‘Poor Man’s Andy Carroll’ ‘Did We Keep The Receipt?’ West Ham Fans Not Happy As Record Signing Flatters To Deceive Once Again

West Ham striker Sebastien Haller was pretty anonymous despite playing the full 90 minutes in the 3-3 draw against Brighton on Saturday.

The Frenchman did not have a shot of note, and his inability to make an impact of proceedings has led to increasing concern among supporters on Twitter over whether they got value for money when the club paid £45m for the player in the summer:

A return of six goals in 26 appearances isn’t what fans were expecting when the Hammers broke their transfer record for Haller back in July. There have been some mitigating factors in that he has not been given sufficient support or the right service that plays to his strengths.

However, it has become increasingly apparent that he lacks the work rate required to be playing as a frontline striker in the Premier League. Whether his confidence is low or not, the bare minimum fans ask for is for players to put in a shift, and Haller will have to do a lot more if he wants to keep his place in the side.
