First Team Squad
Training with West Ham
Hopefully they saved those hilarious £5 notes that they mocked up with him on as well.All those:
"He's past it."
"Didn't want him anyway."
"Only joined you for the money."
"Not good enough for us anymore now."
Type comments from Hammers fan when he signed for us are going to go awkwardly back in the box.
It still can be a decent move for them, given that it's basically minimal risk. That's as long as they've got enough space in the squad and they're not having to leave out someone more likely to play.Seeing West Ham twitter slowly convince themselves this will be a good signing is very very funny to watch after the last year.
Yeah, just funny based on all the shit they gave us and him last year.It still can be a decent move for them, given that it's basically minimal risk. That's as long as they've got enough space in the squad and they're not having to leave out someone more likely to play.
Hell, I'd be fine having Lingard back here as the 25th man in our squad (ahead of whichever of Biancone/Toffolo/Konate/a 4th keeper gets the nod). But probably wouldn't drop any of the other 24 players.
With his achilles injury I just can’t see him ever being fit enough to play a part. Maybe he’ll just be used in cup games and won’t need to be in the 25. Do they have a 25 for the conference league or can they play anyone like in the domestic cups?I actually quite like Lingard and wish him well, but I'd be amazed if he can force his way into that West Ham team. I think he's the sort of player that needs to be at the peak at fitness to be effective and he's barely played for 2 seasons, keeps getting niggling injuries and he's now in his 30s. Then again sometimes a club just suits a player and he ripped it up at West Ham last time he was there (albeit 2 years ago in empty stadiums).
