Song told ‘one swallow doesn’t make a summer’

songAlex Song will need to maintain the level of performance he displayed in his man of the match display against Manchester City on Saturday evening if he is to cash in with a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Song looked to be returning to his best although some were surprised he picked up the award ahead of goalscorer Enner Valencia and inspirational Dimi Payet.
The club are monitoring Song’s performances carefully indeed but one insider said to us this afternoon “One swallow doesn’t make a summer does it?”
The Hammers have the option to buy at the end of the season and it was made clear he will need to stay at this level or better to get his deal.
Our source said: “It’s obvious the club would love to get him on a permanent deal if he can keep things going – he likes us. We like him. It’s while we even signed him to a loan deal whilst he was injured.
However, the pressure is truly on Alex and every other player as we are slowly developing into a very good top six team and in those circumstances every player has to be on his game all the time.
“We have no reason to make a decision at this stage – we will watch him, assess him and make our decision in the summer.”

  1. It might not make a summer, but it makes for a pretty good ending to a Saturday night :))

  2. I thought he was decent on sat but he was not my man of the match. First 60 mins very good but I thought in the last 30 mins he fell away and even watching the highlights I thought he was not able to get his tackles in. I was amazed that Obiang did not come on but I assume the reason is that we had used all 3 subs. The jury is still out for me. I would rest Noble at the weekend and give Song and Obiang a run in midfield. I thought our best midfielder was actually Kouyate.

  3. Stop that now Ray or you will get a sore throat,
    Who comes up with these words of wisdom was it Cantona
    He was given more room by city then he will against the smaller sides where he will have to attack the ball with Noble and Kouyate as a pack,
    But after a shacky start he cut out the bad passes,maybe they should try those blinkers on Jenkinson
