Moysie doesn’t believe new boy will let anyone down

Manager David Moyes believes Jordan Hugill is ready to make an impression on the Hammers season.

There was an air of disappointment around the Hammers fan base when the former Preston North End player arrived for £10 million rather than a big name signing.

But the boss doesn’t believe he’s a player to let anybody down and once he get used to life in his new surroundings he can do very well.

Moysie said: “I’m hoping Jordan Hugill can have as a big an impact as Antonio and Cresswell. I think he’s ready.

I think it’ll take him a bit of time to get used to his new surroundings, but he won’t let us down with his commitment and effort.”

He added that he hopes Antonio will have a chance of being available and said that Winston Reid is now coming on a bit.

He added: ” Jose Fonte could do with a couple of reserve games, but he’s training, and we need all the numbers we can.”

  1. This is by his own words definitely one of his own picks, so a good benchmark to judge him by, He also described him as a bustling centre forward with a high work rate that defenders won’t enjoy playing against, lets hope that is the case as Allardyce always had with his forwards sometimes its more about what they do for the team than how many goals they score, if he can create the mayhem that allows Hernandez to thrive he could be worth his transfer fee on that alone.

  2. There’s no doubt we all want him to succeed….show us what you can do , Jordan. COYI !

  3. I’ve never seen him play, but I’ve heard the same as everyone else, and if he is the bustling strong running powerful target man who is good in the air, that I’ve heard about he could work out well.
    Carroll plays one third of every season, and Hugill will replace him if he can get the best out of Hernandes, knock holes in defences and score a few too. We need one like him to complement the others.

  4. While I agree with the sentiments above and hope Jordan scores on debut, I think No 32 you should be careful of hoping that he causes “mayhem” 😉
