When I read this piece, I had to re-read it…and not just once!
Luis Boa Morte is unsure of his future at West Ham United.
The former Arsenal and Fulham player told O Jogo: “I cannot hide that I would like to play more and I have no idea why I am not played more.
“Every time the coach played me, I did well on the pitch, which is why I wish I played more often.
“Returning to Portugal? At the moment nothing’s for sure but, whatever happens, West Ham United will need my agreement if they want to make a deal.” (tribalfootball.com)
I think it’s safe to say that the signing of Luis Boa Morte was a hideous mistake. The purchase of the then 29 year old for £5m was clearly a rip off and even if the fee had been a fraction of what it was it would still have proven to be a failure. Yes it’s true that on his day whilst at Fulham the Portuguese international could occasionally turn a game on its head but clearly he has been a very disappointing signing since his arrival almost two years ago. Are there any West Ham fans who feel their number 13 (how very apt) has been anything other than a costly mistake?
