Are Hammers Scraping The Smörgåsbord?

With only Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia and the recently arrived Nene available as the club's strikers there is a paucity of choice up front in case there are injuries or suspensions. Elliot Lee and Mauro Zarate are out on loan to Luton Town and QPR respectively, so it is strange that Hammers are looking towards a Swedish teenager for the future. 18 year old striker, Robert Lipovac, plays for BK Hacken in Gothenburg, but his club have given him permission to visit West Ham this week where he is training with the club's U21 squad.

Hammers Fans Under Scrutiny

The acts of a minority will sully (no pun intended) the acts of the decent majority in all walks and aspects of life, as has been painfully apparent of late, courtesy of the mindless Chelsea supporters in Paris. However before looking down on the actions of those supporters, West Ham fans should be incredibly wary of the fact that the World's sporting press will seize any snippet of negativity they can, and a visit to White Hart Lane provides prime fodder for the red tops.

Sam(e) Old Story

Those West Ham fans hoping to see Nene make the squad for Sunday's match against Tottenham would do well to consider these comments by the erstwhile Mr Allardyce in his Evening Standard column "We have signed Brazilian offensive player Nene on an initial short-term contract. Now we have to get him fit as quickly as we can, his scoring record at PSG was impressive and we looked at him a year ago before he moved to Qatar. As soon as he’s fit, he’ll be in the squad and hopefully he will have an impact for us."

Nene Nuance

West Ham have announced the signing of former Paris St Germain striker Nene until the end of the season, subject to international clearance. This is a David Sullivan signing that should make those who confronted him after the Baggies Cup defeat feel even more ashamed than they should be. In a clear move away from the Allardyce agenda, Co owner and majority shareholder has shown, despite family issues ,that he is prepared to move boldly forward , with or without the support of David Gold and Karren Brady.
