Song linked to Premier League stay


alex-song-west-ham (1)West Ham  loanee Alex Song  has  been linked with a stay in the Premier League when his Hammers loan spell ends on Sunday.

Reports claim he is attracting interest from both Chelsea and Manchester City.

They add the Barcelona owned 27-year-old is classed as a home-grown player according to Premier League rules and that is a big attraction to the Champions league clubs which are dominated with foreign players.

A few months ago Football Association Chairman Greg Dyke outlined new proposals to change the rules governing home grown players in English football.

Currently all Premier League clubs must include eight home-grown players out of a squad of 25.‪

    Yet the BEST MANAGER IN THE PREMIERSHIP is prepared to let him go.
    Oh yea, just noticed poor Sam is not on the short list for Manager of the Season, he must be gutted, he felt sure he would win that after all he did manage a Manager of the month award some time ago. what has he done wrong I wonder .

  • mattefumi is planning the party says:

    This is a great player, much better than Obiang. He should stay, his misfortune was The Fat Man as manager. Even Messi would be a “normal player” under BFS.


  • bubs says:

    Is he worth 80k a week ? How far is Poyet away from him ?maybe if Poyet had been given playing time we would know,
    With Kouyate being a similar player do we need him,I think we are better looking for a play maker first and look for another defensive midfielder second,
    Obiang has youth on his side and should be cheaper,( sorry Matte )
    We do have Noble and Alfitano who can slot in as well as Tomkins who played quite well there last year,

  • mattefumi is planning the party says:

    ahaha… no problem bubs, I always liked Song, I still think he would be good for us under another manager, Noble could sit on the bench. My favourite midfield would be: Kouyate, Song, Amalfitano and a class playmaker behind the forwards similar to Morrison: Gourcouff/Pjianic/Mata/Isco etc.

  • bubs says:

    I agree Mattee I would take what ever I could get for Downing and Carroll,Jarvis and reinvest in 3 skilled playmakers to add to Valencia ( the player ) Sakho,Zarate and Lee
    Should still pickup 3 or 4 freebies as well add a right back and we will be on our way

  • bubs says:

    Roman is that an offer if it is there yours for 5 Bob and if you are a farmer they will make great scarecrows just move them every couple a days and nothing will come near them,
    But they will need 5 days a week off through fatigue,

    Song is not worth 80 grand a week!
    If he was that good barca wouldn’t of loaned him out and now allowing him to go!
    And don’t get me started on Nolan, Obrien , Carroll, Javis, Cole, Demel. I would also out downing, and Jussi. I do love noble but I’m not sure he can bring anymore to the club although if all the players had his ******** we might have a bit about us.
    Bring in some good signings again Daves, I’m not asking for much just make sure you don’t balls up my clubs final season in the much loved Upton Park. IRONS
