewhat duller with no change to the situation in weeks and David Moyes is left in limbo as we face groundhog day over and over again.

Surely if the 29-year-old really wanted to sign for West Ham he would have made intentions clear weeks ago.

The latest story claims he would only sign for Everton as a last resort, how charming, let’s hope we don’t just sign him at the end of the transfer window because no one else wanted him.  We want players who want to come and play for the badge.

  1. Totally agree with you, Sean. Lingard has been acting the prima donna for quite a while. Having both his brother and father as a big influence on his career means three people have to be sold on a move to the Hammers, or anywhere else for that matter. And the money offered is obviously a big factor. I reckon the badge doesn’t matter so much to Lingard as it’s not a Man U one.

  2. Or Lingard wants to see how ambitious we are and is waiting to see who comes before deciding between us and Newcastle… I have a suspiscion that is the case plus the longer he holds out (up until a point) the more he is likely to be offered.

    This could be the last big move of his career, who knows its mostly journalistic speculation
