Summer of discontent on cards for Iron

Adrian has hinted that he is set for a summer of discontent given his second relegation to No 2 keeper in successive seasons.

And it is very worrying that with so much change needed to the squad, the club appears to be confronting a goalkeeping ‘crisis’ as we turn into summer.

The Spanish stopper has regularly been a marginalised figure over recent month with Joe Hart preferred in the most part by manager David Moyes.

Now – for the first time – Adrian has opened up about his frustration declaring: “This season for me has been a bit disappointing and frustrating at times, but I have one more year on my contract and we will see more when the season has finished.”

Whilst the keeper has never been a moaner there is a sting in the tail of that statement as he is supposedly heading into new contract talks with the club.

But clearly it seems that – as he prepares to pull on the gloves again for the match against Manchester City on Sunday – there is some very hard talking to be done if he is to remain at the club.

  1. Shame because he ‘Gets’ us.

    • Absolutely Jimbo. I don’t know who had the bright idea to bring in Hart at 100,00 plus a year.I am sure someone will put me right again.

  2. Adrian is more West Ham than Joe Hart, and to my warped mind, an equally talented GK.
    Moyes has treated him with the utmost of disrespect; he and Nathan Trott should be our no.1 and 3 GK’s respectively-bya ll means find a quality GK to be Adrian’s back-up.
    Why do we treat some of our best talent so poorly??
    Over the past few seasons we lost Sakho, Valencia, and Alex Song- all quality players.
    I doubt whether BFS, Slaven Bilic, and especially David Moyes are good at man-management.
    Moyes has also given little regard to Chicharito, who will also probably be leaving our club, at a time when good strikers are so hard to find. Every time Chicharito played up front with Arnautovic with Lanzini behind them, we looked very dangerous.
    Chuck out Moyes- our club deserves better; Terry Westley would be a much better choice, if for only one reason- he accepts and knows about the West Ham Way-if you doubt, take a look at the way our U-23’s played this season!!
