Matthew Etherington has confirmed he wants to leave West Ham. He told the Evening Standard: “I’ve had four great seasons at West Ham but perhaps I need a change.”
On his day Matty can be electric but this season he just hasn’t lived up to the standards he set himself last season when he and Konchesky combined so well down the left. I suspect his off-field gambling problems haven’t helped. He is rumoured to have owed Teddy Sheringham £30,000 at one point. Sheringham has a lot to answer for in my view.
