The Iron who can save us from relegation


Lucas Paqueta could well and truly hold the key to West Ham’s season by continuing and bettering a run of form that can save us from the drop.

We and most other sites and newspapers have given David Moyes one heck of knocking over recent days since the defeat at Spurs.

But in fairness we need to remind ourselves that the club’s ¬£50 million signing had been showing himself more and more in claret and blue over recent games and of course scored¬† at Newcastle and showed some really creative touches against Chelsea.

Moyes it seemed had finally found the player’s best position and his absence left the team without a creative influence that could really have helped Michial Antonio up front.

The Brazilian attacking midfielder looked to be enjoying himself more and more as the games progressed and hopefully he will be fit to play against Forest.

The latest word is he has a better than fifty fifty chance and should he be involved I for one will be tipping us to win this critical game.

    Certainly agree as the signings in the summer are mostly proving good buys. Emerson is also proving his worth and of course Aguerd. Its a real pity we have not had their availability until recently. Speedy winger Cornet also would have helped.
    It is what it is so we will have to battle through and get the full benefits of the new players next season!
