Good afternoon, here is Dan Chapman’s round up.
Slaven Bilic has cancelled the West Ham players Christmas party. (Sky Sports)
I’m with Slav on this. Although it seems harsh, the players need to keep working right now. You can party when we are safer.
Antonio Conte says he has sympathy for West Ham striker Simone Zaza. (Goal)
I sympathise with Zaza too, but he just isn’t cut out for the Premier League. If he does leave, hopefully he does well wherever he goes.
David Sullivan has commented on West Ham’s plans for the January transfer window. (HITC)
Yeah comment on what we want, don’t make the same mistake of telling everyone who we want and how much we want to spend in the summer.
Reports are suggesting that Slaven Bilic is considering selling Andy Carroll in the January transfer window. (HITC)
No way I am believing that. Andy Carroll is the best forward at the club and Slav clearly rates him highly. Would be silly to get rid of him.
Karren Brady has won back the hearts of Hammers fans as she made a joke about Spurs on the final of The Apprentice. (Essex Live)
Michail Antonio says West Ham’s luck has changed after the wins against Burnley and Hull. (Essex Live)
Our luck may have turned, but we need to work harder still. Keep going boys.
Angelo Ogbonna says this week has been a dream for him, after West Ham collected 7 points and his son was born. (whufc.com)
I thought Ogbonna was a bit shaky this week, but hopefully he starts to pick up form again now. Congratulations Angelo!
Mark Noble says West Ham’s confidence is starting to grow after picking up 7 points last week. (ESPN)
Keep working hard and we will keep getting the results. We all know what these players are really capable of.
Michy Batshuayi is becoming frustrated at his lack of opportunities at Chelsea, with West Ham monitoring the striker. (Sun)
I would take him without a doubt. He hasnt played many games but when he has, he has scored. Would link up brilliantly with Payet and Ayew too.
