  1. Loan him out and spend some of the dosh put by on gylfi ffs there’s enough there 😉 gazump the poorer dustbin lids and make a real statement 💰💰💰 next year we won’t have to pay a penny out , we will be a settled side challenging with the so called big boys ? Then I woke up 😂😂

  2. To be fair Snoddy you’ve been a bit average. But the pressure’s off now ’cause the bosses bought well it seems and the kids are looking pretty good too. So relax, not too much mind, I mean train hard but remember to enjoy yourself. A flick, trick, the odd goal and suddenly you’re feeling like a world beater again.
    And I can say this cause I’m a fully qualified armchair fan 🙂
    You’ll also be worth more if you’re showing half decent 😉

  3. Deserves a better chance.hopefully he’s now got it.Good Luck Snoddy

  4. He needs to prove his quality, he looked good at Hull but hasn’t showed that yet with us, if he stays hopefully he will find his best form.

  5. Oh well it was almost a perfect window. We thought we bought a right winger, ended up getting a right old whinger.

  6. I guess the problem is no team will be prepared to pay any where near the 10 mil paid for him so for the time being we are stuck with him…

  7. Snodgrass wouldn’t even make the bench this season……..sell him to a Championship club.

  8. He certainly needs to improve , of that there is no question . Maybe he will with the new players to play alongside . Influence and example can go a long way to improving a player or said player rediscovering himself . So here’s wishing him good luck both for himself and West Ham .

  9. Villa could afford his salary. Some premier are keen too just have to take a hit in transfer fee. But some Championship clubs Villa Boro Leeds Wednesday Wolves etc can afford it. Pay part wages on loan if need be like others said. And keep Feghouli better back up and makes £40k but £65k with 4.5m euro bonus over 3 years. So £4.5 for him at Galatasaray seems cheap considering his record.
    Like to bring in Ryad great #10 very creative and RW and RM and CF and CM in that order at £14m not bad with 30 assists and 22 goals in 120 apps in #10 RW 12 and 18 I think in 80. 11 goals last season for Montpellier.
