After David Moyes’ assertion, a Sky Sports anchor thinks West Ham should solve a significant issue with striker alternatives.
Presenters in sports programs often have an impartial and objective role to play.
It thus says volumes that the guy who is perhaps the most well-known in that role at the moment felt obliged to express his thoughts over West Ham on Sunday.
It feels like the same old thing all the time when it comes to West Ham and their attackers.
Gianluca Scamacca became the 51st striker to sign for West Ham in the previous 13 years, adding his name to a long list.
However, much like an excessive number of others, such as number 52 Danny Ings, who came after in January, the Italian was not successful at West Ham.
The fact that he was sold to Atalanta after just one season speaks much about West Ham’s struggles to find a suitable forward since he was not replaced.
That’s even though the majority of supporters and analysts have long agreed that the Hammers should prioritize acquiring a top striker.
It appears as though Michael Antonio’s time as a Premier League forward is over at almost 34 and he hasn’t scored a goal since August.
Divin Mubama, a rising star, is refusing to agree to a new contract. And let’s not even talk about Ings with West Ham supporters.
Sky Sports anchor suggests West Ham must sign striker
Supporters believe West Ham will lose out in the fight for European places as a result of their inability to buy a striker in the summer.
Jarrod Bowen is now considered a striker possibility, and David Moyes stated he had had enough in that role.
However, following that Moyes assertion, even a Sky Sports anchor says West Ham has to solve a serious issue about striker choices.
These days, Dave Jones is the primary football presenter for Sky Sports.
He also brought attention to West Ham supporters’ dissatisfaction with their lack of alternatives up front by pointing out that Nottingham Forest had three legitimate strikers available.
Can Steidten find Antonio heir?
“With all the attributes mentioned, is it not possible to argue that Bowen is more suited to play on the right side, where he has excelled and scored seven goals this season?” Jones stated during Super Sunday on Sky Sports.
“Maybe as they go into January, West Ham supporters still feel that the central (striker) position needs to be addressed.”
It is, in fact.
Yes says he has found it tough to locate excellent forwards, even though other teams have been successful in doing so. He argues there is a global talent shortage.
Many strikers have been linked to West Ham both in the summer and before the January transfer window. Now that Tim Steidten, the technical director, is in control of hiring, all we can do is hope he can locate West Ham the appropriate player.
