Arnie’s anger with Pellegrini analysed

Marko Arnautovic’s brief show of anger at Manuel Pellegrini when subbed against Birmingham City demonstrated something pretty enthralling about both men on Saturday afternoon.

Carroll: “I think I’m good in both boxes”

Andy Carroll announced his return to goal action and is not unnaturally very happy about that – it was a decent way 0f celebrating his 30 birthday yesterday!

Diangana has a dream

Grady Diangana once again impressed as we beat Birmingham and already his mind set on Wembley. The youngster’s progress this season has been one of the features of the campaign and although we await his first Premier League goals, they can’t be far away.

West Ham January window interest has reduced even further with the excellent performances of Samir Nasri and players returning from injury. It’s been clear for some time now that the club and manager believe they are in a strong enough position not to bothered with too much January activity.

Adrian takes chance and looks for more

What may or may not happen to Adrian at the end of the season remains to be seen although it is difficult to see him extending his contract or renewing it. I admire Adrian given the miseries he has suffered over recent years when even fiding himself playing second fiddle to Darren Randolph. At no […]

Nasri ready for the Gunners

Samir Nasi is happy with life and ready to achieve things after his highly impressive start for the Hammers against Birmingham City yesterday.

Nasri class shines like a beacon

Make no mistake, Samir Nasri is a proper player and it’s understandable that many of us failed to understand the wave of criticism when it became apparent the boss wanted him. Sadly I would maintain that Jack Wilshere was a mistake – a decision made in haste and one of which we will repent at […]

Adrian: Decent smother save near the end but lost track of a corner which eventually saw Carroll clear off line and dived full length for shots obviously going wide. Rusty 5 Antonio: Still so scary as a right back but always a handful going forward. if only he could improve first touch 6 Diop: Still not […]

Arnie linked with Chelsea

Paul Merson will hardly have endeared himself to many Irons fans this morning with his new comments on Marko Arnautovic’s future.
