Deemed surplus to requirements at Upton Park despite impressing at youth level, poor Robert Hall can honestly feel that after a mere 4 appearances that he never really got a chance under Big Sam’s regime. Small, pacey and with a keen eye for goal, his attributes didn’t fit in with requirements amongst the present muscular Hammers squad and he was let go to Bolton. But even at that distance, young Hall has demonstrated his continued worth to the Bubbles cause by making a key contribution to a 3-1 hammering dished out to the hapless Lions.It is easily forgotten that Hall was voted academy player of the year in 2011/12. Just as Manchester United fans seem to feel that they have some call over Ravel Morrison’s future, maybe the Hammers can consider Robert one to consider for a recall to base in the future? His comments after the match demonstrated his continued affinity for West Ham, so anything is possible? Meanwhile, ex-Hammer Steve Lomas seemed mildly unhappy that Millwall were defeated.
