More like Eminem - Terry Butcher not impressed by West Ham's new striker Emmanuel Emenike

The Nigerian missed a golden opportunity to be the hero for West Ham today.

West Ham United fought back this afternoon to deal Norwich City a bitter blow in their survival hopes. The Hammers were 2-0 down and looking down and out but then fought back to pick up a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road after goals from Dimitri Payet and Mark Noble.

The result however could have been different, if new signing Emmanuel Emenike hit the back of the net late on.

The transfer window arrival on loan from Fenerbahce the Nigerian had a chance to take all three points away from the game in Norfolk.

But he fluffed his lines and ball went harmlessly into the hands of John Ruddy.

Speaking as part of the BBC commentary on the game legendary former England captain was not impressed at all with the effort at all, and let everyone know that with comic effect, stating:

"More like Eminem than Emenike, what a chance that was.

"He completely missed his kick.

"John Ruddy was the most surprised man on the pitch as the ball bounced in into his hands."

Emenike was brought in from Turkish football after a spell in the Middle East with Al Ain - with the intention of providing cover to the strike department at Upton Park.

But he has so far yet to look up to the task from his two cameos for the club.

Hopefully his sharpness will return before the end of the season.
