Chelsea chase Song but Irons still talking a deal

Song-edited1_3197599Alex Song has reportedly become a Chelsea target!

However, Hammers insiders are convinced that after a season on loan at Upton Park, the Barcelona midfielder is likely to settle for a move to the east end where his chances of first time football are infinitely greater than at Stamford Bridge.

The Hammers have put a three year deal on the table but Song would prefer a five year contract. However, that isn’t an option for Slaven Bilic who is none the less confident he can agree terms with the midfielder.

Chelsea – according to The Telegraph – are willing to pay a fee upfront to take him to south west London although Barca are happy to let him leave on a free thus the ball may be left very much in Song’s court.

We were told: “Alex knows he has a far greater opportunity of regular Premier League football here and is popular in the dressing room. We are working hard to make a deal happen.”

  1. So I guess we’ll now see what Song’s ambitions really are,money for sitting on his arris at Chelski or playing a full part with moving us up to the next level.

  2. Would love to see him back.I get really annoyed when i read people say he went missing for the second part of the season.Well so did most of the team.Song gets ripped to pieces but no one mentions Noble & how poor he was as well.Damn,you could go through many of the players who were a shadow of themselves compared to before christmas.Seems some of our players are immune to critisism,others are fair game for the moaners 😉

  3. Stuck: Well said.

  4. Stuck.as a senior player he very much went missing,a lot.He should have stood up sometimes was crap

  5. I didnt say he didnt did.I said many others were just as bad but dont get ripped to pieces.Did i write it in Arabic? Having trouble reading what i said Rugby? Ffs

  6. Fuxk me!! should have stood up!!I would have loved to see you stand up in a bloody midfield with Nolan & Noble in it Rugby!!Nolan-Traffic Cone!!Noble-decieded to be Mr.Sideways or backwards pass!!You try playing where Song was with those two by your side!!Would have been better off using tailors dummies!!A manager who gives away 65-70 posession!!No out balls!!No movement in front of him!!He might as well have gone & asked for a game at Madame Tussauds.He would have seen more movement around him!!

  7. Maybe so,but Song is most experienced , played at highest level,earns more and should have taken control, even captained the team onwards.You’re,fairways,scholars,bonds wouldn’t have stood and took it so why should he.simple enough for you .

  8. Go back to wetpants Steve!!Tell them your stories about how your a professional football manager!!Simple enough for you!!
