Guillermo Franco

Corrientes (Argentina)
Squad Number: 10
Position: Striker
Born: 3rd Nov 1976 (Corrientes (Argentina))
Signed: 17th Sep 2009 (£0)
Contract: 1 year
Previous Club: Villarreal

KUMB Awards: Best Signing (runner up) 2009/10; Most Missed (third place) 2010/11.

Having been made available by his former club Villarreal the Mexican international joined the Hammers two weeks after close of the 2009 summer transfer window on a free transfer.

The Argentinian-born Franco spent the majority of his career in Mexico before moving to Spain in 2006. Having scored just 14 times in 81 league appearances his goalscoring record was less than memorable although his experience will no doubt be valuable to a young Irons team.

Manchester City

1-1: Sunday, 9th May

(Replaced Cole, 64 mins) Got into good positions but his finishing lacked conviction.

Fulham

2-3: Monday, 3rd May

(Replaced Ilan, 61 mins) Good finish for the second, if not much else.

Wigan Athletic

3-2: Saturday, 24th April

(Replaced Ilan, 71 mins) Here's something you probably won't see mentioned anywhere else. Whilst everyone is (rightly) raving about Parker's finish, Franco's headed pass into the Scotty's path was nothing short of sublime. Gets a bonus mark for that alone.

Liverpool

0-3: Monday, 19th April

(Replaced Stanislas, 45 minutes) Comments to follow.

Sunderland

1-0: Saturday, 10th April

(Replaced Stanislas, 74 mins) Scored what will be a close call for Goal of the Season when latching onto a fine delivery from Faubert with a diving header. Pushing his claims for a starting berth.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

1-3: Tuesday, 23rd March

(Replaced McCarthy, 75 mins) At last: guile, desire and application. A sublimely taken goal and one of the only players prepared to put his boot through the big round white thing (no, not Frank Lampard).

Wolverhampton Wanderers

1-3: Tuesday, 23rd March

(Replaced McCarthy, 75 mins) Hallelujah - someone who had a decent game. Found row Z on a couple of occasions before finally hitting the target in the third minute of injury time.

Arsenal

0-2: Saturday, 20th March

Bolton Wanderers

1-2: Saturday, 6th March

A few decent touches first half but disappeared in the second.

Manchester United

0-3: Tuesday, 23rd February

Awful game. Never at the races.

Hull City

3-0: Sunday, 21st February

Controlled the ball well and brought others into the game. Unsurprisingly, he faded a bit in the second half after his month or two on the injury list but it was good to see him back and, in amongst all the new arrivals up front, he laid down a marker to suggest that he won’t be ousted easily.

Hull City

3-0: Sunday, 21st February

First game back, gave the Hull defence some problems with his touches - especially Paul McShane who was consistantly committed by the Mexican.

Chelsea

1-1: Sunday, 20th December

Won a lot up front, made a real nuisance of himself and got through a hell of a lot of hard work.

Bolton

Birmingham City

Manchester United

0-4: Saturday, 5th December

Some nice control but faded from view as the game went on.

Burnley

5-3: Saturday, 28th November

Good game. Some of his chest control was superb. Looked good in the air and held the ball up well.

Hull City

3-3: Saturday, 21st November

Everton

1-2: Sunday, 8th November

Aston Villa

2-1: Wednesday, 4th November

Battled gamely on despite rarely causing much in the way of threat.

Sunderland

2-2: Saturday, 31st October

Took the goal well and was unlucky not to add a second. Tired a bit too quickly though.

Arsenal

2-2: Sunday, 25th October

A few good touches – won the ball in the air a few times and there was some decent link play early on with Cole. However, the longer the game went on the less noticeable he became.

Stoke City

1-2: Saturday, 17th October
