Potts and Nene leaving- Club announce list of departing players

Talented youngster Dan Potts and experienced forward Nene will be leaving the club this summer, according to an official list published by the club. Nene is one of four experienced players to be shown the door, along with Carlton Cole, Guy Demel and Jussi Jaaskelainen.

You’ve got to feel for Nene- very classy player but never quite got the opportunities required to show his talent. Was on big wages too, and him on the wrong side of 30 being probably made it easy for the club to snap links.

Jussi’s been a great servant, but understandable given the rumours swirling around Southend’s David Bentley [Read more…]

Carlton Cole says goodbye- writes farewell letter to fans

West Ham fans may not get to see Carlton Cole in claret and blue any more after the striker announced that he was leaving the club. Cole originally released in the summer of 2013, but rejoined on a short deal later and then penned an eighteen month contract in January 2014.

Cole, lest we forget, took a pay cut to stay at the club when we were relegated and showed great loyalty, when he could have easily picked up a gig in the Premiership.
