Soucek takes mickey out of Mikey!


Tomas Soucek has told Mickey Antonio to follow through on his Liverpool prediction of this week and he personally will be a very happy man!

The Hammers No 9 made it clear earlier in the week that he believed the Irons were capable of finishing above the Reds this season.

However, we didn’t make the best start today when despite producing an hour of excellent football found ourselves beaten 3-1 at the end,

Nobody could really complain although the manager blamed three soft goals for a defeat which didn’t look on for a long period.

Soucek however was smiling about Mikey’s predictions and was particularly amused by his latest on the Footballers Football Podcast Show in which he claimed the Hammers were going t put Liverpool in their place – below us at season end.

He explained that he and no doubt the rest of the lads will be delighted but he is gonna have to score loads of goals for it to happen!

He told the Mirror: “Micky does lots of interviews that are funny and we just laugh about it!

“It’s great that he has this show but in terms of what he is saying (about Liverpool), it’s something we need to follow through.

“If it ends up being true I will be very happy but he needs to score many goals to get us ahead of Liverpool.”
