Unless there is a 'cunning' plan afoot, West Ham United appear to have shut up shop early on transfer deadline day. No frenzied candle burning at the Boleyn, no mysterious fat over weight mercenaries waiting in a near by Hotel hoping for one more excessive pay day, and no hopes of fans to be dashed! Pretty boring in one way, but on the other hand the club's work was already done earlier in the year with a very successful recruitment of top players who have all proved their worth.

OK it was not this season's third victory against Liverpool, but this hard fought FA Cup 4th round 0 - 0 draw at Anfield has surely put West Ham United in the driving seat to progress to the 5th round with the replay to be held under the floodlights at the Boleyn Ground in a tie that could well turn out to be revenge for the infamous 'Gerrard' and Scaloni 2006 FA Cup final.

Emmanuel Emenike is due to have a medical at the Spire Roding Hospital today ahead of his loan move to West Ham United, after Fenerbahce finally accepted West Ham's loan offer for the 28 year old Nigerian striker. Eminike had been on loan to Al Ain in Dubai from Fenerbahce, and one of the reasons for the delay in the transfer was that Al Ain had to 'un sign' the player on loan in order that he could be released to join up with Slaven Billic's Hammers chargers!

In among the action of what turned out to be a memorable match between West Ham United and Manchester City, one of the last few remaining at the Boleyn Ground or Upton Park as commentators insist on calling it, there was a moment that was lost to most of the media and observers, it was similar to when Pele and Bobby Moore embraced following their epic duel in the Mexico World Cup, each the absolute definition of perfection in their footballing role.

Every cloud has a silver lining, so the expression goes, and thirteen is supposed to be unlucky, so it must have been with great trepidation that Sam Byram, who had just completed his move from Leeds United, took to the stage at the Boleyn yesterday on the thirteenth minute to replace Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson in the enthralling 2 - 2 draw against Manchester City. Byram was not supposed to even be at the club, yet alone making his debut in such a high profile match, originally the club weren't even going to buy him until the summer.

An enthralling match at the Boleyn ended with Chek Kayoute clipping the bar as West Ham nearly did the double over Champions elect Manchester City, in all honesty a draw was probably a fair result, but yet again Slaven Billic managed to guide his side to a creditable if not totally satisfying draw. In a way it is a testament to how far Hammers have progressed that there is a feeling of discontent among fans that this game did not end up with three points in the bag!
