I must admit to being somewhat puzzled.
Usually, West Ham's transfer windows are chaotic affairs - promises of big signings are never fulfilled, and there's usually a last minute panic buy of a has-been, a non-entity or a sicknote, with the Dildos resolutely keeping their wallets shut and going for the cheapest option; or else buying crocks and getting done up like kippers.
However things have all gone a bit weird this summer. We have spent upwards of £100m so far, and there are more players to come, apparently.All the players we've signed so far are quality - Issa Diop (Toulouse), Ryan Fredericks (Fulham), Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea), free agent Jack Wilshere (IF he stays fit), Andriy Yarmolenko (Borussia Dortmund), Fabian Balbuena (Corinthians) and, today, Felipe Anderson (Lazio).
We've broken our transfer record TWICE so far this window, first for Diop, then for Anderson. All these players are much quicker than most of the guys we buy, so I'm hoping that Pellegrini (what a coup it was getting him) is building a fast-moving, attacking side (MP has also indicated that he wants to play Arnie and Chicha together as a strike force, a prospect that has got Hammers fans rally excited)
Of course, there's the possibility (probability) that none of thse players will gel, and that we end up doing an Everton...
