Snoddy signs

Good news that Robert Snodgrass has signed for £10.2 milllion. What's encouraging is that this window West Ham have signed two players who are proven performers in the Premiership. Snodgrass has already scored nine goals for Hull this season (two are penalties) and Jose Fonte has been up through the leagues with Southampton as well as picking up a Euro 2016 winners' medal. Bilic himself has said that players from other leagues often need a season to adapt, so it's still a mystery why we signed so many players in the summer who hadn't done it in the Premier League before. Now at least it seems that some lessons have been learned. And if WHU can get close to £30 million for Payet the club will make a healthy profit over the transfer window.

I am pleased with both signings, although I hope Slav has done his home work on Hogan if they sign him, £15M is a lot of money by our standards and the EPL is a massive step up. anyway Payet's gone and life goes on!

Yes Rob, it's a big step, even Carlton Cole scored lots in the Championship! Brentford fans rate Hogan so just hope he's a Charlie Austin type who will score at any level.
