Bloody nerve. Diarra is complaining that he was misled when he joined West Ham because, after sitting on his arse injured for three months, he hasn't been ushered along a red carpet straight into the team.
I wouldn't mind so much had the guy looked anything more than average when given the chance to play. At Sunderland he was bloody awful, ten yards off the pace and getting caught in possession left, right and centre. No sorry, that's wrong. He never ventured left or right. Apart from ambling forward for corners, he operated in a twenty yard deep and five yard wide box either side of the centre circle.
Against Manchester United, he looked better as one of three centre backs, but even then he made an awful error that should have cost us a goal, losing possession just outside his own box after dawdling on the ball.
I hate the "I have a right to be in the team" attitude. Rooney has been benched by Ferguson, but he responds by forcing his way back in to the team at the first opportunity. And he is ten times the player Diarra will ever be!
The Noble knockers have advocated replacing him with Diarra, but surely even they will accept that desire is a necessary building block for all teams. Noble has it in shed loads; Diarra couldn't even give a shit in a shed at the end of the garden!
Stuff him. Offload. The sooner he goes the better.
