Wolves Hungry For Hammers
West Ham's next Premier League opponents Wolves, have been showing more than an unhealthy interest in Hammers defensive stalwart Craig 'Balon Dawson' and 'unhappy' striker Michail Antonio. Dawson's desire to return oop north is well documented and it is accepted he will be back where his family are from sooner rather than later.
Michail Antoinio's recent throwing of his toys out of the pram is a more recent development and the reasons behind his discontent are apparently multitudinous. It is hard to understand what Antonio's beef is. Does he resent another striker taking his place in the starting line up? If so he needs to take a look from the outside in to gain a better perspective.
Antoinio 'saw off' Sebastien Haller from the club, but that was then and this is now, a couple of years is a lifetime in football, especially for a player the wrong side of 30 years old. It is totally unrealistic of Antonio to expect to be starting every game when the club have splashed out big bucks on a younger and fitter player in the same position.
Antonio is on decent money at the club so perhaps the only reason he is seeking out is to pursue more game time, which is surprising given Hammers atrocious injury record, all big Mick has to do is bide his time and he will get plenty of opportunities to play.
Either way, both Antonio and Dawson will be able to show case their skills to their prospective new club if they are selected to play, you never now, David Moyes might just feel warranted to NOT include either player in his starting line up, we will see on Saturday afternoon! - Ed
