Tonight’s guest post is once again from Kevin Mousley, thanks Kev.
I am not saying it is easy to wheel and deal in the fluid and
Byzantine world of Professional Football but West Ham enter the final
week of the transfer window in disarray.
Key weaknesses in the team at the front, middle and back haven’t been
addressed despite being obvious to even casual fans.
Dead wood hasn’t been moved on. Slaven Bilic may have a cunning plan
but his erratic selection and failure to put together an obvious first
team to limber up at least after the Lustians rubber, puzzled me,
after all Southampton managed it.
And now we have after half a dozen games an obvious lack of control
and despite the Asenal win, a fragile confidence.Carroll’s injury soap
opera continues.Early days but Lanzini looks a flashy light weight to
me; so that makes another one to add to Zarate. Sahko is embroiled
with the police, Sullivan has talked out the possibility of signing a
forward of proven PL goal getting ability.
And we are picking up a red card a game, almost, while last year’s
dependable -Kouyate aside- are having difficulty passing and trapping
These are the kind of ingredients you see in relegation candidates.
It is only three games and we have won one of them so perhaps we are
merely suffering the crises that most clubs do for a spell in any
given season. May be not. Injuries and bad days happen but it is the
series of poor decisions by manager and chairmen that worry me.
