One Eintracht Dud For Another?

Sebastian Haller and Luka Jovic formed part of the formidable Eintracht Franfurt goal machine that obliterated the Bundesliga, they were both sold on for huge money to West Ham and Real Madrid respectively, but not respectably some might say. Both players have failed miserably since their high profile moves, and both of the clubs involved couldn't wait to get rid of the 'duds' that they had signed.

Hammers ditched Haller this week, and Real are looking to get rid of Jovic on account of him not 'fitting in' to his manager's profile, whatever that is. The problem for Real Madrid is that while Jovic is not playing his value is dropping like a 'Felipe Anderson', the situation is compounded by the fact that there are no takers for the Serbian, who now looks and performs like a shadow of his former self. Consequently sending the forward out on loan seems inevitable for Los Blancos, and West Ham have been mentioned as a club who are interested. If Hammers were to risk signing the Madrid striker, it would be necessary for David Moyes to set the team up to suit to the player, it would be like ground hog day, with the team trying to facilitate another Eintracht dud.

There had once been a clamour to get hold of Jovic and link him up with his former colleague Haller at the London Stadium, however the hierarchy decided, quite rightly, that it could well have been a case of throwing good money after bad, although that said it might have worked but could have further destroyed the club's finances, there is also the fact that Haller and Jovic were part of a front three that included Ante Rebic, would Moyes have needed to get in all three together in order to make them an effective scoring unit again?

Obviously that couldn't happen, so media 'chat' regarding West Ham's interest in Jovic seems a little implausible, especially given their Sebastien 'Hallerucination' Experience. Of course if the deal was 'extremely attractive' David Sullivan would probably lean on David Moyes to explore a deal, but you get the feeling that Moyes most definitely doesn't welcome too much input from a man who normally cannot resist getting involved in 'special deals', the list is endless, the success rate sharply finite!

Jovic isn't a Moyes type of player, and as such will be low on the list for Haller replacements, but if things get desperate don't rule out another dodgy Frankfurter! - Ed

The only DUDS here are G&S. The simple move would have been to keep Haller (yes, I know you will kill me for saying that) and get his buddy Jovic on loan. It worked at EF, no reason why it wouldn't work again. At this rate the clowns in charge of the circus have sold the dinning room table and are now buying the chairs!!! Couldn't run a booze up in a brewery!

As it stands we have NO striker. Gossip says we are looking at Sarr at Watford. Now he is class but........ Hes not a Striker!!!!

Sounds like a plot from Minder. "Ere Dave, nice little earner. I know this geezer, kicks a bag of wind about on a Sat afternoon. He used to play for this German lot. Went to Spain for some sun and sangria. He's available on the cheap, seems he's surplus now. I'm gonna offer him to those two lemons over at Stratford. You in Dave?"

"I dunno Arfur. I'd get the full strength on him first, could turn out to be another sack load of Merde!!!!
