There is boring and then there is VERY boring, well very boring is hardly enough to describe the long running 'will he or won't he?' Jesse Lingard to West Ham transfer saga. Fans and those associated with the club have become 'sick as a parrot' with the on off transfer which initially goes back to when the player returned to his parent club Manchester United following an incredibly successful loan spell that saw the midfelder called back into the full England Squad.
Eventually Lingard elected to stay in Manchester AND 'FIGHT FOR HIS PLACE' which didn't turn out the way he planned. He then was offered another shot at playing for the Irons, this time on a permanent basis but instead chose to sign for newly promoted Forest for what turned out to be a disastrous season.
Forest bounced him at the end of the year because of his totally ineffectual performances and since then he has been without a club, despite 'interest' from various parties. The fact is Lingard is a busted flush who might have the odd good game left in him but is a shadow of the player who arrived on loan two years ago.
As we have previously mentioned, there is NO room at West Ham for past it 'big time' Charlies. The club's generosity in allowing Lingard to train should never have been mistaken for an intent to sign the player, merely a gesture of goodwill that was widely and inaccurately reported by the media.
Most people would wish Lingard good luck, but NOT at West Ham! On your bike son..Ed
