Will Nolan Be Key To Ravel Season?

Ravel Morrison arrived at West Ham United back in January 2012 in a deadline day deal from Manchester United with a reputation of having bags of natural talent and potential.

However, it soon became apparent Morrison was in danger of wasting his precocious talent with a series of off the field incidents and Twitter storms following him round like a bad smell. [Read more…]

Morrison loaned to Birmingham

West Ham starlet Ravel Morrison has moved to Birmingham on loan for the season.

ravel-morrisonMorrison was signed from Manchester United in January with the reputation of being  the best young player they have produced since a certain ginger nut called Paul Scholes.

Ferguson was said to be furious with the demands Morrison made when it came to negotiating a new contract, £40k per week was the rumoured request from camp Morrison, which Ferguson thought was unacceptable from a player who had only made a couple of first team outings.


Allardyce was well aware that Morrison came with baggage and was known to always be in trouble up in Manchester, however he took a gamble on the young man who no doubt has precocious talent, but within no time at all he was in trouble with the FA for homophobic tweets.

Rumours have been rife as to why Morrison has been shipped out when West Ham really need some creativity in the middle of the park, my personal favourite is that while apparently being injured and unable to train he was actually in Disneyland and was posting pictures of himself on-line like all clever truants do! I think his favourite film must be Ferris Bueller’s Ravel Morrison’s Day Off.

So let’s hope a move to Birmingham with regular first-team football can sort out Ravel, otherwise he will be in danger of wasting his undoubted talent.

FA Charges Morrison Over Twitter Comments

New signing Morrison has been formally charged by the FA over his remarks on Twitter.

Ravel Morrison, the 19 year old who was signed just before the transfer deadline from Manchester United is said to have made the comments on popular social networking site Twitter in response to some remarks.

Just last week the FA wrote to Morrison asking for his comments and observations on the matter. The FA have now formally charged the player. A statement on the FA website read: “West Ham United’s Ravel Morrison has been charged under FA Rule E3 for use of abusive and/or insulting words including a reference to a person’s sexual orientation.”

This incident is not the best start to Morrison’s West Ham career and as we mentioned in previous posts, he was also involved in other controversies whilst at Manchester United. Despite rating the youngster highly and saying that he was one of the finest prospects to come out of the club in recent years, United allowed Morrison to leave.

Ravel Morrison, who has yet to play a game for the irons, has until 4 p.m this Friday to respond to the FA’s charges.

Ravel Morrison To Explain Tweet

Hammer’s new signing Ravel Morrison has been told to explain his comments made on the popular social networking site Twitter. he will be hauled up in front of West Ham’s top brass today, Thursday to explain his homophobic comments.

Morrison had Wednesday off and will be asked to explain his unsavory comments to non-football personnel, including club secretary Andrew Pincher, today.

The Football Association have written to Morrison, who has yet to play for West Ham following his £650,000 transfer from Manchester United, asking for his ‘observations’ on the matter. The player has until Monday to respond to their request.
Although Ravel Morrison has deleted the offending tweet,the player still faces an FA charge.

The FA’s guidelines on social networking, published earlier this year, read: “Any comments which are deemed improper, bring the game into disrepute, or are threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting may lead to disciplinary action.
“Comments which are personal in nature or could be construed as offensive, use foul language or contain direct or indirect threats aimed at other participants are likely to be considered improper.”
