Quantcast

Hammers signing of the season

When West Ham announced the signing of Polish goalkeeper Łukasz Fabiański for £7m many Hammers fans were underwhelmed, to say the least. They had been rumours of perhaps making a cheeky punt for Jack Butland and here was Pellegrini signing a 33-year-old from a relegated club in Wales. The natives were unimpressed!

Many had thought he had been bought as a backup keeper to Adrian and he would struggle to be first choice under Manuel but what a revelation he has been so far and easily an early contender for West Ham signing of the season.

His numerous saves so far this season have reminded me of some of the West Ham greats between the sticks. In recent times since the Premier League was formed in 1992, he is fast on his way to commenting on a top three spot for me personally only behind  Ludo Miklosko and Robert Green. It is too early to say at the moment but maybe in time he can surpass those two great Hammers.
