More and more high praise for the happy Hammers


Peter Crouch is the latest former star to speak highly of West Ham and the players they have brought into the club this summer.

But he reserves particular admiration for Lucas Paqueta who has been showing quite extraordinary form so far during this campaign.

Crouch now has his own podcast and has been singing the Brazilian’s praises in the biggest possible way.

He is also a fan of James Ward-Prowse and Jarrod Bowen but believes in Paqueta the club has signed someone very special indeed.

Making it clear how much he likes the look of the Irons and the signings we have made, Crouch found himself in harmony with the rest of us.

He said: “Ward-Prowse has been a big signing for them, Paqueta, I love him as a player and they did well to hang on to him, I’m glad he’s still playing as well, and Bowen is on fire as well.”

It’s really pleasing after seeing the mainstream media give the club so much stick down the years to now be regularly reading pieces on what a fine club we are becoming.
