Brady criticises Snodgrass signing

Karren Brady has become the latest member of West Ham's Board to criticise the signing of £10million Scottish international Robert Snodgrass.

Hot on the heels of co-Chairman David Sullivan, who recently told a newspaper that his sons "begged me not to sign" Robert Snodgrass and fellow Hammer Jose Fonte last January, Brady used her weekly column in a tabloid newspaper to similarly slam the capture of the former Hull City winger.

Speaking about the forthcoming transfer window, that opens this coming Monday (New Year's Day), Brady wrote: "We’ve tried to have a successful January transfer window before and sometimes it’s worked.

"Other times, there has been an element of ‘we must do something, anything’ - and we’ve paid for ill-fitting players. Robert Snodgrass wasn’t exactly a triumph, while Hammers fans could name several foreign players who added little.

"The obvious fact is we need one or two who the manager believes will be a real plus. But no bargains that fall apart under the Prem’s pressure."

Brady, 49, also used her latest column to congratulate Spurs striker Harry Kane for his goalscoring record in 2017 - "not because of Tottenham but because what is good for the No 10 is even better for England in the World Cup".

She also praised Burnley manager Sean Dyche for possessing "a trim goatee" and a "well-razored hairline" - which, according to West Ham's vice-chair, suggests "the air of a man in complete control".
