Hello everyone. Here is what has been in the news today regarding West Ham:
David Moyes is unlikely to remain as West Ham manager beyond the end of the season, even if the club avoid relegation. (Evening Standard)
However, a new report today suggests that Moyes will be offered a new two-year-deal as West Ham manager if the club avoid relegation. (Evening Standard)
David Moyes was appointed as our manager to keep us in the Premier League. If he achieves that and we stay up relatively comfortably, then he fully deserves to stay in my opinion. However, if we stay up by the skin of our teeth then I would have to think twice about it.
We have improved massively under Moyes since his appointment in November, and I believe that he can be a success in the long term for us with the correct backing.
Pedro Obiang has undergone a successful operation on a knee injury that he sustained at the end of January against Wigan. (Sky Sports)
Its such a shame that Obiang is out for the rest of the season again, because I am sure the same happened this time last year too. I am sure that Pedro will come back stronger again, and that he will be ready to go again next season.
Lille were very keen to sell their captain Ibrahim Amadou to West Ham on Transfer Deadline Day last week. (Football London)
I must admit I had never heard of him until Deadline Day, but I assumed he was going to Palace if anyone. I heard that we were interested in him, but we never seemed to make a move. I would like to see us try again for him in the summer, especially if they are keen to sell him to us.
Terry Westley has hailed Marcus Browne’s performance for the West Ham Under 23’s last night. (HITC)
I didn’t manage to see the U23’s game last night, but Marcus Browne has always been a talented player in my opinion. I hope he is one of the next youngsters in our ranks to get his chance in the first team. I think he is a very exciting prospect, along with Nathan Holland.
Manuel Lanzini has issued a positive update on his hamstring injury. (Football London)
I can’t wait for Manu to be back. We miss him so much when he plays, and that has been evident in the past couple of games. Once we have him fit again, Marko Arnautovic will also be back too. I don’t know about anyone else, but a front four of Lanzini, Arnautovic, Joao Mario and Chicharito excites me a lot.
