Trevor Sinclair slams West Ham owners over transfers and tells them to watch video evidence for proof they’ve made a big mistake.
Deadline day came and went with no new arrivals at West Ham during the January window.
And it is fair to say a large section of the fanbase were extremely unhappy.
Supporters felt it showed a lack of ambition particularly given the clear holes in West Ham’s squad and how much there is to play for in the second half of the campaign.
Influential fan group Hammers United also released a lengthy statement saying the lack of ambition to pay the money it takes to get the players David Moyes wanted would see the likes of Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen leave West Ham.
Moyes insisted he could not get deals done for players he felt would improve on what he already had.
West Ham then turned in one of their worst performances for years as they came within 90 seconds of the biggest FA Cup shock of all time against Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday.
The Hammers were woeful and many squad players effectively signed their goodbye cards with their displays.
Hammers legend Trevor Sinclair was watching the game and was thinking along the same lines as many fans.
Trevor Sinclair slams West Ham owners over transfers and tells them to watch video evidence
Sinclair slammed West Ham’s owners over the lack of transfers and told them to watch the video evidence if proof was needed that the club should have made signings last month.
“If the board needed reminding how our squad depth isn’t good enough then they can re-watch the first 45 minutes against Kidderminster,” Sinclair said on Twitter.
Moyes has come out in defence of West Ham’s owners following criticism of the club’s inability to make signings (West Ham United YouTube).
The Scot cited the fact West Ham had made several club record bids.
But that is an irrelevance. West Ham’s record outlay is £45m – which doesn’t get you much in modern football.
If you want top players and to be truly ambitious you have to pay top money. It is as simple as that.
And if Moyes could not find players to improve on some of those wearing the West Ham shirt at Kidderminster then that is serious cause for concern.
