Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, we often think that West Ham United fans don’t know what they want. Yes, there is a certain style of football required at Upton Park, and certain sections of the fans seem to think that manager Sam Allardyce cannot deliver that.
As our landlord notes, the club are lucky to be back in the Premier League, and should actually give the manager and his players a chance.
Steeped in history, the club want more than the dog fight against relegation season after season and with Allardyce, they seem to be unsure if that can happen. Add to that the fact that fans were unhappy with the summer transfer activity and the injury list that has crept up.
They may have recorded a crucial win over struggling Fulham at the weekend but as one of our punters quips over his pint, just about anyone could have done that given the Cottagers’ current form.
What fans want going forward is a team that can grow, deliver exciting football and more than that, fight for those top half of the table spots.
To do that, some deadwood needs to be eradicated from the club, and with that in mind, we have come up with a list of five players who need to be sold in the winter.
Click on Upton Park to reveal the 5 players that West Ham United fans can’t wait to see the back of.
