Ravel Morrison fans suggesting the club would do well to bring back the wayward midfielder in January are set to be disappointed.
Morrison’s possible return is regularly mentioned on Twitter and Dimi Payet’s injury has only hastened the urgency of some of them.
Among the recent tweets are:
O Here’s to you Ravel Morrison, West Ham loves you more than you will know!
O Would take Ravel Morrison back at West Ham any day, especially now as Payet is injured. If anyone can sort him out its Bilic !
O Breaking: Ex West Ham player Ravel Morrison has been linked with a move back to the club! Do you want him back?g
Twitter is of course a hotbed of chatter, often ill informed speculation and downright nonsense interspersed with some gold nuggets.
However, the Morrison stuff really does appear to fit into one of the first three categories with a club source telling us this morning: “That period is behind us – we are moving on.
“Everybody knows everything there is to know about the Ravel Morrison position and it’s not one that we have an intention of revisiting.”
