Poll verdict on Chicharito departure


West Ham fans are fully behind the decision to let Javier Hernandez depart the club for La Liga outfit Sevilla.

The striker has been looking for a move to a Spanish-speaking country for some months and is now seemingly within hours of getting his wish.

ClaretandHugh launched a poll over the weekend to gauge the fan reaction given that it leaves us currently with only two out and out strikers in the squad

And were either Seb Haller or Albian Ajeti to be injured our resources would be very stretched although none of that bothered the fans who seem glad to see the back of the Mexican.

Currently 2164 have voted at and more than two thirds have agreed that he should leave the club.

A total of 1650 were happy for him to depart (76.25 per cent) with just 514 (23.75 pc) wanting him to stay.
