West Ham Staff Fund Franco Transfer

Today's Evening Standard claim that chief executive Scott Duxbury and technical director Gianluca Nani helped fund the deal that brought Mexican striker Guillermo Franco to the club.

Although Franco was available on a free transfer The Standard claim that the club's owners were unwilling to pay the player and his agent. Therefore Duxbury and Nani are said to have both taken "a hit on their annual salary" to ensure the striker's signing.

I haven't got time to moderate the comments. So it is either get rid of them entirely or put up with the odd idiot.

I'll keep them on for a while and see if the situation improves.

If this is true and Duxbury and Nani have taken a cut in wages so West Ham can sign "Franco" then that is a great gesture and maybe changes my opinion of Duxbury slightly who for a long time I have been unsure about..........Just hope that the promises that were made (keeping best players / not selling to the Spuds) are kept......IRONS!!!!!
