Hello Hammers. Here is Tuesday’s lunchtime round up.
West Ham are interested in signing Wayne Rooney this summer, should he be allowed to leave Manchester United. (Sky Sports)
He would be a brilliant signing for us to make. However, I cannot see this being anymore than a rumour to get season ticket sales up.
Sam Byram says he has been left frustrated with the Hammers’ first half performance against Leicester last Saturday. (Newham Recorder)
For me, Sam did well last weekend. He was a bit shaky in some parts, but overall he looked okay. I hope he now gets a run in the team and can start to prove his worth to the team.
The London Stadium is set to host a Cricket World Cup match in 2019. (Sky Sports)
As much as I love the London Stadium, this is just another example of everything that is wrong with it. I do not like the idea of cricket being played at the stadium. I know it is not actually ours, but I still see it as West Ham’s stadium whenever I go.
Michael Gray says Jermain Defoe should have quit Sunderland in January and joined West Ham. (HITC)
I agree with Michael, he should have. But at the same time, we should have done more to sign him. He was rumoured to have wanted a return to West Ham, so I believe we should have done more. There is always the summer for us to get him too though.
West Ham fans feel that Slaven Bilic should not have sent Reece Oxford out on loan to Reading. (HITC)
With the injury to Winston Reid, I felt this could have been the perfect opportunity for Oxford to step in. It is just a shame that he has been sent out to Reading and is still not playing. I feel he is being wasted there to be honest.
West Ham legend Tony Gale has slammed Robert Snodgrass for his performance against Leicester last weekend. (HITC)
He has been a disappointment so far, but I am sure he will improve. He is a very good player in my opinion, and I am sure that we will soon see the best of him in the near future.
