I can't help but think that as businessmen, they've had some limited success in buying (or acquiring) prospects, Lanzini, Kouyate, Antonio, Cresswell, Adrian who all featured in a West Ham team that thrived 2 season's ago. To that end, the buying of Obiang, Fernandez, Masuaku, and now Quina, Habsawhatever etc. they're trying to repeat the process. We can all see that these prospects, both old and new, must be complimented by some big name signings to form a squad that can challenge in this league.Gonzo wrote:I'm still slightly deluded and think something might happen because my pea sized brain can't fathom that successful businessmen could be this incompetent
I saw Chicharito, Arnie, Zabaleta and Hart as a step in the right direction, but after the first three games they are gambling massively that the squad is complete. We now have until the silly window in Jan to save ourselves from relegation and on the face of it, we have the players to do so. But this is West Ham and what our owners have left themselves wholly unprepared for, is the next rash of injuries in a squad that is not that deep in quality. If they win this gamble, they've done it while making money hand over fist. But we all only care about the other side of this wager and while it's not our money, it is our passion they are fucking with.
