Bad day at the office but there is much to be excited about


Much to be excited about as Hammers ramp up Phillips interest 

Much was wrong with West Ham, as could be seen in the 2-2 Premier League draw at Bramall Lane. The midfield failed to function until bolstered by Ben Johnson, and our passing was woeful.

There was further evidence that many of the Hammers’ second string are not fit for purpose. There was also the issue of Emerson having nobody remotely on his wavelength, which rendered his attacking play ineffective.

However, I think there are many positives to look forward to for the remainder of the season. West Ham currently sits 6th in the EPL, and we don’t have to play again until February 1st. That’s plenty of time to get most of the injured players fully fit ahead of the home game against Bournemouth.

Kalvin Phillips-West Ham-transfer

Much to be excited about, particularly if Kalvin Phillips moves to West Ham.

It also allows the club to concentrate solely on the last two weeks of the transfer window. I’m quite sure that West Ham will sign at least one player, and I’m reasonably hopeful we’ll get two. Assuming one is Kalvin Phillips, I would suspect the second will be an attacking player.

Formidable attacking options

Make no mistake about it, adding a player of Phillips’ calibre will improve this Hammers team, and we’re already 6th. Factor in another attacker, be it Smith Rowe, Boniface, Clarke, or anyone else, and we’d have a formidable team. With the likes of Edson Alvarez, Lucas Paqueta, Mohammed Kudus, and Jarrod Bowen already operating at the top level, I’m actually excited about what the rest of the season may hold.

Two more quality additions would not only help us qualify for Europe again but would give us a real shout of reaching the Europa final in Dublin. The draw against Sheffield United wasn’t great, but everything that was wrong is easily fixed by our returning players, and I, for one, am excited about it.
