Like you all I am devastated by the news that Kieron Dyer will be out for a further four months with a stress fracture. You’ve got to feel for the guy. Admittedly the report was in the News of the World, but it carried too much information to be made up.
Also in the News of the World was that West Ham have turned down an £18 million bid for Dean Ashton. Scott Duxbury said hell would have to freeze over before West Ham sold him. Comments like that always make me nervous!
The NOTW further reported that West Ham will announce next week that they will retire the Number 6 shirt in Bobby Moore’s honour. I don’t support that. If it was to be done, it should have been done within a year of his death. They also say there will be a permanent reminder of Moore in the ground with a giant billboard with a Number 6 on it.
There are also further rumours that the Nicky Shorey transfer is back on and will be completed this week.
