A number of West Ham fans have urged David Moyes to sign a striker following the Irons’ stalemate against Burnley on Sunday.
The east Londoners were held to a 0-0 draw when they faced off against the Clarets in an underwhelming clash at Turf Moor. West Ham’s lone striker Michail Antonio had just two shots the entire game, and neither of those were on target.
After starting the season off with four goals in the opening three league games, the 31-year-old’s clinical form has begun to tail off. The Jamaica international has now failed to score in his last seven Premier League games, and there is no natural centre-forward alternative to call upon.
In a post-match interview on Sunday, Moyes said: “We just didn’t quite have the quality in the final third when we needed it today. We got in enough times to do so, but we couldn’t make a goal from it.”
Fans urge Moyes to sign a striker
After West Ham shared the interview on the club’s official Twitter channel and website, a number of fans reacted by highlighting their frustrations at the lack of investment in forward players, not the first time the club’s GSB ownership has come under fire.
Here are some of the supporters’ responses to what Moyes had to say:
“Well sign a proper centre forward then Mr Moyes. Put Antonio on the wing.”
“Agreed, proper striker needed to help Antonio out”
“Maybe it’s that one single striker who actually isn’t a striker in the entire squad thing we warned you about at the beginning of the season. What other top six side is this unbalanced? Owners taking cheap shortcuts as always.”
“I hope he gave Antonio a good talking to!”
“Good that he knows what the problem is. Looking forward to fresh quality in Jan.”
“Lack of investment in key areas, simple. #Irons”
