Where would Snodgrass fit into West Ham's side?

West Ham have had a £10 million bid for Robert Snodgrass accepted by Hull City and you have to feel he'd choose the Hammers and higher wages over Burnley. Always liked Snodgrass as a player — he came up the hard way via Livingston, Leeds and Norwich. The Glaswegian plays with hunger, has a great shot and can score free kicks. The only fitness reservation is the dislocated knee that kept him out for a season at Hull. 

Though if he's mainly a right winger you wonder where he'd fit in as we're just starting to see the best of Feghouli and Antonio prefers the right flank too. Presumably Snodgrass's arrival would mean the departure of Gokhan Tore as we're now overloaded with wide players. The Scottish international can also play up front and might revel in a more central Payet-esque role. 


He'd certainly be a good player to bring off the bench and a record of 78 goals in 371 matches is impressive. As is his giant beard. Since the departure of Tomkins, the Hammers, bar Ginge and Big Andy, have been a little lacking in the facial hair department. In fact Ginge, Andy Carroll and Snodgrass could form a very impressive prog rock band…

Snodgrass is a grafter who takes a good free kick, and can make a great cross, always tries 100%, I think he would be a great addition, which probably all means he'll go to Burnley!COYI

And we're contending with Middlesbrough now… I like the fact he looks an honest player unlike some of our more flash signings

yes we are far better off with non flashy in the long term, we are always chasing bargain basement flashy anyway!!
