Despite being touted to leave in the summer James Collins remains a massive favourite with Hammers fans and shared some great banter with them despite being unused substitute last night at the Boleyn Ground.
Collins warming-up on the sidelines with Andy Carroll and Michel Antonio was serenaded with choruses of ‘There’s is only one Ginger Pele’ during a lull in the game from hundreds of Irons fans in the Sir Trevor Brooking lower stand.
When he stopped his warm-up to wave to laugh and wave at his admirers he was treated to a rendition of ‘Your’e not Ginger anymore!’ in reference to his now shaved head.
Showing his naughy side Collins pointed down to his nether regions. When the crowd responded that he could ‘Get it out’ he laughed and wiggled his little finger in the air to save his manly blushes.
Whether Collins gets many games this season or not, he has a great rapport with the Hammers fans and shows he can banter with the best of them.
