Collins out and Chamakh in!
Sounds like a good deal to me! I have no idea how good this guy is but in pictures he looks remarkably like Ronaldo. Of course, if he is bought for £7m and turns out to be crap, his name will go instantly into East End slang as a replacement for chump or a much stronger insult! "You complete Chamakh!"
As ever at West Ham, we solve one problem and create another. If Collins goes, Davenport departs, Neill fails to return, Gabbidon breaks down again and Upson joins the Unreal City gravy train, we are suddenly short of central defenders. Our top half finish was based on a very solid defence last season and as promising as N'Gala may be, I don't want to see him paired with Tomkins in the Prem quite yet!
However, if Chamakh is a West Ham player by the end of today, I will be a happy Hammer. I may even relent on my anti Duxbury campaign and eat some humble pie. Not much though because I am on a diet after all those burgers in the States!
