Leroy: Wenger must be sick – Song looks a legend

LEROY (1)That was quite simply the best game seen at The Boleyn for many years and every single Hammer was a man of the match.

Alex Song took the official award and rightly so – the lad was absolutely amazing and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger must be wondering why on earth ┬áhe didn’t re-sign him.

Never mind Fabregas – Song is the man. But right behind him was James Collins making some quite incredible interventions with every single player flinging himself behind the ball as City tried to turn the screw . WE WERE AMAZING!

Up front Enner Valencia was magical at times and as for Sakho, there really are no words for the bloke – they must have made up the expression ‘goal machine’ just for him .

But the real point to take from this game is that West Ham are now a quality team. They battle their guts out but that will only ever take you so far and there is serious skill in this side which can keep them in the top four or five for a few weeks to come and perhaps even until the end of the season.

The new signings are the whole key to what’s happening at the club. They have brightened everybody and everything up. Even Carlton Cole poured his heart out for the team and Kevin Nolan – despite only appearing for seven minutes – produced two amazing block tackles.

I’m loving this but I’ve been in the game far too long to get carried away. West ham are a great team but there’s a very long way to go.

However, it really is a great time to be an Iron!

  1. Come Hugh, destroy the club???

    Don’t act the innocent or take the moral high ground, as you have done more to sow dissatisfaction & corrosiveness over the last year than any of my comments could EVER do!

  2. You’re taking it far too personally Hugh, I’m NOT posting for you PERSONALLY but other like minded supporters. Maybe they understand something that I don’t because they don’t seem too willing to post.

    • We are all allowed our views Owl. I’m as thrilled as you at what’s happening. i’M DELIGHTED AT THE INVESTMENT AND AT THE DECISION FOR BOaRD AND MANAGER to work together. These are brilliant times and I am seriously happy to be wrong about Sam. However, anyone who reckoned last year acceptable isn’t living on same planet as me mate

  3. Anyway it’s best we leave it there as we both know where we stand. Got some celebrating to be getting on with.
