Hello everyone and Merry Christmas! I love this time of year, and I hope all West Ham supporters out there enjoy the festive period too! Let’s hope we have one or two wins to celebrate.
It’s strange to play over Christmas for sure, but sometimes you get quite anxious to be back on the pitch again so I think that it is good. Afterwards, I want to do something different. I think it’s good for everybody to have the football and football makes everyone happy at Christmas time. It’s a bit strange that you play two days after another game here, but that is the rule. whufc.com

We spoke to Fletcher to get the lowdown on which Hammers stars are the best dressed and the worst, who has the best taste in music (in his opinion) and who has the worst, who is the angriest and who is the funniest and much, much more. standard.co.uk
Juve agree deal with Valencia for Zaza.
According to Il Messaggero, Juventus have found an agreement with Valencia for striker Simone Zaza. The 25-year-old Italian frontman, who is about to return to Turin after a disastrous spell at West Ham United, looks set to join up with his old mentor Cesare Prandelli in Spain after the tactician gave him his big break at international level when he was coach of the Azzurri.
The deal is thought to be for an initial loan once more with a view to sign the player on a permanent transfer in the summer for a fee of around €20 million. calciomercato.com
