Jordan Hugilll signs for West Ham Unites on Transfer deadline line day.

Even before the January transfer window closed West Ham United had confirmed that there would be no new additions to an already threadbare squad with the exception of the Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill , who was an ideal West Ham signing because he was cheap and Hammers manager David Moyes still had a lot of sway at the club where he began his managerial career and was able to dig up enough dirt in order to get the ‘deal’ over the line.

Essentially Hugill is an Andy Carroll clone who is not as talented but is much much fitter, he will offer the plan B option that Moyes has been lusting after and may well prove to be a solid signing, but West Ham fans will have been quick to do the maths and have seen that Ayew and Sakho have yielded around £22 – 28 Million in revenue as opposed to the £9 Million in expenditure for Hugill and possibly £2 Million in agents fees and add ons for the Jaoa Mario transfer on loan from Inter. Social media was in anger on deadline day, I’m not the only one who thinks this but we need to get these clowns out of our club. At the end of the day they sold us down the river 18 months ago and its been lie after lie, change needs to happen.

There seems that there should have been at least an £11 Million war chest available for some late transfer activity given the recent out goings from the club however the closed sign has been put up at the London Stadium already meaning the publicly declared ‘funds available’ to David Moyes will not be utilised.

Since this year’s ruling that clubs are no longer allowed to borrow money from off shore ‘loan facilitators’ against their prospective commercial activities West Ham United have been on the back foot financially.

Maybe now is the time for West Ham United’s owners to break the cast and say it how it really is to the legion of fans who will always support West Ham United come hell or high water, why not say “actually we are broke, we cannot borrow money as easily as we used to in the past and due to the high wages we have paid in order to try to compete with the other teams scrapping to stay in the Premier League we don’t have a pot to piss in!

We the fans would be far more forgiving if they felt they were being fed the truth instead of a whole load of smoke and mirrors.

Get these clowns out.
