Jesse lingard's omission from Gareth Southgate's England squad assembled to play the delayed Euro's starting on the 13th of June, will have a knock on effect in many ways, not all of which are bad for West Ham. Lingard's stock and value sky rocketed following his loan deal to West Ham from Manchester united, such was his stunning form that he was included in Southgate's England squad for the first time since the 2018 World Cup.
According to various sources, West Ham are well on their way to their first major signing of the summer as they pursue a deal that will bring 'hot property' Alex Kral to the London Stadium, in fact some reports go as far as to say that the player has already agreed personal terms with West Ham United ahead of his anticipated move from Spartak Moscow.
Ahead of Hammers 'next cup final', the words used by Mark Noble to describe the sequence of seven games that will determine the club's European destiny, a crumb of 'injury' comfort has been revealed, it may be conjecture or 'porkies' but David Moyes stated the following in his pre-match presser this morning.
There has been plenty of debate regarding the Irons ability to cope without Declan Rice for what might be the rest of the season, although fears of his lay off have been slightly tempered by his social media interaction showing him 'embracing' his rehabilitation at the club's 'goose green' training facility.
What is it with West Ham and players getting crocked while on international duty? The news that every Hammers fan dreaded, but in a way anticipated, of the injury Declan Rice picked up while playing against Poland has been greeted with as much doom and gloom as can be shown.
It has seemed like an age since West Ham United's underwhelming 3-3 'defeat' to Arsenal at the as yet unnamed London Stadium, so it is only natural that gossip and heresay goes in to overdrive, especially if the players concerned have performed well on the International stage.
Having drunk the 'troubled West Ham' well dry, the media have consolidated their stance now on unsettling Hammers star Declan Rice by inventing claims that escalate on a daily basis from the outlandish, to straight out and out porkies, generated by mischievous writers who have had their collective noses put out of joint by the steady progress made by David Moyes's 'Boys of 21".
Josh Cullen had his loan spell at Charlton from West Ham extended due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and is due to return to his parent club when the season finally ends, his current contract with the Irons is due to end on 30.06.2021 and important decisions need to be made for the player and club as to how best to move forward.
Like him or loathe him you cannot begrudge David Moyes' moment of joy, the much maligned Hammers manager, often portrayed as a cartoon zombie, 'ressurected' the fettid and rotting cadava of a team that he inherited from the previous 'daddy of them all' zombie on watch Manuel Pllegrini. There were two exceptions to the bloated imbalanced squad that Moyes had to motivate and mould after taking over the club's management for the second time, his two acquisitions during the January transfer window, Jarred Bowen and Tomas Soucek.
