Hugill can’t make Irons return in emergency

Jordan Hugill’s goal scoring blitz has erupted at an awkward time for the Irons and drawn huge praise from his QPR loan manager Mark Warburton.

And despite the Hammers maybe looking light on strike power following Michail Antonio’s injury, CandH was told this morning there is no agreement for the 27 year old to return from the Championship in January should we need him.

The Hammers discard has now  managed five goals for the south west London outfit  – just one less than he managed at  at Middlesbrough in the whole of last season.

Indeed whilst he was at Preston North End he managed just just 10 in his final season which had many Hammers fans wondering why David Moyes had shelled out £8 million for the striker.

It would be easy to knock manager Manuel Pellegrini for letting him out on a second season-long deal  with just Haller and Ajeti available.

However, there has been no indication Hugill would suddenly find his shooting boots after three seasons in the shadows with Middlesbrough disinterested in keeping him at The Riverside.

However, Rangers boss Warburton told the Ealing Times that with the correct service, as he is getting now, he will continue his great start to the season.

He said: “Jordan will score goals – he will score goals for us because he gets in those good positions.”

  1. Great news we have for the season thx u irons 👍👍👍

  2. How about Okazaki now that his move to Malaga collapsed? Good to come off bench and works his socks off.

  3. Many thanks for making my day, your loss is our gain, hopefully he will carry on knocking ’em in.

  4. Good luck to the guy, this is going to be a great boost for his confidence if he continues this form.
    I still don’t believe he is a PL quality striker though. The benefit for us, if he carries on scoring, will be to invite offers for his services in the summer.

  5. I love this guys persistence and determination.I was always hoping for the best to Huggil.Im glad He is kinocking in goals and proving his doubters wrong.There is absolutely no indication whatsoever that He could not do this in the Prem.I am suddenly following him in QPR’s hilights and his goals are well taken(except for that miss of the season).He positions himself well and with the right service ,is banging in the goals.He has only played 105 mins and has 5 goals.What if He gets 20 goals + , do we keep him for next season ? Don’t forget people were knocking the lad without him ever playing a game.I hope He carries on scoring and shuts his doubters up.
