True Sportsmen, Payet And Hart

In among the action of what turned out to be a memorable match between West Ham United and Manchester City, one of the last few remaining at the Boleyn Ground or Upton Park as commentators insist on calling it, there was a moment that was lost to most of the media and observers, it was similar to when Pele and Bobby Moore embraced following their epic duel in the Mexico World Cup, each the absolute definition of perfection in their footballing role.

Every Cloud Has A Silva Lining, Byram Take A Bow

Every cloud has a silver lining, so the expression goes, and thirteen is supposed to be unlucky, so it must have been with great trepidation that Sam Byram, who had just completed his move from Leeds United, took to the stage at the Boleyn yesterday on the thirteenth minute to replace Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson in the enthralling 2 - 2 draw against Manchester City. Byram was not supposed to even be at the club, yet alone making his debut in such a high profile match, originally the club weren't even going to buy him until the summer.

One Point Gained, Or Two Points Lost? Is This The End?

An enthralling match at the Boleyn ended with Chek Kayoute clipping the bar as West Ham nearly did the double over Champions elect Manchester City, in all honesty a draw was probably a fair result, but yet again Slaven Billic managed to guide his side to a creditable if not totally satisfying draw.

Not since the 'phoney money' of the Icelandic biscuit barons have West Ham United had such revenue streams running through the club, of course the 'streams' from iceland were in fact volcanic based debt, whereas now, under the ownership of the two Davids, Sullivan and Gold, six years into their tenure, are healthy and well founded.

Oh No, Not Pato Please! It has To Be Emenike Doesn't It?

If the rumour mill is to be believed, which it should not! West Ham United are reported to be interested in signing Alexandre Pato, yet another injury prone striker, although the player is supposed to be signing for Chelsea imminently. You couldn't make it up could you? Well actually you can if you write fro the Daily Mail, apparently Hammers are lining up moves for Pato, that old chestnut Demba Ba as well as Emmanuel Emenike.
