So Zavon Hines has turned down a contract with West Ham, with rumours suggesting that he was so fed up with the way that he was treated last season that he wants to make a clean break from the club. Certainly I picked up on one tweet from the illiterate numbskull when he moaned after a training session, "Some days theres (sic) no pleasing some people".
Of course, if Hines wants to go, there's no way we can make him stay. The fact that we paid him a wage through a whole year when he was laid off injured won't come in to the reckoning. Nor will the fact that we gave him his break in the game. Nor the fact that Hines was responsible for getting Wigan back into the game in that winner takes all relegation six pointer. Hines clearly feels he owes the club and its fans nothing. Just like Defoe and Parker for that matter.
So I'm wondering what the Hines Portfolio will look like. Owen put together such a classy presentation that Ferguson fell for it and signed him. Mind you, he had something to talk about. The Hines Portfolio will consist of just three chapters: The Goal What I Scored Against Macclesfield; The Goal What I Scored Against Millwall; and The Goal What I Scored Against Aston Villa. One Premiership goal in 9 starts and a further 13 appearances as a substitute - it doesn't exactly set the pulses racing does it?
Of course there will also be the other chapter, "Zavon Hines, the New Michael Owen". That chapter can detail his injury history!
If he wants to go, fcuk him. I suspect that in a few years time, Hines will be on the books of Westcliff-On-Sea via Southend.
