Song on his Irons future

SongyIt may have come a little late to make much difference but Alex Song has finally made his position clear: He wants to stay!

In an interview with Sky Sports he revealed: “Yeah, I definitely want to stay here. I don’t know (if I can sign a permanent deal at West Ham).

“I can’t say anything now because I want to focus on the rest of the season and then we will see.”

He added: “I think we have to target an eighth-placed finish this season. The problem with West Ham is that we don’t have a very big squad. I was saying to people it was too early to say that we will finish fourth or fifth.

“I always said if we finish tenth it would be perfect because we don’t have a squad like an Arsenal or Chelsea. When we have one or two players injured, we don’t have a big player to come on.”

  1. Spot on Alex.
    Thats the real reason we are a mid table team.

  2. If we get 5 more quality players in the summer, we will be top six even with Sam in charge.

  3. Ahahah sleeps I Know you wrote that… Yes maybe that’s one of the reasons, but the real reason is that we have a Limited manager. We have quality players but they are Always on the bench… Please stop with the excuses, thanks. 😉

  4. Not sure he has done enough since Xmas for the board to spend half there transfer kitty on one player,
    Thanks for the first half of the season Alex,

    • Bubs we agree pal, he is not worth half of the asking price or the wages. His eye for a pass is too often counter balanced with giving the ball AWAY .He doesn’t score goals, doesn’t defend whole heartedly, and as I have said in the past I have a sneaky feeling his knees are suspect. I think this latest outburst is to try an cut a new deal, because he realises that he is not the player he was.

  5. May have misheard but Song was saying he wanted to stay in the Premiership, not specifically West Ham!? For the right fee and not stupid wages then I’d sign him.

  6. Haha,Sam will never take us into the top six dafishes,even if we had 5 more quality players,he would keep them on the bench or mould them into defensive midfielders or kill their flair.He cant use one decent player,Amalifitano,when we needed him yesterday or Nene.I was there yesterday,it was absolutley clueless football.Dont tell me Allardyce could take us into the top six even with 5 more decent players.Any way its immaterial,he is history.

  7. Come on dafishes,it is time to see the light.Even most of Allardyces staunchest believers have had enough of him.Dont be left behind as his only supporter.His ‘Reign Of Pain’ is over.Come join the party,lol 😉

  8. Hi Tyson, How are you? You disappeared, I was afraid you became a Sam lover… Lol I was ready for an exorcism… Lol 😉

  9. Hi Matte,im good thanks.I was busy yesterday & had no words to express my feelings about yesterdays game.I watched it & was then put in depression for the rest of the day.No Amalifitano?No Nene? Allardce is intentionally playing his own stupid games now im sure of it.Trying to screw us up until he goes 😉

  10. Yes, he’s had a serious drop in form since Christmas, but that doesn’t make someone a bad player. Assuming the deal is good value, and he’s willing, then I’d be happy to have Alex Song as a permanent signing, because he is the kind of player who can push us onwards.

    And that will be even more the case under a manager who ISN’T a self-proclaimed tactical genius.

  11. I personally think for a cut price we should sign Song, ok his form has dipped since Xmas but hasn’t everyone else’s (Downing, Sakho, Valencia) even Kouyate has up’s and downs. Song showed he still is a great addition to the squad, he just needs to regain his earlier form
