West Ham scouts at Champions League Final

Angelo-OgbonnaAccording to ESPN West Ham scouts are watching Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna in the Champions League final against Barcelona tonight.

It was claimed  they thought Ogbonna could replace the injured Giorgio Chiellini if Andrea Barzagli was also ruled out of the final in Berlin.  Barzagli has started the final and Ogbonna remains on the subs bench but what a great way to blag tickets for the Champions League final whether we are interested in him or not.

Apparently Liverpool and Spurs scouts had the same idea and are also enjoying the final in Germany tonight at the expense of their clubs, I bet they are! The other other 17 Premier League scouting staff are now kicking themselves they didn’t think of it either.

Former Hammers Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano line up against each other this evening.

  3. Yeah we got Tiger Woods in return,wondered why Brady was smiling alot recently 😉

    • Haha I thought it was his form at golf that had dipped not his pulling power

  4. Why are the scouts not looking at Messi,Tevez,Naymar, we can buy them with the sabings on Slavens Wages,
    Then there would be trouble at the mill

  5. Ogbonna looked realistic at being unhappy for losing and received his runners up medal with grace. End of report. Right when do I start my scouting job?

  6. Isnt Perlo heading to the MLS ? maybe we can tell him Stratford is in America

  7. Lol,yeah he has agreed to go to Lampards mob,NYC 😉

  8. How did we make such a fukc up with Mascherano he never got a chance with us last night he was brilliant winning so much ball,just what we want now along side Kouyate,all season he has been brilliant for Barc and get none of the lime light with Messi and co around,
    Did not think centre half was a priority or can he play right back as well
