Hammer's New Signing Ready to Rock

The Hammers first team will undoubtedly be tired after Saturday's "heroics" (i.e. chasing around after a bunch of energetic Liverpool youths!) and will appreciate all the back up that they can get for tomorrow night's key clash with Aston Villa. Hopefully the three day break will provide enough time for Enner Valencia to find a pair of boots with longer studs as he spent much of Saturday evening's game falling over!

New striking acquisition Emmanuel Emenike has already expressed his expectation to "always be in the first XI" which seems a tad ambitious given the massive step up from playing in the Gulf to the Premiership! Either way, the Premier League have clarified that all signings registered by noon today will be eligible for action tomorrow.

Given that the negotiations were concluded yesterday evening, one would hope that the admin team have gotten the whole registration business sorted by now (don't mention Tevezgate and paperwork please!) and we may well get a first viewing of our new talent ripping into the Villa defence tomorrow night.

In other good news, chief midfield engine Cheikidh Kouyate is fit to start while Tomka remains somewhat doubtful.
