Exclusive to Vital ! Read now ! The Vital Boxing John H Stacey Interview

A poll of West Ham fans on Vital Football suggests that central midfield is the area most in need of strengthening during the next transfer window

In a recnt poll we asked you which area of the team would need new blood in the January transfer window. The votes have been counted and we can reveal the following:

West Ham fans are happy with their wingers, only 6% suggesting we need more competiton on the flanks; Etherington, Boa Morte, Faubert, Dyer, Ljungberg, Solano and Ried can sleep easily tonight.

The most pressing concern was central midfield, 36% of fans feel that we need more competiton in the engine room. Currently we have Mullins, Noble and Bowyer though some of the wide players mentioned above can play in the middle.

Original Question:

Where will our squad need strengthening in January?

Goalkeeper 13%
Full back 18%
Centre back 12%
Central midfield 36%
On the wings 6%

Should have bought Appiah with hind sight, though in all honesty I think we need a striker the most. Our stand in midfielders are doing a good job, the likes of Bowyer and Etherington/Boa Morte have impressed me so far. Besides, who needs another midfielder when you have Super Nigel Quashie in your squad?!

Oh dear, i heard he was on he's way back too. Not the best news i've heard this year. I agree with the need for a striker as well!! Should be top priority cos at the min we have TWO premier class strikers

Once Parker is back, central midfield will not be the biggest concern.
