Sakho grateful for Drogba’s help

Diafra Sakho has paid tribute to Didier Drogba whom he said has helped him settle into the Premier League.

Fanimo makes debut for Tranmere Rovers

Hammers youngster Mattthias Fanimo finally made his Tranmere Rovers debut off the bench in their 1-0 defeat to Carlisle United in  League Two on Saturday. The 20-year-old winger came on in the 80th minute when the side were 1-0 down after conceding just 8 minutes earlier.

Sakho has no case to answer

Diafra Sakho will not face retrospective punishment from the FA after allegedly headbutting Luke Shaw. The Manchester United left back was left with a black eye after an off the ball incident but, after reviewing video footage, the offence wasn’t deemed serious enough to warrant a red card had the referee seen it at the time.  Manchester United refused  to comment on the incident publicly but Shaw was seen arguing with a linesman and complained about the incident in a post match interview.

Nolan, Jarvis & Vaz Te to play at Boleyn

The Hammers will field a strong Development Squad U21 side when they take on Sunderland U21’s at the Boleyn Ground at 7pm tonight including first team players Kevin Nolan, Matt Jarvis and Ricardo Vaz Te.

Tomkins pleads guilty

Maiga’s misery continues

It looks like Modibo Maiga misery is continuing as he was an unused substitute for Ligue 1  team  FC Metz who enjoyed a 3-0 home victory over Reims without his services over the weekend.  Maiga has made just two appearances for the French side since joining but has failed to make a break through and hold down a permanent position in the first team.

Kevin Nolan was onside

We all thought Kevin Nolan had equalised in the 89th minute at Old Trafford  in dramatic fashion and I found myself celebrating the goal that never was along side 2,500 Hammer fans much to the amusement of the Manchester United fans pointing to the linesman flag.

Reid shows leadership at Old Trafford

One of the surprises that went largely unnoticed on Saturday at Old Trafford was Winston Reid’s leadership qualities. Many Hammers fans were surprised when Alex Song was named as captain in place of the injured Mark Noble who has picked up a calve strain.

Fan collapses at Old Trafford
