Just our luck. Freak injury in his first training session. Out for the season! :angryred:
FFS now some historical pro Nazi tweets have emerged on social media, with pictures of him having a Swastika tattooed on his back also being leaked.

Only at West Ham!!

Quality signing. Really looking forward to seeing him play for us :hamm:
Can’t see it myself. Goes missing too often in the big games.

Whilst he’s pulling on the shirt though & putting a shift in, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. 👍

That was when he was a youth with Diop.

Brereton Diaz is not good to play premier league football never mind for a team 4th in the table.

There is a lot of quality outside the Premier League. Look at the CB at Brighton. 20 Mill from Bristol City. (Webster) Totally unproven at top level.

They've been married for 4 years apparently, and have 2 and 1/2 kids together.

Are we in for Lingard now, though? Paper talk linking us aside, have we actually made a bid, or has a formal bid been reported (in the way Newcastle's was)?

Bit of devil's advocate in that, I know, as I'm sure we would have interest in Lingard after last season regardless.
So you don't think we are interested then?

Based on this video alone, Brereton looks like a Moyes forward, to me.

Quick, strong, and knows where the goal is.

I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at signing him, in fact I'm warming to the idea.

I'm not a mod but can posters stop posting misleading b*llocks.

Thinks like injured in training and out for the season?

Who? Is this real? No idea!

Hijacked by Levy? As above (although I presume the laughing face at least gives some sort of clue.)

More clarity required please.

In your opinion. (Based upon absolutely nothing I might add)

You probably turned your nose up at Bowen, Antonio, Cresswell, Benrahma et al as well.

It’s pretty disgusting that we entered this window with three of our four first choice defenders injured - two of which we need to replace sooner rather than later anyway - and only one striker on the whole squad and we’re still yet to make a signing for 20th January.

It’s poor from the recruitment team, targets should already have been identified. And back ups and back ups to the back ups.

Youtube for you, he's not quick or stong and he lives offside. Where the 'can play on the wing' came from I'll never know. He stands on the wing when Rovers are out of posession because he's so horrendously bad at winning his battles against centre backs.

What does Brereton have that makes anybody think he's an exception to the likes of Mitrovic, Pukki, Toney, Maupay, Armstrong (who I actually thought would make the step up) + all the other championsip strikers who have failed to make the step up

Are you disgusted that we won 3 out of the 4 games since the window opened (two of them without conceding)?

Based upon living 15 minutes from Ewood park and seeing him play regulary so no you may not add.

It became disgraceful when Moyes said after the Leeds game that Antonio was knackered and ineffective. Our only CF.
Moyes has form for this now.

I get the impression he's on the fence with this one.
