James CollinsGinger Pele, James Collins will miss West Ham’s away game at Newcastle on Sunday and also Wales’ clash with Belgium.

“James Collins is out after leaving the field after a few minutes, he has a calf strain,” Allardyce told reporters. “And he doesn’t just miss the last game for us he misses out on the Wales call up which is a sickener for him.”

  1. The Mirror is quoting BFS as saying he won’t be attending the meeting on Monday. Any confirmation Sean or Hugh?

  2. Oh what joy,Nolan is back,we het one last chance to see him cough & splutter his way round the pitch.Great news,****s sake,how to finish the season in style 😀

  3. Just seen BFS on Sky confirming he’s off on hols with his grandkids so this makes me think he knows the outcome already and probably has done for a while,so the big question is why the club is waiting until Monday to put us out of or prolong our misery?

  4. So Burke looses his place again and Song or Noble loose there’s,
    Let’s hope Cole is out and Nene is in
    What am I talking about who cares,
    Let’s hope the Mirror is correct for once,much easier if he falls on his own sword,
    If he was going to stay he would need a whole new back room team as they are going

  5. ahah.. well, good news… so Sam can’t take criticism about his work and he refuses to be denied… Hard to blame him, really… Why should an expert, winning and modern manager be kicked out? I want to sign a petition to ensure that he stays for at least 4 years. 🙂 Show can’t go on without the Genius…

    • Haha if I thought you were serious I’d think you were out drinking with Spoonie and Kevin last night and maybe Mrs A is who you said she wasn’t lol

  6. Be careful of the angry hippo lol

  7. Lol…
