Well who would have thought it - Jonathan Calleri arrived at West Ham last year hailed as the next Carlos Tevez. Just like Tevez he endured a difficult start adjusting to the Premiership, but unlike the Apache his luck did not improve and he became a forlorn looking figure before exiting for Las Palmas last month. In total he managed just one goal in 18 games for West Ham and amassed a series of terrible howlers, including a highly amusing attempted rabona shot against Stoke City in April when a tap in would have sufficed!
It will therefore come as a bit of a shock to Hammers fans that he scored not once, but twice for Las Palmas in his debut last night! Add this to the fact that the goalless Simone Zaza notched 6 in 18 appearances for Valencia after his West Ham nightmare ended midway through last season, you'd have to wonder whether our attacking coaching set up is getting the best out of these players?
One solution would have been to bring back Teddy Sheringham but he has recently moved to the Indian Super League as manager of Atletico de Kolkata. As we seek a big name striker to address our lack of attacking firepower, maybe we also need to ask some questions about our support network for these players?
BTW if you want to take a look at Calleri's rabona howler check out this:
Billic tatics are very naive we don't create chances in the box need new thinking or get a new manager end offReplyDelete
Billic not premiership standard player choice is terrible tactics poor plays players out of position wanted to sell Obiang and antonio a few months back overall he's appallingReplyDelete
100 per cent agreeDelete
Nice man heart with west ham but worst manager we've hadReplyDelete
Worst manager we've ever had?! Where have you lot been? He only secured our best ever points tally in the Prem, youre saying he is worse than Avram? You clowns.. Calleri scored 2, wow,against who?? Some team who plays 3rd tier football, I think that's a pretty poor return tbh.ReplyDelete
You need to get with it, intact last season was a struggle, but none of signing worked out (except Fernandes and masuaku) you can't only point the blame at Slav. I wonder how much he actually wanted them in the first place.
If we want to stay poor as we are fine if we want to improve and compete top 8 be practical and face the facts that's lifeDelete
Are you lot nuts. Bilic worse than Grant and Roder. He made mistakes but are you really saying he's worse.ReplyDelete
Grant and rhoder were worse billic last season was not far behind we've got to start holding onto the ball and inject some pace give youth a chance if good enough and stop making stupid subs and play players in there natural positionsDelete
Getting back to the serious point of the coaching set up, there is clearly a problem there. Julian Dicks, good defender (when on the pitch) was helping with attack Why? And what do the rest do? I think where Slavan is naive is trusting the bacj room staff who cannot deliver what he requires. Maybe we will start seeing a change when he sees Lewin keeping players fit. COYIReplyDelete
Clearly a big promblem we had the same thing happening with payet the truth is he become aware tactics were wrong which caused unrest and finally led him to leaveDelete
Too true. Payet knew we were going nowhereDelete
A nil nil draw in austria tonight a big big promblem scoring goals has got to be systems billic is playingReplyDelete
Clearly billic is not premiership standardDelete
Billic states we are not scoring enough in training does he not think it's not down to him to put it right then history repeating itself from last year it's just not good enough w ham ticket holderReplyDelete
