It is the West Ham way, don't you know ? ;)

We are 90% certain will get Haller so we will have Haller as 1st Choice, Chico 2nd, Silva 3rd and Hugill 4th which I hope Hugill will go and West Ham looking into former Chelsea loanee, Hugiann bloke for a season loan with option to buy.
I am probably the only one but I dont really want Higuain. never thought he was suited to the PL game. Would rather have a younger striker than that.
Totally agreed, anyway, he will not come to West Ham as another Italian club want to get him permanently.

I dont think Italian Strikers do very well in England as a rule. I dont think they like the culture here.

There are more Zaza, Gabbiadini, Borini, Higuains than there are di Canio and Ballotellis. Maybe they need to be nutters to play here.

Granted there have been some turkeys. But the likes of Vialli & Zola were absolute stars here, and players like Graziano Pelle who had a decent goals to game ratio at a below average Southampton and Fabrizio Ravanelli who averaged a goal every other game in a relegated and very poor Middlesbrough side were none too shabby.

Pelle is an interesting one, I always rated him but the Saints fans seemed frustrated with him. The others were from an age when they were churning out a lot of good players. Not sure what has happened in Italy recently.

If push cam to shove would you consider re-signing AC as a back up striker on a pay as you play basis?
