Upton Park team West Ham United is very keen on getting former Manchester United, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid footballer Diego Forlan. West Ham’s chase of much required striking reinforcements would reportedly see Sam Allardyce making a decision to sign Uruguayan veteran Diego Forlan.
The Upton Park team has managed only 9 goals in eleven English Premier League matches and with striker Andy Carroll still out wounded, Allardyce would look to sign a forward during the January transfer window but it is not sure how successful the move would be to get Diego Forlan.
Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio became the first casualty of the season after losing his job a few days ago. He has managed to win just two matches during his six months after the club.
Strangely, there has been no great support for the man who has just lost his job. Former Blackburn and Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce, though, has said that he feels Sunderland reacted too quickly to the current form of the club. He feels that Di Canio should have been given more time. Di Canio came into the club as the replacement for Martin O'Neill at the end of last season.
West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that he is surprised by the spending made by Premier league clubs in this transfer window despite the presence of the UEFA financial fair play regulations. The regulations were introduced by UEFA in 2009 so as to bring some sense into the football world.
West Ham have confirmed that striker Carlton Cole will leave the club at the end of the season. The 29-year-old striker was out of contract and the club has not decided to renew the deal.
This will bring an end to the seven-year stay at Upton Park for the former Chelsea striker. Cole has been an important player for West Ham over the years, but the arrival of Liverpool striker Andy Carroll – on a loan deal – reduced the number of first-team opportunities this season. His form has also suffered as well, as he has scored just two goals in the Premier league season that just concluded.
Although there are always lots of rumours on the internet, and within the media in general, about the top sides in the Premier League, most of them revolve around issues like possible transfers and managerial sackings.
Behind the scenes though all the clubs are working hard to generate potential sponsorship deals because these can be a serious source of income, and one of the rumours going round at the moment suggests that a top Premier League side may be about to unveil a lucrative deal with Jackpot City.
The West Ham United striker Andy Carroll made a successful return to the starting line-up by scoring the only goal of the game in the 1-0 victory over Swansea during the weekend.
The striker had missed the last two months of action due to an injury, but the manager Sam Allardyce said that delighted to have the striker back in the team. Carroll was signed from Liverpool on a season-long loan deal, but he has featured only a handful of games for West Ham so far. This has been due to several injury problems that have hampered the season so far for the former Newcastle United striker.
The West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that he is extremely confident that the former England international Joe Cole has revealed his career after making the move to his former club West Ham in the first week of the summer transfer window.
The West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce is of the opinion that the star striker Robin van Persie could prove to be the difference between Manchester United winning the title and losing it.
The club signed the former Arsenal man for £ 24 million in the summer, which has been questioned by a lot of people. Many think that Manchester United are in desperate need of a strong midfielder and not a good quality striker. However, Robin van Persie has been able to secure 12 goals in all competitions for the club, which have been extremely important.
The West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that he is hoping that the England manager Roy Hodgson will take good care of the striker Andy Carroll, who is currently on loan at the London club.
The West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that he expects the new signing Matt Jarvis to come good after settling with the club. The 26-year-old England international made his debut for the club in the match against Swansea during the weekend.
West Ham United, however, were extremely disappointing in the match after they lost 3-0. Matt Jarvis was expected to provide a lot of crosses for the strikers at the club, but he was good only in certain moments. As a result, many have questioned the £ 10.5 million the paid by West Ham United for the player to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
