Robert Snodgrass has waved farewell to the Hammers fans sounding like a man who will not be back at the end of his year’s loan.
The Scot moved to Aston Villa today where he will be reunited with his former Hull City boss Steve Bruce after failing to make any sort of impact at the Hammers.
But he is clearly holding no grudges as he moves off to the midlands and life in the Championship.
Snodgrass – an infrequent visitor to Twitter – appeared to say goodbye to the supporters and the players after his ill-fated spell at the club.
He said: “All the best to @WestHamUtd for the season ahead. Terrific set of fans and great bunch of lads.”
It’s a shame he couldn’t take his Hull form to us.
He isn’t a bad player. Just didn’t fit in at our club.
He will light up the championship. Good luck to him.
Ditto ?👏 shame it didn’t work out , I thought he was a good buy ? Well it is now 😁
I thought he was a good buy too. Dunno why he struggled. My theory is the change in transfer policy. They said at some point that’s it no more unproven players. Now we go for older players with PL experience. Seemed a good idea, but you have to think about where they are going to fit in. Pretty obvious I guess but is that being done? Also, you won’t get much resale value from older players. Change back again? Then you take another type of risk! Glad it’s not my job…
I always had my doubts and saw him as a panic buy though his departure has left us very light on attacking midfielders with the other recent departures in that area….
