Don't you find that comforting is a strange kind of way? It's the West Ham way.
A broke football club who spent £15 million on an injured player, who are linked with every striker in the civilised world but resign a player that they let go three months previous, the day after the transfer window closes. It's comedy gold and that's before we take over the Olympic Stadium.
I know what you mean. Not sure I find it that comforting though!
I did think, up until about a month ago, that with the appointment of Sam we'd put that sort of stuff behind us, and had become a much more professional outfit
The last month has been a farce really, and I do worry it will undermine a lot of the good work that has got us where we are.
A month ago I was expecting us to push on and improve from last season. I can't say I still feel that way
Which is a shame, as it was looking so good. Finally nailed down a decent LB, sorted our main striker, added a quality wide player to give us 4 excellent options to choose 2 from, Morrison showing signs he could give us another CM option.....
But then it sort of petered out. If we get Carlton back, and Vaz Te back in the fold, it might not be such a disaster I guess
I mean, if we'd decided a month ago that we were happy with Carroll and Carlton as our "big man" options, I'd have felt it was a decent enough window, as the end result would be a slight improvement. But despite the end result being no different, the way we have acted in the last month has made it feel like quite a disappointing window
