It's Not Just Haller!

When he was at Eintrecht Frankfurt, West Ham United's record signing, Sebastian Haller, played alongside Luka Jovic, between the two of them they bagged 53 goals in their last season together. Haller made his big move to the Barclays Premier League whereas Jovic elected to join Real Madrid as one of their 'Galacticos'.

Together they were unstoppable, working closely in tandem, however since they went their separate ways neither of them have been able to re-create the sort of form that earned them their big money moves.

Haller's goal to game ratio is an embarrassing 1 in 5, whereas for Jovic the stats are even worse! The 22 year old played 14 La Liga games this season, but he has only managed to find the back of the net on one occasion despite hitting 36 goals during his time in Germany. Jovic made the switch from Eintrecht Frankfurt to the Bernabeu for a fee of £55 million, and Haller for £45 Million.

So, the £100 Million of talent that yielded 53 goals when the pair were in tandem at Eintrecht, now has produced just SEVEN goals between them. Both West Ham and Real Madrid would never have envisaged the miserly return on their substantial investments, which rather raises the question as to whether the valuation of both players hadn't been cleverly hyped by Frankfurt, why else would they have let both players leave at the same time?

In an ideal World, Weest Ham would be able to take Jovic on loan and see if it were possible for he and Haller to strike up a formidable partnership again, this time at the London Stadium, stranger things have happened. - Ed

None of this makes sense because Haller does not run around. Hang on a minute I'll rephrase that. Haller does not run period. Stick a pair of gloves on him and he becomes Freddie Piquionne. He stands there arms out saying I wanted it there!!! Well Mr Lazy Haller if you want it there!!! Then you have to jeffing move to get the jeffing ball. Jeffing Cockwomble!!!!
