Good afternoon, Hammers. Here is what is in the news regarding the club today:
Joe Hart says that he is currently fully focused on West Ham, rather than England. (Independent)
I have to admit that I have been one of Joe’s biggest critics this season, but he has proved me wrong since he returned to the side. He was absolutely brilliant yesterday and he showed just how good he can be. I am glad that he is fully focused on us, and I wouldn’t expect anything less. Hopefully he keeps his form up from now until the end of the season, and if he does then I think David Moyes has a big decision to make in terms of his future.
David Moyes has downplayed links to Tom Cairney, after the Fulham midfielder and recent Hammers target was seen sitting behind the West Ham dugout yesterday. (Evening Standard)
David Moyes is a well known admirer of Cairney, and we know that he was a target in January. I can see us going for him again in the summer and I do hope we get him, because he s a very good player.
Everton and West Ham are battling to sign former Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa in the summer. (HITC)
Kagawa is a player that does not interest me. He has played in the Premier League before, but he never really got going. I do think that there are better options out there for us to be considering.
Declan Rice says he is proud to have proved a point against Chelsea yesterday, years after being released by the Blues. (Evening Standard)
Declan was absolutely outstanding yesterday, and it is quite unbelievable to think that he is only 18 years old. He is so mature for a young player, and he looks like he has been playing at the top level for years. He has a very big future ahead of him, and I fully believe that we are looking at our next club captain.
Javier Hernandez has called on David Moyes to give him more starts, after the Mexican striker rescued a point for the Hammers yesterday. (Daily Mail)
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp says that West Ham forward Javier Hernandez is one of the best finishers in the world, after his goal against Chelsea yesterday. (Sky Sports)
Javier Hernandez is a natural goalscorer. He has scored goals at every club he has played for, and I agree with Redknapp when he says he is one of the best. Yesterday is a perfect example as to why we signed him, and he deserves more starts in this team. We have a very good squad when they are all playing at 100%, and we need to start building the team around Hernandez in my opinion.
