No, My expectations of him were high, but I was astonished how poor he was. Never once, I don't think, ever got tight to his his marker and was turned to frequenetly on the inside. Very, very, poor, I thought, which was a huge surprise to me

There's something about Barton that makes me want to see him running around Upton Park in a West Ham shirt, I am definitely a fan! I'd love Parker to stay, but if he doesn't, bring in Barton! :crest:

Cheeky scamp.


To be fair, it's not clear he was referring specifically to West Ham. It's far more likely he was describing his current situation at Leeds

Hmm, not sure about that Ace. What about this line

'Are Fulham interested in buying me? Yes. I know West Ham are interested in buying me, too.'

Sounds like he's excited the class queen bee might be interested in him while he's embarrassed by the unwanted interest of the dumpy frump.

Faubert still wants to leave West Ham

France international Julien Faubert insists he wants to leave Upton Park despite his repsect for new manager Sam Allardyce, after the ‘worst season’ of his career.

France international Julien Faubert is still looking towards the Upton Park exit door despite a huge improvement in his form so far this season.

The 28-year-old came on as a substitute against Leeds United on Sunday and it was his cross that led to Patrick Kisnorbo’s hilarious own goal, while last Tuesday he made his first appearance of the campaign, setting-up Scott Parker for the fourth and final goal in the rout of Watford.

But as far as Faubert is concerned, his days at West Ham may be numbered.

“For me, I still want a move,” confessed the winger, who had a terrible time under Avram Grant last season.

“It wasn’t a tough time last season, I had the worst season in my career to be honest,” he said.

Patience and respect

“I think everything has now changed. The new manager has come with patience and with respect as well.

“He respects all the players and that is not what happened last season,” said the Frenchman with a sideways swipe at his former boss.

Faubert made just 14 starts in all competitions last season and was not seen in a claret and blue shirt after the disastrous Carling Cup semi-final debacle at Birmingham City way back in January.

He may still crave a move, but Faubert certainly has plenty of time for Sam Allardyce.

“We sat down and we talked man to man and I said to him, ‘if you need me at any time, I will give my best any time while I’m here.

“I think that is why I like this kind of man, because even if I’m not in the starting eleven, he respects me and he respects what I’ve done before in football and he knows I can help the team.”

West Ham are ready to hear offers for the Frenchman, just as they are for their three England internationals, but it seems that there is little interest in him at the moment.

“Of course, if I have to stay here I will because this is the best job you can have in your life,” he said. “I don’t think you can complain and I think that this manager knows what he is doing and that is why I try my best for him.”

Nice striker turns down West Ham move


..
West Ham target Eric Mouloungui has revealed that he is not especially keen on leaving his current club, Nice.


The Gabon international, who was first linked with the Hammers a few weeks ago, has been the subject of an alleged £2milllion bid, which was rejected by the Ligue 1 outfit.


However, it is expected that West Ham will return with an improved bid of around £2.5million, which would test Nice’s resolve to keep hold of the 27 year old, who can play either up front or on the wing.


“I do not want to leave (Nice),” Mouloungui told Nice’s official website.


“It is true that staying in my situation (his contract ends in June 2012) is complicated.


“I talked with the president, and we want to find the best solution for the team and me.


“In football, everything is fast, but today I am 100 per cent Nice.


“I am here, I get along with the staff. I have earned the confidence in recent months.


“Now I have to be effective.”


Despite Mouloungui’s recent revelations, a West Ham spokesman revealed that the player, who has scored 14 goals in 80 appearances for Nice, is expected to arrive in England this week, to discuss a move to Upton Park.

Home win will come - Nolan

.West Ham captain Kevin Nolan is confident that elusive first home win is just around the corner.

The Hammers have conceded last-minute goals in losing to Cardiff on the opening day and being pegged back 2-2 by Leeds on Sunday.

Boss Sam Allardyce blamed a "fear factor" around Upton Park but midfielder Nolan insists the players have to learn to handle the pressure.

"We have to deal with the expectation," he said.

"But what I will say is if we continue to play like that, we will start getting the results at home."

Dean successful in West Ham trial


Blyth Town Under-15's goalkeeper Dean Parsons with West Ham United's head goalkeeping coach Paul Tighe.


BLYTH Town Under 15’s goalkeeper Dean Parsons has been signed up after a successful trial with West Ham United.


The youngster has only been a keeper for two years and has got into the East Northumberland side.

The Championship side’s goalkeeping coach Paul Tighe said it was hard to believe Dean had only been a keeper for two seasons as he spent most of his trial with the older squad at their academy, where he more than held his own.

Paul said he is looking forward to working with Dean this year.

It's only eight days, 14 hours and 384,234,235,093,123,126 cubic litres of hot air to the closing of the transfer window. A tough week lies ahead, so let's get Tuesday out of the way quick sticks, in and out without too much collateral damage to the spirit, eh.

Having got shot of Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Liverpool are in the market for a defender to sit alongside Martin Skrtel on the bench. In a break from the norm, they've lined up a player with some vowels in his surname, the 20-year-old Uruguayan Sebastian Coates. Scott Dann is also a target.

Meantime, they're also pondering a bid for Wolverhampton Wanderers' Kevin Doyle, and a return for the poor man's Luis Suárez, Craig Bellamy, who has been deemed surplus to requirements at just about everywhere, but specifically at the moment Manchester City. Sunderland, Stoke City, Bolton Wanderers, Celtic and – please suppress a giggle, spreadsheet fans – Everton are also interested.

Yes, it's all happening at Liverpool. Queens Park Rangers want Joe Cole. Milan are after Alberto Aquilani. Bolton Wanderers will sign David Ngog, in addition to the Manchester City duo Shaun Wright Phillips and Dedryck Boyata. And Dirk Kuyt has insisted he's staying put despite strong interest from Internazionale, who are looking to inject a lack of pace into their front line.

Elsewhere, the Birmingham City defender Liam Ridgewell is a loan target for Everton and Celtic after his move to West Bromwich Albion fell through. Everton are particularly interested in making the deal permanent once they scrape together some cash, says Bill Kenwr … no, we can't in all honesty finish that, we'd just be messing you about.

West Ham United want arch social networker Joey Barton and the Leeds striker Max Gradel, though the latter has his sights set higher. "If I keep playing well, I'll end up somewhere better," he says. Leeds?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are planning to offer daily employment to workshy layabout Jimmy Bullard.

And Newcastle are cooking up a scheme to spend £7m on the Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga.

It is Sam's job to rebuild confidence and rebuild a team.

As for Nolan who the f*** cares if says he'd love Barton here - I would too.



We are under a lot of pressure there is no denying that! we saw that clearly Sunday, but please don't try and compare Sam to Mourinho.

Yes it is Sam's job to rebuild confidence and the team, but not in the media on the pitch, the biggest mistake of any management is to get people to believe the hype they read in the media.

Barton can be good as long as he behaves, would he?

If true, why on earth would we be trying to sign a player who doesn't want to play for us.....I'd rather we use this money to cover possible Barton wages or indeed part of Parkers wages if he stays..
