New-born Rav “pain free and on fire”


Ravel-Morrison-2Ravel Morrison finally looks to be sorting himself out under the gentle guidance of  Teddy Sheringham.

The 21 year old midfielder may be facing a court case in Manchester on August 28 but there is no sign that it’s having a negative effect his attitude to training – quite the opposite.

Indeed the player is the  first one in and the last one away from the training ground.

Indeed, yesterday he was still working with attacking coach Sheri an hour after everybody else had gone home.

A source told ClaretandHugh: “There are two factors that have changed things.

“He’s on fire in training because he’s pain free for the first time in three years. All the pain has gone from his groin and his running and turning is brilliant.

“Teddy Sheringham loves working with him and goes on for as long as Rav wants to.

“He has also cleared a lot of people out of his life and is living more or less on his own …and loving it.

“He really does seem to be getting it at last and he’s happy with his own company…something we never thought we’d see.

“There’s the court case to deal with of course but once that is our of the way I think West Ham will have the player on their hands they know they have always had.”

    If BFS wants to keep his job at home games it is now a ‘MUST’ with our current squad
    of players that he try’s something much more attacking!

    I wish he could just try something like this…


    Jenkinson Reid Cresswell


    Downing Kouyate Diame


    Valencia Sakho

    downing noble jarvis

    Morrison or Zarate

    Valencia & Sako or Zarate

    at the very least this puts us in the place to see some contribution from the midfield… Nolan looked like a horse who should have been out to pasture the winter before.

    Ravel can do whatever Sheri wants he won’t get picked while Allardyce is manager

  • JagerChugger says:

    Considering we have Noble and Kouyate breaking up the oppositions play I can’t see why Nolan can’t stay forward as close to our striker as possible? Also a Morrison or Zarate will potentially add further worry to the opposing defence with pace, trickery and hopefully threading passes through the eye of the needle Luke Berkovic used to do. If you’re gonna sack Allardici, you may as well sack Nolan too. Both of them are sucking the life out of supporting west ham at the mo.
