Hammers changes on the cards


DemelIt could be all change in the Irons line-up tomorrow with Guy Demel remaining a big doubt, Mark Noble defintely out and Matt Jarvis looking to feature for the first time this season.

Demel may have missed out regardless of the injury as manager Sam Allardyce looks to attack bottom three outfit Queens Park Rangers.

And the pace of Carl Jenkinson – called up for the England under 21s this week – could be a critical factor down the right side.

Jarvis looks very likely to get a chance at some stage but the most controversial selection is likely to be Kevin Nolan who could well be given a start at the tip of the diamond.

Rangers midfielder Sandro has been cleared to play after suffering a heavy blow to the head in last weekend’s 2-1 league defeat at Southampton while Joey Barton and Jordon Mutch face ¬†fitness tests.

    If the Hammers drop this game, for whatever excuses BF Sam will come up with, then the owners need to look at Allardyce full stop.The question is will they have the resolve to do anything?Will BF Sam revert to the rubbish that was served up last season?His aim all along has been self preservation. Allardyce was engaged to get us back into the Premier League.He has done that and now we need an innovative manager to take the Club forward.Not the dinosaur we have now.
