Report: Midfielder on way for medical

SnoddyWEST HAM are this morning reported to have won the race for Robert Snodgrass.

And The Sun is claiming the Hull midfield man will have a medical today after we saw off the advances of Burnley and Middlesbrough.

The Hammers put in a bid of £6 million plus add-ons which the media have rounded up to £10 million but could of course work out at less.

It is understood that Snodgrass was keen on a move to the London Stadium from the start of negotiations although he is likely to become a part of the wider squad rather than an automatic first team starter should the deal go through.

With Dimi Payet on his way, Slaven Bilic was keen to bring in a body for body although no one is claiming there is any similarity between the two!

  1. Nothing more than a journeyman, thought Dumb and Dumber were trying to take the club forward. This is not the type of player any top club have been interested in yet our chairmen think he is good business. All they are doing is keeping the club ticking over around mid table, just waiting for a takeover bid like they did at Birmingham.

  2. Completely different sort of player but I am reminded of a quote from the late, great, Bill Shankly that “A football team is like a piano. You need eight men to carry it and three who can play the damn thing.” With Snodgrass you get someone who will help out and be one of teh eight when you need him; Payet was a viruoso pianist but didn’t want to play the same tune as the rest of the orchestra. Good signing for me. Honest player; Hull have a taught a few teams, including us, about team work this year.

  3. That will be David Sullivan and David Gold Badger. If those guys are dumb I wish I was born with some of it.

    • Couldn’t agree more John. Can’t understand the need to knock them. People have short memories but not me. Would they rather have the bad old days of The Bond Scheme, ‘Brown Out!’ or The Icelandic Biscuit Men? Gold and Sulivan are the best owners WHUFC have been lucky to have. Good luck to them.

  4. I see him as a very good bridge between now and 2 years time when hopefully Marcus Browne and Samuelsen will be up and running. Why spend megabucks on big-name, risky foreigners, when our young players are looking so good.

  5. A good squad acquisition ….think of him as a more reliable replacement for Gore rather than Payet

  6. So continuing the piano metaphor that’ll be ivory in ebony out, then (ahem).

    Snodgrass won’t pull up any trees, but he’ll want to play and improve the depth of the squad. He has, after all, “been involved in 50% of Hull’s goals this season” whatever that stat means.

    He is a very good crosser of the ball and there is the possibility of a decent partnership with Cresswell down the left wing.

    Not marquee, but decent enough. Some of the fans are still after what we can’t afford, or are swayed by foreign, “exotic” players – Zaza and Callieri’s time with us are salutary warnings.

  7. Same ol pony from badger about dumb & dumber.strange i thoughts maybe bilic might have wanted him not gold and sullivan.thanks for putting me straight cottonwool for brains

  8. So who was available to buy in this window that was an improvement on Snodgrass?

  9. Good – you can’t have too much quality!

    Now get on with the Hogan signing and stop farting about!

  10. another cheap shot at SuGo, sign players to add squad depth & that’s wrong, don’t sign players & they are being tight & lying about signing anybody.
    How many ‘top’ player’ are available in the January window? maybe badger could offer his knowledge & services to the board… remember the club have ambitions to become a ‘Top Club’ we are not there yet so in reality we can’t compete with these clubs on signings.

  11. Lol Dumb & Dummer,Chuckle Brothers,Porn Twins.Its all fair game for the almighty fans who said we didnt support the board or club if we called Allardyce Hippo Head.Priceless 😱😂
