One rumour I never got around to covering yesterday, due to a shortage of time, relates to an old piece of speculation doing the rounds.

Although our interest in Rickie Lambert has been well documented and our attempts to lure him to Upton Park have yet to come to anything, rumours were sweeping the internet, yesterday, inferring that West Ham were in further talks about the acquisition of the £7 million rated striker.

I can only surmise that they came about after those stories broke about Southampton being a club in turmoil after the sudden departure of the chairman who had done so much to turn them into a Premier League force.

Personally, I`d ignore them, I reckon Sam has his eyes on other targets this window, how about you?
