Stkriker’s birthday reminds us of Pelle’s awful reign

Albian Ajeti has already become one of those “whatever happened to?” West Ham players!

So it’s a tad embarrassing to see the Switzerland striker – signed for £8 million by Manuel Pellegrini – being wished a happy Birthday” by the club on Twitter yesterday at perhaps the worst year of his career.

He’s hardly likely to have enjoyed a situation where nether of two bosses have given him a real chance to show what he’s about.

And it’s also hardly surprising that the keyboard warriors were immediately out in force  with such comments such as “thanks for ruining my career.”

dMoyes can hardly be blamed for the player’s problems  and it’s sad that Ajetic’s brthday serves only to remind us all of the  long list of less than average and regularly injured players signed by the Chilean.

With such as  Roberto, Ajeti, Sanchez, Yarmolenko, Balbuena, Cardoso and Wilshere brought in, our current problems are sadly all too easy to understand.

  1. Stop blaming Pellegrini. Did you not see Carragher’s analysis on Sky? Of course you did, hence the need to try and spin the argument. I think most supporters would take Pellegrini back in a heartbeat and would have never let him go if we knew Moyes was the alternative.

    • No 1/ No I didn’t I was busy on the site
      No 2/ Your use of the word think and most are based on what exactly?
      No 3/ Didn’t realise there was an argument to spin -merely a point of view?
      No 4/ I won’t do you the discourtesy of bothering with what u have to say any further

    • Never in a million years would I take Pellegrini back!! Was never the right fit in the first place! One of Sullivan’s ‘try to appease the unrest at the club ‘ but found him out to be useless? unless Pellegrini had a big bag of dosh to spend , And he was never gonna get that ? West Ham are not that kinda club more frugal IMHO, so Moyes fits the bill for the board on that alone ? We are not what some people tending to look through rose tinted glasses think as one of the big players in the premiership? We are a working class backed club that every now and then give the big boys a good game and sometimes give them a fright, and we have always been like that in my life time and as far as I can remember and always will be ? That’s the West Ham way in a nutshell, you never know what team turned up till they turned up and gave it go ( or not) As in lots of cases! It is the same today only in a bigger fish bowl

  2. Ajeti looked decent to be fair statistically, he wasn’t first choice as we know, that was Gomez, imho he hasn’t been given any kind of crack of the whip by MP or DM, might prove to be a great player in time and he is only 23 he has come through a much tougher upbringing than what is happening at the minute so willing to give him time to find a way forward before consigning him to the scrap heap.

  3. You say “He’s hardly likely to have enjoyed a situation where nether of two bosses have given him a real chance to show what he’s about.”

    and then further down, add “dMoyes can hardly be blamed for the player’s problems and it’s sad that Ajetic’s brthday serves only to remind us all of the long list of less than average and regularly injured players signed by the Chilean.”

    So Moyes takes no blame at all for not giving him “a real chance to show what he’s about”?

    Your words

    Cue to the insulting response, if this even makes it through approval. Which I doubt.

    • Of course it makes it through although I suppose your doubts are based on your own insults. Pellegrini takes the lion’s share of the blame for signing him just as Moyes did Hugill. I don’t see the words “Moyes takes no blame at all” anyway- just “hardly can be blamed” but he will have seen enough on training ground to make a judgement. Don’t worry about continuing your insults. Over my head mate after all these years.

  4. Balbuena might not have been to his best lately- but have sure been good value for money spent and is at least good enough as third choice CB If you see how he can play.
    Telling Cardoso is a bad buy, that is certainly a bit over the top and far to early. Don’t you think?

  5. In other news Jonathan Calleri scored a hat-trick in the Europa League tonight so who knows what is possible for this guy

  6. Finn – what utter tosh. People like you who just make stuff up to try and prove a point should not be allowed anywhere near adult forums which are for sensible debate and comment not hysterical nonsense. Forget Moyes. But MP for me is one of the most disappointing appointments in our history. Moyes is pretty much doing what I expected. These are mutually exclusive issues. And NO I would not have kept MP at any cost. Would I have preferred the next Guardiola? Yes but for now moyes it is. Would I like to be a spuds fan right now? Not at all just because you get Mourinho doesnt mean you get better football or results.
