Hopefully another Hugill and we won’t have to use him. At least we have cover!

The Hammers fans clearly aren’t happy with the signing of Carlos Sanchez, he is not of the same quality as their other signings but he could still be a good player for the London Stadium outfit this season. If this signing would have happened earlier on in the window, there wouldn’t have been this reaction. But, due to the amazing quality that has been brought in, the signing of Sanchez is a bit underwhelming for the fans but the club have set the bar so high this summer that any signing will be compared to the likes of Jack Wilshere, Felipe Anderson and Lucas Perez. He may not be a start name but he could be a good option for Manuel Pellegrini this season.
