Good afternoon everyone, I hope you’re all having a good week. Here is what is in the news today:
West Ham and Everton are considering Walter Mazzarri as a replacement for Slaven Bilic and Ronald Koeman. (Express)
I would not be keen on Mazzarri to be honest. Watford seemed to really struggle under him last season, despite playing decent football in spells. He cannot speak a word of English either, which has proved to be a massive issue.
I would be interested to see how this develops though, because I would be very interested in seeing Ronald Koeman come to us, should he be sacked by Everton.
Diafra Sakho has been told that he could be offered a new deal by West Ham if he continues to perform. (Mail)
If this was a couple of months ago, I would not have been happy at all. However, its a different story now. Since returning to fitness, Sakho has scored an impressive four goals in six appearances. He is certainly showing his worth to the team and is proving a lot of fans wrong. If he can keep his form up, I would give him a new contract.
Jack Wilshere is considering his future ahead of next summer’s World Cup, with West Ham and Crystal Palace interested in his signature. (The Sun)
I really wanted to sign Jack in the summer, and I would still take him now. However, he is a free agent next July, so I would be tempted to wait until then to sign him.
West Ham’s home game against Newcastle United is not set to be moved to Christmas Eve. (Star)
Declan Rice says he is going to keep working hard in order to get more first team opportunities. (West Ham United)
I love this attitude. I think a few players in the first team could learn a lot from Declan here. I am looking forward to seeing him get more game time, because I think he is a brilliant player and he has a huge future ahead of him.
Everyone apart from James Collins and Domingos Quina are fit and available for selection against Burnley this weekend. (Football London)
