The disastrous story goes on for Irons loanee

Felipe Anderson spent another miserable 90 minutes on the bench as his loan club Porto were beaten 0-2 by Chelsea in last night’s Champions League match.

The Hammers loanee – having been named among the subs – hoped he may have had a chance of some action but once again he was forced to sit it out as his value drops and drops.

Agents are currently involved in attempting to find a club for a player who, in what is going to be the flattest summer market is carrying little value following a €35 million transfer, and both Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been mentioned as possible future areas for him

It is  one of the most disastrous signings of years and years for West Ham who were pushed hard by former manager Manuel Pellegrini to make the Brazilian a marquee signing.

  1. I’d be pretty sure that he could come back to us and contribute to our squad and team in a positive way. Find out what the ‘problem’ is and get the guy sorted. Find out where and how he would like to play and see what we can do. Otherwise just write the man off. Not a pleasant outcome for anyone, least of all Felipe. He might be a Ravel or he might be a Tomas.

  2. I agree with the above comment and I also think coming back to a squad with the positive mentality and togetherness that our team currently has, could go a long way in helping him find is 19/20 form again. At his best, he was justifying the 35/40 million pounds we paid for him. I hope it works out for the best.
