Right Back In The Creek Without A Paddle Can Antonio Help?

The media do love a good story whether there is any truth in it or not, nowadays it is called fake news, back in the day it was just known as bovine excreta or words to that effect.

Hammers Will Attempt To Reduce Wage Bill Ahead Of Arrivals

Manuel Pellegrini has been very clear to state that he is not seeking to sell any players during the January transfer window, he has actually inferred that he wants to bring 'a couple more. The only fly in the ointment being that the Hammers hierarchy have sent a clear message that any incomings will have to be financed by outgoing player sales and possibly loan fees, after all it isn't as if they haven't backed their manager up already in the transfer market but enough is enough.

Hammers To Put Carroll In The Shop Window Ahead Of January

The usual scenario when Hammers striker Andy Carroll returns from one of his perrenial long term injuries is that he comes back for a couple of games, gets his Mojo back, plays a blinder and then picks up yet another injury, usually a long term one! The process of recovery then begins again as he takes back his permanently reserved place in the Kieron Dyer memorial ward of the club's medical facilities, however Carroll's potential return was temporarily suspended despite him being fit and available for the Manchester City game, was this part of a cunning plan?

Sometimes It's Not Good To Talk Marky

Unless you have been unable to see any Barclays Premier League football this season, it would be impossible not to be impressed with the league's runaway leaders style of play.

Little more than a Manchester City victory could be envisaged even by the most devoted and hard core of fans ahead of the match, but did they have to have it handed to them on a plate?

Hammers v Man City Fantasy Island Or Slaughter Of The Lambs?

The maginifcent 'fairly financed' Manchester City showboat rolls up at The London Stadium this weekend where 'Pelle's men will take on 'Pep's, the gulf in class will be obvious and many people will have written the home team's chances off without a thought. Manuel Pellegrini was replaced by Pep Guardiola at Manchester City despite winning the Premier League, the way he took the decision further ingratiated him with the City supporters who named him 'this gentle man' after the Smiths song of the same title.

Hold Your Horses Mouths Arnie

The media love a good transfer story to fill gaps left by the International void, England's last gasp win has ensured the country's presence at the Nations Cup finals next year thus ensuring the oiling of press expense accounts much to the relief of 'deprived' journo's! But as they say never let the truth get in the way of a good story, so the Arnoutovic to moving to either Man Utd, Man city or Chelsea are par to the course, Arnie is dammned if he talks and dammned if he doesn't.

Javier Hernandez Off To Spain In January - Barca Or Real?

With the exception of Europe's elite clubs, many of which are rumoured to be questionably funded, there are few teams if any that can afford to pay a player £7 Million per year in wages and yet only use them very sparingly. Javier Hernandez arrived from Bayer Leverkusen for a £16 Million fee but on enormous wages, he has barely been used by initially Slaven Billic, then David Moyes and now present manager Manuel Pellegrini.
