After a terrific win against Norwich and a thrilling draw against Manchester United at home in the FA Cup, I had high hopes for the month ahead.
But following a poor performance in the bitter cold away at Sunderland and a disappointing night at Old Trafford on Wednesday, I’m not feeling too optimistic about our chances against a QPR side which has beaten Chelsea and drawn against Spurs recently.
I do hope, however, a quick brace by Carlton Cole will help to settle my nerves at Upton Park at the weekend.
Looking at this week’s issue, there was no way we couldn’t feature the return of Joe Cole. In fact, four of our talented writers have outlined their feelings on the former Chelsea player’s return with all of them agreeing it is a great deal for West Ham.
We’ve also got an excellent piece by Lucy Woolford on the January transfer window and the panic that ensues as we head towards the end of the month and another by Loud and Proud writer Brian Williams on ‘Arry Redknapp and why he is just like marmite.
Joell Mayoh also explains why he thinks ‘Arry has gone from hero to villain for the Upton Park faithful.
Thomas Johnson, writer for WeLoveYouWestHam.com, has written a great piece on FIFA’s team of the year and how many past West Ham players would have made the starting line-up had it been around in their day and we’ve also got Opposition Views from QPR and Arsenal fans.
As always, I really hope you enjoy this issue. Thanks to all our fantastic writers for helping to produce another quality read.
