To kick off this quiz on the goings-on at the London Stadium last week, according to Claret and Hugh, what is the supposed 'age ceiling' that David Moyes has set for signings?

The 30-year-old striker was recently released by Trabzonspor and is currently without a club (per Transfermarkt), for the Turkish side, the Englishman bagged a respectable seven goals and four assists in 16 appearances (per Transfermarkt).

Despite the former Liverpool and Chelsea man having netted 77 goals and provided 29 assists in 218 Premier League games during his career (per Transfermarkt), West Ham supporters were having none of it.

What do we think?

The main point which seemed to be raised by the London Stadium faithful is Sturridge’s injury record, with the striker having suffered eight injuries since September of last year (per Transfermarkt).

The striker is also currently banned until June for breaking betting rules (per The Guardian), which could be another solid reason for David Moyes’ outfit to stay well clear.
