West Ham may have found their game changer at last

Nathan Holland showed enough last night at Dagenham to suggest he can make a big difference to the Hammers even before the end of this perilous season.

Last night’s was only his second game back since a serious injury and whilst there is no chance of him starting against Southampton, a place on the bench looks a real possibility.

Yes, I know it was ‘only’ the Daggers but flair and ability shows at any level and even after such a long while away, young Nathan appears to have that in abundance.

He showed a regular ability to go by defenders on the outside or in – a gift that is a dying  in the modern game and although the final ball was missing last night that will come.

I believe the lad has a limited role to play over the next few games and that should things be running the wrong way he can be used to come on as a sub who clearly has the ability to change things.

It maybe an appearance as short as ten minutes or so but it could make the difference in a season where we need a game changer.

It’s a lot to ask of a teenager but should things not be going well I feel convinced this this is the one player at the club who really could take even Premier League clubs by surprise.

  1. Gamechanger? I have to disagree based on what I saw last night.. I preferred the look of Alfie Lewis.I thought Lewis looked very good..all about opinions at the end of the day I guess..
