Reid hamstring – Burke may start against QPR

BurkeReece Burke may be called up to start against Queens Park Rangers this afternoon.

Word from inside the club was this morning that Winston Reid pulled up with a new hamstring injury towards the end of training yesterday and that may well give Burke his chance

He is expected to be joined in the squad by Reece Oxford and Josh Cullen as the Hammers look for a much needed victory.

A source said: “The three are all likely to be included and Reece has a chance of starting. It’s down to the manager now.

“The normal procedure would be for Cheik Kouyate to move into the back line and that’s still possible but there’s some optimistic talk that Reece will be called up.

The 18 year old’s only appearance in the first team was in the Capital One cup clash against Sheffield United last August.

  6. So Burke starts,bet he wouldnt have done even with Reid injured if it hadnt of been for yesterdays sam own goal.I give up anyway.Cant believe Jarvis & Nolan are in then team again.How the f*ck is Amalifitano not worth a go over Jarvis!Sam taking the p*ss again,ars*hole.

  7. So who plays centre forward ?

  9. BFS taking a pi*s… Now it’s clear. What a clown…

  10. Amalifitano & Nene might as well go on their summer holidays early.What a joke,Jarvis gets a go before them.I give up!!!

  11. What an absolute pile of crap that first half was.Cant even string a couple of passes together.It is an absolute fecking joke!

  12. Bfs is definately taking the p*ss.Cole on for Jarvis? No Amalifitano,no Nene,when we are crying out for a playmaker,anyone.This is garbage.He is just intentionally leaving them out surely.

  13. Total joke!!Amalifitano & Nene stay on the bench.I have had enough of this ar*ehole.0-0,need some changes & he uses only one of the three subs available.All because he wanted a point so he could bang on about clean sheets,respecting the point & the other total f*cking sh*t he fires out.Davids,he has to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
