Dear me, it seems that every 'big' club that West ham play against are then linked for the following week with a raid for Declan Rice!
A few weeks back it was Newcastle, now its been a week of Goonerama. Dean Jones in Give Me Sport (?Give Me Strength, surely) has interpreted a brief exchange between Rice and Arteta during last Sunday's clash as evidence that Rice is plotting a move to the Emirates. Zzzzzz.
I had a chat with the platform attendant at Stratford station en route to the game on Sunday but that doesn't mean i'm planning to move to work for British Rail in the near future!
Earlier in the week we had the Odegaard shirt signing 'debacle' similarly described as evidence that Rice wants to move to Arsenal. Drill into the logic of that - it's absurd and lazy journalism.
Similarly, in the days following the game West ham have been linked with ex-Gooner Matteo Guendouzi and separately, starlet Reiss Nelson. I'll happily eat my hat/ shave my head/ go on MOTD in my underwear if either actually happens!
That said, i'd happily take young Orban from KAA Gent after last week's impressive performance by the young striker...no doubt we'll have a week of speculationabout a potential move to London after tonights clash.
One Hammers star who certainly won't be heading to Goonersville is Michail Antonio who nailed most fans thoughts about Arsenal supporters in an interview on Footballers Podcast as he clarified for listeners "honestly, I don’t like Arsenal fans! I’m going to say it, I don’t like them. I don’t like Arsenal fans.....They are annoying! And they have always been annoying!"
Yes, Michail, they certainly are and it's so pervasive that there's no need to even get into specifics - THEY ARE JUST PLAIN OLD ANNOYING!
