Hammers fans hail their hero

West Ham loyalist James Collins looks booked to see out the final season of his contract at the London Stadium.

There has been much discussion about the 34 year old’s future but insiders at the club claim he will not be sold.

Here’s how fans and followers of ClaretandHugh’s Facebook forum @https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/ responded to the news at the site.

O Ginge may not be the most gifted player… But no one has ever put their body on the line, grafted and give more for us over the years. He blocks everything, gives it his all since, only one since Alvin Martin. A proper Hammer.
O Ginge knows he is down the pecking order, but what a guy to fall back on when we need him. If he plays six plus games he would have fine a decent job, great player
O He may not get a lot of game time but his presence around the training ground and dressing room are invaluable…. true iron.
O He is a class player and will go down as a West Ham great, 100 per Hammer, he could do a job in defence training when retires for us !.
O He’s part of the furniture now. He’s one of us.
O Keep him till the three youngsters are ready to take over
O Good we need players with heart

  1. He should be Club Captain , not the loyal but totally useless Noble . He is a leader by example and is still worth his place in the team unlike tubby Noble who is Biliic’s love child …must be cos he ain’t no good as a player !!

  2. He must have been the love child of most the managers he has played under hasnt he bubbles.Do you want a dna test to see which manager is his real dad.I mean im not a Noble drool down the chin fan like some but all his managers have played him consistently.
    I will order a paternity kit for you 😂

  3. I think the time is coming where he will be thinking about what he wants to do after he does hang up his boots, so if it is in his mind that coaching is something he’d be interested in, now is a good time to start. Someone on here mentioned the idea of a one-year rolling deal – we still need his presence on the field, but perhaps that could be tied up with a role with the kids’ teams. That way, he stays at the club, lends his considerable weight to the first team’s fortunes, begins picking up experience of coaching work at a professional level, is able to do his qualifications, and assists in the potential future development of the club. Everyone’s a winner.

  4. Crikey bubbles you are really taking it to extremes using the term ‘tubby’ for noble.If he is tubby then i am a ‘you fat bast***’ lol
