And guess what, West Ham are being linked with every player that is over twenty and under forty surprise surprise. How the so called tabloids luv to put shit on our club, if their is a good player or a shit player out there we are linked with him in some form or another. Looking at the players out side we have Sakho, Carrol, Ayew leaving, looking at the players in side so far there must be at least sixty players mentioned so far but let's face it our owners won't get any of them unless they are cheap or loans.
Being realistic I can see a couple coming in but which ones is still a lottery. We need to look at what positions need to be addressed to fix up the team and keep us up. Firstly goalkeepers, Adrian is by far first choice. Just my opinion but Hart is past it so send him back to City and find a decent second, I don't know who is available but their has to be some decent ones out their.
Defence, We have Zabs and while not young he still puts in a shift. Reid who I suspect is playing with an old injury but is falling behind a bit now so why not give Oxford a go. Ginger is a warhorse but getting on Fonte, Ogbonna some good but the occasional blunder, Rice the best potential we have seen in years Cresswell another good day bad day player, and Byram who has been out with injury for a long time. Who do we let go to replace.
Midfield, We have some good players but for me that's the area we need to improve. Kouyate has been out of sorts for a long time now, Obiang on his day can be good but doesn't seem to play well with Kouyat. Noble, apart from the occasional bad foul always puts in a shift and is definitely the heart and soul of the club. Masuaku, since his move further up the field has been a revelation. Lanzini, for me is still the man that can make this team a force but just seems to be missing something. Arno, playing further forward has been our best but this is West Ham and you know that sooner or later will pick up an injury. And lastly Antonio, runs all day but not quite fit enough lately and with an injury.
Forwards, Chitorito is not having the best of runs at the moment but the way we play is not suiting him either, Carrol, unplayable when he is on the field,when. Sakho, wants out so hopefully someone buys him. Ayew, a disappointment even though he is our best goal scorer.
So who can we realistically get in that will improve our team and keep us up, I could mention some but I would like to hear some of your views and discussions. By the way, also like to hear what the news of Calkers trial with us on a free.
