Striker’s “reality check” brings new attitude

sakhoDiafra Sakho has got down to working his way back into favour at the club.

Sak has had what one insider described to us today as a “reality check” after failing his West Brom medical and is now determined to make a full recovery and become a part of the Hammers future.

We were told: “This setback looks  to have seriously changed him. There’s a new attitude and a determination to get fit and play his part.

“He will remain a West Ham player into the forseeable future and he knows he has stuff to prove but he is giving the signs of understanding that.

“It’s a make or break situation with him now. He realises that he needs to get fit and prove himself and it’s great to see him working hard.”

Sak clearly realises that West Ham is now his sole option and has a road ahead of him which involves him in maintaining his fitness if he is to seriously progress in the game.

He is very much back in the squad and it remains to be seen whether he can make his peace after a difficult few months but our source is pleased with what he is seeing.

  1. He is better than most of the strikers we are linked with . He is way down the list of earners at O.S. so give him a raise and a bollocking for being a baby and encourage him to stay .

    No excuse for being a spoilt brat but how do we know that a €30m new striker will not be exactly the same . Save the transfer fee for January but give Sakho a final chance

  2. One trip to the Midlands and you get a reality check,
    Once he proves himself again then club and player need to talk about him and his whole package and maybe he needs a new agent who cares about him and not just money,
    Hope it works out for all
    If he goes back to the player that arrived 2 years ago we will have saved a fortune

  3. Which brings back up the question I posed the other day, with Enner showing all sorts of improvement Andy Carrroll looking like he’s about to start paying back the money he’s cost and Ahew joining plus Fletcher and possibly Calleri, do we need pay out a fortune for yet another striker?

  4. Yes I’m sure he has had a Road to Damascus moment after continuous mis-adventures and as such we should give him a wage rise to congratulate him on this sudden u turn. Must have woken up on planet Zog.

  5. Are you effing sure.Refuse to play, refuse to tour twice then get a pay rise.Not

  6. Also tongue in cheek Spy

  7. he was going to Sunderland until allardyce got England job. He was going to west brom until club take over. he has had the rug pulled from under his feet not once but twice. Now he has to change his tune or get out. Young players can’t see that bad behaviour or poor attitude is rewarded.

  8. Bilic is the key here.
    Sakho will have to convince him about the legitimacy of any “change of attitude”.
    At his best, he is top class and pulls defences all over the place making space for others. If we can rekindle that attitude, I’ll be happy with him staying.
    Otherwise, one word:- Amalfitano.

  9. Sakho can be a great squad asset with a positive attitude and happy and full integration back into the squad . He is probably ( by comparison to various teammates ) on a slightly lower wage deal so ( despite recent history with him ) an increase as a gesture from the club with perhaps some ” apology ” from him would restore the striker we once had ( who if I’m not mistaken kept Andy C out of the team on selection preference on some occasions ) . Andy C will get injured I’m sure so Sakho is important in the absence of any other out and out striker coming in . Both player and club should now ” make the effort ” . I would just add that Valencia has looked VERY lively at both OS games I’ve been to – would like to see him encouraged and play a part .

  10. Sakho , carol , calleri , ayew , payet , lanzini , tore , fegguli bloke , Antonio, check , noble ,

    Goals everywhere you look , everyone’s happy at the club , we move on ! Get over it ?
