Hibernation Haller To Step Out?

West Ham fans around the Globe hope, ney pray that new boys Bowen and Soucek will provide the extra bounce to inspire the beleagured Irons to safety. One of the most talked about issues, apart from the glaring defensive problems, is the form of the misfiring Sebastian Haller, he is undoubtedly an excellent finisher, but requires 5 star service in order to get his job done. It is as if Haller is so used to dining at the Ritz that he has forgotten how to push himself in to the front of the queue at Witherspoon's!

Hopefully 'Chicken Kiev' will be able to have a word in his shell like, with the aid of an interpreter of course due to Haller's impeccable English, someone, especially like Kevin Nolan needs to show a big strapping lad like Haller how to 'remind' centre backs who's the boss and also when and where to 'fall over'.

Haller is enigmatic in that you know somewhere within that stoic frame lurks a really good footballer, but it seems like he went in to hibernation the very first time the now sacked 'El Pel' dropped him from the team, he HAS to step up to the plate, there is no reason he shouldn't, perhaps he and Issa Diop need to do a bit of 'froggy' bonding in order to bring out the 'Beast' that is simmering away inside Haller.

The time has come for Haller to be a man, put himself about and act like the defender's nightmare that he should be, Manuel Pellegrini's insistance on not adapting his system to incorporate Haller's unique qualities was tantamount to managerial suicide, of course aided and abbetted by the appalling Roberto that is what eventuallly happened.

Haller went in to Hibernation, it is time for him to step out and prove that he is not a flop, or 'fiasco' when translated to French! - Ed

Dicks is the man's picture

I agree. I hear what the critics on here are saying and they are right. my point however is we need this guy and we need him scoring. he has the quality, Moyes just needs to get it out of him ala Arnautovic and fast.

Agree Dicks but I think Moyes has to allow him his natural position which strangely for a big man, its not a target role. Last season he played off the centre of the striker.

He plays well in a two. God knows why they signed him as a lone striker. He won’t do the grunt work and Moyes will never play two up front, so all in all wishful thinking unfortunately

At the moment we are 2nd bottom,the next 7 games are debateable if we will even get a couple of points!by then the confidence could be shot to pieces...time for this team to show some bloody fight

You can never tell. Doesn't matter who we're playing, you can't predict. I don't subscribe to these fixture list predictions. We went to Chelsea and won, everyone said no points there.
