Hammers fans react as Lingard leaves


The Jesse Lingard saga appears to be finally over with his departure to the far east and a month’s training with Steve Gerrards Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ettifaq . It’s hardly being mourned among Hammers fans as shown in these random comments from Claret and Hugh followers.

  • Now we see the true colours of Jesse Lingard! I just hope that Stephen Gerrard and Al-Ettifaq can see them too. Buyer beware!
  • On yer bike, Jesse. It might save you some money!
  • He’s not our player, it’s all noise and no end product. I agree Moyes is paying too much attention to a non-player compared to his actual players like Cornet and Fornals. 
  • The biggest fool in all this is Moyes. If he was not good enough for Forest that should have been the end of it. 
  • A money grabber who shows no loyalty and is past his prime – any takers for him?
  • I’m sorry Lingard but I don’t see a queue of teams trying to sign you. Imo a pay as you play would be best for both parties. Coyi
