West Ham smashed their transfer record yesterday with the £45m acquisition of Sebastien Haller - can he be the man to fire the Hammers into the top seven? 

Following the disappointment of failing to sign Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo - with the Uruguay forward favouring a switch to Valencia - Manuel Pellegrini and co swiftly moved onto the next target and what an excellent coup it could turn out to be.

The France striker scored 20 goals and chipped in with 12 assists for Eintracht Frankfurt last season, but how will he adapt to Premier League football?

The talking trio of James Jones, William Pugh and Brad Pinard discussed what West Ham fans can expect from the 25-year-old striker, giving their predictions for how many goals they think Haller will score in the Premier League next season.

Also on the show, the lads questioned West Ham's inability to sell players for a reasonable fee following the news that Sam Byram was sold to Norwich City for £750k.

To conclude, there is a debate for 'legend of the week', a rundown of the pre-season encounter with Manchester City and discussion over the strikers West Ham have suffered with over the years.

It's exciting times in east London, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
