Enough is enough, West Ham United boss David Moyes must drop awful summer signing before it’s too late.

The Hammers were incredibly shaky defensively against Leeds at Elland Road tonight.

Fortunately for us, our attacking players bailed us out after some schoolboy like errors at the back.

I have to say though, it’s time we seriously start talking about the shambolic form of Thilo Kehrer.

David Moyes brought the Germany international to the London Stadium for around £13 million in the summer transfer window, but it seems as though we’ve been completely had over, despite a promising start to his West Ham career.

The 26-year-old has been an accident waiting to happen in every single game over the past few months.

Enough really is enough now. Kehrer is costing us dearly on a regular basis, and Moyes needs to take him out of the side.

Quite what he was doing tonight inside the first 20 minutes of the game is anyone’s guess.

Kehrer was caught out in possession numerous times and his concentration levels were quite frankly appalling for a Premier League footballer.

The German’s passing was sloppy and he put Nayef Aguerd’s recovery pace to the test on a couple of occasions.

Kehrer looks a million miles off the pace in the Premier League, and his penchant for rash challenges really doesn’t help matters either.

The only thing I will say in his defence is that he has been shunted all along the back line by David Moyes, and hasn’t had the chance to build up any kind of consistency or rhythm in one particular position.

That being said, he clearly hasn’t done well enough to warrant a regular place in the West Ham starting XI.

David Moyes must drop awful summer signing Thilo Kehrer at the very least for our must-win Premier League games against Wolves and Everton.

Hopefully the Scot puts the German out of his misery, at least until he learns how to play in the Premier League.
