West Ham are visiting Germany for their pre-season tour this weekend. Other teams in this mini tournament are Schalke, Malaga CF and Newcastle United.

West Ham will play two matches over two days whilst they’re out in Germany. One match against Malaga CF and another match against Schalke, so an encounter versus Newcastle United was given a wide birth.

Youth players such as Elliot Lee and Leo Chambers have both flown out to Germany with the first-team so hopefully they get a run out and show Allardyce what they are made of. Lee has already scored six goals in pre-season so hopefully he makes his mark against Schalke and/or Malaga CF.

New signings such as Zarate, Poyet, Valencia, Jenkinson, Cresswell and Kouyate (injury permitted) will get some credited game time and so will the usual first-team players like Nolan, Reid, Demel, Downing, Jarvis and co.

Lets hope the boys have a better pre-season tournament than they did out in New Zealand…

Up The Hammers!
