A Wing and a Prayer!
Call me churlish if you will but is the same old record being played?
Not too long ago, I can`t be the only Hammer who remembers the mantra being championed; by those that run the team; relating to Matt Jarvis being a must-buy player, with it being promoted that he would be the perfect winger to provide the ammunition for Andy Carroll (or Carlton Cole) to score the goals that would be beneficial to us.
And then, not too long ago I can recall Sam Allardyce bringing in Stewart Downing, another winger, to presumably provide the very same ammunition.
Well now, the speculation in the tabloid press is that West Ham United are being linked with a move for the Sunderland player, Adam Johnson, yes you`ve guessed it, another winger, with it being promoted that Johnson would be, yes you`ve guessed it, the perfect supplier for Andy Carroll (and possibly Demba Ba) to score the goals that would be beneficial to us!
