Five things we learned from West Ham's 6-2 thrashing of Celtic



Preseason continued with an unexpected thrashing of Celtic in Glasgow. The game lacked the romance of the last meeting of these sides in 2000 for the so-called Di Canio celebration when Harry Rednapp's side lost 2-1.

Bit it was a different story on Saturday as the Hammers smashed in six goals and tormented an inexperienced Celtic back line.

The game may not have provided the test Moyes was hoping for but none the less there were some revealing insights to be taken from the match


  1. West ham are a serious Premiership standard outfit. Even with a below full strength team they coasted against a Celtic side that are already into their season having started their Champions League campaign last week. With Rice, Soucek and Coufal all missing they still dominated and were able to uo the intensity at will.

  2. Said Benrahma is facing into a big season in 21/22. He was impressive last year but gave the impression that he never quite hit top gear. Saturday's performance highlighted his hunger and sharpness with the bonus of a superbly taken goal to underline how much he is ready to step into the gap left by Jesse Lingard's departure. 

  3. Michail Antonio is a top striker - and now that he has taken on the number 9 jersey will hope to hit double figures in goals next season. After a Summer break he looks fit and ready to tear things up. The arrival of a decent back up and / or striking partner can allow for careful game management of his dodgy hamstrings and keep him fit. 

  4. We are still some distance from capturing new recruits that will challenge for first team place. David Moyes indicated that the club were not yet close to any major signings but it is clear that holding on to Declan Rice will require some decent transfer activity. In reality, there's still plenty of time for business and the real transfer action starts in August. 

  5. This looks to be a big season ahead for the impressive Issa Diop and also time for Conor Coventry to make the transition to the first team squad. Both have made strong cases for game time with their preseason form.

  68. CAN I RECOVER BACK MY LOST FUNDS FROM A SCAMMER?
    How to recover your money from fake brokers, fake bitcoin investment platforms, forex schemes, binary, false investments proposals.
    I lost my hard earned money on a fake website. Claiming high return on investment after a monetary space of two days. I invested in their website. After which I couldn't gain any access to my capital and profits after 48 hours, I asked why I could not receive my money, then i was told to make an additional deposit of $26,000 for a dumb reason I couldn't remember. That was when I knew there was something wrong. I am a policeman with two beautiful daughters, lost my wife few years ago, which I promised myself I was going to do all I could to take care of my kids after the demise of my wife. But falling for such scam for acquisitive reason and puting my children's future at risk was quite unwelcoming. I went broke afterwards. During the course of trying to redeem myself after few months of getting scammed, i met with a referral on reddit who navigated me to a hacker on the internet. I patiently took some time to comprehend the core activities of this profound hackers. The Globalkos is a vulnerability coordination agency that performs a hack penetration guage to provides wealth recovery services for individuals and companies who have lost money through fraudulent online platforms. This organization was able to help me recover my lost bitcoins. I am truly pleased with the works of this hackers. If you really need to recover back your lost funds, contact theglobalkos@gmail.com or fundsrecovery.teams@gmail.com.
    However, You can stay away from false businesses online surely to be highly oned firm by making enquiries for their firm reference number (FRN) and contact details and barter their calls on the switchboard number and also never make use of the link in a website or an email from the firm propitiating you for an investment.
