There are certain football players who look as if they came from the Halcyon days of the sport back in the fifties, one such player is Hammers transfer target, Blackburn Rover's Adam Armstrong. The powerful striker is only 24 years old, but looks 34 and even his name seems to have come from a bygone era!
One by one little records are being broken by a West Ham side that has been rejeuvinated by a rejeuvinated David Moyes. The Hammers manager looks like an entirely different person now from the cadava like image of 'ghostliness' that first turned up at the London Stadium, the 57 year old Scot has the air about him of someone who knows exactly what he is trying to achieve and precisely where he is trying to take his players.
Deadline day, or Deadly day? As the clock counts down Hammers fans will be hoping that there will not be any major outgoings from the club, particualrly that of Declan Rice. Unless the co-owners intend leaving the country permanently there is no way they will sanction the sale of the club's prized asset with just a few hours to go.
