  1. Good news, Hugh. Fingers crossed. Hammers crossed.

  2. Yes good signing but where do you play him

  3. You keep spelling his name wrong.I had to double check myself too.

  4. Have the fear over this one, but hopefully I’m wrong. Just doesn’t seem like the kind of player Moyes likes. Can see him just taking Anderson’s place on the bench.
