Anderson/Haller update

Seb Haller were this afternoon described as being very likely indeed to return to action for the Hammers’ visit to Watford at the weekend.

Both were missing from the team that took a point away from the Amex Stadium yesterday as the Hammers managed to come away with a point from Brighton.

Haller was struggling with a swollen knee received during the 0-5 defeat against Manchester City on opening day whilst Brazilian Anderson left the action with what was described by an insider to ClaretandHugh on e mail as a double dead leg.

But this afternoon were were told by the same source on the ‘phone that both players are a lot better and were 80 per cent certain to be okay for the game at Vicarage Road.

Meanwhile skipper Mark Noble looks certain to return to training this week after missing both PL games with a dead leg of his own but the Watford game may come too soon for him to start.

  1. What West ham needs is a solid centre half cannot wait for Winston Reid to come back West ham’s defending against Brighton was dreadful fortunately for West ham Brighton did not have there scoring boots on it could have been 6-1 or 7-1 for the disallowed goal we must tighten up at the back or its going to be another struggle in this premiership campaign

  2. To say we are poor at the back is an understatement
    Winston Reid is in my opinion not going to play for us again we need to show some steel in defence and also be a little more streetwise going forward such as knowing when to hit the deck like Citeh do week in and week out
