This is the last thing the Hammers needed


What a start.

Yet after only three games we are faced with the dreaded international break – the last thing in the world the Hammers needed right now.

No one is moaning about going into the thing with ten points on the board but the team is in such prime form that who knows what may have happened against Man City and Liverpool…our next two games.

We are likely to see several of our players involved although Gareth Southgate has overlooked us in selecting the England squad.

What I do know is that the Hammers need no injuries at this stage of proceedings and David Moyes would no doubt have loved to see the Premier League continuing at this stage with the team in great form ahead of two of the season’s toughest fixtures.

However, the upside is that our newest and perhaps most exiting arrival Ghana’s Mohammad Kudus will have time to adjust to life with the Hammers on the Rush Green training pitch
