Wonder goal won’t save Ravel


ravel-morrison-west-ham-united_3010039Neil McDonald has confirmed it’s highly unlikely anybody will be leaving West Ham – apart from Ravel Morrison!

McDonald touched on the matter briefly in his press conference yesterday and since then ClaretandHugh has learned the player has been told he can look for a club.

The Hammers will look to get a fee for the player who faces a court appearance later this month but are also ready to let him leave on a pay as he plays basis.

We also understand that Celtic may move in but have yet to follow through on their early interest.

Macca had said: “With the squad we’ve got, I don’t think anyone will be leaving. Ravel falls outside of that. I am not sure if he is leaving but he won’t come back into the squad.”

That may well confirm – as we reported yesterday – that Diego Poyet will be remaining with the squad as we negotiate a tricky January.

Ironically, Morrison reminded everybody of his incredible talent following the news that he could leave in the 1-3 defeat by Spurs yesterday scoring the Irons lone goal – a wondrous bicycle kick.

Sadly, it’s too little too late and won’t save a player who showed he showed he has all the attributes duringin his Premier league appearances last season

There is no way back for the player after a series of incidents which have left the club offering a series of “last chances.”

    What about if he mowed BFS lawn or washed his car ? BFS can get KN to do some training instead.

    Was a little disappointed on hearing that ravel might have kicked his last ball for the hammers but not really surprised.
    However, imagine my further surprise and no little confusion at learning that morrisson apparently having no future at the club scores a wonder goal for the development squad?!

    Then if you read what macca said he stated that ravel had nobody will be leaving but ravel won’t be joining the main squad.
    Now does that mean he is on his way out of the club? Or does it mean he will stay in the reserves untill he improves?
    Or am I still clutching at straws in the hope that morrisson might change his ways?!
