ClaretandHugh was the first site to break the news today that the chase for Alexandre Lacazette is dead.
We were told by a senior insider that he has made it 100% clear through his agent that he has no interest in joining us.
Here’s how CandH Facebook Forum members at https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/ reacted to the news.
O Moving on then! Are there any other good strikers that we’re linked with at present?
O Pity really, he would have been great for us, but no need for half-heartedness in a big project like ours, and just have to move on. There will be other strikers.
O Got to be honest I never really expected him to join us. Surprised we haven’t shown more interest in Dzeko or Bony.
O His loss.
O Agree with Ray ⬆️ I like Dzeko always scored when he had a run of games for Man City.
O Don’t wanna come to WH-don’t want him!
O Of all the strikers we have been linked with he has the best goal ratio, while also fitting the age profile and type of striker we want
O Shame but at least we know where we stand now and have plenty of time to attract others. I’m a little gutted as I thought he would have been the very best option of all those spoke about.
O Well we already knew he wouldn’t come as he wanted to play champions league football. No surprise there. We move on to new targets.
O Fair enough. Let’s move on now. I’m sure we all only really want players that really want to play for us.
O Well poop….welcome Batshuayi.
He had big ears anyway !
Showing your age there johnboy…..classic advert, probably only you and me remember it, Sally Thomsett lovely girl…
There’s no secret there Winslow ! Lol,
Heard enough about transfers , all Ott crapp ! So treat it with a bit of humour !
It happens when it happens ! Personally I would give sakho another year with carol and a new boy on board and let Valencia go !
A c/h a r/b and a assassin in m/f , spuds have 2 now , dembele and wanyama , that’s the route spuds are going down , better get the ankle pads out ! To be fair all successfull clubs has a animal or 2on board ? Fact ?.
Who cares Batmans on his way and he was first choice,
Now we need a couple more to cover Sak and Enner leaving if they do,
I think we may have dodged a bullet with lacazette…..could you imagine us signing lacazette for 35m + and him getting injured or just not settling well to the rigours of the premier league? …as much as i liked the thought of having him up top for us i was always a little apprehensive about the money we would have to spend. Westham are not on the level where we could spend 30/40m and write it off like chelsea did with torres if it didnt work out. Spending that much on a player would affect our whole budget and take away from strengthening other areas of the squad…..imho …ive never been a fan of putting all your eggs in one basket …look how carroll turned out even though this season he has redeemed himself a little we all expected more …
