Premier League helped snooker Cole move

Carlton-ColeWest Ham did all they could to get Carlton Cole his move to West Brom despite Daniel Levy making it impossible for the club to complete a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor.

Such has been the player’s loyalty to the club, the major feeling across the Upton Park and Chadwell Heath this morning is sadness for the Hammers veteran.

The striker was left distraught after he believed his move to the Baggies – and presumably regular first team football – had been sorted when things fell apart at the last minute as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy demanded we paid  Adebayor’s £100k a week wages in full.

We were told: “Yes, there were deals we would love to have done but our hearts go out to Coley. It wasn’t entirely a Spurs thing – it involved the Premier League as well.

“Everybody is gutted for Coley -he’s a nice man. The Premier League said we could recall Zarate, by mutual agreement with QPR, then we could have let Carlton go.

Then sadly they changed their minds !”

  1. It will be sad to see Carlton go,i’m sure regular game time would prove him a useful player.As 30 year old’s go he has been relatively under used.Hope all works out in the end for him.A genuine hammer,good luck Carlton. C.O.Y.I.

  2. We will need Carlton now with Sakho probably out for some time because the people at the top can’t read and BFS had to use him toget him out of the mess he created by selecting the wrong team,
    As you HUGH and most fans wanted Zarate shoul never been allowed to leave in the first place and again he could have been available for the Bristol game and we would no have needed Sakho on the bench,
    We had 12 months to replace Cole after we had to beg him to come back last season
    How are we going to attract any good young players after the season we have had in the transfer market,

  3. Another nail in hippo heads coffin!!!!!

  4. So will Cole join Wba in the summer? Maybe he got a pre contract agreement when all was said and done?

    • Conker we need to get rid of him and all the other Championship standard players at the club.Yes Cole has been a loyal servant of the club but his future is elsewhere.These players and an arrogant manager are stifling our club.
