Shola Off To West Ham?

9 years ago

Just when you think you have seen it all, a story like this pops up.

‘West Ham United are interested in signing Newcastle forward Shola Ameobi and hope to conclude a deal for the 30-year-old before the end of the summer.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is the hunt for a target man after the Hammers were priced out of a move for Norwich’s Grant Holt. Allardyce managed Ameobi when he was boss at St James’ Park and is confident he can convince the striker to join him in East London.

The Upton Park club hope a bid of around £2.5 million will persuade Newcastle to part with their most loyal servant’.

Now there might just be a one in a million chance of this happening but it does smack very much of picking a player’s name out of a hat, pick a club and then find something to connect them. In this instance thanks to ‘caught offside’ website for their exclusive….

Shola has turned into a bit of a strange phenomenon at St.James’ Park, to most people over the age of 25 they can’t quite  believe how he has hung around so long and can’t understand why he looks a different player against the mackems, with a goals record to match.

As for many under 25, Ameobi is the cult hero mackem slayer and they won’t have a word said against him.

Either way I can’t see big Shola moving on, he knows where he’s got it made.
