Hugill ready to prove the knockers wrong

It’s hard not to admire Jordan Hugill despite his problems at West Ham.

It’s also hard not work out why the buy who signed him – David Moyes – had so little faith in him that he failed to give him any real chance to show himself off.

Two loan moves later however, the 27 year old continues to talk himself up and given the circumstances it’s hard not to be impressed by the guy.

We should all love a battler and he fully intends to use the opportunity he has been offered of a season’s loan at QPR to make a few points to the disbelievers.

Having already scored for the Championship outfit he has been expressing his feelings on the move to London and where he intends to go from here after deciding on the corss London move rather than a permanent deal with Wigan.

He said: “I have no regrets at all. Going from Preston to West Ham is something I could never have dreamed of in my whole life. I’d do it over and over again, regardless of what happens, I’d do it 100 times over.

“Now for me, I want to prove everyone wrong thinking that I can’t be this Premier League player anymore.

“They think I’m just an average Championship player, when really if I get back to my form that I was at Preston, I could be up there with some of the best in the league.


“I’ve not done anything wrong,” he added. “I’ve kept my head down, I’ve kept working hard knowing that if a chance comes, I want to take it.

“I came into the game late in my career, so I need to play games and I think that coming here (QPR) was the best option for me.”

  1. Good for him. Hes a decent lad so I hope he does make a go of it. I was surprised to see him sent out on loan given that we dont have an abundance of strikers at the club.

  2. I feel really sorry for him, as he says, he’s done nothing wrong.
    We’ll never know the reason why we bought him, I cannot believe it was in case we were relegated as some have suggested.
    Wouldn’t it be strange if he had a great season at QPR and then came back and did a ‘Snodgrass’.

  3. Great start to the season boys😁. Perhaps you should of kept Hugill after all 😂. Hopefully we will be swapping places with you at the end of the season 😉.
    Come on you R’ssssssssss

  4. I’m going to be keeping tabs on the guy.Hope He keeps scoring for QPR.And I Hope He does shut all the doubters up.He’s still a Hammer at this point.I like the fact that He is so positive after what Hes gone through.
