Fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which ExWHUemployee discussed the club’s failure in signing a centre-forward in January.
In his post, the West Ham insider said he thinks it is ‘ridiculous’ that the Hammers did not manage to land a replacement for Sebastien Haller – who left to join Ajax in a deal worth £20.25 million towards the beginning of January – over the course of the winter transfer window.
He continued by suggesting he ‘would have expected at least someone on a loan’ as that would be a risk free move – the Irons could just send said player back at the end of the campaign if they did not meet expectations.
Finally, the insider stated what so many other fans are worried about – the club ‘are so light up top’. Indeed, following Haller’s sale, David Moyes only has the option of Michail Antonio as an out and out centre-forward in his first-team squad – with Antonio himself suffering injury problems ‘every few months’.
And, in reaction to his post on Twitter, fans of West Ham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many taking aim at GSB for their apparent lack of action in attempting to bring a new striker to the club in January.
Should West Ham have signed a striker?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to ExWHUemployee’s tweet?
“Completely pointless selling Haller if we weren’t going to get a replacement as he would’ve gone for more money in the summer plus leaves us with just one injury-prone striker – absolute joke and as usual zero ambition.”
“To be fair he’s a winger at best who’s done a fabulous job for us, with another winger who will be used up top. Sold a dream given a nightmare #GSBOUT”
“To not get King and let him go to a rival for 5m is unbelievable tbh. I must admit that I am now fully #GSBOUT”
“But we all knew this was coming”
“Same old West Ham… #GSBOUT”
“Shocking from the club. Infuriated”
