Dzeko A No No For Hammers

With the transfer gossip in overdrive West Ham United have been linked with just about every player that has a pulse! So probably the best way to sort the wheat from the chaff is by eliminating those players linked with a move to the London Stadium as and when their transfers are confirmed to other clubs. One such player is Ex-Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, given his previous association with Manuel Pellegrini, many observers thought that West Ham would be his logical destination, and after all West Ham do have a lot of previous when it comes to signing players 'in the twilight' of their careers.

Fortunately the 33 year old Bosnia international is leaving from Roma to Inter Milan, having already agreed terms on a two year deal. Some Hammers fans may see missing out on getting in a proven goal scorer like Dzeko as a sign of a lack of ambition, whereas the vast majority, including us at the Org, are mightily relieved that the club's new transfer policy is based on players for the future, not players from the past.

The long overdue revamp of Chadwell Heath, allied to the continuing development of Rush green, shows the penny has finally dropped that youth development is one of the only ways West Ham United will ever be able to compete with the 'top' clubs, not forgetting the undoubted recruitment skills of Mario Husillos of course. Players are there out in the ether, it is just a question of finding them! Fabian Balbuena is a classic example of creative research, how many people in this country had ever heard of him before his arrival on these shores?

In Mario Hussilos the club have a head of recruitment who operates in the 'dark zone', pictures of him are few and far between, as he prefers to do his business quietly, none of the could have, should have, would have syndrome that used to be associated with the club's transfer policy. Husillos tends to act, and then reveal his acquisitions instead of blurting out false hopes, so long as Husillos and Pellegrini are at the helm fans can rest easy knowing that the fate of their club is in capable hands. - Ed
