Irons respond to ‘Chicharito for Besiktas’ report

HernandezBW726Javier Hernandez will not be sold to Besiktas or anywhere else for half of what we paid for him as is currently being reported.

Once again The Sun – having picked up a report from Goal.com (yep, that’ how it works these days)  – is repeating the line that the striker is set to make a £7.5 million switch just six  months after joining the Irons for £16 million.

Quite where these stories come from is anyone’s guess but just like the ‘Carroll for Chelsea’ nonsense this too is a load of old pony.

We were told from a senior  Hammers source this morning it again simply isn’t true as he laughed: hat? Absolutely no way.”.

If anyone can really imagine David Gold and David Sullivan taking a £8.5 million hit on such a player six months after buying him they are living in  different world to most Hammers supporters.

  1. I said at the time he was a poor buy and would not fit into the way we play. I am still not convinced he was a good buy. I fear we will have no option but to take a big hit on the transfer. My only problem is that no one is accountable within the club for these bad financial decisions. We have a director of football who should be held accountable for these financial blunders !

  2. If we play like Everton did under Moyes, Hernandez would be a good fit most games, they could actually pass the ball around in midfield and build play and pressure.

  3. He is an out and out pick pocket, not good upfront by himself so, why not play him like Aunotovic and play Marko upfront, then you may seem so goals, he was not an out and out striker at Manu.

  4. Let him go but not for 8million . That’s a reflection on how poorly we have managed our transfers over the past two or three years . If we were a team that could afford to lose we could probably let him play a few games , hopeing he scores and bump up the price . A bit like Arsenal and Wenger . Reckon it’s better to wait for the Sumner window ,, would then fetch more even if it was for a Championship side . We have Lanzini doing the same job but miles apart from Hernandez . The little pea wouldn’t last 90mins in a whistle . Unless something drastic happens to improve his play . Moyes has said he wants to add to the squad and not deplete the sqaud but maybe this is a chance to bank some cash ready for the summer .

  5. Well Hernandez scored a much needed goal today lets see if he kicks on and starts scoring loads now COYI !!!

  6. And he scores!!!!

    This window is really getting on my wick! Most of the papers & the TV are now just repeating the Carroll to Chelsea story as if it is a fact. Not ‘according to some reports’ even.

    With Only a draw & Lanzini getting injured is there any chance our useless owners will get their fingers out & do something about adding to this squad? Probably not.

    That’s my Victor Meldrew rant over.
