Hammers in action but no filming or footage


West Ham and Ipswich Town have agreed that there will be no filming or footage made available of this afternoon’s game between the two teams.

So, sadly Hammers fans will be unable to get a look at the condition of Jesse Lingard whom is understood to be in action against the Tractor boys.

It’s not solely about the free agent however with David Moyes clearly wanting the players to maintain match conditions during the dreadful break,

And that suits the visitors as well with manager Kieran McKenna telling BBC Radio Suffolk. “We’re still integrating some of the new players.

The same is true of the Hammers of course and it maybe the likes of Konstantinos Mavropanos and various others will be involved.

There is very little training time available after the international break comes to an end and it seems a really good idea to play the game in those circumstances.
