Hello Hammers, here is Wednesday’s lunchtime round up.

I may sound selfish here, but I don’t want Carroll to get a call up. I just think we have managed his injury and his game time so well, that it would only end up being ruined by England.

The players need to prepare for the final run in of the season, so this is a good thing.

West Ham remain confident that the heroes statue will be relocated to the London Stadium. (Evening Standard)

I hope it does move, as it will bring more of a West Ham feel to the place. There are still more improvements to be made, but this is a massive step.

It looks as though everyone is, and its brilliant to see. The players are so much happier and are performing better too. Lets hope this continues.

West Ham will offer Slaven Bilic a new contract in the summer, if the club finish in the top eight. (The Sun)

Well deserved if true. He has had his doubters, but he has responded very well recently. If we can finish 8th this season, then I have no doubts that we have the right man running our football club.

Aaron Cresswell says Andy Carroll’s improved form is down to a new belief from the striker. (Evening Standard)

I think everyone can sense the difference from Carroll. He seems to be much happier and much more confident on the pitch. I just hope he stays injury free for the long term now.
