What future for Robert Snodgrass?

With all the new signings will there be a future at West Ham for Robert Snodgrass? Teams like Sunderland and Middlesbrough are already rumoured to be interested in him, though I'm not sure we should give up on a £10 million investment. He didn't play well after joining us last season, his main contribution being an assist in Kouyate's vital goal against Swansea. Too often he misplaced passes and didn't look at all at home in a claret and blue shirt. 

But we should remember that new signings are often better in their second season and he will now have had a full pre-season with WHU. Snodgrass had scored five Premier League goals from open play (including a cracking free kick against Everton) plus a couple of penalties for Hull in the first half of last season, so we know he can do it in the Premier League. 

It's also worth noting that he's scored 78 goals in his career and was popular with the fans at Leeds, Norwich and Hull. Might a goal get him going at West Ham? We're going to need a strong squad and although Snoddy might not start, he gives West Ham options as a right winger or as a creative player behind the strikers if Lanzini is out. Rather than sell him at a loss it's surely better to give him another season to show he can produce for the Irons.

Brighton are still interested in him?

He had 6 months in a mis-firing team, ridiculous to dismiss an international player. We need to cheer players on when they wear the shirt not hinder them
