Should have signed him.
Hernandez scored more goals in 2 seasons than Welbeck scored in 5. Coupled with his knack of scoring at important times (breakthroughs, equalisers and winners) compared to Danny missing chances when it mattered (Bayern) and it's understandable why one is remembered more favourably than the other.His goalscoring record is actually better than I thought it was in last two seasons. Thought he was struggling to even get five goals a year but he scored 8 and 7 goals in last two seasons which isn't terrible when you think he was just back up to Aranutovic. Even scored this season v Brighton.
One thing I've never really got though as a neutral on this forum is why he's treated as a demi god and yet Welbeck is routinely abused and laughed at. Both played their squad parts in championship success at Man United. Both then went to CL standard clubs and it didn't work out. Hernandez been at mid table West Ham last two seasons and now Welbeck at Watford.
Don't really understand the extreme reactions when speaking about those two.
