Our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are as glum as you can get right now but The Daily Mail claiming they’re looking at Lamine Kone is threatening to cause a few smiles.
If it could have gone wrong this season it surely has with players unhappy and under-performing, the fans annoyed and the stadium looking like a real mistake at the moment.
That mixture has led to results being far from ideal with both defence and attacking drawing criticism.
Indeed, it now appears that Slaven Bilic has decided enough is enough at the back with him being linked with Sunderland’s Kone.
The Black Cats’ defender is a real rock when he wants to be and so the Hammers will be hoping that, should they sign him, he’ll only be too happy to put a shift in.
They certainly need players to do just that as, whilst they’re a little bit away from the relegation zone at the moment, they’re surely going to drop back down there if things aren’t sorted quickly.
Our landlord reckons it’s time, then, that Slaven Bilic really proves himself.
Thoughts on Kone, West Ham fans? Let us know below!
