Merson has a go over Arnie!

Paul Merson has had a major dig at West Ham and Marko Arnautovic.

Arnie signed a new contract to end speculation of a move to China. 

But the Irons have endured a serious dip in form, losing their last three games in all competitions.

Merson has had a major dig at the club as a result, insisting that Arnie will merely leave the club in the summer, regardless of his new deal!

Writing in the Daily Star, he said: “Marko Arnautovic signing a contract extension at West Ham is a farce – and I think there’s a massive problem there with or without him.

“They got desperate and threw more money at him to stay but why didn’t he start in the FA Cup game against AFC Wimbledon?

“They got thrashed and then put the news out straight afterwards. Come on!

“They are only delaying the inevitable because this will all come back up again in the summer and I won’t be shocked if he goes.

“He’s their most important player. He’s quick, makes runs, scores goals – when he fancies it.

“But over the last few weeks you wouldn’t have paid anything for him.

“It’s not all about him though. West Ham can’t use that as an excuse. They’ve been awful.

“And if the players have let this unsettle them then what does that say about them?”

  1. To be honest i can’t disagree with any of them comments.

  2. Merson is an idiotic mess, but couldn’t agree with him more on this one.
    Should’ve let the moody **** go when it was obvious he didn’t want to stay, as I think Merson’s correct and he’ll sod off in the summer anyway, most likely for less than the £45million offered by the Chinese.

  3. If the stories are to be believed we have earmarked Maxi Gomez as Arnie’s replacement when he hopefully leaves in the summer. Happy with that. Get a couple of top class full backs in their prime and with the likes of Yarms, balbuena, Lanzini etc back from injury we’ll have a quality XI.

  4. I like me merson on soccer Saturday but he does talk rubbish at times.not necessarily about this but he has been trying all season to suggest arnie should be elsewhere as he is too good for us and that top clubs should be buying him

  5. I agree Merson is one of the main pundits who has been suggesting Arnie should play for a bigger club than West Ham all season. Can’t disagree with anything he’s said here though.

  6. He is right… that contract means nothing they just gave him that so he gives 100% before he leaves in the summer…taken for right mugs…
    What a mess this club is again..
