Collins: “I’m doing alright”

J CollinsJames Collins is delighted with his form despite suffering a few niggles from a number of injury problems.

The 31 year old central defender has been massive for the Hammers over recent games and drew a special comment from David Sullivan after Saturday’s win against Sunderland.

As we reported yesterday the Welshman – now away in international duty is our “dark outsider” as Hammer of the Year with the co chairman claiming of his latest performance: “He was outstanding.”

Collins and partner Cheik Kouyate partnered him at the back and Collins said: “I’m doing alright. I have struggled a little bit with some niggles, but I am over that now.

Of Kouyate, he said: β€œHe is so experienced and has played there so many times for his country so he knows what he is doing.

β€œHe has a lack of English, but he is still very vocal on the pitch which is always good.”

  1. Great work bringing collins back in a few years ago. Dont think i fully appreciated what wed been missing until i saw his performances for aston villa. Kouyate was another great bit of business. I remember last year when sam went to belgium to watch anderlecht v standard liege the press all thought he was there looking at a striker. Kouyate had been linked with arsenal for about two years previous to that.

  2. Haha,keep selling Allardyce to the world Lifeisso,youre doing a great job with your pro sam lobbying,lol,btw i am just joking before you start calling it abuse or being a meanie πŸ˜€

  3. not getting involved with the Sam debate, fed up with it and this site is quite biased in that respect imho, but as for Collins, been immense (bar the odd bit of nonsense) since he returned.
