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

Andy Carroll has won the Premier League Goal of the Month award for January. (Mirror)

Slaven Bilic says Andy Carroll’s scissor kick earlier this month should win Goal of the Season. (Evening Standard) 

Well done Andy, it was well deserved. Slaven is also right, it is by far goal of the season so far.

Coventry City are in talks to sign former West Ham striker Carlton Cole. (The Sun)

Good luck to Carlton if he does move there. It would be good to see him back in England.

Mark Noble says West Ham are happier without Dimitri Payet. (Sky Sports)

This has been proven by the results on the pitch and the mood at the training ground. There just seems to be such a positive vibe at West Ham now, and I hope it continues.

Jermain Defoe says he was flattered by West Ham’s interest, but he is focused on Sunderland. (Evening Standard) 

He is obviously going to say that, but I guarantee that he will join us in the summer if we go in for him.

Lyon’s president has played down talk of Alexandre Lacazette leaving the club. (Talksport)

The same thing happened last year with this guy, that is why I hope we don’t go for him to be honest.
