It is safe to say that our resident Hammers fans in the Transfer Tavern needed many drinks to survive the rollercoaster that was the January transfer window.
In a pretty mundane transfer window, all the noise appeared to come from East London during a window that was dominated by the Hammers losing last season’s star man, Dimitri Payet.
Although Slavan Bilic moved quickly to replace the Frenchman with former Hull man, Robert Snodgrass, there is still some ill feeling towards Payet here in the Transfer Tavern with many of our punters going as far to have stuck his picture on the Tavern’s dart board.
The Hammers were long time linked with new Aston Villa man, Scott Hogan in this window but Bilic pulled the plug on the move, citing that he had too many attacking options.
This statement has lead our landlord to ask whether West Ham should have shipped more attacking players in order to make room for Hogan, begging the question – is quality better than quality?
Obviously with Hogan never playing in the Premier League, £15 million for his services would have been a risk but goalscorers are hard to come by – though Andy Carroll’s recent form may have made Bilic’s mind up.
Should West Ham let players leave in order to accommodate Hogan? Our landlord believes so – here are TWO players he feels should have left the London Stadium in order to raise funds for the Hammers……Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
