Michail Antonio It's His Time And It's Raining Strikers!

Victor Moses' unavailability to play against his parent club chelsea in this weekend's london derby against west ham, opens the door for Michail Antonio to make his full debut and show Hammers fans why the club shelled out over £7 Million for an as yet unproven winger/striker from second tier team Nottingham Forest. Some might question if Antonio can cope with the non stop relentless pace that is the Barclays Premier League, but nothing in his earlier footballing career suggests that he will not be able to survive and thrive towards the upper echelons of footballing greatness, such is his pedigree, he is a fighter as well as being an artist. West Ham manager Slaven Billic's only injury problem is the continued lack of availability of inspirational centre back Winston Reid because of a hip injury, but his place in the starting line up will be taken by the 'ginger pele' who is Wales international James Collins. Enner Valencia will be champing at the bit to start, but perceived wisdom is that he will be brought on later in the game to try and exploit his pace against an ageing Chelsea defence, so on the bench there could well be Carroll, Valencia, Zarate and Jelovic! Crikey Mikey, it's raining strikers!

Is Song going to be on the bench this weekend too? Worth giving Antonio his bow and if he's struggling repace him in the 2nd half with Valencia. Thorw Carroll on too to get stuck into them as they wilt under the endless wave of attacks

I think that was a garbage report, he is on a season long loan, Barca can't call him back. And why we would send him back after deciding to pay his high wages?
