Hammers need a deep financial window hat


Hammers need a deep financial window hat

I’m not going to the anti Moyes bandwagon, hard though I find that to be, but the Hammers need a deep financial window hat this winter writes Claret and Hugh Facebook follower Anna Ssasin.
In games such as the one we watched yesterday against Bristol City it may be to our benefit that players like Kudus are not available.

Hammers need a deep financial window hat

Despite being quality how would he have fared being kicked off the park? The Premier League team were outplayed more by the physicality and by a team that had something to prove. Poor kids attitude over rich kids attitude!
The concern I have is something that I and others have said over and over we have no strength in depth and games like this prove.
We have possibly had a situation where injuries to Paqueta,  which initially was minor and may become more than that now, saw him perhaps being over-used.
The injury to Bowen, Kudus, now away for Afcon along with Aguerd, and probably allowing others to leave in the hope only of bringing others in, really could leave us lacking support.
Are our youngsters able to step up?  Maybe, maybe not as we are seeing with Divin Mubama but the reality is the club will need to have a very deep hat to pull those rabbits from regardless of Tim Steidten’s early successes in the market!
