Irons set for Everton double boost

ReidyWest Ham are hoping that Winston Reid will be back for the game against Everton with Alex Song  set to take his place on the bench for the time this season.

Reid’s absence was seriously noticeable on Saturday as the Hammers were caught flailing at times against a twin strike force which caused them constant problems.

James Tomkins commented that it was unusual to face a double threat up front as not many clubs play that way these days.

It could have been a whole lot different had we had number one defender Reid at the back – preferably with the gifted Song in front of him!

A club source revealed this morning that the Kiwi is on the mend and likely to make it for the match against Everton although Song is an unlikely starter.

He said: “Winston looks as though he will probably make it and with Alex on the bench possibly coming on as sub we could send out a very strong team.”

  1. That’s exactly what we want ! Our strongest team !!! Bilic has to be brave and show that he will not play under achievers who played for us on Saturday at Watford .
    Although we can’t replace all eleven he certainly can send a message to the squad that if you don’t perform you will be benched !!

    Song noble Randolf jenks Antonio moses oxford carol.

  2. Don’t know how sakho appeared there lol ???????

  3. Good news about Reid, Tomkins and Reid are our best defensive pair.

    It was amazing to see Collins hack at the Watford player, what was going on in his head?
    He’d had a good couple of games but shot himself in the foot again with a stupid rash act – it was astonishing seeing that he’s coming under pressure for his spot in the Squad.

    The most important player we need back though is Sakho, Carroll is just not up to it – his role should be limited to the ‘impact sub’ role when the opposition is tiring and he can provide something different.

  4. Forgot zarate but the one thing zarate must IMO improve on is releasing the ball earlier and playing more one two,s using his pace ! Sometimes its frustrating seeing him Hogg the ball and bringing no one else into play, its all about team work not personal goal achievements,
    Just look at sakho !!!!!
