Well thank God for that! Doctor Evil has decided to send Diouf back to the sewer from which he crept. Apparently the decision is based on Hell Hadji being out of condition, but that sounds like an excuse to me.
The pressure of the blog sites may well have been a critical factor as Gold and Sullivan - attuned to public opinion - possibly decided for Allardyce that this was a piss take too far. Hammers fans have been taking it up the rear for years now, but asking the Claret and Blue Army to swallow this, on top of Doctor Evil's negative tactics and long ball game, was probably regarded as an unnecessary incitement to wholesale rebellion.
So what happens now? Allardyce clearly feels that we need to sign somebody given the injury situation, but who is available? Suggestions anybody?
What is Freddie Ljungberg doing these days?
