Same old faces, same old rumours and sadly the same old Moyes.
We seem to be constantly linked with James Ward-Prowse, a one trick pony, Harvey Barnes, decent but no world beater and Harry Maguire, slower than the QEII
We have long held ambitions to be a regular top six club , but concentrating on players like the above hardly sends out a confident statement of intent.
Apart from last season, West Ham United has seen a mini renaissance in the last three years and we really should have kicked on.
Our Supremo`s obsession with safety first football and relying on counter attacks is going to end in tears. This whole strategy is why the likes of the played out of position, Scamacca is seeking a move.
Yes, we do have some highly talented youngsters coming through from the Academy, but we still need seasoned Premier League players to reinforce our squad.
For crying out loud, the Irons are now ranked as the 16th most valuable club in Europe, so surely now is the time for the club to show some ambition.
Not for one minute am I suggesting that we go all out guns blazing and grab an expensive marque signing, but at least raise the bar a little.
This post is not having a go at our Supremo, who as reported earlier on CandH, is totally responsible for all signings, whilst Tim Steidten is “bedding in” – whatever that means.
But his fixation with defenders will not give us that much needed creativity and strike power we need in order to compete as a top 6 club on a regular basis
Yes, we did win the Europa Conference League final, but lest we forget our opponents had over 74% possession. If we insist in adopting that strategy again next season , I fear another relegation dog fight beckoning.
We really have to change our collective mindset, if we going to challenge the big boys !
