Another “frustrated” Iron looks for more chances


JarvisMatt Jarvis has expressed his frustration at being overlooked at the club this season.

The winger came on against West Brom but said: “It has been very frustrating for me, but when you get a chance to play, you have to do well and hopefully I have done that.

He has made just four appearances since October and added: “I was extremely disappointed to get injured before the start of the season, that has cost me, but now I am back to being fully fit and trying to get back into the team.”

After taking just one point from three matches, West Ham stand in seventh place, yet still within striking distance of the top four.

Jarvis said: “The two games before were very hard fixtures and it would have been for any team.

“We were disappointed not to have taken all three points against West Brom, but it is another point and we keep going.”

    How can you value a player at £10 million, and then forget him for weeks on end.
    OK, so we have had a lot of new players in, but surely for that money, in a club our size you would expect him to be at least on the bench. I think he has only now got on because of the players we are losing to the ACON. Jarvis, Morrison, Poyet, Elliot Lee, all these players will now have to come in, and try and do a job after being ignored for weeks. Sorry I don’t think this is at all fair. Allardyce doesn’t rotate his players, only bleats about playing too many games in short spaces of time and getting fatigued. Of course they do but, if you give these other guys a look in even if only as a sub, they are at least involved and feel part of the squad. Morrison needs an arm around him, Lee needs to know he has a future at the club, and Poyet is every bit as Nolan now. I expect this blog like many others will eventually help turn the tide towards a new manager and a new era, because Mr A does nothing for the youth or development squad, and now it seems even our fringe players.

      Another good blog Hammerman6.Hopefully the board will not renew or even contemplate offering Allardyce a new contract at season’s end.
