Fyodor Smolov

Post by IronsForever » Thu Mar 29, 2018 12:16 am

West Ham United moved for Jordan Hugill instead of Fyodor Smolov.

Fedor Smolov of FC Krasnodar celebrates after scoring a goal during the Russian Premier League match between FC Krasnodar v FC Rostov at Kuban Stadium on September 18, 2016 in Krasnodar,...

West Ham's late transfer window move for Jordan Hugill raised a few eyebrows when they signed the Preston North End striker.

That move looks even stranger in the context that there was an international quality striker who 'wanted to sign for them'.

SkySports reported in January how Russia striker Fyodor Smolov was keen on a West Ham transfer as he considered a switch away from Krasnodar.

Smolov was claimed to be available for £15 million - but West Ham did not pull the trigger on a deal.

That looks like a potential mistake, and not only because cheaper option Hugill has failed to make an impact so far.

Russia's forward Fyodor Smolov eyes the ball during an international friendly football match between Russia and France at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on March 27, 2018.


Smolov scored for Russia last night against France, netting past Hugo Lloris.

It was the 28-year-old striker's 12th international goal, and he is likely to be their main dangerman at World Cup 2018.

For his club Smolov has been in fine form this season too, scoring 12 goals in 16 games, helping his side sit fourth in the Russian Premier League.

A goal against quality opposition like France demonstrated Smolov's quality, and West Ham should be regretting not deciding to pay that little bit extra to get him on board.

We did put a bid in, but we were £14 million short. We went back and offered him the loan of chalet in jaywick for a fortnight, free food vouchers at Aldi's and a 1980 ford orion with go faster stickers and furry dice.
The deal only fell through after the greedy ruskie wanted a Big Mac with large fries from macdonalds.
Some people eh.

It was. Wasn't his transfer fee used to pay off the VAT bill ?

You're right about the 3 involved mate. Storrie was almost as dodgy as Redknapp. Little wonder they were both involved when Portsmouth were spending millions they didn't have.

I wonder how much of the Scott Mean fee ended up in a brown envelope on it's way down to Sandbanks ?

An international striker with some pedigree we wouldn’t pay £14m for but we spunk £11m on a below average Championship striker and £75k a week on a 36 year old that was sacked for attacking a fan, regardless of what provocation he was under

Great business, as usual

Btw, all these loan to buys we insist on doing - apart from Lanzini, what was the last loan that we actually made permanent? The ratio of buys to returns must be very, very low

I think the club should start calling them loan to probably not buy. They should also wonder why all these players are available to loan in the first place

This is all down to the surprising policy of trying to get every signing on the cheap at a time of record profits.
It doesn't matter whether Smolov is better than Hugill, what matters is that the fee and wages involved are less.
This is where we are as a club, and this is why we are where we are.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.
