West Ham legend backs new signing to succeed

West Ham goalscoring legend  David Cross has asked Hammers fans to give Jordan Hugill a chance.

The former Hammer watched Hugill play for Preston North End a couple of times when he was a scout for Blackburn Rovers. Cross told Claret and Hugh this afternoon “He is a raw talent for sure, but he is hungry, brave and is a right handful! He won’t forget where he came from, remember both Ian Dowie and Ian Wright were late starters and this is his big chance in the Premier League”

“Although he won’t be a typical West Ham player and probably won’t score too many goals from 25 yards out, he should be a breath of fresh air, a real scrapper, he will knock the opposition centre-halves about and knock in some valuable scrappy goals in the six-yard box.”

” To be honest I see a lot of myself in him, I wasn’t a typical West Ham player either, let’s not batter the poor lad, we should give the lad a chance!”

  1. Well if he scores all 4 against Tottenham in a 4 0 win I won’t be complaining !!!

  2. Psyco is my perfect example of how an old fashioned CF can become a very decent footballer and goalscorer after a while at West Ham. I’m hoping to see Hugill giving a decent chance by the supporters like Psyco was.

  3. If he’s good enough for Psycho the season he’s good enough for me.

  4. Psyco , an absolute legend, tall and gangly, always a handful, and gave his all for the team ; if Jordan’s half as good, I won’t be complaining!! COYI
