Hammers put life into dull transfer window

Well, there has not exactly been lots of interest so far in this month's transfer window, suggesting that belt tightening is going on at a variety of clubs.  Which I think makes it good news for the buyers, as clubs are desperate to recoup revenue they may have carelessly splurged in the past few years.

I'm not suggesting that Real Madrid are in that situation, but I am hearing interesting things about Ruud Van Nistelrooy coming to Upton Park.  I'm in two minds about this, an undoutedly quality striker, RVN has struggled with injuries of late and we don't really need to add to our medical woes.  But if the Hammers staff are confident he is fit then it would be a nice signing.  Feeling the same kind of way about Benni Mcarthy, his time to join us was a few years ago when coming from Porto, not necessarily now.  His time at Rovers appears to be at an end and again if he can stay fit, would be a nice addition.  The other rumours are Luke Young or Alan Hutton coming in as right back cover (or replacement for Faubert?).  Young would probably be my preference, as he is more defensive minded, Hutton likes to get forward in the same way Faubert does and I'm not sure there is a huge amount of difference between them, Hutton may be a slightly better defender.

Anyhow, definitely interesting times down the Boleyn and it's nice to be able to wonder about who is coming in, not who is going out!  More news as I get it…
