First of all, welcome back to our midfield maestro, Alex Song. It has been 6 months since Alex Song last kicked a ball in the first-team for West Ham, but he recently featured in a behind closed doors match against Crystal Palace.
His last appearance for West Ham United was in a 2-0 loss at James’ Park on the last day of the 2014/2015 season.
Alex Song may return for the trip to London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. If not, he will be sure to make the visit of West Bromich Albion.
In my opinion, West Ham have missed Alex Song massively. Although we’ve had the luxury of watching France international Dimitri Payet playing, we’ve missed that crucial defensive midfielder who can also pick out an excellent final ball. I just don’t think that Mark Noble is that man and I’m sure plenty of readers will agree with me.
Furthermore, if Alex Song is to return very soon and stays fit, which will fill the gap for the Dimitri Payet, minus a few rotational decisions, he may be able to push West Ham up the Premier League or at least consolidate the position we are in as of now.
I, as well as every other West Ham fan, welcomes Alex Song with open arms. I hope that West Ham use him as a starter, not a squad player and then Bilic should get the best out of him.
Come on you irons.
