At Least we didn't buy another Benni McCarthy!

It's been a complete non-event of a transfer window as West Ham failed to bring in a single new face to shore up their challenge for a top four finish and Europa League campaign.

But it could be worse - in what is always a limited market of left overs and strays, January deals have a habit of backfiring as the desperate and the bewildered part with their cash in the hope of changing their flagging fortunes.

Consider the tragic tale of Benni McCarthy who arrived at West Ham United on transfer deadline day in  2010. The following week he  was injured in his debut for West Ham in a 2–1 defeat to Burnley and was out for two crucial months. 

Things went further downhill from there until he left the club in acrimonious circumstances in  February 2011, having played just 326 minutes of football without a single goal for the club. 

Sometimes you are better to walk away empty handed if all that is on offer is damaged goods. While fans may be frustrated just now, it could be worse!




  1. It will be fucking worse if results go downhill

  2. And when Dec and Bowen leave in the summer due to lack of ambition
    Great work by the new recruitment team

  3. Hugely disappointing failure to bring in any players, given the clear and obvious need to cover key areas....


  4. I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
