The West Ham way, those happy memories of free flowing pass and move football that we prided ourselves on. The Days of Geoff Hurst, Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds and more recently Paolo Di Canio and Trevor Sinclair players who left many a Hammer standing in applause. But to be truthful we haven’t seen it since the days of Harry Redknapp. So which 5 players could we sign over the summer that could come close to that famous tag?
1. Victor Moses: You can probably see a trend, every time I write an article on potential signings he comes up. Moses is a hugely talented speedy winger, who has come out of his shell this season and has comfortably been one of Wigan’s best players. West Ham have a bit of history with the winger as they chased him a few seasons back but Moses decided to join Wigan instead. A move again now and the tricky pacy winger would fit in with the mould
of the West Ham way. Spreading play out wide to the winger who goes to the by line to whip in a superb cross for the poacher to tap home.

2. Wilfried Zaha: Again another player I’m a big fan off. Speedy, young and skilful. A player who is also blessed with a ferocious shot. Like Moses, Zaha would fit in the mould of the West Ham way. A Tony Cottee-esque player, someone who gets on the end of things, a fox in the box type player. Moses and Zaha would also have a very good understanding of each other as well as they are both from the very good youth system at Palace. Should the Hammers go up signing these two players would not only help team chemistry but enable quick counter attacks and hopefully goals.
3. Ryan Bertrand: This player is someone I watched closely in the recent Arsenal versus Chelsea match, a game where he won Man of the Match. Bertrand is an attack minded full backwho loves to get on the overlap and get a ball in. Bertrand is unlikely to be able to join permanently as he is highly thought of at Chelsea but if the Hammers could get him in on loan for the season. His overlapping runs and solid defending could mean the Hammers are far more attractive to watch.

4. Yossi Benayoun: The ex-Hammer is being pushed from pillar to post from Liverpool to Chelsea and now to Arsenal on loan. The player in his West Ham days was the one player who used to be able to find that killer ball to unlock the most suborn of defences. And to be truthful that first season under Pardew was the closest West Ham were to playing the West Ham way. In large parts it was down to the speedy build up play Pardew created. Benayoun’s final ball that season was often inch perfect and if the Hammers owners could bring him back I’m sure he would be welcomed back with open arms.
5. Gylfi Sigurdsson: The on loan Swansea star has been pulling up trees since returning to the Premier league. His eye for a pass and appetite for goals has meant he has quickly become Swansea’s go to man when they need a goal and so often this season he has produced. If the Hammers go up Sigurdsson would be top of my shopping list. Although I suspect he is of many Premier league teams.
Come on You Irons!
