Old news back again but this time it has significance. Apparently we are back in the hunt for Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh. Allardyce is going to try and tempt him with regular first team football plus a partnership with Maiga.
Seriously these two together would score at least 20 goals over the season but there is a stumbling block. He earns 60k a week!! As West Ham have learn’t this summer none of their targets are prepared to take a pay cut and this wont be any different but maybe the lure of a season in front of the opposition goal with a good strike partner next to him might make him change his mind….Nah!
