Healthy Hammers ready to rumble

swansWest_Ham_United_FC.svgEverybody is back!

That’s the exciting news from the Hammers camp ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Swansea.

ClaretandHugh has received a call within the last few minutes in which we were told that the entire squad is fit and that manager Sam Allardyce now has the tricky choice of deciding on his best X1.

The odds are that Mark Noble and Alex Song will return for the game probably for Kevin Nolan and Morgan Amalfitano but the big question now is who will he team together up front.

Diafra Sakho has been badly missed but although we are assured he’s ready to be let loose again, it would be a surprise if he were thrown in from the start.

The manager tends to reintroduce formerly injured players slowly which would indicate that Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia will start with the Senegal hitman arriving into the fray later as sub.

However, our source said: “There may well be an opportunity for Sam to show us his best team should he choose to take it.”:

  1. Then it’s got to be;

    Song, Noble,Downing,
    Valencia,AC, Sakho

    Subs; Jussi, Zarate, Morgan, Nolan, O’Brien, Demel, Jarvis.

    Perhaps if Noble isn’t ready Nolan will start and if Sam doesn’t fancy the 3 up front he might start Sakho from the bench with Jarvis or Nolan in his place in midfield.

    My God, that’s a strong 18, I love it. I think our 18 is as strong as anyone else’s in the Prem.

  2. Bloody hell I forgot Collins and Kouyete!

    Ok I’m going for;

    Song, Noble,Downing, Kouyete

    Subs; Jussi, Zarate, Morgan, Nolan, O’Brien, Collins, Sakho

    No room for Jarvis or Demel or Cole. Unbelievable squad. You could have a bench of attacking players. Good luck Sam!

    • I like your style sir!
      Can’t argue with your team(eventually!), lol. And with such a strong team/ squad to choose from, 2-0 West Ham! COYI!

  3. I will go 3-0 to the Hammers Phil.

    What a great squad we have.
