Movie star and celebrity West Ham fan Nick Frost has hit out at his beloved club over a lack of transfers in the January window as deadline day looms large.
Frost, a massive West Ham fan, is perhaps best known for his roles in the brilliant Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz films.
And like many of his fellow West Ham supporters, Frost is feeling seriously frustrated by the lack of transfer activity in the January window with so much to play for in the second half of the season.
West Ham are in a real battle for the top six, are in the last 16 of the Europa League and should – famous last words – make it through to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
For many West Ham fans the last week of the transfer window feels like groundhog day.
After landing some big signings on the last deadline day under David Moyes – including Nikola Vlasic and Alex Kral in the summer window – there is still hope the Hammers will get the signings the manager wants and needs.
Although insiders Claret and Hugh – who have direct links to the Hammers hierarchy – claimed yesterday the prospects of making signings are dwindling with tomorrow marking five days until the window closes.
Many supporters are hugely frustrated plans were not in place to get deals done early on in January, though. Especially as defeats to Leeds and Man United felt avoidable had West Ham revitalised with some new additions in key areas.
Expectations were raised following the arrival of Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky in November and the appointment of former Man City transfer guru Rob Newman as West Ham’s head of recruitment.

But – as yet – it seems to have made little difference with Moyes still unable to sign a much-needed striker despite admitting he has been trying for two years.
Frost spoke for many a frustrated West Ham fan when he took to Twitter to bemoan the lack of transfer preparedness and ambition from his beloved Hammers.
“What’s happening at WHU??” Frost said on Twitter.
“Don’t we want to consolidate our league place and kick on?
“Why weren’t there loads of potential options of signings identified and ready to go? Why?
“It’s happening… again.”
