Cressy Returns Home while Andy Carroll remains on the missing list

In their second preseason friendly West ham played out a 0-0 draw with Mick McCarthy's tractor boys of Ipswich Town. The game was considerably more exciting than the scoreline suggests with the Hammers (again without Andy Carroll??? errr anybody care to tell us where he's gone this time???? and post-hernia op patient Ravel Morrison who has had some weird pics of him in a hospital bed posted on social media by his agent????) passing over a number of excellent chances to get the crucial goal that would have resulted in another preseason win.
The Hammers closest effort came from new boy, and recent recruit from Ipswich's ranks Aaron Cresswell, who reminded his former employers of his considerable skills with a cheeky chip that bounced off the crossbar with the Ipswich keeper totally stranded. In other swapshop goings on, ex Hammer Frank Nouble went closest for Ipswich on the half hour mark but was not quite able to connect with a Marriot shot-pass-cross effort.  

Now it's off to the land of the long white cloud. Maybe the Hammers can pick up another defender of the calibre of Winston Reid while they are out there?
