ClaretandHugh follower Eug is a fearful man as we strategy the transfer window with a barren winter behind us, Right here he explains why:

By Eug

I’m extraordinarily fearful concerning the present state of affairs on the club.

When Moyes got here again to the club and acknowledged the best way ahead is to cease shopping for older gamers at vastly inflated costs which can be value subsequent to nothing a few years later and begin investing in younger up and coming gamers from all over the world. I used to be very excited

When he recognized the scouting division wanted a whole overhaul and launched Rob Newman as Head of Recruitment, I believed ultimately issues are going to alter for the higher and we are going to grow to be the up-and-coming workforce in Europe.

After we had been then being linked with younger gamers akin to, Nikola Milenkovic, Duje Celeta, Darwin Nunez, Adam Hlozek, Patrick Schick, Boubacar Kamara, Fabio  Carvalho, Luis Diaz and Keane Lewis-Potter issues seemed even higher.

Come January we’re sitting round 4th place within the Premier League and within the remaining knockout levels within the Europa League I although “that is it.”. We’re going to purchase a few the gamers listed above for the ultimate push into the Champions League and win the Europa League.

Then January comes and goes and. NOTHING! We purchase no-one.

Groups round us usher in gamers, notably Tottenham in Rodrigo Betencur & Dejan Kuluseski (end 4th in Premier League) and Liverpool signal one in all our supposed targets Luis Diaz (end 2nd in Premier League and Champions League finalists).

With accidents and exhaustion, we slide right down to seventh. Nonetheless not dangerous, nevertheless it was there for the taking.
In the future after the season ends and Aston Villa signal (On a FREE) one in all our prime younger targets from Marseille, Boubacar Kamara.

Then a few days later make one other signing Diego Carlos. Liverpool additionally in the future after the top of the season signal Fulham’s younger starlet Fabio Carvalho, once more linked as one in all our targets.


Then one other hotly linked goal Adam Hiozek is offered by Sparta Prague to Bayer Leverkusen. Sure our co-owner Danial Kretinsky can also be co-owner of Sparta Prague. This was purported to be an incredible benefit to West Ham to have the ability to purchase a few of their prime gamers.

So not one of the hotly tipped younger abilities have been signed by West Ham. Two have signed for rivals and one to a German aspect.

This together with one in all final season’s star participant Thomas Soucek apparently being  lower than comfortable about being performed out of place. From an attacking midfielder that was marauding ahead and scoring for enjoyable, this season is performed in a deeper position. Now we hear, there was a row with Moyes and we might let one in all our star gamers go.

Additionally leaving the club are the next, Mark Noble, Andrily Yarmolenko, Ryan Fredericks, Arthur Masuaku, Alex Kral, and Nikola Vlasic. Oh and one in all our prime backroom members Stuart Pearce has left.

It has gone from signing the highest younger abilities from all over the world to signing  no-one with everybody questioning simply what Rob Newman has been doing?

And similar to my desires, they fade and die.
