Davids head for a January first!

O'BrienWest Ham are set for the quietest January in the time David Sullivan and David Gold have held the Upton Park reins.

Slaven Bilic indicated in the pre-match press conference for the game against Wattford that the club’s business had all but been done in the summer.

This was as reported by ClaretandHugh several weeks ago and the club are now likely to only be in the market for a back-up right back if one becomes available on loan.

It’s entirely possible from our reading of the position that this could become the first winter window since they became involved as club owners that the the two Davids do nothing in the market at all.

And it’s becoming increasingly unlikely that there will be any outward movement with every member of the squad performing to the limits when called upon this season.

Joey O’Brien, however is the one member of the squad who will be allowed to leave on a free transfer with a “discussion” to be held on James Collins’ future.

  1. Just keep ginge on board as he more than merits to be involved in this squad .
    At the end of the day Bilic will decide the fate of all the players at west ham , what will be willbe as they say, but ginge probably will be called upon more than he has done so far this season due to injury to ogbonna and rReid , he is a must stay shurely.

  2. It would be a mistake to let James Collins go – Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna being out injured for the last few weeks has proved his value and he hasn’t let the team down – indeed he has performed well.

    You need cover at Centre Back, the nature of the position means that injury and suspension are only round the corner.

    Joey O’Brien on the other hand is a bit of a ‘sicknote’ – you can’t rely on him I’m afraid – time for him to move on and a young fullback to come in as his replacement either on loan or from the Championship – indeed time to plan for the replacement of Jenkinson as well, the economics of the Loan System are barmy!
