Being 37 Jussi was only ever going to be a stop gap. What was perhaps even more shocking was that we all felt that another of Sam’s ex-stalwarts would be making his way down Green St. in the shape of Paul Robinson; just about the only Blackburn Rovers player to emerge with any credit from their comical relegation had of course worked with Sam during his time at the Venky’s HQ and at the age of 32 could’ve become West Ham’s new no. 1 for many years to come; thus allowing the highly rated yet very raw Stephen Henderson the necessary time to develop.
Instead Sam put his faith in Jussi…and after Saturday’s gift to the men of Swansea that decision is now under scrutiny.
So after such a horrendous error is it time for Sam to give Henderson his chance ahead of schedule? Or does he alternatively now head into the market?

Though I don’t think any of us were that comfortable with the idea of Jussi replacing Greeny; he’s got the gloves now and I think he needs to be given the chance to earn his redemption. If Sam were to drop Jussi he may well be finished (no pun intended) at West Ham and with the purse strings as tight as they are; in my humble opinion a proven goal-getter has got to be the priority before Friday’s deadline and young Hendo simply isn’t ready to be thrust into first team action week in week out.
It was always a risky strategy to make a 37 year old our number 1, replacing the iconic and talismanic Robert Green; but Sam made his decision and now he has to stick with it.
