‘Bish’ back for big game: “I may be coming home”

BishFormer Hammers midfield maestro Ian Bishop flew into Manchester from the US for today’s big match between the loves of his life and laughed: “A draw is gonna do me today.”

And ClaretandHugh – talking to one of its favourite all time Irons – can reveal that the wonderfully skilled former midfield ace is considering a permanent move back to the country revealing: “I’m missing the game so much we’re considering coming home .”

Bish has never been able to separate the two great loves of his life- Hammers and City – declaring: “They are in me in equal parts. I just hope it’s a draw – that’ll do for me .

“It’s bigger for City than it is the Hammers but I don’t want to see the Irons  beaten but I need City to win the Title so it’s a no brainer – a draw will do very nicely thanks.

He added: “I really feel at the moment I want to come home. I’m missing the football like crazy.

“I’m an odd story: “I was supporting at Arsenal in Liverpool when I was six joined Everton and am now split between City and the Hammers.
