Winter window a master class …in chaos

      Winter window a master class …in chaos
West Ham‘s January transfer window was a masterclass in…something. But let’s call it chaos for now.

Letting go of both Benrahma and Fornals while the team was humming? Let’s just say the logic escapes me, like smoke through a faulty chimney writes Michael Talbot.

Winter window a master class …in chaos

Moyes tries to be the good guy, admitting they wanted out. But come on, gaffer!  I am sure there was a way to have kept them happy. Or was it Steidten, the transfer whisperer, pulling the strings with some grand vision we mere mortals can’t grasp?

Here’s the thing: fans aren’t buying it. We see an attacking void wider than the Thames at sunrise, and a team performance flatter than yesterday’s pancake. Blaming the players for wanting a new challenge? Easy scapegoating.

Is this some 4D chess Steidten’s playing? Are there secret transfer targets so mind-blowing they make Messi look like a Sunday league player? Maybe. But until then, all I see are missed opportunities and a squad looking thinner than a Kalvin Phillips haircut.

Summer can’t come soon enough. But let’s be honest, the pressure’s on. If those transfer windows don’t deliver like Santa on Christmas Eve, the blame game won’t be a polite tea party. It’ll be a full-blown food fight, and the fans won’t be throwing marshmallows.

So, Moyes, Steidten, Sullivan – whoever’s calling the shots, get it right. Show us a plan, some ambition, and signings that make us forget this January nightmare ever happened. Otherwise, the pitchforks will look even more inviting than they are right now.
